Is Kaylee A Good Role Model?

Kaywinnit Lee Frye, a.k.a. Kaylee. Beloved mechanic for the ship Serenity. Mal’s girl Friday with an attitude. I think we all love Kaylee in our own way — but is she a good role model? One definition of the term is “a person whose behavior in a particular role is imitated by others.” Do parents want their daughters to […]

Virtuality: The Next Best Show You May Not See

If you happened to miss Virtuality‘s premiere on FOX, it wouldn’t surprise me. If not for the GWC hivemind, I would have. In my opinion, it wasn’t promoted very well. Far be it for me to question the marketing decisions of a highly successful network — but they dropped the ball. Created by Ronald D. […]

I Mostly Understand the Reason for Renaming Syfy

Renaming the SCI FI channel to Syfy is proof positive that the management of the network are a bunch of booger-picking morons who wouldn’t know a phaser from a frisbee. …at least, that is what I thought until about five minutes ago.

You know it’s gonna be a good day when you find out the truly awesome Michael Hogan is joining Dollhouse along with Jamie Bamber and Tahmoh Penikett. (Now, if they can just get Tory and Sharon… my diabolical plan will be complete… Mwah-hahahahah). But on to that which is the trailerness…

Free TV: Dead Like Me

Dead Like Me stars a girl named George — yes, you read that right — who’s a bitter slacker not really engaged in life. Within the first ten minutes of the pilot George gets killed by a meteoric space toilet. Mandy Patinkin (Princess Bride, True Colors, Law & Order) shows up and tells her about […]

Who’s Our Next Science Hero?

A recent post on Slashdot asked: Where will we find the next “science hero?” The author implied that ever since Carl Sagan finished Cosmos, no one’s stepped up to bring science to the public as effectively. Thankfully, I’m not sure that’s true! But read on for my top four Carl Sagan replacement contenders — plus […]

Come Frak Babylon 5 With Us!

Think sci-fi on TV means just Star Trek? Don’t forget Babylon 5! To me, Babylon 5 shows the real potential of television: long running stories with vast complexities over many seasons. Writer/director J. Michael Straczynski paved the way for shows like Lost, Heroes, Firefly, and our beloved Battlestar Galactica. Sure, the effects haven’t held up […]

Interest Your Younglings In Sci-Fi

You’re relaxing during your time off and an image of the opening credits of Star Wars: A New Hope scrolls through your mind. Or maybe it’s an image of ET’s glowing finger, the sound of Inigo Montoya saying “My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die,” or an image of the […]

Warehouse 13 Premiere

Warehouse 13 premieres tonight and I’m kind’ve stoked about it. Every time I see it I’m absolutely positive somebody had the same thought many of us had when watching Indiana Jones when we were a kid; “What the hell is in all those other crates and what do they do with them?” Now – we’ll […]
