When I was a kid I loved Blake's 7. But I saw an episode more recently & I wasn't really feeling it. Now I enjoy Firefly - sure they're all a bit handsome, but so what? I like looking :P

My nostalgia filter must be working better than yours.

Well, at least when I derail a thread, it is done spectacularly.

To save starting a new thread for Fringe, I'll post this here!!

When it was announced Fringe would be moving to Friday nights, fans feared the worst, while the producers of the show tried to spin the news in their favor, calling it a GOOD thing.

But as the title the creators gave the series' first Friday night episode shows, they're well aware of why that night of the week has become known as the place TV goes to die.

The title—which was revealed at the same time it was announced that the show would start airing Friday nights on Jan. 21, one week earlier than we were told previously—will be ...

(Get ready for it.)

... "Firefly."

(Get it?)

Firefly is but one of many series supposedly deep-sixed by the cursed Friday night "death slot," and the fact the writers gave a nod to one of the previous scheduling victims shows they recognize the challenge they're in for.

There doesn't seem to be any other Firefly homage in the episode—which has Christopher Lloyd guest-starring as one of Walter Bishop's musical heroes—but you know we'll be watching to make sure!

(HitFix)



Anyone else watch Fringe? It's abso-bloomin-lootly brilliant!

Actually, this one's better. An affectionate parody to the tune of Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.

EDIT: I'll stop derailing the thread now, guys. But when I derail a thread, it's done in bullet-time to the strains of the Advent Children version of One-Winged Angel.

Genius, but ever so slightly cringe-worthy as there are so few of them.

The first 30 seconds or so made me so very happy but the more it went on the more second-hand embarrassment I got :( Excellent hats though

You didn't see him as a UNIT soldier in Doctor Who and the Silurians. Or don't you like a man in uniform? :)

With Jon Pertwee or David Tennant? Must have been Jon if it's UNIT I suppose - he must have been a 'red shirt' in that? so I missed him and UNIT's uniform doesn't float my boat. :lol:
