Lacking Natural Simplicity

Random musings on books, code, and tabletop games.


My wife is surprised that I enjoy the TV series Tremors; she categorizes it as Redneck SF. It is set in a rural area, and one of the characters is an ex-racecar driver, but I don't think that is enough to qualify it as Redneck SF. In any case, I enjoy Tremors. Like The Chronicle, another TV series that I liked, it doesn't take itself too seriously. And, since it doesn't take itself too seriously, it is easy to take on its own terms, which seem to those of GURPS Atomic Horror, subtitled: “Science Runs Amok in B-Movie Adventures!”.

As for the Sci Fi channel in general, I wish it had more actual Science Fiction in its line-up than horror and repulsive “reality” shows.
