Lord of the Rings: Return of the King News

Trailer. The new trailer is available for viewing and download. Do yourself a favor and take the time to download the largest version your bandwidth can handle.

TV News

Joan of Arcadia. Lots of great praise out there for the wonderful, outstanding Joan of Arcadia that premiered on CBS on Friday night. An excellent outing that ponders the question crystalized by the Joan Osborne song, the show takes the conundrum very seriously - and in doing so, gives the matter just the right tone. Lots of praise has been heaped on the show - do yourself a favor and check it out.
BOTTOM LINE: Best new show on TV, so far.

The Amazing Race. Won the Emmy for Best Reality Program - that's not saying much, considering what else is on out there. Does anyone watch Big Brother anymore? Anyway, this is a truly great show, and deserved the win. Last week, Variety reported that CBS has given the go-ahead to cast a fifth edition of “The Amazing Race,” even though the network hasn’t actually ordered a fifth season.
BOTTOM LINE: Best Reality program will be renewed and run Summer 2004.
