A Sport So Futuristic, They Had To Call It... Futuresport!

Welcome to Dean Cain week, when we'll be posting a new Dean Cain clip, every single day! Today's outing is Futuresport, a 1998 TV movie (with a surprising amount of cussing and nudity on the DVD) about the most futuristic sport ever: Futuresport! » 5/05/14 6:00pm 5/05/14 6:00pm

Syfy pulls the plug on Alphas, once and for all

Their mutant powers helped them save the world from Stanton Parish, but the Alphas' special abilities weren't enough to save them from Syfy's axe. Syfy has cancelled the show once and for all. Wonder if this makes it any more likely that Syfy will fast-track the Blake's 7 reboot or Robert Hewitt Wolfe's Defender? We… » 1/16/13 5:47pm 1/16/13 5:47pm

Alphas: When someone says "I will be your father figure," RUN AWAY

Last night's Alphas started to pull into focus the conflict between Rosen and Stanton Parish over Danielle — they both want to be her dad, and neither of them really has her best interests at heart. It's a fascinating take on the Professor X/Magneto thing the two men have going on, and I'm actually quite sad the… » 9/25/12 2:25pm 9/25/12 2:25pm

Syfy's new development slate brings back space opera with Deep Space…

With Stargate gone and Battlestar Galactica long dead, there's been a dreadful absence of space opera on our screens lately. Thank goodness Syfy is stepping into the gap, launching a whole new spacefaring series. Even better news? The series is being crafted by Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Andromeda producer Robert… » 11/09/11 11:19am 11/09/11 11:19am

The Gates tells the real truth about vampires

The vampire genre is weird these days. Imagine if there were tons of movies and shows about lovable reformed serial killers... who still lapse into murder every now and then. Sunday's The Gates was a welcome deconstruction of "nice" vamps. » 9/07/10 12:14pm 9/07/10 12:14pm

If Andromeda came back, what would you do differently?

Suppose someone tried to relaunch Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda. What would you change? Who would you cast? That's the question former Andromeda writer Zack Stentz posed in a forum, and former showrunner Robert Hewitt Wolfe chimed in with some suggestions. » 8/25/10 3:34pm 8/25/10 3:34pm

The Gates has become damned good television

We wrote off The Gates after we saw the bland first episode. But ABC's new horror-soap opera has been getting better and better, and last night's episode was almost inhumanly entertaining. Spoilers ahead... » 8/09/10 5:30pm 8/09/10 5:30pm

Help Me Become An Andromeda Fan!

So I admit it — I know very little about Andromeda, the Gene Roddenberry-inspired series that featured Kevin Sorbo in a tight uniform. I've seen a couple of episodes, years ago, and read bits and pieces here and there. But lately, I've gotten more curious — the show's writing staff includes Star Trek: Deep Space… » 10/13/09 2:00pm 10/13/09 2:00pm

"Riverworld" Adaptation Braces for Sea of Angry Readers

A faithful adaptation of Philip José Farmer's Riverworld novels would be nigh impossible, but the Syfy Channel's upcoming Riverworld miniseries plans to veer off into such uncharted waters that readers may not recognize it. » 6/08/09 2:20pm 6/08/09 2:20pm
