My Top 6 Sci-Fi Shows

By Geeky Gem

Yes I know what your thinking not another Top 6 of something Geeky Gem likes, well its my blog and if I want to write a top 6 then I shall write a top 6. Any way this top 6 is on a subject we havent really looked at, Sci-Fi. This one of my favourite types of genre to watch.So many good shows out there to watch here I will tell you about six of my favourite shows and maybe give you a video clip or two. As always they are in no real order.

Doctor Who

Well what can I say about Doctor Who, some of you may already know that Kirkiechick and I love this show but Mr Beefnuts doesn’t like it all. This has no impact on our friendship at all.  I’ve been watching this show since I was a kid and its one of this first shows I have real memories about, The Doctor a mysterious man from another world hops in and out of people’s lives trying to hep them as he travels through time in his ship. The Tardis, I so wanted one when I was and I still do, the show may be routed in time travel but at the heart of it all is the Doctor and his friend and deadly enemies.

At the time I started to watch the show the current Doctor was Sylvester McCoy, the Doctor always travels with a companion. I always wanted to go in the Tardis. Oh did I mention that the Doctor doesn’t die so much as he regenerates, here is my favourite regeneration clip.

Battlestar Galactica

If my memory serves me right, I did in fact watch the original series of this show on re-runs of course with my Dad. This incarnation of the show had me glued in every week. Now I have to admit I missed the mini series and in fact the first season, so I was little late to the party. However when I got to the party boy was it a party I was glad I went to. The human race is on the run from the Cylons, robots that have blown up Earth and forced the humans into outer space. What’s left of the human race is ow looking for a new home amongst the stars while the Cylons chase them. A new bread of Cylon comes to life, these Cylons look like the humans and even love like they do. Will the human race find a new home? Below is the opening credits for season 1.

Star Trek: Voyager

I’ve watched every series of Star Trek apart from Enterprise which I just couldn’t get on with. I did try ok, but I just couldn’t which is a great shame really. However Voyager next to Deep Space Nine where my favourites. The reason Voyager made this list and DS9 didnt is because of the ship and the Captain. Janeway was the first female Captain in the shows history to hem a show and come on that ship is cool. The Doctor is hologram how cool is that. Janeway kicked some ass and even took on the Borg Queen in an epic battle at the end of tha last series. Here is a little clip for you, it shows Captain Janeway, Tuvok and B’elanna Torres getting assimilated by the Borg

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

Another show I used to watch with my parents, a show I never missed. I loved this show right from its cheesy sets to its funny little robot named Twiki. It was everything space adventure shows were meant to be. Buck was now trapped in a future where he had now way of getting home, kinda like some of the other shows on this list.  I loved the opening credits and I am posting them below for you to enjoy, if you never saw this show you really must its awesome.


I am aware that the first blog I wrote for All Geek was about Firefly, I couldn’t go with out this on my list the show was great and Joss Wheadon did a fantastic job. It’s a shame the show never took off the way Buffy and Angel did. At least we had it for a little while. Firefly was Cowboys in space and who couldn’t like that. The casts were great and so was the direction the show was going to take. Below is the opening credits as I like the song.

Quantum Leap

Now I know for a fact that Kirkiechick likes this show too, I had never meet any one else who liked this show untill I meet her. I used to have to stay up late n a school night to watch this again with my Dad as my Mum was in work. I loved, Sam would lea from life to life putting things right not always in the right way. There was nearly always a fight and Sam always said “Oh Boy” that’s when you knew it was going to be good. If you never seen this show then you really must, it’s a good one. Here is intro nd opening credits, I dare you (if you have seen it ) not to hm the tune and know the words.

There you have it, just some of my favourite all time Sci-Fi shows, I am sure I can think of more and maybe one day I will bring them to you, but for now I gotta leap out of here.

Wednesday Whimsy: Stuff I Hate: A Quickly Cobbled Together Blog

By @hmsbeefnuts

I’m not going to waffle on for ages writing an intro. This is basically a list of things that make me irrationally angry. Umm, that’s it. I’m not even going to explain why I hate them, I just do. That’s all you need to know really. Obviously these are my opinions, and this is just a bit of fun, so no complaints if I hate something you love. The world would be a boring place if we all liked the same shit right?

Doctor Who. Piss off.

Bill Nighy. Fuck off.

Mrs Brown’s Boys. Cock shit.

Russel Howard. Piss hole.

Richard Hammond. Twat.

Michael McIntyre. FUCK.

Any Orange cinema advert after the first time you have seen it. Fanny flaps.

Mayonnaise. Go away.

Star Trek. I don’t see the attraction.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Die in a dirty lane you horrible bastard.

Sheamus. Boring dick.

Paul Giamatti. Garghghhhhhh.

The Prime Time Playas. Douche bags.

Having to wait until 2015 for Avengers 2. Bollocks.

