SciFi Diner Conversations 20 – Listeners Talk About The Event, SGU, and Outcasts. How do you feel about major actors taking on Superhero roles?

April 7th, 2011 by Scott

Jason, one of our listeners, starts off this listener feedback show with a question that is sure to spark debate: how do you feel about “big named” actors/actresses in SciFi/Superhero movies? We push out the question a little, but are saving our thoughts for the next response show. We hear your thoughts on 17th Precinct, SGU, Fringe, Battle LA, The Event, Wonder Woman’s new outfit, and our Matrix rewatch. We also really want to know what you thought of Sucker Punch if you saw it. The music at the end of the show is from Earthsea.

Scifi Diner Conversations 14 – What Is Your Current Favorite Genre Character? What Does It Mean To Have An Original Show? We Talk About Being Human and Whether iTunes Just Might Be Ripping Us Off.

January 22nd, 2011 by Scott

Scifi Diner Conversations 14 – What Is Your Current Favorite Genre Character? We Talk About Being Human, V, The Final Five Caprica Episodes, The Cape, and Whether iTunes Just Might Be Ripping Us Off.

Carl wrote in and asked “Who are your favorite current genre characters? Your favorite all-time favorite genre characters? What makes a great genre character? Are you more likely to stick with a show because of character or story?” We answer all his questions but are looking for you to throw in your own opinion.

We also talk about the Sanctuary renewal, a bit more about Tron: Legacy, your opinions about the American Being Human premiere, what it means for a show to be an original show, more on the Caprica Final Five Episodes, The Cape, V, Prometheus (what used to be the Alien Prequels), and whether iTunes just might be charging too much for their TV show seasons. We wrap up with Kevin Bachelder convincing us to take a second look at Sucker Punch.
