First Look At Torchwood's "Miracle Day" Trialer 1 & 2

Share


So the new Starz Torchwood series looks amazing.  Some of my observations:


  • Its not very British, even Jack seems more American
  • Big budget, quality looks amazing
  • From the trailer it looks like they will be down playing Torchwood's history


Regardless, it looks amazing and I can't wait to see it!

Avatar meets Eminem in a crazy Mac vs PC music video

Share
I've seen different uses of the Avatar themes and costumes, but none of it was tech related; until now.



From the video description: "Parallels free trial http://parallels.com/desktop - This is a spoof of Eminem's "Not Afraid" set in a Microsoft-inspired office and an Apple-inspired Avatar world. Look out for "Mech-Steve" Ballmer and "Navi-Steve" Jobs going head-to-head!"

This is one of the more original uses of the Na'vi outfits. Has anyone seen any other original Avatar themed videos?

SyFy did not Kill the SF Genre (But it is digging the grave!)

Share
This post is another guest post by Twitter user Keith, aka @webdivemaster. This post is Keith's Commentary.


Science Fiction used to be a great hallmark for television viewers in one form or another, but in recent times has seen a steady decline in quality and durability in the markets, making it seem as though the purer form of the genre has been buried at last.

Only 5 years ago one could see many of the best and worst of Science Fiction over the span of months, to include the likes of many of the best classics.

Classics... Yes, the genre includes such programs as Twilight Zone, and Outer Limits, but unless you were born in the newest millennium, you have probably had the chance to see these episodes at least twice, and probably have seen a lot of them if you were born in this millennium. Lets get to the root of the genres' classics, big and small...
