I still haven't managed to get out of the house to see Mad Hot Ballroom
. Sorry, JR. The wife wants to wait for video.
Javier Grillo-Marxuach trashes War of the Worlds
so effectively I might not even see it on video now. Oh well.
What I really want to watch is Battlestar Galactica
but the benighted Space Channel isn't re-running it like SF is. Though so much went on in post production on Charlie Jade
that it's practically like watching a new science fiction show. You mean Charlie did
tell Blues the whole truth about the Alphaverse in ep. 15? Damn!

You're the head writer...and you didn't even know about that? Funny!
Another great ep, by the way, Alex. Any word as to whether CJ's a go for season two? I have a friend, South African actor Cliff Simon (System Lord Ba'al on Stargate) who wants me to let his agent know the moment I learn about another season in the works, so he can enquire about auditioning for a role.
Yeah, in the script, all he tells Blues is the temperature at which the ektoskin bugs unfold.
I found WotW to be a pretty good movie. I do find it interesting that Javier Grillo-Marxuach found fault with the ending though...
fail to test their target for deadly microbes? pin their entire plan of conquest on a black-oil virus implanted in corn, distributed by bees? .... not take over the planet at the time of the burial of the war machines, when human beings were mere cavemen?
Well, this is the original ending of the book, and it did hold up pretty well during the 100 years since the book was written. Diseases change and mutate, plus it took several weeks for the aliens to die so it would've been hard for them to test for it a billion years ago. Its also an alegory (is that the right word?) for Britain's (or USA's in this movie) overextention of their power and also their overconfidence.
For the second thing there... Watch the movie! the humans were needed for FERTILIZER! I doubt that there were 6 billion cavemen to accomplish this. :)
@#*$(#&$ END SPOILERS (*^^&%$^$^
It was a good movie with mistakes but in all I enjoyed it.
