Masters of Science Fiction is an American television anthology series, created by the same creators as Masters of Horror. The show debuted on ABC on August 4, 2007 at 10PM for a run of four episodes. It was originally scheduled to run in six parts, but two episodes were removed from the schedule for undisclosed reasons. The show follows a similar format as Masters of Horror, with each hour long episode taking the form of a separate short film adaptation of a story by a respected member of the science fiction community, hence the Masters in the title.

Original Air Date: 4 August 2007
In John Kessel's short story about a post-apocalyptic near future,

Thanks kia, but that screen isn't from the rip / doesn't look anything like it.

I've also restored the tag since all the important file info had been stripped. If you click the 'stats' link in a post preview, it will take you to a page where you can see and restore the original tags for files. Very helpful :)



Been waiting for this one! Had no idea it was coming so soon, gonna grab it from newsgroups right now :)

Episode one:
Director: Michael Tolkin
Writer: Michael Cassutt

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0866062/

Looks like they f*cked it up, i ain't heard of either... Cassutt is a tv episode writer with the best thing to his name being an episode of Farscape :) Michael Tolkin did Deep Impact for f*cks sake!

Looks like they arse raped this idea, cos i'm not seeing how they are master's of scifi.

The original story is written by Robert A. Heinlein... arguably one of the best "hard" science fiction writers ever. (not argued by me though.,. that honour gose to Robert Forward) Robert A. Heinlein has won like 5 or 6 hugos.

aye, but the script and directorial "talent" treatment is severely lacking in comparison to masters of horror. They don't seem to have really touched the genre.

Thanks Kia, MyK...

Been waiting too. Just saw the first one. Heinlein is not my favourite science fiction writer. He used to be when I was a kid,but I grew up...

Now what they did with it is not convinsing me at all.

Was expecting something good with real science fiction masters. Spud, you're right (it happens sometimes...).

Shit another deception.

BTW: It's Canceled

You're not going to see more than 4 eps on ABC! 6 were produced but only 4 are scheduled for broadcast. The remaining 2 eps will be on DVD and in foreign broadcast. Therefore, we may or may not see the stories that they had rights to by Bradbury, Asimov, etc. Read this article for more info...

Cancelled? :o

Oh shit, such a good show. Spud, I cry...

Seen the second. The first one was a masterpiece! I'm more than disapointed. Was expecting a lot, maybe too much...

They've shown 2 pieces of shit made from minor science fiction writers and they cancel Asimov and Bradbury... Clap Clap Clap...

And they don't give the show a chance to get an audience. They've scheduled the first episodes during summertime, when people are burning their skin and don't watch TV and now that most of us are back and glued to our screens, now that they may have a little audience, stop!

Again, Clap, Clap, Clap!

(thanks for the link, brilliant article!)

wow... i can not belive how much they screwed up that jerry ep.. omg... take one of the best AI / Human mind short stories ever written and totaly fuck it up.. oh well...

Still the core idea is still buried in there a mark of a creature being self awear is its capability to lie cheat steal and murder But it was so deeply buried in awfulness and so bluntly smashed into our faces at the end it just came off a a cheesy twilight zone twist at the end. GAY GAY GAY.....
