delphoxThat’s a photo of Doctor Who’s new villain. When the show returns to television for a new season, it’ll have a new Doctor played by Peter Capaldi and a new big bad, played by Keeley Hawes.

Hawes’ character, according to Cinema Blend, is called Ms. Delphox and she’s described as “a powerful out-of-this-world character with a dark secret”. The Doctor and his companion Clara will face off with Mrs. Delphox on a “strange and puzzling planet”. That description could, of course, mean just about anything.


The Last Ship Trailer Needs Firefly’s Adam Baldwin To Cure The World

With Falling Skies successful and headed into a fourth season TNT is looking to add more sci-fi to its roster. Enter The Last Ship, a new series from Transformers director Michael Bay and starring a lot of people, but most importantly starring Adam Baldwin.

Baldwin was Jayne on Firefly and he tends to make just about everything he shows up in, a little better. Everything except this trailer (via Cinema Blend), that is, since it only allows him on screen for about one-second before cutting away to some dramatic, viral stock footage. The trailer does, however do a pretty good job of outlining the show’s premise, and as premises go, it’s a pretty good one.


Falling Skies Season 4 Gets A Trippy First Trailer

fb share tweet share

For its first couple of seasons TNT’s Falling Skies seemed content to be just another one of the many post-apocalyptic shows already wandering around television. It was good, and while it kept hinting at stranger things, for the most part it did little to differentiate itself from the others even if it had aliens. Then last season, the show started to go completely nuts.

Now Falling Skies is on the precipice of turning into something truly strange, unique, and maybe even great. Whether they’ll pull it off depends on what they do in Season 4, and if the show’s new Season 4 trailer is any indication, things are going to get every bit as weird as they need to.

When last we left the tattered remnants of the human race, Tom Mason the sort-of president’s wife had given birth to some sort of human-alien hybrid and been kidnapped by our alien overlords. Mason had stopped moralizing and turned into the guy who just shoots motherfuckers who mess with his family (awesome) and his daughter aged 6 years in two months. The humans are teaming up with other types of aliens to wipe out the ones who attacked them, and things seemed on the verge of coming to a head.

If this trailer is any indication of what we can expect from Falling Skies in season 4, then this show could be about to explode.

Falling Skies season 4 will premiere on TNT June 22, 2014. Expect 12-episodes this season, instead of the meager 10 they did in season 3.

dorianAlmost Human debuted tonight on Fox and dropped Karl Urban into a world filled with robots. So far, the show is focused entirely on the droids tasked with playing police officer, partnered up with human cops to police the grittier than ever, crime-ridden streets of a future 20-years from now. In the process though, it hints at robots doing other jobs in other walks of life, in this future world. The potential here seems limitless.

Netflix Has Dropped Stargate, Find Out How You Can Get It Back

fb share tweet share

Tonight at precisely midnight Netflix dropped Stargate SG-1 from Instant Watch. The move came almost without any warning. I was in the midst of finishing the final season when I noticed a little date in the upper right corner of my screen telling me the show would be dumped from Netflix on August 15th. That warning only appeared on the Netflix app installed on my iPad, and only a few hours before calendar actually flipped over to the 15th. Most people watching through other devices, or even those watching through their website, received no warning at all.

We should have seen this coming. About a month ago Netflix pulled the franchise’s spin-off show Stargate: Atlantis off their network. I was smack dab in the middle of season 3 when they yanked it, and despite repeated requests for information, the video mega-corp has not commented on whether or not they’ll bring it back.

Now they’ve done the same to SG-1 and if you want it back, you’re probably going to have to do something about it.


Matt Smith Is Leaving Doctor Who, It’s Official

fb share tweet share

matt-smithBad news for fans of Doctor Who, the Doctor is about to regenerate. Matt Smith, who has played the eleventh Doctor since 2010, is leaving the show. You’ve already watched his third and final season.

The news comes straight from the BBC where they say Matt will return for the 50th anniversary special and then you’ll see him in the 2013 Doctor Who Christmas special, but Christmas will be the end for the Eleventh Doctor. He’ll regenerate at the end of the special and turn into someone else. That will be the last time you see him flying around in the TARDIS sporting his trademark bowtie.

Matt Smith released the following statement…

Doctor Who has been the most brilliant experience for me as an actor and a bloke, and that largely is down to the cast, crew and fans of the show. I’m incredibly grateful to all the cast and crew who work tirelessly every day, to realize all the elements of the show and deliver Doctor Who to the audience. Many of them have become good friends and I’m incredibly proud of what we have achieved over the last four years.

Having Steven Moffat as showrunner write such varied, funny, mind-bending and brilliant scripts has been one of the greatest and most rewarding challenges of my career. It’s been a privilege and a treat to work with Steven, he’s a good friend and will continue to shape a brilliant world for the Doctor.

The fans of Doctor Who around the world are unlike any other; they dress up, shout louder, know more about the history of the show (and speculate more about the future of the show) in a way that I’ve never seen before, your dedication is truly remarkable. Thank you so very much for supporting my incarnation of the Time Lord, number Eleven, who I might add is not done yet, I’m back for the 50th anniversary and the Christmas special!

It’s been an honor to play this part, to follow the legacy of brilliant actors, and helm the TARDIS for a spell with ‘the ginger, the nose and the impossible one’. But when ya gotta go, ya gotta go and Trenzalore calls. Thank you guys. Matt.
