Fringe Finale Trailer

The above is a new trailer for Fringe (HT IO9; go here if you haven’t seen the previous one). I am rather sorry that there isn’t the same sort of excitement that there was about the finale of LOST¬†(so much so that my posts about the LOST finale continue to get visits). Not only is [Read More...]

LOST RPG

This is awesome. HT SF Signal. If you are a LOST fan, you will probably laugh out loud, as I did! [Read more...]

We Have To Go Back!

Nikki Stafford, whose wonderful blog became known to many of us during the era of LOST but also focuses on many other shows and topics, created Lostaholics Anonymous a while back. Have any readers of this gone back (as I still hope to do at some point) and rewatched the show from the beginning, knowing [Read More...]

Exploring Our…

In the first meeting of my “Religion and Science” class, I had a slide with a Matrix connection, and I asked whether that was still meaningful. It was, but I wonder how long it will be before “Exploring Our Matrix” only means “Exploring Our Setting/Context” and does not have science fiction overtones as well. If [Read More...]

Dalek Last Supper

I've seen lots of science fiction versions of the Last Supper: LOST, Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars. But this one is new to me. I found it via The Daily Dalek on Facebook, which is also a new discovery for me. Also for Doctor Who fans, IO9 had the latest Doctor Who news, with information (spoilers) [Read More...]

The Apocalypse is Like…

From Tree Lobsters, solidly at the intersection of religion and science fiction.   [Read more...]

Fringe: Visitors from an Amazing Future

Tonight’s episode of FRINGE, “The End of All Things,”¬†provided answers – real, genuine answers – to some of the ongoing mysteries that have been with us since the first season. But let me back up for a moment and recall how we got here. The episode from two weeks ago, “Welcome to Westfield,” seemed to [Read More...]

LOST Valentine? The J. J. Abrams Approach to Romance

At IO9, I found this Bad Robot Valentine, a funny parody of the shows by J. J. Abrams that we know and love: [Read more...]

Torchwood: Reset

This episode seems like the ultimate LOST/Doctor Who/Torchwood crossover. Martha Jones teams up with Torchwood to take on…Charles Widmore (actually, Professor Copley, played by Alan Dale). The similarity would have been there even if the same actor who played Widmore on LOST had not had the role he did in this episode. We still find [Read More...]

Torchwood: Invisible Eugene, Out of Time, and the Soul of Sci-Fi

The ninth episode of the first season of Torchwood, “Invisible Eugene,” is full of poignant double entendres and symbolism. The title itself reflects the life of an individual who, after failing in a math competition, was abandoned by his father and ignored by most people as he followed a trajectory that involved entering into possession [Read More...]

How To Make My Spidey-Scar Sense a Disturbance in the Time Vortex

This has been around for a while, but since Bob Cargill shared it and said that it would tick me off four times over, I figured I had best mention it… In other somewhat related news, Chris Brady and Bob Cargill are working on a project called Sacred Techs. Mason uses Doctor Who to reflect [Read More...]
