Fangasm, Season 1, Episode 1: “Beam Me Up, Stan”

Airs Tuesdays at 10 Pm E.S.T. on SyFy

My first reaction to Fangasm was how much I related to the people on the show and how respectfully they were treated.

The cast range from Andrew Duvall, a hilarious Star Trek fan who ironically works for Enterprise Rent A Car to Dani Snow, a cosplayer who is interested in Lord of the Rings, comics, and special effects makeup. The other cast members are Kristin Hackett, a huge comics fan who wants to start her own fashion line; Mike Reed, an outgoing DC Comics fan who also cosplays; Molly McIsaac, an outspoken and hilarious comics fan and cosplayer; Paul Perkins, who loves Star Trek »

Heroes of Cosplay just premiered this week, but we already have word about the series that will be taking its slot when its 6-episode run concludes. It’s another unscripted show, another kind-of competition though we’re not positive about that, and another look at another side of the popular culture convention life. It’s called Fangasm.
