Whoops! I've been sick this week, and completely forgot yesterday's poll post here in the blog. I'll fix that now.
It would figure that the Boosterrific fans would prefer continuity. Without continuity, there would be no Blue and Gold, no Booster Gold Volume 2, and no Extreme Jsutice. (You have to take the good with the bad.)
Last week's poll question: How do you feel about shared universe (in-continuity) comics? (46 votes)
So the Booster Gold television project might not be dead, but it also doesn't seem to be on SyFy's radar, either. That might not be such a bad thing. Different networks have different business strategies, target audiences, and aesthetics. Is Booster Gold a better fit somewhere other than SyFy?
This week's poll question: What television network would you most like to see air a Booster Gold television series?

Whatever you think about Doctor Who (who turns 50 this year and has indubitably earned his position as the International King of the Time Travelers), the star of this video is the Booster Gold costume!
That star... that cape... that's Booster Gold's original costume! Aaron Wahl, you are Boosterrific!
Thanks to Double Midnight Comics for hosting such a cool Free Comic Book Day and NerdCaliber.com for hosting such a cool video via YouTube.

For the occasion of tonight's Arrow season finale, Executive Producer of Arrow Andrew Kreisberg, who also happens to be the man behind the attempt to turn Booster Gold into a television show on the SyFy network, was interviewed by Craig Byrne of GreenArrowTv.com. There's a bit of that interview very important to Booster Gold fans:
GreenArrowTv.com: So there's no chance the two shows [Arrow, Booster Gold] could exist in the same universe?
Kreisberg: There's always a possibility. There's a line in the Booster Gold pilot [script] where somebody says "we finally have our own hero. Not like that nut in Starling City with the hood." I don't know if they're going to let me keep that line over there, if they [Syfy] actually make the pilot, but it sort of makes me smile to think that it's the same universe.
Did you catch it? Here, let me emphasize the important part.
"...if they [SyFy] actually make the pilot...."
That's the man making the show admitting that he has no idea whether SyFy is still working on his show over a year after SyFy announced it. Draw your own conclusions about that.

Remember that New 52 Booster Gold bust that DC Entertainment released last year that no one really likes because it's Booster's Nu52 costume?
If the $70 asking price was the only thing keeping it off your mantelpiece, DC is including that bust with several others in the "Buy One Get One 50% Off Sale" at shopdcentertainment.com. Yes, you have to spend $70 to save $35, but that's why DC made a New 52 Blue Beetle bust, too.

This past weekend, Russ Burlingame interviewed Smallville Season 11 writer Bryan Q. Miller for ComicBook.com. The interview primarily focuses on Miller's work with Superman and his creator-owned Earthward but doesn't forget the important stuff. By which I mean Skeets.
ComicBook.com: Skeets was barely in the television show, so there didn't appear to be any need to include him as a stand-alone character in [Smallville Season 11 #13]. Why choose to include Skeets, especially in a physical form?
Miller: Because I love Skeets. I've always loved Skeets. He's the straight man. And, as far as I'm concerned (thanks to Justice League Unlimited), he sounds like Billy West.
ComicBook.com: Do you realize that you've earned the eternal gratefulness of Boosterrific.com, who have been missing Skeets since before Flashpoint?
Miller: I didn't then, but I do now — and I'm happy to help!
