Babylon 5 – 20 Years Since The First Season Began!

By SFJunkie | | TV

\r\n\r\nToday 20 years ago on January 26, 1994, Babylon 5 kicked off it’s first season. Almost a year before that, on February 22, 1993, the pilot The Gathering aired and it took almost a full year before Babylon 5‘s first season began. Since about 1987 Creator J.M Straczynski had the Babylon 5 universe in his head. Five or six years before anybody heard of a Narn, a Minbari or a Centauri, they were already alive in Straczynski’s mind. He and Douglas Netter tried to sell it to various networks/companies but nobody seemed interested. At the time there was not a lot of sci-fi on TV, only Star …

Fact: From 1987 Untill 2011, Each Season, There Always Was a Sci-Fi Series Set in Space!

By SFJunkie | | TV

It’s almost unbelievable but since the year Star Trek: The Next Generation began in 1987 we were blessed with 24 seasons in a row of sci-fi set in space! Stargate Universe, which was cancelled in 2011, was the last one. As I said it began with TNG which ran till 1994. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine began it’s first season in 1993 and Babylon 5 had it’s pilot in 1993 and started in 1994 with it’s first season. Both series ended towards the millennium. Space Precinct started in 1994 and ran only one season. In 1995 Star Trek: Voyager began and in 1997 Stargate SG-1 started it’s first season. In between there of course also was Space: Above …

Current Status of Sci-Fi on TV and on the Big Screen!

By SFJunkie | | Movies, TV

Last few years we weren’t exactly overloaded with sci-fi on tv! Most current “sci-fi” series only have sci-fi elements in them. Few exceptions of course with Doctor Who and Defiance, Falling Skies and perhaps Continuum. Fortunately these four tv shows are doing rather well so the next year we get new seasons for all three. Haven, some say it’s just supernatural, some say it does have sci-fi elements, in any case, it had a good run till now and although not (yet) renewed for season five, the fourth season is as steady as the other seasons. Warehouse 13 of course also has a strong relation to sci-fi but season five will …

Custom Made Doctor Who Lightbox Poster

By Kode | | Tutorials, TV

After seeing some awesome looking DIY lightbox posters over on avsforum I decided to make something similar, the information on avsforum is mostly from people from the US so hopefully this will help some people in the UK on where to source materials.\r\n\r\nI didn’t go for a full poster size one as that would have required 3 x 5M LED strips and was bigger than I wanted to make it, so instead I based my size around using a single strip and ended up deciding on making my image 1100mm x 230mm.\r\n\r\n \r\n The Doctor Who Image \r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWe are both fans of …

\r\n\r\nAnger Managment – S01E01-02\r\nLet me start out by saying I have not watched Two and a Half Men so this is really my first exposure to Charlie. I think the first episode was good and showed that Charlie could be humanized. It was a fairly amusing episode, the second episode was more what I was expecting (not a good thing in this case), and Charlie is being more of “himself” in this episode. I was hoping that his ex-wife Jennifer and patient Lacey would even out, unfortunately they did not. I really hope they work on those characters; their acting …

Skin Showcase: Aeon MQ3

By Riddles81 | | Movies, Music, Skin Showcase, TV

There’s an age old saying that goes something like “The best things in life are free”. Rarely does this actually come to fruition and we are often left saying things like “The love of my wife… that’s free” or something equally gooey and feel good! Let’s be honest though, I think we all know there’s nothing free about having a significant other around the house.  ;)\r\n\r\nEnter XBMC stage right and I’m finally happy to say that for once it really is free!\r\n\r\nEarly on XBMC could be a little buggy and certainly wasn’t the beautiful work of art it has become …
