    The Entwives were the female counterparts to Treebeard and the Ents. They loved gardens and orchards instead of the wild woods and moved further and further away from the wild woods to make their orchards and gardens, but during the earlier battles with Sauron’s minions they were driven away/destroyed (this is kinda ambiguous) and their gardens were destroyed as well. The area became known as the brown lands, where little grew. Treebeard actually sings a song about the Entwives in the book and asks Merry and Pippin to bring word if they ever heard where they went. Without the Entwives there are no Entings (baby Ents) and therefore the Ents are a dying breed.

    Sorry for length! Does that explain everything?

    Oh – and Merry and Pippin didn’t go to the undying lands. They went to Gondor to live out their lives. Aragorn stayed in Middle Earth as well. That was the whole point of Arwen staying with him – she gave up her chance. He decided to die when he felt the time was right (as his people could do) and she outlived him, eventually going to Lothlorien, which is now empty. She dies there. Legolas went cause he was an elf, Gimili was allowed to go as a friend of the elves, the only Dwarf EVER to go. Sam was allowed to go cause he was a ring bearer even for a short while. That ok?

    Oooh…that’s a hard one. Let me think 😕

    (In no particular order)

    1. G’Kar and Londo – a great double act, have to count them as one. I loved the bit where they were trapped in the lift together. Could be really funny but also quite touching.

    2. Gizmo from Gremlins. He drove a car! He’s so cute! His spawn is evil! 😆

    3. Wolverine. I’ve loved him since I was about 6. He’s just so cool. Plus he has the whole adamantium skeleton thing going on. Means he’s a New Romantic.

    4. Buffy. Yes, I know, probably not cool but I really liked Buffy especially from Season 4 onwards. After she died she became really cool.

    5. Ripley. According to a member of my family, she’s the coolest character EVER (not my words). And she allegedly had the best line in a movie ever – “Get away from her you bitch.”. And if I don’t vote for her I’ll be evicted!

    Ooh…that’s a hard one!

    I’d have to say (in no particular order):

    1) The Gentlemen from Buffy (Hush). Just realy creepy!

    2) The Master from Doctor Who. For some reason I always wanted him to win!

    3) The Shadows from B5 – sneaky and underhanded. Perfect!

    4) Scorpius from Farscape. Just because.

    5) Mom from Futurama. That woman is great!

    And since he’s no longer a villian, my award for best-guy-who-was-a-villian-but-he’s-better-now, goes to Spike from Buffy. I love that guy!

    My personal email address has been spam free for about 5 years but that’s only cos I sign up for very little – like here, a daily dilbert comic and Bill Bailey’s newsletter. That’s it.

    My dad’s email got out somehow though…and it’s a nightmare. When you open up the email it get about 90 messages and they’re all spam. We did have a spam filter at one point but it kept deleteing ebay messages (real ones….not the “please put in your credit card number and pin number ones!).

    If anyone here reads the Fortean Times, there is an article this month on a guy who thinks aliens are trying to contact us through spam 😯 . Why they want to attract us with “You won’t BELIEVE what these girls do!!!!!!!!!!!!” kind of messages nobody knows. 😕

    Sorry for length (I think that appeared in an email too… 😉 )

    I have to admit I liked it…I thought it was pretty cool. Ok so it was hardly Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal, but it was fun.

    It could be due to the big announcement on the front page:

    BANDWIDTH PROBLEMS

    The server has been clobbered by picture downloaders (mostly non-members and non-contributors) this month and the site risks being closed until April because I am reaching my 43Gb bandwidth limit (already!). So unfortunately, until further notice, the Sci Fi Downloads section has been Dissabled.

    Favourite Sci-Fi has to be:

    1) Babylon 5
    2) Farscape
    3) Red Dwarf
    4) Futurama
    5) Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
    6) Outer Limits (Old!)
    7) Stargate SG-1
    8 ) Star Trek (TOS)
    9) Doctor Who
    10) Land of the Giants (yes I know 🙄 )

    Worst Sci Fi? Eeep…going to get flamed for this!

    1) (worst) – Twin Peaks (Maybe I was too young to enjoy it?)
    2) Dark Shadows (Don’t know if anyone remembers it? Used to be on the Sci-Fi channel in the UK…really enjoyably bad!)
    3) Andromeda
    4) Space Precinct

    Don’t know how many of these count as sci fi and I can’t think of any more! May edit later if I think of some!

    Koyaanisqatsi and it’s (kind of) sequel Powwaqatsi are superb. There’s a fairly new one out as well called Naqoyqatsi, about globalisation and the modern world.

    Hi!

    I’m new here, but a big B5 fan. I don’t know if this has been posted before, or even if it’s relevant but this is the word from JMS himself:

    “To the many questions that have arisen here of late…yes, as I mentioned
    before, there is the possibility of something Babylon 5 related on the horizon,
    but again I don’t want anyone getting excited until we know if either one of
    these two projects is going to actually come to fruition. We should know where
    this lands in the next few weeks. The only thing I will say is that they’re
    not print projects, so if you were to assume it’s for TV or film you wouldn’t
    be too far off…but that neither of them are series. And that’s all I’m going
    to say about them for now.”

    So there you go
