This just in from my source, Shankar, promoting NBC shows –
Two items for you today: First, this is freshly uploaded to the Web, not available in any other NBC or Universal Home Entertainment promos. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a clip from the visual effects special features, in which visual effects supervisor Mark Kolpack talks about a common bond he and Heroes star Masa Oki shareÃ¢â‚¬â€Oki also worked in special effects before he began his acting career. Check out this new Heroes clip from the Season 1 DVD boxed set on YouTube:
I caught the premier of the new Flash Gordon on the SciFi Channel Friday night. And wasted a good hour of my life. They cancelled the Dresden Files and put their hope in this show? I think something is seriously wrong with these people. They wouldn’t know a good show if it slapped them in the face.
Not only was Flash Gordon as corny as a B movie, but the special effects look like they came out of someone’s basement. The dialog and writing was laughable, and not in a good way. Basically, Doctor Who (for the bizarreness) threw up on Flash Gordon. Every cheesy science fiction element is here.
Way to give science fiction a bad name, SciFi Channel!
This December, the SciFi Channel will be airing the Tin Man miniseries, a darker take on L. Frank Baum’s classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. To promote the upcoming show, SciFi is releasing a digital comicbook with backstory on the characters.
If you’ve been interested in checking out Kyle XY but don’t want to jump into the 2nd season, you can catch up now for free on the ABC Family website! Just go to ABCFamily.com/watch and click on one of the several shows or “Get Started.”
And be sure to tune in to ABC Family this weekend for Fallen. Episode 1 airs on Friday night, 1 & 2 air on Saturday, and all episodes air on Sunday.
