Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun Update
After checking with our video game connections we have the latest delay in the release of Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun. *SOB*
The Magnificent 7 finally arrived in Sweden May 16, 1999!! Here in Sweden
the series is called "7 rider igen" which in English is "7 rides again".
It is being shown on Swedish tv3, Sundays at 23.00 CET, so far 5 episodes have been shown and there are 3 more to go. After those 8 epis, I don´t know if there are more to come since tv3 hasn´t replied to my email yet. Sadly, there has been no response to the series at all in the newspapers. After the first show had been on I immediately bought some of the newspapers. They usually write something about what is on tv, but not a word was mentioned about Mag7! Shame on them!
Even Swede tv3 hasn´t promoted the series so much either. For example, very few commercials, not a word about the show on their site and the late hour it is being aired. It was pure luck when I read my tv-guide real close a few weeks ago and found out that Mag 7 was gonna be shown on tv3. Shame on them too!
I like Mag7 alot! It contains all that a good family show should have and of course MB! And all dressed in black too!!! Happy news for the Danish Michael Biehn fans too! Mag 7 is gonna be shown on Danish tv3 starting June 20 at 19.05 CET! So load up those vcr´s..... In Denmark the series is called "Vestens harde drenger" which in English almost is " The tough guys of the west". On the danish tv3 site they have written a small piece about the series and even have a small pic http://www.tv3.dk/program.asp?p=820 .
I still haven´t found out yet when the series will be shown on the Norwegian tv3 but some time soon I believe. In Norway, Mag7 is called "Syv uovervinnerlige" which in English is "the invincible seven." Guess it must be kind of funny for you english speaking fans to read all those different titles for the same show. :o)
That is all for now from Scandinavia!
Lots of hugs to all of you magnificent Biehn Buddies!
Fear and Loathing on the Set of Cherry Falls (SPOILERS)
by Al Harris
I just ate some spicy chicken fingers. I mean this suckers were hot. They
were so hot, they reminded me to write this article. Where it the parallel?
Well the movie Cherry Falls is HOT! HOT! HOT! Its hot in two ways, its a hot
media topic, and its subject matter is spicy.
I have managed to find out that the episode in which Michael guest starred
was from the third season of "Family" and is listed as Episode # 71. It was
called "The Athlete" and it aired on March 1st, 1979.
Michael played Jake McAlister, a high-school basketball star who was diagnosed with cancer after injuring his leg. Buddy, played by Kristy McNichol, tried to help him accept the fact that he might lose his leg and therefore his promising career as a professional basketball player.
This was a very touching episode and Michael played the character with the right amount of anger, bitterness, and internal conflict over the choice of losing his leg or his life.
This made for TV movie from 1979 starred Michael Biehn and Linda Addams,
and was based on the novel "Haunted Summer" by Hope Dahle Jordan. Its focus was
on two teenagers who "experience fear and guilt when one becomes involved
in a hit-and-run accident and the other cheats in order to win a tennis
scholarship" (Library of Congress). The two teens confide in each other,
then later their families, owning up to their mistakes.
Although this movie was originally shown on ABC as an "Afterschool" special, it was also released on video by Time-Life Multimedia, 1979. It was issued in several video formats.
