“It’s Groundhog Day!”

Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cold out there today. It’s cold out there every day; what is this, Miami Beach? Not hardly! And you know you can expect hazardous travel later today with that, you know, that, uh, that blizzard thing. The National Weather Service is calling for a “big blizzard thing!” Yes, they are. But you know, there’s another reason why today is especially exciting. The big question on everybody’s lips, their chapped lips: do ya think Phil is gonna come out and see his shadow? Punxsutawney Phil! That’s right, woodchuck-chuckers, it’s Groundhog Day! And to celebrate, The Sci-Fi Guys give you our SALUTE TO TIME LOOPS!

The Truth Was Down There

I was junk spelunking in the basement, and after nearly THREE DAMN YEARS of fruitless searches, I found it. My X-Files box. All nine seasons and both movies.

If anyone needs me for the next 151 hours and 53 minutes, contact me through unofficial channels. If questioned, I will disavow all knowledge of this communiqué. Somebody’s always paying attention. Someone is always watching.

Trust no one.

The Truth Is Out There

So The X-Files was all about trying to prove the existence of aliens, and Transformers are giant robots that everybody KNOWS are aliens. I’m not getting how this upcoming crossover is supposed to work.

They’re alien robots from the planet Cybertron. They prove alien life exists, at least in robot form. So why would Mulder have such a hard time convincing anyone that aliens could be real?? Also, the cover has The Lone Gunmen on it, and they died before the series ended. So this is not making a ton of sense to me so far.

In Memoriam: Don S. Davis

Don Sinclair Davis, August 4, 1942 – June 29, 2008

Man, this sucks. He was in bad health, which was why his cardiologist told him he needed to leave SG-1, so this isn’t entirely unexpected. But nonetheless it sucks.

You may recall that Sci-Fi Girl and I got to meet Don and talk with him back in Episode 7. You only saw the stuff that we filmed in front of the audience, but he was exactly as warm and friendly when the cameras weren’t rolling. Hours before what you saw on film, I was in the hotel in Chicago scouting out shots, when down the hall I spot Don S. Davis walking my way. He saw that I recognized him, and without my saying a word he walked over and shook my hand and asked me my name. It was like he was there to see me. None of this standing in line and paying for autographs bullshit; he came over to me and thanked me for watching. I’ve never experienced that with a celebrity before nor since. And when I mentioned that my little sister was a big fan, he walked over to her, shook her hand, gave her a big hug and thanked her, too.

What a hell of a guy. I’ve met a few celebrities over the course of my life, and with the possible exception of James Doohan, none of them have come anywhere close to being as friendly, approachable, and personable as the Stargate SG-1 cast. These people are great, and meeting Don S. Davis was like meeting a grandfather I never knew I had. This is a big loss for me personally, and for all the Stargate fans out there. This guy was one in a million.

Mrs. X reviews The X-Files, “The Post-Modern Prometheus”

Hey kids guess who’s back… that’s right, it’s me, Mrs. X, and in honor of Chris Carter’s (the almighty creator of the best show ever on television, period) birthday on Saturday October 13th, I’m going to give you a review of one of my top ten all time favorite X-Files episodes. “Post-Modern Prometheus” has everything you could need for Halloween: monsters, mad scientists, crazy townspeople, and, of course, a very shippy moment with Mulder and Scully.
