Eff This Week #2: (censored) Van Patten

We party’d down this week, so much so that jackass Chuck forgot to start the recording and lost the first 10 minutes of the ‘cast. So if you were listening live, you got the “special edition” version where Chuck shot first. This week’s Eff This Week crew: Chuck, Audra, Juan, and Abigail (whom you might […]

Haven’s Got Troubles — But What the Hell Are They?

Last year I wrote about this amazing SyFy show that debuted in July 2010 set in a quaint Northeastern coastal town called Haven. Based loosely on Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid, this show continues to amaze and captivate me. It’s a well put together story with great acting and, as Chuck often puts it, “a […]

Koenig Touts Possible New B5, Straczynski Denies

Fans at last week’s Las Vegas Star Trek convention got a bit of a shocker from Walter Koenig. His quote (via TrekMovie.com): “[J. Michael Staczynski] told me that he is in negotiations to re-acquire the rights to Babylon 5 and it looks pretty good. Now what that portends I am not entirely sure. It could […]

Blade Runner Prequel/Sequel Rumors Get Real

Earlier this year Warner Bros’ Alcon entertainment made entertainment news headlines by acquiring the “film, television and ancillary” rights to Blade Runner sequels, firing up the rumor mill with possibilities of new Blade Runner content — though not a remake/re-boot as “Alcon’s franchise rights would be all-inclusive, but exclude rights to remake the original.” Fans […]

Why Neil dGrasse Tyson Will Voice The New Cosmos

The Operator tipped me to the above video this week — for obvious reasons. Here’s my take: Forget which side of the aisle your politics lean toward. Forget who you voted for in 2008, and forget who you’re going to vote for in 2012. I don’t care, and I don’t really want to hear about […]

Behind The Mic: Dr. Henry Jenkins

In this week’s Galactic Watercooler podcast we aired an interview that Audra and I did with Dr. Henry Jenkins. He’s an incredibly interesting guy, both to academics and fans. In fact, he calls himself an “AcaFan”–a hybrid of the two. From the “about” page of his website, henryjenkins.org: Textual Poachers and much of my subsequent […]

Cowboys, Aliens, and SDCC Smack

The Operator sent over an interesting article this morning from Slashfilm pointing out that we’ll get a Cowboys and Aliens screening at San Diego Comic Con this year (woot!) and noting that some studios are planning to “skip” the ‘con of ‘cons this year. Specifically, “Warner Bros., Disney, and DreamWorks aren’t bringing films to the […]

Voltron For GWCers

Voltron is a recipe for a geek-gasm. Start with a mysterious oppressed planet, uncover five ancient transforming robot lions, insert young, highly-trained warrior pilots, add a galactic monstrous evil villain empire bent on universal domination, sprinkle in glamorous royalty, knead in hilarious dialogue, mix in magical spirits, cook it under the heat of a life-or-death […]
