The movie is “Laser Cats 5,” starring Weaver, Bill Hader and Andy Samberg. It is pretty much a spoof of Cameron’s most popular films, including Terminator, Aliens, Titanic and of course Avatar.
Thats not all folks we also have the skit from the show that pokes fun at the sex scene in Avatar. Check out both videos below.

First off Hinman failed to mention any show that is on the SyFy Channel. Why is that Mikey? I'm starting to wonder about you boy. Now on with my rant on the subject at hand. Knight Rider, any true Sci-Fi fan knew that this show was doomed from the first 10 minutes of the pilot, I knuckled down and watched 4 episodes even though it made me want to puke my guts out in the new KIT the whole time I was watching, till I just couldn't take anymore. Pushing Daisies was a cute show and I watched it for the whole first season, but cuteness wears out quick, babies are cute too, but just think about one with a real humdinger of a stinky diaper, enough said there. By year two I would catch it at some point, some times months after the episode aired on the DVR. As for TSCC, season one was awesome, it was kicking much ass up to the season two premier, and it was downhill from then on out, bad acting, bad storylines, even the way they would put the scenes together just sucked.
Fox's "Dollhouse," a sci-fi show that was suppose to be geared for the female gender. Ummm, how did that work out, it failed just as I knew it would. No offense intended ladies, but there just aren't enough true sci-fi fans of the fairer sex to sustain a TV series on the public air waves at this time. For most of us guys it just turned our stomachs inside out. I have a strong feeling that the up coming SyFy Channel's "Battlestar Galactica" spinoff series "Caprica" will turn out the same way as Dollhouse.
We also lost two series that was on the ABC Family Channel that very few talk about when addressing Genre ratings, the sad part is they were both good series. "Kyle XY" and "The Middleman" where both excellent shows and in my opinion if they where on ABC's public air channels they would have survived and been here today gearing for a new season. We also lost "Stargate Atlantis" that was on none other than the SyFy Channel, not many talking about it either. The biggest problem with Atlantis was the constant change in Characters, also by the third season the storylines was getting very dull. And last but not least of shows we lost was the USA Networks "4400" series. Great show overall, but issues with some of the actors and storylines going dry helped lead this show to it demise.
As for existing shows, the CW's "Smallville" was moved from it's Thursday night slot to Friday night, so they could make room for another show geared for the ladies called the "Vampire Diaries." Smallville took a big hit in the ratings due to the move but it now seems the show ratings are climbing back up and it's fair to say that we will get at least one more season of Smallville, and yes the show is kicking more ass than normal so make sure to tune in, no matter what time slot it's in. As for Vampire Diaries, it's ratings are good, but it is not no where as popular as Smallville was when it was in that time slot, and the new series has hurt "Supernatural" in the ratings. As for Supernatural, if any of you have been watching lately can see that even the Winchester boy's are growing tired of the series and I suspect we will being the departure of Sam and Dean at the end of this season even if the series is renewed, which I doubt will happen.
Now for the big dogs. "Lost" is fixen to start it's finale season. Last season the episodes had gotten better than the two previous seasons, but it was to late, most folks had already moved on and wasn't willing to give LOST another chance. Heroes, will more than likely be renewed for a new season and yes the episodes have gotten better but I think it's to late and like LOST, the viewers they lost won't give Heroes a another chance and it's ratings will never be as high as they were before."V", to be honest it's to early for me to predict, but so far this new series is on the right track and I give it a A rating in all areas. "Flash Forward" I feel will flash out by the end of it's first season.
Tune in tomorrow and I'll cover more on TV series not mentioned in this article and give you the real scoop on whats wrong with most of the genre shows today and why they are dying. Till then just remember "It's all about the Sci-Fi Baby!!"
"Official word from Fox: 'We will air all 13 episodes and this gives Joss the opportunity to end in a significant way'," said Variety's Michael Schneider via Twitter.
I hate it for Joss Whedon but he should have had a more active role in the series than just slapping his name on it. And I really hate that it looks like Summer Glau is becoming a jinx to any TV series that she gets involved with. I like Summer, she has talent and is a icon to most of us SciFi fans.
"V" was seen by 14.3 million viewers and had a 5.2 rating among adults 18-49.
That's the biggest scripted series premiere rating for a freshman show this fall. And particularly impressive for a show that's self-starting ABC's lineup (it's the highest-rated 8 p.m. drama series debut since … ABC's "Lost," actually). Compared to the "Shark Tank" average in the time period, "V" was up a rather dizzying 213%.
"V" bested tough competition from "NCIS" (20.2 million, 4.3), which nonetheless ranked as the evening's most-watched show. The alien invasion drama gained 6% from its first half hour to its second.
