Fall 2009 new SF TV shows

Mark Wilson on the About sci-fi/fantasy blog, posts about some of the new programs that are due to start during the 2009 fall premiere season. Here are some of the highlights:
  • FlashForward Premieres Sep. 24, 2009 ABC - What would you do if you were given a glimpse of the future? Would you accept your destiny, or try to change it? In this case the whole world is being given a glimpse of their future.....
  • The Prisoner Premieres Nov. 2009 AMC - In the 1967 British series, of the same name, Patrick McGoohan never quite knew what was going on or why. The miniseries was filmed extensively on location in Namibia and South Africa, all as part of the show's skewed reality.
  • Stargate: UniversePremieres Oct. 2, 2009 Syfy - Instead of being planet-based and hopping through stargates to random strange worlds, SGU strands its team on a spaceship built by the Ancients, far from human civilization. (hasn't this been done by the Star Trek? Anyone remember Voyager?)

@ Stargate Universe: We loved Star Trek Voyager, and we loved Lost in Space with Will Robinson in the 60's. I think it's okay that Stargate Universe plays it again (Sam).

Oh Snap John!!! You're right! More than Voyager, Space Family Robinsons were doing it up LONG before Star Trek

thanks!
