Z Nation - New Season

Z Nation, the action-horror series on the Syfy channel returns tonight with its all new season. The post-apocalyptic show focuses on humanity’s ongoing struggle against zombies infused with all of the action and camp that you’d expect from a Syfy series. The show is the polar opposite from The Walking Dead, and that is not a bad thing. There is plenty of room for all sorts of zombie shows. The new episode is on at 10pm.

Z Nation, “The Murphy”
Description: In the Season 2 premiere, moments have passed since Murphy triggered the launch of tactical nuclear weapons and it’s every man/woman for themselves as the group split up and try to outrun the impending blast. Meanwhile, Citizen Z finds himself battling thawed zombies and unable to communicate with the team, which leads him to make a desperate move that prompts the arrival of a mysterious and deadly bounty hunter.

Sharknado was amazing. Truly amazing. It was “lightening in a bottle” for the SyFy channel, so there was never a doubt if their would be a sequel. Will it live up to the original?

“It’s happening again.”

With that one line of dialogue, SyFy has hooked me. The over the top dramatic trailer with an iconic shot of Ian Ziering holding his signature chainsaw also helps. The TV movie will be unleased on Wednesday, July 30th, and joining Ziering from the original will be Tara Reid along with a new crop of characters played by Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath, Kari Wuhrer, Courtney Baxter, Dante Palminteri, and other shark bait.

Excited for the idea of a “sharknado” in New York City? Feel like there is no way they can top the first movie?

SyFy Series: Rewind

This is exactly the type of show I want to see from SyFy, the network that was formerly the Sci-Fi Channel. I’ve been so tired of endless (and cheap) reality shows and wrestling (still, really?). Sharknado was a shot in the arm and I’m glad to see that SyFy is moving forward with new high-concept shows.

Tonight is the premiere of Rewind, a new series that mixes the end of the world, terrorism, and time travel. Add the fact that the pilot epsiode guest stars Lost alum Jeff Fahey and genre director David Cronenberg, and you have a show that is making the right early moves. The series stars Whale Rider star Keisha Castle-Hughes, along with Shane McRae, Robbie Jones, Jennifer Ferrin, and Keon Mohajeri.

Official Description, “Pilot”: A team of military operatives and civilian scientists travel through time using untested technology in order to alter events and hopefully prevent a devastating terrorist attack.

The first episode is two hours long, it premieres on the SyFy channel tonight at 9pm (and I’m sure will reair at least half a dozen times in the next week). It should be interesting to see where the series goes from here? Do they change the past and have to live with an unknown future? Do they keep going back in time trying to alter the future more? Are they stranded in the past with limited knowledge of how to stop what they know already happened? There are so many places that a series about time travel can go, I can’t wait to see the route Rewind chooses to take.

What else is on tonight?

12Monkeys-Movie

In recent years a lot of older properties have been dusted off and re-purposed on television and in comic books (not even counting the endless supply of remakes), but 12 Monkeys was not a movie I expected to get new life. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the SyFy Channel is turning the brain-melting Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt sci-fi flick into a series.

The 1995 film was directed by Terry Gilliam from a screenplay from David Webb Peoples, who adapted Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? into Blade Runner, and Janet Peoples. The movie show us a grim view of the future were only 1% of the population has survived a mysterious and very lethal virus, which has forced the survivors to live underground. In an attempt to learn more about the virus’ origins, James Cole (Willis), a convict, volunteers to be sent back in time. What follows is a twisty/turny nonlinear mind f$*% that wraps up nicely. I can see how they’d be able to stretch the idea into a series, but I’m not sure it would have the same appeal or affect as the movie. Lost and Twin Peaks with a touch of the Terminator could make a pretty darn cool series.

The new version of 12 Monkeys will start as a TV movie with the potential to become a “straight-to-series” order of 8 to 10 episodes. It is being penned by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett. Both Matalas and Fickett wrote for the time travel/dinosaur family drama Terra Nova. Atlas Entertainment and Universal Cable Productions are behind the project with Jon Cassar (24, Daybreak, Revolution, Terra Nova, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues) attached to direct the 90 minute TV movie/series pilot. No word on when it would make it to our screens.

Back in 2009 we talked about Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks TV striking a deal to bring Stephen King’s Under the Dome to television, and after three years the project is finally happening! Out is DreamWorks TV and in is Spielberg’s Amblin Television along with CBS Television Studios and producers Neal Baer, Stephen King, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Stacey Snider and Brian K. Vaughan. The show is skipping the pilot stage and going straight to series with a 13-episode pickup slated to premiere in summer 2013.Under the Dome focuses on a small New England town that is cut off fromt he rest of the world by an invisible force field that causes ecological effects and a fight for control within the isolated population. It is perfectly suited for being adapted for television.

From out of the blue it looks like the potential DC Comic Booster Gold television series is still a possibility thanks to SyFy channel and Arrow showrunner Andrew Kreisberg, who is heading up the potential Gold series. IGN asked Kreisberg for an update on the project and he told them; “Booster Gold is going in in the next couple weeks before Christmas. We’ll see what happens from there. It’s such a different project even though they’re both DC Comics properties. Booster is much more candy and popcorn, being about time travel and changing the future and being a superhero who can fly. But they’re both super-fun projects. As a lifelong DC Comics fan, I am beyond blessed to be working on these projects with all these amazing characters.” There is so much potential for the series. Timecop meets superheroes with a lighthearted/comedic underlining. If they are allowed to use other DC characters throughout time it would be even better. Have Booster Gold travel to the golden and silver ages of the DC Comics universe and showcase different heroes and villains that are well known. I just hope that SyFy doesn’t hold it back and make the series take place in present day.

WWE Monday Night Raw recently had its 1000th episode [SEE: WWE Raw’s 1000th Episode Review] and I have no doubt that WWE SmackDown will eventually make that milestone. Week in and week out you can always count on the WWE to deliver new programming in their never ending “sports entertainment/soap opera”. They book end the work week airing Raw on Mondays and SmackDown on Fridays. This week continues the march to this years Summer Slam, which is this Sunday and will be presented live on pay per view from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The spotlight is on Sheamus and the question of who he will face for his World Heavyweight title.
