    SciFi's Galactica 1980 MiniMarathon.... bleh!

    Ok, what is the deal exactly? Battlestar Galactica (original series) was, looking back through nostalgia colored glasses, an enjoyable show. Sure, it was often campy but it had some undefinable charm that made me watch and enjoy it. I liked the characters and the chemistry of the show. In...

    Is SciFi on TV going the way of the dinosaur?

    I am becoming depressed. It seems that SciFi on TV (& cable for that matter) seems to be going into the crapper OR if it does have quality it dies in the ratings. I mean, think about it. There was some really good quality SciFi tried on air recently, but it has quickly withered on the...

    A question YOU MUST read. Consider your reply carefully.

    I'm wondering. Who has the record for the thread posting that has the MOST views WITHOUT anyone posting a reply. I figure there might be another level to the "thread killer" phenomenon. Person #1. A person that posts to a long running thread immediately bringing the discussion to a halt...

    "Another stupid question" - Was it zoinked?

    "Another stupid question" Thread I started yesterday is missing. I'm guessing it caused a problem. Because it appears to have been "zoinked, zapped, removed." Admins, did someone get carried away with its idea? If so, sorry. :b Ah well, I still have that "other thread." Dr. Joe

    Father Ted on BBC America?

    Ok, I stumbled upon a BBC TV show called "Father Ted." Father Ted is a catholic priest that resides on a small english island (Craggy Is) and works with (takes care of) a wacky bunch of other fathers. (Father Jack - a drunk, mean, wacky very old priest - AND - Father Dougal - a very naive...

    "Seldom Posters League" & Lounge Dedication

    Do you seldom post? Do you read posts every day but hardly respond? Is your middle name "lurker," or "lurky," or "hides in the shadows?" Do you look at a long thread, know the answer to a question, almost post but then find someone has beaten you to posting the answer? Do you have a...

    Anyone know? I got a haircut the other day and asked my barber why the twirling red, white, and blue pole was the symbol (in US?) for a barber shop. He did not know. Anyone?

    Yesterday. It just isn't real to me yet.

    What happened yesterday. I keep thinking about it in terms of "that movie I saw yesterday," "the show on TV," "the terrible horror film."......sadly, even though I *know* that it was real, I keep slipping back into denial. I read the testimonials, the bios of casualties, the personal...

    HDTV, SDTV, DTV, & local CBS station craziness

    My local CBS station is funny in kinda a sad way. They started to advertise they had gone "DT" but were neglecting to tell anyone the station numbers for the "DT" broadcast in the commercials (this started back in December) So I called them up and asked, "what station number!!?" The...
