Warehouse 13 is a hit

08 Dec 2009

The new SYFY channels series Warehouse 13 is a hit and has been renewed for another season of shows. The series has scored the highest ratings for SYFY in their entire 17 years of existence. It is a fun little series that has the potential to be one of those cult hits that stays around for quite a while.

SCI FI WIRE reported that;

Warehouse 13 has become the most-watched show in Syfy's 17-year history, averaging 3.7 million viewers a week. It is also the number-one new series on Tuesdays this summer for adults 25-54, and it broke records when the fourth episode on July 28 delivered the most females (1.9 million) of any series telecast in Syfy's history.

Now I know some out there don't have SYFY channel and feel A little left out but one thing cool about living in the here and now , stations like SYFY give you an opportunity to watch programs on video via the web. In SYFY's case its called REWIND ( click here ) and it has some of the episodes including the latest of Warehouse and other programs.

UFO (2011)

08 Dec 2009

This is becoming a running theme in movies now. Take an old series and make a movie out of it. Does anyone remember UFO a 1970's sci fi series that had to deal with an organization called SHADO (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organization) that was in charge of dealing with alien enemy threats. DUH... Well here is where I show both my age and my early geekness for all things sci fi. I do remember this series. My father hated it thinking it was nonsense but as a child of things that were sci fi and such , especially the british ones like Tom Bakers role in Dr Who and such , I loved it. Then again probably if I was to watch an episode today I would have to pick my jaw off the floor and give a loud WTF. Then again I still enjoy some of those older shows with the same childhood zest I did back when. I still probably will think the space girls all in tight silver outfits and odd color wigs are still hot.

Battlestar Galactica (2011) Movie ?

08 Dec 2009

The answer to the title is of this blog is ... YEP !! I was confused when I heard the rumor and I did not make a move to write about it thinking it was disgruntle fans of the original. Or fans that wanted to believe that Battlestar was not ending in the way it did. But it is actually going to happen. This time it will hold true to the original series that aired in the late 70's. Most likely Universal thinks with the series that was a hit people would not ..... could not get enough of it. They are probably right. After the successful remake of Star Trek I can bet you that this will be as equally enjoyable to watch and will reinvigorate the franchise once again.

What was once a rumor and now has been confirmed the movie will be both produced and directed by X-men and Supermans Bryan Singer. There is not much more details to this project except it will not be based off the SYFY channels version and it will be a reimagination (That is the buzz word that is being thrown around on all the blogs) of the original.

Anime fans will love this one. Straight form the Anime cartoons on TV the Avatar characters will come to life. The movie which be released sometime in 2010 and is produce by M. Night Shyamalan looks like one of those must see movies that will be the beginning of a long series of films. Seems like finally all these movies like Spiderman , Batman , GI Joe and Transformers that are based of toys , games , and comics are being done right for a change.

Plot summary from imdb
