Oprah's bookclub for geeks
15 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

I remember seeing this show one night on the local PBS station. The show, at the time, dealt with the topics of clones and cloning. (This was back before cloning became the hot topic it is now). The host had various sci-fi authors discussing how they used the issue of cloning in their novels, and how possible it is for cloning to become a reality.

Let me tell you, from this first episode, I was HOOKED!!!

Later episodes focused on the appeal of dinosaurs, time travel, alternative history fiction, and comic book themes. Unfortunately, the show was only on for a short time, then it was taken off the air, and the host would go on to be part of the cast of the Red Green show.

But thanks to this show, I realized that sci-fi is more than just aliens or spaceships.
