‘High Moon’ shoots Bryan Fuller back into space

16 September 2014 4:46 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

High Moon

Written by Bryan Fuller and Jim Danger Gray

Directed by Adam Kane

Aired September 15, 2014 on Syfy

While Bryan Fuller’s style may be a bit too quirky, macabre, or esoteric for some audiences, there’s no denying that the man knows how to give good pilot. The first episode of Wonderfalls was an endearing, fast-talking affair that gradually injected fantasy into early 20s/retail ennui. The first episode of Pushing Daisies was nothing less than a storybook brought to life, a vibrant spin on the matters of life, death, and what happens when the order of the two reverses. And the first episode of Hannibal was a visceral, otherworldly affair that made it clear from the outset it wasn’t your parents’ Hannibal Lecter.

That track record leads to a lot of high expectations for High Moon, even though unlike those previous shows the pilot is (likely) all there’s going to be. »

High Moon review

16 September 2014 1:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ron doesn't see why Syfy's fun, good-looking sci-fi pilot, High Moon, didn't make it to series. There's plenty here to enjoy...

Once upon a time, you couldn't sneeze in the summer without hitting some sort of made-for-tv movie. Sometimes, they'd be specially made for the purpose of airing. Sometimes, they'd just be unused pilots that happened to be edited into a two-hour block to fill a little airtime. For every The Night Stalker, there was a Steel Magnolias, K-9 And Company, or a Riding With Death (which went on to fame via Mystery Science Theater 3000). In other words, the TV movie pilot doesn't always work out all that well. However, you have to give SyFy credit for trying to make something out of nothing with High Moon, the television pilot version of John Christopher's novel The Lotus Caves.

In the not-too-distant future, the moon has become the new »

Bryan Fuller makes science fiction fun again with 'High Moon'

15 September 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Tonight, Americans have the choice between watching Dancing with the StarsMonday Night Football, and … a SyFy movie with gay Russian spies on the moon. Curious? You’re not alone: SyFy executives thought the same thing of Bryan Fuller’s newest creation, High Moon. For four years, Fuller and the channel entered into an on-again, off-again relationship. At first it was a pilot, then a miniseries, then back to a pilot, then back to… you get the idea.

“ecause of how strange the development process was at the network, I don’t think anybody was surprised [that it wasn't made into a series],” Fuller said. “Right before we were ordered, »

It's High Time to Watch the Trailer for Syfy's High Moon

9 September 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

When last we talked about High Moon, an adaptation of John Christopher's novel The Lotus Caves by Bryan Fuller ("Hannibal"), it was being called a pilot; but now it seems to be just another in the network's long line of Original Movies.

High Moon, starring Jake Sandvig, Chris Diamantopoulos, Jonathan Tucker, and Charity Wakefield, tells of a group who arrive on the moon and realize they've got company... and they Don't come in peace!

Adam Kane ("Being Human") directed the script penned by co-executive producer Jim Danger Gray ("Pushing Daisies") from a story adaptation written by Fuller and Gray.

The film airs on Monday, September 15th, at 9/8c on Syfy. Check out the trailer and a still below.

Bryan Fuller's "High Moon" To Air On Syfy

8 September 2014 6:16 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A few years back, "Hannibal" and "Dead Like Me" show runner Bryan Fuller crafted a pilot for Syfy based on John Christopher‘s 1969 sci-fi novel "The Lotus Caves".

Fuller's adaptation never got picked up to series, but now Syfy is slated to show the 90-minute series premiere which has been repurposed as a TV movie that will air later this month. To tease the telemovie, the network has just posted the first five minutes of the pilot-turned-telemovie online at TV Line.

Jonathan Tucker, Jake Sandvig, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Charity Wakefield star in the series which is set on the Earth's moon which is now home to numerous mining colonies. Chaos erupts when a new life form is revealed.

Jim Danger Gray ("Hannibal," "Torchwood") wrote the script and Adam Kane ("Pushing Daisies") directed the work. Funnily enough this marks the second failed pilot of Fuller's to be turned into a telemovie event, »

Exorcism TV Series in the Works at NBC

3 September 2014 8:29 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Could a seemingly innocent 15-year-old girl be the prime suspect of savage murders taking place in town? The answer could be ‘yes’ if she’s possessed by a demon like Regan was in The Exorcist. In NBC’s upcoming exorcism drama, The Possession of Maggie Gill, two detectives will explore the primal and perilous effects of paranormal activity surrounding a teenager.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has committed to a script for Amblin Television’s The Possession of Maggie Gill. John Glenn (The Lazarus Project) will handle scripting duties and will also executive produce alongside Adam Kane and Amblin’s Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, and Harris Fishman. We have the show’s official synopsis (courtesy of THR!):

“Maggie centers on the Gills, a loving a middle-class family in Eugene, Ore., who find themselves in the midst of crisis when paranormal occurrences begin to affect the everyday fabric of their home. »

Falling Skies season 4 episode 10 review: Drawing Straws

27 August 2014 1:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Falling Skies' family melodrama is never its strongest suit, and this week's episode is chock-full of it...

