SY FY Needs a Sequel to Taken Miniseries
Posted 09 December 2010 - 04:12 AM
Face it people, the SY FY channel seriously needs better material. The problem is the expense. Quite possibly only a movie production could afford it. I would LOVE another 20 hour series, but I would certainly go see the movie.

Since Syfy is a distributor, it does not benefit from DVD sales.
...and sales of DVD's would make big money for decades.

So would you settle for Dakota Fanning's sister in Steven Spielberg's executive produced Super 8? Or Steven Spielberg's executive produced Cowboys and Aliens? Or Steven Spielberg produced Falling Skies? Or Leslie Bohem scripted The Darkest Hour? And this is some of the good? stuff. Skyline and Battlefield are preemptive raindrops from the downpour.
Don't blame the messenger. This is the next overexposed genre the creative brains behind Taken have moved on to, joining many others. For some reason, Hollywood wants humans to fight back harder! War of the Worlds was just too one sided. Killing them with the common cold is boring. Nukes are better. Maybe precisely because of all those years of helpless victimized abductions. Give me a bazooka. This one is for Betty and Barney Hill.
fwiw I liked Taken too.
There were voices down the corridor,
I thought I heard them say,

(Spielberg's joke, not mine.)
"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God." (Matthew 5:9)
Let's declare 2015 as the Year We Move On.
