Just came across 10 Items or Less (TBS) and an episode called ‘Star Trok’.  Funny stuff.

Basically the store (G&G) decides to have a Star Trek convention, but they can’t call it Trek (legal reasons) so they call it Trok.

Somehow they get Jolene Blalock (T’pol from Enterprise) to show up, but first she gets stuck in the freezer for a bit ..and well just go to TBS and watch the whole thing for free. It’s good fun and Jolene is great.

So ZFT is run by William Bell? RLY??

That was the big revelation in last night’s episode Midnight
, but another fine freak’ish scientific mix too.

The only cure for the vampire is spinal fluid..that’s one that i hadn’t heard off before.

Clearly this show is headed toward one massive season finale.

Klingons cut from Star Trek XI! jatlhwI’pu’ !! April 28, 2009

J J Abrams is so keen on having his vision of Star Trek – 90210’ish that he’s cut Klingon from the movie.

Yup that’s right. A classic era trek film where there is no spoken Klingon.

It’s total FRAKKIN BS.

“We actually had a sequence that ended up getting cut from the movie that took place on Rura Penthe, in a Klingon prison,” co-writer Alex Kurtzman told SCI FI Wire, explaining the deletion. “And there was definitely Klingon spoken in the movie, and it ended up getting cut.”

So while this new movie might look slick, by cutting out the Klingon this new film is cutting out the Warrior heart of the Star Trek Universe.

If they end up making Star Trek XII let’s sure hope it’s a full on Klingon Federation war!

Chuck : I know Kung-Fu? Chuck goes to the Matrix April 27, 2009

Umm so now Chuck is the Neo?

What the frak was that? What a horrible BS way to end the season — and maybe the series.

So now instead of being just the intersect..they can download new skills into Chuck as he needs them.

The wedding on the beach was a nice ending — should have been a nice ending – to this show…

If Chuck comes back it’ll be very different..now he’ll be learning new skills on demand instead of just flashing.

Dollhouse : Haunted or how Dolls can let people experience life after death! April 25, 2009

So  now Dolls can be used to let people come back after they’re dead? That’s what happened in last night’s episode Haunted

What a concept! Just scan a person regularly and they there will be a ‘copy’ of them ready to implant into another body.

Overall a really interesting episode, I didn’t pick the son as the killer and we really didn’t know till the last 10 minutes. That’s a sign of a brilliant writer ..with a story that keeps us entertained and guessing.

What was the deal with Topher though? Is he frakking Sierra too?

What about Agent Ballard? He knows Milly is a doll yet he can’t do much about it or can he?

Fringe : Olivia’s Bad Dream : Walter is a liar! April 22, 2009

Last night’s episode Bad Dreams was another great piece of the pattern puzzle.

So we know that Olivia (or should we call her Olive?) was experimented on as a child..now we know it was Walter and Leonard Nimoy who were directly involved!

Amazing how everything comes back to Walter in this show? It’s actually a little annoying at this point.

How can the whole be pattern be about Walter?

Then again Walter is a whack job…and a character that we all love.

Great to hear the voice of Leonard Nimoy in this episode too...soon enough we’ll see him as William Bell founder of massive dynamics

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe – revisited and reviewed April 22, 2009

On a whim (it was sitting on the library shelf) I picked up Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.  I read Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy years ago, but admittedly never got around to reading more in the series.

restaurantBoy have I been missing out.

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe (milliways) is fun and made for a great read. Adams has a weird/silly writing style that to be honest works really well as before bed reading. The chapters are short the scenes brief and without clutter, but still funny and entertaining.

So many fine scenes in this book I don’t know that i can pick one as a favorite…well maybe when the food comes out at Milliway and suggests which part of itself is best to eat.

caprica
Caprica, the Battlestar Galactica prequel is out today!
Sci Fi channel has ordered 20 hours of the Battlestar Galactica prequel but it all starts with this pilot available first on a direct to DVD.

After the tremendous dissapointment of the final Battlestar Galactica episode, Caprica represents another opportunity for us the fans to get back into the BSG universe before the FRAKKERS decided to fly their ships into the sun, become farmers and oh yeah Kara Thrace is an angel.

Here we get to see the colonies before the blasphemy of the final episode…a chance to start fresh and see things in a different light.

