|Greetings, oh shiny one. I am minion #462.5, and I normally report to the Czar (may his shoes remained tied, and verily, not unto each other). I have been perusing the list of sci-fi shows, and it saddened me that you did not get to see the G-Force while in DC. I remember watching it (and hating the annoying kid on the team, making stupid ‘breep-doop’ noises all the time*, grrr) while I was growing up in northern VA. Channel 20 had it daily in the afternoons. 20 also had the totally awesome Sunday kung-fu movie time. Can’t remember which channel had Buck Rogers, but I agree that it totally jumped the shark when they moved it to the ship. Ugh.
*Seriously, who recruited that idiot?
Yeah, I was a regular Channel 20 viewer growing up but I don’t ever recall G Force being aired on it. Buck Rogers was aired on NBC so it would have been channel 4.
Thanks for writing in – hope you enjoy the rest of the list.
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.
