on Broadway for instance, we review the film Tron:Legacy

and it’s impending cancellation. (Steve even chimes in!) Plus a little chit-chat on a few favorite episodes from some of our favorite sci-fi series and a few that we think are a little unappreciated and under-rated. (Floyd’s Space 1999
may fall into both categories.)Episode 24: January 16th - Print is Dead?
- A couple of years ago we hosted a panel discussion at the Denver Starfest convention. The topic was the evolving landscape of the printed word. New e-books had just recently come onto the scene and I was curious what the authors thought of this new medium and whether or not they saw a new beginning or the beginning of the end.
We thought this panel was lost to time due to some severe technical problems.
After much jiggery-pokery we are happy to announce that the audio survived!
Authors in attendance were…Jeromie Carr & James Dunn
, Carrie Vaughn
, Julia Phillips
, Jeanne Stein
, & David BoopEpisode 25: January 30th - The Green Horrible Alien of V
The scrapping of the Alien prequel in favor of an "original" sci-fi film from Ridley Scott, the movie we wish was scrapped, The Green Hornet, more evidence that SyFy has little interest in the science-fiction it airs, and why we all really like V!Episode 26: February 13th - The Movies of 2011, Part One
