  • It’s Emmy time and genre shows received some love from voters. Heroes received 8 nominations, LOST received 6, Galactica received 4 and even Eureka got one. We’ll see how far the love goes when it comes to actually win something….
  • As stated in the commend here, Dresden fans are campaigning to save (not shave) the show. So far, Sci Fi has said nothing, a sort of pocket cancellation as it were.

    Sci-Fi changed too many of the elements that make the books fun. Then they decided to film the episodes in one order and then run them in a another different order.

    The Sci-Fi channel needs someone who is actually a sci-fi fan to run the network.:D
