A Big Bundle of Sci-Fi Shorts (3)
I see that Under the Dome is returning to defile the airwaves soon, so I thought it might be nice to highlight some more quality Sci-Fi/Fantasy you could find on the web.

Favorite Post-Apocalyptic Scenario?
Since we are about to go through another new year, lets take a moment to reflect on the cast and crews that no longer work in the world as we know it. And the post-apocalyptic scenarios they have made possible to speculate on.


From Skitters to a seemingly sentient Dome, the alien apocalypse promises to unite mankind - or at the very least, a small community - against a common threat that is not man-made. These post-apocalyptic scenarios take a toll on almost anyone that is not the male lead - or his family - and, unless its Battlestar Galactica, it always has a ...Read more

Philip K. Dick: A Mastermind, But Underrated for Television?
A collaborative post by Syrinx2 and Rolamb.

We must all have heard of 'Blade Runner,' the 1982 American science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott as it often heads lists of best Sci-Fi movies of all time (f.i. IGN list of top 25 SF-movies of all time). And it should.

The film depicts a dystopian Los Angeles in November 2019 in which genetically engineered organic robots called replicants—visually indistinguishable from adult humans—are manufactured by companies like the powerful Tyrell Corporation. Their use on Earth is banned and replicants are exclusively used for dangerous, menial or leisure work on off-world colonies. Replicants who defy the ban and return to Earth are hunted down and "retired" by police special operatives known as "Blade Runners". The plot focuses on a desperate group of recently escaped replicants hiding in Los Angeles and the burnt-out expert Blade Runner, Rick Deckard, who reluctantly ...Read more

State of Syn: a New Sci-Fi Concept?
For me, every new sci-fi series is worth looking at, but in the end there are so few really good sci-fi shows. A lot of them are just pretty standard drama’s where the writers have given the characters just a different environment to play in. Good sci-fi takes advantage of the new environment and plays with it, shows what’s possible and makes us think about it. Although I like shows like Falling Skies, it could have been a warfare series between the US and any invading country (although they would also have called that sci-fi). ‘Revolution’ is in essence the same. So often the writers and producers just can’t think about moving ahead with the great new opportunities but only fixate on how to survive.

I am also a huge Firefly fan (aren't we all?) and I follow a bit what the actors are doing. So ...Read more

A Big Bundle of Sci-Fi Shorts
Last month I posted A Big Bundle of Sci-Fi Films, which also asked which one would make the best TV adaptation, (click here to view it), it turns out the short film R'ha, (by Kaleb Lechowski), is being developed into a film, with Star Wars producer Rick McCallum involved,

And its so nice I'm going to post it again:



How to train your Robot (from Platige Image ) is more of a VFX short, but it is so well done that, and on such a small budget, that it puts similar scenes from the film Real Steel to shame ...Read more

A Big Bundle of Short Sci-Fi Films: Which Would Make the Best TV Adaptation? (POLL)
Helix is bad, not Sharknado bad, but still....bad! But there is still some good sci-fi out there! Which of these short films do you think could be successfully adapted to TV or films?

Warner Bros. has already picked up the rights to Stephan Zlotescu's True Skin and will ...Read more