This review contains spoilers.

4.10 Drawing Straws

Falling Skies works best when it's blasting aliens and having fun with its sci-fi, or when it dabbles in horror elements to try to be creepy. The Mason family drama is not the show's strongest suit, though it has worked at times in the past. This week, however, the Mason squabbling throws a spanner into the works and detracts from some very good special affects on the beamer ships. Lexi travels to the Dianetics commercial lava world, overhears an alien plot, and destroys some valuable alien hardware in her return to the good side, but we spend much more time listening to people bicker than we do watching Lexi turn good and kill some fish heads

Bauer Blog – 24: Live Another Day 2:00Pm – 3:00Pm (Contains Spoilers)

21 May 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

Writers: Joel Surnow, Robert Cochran.

Director: Adam Kane.

Cast: Kiefer Sutherland, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver, Tate Donavan, Jon Boyega, William Devane, Yvonne Strahovski, Michelle Fairley, Emily Bennington, Giles Matthey.

Synopsis: Taking place between 2pm and 3pm, Jack heads for the Embassy with the CIA closing in on him. Margot asserts her authority with unthinkable force; Heller makes an impassioned speech to Parliament; Kate takes matters into her own hands.

Jacks back! It’s hard to believe I know, but it has been a whole four years since we watched Jack, now a wanted man, bid Chloe farewell and disappear from our TV screens. You can’t keep a good man down though and everyone’s favourite rogue agent has this time set-up camp on British soil. Though not quite 24 this time around, with only twelve episodes, 24: Live Another Day promises to be crammed full of just as much action. »

24: Live Another Day, Ep. 1.04 “2:00 Pm – 3:00 Pm” pins down Jack

20 May 2014 8:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

24: Live Another Day, Season 1, Episode 4: “2:00 Pm – 3:00Pm”

Written by Patrick Harbinson

Directed by Adam Kane

Airs Mondays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

One of the reasons 24‘s original run came to an end is that it was no longer original. It was running out of ideas and ways to tells stories without introducing moles, double-agents, and inorganic obstacles for Jack Bauer. What 24: Live Another Day has managed to do, so far, is use familiar elements from the show and present them in a fresh way. While it doesn’t completely revitalize the franchise, it’s brought a solidly entertaining action-thriller back to the schedule.

We’ve seen many times that Jack is willing to do whatever it takes — including sacrificing himself — for the greater good. We’ve seen him take hostages before, notably in Season 4, when he held up a convenience store to stop a suspect from escaping. »

24: Live Another Day, Ep. 1.03 “1:00 Pm – 2:00 Pm” offers streamlined chaos

13 May 2014 1:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

24: Live Another Day, Season 1, Episode 3: “1:00 Pm – 2:00 Pm”

Written by Sang Kyu Kim & Patrick Somerville

Directed by Adam Kane

Airs Mondays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

After a frantic two-hour premiere in which we barely stopped to breathe, the season’s third hour is a much more taut and streamlined affair. There’s plenty of action, but the focus is on pushing the plot forward. Jack is hunting the young lady who we saw take off with the drone override at the end of last week, Kate uses her interrogation nous to get closer to Jack, and Chloe has a startling reveal that explains much of why she’s an outsider.

After finding the location of Derrick and his murderous girlfriend, Jack is chasing her on the London Underground. This leads to a neat moment for Emily Berrington as Simone Al-Harazi manages to weasel her way out »

Dlc Review: ‘Dead Rising 3: Fallen Angel’

13 March 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Another month, another installment in Dead Rising 3’s “Untold Stories of Los Perdidos.”  Last month’s “Operation Broken Eagle” was a fun-but-flawed addition to the game, focusing not on new series hero Nick Ramos, but on the stunningly generic special ops soldier Adam Kane, which stripped almost all of the personality from a lighthearted game and made it grim and gritty…and not really in a good way.  However, it still deserved a look simply for being more Dead Rising 3, flawed or not.

Unfortunately, the trend continues in the second “Untold Story,” the ominously titled “Fallen Angel.”  Going to the opposite side of the coin, the “illegal” Angel Quijano is the focal point, and this Dlc seems to fall into similar issues as its predecessors, but in a completely different way.

