Watched Outcasts, because of you all. Got to be very good. Beginning was pretty bad. Now we will never find out what happens when the other ship lands.

DVD region codes

NTSC/PAL/SECAM is an whole other can of worms.

Blu-ray region codes

Fortunately, HDTVs worldwide seem to have similar display standards.

Yes, wouldn't it be nice for bonus features on a canceled series if the producers/director/writer or someone would talk a bit about where they were heading with the series, perhaps tell about the first story arc, and what they had planned down the road with the series?

With DA if you wiki it, it tells you what the writers had planned for the story. A great series cut too short.

Really enjoying Falling Skies. Love the way the Aliens look and move.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 22, 2012, 7:06:19 PM PDT
And there's these:

Skin Game (Dark Angel)
Before the Dawn (Dark Angel)
After the Dark (Dark Angel, Book 3)

Falling Skies again tonight. Be there.

I watched about 4 episodes of Falling Skies in the 1st season and gave up. I can't name the book series it seems to be based on, but the adaptation to TV stinks.

I never see mention of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Some episodes were a bit tedious, but overall I think it was one of the better SF TV series (and would love to see it in syndication). And no, I am not discounting the Star Gate series. The original was best, but they were all OK.

Somewhere, I seem to have missed the Outcasts. I like Lost Girl. If you want some fantasy, try Once Upon A Time. Imaginative, but (like most major network series) taking W A Y T O O L O N G to get the the real payoff. The Brits have the right idea with a show going 2-4 seasons and ending.

Never liked Deep Space 9 but not much else to watch when it was shown.

I like the way the Brits do it too. They make a story and it goes a few episodes and EACH episode actually furthers the story.

Anyone remember the original Prisoner with PatrickMcGoohan? Great show and still my personal favorite.

Prisoner was an outstanding series. At the end of each episode he still was imprisoned. That would be an excellent series to show on Syfy.

Someone (don't recall who) tried to redo this show 2-3 yrs ago. It wasn't that bad, but I don't remember it making it to a 2nd season.

Patrick McGoohan was perfect in the role. I think the guy passed away if I am not mistaken. I haven't seen the series in years and I wonder if it is available.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 29, 2012, 9:53:56 PM PDT
Its not based off a book series.... I think you are thinking about something else.

These days its rare (for me anyway) to find something fresh and original.

Have you watched Babylon 5?

Posted on Jun 30, 2012, 8:11:02 AM PDT
Babylon was good. Fun.
Saw Survivors. Interesting enough to watch, but am I the only one who finds Abby, annoying?

If you want fresh and original real Neal Asher because his SF is quite good. Start with the Skinner, finish the series and get into the Polity series. You will enjoy it. Better than Reynolds and most writers out there today.

Any sci-fi books/series/movies dealing a little with politics?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 1, 2012, 1:21:51 PM PDT

Battlestar Galactica 2004-2009.

Other than that?

I just bought a Neal Asher short story collection at a discount store for $1.25. It's finally at the top of my reading queue. Your recommendation makes me look forward to getting started. Thanks!

Not sure if it's technically sci-fi, but 'Jericho' is a great series & the whole thing is on Netflix. We found it last year and watched the entire series in a few weeks.

Loved Jericho. Sure, it's post apocalyptic about a possible future so I would call it scifi.

Pick up the Skinner and read the many comments on it. Then go to his polity series. The Polity series goes in order so you need to read the beginning ones to understand the world of Polity. The guys imagination is without equal and one of the best new sci fi authors in decades. Humanity run by computer god like benevolent minds that help mankind when humanity expands into other alien civilizations. Ancient aliens hidden in DNA benign until contact with intelligent races, battlebot subminds with personalities, human and computer star captains, viruses that make people immortal, alive dead people, instant runcible transport to out worlds are only some of his ideas and I haven't even scratched the surface. Definitely a worthwhile read.