Critics were a bit all over the map on "V", ranging from a rave in USA Today to NY Times calling it slapdash and formulaic to Hollywood Reporter landing somewhere in between. (Most agreed, however, that the scene below rocked).
Since a dissatisfied ABC changed showrunners on the series after seeing the first four episodes, it should be interesting to see if "V" is able to maintain its ratings strength over the coming weeks. If it does, ABC will bring back the show starting with Episode 5 in March. ABC's other new sci-fi drama, "FlashForward," also launched strong in an 8 p.m. slot, but has since softened in the ratings amid some viewer frustration and a showrunner shakeup.
The 8 p.m. "V" surge put ABC just a tenth of a point behind CBS for the nightly win. "NCIS" wasn't impacted much by "V," slouching 9% from its last original airing two weeks ago. "NCIS: Los Angeles" (15.3 million, 3.6) was down 8%. "Good Wife" (12.2 million, 2.7) won 10 p.m. and slipped a tenth.
After "V," audiences didn't stick around to boost ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" (15.1 million, 3.1), which was only up a tenth — very different crowds. "The Forgotten" (7.3 million, 1.9) was down a tenth.
NBC's two-hour "Biggest Loser" (9.1 million, 3.5) was down 10%. The Jay Leno Show" (6 million, 2.0) had a welcome rise from last Tuesday — up 11%. Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance" (6.1 million, 2.4) slipped a tenth. The CW's "90210" (1.9 million, 1.0) was on par while "Melrose Place" (1.5 million, 0.8) gained a bit.
"When Sylar meets his father, he’s going to see a path ahead of him that he doesn’t want to take," reveals an insider. "He has a lot more in common with his father than he realized."
Producer Bryan Fuller, who will be returning to the show explained that "Heroes" will now once again be character-driven. "It’s not necessarily a reboot as much as it is going back to the basic spirit of the show and pulling people back in," he explained. "We’re also going to tell fewer stories per episode. We’re going to limit it to three or four with one big one that you can wrap the stories around. We’re altering the structure of the show so that there’s a very clear A story that takes up a larger percentage of the show so that that story gets traction."
He also talked about what we can expect from the upcoming episodes. Fuller said: "People will die. And some will return. Matt’s wife [Janice] comes back. We’ll find out what happens when you have a superbaby."
But even with this news at this point I’m not sure the show can be salvaged and I don’t think any star can help get the ratings back, the fan base for the show has just lost all interest and are just tired of all the none followed through promises for the last two seasons. But we are glad to see Glover back in action and hopefully this time the son won’t kill him off.
What do you think?
"I think there very well could be more in the future," he told Bloody-Disgusting. "The studio has not indicated another one yet, but there certainly is an audience for it. I think what happened this past summer was a function of bad luck and bad timing with the release. These movies cost a lot of money, not just to make but to market them as well. When the studio looks at the sales of the DVD that’s when they will really decide to see if its worth risking. There is still a lot of love with 20th Century Fox, as well as with the fans."
Spotnitz also revealed that he’d like the story of the new sequel to revolve around "Alien Colonization." "If we were to do one more movie, I think it pretty obviously would have to deal with Alien Colonization." he said. "In the series we say its coming in 2012, I honestly think that that is the movie that the fans are most eager to see. Hat would be the one I would want to make. For me I think its pretty integral to the series to make tell that story."
He continued: "With ‘I Want to Believe,’ we were un-tethered by the TV show, we could tell any story we want. If you are a fan of the show, you know that about 80% of the stories do not have anything to do with aliens; they were stand alone scary stories. This movie was more about the relationship between Mulder and Scully, and not so much about the X-File."
So do you want to see another X-Files Movie made?
But now EW.com’s Michael Ausiello says the TV version of the Man of Steel could be sticking around for at least another year. Most of us who are long time fans feel the series has improved greatly this season, and asked by one such excited fan if the show could return for Season 9, Ausiello replies, "I hear The CW will likely take the don’t-fix-if-not-broke approach and keep its Thursday line-up intact next season," implying both Smallville and Supernatural will be back for the 2009-2010 season.
Also the CW may be more keen on keeping "Smallville" now because "The Graysons" project they had in development has been scrapped and laid to rest. That potential series about a young Dick Grayson before he becomes Robin the Boy Wonder was perceived as a potential replacement for "Smallville". However, with "Smallville" still pulling in the ratings for the network and "The Graysons" no longer happening, The CW may be thinking it’s just best to stick with their proven series and Thursday night line up.
Ausiello also says that a recent rumor that The CW had already renewed "Supernatural" for a fifth season is not true. However, considering the very respectable numbers that show is pulling in this season, it would be a surprise if it didn’t come back next fall.
So are you looking forward to another new season of Smallville?