Dlc Review: ‘Operation Broken Eagle’ for ‘Dead Rising 3’

5 February 2014 10:15 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Much like its predecessors, Dead Rising 3 has a slew of Dlc planned to expand the already beefy amount of content that it holds.  Unlike the previous games, whose Dlc was primarily new costumes and weapons, the soon-to-be-quartet of new content packs, called “The Untold Stories of Los Perdidos,” offer up new stories and new characters, each with their own missions that run parallel to the main tale of Nick Ramos’ escape from the doomed city.

The first of these packs, “Operation Broken Eagle,” follows Spec Ops Commander Adam Kane (real creative naming, guys) as he tries to bring in the President under orders from General Hemlock in order to further the General’s agenda.  This immediately paints Kane in a less-than-positive light, as players who have finished DR3’s main campaign know just how treacherous Hemlock is and what the President’s capture means to the zombie crisis.  However, much like Kane himself, »

Dead Rising 3: Operation Broken Eagle Dlc Review

22 January 2014 7:56 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With its seemingly endless supply of shambling brain-eaters and counteracting weaponry, Dead Rising 3 is arguably the best next-generation video game thus far. As such, the recent release of brand new, story-based Dlc for the game is big news within the industry and its consumer base. That’s for good reason, though, given just how well-made and insanely enjoyable Capcom Vancouver’s sandbox zombie epic ended up being.

Following a month-long delay, yesterday brought with it the debut of Operation Broken Eagle, the first of four planned episodic expansions for the campy, horror-based title. Ushering in a stand-alone menu selection called the Untold Stories of Los Perdidos, said add-on introduced veteran zombie killers to a new protagonist in the form of Spec Ops Commander Adam Kane.

Written in as an anti-hero of sorts, Commander Kane is part of a military sect that has been given controversial orders involving the President of the United States. »

Sleepy Hollow Episodes 112 and 113

“The Indispensable Man” 

Teleplay by Damian Kindler & Heather V. Regnier

Story By: Sam Chalsen

Directed By: Adam Kane

Bad Blood

Written By: Alex Kurtzman & Mark Goffman

Directed By: Ken Olin

Original Airdate: 20 January 2014

In This Episode…

We have two episodes here crammed together to make “event viewing.” The first episode wasn’t bad, it was just kind of pointless, so let’s get through it quickly.

Andy surprises Abbie in her home. Washington’s bible leads to a map that Moloch wants. Andy suggests she turn over the bible and Moloch will grant her a seat in “Moloch’s new world order.” Naturally Abbie laughs at this. Meeting up with Ichabod at the archives, he has cracked Washington’s code. Remembering a tale his commanding officer told him, Ichabod looks up the story of Lazarus and finds that Washington’s bible has ten extra verses. Revealing the hidden ink, »

Sleepy Hollow 1.12 “The Indispensable Man” and 1.13 “Bad Blood” an insane, relationship-fueled finale

Sleepy Hollow, Season 1, Episode 12, “The Indispensable Man”

Sleepy Hollow, Season 1, Episode 13, “Bad Blood

Written by Alex Kurtzman and Mark Goffman

Directed by Ken Olin

Airs Mondays at 9pm (Est) on Fox

The two-hour Sleepy Hollow season finale is very difficult to write about due to the sheer amount of plot twists in the episode’s last fifteen minutes alone. Alex Kurtzman and Mark Goffman have been seeding little clues throughout the season, and they all pay off in a huge way in “The Indispensable Man” and “Bad Blood”. Even though its off-beat takes on American history and Christianity keep Sleepy Hollow entertaining, its biggest strength as a show has been its focus on personal relationships in the face of a larger struggle between good and evil. Throughout both episodes, Sleepy Hollow‘s writers explore the connection »

Dead Rising 3 Receives Large Patch Prior To First Downloadable Expansion

20 January 2014 2:37 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With just one day to go before Dead Rising 3 receives its first major downloadable content add-on in Operation Broken Eagle, Capcom Vancouver has released a large update for the open-world zombie epic. Providing numerous fixes, the file stands as an important download for those who wish to either continue the mayhem in their own personal save files, or enlist for combat within Broken Eagle‘s new mission parameters.

The new update brings with it stability fixes and important pre-release files for the game’s latter expansion packs, which have yet to receive release dates. However, its most notable change comes in the form of an impulse trigger response mechanic, which gives trigger-happy players a notification as to when their guns are about to become useless, due to a lack of lead or what have you.
