Simon and Garfunkel Sing “The Sound of Cylons”

“Hello Gaius, my old friend…”

Who knew Simon an Garfunkel did filk! That’s what one might think if they listened to this nearly spot-on parody of “The Sounds of Silence”.

It is widely agreed that shows like Lost and Battlestar Galactica ended on a low note. I’ve also heard more than one person say the same for Quantum Leap. Although these shows were good overall, they shared endings that kinda sucked.

Which begs the question: Which SciFi shows had the best endings?

What’s you take? Sound off in the comments…


I have really embraced Netflix and streaming video. Enough so that I made a post about 5 genre shows now streaming from the service just a couple days ago. Looking through the available content, though, I realized there were a lot more shows deserving of a mention.  So, here’s a list of five more shows!  (presented in no particular order)

Tube Bits for 07/14/2009

  • Entertainment Earth has these really cool Battlestar Galactica figurines on sale. You can see Little Frakkin’ Colonials Starbuck over there on the right. There’s also a Little Frakkin’ Toasters Cylon Centurion available. Really cool! [via Fanboy.com]
  • Of course, if you’re buying one (or both) of those figurines above, it’s a good bet you don’t believe the series finale of Galactica is the worst ending in the history of onscreen SF like Brad from Brad Ideas does. He certainly has thought a lot about it and makes some good points. I’m not sure it’s as bad as he thinks, but now he’s making think about how other series ended, badly or not. Hmm.
  • Discover Magazine takes a look at the science behind Virtuality‘s Orion drive. A very interesting read I must say. When do we start on the matter/anti-matter containment fields?
  • If you’re going to Comic Con 2009 and you’re a fan of TheWB, you can find a listing of events that network is scheduled to offer here. The Wonder Woman panel sounds interesting…
  • From the “It’s not SF but it’s still worth a watch” department: TNT’s Leverage returns for it’s second season this Wednesday night. Despite being totally unbelievable, it’s still a great fun to watch caper show, due in no small part to the terrific characters and interactions between them. Definitely a thumbs up from me, and from my Dad of all people.
