That Plane Crash in the Hudson River

Republibot 3.0's picture

This isn't even remotely Science Fiction, but it is pretty amazing: This is footage of the plane ditching in the river in Manhattan just the other day.

The plane hits the water just about 2:00 in to the clip, but the amazing completely remarkable and heroic part is that a ferryboat gets on the scene in three minutes!

I’ll be back later tonight to give a spoiler-filled review of the new Galactica episode, now that the Sci Fi Channel has finally deigned to run the last batch. To fill your time before it comes on, however, we here at Republibot think it's an appropriate time for us to place our bets on how it'll end, and what the series is all about.

First question: will the finale and the ultimate fate of the protagonists be happy or sad?

…and now, in some crazy and sad coincidence, Ricardo Montalban has died on the same day as Patrick MacGoohan. According to legend, Aaron Spelling was watching repeats of “The Prisoner” on PBS in the mid-seventies, and while he didn’t care for the show itself, he liked a lot of aspects of it. “Fantasy Island,” then, started out as his attempt to build a show around bits he liked from the SF/Spy drama: The mysterious and always-classy #2 became Roark, the midget that was always following #2 around became Tattoo, “The Village” and its environs became Fantasy Island itself.
