fb share tweet share

Summer Glau may not be a household name, but within a certain segment of the population, she’s a goddamned superstar. You love her, and you’ll always love her because she was in Firefly, not to mention the underappreciated Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. She may have been a robot in that second show, but now in the webseries Jeff 1000 she’s become best buds with a 10-foot-tall, not-quite-killer mechanoid.

Hulu Picks Up State Of Syn Webseries Starring Stargate/Firefly Vets

fb share tweet share

Wouldn’t it be awesome if we had good news about a new Stargate or Firefly TV series? Hell, even mentioning those words is enough to whip many a fan up into a frenzy of foaming, twitching anticipation. Sadly, the closest we’re going to get to those anytime soon are the Stargate reboot trilogy and the Serenity comic series. But we do have a small consolation prize for the devoted, in the form of a new web series that’s chockablock with actors from Stargate: Atlantis and Firefly (okay, only one from the latter, but Jewel Staite is adorable and thus counts as several people). Welcome to the State of Syn, a new web series that just signed a deal to premiere the rest of its episodes on Hulu. Check out the first episode below.

Crowdfund A Star Trek Webseries And A Fan Film Of Joss Whedon’s Fray

fb share tweet share

Along with Star Wars, Star Trek has got to be the source of more fan films and webseries than pretty much anything else. Some of them are purely amateur efforts, and others, such as Star Trek: Phase II, have enlisted talent from the Original Series itself — in Phase II’s case, actors Walter Koenig and George Takei, and writers David Gerrold and D.C. Fontana, among others. Now an ambitious new Trek webseries has turned to Kickstarter…and has already met its goal of raising $100,000 with a week yet to go.

Watch The New Walking Dead Webseries The Oath

fb share tweet share

We’re less than two weeks away from the return of AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead. What that means for fans it that we’ll be inundated with trailers, clips, commercials, photos, and, starting today, a new series of web shorts called “The Oath.” Conceived, produced, and directed by special effects guru Greg Nicotero (who oddly enough directed an episode of the main series last season also called “The Oath”), these three episodes, like similar previous offerings, aim to give you a quick glimpse at different aspects of the zombie apocalypse, and remind you that Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company aren’t the only ones to make it through. It’ll be interesting to see if any of these dovetail into the new Walking Dead spinoff series that the network recently announced.

The first eight-minute installment of “The Oath” starts off with an image that will be familiar to fans. The woman cradling the corpse of a loved one in the middle of a makeshift campsite is eerily similar to that of Andrea (Laurie Holden) holding her dead sister, waiting for her to come back so that she can kill her again, from early in the first season of The Walking Dead.

Starhunter: Short-Lived Canadian Show Returns As A Webseries

fb share tweet share

starhunterWith all the sequels, prequels, and reboots (Oh my!) of such high-profile franchises as Godzilla and The Terminator, one wonders why more lesser-known but still beloved properties aren’t being brought back out of the woodwork. After all, shouldn’t it be just as important to bring new audiences to cult projects as it is to maintain a well-known property’s mainstream audiences? Well, fans of the short-lived Canadian sci-fi series Starhunter will (probably) be very pleased to learn that it will soon be resurrected as a web series, and will be popping up a few other places as well. It may be frustrating to some that the show, which has gained something of a cult following of the years, isn’t coming back to an actual network, but this could always lead to that, should its popularity carry over.

The Toronto-based creative studio Starfield Indie recently acquired the worldwide rights to Starhunter from Green Opal, and the series’ original creators, Daniel D’or and Philip Jackson, will again be working with writer Nelu Ghiran in figuring out how to bring the show to today’s audiences. Starting in November of this year, their plans are to produce 26 webisodes, ranging from 8 to 15 minutes each.
