Warehouse 13 is making like the subject of most of their reality shows and becoming a ghost; and I am beyond pissed. Syfy announced today that Warehouse 13 will be back for a 5th and final season next summer. I don’t get why the show that has been a constant success for them is being given a final season. I mean do we need another staged paranormal show on the network? I think not. We need more good original programming and in the last year they have cancelled 1/2 of their watchable original shows and replaced them with the duds. Shows like Eureka, Warehouse 13, Haven and Being Human have made the network what it is today. Not shows like Paranormal Something or Haunted Something Else. Stop importing shows from Canada that lose their spark after the first season and keeps the ones you are making on the air that continue to deliver great television.
Giving Warehouse 13 a final season is the dumbest thing the network has done since it renamed itself Syfy. Years later people still don’t know if it is SyFy or Syfy.
You want us to Imagine Greater, well I imagine the greater shows staying on your air instead of the fake shows you call reality!
Long live Warehouse 13 and the wonderful cast and crew who continue giving us great TV until someone turns the lights off next summer.
So in the meantime give Syfy a big FU and watch Warehouse 13 every Monday at 10p, and make them regret their decision. Which they should.
Tonight at 10p on Syfy’s Warehouse 13 Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (JoAnne Kelly) go where they have never gone before. Not back in time or remote another on earth, but an artifact that transcends and traps them into a Noir novel. How will will they write their way out of there not so swell predicament? We will have tune in for the episode that Eddie McClintock described as “the funnest episode that we shot in the series.”
I recently spoke with the incredible talented and funny actor at the NBCU Summer Press Day and we talked about the making of this episode. He told me that they really cared about making the Noir scenes look authentic to the genre. He explained “It is shot in black and white and it is all done with the same lenses that they used back in the day. So it just doesn’t look like a colored show that is black and white. It is even lit as a Noir episode and such.”
And it wasn’t only the visual likeness that they were focusing on during this episode. There was something else that the actors had to do that was a lot of fun for them and will be fun for us to see. He said, “What was interesting is in those scenes Myka and Pete would have to speak in Film Noir speech. Then if someone would walk out of the room, we would go back to (normal) Pete and Myka. As soon as they came back in we would have to go back to Film Noir speak. It was a good acting exercise for us too.”
Then Eddie told me, see, that he thinks, “the fans are really going to dig it.” And I think for him to say that this is the funnest episode he has worked on in the show’s 49 episodes and counting, I think we are all going to dig it as much as he does.
And if you want to see Eddie McClintock in a completely different type of role, then you are going to want to keep your eye out on his upcoming movie A Fish Story that is currently being seen at film festivals. I don’t know about you, but the trailer for it blew me away. Such an interesting story and seems like all the actors are giving their all for this movie.
Warehouse 13 is back on Syfy tonight at 10p and it picks up exactly where it left off. That means it starts with Artie’s life in flux after being stabbed by Claudia. So is the rest of the world now that orchid denigrated and it is spreading the Sweating Sickness killer plague.
It is up to the now leaderless agents to save the day. So while Myka and Pete try to save the world, Claudia (Allison Scagliotti) and Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) will try to save a comatose Artie (Saul Rubinek).
Myka (Joanne Kelly) and Pete (Eddie McClintock) discover that a Count from the 18th century used to be able to bring flowers back to life, so they are going to talk to a professor at Columbia University who knows all about him to see what he knows. Maybe he might be able to help them find the artifact that can bring that orchid back to life ending the spread of the killer plague. The professor, played by James Marsters, has a secret that will change everything for Myka and Pete and set up things for the rest of the season. I won’t tell you what it is, but I will tell you that Buffy fans that you are going to love Marsters on the show because he speaks with a British accent like Spike!
Now when it comes to Claudia and Jinks, they use an artifact that will get them inside Artie’s brain and try to wake him up. Once inside, they find out he doesn’t want them there. Will they be able to break through his barriers or will we get a new head of Warehouse 13, which might not even matter if Pete and Myka can’t bring that orchid back to life.
You will just have to tune in to find out!
And you must tune in to see Eddie McClintock really let loose and have even more fun as Pete Lattimer. Even though he will be giving us some of his great improved, perfectly-time, one-liners, tonight’s episode is a little more on the serious than the others because of the subject matters. So I asked him what it is like to do such an intense episode last week at the NBCU Summer Press Day. He told me, “Since we are kind of a light show, doing the dark stuff is a welcome change. We never lose sight of the fact that we like to have fun as well.” And they do both in this exciting season premiere on Syfy at 9p.
