    "Northern Exposure" was cool show full of creative scenes and characters, therefore I know Sam Egan can write.<p> But will SciFi let him write? This is what I'm not sure of. Miniseries (how to you pluralize this word?) are totally hit or miss, usually miss due to underfunded production and effects, but sometimes they're entertaining.<p> I'm not really fired up or down on this. Lukewarm, my brothers, is what I am.

    It's Quartet or Tetralogy. Not Quadrilogy! It's a made up word. What is wrong with Tetralogy? It's correct and sounds far cooler. Just say there was another Alien movie. What would they call it then? A Quintology? A Funfology? A fucking fuckology? Fucking marketing cunts.

    "Quadrilogy" can be used.

    by Ayii

    @thefrood - Languages evolve and just because "Quadrilogy" is not in the dictionary doesn't mean that its use is improper. That's the whole reason behind the prefix system, to combine words. My guess on a fifth Alien film would make it a "pentology", just because "quad" and "quint" are too similar and dumb people wouldn't know the difference.

    by Marillion

    They'll get the Mediaeval Baebes to do the soundtrack.. You know, since their last CD was called Mirabilis? Hell, let's get the Baebes some starring rolls.. THEN I'll watch it!!

    Why people watch this station I have no clue. How the idiots got their jobs who run that station I have no clue. If I ever want to watch a cheese ass crapfest horror movie I know the channel to go to. Why it is called the Sci-Fi channel who knows. Must be those ultra smart people who run the place. SPIKE TV is more of a Sci-Fi channel that the Sci-Fi channel is.
