I also like sci-fi alot. I am not a “dress-up in Klingon, go to conventions” kind of fan, but I have seen every episode of ST:NG at least five times. I am excited about the rebirth of two sci-fi brands.
Firefly was a short-lived series that ran on Friday nights on Fox. I think they aired 11 episodes before canceling the series. When the show came out on DVD, it sold something like 175,000 copies. I also saw a blurb (TV Guide?) that it is one of the most in-demand disc(s) at Netflix. That got people’s attention and Universal is producing a full-length movie called Serenity. Better yet, they have a blog.
The other property coming back to life is Farscape. I guess they found some money to put the project together and The Sci-Fi Channel bought it. It will be a mini-series will be called Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars. No blog for this one yet.
