When THE X-FILES hit it big in the 1990s, all the other networks were looking for their own science-fiction series to rake in a loyal fan following and a ratings bonanza. One of the best was NBC’s DARK SKIES created by Bryce Zabel and Brent V. Friedman. It only last one-season, but its rich mythology and feature-film qualities made it a stand-out (Tobe Hooper even helmed the pilot). The story was set in the 1960s and followed John Loengard (Eric Close) and Kimberly Sayers (Megan Ward) as they were called into action by the government to take down an unseen […]Read On »

The fall finale of FRINGE, left much to be desired. Instead of going out with a bang and giving us a blockbuster way to remember the show leading up to the return, we got a rather mundane episode where the ultimate bottom line was Olivia (Anna Torv) ending her relationship with Peter (Joshua Jackson).

There’s been a lot written about the new ambitious Fox science-fiction series TERRA NOVA (which will air a two-hour premiere on May 23 and follow with the full series in the fall), but for the first time, the executive producers and cast were able to get together and chat in more detail. At today’s Winter TCA session for Fox, executive producer Brannon Braga says the reason for the two-hour premiere was due to “too much story.” “We struggled for a long time how to fit it all in into 60 pages,” says Braga. “There was a meeting with the network […]Read On »

At today’s Winter TCA 2011 press tour, ABC Entertainment Group President Paul Lee spoke about the strategy for V – Season 2 and hopes the numbers continue to be as strong as the season two premiere. “Those lizards just won’t die,” says Lee. “They keep coming back.

We brought whole new ideas to it and amped up the adrenaline in that show to make sure it gets better and better.” CLICK HERE for ASSIGNMENT X’s exclusive interview with V […]Read On »

The classic series was fun and had some great moments but it was always cheeseball with lousy special effects and props. However, what made up for it was great storytelling and of a resistance that actually was organized, motivated and did something. The first season of the […]Read On »

The storyline is blowing up – literally – on Syfy’s CAPRICA, the prequel series to the network’s acclaimed remake of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.

In ABC’s reboot of V, the alien Visitors trying to take over Earth are led by Anna (played by Morena Baccarin), who is a pretty cold customer even by extraterrestrial reptile standards. She mates with humans and then eats them, skins alive subordinates who displease her and even beats up her own daughter Lisa for disobedience. This season, we’ll see that Anna also has been dishing out rough treatment to her mother (portrayed by Jane Badler, who was the primary alien villainess in the original ’80s incarnation of V). Thanks to the fact that Anna is played by Baccarin (pronounced […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: EXAM director Stuart Hazeldine Talks About the Ultimate Job Interview

EXAM is a unique sort of science fiction film. Taking place completely in one room and relying on the drama and tension to unfold, the movie has no special effects, no fancy props, yet still feels as if we are watching the ultimate job interview some time when things have gone horribly wrong in the future.
