SciFi channel

Any one like the SciFi channel I do but not everything, tonight they have a new mini series called Tin Man a take off from the Wizard of Oz cant wait yes it a fairy tale but I love fairy tales.
Another thing Frank Oz wrote many other stories beside the Wizard of Oz I read them all as a child but cant recall much but they were just as spectacular as the one we all know

I enjoy some of the things on that channel. That mini series looked interesting, but we can only record 2 things at the same time on our DVR and our regular programs already took up those time slots. You will have to tell me how it was.

I know the original story was pretty creepy compared to the movie we all love but this just seemed a bit weird. I elected not to watch it and instead watched sappy Christmas stories on Lifetime.

I rather enjoyed Tin Man. Just hope I remember to watch Monday night, too.

Another very interesting... and strange.... movie was HOGSFATHER.

It is, believe it or not, a Christmas movie.... kind of. It is a mini-series, which
i didn't know till I was hooked... 4 hours in one sitting!

My college-aged son sent an email and wants us to record it so I guess I'll end up watching it at some point.

i saw the first hour and really liked it.

there's a lot of names and events that are quickly mentioned which need to be understood to fully enjoy it, as if you'd already read the book, so i'm hoping i can record it at some time in the future to give it a proper viewing.

Shoot, I forgot seeing that advertised when I was watching something else on SciFi. I had the football game on. As I will tonight.
I'm sure they'll rerun it and I will have to watch it then. It looked very interesting.

I like the sci-fi channel sometimes, but last night I was watching Bob Dylan on PBS.

I watched.. and hopefully will watch again tonight. It's really quite weird.

We watch sci-fi channel all the time.

Did you guys catch the new Battlestar that was on last week? It was really good.
Can't wait for the series to come back.
