British Invaders podcast – “Quatermass, Part 1”

by on Oct.03, 2007, under Audio

I thought I’ve mentioned this podcast before, but apparently it was only in the comments in this thread. British Invaders is a podcast that discusses some of the classic British Science Fiction series, including Doctor Who and Star Cops. The latest episode discusses Quatermass, the 1950s series that had a few revivals, including the 2005 remake mentioned in the last article…

Illusion on-demand network goes live

by on Oct.03, 2007, under General News

The new on-demand science fiction network Illusion (first mentioned here) officially lit up today, carried at least on Verizon FiOS and possibly several other networks. Check out their official site for programming, and you can watch some of it online as well. I can see some classics like the original Doctor Who (starting in January 2008) and Day of the Triffids are there, along with newer fare like Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. Looks interesting, but I don’t have Verizon FiOS quite yet (invested in several hacked DirecTV TiVo units so I can watch programs on whatever TV I need to, and don’t have an HD TV yet to justify the change).

David Hewlett’s A Dog’s Breakfast on DVD

by on Oct.02, 2007, under General News

I hadn’t heard of this before, but now I have to get a copy. David Hewlett, best known as Dr. Rodney McKay on Stargate Atlantis, wrote and directed A Dog’s Breakfast, and included a number of his co-stars in it. It’s a comedy about the obsessive Patrick (Hewlett), who goes killer crazy when his sister (real life sister Kate Hewlett, who appeared in Atlantis as – shocking – his sister) introduces her fiance (Paul McGillion, Dr. Beckett on Atlantis), who is the star of a real cheesy SF show called The Starcrossed. It also features Rachel Lutrell (Stargate Atlantis) and Christopher Judge (Stargate SG-1).

Complete Next Generation DVD set tomorrow

by on Oct.01, 2007, under General News

For the Star Trek geek with (a LOT of) disposable income and haven’t bought any of the previous iterations of DVDs yet, Paramount releases the 49-disc Star Trek: The Next Generation – The Complete Series DVD set. All seven seasons in one box. Prefer the older, larger packaging? You can still get all 7 season sets in one package (currently $5 more), and check out the Sci-Fi TV Store if you just need to fill in some seasons…
