I have been LOVING Game of Thrones, a bit like medieval porn at times but awesome characters and story line. The only down side is all my favorite characters keep getting killed off :'(

I love a bit of sci fi me.

Faves include -

Fringe, Being Human (not the latest series), Falling skies, Continuum. Fringe being easily the best.

The Returned looks good, but French subtitles I understand  :'(

Defiance is not bad, but too many humanoid aliens.

I know this is a film, not a tV series, but saw it last night on Virgin 'Buy it', very good. The idea has been seen before, but the film is well put together - Moon

Doctor Who, not really sci-fi. Not sure what it is, except bollocks maybe, as you say. :D

Well that beats me, lmao. I can't speak any Klingon apart from one or two usual phrases :D

DS9 was really good after they got the defiant and them big battles towards the end. I thought Voyager was ace, although I would have liked to see a movie after they made it home.

Torchwood is not like Dr Who...might be written by the same peeps...but I'm not a fan of DR Who....Dont diss da Torchwood  :P

I like star trek the next generation and Voyager... but seen most of them ...I might start watching them from the beginning again....Anyone notice Wesley Crusher is in Eureka and Kathryn Janeway is in Ware House 13?  ;D

P.S Stewrat I'm impressed  :P

Qapla Fiona  :P

I am learning to count to 10 in as many languages as possible. Currently Ok in French, German, Klingon, Japanese and Italian.
Working on Maori, after that Ferrengi. Given up on English.

Jim, if those battles involved the jem'hadar and that nasty female shape shifter then I thought those were gooduns. I have seen Kathryn Janeway in Warehouse 13.

The 'prequel' Star Trek was a grower as well. Dr Flox (I think) has been in loads of films and stuff.

Yes those ones and the Klingon battles were good too.

Enterprise bombed for me (and lots of other people) but after it got cancelled I really started to like it. It's a shame they cancelled it.

The music turned me off right before watching any of it. It's hardly a trek opening sequence, although as the years have gone by, I've come to appreciate why they used it.

I can go up to a hundred in German and 10 in French, lol.

Sci-fi fan myself, also like some of the cult sci-fi films of the 50s like 'Forbidden Planet' & This Island Earth'.  Some of the remakes have been pretty good as well like 'War of the Worlds' & 'The Day the Earth Stood Still'.  I loved the tv series 'outcasts', shame the BBC would not do a second series, I was gutted.

Well done on the German, Can do up to 98 in French, so close  :P

I agree about the music for Enterprise, it did put one off a tad.

This is really sad. Was watching an episode of Next Generation and the Doctor (not Beverly Crusher, the other one) picked up some nasty aging bug and the crew were at somewhat of a loss as to how to deal with the situation. I was thinking to myself, maybe they could use the transporter records to compare previous molecular records with her current state and filter out the bad bits. Half an hour later, one of the crew suggested the same thing!

Turned out that she had never used the transporter but they found some hair with a root attached and used the transporter as a filter.

I need to get out more  ???

I loved the day the earth stood still, the Reeves one, never saw the first.

Didn't like war of the worlds, never saw the first one of that either. Didn't like the sound them squid things made, lol.

I loved the King of Queens, I know it's a comedy series but still worth a mention. Looks like Kevin James wanted to leave that and go on to movies. Mall cop wasn't bad, but chuck and larry and his other offerings were a tad crap, lol. He would probably have been better sticking to the sitcom.

Avatar was a really good movie too. Think I read somewhere that they are going to be bringing out a second movie.

Forbidden Planet, that was an excellent film 'The Monster from the Id' if I remember correctly. Leslie Nielson was in it. Have they remade it? If not, they should.

Outcasts was good, sad that there is not another series.

The 50s version of War of the Worlds is so dated in a funny way that it is worth watching, but was a great movie for its day.  They leading actors from it have cameo roles in the new version which was pretty good as well.

Yes Stewrat, It was a very young Leslie Nielson in Forbidden Planet. The story was apparently based on Shakespeare's 'Tempest'!  Defo the best sci-fi film of the 50s, considering they didnt have any special effects like today. It's not been re-made, shame, it would be interesting to see how Hollywood would do it today.

I loved the day the earth stood still, the Reeves one, never saw the first.

