With the plethora of programming on the major networks, cable and pretty much everywhere else these days, many quality TV shows can get overlooked or not given as much attention as they should. One of these shows is Syfy’s Haven.
It’s a well done mystery/thriller series loosely based on the Stephen King novel The Colorado Kid. It deals with strange and supernatural forces that occur in the town of Haven, Maine and how the townspeople deal with them.
If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s definitely worth a look. To help you, we’ve got several previews and such for Friday’s new episode. Check them all out after the break.
If you know anything about The Flickcast team, you know we’re huge fans of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica. It was an excellent show and we are grateful that Syfy decided to run it for as long as they did.
We are also fans of BSG creator and Exec. Producer Ron Moore, so when he’s about to launch a new show, we take notice. That new show is called Helix and from the what we can see in this brand new trailer, it looks like it could become one of our new favorites.
Here’s more about the show, directly from Syfy:
Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control, led by Dr. Alan Farragut (Billy Campbell), who travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind’s salvation…or total annihilation.
Check out the brand new trailer after the break. Helix premieres Friday, January 10 at 10/9c, on Syfy.
Over the years, Syfy has evolved into a great network for original programming. Two examples of this are the series Warehouse 13 and Defiance.
Both have brand new episodes next Monday and, as we often do, we’ve got previews and interviews for said episodes to share with you today. First up is Defiance where a mysterious plague strikes, carried by Irathients, but affecting only humans.
Next, on the new Warehouse 13, Pete and Myka go undercover in the suburbs, while Claudia and Artie must help a young savant. Looks like both these episodes are a must-see for fans. We’ll be watching for sure.
All the fun starts at 9/8C on Syfy with Defiance. Click through to check out all the clips and interviews for both shows.
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.
