Today, Sci-Fi Sunday for Oct Eighteenth, we have two complete episodes from season one of “Riftworld Chronicles.” If you don’t know, “Riftworld Chronicles” is an original science fiction/fantasy web series from Punchline, CBC ‘s Online Comedy Channel. It stars Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) as Alar, a dimension traveling wizard who finds himself marooned in our non-magical world. He co opts the help of Kim, a journalist played by Erin Karpluk (Being Erica) and follows them on their adventures.
All six episodes of season one are complete, and the producers are now raising funds (via Kickstarter) for season two.”Riftworld Chronicles” is our second installment in the new segment “Support your Sci-Fi,” where we feature some of the most interesting and unique science fiction media projects funded through crowd-sourcing. The concept here is this: Visit Sci-Fi Sunday and watch some of the samples of the Sci-Fi being produced. If you like what you see, and want to see more, follow the link, and get involved. Projects like Riftworld Chronicles and 5th Passenger might not have been made without the support of an enthusiastic Sci-Fi community. For just about the same amount of money you’d spend on a theater ticket, you get to contribute to the making of the sci-fi you love. Not a bad deal! With many projects, if you donate, you also get stuff… You say you want more Sci-Fi? So what are you waiting for? Start Here!
