    So, I’m guessing Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum weren’t available?

    Thursday premier? Hmmm. Interesting. I wonder how that will work out. I can’t remember what the cable competition will be on Thursday nights by the 27th.

  • Other than THAT Mrs. Lincoln how was the play?

    Thursday? Wow, must be either a notch above (or below) the usual Syfy movies on SaTURDay nights that feature low budgets, highschool level acting and actors badly in need of work with no shame. Of course the budgets on those things are so low they actually make decent money for SyFy.

    Maybe the YOU_FOZE will drop armor plated piranha-dino-octopus-snake land sharks with lasers shooting out of their eyes on the population of Earth? LOL!
