What I Snack on in Movie Theaters
I haven't been to one in years. I'm bedridden and homebound - which makes the perfect Netflix user!
Are you a Netflix employee?
I strongly prefer television since if it is good, it gives me more time to get to know the characters. Personally, the picture chosen is nothing special. It is just the only picture on this harddrive. I love animals, have no children, and recently lost my husband to cancer.

BTW, some of us at the Wormhole are working on a 'portal' that will take members to other related groups on this site
Here is what the link from the Sci-Fi Forum looks like -take a look, I'd love to hear your thoughts or suggestions.
I haven't been on the site for a while and I don't think you ever got an official welcome to The Sci-Fi Forum. (apologies!) But I'm happy to see that the group is thriving and with so many new members. I think it is a good idea to give administrative powers to more than one person (me) -so if any of y'all have ideas or suggestions for the forum or would like to be more involved please let me know.
By the way -I enjoyed your comments :)
Quite honestly I haven't seen Torchwood yet, nor the Sarah Jane Smith episodes. I know they started last season, but I'm working nights from 5pm to 5am and my whole TV watching turned sour. It's a pity, as one of my favorite things was to come in on a Friday night and watch some Dr Who, some PBS, or some Bear Grills, I forget the show, Man vs. Wild. At any rate, i hope the SF channel continue showing them, and I can catch them on DVD ;)
Dear Suzanne-- I have a pretty good memory for things I have seen on tv--even reaching back into my (very) early childhood. I actually remembered a show called the "Brannigan Brothers) about 2 brother private Detectives that must have shown on Channel 5 in Nashville (I don't mention a network 'cause I now know it was syndicated) that must have aired when I was barely 5 years old. For the longest time all I could remember was a little scene where someone called out "Mr. Brannigan" and both men sitting on barstools turned around and said "Which One?"--that's ALL I had for a memory--(and don't ask me why I remembered or cared--all I can say is that I DID remember--and I DID care) but after all these many years of looking at histories of TV (till recently I believed it was a network show--and when I looked at almanacs that listed all the network shows that were ever aired I actually began to doubt my memory of the show as something my mind patched together from disparate sources into something that never existed! (Stranger things have happened with childhood memories that far back). Well--getting into this Retro TV thing (on another page) and the ning related pages Cat started--got me to wondering about the show again --and after doing a google search--lo and behold--I got a print page about a show that was produced independently and only lasted a season called "Brannigan Brothers" (which many believe inspired the successful SIMON and Simon that came about many years later)--why it was even posted--I'm not sure--I've got it saved in "Favorites" and will get back to the website that it originated from soon!
WHEW! LOL! I can only imagine you are thinking--why in creation is this silly man relating this inconsequential story toME--or to ANYONE?
The answer is this--it just goes to prove that a very small memory fragment--if it feels strong and seems to hang on for a long time--CAN prove to be true--even when there is little or nothing to support it or to cross reference it with..... I left a new discussion on the Wormhole Extreme about a TV movie that predated Babylon 5's debut--probably by about a year--or more likely,2. It wasn't EXACTLY like the version we were treated to when the series premiered--but I distinctly remembered that it was a space station--it was a multi layered vessel--and the story centered around how it served as a meeting place and commercial hub for many spacefaring races! I can't say for CERTAIN that it was a "failed pilot" for B-5 that FOX never opted for--but the fragments of that memory leave a feeling that seems so SIMILAR to the general feeling that early B-5 gave me that I have a very strong suspicion that it was a "pilot" either for the series we are now familiar with--or at least, was a definite inspiration for what we actually did end up with in the end. NOW you know why I took you on this LONG journey--because I have so LITTLE to tie the memory to--my story of an even more remote series memory that panned out might explain at least partially why I feel sure that I am right. Also like the other memory--I have NO documetation of the TV movie--other than my remembering--and the documentation on TV movies is so fragmentary--even with the internet--especially when you have no TITLE or names of actors or production staff. My discussion is called the LOST Babylon 5 episode--if you aren't already worn out with my ramblings here--check it out later. I'm hoping that someone who reads it might have some other memories that can help us track the pedigree of this tv movie down! Well--that's the whole magilla--as they say in Hebrew school ! Let me know what you think (either about the movie/pilot and/or if it looks as if I have just plain lost my mind entirely! LOL Arriverderci!
