Catch the E-Ring Fever

This show reminds me of JAG, it has that look and feel of the real military, but there's too much hype. DAH, it's television. After last weeks episode, I looked through some of the online reviews....


"Invasion" Just Gets Better

For a second week, Invasion was great! For network television, this is a real accomplishment. Most scifi shows tend to fizzle out while in the mainstream, but make enormous comebacks in syndication, Firefly for example.....

Firefly Quenches Sci-fi Thirst

"Take my love, take my land, Take me where I cannot stand. I don't care, I'm still free. You can't take the sky from me. Take me out to the black, Tell them I ain't comin' back. Burn the land and boil the sea, You can't take the sky from me. There's no place I can be Since I found Serenity, But you can't take the sky from me..."

Battlestar Galactica Season Two Finale:"Pegasus" Reviewed

The season finale of BSG was AWESOME! ...... The Pegasus seems to have been hiding for the past 2 years, while the rest of the fleet had to endure the Cylon attacks, food and supply shortages, and watching people the live and work with be killed. The Pegasus crew is a different kind of military, one that is.....

ABC's "Invasion", Two Thumbs Up

The network posted a disclaimer upfront that depicted events were fictitious, since the main event was a hurricane hitting the Florida Keys. One could see how that might...

Battlestar Galactica Season Two: "Flight of the Phoenix" Reviewed

This episode focused on how much they have all sacrificed, and what they have left. All that, combined with the imminent inside threat of a Cylon virus eating away at their systems, some of the personnel feel the end is in sight and it's not pretty.

The Postman - Goofs?

"The Postman" is making the rounds on HBO, and as usual I watch it most every time it's on. Some things I noticed, that don't seem to fit in. I scoured the net looking for references to these, but came up empty. First, when he is a Fosters (the first time) dancing with Abby, the camera pans 360 degrees around them (and then some). One can clearly see school buses and U-Haul trucks parked neatly in the background. You can't see the ground below the vehicles, but they don't look as though they've been there too long, especially not abandoned for years and sitting through nuclear winters. Second, where are they getting the electricity for the lights? In the same scene as before, a fluorescent ceiling light can be seen. The lights and the vehicles don't seem to fit with the nature and circumstances of the story. Any comments?

The Terminal - Reviewed

The Storyline immediately draws us in as we discover Viktor (Tom Hanks) is stranded at an airport, in a foreign country. It's mirrors something we might see on the evening news, a civil war in a far away land - it's citizens displaced and homeless. The movie is definitely a different twist. To add insult to injury....

Off the Beaten Path - This is Extortion!

Everyone's talking about the price of gas. It's beyond crazy, it's beyond outrageous, it's EXTORTION. What I don't understand is if the US has a 30 day oil reserve, why does every little thing immediately affect the current price of gas?....
