ORIGINAL FICTION: "Dog Days, Part 2"

Republibot 3.0's picture

Part 1 is online here http://www.republibot.com/content/original-fiction-dog-days-part-1 and this is part 2:

Beauchamp woke up to find himself on earth, hallucinating that a dog was looking at him with the somewhat confused expression dogs sometimes get when they’re contemplating deep matters. He was disoriented, and confused, flat on his back, but he had to be on earth because the gravity was much heavier than on Mars, and he could smell plants in the air. How the hell did I get back here?, he wondered, how long have I been out? What…oh, yeah, the aliens in the dome…what the hell?

A Spoiler-Filled Review of “Enemy At The Gate,” The Series Finale of Stargate: Atlantis

…And just like that, it’s done. Five years, and it’s over, it all came down to this. If Stargate: SG1 was ‘The Little Show That Could,’ an unexpectedly popular show that came out of nowhere, survived several cancellations, and had a wildly successful ten-year run, then, alas, Atlantis was ‘The Big Show That Couldn’t.’ Don’t get me wrong – I’m unquestionably a fan, and there’s a lot to like about Atlantis – but it never enjoyed the mass-media popularity nor the crossover support from viewers who don’t generally watch Science Fiction that SG1 did.

• The greatest Science Fiction Series of all time, “The Prisoner,” is now available online – the entire miniseries (17 episodes) is free. Time to throw out those moldy old copies you taped off of PBS thirty years ago, and thank your wife for keeping you from buying those horribly overpriced A&E DVDs of the show. Check it out here: http://www.amctv.com/originals/the-prisoner-1960s-series/
