TV show of James Tiptree, Jr. short story

Postby Omphalos » Thu Dec 16, 2010 11:19 am

Was psyched to find a TV version of The Screwfly Solution, a fantastic short story by James Tiptree, Jr. Its got a fairly typical Western Canada feel to it, and employs B-level actors, but worth the time to watch.

I think Im going to get more of this series and watch. I though it looked low-budget so I didn't watch when it aired. And I thought the Masters of SF was hit-or-miss.
