Here's a new promo for season five, featuring a few glimpses of the season opener, "Sympathy For The Devil":

And Eric Kripke says Sam's storyline will be similar to that of an "ex-addict" in the new season. Just as long as we don't go into "Willow in Buffy season six" territory, everything will be fine. [The CW Source]


And here's a video I don't think we've shown you before. [TrekMovie]


New set photos purport to show you Tom Welling filming season nine, in a vaguely Matrix-esque outfit. But it's super hard to make out anything. More at the link. [SpoilerTV]



In episode 3x03, "Chuck Vs. The Angel Of Death," we'll meet Premier Allejandro Goya, the dictator of the fictitious Latin American country of Parador. (Is the name intentional?) And Goya has come to the United States to announce his country will be holding democratic elections for the first time. [SpoilerTV]


Stargate Universe:

Luis Ferreira's character, Col. Everett Young, is "a rock – cool and unflappable, a solid and steady leader... Young is the calm in the eye of the storm, the guy you want calling the shots when things get heated." And episodes 19 and 20 are a linked storyline with a "B" storyline that's still undergoing some revisions, and there's a surprising ending. [Joseph Mallozzi via SpoilerTV]


Also, Michael Shanks, who has a super-brief role in the series opener, will have a more significant cameo in another episode later on. [Gateworld]


Episode 4x07 is called "Strange Attractors." [SpoilerTV]
