Sci-Fi Storm will be on vacation for a few days, returning later next week…Update: I’m back, I’m tired, and I’m trying to get caught up…no one submitted anything, so it’s all on me…
I know its not science fiction, but science fact is what helps drive the fiction. Recently the Discovery Channel aired a 6 hour series called When We Left The Earth – The NASA Missions, and now it is available on both DVD and Blu-Ray, and I’ve managed to take a look at the DVD version. Read More for a review, and you can even watch a clip here (Quicktime only).
Stories of Kim Stanley Robinson’s Red Mars getting some sort of screen treatment have been around as long as this web site, but they’ve been quiet for a while, last rumored to be a SFC miniseries. Now, AMC is developing a series based on the novel, with Jonathan Hensleigh (Armageddon) as writer/executive producer. No mention on if or how the other novels (Green Mars and Blue Mars) might be incorporated.
Kate Zuparko writes “Atom be airing a special STAR WARS FAN MOVIE CHALLENGE episode of Atom TV, their weekly TV show on COMEDY CENTRAL, this upcoming MONDAY, OCT. 6 at 2 am! Fans of Star Wars will get the chance to see all their favorite fan films on the airwaves, including George Lucas himself introducing the 2008 Selects winner, the Juno spoof PADME. Other favorites include this year’s Best Comedy Winner TARKIN N FRIENDS, the ever-popular CHAD VADER, and a montage of the best SW clips Atom has to offer, including favorite PINK FIVE.
The episode will premiere Monday night/Tuesday AM (depending on your sleep patterns!) on Comedy Central, so make sure to set your DVR (or stock up on caffeine-laced drinks!), but if you can?t watch it the first time, Comedy Central will be replaying the episode throughout the week:
– Wednesday, 10/8 at 12:30pm
– Thursday, 10/9 at 2am
– Sunday, 10/12 at 10am (yes, daylight hours!)
So there are plenty of chances to catch it if you can?t make it up that late this Monday!”
