Some people have all the luck, and, by some people, I'm talking about director Joseph Kosinski. He was practically handpicked by TRON's creator himself to help bring that franchise back to life and into the 21st century, and the oft-maligned TRON: Legacy was born. Methinks Legacy gets a bad rap as it kept me entertained. Sure, it was all pretty and glossy, but is that such a bad thing? I mean ... have you ever looked at the inside of your PC? Happy birthday, Mr. Kosinski. He was born on this day in 1974.…Continue
I could be wrong, but I strongly imagine that Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson wouldn't mind having a SciFi franchise all of his own. And who knows? Maybe one day he will. But -- in the meantime -- I suppose action fans will just have to settle for his great little cameo-style performance in an episode of Star Trek: Voyager as well as his commanding lead in the space-age shoot 'em up, Doom. Johnson was born on this day in 1972.…Continue
I gave Syfy's expensive dystopian sci-fi program Defiance a look ... for about all of six episodes. Nothing about the characters and situations really grabbed me. Sure, it had a nice vibe to some of the alien cultures, but there was too little to maintain my interest. Actress Julie Benz -- as Mayor Amanda Rosewater -- gave the show some of its moral core. Plus, who doesn't appreciate a smokin' hot blonde? Benz was born on this day back in 1972.…Continue
Johnny Galecki and his fellow nerds on THE BIG BANG THEORY go a long way toward legitimizing what the various worlds of ours as fans look like, and that's a cause for celebration. Mr. Galecki was born on this day back in 1975, and, to that end, I say, "Happy Birthday!"Continue
For those of you who don't know it, actress Kate Mulgrew wasn't actually the first choice to play Star Trek: Voyager's Captain Kathryn Janeway, but as fate would have it she ended up in the role anyway. Who wouldn't want to be the very first female Starfleet captain with an entire ensemble built around her? Mulgrew did a solid job, though I thought the writers never quite found a consistent voice she could call her own in the show's seven year run.
Mulgrew was born on this day in 1955.…Continue
Continuing a long-standing trend of 'hot chicks in sci-fi,' today we get to focus on Jessica Alba! The star of TV and the silver screen really came to everyone's attention when she headlined the Fox TV sci-fi program Dark Angel -- in the post-apocalyptic world of tomorrow, Max (Alba) starred as a genetically-modified human who found work as a messenger. It lasted only two seasons, but it generated a lot of fond memories for its group of loyal fans.
Alba was born on this day in 1981.…Continue
