Greg Berlanti ('Brothers & Sisters', 'Eli Stone') and Rene Echevarria ('Star Trek', 'The 4400') are teaming up to create 'The Return' for ABC. It's about the impact on the world when aliens land.

In Toobworld, that line should read "when aliens land... again."

Toobworld is being constantly invaded - I brought this up in a Deep Six post a few weeks ago! - and always seems to not only recover from them, but also forget they even happened.

Otherwise, why doesn't anybody on 'The Closer' mention the Tenctonese landing in 1995? For that matter, shouldn't George Francisco be a member of the Priority Homicide Squad?

The most disheartening element of the news item about 'The Return' is that it looks to be wide-ranging enough for them to bring the White House in on this. That means that they'll probably create a fictional President to add to the mix, and thus banish the series to an alternate TV dimension.

Maybe 'Commander-In-Chief' could use a little company in that TV dimension. It's about time for a change in administrations from Mackenzie Allen's. If she was voted out of office, that is.....

For now, we'll just have to take a wait and see attitude towards the project.
