Lupo from Eureka, Ballard and Sierra from Dollhouse, Seven from ST:Voyager, Henry from Sanctuary… All appeared in the Mortal Kombat web series. A sign that the stars of the geek shows are massive geeks themselves, willing to support other geeks in the creation of geek shows.
Only the geeky, nerdy, unpopular sci-fi genre garners that sort of loyalty from the performers. We are too nice, we accept whatever shows the “SyFy” channel is willing to pay for as the best we can get. Science Fiction deserves better, and there is a thousand books, already written, waiting to be made into the next big thing.
I want something more than sexy vampires and wrestling. Make an Ender’s Game series, an Earthsea Quartet or even something unique and special. But please, don’t make me watch fecking True Blood and assorted wrestling apes.
