I want edgy, gritty stuff which is available on TV Links plz!
also also also if it's on the anime section, watch Serial Experiments Lain. you'll like that i think, it's like Lynch-gone-anime.
deep space nine, captain sisko is so hardcore
And even they're ropey half the time.
i didnt know such a thing existed
it's just not Star Trek. Lots of anime is gritty, edgy and sci-fi for a start off.
i suppose that was always quite 'gritty' and stuff
If it's there. It's edgy, gritty AND bleak. It's also very very good.
We fragging rule!
Because I was left feeling pretty 'meh' after that.
yeh i know wot you mean..but season two very good and season three ti jsut goes nuts.
how long do we have to wait for four???
and its camp disco star wars vibe
is good. Maybe not edgy though, it's gritty-ish. Maybe. I don't know.
erm probably not on TV links
im scared to look on google...
written by Nigel Kneale. Pretty legendary and not dirty like.
i am still a bit scared to look for it on google though, hmmm
to save on potentially dodgy links.
It was very prescient, predicting the rise of reality TV and the use of TV to pacify the masses.
ive always found Leonard Rossiter a bit depressing but i may investigate further, cheers!
its not edgy or gritty, but its the only sci-fi ive seen.
its was like a darker xfiles with bishop from aliens in it.
although i've not seen it for years and it might suck
was and still is really good if you don't mind dated cgi spaceships
shame it was canned.
from when i used to tape it instead of staying up late to watch it. every episode starts with several minutes of old newsnight footage
BBC2 showed the last episode at 2:20am or something, and it left me so emotionally drained that i watched what they showed next as well, which was a zsa zsa gabor film about beautiful women on venus bewitching some hapless astronauts.
as well if i remember rightly, there was a crossover episode with the xfiles, that was good, i think...
was ok, but kinda unfocused - chris carter took the first series in one direction, and then james wong & glenn morgan took it in another during season two. then season three changed completely again. then it got cancelled.
then chris carter did his usual cheeky thing of wrapping it up using the x-files ;)
Not Sci-Fi exactly....
Is Lost Sci-Fi? Look who I saw come out of shop today:
if you can ignore the dated effects and sets it's actually really good and surprisingly dark.
