Fringe on Science Channel

Fringe-season-1

I have to admit something, I’ve never seen Fringe.  Yeah I know, some nerd I am.  Well, apparently I didn’t get the memo when this show began that it was science fiction and/or supernatural in nature.  I think if I knew, I would’ve been a regular viewer.  I think the fact that it was on Fox had something to do with why I didn’t watch it, because I have always connected Fox with Fox News so therefore I refused to watch it.  I got over that and ended up watching other shows, but I still didn’t know Fringe was SciFi/Supernatural.

I did add it to my Netflix queue, but I don’t have Netflix anymore because I never found time to watch anything, so I canceled because I was paying for nothing.  Science channel has decided to air Fringe every Tuesday, which gives me a second chance to watch it from the beginning.

November 20th, 2012, Science channel is breathing new life into this show and I will be able to watch it since it comes on at 5pm here.  That works perfectly for me because I normally watch Attack of the Show on G4 at 4pm and this ends at 8pm right when my regular shows begin.  It couldn’t have worked out any better.

I don’t know anything about Fringe, so I am going in blind just like everyone else did before the show began.  I don’t want to know anything about it because I don’t like spoilers.  It’s like when you start reading a book or are in the middle and someone says oh hey, the twin did it.  ARGH!  I don’t want to know!  I have heard how gruesome it is though, so that I am prepared for since I see gruesome stuff on my other supernatural shows.  I guess I have this “I’ve seen it all so nothing shocks me” attitude going in.

I look forward to being dazzled by Joshua Jackson, or as I like to call him, Pacey.

How We Can Save “V” From Being Canceled

I am sad to announce that V has been canceled.  (insert crowd booing and the sounds of children crying here)

I found out this morning, well, just a few minutes ago really.  I was tweeted by Ilana Rapp who happens to be the person who spearheaded the campaign to bring V back to tv after 25 years.  She made my dream come true and for that I bow down to her.

Unfortunately, ABC canceled it due to not enough viewers.  How could anyone not watch this awesome show?  But, there is a way to bring it back.  Letter writing.  Why not emails?  Because they can be diverted to a spam filter and they can also be deleted.  A huge bag of letters will prove that V fans are serious about getting their show back.

We waited for 25 years for it to come back and only got 2 seasons and now they are canceling it because of bad ratings?  It’s just not fair!  I heard that Syfy already stated that they are not currently interested which really sucks because when V came back on the air, SyFy had marathons with the original V.  So to have them say they are not interested is very confusing to me.  It is a science fiction based television show, how can they not be interested?  It makes no sense.

You know what, I had actually written to them years ago telling them that I would love it if they brought V back.  Not just to run the old series again but to also turn it into a new series.  Of course I never heard back from them.  Little did I know Ilana Rapp was already working hard to make it happen.

If you love V, and how could you not, please join the 16,784 (and growing) people on the Project Alice facebook fan page and get involved to get this show its 3rd season that it deserves.  I waited for 25 years for this show to return to the air and to have it get canceled like this really upsets me.  So please, help get this show on TNT.  They know drama!

The Cape on NBC

Anyone who knows me knows that I love science fiction, supernatural and comic book hero tv shows. This is my new favorite super hero show since I’m losing Smallville at the end of this season. Thanks NBC for giving me a replacement. Although nothing can replace Clark Kent, I’m at least getting my comic book hero fix.

I am no expert on The Cape so I’ll leave that up to my favorite comic book website ComicBooked.com with their blog post Who is The Cape? That at least should answer any question about the show, the hero and the villains on the show.

Comic Booked is going to be reviewing the show… well, go ahead and read this quote:

“So future Cape fans, I will be the one reviewing this show for the whole first season! You can count on detailed and entertaining views from both a comic book fan and a television pro. Super hero dramas are kind of my specialty, so I’ve seen just about everything. Let’s hope this show does the genre some JUSTICE! (COUGH Birds of Prey COUGH)”

I actually liked Birds of Prey lol.

Keep up with the reviews on ComicBooked.com, watch the show on NBC Monday nights at 9pm/8central and watch clips and full episodes on Hulu or the NBC website.
