The Return of Blake’s 7!

Well, I’m all kinds of excited. One of my favorite TV shows ever, Blake’s 7, has garnered interest in a remake for years, but now it’s starting to look like the ScyFy channel has made a firm commitment to Freemantle Media International to produce  “a revolutionary reinvention of the long-running BBC series.” The show will […]

At the time, my youngest boy was studying this in school and had become quite obsessed with the story, requiring multiple […]

The timing was perfect for a good old-fashioned disaster movie and we selected ‘The Day After Tomorrow,’ which I really enjoyed the […]

Even so, there are a few things I am impatiently awaiting. 1.  The Teleporter: It’s amazingly difficult to get my kids off to school on the bus every morning. One refuses to wear winter gear even in the […]
