    Supernatural Saturdays

    Although I am totally going to geek out on Doctor Who and talk about what happened on this last episode before the summer break, that’s not actually all I am going to talk about here. First we have to get this out of the way: How come British SF tv is so much more awesome than American SF tv? Personally, I think the problem can be traced to the same idiocy that caused the SciFi channel to change their name to Syfy. If you are trying to appeal to science fiction fans, why would you want to disguise the fact that you are showing science fiction on your channel? Especially since that just enrages SF fans. Of course, it wasn’t like they were really showing much SF by that point anyway, but still. This attempt to straddle the line–keeping the sound of the name while trying to move away from

    Her Universe is taking over geekdom one area at a time. SyFy just announced that they will be working with Her Universe to create SyFy branded collection of apparel and accessories for women.

    Join GamingAngels for the premier of WCG Ultimate Gamer Season 2

    WCG Ultimate Gamer is back for a second season and it starts this Thursday at 11/10c on SyFy. This season 12 competitors meet up to see if they have what it takes to be the Ultimate Gamer. This season should be really interesting. Based on the lineup shown at wcgultimategamer.com, this season is all about hardcore. Starting with Justin Wong, well known Street Fighter 4 champion. We’ll have to see if he can compete on other games just as well. The women represent with Vanessa who played in the now defunct, Championship Gaming Series. Vanessa was much feared by all the women in that league. She’s joined by Kat and Princess Aura, both who are leaders in the games they play. Hopefully the drama will be left at home and all we’ll see is amazing game play. Back again this year is our live blog! That’s right, in the pop

    80′s Teen Pop idols duke it out

    There have been some epic battles in the past. Battles where you are forced to take a side. But kids of the 80′s might have never taken a side in the Debbie Gibson versus Tiffany pop queen battle. Or at least until the rumors about Tiffany dating a New Kid came about. Syfy has sent over a video showing what the battle of the 80′s pop divas would be like. This is a clip from the upcoming film “Mega Python vs Gatoroid”. The girls fight against each other and there is some fan service for guys. Which is weird since it was young female teens that idolized these two. But I have to admit that the end is funny. Mega Python vs Gatoroid comes to SyFy in 2011. Enjoy the clip! Follow

    Syfy and THQ partner up for “Red Faction: Origins”

    Syfy and THQ have teamed up for the debut of Red Faction: Origins, a movie set between the two Red Faction games – Guerilla (which has been released already) and Armageddon, which is scheduled for release in March 2011, just like the movie. With a screenplay by Andrew Kreisberg of Warehouse 13, Fringe, Vampire Diaries and Boston Legal fame (one of these things is not like the other…) based on a story from Paul DeMeo (The Rocketeer, Flash, Viper, The Sentinel), Syfy seems confident that the movie will extend the world of Red Faction satisfactorily for fans. This is all part of THQ’s initiative to introduce the Red Faction franchise to new audiences and increase public awareness of Red Faction Armageddon. (So, basically, they probably weren’t satisfied with sales of Red Faction: Guerilla. But you didn’t hear that from me.) Here’s a quick summary of the movie: Twenty-five years have

    Felicia Day will be staring in SyFy Red

    Felicia Day noted on Twitter today the following: I can finally say what I’m doing in Canada! RT: @georgeruiz: I see the word’s out about @feliciaday and @syfy: http://bit.ly/aFzZ2M That’s right, the internet darling is going to be staring as Little Red Riding Hood in SyFy’s Original Movie Red. The movie is slated to premier in 2011. Red is the first of a series of new films that will be taking on classic fairy tales. Maybe this is spurned by Alice. The new films will be launched with Beauty and the Beasts: A Dark Tale on February 27. Future tales include Aladdin, Sinbad the Sailor and Hansel & Gretel. It probably won’t stop there if they get a good amount of viewers. In Red, Red brings her fiance home where he learns that her family hunts werewolves. But when he’s bitten by a werewolf the family insists that he has
