Current TV series "Defiance," guest star is Linda Hamilton. She drives up in a car, saves the protagonist and says, "Come with me if you want to live." Classic.
I'm in the middle of watching Firefly for the umpteenth time, fantastic show.
I would do the same with BSG (with the Firefly homage), but Netflix dropped it a while back.
Most of you may know that Nathan Fillion, the guy who played Captain Malcolm Reynolds in the Firefly series and movie Serenity, has starred in the crime drama Castle for several years now. On quite a few occasions, they have worked some pretty funny references to Firefly into the show.
On one episode that took place around the time of Halloween, he showed up at a crime scene in his Firefly outfit. His partner(Beckett) asked him what he was supposed to be and he said he was a Space Cowboy.
On another episode, him and Beckett were in the basement of a restaurant in Chinatown, persuing a Chinese bad guy. Beckett asked a couple of Chinese workers which way he went, but they didn't speak English, or at least pretended not to. So Fillion told the workers, in Chinese, that his partner was unstable and likely to begin firing at any second. They quickly pointed the direction the bad guy had taken.
As they resumed their pursuit, Beckett told Castle (Fillion) that she didn't know he spoke Chinese and asked if he had taken some time abroad, where he learned it. He replied something to the effect that he had picked it up from a TV show he used to like.
Yep, I very much enjoyed the Firefly references in Castle.
He's also a main character in Halo 3: ODST, and there were a few "gorram"s thrown around
He'll be reprising that role in Halo 5: Guardians, which I'm very much looking forward too.
Speaking of H3: ODST, Wash and Jayne were also heavily featured
Jayne and Zoë have both been guest stars on Castle. Adam Baldwin(Jayne) was a black-sheep detective from another precinct. He was hilarious.
In the final let shot of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica, the USS Enterprise makes a cameo appearance.
It's too bad she didn't get into the fight. I think she would have been more than a match for a Cylon Base Star. Hell, they could have just beamed all the skinjobs out into vacuum. I wonder if a Vulcan nerve pinch would work on a Cylon?
I've jumped around with my TV providers a few times over the last couple years, must have missed those episodes. Gotta go back and catch up some time.
All the times I've watched that, and I never noticed. When they're flying into the sun after everyone's on Earth?
That show was expensive as hell on disc. I still don't regret buying it.
I never noticed it either.
I so did not like the end of the old Galactica. Breaking her back and flying into the sun. I kept hoping they would somehow be rescued or saved for a future project.
The TV series Stargate SG-1 had about 20 references to Wizard of OZ. .
They also had a "ground Hog Day" episode, and they had another where they consulted on a a TV show called "Worm Hole eXtreme", which was a parody of SG-1.
"That's why is says Colonel on my uniform. . . Wait. . It doesn't actually say Colonel anywhere on my uniform. . "
"Someone get a Sharpie"
Quick, watch this.
That's an excellent watch.
In Falling Skies, the "harness" that the aliens use for mind control is a total knockoff of the creature in the Vincent Price movie The Tingler.
That "rift of distorted rock and roll music" was Eruption by Van Halen!
