Is this the best :45 seconds to ever air on Syfy?
July 24th, 2014 under Conan O'Brien, Syfy. [ Comments: none ]

Forget the Tiffany/Debbie Gibson cat fight in Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, forget Ian Ziering cutting himself out of shark and rescuing Cassie Scerbo from inside of it in Sharknado, forget that scene in Sharknado 2 that tops that one. Conan O’Brien aired his horror movie debut on his TBS show yesterday and I’ve never seen anyone act better than he did in Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda that debuts on Syfy Saturday, August 2nd. Give him the Oscar, the Emmy, the Golden Globe, the SAG award, the Tony and the Grammy because his work in that film is a masterpiece.
I dare you to watch that and say that is not the best acting you have seen in a long time. Yes, he’s playing himself but James Van Der Beek and Matt Le Blanc have proven that it is not that easy to do, yet the red head makes it seem that way.
So press play and be prepared to have you mind blown. Heads will roll if you don’t like it.
Finally, I just have two words for Conan, “Bravo! Bravo!”

UPDATE: Here is Roger Corman, who directed the classic movie Sharktopus Vs. Pteracuda, critiquing Conan’s role in the cult classic on the TBS show yesterday!


Has Syfy jumped the shark?
July 14th, 2014 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]

Sharknado 2 is coming to Syfy on July 30th and to celebrate it they are doing a Shark Week. Unlike the one on that other cable channel, this one will include movies that are so farfetched they are awesome.
They are starting the week with Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark on the 26th. Then they will the end it on August 2nd with Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda. And of course the meat in this sharkwich is Sharknado 2. And after having seen it, I have to tell you they actually tops the first one. Which seems impossible, but somehow they did.
So to answer the question, has Syfy jumped the shark? The answer is a big whale of a no!


Warehouse 13 closes its doors tonight
May 19th, 2014 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 9p, Warehouse 13 says goodbye on Syfy, and you don’t want to miss the perfect sendoff for this brilliant show.
Mrs. Frederic lets the team know that Warehouse 13 is moving and the agents have to leave their mark in the book. That means they touch a table and their favorite moment is revealed. That moment will be left in the book for future agents to see. By seeing everyone’s most memorable, we get to know more about them.
Just when you think there is nothing left for us to find out about Artie (Saul Rubinek), Myka (Joanne Kelly), Pete (Eddie McClintock), Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) and Claudia (Allison Scagliotti), be prepared to learn something new about each one of them.
Once they have shared their memory, it is time for them to move on. By them moving on we see their future, the series wraps things up for our characters and you will be happy with each of their conclusions. One you have waited all 5 seasons to happen.
I am so sad to see Warehouse 13 go, but I am happy that ended in a way that we can all be happy with.


Ay, caramba! Warehouse 13 gets trapped in a telenovela!
May 5th, 2014 under Syfy. [ Comments: 1 ]

Today is Cinco de Mayo and what better way to celebrate it than to watch a Spanish themed episode of Warehouse 13 on Syfy at 9p.
Pete’s (Eddie McClintock) ex-girlfriend, Kelly (Paula Garcés), comes to him seeking help because her grandmother went missing. Last time she spoke to her abuela was the night before and she was watching the last episode of her favorite telenovela. Since she was such a fan of the Spanish Soap Opera, they sent her a broach that turns out to be an artifact. The broach has transported her into the telenovela and now she is part of it.
When Kelly shows the TV she watched it on to Pete and Myka (Joanne Kelly), the two women are also sucked into it. Kelly is the rich bitch and Myka is the maid. Artie (Saul Rubinek) finds an artifact that was worn by Harvey Korman, the straight man on The Carol Burnett Show, that will protect the two men from being characters on the show. But it doesn’t work, and now they are all speaking Spanish (Sí, hablamos español) and part of the show.
Will they be able to find their way out of there before the show is cancelled again or will they be stuck in there forever? You just have to tune in to find out on Warehouse 13′s best episode ever.
It is episodes like this one that piss me so off that there are two more episodes left after this one. Such a good show, it should be going on and not ending.


Warehouse 13 searches for its last artifacts starting tonight
April 14th, 2014 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 9p Warehouse 13 begins its final season and the show is going out with a lot of bangs.
The episode picks up where the 4th season finale left off. Claudia (Allison Scagliotti) is in the fight of her life to save Warehouse 13 all by herself. Will Jinx (Aaron Ashmore) and Artie (Saul Rubinek) be able to figure a way back in? Meanwhile Myka (Joanne Kelly) and Pete (Eddie McClintock) are on their way back to W13, now that she is cancer free, and they will also try to get in. Once they figure the way in, it is now time to save the place where they live in work. Will they be able to do it?
Well, I will tell you they do, and that it also set things up for the end that will leave you with a smile on your face and a tear in your eye.
Before we get to that moment there are a few good episodes left, like Claudia meeting her sister who is alive and several of our agents being transported in to a Spanish speaking novella. Si, that episode is partially in Espanol and it’s muy bueno.


Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge
March 25th, 2014 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 10p, Jim Henson’s Creature Shop is looking for a new employee and they went to Syfy to help them find that employee.
Each week 10 creature designers will compete on Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge and by the end of the competition only one of them will be offered a job of a lifetime. We will watch the 10 competitors create creatures that you could see in a Jim Henson like movie. Tonight they will have to bring a fish to life and what they come up with is something you might not want to see in your fishtank, but you will be happy you saw it on this show.
There is something about this show that reminds me of my childhood and because of that I love Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge. To see what it is like to create these lifesize puppets is so cool and something you don’t ever get to see happen. So tune into tonight and every Tuesday at 10p for a competition show unlike any mother.


