This last friday, the long awaited new Stargate series of Stargate: Universe premiered on the SyFy network (still trying to figure out why this isn’t SciFi network anymore but I digress). I have been looking forward to SGU for a very long time, really I’ve been looking forward to a follow-up of SG1 since about the seventh season of SG1.
If you haven’t been following the sci-fi television series Dollhouse by Joss Whedon, I would suggest that you give episode 5 a shot. The show really has been starting to come into its own and I hear episode 6 is going to be the best one of the season to date. Eliza Dushku still is a liability more than an asset to the show but it is still worth watching and even following.
Like many others, I have been really excited over Joss Whedan’s newest television show Dollhouse. After Firefly it is hard not to be hugely excited as that show as just so good. So last night, I happily sat down and watched the new show in hopes that it would be able to fulfill some of the scifi goodness that I so desire later in the week.
I am more than a little annoyed by this Digital Television switch. For some reason, I doubt that I am alone. You see, I like millions of Americans have decided to bow out of the monopoly that cable television brings to the table and have decided that my money is best spent on other things and thus I watch TV over the antenna, like my forefathers did. And while politicians and businessmen who all seem to benefit from the switch go on and on about how it doesn’t even affect most Americans, it does affect me.
There has been much talk around the net about how the third season fell into many of the same traps that the second season had. That it really wasn’t much better than the second season. I’m not entirely sure of this. I would grant anyone that the third season was not nearly as good as the first season, but it also wasn’t nearly as bad as the second season. Heroes may not be doin what it did in that magical first year on NBC, but it still has some magic left in it.
I recently got NetFlix again due to my cancelation of Cable TV. And for a mini-update of that, I am quite happy with the change given that the new TV season is on keeping me busy there anyway and I save about $30 a month from what I was paying. Now I’m not going to do a review on Netflix, that’d be silly. Everyone knows what the service is and how good it is. What I want to concentrate on instead is some of the newer things that Netflix has added and what this service COULD be going forward Read more “The Future of Netflix”
It has been two weeks, three episodes kind of, since the launch of the new season of Heroes. I thought I would take time to delve into this latest season and whether or not this season can make a return to its first season roots, or whether it will instead mirror the dullness of season 2. Warning to any potential readers out there, this may contain spoilers.
