THE ALMIGHTY JOHNSONS has already shot and aired three seasons in New Zealand, but its first season just started airing on Syfy Channel in July, Fridays at 10 PM. In the series, contemporary New Zealand native Axl Johnson finds out on his twenty-first birthday that he’s actually the incarnation of Odin, king of the Norse gods. More, Axl’s three brothers are also incarnations of Norse gods. Their powers aren’t all that powerful yet, but they will be if Axl can complete a quest. If he doesn’t complete it, they all die and possibly the world will come to an end. […]Read On »

DEFIANCE, now in its second season on Syfy Channel, concerns an Earth approximately thirty-five years after seven different types of aliens, known collectively as the Votan, crash-landed on Earth. The Votan have issues with each other, as well as with humans, who – as always – also have issues with one another. At the same time the TV series DEFIANCE began airing, Trion launched its online videogame DEFIANCE, which has story and characters that synch up at various points with the show. This poses a unique challenge for both the TV creative staff and the videogame personnel. DEFIANCE executive producer/co-creator/show […]Read On »

SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE star Judah Friedlander takes a bite out of sharks

Judah Friedlander spent seven seasons playing Frank Rossitano on NBC’s 30 ROCK. Since NBC and Syfy Channel have the same parent company, NBC/Universal, it’s perhaps not totally surprising that the Maryland-born actor/comedian – whose many other credits include the films AMERICAN SPLENDOR, MEET THE PARENTS and THE WRESTLER – wound up in Syfy Channel’s SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE. However, as Friedlander explains at a party thrown by NBC/Universal Television for the press, it wasn’t a case of anybody at either network approaching him about the sequel, which concerns a Sharknado hitting New York City. “I went to them. I […]Read On »

In 2013’s surprise hit SHARKNADO, Ian Ziering played heroic Fin Shepard, who almost single-handedly – with a chainsaw in that hand – saved Los Angeles from a tornado full of sharks. In SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE, which premieres on Syfy Channel Wednesday, July 30, Ziering is back as Fin. Fin and reconciled ex-wife April Wexler (Tara Reid, also reprising her original SHARKNADO role) are on their way to New York City to promote April’s book about surviving the previous year’s event. However, they don’t even land in the Big Apple before they’re once again grappling with storm-borne Great Whites, […]Read On »

Judd Hirsch takes a bite out of SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE

A strange coincidence has landed Judd Hirsch at Syfy Channel’s Beverly Hilton poolside screening of SHARKNADO 2: THE SECOND ONE for the benefit of the Television Critics Association press tour. The sequel to last summer’s surprise Syfy hit is being projected onto a gigantic blank wall next to the pool prior to its Syfy Channel premiere on Wednesday, July 30. The atmosphere is deliberately drive-in theatre, with couches decorated to look like car seats and popcorn and soda stations (as well as regular drive-in dinner fare). Hirsch was nominated for an Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in ORDINARY PEOPLE, […]Read On »

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 »