Tonight at 9p is the season finale of Being Human on Syfy and it ties up a lot this season’s storylines and sets up for the next one.
We find out what the Vampires, who have been drinking Werewolves’ blood, have been turning the people they’ve changed into. What will Aiden do to Kenny now that he knows the truth?
Sally wakes up next to her dead self and a living person will find her rotting body in the bed. How will they explain why a decomposing corpse is just lying there? And have we seen the last of Donna? Did the three roommates really defeat her once and for all?
Meanwhile Nora and Josh don’t really get to enjoy their wedded bliss because Liam stops by and he has vengeance on his mind. That and Josh is preparing to turn back in a werewolf again for the first time since he killed his maker and got scratched by Liam.
So much happens in this episode you don’t want to miss a single of this episode that a nail biter from the beginning until the end.
Back in 1836 The Alamo survived an epic battle and tonight at 9p on Syfy it will partake in another one called Chupacabra vs. The Alamo. Will it as be lucky this time? You will have to tune in for this mythological horror movie that stars Erik Estrada as the man that will try to take down this killer urban legends that have invaded The Alamo. There is a reason why people are afraid of the Chupacabras even though no one has seen them, that is before this bloody movie.
Chupacabra vs. The Alamo is a lot fun and suspenseful at the same time.
If you are looking for a drinking game, drink every time a Chupacabra kills someone and you will be drunk before you know it.
On March 23rd Erik Estrada is starring in his first Syfy movie Chupacabra vs The Alamo and it looks brilliant. It has everything you want a from a Syfy Saturday night movie a legendary heartthrob, a famous location and mythical creatures that tear people apart. What more do you need to tune in?
The Haunted Collector is back on Syfy tonight at 9p and this season they are bringing more emotion in to their investigations. While most paranormal shows are about just about looking into to seeing if there is anything paranormal going on, The Haunted Collector is about that and the people who called John Zaffis look in to their case.
As John explained recently on a conference call, “It’s helping the people, reaching out to them, being able to connect with them and hopefully trying to bring some resolution on several of the different investigations that we encountered, that we were involved with. To me that’s going to be the most important thing.” And that is what we are going to get with the 24 locations they look into this season.
Starting tonight when they go to a barn in Upstate NY and the current owner thinks the past one is haunting the place and killing off her horses. John and investigators will find out if the cause is paranormal or part of this world. But watching the woman going through it all makes this show so much better than the other ones like it.
I love paranormal investigation shows, but I find myself watching more for the architecture and backstory of the place than the case itself. With The Haunted Collector, I am watching more for the case than anything else. That is what these shows should be like and I am glad that one of them finally got it right.
So tune in tonight and every week at 9p to see what John Zaffis and his team encounter next.
The night starts off at 8p with an episode of The CW’s Arrow that will leave you gasping every few minutes. Just when you think they can’t shock you anymore they surprise you again. Tommy’s (Colin Donnell) dad Malcolm (John Barrowman) invites his son to an event that he is being honored at, but he hesitates until Oliver (Stephen Amell) convinces him to go after a heart-to-heart conversation. A decision Oliver will later regret because an assassin has his Deadshot (Michael Rowe) eye on taking out Malcolm and Arrow will have to go in to try to save the day. By the end of the night Tommy and Oliver’s friendship will be changed forever and they will not be able to get back to where they were once at. Think that is enough to get you to want more, it is just preparation for the evening’s final reveal… So make sure to tune in for a game changing episode because so much happens that you can’t miss a single shocking moment.
Then at 8:30p NBC’s Guys with Kids stages a Cosby Show reunion when Marny’s (Tempestt Bledsoe) irresponsible younger sister Bridget (Keshia Knight Pulliam) comes for a visit. Instead of just giving her money, Marny decides that her sister should work for her husband to earn the dough. Gary (Anthony Anderson) is against this for obvious reasons. Is he right or will his sister in law actually wind up helping him? Meanwhile Chris (Jesse Bradford) and Sheila (Erinn Hayes) decide to have another baby even though they are divorced. Something his best friend, Nick (Zach Cregger) is vehemently against. Luckily for him Chris’ ex-girlfriend Sage comes back into the picture and now he will have to choose which ex to be with. The season finale ends with Gary singing a Kelly Clarkson song and let’s just say it doesn’t suck and neither does this great episode!
