Falling Sky's episode 1. Oh dear, another lame SciFi tv series I'll watch to the bitter end hoping it will get better, but knowing secretly knowing it won't.

Well, as expected, I sat through the second episode of F.Sky's yesterday.

This time I had my finger poised over the "fast forward" button on my PVR and you may be disappointed (but perhaps not surprised) to read that it got plenty of use.

I think there was about 30 seconds of "alien" footage in the whole episode, most of it being spent on playing out a bad version of a Mad Max 'You'll never take our Gasoline' scene. Why does our TV SciFi have to be so over-thought (Stargate Universe?) these days, rather than a simpler, more formulaic, yet engaging escape into the stars/mind of the fantastical? If shows really must aim for syndication, with 20+ episodes in a drawn out series, best follow the Scooby Doo format (aka, Star Trek, CSI, 24 etc.) rather than this over thought cr*p.

The good news is, with episodes like this I'm actually looking forward to next week, as it can only get better! Ho hum...

Interesting F1 politics blog post (http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/andrewbenson/2011/06/circuits_weigh_into_engine_row.html). Given the worrying thought that the remainder of the 2011 season may drift into tedium, if last weekends race was anything to go by at least, one wonders if anything good is on the horizon. "Bring back refuelling" - that's what I say :-)!

Dropped by here for a weeknight dinner recently. I'd say it was "ok, but not great food. Beer quality and service really good". Beer (Ringwood 49nr & T.E.A.) were both very nice. Service was really good - polite and reasonably prompt, although suspect it might go a little haywire if the place got really busy. I had a 8oz steak, ordered medium rare, which ended up being served rare/blue. Still, I ate it rather than send it back because I was hungry, don't mind rare beef, and I'd already covered it in a rather over-dilled Béarnaise (don't think there should be any Dill in Béarnaise?) before I discovered the error. There was a specials board, but none of it really excited, and the normal menu is too limited for anything more than infrequent visits (which is a shame given its also a hotel). Still, if you want a good pint of beer, in a decent country pub, give it a go.
