20011Even for a generation-x’er such as myself, I grew up and idolized Arthur C. Clarke, especially the 2001 series of books, which is why I was somewhat intrigued when I read that the Syfy channel was not only making a mini-series out of 3001, but also making a movie(?) out of Childhood’s End. I say intrigued because the Syfy channel has been batting a thousand lately in putting out crap in terms of both movies and television shows. So it remains to be seen if either of these projects will see the light of day, especially since the Syfy channel has pledged to put out more science fiction related content but has yet to really act on that promise.
