OMG. I just found out about "Sharknado" today, and it was already played last night.
When is it going to be on again?
I've been seeing a lot of references to Sharknado, but I know little to nothing about it. Although the little I've seen of it seems... silly.
Anything involving flying sharks is OK by me.
Just heard a bit of Sharknado on the wireless (CBC from Winnipeg), but switched it off as the premise sounded a bit silly, so I am in the dark as well.
Finally saw a trailer for it.
The only thing it seems to be missing are the full-screen graphics of 'bamm', 'ouchie', 'biff' like the old live-action Batman television series.
There is no way SiFi could play this in a serious fashion. It's completely absurd.
It's a direct-to-tv low budget movie commissioned by SyFy to fill airtime on their channel (I really shouldn't have posted it here, because SyFy doesn't really have anything to do with Science Fiction anymore). Both the premise and the film itself are so outlandishly ridiculous, that it turned into an instant cult classic. The twitterverse went crazy for it.
The basic idea is this: an unprecedented hurricane sweeps the coast due to global warming (this is fiction, remember) and the storm captures thousands of very large, very aggressive, man-eating sharks. When the storm makes landfall in Santa Monica, it spins off a bunch of very large tornadoes, which are now full of these sharks. The rest of the film involves the story of our fearless protagonist defending everyone against these tornadoes which are constantly flinging sharks at everyone. The sharks are flung, of course, directly at people, fully alive and well, with their mouths wide open and ready to eat someone.
It's full of completely plausible scenes, such as this lovely one where our hero grabs a chainsaw just prior to being eaten by a shark, and then cuts himself out.
Like I said ... completely plausible. :) Instant cult classic. It will air again on Thursday. Don't miss it!
Oh, that's right! Even more fitting!

The "New Messages" view in this room is very interesting...
Also, babel fish apparently babbles with fishes when it comes to Russian...ouch
taken old messages from the networked linked BBSes. It went from 2013 messages to 2003 messages.
So, did anybody watch that Firefly t.v. show, or get a copy on vhs :-)
Nah, you just need a strong hatred for network t.v.
So. New Doctor Whos are supposed to be airing soon. That's still considered science fiction, right?
Has anyone read Quartet and Triptych by Matt Hughes? I've been meaning to look for it by the library, but I rarely go anymore because of the timing. The only time available to go to the library is after work/ after school, instead of preparing dinner, and at an hour when the baby (3) likes to spend his time crying.
