Sure to to soothe any concerns about that fateful day, MANDRAKE will certainly fill the bill! Oh and let’s not forget SyFy has been involved in a massive science fiction conspiracy! Conspiracy? Well yes indeed! As Jack O’Niell of Stargate SG-1 would say “Yeah Sure You Betcha“! WHR have been able to confirm beyond any shadow of a doubt that the SyFy Teams in both New York and Burbank have been in league non other than the likes of Roger Corman, KING of the Science Fiction horror genre!
Yes its all true my friends. Roger and SyFy intend to unleash SHARKTOPUS on the world as you know it. You heard correctly science fiction addicts, not only will you get MANDRAKE and SHARKTOPUS to wet your SciFi whistles, we will then surely be all warmed and ready up for the return of Stargate Universe on September 28, 2010! And OMG, lets not forget that you can DVR and save the classic SHARKTOPUS and MANDRAKE FOREVER so you view them over and over again!
Well that’s about all you need to know for now my friends! All we can say is that if this news does not get you excited, we suggest you check into a local institution for some much needed therapy AFTER you download these to you iPhone or DROID-X for private viewing in your little padded white room! Know this: Adria The Cat will be viewing and demanding I replay these features for her again and again until the premiere of SGU on September 28, 2010 when she will snatch the DVR remote controls from my grubby little paws… errrr hands!
Although while we will undoubtedly be satiated by these fantastic offerings. have no fear, we will watch the Stargate franchise from MGM Studios Stargate Universe continue aboard Destiny and her fabulous ensemble cast over and over again to set the next worlds record! For now we sincerely appreciate your visiting WHR!
