I caught the premier of the new Flash Gordon on the SciFi Channel Friday night. And wasted a good hour of my life. They cancelled the Dresden Files and put their hope in this show? I think something is seriously wrong with these people. They wouldn’t know a good show if it slapped them in the face.
Not only was Flash Gordon as corny as a B movie, but the special effects look like they came out of someone’s basement. The dialog and writing was laughable, and not in a good way. Basically, Doctor Who (for the bizarreness) threw up on Flash Gordon. Every cheesy science fiction element is here.
Way to give science fiction a bad name, SciFi Channel!
This December, the SciFi Channel will be airing the Tin Man miniseries, a darker take on L. Frank Baum’s classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. To promote the upcoming show, SciFi is releasing a digital comicbook with backstory on the characters.
If you’ve been interested in checking out Kyle XY but don’t want to jump into the 2nd season, you can catch up now for free on the ABC Family website! Just go to ABCFamily.com/watch and click on one of the several shows or “Get Started.”
And be sure to tune in to ABC Family this weekend for Fallen. Episode 1 airs on Friday night, 1 & 2 air on Saturday, and all episodes air on Sunday.
Thanks to SFSignal for the reminder and the video.
Just received info on the upcoming release of Heroes Season 1 DVD set:
I thought you might be interested in a quick update on the Heroes Season 1 DVD set, thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be released on August 28. Here are the highlights of whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s on the discs (Aside, of course, from 23 episodes of Heroes):
-Unaired Pilot: The Tim Kring Cut with Audio Commentary Ã¢â‚¬â€œ A full 73 uninterrupted minutes of the original, unaired, extended pilot episode, as HeroesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ creator Tim Kring first envisioned it, with a character never seen.
-The Making of Heroes Ã¢â‚¬â€œ From concept to pop culture phenomenon, a behind-the-scenes look at the hottest new series on television.
In Monday night’s episode, Kyle has embraced his gifts and finally sets about using them to help people. Namely his love interest, Amanda. This is his first real “case.” And he not only helps out the victim by sacrificing something valuable to him, but he actually helps out a thief as well. Kyle is truly every bit the boy scout that Clark Kent is. I just hope they don’t go the same route with the relationship with Amanda as they do with Lana in Smallville. The “will they, won’t they” thing gets old really fast. Especially, when in Smallville, you know they don’t end up together.