Dorian is reviewed on Almost Human and Being Human changes things up!
March 3rd, 2014 under Fox, Syfy. [ Comments: 1 ]

Tonight at 8p it is the season finale of Almost Human and that means it is time to evaluate Dorian’s (Michael Ealy) performance on the job. Will they decide to keep the decommissioned DRN on the force or will he be sent back to his pod?
Before we find out his fate, Kennex (Karl Urban) and him go on a case. The two of them have to look into a serial killer, who is going after homeless teens. It is Dorian’s computer that helps them solve the case, but is that enough to keep him working as a cop?
So tune in not only to find out, but also to show Fox we want this show to come back for a second season. Seriously, this show, Bones and Sleepy Hollow are Fox’s best dramas. Since the other two have already been picked up for another season, why can’t this show join the pack?

Tonight at 9p on Syfy’s Being Human, Sally (Meaghan Rath) is transported back to the day that she died. Can she change what happened to her on that day and save herself, or will she watch herself die again?
Since you find out by the first commercial what happens, I’ll tell you now that present day Sally enters her past self and survives. So if she is alive and not dead, what happens? Well you just have to tune in to find out. If you are a fan of the show, you are going to love what they do with this story over the next few episodes. And be even more pissed that the show was cancelled because this was a brilliant well played plot twist.


Syfy puts a stake through Being Human’s heart
February 25th, 2014 under Syfy. [ Comments: 1 ]

Syfy announced today that they cancelled Being Human and the season 4 finale on April 7th will actually be the series one. Yet another great Syfy series that is cancelled way before its time. Both Warehouse 13 and Eureka had a few more seasons in them, but Syfy pulled the plug on them early to save a few bucks. Just like they are doing with Being Human.
I am sorry, shows like Defiance and Helix are not doing it for me. I gave up on Lost Girl and I’m about to do the same with Bitten. So soon the only show I will be left watching on Syfy will be Haven and I am sure they will cancel that one after its extended season. That is just how they do things over there.
Is anyone else pissed by Syfy cancelling good shows before their time and keeping the bad ones on the air? And don’t get me started on all their crappy reality shows. They actually have one where a woman tried to get the spirit of Jack the Ripper to come out by telling him if he does she won’t charge him for sex. I didn’t have to ask my friends, who are into the paranormal, if that is bad idea, common sense will tell you that.
Seriously Syfy you are also doing something wrong in your reality department if TBS has a better show for nerds (Revenge of the Nerds) than anything you have currently have on your air. Just saying!
Sorry Syfy just pissed me off, but I am starting to feel better now that I have vented.


The Monkey’s Paw will leave you wishing for no nightmares!
January 24th, 2014 under Syfy. [ Comments: 1 ]

The Monkey’s Paw debuts on Chiller tonight at 9p and there is a reason why the network’s slogan is “Scary Good”. I sincerely don’t know the last time I saw a horror movie that terrified me as much as this one. The death scenes are so scary good that I am not sure how I am going to sleep tonight.
Jake Tilton (C.J. Thomason) is struggling to make ends meet; so when he is given a monkey’s paw that will grant him three wishes, he accepts it. Not believing in the power of it, he wishes for a car that is sitting outside. When he goes to look at the car, he sees the keys inside and takes it for a ride. While driving around with his BFF, Tony Cobb (Stephen Lang), he sees a alligator in the road and swerves to hit it. He winds up hitting a tree and killing Tony, who went through the windshield. He decides to use the paw to bring back his best friend, but Tony is not the same. Tony came back to life, but his soul didn’t return. So now he is going on a murderous rampage and there is no way to stop him. Will Jake find a solution to his problem before it is too late or will the Monkey’s Paw win this fight?
You will just have to tune in for a movie that is as much horrifying as it is thrilling.


Being Human and Bitten will make you howl at the moon!
January 13th, 2014 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]

Being Human is back on Syfy tonight at 9p after last year’s season finale and it’s just as intense as that last episode. Sally (Meaghan Rath) is trapped in a different dimension with Donna and she has no way out. Josh (Sam Huntington) is trapped by his wolf and all he wants to do is die to end the curse. Aiden (Sam Witwer) and Nora (Kristen Hager) have been living in the woods to help Josh keep his humanity, but with each day that passes it is getting harder and harder to do.
Eventually Sally will be reunited with her friends, and she thinks she can help Josh. But can she really? Aiden will be reunited with someone from his past, and that person will change everything and is hiding a secret from him that could destroy him. Nora just wants her husband back, but she should be careful what she wishes for because you can’t always get you want.
I had no idea where Being Human was going to go after the season finale and i really love what they are doing with the new season in the 2 episodes that I have seen thus far. This show really keeps you guessing and that is what I love most about it.

Then at 10p, Bitten takes a huge bite of the Syfy lineup and you will be smitten with bitten.
Elena Michaels (Laura Vandervoort), seems to have everything. She is a talented photographer with a gorgeous boyfriend, but there is a secret she hasn’t told him. She is a werewolf and as much as she tries to suppress it, it keeps coming to surface and risking everything in her life.
She is the only female werewolf because women normally are not strong enough to survive being bitten. Up until about a year ago she lived with other werewolves. When they made her do something that took what little of her humanity away is left, she walked away from them and moved to the city.
But when one of her kind starts killing humans, she is called home. Now she has to lie to everyone from her new life to go back to her old one.
How long will she be able to do that? Which life will she choose? We will have to tune each week for a show that does for werewolves what The Vampire Diaries does for Vampires and makes them enjoyable to watch again.
BTW if you think about Laura Vandervoort is living a Sci-Fi person’s dream. She’s played Supergirl, an alien on V and now a werewolf on Bitten, what else is there left for her do in the genre?
