Sci-Fi Fridays now on Sunday?

Battlestar Galactica was great..
and ya know? I really enjoyed the Dresden Files.
I’m looking forward to next weeks!!!

Cept I really hate it on Sunday night…

Heroes is on tonight.. hopefully I won’t forget.. it’s gotten good to, when I started watching it and realized it wasn’t a spin off of superman…

I’m ready for LOST.

My son’s ready for the new Doctor Who season.. LOL
sadly, we won’t get it stateside till sometime this summer..

If I had money (and didn’t get a speeding ticket AGAIN last week) I prally would have bought season two..

Which reminds me, I gotta bug Toke so I can get my Season 1 back.. My boy’s been wanting to watch it lately.

It’s been so wonderful having my son living with me!!! :)
Things are good. Financially tight, but good..

 

Em

I'm Me!

  1. Yes and yes… Battlestar Galactica!!! Dresden Files was OK… But I am way ready for Heroes to start again… Lost, I have not been able to get into, I guess I prally missed too many shows. Let me know what you think of Heroes. I noticed they changed the ‘tag line’. Since they found the Cheerleader… LOL.

  2. Heroes was pretty good. I missed the first 10 because I couldn’t convince my son to go to bed 10 minutes early.. *sigh*
    Ah well…
    I think it is cool that Claire is trying to re-befriend.. um, what’s the boy’s name? Zach, yeah, him… and has him video tape her jumping. Again. LOL
    I also loved Hiro’s “Flying Man” comment!! *grin*
    Nikki and Jessica have me very confused. ARE they two different people?

    Anyway.. good show!!!
    You should rent the LOST stuff. It’s great.
    I mean.. a magic island that’s alive. That heals people AND kills people..
    Wild!!!! :)
    I love their play with numbers. And they don’t shove everything in your face, saying Here’s your next clue”, you have to be paying attention or you might miss something.. totally awesome. I hope it doesn’t get cancelled before they complete the story. That would kill me.. but it always seems to happen that way. Same with Heroes.. *sigh* It’s so scarey getting into tv shows with today’s volatile watching community…

    *huggles*

  3. I thought it was pretty good. I think Claire will win him back. Hiro is the bomb… I can’t believe he stole a fake sword!!! Then put it back! LOL… Flying man, yes! “Keep it down..” “Zoom (hand lower)”
    I think Nikki and Jessica are becomming one person. They were two seperate minds, but are melding.

    Not so much volatile, but they do have very short attention spans. Much like our children, most cannot wait from one minute to the next for an ‘answer’…

  4. And so?? Hiro’s father?? Clair’s Mother?? Wow! I want to be able to light my smoke without a lighter!!! LOL

  5. WILD wasn’t it!!!!
    Do you think Claire’s adopted dad is her real dad?
    How the hell is Hiro’s father mixed up in all this? I was thinking it was gonna be Linderman or something…
    Do you think Jessica will kill the shrink? Or maybe the shrink will believe…

    Next week is gonna be AWESOME!!!!

  6. I thought for sure it was going to be Linderman! Especially after Hiro stealing the wrong sword and him finding out Linderman has the real one!
    As for Jessica, I think it’s comming to a critical point. I think she is going to learn to controll her ‘switch’. Dunno, don’t think she is going to kill the Dr.
    Don’t think that’s her real dad, or the Hatian would have told her.
    What do you think??
    Side note: if you ever miss an eppisode (Dresden Files, Heros or Battlestar Galactica) I record them on my Media Center and could send them to you or put them up on one of my websites for you to download! :D

  7. Wow! what a show on monday?? Anyway you can ‘bump’ this so I don’t have to keep going to page 3?? LOL…
    )))hug((( ***kiss***

  8. Sci-Fi Friday, on Sci-Fi Channel / Syfy

    Okay, so… The Sci-Fi Channel launched in 1992, but of course I didn’t have access to cable until I went to college in 1995. And I don’t think my college had Sci-Fi when I started attending, though I soon started hanging out on the channel’s website, which was then scifi.com (“The Dominion”), anyway. I seem to recall seeing ads on TV shortly before going home for Christmas break that year, saying that our cable provider was going to start carrying Sci-Fi in like January of 96, maybe, though I’m not sure about that. Anyway… at some point I started watching the network, though I don’t remember anything specific about it. It was probably even then still kind of random in its scheduling. It was most likely in March of 1999, when Farscape premiered, that the channel started using Friday nights from 8 to 11* as a specific night for airing a block of new shows, as opposed to the countless reruns of shows that had mostly existed before the channel itself existed. (Though the block would sometimes air slightly older shows, as well as new ones.) But I’m afraid I didn’t actually watch Farscape when it premiered; it was some time later that I watched a marathon of the first season, before the second season started. (Or maybe I’d even missed more than one season, I’m not sure. Either way, at some point I got caught up, and then started watching first-run episodes of the series.)

    I also don’t really remember any specific names for blocks, but while I was researching different blocks for this whole section, I saw mention of something called “Sci-Friday,” which didn’t exactly ring any bells, but didn’t exactly not. Anyway, I couldn’t find any info about it. When I “finished” the section, I posted a link to it on a board I frequent, whose owner just happened to suggest I include “Sci-Friday” or “Sci-Fi Friday,” whichever it was. So I set out to do more research, and while my memory got jogged at least vaguely, I still can’t remember little details like when the block started or when it might have ended. Also, I was reminded that before Sci-Fi Friday, there was “Sci-Fi Prime,” and in particular “Friday Prime.” So I’m going to include that era (which most likely coincided with the premiere of Farscape) under the heading of Sci-Fi Friday. As for when the block started to use the latter name, I’m afraid I still couldn’t tell you, but just for the sake of argument, I’m going to toss out “roughly 2002” as my best guess. Meanwhile, I’m going to comb through Inner Mind’s list of past Sci-Fi Channel schedules to see what shows aired on Friday nights starting in 1999, and, uh… I’ll list those shows here.

    *The block may have sometimes included the 7pm hour, or maybe 11pm. I dunno, but I’m just going to concentrate on things that aired at 8, 9, and 10pm. In rare cases I may feel bad about that, but most of the time it doesn’t really bother me. Also note that several of the shows listed here debuted in other timeslots on Sci-Fi Channel prior to moving to Sci-Fi Fridays, and some moved to other timeslots after joining the Friday lineup. And they may or may not have later moved back to Fridays. Yup, believe it or not, a cable channel moved shows around a lot. And some of the things listed here were only part of the Fridays schedule very briefly, while others were part of the lineup for most or all of their runs. So it’s possible I’ve made some mistakes in including (or not including) certain things on this page.
