    Jailbait.

    That second in command chick was hotter.

    Those aliens might have been paralyzed by Min Mei's singing but they were the only alien race to do a proper earth bombardment with nukes...

      No need for nukes, just get the projectiles going fast enough and KE will do the job for you, with no nasty radiation leftovers.
      I enjoy being wrong too much to change my mind.

        Yup, like the Gamelons did.

            What are peoples thoughts on both "Falling Skies" and "Terra Nova" I have managed to catch a few episodes of both and though both seemed decent.

              I liked Falling Skies....haven't watched Terra Nova...up against too much sports.

                I've seen every Terra Nova program so far - it's a very interesting concept but too much family-oriented.

                      • yeah, it is not as deep nor dark as the reimagined. Then again, the reimagined did get carried away, especially during the last season.

                        Blood and Chrome is fun, is brainless, it is topgun in space!

                          Gotta agree that the reimagined one went off the rails after season 2.
                          But i did not much like top gun and so could not stomach the nonsense toe to toe gunfights in space.

                          I would much prefer someone showing space actions like those depicted by Ian Douglas in his books.

                            Since I started this thread, I did watch the entire Battlestar Galactica remake, and I did enjoy it thoroughly. It had some weird spots... they never did explain just why a cylon-human hybrid was so critical. But overall, I thought it was a lot of fun. One thing it did have which I thought was good, and that was, no aerodynamics in space. Craft could flip end for end or jink sideways.

                            Falling skies - I'm liking it. The cliffhanger from last season was brilliant. New aliens; here to help, or harm? I'm thinking they are there to help the human race, given the implications of the gigantic weapon the bad aliens had created pointing skyward, when humanity no longer had an air or space threat.

                            Currently watching Star Trek DS-9. It's OK, weak writing in season 1 hurt it, but it's getting better.

                            Tera Nova - great premise, terrible execution. The story-line should be on survival, not some father-son feud.

                            • Last night I had a dream that I was cast in the new Star Wars movie as an Ewok bounty hunter with a checkered past. I got to kill Jar Jar and then blame it on that whiny little bitch, Wicket. I got to kill him too. It was awesome.

                              • Whenever I think of Ewoks, I think of a fully modern Armored Division with body armor and modern weapons, vs the Sioux or Cheyenne.

                                And the Native Americans win decisively.
