We are now hosted by flaunt.nu 🙂 I’m still re-uploading the gallery, but everything else should be up and working. I’ll make another post the gallery is fully up again!
I’ve fixed the errors now and everything should be showing up ok.
My host upgraded php and looks like the WordPress theme broke. I’ll fix it ASAP.
Interesting write-up by Darren via them0vieblog.
It is very hard to judge a series based on the first season alone. After all, many long-running series evolve quickly and radically from their debut year. In many cases, the first season is about desperately trying to find a footing as everybody gets used to the realities of producing a television show. Assessing a first season is often an exercising in gauging potential, which makes it a risky proposition when trying to evaluate the first and only season of a cancelled television show.
Space: Above and Beyond contains its fair share of clunkers, as does any first season with twenty-odd episodes. There are episodes that seem at odds with the premise and mood of the show, being written by staff writers before the show went to air or simply trying to do something with which the show isn’t comfortable. There are episodes that have interesting ideas, but don’t place emphasis on the show’s strengths.
However, this is all but expected for a first season. A first season is a learning experience for all involved. After all, the first season of The X-Files was packed with episodes like Shadows, Fire, Lazarus, Young at Heart and Born Again. It is very rare for the first season of any show – particularly a genre show – to be the strongest. There are rules to be learned, beats to be established, foundations to be laid. If shows are lucky, that work gets to pay off in later seasons, as everybody gets more comfortable.
Space: Above and Beyond never got that chance, which is a shame. Because there is a phenomenal amount of potential on display here.
I have a bunch of old magazines etc. that have S:AAB stuff in them. Here’s some scans of them…
