Is there any hope?

Post by mikey on Wed Jul 03, 2013 9:08 pm

... for upcoming SF on television? V got deep-sixed; Warehouse 13 hasn't quite jumped the shark but is getting very formulaic; Defiance... well, let's just say I watched the pilot and won't go near it again; Continuum is sometimes a moderate distraction but mostly just white noise on TV.

Any thoughts on any of the newer series, or anything promising for the autumn?

Nah. They're supposed to be doing a new one, though. Falling Skies has been pretty good, as far as Sci-Fi on TV. I'm drawing a blank on anything else on right now that's worth a shit. Even Doctor Who has sucked during this last season.

Well, two things that may be promising for the fall: Almost Human, with a seemingly good creative unit though Abrams' last couple of TV ventures sort of shit the bed; and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which isn't technically sci-fi but looks promising (and with a Joss Whedon TV show, there can be little doubt that Nathan Fillion will appear at some point.)

The problem with sci-fi is the cost of production. A network has to be willing to stick with a series and face the cost to start with. Caprice was good but they did a piss poor job on advertising. V, I never knew which nigh they would show it on each month. Same things can be said for Lone Gunmen, Earth 2, the sentinel, space above and beyond, firefly, crusade...

Sci-fi shows never make money right away. They are long term investments.
