VR5

Filed under: Geek Stuff — britinla @ 7:00 am

I seem to have an odd attraction to TV shows that get cancelled far too early, failing to get even their first season broadcast in its entirety. Wonderfalls and Firefly both made it onto DVD. The older VR5 has not been so lucky. Despite the presence of David McCallum and Anthony Head, who plays a role that is oddly similar to the one he was to play in Buffy, the show has not see the light of the day for years. The Internet is a wonderful place, and this fascinating slice of TV can be found if you know where to look and have some patience. I look forward to seeing it again.

  2. Did you ever see the Lone Gunmen? That was my favourite geeky show ever, and it only lasted a season, but did manage to sort of predict 9/11.
