I was going to kick off the Entertainment Link-Off with Zoe Saldana in celebration of the release of Avatar. However, Jessica Stroup’s photoshoot with Complex snagged my attention sometime midweek and I changed my mind. After seeing this, I sort of regret not tuning into 90210 this season. Well since there isn’t anything on during the winter break… might as well catch up I suppose.

They’re seeing blue at the box office. Avatar will easily top this weekend’s box office but it will miss the record opening weekend by a mile. I suppose the lengthy run time did hurt its chances. (Nikki Finke) On the bright side, Steven Spielberg really digs the movie!
Chances are you saw Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and didn’t like the film. Most of you have written about how it sucked or at least had a friendly conversation with fellow filmgoers about how it could have been better. Well a man from Milwaukee outdid us all. He made a 70 minute video review of the film. If Lost producer Damon Lindelof recommends it, you know it’ll be mindblowing. (Slashfilm)

After Seth MacFarlane is done poking fun at the Star Wars series, he’ll move onto other things like Back to the Future or Star Trek.

House was supposed to return on January 23rd, but FOX decided to stick it to NBC by moving it up two weeks to face off against Chuck. They’re trying to get our favourite Nerd Herder canned! To those that watch both House and Chuck: let’s all tune into Chuck for that week and tell FOX to fuck off. (Broadcasting and Cable) Later in the week it was also revealed that FOX is moving Fringe to face off against Heroes that night too. Clearly they’re messing with NBC, but since I don’t care about Heroes, they can do whatever they want during the 9 pm timeslot.