The first one is as good as the second, some might say better if you allow for the fact is was made donkeys years ago, might have been in black and white.

Another good old film is the original of 'The Thing'. Around 1950 something I think.

There must be loads of Star Trek fans who come up with solutions. I remember another one in Voyager when they were communicating with a Romulan through a degrading wormhole. I thought that they would have to transport something through that wormhole if they are going to get anywhere. It took Janeway 25 minutes to come up with the same idea!

Deffo should be re-made. Group buy?

Film-wise im more a thriller fan with a touch of the paranormal. I liked The Others, Sixth Sense and Se7en. Also, The Bone Collector, Kill Bill 1&2, and the classic that is Pulp Fiction.

I forgot the superman movies, best of all imo. Thought they made a good choice in Brandon, but this new actor was promised a shot at the prize or was favoured by some before Routh by the looks of it. There was a court case a bit back about the rights for superman. Can't remember how it worked out in the end but it was about superman flying or jumping iirc. Hope this new film is good and he isn't just a jumper, although looking at a few trailers, he does appear to jump rather than fly. Hope I am wrong.

I watched most of my horror movies before the age of ten. Probably why I can't stomach them now. I used to sleep at my grandparents house on occasion and on a night they used to put these movies on. They weren't bad people or anything, loved em to bits. Just guess they were old school and didn't think it would scare a boy, lol.

I watched IT, Salems Lot, some movie where this bird got buried alive and was screaming her head off whilst scratching at the coffin lid and a movie I am reliably informed was called changeling (amongst others ofcourse, but we haven't got all night). Was changeling the one where there is this ghost child who had lost his medal and beneath a real child's floorboards was a well?

My medal! My medal!

Bloody hell, that was a bad one.

..and that Salems lot one where that kid is scratching at the window.

I honestly don't get the attraction in being afraid. I just don't get it.

I missed Firefly  :( but saw the film Serenity, which was excellent. Seemed to be a full length feature of Firefly from what I saw.

Dark Star - another Goodun, seem to remember one of the crew trying to convince a bomb not to explode. Will have to see it again.

I remember watching 'Twelve Monkeys' years ago with my daughter who was about 14 or so at the time. At the end of the film I said 'Don't play about with time travel, that's what can happen'.

She's a primary school teacher now, and one of her 5 year old pupils mentioned something about going into the future. My daughter replied 'Stop right there! If there's one thing I've learnt it's that you don't mess with time travel.'

I never realised how important that bit of advice, all those years ago, would become.

I would have been about 8 or 9 then....those were they days...making camps and go-carts (with no breaks) and playing down the dump...and the dump in those days had cool stuff like old prams (Wheels for go-carts) hehehe And rusty old barrels we would get in and roll down the hill...but we had to keep our eyes and mouth shut in case they got rust in them  :P

Sorry, just had a childhood  flash back  ;D

We used to have a dump near where we lived. Great during school holidays, before the days of health and safety. The posh go carts used to have foot steering technology (a bit of wood with a bolt through it and a length of rope). The non-posh ones used to crash a lot  :P

We had foot steering......Our plimsolls would get filthy as the 'road' we used was really just a dirt track on a hill...And we used our feet to slow down or try to slow down lol ...I'm surprised none of use got injured or worse coz the track went straight out onto a main road.....But like you say those were the days when health and safety for us wasnt invented lol

Continuum is very well done.  Time-travelling cop (who's a bit of a hottie) with some nicely scripted grey areas about right/wrong when talking about big corporations.  Really picks up in season 2.  Not sure if any channels over here show it though.

Battlestar Galactica is a default sci-fi recommendation along with the previously mentioned Firefly.  Can't go wrong with a bit of (and by a bit of I mean the entire) Babylon 5 too.  Farscape if you like muppets and regularly self-medicate.

Most of us are probably old enough to remember Blakes 7 and it is still a surprisingly good re-watch if you can blur out the special effects and Milton Keynes.

For books I would recommend Enders Game (author is a dick but the story is great) but if you want high fantasy any Jack Reacher novel is pure escapism  :P

I remember watching 'Twelve Monkeys' years ago with my daughter who was about 14 or so at the time. At the end of the film I said 'Don't play about with time travel, that's what can happen'.

