The movie Coraline based on the Neil Gaiman book opens today. Here’s a trailer (spotted on Gaiman’s blog) featuring the author discussing fear of buttons. You’ll never look at a rag doll the same way again.

Trailer for the next season of Torchwood was released yesterday. I must admit, I sort of lost the plot toward the end of the last season. Got busy, got behind in watching and finally just gave up on the last fews eps. From the looks of this trailer though I might just give it a go again.

Need a laugh? Mosey on over to this post by actress Felicia Day on the phenomenon of hardy highland swains in romance novels. Do yourself a favor though. Put down the hot drinks and dangerous objects while reading or you might hurt yourself.

What we’re watching
For the first time in a long time, there are quite a few television shows that I like, and more down the pike that look good. Bones , Fringe, The Mentalist and Burn Notice were back in January, although Bones has been a tad weird, and not in a good way. Chuck and Life both returned this week with strong episodes, and of course there’s Battlestar Galactica. Blood on the Scales is the episode tonight, and it looks good. Very good.

Shows we’re looking forward to include Dollhouse, the new series from Joss Whedon with Eliza Dushku and Tahmoh Penikett, and Castle, starring Nathan Fillion. Dollhouse premieres next Friday February 13th on Fox, Castle on March 9th on ABC.
