    IIRC there was a discussion about this on Doctor Who, I think the Peter Davison episode with the Cybermen. Cybermen suggested emotions made one weak. Doctor said emotions enrich life. Cyberman puts a blaster to head of companion (Tegan?) and Doctor says 'don't shoot' and Cyberman says 'see...

    Dune 2019

    this should be at least a six-part series to do it justice somebody wrote that television has finally found its ideal format, the miniseries or extended series. stuff like Breaking Bad and Buffy are perfect for extended but not infinite runs.

    the 'Holmes and Watson' movie is getting horrific reviews. multiple accounts of people walking out on it. Will Ferrell movies are poster children for Hollywood today; stupid, foul, mean-spirited, uninspired, poor quality. Hollywood is great at the technical side of things--sfx, costumres--but...

    Sci-Fi Alien Encounters: Humans Technologically Advanced

    IIRC they found large batlike bodies in the mothership, so presumably the human form was just a vehicle. Phantom is shown at the very end, looks humanoid enough. sorry quality not better linque to youtube. entity shown around the one hour seven minute mark.

    Sci-Fi Alien Encounters: Humans Technologically Advanced

    Phantom from Space? Man from Planet X? I have a memory of a humanoid alien in white who has landed. he's in a lab and trying to communicate by knocking. I think he suffocates. might have been a MST3K one. old 50s black-n-white edit; that was Phantom from Space. poor thing dies at the end.
