In Syfy Channel’s SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE, which has its public premiere on the network Wednesday, July 30 at 9:00pm ET/PT, hurricanes once again scoop massive amounts of sharks on the ocean and create havoc by dropping them onto a major American city. In the original SHARKNADO, it was Los Angeles; in THE SECOND ONE, it’s the Big Apple. SHARKNADO 2 was filmed on location in Manhattan by director Anthony C. Ferrante and written by Thunder Levin, who both held those jobs on the first film. Dante Palminteri plays Vaughn Brody in SHARKNADO 2, the son of Martin, played […]Read On »

In Season 2 of Syfy’s DEFIANCE, Thursdays at 8 PM, things have only heated up in the town of the title. It’s been three-and-a-half decades since seven different species of aliens, collectively called the Votan, landed on Earth. Integration with the human population – and each other – is still a work in sometimes violent progress. DEFIANCE co-executive producer/director Michael Nankin, who previously worked with DEFIANCE executive producer/show runner Kevin Murphy when they were both on BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and CAPRICA, is at a Syfy party for the Television Critics Association. He talks about the challenges of making credible, character-based but […]Read On »

We’re only at the start of Season 2 of Syfy’s DEFIANCE, returning Thursday June 19, but Jaime Murray’s character Stahma Tarr has already established herself as one of the more formidable antagonists of either gender in science fiction. In DEFIANCE, it’s thirty-five years after seven alien races, collectively known as the Votan, crash-landed on Earth. One of these species is the Castithan, a caste-and-status-conscious group. Stahma is a highborn Castithan who married Datak Tarr, played by Tony Curran, who has risen to prominence in the town of Defiance, formerly St. Louis,MO. Stahma plays the respectful wife, but she shamelessly manipulates […]Read On »

SHARKNADO was the surprise phenomenon of the summer of 2013. On screen, a hurricane full of killer sharks flooded Los Angeles. Off-screen, it got mentioned everywhere, from Time Magazine to THE TODAY SHOW, had sold-out midnight screenings and caused Twitter to explode. In SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE, which will premiere July 30 on the Syfy Channel, New York City is beset by the combination of excess water and huge toothy fish. Fin and April Shepard (Ian Ziering and Tara Reid), who bested the SHARKNADO of the first film, happen to be visiting when Great Whites begin taking bites of […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager, Helen Colliander, Sergio DeZio Writer: Anna Fricke, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Stefan Pleczynski Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: April 7, 2014 When the U.S./Syfy Channel version of BEING HUMAN premiered in 2011 with “There Goes the Neighborhood 1 & 2,” it seemed almost a photocopy of its U.K./BBC predecessor – a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost are roommates. Additionally, the U.S. version seemed to have less humor and more self-pity and sulking among its […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager, Mark Pellegrino, Amy Aquino, Vincent Leclerc, Andreas Apergis Writer: Casey Fisher, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Stefan Pleszcyznski Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 10, 2014 Happily, BEING HUMAN doesn’t decide to permanently warp the timeline. Given that we’ve spent three-and-a-half seasons investing in the one already provided, dumping it now would be a cheat of huge proportions. In “Too Far, Fast Forward!” things get set right – though it’s not clear exactly how – and […]Read On »
