It’s Friday so that often means previews for new Syfy shows. Well, if you’re a fan of Syfy series like Defiance and Warehouse 13, you’re in luck, because today is no exception.
Firstly, Defiance is all-new; An old war buddy of Nolan’s comes to town chasing after an arms dealer, who quickly becomes a dangerous threat to the town. You can watch a sneak peek, as well as a behind-the-scenes clip of the the VFX.
Next, check out the sneak peek for a new Warehouse 13, as well as a best-lines clip from last week. It’s all to be found right after the break. So, what are you waiting for?
Loof for Defiance and Warehouse 13 on Mondays starting at 9/8C on Syfy.
It should be no surprise that we support Sci-Fi around here. Even when it’s spelled Syfy. Regardless of how you spell it, a cool syfy show is a cool sci-fi show.
Two of these cool shows are Warehouse 13 and Defiance, which has just been renewed for a second season. Both air on Monday nights on Syfy and we’ve got preview for Monday’s new episodes to share with you today.
First off, during an all-new Defiance, Amanda & Nolan take a transport across the badlands to transport a prisoner. Of course, things don’t go as planned. Shocking, right?
Then on Warehouse 13, it’s a black-and-white, noir episode with guest stars Missi Pyle and Enrico Colantoni. Those crazy kids from Galaxy Quest back together again. Good times indeed.
It all start Monday at 9/8C on Syfy with Defiance followed by Warehouse 13. Check out all the previews after the break.
As fantasty series go, Syfy’s Merlin has got pretty much everything you could want. Action, drama, suspense, a good cast and lots of magic. Like we said, pretty much everything you could ask for in a fantasy series.
The show is back on Syfy now and in its fifth season. And as we’ve done before, we’re going to be bringing you previews of new episodes as we get them.
To kick things off this week, we’ve got a preview for Friday’s episode “The Kindness of Strangers.” In this one, Morgana realizes the path to Emrys and the throne of Camelot might just be quickest going through the powerful wizard Alator.
We’ll see if she’s right. Or, if she’s made a bit of a mistake.
Check out the preview after the break and look for Merlin Friday, May 10 at 10/9C on Syfy.
In keeping with the somewhat medieval theme we’ve got going today, here’s a trailer for the upcoming Syfy original movie Dungeons & Dragons: The Book of Vile Darkness. We’re bringing this to you not because we expect all that much from it, we just keep hoping someone will make a decent D&D movie someday.
Maybe this is it? More than likely, not. Still, we keep hope alive. Mostly because what the heck else are we gonna do?
Also, this one features Meagan Good (who’s hot) and, well, some other pretty people, so at least there’s something to look at when the story and everything else falls apart. Optimists? We try.
The movie premieres on Syfy November 24th at 9/8C. Check out the trailer after the break.
For those of you anxiously waiting for another series that takes place in the Battlestar Galactica universe (and really, who isn’t?), you’re wait appears to be coming to an end. That’s right, the much anticipated Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome series now has a premiere date.
However, before you get your hopes up too high, the show won’t actually be airing on a TV network or, actually, on TV at all. Well, not at first anyway. Confused?
This handy press release from Universal explains it all. Bottom line? You’ll be able to see the show online first and then on Syfy and then on Blu-ray, etc. So, that’s a good thing.
LOS ANGELES – November 5, 2012 – Universal Cable Productions (UCP) will launch for the first time a three-tiered windowing strategy including online, TV and home entertainment, for Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, a spinoff of the blockbuster Battlestar Galactica series franchise. Fans will first view Blood & Chrome when it premieres exclusively on Machinima’s premium channel, Machinima Prime (YouTube.com/MachinimaPrime), beginning November 9. The initial online debut introduces the latest segment of the revered TV series franchise to a new generation of fans while also launching the multi-platform strategy.
Even though they ended up changing their name, let us not forget that Syfy used to be called Sci-Fi and did, in fact, care about the genere we all know as, well, Sci-Fi. Returning to their roots, the channel has a new, upcoming drama called Defiance.
The show takes place in a future Earth ravaged by interstellar war and inhabited by surviving humans and aliens. To get your interested in it, we’ve got a clip/preview for the show below.
Defiance stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Fionnula Flanagan, Mia Kirshner and Graham Greene. Some people in that list you should recognize.
We think it looks pretty good. What say you America (and elsewhere)? Look for Defiance to premiere on Syfy in April of 2013.
With all the great shows and all the networks available to provide you with entertainment, it’s important to point out some shows we really like. Well, it’s important to us at least, and that’s all that really matters.
Some of these shows we like are Syfy’s originals Warehouse 13, Alphas and Lost Girl. All three offer some great characters and often intense drama and stories we enjoy. Plus, you can now enjoy two showings of Alphas on Mondays instead of one.
This new development calls for some previews and previews we have! In fact, for all three shows. Check them all out after the break.
Alphas kicks things off Mondays at 8/7C followed by Warehouse 13. Lost Girl airs Fridays at 9/8C.
With the next generation of gaming’s announcement looming over E3 2013 after both Microsoft and Sony were silent during this year’s expo, the focus has changed for game’s of this year’s E3 being innovators in their own right. While game’s like Scribblenauts Unlimited promise to give players more creative options in the way they solve puzzles, other titles like Defiance promise to span across different forms of media in a truly unique scenario.
Way back in the Star Wars Galaxies MMO, players would experience player events which promised an impact on the future story of the game based upon how the playerbase performed. If more Rebels completed a mission, they would earn more benefits for their factions in the coming months. Defiance looks to take the roots of this premise and expand it in a way never before seen.
