Alan Tudyk is a lovable Resident Alien who wants to kill us all
January 27th, 2021 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 10p, you are going to fall in love with Resident Alien on Syfy. There is a new doctor in Patience, Colorado, and he is alien to their ways. I mean, he is an alien.

A few months ago, Captain Hah Re (Alan Tudyk) crashed down onto Earth, and he took on the body of Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle. Now, he is stuck here because he lost the device he needs to complete his mission.

The doctor recently moved to the small town and remained a hermit in his cabin. Therefore, no one noticed that the alien killed him and took over his body. However, when the town doctor is murdered, they come to Vanderspeigle to find out what happened. Now, not only does he have to pretend to be human, but he also has to pretend to be a doctor. Good thing he watched all of those Law & Order marathons. Will they be enough to convince the town that he is the man whose skin he is in?

Sara Tomko (Asta Twelvetrees) was the doctor’s nurse. She can sense there is something off with the new doctor, but she likes him and his quirky ways. Like him, she never felt like she belonged in her small town. Therefore, she is always there to back him up. Something that he is going to need quite often because Law & Order didn’t prepare him for interacting with humans.

There is one human he cannot interact with, and that is Max (Judah Prehn). He is an 8-year-old boy who can see that Vanderspeigle is an alien. He tries to tell everyone the truth, including his father, the Mayor (Levi Fiehler), but no one believes him.

Even the town Sheriff (Corey Reynolds) thinks the kid is lying. However, he doesn’t like the new resident. Then again, he doesn’t like anyone. He is one of those smalltown sheriffs that is really tough and loves being in charge. Thankfully Deputy Liv Baker (Elizabeth Bowen) is the opposite of him.

Vanderspeigle is going to need all the help he can get to fit in with all of these humans. Fitting in is something that is going to be hard for him. That is until he tries some alcohol. Drunk Vanderspeigle is the best thing.

Actually, everything is the best thing when you watch him trying to adapt to our ways. Tudyk is just so endearing as he plays this alien whose mission is to destroy Earth, but he cannot let the Earthlings know that. He is a douchebag, but a lovable douchebag.

Will the douchebag have a change of heart the more he interacts with humans? Will they rub off of him, or will they convince him he is doing the right thing?

Most Sci-Fi shows lose their likability after the pilot, not Resident Alien. It gets more and more delightful with each episode. It is unlike anything else on television, and boy do we need it.

I am enjoying this show so much; I am going to declare that it is the best new show of the season. Nothing even comes close to it.

Chucky will be killing it on the small screen
July 16th, 2020 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]


Last year, Chucky was back with a reboot, and it was atrocious. Thankfully, the killer doll’s dad, Don Mancini, reunited with his creation for Syfy and USA Network. Today, we are getting the first look at the series that is going to be so killer; it needs to air on two networks.

What can we expect from the small screen version of Child’s Play? The press release says, “In the new CHUCKY television series, after a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies — and allies — from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.”

Just when we thought that 2021 was going to be so much better than this year, we have another reason to look forward to it. That reason is an innocent looking red head doll that is guilty as hell.

Zombie Tidal Wave is a different type of Zombie movie
August 17th, 2019 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]


Now that Sharknado has concluded its run, Ian Ziering has a new killer natural disaster to deal with. Tonight at 9p on Syfy, he takes on a Zombie Tidal Wave.

Hunter Shaw (Ziering) is a boat captain, who lives in a sleepy island. They are about to wake up to a nightmare after an earthquake stirs up something in the sea. A boat with a secret that sunk around 35 years ago is woken up by the shaking ground. The quake sends her contents into the water and creates Zombies that are unlike any we have seen.

Shaw and his co-captain Ray (Shelton Jolivette) are the first to witness the Zombies that are unlike all the other ones we have seen in the past. Ray’s niece was bitten by one them, so he takes her to the hospital because, at the time, they do not know what bit her. Shaw, on the other hand, goes to Sheriff Kameo Akoni (Erich Chikashi Linzbichler) for help.

While they are out in the water, they find themselves surrounded by swimming Zombies. As if things could not get any worse for them, the quake set off a tsunami. That tidal wave brings all of those undead to the island.

Now they are undead are making the living just like them. Will Shaw and his men be able to stop these indestructible creatures. Or will they find themselves just like them?

While this is not Sharknado, it is still an enjoyable Zombie feature that changes up the formula that has been done to death. Looks like Ziering, director Anthony C. Ferrante and writer Thunder Levin have another franchise on their hands. Can’t wait to see what they do next summer.

