  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Why You Should Watch Defiance, The Heir to Battlestar Galactica

    Essay

    June 19 marks the return of Defiance, the Syfy drama about a future Earth in which humans and various races of alien must cohabitate. In spite of being a moderate ratings success in its first season, Defiance has failed to garner the kind of critical attention it deserves. By which I mean: The people I love who love sci-fi still aren’t watching this show, and it makes me sad. It’s especially heartbreaking to see the Warehouse 13 fandom donning black armbands in preparation for the last episode and wanting to shout “Guys! There’s a place for you! And HG Wells is there and everything!” Since you have just enough time to catch up on season one, I’m here to tell you why Defiance is the new face of smart sci-fi. Just imagine I’ve got you cornered in a bar and am in that specific stage of drunk where you just want to explain how great something is.

  11. Would You Like To Help Kickstart Stargate Universe Season 3? Do You Have $50 Million?

    Not a Misprint

    Well that's a lofty goal if ever I saw one. Too bad Syfy isn't the one putting it together.

  12. Remake, Reboot, and Sequel News To Make Your Head Explode: The Goonies, 12 Monkeys, and More

    Oh Hollywood

    The "and more," in this case, is a Police Academy reboot, potentially infuriating Point Break remake news, casting for Terminator: Genesis, and screaming. So, so much screaming. Everything is remakes. ONE OF US. ONE OF US.

  13. The Mary Sue Interviews McKenzie Westmore & Gigi Edgley Of Syfy’s Face Off & Jim Henson’s Creature Shop!

    Syfy found a hit in Face Off, the movie makeup reality competition hosted by McKenzie Westmore, the daughter of famed makeup designer Michael Westmore. After several seasons, the network decided it was time to try their luck again with Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge, hosted by Farscape actress, Gigi Edgley. As you can imagine, we were pretty excited for it. With the finale of Face Off Season 6 set to air tonight at 9/8c, and a new episode of Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge to follow, we were happy to get the chance to speak with  both hosts to discuss their highly-enviable jobs.

Both Rebecca and I couldn't get into Helix and I was a fan of Wonderland despite its missteps. Hit the jump for my reaction GIF.

  15. SyFy Wants To Distance Itself From Bad Monster Movies And Return to Its Genre Roots

    About frakkin' time, dudes.

    Good news for geeks, but bad news for horrible B-movie fans: SyFy is officially tired of being the butt of everybody's hilarious Sharknado jokes (Sharnajokes?). They're going to go back that thing they used to do when they were actually called the Sci Fi channel: make good science fiction content.

    Interview

    Syfy's latest supernatural series, Bitten, moves to a new timeslot tonight, Monday at 8/7c. The Mary Sue was fortunate enough to grab an email interview with its star, Laura Vandervoort. You may remember her as Supergirl on The CW's Smallville or Lisa on ABC's V remake. In Bitten, Vandervoort plays Elena, the lone female werewolf hailing from Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld novel series. We asked her about taking on the fan-favorite role, werewolf gender roles, and...the strong female character.
