...That's what I said when Doctor Who jumped out off a spaceship and managed to crash right through the centre of the glass roof and land on the hard floor perfectly between the Master and the Time lords of Galafrey, without squishing himself, "that's a bit far-fetched", my young lad just looked at me and said "as opposed to time-travel, Daleks, Cybermen, planets made of giant spider-webs etc, etc?" I take his point of course, it's just...well, how did he time that jump right from a spaceship?
"Is it because you think it's all too trivial and other folk should share your own cultural tastes?" Absolutely not, as you say, each to his/ her own. Maybe I am getting too much like Victor Meldrew! I used to like Sci Fi once, in the days of HG Wells and Edgar Rice Burroughs, but find it difficult these days . Somehow a book seems more believable than a film or TV show. Anyway I honestly have no wish to impugn others values!!
On the same subject. A fiend and myself were at a SC-FI movie a few years ago (waterworld I think, yes that long ago)and on the way out a girl behind us asked her male companion if he had enjoyed the movie, he replied "it was OK but a bit far fetched" my friend and myself just looked at each other and burst out laughing. If it had not been 'far fetched' I would have wanted my money back.
