PhiCorp is a pharmaceutical company that is stock piling so many meds and antibiotics they could keep the planet healthy for years, […]Read On »

Stars: John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Mekhi Phifer, Alexa Havins, Kai Owen, Bill Pullman, Arlene Tur, Paul James, Marina Benedict, Brian Guest, William Thomas, Sharon Morgan, Tom Price Writer: Doris Egan Director: Billy Gierhart Network: Starz, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: July 15, 2011 I like the tone of this series for TORCHWOOD better than the dark, bleak, and sinister overtones of TORCHWOOD: CHILDREN OF EARTH. That third series seemed so devoid of hope, that there was no possible way to end it on an upbeat note, and it didn’t. MIRACLE DAY is tense and engaging without giving us the darkness […]Read On »

The X List: The 10 Things About TORCHWOOD You Need to Know

Russell T. Davies not only brought DOCTOR WHO back to our screens in 2005, the show-runner/writer also spun off the concept of an alien-fighting secret organization called TORCHWOOD (hint: scramble those letters and see what you come up with) that debuted in Series 2 of the new WHO into its own series. After two regular series, the show morphed into a single story for its third series, TORCHWOOD: CHILDREN OF EARTH, aired in five parts during one week. Possibly one of the greatest achievements in modern sci-fi television, the third series saga set the bar pretty high, but now TORCHWOOD […]Read On »

TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY, the latest miniseries of the world-saving adventures of Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), premieres Friday on Starz, in a co-production with the BBC. Bill Pullman plays antagonist Oswald Danes. This is far from the New York-born Pullman’s first foray into genre – one of his first film roles was starring in Wes Craven’s voodoo horror movie THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW, and he went on to play the U.S. president in INDEPENDENCE DAY – but this is one of the actors few forays into series television. Here’s what the actor had to say about his new gig. […]Read On »
