Kevin Bacon in Tremors TV Series

Back in June of last year we found out that SYFY had ordered a pilot episode for a Tremors TV series, and that one of the stars of the original movie, Kevin Bacon, was going to star. News that excited the many fans of the creature feature franchise, which has since spawned five sequels (or four sequels and one prequel) and an earlier TV series in 2003.

The 2003 series was also on SYFY (which was called Sci-Fi Channel at the time) and starred Michael Gross, who has also appeared in all six movies, but it was canceled after only 13 episodes. Now it appears the first attempt has made SYFY a little nervous, as the network has decided to pass on the new Tremors series after only a pilot.

Bacon himself shared the news, and those who were working on the project are surprised by the decision. You can see what they’ve had to say about it below, which also includes some images from the pilot.

Nightflyers

We’re getting our first look at Nightflyers, an upcoming series based on the 1980 novella of the same name written by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin.

The show, which is described by Martin in the video as “a haunted house story on a starship” and “Psycho in space,” is a fusion of science fiction, horror, and psychological thriller. It follows a team of scientists on a mission to find life in the universe, and stars Eoin Macken, Gretchen Mol, David Ajala, Sam Strike, Maya Eshet, Angus Sampson, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Brían F. O’Byrne.

SXSW 2018: How Syfy’s Superman-Less ‘Krypton’ Will Still Embody The Man Of Steel

Syfy's Krypton

Creators of the upcoming Syfy series Krypton were on hand at DC’s pop-up SXSW store this weekend to share what fans can expect from a Superman TV show, which doesn’t actually include Superman himself.

For those living under a rock, Krypton is a prequel series set about 200 years before the explosion of the planet Krypton, which comic geeks will know is the event that led to baby Kal-El to be sent off in a rocket headed for Earth. As such, the show will focus on Superman’s grandfather Seg-El, father Jor-El, and a smattering of characters from the greater DC universe. And since the planet Krypton orbits a red sun, Kryptonians won’t exactly have the sort of powers we’re used to seeing in Metropolis, so to speak. Still, Krypton’s show creators explained that this makes for fertile ground when it comes to storytelling.

SYFY Orders ‘Happy!’ Season 2

SYFY's Happy!

I don’t get to watch a lot of new TV shows I’m interested in checking out. Mainly because I’m terrible at keeping up with them. A molasses-slow consumer of all things entertainment. If it’s not called Game of Thrones, chances are I’m way behind.

But one new show I just had to check out recently was SYFY’s Happy! and man, am I glad I did. Pretty much every way to describe how crazy the show is has been used by those who have watched it, and they’re all accurate. It’s the most batshit bonkers TV show I have ever seen. Which is why it’s so exciting to learn that SYFY has officially ordered a season two.

Blood Drive 1.13 Season 1 finale

Blood Drive
Season 1 Episode 13: “Finish Line” (Season 1 Finale)
Created by James Roland
Directed by David Straiton
Written by James Roland
Starring Alan Ritchson, Christina Ochoa, Thomas Dominique, Marama Corlett, Colin Cunningham, Andrew Hall, Darren Kent, Renee Castle, Alex McGregor
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 10pm

Blood Drive on SYFY has gained a cult following since debuting over the Summer. Created by James Roland, the grindhouse series captures the essence of the grit and grainy genre, feeling like a companion piece to the Video Nasty sub-culture of the late ’70s and ’80s. The retro vibe influenced its die hard super fans to adopt the nickname Bleeders on social media. This is the final stretch of the Blood Drive, as the racers are now on course, heading straight toward the evil Heart Enterprises. The unlikely alliance of Grace (Christina Ochoa), Arthur (Alan Ritchson) and Slink (Colin Cunningham) is looking to destroy Heart once and for all.

Last week, Arthur was “Primo,” the Blood Drive King. That was until Grace helped him realize he was being set up to slaughter. Christopher (Thomas Dominique) betrayed him… but it was a Heart-produced robot Christopher, the real one locked away in Heart’s dungeons, along with his cybertronic girlfriend Aki (Marama Corlett). I have to be honest, this is awfully bittersweet. Blood Drive started as pure guilty pleasure, but evolved into a truly unique and memorable viewing experience, each week playing off a different grindhouse sub-genre. It very quickly became my favorite show of 2017. Hopefully, the relentless work of the Bleeders to trend #RenewBloodDrive will get to those in high places and it can somehow gain a second season.

Check out my review for the Season 1 finale of Blood Drive here below.

Blood Drive 1.12

Blood Drive
Season 1 Episode 12: “Faces of Blood Drive”
Created by James Roland
Directed by David Straiton
Written by Harrison Weinfeld & Daniel Zucker
Starring Alan Ritchson, Christina Ochoa, Thomas Dominique, Marama Corlett, Colin Cunningham, Andrew Hall, Darren Kent, Renee Castle, Alex McGregor
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, August 30th, 2017, 10pm

We’ve reached the penultimate episode for Syfy’s grindhouse summer series Blood Drive. That begs the question, WHY THE **** HASN’T THIS SHOW BEEN RENEWED YET?!?! Sorry… Blood Drive has quickly become a cult favorite akin to video nasty-style gore-tastic films it so often pays homage to. Its fanbase on social media are called #Bleeders.

Last week, we finally got to see goody-two-shoes cop Arthur Bailey (Alan Ritchson) snap. Thinking Grace (Christina Ochoa) was killed in the battle dome, he became the Primo, and singlehandedly murdered everyone left in the pit much to the applause of Slink (Colin Cunningham) and the execs at Heart Enterprises. We also watched in awe as Karma (Alex McGregor) emerged from the skin of Old Man Heart to surprise Grace. While all that mayhem and debauchery was taking place, Aki (Marama Corlett) and Christopher (Thomas Dominique) broke into Heart, overriding their systems, allowing them to move unfettered onward to help Arthur. If you couldn’t tell by this week’s title, this episode will likely be an homage to the notorious series of tapes that emerged in the 1980s…

Air Date: Wednesday, August 23, 2017, 10pm

Welcome Bleeders to another recap installment of SYFY’s original series, Blood Drive. Last week, Arthur encountered a town near The Scar which appeared as a paradise. The problem was a mind-altering gas leak from The Scar turned the reality (post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with morlocks) into fantasy (quaint little old timey town where everyone is beautiful). Grace (Christina Ochoa) figured this out quick, but Arthur (Alan Ritchson) was under the spell. Soon, both were in danger of drowning in shit if not for an unlikely hero… Slink (Colin Cunningham). Saving them from death was not a hero’s mission for him; he needed them back in the Blood Drive. Arthur and Grace finally came together. Meanwhile, Aki (Marama Corlett) and Christopher (Thomas Dominique) are finally on the same page and en route to save his old partner. How long will this “friendship” between Grace, Arthur, and Slink last? Let’s find out…

Air Date: Wednesday, August 16th, 2017, 10pm

Last week on SYFY’s Blood Drive Grace (Christina Ochoa) drove a wounded and dying Arthur (Alan Ritchson) to the edge of the Scar. The only place around was a bizarre Chinese restaurant, a sort of purgatory for it’s owner. Meanwhile, poor Arthur went on the vision quest from Hell, being tortured physically and mentally, before ending up crucified by his personal demons. The ghosts of Blood Drive past all showed to torment him, and while he languished, Grace made a choice that could save Arthur and possibly put her life on the line. Such is life in the Scar.

Check out my review of tonight’s Blood Drive below.
