“Warehouse 13″‘s Final Episodes, Don’t Expect Benedict Cumberbatch on “Doctor Who” and “Sharknado 2″ Seeks Crowdfunding

One common trait to new Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and his future Late Night competitor Stephen Colbert‘s history as late night hosts — they both have made several can’t-miss musical moments, like Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe” performed with toy instruments, Stephen’s Daft Punk-free Daft Punk performance or that time Taylor Hicks performed “Friday” with both Stephen and Jimmy.

Meanwhile, Splitsider looks at four directions Comedy Central will likely pick for a Colbert Report replacement. My dream sees Comedy Central managing to lure the hilarious No, You Shut Up! away from Fusion. (Let me remind you, this is a show where Paul F. Tompkins and Muppets — Muppets! — parody Crossfire. If the clips available are a good representation, it would fill that Colbert Report-sized hole nicely.)

They know how to be fun, fun, fun fun.

A Look Back at 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' Season One

10 April 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

The Dark Horse Comic, Buffy Season 10 was released earlier in March, and that's as good of a reason as any to look back at the start of the heroine's journey. (Also note that James Marsters and Nicholas Brendon are also a part of the Buffy Season 10 team, as writers. Ohmygodsoamazingwhat!)

During its run on television, and after, Buffy the Vampire Slayer inspired the creation of philosophical books, college courses, Joss Whedon's equally profound and fun spin-off series Angel, and countless Buffy-like fictional characters. Buffy herself became an icon of epic proportions. The show also changed the way people viewed television – not just in the experience of watching it, but how it was considered as a medium for telling powerful stories. 

Season One is where it all began (well, actually ... it all began with the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie, but I digress) and it's interesting to see how »

You, Me & Them’s first series is endearing, but rarely all that funny

24 March 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

You, Me & Them, Series 1

Written and created by Steve Turner

Available streaming on Acorn.TV

A sitcom has two primary jobs in terms of becoming a success: to build a world viewers will want to continue spending time in, and to make them laugh. The former is perhaps the more daunting task, but both are nebulous, hard to measure, and difficult to figure out in advance. British television is often vaunted as superior to its American counterpart, but if American TV has one advantage, it is that the increased episode orders on network television give American sitcoms time to find themselves in their first season. You, Me & Them, the new sitcom from writer/creator Steve Turner, does a decent job at building out a world and cast of characters worth spending time with, but in its six-episode first season, it all too often forgets to be funny.

Complete Buffy reviews: Helpless

24 March 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

With its ongoing emotional sagas and character studies, it's sometimes easy to forget that Buffy The Vampire Slayer has its roots in horror. Week after week, Buffy battles toothy vampires, slimy demons and other horrors from the Hellmouth – but don't forget that the show equates these monstrosities with the trials of growing up.

The latest instalment is no exception. Helpless is more of an overt horror story, using the tried and tested 'Stuck in a haunted house' trope as the backdrop for a scary tussle between Buffy and a bloke who resembles a three-way cross between a vampire, Steve Tyler from Aerosmith and the bass player guy from Blondie.

Which means another gold star from me, I'm afraid. Having sat through the last batch of Buffy The Vampire Slayer episodes, I've noted how faults seem to be few and far between. Hell's teeth, I've gone soft. Possibly it's because I'm »

Complete Buffy reviews: Amends

11 March 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

It's a bit weird, typing this review up at the tail end of February. I feel like I should be wearing some brightly coloured party hat while finding at least three Christmas songs that I can actually stand (for the record, Ring Out Solstice Bells by Jethro Tull, Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses and for some bizarre reason, Macca's festive cheese-fest Wonderful Christmastime are the only festive musical choices that don't make me want to take an axe to the pub stereo in December). Because Santa Joss is in town, delivering many a festive gift to all Buffy The Vampire Slayer fans with the episode, Amends.

Christmas episodes are always tricky things. There's the danger that they pile on the schmaltz and overdo the usual festive clichés. So, how does Amends stand up in this regard? To be honest, it's not a Buffy episode that I'd have readily picked as »

Complete Buffy reviews: The Wish

3 March 2014 3:48 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

[This episode review contains foreshadowing for future episodes, and the following review comments on this, though sometimes indirectly. Depending on your tolerance for spoilers, you may or may not wish to continue reading if you haven't finished watching the show.]

