    Is this the year that theaters die?

    Back in 2018 over 5000 people backed the campaign to save the Rio Theatre in Vancouver, BC. It's a live theatre and single screen movie theatre, that was built in 1938, and was going to be sold. It would likely have turned into condos like the one I mentioned above, in Toronto. I'll probably...

    Is this the year that theaters die?

    I sure hope that it won't be the case. I also fear that it'll be so. We've already lost the magic of going to a tiny 1, 2. or 3 screen theatre to the megaplexes and now it certainly seems like everything will be moving into the home. I saw "Return of the Jedi" in a beautiful, large, 1920s style...

    Superman & Lois

    That involved more than one show. Have a character from another show appear in a different show an that's fine. Tie things into a show that I'm not watching, because I don't like it (or have given up on it), and that doesn't entice me to watch it again. It puts me off the show that I have been...

    Superman & Lois

    The continual cross-over episodes were why I ended up dropping the Arroverse shows from my viewing list.

    Superman & Lois

    I very much enjoyed the first episode. I'll likely continue to do so, as long as they don't start dragging the other Arrowverse shows into the mix.

    Resident Alien ( Alan Tudyk, syfy channel)

    If you haven't yet seen "Tucker and Dale vs. Evil", you owe it to yourself ;)

    Finally: Babylon 5 REMASTERED and Available for Streaming

    I recently bought the DVDs of the two "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" movies and the full run of the TV series. You can bet your life that they aren't even full DVD quality, let alone UHD BluRay quality, but that didn't stop me from enjoying the hell out of them ;)

    Finally: Babylon 5 REMASTERED and Available for Streaming

    As an aside I had completely forgotten that I had this on one of my RPG shelves, until I saw it while looking for the old WEG Star Wars game books for a friend on Facebook. EDIT Sorry, downsized to something a little more reasonable.

    Resident Alien ( Alan Tudyk, syfy channel)

    I think that this pretty much summarizes the show: "Northern Exposure", except that the doctor they press into service is an alien.

    Mars Rover Perseverance Landing today, 2/18

    Ideally, if we don't find life, or evidence of life on Mars, over the coming decades we become the life on Mars. What is being done now paves the way for that. I don't really think that anyone wants to go to Mars if we can't reliably get stuff to the surface in one piece, for example.

    Resident Alien ( Alan Tudyk, syfy channel)

    It's a SyFy Channel show. In Canada it appears on the CTV SciFi Channel (CTV isn't very imaginitive with their channel branding these days). I've been enjoying it very much and have brought a few friends onboard. For me, the first episode showed the possibilities of the premise. And the first...

    Mars Rover Perseverance Landing today, 2/18

    Their 2020 Fiscal Report and other such documents would be a good source of those numbers. For example in 2020 they list 16,520 employees. https://www.nasa.gov/content/fy-2020-budget-request

    Mars Rover Perseverance Landing today, 2/18

    Space exploration, especially manned space exploration, has yielded many medical advances. It's not wasted money, even in times such as these.

    Mars Rover Perseverance Landing today, 2/18

    The old adage that, "Two people can keep a secret if one of them is dead" is close to being accurate. I was a kid during the original Apollo missions and, despite being Canadian, the whole school would turn out to watch. We watched the first moon landing on a half a dozen TV sets, in the...

    Mars Rover Perseverance Landing today, 2/18

    But.... but.... Star Wars tells us that whole planets only have a single ecosystem! :ROFLMAO:

    Mars Rover Perseverance Landing today, 2/18

    Every subsequent rover had used new tech, been more capable, and has been able to provide more information than has the last. Camera tech has improved greatly in the last couple of decades, they packed in a helicopter drone, and NOW, WITH SOUND!

    Finally: Babylon 5 REMASTERED and Available for Streaming

    While Straczynski has publicly said that there would never be a B5 remake I wonder if he feels the same way about the spin-off, Crusade? It never really got its legs under it, before being axed.

    Guy with a slightly modified CVI as a fifth column style spy to a god-like hybrid who is fully known by one of the "enemy" was a bit jarring.

    Finally: Babylon 5 REMASTERED and Available for Streaming

    I recently worked my way through Andromeda (The Canadian equivalent of SyFy ran it endlessly, for years) and it doesn't hold up very well, especially not the final season. It really feels like "Hercules: The Space Journeys." I actually like Sorbo's over the top style of '80s action 'acting', but...

    Finally: Babylon 5 REMASTERED and Available for Streaming

    Many SciFi series have had the concept of "The old Races" or "The Forerunners", but I think that B5 might have been the only one that had them actively taking part in daily life, albeit from behind a mask. It was one of the things I liked about it from the beginning (kind of figured it out early...
