TV Review: Blood Drive 1.1 “The F…ing Cop”
Dr. Zaius   |  

Blood Drive 101-01

Blood Drive
Season 1 Episode 1: “The F…ing Cop”
Directed by David Straiton
Written by James Roland
Created by James Roland
Starring Alan Ritchson, Christina Ochoa, Thomas Dominique, Marama Corlett, Colin Cunningham, Andrew Hall, Darren Kent
FOX
Air Date: Wednesday, June 14th, 2017, 10pm

Midnight Grindhouse debuted Blood Drive Wednesday night on Syfy. With a story straight out of a cheap schlocky drive thru double feature, and promising splatter effects akin to Peter Jackson’s early filmography, James Roland’s Blood Drive offered something wholly different from what you’re used to in mid-week cable dramas. Cars with engines that devour human beings, heroes that curse, and all sorts of horror-themed “grindhouse” characters… Blood Drive has it all. The previews promised all sorts of “grindhouse” inspired baddies like cults, cannibals, monsters, and all the raunch you can throw in. Plot and acting are not what is important here. This show proudly attempts to be as in your face and graphically visceral as possible. I’m genuinely excited to see not if the show crosses the line, but how far past the line the show can go.

Dr. Zaius   |  

Sharknado 5

Topical political satire is the trendy thing. Even Netflix’s House of Cards felt cut and pasted out of the newspaper headlines. So with climate change on everyone’s mind, and the same week President Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris Accords, we now get the brand new title for SyFy’s newest entry in the “in”famous Sharknado series… Sharknado 5: Global Swarming! The fifth film will debut on SyFy channel on August 6th, carrying the tagline, “Make America Bait Again.”

Starring Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, Summer Bishil, Rick Worthy, Jade Tailor
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, April 19th, 2017, 9:00pm

Last time on The Magicians, Julia, Quentin, and Mayakovsky (Stella Maeve, Jason Ralph, Brían F. O’Byrne) successfully merged Alice’s (Olivia Taylor Dudley) shade with her Niffin, resurrecting her. But she was upset and hating Quentin, furiously writing down spells as she was losing her magical knowledge. Reynard (Mackenzie Astin) killed his son’s wife to get him on his side. What? Of course, that didn’t work. He forced Kady (Jade Tailor) to kill him to get the magic they all needed. Now that worked, although Kady was really messed up. They lured Reynard, but then the real Lady of the Underground came and Julia allowed her to take him. Kady was furious, but the reward for Julia was her shade. Penny (Arjun Gupta) and Sylvia find the book they need, and Sylvia sacrificed herself so Penny could take it. Q found the clock – the buyer was Umber, who was supposedly dead. He had no use for Fillory, and told Q that Umber doesn’t either, which was why everything was turning crazy (crazier) there.

Spoilers for the finale below!

Last time on The Magicians, Julia and Quentin (Stella Maeve, Jason Ralph) made it to the Underworld via dragon, and spent some time with the real Richard (Mackenzie Astin) and the dead hedge witches to find where the shades were kept. They found Julia’s shade… and Alice’s too. They escaped taking the Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) shade also. Penny (Arjun Gupta) teamed up with his teen supervisor, Sylvia (Roan Curtis), to get into the Poison room. Senator Gaines (Christopher Gorham), horrified by his father, teamed up with Kady (Jade Tailor). After King Idri (Leonard Roberts) and others were turned into rats, Eliot threw Margo (Hale Appleman, Summer Bishil) in the dungeon because of the fairy deal, then got kicked out of Fillory for introducing democracy. Margo went to fairy land to rescue Fen (Brittany Curran).

The Magicians
Season 2 Episode 11: “The Rattening”
Directed by James L. Conway

Starring Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, Summer Bishil, Rick Worthy, Jade Tailor
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, April 5th, 2017, 9:00pm

Last time on The Magicians, Penny (Arjun Gupta) got his first task, to retrieve a way overdue library book. The borrower had advice for Kady (Jade Tailor) and put a spell on the card, so another librarian killed himself rather than be forced to open the “Poison Room.” Eliot (Hale Appleman) was acting like “Groomzilla.” Margo (Summer Bishil) confessed to Fen (Brittany Curran), who told her to fix it before being kidnapped by the fairies. Quentin took drugs and saw Julia’s shade in a vision, who asked him for help. Dean Fogg (Rick Worthy) helped Julia and Q (Stella Maeve, Jason Ralph) talk to another version of Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) who knows about shades (they have all lived and died 39 times). She told Q that they are in the Underworld and they need an ancient one, a dragon, to get there and come back.

The Magicians
Season 2 Episode 10: “The Girl Who Told Time”
Directed by Joshua Butler
Written by Noga Landau, Henry Alonso Myers
Created by Sera Gamble & John McNamara
Based on the novel by Lev Grossman
Starring Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, Summer Bishil, Rick Worthy, Jade Tailor
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, March 29th, 2017, 9:00pm

Last week on The Magicians, I witnessed a great moment in television history, as Eliot (Hale Appleman) prepped for a duel with the King of Loria by singing “One Day More” from Les Miserables, only my favorite Broadway show of all time. Eliot fought with a magic sword until magic “pooped” out. Margo (Summer Bishil) made a deal with the fairies to restore the wellspring in exchange for Fen (Brittany Curran) and Eliot’s child. Eliot found out he can have a husband too, so decided to marry the king and unite the kingdoms. Julia, Kady, and Penny (Stella Maeve, Jade Tailor, Arjun Gupta) kidnapped Reynard’s son, who showed up, almost killed Q (Julia’s fault), and got him back. Q (Jason Ralph) freed Niffin Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley).

Starring Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, Summer Bishil, Rick Worthy, Jade Tailor
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017, 9:00pm

Last time on The Magicians, Julia (Stella Maeve) had no shade and therefore no limits. Quentin (Jason Ralph) barely saved her from Reynard (Mackenzie Astin) because of her lack of judgment. He plopped her in Fillory for Margo to watch her (as if she did not have enough to worry about). Margo tried to reason with the trees to no avail, so Julia blew them up. Margo (Summer Bishil) threw her in a dungeon. Eliot (Hale Appleman) finally woke up after a kick ass speech from Margo to Fen (Brittany Curran). Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) took Q’s body for a spin for a Niffin escape. She was told to free herself from Q for the answers. Penny (Arjun Gupta) declared his love for Kady (Jade Tailor) and sentenced himself to a life of servitude to help her. He went into Q’s head and saw Alice who tried to kill him.

Last time on The Magicians, the whole gang decided to rob a bank because… money. The bank had magic wards to get through. Margo (Summer Bishil) led the charge, and it took bees, a literal disco ball, and Eliot (Hale Appleman) dying (not totally) to get the gold. Julia’s (Stella Maeve) baby was exorcised at a price and Fillory filled its coffers.

Spoilers for tonight’s episode below.
