Tube Bits For 01/02/2008

  • All you Galactica fans can rest easy now. Universal has announced a release date for the Season 3 DVDs. They will be available on March 25th, 2008. And the even better news is that all the episodes will be included. No more goody split seasons like Season 2. The start of the final season looks to have been pushed back to March as well, so if you’re hoping to catch up, well, you won’t be able to do it via the DVDs.
  • Like Stargate SG-1? Like to play MMORPGs? Then this contest may be for you. Beginning with this season of Stargate Atlantis, Sci Fi will be air a ‘gate code’ which, when entered at the contest’s web site will give you another entry to win. The winner will receive their likeness place somewhere within the Stargate Worlds MMO game, which will release this fall.
  • Film.com lists their Worst Sci Fi TV of 2007. Basically, it’s an anti-Sci Fi channel rant, and takes them to task for ECW and the ‘reality’ shows. Although I think they might have gone off the rails a bit with Tin Man, as I found that to be quite watchable, especially with the spousal overunit. Flash Gordon, not so watchable, so we agree there. We also disagree on how ‘good’ Bionic Woman was. Me: not so good.
  • TVJab lists their Best and Worst of 2007. As far as the genre show go, I have to agree. I do think that Zach Levi of Chuck has done a fine job as the lovable nerd at the Buy More and I think Pushing Daisies and Chuck are the two best of the new genre shows.
  • TVJab also lists their 5 Worst Sci Fi TV Series of all Time and wow, there are some terrible shows there. If you thought Automan was bad, just watch some of these. I do remember seeing The Man From Atlantis when it first aired though. What can I say? I was young and stupid.

  1. “No more goody split seasons like Season 2.”

    I’d call it a goofy split, myself. It was purely to get them more bucks, for a product that was showing some cracks. If Season 3 had been split, it would have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. I wouldn’t have bothered picking it up.

  2. Phoenix – I never caught it when it was on. But now I must check it out. It looks awesomely bad.
