“From the mind behind the mega-hit Syfy show you’ve probably never heard of (EUREKA) comes a tribute to all those no-budget Syfy original movies and the “so bad, they’re good” films that inspired them. Move over Roger Corman, step back Ed Wood, make way on your weekend programming schedule Mr. Stern, because here comes Andrew Cosby’s 365 DAYS OF SCI-FI.
And it’s all happening here! Each day, your friends at CHUD will bring you a brand new bad movie pitch — the best of the worst title Cosby can come up with, no matter where he’s at or what he’s doing, rain or shine, drunk or sober. That’s a whole year of the quality concepts you’ve come to expect from the network that brought you MANSQUITO and SHARKTOPUS.”
And now… DAY FIFTY-TWO:
“In honor of the upcoming Oscars (not to mention the grand tradition of low-budget rip-off movies everywhere), I figured I’d spend the week leading up to the awards parodying a few of this year’s top contenders. Let’s get the gala ball rolling with my twisted take on David Fincher’s brilliant film, The Social Network.”

“You don’t get to 500 million planets without meeting a few aliens.”
“You don’t get to 500 million planets without meeting a few aliens.” While attempting to program the world’s most powerful social networking site, geeky MIT undergrad Clark Tucker inadvertently sends a signal into deep space, making first contact with a number of intelligent alien civilizations, one of which mistakes Facebook for a take-out menu. When the aliens come to sample Earth’s fine cuisine, Clark must join forces with some of his intergalactic online friends to stave off the invasion and somehow keep the human race from becoming yesterday’s leftovers.
Nick Says: ‘Mistakes Facebook for a take-out menu’? It ISN’T? I love this idea, especially if someone can lure musician/Die-Hard villain Sam Phillips out of retirement for the show.