Defiance is going to be an MMOTPS (Massive Multiplayer Online Third Person Shooter). This isn’t the first time an MMO shooter has been attempted as Planetside came out years ago and had a relative degree of success, enough that Planetside 2 is on its way. Unlike Planetside, Defiance will take place on earth and include PvE (player vs. environment) gameplay and not just straight PvP. But that’s not the defining feature that looks to set Defiance apart. In addition to being a game produced by Trion Worlds and coming to XBox 360, PlayStation 3 and the PC, it will concurrently launch with a series for SyFy TV.
We probably don’t give enough attention to shows like Eureka and Lost Girl. With Eureka, you’ve got a show that’s been on for several seasons yet still manages to deliver great characters and compelling episodes as it leads up to it’s series finale.
Then, there’s Lost Girl. A fairly new show on Syfy that even from the beginning looked to be an interesting mix of genres and features interesting characters and situations. Plus, the lead character is a succubus who feeds off of people’s sexual energy, so there’s that.
Anyway, both shows had brand new episodes last night on Syfy and we’ve got bonus scenes from both of them to share with you today. In addition, we’ve also got previews for next week’s all new episodes of both shows too.
No, no need to thank us. We do it because we love you. Check out all the videos after the jump and look for Eureka and Lost Girl next Monday starting at 9/8C on Syfy.
You may not realize this but reality shows usually cost far less to produce than traditional drama or comedy shows. That’s one of the main reasons you see so many of them on TV. They don’t cost much and if successful can rake in considerable profits for a network.
And as we know, Hollywood is all about profits. So, it should come as no surprise that even a network like Syfy is pushing farther into the reality show space with five new series it announced today.
These new gems include Hot Set, Paranormal Highway, Ghost Mine, Viral Video Showdown and Collection Intervention. We’ve got descriptions for each of the shows right here. See if you think they sound as bad as we do. Although, we did enjoy Syfy’s Face Off and those guys are also producing Hot Set, so maybe that one won’t be as bad as the others sound. Let’s hope.
Hot Set– From the producers of Syfy’s hit series Face Off, Hot Set is an extreme design challenge pitting two Hollywood production designers each week in a head-to-head battle to design, build, decorate and ultimately create an original and signature movie set that transports the viewer into an immersive world.
Since Ron Moore’s Battlestar Galactica went off the air a few years ago, there have been plenty of fans with a critical response as to the way the storylines got wrapped up and had a less-than impressive ending.
Now, through the genius of College Humor, they have managed to sum up all 4 seasons of the epic sci-fi series into a simple RPG circa the mid 1990s. With all of the wonderful text-based options to boot.
So if you were a fan of the series, or not so much, you will thoroughly enjoy this video game satire. If only it were real…Take a look after the jump.
Superheroes are huge now, incase you weren’t up to speed. With films like Dark Knight and Spider-Man making over a billion dollars in the worldwide box office, that means you’re going to see movie and TV studios make bolder decisions that lean towards comic book properties that could bring eyeballs (and dollar signs) to their company.
That’s just what Syfy is looking to do, as they have ordered a script from Greg Berlanti, who wrote Green Lantern, as well as helped shape the story of ABC’s Modern Family, which will focus on DC’s anti-hero from the future, Booster Gold. THR has the report.
The story will center on Booster Gold, a washed-up athlete from the future who travels back to the present in hopes of becoming the greatest super hero of all time. Instead of chasing criminals, however, his main priority is chasing fame and money. But Booster Gold discovers that being a hero takes more than just a megawatt smile, and that the future doesn’t happen without first protecting the present.
You know what’s missing on TV these days? A movie where a Yeti kills a bunch of people and attractive people who you would never believe were actual scientists hunt the creature and try to destory it.
Well, wish granted because that’s just what Syfy has done with their upcoming TV movie Rage of the Yeti. Yes, you read that right. It’s a movie about a Yeti with anger management issues. Awesome, that’s the only way to describe it.
Don’t believe us and want proof that this movie really exists? Happy to oblige ’cause we’ve got previews.
In the first clip, a Yeti comes out of the snowy shadows and charges towards the team. The Yeti sets his sights on one of the characters and knocks him over. While he scrambles to get up, he tries to ward off the Yeti with a flare. Sadly, it has no effect and the Yeti drags him off into the blizzard.
In the second clip, the team calls for medical help after several members are injured and missing after a Yeti attack. While trying to escape, two team members are charged by a Yeti and they are only able to scare it away after they fire off multiple rounds.
Check out both clips after the break. Rage of the Yeti, which stars David Chokachi and Yancy Butler (so you know it’s good), premieres Saturday at 9/8C only on Syfy.
It was less than a week ago that Syfy announced its long running series Eureka would get a six episode season six order and that those six episodes would be the last for the series. Then, Syfy apparently had a change of heart and announced Eureka would not get six episodes for a final season and instead would end after this season.
Now, things have apparently changed yet again. Syfy has announced, and Deadline has confirmed, that Eureka will get one more episode after current episodes air to properly wrap up the series.
According to reports, Syfy executives called the cast to apologize for the conflicting decisions over the past week, which included a six-episode final-season order, followed by no-final-season announcement and then the additional episode pickup. Well, at least they apologized, which is nice.
Reports are that the six-episode order was overruled by the new post-merger management as the series was getting expensive after 5 seasons and has enough finished episodes. Most affected are some crew members who turned down job offers last week when Eureka was picked up for 6 more episodes only to find out later that wasn’t happening. I bet they didn’t get a call from Syfy executives.
At least the network still has other cool shows like Warehouse 13 and Alphas which, after a bit of a slow start, is getting better and better.
Do you love all the shows on Syfy like Warehouse 13, Alphas, Eureka and more but are very sad you missed Comic-Con in San Diego and all the great trailers for your favorite shows? We know how you feel. Well, we were at Comic-Con but we do know how it feels to miss stuff. Firefly anyone?