We’re excited for Caprica, we hope it’s as good as the Battlestar Galactica mini-series was – we’ll see…

Superman World of New Krypton #2 Class Warfare April 20, 2009

Commander El – AKA Superman has a very different role on New Krypton than on Earth.

Now he’s in command of his own troops, trying to teach them how to use their powers…

But what about the whole caste system of Krypton? That’s what this issue is all about as the labor caste stage a rebellion…lots of action of one issue..

Somehow i suspect that the this will not be resolved easily and what this series will be about is a New Krypton civil war of sorts.

One thing is for sure after two issues this series is already shaping up to be one of the best Superman story lines of the last 50 years.

Sarah Connor Chronicles TERMINATED April 14, 2009

That’s the buzz…the show that started off so brilliantly but in season two has been mostly pure garbage is headed to the trash heap of scifi history.

We’re not surprised – no one should be. Sure some people liked the show this season but the ratings sucked.

We did like the last few episodes, the death of Riley, Derek Reese and the finale with John going back to the future...but it was a case of too little too late.

The show for the most part was — let’s be honest here – boring.

Episodes were poorly acted and produced with long periods of brooding nothingness. That’s not entertainment that’s just lazy writing.

The show had great potential and we were very keen on it in the beginning. Cameron is an interesting Terminator and she had so much potential that was largely unexplored. Derek Reese another fine character…

No this wasn’t Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor,and that was a major flaw from day one.

That and oh yeah – The FRAKKIN writers let us down.

Luckily for Terminator fans the glory days of Terminator are soon here. Terminator 4 : Terminator Salvation might be the best Terminator yet as we finally get to see the true John Connor hero of the resistance at long last.

As for the unfinished storyline of Sarah Connor Chronicles…well i suppose there is always the direct to DVD route and if that fails, hey books would work here too.

Doctor Who : Michelle Ryan AWESOME in Planet of the Dead April 13, 2009

The Doctor Who Easter special Planet of the Dead was on over the weekend – with Michelle Ryan (bionic woman, east enders) as the female lead.

The basic story was a cliche, Doctor gets stuck on a planet and he needs to stop the flying alien metal eating things before they come to earth story.

Michelle Ryan however was a sleek addition to the cliche , playing an art thief – turned wanna be Doctor Who companion…she even kisses the Doctor.

In the end though he doesn’t accept her as a companion, but hey we’ll see if that changes in the future….

Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles : Season 2 Finale, Series Finale? John Connor makes it to the future April 10, 2009

Let’s hope this was the final episode for Sarah Connor Chronicles.

John Connor finally makes it into the future…but a new future where his isn’t the hero…a future where Cameron is just a girl, and Kyle and Derek Reese both still live.

Weaver is a new type of Terminator trying to stop SkyNet and help save humanity with John Henry..

Yeaaah it’s all a little bit of a stretch…but this is the kinda of solid action that made this show attractive in the first place. If this is the final episode because FOX cancels the show..at least this show will have gone out with a bang.

Tonight’s episode – wow…so much activity…

Let’s start at the top. Mr Dominic is NSA, and now in the attic…we knew something was wrong with that dude…so ok.

Victor banging DeWitt..that was a total surprise.

Mellie telling Agent Ballard she is a doll? WOWOW another total shock.

All told so many twist and turns in one episode..and an episode that had a puzzle of a timeline, back and forth and sideways.

Last night’s episode of Fringe, titled the Inner Childwas pretty freaky..
oh and great to have the show back after its two month hiatus too.

So who was the boy? Is he a ‘little watcher’? Guess we’ll find out..but clearly he’s part of the pattern.

And Walter…oh Walter in fine form. He had so many good lines in this episode ..perhaps the funniest…
I’m sure agent Dunham has seen a penis before.

Chuck’s Dad is Orion? oh and Scott Bakula too April 6, 2009

chuckWow what an awesome turn of events on Chuck.

First we find out his dad is none other than Scot Bakula ..then we find out he’s FREAKIN ORION..the Dude that created the intersect in the first place.

we did not see that coming..not by a long shot. So now the whole premise of the series comes full circle.

Was it an accident that Chuck is the intersect? somehow i don’t think so.

This newest trailer ‘beginning’ is all about Kirk and really tries to show him as the tough guy that Shatner always made him out to be…
