Blood Drive on Syfy is television’s weekly foray into grindhouse madness. Last week there were Mad Max-style Amazon biker babes who used men as milk machines, you know the usual. Things came crashing down though for Grace (Christina Ochoa) whose entire motivation for joining the Drive was to rescue and help her sister Karma (Alex McGregor), found out Karma died initiating a rebellion that created the female-dominated society in the desert. The range of of emotions shown by Ochoa was fascinating. Usually such a sarcastic stone-cold badass, the episode ended with her heartbroken to silence as Arthur (Alan Ritchson), ever the steadfast and stoic good guy, tried desperately to reassure her things would get better. Getting better, is staying alive in the Blood Drive and defeating Heart Enterprises.

Spoilers below for last night’s episode of Preacher!

Last week on AMC’s Preacher, our three motley heroes faced different challenges. There was no dodging unkillable cowboys from Hell or hunting down God. Last week was about Jesse (Dominic Cooper) making a decision whether or not to kill Viktor (Paul Ben-Victor) aka Tulip’s husband. Jesse was fueled by jealousy and revenge. Tulip (Ruth Negga) could only stay back and hope Jesse didn’t cross the line and as usual, Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) was stuck between his rock and her hard place. Jesse made the right call, letting Viktor live after signing divorce papers, and the trio appeared back on track. Unfortunately for everyone involved, especially Viktor, The Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish) made it to New Orleans and is one step closer to getting his Preacher once and for all.

Interview: Meet Julie Ann Emery From AMC’s ‘Preacher’
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Preacher Julie Ann Emery

Preacher on AMC is one of the craziest hours on TV week in week out. Approaching the midway point of its second season, each episode has offered jaw dropping scenes, combining Tarantino level violence with laugh out loud comedy. This season features a search for God himself, an unstoppable cowboy from Hell, and actual Hell where a character called “Arseface” routinely talks with Hitler. This week at San Diego Comic Con, the gang from Preacher showed off a trailer for the second half of the season, which focused on The Grail, an evil organization competing with our heroes to find God. The only member of the Grail we got a close look at was Lara Featherstone (Julie Ann Emery). Back in episode 3, Emery first was a sultry blonde lounge singer who attracted the attention of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper). She proved way more than meets the eye, after sharing some intense screen time with Jesse, the audience watched as Lara ditched her wig and revealed her true identity. Last week, I got a chance to speak with Julie Ann Emery about her role on Preacher, the show, and her career.

Check out that interview below.

First off, apologies on the lateness of this one, I was in a hotel with poor channel selection and no wifi. But alas, I was excited to get home and catch up on the craziness I missed on last week’s Blood Drive on Syfy. Last week, Grace (Christina Ochoa) had to bail out Arthur (Alan Ritchson) after a sex plague took over the Blood Drive party. Slink (Colin Cunningham) managed to escape torture and death several times, and as payment to Grace planned a stop on this week’s drive for her to get her sister back. Meanwhile, Christopher (Thomas Dominique) and his new $20 million machine eye are officially working for Heart Enterprises, but his cyborg-dominatrix girlfriend Aki (Marama Corlett) doesn’t realize (yet) that he’s an inside man. This week, the Drive continues…

SDCC 2017 Th Flash

More news rolls in from San Diego Comic Con, this time about everyone’s favorite speedster, Barry Allen and CW’s The Flash. Perhaps the most consistently entertaining and engrossing of the DC(TV)EU, The Flash ended its third season with Barry (Grant Gustin) saving Iris (Candice Patton) from death at the hands of Savitar. Unfortunately, as often happens with Flash’s super speed, space and time were disturbed causing Barry to surrender himself to the Speed Force. Fear not, though as The Flash returns this October for season 4 and according to SDCC 2017, he’ll have new villains and actors to deal with.

SDCC 2017 Conan Wonder Woman

Maybe the only thing better than San Diego Comic-Con is the annual tradition of Conan O’Brien doing his show from San Diego with big time guests and surprises. Yesterday marked the beginning of the 4-day geekfest, and Conan was on his way south with co-host Andy Richter driving. Then came the music dispute. Andy only had a tape with one song, “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO. Andy wanted his song repeatedly for the 2+ hour drive, Conan was ready to toss the tape. Andy tossed Conan.

Check out where he ended up before SDCC 2017 below.

Comic Review: John Carpenter’s Tales Of Science Fiction: Vault #1 By James Ninness

John Carpenters Tales of Science Fiction James Ninness

John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction: Vault #1
Created & Written by James Ninness
Pencils & Inks by Andres Esparza
Colored by Sergio Martinez
Cover by Nick Percival
Lettered by Janice Chiang
Edited by Sandy King
Published by Storm King Productions
Release Date: July 26th, 2017

“There are moments when all of humanity goes to the same three words… What the F*ck?”

John Carpenter is known by his legions of fans as “The Master of Horror.” But when you look back at the visionary director’s filmography you see the influence and impact science fiction has had on his over 50-year career. His first feature film was 1974’s Dark Star, a sci-fi comedy set in the reaches of deep space. After hitting it big with Halloween in 1978, a film that became the highest grossing independent film ever made at the time, he would return to sci-fi multiple times. Possibly his greatest achievement was 1982’s The Thing, a remake of the Howard Hawks 50s classic about an alien who grotesquely impersonates crew members in the Antarctic. He returned to the genre with Starman (1984), They Live (1987), Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992), and Ghosts of Mars (2001). Carpenter is now devoted to new mediums to translate his unique visions of horror and science fiction. Alongside his wife and collaborator Sandy King Carpenter, they have ventured into the world of graphic novels and comics, releasing titles like Asylum Vol 1 and 2 as well as Tales For A Halloween Night for Storm King Comics.

Previously on AMC’s Preacher, the search for God carried our three heroes to New Orleans. Jesse (Dominic Cooper) cruised jazz clubs, running into sultry blonde Lara Featherstone (Julie Ann Emery). He rescued her from a van full of white clad goons, and rescued himself from her advances. Tulip’s past caught up to her via an army of henchmen that brought her to Viktor (Paul Ben-Victor). Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) finally caved and revealed to Jesse that Tulip (Ruth Negga) was missing, which set Jesse off on a crusade. He unleashed the power of Genesis to save Tulip from Viktor… her husband. Meanwhile, Jesse’s jealousy, fear, and rage all distracted him from the fact that The Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish) tracked Genesis, and he was quickly approaching.

Spoilers below for last’s night episode of Preacher.
