Black Woman in Space: Set Your Tivo to Watch "Virtuality" on FOX!



I know, I know...it's completely off-topic but rarely do we see a sci-fi show on TV that acknowledges that black women exist in the future so I'm excited. The premise sounds odd (see below) but I'm tired of watching old episodes of Firefly so I hope this can fill the void and Joy Bryant has a decent role. Unfortunately, the show is on FOX, which means that it will probably be canceled quickly.

The two-hour premiere airs on FOX on June 26th at 8 p.m.

From io9:

The crew of the Phaeton is approaching the go/no-go point of their epic 10-year journey through outer space. With the fate of Earth in their hands, the pressure is intense. The best bet for helping the crew members maintain their sanity is the cutting-edge virtual reality technology installed on the ship. It's the perfect stress-reliever until they realize a glitch in the system has unleashed a virus on to the ship. Tensions mount as the crew decides how to contain the virus and complete their mission. Meanwhile, their lives are being taped for a reality show back on Earth.

****On a side note, I haven't been posting much lately. My family and I are expecting another baby in August so the blog will probably be slow to update for awhile. There is plenty of good stuff to read on my blogroll, so please check out those links! Thanks!*******

Joy looks waaaaaaay different. I didn't even recognize her, I thought that it was an up and coming actress.
