Jericho

It’s funny that whenever a list gets put together of the best science fiction television shows of all time it always seems like people gravitate towards programs like “Star Trek,” “Babylon 5” and “Stargate” – all the predictable ones. But what about those great shows that always get forgotten about. The ones that you watched religiously when they on television, you may have even bought them on DVD, but always seem to be forgotten during the traditional ‘best of’ discussions and debates. Well let’s take a look at some of those forgotten greats.

“Firefly” (2002) – From the ultra-creative mind of Joss Whedon (yes the same man that is now mostly known for “The Avengers” movie) came “Firefly.” This short lived series came at the height of Whedon’s “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” period… the man could do no wrong. Well that’s what people thought but Firefly kind of proved he could – the show never really gained any traction and the network axed it after just one season. But then the show found a new life on DVD and quickly became one of the highest selling DVD box sets of all time.

“Firefly” is an absolute gem of a science fiction series, Whedon wrote it as a space western with the cowboy being Captain Malcolm ‘Mal’ Reynolds (Nathan Fillion), a virtual outlaw who was always up for doing something a little dodgy if it meant money for himself and his trust crew/passengers which included a prostitute, a preacher and a number of ‘gunslingers’. With some great dialogue, entertaining story-lines and amazing characterization, this is one sci-fi show that all fans of the genre must sit down and enjoy.

“Dark Angel” (2000-2002) – With so many big name directors and producers making their presence felt on the small screen it seemed only fitting that one of the best minds behind sci-fi would bring something to the table. In 2000 James Cameron introduced the world to “Dark Angel”, a television show that revolved around the character of Max (Jessica Alba) a genetically-enhanced human that lives in the real world after escaping from the lab where she was born. With the help of the dogged Logan Cale (Michael Weatherly) helping her out part of the fun of the show was watching as Max learnt more about what had happened to her while she avoided capture and made moves to expose her plight to the world.

“Farscape” (1999-2003) – When you first think of quality science-fiction television you don’t immediately think of Australia – yet that is where one of the finest sci-fi shows was made and produced. “Farscape” first hit television screens in 1999 and revolved around the adventures of astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder) who found himself going through a wormhole and finding himself in a part of the universe that he never knew existed.

While trying to find his way home he lived on a ‘living’ ship with crew that included many alien beings and the very human-like Officer Aeryn Sun (Claudia Black) with whom there was constant ‘will-they-won’t-they’ moments.

“Farscape” was always one of those shows where you would never know what to expect from any given episode. Some would be funny, some would be action packed while others would be extremely dark and make you really think. The show also included one of the most evil ‘baddies’ of all time the mysterious Scorpius (Wayne Pygram).

“Smallville” (2001-2011) – The character of Clark Kent/Superman has fascinated a number of generations now, so it was very little surprise when in 2001 DC Comics allowed Superman to once again hit the small screen. This time Clark was played by Tom Welling  and the show was much darker than its predecessor “The Adventures Of Lois & Clark”. “Smallville” allowed viewers to watch as Clark battled with everyday things such as high school with friends such as Chloe (Allison Mack) while also learning about his super powers and trying to work out his feelings for friend Lana Lang (Kristen Kreuk). Fans of the series also got to watch his rivalry with arch-enemy Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) from day one.

“Jericho” (2006-2008) – Perhaps the most underrated sci-fi series of all time, though, is “Jericho.” The screenwriting and characterization on this show was top-notch and it was one of those shows where you simply could not miss the next episode. The show originally aired in 2006 and was centered in the township of Jericho, a township that is not even damaged when nuclear blasts hit most major American cities. Episodes looked at the problems that this caused for local residents as they were now cut off from everything but also looked at how it impacted on family and of course local politics. The brilliance of this show though was that the storylines also made the audience wonder what involvement two of the main characters – Jake Green (Skeet Urlich) and Robert Hawkins (Lennie James) – had in the terrorist attacks.

Just how much “Jericho” was loved by its fans was evident when the show was originally cancelled after its first season and the fans lobbied the television network until a shortened second season was made. Even after that season folded the show continued on in the form of comics.

As you can see there are a tonne of good science fiction shows out there that need to be explored if you have never had the time to sit down and watch them. Sometimes the underrated shows are just as good as those deemed to be the leaders in their fields.

Jeremy Renner - The Hurt Locker

Jeremy Renner is the perfect reason why an actor should never give up, even when things are looking like they are going to be tough for a while. Renner has slaved his way through a career that started way back in 1995 and it has only been the last few years that this talented actor has received the acclaim and popularity that he deserves.

Renner’s love for acting began way back in his college days at Modesto Junior College. While he dabbled in psychology, computer science and criminology, it was the fact that he could show emotional expression in the theater department that led him to concentrate on his acting. Aside from college, he decided to expand his acting range by working at the local Police Academy as an actor as part of the Police training exercises. He then traveled to San Francisco so he could train at the American Conservatory Theater.

On his arrival in Los Angeles in 1993, he headed straight into the theater world when he starred in and co-directed the critically acclaimed “Search And Destroy,” before landing a role in the feature film “National Lampoon’s Senior Trip.” He then appeared in a number of television shows and movies including “Deadly Games,” “Strange Luck,” “A Friend’s Betrayal,” “A Nightmare Come True,” “To Have & Hold,” “Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane,” “The Net,” “Time Of Your Life” and “Angel” before scoring more feature film roles in “Paper Dragons,” “Fish In A Barrel” and “Monkey Love.”

