Have you â%u20AC%u0153LOSTâ%u20AC interest? (Article) - 11/6/2006 7:31:25 AM

Scifi didn't actually make Black Scorpion. Both Black Scorpion and The Secret Adventures Of Jules Verne were made by their production companies on spec and sat around for a while, looking for an outlet. Scifi bought the rights to air both shows. Actually, while Black Scorpion was BAD, it was kind of entertaining in it's own way. Tremmors the Series had it's moments too. You just couldn't take either show very seriously. BSG continues to get better and better. Lost still holds my interest very nicely. I don't want all the questions answered too quickly. What fun would that be? KaraS

"The Buffy Files: Chapter 4" (Article) - 11/4/2006 7:16:53 AM

Now, I liked season 4. It had some great episodes, particurlarly Hush, Superstar and A New Man wherin Giles gets turned into a demon. Heh heh heh. Though I agree that the sudden addition of secret government conspiricies to the Buffy lore was jarring. Still, I disagree that season 4 was lower in quality to the earlier seasons. It was just going in a different direction. KaraS

"The Buffy Files: Chapter 2" (Article) - 10/19/2006 7:09:28 AM

It wasn't that when Buffy died at the end of season 1 The Watchers Council chose Kendra to be the new slayer. When a slayer dies some kind of magic happens that choses the next slayer out of a pool of potential slayers available. Why Kendra became the new slayer and not one of the other available candidates is something nobody understands. Kendra isn't an important character in and of herself, she is more important for what she represents. Unlike Buffy, she was identified as a potential slayer by the Council as a baby and she was trained by a Watcher all of her life to fulfil those duties and do nothing else. She has no family, doesn't go to school, has no social life. As much as Buffy whines about how being a slayer cramps her style, she has so much more in her life than Kendra does. And her ties with family and friends make her a better slayer than Kendra ever could have been. Next season we will meet Faith, the slayer called when Kendra died, a wild and undersupervised young woman. We'll see how the power of being a slayer can corrupt.

Frank Darabont to direct Stephen King's THE MIST (Article) - 10/19/2006 6:44:50 AM

I read The Mist in college. It gave me nightmares for 2 nights running and I think it's still the scariest thing I've ever read. It wasn't so much about the monsters, you barely saw those. It was more about how the people trapped in the supermarket reacted and banded together and chose certain people as scapegoats. The people were much scarier than the monsters... This could be a great film, but only if it concentrates on the reactions of the people. If it becomes about the monsters it will be interchangable with any other monster flick.

You Can't Please Everyone... (Article) - 10/16/2006 7:44:24 AM

I watch NCIS. And since it stars Michael Weatherly, a vet of genre show Dark Angel, it merits inclusion. I agree that there is no need to cover reality TV (though I, too, watch The Amazing Race) or sitcoms. Hour long dramas, movies and documentaries/specials of interest are good though. And you should be including Dead Like Me and Threshold from the Scifi Channel. Yeah, they are reruns, but many people may not have seen them before (I never had Showtime to watch Dead Like Me) and might be interested. Oh, and what happened to Numb3rs?

COMICS, SEXUALITY, AND THE PUBLIC LIBRARY (Article) - 10/14/2006 11:27:55 AM

What was Louise Mills doing reading graphic novels anyway? I've never met the woman or heard of her before but from what I've read here she doesn't sound like the usual graphic audience. It sounds like if the books had been text only she wouldn't have objected to their content. It's distressing that so many people have to mind everybody else's business. I read Elfquest as a child and if the sexual content in these books was similar I don't see how anybody could object to it.

The Buffy Files: Chapter 1 (Article) - 10/14/2006 10:20:07 AM

I kind of liked Dawn, and I liked the idea of retroactively adding a character like that. But I didn't care for Glory or the whole key storyline.

SG-1 heading to the movies? (Article) - 10/14/2006 10:05:18 AM

Watch out for those sour grapes. They make the cheese taste funny and can ruin your taste buds.

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: Season Premiere (Article) - 10/14/2006 9:50:18 AM

Well, the new BSG has included several black female characters, though more as supporting players than main characters. And the new Boomer introduces Asian characters to the series for the first time. I like the show but I still resent them giving the characters a sex change. And they didn't use ANY of the perfectly servicable female characters from the original series.

The Buffy Files: Chapter 1 (Article) - 10/13/2006 6:45:24 AM

I don't understand why your friends told you that season 1 was weak. I found that it had many good episodes (my favorites being the one where Xander was posessed by a hyena spirit and the one where everybody's worst fears come to life). Of course, every series is entitled to one or two sub par episodes a season and if you didn't like I Robot, You Jane, well, it wasn't my favorite either. But it did introduce the Jenny Calendar character and she will be important. Count on it. All in all, I liked season 1 much better than season 7 which was dark and kind of unpleasant and perhaps too serialized. But if you're a Firefly fan, you will see some familliar faces in the last seasons of both Buffy and Angel.
