All the SciFi news you need to know
Excellent, quality weekly podcast. The show covers everything a scifi fan needs to know. News, rumors, and occasional review. The show moves along quite well, with excellent production skills.
A middling show.
I want to like this show, but ... ugh.. Every time they start to get interesting, Evo takes over and kills it. Dont mention Buffy, Evos never seen it - so dont mention it! Dont mention X, Y or Z, Evo hasnt seen it, hates it, or is planning to watch it someday and doesnt want to hear "spoilers" - so dont mention it! I dont know.. its just not there, you know? It just seems to me, that this is a science fiction podcast run by people who dont even like sci-fi. Case in point, they constantly refer to SciFi channel as "skiffy". And then talk about how much they hate the channel. Its like nails on a chalkboard at times. Other than BSG, Stargate and Firefly, they seem to hate everything. I just dont get it. Oh, except for the show "Surface" which they loved to trash, until they got some interviews with the cast, now they suddenly love it. Go figure. There are some interesting and enjoyable characters on the show TD the stormtrooper for one, but for the most part I just dont get it. There are much better podcasts out there. On the other hand, its free. So what the heck, download it and decide for yourself. There is actually some good stuff here - but I just ... ugh. Oh well. Decide for yourself, I guess thats what a 3 star rating means :-)
You get what you pay for.
For what it's worth, the show is a relaxed and often entertaining diversion for fans of sci fi tv/movies presented by fans of the genre. Heavily opinionated as most fan run shows are but the hosts are at their best when conducting interviews, allowing the guest enough time to speak while still moving things along. Some concerns about show prep because all the hosts don't seem to be caught up on the different programs being discussed; I think this stifles the freewheeling nature of the discussion. Production values at the level of good student-run college radio. Between 3 and 4 stars in my book. Worth a download for fans of popular sci fi.
