Simply Stating The Obvious is having it’s first contest and it’s a good one.  Read on…

Serious Science fiction fans of all ages are no doubt familiar with the Michael Crichton novel, The Andromeda Strain.  It was destined to become one of the great classics in Science fiction writing.  Then in 1971 it was made into a movie starring Arthur Hill, David Wayne, James Olson, and Kate Reid.  Like the book before it, this movie has long since been considered a classic work of science fiction.

Now some 37 years later A&E has taken up the task of remaking this classic story.  This version is starrring: Benjamin Bratt, Eric McCormack, Christa Miller, Daniel Dae Kim, Viola Davis, Ricky Schroder, and Andre Braugher.

This version will be airing as a four hour event over two nights, Monday, May 26, 2008 and Tuesday, May 27, 2008 from 9-11 PM Eastern.  With this version being nearly twice as long and having access to SFX and other production techniques that weren’t possible when the original was made… It ought to be great.
