SciFi Fight Club: Buck Rogers VS Flash Gordon

Its been awhile since I watched either of these shows. Who would win?

Buck Rogers had cleaner technology but Flash Gordon always seemed to win in the end.
Plus, Buck had to deal with Tweekie “beady,beady,beady” which puts him at a disadvantage.

I usually try to cast my choice immediately but this one is difficult for me.
Buck relies on technology where Flash relies on ingenuity.

For the sake of fairness – Flash…

Last night's episode ended with a Star Trek parody in the last coupe minutes and then the ending credits were brilliant- it played the music at the ending of classic Star Trek (the Original Series) and the still pictures were a mix of Original Trek and some newer ones as well-

TV Shows We Should Be Getting

As you all know I am totally fed up with the slop that is presented by the Entertainment Industry.

I firmly believe Science Fiction Television should create a sense of Awe and Wonder. Science Fiction story arcs in television series should drive us to explore and discover new things. It should instill forward thinking and a resolve to reach new heights in science and philosophy.

In today's world of social networking and 'live for the moment' philosophies our achievements are based on…

Westworld TV Series (2015)