Happy got some unhappy news
June 4th, 2019 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]


There used to be a time when I was watching Syfy several nights a week. Now, I cannot remember the last time I tuned in. They used to do shows that were more Sci-Fi based and not just based on comic books. Personally, I think they should mix it up and do more shows like Warehouse 13 and Haven.

I guess I am not alone because The Hollywood Reporter says that the network gave Happy and Deadly Class some sad news, they will be joining the deadly class. Translation, they were cancelled. The report also says that they will be shopping the shows around. However, if they could not get viewers on Syfy, I doubt they will be getting them somewhere else. Although, with Chris Meloni as the star of the quirky Happy, it might have a chance.

Oh the Inhumansity, plus Hell’s Kitchen: All Stars and Z Nation is back!
September 29th, 2017 under Gordon Ramsay, Marvel Comics, Syfy. [ Comments: none ]


I am sure you have heard that Marvel’s Inhumans on ABC is awful, and you heard right. When you think of shows based on comic books, you think of them to have a some what of a fun feel and even maybe a little simple. If you know what I mean? Marvel’s Inhuman’s is so pretentious that it makes you want to fall asleep. That and you want the King to open his mouth and kill everyone with his powerful voice. It would be a mercy killing for anyone who decides to watch this boring show that makes superheroes, super zeroes.

On Attilan, there are 2 groups of people, ones with powers and ones without. King Black Bolt (Anson Mount) voice is so powerful, it kill people. Therefore, he does not speak. His brother, Maximus (Iwan Rheon), has no powers and he wants to be King. He decides that is time for the powerless people to be in power. Therefore, he organizes a coup.

Just as Maximus is about to imprison his brother, his sister-in-law Medusa (Serinda Swan) and Medusa’s sister Crystal (Isabelle Cornish), Crystal’s dog Lockjaw transports them all to different parts of Hawaii and now they have to find each other in this strange land. Once they are reunited, they will need to go back to Attilan and reclaim what is rightfully theirs.

You know those pompous shows about the Bible that they think they are better than the average viewer? Well that is Inhumans. It is so pompous that you will be bored by the first half hour. I will say something positive about it, Lockjaw needs his own spinoff. Now that is a show I would watch and suggest that you watch too unlike this one.


Then over on Fox at 8p, Hell’s Kitchen is back as are several of the past contestants. That is because this season, it is All Stars one. The contestants vying to work for Gordon Ramsay’s latest restaurant are Giovanni Filippone and Benjamin Walanka from season 5, Vincent Hurd from season 6, Benjamin Knack from season 7, Elise Harris and Jennifer Normant from season 9, Robyn Almodovar, Dana Cohen and Barbie Marshall from season 10, Nicholas Peters Bond, Milly Medley, Michelle Tribble and Joshua Trovato from season 14, and Jared Bobkin, Ashley Nickell and Amanda Palomino from season 15.

Does having been a contestant on the show beforehand, make it easier or harder for them? Just because they know what is coming, does not mean they are prepared for it? Plus, they are not as young as they used to be and that is going to make things very difficult for at least one contestant. Also have the contestants learned from the past experience that being the team a$$hole is a bad thing? If they did, then what fun would that be.

In fact, it is gets so good, that I am pissed that Fox only sent out the first two episodes to review because the third looks like it is going to be so bad that it will be great!


Over on Syfy at 9p, it is time for Z Nation. The episode starts off with Warren (Kellita Smith) waking up from a coma, 2 years after the season finale. The only person from her past that is there is Murphy (Keith Allan) and he has been cured. His blood has also cured everyone in the dream place that they are living in called Zona. There are no Zombies and it seems like the perfect place to live forever, but how long can anything remain perfect when you are living during a Zombie apocalypse?

What about Doc (Russell Hodgkinson), 10K (Nat Zang) and Red (Natalie Jongjaroenlarp)? Murphy thinks they are dead, but they are still fighting Zombies that are evolving into something harder to kill. Then there is Lucy (Cora M. Abdallah), everyone is looking for her, but will they be able to find her? How old is she now? You will just have to watch to see! That and a happy Murphy! Who would have thought that was possible?

I will be honest, I gave up the show last season because I did not like where it was going. When Syfy sent out the first four episodes for season 4, I said I would give it try. The show is back and as good as it was the first two seasons. Thus, I am glad I did. Z Nation is back from the dead, just like a…Zombie!
