Baseball fans rejoice.  It’s that time of year again. But forget about kriffing corked bats if you really want to fry the stitches of a Rawlings — pick up a lightsaber instead.

Check out this neat little ‘jedi baseball’ vid :

There are aliens in Cardiff?!

Apparently so. Though it took a few episodes till we got into Torchwood it has turned out to be a really neat little show. At first I thought it would be a lame Dr Who spinoff, but Torchwood is anything but. Episode after episode show well plotted and thought out shows that are matched with a fine cast.
Thankfully BBC realizes they’ve got a winner and are set to do the Second season premiere exclusively on BBC Two on 16 January 2008.On BBC America, Series 2 will premiere on January 26, 2008.

I suspect that really keen fans in the US won’t wait the extra two weeks and will find other means to get at the shows. The BBC has gone to extraodinary measures to try and withold information from Americans about Torchwood – in fact the main BBC Torchwood site restricts access and does not show any content if it detects you have an American IP address.

Thankfully YouTube knows no such boundaries..check out the trailer for yourself

**UPDATE**! Thanks to John Campbell Rees for noticing that our original YouTube link had been pulled (guess the BBC is serious about not letting stuff out)..but thanks to John here’s an even better promo from BBC America.

This is the original BBC UK one..

Bender’s Big Score! a 90 minute direct-to-DVD film is now out! Apparently it will be cut up into the first four episodes of the new season in 2008.

Finally after years of reruns…new Futurama…has there ever been a better cartoon SciFi show?

Jetsons? no way. Star Trek animated ..naaaw..Star Wars clone wars (not bad..but Futurama is funny!).

If you’re a SciFi fan and you’ve got a sense of humor…how could you not like Futurama?

Ohhhh and while I STRONGLY recommend buying the whole DVD..here’s a 4 minute taste that takes aim, “at the brainless drones” that cancelled Futurama in the first place. Just brilliant.

Then he crash lands through a window and beats the cylon to death with a steel pipe.

You gotta see this…

“We’re Going The Wrong Way.
-Kara Thrace (Starbuck the Cylon).

Though we’ve got to wait till 2008 for the final season of Battlestar Galactica (season 4), SciFi Network is already teasing us with what it’s all about.

We’ve known all along that like the original Battlestar Galactica – it’s about the quest for Earth. With the re-imagined series its also a quest for the final five cylons and their mysterious link with humanity.

The promo trailer gives us a few hints of what we’re going to see. Starbuck is captured and her Cylon butt is put into the brig. The final five cylons do their non-human thing – like Col Tye pulling a weapon on Admiral Adama.

AWESOME stuff and I can hardly wait for it to start.

Ohhh – for those of you outside of the US – here’s the full Season 4 Promo Trailer. Enjoy!

PlasterWars6 tested the ‘plaster’ of Star Wars rocketry in a way that hasn’t been done before. Model builders tested a scaled X-Wing and a Y-Wing both of which didn’t do better than a 100 ft of lift before the thrust ripped them apart.

Not surprisingly though  an A-Wing type cylindrical model made it a whole lot higher.

GREAT FUN to watch – we’ve got a montage video below – Enjoy!
