Richie Sambora is in the Thicke of it! |
| November 13th, 2013 under Alan and Robin Thicke, Bon Jovi, Strange Encounters, Syfy. [ Comments: none ]
Nigel Lythgoe Tweeted this picture of himself with Richie Sambora and Alan Thicke and it is one of the strangest encounters I have ever seen. So strange, I want Sambora and Bon Jovi to get over their difference ASAP and rejoin the band. Actually I just want the Jersey band to get over their Bad Medicine and reunite already because all four of them are the band, not just the three of them.
Naked Vegas uses the body as a canvas and Doomsday Preppers are prepping! |
| October 29th, 2013 under National Geographic, Syfy. [ Comments: none ]
At 10p, Syfy takes it all off for Naked Vegas and then covers it back up with paint, body paint that is! The reality show documents the company called Naked Vegas that uses body paint to dress people up. On tonight’s season premiere they put lingerie on models and dress a bride and groom up as Zombies along with their wedding party. Imagine seeing a bride wearing body paint from head to toe walking down the aisle. It is as breathtaking as you expect it to be.
So tune in for a show that is unlike anything you can watch on television. In addition, it has the word naked in the title!
A few weeks ago the Government shut down for two weeks and several Doomsday Preppers have been prepping for that exact moment. Tonight at 9p on NatGeo, you will see one guy prep for just that type of scenario. He will force his daughter to learn what to do when America suffers from a financial collapse and he will wind up injuring her. So much so, they rush her to the doctor.
Prepping can be a dangerous thing, but it can also prepare you for the unforeseeable. Another family in Alaska is preparing for a Tsunami, but a wildfire interrupts their plans. Will all their hard work be for nothing or are they prepared unlike everyone else who is in the fire’s path?
You have to watch to find out and to learn some things you can do to prep for a disaster. Let’s be real, it can happen anywhere at any time because it was a year ago that Sandy struck the Northeast.
Syfy has a Fangasm and Chicago Fire is in trouble! |
| September 24th, 2013 under NBC, Syfy. [ Comments: 1 ]
Tonight at 10p on Syfy 7 geeks move into a house and compete for an internship with Stan Lee. That position is a Fangasm for these 7 roommates and they will do what they can to get that job. As they await to find out the answer, they will do different challenges to prove how big of a fan they are as they get rewards for proving their love for all things geekdom.
Tonight they try to get people to sign a petition for a National Geek Appreciation Day, and they forget one key element. Will that hurt them? You will have to tune into find out.
Then they compete for an opportunity to have dinner with the one and only George Takei. There is one guy who is such a big fan of Star Trek that he is willing to endure a lot of pain just for the chance to meet his idol. It is mind over matter, but will matter win?
What I like most about Fangasm is they picked people you can actually like. Other shows in this genre pick at least one person with anger issues and bitter, and that makes the show less enjoyable. On this one, they all get along and work together. Because of that I sincerely enjoyed it and I know you will too. And you are going to love Andrew, he looks the nerdiest one of them all and he’s the only one with a girlfriend. With in a few minutes of getting to know him, you will see why that is the case. Not saying that the other ones deserve to be single, but you are just going to adore everything about him.
Meanwhile over at NBC, Chicago Fire is back tonight at 10p and their house might not be around for much longer. Due to city cutbacks, Firehouse 51 is on the short list to be closed down. Even though their days might be number, they will be getting some firefighters from a recently closed house. That means things are going to be tight for them, like shared lockers and no overtime. They are not happy about these changes and that will force one of them to make a decision that can totally change things for everyone.
There is something about Chicago Fire that makes this show so much different than other shows about firefighters. It just as much about the fires as it is the relationships between them and because that you find yourself tuning in every week. This is a show that will be around long time just like Dick Wolf’s other shows that never seem to go away!
Haven is back, and so are the Troubles? |
| September 13th, 2013 under Syfy. [ Comments: 1 ]
Haven is back on Syfy tonight at 10p and we find out what happened to Duke and Audrey after they went into the barn house.
The show picks up 6 months after the season finale and Duke (Eric Balfour) resurfaces in the Boston Aquarium swimming with the fishes. Everyone back in Haven assumed that Audrey (Emily Rose) and him died that day, so his sudden return confuses everyone back home.
