Interview: Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra, Adam Baldwin, Travis Van Winkle and Hank Steinberg discuss The Last Ship

9 August 2014 1:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

david j. moore chats with The Last Ship stars Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra, Adam Baldwin, Travis Van Winkle and executive prdoucer Hank Steinberg at the San Diego Comic-Con…

The new hit show The Last Ship follows a line of other television shows of late that have apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic themes. A deadly virus sweeps the world by storm and the only cure for humanity lies in Dr. Rachel Scott’s (played by Rhona Mitra from Doomsday, 2008) hands. She’s aboard the last functioning U.S. Naval Destroyer, whose Captain (played by Eric Dane from Grey’s Anatomy) must protect her and the knowledge she has at all costs as outlying dangers encroach and intend to do humanity even more harm. These interviews with actors Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra, Adam Baldwin, Travis Van Winkle, and executive producer Hank Steinberg shed some light on the show’s topical apocalyptic themes, some of »

Emily S. Whitten’s Grand San Diego Adventure, Part Two!

7 August 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

After reading my Twitter feed one night during Sdcc weekend, my friend (and cool voiceover dude) Bob Joles joked that I was just at Sdcc for the parties. And while that’s not entirely true, I do love a good party and folks at Sdcc host some killer shindigs. I’m eternally sad that I can’t somehow clone myself and be at all of them at once, but I did manage to make it to a good handful this year, so here’s my Sdcc Party Round-Up!

Gabe Eltaeb’s Comics Kickoff Fundraiser with Jinx Clothing

Wednesday night I didn’t actually expect to be at any parties, but I did meet some friends for a late dinner over at Basic Bar & Pizza, and it turned out that Jinx Clothing was co-sponsoring a comics party there with artist Gabe Eltaeb. It was pretty cool! For atmosphere they had the »

New Joss Whedon Biography Gives Details on the Creation of Firefly

1 August 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Amy Pascale’s biography of Joss Whedon hits shelves today, and with it comes new insight into our Geek Overlord. We’ve already seen Tom Hiddleston’s love letter to Whedon, which came from the book, now io9 has an except of Chapter 17, about the creation of Firefly. It goes in depth about his inspiration for the show, casting, writing Chinese slang, and why he named the show after the ship. He even throws shade at Doctor Who. You should probably read the whole thing (Especially because I’m not going spoil the reason he named the show Firefly. Its reveal is too good in the context of the excerpt.), but here are a few highlights.

Whedon wanted the series to be about “how politics affect people personally. And the personal politics are the only politics that really interest me. I'm not going to make this big, didactic polemic—I'm just going to say, »

Comic-Con 2014 Cosplay Music Video

31 July 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

With only a handful of exceptions, many of the panels at San Diego Comic-Con this year were a little underwhelming. On the bright side, the outdoor festivities and cosplay were on point as usual. The good folks at Sneaky Zebra were there to capture all the costumed craziness and gender-bending greatness. Look for cameos from panel moderator extraordinaire Chris Hardwick, David Yost and Walter Jones (the original Blue and Black Power Rangers), director Freddie Wong, actor Sam Witwer, and more.

In celebration of recently hitting 100 videos and over 100,000 subscribers on YouTube, Sneaky Zebra is also giving away a couple Sdcc exclusive Firefly action figures. To enter to win, tweet @The_SneakyZebra ideas for who you like to see Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin cosplay.

‘The Last Ship’: The Hard Choices

21 July 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

[This is a review of The Last Ship season 1, episode 5. There will be Spoilers.]

-

Part of the enduring appeal of post-apocalyptic fiction is that once unfathomable choices are often made by characters due to inescapable circumstance; tough choices that are not reflexively celebrated or even understood. More than anything, though, these narrative choices represent a risk – something that The Last Ship has, for the most part, steered clear of.

In last night’s episode, ‘El Toro’, we saw the clearest opportunity for the show to make an unpopular yet bold creative choice when Chandler (Eric Dane), Mike Slattery (Adam Baldwin) and their crew were confronted by a low level warlord (El Toro, as played by José Zúñiga) ...

Top 15 Joss Whedon characters: The best of the Buffy, Angel, Firefly bunch

21 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Joss Whedon, lauded king of fandom, purveyor of wisdom and de facto overseer of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, celebrates his 50th birthday on Monday (June 23).

Whedon's always had a knack for taking pre-established characters – whether it's The Avengers or a gang of talking toys or the cast of Speed – and making them just that bit more quippy and emotionally rich and awesome. But it's his original small-screen characters that remain his most beloved.

Below, Digital Spy counts down our top fifteen Whedonverse characters. You can vote for your favourite in the poll below, then take to the comments to rank about all the rankings we got wrong and all the favourites we've inevitably left out.

15. Dr Horrible

Neil Patrick Harris's "aspiring supervillain" is never at any point successfully villainous. He's a more immediately loveable extension of Buffy's Nerd Troika – the perpetually overlooked semi-recluse who can barely string a sentence together around his crush, »

TV Review: ‘The Last Ship’

19 June 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wedding military hardware and a martial mind-set to paranoia about global pandemics, “The Last Ship” is an odd duck — a post-apocalyptic tale with a glimmer of hope, tonally similar to (if not as good as) the late, lamented “Jericho.” It’s left to a hardy naval crew and one inordinately beautiful scientist try to save humanity, without knowing exactly what’s left of it to save. Eric Dane is firmly in square-jawed John Wayne territory as the ship’s captain, on a TNT summer drama with plenty of possibilities but also numerous pitfalls as it seeks to navigate rather treacherous narrative currents.

The USS Nathan James has been off in the Arctic and out of radio contact while a devastating “virus of unknown origin” has decimated humanity. But it turns out the ship was on a secret mission, hosting a paleomicrobiologist (no, really, look it up), Dr. Rachel Scott (Rhona Mitra »

The Last Ship Review – TNT Pushes Drama Until Everything Explodes

The Last Ship Review

Over the last few years, we’ve learned that there are two distinct options when you’re looking at a big budget, television effort. There’s the option to focus a lot of attention on the script’s ability to deliver solid characters and convincing, intelligent plot lines, and then there’s the option to go the road of something like Terra Nova, which started off great, but quickly seemed determined to become a sort of sci-fi Grey’s Anatomy. You might not have too much trouble figuring out which direction Michael Bay is interested in, and how The Last Ship plays.

The easiest demonstration of the choice comes from the support positions we have to assume are, or are not, on the show’s payroll. When our show is about a virus that wipes out a huge portion of the world’s population and the »

The Insider: Rachel Nichols talks about The Inside and Mike Nichols

9 May 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

When told that she had a spooky resemblance to Clarice Starling which only added to The Silence of the Lambs (1991) vibe to a TV series where Rachel Nichols [Conan the Barbarian] portrayed a FBI profiler hunting down serial killers, the actress laughs, “That’s so funny you said that!  It happened a lot when I was younger.  The one person people ever said that I looked like was Jodie Foster.  When Tim Minear [Firefly] came on to retool the original pilot of The Inside [Fox, 2005] that was his inspiration.  He said, ‘Jodie Foster and The Silence of the Lambs.’  She has always been one of my absolute favourites.  I adore that comment because that was exactly what we were going for.  I loved the show and working on it.  It got the short end of the stick because with actors Peter Coyote [Sphere] and Adam Baldwin [Full Metal Jacket], and Tim Minear writing the show it could have been so much more. »
