The Best TV Shows Based on Movies, Ranked

1 August 2017 9:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In the age of branding and franchises, every existing story has added value. But not every film is fit for TV.

The challenge of adapting movies to a new medium is a tricky one with no clear-cut way to do it. Many new series credit “Fargo” as their benchmark, citing its tone and setting as inspiration for creating a new world around the best parts of what came before. That’s all well and good, but there are as many failed attempts to replicate Noah Hawley’s strategy as successes.

Similarly, some carbon copies — using the same characters and plot points as the preceding movie — are just as good, if not better than their cinematic predecessors. Because any way can work, many various attempts have been made. There’s no right way to do it, but there are a lot of wrong ways; as evidenced by the growing pile of canceled shows based on movies. »

The service in question is called Stargate Command. MGM, the producer of the 1994 Stargate film and the long-running SyFy TV series Stargate Sg-1, announced the new venture at Comic-Con.

‘Stargate’ Being Revived With New Digital Series ‘Stargate Origins’

20 July 2017 6:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A new “Stargate” series is being cooked up — one that will anchor a new streaming service devoted to the sci-fi franchise.

The 10-episode series “Stargate Origins” will tell the story of Catherine Langford, a character who occasionally appeared in previous “Stargate” TV shows. The show will be available via MGM’s new streaming service, titled Stargate Command, which will be available this fall.

Mark Ilvedson and Justin Michael Terry will write “Stargate Origins,” which will revolve around Langford, daughter of archaeologist Paul Langford, who discovered the ancient, round Stargate. Crews of explorers later used that Stargate to explore dozens of worlds in many galaxies. These teams faced down numerous foes, including the wily and tenacious Goa’uld and the destructive Replicators. In the show, Catherine will go on an adventure in order to save the Earth from terrifying darkness. The online series will be directed by Mercedes Bryce Morgan

Syfy’s Superman prequel series “Krypton” will be shot in Northern Ireland at the recently minted Belfast Harbour Studios, a coup for the local industry as the end of  “Game of Thrones” comes into sight.

The new £20 million ($25.8 million) Belfast studio was announced at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and will be the base for “Krypton,” which takes up the Superman story two generations before the Man of Steel’s home planet is destroyed.

It will follow the superhero’s grandfather, played by Cameron Cuffe (“The Halcyon”), as he fights to redeem the family’s honor and save Krypton. “Game of Thrones” actor Ian McElhinney will also appear. Phantom Four and Warner Horizon are producing. Pre-production starts this month, and shooting gets underway late summer.

Quantum Leap: 10 greatest guest performances

5 March 2017 5:36 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Juliette Harrisson Mar 24, 2017

Remember this lot popping up in Quantum Leap? They're our pick of the best guest performances in the time travel show...

Once again, we’re celebrating great guest performances in one of our favourite shows. We’re defining a guest appearance as an actor who plays a particular character no more than twice over the run of the show. There’s a bit more competition for the list for this show than most – since Quantum Leap only had two regular cast members and nearly every other actor on the show appeared only once!

Stargate Sg-1: 10 great guest performances

26 January 2017 12:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Juliette Harrisson Jan 31, 2017

We salute 10 memorable guest roles on Stargate Sg-1, featuring Seth, The Keeper and more...

As with our previous features, this is a list designed to celebrate the very best performances by guest actors in Stargate Sg-1. However, we did come across a couple of challenges in compiling the list for this particular series. We’ve defined ‘guest performance’ as an actor playing a character who is not a regular or recurring character – so the actor must have played the character no more than twice in this particular series (though they may have appeared more often in other branches of the franchise). Stargate Sg-1 liked to re-use its best guest characters as often as possible, frequently bringing back characters like Claudia Black’s Vala Mal Doran after what was initially a one-off appearance, which is great as the audience get to enjoy them again, but seriously reduces the number of eligible performances. »

Supergirl Round Table: Start the Car

Kara and Mon-El were transported to Slaver's Moon on Supergirl Season 2 Episode 9 and had to fare without their powers. 

Lucky for them, they had some help!

Below, TV Fanatics Jim Garner, Christine Orlando, Steven Ford, and Kathleen Wiedel discuss Winn's first time in the field, Mon-El's big secret, and Alex's newfound happiness. 

Join us!

What did you think of Winn in the field?

Jim: I laughed pretty hard as he cheered about not being a "red shirt". He actually did pretty well. I think he might have a future in the field kind of like Daniel did on Stargate: Sg-1.

Christine: I think it was good for Winn to get hit in the face with reality, literally. He doesn’t have superpowers. He doesn’t wear a special suit. He can be hurt or killed. There are risks in being a part of this fight, but now that he knows that, »