Since he has been gone Nathan (Lucas Bryant) has left the force and he’s in a dark place outside of Haven. That is until he sees Duke and decides to get his life together. He does that because Duke’s reappearance gives him hope that Audrey is still alive even though no one has seen or heard from her since that day.
Duke and Audrey might have been gone for 6 months, but the Troubles never went away. In fact they are back even worse than they were before that day.
So when Nathan and Duke show up in Haven, people want them back fighting the Troubles but they are not sure they want to do it again.
They want to find Audrey, but she doesn’t know who she is. She’s working at a bar and thinks her name is Lexie Dewitt. But a stranger (Colin Ferguson) is about to remind her who she is and hopefully this time she will be able to get rid of the Troubles once and for all. Only problem it comes with a pretty high cost.
This season Haven is upping some people and adding to the cast. Bullet magnet Dwight (Adam Copeland) and untouchable Jordan (Kate Kelton) are now running the police force and Duke’s brother, Wade (Christian Carmago) is managing the bar. It will be interesting to see what they add to the show which I am sure will be good. Because this is one Syfy show that never gets it wrong.
So if you are a fan of the show the season premiere is a must watch. If you never seen the show, tonight is as good as any night to start watching the show that gets better with each season!
Real Fear: The Truth Behind More Movies gives you real fear as you watch it! |
| September 6th, 2013 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]
Tonight at 9p on Chiller TV, paranormal investigators Richard Dolan, Katrina Weidman, John McGarry, Chris Holt and Becky Weingrad investigate the true stories behind some of our favorite horror movies in Real Fear: The Truth Behind More Movies.
We all know that The Haunting in Connecticut is based on a true story; and tonight we find what really happened in that house, who it really happened to and how it differs from the movie that scared us sh!tless.
Then they travel to Arizona and talk to the man whose story was told in the 1993 movie Fire in the Sky. Travis Walton relives his time aboard the spaceship and how his experience differs from what happened in the movie. He also details what scene was more horrifying in the movie than it was for him in real life. You’ll never watch the movie the same way.
Now I didn’t know that there was a real life incident like the one that was featured in Nightmare on Elm Street 3 and they go to the asylum that the film is based on. I thought Freddy Kruger was just someone’s dream, but turns out he was really a living nightmare.
Finally The Blair Witch Project is loosely based on the Jersey Devil urban legend and they will go to the remote forest where the myth was born. Within a short time, they realize that some things are better left on the big screen than experiencing it for themselves.
And what we get to experience is two hours of interesting television that will change the way watch horror movies based on real life forever. Seriously this special blew me away, it is the best one I’ve ever seen on Chiller TV so far.
Ghost Shark will make you wet! |
| August 22nd, 2013 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]
Tonight at 7p Syfy is repeating the Twitter hit Sharknado, then at 9p they are debuting Ghost Shark that is going to be a hit around the water cooler! This will make sense when you watch the movie that you know you want to watch.
When a father and daughter try to catch the biggest fish so they can win a prize of $30,000, they lose out on the money when a shark eats it. So they blow him up, but he comes back as a ghost and kills them for revenge.
That ghost shark doesn’t stop with them, he will eat anyone, anywhere as long as there is water involved. So that means you are not safe taking a bath, in the rain or even drinking it.
So now it is up that fisherman’s daughter (Mackenzie Rosman) and her friends to stop the ghost shark. Problem is the town sheriff and the mayor don’t believe them. The two men are also trying to protect the town from the bad press, so they are trying to stop the teens from doing whatever they are planning on doing.
Luckily the town crazy, Finch (Richard Moll), believes them and he might know how to exorcise the ghost shark, but will it work?
You will have to tune into find out, and also for a killer ghost shark that doesn’t discriminate who he chomps down. So be prepared for some awesome bloody deaths, that will leave you laughing and squirming at the same time.
Ghost Shark is in on the joke and it has to be because look at the title of the movie! To me when a horror film knows it is not to be taken seriously and they go for it, that is the recipe for a movie that will grab hold of you hook, line and sinker.
A few days ago I was on a conference call with the writer/director, Griff Furst, and he told us that it took him 6 months and three different story lines before Syfy and him agreed this was the one to make. The third time was truly the charm for this killer movie.
