The Rise and Fall of the System's Commonwealth

 I came across this synopsis a while back which gives a bit of background on Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda.  This was a show that went off the rails after season 2 (IMO), but had great promise.  There was a thirst for sci-fi and syndication back in the day, so two concepts by Roddenberry made it to Tribune entertainment.  Good ideas, but failed to follow through (probably TV exec

TV Recap - 2021 Miscellaneous (Part II)

Some more TV watching... or rather thoughts on TV shows that I caught up on over the past year 📺Brooklyn 99Brooklyn 99 wrapped up this year. It was one of our favorite comedies, but given everything that's been happening in the US the producer's decision to wrap it up made sense.  This final season addresses stuff that happened in the real world, which sees Rosa quit and become a PI, Hitchcock

Assassin's creed Odyssey trailer

Just by luck yesterday YouTube suggested the Ubisoft livestream from E3 (oh internet overlords, you know me so well!), and I tuned in just as the trailer for Assassin's Creed Odyssey came on screen.  I love the trailer, I love that I am able to pick a character, I love that it's going to be set in Greece during the  peloponnesian war, I think I like the Bioware RPGness of the game. There

Cyberpunk 2077 trailer

Seems like some big announcements were made today and yesterday at this year's E3.  I hadn't even seen anything regarding this game in the game press (not that I was paying particular attention) but this game looks likeit could be a lot of fun, wrapped up in an interesting story.

Cobra Kai Returns - wait...what?

Now THIS is interesting. It's both and underdog story, and a redemption story, and potentially a role reversal story, all steeped in heavy vats of nostalgia. When the "youtube red original" logo came on screen I immediately wrote this off, BUT I was hooked and needed to see the rest of the trailer (you know, the car accident rule, you know it's gruesome, but you can't look away).  I am glad I

Vintage Tech - Tapwave Zodiac

Back in 2003 the Tapwave Zodiac, a PalmOS based (entertainment?) device hit the shelves!  My younger self really wanted one of these, since I didn't have (nor did I want to have, at the time) a Gameboy Advance. I was going to write something more extensive about it, but I found an LGR review the other day that gives a rundown of the device.  All things considered it seems like an interesting

Star Wars intergalactic language - where's the school???

A little bit of humor from the feeds today.  This was a Saturday Night Live skit that was cut for time, but it's so awesome.  How do those people far far away understand the bleeps, blops, and ooouuuuuuuaaaaa (my best text impression of Chewbacca)?

Stargate Origins trailer

It seems that prequels are the new rage when it comes to sci-fi on TV.  Here is the most recent trailer for Stargate: Origins (no...nothing to do with the Book of Origin and the Ori). It seems interesting, and hopefully it goes beyond to 10-12 mini episodes (10 minutes each) that it is originally planned to run.  I still want them to do a post Universe show (maybe even go back to the Destiny!)
