What Dregs You find on Sci Fi Channel

Adrian Paul is known for gorgeous man-hair and playing immortals, not the least of which is cousin of Connor, Duncan MacLeod of Highlander fame. Now he's in a pirates-meets-D&D-fantasy on the Sci fi channel called The Immortal Voyage of Captain Drake. I have caught an episode, and am disappointed, to say the least. First of all, there is much mediocre swordfighting in the show. Second, the acting is sub-par at best, Third, well, of course the script is awful. For a show that depends so much on stage combat, you'd think the many fights would look better. They look terrible. So it's a pirate series starring a Highlander and Jango Fett. It should be great. It's not so good. Okay, it's awful. There are giant photoshopped crabs, for goodness' sake. And here am I, a good stuntwoman and writer, and have researched pirates in detail. :sigh: What do you do? Anyone famous reading this, give me a hint as to what a girl's to do; do I really have to move to LA? say it ain't so. The geek in me has died a little. ~Jenn
