Your Say Sunday! 13/9/2009

Say whatever you want to in the comments to this post — random, off topic thoughts, ideas, suggestions, questions, recommendations, criticisms (which can be anonymous), surveys, introductions if you have never commented before, personal news, self-promotion, requests to be added to the blog roll and so on. If I forget, remind me. Remember these comments can be directed at all the readers, not just me.

ALSO. You can use this space to re-ask me questions you asked me before that I failed to answer because I was too busy.

AND you can use this space to comment on posts that are old enough that no one is reading the comments threads anymore.

WRITING FOR THIS BLOG. If I see a big free form comment that deserves more attention, I will pull it and make it its own post. I am always looking for reviews of games, tv, movies, music and books. So feel free to contact me if you want to write for The Furnace.

    What do Ausies feel about Quigly Down Under & Farscape? Do big movies that achieve “Hit” status in the states usually reach the same status down under? What about the reverse?

    BlaqueSaber – I was a big fan of Farscape when it was out… I didn’t realize at first that it was an Australia production for about the first season as well and from where I’m living now they were filming it about 30 minutes away from here. As for Quigly Down Under I haven’t heard of that before so I can’t comment on that show.

    As with all Sci-Fi there are fans on Farscape here as there are in the US.

    Generally these days movies that are the big ‘hits’ are the same here as in the US. Ones like GI Joe didn’t have as big an impact since my generation didn’t grow up with it as kids. We were more of an Action Man crowd than a GI Joe crowd. But others like Star Wars, Transformers and Star Trek had just as big a response worldwide from what I’ve seen and read.

    There haven’t been many movies made here that have been big hits elsewhere… they generally form a cult following with the likes of Wolf Creek, Rogue and going back to the 80’s with Peter Jackson’s early movies like Brain Dead and Bad Taste.
