This is the last in our series looking at the upcoming genre shows on TV (see ABC, CBS, The CW and Fox and NBC). Today we’re focusing on the ABC Family Channel and the Sci Fi Channel, each with only one new show, so this will be short and sweet.
Premier: 08/03/2007 – 08/05/2007
They Say: “Jealous Lucifer waged war on Heaven – and lost. The Creator imprisoned him in Hades and exiled his disloyal followers. These Angels fell to Earth, where they corrupted humans and sired Nephilim. Enraged, the Creator rejected those offspring as abominations and sent fierce warrior angels called the Powers to purify the Earth.”
We Say: Fallen is based on the books by Thomas E. Sniegowski and actually looks rather interesting. If you’re interested at all, all three installments will be show this weekend (Fri. – Sun.) on ABC Family. I’ve heard others say the first installment was pretty good so I’ll probably record that see how good it is.
They Say: “Placing a 21st century spin on a science fiction classic, SCI FI’s contemporized version of Flash Gordon follows the all-new adventures of Flash and his companions, Dale Arden and Dr. Hans Zarkov. Ordinary people thrust into extraordinary circumstances, they find themselves as Earth’s last line of defense against the forces of the merciless dictator Ming.”
We Say: Could be good, could be cheesy. Could be good and cheesy. If it’s silly fun like Eureka, I’ll be watching a lot. Let’s hope Sci Fi has created another decent SF TV show as most of the new genre shows aren’t SF at all.
