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

PKD - Electric Dreams: The Father Thing
The ultimate season finale!
This turned out to be an epic moment of television! A Stranger Things meets E.T. inside the head of Philip K. Dick. Imagine an all-American Apple-Pie setting, getting an encounter of the third degree.








Not much bad can be said about this one. I really liked it.

Waiting for Edgers
From script-writer Darren Tomalin comes Edgers (2016).

In short
2060, ten years after a catastrophic environmental disaster that has left a scorched Earth, a group of mismatched mercenaries, "Edgers", try to carve a living through any means they can while avoiding the government, corporations, gangs, any number of enemies... and each other. The team embark on, what should be a simple data extraction but are there ulterior motives at play?

Background
In 2060, a development in nano-technology lead to a method of healing the Earth's atmosphere called “Project Eden”.

But Project Eden malfunctioned and killed off or mutated most of the Earth's eco-system before it could be cut off, ending billions of lives and wiping out half of the Earth's hospitable areas.

This event became known to the survivors as “The Cataclysm”.
It is now ten years later, and the survivors are still trying to rebuild. For ...Read more
