It's two parts, second half tonight.  SyFy (yuck) is running the first part just before the second today.  So check your TV schedule.  If it's like Tin Man, they will rerun all 4 hours together sometime in the near future.

Watching it right now, thanks for the heads up. It's...well, okay, so far. But it needs to pick up, if it can stand comparison to Tin Man.

I agree! We have noted and mocked the name change often, on the rare occasions we tune in to watch Eureka or something. Most of the programming on "SyFy" is pretty dreadful, really. We will not going to be watching the latest made-in-Canada creature feature, or Stargate-Anything. We need better original sci-fi programming, and this network (apart from this, and Tin Man, and Eureka) is not providing it.

 


They have had some good shows, I love the original Stargate series as well as Atlantis. BSG was absolutely fantastic! Admittedly most of their programming is dreck though.

Last night I watched 'Alice' on the 'SyFy' channel (why the name change? Silly.) I think it is a two-night mini-series. Has a lot of great actors in it: Kathy Bates, Matt Frewer, Tim Curry, Harry Dean Stanton. It is a re-imagining of 'Alice in Wonderland', with a healthy dose of social commentary thrown in (not unlike the original). The characters are identifiable (Tweedledee and pal, The Dormouse, et al) but not one-for-one recreations.

Anybody else see it? I was impressed with the cast and production. Looking forward to tonight's conclusion.

Yeah, this does look good. reminds me of the "Tin Man" adaptation of "The Wizard of Oz" a couple of years ago.

Pohl is good, but no one is as good as Larry Niven and his 'known space'. I'm always on the lookout for more from him
