Firefly is about people that captains of fansy, luxerious ships like USS Enterprise would ignore on their way to explore the "undiscovered country." Firefly isn't about boldly going where no man has gone before, it's about surviving and sometimes doing bad things to survive.

Boy, the end of the fourth Smallville, just aired on danish television. Fantastic. I just wish they would announce when they started a new season. I've actually never seen the most of the final part of season 2, and the beginning of season 3, and beginning of season 4.

A good Sci-Fi is about realistic human reactions to extream or extroidinary situations. Its about exploreing the possible futures (or presents) and the effects they will have on people.

Its a pitty Star Trek is seen a the generic sci-fi, because its a bad example.
It has the technological ideas, but nothing ever effects anyone in the series.
Nothing ever happens to the *charecters*.

Firefly, Farscape ect.
They couldnt be more different from Star Trek. Things actualy happen

I would like to announce that thus far I have seen all of the 88 Farscape Episodes!!

If you put them all together then you get a phenomenon that cannon be described in words. Using episodes to tell (in this case) an epic story is the PRIME ability of Television that has been greatly over looked. I've heard of a select few TV shows the utilize the media in this form (such as "24").

If only more shows could be like Farscape in that reguard, because that's really the way to go!

Many shows will have a different story each season, but Farscape (for the most part) is a giant on-going story stretching the entire series!

Watching the finale of Season 4 I realized just how "rushed" the ending of the series felt. Not even the Peacekeeper Wars does Farscape justice. For a show that tells the story in such a length, 4 hours (Season 4 Finale + 3 hours of the Mini-Series) is just not enough to end it.

Even at the end of PK Wars it felt like there should be more. Not because I want to show to go on, but because the story thus far is actually STILL incomplete!!!

Amongst many arguable things Farscape has:
The best over cliffhangers in Season Finales than any other series.
The most creative aliens and creatures than in any other TV show.

Too bad there aint any good tv shows as malcolm or simpsons here regularly and updated as it should be (except if you sign special TV services, then you get all that).

*sigh*

I liked Sliders, too. I tried watching it again (unsuccessfully, for the most part) sometimes when it used to come on the Sci Fi Channel after Roswell.

To this day i'm still upset that there was no proper ending for Sliders.




And I don't get why people watch Malcolm in the middle.

I finished Dead Like Me a couple of days ago. Too bad there's only these two seasons, there were still so many subplots to be worked out. Oh well. I enjoyed this all the way through, really great series.

I'm doing some catching up with Prison Break; there's a big gap between episode 7 and 8 so I'm trying to watch all current episodes before that (yeah, sometimes there gaps are pretty convenient .) Just today I watched the first three, it's quite addictive and everything goes at a nice fast pace, probably the fastest I've seen in a TV series so far (24 is wussy in comparision.) Prison escape stories are almost always a succesful concept and this one is no exception. The story adds some interesting new dimensions to the whole package, as the main character actually more or less designed the prison he's in. Overall it's not really deep, but very pleasant to watch.

Hmm and there's a new Lost due today no? It's nice to see there are some questions actually answered and not only new ones are created, 'the others' are getting shape. I'm curious to their motives.

Finally there's a big hype on The Sopranos going around recently in my group of friends again, so I was thinking of finally just starting off with this series. There's a big pile of 5 seasons waiting, so this is going to be a long term project .

wacks, read if you've already seen Lost episode 4:
Spoiler:
I don't think those were "the others". They were just the survivors from the back of the plane. The french chick talked about others who took her baby 'n stuff, they must have been there before them...


Oh and, Dead Like Me owned.

I heard that too. But then I heard that it was just a rumor, so I don't know for sure. I don't think he's out because it would kind of screw up where the story looks like it might be going.
