Babylon 5 – 20 Years Since The First Season Began!

By SFJunkie | | TV

\r\n\r\nToday 20 years ago on January 26, 1994, Babylon 5 kicked off it’s first season. Almost a year before that, on February 22, 1993, the pilot The Gathering aired and it took almost a full year before Babylon 5‘s first season began. Since about 1987 Creator J.M Straczynski had the Babylon 5 universe in his head.

Current Status of Sci-Fi on TV and on the Big Screen!

By SFJunkie | | Movies, TV

Last few years we weren’t exactly overloaded with sci-fi on tv! Most current “sci-fi” series only have sci-fi elements in them. Few exceptions of course with Doctor Who and Defiance, Falling Skies and perhaps Continuum. Fortunately these four tv shows are doing rather well so the next year we get new seasons for all three. Haven, some say it’s just supernatural, some say it does have sci-fi elements, in any case, it had a good run till now and although not (yet) renewed for season five, the fourth season is as steady as the other seasons. Warehouse 13 of course also has a strong relation to sci-fi but season five will …
