Stargate Universe – spun from Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis – has its place in fandom. Unfortunately, that very fandom wasn’t strong enough for the show to last beyond its two seasons, with it getting cancelled in 2011. Now 4 years later, and despite the shows lukewarm success,  a passionate fan has taken to Kickstarter in hopes of funding another season. He needs $50 million and 50 days to do it. Talk about a long shot.  (more…)

12 monkeys

It’s been in development for a while, though until now the 12 Monkeys television reimagining has been without a definite home. SyFy ordered a pilot for the show back in August of 2013, and now, though some may consider this to be one of the worst ideas ever, this Terry Gilliam-inspired series will, whether you like it or not, be making its way to SyFy in full series format.

- 04-08-14reviews, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

As the fourth season of Lost Girl comes to a close, we try to unravel once and for all who’s who, what’s what and how it all fits together. As I’ve noted, the last couple of episodes there’s a lot of loose ends to tie up, and a lot of them don’t tie so easily together, so it will be interesting to see how the show handles them. Whether its Bo’s father the ancient evil, or the druid with severe to excessive mommy issues, let’s just say there’s a lot at stake for just one episode of Lost Girl. (more…)

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Lost Girl’ #4.12 – “Origin”

So to recap: Hale’s dead and Massimo’s alive. One would think that after such a significant episode that Lost Girl might take the week to cool off and let the viewer catch their breath, but nope. “Origin,” was not only the penultimate episode of the fourth season, but it was another info dump as we unravel the details of the nature of Bo’s connection with Rainer, the real identity of her father, and the stakes going into next week’s season finale.

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Lost Girl’ #4.11 – “End of a Line”

If this Lost Girl recap comes late in the game, it’s only because of the lingering death wail that’s emanated out from this week’s instalment and cast a pall over the last two episodes of the season. It’s impressive that the final 10 minutes of the episode packed the emotional punch that it did considering that the preceding 30 minutes were all about performing the complex narrative gymnastics to explain just what the heck this season’s been all about. What’s up with Rainer? Who’s the bad man Tamsin used to work for? What’s the plan with the last Una mens seed? And what about that death the Leviathan predicted? (more…)

When you think of some of the iconic muppets, monsters and otherworldly creatures that have graced the big and small screen, chances are they were created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop – the legendary makers of movie magic. Founded in 1979 by the late Jim Henson, carried on by his son Brian Henson, the shop has earned its esteemed reputation with its creations appearing in such classics as Labyrinth, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Dinosaurs (the TV show) and, of course, The Muppets. So what are the venerable fabricators of fiction up to nowadays? When they’re not actively involved with FX and Fabrication, they are making aspiring creature designers duke it out for a job in SyFy’s new show Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge. (more…)

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Lost Girl’ Episode #4.10 – “Waves”

- 03-18-14reviews, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

After last week’s Lost Girl info-dump we catch our breath slightly as we retrace the steps Bo took to free Rainer, while the now shut out triad of Kenzi, Dyson and Lauren go out on their own to solve a case Bo-less. But while the case of the week was rewarding for being actually quite funny and charming at many points, Bo’s flashback to the rescuing of Rainer from the ghost train was never really explained to my satisfaction, not to mention why Bo went all out for some guy she just met.

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Lost Girl’ Episode 4.9 – “Destiny’s Child”

What’s a Lost Girl to do with a big old jar of smoke? Open it, of course! Come on, when Kenzi gave Bo the jar last week, did you really expect this to go any other way? Naturally, the jar doesn’t contain what you think, but what jar ever does? In other news, we get insight into Trick’s hidden history, Tamsin’s issues, and what The Wanderer wants and what it means for the gang. (more…)

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Lost Girl’ Episode 4.8 – “Groundhog Fae”

- 03-05-14reviews, TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

If you were somewhat confused by this week’s Christmas-y themed Lost Girl, it’s understandable. Granted, the holiday our fae friends were celebrating is somewhat, ahem, made up, but it is called Yule, and it does borrow a lot of Christmastime imagery, and Krampus is the reason for the season. The explanation is simple, this episode originally aired during the holiday season in Canada on Showcase, but considering that many places in North America still look like a winter wonderland, we can let the exact time slide and just enjoy the company of old friends in somewhat merry times.
