NBC/Sci-Fi intentionally trying to kill off Battlestar Galatica

January 22, 2007

I’m sorry, but there is no other reason that Battlestar Galatica would be moved off of Friday night’s prime time slot and placed so late in the evening on Sunday night, especially with the first episode beginning right after (or in this case during) the NFL Conference Championships.  There is no excuse for this.  Wait, maybe there is a new hit show scheduled to be aired instead.  Let’s see their Friday night line up:

7:00pm:  “Heroes” – Now, ok, this is a good show, but this is a rerun from Monday night.  I like the fact that it is on Sci-Fi though where it belongs.

8:00pm:  “Dresden Files” – This seems like it will be a good show, however this is a rerun from Sunday night.  Why is this show slated for Sunday night as well?  Must be something really good in the 9 and 10pm time slots.

9:00pm:  “Jake 2.0” – This was a cute show a few years ago, but it’s dated and not worthy of a prime time slot.  Why isn’t this scheduled earlier in the evening or on another day?

10:00pm: “Jake 2.0” – Again???  Really, I’m a big fan of Keegan Connor Tracy (and who wouldn’t be), and I enjoy seeing her grace my big screen TV, but this is prime time folks! 

So, the cable channel which dominated Friday nights is now going soft.  No Stargate SG-1 until April, Battlestar Galatica moved to Sunday, and Doctor Who isn’t slated till when . . . June?  Why don’t they at least put Enterprise or Eureka on Friday?  I seriously believe the programmers at Sci-Fi have lost it and in need of being replaced.

PUT BATTLESTAR GALATICA BACK ON FRIDAYS!!!

Funnies: “Is this the way to Amarillo”

January 21, 2007

After listening to the news coverage today of all the snow that Amarillo, Texas was receiving, it reminded me of a not-so-cold video about Amarillo I saw a year ago.  Back in 2005, members of the Royal Dragoon Guard serving in Al Faw, Iraq took some free time to film a spoof video to the song “Is this the way to Amarillo” before returning home from their 6 month tour.  When the video was e-mailed to their friends back in London, the video demand ended up crashing the Ministry of Defenses server.  No harm was done, and no one was punished for their actions.

And now, it is my pleasure to bring you the best music video ever to come out of Iraq!

Movies: Eragon

January 5, 2007

Eragon– Let me start off with stating that I haven’t read the book, so I cannot compare the movie against it.  With that said, I thought the movie was pretty good.  I personally was interested in seeing how they portrayed the dragon.  Being a fan of dragons, I enjoy seeing how different artists view what dragons should look like and how they move.  The computer graphics used in Eragon for the dragon is blended well with the real environment, even at the points were the character walks up to and mounts the dragon in a single shot.
