Sci-Fi Shows The Weirdest Stuff

Sat down on the couch tonight to write up today’s hike, but with a bit of a headache going, everything I wrote was, well, bloody awful.

So instead I’m bombing out on Tin Man on Sci-Fi, as it’s pretty much the only original programming anywhere on the tube tonight.

(Don’t go to Sci-Fi’s own Tin Man website; I got a pop-up from my anti-virus about some adaware there.  Ugh.)

It’s pretty standard Sci-Fi stuff: weird, cheesy, odd, a plot that only marginally makes sense, I’m-not-quite-sure-who-thought-this-was-a-good-idea kind of stuff. Which is kind of what I was expected.

Actually, the only real difference between Tin Man and Sci Fi’s usual Saturday night fluff the slightly more A-List cast: Zooey Deschaniel, Alan Cumming and Richard Dreyfuss slumming for a paycheck (and apparently having some fun, too).

I’m not complaining, though; it’s perfect check-your-brain at the door stuff on a Sunday night. And if you’ll all pardon me for being a guy for just a moment: geez, Zooey Deschaniel’s got the prettiest eyes. 🙂



  1. I PVRed it just in case. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to watch it. It seemed a little cheesy but I recorded it anyway. I was going to check out the reviews before I watched or erased it. What do yu think? Is it worth watching?

  2. She has a beautiful voice too.
    See Elf for reference.

  3. I prefer science fiction novels instead of movies. But I guess I am still stuck with “Blade Runner”.

  4. Homer-Dog – Given what’s on the tube now, it’s not too bad. The production design is good, the script is okay. It is three parts long, so at least on PVR you’ll be able to skip all the ads!

    just a girl – Oh, yeah. I was surprised how much I liked that film.

    Gany – Blade Runner was a fantastic film, hard to beat…
