Skyland

This is the 200th entry at 'Yours in a White Wine Sauce' - Huzzah!

I came across a rather good show today. Well the kids did, I just happened to walk past as they were watching really.

Its called "Skyland" - a PulpSF version of Aeronef!

Unlike most anime style shows, its not Japanese, but a joint French and Canadian venture. Briefly, it set in the 23rd Century, the Earth has been shattered into chunks of rock which now float around a core. There are some rather right wing chaps called the sphere, some renegade style pirates, some kind of mystics, most importantly lots of cool flying ships and battles. very transportable to a VSF setting, just insert Prussian, Anarchists and cultists respectively.

This the the St Nazaire, the man pirate vessel in the show. Actually, its much more Neffish in the show than this rather poor picture. It looks more like somethig out of Star Blazers here (not that that is bad, just not aeronef-like).

As well as the series there is a movie currently in preproduction and scheduled for release late next year.


You can read more aout the show and its characters here: ttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skyland And there is a rather well done website here: http://www.skylandtv.com/


Let me know what you think!
