We could take it as a compliment. On Saturday, BBC America debuts the failed British sci-fi series "Outcasts" in the odd but not unappreciated hope that the non-action-filled, post-apocalyptic drama will not bore Americans as much as it did the Brits. Anything's possible, I suppose. "Ugly Betty" fans will be happy to see Eric Mabius as a creepy quasi guru, and there appears, at times, a far-off glimmer of "Battlestar Galactica," if only in that flat metallic light so popular with interior sci-fi shots.

Jamie Bamber, known as Lee "Apollo" Adama on "Battlestar Galactica," is shooting the newest version of the "Law & Order" franchise -- set in London, where he was born. Still, he's a bit homesick for L.A.: "In my head, I'm based in California and I happen to work in the UK." It's Friday. What are you doing today? I am going to a Christmas fair at my kids' school, and then I'm going to the theater in the West End. I'm going to see Ken Branagh on the stage in his latest triumph.

Will you talk about: "Fame"? I get giddy just watching the commercials. Give me abnormally talented singing, dancing kids any day. From the looks of the trailer, this big-screen reboot has a 50-50 shot of giving me exactly what I crave. It could be plain bad or good-bad, a la the earnest 2000 dance film "Center Stage," a classic on many a DVD shelf. (Friday) Grab some Wensleydale! It's time to talk about: "Wallace & Gromit: A Matter of Loaf and Death" A new Wallace & Gromit adventure on DVD?
