I'd rather re-watch some of the better series than watch crappy sci-fi ... although there are limits -- and I think I've finally now finished with Star Trek TNG after who-knows-how-many re-watches.

I never finished Farscape ... I literally watched it up until the last 4-5 episodes and got bored and never went back to finish it (or the movie that follows it). I did the same thing with Andromeda.

Loved Firefly though for sure. Quirky and fun. I think it could have grown into something pretty great given the chance.

Interesting... by that far in, you should have been hooked Interestingly, today I just happened to rewatch the two-hour "Peacekeeper Wars" finale to the season - pretty darn good, certainly among the top episodes of the series.

Andromeda had cheese factor nine, man... but it also had Rommie. Heck, even Trance (the orange version, not the blue) was eye candy that made it worth watching.

Yep you'd think with that amount of time put into it I would have had a better commitment to seeing how it all ended up but honestly at that point for me it had just gotten boring.

Eye candy is important in sci-fi! Rommie and Trance (either colour) worked for me So did Claudia Black in Farscape. At least Andromeda was primarily canadian actors ... in fact most of the recent good sci-fi was all shot in Canada too with lots of Canadian talent.

Aaron Sims’ Sci-Fi Short Archetype is So Good They’re Making a Movie Version



Quote:
Aaron Sims’ sci-fi short film “Archetype” is apparently so good, Hollywood took notice and now “Chronicle” producer John Davis will be blowing it up into a full-length feature film, with Sims directing.
Quote:
RL7 is an eight-foot tall combat robot that goes on the run after malfunctioning with vivid memories of once being human. As its creators and the military close in, RL7 battles its way to uncovering the shocking truth behind its mysterious visions and past.

Heh - cosmic timing, i-rui. I just now watched that "TED Talk". A bit too near-future, though. That stadium looks a wee bit grand to have been built by 2023...

Darnit. This show had major problems ('waaay too much Spielberg-influenced kiddie plots), but it was nice escapism. Too bad...

FOX Cancels Terra Nova, Producer Will Shop Show Elsewhere

Quote:
scratch another sci-fi show on network TV. To be perfectly honest with you, I kind of saw this one coming. “Terra Nova” was costing $4 million per episode, and apparently Fox didn’t think 10 million viewers per episode was worth that chunk of change. Thus — cancellation.

So what’s next for the Shannon clan? 20th Century Fox TV, who makes the show, plans on shopping the show to other networks. Good luck with that, chief. There is a couple of sci-fi shows on cable TV that immediately spring to mind (TNT’s “Falling Skies”, the Syfy Channel’s “Alphas”) and I’m reasonably certain neither one of those costs $4 million per episode.

Netflix has deeper pockets than I realized...

Netflix is Apparently Now Big Enough that they’re Considering Saving Terra Nova



Quote:
Scuttlebutt around Hollywood aways is that the online movie dispenser is in “discussions” with the show’s producers to continue the series online, which, if it actually happens would make Netflix quite the player in the TV game. After all, it’s not like “Terra Nova” is a cheap show to make. It’s mega $4 million-per price tag was one of the reasons Fox dropped it in the first place, after all.
