TV reviews by Rick Norwood
From time to time, a science fiction classic is given the direct to video treatment. The results are usually pitiful. But the only good direct to video adaptation of a SF classic for Rick is the 1992 movie Grand Tour: Disaster in Time, written by David Twohy, based on the story "Vintage Season," by Henry Kuttner and C.L. Moore.

TV reviews by Rick Norwood
Battlestar Galactica seems to have lost some of its momentum this season. It has certainly lost some of its viewers -- less than two million people tune in each week. The good news is that Heroes just keeps getting better and better. Heroes currently has more than 14 million viewers every week.

TV reviews by Rick Norwood
"The pilot for The Flash is so lame and listless that the only way I could sit through it was to rewrite it in my head. In the pilot, we get a full screen shot of thunderclouds, lightening and thunder simultaneous, ominous music. Then a quick cut to the Barry Allen in the lab and the most famous scene in the entire story of The Flash. Lightning hits a shelf of chemicals and spills them all over Barry. Only the way it is presented is deadly dull."

Babylon 5.1: Televison Reviews Babylon 5.1
TV reviews by Rick Norwood
The appeal of Doctor Who is curious -- somehow cheesy special effects are compensated for by the Doctor's cheeky insouciance, and what started out as a low-budget children's programme has become the longest running science fiction television series of all time.
