Tick, tick, tick – we’re getting closer to number 1…do you know what it is? Did you cheat?
Number 15: Blake’s 7
GorT has no pattern recognition here – never heard of it or saw it. Blake’s 7 featuresRoj Blake, a political dissident who is arrested, tried and convicted on false charges. While being transferred to a prison planet, he and two fellow prisoners are sent to board and investigate an abandoned alien spacecraft. They get the ship working, commandeer it, rescue two more prisoners, and are joined by an alien guerrilla with telepathic abilities. In their attempts to stay ahead of their enemies and inspire others to rebel, they encounter a wide variety of cultures on different planets, and are forced to confront human and alien threats.
Number 14: Stargate SG-1
Building on the Stargate movie, which many think was average at best, this successful series has built a decent following and surpassed 200 episodes. Seeing Richard Dean Anderson not wiring something together with a stick of gum and his Swiss army knife is good – he delivered a solid performance. GorT wasn’t a regular watcher, but the occasional episodes were good.
Number 13: V (1983-85)
GorT watched all of these episodes. First, I did think that Faye Grant was hot. Second, the insurgent humans fighting against invading aliens with nefarious intentions is a great plot line. They spun off everything from xenophobia to cross-species reproduction. I did get a kick out of Michael Ironside (in a very Dirty harry-esque mode) and his militaristic gang when they joined the plot line.
Number 12: Lost
Ok, maybe GorT needs to give up his SciFi card but I’ve never watched any episode of Lost. Given the last episode, I doubt I ever will. Maybe it’s a modern take on Twin Peaks, etc. where you get a bizarre storyline that doesn’t quite make sense and is hard to discern what reality is but it’s hard for me to buy in. I think that was the main issue too: if you didn’t jump in when it launched it was a bit of a hurdle to do so later.
Number 11: Firefly
A Joss Whedon masterpiece – a rag-tag crew with such full and quirky characters thrown together in a misfit adventure. I don’t know if I could even pick out my favorite aspect of the show: Jayne? the “relationship” between Mal and Inara? Kaylee the ship’s engineer? Summer Glau’s portrayal of a bizarre character. Wow. Such goodness.
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.
