Roundtable Discussion #1: So what is Science Fiction, anyway?

Republibot 3.0's picture

Theoretically, the Republibot website is all about asking questions, and following them through to the answers, whether we like the ones we get or not. Sometimes the questions are big and lofty like “What is the nature of the good?” and sometimes of less abstract value, like “Are The Flintstones a ripoff of The Honeymooners?” Either way, though, the truth will win out in the end. For this reason – and also because it’s really easy to do, and fills up a lot of space quickly – we here at REPUBLIBOT present: The Roundtable!

TV REVIEW: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: “A Disquiet Follows My Soul.” (Season 4, Episode 12)

If last week’s episode was all about the shock of dealing with the death of hope, this week was about the grieving process. There are stages to these things, and I suspect the show is deliberately following them. Next week, presumably, will be about anger. Then acceptance. Bargaining is probably in there somewhere, I’m not much of a twelve-stepper so I’m not sure about it.

TV REVIEW: LOST: "The Lie" (Season 5 episode 2)

Tonight's cavalcade of Lost-related whimsey continues with a super-secret bonus episode that I didn't even know was coming. (I've been distracted lately). What's better than a season premier of Lost? Getting an unexpected bonus episode immediately afterwards! Ka-Ching! If you want to read a review of the season premier, you can do that here http://www.republibot.com/content/tv-review-lost-because-you-left but I'm going to assume you've already done that and just move on here.
