Mammoth on SciFi Tonight. Summer Glau's SciFi channel original movie Mammoth is being shown again tonight in the US.

I know I missed it the first time around, and was bummed. I figured that it would be good to give everyone a reminder!

This movie is good, silly, silly fun, with our Ms. Glau playing the daughter of an absent-minded scientist. Remember it's a comedy, and you'll have a great time -- I sure enjoyed it! :-)
Summer is much too talented for this.
I liked the movie. It was more or less funny; you can certainly do worse with one of those "Sci-Fi Original" movies.
Actually, this is pretty above par for a Sci-Fi Channel flick. Which is sad.
I thought it was a hoot! I like a good campy film once in awhile and this certainly was that. They didn't seem to take themselves too seriously and seemed to have a lot of fun with it.
Did anybody work out what the Gorilla Man was about?
Think he was a singing happy birthday telegram gorilla. It was Summer's character's birthday remember

Oh, Tom's face when the mask fell off. HA!

Rivergirl, please check your posts for grammar and punctuation in future.
I hope Mammoth gets picked up by the Canadian "Space" channel. I would really like to see the movie!
Yep, I still very much want to see this too. It sounds like a lot of fun.
Well, I watched last night with my wife. We enjoyed it well enough. It was very campy and it made fun of itself a lot, which was good. And hey, you can't beat a movie that has a giant, alien, undead, ninja mammoth hunting Summer, can you? Well, I guess a movie about a giant, bumbling government hunting Summer was a little better. *Ducks for flying spears*
I'll be happier with Summer working again on The 4400.
That mammoth sure could neak around a lot for such a big and noisy fella. Silly fun on this movie, and Summer was a hoot. She even gave a few River looks, if you know what I mean, and I think you do.

Which she's doing, by the way - she's returning this season I heard. I don't know if it's made Whedonesque yet or not.
gossi: it was reported here, that's how I first heard about it.

As for The 4400, I thought the first, short (5 episodes?) season was quite good, and set up some intrigue and an interesting premise. Unfortunately I thought season 2 sucked majorly (despite a Summer guest spot), and I had decided I wouldn't watch it anymore. Now Summer 's going to be in it for more episodes in season 3 I think I'll have to watch it again, but only for her.
Huh, always good to see differeing opinions on the black. I thought the mini season was so so but the 2nd season excellent and I can't wait for s3.