A big pot of gold delivered to your door. World peace. No more EastEnders on TV. Wishing may well be the most common pastime on Planet Earth, just inching ahead of backgammon and darts.

But as the old saying goes: “Be careful of what you wish for”. Cordelia's taking this advice on board a bit too late after new kid in town Anya (in reality, a scary, veiny demon) grants her wish of Buffy never coming to Sunnydale. This can only mean one thing: Alternate Dimension Time.

The Alternate Dimension is a common trope in fiction, in films such as It's A Wonderful Life. It's especially popular in science fiction. Doctor Who came up with Inferno, in which Jon Pertwee's Doctor found himself on a parallel Earth, just hours away from doomsday. Worse still, he had to battle with vicious, unkind counterparts of his friends, including Liz and the »

Complete Buffy reviews: Revelations

21 February 2014 7:32 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Revelations fades up with what sounds like the lead character from Family Guy sitting on some bagpipes. In fact, Dingoes Ate My Baby are concluding their latest set with what seems to be some sort of agonised ode to pain. Lead singer Devon is bypassing the normal laws of clear singing by turning the simple phrase “If I could walk out” into something that can only be translated as “If I could wuuuuunnnggghhh aaaggghhhlluunggghhhh.” It's amazing that Dingoes manage to get regular bookings, given that their lead singer keeps impersonating a constipated horse. Possibly, the Bronze regulars like their singers on the avant-garde side.

This groaning pain shout nicely sets the stage for Revelations, which contains more frenzied barking than a room containing The Littlest Hobo, Scooby-Doo and Shep from Blue Peter. Revelations is all about – well, revelations, if you hadn't guessed. Primarily, the big talking point is that the »

Briefs: Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” “Loser Keeps Bieber,” and HBO’s … “Homos?”

Birthday shoutouts go to Brian Litrell (above), who is 39, Gloria Vanderbilt is 90, Rihanna is 26, Anthony Head is 60, Cindy Crawford is 48, and Sandy Duncan is 68.

We were thrilled when Nick Zano was cast as the male lead on NBC’s One Big Happy, and there’s more cause for celebration as his Happy Endings co-star Elisha Cuthbert has snagged the female lead. The show “centers on two platonic friends since childhood — a lesbian, Lizzy (Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Zano) — who have been living together and trying to have a baby via artificial insemination for some time. They finally get pregnant — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life.”

Thn’s Eight People You Didn’t Know Were In Woody Allen Films

12 February 2014 4:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

**Nothing about the personal life of Woody Allen will be discussed herein. This is a feature about his work and only that.**

Blue Jasmine has not only put Woody Allen back on the map, it’s given Cate Blanchett a career defining role. But you know that because you’ve seen it… Oh you haven’t seen it? Then you may not know it also stars Louis Ck, one of the world’s greatest stand-up comedians. In fact, over the last decade, the diminutive director has released a film a year, from the terrific (Midnight In Paris) to the downright forgettable (Cassandra’S Dream… No, me either). In that time he’s worked with some people you might not expect. For instance…

Complete Buffy reviews: Beauty and the Beasts

10 February 2014 2:54 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

“All men are beasts”. Yikes. What happened on the day that Marti Noxon wrote Beauty And The Beasts? Did the milkman deliver a bottle of curdled milk? Did the postman deliver a parcel 30 days late? Did the paper boy turn out to be a shaggy werewolf all along?

It's a bold, and some might say, glib generalisation to open a story with. Personally speaking, as a man, I'd like to categorically state that I'm not a beast. Not literally or metaphorically or any other word ending in ally. Faith's claim comes seconds after talking about down low tickles, which kind of muddies the moral waters a tad. If Phases looked at the behaviour of men in a balanced fashion, then Beauty And The Beasts certainly gets off to a bumpy start.

The murder mystery provides the backdrop to some serious issues. Some sort of animal is running amok in Sunnydale and reducing innocents to purée. »

Syfy Releases Dominion First Look and Closes In on Premiere Date

16 January 2014 1:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Although we often see announcements from networks about when a show will hit the airwaves, when the date given is a season, like “summer,” we’ve learned to treat that as speculation. This is especially true when there is no video forthcoming.

This means we’re particularly happy to see that Syfy has released our first look at upcoming series Dominion, and given it a “June” date. It could be a really great original series, like Helix, or less so, like, well, one or two others that might have been somewhat disappointing.

Here’s the first, brief TV spot, followed by a reminder of the synopsis:
