Haven't told you guys this yet, but... I like you people. Couldn't ask for much more than a forum with people who have great taste in sci-fi and music. :D

The new members are usually trouble... that sort of thing. I wonder if anyone studies the social psychology of message forums. :D

it's a tricky business, I agree.  and there seems such a dirth of sentience in your average sci fi forum - which is counter intuitive IMHO, but there you are.

the nutjobs here register life signs on my tricorder, so I've stuck around to see how it plays out.  posting crap here and there and waiting for pics of mcmanus, silver fox style, to drop from maya's magic bag of magic stuff :cool:

One of the reasons I don't bother with much of the new sci-fi is that it's a lot of surface gloss with no substance. I'm a big seeker of 'the message' and most of the older sci-fi either had a message or was a commentary on the world.

Give me Wells or Verne any day over some of the stuff that's out there now! Although I admit to being guilty of waiting to see what falls out of Maya's bag of tricks too!:c030a:

He's all yours. I like my Star Trek cheesy and campy complete with salt shaker 'medical' implements, and bad Shatner acting.:xgroupwave2:

I think I can relate to that. I stopped paying for cable, so I'm not really even aware of whats out there anymore (I get my tv fix from Hulu and Netflix pretty much now), but even when I did have cable I didn't watch a whole lot of modern sci-fi. A lot of it is sort of soap opera-y, and that's just not really my thing. I'm a big fan of sci-fi and fantasy stuff that's mind bending or semi-philosophical. Outer Limits, Twilight Zone, The Prisoner, Night Gallery, Star Trek, Twin Peaks, Tales from the Darkside, etc. so naturally I was totally into Lexx. I have to admit that since I've turned off cable and started just streaming Netflix I've started giving some series a second chance. I liked the first seasons of Lost and Heroes for instance. I made myself figure out what all the hoopla was about surrounding Battlestar Galactica finally (the first 2 seasons were pretty cool), and I'm currently catching back up on Farscape which I think is sort of like "what if Lexx sold out to a mainstream audience and was given a decent budget?". So yeah, there's some new stuff I can watch, but I'm on the look out for another Lexx type series.

That's funny, I did the exact same thing, ditching cable. I'm almost through the last season of Farscape on Netflix. I never watched Lost, not sure if I want to start.

I stopped watching TV when I quit the Police department. I average maybe 3 hours per week. I'm much happier watching some older less than popular out there sci-fi flick like Repo Man or THX-1138.

Meh, you're not really missing anything except frustration with each passing season. :D

But yeah, its sort of freeing not being tied to cable, isn't it.

Well, films to me are a different beast altogether. A tv series is an investment in time because you get so caught up in it, but a film is something you can plop down and get through with a bucket of popcorn. My problem with sci-fi film is that I've seen EVERYTHING. I'm literally scraping the B-list bottom of the sci-fi and fantasy bucket on Netflix. My only reprieve comes with the occasional foreign film that finally finds its way here, but even that's getting rare.
