Now that Aaron Sorkin has been kicked out of television for being too liberal (and too stoned) the best dramatic television writers all work, or have worked, in the science fiction or fantasy genres: Ronald D. Moore, currently writing for Battlestar Galactica, Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy and Michael J. Straczinski, creator of Babylon 5. Two of the three are writing for comic books.

What's on TV in October? Smallville is the only thing worth watching. Rick wrote individual reviews for each of the six new genre shows of the Fall season, three SF, three fantasy. But he says they really aren't worth that much of your time and attention.

TV reviews by Rick Norwood
In the next two weeks, most of the new Fall season debuts. For the first time in... in... well, actually for the first time ever -- all of the new network shows are about young contemporary Americans. It is as if our entire society was closing in on itself, focused obsessively on the young, the here, and the now.

Totally predictable. Not only is the plot predictable, not only are the characters predictable, even at the level of camera angles and music, it is easy to know exactly what is going to happen next -- pastoral music, tracking shot, close-up, ominous music, overhead shot, close-up. Evidently a lot of people like their SF totally predictable.
