Blech. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. Ok, maybe a lot. GorT was never a fan of this show. Way too campy. Hasselhoff was over the top. Ugh. My first vote off the island is right here. Yes, it’s science fiction. Yes, people thought the car was cool. Blech.
Number 44: Jericho
GorT has no pattern recognition on this post-apocalyptic drama in the alternate universe where major American cities have been destroyed by nuclear attacks. Apparently they had a following strong enough to revive it for a 2nd season…
Number 43: Space: Above and Beyond
A mid-1990’s show that didn’t register at all with GorT. I guess I had better things to do. It looks like it might have potential. Space, future, aliens, etc. According to the article, sounds like they dealt with some topics like in-vitro discrimination, and artificial intelligence.
Number 42: Dollhouse
GorT never watched this series but the concept is kind of a spin on Total Recall. The main character is an “Active” whose memories are backed up and then wiped while she is loaned out to wealthy people to do whatever they want. At the end, she gets her memories back and a big payout. Of course, the problem is that memories from her “loan periods” creep into her conscious mind.
Number 41: Battle of the Planets
GorT knew this as “G Force” (no, not that stupid hamster movie) and watched it frequently when visiting relatives in Philadelphia. It wasn’t carried on the local channels in the DC area when I was growing up. Animated cool ships and battles in space – what more could a sci fi kid want?.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
