Check out the Latest Mind Meld

The topic of this week's Mind Meld over at SF Signal is near and dear to my heart: "What are the most realistic (and the most ridiculous) uses of science in SciFi film and TV?"

Head over there to see what I and the other Mind Melders have to say on the subject.

You are right Peggy ! most of the film makers assume that they have working knowledge of a science as simpmle as biology -a grossly mistaken notion ! Its really very unfortunate ! But what is way out ? Why not hire the services of professional biologists or writers with a penchant for writing texts or sf stories based on biology ?

Well, they do hire scientists sometimes - usually physicists or astronomers or rocket scientists, though. I have a post in progress that gives some insight into why that might not be enough to provide a show with accurate science.
