  1. Magicians Perform 13 Tricks in Two Minutes To Promote Wizard Wars

    It's not a series about Harry Potter.

    Wizard Wars is a reality show competition that puts magicians against each other to create tricks and illusions from everyday objects. They then have their performance judged by magic professionals like Penn and Teller. The show premieres tonight at 10:00PM on Syfy, and to promote it the show's creator Richard Lax and in-house wizard Justin Flom perform 13 tricks in two minutes.

  2. Twitter Reacts to Sharknado 2: The Second One, The Greatest Cinematic Achievement Of Our Age

    "We are talking about shark falling rates of two inches an hour."

    If you didn't watch Sharknado 2: The Second One last night, it's either because you didn't have cable or because you're a heathen. There is no third explanation. Luckily, Twitter's on hand to show you the bonktastical craziness you missed. Cameos! Tara Reid with a saw for a hand! Both literal and figurative shark jumping!

  3. The First Trailer For Syfy’s 12 Monkeys TV Show Looks Pretty Awesome

    Plague of madness!

    Color me utterly surprised. I was excited but skeptical when we first heard Syfy was adapting Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys but this looks really great to me.

  5. Dominion Recap: Godspeed

    Lions, and angels, and razor wings. Oh my!

    Dominion's pilot exhaustively set up its post-apocalyptic world. With the heavy-lifting done, episode two digs in with murder, deception, angel battles, and super runaways.

  6. Review: SYFY’s Dominion Wants To Be Your Summer TV Fling

    And you should let it.

    You've seen the ads, a classic pose of Saint Michael, the Archangel, his wings spread, his sword poised to slay the demon at his feet -- but hold up. In place of the standard devil, there's a man wielding two guns. That's because Dominion is a show set in a not-so-distant future where God has disappeared, leaving angels and man to a kill-or-be-killed grudge match.

  7. Review: ISA, a Bilingual, Lady-Led, Cyberpunk Thriller from Telemundo and Syfy

    Review: Syfy's ISA

    When we were approached with the possibility of reviewing ISA, a movie collaboration between the Syfy, Chiller TV, and Telemundo, we jumped at the possibility. A cyberpunk movie set in Los Angeles' most Hispanic neighborhoods with a super-intelligent Latina lead? Absolutely up our alley.

  8. Lev Grossman’s The Magicians and the Mainstreaming of Fan Culture

    This is just like magic!

    A few weeks ago, the Syfy network announced their plans to adapt Lev Grossman's fantasy trilogy, The Magicians, into an hourlong drama series. The small handful of blogs and online news outlets who covered the story labelled the project "Harry Potter for adults," or else slapped it with a somewhat derisive-sounding "Young Adult fantasy" label. On the surface, it's easy to see how people can mistake The Magicians for any number of other "young people discovering they're mystically special" narrative, but it's a description that is, nevertheless, inaccurate. Now I'm not crazy. I know a story about a group of young adults who attend a magic school and then go traipsing around an alternate universe which can be accessed via an interstitial forest sounds a lot like "Harry Potter/Narnia for adults." But what that description betrays is a failure to understand that Grossman's series isn't a rip-off of either story, but is instead something newer and stranger than that.

  9. So We Know What’s Been Eating Those Great White Sharks, And Yes, It’s Worthy Of The Syfy Channel

    It's not Sharknado - but it's close.

    Yesterday we told you about a terrifying sea monster that's been rampaging along the coast of Australia, eating great white sharks to death. We (and the the internet's hive mind) speculated that the shark-eating monster could really have been anything from Godzilla to an underwater Sharknado. Now, we think we have some answers.

  10. The First Teaser Trailer For Sharknado 2: The Second One Is Here and Full of Chainsaws

    Hey, we survived Hurricane Sandy. How bad are sharks gonna be?

    While we'll still be forever upset that they did not take our suggestion of Sharknados as the title for the upcoming SyFy movie sequel, there's no denying that this teaser trailer looks excitingly stupid, just like the last flick did. And just like Die Hard 2, this time they're going from L.A. to New York City.
