    You all know that Hollywood has done the reboot thing on TV as well. Two classic examples are “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea” in which the high-tech sub “Seaview” explored the oceans and solved mysteries and Steven Spielberg’s little revamping of it called “seaQuest DSV” from the ’80’s. Another ’80’s show everybody loves also was on TV in the late ’60’s under another title. “Quantum Leap” was a reimagining of the late ’60’s show “The Time Tunnel” in which our intrepid scientist accidently gets zapped into the past and is leaping through time hoping to get back home. I believe that the first episode of “Time Tunnel” has our main character going on board the Titanic. The main differences in the shows is that the strong military presence in both shows from the ’60’s was nearly gone from their ’80’s counterparts. Before there is a lot of screaming and before Summer pulls her Ninja tools out, take a side by side comparison of both shows and see what I mean.

    Jeff and Briguy,

    We were having some technical issues on the hosting end of things (we managed to nuke a switch in the hosting data center.. WHEE!!)

    Should be resolved at this point so please try again.

    Brian, the MP3 link says “Service Temporarily Unavailable”. I guess the new switch was nuked again? 😉

    I really enjoyed the interview. Trek was on of my first SciFi loves, and kicking it old school for the end of the year was fantastic.

    I really enjoyed Larry’s update on how Star Trek just fell apart with the shut down of Enterprise, and the Viacom merger, as well the status of Star Trek: The Experience. I miss that place. It’s hard to explain how you be in a place you rarely get to see, and feel right at home.
