Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Sorry, Hirogen Alpha, but I had to get that off my chest, even though I like Battlestar Galactica. The mundanes are wrecking sci-fi TV completely, to the point that if a show like Babylon 5 was sold to TV today, it would be changed from what we love it as to what Battlestar Galactica is. It seems that mundanes think that sci-fi can't be anything unless it looks normal or low-budget (Flash Gordon) or half-fantastic (Bionic Woman and Smallvile). I wish that Joe and Jane Average would just watch the shows and like them for their fantasticness, or stick to the mundane sludge they usually watch, because turning Flash Gordon and the Bionic Woman into the drab crap they are on TV now does nothing for them at all.

Better yet, instead of watching and reading sludge, I'd suggest that they turn the TV off and read some sci-fi, so that they can understand the tecnological world they live in, and to not fear it so much.
