BSG Embed S4x06 "Escape Velocity"

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 29, 2008

The SciFi Channel pulled the old switcheroo on us last week, and did not shoe the full show last, only the fist 20 minutes. I’m glad I missed that…I might have gone off the deep end. Any how, here is the Battlestar Galactica Episode “Escape Velocity” I’ll be watching it as soon as it’s embedded.

Season 4 of Battlestar Galactica

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 4, 2008


This is my favorite show right now (thanks to iTunes since I don’t have TV service) even though Universal and NBC raped the concept by not allowing it to continue through a fifth season. Universal has become almost as stupid as Paramount Studios.

This is why BSG will not be able to replace Babylon 5 as the greatest Science Fiction TV Series ever.

Dune 3.0 Forthcoming From Paramount

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 19, 2008

A local blogger, Petulant, of Petulant Rumblings, cued me in on the story that Paramount will be making another version of Dune:

I still love David Lynch’s version, though it was heavily edited. The Sci-Fi mini-series was ok, more faithful, but lacked the budget to really adapt. Don’t even get me started on the expansion of Princess Irulan in the Sci-Fi version to give that actress more screen time. ARGH!

I would love to see the Dune books given the Lord of the Rings treatment. I was a Dune devotee, more so than LOTR, and they are even more prescient today.

Commentary

The Dune Saga is my favorite Science Fiction epic. The story spans tens of thousands of years, and is very rich in texture and philosophy.

The official website for the Dune novels is a good place to find out info and hang out with other fans on the discussion board. No, I won’t tell you what my Screen Name is over there. Here is the prologue and end titles to the original 1984 version:
