Jamie Bamber’s Latest
Space Show, OUTCASTS!!
I am – Hercules!!
The BBC is mounting an 8-episode sci-fi series created by “MI-5” writer Ben Richards and starring Jamie Bamber, who played Battlestar Galactica’s Lee Adama. Set in 2040, “Outcasts” follows interplanetary settlers who have lost contact with Earth.
Smells like “Earth 2” to me, and a newly released set of production photos does little to dissuade me.
It’s headed to BBC America in December.
Find more of those photos at DenOfGeek.com.

...in... the future!!!!

That's pretty ambitious for this show to be set only 30 years from now, especially the US manned space program has been killed. Should have set it 100 years ahead.

By setting it in 2040, they can get away with using slightly modified current tech, rather than creating anything new. Kind of like how BSG had spaceships that could travel FTL, but in all other aspects the tech looked like earth today.

Whatever dick came up with that name needs shot in the head.

Adama will be showering on Galactica like Bobby Ewing in Dallas.

Wasn't he on a Brit version of Law & Order?

Do they find the Statue of Liberty sunk in sand?

Aug. 11, 2010, 3:58 p.m. CST
When will it be on BBC?
Aug. 11, 2010, 3:59 p.m. CST
Over my years being a nerd I've met lots and lots of people. I have to say Mr.Bamber was the most arrogant entitled celeb I had the displeasure of talking with. It was sad because I really enjoyed his work on Galatica.

Why is there a spoiler alert?

Hell, BBC, Syfy, anyone bankroll Firefly. Why keep developing halfassed sci-fi shows when you have a show with a devoted following cut short WAY before it's time and just begging to be brought back?
Aug. 11, 2010, 4:01 p.m. CST
wow, I can't wait to see this...
Aug. 11, 2010, 4:01 p.m. CST
The production teams really need to start finding other film locations other than East California. And why do colonists keep landing on planets that can't grow food?
Aug. 11, 2010, 4:14 p.m. CST
I'm assuming that's supposed to be Mission Impossible 4
Aug. 11, 2010, 4:22 p.m. CST
MI:6 is the external security service - the one James Bond works for in da movies. More details on OUTCASTS here from the BBC. Fans of geekery and all-round good acting will be pleased to see Liam Cunningham in the cast: http://bit.ly/9ivVDZ

Should be on the BBC beforehand sometime in the autumn. Also, I think it was filmed in South Africa. Probably near where The Prisoner was filmed.
Aug. 11, 2010, 5:40 p.m. CST
Maybe he'll go all fatsuit for this show...gfy
Aug. 11, 2010, 6:31 p.m. CST
it was like a young person version of Spooks. Which is shit too. Whats the betting this features another parent-seperated-from-child scenario and love triangle as subplots?

And now following in the footsteps of Hercules the ignorant, a misplaced and inappropriate political rant. Anyone who believes "for their own good, whether they like it or not" is a Socialist and a Commie. The new healthcare bill includes the forced purchasing of products that some do not want or need. It is tantamount to an existence tax. It is tantamount to extortion. If the government decides a GM vehicle is safer because GM is owned by the government, can they force you to purchase a GM vehicle, or else be taxed for buying a Ford? Everybody say it with me (or maybe just the Americans) - "I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them." - Thomas Jefferson.

heading for a hell planet penitentiary. <p> The guards and the convicts have to cooperate in order to survive, but they're all psychopaths. <p> Then they meet a tribe of Bimbo manhunters. <p> Instead, it will frat boys on a road trip.

Took a look at the pics via the link and noticed Hermione Norris is in it. My interest level in this one just went up a gazillion percent! Brit TV viewers already know, but check out her ice queen mode in WIRE IN THE BLOOD, COLD FEET, and SPOOK/MI-5, and bat-shit crazy mode in KINGDOM. Good stuff.
Aug. 12, 2010, 2:40 a.m. CST
It should run for about 10 years on four or five plots

Really grinds my gears when people reverentially use quotes from historical characters as is they are proof of something. <p> People have a really over-reverential attitude to the founding fathers. They disagreed with each other plenty and said and did things we would now think dumb. Unfortunately they were quite adept at coming up with quotable quotes, which people will happily pick up with no regard for the original context, or the applicability of the original sentiment to the implied current context <p> For a country so vocal in the defence of personal liberty, there are a strangely large number of people with massive boners for dominant leaders. <p> Presumably you want some form of fully pay-as-you go taxation system. At the minute you may be paying for facilities for kids you don't have, parks you don't use, services not aimed at your demographic... <p> And the Jefferson quote isn't anti-tax, it's anti-pointless tax. <p> And the years since his time don't seem to have borne out any correlation between low taxation and levels of happiness. <p>Some of the highest US taxes were in 50s. Some of the lowest in the depression and in recent years. <p>So seems he was wrong.

...or, since this is a Brit show, future-ESA would spend a few bucks for probes to map, study, and conduct surveillance of a planet BEFORE sending in the colonists. That way, you don't end up sticking your human resources on some stinking desert shithole full of ravenous, brain-eating monsters or pissed off aliens with chips on their shoulders. But nooooo....

...just sort of flop on top of Scott Pilgrim, thereby killing him (or turning him into a wide-eyed, mouth-breathing coin)?

hows it interesting?

Is it just me or are the movie trailers on this site and others automatically expanding across the screen when a page loads? Not only that, there doesn't appear to be a way to get them to scroll back down, other than click a few times elsewhere on the screen. If this is a real thing and not just a glitch on my end, I don't like it.
Aug. 13, 2010, 6:49 p.m. CST
Yup, it's happening to me too. It's for that Social Network film about the guy who created Facebook or whatever. It's ANNOYING. I won't see the film just out of spite. And because there's no superheroes in it.

The current healthcare reform was a compromise position derived from Bob Dole's plan and is ostensibly a conservative plan. The Dems have been pulled to the right and you boys are so far off in rightwing extremist-land you don't even recall what being moderate actually is. The Dems (and most Americans) wanted some form of universal healthcare and you guys called it communism so the only way to get anything done now was a mandate meant to drive costs down. A public option would have forced insurance companies to cut their profit margin of their ill-gotten gains as useless middle men bureaucrats (funny how the rightwing is so against useless bureaucracy unless it's in the private sector and turning someone a profit) and actually compete to lower costs. The GOP opposed any antitrust laws and conservatives in the Dem party have played along with not breaking the banks up as well. MAYBE Herc's not a socialist, but a real common sense American and you, chocojeeb are a fascist. I mean seems fair right? You wanna call anyone a socialist who isn't for the 'free market' to provide Christian school takeover, corporate run healthcare that comes between doctors and patients when treatment gets too expensive, a burgeoning military industrial complex and corporate welfare then I feel it is okay for me to call a hypernationalist corporatist a fascist as the term refers to exactly what the GOP has become (no matter what nimrods like that dummy Palin or Billo the clown or drug-addled tubster Rush and weepy Glenn think or actually don't since thinking is a liberal thing).
