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!

Want to get married by Orlando Jones at Comic-Con?
July 5th, 2017 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]


San Diego Comic-Con is already a memorable weekend as it is, but how would you like to make it unforgettable? Syfy is giving you the chance because they are asked Orlando Jones to get ordained so that he can perform pop-up nuptials throughout the weekend.

Think of the story you can tell your grandchildren on how you said your I dos? It could be like, “I was dressed as Luke Skywalker and she was Princess Leia, we were surrounded by other Cosplayers as the Dumbass from The Book of Love married us.” How special is that story? Make it happen and tell me all about it!

A Police Academy reunion in 2 Lava 2 Lantula
July 12th, 2016 under Syfy. [ Comments: none ]


If you needed another reason to watch the sequel to Lavalantula, Syfy just gave us a huge one in this trailer for 2 Lava 2 Lantula. Michael Winslow aka The Man of 10,000 Sound Effects and Steve Guttenberg will be acting together again in it. That’s right, Larvell Jones and Carey Mahoney will once again suit up in their blue uniforms, almost a third of a century after they joined the Police Academy. You know it would be nice to see them with Hightower (Bubba Smith) and Tackleberry (David Graf) again, but their absence gives us something to look forward to in the third movie.
But before we get a third one, we have to watch the second telenmovie on August 6th. I know I will be tuning in to see the bigger, hotter and nastier spiders that spew lava!
