So, What is the Sci Fi Network Doin’ Right, anyway? – Part 2 “The Imports”

This is part 2 of a 3 part series about what’s going on in the Sci Fi Network, what’s working, what isn’t and what’s making me flip to the Game Show Network.

Doctor Who
I am so annoyed, so annoyed.

I am gonna break this down into good and bad for you.
The scripts and story arcs are so very well done!
The cinematography is outstanding.
The special effects can be breathtaking.

2 Doctors in 3 seasons-3 Companions in 3 seasons
Just as I was getting to really like Chris Eccleston, BOOM, he’s gone and replaced with a completely different Doctor as portrayed by David Tennant. Then, just as I was adjusting to the differing relationship between Doctors 9 and 10 with Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) BOOM AGAIN, she is killed and is replaced by Martha Jones ( Freema Agyeman) who I am just getting to like a lot (and you will love in the season endgame spanning 3 episodes) and then, BOOM, she is about to be replaced by……..sigh…….Donna Noble (Catherine Tate)(btw, I already don’t like her, I am mad enough that Rose is gone, so don’t get me started, OK?)

The New Televison Season and Science Fiction Part 1

Todays Installment- TORCHWOOD, The show too hot for America !

If not for this amazing cable channel, we would be missing Hotel Babylon and ,,,,ummmmm…..no…. forget that,,,,, what I meant to say was Torchwood, the show that The X Files should have been, the show that is full of aliens and sex and spaceships and sex and missing persons and sex……lets face it, there is a smoldering undertone of sex……and OH MY GOODNESS is it refreshing!

Run by Capt Jack Harkness, whom I can guess is about 4000 years old or so, Torchwood is the repository for alien artifacts and all things alien, not the least of which are the team members:
