     I'm really tired of these "Fannies"

    Editorials You know, I'm getting really tired of these so called fannies. OK, they're not called fannies, thats what I call them. They pop up in the sci-fi world whenever something new comes down the pipe. You know the type: "I dont like the new Doctor", "I hate the new Battlestar Galactica", "Jar Jar ruined Star Wars", "Star Trek: The Next Gen wont be as good as the original" On and on.
    Science fiction fans consider themselves open minded and foward thinking. Really? Prove it.
    Why hate the thing you love? Sit back and be glad 2005 turned out to be the best year for sci-fi/fantasy films and TV since the early 80's.
    The same people wearing "Classic Trek" t-shirts (remember those?) are the ones forking over money to keep Enterprise on the air.
    Now I read that David Tennant is getting flack from so-called fans unhappy with his choice for Doctor #10. Are you kidding me? Again? Did we NOT learn our lesson? No one has seen him as the Doctor for more than a minute. Russell T. Davies gives me no reason to doubt him. This new series is near perfect. His casting excellent. Yet, here we go again.... Fannies. Didn't you torture J-NT enough? Get over youself. Open your mind, be glad the show has returned. If RTD needs your help, he'll ask. As for me, he won't call me. Come to think of it, he won't call you either!

    BRAVO Ken! I whole heartedly agree! Iremember back in 1982 when Star TrekII Wrath of Kahn came out, how I heard all of these people saying "that's not the way I would have done it". Had William Shatner done the "Get a life" skit at that time I would have used it on them! I gave "Next Gen", "DS9" And "Voyager" a chance and If I didn't like it I simply moved on. I wouldn't even call these people fannies, I'd call them for what they are, "Noodges"!

    These fannies are also the same people that will complain about the Star Wars prequels, but will make sure they see the midnight showing, and most likely in costume.

    "Hero! I should have been a God!"
