Re: Reaction videos

So after a kerfuffle with WB, Medusa is back to posting B5 recaps. She just did "The Face of the Enemy" and was appropriately furious in, like, five different directions.

I'm quite looking...

Re: What an alternate TL where there was a space sci fi show on TV from 2010-14 look

There are lots of them! But they don't get made, or get made on small scales, because we have to remember that the investors aren't in this to make art, they're in this to make cash. And proven...

Re: B5 Reboot?? Is it true??!!?!

Futurama's coming back? That show has more lives than an exceptionally lucky cat.

HBO does seem to nurse its shows a bit. And they can hardly complain about low numbers if it's behind a paywall.

Re: B5 Reboot?? Is it true??!!?!

Re: Dune

I will also admit that it's one of my own rules that "no ending is better than a bad ending," so I partially withdraw my earlier semi-objection. (How's that for hedging my bets?)
