"It's the Fargate. "F" is different from that movie which I have never seen."

Edymnion: SpacemanSpoof: Just re-watched it recently with my wife.  She liked it, too, although she seemed less interested in the plot and more in Ben Browder and his leather pants...

Yeah, but come on, we were just as focused on Chiana's pants.

Look, if I am shot through a wormhole to a distant part of the galaxy, trapped on a living ship full of escaped criminals and I am with anyone half as hot as Claudia Black, I'm not worrying about getting back to Earth.


I would let Rosie O'Donnell pull out all my taint hair with an Epilady just for a chance to drink Claudia Black's dirty bathwater.

Came to say this. Friday nights it used to be worth staying home to watch Sci-Fi channel.


Add me to the list of folks who couldn't get enough of the big bug.  They nrrd to revive that and Firefly and I'd be happy.

/please note that I said 'revive', not 'reboot'.

A number of years ago, I met Bonnie Hammer, and she asked if I watched her channel.

"Why, yes, I love science fiction TV."

"What's your favorite show?"

I smiled, and said (very pleasantly) "Farscape." (this was about six months after the cancellation)

She cringed, and took a step back. There was actual fear in her eyes. Yay!

serial_crusher: The two things I didn't like about that show:
1) Chrichton hallucinating all the time.  IASA doesn't hire just anybody as an astronaut.  You have to go through psychological screening and shiat.
2) That freaking guy with the half-face mask.  Enough with the melodrama already.


Only if you agree to stay on your side.

MadSkillz: StretchCannon: Lets not forget Bonnie Hammer ruined the SciFi channel. This is all her fault. Because she's a moron.

Our equivalent channel in Canada, "Space" is starting to show signs of going that way. They recently rebranded all the bumpers and whatnot to some severely generic shiat. The previous logo (a galaxy) has been replaced by an opaque blue circle (like Oxygen?), and the bumpers remind me of the ones i saw on Sci Fi when I was briefly in the states (a flashing red light at a train station going ding ding, ding ding, with the logo inside it evokes strong deja vu).

Space airs this stupid ass show about makeup designers called "face off" and also airs Castle, despite not being sci-fi and only tangentially related to sci-fi because Nathan Fillion.

One day I assume there'll be no more shows with the word "star" in the title. :(


Face Off is a SyFy original, I believe. Which can only mean you either have or are soon to have its seemingly endless parade of ghost derp shows. Because who doesn't love watching idiots jump at every strange noise, every five minutes, for an hour? Multiple times a night. Multiple sets of idiots a night. fark you, SyFy. fark you.

TuteTibiImperes: There's supposed to be a SyFy series called Defender that's going to be a 'space opera' but I haven't seen any promo for it.  Canceling SG-U right when it was getting good was a crime.  Supposedly SyFy is also working on some space based desperado/western type of show, which while it sounds like a Firefly rip-off, I'd be happy to take it.

I don't know how I feel abut Defiance yet.  I wonder if it will be necessary to play the game to get the most of the the show, or if the show is just going to end up being a big advertisement for the game.  I'm hopeful for it, but there is so much that could go wrong.


Funny thing about SGU. I stopped watching near the end and then they cancelled it and since TV seems to be allergic to reruns nowadays (except in the case of terrible filler like "Swamp People"), I never got to see them. And then I stopped caring.

I think Defiance will be a piece of crap. I hope not, but that's where it's likely going. Sci-fi is being watered down a lot for mass appeal, because apparently only people who still have imaginations watch stuff like the various Star Treks (not counting the new one, which was a space-action-movie and didn't have anything at all to say about the human condition and thus does not count, and also had a brewery for engineering because fark you that's why).

Society isn't necessarily getting dumber, but our ability to think outside the box seems to be reduced.
