Chariots of the Gods

Seen via a link in this article on Slashdot, it would appear that the SciFi channel is going to create a mini-series of Erich von Däniken's book Chariots of the Gods. Sounds like it could be fun, and I can't help but think that it could provide lots of fodder for the Bad Astronomer.

That bit of "almost related to astronomy" news aside, I'm also overjoyed to read that there's going to be a spin-off from Battlestar Galactica based around life on Caprica, around the time of the creation of the Cylons.

Ugh, von Däniken. His drivel bored me to tears the first time 'round. I think I'll pass this time.

I don't actually recall reading CotG (or any of his other stuff) but I am aware of the general idea. Being a bit of a fan of nutty ideas and kookdom in general I think it might be amusing.

Then again I think shouting at things that annoy me on the TV is fun... ;)

AT least (from the minute blurb) they are treating it as fiction. I will go out on a limb here and say it will feature laughable science and history.

Agreed. Perhaps for that reason I'll give it a go. I could use a good laugh.
