… gets run over by a dreaming Blade Runner…
I put one of my short stories online for your reading pleasure, you can find it here. Feel free to comment!
Want to save time? Stay away from these three shows, they suck.
Sorry Kevin, this one is just poop. I am very disappointed in you. What happened? I predict “Reaper” will not make it to Season 2. And sorry Tyler, after “Invasion” you yet again stumbled into another doomed series.
Ihad says: Stay away from the Reaper!
Bionic Woman (2007)
Another 70s remake. Give me a break! Who needs this crap? Horrible acting, horrible script writing. Please axe this show now.
Ihad says: One of the producers quit after 1 week … he was smart. Be smart too, switch channels.
Flash Gordon (2007)
And yet another remake, this time of one of my sacred childhood memories. Granted the classic series is horrible but it is classic and charming in its own way. This remake is just horrible. What were you thinking? Lucky you, Season 2 is already canceled.
Ihad says: Watch at your own peril. I will tell the real Ming!
What you may want to watch are these shows, though!
Pushing Daisies (2007)
Ned, a pie maker, can bring dead people back to life by touching them. The catch? After one minute someone else will die if he doesn’t touch the victim again. Surreal, witty, funny, obscure and refreshingly delicious. The show premieres on ABC, Oct. 3rd.
Ihad says: Watch it!
High-stakes litigator Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) is the head of this twisted legal thriller series. Trust no one. There will be blood.
Ihad says: A must watch!
How I met your mother (2005)
No new series and I only have seen the pilot so far. Hilarious… no, legen… dary! The series has been highly recommended to me by a friend. It is returning with Season 3 this Monday, September 24th, on CBS.
Ihad says: A must watch.
And of course Heroes, House and Boston Legal, all returning next week.
The 3rd installment of the Spider-Man franchise is supposed to be the best yet. Does it live up to the hype? Let’s find out!
“Spider-Man 3” tagged as “The battle within” features two new villains Sandman (Thomas Haden Church) and Venom (Topher Grace) although the latter takes over Spider-Man first turning him into an aggressive Peter “Saturday Night Fever” Parker, strolling the streets of NY city, singing, snipping his fingers and hunting skirts. Certainly not what I was expecting as a side effect of being possessed by some evil, sinister organism from outer space called “Venom”…
“Threshold” was recommended to me by a friend. I never heard of the series before and I cannot share his views and must say that I completely understand why this series never saw a Season 2. We can blame the female government contingency analyst and her puppy for its failure!
The scenario is simple. Earth is being invaded by aliens through DNA mutation, i.e. exposed to a shape shifting alien probe that emits a certain frequency of sounds human DNA is altered and turned into an alien able to infect others. Granted, at first the pilot gets you interested in this whole alien invasion theme but the little novelty that is left soon wears off and then there’s really nothing left that would warrant viewing this show.
Not only is the lead role miscast the scripting on top of it is riddled with so many errors, loopholes, inconsistencies and ahorrent dialogue that the whole scenario for which she claims to have ultimate authority lends zero credibility and thus must disappoint on all accounts.
Season 1 was cancelled and taken off air and good riddance! Alternatively we could blame Brannon Braga for this one, too.