The fact I can not seem to finish Storm of Swords. I’m an idiot.

The wait until Game of Thrones Season 3. I need me some Khaleesi damn it to hell.

Not being able to write a proper blog entry. Sorry.

Sega Mega Drives and Sonic the Hedgehog. Shit balls.

The fact I typed ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ and ‘dick’ into google image search. What is seen can not be unseen.

Sorry for all the hate, next week, stuff I love.


By @hmsbeefnuts

Hello there, and welcome once again to Wednesday Whimsy. This week, we have a bit of a special blog, special in the fact that it will be mainly about one person, one magical, loud and lets face it, Santa-like person. Brian Blessed is one of the most instantly recognisable British actors out there, as well as being a Great British Eccentric, and thus one of the funniest and most watch-able people in show business. Now I realise that some of you will not have heard of Mr. Blessed, but perhaps you remember one of his roles, as Boss Nass in The Phantom Menace, Robin Hood’s Father in Prince of Thieves, or perhaps most famously, Prince Vultan in Flash Gordon.


Brian is big, loud and beardy, he has a laugh that seemingly comes from the happiest Viking Warlord in the world, and he is quite simply ace. But why have I chosen the great Mr Blessed as a focus for an entire blog? Well, a few days ago I was having a conversation with a friend and regular commentator Greeny, about TV shows and the comedy actor and ‘Man with the best voice in TV’, Matt Berry. During said conversation, Mr. Blessed’s name was brought up, and this blog was first conceived. Now I will explain further below, but basically, I realised that there is far too little Brian Blessed on TV or film, and there needs to be more. It took me about 15 mins to think up 3 projects that would be perfect for Brian, and thus this blog exists. Now if anyone wants to steal these ideas, as long as you cast Brian Blessed in them, I have no problem, but just remember who thought of them OK? Right, explanation over, time for the ideas…


Now you may not know that I hate Doctor Who. Hate it, despise it, don’t want to watch it. I think it is a waste of money, and I can not see what anyone sees in it. Now I realise that I am in the minority, especially around Geek circles. Geeky Gem and Kirkie Chick love The Doctor, and my very good friend Greeny, loves it. These are all reasonable people, and I trust their opinions, so there must be something about Who that I’m just not seeing. However, what if, The Doctor regenerated into some one I like? What if, instead of a freakish looking young man with no eyebrows, The Doctor was an older Gentleman, loud, brash, with a great big bushy beard? What if The Doctor was Brian Blessed?


No I am aware that Brian has been in episodes of Doctor Who, but I don’t care about that, I want Brian to be The Doctor. There are few people who seem to be a perfect fit for a role, but surely, Blessed is the man. The Doctor has always seemed slightly off kilter, and who better than Blessed to bring the crazy? Plus his years in Pantomime will put him in good stead for what is, at heart, a children’s show. Blessed could play The Doctor as a fun old Uncle type character, and is burly enough to stop all the aliens, robots and what have you, that plague time and space week after week. Think about it for 10 seconds, then tell me this idea isn’t genius… see.


Now this is an idea based on the fact that Mr. Blessed is a believer in the Abominable Snowman, as well as being a very charismatic speaker and a strong screen presence. My idea is for Brian to film a series on 90 minute documentaries, for The BBC, on a series of mystery animals/monsters that are reported from around the world. The Yeti, obviously, would be one, but I would like to see Brian’s quest for Bigfoot, lake monsters, mystery big cats etc.


Brian is the exact kind of person to film these kind of shows as he brings his amazing enthusiasm to a subject he is passionate about. Plus a possible Yeti vs Blessed fight would be a spectacle the likes of which would become legend. Brian isn’t a young man, lets make this a reality before he can’t be bothered any more, come on BBC do it.


Now this is the idea that started it all. For those who don’t know, Alan Quartermain is a character invented in 1885 by writer H. Rider Haggard. Most famously in the novel King Solomon’s Mines, Quartermain appeared in numerous prequels and sequels, and is the ultimate Big White Hunter. You may also remember the character from Alan Moore’s excellent Comic The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and the shitty film of the same franchise. Now here is the idea. I propose that The Adventures of Alan Quatermain is a TV series, much in the same vein as The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. Brian Blessed would play an older Quartermain, looking back on a long life of adventure, romance and danger. The TV show, narrated and bookended by Blessed, would star Matt Berry as a young Quartermain.


Berry has one of the greatest voices in TV, and could add a lot of humour to the role. This would be an action adventure show, in the style of 1930’s movie serials, and much in the spirit of Indiana Jones. The show would obviously be based on the works of Haggard, but could be elaborated on, perhaps including other characters, such as Tarzan, etc. Maybe even add a little bit of The Lost World magic, with some stronger fantasy elements. I think it could be great, perfect Saturday night entertainment.


So there you are, another Wednesday draws to a close. Catch you next time.
