Wednesday roundup

Propworx has a video preview of the items that will be auctioned in the sixth week. The Caprica auctions have now been extended to nine weeks.

A heads-up to the UK fans: there is still no word on when the second half of the season will air, but if you follow @Sky1Insider on Twitter, you'll probably be the first to find out.

Other fronts:

Esai Morales will attend the CineFestival, which opens in San Antonio tomorrow. Here is what the press release says:

Television, stage and film actor Esai Morales will attend the Saturday night festivities of the The Guadalupe’s CineFestival en San Antonio, the nation’s longest-running Latino film festival, celebrating its 33rd anniversary February 3-6, 2011 at the historic Guadalupe Theater in San Antonio, Texas. The Guadalupe will proudly present the "Emma Tenayuca Award for Activism in Media," a special Premio Mesquite Award, to Mr. Morales based on his work as one of the founders of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts. The group works to expand the presence of Latinos in media. The award will be presented to Esai Morales at the Premio Mesquite Awards Dinner, hosted by Jesse Borrego, on Saturday, February 5, at 6 pm in the Progreso Building across the street from the Guadalupe Theater.

Paula Malcomson's episode of Private Practice will air on Thursday, February 17. Here is the synopsis, from Spoiler TV:

"Home Again" - After tragedy strikes the Montgomery family, Addison goes home to Connecticut and Sam and her friends decide to join her. Meanwhile, Sheldon and Violet clash when Sheldon's death row patient confesses to a crime that his wife, one of Violet's patients, believes he didn't commit, on "Private Practice," THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

And it looks like Paula's next gig will be on Fringe. A bunch of photos of her on the set appeared on Flickr yesterday.

Jane Espenson has been tweeting pictures from the set of Torchwood: Miracle Day. For more info on the new season, check out this interview with Russell T. Davies. Also, Blastr has a bunch of stills from the first episode.

Elsewhere on Twitter, Glee's Cory Monteith posted this scary little pic of Eric Stoltz on the set. (Last reminder: Off the Map, tonight at 10, ABC.)

Frankie & Alice with Brian Markinson is out in theatres this week and Conviction with John Pyper-Ferguson gets released on DVD.

Screen Rant has an update on the John Carter of Mars remake, with Polly Walker.

The final season of Friday Night Lights has a definite premiere date on NBC: Friday, April 15 at 8 pm. The second to last episode airs on DirecTV tonight, and the season five DVD will be released on April 5.

Screen Junkies talked to Patton Oswalt at the VES Awards yesterday. No nice standalone quotes, so hit the link for the interview.

And Guido Superstar: The Rise of Guido, with Aleks Paunovic and Michael Eklund, hits the big screen in Vancouver this weekend. The Vancouver Observer has an article about the film and the trailer is on YouTube.
