07:56 am - New SF telly
I am thinking, what SF has there been on the telly this year? The main examples I can think of, new on TV this year, are Doctor Who and Misfits. It's thin pickings for British telly. American SF shows that have been on over here - Walking Dead, Flashforward, the last season of Lost and the remake of V. Oh yes, Heroes just petered out during 2010.

Other people have mentioned Fringe, Eureka and Warehouse 13, none of which I have seen: Warehouse 13 is on one of the freeview channels, but I don't think the other two are?

ETA - Caprica. Heard only bad things. Oh, and the new Stargate with Robert Carlyle - the second season has just started airing I think? I'm surprised I don't hear more about this, but I think Stargate may be a little universe all of itself.

And ETA - The Event. I watched one episode, and despite some slightly camp girl violence it didn't really grab me.

I watched two episodes of Walking dead back to back this week, because of being away. Yes, it's genuinely exciting, and great to see an SF show with proper casting and writing and direction. I still can't get on with the gender politics, but then I am a miserable git.

Big Bang. I just assumed it was pathetically awful until I saw your recent enthusiasm. I thought it was 'Girls are pretty, boys are smart' or something, probably based on the TV trailers.

It kinda starts out that way - but then has smart girls too, and the boys being not smart. It occasionally drops into cliches a little too easily, but is very, very funny when it's on its game.
