Sci-Fi Fest - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
Sci-Fi Fest
There was a lot of kidney damage done towards the latter part of last week. "Quick ones" on the way home to the Softball free beer extravaganza to Jon's leaving drinks... All in all a lot of alcohol was consumed - and a lot of it was nasty bottled lager.

Saturday both Misty and I woke late due to a dual hangover... A quick trip to the shops for breakfast and some supplies then back home to get the house semi tidy for our guest of honour!... who brought pressies!

One of our purchases was collars for the kitties... mainly so that Sam will not be able to bring home presents from her hunts in the garden! We now have 4 cats with bells on in the house. This isn't half as bad as it sounds - it's about twice as bad as it sounds. The kittens are especially noisy now. Best they get used to it early!

One of the pressies Dora brought with her was the Firefly series on DVD. Essentially it's a western, set 100's (1000's?) of years into the future, in space. This concept was a little bizarre to start, but the characters were engaging (and the wimmin darn fine looking), and the stories interesting so after the first couple I was sufficiently hooked to watch the entire series over the weekend. With the exception of said tidying , Doctor Who, and Farscape that's about all I did over the weekend!

Oh - there may have been a couple minutes gardening too... and some ironing *whilst* watching Firefly... and eating - I did some eating... but mostly I watched the 15-some episodes (at about an hour a piece) and it was time well spent.

It was a scifitastic weekend.

I got sucked into that series quickly. A friend of mine (in what I think is an attempt to get into my pants)got us tickets to see the preview of the movie Serenity next week. The release date will not be out till September.

And Speaking of Farscape. I Am now in the middle of the third season, and missing the old opening music, even if it was a bunch of wailing.

Have you been able to watch any of Battle Star Galactica? I watched the entire season in a shot it was so good. I don't think the DVD is out yet but it is worth checking out when it does come out.

Re: Firefly

oooo - I'm quite excited about the movie now... I see that most (all?) the principle characters are being played by the same people.

I might have to drag the missus to go see it...

I think they have just restarted showing Farscape here. They were sneaky and showed it two nights a week for a while so I missed some :( I think I will have to give in and by the DVD's

I haven't watched any of the new Battlestar Galactica (I don't have the right channels anymore) although I spent an embarrising amount of time watching the old ones on the SciFi channel a while back. Perhaps one of the 30+ channels I do have access to will show it eventually!
