They make some cryptic references to another character that’s involved in the special whom they can’t name; but if you’ve seen the seventh season finally, ‘The Name of the Doctor,’ you probably already know who it is. Continue reading
Matt Smith, who has held the role of the Doctor for three full seasons of Doctor Who (the fifth through the seventh) has finally confirmed that he’ll be back for season eight, which start filming around the end of year.
Many have speculated that he may leave the series in a dramatic fashion, either as part of the big 50th anniversary special (which guest stars the previous Doctor, David Tennant), or the Christmas special in December.
There were also persistent rumors that his replacement would be the series’ first female Doctor; but it looks like we’ll be waiting awhile for that.
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is set in Victorian times and follows a grownup Alice as she journeys back to Wonderland to find a lost love.
Here’s the trailer. No premiere date yet, but it will air Thursdays at 8. Continue reading
Watching the trailer, it’s obvious that Marvel REALLY wants people to know that this show is related to The Avengers, but you can’t blame them for that.
It was also interesting to see Melinda May break out the martial arts in a scene very reminiscent of Black Widow in Iron Man 2.
Apparently, it’s going to air on ABC Tuesdays at 8:00 PM ‘this fall.’
The BBC always releases their shows on video soon after they air, which necessitates having said DVDs and Blu Rays ready to go ahead of time. Do you see where this is going? Continue reading
According to the Agents of SHIELD facebook page, the first trailer is set to air during tomorrow night’s season finally of Once Upon a Time.
Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Wonderfalls) is eying Kickstarter as a means of reviving his short-lived, though much-loved TV series Pushing Daisies.
The series ran for two half-seasons on ABC back in 2007, and starred Lee Pace (who was recently cast as the villain in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy) as Ned, a pie-maker / private detective with the power to resurrect the dead with a single touch. One day, he resurrects his childhood love, Chuck, and their romance is immediately rekindled. Unfortunately, the two can never touch, as second touch from Ned makes dead things dead again, forever.

O’Bannon most recent created the somewhat dull CW series Cult, which was pulled off the air after a few weeks. Do you know how badly a show has to do for it to be canceled by the CW? His other credits include Seaquest, Alienation, and the new SyFy series Defiance, so Sci Fi definitely plays more to his strengths than the thriller/drama Cult did. The Hollywood Reporter is saying that O’Bannon will have a ‘heavy role’ in the series, being second in command after showrunner Eric Kripke.
The film, which spawned three sequels of varying quality, was an attempt to make light of the cliches of the slasher/horror genre (though I found that it largely fell victim to those same cliches itself). It involves a masked killer (a mask assumed by someone different in each film) who kills a group of kids while following the established pattern of the slasher film, a fact which is endlessly pointed out by the ‘horror geek’ character.
