Catch some SF on Australian TV or Online

In lieu of a review this month, we’ve got a round-up of upcoming or shortly expiring TV of the speculative persuasion. 

Paradox, a British science fiction police drama starring Tamsin Outhwaite, starts 17th of August on UKTV (Pay TV). It was cancelled after 1 season but might be worth a look.

Spaced, the geek-friendly comedy series starring Simon Pegg, is currently available on ABC TV’s iView. Episode 1 won’t expire for over a fortnight, so if you’ve never seen this fun series, go and check it out.

Also on iView is Zombie Hotel, an animated children's program about a hotel run by zombies. Episode 1 will expire in a week. The Iron Man series reviewed this month is also available, but starting with episode 10. In fact, iView’s Kids section is packed with sf. Well worth a visit.

True Blood Season 3 starts showing on Showtime on the 19th and will be available on iTunes soon after (there’s two “extras” up there now).

Two other series, not sf but of interest, are Human Target (loosely based on a comic book series) and Spartacus: Blood and Sand, starting August 18th on Go!
