    Sanctuary is actually pretty good

    by MonkeyManReturns

    Okay - so the budget is a bit weak...but generally, its a good show. I like!

    Warehouse 13

    by Cr8z13

    That Allison Scagliotti is a cutie, saw her on AOTS the other day. Might have to start watching that show.

    Sanctuary dumb, W13 possible Eureka.

    by EvilWizardGlick

    Warehouse 13 keeps getting better. Kind of reminds me of Eureka. <p> Cool if they did a crossover.

    Warehouse 13 is good

    by shutupfanboy

    I know fanboys like allison, but I get a Wesley Crusher vibe from her character. The know it all teenager that will eventually annoy the hell out of everyone by her third episode, but they won't replace her, because she is hot.

    Shutupfanboy ...

    ... you think ... Wesley is HOT?

    Eureka recording sucks

    by jaweekes

    The Eureka recording sucks! I can't really hear what's happening, as some idiot didn't turn off a mic. Lots of background noise, and maybe someone farting?

    Polish a turd, it's still a turd. They're circling the drain, folks... SANCTUARY: Let's make a cheap-ass HELLBOY rip-off and take the bold step of excluding the actual HELLBOY... Because everybody knows that Amanda Tapping's HORRIBLE English accent is enough to carry this show. Plus, we have to keep it as inexpensive as possible so we can spend more money on the redneck homoerotica of ECW!!! And their movies... Proof that the new formula (cheesy home-computer CGI animation, coupled with staggeringly retarded scripts and the hiring of one has-0been actor) is the DEFINITION of 'Point of Diminishing Returns.'

  • July 30, 2009, 11:24 a.m. CST

    BTW SG: Universe...

    by blhotz

    Has a +1 million dollar budget than SG: Atlantis (which had a pretty hefty budget). Show is looking EPIC!!

    Warehouse 13 is improving!

    by ltgalloway

    The pilot suffered, as most pilots do, from a flood of exposition and cliches, but each episode has greatly improved on the series as a whole and it looks like they have some cool things planned for the future. It was a little rocky off the bat, but its really finding its stride now and I'd encourage anyone to stick with it. In the latest episode I kept thinking the girl was too good an actor to be a one-off character. Now it seems she's a series regular which should be good. And Saul Rubenik is, to use a word he seems to enjoy, the shit. Really hoping this series continues and gets a second season. We could all stand some original and interesting content for a change.

    Warehouse 13 are making that emoteen reg?

    by Harrow

    Damn! Way to ruin a show that showed Eureka-fun promise. Will keep watching, but the latest episode was the weakest, and not impressed they're keeping sister schizo on :(

    Eureka cameraman is a moron

    by Dignan17

    I finally fixed my logon to AICN to tell that cameraman he's a failure. Soccer moms have better camcorder skills. He was all set in the beginning, but then he/she started fiddling with the camcorder and the mic and completely failed. It's unlistenable. And where the hell is Sheriff Carter?

    Fluffy panels

    by lockesbrokenleg

    I wish I could go to comic con, but I realize a lot of these panels are just ass kissing feasts, that really don't accomplish much.

    Why post Eureka vid with no sound?

    by SmokingRobot

    Or sound so bad you cannot hear what anyone is saying past the first three minutes? Really. Why post this?

    could you at least just say that you couldn't get the Venture interview.

    Stupid BSG...

    by jimmy rabbitte

    I saw the DVD extra, from season 4.5 yesterday. Eick and Moore outright admitted that they had no idea what the cylon "plan" was; and a line of dialogue, from this new one-off two hour episode (not a movie) says as much. Cavill states: "There is no 'Plan'." That's all you need to know.<p> Does anybody want to buy my BSG DVD's?

  • July 30, 2009, 3:54 p.m. CST

    no giant cgi /cgy pythons?

    FUCK! The Cylon plan was to make copies and

    infiltrate the colonies THAT was the plan. Not this TV movie bullshit.

    Sanctuary: great premise, lousy execution

    by Billy Goat

    I thought the webseries version showed promise, but... for a show that's supposed to be about an organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of mythical/paranormal creatures, they sure do end up killing a lot of them. I was hoping there would be more monster/creatures running the place alongside humans, like the caveman butler guy. And then the whole immortals/vampires subplot became the main plot, and I started losing interest.

    lockesbrokenleg on The Plan

    by cymbalta4thedevil

    If the Cylon Plan was to make copies and infiltrate the colonies why did they attack the colonies? Wouldn't it have made more sense to have a copy of each of the twelve on each planet influencing things? Or even multiple copies in different cities? <br /><br />If there's only thousands of humans left instead of millions of humans to hide among, it kind of makes it harder to hide doesn't it?

  • July 31, 2009, 7:57 p.m. CST

    Hey dioxholster

    BG was/is a show about the human

    by rben

    condition no matter what forms it takes in the future. Nailing down exactly what the plan is has no relevance when you are dealing with the human heart in conflict with itself. That's what distinguishes true art for piffle like the Transformers movies. Art survives. commerce does not. But in the case of the new BG, Ron Moore was able to do both. Even (especially) the real world does not have a logical thru-line and Moore realizes this. The plan is/was a way to move thru the story, like hitchcock's old plot divice, the mcguffin. I'm glad that Moore continues to move art in a forward direction. We need more of that in the SF film film (sounds like District 9 will also harken back to that kind of social commentary which we need in these caotic times we continue to live in.)

  • Aug. 1, 2009, 7:27 p.m. CST

    Well, that's why they made the copies, to gather

    by lockesbrokenleg

    information and attack. Remember we saw the Six on the Aemistice Station, and then she destroyed it with the base star. Other copies were placed on different ships.

  • Aug. 1, 2009, 9:20 p.m. CST


    by jimmy rabbitte

    I understand what you're saying; but Eick and Moore have stated that the whole idea of a Cylon plan was nonexistant. It wasn't some ethereal driving force to push the narrative forward; they simply tacked it on, with the idea that it might mean something later. Not only was it never properly explained, they never even provided vague narrative clues, beyond young Bill Adama stumbling upon the hybrid experiments. So now they have to put out this stand alone two-hour footnote, of an episode, in an attempt to tie up the glaring loose ends.<p> The show had its' good points but it sort of lost momentum, in the third season. When it ended I was left with the hollow feeling that they had strayed, from what they originally intended. It's a show that started out as a strong idea that descended into a bunch of verbal jerking off.

    Herc, what about VENTURE BROS THE PANEL??

    by Squashua

    Or maybe the interview. Or not.

    Y'know Herc

    by Squashua

    You're just pissed b/c I accidentally called you Capone in the Venture questions submission thread. Don't take it out on everyone just because of me.