On that note, there truly are some awesome kills in this movie, When I asked which one was his favorite, he said “I’ve loved a lot of deaths and I like a lot of them.” Then he got more specific with, “I think I probably like the deaths in the montage because they come so fast and in consecutive order. I don’t want to give the specifics of any deaths, but there is a montage somewhere about midway through the film where a bunch of people get it right in a row, so I quite like that moment.” He’s right several people will meet their maker when they swim with the Ghost Shark, although none of them were swimming at the time…
Now when it comes to the film’s star, Richard Moll, it was more about a death he didn’t like. He said, “I know mine’s the least favorite because it means I won’t be in the sequel. So that’s the way I look at it.” Although he could back for the prequel, something that was discussed between the two men. Although not with Syfy…just yet.
Now while we know that a ghost shark is not real, the elements of where they shot was like a horror movie in itself. You see, Moll told us they shot in a swampy area in Louisiana at midnight and there were surrounded by snakes and possibly little alligators. Furst gave us something to look out for tonight, “In the film, when you hear a character say, ‘Watch out for snakes,’ that was kind of our inside joke because the place was filled with snakes.” What made the conditions worse for them is that they started shooting about two weeks after Hurricane Isaac hit the area. So they had to have people going around in boots with shovels and rakes trying to scare the snakes away.
Who knows maybe Griff will be working on a movie with snakes that kill the people who work on flick about a ghost shark?
But until then you can watch Ghost Shark tonight on Syfy at 9p, a flick that will leave afraid of water. So much so that Moll told us that since he filmed it, “I haven’t taken a shower since then.”
Heroes of Cosplay is an like a beauty pageant for adult geeks! |
| August 13th, 2013 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]
So there is a world where people dress up as their favorite characters and compete against each other at different conventions. Tonight at 10:30p Syfy takes a look at the Heroes of Cosplay and you get to hear why they do it in the 6-part series. You will also get to see how much effort goes into to putting their looks together and it is a lot of work and costly. See how hard it is for them to compete in the contests, and also hard it is for the judges to pick the winners.
This is a lifestyle that many people take seriously and it is really interesting to see all the steps they go through to make it happen. It really is like Toddlers & Tiaras meets Project Runway but with adult geeks.
Check it out because you never know, you might have found your next new hobby!
Sharknado 2 gets a title and it’s bad one, and not even a good bad one. |
| August 8th, 2013 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]
As soon as Sharknado started airing on Syfy it became a huge viral hit and now the biggest movie in the Twitterverse has a sequel coming out next July. Today Syfy and The Asylum announced the title for the movie and it is..wait for it…Sharknado 2: The Second One. Are you f*cking kidding me? All of those suggestions that people sent in on Twitter and that is the best they can come up with? Maybe they will change minds because that title sucks harder than a tornado that can suck up sharks from the ocean like in the cult movie.
Sharknado will chomp down on the Big Apple! |
| July 17th, 2013 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]
Sharknado 2 is coming! Sharknado 2 is coming! After the huge social media success of Sharknado, Syfy announced they are swimming with the flying sharks again. The flipping film will move cross country and take place in NYC where no one will be safe!
Since Sharknado was a Twitter hit, they want you to help come up with a name for the sequel. All you have to do is send your title suggestion to @SyfyMovies using #Sharknado in the Tweet.
Here are some of mine:
Sharknado 2: The Great White Shark Way
Sharks vs Jets on the West Side
Central Shark Park (Park optional)
New Shark City
What are some of the names you have come up with for the anticipated flick!
BTW if you missed on the original airing of the movie everyone is talking about, then you can watch it on Syfy tomorrow at 7p.
Sharknado was a bloody Tweet! |
| July 12th, 2013 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]
Sharknado took Twitter by storm and no one was prepared for all the press that the Ian Ziering/Tara Reid/Cassie Scerbo movie was going to get via more Tweets than there were sharks in those tornadoes. In fact Syfy executive Craig Engler Tweeted, “People. #Sharknado stats: 387K social mentions (97% driven by Twitter with the top hashtags #sharknado #syfy), five thousand tweets a minute” Then he added, “There were more than 604,000 tweets about the irresistible #Sharknado from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. ET on Thurs” Dang who knew the little movie that was absurd as its name would attract the likes of Mia Farrow, Elizabeth Banks, Wil Wheaton and Shawn Ryan to name just a few of the very many. But it did and it became a viral smash that people all over the world got to enjoy together. That’s make Twitter so much fun!
BTW if you missed the movie directed by Anthony Ferrante, you can watch it on July 18th at 7p.
