Tube Bits For 08/22/07

  • Last season’s Who Wants To Be A Superhero? winner, Feedback, will make his movie debut this Saturday on Sci Fi. This isn’t a Feedback movie, rather the actor, Matthew Atherton will be starring in the Sci Fi movie, Mega Snake, which is pretty much all you need to know to decide whether to watch or not. I’d choose not.
  • Sci Fi Weekly has an interview with Amanda Tapping, Michael Shanks and Christopher Judge on 10 years of Stargate SG-1. SG-1 fans ought to find something interesting here. [Via Slice Of Sci Fi]
  • Paul Bagosy details his threshold of suspension of disbelief, and uses an episode of Eureka to do so. In my mind, he chose a weaker episode, but Eureka isn’t really about the science, its about the characters. I can deal with the technobabble because I like the people in the show.
  • Now all you SF fans in Japan will have your very own science fiction channel. Pray that they don’t make ‘original’ movies like Sci Fi. There’s no telling the horrors of low budget rubber monster movies waiting to be unleashed on an unsuspecting Japan.
  • Battlestar Galactica will live on after its series finale, but in the form of a six issue comic series. The comic will fill details leading up to the Cylon attack.

  1. Ah, the Suck Fi Channel. Those poor Japanese. If it weren’t for “Battlestar Galactica” and “Doctor Who,” would there be a point to the Sci Fi Channel? They show so much horror; don’t they know horror is not sci-fi? I’ll take “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century” reruns over 9/10 of what they show now. And why not show old sci-fi shows and make the channel a bona fide home of sci-fi and fantasy? Oh well. I guess we’re lucky to have an outlet that gives us BG and DW. But they’re not even showing the DW spin-off “Torchwood.” Come on!

  2. I think if you saw any of Torchwood, you would be very thankful that it wasn’t being shown here. It seems to me like it would fit the Sci-Fi channel lineup all too well.

  3. 137% agreement here, Bill!

    When is the Slime-Fi Channel going to give us “Mansquito: The Next Hatching”? And how about “Mega-Sloth”?

  4. BSG as a comic? Details leading up to the Cylon attack? So does this mean that “Caprica” is dead as a series?
