The Bad News The idiots at TV4 have taken off the Sliders and Star Trek repeats on Sundays! Looking at the new TV Guide for 29 Dec - 4 Jan, they've replaced them with useles Informercials until 3:00pm and then The Sixth Sense "a seveties drama series about a parapsychologist who investiates psychic phenomena." To make matters worse, and for those who are REALLY wanting to punish themselves for eating too much on Christmas Day, TV2 are showing the world's most boring sci-fi movie 2001: A Space Oddity ... opps, Odyssey at 12:00noon on Sunday, 30 December. According to the thick TV Guide Movie "Reviewer" ...Released some 30-plus years ago, this sci-fi flick works like a confidence trick; the sepcial effects (which pre-date Star Wars by none years!) are so spellbinding that few people complain of the obscure storyline and clinically cold feeling. **** There's also no StarGate SG-1 on the Tuesday (New Year's Day). As for TV4's idea of New Year's Day programming: they must think everyone will be staying in bed all day - nothing but Informercials!! The Good News Futurama is back! 7:00pm, TV2 starting Sunday, 30 December. Also back is The A-Team!! Another excellent old TV series, although it's in a silly timeslot: 9:30pm, TV4 starting Sunday, 30 December. LucasFilm fans might want to book their lounge chair for Willow on TV3, 7:30pm, Sunday, 30 December. The ALF movie is being repeated (again) 1:00pm, TV2, Wednesday, 2 January - for those who remember ALF!
