(In)Complete Guides

Slice of SciFi points us to a website called Roll Call subtitled an “(In)Complete Guide to every Science-Fiction Character who was ever killed”. The emphasis here is on the (In). Many popular characters are missing yet, strangely, many characters from V are present.

More interesting, I thought, was the sister site Never Forget subtitled the “(In)Complete Guide to every Science-Fiction Television Series screwed over by Hollywood.” An ominous omission is Firefly (an SF Signal fave) and a suspicious inclusion is Galactica 1980. But! I did learn that Allan Cole and Chris Bunch (authors of the Sten series of books) wrote for Galactica 1980, which is confusing because Sten was good and Galactica 1980 sucked. This news gave me the same WTF? feeling I got after learning that Theodore Sturgeon and David Gerrold wrote for Land of the Lost.

Another interesting page by the same webmasters is Ways I’d improve the Sci-Fi Channel. I think we can all relate.
