Space's Deepest Secrets Mashups

Postby elprice7345 » Tue Nov 07, 2017 1:14 pm

The Science Channel has done it again. They have started broadcasting episodes of “Space’s Deepest Secrets” (SDS) that are mashups not only of previously broadcast episodes of Space’s Deepest Secrets, but of other Science Channel shows.

They did something similar with the series “What on Earth” in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=37411

“SDS” in TVDB: https://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=season&ser ... 8753&lid=7

“SDS” on Science Channel Go site: : https://www.sciencechannelgo.com/spaces ... 728e0de2e8

As you can see from the SciGo site, season 3 has only 8 episodes.

S03E09-11 should be moved to the Specials season in order of OAD.

I don’t have TVDB S03E09, “Journey to Alien Worlds”, so I’m not sure which episodes were combined.

TVDB S03E10, “Stars from Hell”, is a mashup of S02E08, “Rise of the Monster Stars” and another Science Channel show “How the Universe Works”, S05E05, “Stars That Kill”: https://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&se ... 5425&lid=7

TVDB S03E11, “Curse of the Black Holes”, is a mashup of S02E03, “Black Holes: The Einstein Prophecy” and another Science Channel show “How the Universe Works”, S05E03, “ Black Holes: The Secret Origin”: https://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&se ... 1979&lid=7

Another “new” episode was broadcast 2017/11/05, “Riddles of the Sun”. This episode is a mashup of SDS S03E06, “The Sun's Greatest Mysteries”, and an episode from another series, “Strip the Cosmos”, S01E06, “Hunting a Comet”: https://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&se ... 4526&lid=7

Season 3 should probably be locked down after the episodes are moved.

Hey, elprice7435 I added most of these myself because just looking at the schedule they are reported as "new" episodes. After they air and you see repeated segments, I can then tell they are mashups. I agree with you on this, I just want to be sure season 3 is really done with real new episodes before it is locked down.

On side note, it's pretty impressive that you can tell which episodes and series these segment mashups come from.

@Psion20 - Thanks!

I got lucky and had the episodes in question in my video archive. I saw that they were 2 hours long, so something was suspicious and I know the Science Channel has done this type of thing before, although, I'm not sure why. Seems like it would be easier for them to just repeat the episodes?

Thanks for correcting this so quickly!

One more tweak ... S00E01 and S00E05, "Riddles of the Sun", are the same episode.

Can S00E01, be deleted and the episodes be renumbered?

"Riddles of the Sun" has the most recent OAD and so should be the most recent episode.

Good to catch this now, as we don't generally allow renumbering Specials after the first couple of months.
Strangers are just the friends we haven't met yet.