She's a primary school teacher now, and one of her 5 year old pupils mentioned something about going into the future. My daughter replied 'Stop right there! If there's one thing I've learnt it's that you don't mess with time travel.'

I never realised how important that bit of advice, all those years ago, would become.

Scary thing is its perfectly reasonable that time travel will become a reality one day. Only forwards though apparently. It's really interesting reading.


Time travel my arse!

Nope, it's theoretically possible, but only going forward. We don't have the tech to do it yet but the science is already there.

It is difficult to prove such devices and I have spent my whole life trying.  I invented one and called it a "B.E.D.D.",  which stands for "Brevis Ecquando Detego Detectum" (my latin translation of "briefly appearing at anytime while laying bare").   I made my B.E.D.D. and lay in it to see what would happen.  I thought it was faulty because it didn't seem to work but then suddenly I found myself in a strange land, with spaceships and aliens and stuff.  I have repeated this experiment several times,  but I am still working on it because as of yet my B.E.D.D. seems unable to take me back to the same time as I left.  It always seems to put me back to a few hours after I first entered the B.E.D.D. , it is screwing around with my sleep patterns too and I seem restless and unable to get to sleep after using it,  this effect is only temporary but it does last for the best part of a day.

I think Continuum on the Sci Fi channel. It's on one of the channels I get with Virgin.

Babylon5 - That was excellent. I even taped the whole lot - 5 series I think.

Farscape - Used to call it 'Crapscape'

Time Travel - Tricky.

It depends how you view time. If we are at the 'Front' of the line, i.e. our 'present' is the 'real present' then time travel to the future shouldn't be possible because it's course hasn't been determined yet. Unless you can travel forward in time to one of infinite possible futures. Can't see it though.

Travelling backwards in time could just be a matter of how fast you travel. If you are travelling at 100 mph it will take 1 hour to travel 100 miles. If you travel twice as fast, you get there in half the time (unless you use the M25). So if you travel fast enough you might be able to get to a particular point before you left.

I don't think this would work , based on my O level maths knowledge.

The only way to do it would be via a wornhole, or maybe bending space (like they did in Event Horizon, although it wasn't used for time travel in that film, or was it???)

This is the very reason I told my daughter not to mess with time travel!

Time travel could be a dimensional thing. We all understand 2 and 3 dimensional concepts, and the 4th dimension is just the 3rd dimension stretched out in slivers of time like a loaf of sliced bread. If you were to view a person's life in the 4th dimension you would start at birth and it would be a stretched out in a seamless smear till death and if you cut out a slice you would see a still shot of that moment in time. String theory states there has to be 11 dimensions so if we could jump to the 5th dimension and were able to process that experience we might be able to view the 4th dimension and see all of time from start to finish and jump in at any point we chose. In the 4th dimension  the theory of relativity has sown we can move forward in time at different rates depending upon speed, and then there are worm holes which may be able to all us to jump not only in space but possibly time ???  Thinking about it all makes my head hurt :P

My brain is now hurting too, and I think the dimensional approach would be more successful than my comment about simply going very fast.

The thing about wormholes is that naturally occurring ones seem a bit random. You could end up anywhere / anytime. Maybe the work being done with the Hadron Collider will help created targetted wormholes.

Just found this link - will have to give it a read -

Interesting thing about quantum physics and the experiments they are doing now is that by just observing the particles changes the outcome. If you look away one thing happens - if you look another thing happens ??? There is so much that is beyond our grasp yet when you look at how far we have come in the last 100 years it would appear that nothing is impossible. Just imagine what we will understand and be capable of in another 100 years ..... that is if we survive that long !

 the first series was quite good. its a bit out there in weird and wackyness, got some mad british humour but it also has some good old philosophy thrown in, so it gives the charactors a sence of normality while all the madness is going on, i liked it but ya tend to laugh at some things but kinda no a joke is going on and not laugh but u can see why its funny to other people.

Never really been a Dr Who fan  :(

Not seen Revolution. Just watched a trailer and it looks good! Will have to keep an eye out.

Started watching Babylon 5 again. It does look a bit dated but getting back into it  :D

Fringe was my fave. Watched all episodes from all seasons (7 I think).

Must be a pain to work out what's gping on unless you've seen it from the start.  ???

Hey, We just got back from watching Ender's Game.  Well done and from what I remember from the original book just as good or better.
