Ok, here we go. Back for a shortened (thankfully) season of reviews of this terrible, terrible show. Sorry I missed last week, I will try to loop back and review the season premiere as soon as I can get my hands on it. My only prayer this year is that it doesn’t get canceled mid-season and then they dump all of the remaining episodes into one marathon back to back showing all at once, like Syfy did with Caprica. I honestly don’t think I would be able to survive that.

Vampires Beware!

Last week, a woman in Fruita, Colorado (official motto: “No, we’re not that frozen drink at Taco Bell”), was in a one car wreck caused by, she told authorities, a vampire. According to the woman—who didn’t want her identity published, for reasons I’m sure we can all understand—she was just driving home when suddenly there was a vampire, right in the middle of the road.

Episode Review: V – Pound of Flesh (Season 1, Episode 6)

Welcome back my fellow V-ites. According to our ever handy Comcast program synopsis, on tonight’s very special episode of “V”: Anna launches a pilot program to allow select groups of humans to live on the spaceships; Tyler uncovers a secret about his mom; Valerie’s accelerated pregnancy becomes an issue for Ryan; a sacrifice is made to save Ryan.

Before we get started I just wanted to be honest and state for the record that I question how good of a reviewer I am for this show, because I honestly don’t like it. It is painful to sit through. It has a terrible pacing problem. The story feels like it was written by a secluded writer suffering from Michael Bay syndrome. It just jumps around wantonly every 5 seconds. Lost has a ton of storylines that it is juggling but I always feel like they take the appropriate amount of time that each character requires. V on the other hand feels like the whole story is being told in short hand.

Anyway, enough of my whining – let’s get down the reason you are most likely here, right after the jump.

The Top-Ten Worst Science Fiction TV Series of All Time

This is an entirely subjective list, but I’ve tried to be fair: I’ve excluded children’s shows such as “Jason of Star Command” and sitcoms such as “Mork and Mindy,” which, though terrible, weren’t even *trying* to reach the bar. Also, I’ve decided to take the series individually, and not take “Star Trek” or “Stargate” as a whole, since the quality frankly differs quite a bit from installment to installment.

EPISODE REVIEW: V – A Bright New Day (Season 1, Episode 3)

The third episode of the re-envisioned “V”, or is it re-imagined, was a nice incremental upgrade over the previous two episodes. To this point the show has been deathly dull, and that is on top of being unimaginably boring. According to our ever trusty and handy Comcast show guide, in tonight’s episode – A Bright New Day – Anna receives the first of 100 diplomatic visas issued to the American Visitors; Erica is paired with an alien officer to track down the source of a death threat; and Ryan recruits allies to oppose the Visitors.

So, on that slightly hopeful note let’s make the jump and see what we thinks.

22, 20, 16, or 13? How short of a TV season are you willing to tolerate to get your geek buzz?

For as long as I can remember - and probably a lot longer - American television seasons have been creeping downward. A more-or-less standard broadcast season is presently 22 episodes, and that seems more-or-less about fine to me. I don’t complain. However a lot of my older friends can’t wrap their brain around how *Few* episodes shows crank out per year, now, however. The first season of Star Trek consisted of 29 episodes. The Wild Wild West’s first season did 28. The first season of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea did an amazing *Thirty Two!*