Then at 9p on TNT Donnie Wahlberg honors the people his brother and him spent a lot of unwanted time in their youth with and they are Boston’s Finest. It is inside look at entire Boston Police Department, including patrol officers, detectives, special task forces and members of the SWAT Team, the Fugitive Unit and highly decorated Gang Unit. Besides following them as they fight crime, we get to see what their lives are like when the badge comes off. In a way it is like the reality version Wahlberg’s CBS show, but set in Boston. You really go along for the ride with them and after you watch it you will want to tip your hat to these brave men and women. Wahlberg really gives these people the respect they deserve with this series.
Then at 10p Psych is back on USA and it picks up exactly where it left off. Shawn (James Roday) arrives just as his father Henry (Corbin Bersen) was shot. Now it is up to him to save his dad and get the man responsible for shooting him. Even though Jules (Maggie Lawson) and Lassie (Timothy Omundson) tell Shawn to sit this case out, he doesn’t listen. Will Shawn get himself into a situation he can’t get out of and does his dad survive? You will have to tune into find out!
Finally at 10p Stranded makes it debut on Syfy at 10p and this is an interesting twist on ghost hunter shows. Each week four everyday people will be sent to a location for 5 days to investigate if it is really haunted. They will be cut off from the world meaning no phones, no computers and no way to leave, and they will have nothing to do to but find out if there are any ghosts with them. They will be given the equipment to find out if they are alone or not and what they discover will not only spook them, it will do the same to you. I loved Stranded so much that when it gets picked up for a second season, I am so going to try to be on it.
Remember when you were younger and you played Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em ROBOTS with your friends? Well Syfy’s Robot Combat League that debuts tonight at 10p is the adult version of that board game. Each week 12 teams of two will battle it out in the ring with lifesize robots and the teams with the highest and lowest scores compete at the end of the show with a robot they made. The winner of each show goes on to the finale and compute, I mean compete to win the $100,000 grand prize. But the money is inconsequential when the teams realize they just played their favorite childhood board game with real robots made out of metal and not plastic!
So tune in for a game show that grown child boy wishes they could be a contestant on.
Tonight at 9p End of the World crashes down on Syfy and you don’t want to miss the disaster movie to end all disaster movies.
Owen Stokes (Greg Grunberg) and Steve Palmer (Neil Grayston) work in a video store and have watched every disaster movie ever made. Because of that they have been preparing for the end of the world. Then one day their dream will come crashing down as electric meteors hurl towards earth destroying everything and everyone in its path. It is up to them, Owen’s girlfriend Selena (Caroline Cave) and Steve’s mom (Merrilyn Gann) to stop the apocalypse. In order to that they will need to free mad scientist Dr. Walter Brown (Brad Dourif) from a mental institution because he knows how to end it. But with time running out and meteors destroying their path, their movie might not have a happy ending.
Tune in to see if watching disaster movies is the best doomsday prepper that anyone can ask for in this fun movie that airs on Syfy tonight at 9p.
Recently I was on a call with some of the cast and talked about some of the fun times they had making the movie.
Owen’s cousin Max (Mark Hildreth) is a douche who is trying to steal Selena away from him. In one scene the cousins battle it out and Greg Grunberg explained how much fun that scene was to film when Hildreth took it to a Three Stooges level. He said, “So you kind of go oh the next take I want to make it funnier and funnier and I’m going to go bigger and louder and it just got so ridiculous. It was a little bit of it in there though I got to say like I was happy.” Then he added, “I thought oh god these guys, you know, Syfy fans that run a, you know, an apocalyptic video store. The last guys who know how to fight or how to really protect themselves. You know, so it was such a sloppy, fun moment.”
This movie also helped to give Neil Grayston some much needed revenge for something that scared him when he was kid. He described a scene he did with Dourif, “There’s a certain point where I don’t drive manual in real life like I have before, but it always seems to be in the weirdest vehicles. Either it’s a crazy super powered sort of expensive vehicle like a Subaru WRX or it’s this van that we had that at a certain point was only running because one of the teamsters went underneath it with a bungee cord and did something, I don’t know. But somehow the engine was being held together with a bungee cord and there’s a certain point where I have to drive the van and I think that was maybe our first scene together Brad and there’s no seatbelts—there’s nothing—and I just sort of accelerated and kept on going because I was like I don’t want to stall this van on this take. We don’t have much time left in the day. Then the Eureka star added, “I think I might have given Brad a heart attack. But you know what? I was thinking about it. I think that’s payback for me being terrified by Chucky as a child but I’m just going to say that.” To which his childhood tormentor responded by saying “Good for you. I’m very glad I f*cked your childhood up. That’s my job.”
So look out for these scenes and many more fun ones tonight in End of the World on Syfy at 9p.
