Usually you’ll find us criticizing the SciFi Channel for it’s continual use of cheesy monster movies and hit or miss (mostly) series to fill out it’s ‘SF’ moniker. So, when there is some interesting SF stuff coming up, I think it’s only fair to remind people of that. There are a few interesting things on the docket in the near future that I think people might find interesting.
First up, tonight, Sci Fi is running a special on the Xbox 360 game, Mass Effect, which releases today. It airs tonight at 11pm ET. I’ve seen elsewhere that a similar venture covering Halo 3 was actually pretty good. Mass Effect has been getting great reviews, so this might actually be worth a view. SF and gaming, nice.
Next up, perhaps you may have heard of a little show called Battlestar Galactica? So I’m sure you’re all waiting for Razor which airs Nov. 24th at 9/8C. While not quite up to the tautness of the first season, it’s still better than the last season. I’ll have a full review up later, for now, if you are a fan, you’ll like Razor.
Lastly, Sci Fi’s re-imagining of The Wizard of Oz, called Tin Man, airs on Dec 2nd, also at 9/8C. I’m really up in the air about this one. On the one hand, the previews look pretty cool. On the other hand, it’s made by the same team that brought us the new Flash Gordon. I’ll most likely be watching. Does anyone else have any thoughts?