Renner’s career took a huge step forward when in 2002 he played serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in David Jacobson’s “Dahmer” – a role that saw him gain plenty of critically praise. Then in 2003, he gained box office success when he starred alongside good friend Colin Farrell in the action blockbuster “S.W.A.T.”

The success of “S.W.A.T.,” however, didn’t have a huge impact on Renner’s career straight away and soon the actor once again found himself picking up a variety of roles, ranging from voicing a character in the “Catwoman” video game through to appearing in Pink’s video clip for “Trouble.” He did, however, manage to appear in notable films including “The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things,” “Lords Of Dogtown,” (with Heath Ledger), “North Country,” (alongside good friend Charlize Theron) zombie flick “28 Weeks Later” and the critically acclaimed “The Assassination Of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” – the latter being a film that saw him get to act amongst an A-List cast including Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck.

Then came the film that made Renner a worldwide name right around the world – Kathryn Bigelow’s intense war drama “The Hurt Locker,” which earned him a Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role Academy Award nomination at the 2010 Oscars. He then backed that up with another performance that saw him earn another Oscar nomination; this time for the Ben Affleck directed “The Town.”

These nominations saw Renner become hot property in Hollywood. Soon he found himself playing comic book character Hawkeye who first appeared in “Thor” and then had a major part in the mega blockbuster hit “The Avengers.” Now considered a true action hero Renner soon found himself acting alongside Tom Cruise in “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” and then with Rachel Weisz in “The Bourne Legacy.” He also starred in the underrated “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.”

Jeremy Renner is very much THE MAN in Hollywood at the moment and the fact that he is one of the stars of three major franchises will ensure that he will be seen on cinema screens for a number of years. Yes, Jeremy Renner really has made it in Hollywood.

Russell Crowe

Soap television shows. Yes, they quite often have some very tragic story-lines, terribly clichéd dialogue and some woeful acting, but believe or not some of the finest actors going around today got their start in the acting world in those dreaded soaps. Let’s have a look at some actors who have soap operas to thank for launching them.

Russell Crowe: It’s hard to imagine that screen strong man Russell Crowe started his career off in a soap opera. The actor, who hails from New Zealand, may have made a name for himself winning an Oscar for playing the tough Maximus in Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator,” but he started his acting career in an Australia soap opera called “Neighbours.” As a television show, “Neighbours” is often joked about, yet has been the starting ground for many a young celebrity including Dean Geyer, Kylie Minogue and even Guy Pearce. The ‘soft’ opening to his career certainly didn’t hold back Crowe who has become a megastar and has performed in many memorable films including “The Insider” and “A Beautiful Mind,” which also earned him Oscar nominations.

Susan Sarandon: There isn’t much that Susan Sarandon has achieved during her acting career. She has appeared in classic films such as “Thelma & Louise” and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” as well as receiving a number of Oscar nominations over the years – for films such as “Atlantic City,” “Lorenzo’s Oil” and “The Client.” She even won an Oscar in 1996 for her role in “Dead Man Walking,” but what most people don’t realise is that five years before she made a name for herself in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” she spent a year playing Patrice Kahlman in television soap “A World Apart.”

Chris Hemsworth: These days, movie fans know Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth mainly as “Thor,” the God with the Hammer that has had two feature films of his own as well as appearing in the big action blockbuster “The Avengers.” The last few years has seen Hemsworth appear in a number of big films including “Rush,” the “Star Trek” franchise, “Red Dawn,” “Snow White + The Huntsman” and “The Cabin In The Woods,” but before that Hemsworth was known to Australians as a soap star. He first made a guest appearance in “Neighbours” before starring in the other ‘rival’ soap “Home & Away” for three years.

Liam Hemsworth: Of course, it wouldn’t be right to mention Chris Hemsworth without mentioning his brother Liam who is known right around the world as the quiet and brooding Gale Hawthorne in “The Hunger Games” franchise. Liam also made a name for himself as a soap star in Australia before making his way to Hollywood. In an exact opposite to his brother, Liam started his career with a guest spot in “Home And Away” before landing a semi-regular role in “Neighbours” playing  Josh Taylor. Liam Hemsworth has also made a name for himself in America appearing in “The Expendables 2” and “Paranoia” alongside Harrison Ford.

Josh Duhamel: Many wrongfully believe that modern day big screen star Josh Duhamel got his acting break on television drama “Las Vegas,” where he played intelligent detective Danny McCoy. That theory however is wrong because Duhamel had been on the small screen years earlier than that as he played Leo du Pres in “All My Children” from 1999 to 2002. In only a storyline that only soap operas could get away with, Leo disappeared over a waterfall and his body was never found again. Since those days, Duhamel has made his way onto the big screen and appeared in “Transformers,” “When In Rome” and “Life As We Know It.”

So if you’re a budding young actor and you get cast in a television soap, certainly don’t think that the role on offer is beneath you, because as you can see, so many great big screen actors of today started with a role in the humble television soap.
