I’ve been following the progress of Mercury Men for years, and now it’s finally complete, and ready for you to check out thanks to a webisode deal struck with the SyFy Channel.

Invasion – The Mercury Men

Edward Borman becomes trapped when deadly creatures from the planet Mercury overrun his office building, killing anyone in their path.

    Looks good, but I have problems giving SyFy any views after their wacky decision to withhold new episodes of their series till the end of season. EUREKA, WAREHOUSE 13 are my favorite shows but I don’t use cable and don’t want to wait till sometime in 2012 (after all the spoilers have hit the web) and then try to find time to watch an entire season.

    I wish networks would figure out that Neilson ratings are no longer a valid measure of who’s watching what. SyFy shows are predominantly geek shows, and we watch on Hulu or iTunes or by pirating. Geeks like to watch when they want to instead of having to be planted in front of the tv at a certain hour. I refuse to reward their greed and stupidity by paying for iTunes, and I’m not a pirate, but Hulu was an excellent medium. Even with paid Hulu Plus we have to watch commercials so SyFy still profits, and Hulu can tell them and their sponsors exactly how many hits their shows get instead of random household samplings.

    All i can see coming of this is loss of SyFy’s fan base, failure to build an audience for new series like ALPHAS, increased pirating and the eventual demise of SyFy and the loss of some beautiful shows.

    But maybe all SyFy really wants is to ditch those pesky, you know, science fiction shows so they can run more wrestling and cooking and paranormal junk.

    yeah, it’s not visible in my area either. I’m in Canada. Guess they don’t want Canadians watching. Do we know if this might be available somewhere we can access it?

    I’ve been following this for a couple years and am eager to see the final results.

      You might check iTunes. Under the television section you can buy all of the episodes as a “season” for $2.99. I’m a fan of this project, so I went ahead and purchased the season pass, which includes two episodes that are 41 and 33 minutes each (so the entire movie). It’s not HD (bummer), but whatever it takes to support the cause.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
