Wow. Tuesday I mentioned that Playback article detailing some of the projects Vanessa Piazza and I have in development, among them a sci-fi series called TimEscape. Well, yesterday fans, clearly impatient for another rollicking sci-fi show, got the ball rolling by establishing a TimEscapeHQ twitter account. It’s early, as several pieces still have to fall into place, but who’s going to argue with almost 500 followers in less than 24 hours?
So, if you love Stargate and Dark Matter (and, for that matter, other fun character-driven sci-fi adventure like Farscape, Firefly, and Cowboy Bebop to name a few), click on the link (or visit @timescape_hq) and give them a follow. Get the early scoop on what will no doubt become your new favorite sci-fi show!
I’ve already mentioned the things that I think make for a great science fiction series: action, adventure, humor, twists, turns, surprises, a compelling character-driven story, a sense of friendship and family. But I’d like to know what draws YOU to sci-fi. Especially fans of Stargate and Dark Matter. What was it that you loved most about those particular shows?
Weigh in with your thoughts in the comments section!
Now, on to the Stargate: SG-1 Greatest Episode Tournament!
#1 Window of Opportunity vs #8 Moebius Part 2
They’re two of SG-1’s most humorous episodes, yet both invariably deliver an emotional punch as well. Can Moebius spring the upset on the seemingly unstoppable juggernaut that is WoO?
#2 The Fifth Race vs #7 Ripple Effect
Ripple Effect has its hands full taking on another big first round winner in The Fifth Race. But do a roomful of Carters and underwear Cam have the fallatus to take down the Asgard?
#3 Lost City Part 2 vs # 6 Heroes Part 2
It’s a battle of the Part 2’s, both written by Robert C. Cooper and both hugely important episodes in the Stargate: SG-1 canon.
#4 The Pegasus Project vs #5 Children of the Gods
On the strength of a solid upset victory over favored Abyss, The Pegasus Project sets its sights on the pilot that started it all: Children of the Gods (both written by Brad Wright). This one may well go down to the wire.
So, place your bets! Who will be in our Final Four?
And who’s up for a Final Four rewatch?