I'm curious as to WHICH Star Trek you referred to--or if you meant all the series in general? Keep in mind that when the Original debuted--that was largely the case for almost all tv except for soaps and some British TV! Star Trek (the original DID make occasional references to events that happened in other episodes--this was a step in the direction that brought us to where we are today! Star Trek DS-9 was particularly good at linking together different episodes to complete a bigger story (especially the war against "the DOMINION"'--and even STNG had successive "Q" stories where references to and lessons learned from past encounters were put to use--in fact "Q" appears in the very First and very LAST episodes of STNG. SO--although B-5 is very much BETTER at this idea--depending on the S. Trek series you are talking about there are varying degrees of uniting themes (the original Star Trek referred to the "ORGANIAN Treaty" that was set between the Klingons and the Federation in a couple of other episodes as I remember....)to be found. You are certainly correct that B-5 and SG-1 certainly went further in using uniting factors from different episodes!
Dear Suzanne--1st of all--regarding threads--they are a good concept--but except for situations where the subject matter is either extremely controversial or extremely uppermost in the national psyche--it has been my experience that after awhile--interest trails off and very few if any people visit them after a week or 2--and if a person has something that they feel strongly about and that they put a lot of work into--sadly may be like the DJ whose transmitter has gone "down"--and is broadcasting to "dead air"! LOL--I was a weekend DJ in college and this happened to me a few times! SO--since I knew that you have a pretty serious interest in SG-1--that's why I sent you a "head's up" message about my thread reply!
Secondly--as for your remark about Babylon 5 'rewinding" after each episode--its obvious that you are in the very EARLY part --ACTUALLY it is a GRAND SAGA--with a VERY DEFINITE thread that starts getting firmer and stronger as each of the 5 seasons progresses! I urge you to keep up your viewing of this series--you will see a definite trend toward "series memory" as you go along! Its a VERY good series--and one of the things I like about it (as a futuristic series) is that the people in it are more realistic in their natures! One humorous way that I compare Star Trek to B-5--is to imagine that a shuttle goes down to a planet and the 2 guys that are on this particular mission find a treasure--if it were S. Trekthe discussion would go like this: "Oh--what an exciting archaeological find! Let's be careful to preserve this properly--it will make a FINE contribution to the STARFLEET Museum!"--NOW, hear the same guys in a B-5 setting--"Hey Duke--Look at the treasure! I bet its worth millions!" "Whaddaya think--do we cut the Captain in--or hide it and come back for it when we can keep it all for ourselves?" LOL!! There are a LOT of facets to B-5 that have as yet to reveal themselves to you yet--but they are many and diverse! Amongst the things that you don't see much of in S. Trek that are much more delved into in B-5:
1. Political machinations and skulduggery
2. Aliens that are not oxygen breathers
3.Mysticism (this occurs in different ways--just one is amongst D'Lenn's people--as well as the Soul Collector's)
4. The station changes commanders in the 2nd season--and he has a really big backstory--that's also when the "threads" start showing up too!
5.At least 5 TV movies were done from this saga--and at the end of the series there is actually an "ending"--although the end of season 4 has a retrospective (originally Stracynski's plan was to have just 4 seasons--the 5th occurred when TNT decided it wanted to have a lot of scifi--a concept they later dumped--so additional plots were added) that was ORIGINALLY to have been the "final episode"--and it is the MOST ORIGINAL I think I have EVER Seen--its hard to express in capsule form--but in VERY brief it occurs a thousand years AFTER the B-5 saga is over and I will just leave the rest to your imagination! Leave it be said--there is a LOT to this series that is not apparent in the 1st season!
Thanks for the welcome--I enjoy your thoughts--I'm planning on a BLOG that I hope will be interesting to all the scifi folks--I'll letcha know more when I've firmed up the concept!! Arriverderci !!
Dear Suzanne--I left a reply on the thread about favorite SG-1 episodes on "wormhole extreme" that I think you might find interesting! I watch SG-Atlantis in syndication (as I did SG-1)--and the syndicated season is always a year behind the SCIFI episodes--the nice part of that (WAS AT LEAST) I got to see SG-1 a year later than if I'd seen it on scifi! LOL! Bye! Hope you are havig a good day!
Dear Suzanne--I am still relatively new to this whole "netflix Community"--But one thing I noticed when perusing past chapters of Name This...--was your remark about SG-1! Since we are also co-members of the ning group--I just wanted to say HI! As well to say that I (somewhat reluctantly) believe that SG-1 may have supplanted Star Trek as the #1 (in quality, anyway) sci-fi show in the history of TV! I hope to talk about other tv matters w/you in the future! Arriverderci!
