Being a Better Geek: Firefly Week 1

Posted on 27 January 2012 by VinnieAve

Every nerd has those things that he or she hasn’t watched or read. Each week on Friday DM and I will be talking episodes of series that one (or both) of us hasn’t seen. He got first pick.

Why Firefly?
I never knew I liked Westerns.  I never knew that I liked the “caper” genre either.  Joss Whedon found a way to introduce those concepts to the horror/fantasy nerd I was.  Even if Firefly had never been made, Joss Whedon would forever be on the map with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spinoff Angel.  I will forever consider Firefly the gem in his crown though.

Where is Terra Nova Going?

Posted on 29 September 2011 by VinnieAve

So this week we had the first episode of the current run of shows that are going to try to replace Lost, a show I never watched but DM did. So I am going in on the ground floor with Terra Nova. I have to say this is is a show that has some promise. As for now I’m going to watch it since the first episode had a lot of promise, this article to about what I think some of those promises are?

1) There will be a revolt within Terra Nova led by Jim Shannon against Commander Taylor when Taylor goes crazy and imposes harsh military conditions on the colony due to minor things going wrong.

2) Josh Shannon or Maddy Shannon going to join the sixers, not as a spy but due to “teen angst,” which there is no shortage of in this show (sadly, I hope this plot gets resolved).

3) The show will completely and utter forget the Jim Shannon is a criminal.

4) Elisabeth Shannon will lead peace negotiations between Terra Nova and The Sixers after a major conflict between the two groups.

5) We find out that this is in out timeline and that the KT event destroyed the probe and hence doesn’t really matter that we were there for 20,000,000 years with the dinos. (this one is a little crazier than my others)

6) A slightly more obvious one: Taylor’s son is in league with Sixers, as some sort of mystical leader who can communicate to the future, also this is what the writings are about. Time travel and time communication.

7) There will be several episodes dealing with resource crises.

8) There will be episodes dealing with the birth of new people into the colony.

9) If the show runs long enough there will be episodes about the generational difference between the pilgrims and those born there.

and 1 thing I hope Josh Shannon gets killed.
