The Summer of Our Discontent, and the Fall Season looks pretty Discontenting too...

This is kind of a bad time to be a geek. T2.5 is dead. Kings is a corpse waiting to be buried. Lucas and Spielberg have proven - repeatedly - that they can’t make a decent SF movie to save their lives, the new Terminator is a big disappointment, and there aren’t even any genre shows on TV at the moment. Even 30 Rock has seemed rather half-hearted with their geekery this season. What am I supposed to do? Read a book? Fat chance! JG Ballard is dead, folks! The last vestiges of the New Wave in the genre died with him.

"Virtuality" premiers tonight!

Just a reminder, everyone, that "Virtuality," the new Ronald D. Moore SF TV Movie, premiers tonight at 8PM on Fox.

I've got mixed feelings about Mr. Moore. On the one hand, he does generally deliver entertaining shows that are sort of cutting edge and unlike anything else in the genre. On the other hand, his stories ramble quite a bit and he fumbles the narative ball more than any other writer/producer I can think of. So on the one hand, there's a lot to like, and on the other there's a lot to be annoyed by. But he's certainly worth checking out.
