Slice of SciFi #91: Voicemail Show

This is the show for our fans and listeners! We’re receiving so much voicemail and email feedback commentary that we can’t even fit all of it into it’s own show anymore. But that’s okay… Keep it coming!

Michael, Joe, Brian and Tim swim through the voicemails this week:

  • Enormous in Australia on Charlie Jade… sort of
  • Gary from Uranus wants the BSG vs Enterprise talk to end. NOW.
  • Chad in Concord lets us know “One Missed Call” is a Japanese remake, too
  • Big and Tasty has a Zombie Channel suggestion
  • Indiana Jim didn’t quite hear what Sam had said…
  • Rapid Eye with potential SciFi Smackdown fodder
  • Rapid Eye tries to chastise Summer, but so he has no idea
  • Big Troy wants to see Spaceship Yamato vs SDF-1
  • Jim from Cape Cod on Charlie Jade, ReGenesis, and The Collector, and superhero movies
  • Alan from UK questions the desire to use Stormtroopers as event security
  • Eric in Sydney loves fast and enthusiastic interview subjects
  • No more BSG vs Enterprise calls!
  • Enormous again on Charlie Jade
  • Woody from WI on his new HD and DVR woes
  • Tim is not impressed with DirecTV’s DVR compression (this is what happens when you have the new Hughes box instead of the old TiVo box. Bad DirecTV.)
  • Rick from Texas is now hooked on BSG because of us. Yay us!
  • Tom in Wake Forest on how the BSG food shortage episode was not filler
  • Sam thinks Kirk would win in a boxing match against anyone from BSG
  • Everything Zombie!!

    OK, so how many beers did you have before you posted the show notes? =-)

    That was me doing the smackdown ON Jason, not him doing it…

    And I’d NEVER dream of chastising the uber-geek-mistress. I just pointed out that she ***SOUNDED*** like she was totally unaffected by Richard Hatch hitting on her. Sounds like there was some visual reactions that didn’t come across in the mp3 =-)

    Another great idea about the new websites and podcasts!!!
    Mike – you need to get RockStar to sponsor you so that you can stay awake for it all!!!

    Alas, m’dear, since I was not there, I didn’t see the notes for the messages Mike ws playing. and you didn’t introduce yourself at the beginning of the message, so…

    And trying to maintain a professional demeanor while blushing is not easy at all. Trust me :)

    Let’s see…what did I actually say? “Jesus is a……” Ahhh, let’s just keep it a mystery except for those who really listen closely and well to my comment on the show. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Charlie Jade – Check out the website at

    The premise looks interesting.

    Supposedly airing on SPACE in Canada. Appears to be a one season wonder, co-produced by CBC and South Afirca’s SABC.

    For the most part, those plane tickets only seem to take you to France, for the French lanugage version. There appears to be hope, as the DVD set was released in Japan about a year ago. Supposedly, there is a English language track as well as Japaneese. Perhaps tickets to fly will be available via Japan. Who knows?
