As we eagerly await the season three premiere of “Downton Abbey,” consider this over tea and crumpets: life before Lady Mary was mucking up her love life and Lady Sybil was wearing pants. Julian Fellowes, the creator of of the show, has announced his plans for a spin-off drama, following the courtship of Lord and Lady Grantham. At a recent BAFTA lecture, he said, “I do have an idea of doing a prequel of the courtship. He only fell in love after they married. He married her for the money. That is something he came to feel quite guilty about.” Here’s what we have to say on the matter: SMASHING. Cora … that minx. And now I’ll have to talk in a British accent for the rest of the day.

“Star Trek XI” Trailer Boldly Hits The Interweb

So, it’s still nearly six months until the moment Amelia and I have been waiting for — “Star Trek XI” comes out in May 2009! But they’re already Kirk-teasing us (get it?) with two movie trailers. I have to say both of them totally burst my nerd bubble. Ugh, the Captain Chris Pine looks like the kind of tool you accidentally have sex with while on vacation. Only the combination of sun and margaritas would get your guard down enough to do his kind of douche bag. Honestly, I’d rather have sex with 70-something Shatner. But on the up side, Spock is one hot of hunk of space junk! So, maybe, just maybe there’s hope this prequel won’t suck. Above is trailer #2, which at least has some original content. Trailer #1 is just about a boring blow torch. [Star Trek Movie Site]
