When British actor John Hurt passed away in January, news editors around the world quickly started broadcasting clips from the actor’s many iconic roles. But it was maybe not the smartest idea for one of them to air Hurt’s most gory (and memorable) movie moment immediately after kids finished watching Saturday morning…
ITV released the first clip from its 10-part Jekyll & Hyde series. And it turns out that Jekyll/Hyde is basically a Victorian superhero in it.
We've had teasers for a while, but the first trailer for Thunderbirds Are Go!, ITV's remake of the classic British puppet series Thunderbirds is here — and it's packed with beautiful practical models, slightly creepy CG people, and plenty of nods and winks to the classic works of Gerry Anderson. Check it out!
Since io9 is looking at the spy genre, it would be remiss of me not to talk about one of the very best spy shows ever made, The Sandbaggers. It's unfortunate that it's not as well known as it should be, because it's also one of the most realistic spy shows ever made.
It's a transatlantic duel of the Frankensteins! In one corner, ITV's Sean Bean-starring period drama The Frankenstein Chronicles. And in the other corner, Fox's crime drama Frankenstein. Fight, fight, fight!
Here's your first good look at Thunderbirds Are Go!, the forthcoming reboot of the 1960s British scifi series Thunderbirds.
ITV in the UK has announced a 10-part Jekyll and Hyde series. As is traditional by now, it has been reimagined. This time by Charlie Higson (The Fast Show, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)) as an action adventure. [Coming Soon]

Maybe, being a generally optimistic person, you might be inclined to think that things are a little more equal outside of the US. What about…
Apple's longed-for à la carte channels-as-apps TV is proving remarkably slow to arrive. But Time Warner's CEO, Jeff Bewkes, can't wait to get one.
According to a slide uncovered by the Verge, Best Buy is asking its customers for thoughts on a 42-inch, $1,500 Apple HDTV. And it sounds dreamy: runs iOS, full App Store and iCloud support, an iSight camera. Too bad it's all probably just a guess.
So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.

As Jason noted in his review, the Boxee Box was a really good local media streamer, but the software was also pretty damn buggy. Well hopefully that will change for the better now that Boxee has issued their first firmware update. Not only does it offer 30 bug fixes, it adds improvements to navigational and sorting…
