Some days there’s just not much going on in the world of science fiction, a fact that occasionally makes it hard to come up with enough interesting material to fill out this column. Today…is not one of those days. The TV schedule is packed to bursting with notable science fiction, including a Thor: The Dark World tie-in episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a marathon of the Ninth Doctor’s episodes on BBC America, a new futurism/technology show hosted by James Woods, and more.
You can also help fill out your video shelves quite easily today. Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright’s The World’s End hits Blu-ray today, so plan your very own “Three Flavours Cornetto” marathon, but don’t forget to stock the bar first. Star Trek: The Next Generation’s snazzy, remastered fifth season comes to Blu-ray today as well, bringing high-def versions of some of the show’s best episodes, including “Darmok,” “The Inner Light,” and the “Unification” two-parter. Are your tastes a bit more cultish and eclectic? Both Night of the Comet and Tank Girl are getting new collector’s editions today as well.
Here’s what’s new Today in Science & Science Fiction!
