Space Opera Society Wants To Bring Back Quality Sci-FI Shows.

space opera society logo

Do you ever wonder if we'll ever see the good old days when quality Sci-fi was all over TV?  DS9, Voyager, SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, BSG.  Remember when we were spoiled with these quality shows?  What happened?  Did you get frustrated when big TV studios would cancel your favourite space opera show after just twelve episodes?  Or cancel the new Stargate after two seasons just when it was getting good?  What would they replace it with?  Wrestling or some poorly made Megashark movie.

SOS (Space Opera Society) are trying to bring back the glory days.  A non profit production studio which will produce original and quality science fiction for the web and possibly more.

Now don't be put off thinking that this is a bunch of guys with a camera and a green screen.  SOS is a collaboration of writers, producers, SFX gurus and more who love the genre and worked on some of the top sci-fi show ever made.  Don't believe me?  Check out the video below to see the quality that can be expected.

SOS are currently running an Indegogo campaign and trying to raise approx $200,000 for start up costs.  Check out the campaign to see some of the concept artwork that will definitely wet your appetite.

We're definitely on board with this and hope SOS meet their goal.  The Bearded Trio are all for quality science fiction.  We're going to add a link to the main page for the duration of the campaign.

SOS Write:

SOS is a response to a distress signal by fans of science fiction around the cosmos to revive the genre, especially the space opera, which has been forgotten over the years.

SOS aspires to become THE virtual meeting place for lovers of science fiction, and fans are being invited to participate in the development of projects, to freely discuss their passion in an environment respectful of its fans, and of course to watch our productions.

By adopting a crowdfunding mode of financing, and a transparent business model, SOS will go where few production companies have gone before. In this regard, SOS is inspired by New York`s Metropolitan Opera, as the MET Members (fans and opera lovers), and SOS donors (fans and enthusiasts of traditional sci-fi shows), know that their investment will be used for production, and profits will be reinvested in the development and production of new projects.

SOS can also count on an outstanding team of international talent (writers, actors, directors, make up artists, production designers, model makers, VFX artists) who have worked on such cult series and movies as Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Space: 1999, Stargate, X-files, Dune, Alien, Outland, Tron and many more...

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
