I hope you all enjoyed your mid-session breaks, and the screening during the break.
This week at SpockSoc: Torchwood season two. Come see the second season of the Doctor Who spinoff. Even if you were disappointed by the first season, come along anyway – it got less stupid by the tenth episode or so, honest. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen the end of the first season – I’ll attempt to give a brief recap before we start.
As usual, we’re on from 5pm in Goldstein G06 – entry is free for members, $2 otherwise. Pizza run during the night.
This week at SpockSoc, we’ll be showing Eureka season three.
For those not familiar with the show, Eureka is a town in America where the government has gathered the country’s best scientists to develop shiny new technology. That said, as ever when lots of scientists get together in American shows, things start to go wrong with very fabric of space/time on a regular basis. Enter Sherrif Jack Carter, the average-joe former federal marshall who got recruited to be the town’s police chief.
It’s quite a funny series, and I suggest you come along, even if you haven’t seen the first two seasons – while there is a bit of a story arc, it should be reasonably easy to pick up.
As ever, we’ll be in Goldstein G06, starting at 5pm. Pizza run during the night. Entry free for members, $2 otherwise.
Due to popular demand following a trial screening of the first episode in week five, this week we’ll be showing a new series called The Middleman.
It’s a sci-fi/comedy series, and possibly the best way I’ve thought of to describe it is what would happen if Captain Jack and Gwen from Torchwood joined the Men in Black.
It stars Matt Keeslar as The Middleman, a real-life comic book hero who thinks Jughead is a hoot, loves a cool refreshing glass of milk, and whose greatest pet peeve is scientists who twist innocent primates with computer-enhanced mind control and live out their sick and perverted fantasies of criminal power.
Also stars Natalie Morales as Wendy Watson, aka Dub Dub, his incredulous wise-cracking sidekick.
