Super-Review: Cancelled shows

Lots of series finales showed up this year. Some of them were only supposed to be season finales, but the shows were cancelled. Most of the time, they didn’t know they were being cancelled when the finale was filmed, which leaves us fans in a bit of a pickle, dealing with completely open-ended stories –… Read More »

The Event

The main “event” around here lately is that this website was down for two days while we switched servers. Apparently there were issues with the process. I’m not convinced everything is back to normal yet, so let me know if you experience problems. There was also a TV show that premiered last night called The… Read More »

Return to MidMo and other short subjects

My second guest shot on the Midnight Movie Club was posted this week, reviewing the film “Return To Me” (with a stellar cast led by David Duchovny and Minnie Driver – in the movie, not the podcast). If the stats are accurate, many of you missed this film when it came out in 2000 (though… Read More »

Premiere weeks 2009, part 2 – SGU and Clone Wars

Before jumping into the new stuff, just a quick note on the second episodes of shows that started last week… Heroes – an improvement. I both enjoyed and was annoyed by the Sylar/Parkman bit. It was obvious, but fun and frustrating to watch. FlashForward – again, an improvement. I like the expansion of the ‘conspiracy’… Read More »

Flashing Forward to Fall TV

The fall TV season is upon us. Are there any shows out there worthy of watching this year? Any guilty pleasures you’ve just gotta have? Anything that just drains the life out of you but you used to love it and can’t give it up? I used to watch much more television than I do… Read More »

Sci-fi news roundup

Here are a few Science Fiction/Fantasy tidbits I picked up on the smoke-signal network recently. Like a ship wandering through the seas of Hollywood, it looked like Narnia sequel The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was going to be lost as Disney debated dropping the property after The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and… Read More »

Webisodes and commercials

To get us through the winter repeats, some shows are giving us webisodes. That includes Battlestar Galactica and Heroes. In both cases, the short series are meant to provide a lead-in to the new episodes, now still a month away. Heroes picks up during the final moments of the “Villains” finale and focuses on one… Read More »

More recent sci-fi updates

Well, my last sci-fi news post was a bit late, but all this news is at least recent-ish. First off, two bits of Battlestar Galactica related stories: The Sci-Fi channel has apparently officially given the green light to BSG spin-off “Caprica” with a 2010 kickoff. The series, which will focus on the the Earthlike planet… Read More »

Smallville fix

Smallville’s a repeat tonight after the mid-season cliffhanger two weeks ago. Not sure where the plot is going? Come on… Chloe is still possessed by Brainiac, Doomsday is a raving murderous monster who just wants to be loved, and Clark is going to save everyone, but take a beating in the process. That’s all without… Read More »
