On this week’s The 100, Clarke is haunted by visions of Finn, the Grounders accuse Raven of attempting to assassinate their leader, Abby tries to soothe Clarke’s grief, and Monty gets caught by the Mountain Men.
“Remember Me” may be about the Sky People’s shaky peace treaty with the Grounders in plot, but in spirit, it’s wholeheartedly an episode about Clarke struggling with the grief of killing Finn, as well as the harsh decisions the leaders–particularly women–on this show have to make on a regular basis. As Abby notes, and as Clarke seems to realize, all of these leaders’ lives mirror one another; they have the same goals, they have to make the same decisions, and they have the same pressure put »

Arriving fashionably late to the party is the speciality of these female TV characters. They’re not the Cousin Olivers or the Scrappy Doos of the television world, but the regulars and recurring roles who enter a show once it’s established and help it on its way to greatness. Their respective shows may not have known they needed them right at the start, but they soon proved themselves indispensable and much-loved parts of their TV universes.
From Paige Matthews to Winifred Burkle, Ro Laren and more then, let’s celebrate the women whose appearance in our favourite shows were better late than never...

Last week marked the 10th anniversary of the first regular-season episode of Battlestar Galactica, a show I desperately adore and a high-water mark for sci-fi/fantasy television that hasn't been remotely matched in the last decade. Readers responded with some happy memories about the show and some thoughtful remarks about the current state of network television. And then one responder sent in an email that had nothing to do with Battlestar Galactica, but which is currently my favorite Mailbag email ever. Put it this way: I've probably written at least a hundred thousand words about The Walking Dead, and this »

Every time a new cast member signs up to Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D, fans speculate on whether they'll turn out to be a character we know from the Marvel Comics universe or not. You can't really blame them; after all Mike Peterson became Deathlok, "the Doctor" became Mister Hyde, and Skye turned out to be his daughter, Quake -- and that may just be the tip of the iceberg. We recently found out that fan-favourite actor Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica, Blade Runner, Dexter) is the latest addition to the cast, playing someone named Robert Gonzalez. Will he turn out to be an established Marvel character? Olmos didn't comment on that during his interview with Cbr but he definitely suggested there's a lot more to this mysterious fellow than we're currently aware. Apparently his casting came "out of the blue", but already being a big Marvel »
Games Workshop's tabletop wargame Battlefleet Gothic is to become an Rts. Here are the first screenshots...
In Games Workshop's tabletop game Battlefleet Gothic, gigantic, ludicrously ornate warships blasted at one another in the depths of space. It was like Battlestar Galactica crossed with Coventry cathedral, thanks to Games Workshop's typically detailed miniatures bristling with ornate turrets and spires.
The physical game was discontinued in 2013, but it like Johnny Depp in Transcendence, it will live on in the digital realm. Tindalos Interactive (in partnership with publisher Focus Home Interactive) has announced that it's making Battlefleet Gothic: Armada.
Reimagined as a real-time strategy game, Armada will, like its tabletop predecessor, see players take control of a heavily-armed battlefleet belonging to Imperial, Chaos, Eldar or Ork hordes. The game will be powered by Unreal Engine 4, and while it's still early days for Armada, the first screenshots give us plenty of what we'd expect: big, »
Ahead of its premiere in March, A&E has released the first trailer for The Returned, a remake of the French TV series Les Revenants, which we have for you below along with a batch of promotional images from the show…
The Returned focuses on a small town that is turned upside down when several local people, who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear, bringing with them both positive and detrimental consequences. As families are reunited, the lives of those who were left behind are challenged on a physical and emotional level. Interpersonal relationships are examined with intrigue and depth as strange phenomena begin to occur.
The Returned premieres on March 9th and stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Mark Pellegrino (Lost) , Jeremy Sisto (Six Feet Under), India Ennenga (Treme), Sandrine Holt (House of Cards), Agnes Bruckner (24), Sophie Lowe (Once Upon a Time in Wonderland), Tandi Wright »

Syfy is trying to get its mojo back. With a noticeable dearth of quirkier selections on its line-up in the past few months, the network promised a return-to-form of sorts in 2015 (which pretty much means, “Hey you liked Battlestar Galactica, right?!”) They started with Ascension as a holiday mini-series event, which, despite some iffy writing and stiff acting, was twisty, entertaining television for most of its run. Now the network has 12 Monkeys, an adaptation of the Terry Gilliam film from the mid-nineties that not many people saw but everyone who did loved. And honestly, I could see the same fate befalling Syfy’s new effort if the show, beyond its pilot, manages to knock down the dominoes it sets up.

When Battlestar Galactica aired its first regular-series episode 10 years ago, there were science-fiction TV shows and fantasy TV shows, but you wouldn't quite call any of them "popular." Lost was halfway through its first season, but Lost then was only barely a science-fiction show—years away from time travel and alternate timelines and immortal eyeliner and magic lighthouses with magic mirrors. »

After good but slightly formulaic procedurals became Syfy’s norm over the past couple of years, the network is doing its best to make a push back into serialized, science fiction storytelling with shows more similar in scope to the network’s most beloved (and critically acclaimed) series of all-time, Battlestar Galactica. One of the most highly anticipated of these new series is The Expanse, which does not yet have an official premiere date but is slated to hit Syfy this year, and the network has just released first trailer for the show. Set 200 years in the future, after mankind has colonized the solar system, the 10-episode thriller follows a hardened detective (Thomas Jane, Hung) and a rogue ship’s captain (Steven Strait, Magic City) as their investigation into a missing young woman evolves into a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history. In addition to Jane and… »

Syfy recently admitted that since Battlestar Galactica wrapped they've kind of dropped the ball in terms of developing serious genre TV. Now with shows like Ascension, Helix and The Expanse, they are hoping to get back to more dense storytelling.
This first trailer for The Expanse features some impressive sets and visual effects along with a great cast of character actors we've seen in some great shows recently. But, in usual Syfy fashion there are also some goofy things going on like funky looking zero gravity sex and Thomas Jane in a pulpy detective hat. Somtimes things that work on the page don't exactly translate to the screen.
Spoiler TV have discovered that when Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for its midseason première on March 3rd, the title of its first ep. (season 2, episode 11) back will be "Aftershocks". This obviously has to do with the team dealing with the fallout of last year's eventful midseason finale, but it's also a reference to the new powers displayed by Skye Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) after she emerged from her "Inhuman" cocoon as Quake. We also found out that Battlestar Galactica's Edward James Olmos had joined the cast of season 2 in a mysterious role, and here is a recent set snap of the actor taken by King-Na Wen. I just love my job! Working with my heroes! Welcome to #AgentsofSHIELD, @edwardjolmos!

It's be 10 years since Ronald D. Moore's Battlestar Galactica hit the small screen, and I find that hard to believe. There's not many shows that I'm willing to watch from week to week, as opposed to marathoning, but BStarG was one of 'em. While the show focused on the continuing war between man and the machines they created, it used its premise to tell stories that were relatable to our present situation. The pilot episodes were a brilliant analogy for »

It's been 10 years since Battlestar Galactica aired the first episode of its excellent ongoing television series. But there's one aspect of Battlestar that threatens to hold it back from modern-classic status: its ending. Do a quick Google on Battlestar's ending and you'll get a pretty quick read on the popular opinion surrounding it—it's bad. This matters a lot more than it used to. Thanks to the modern ubiquity of streaming video, what sells us on a show is often the gestalt narrative of an entire season or series—the promise that clicking on "season one, episode one" will take »

The former “Xena: Warrior Princess” actress and the actor who starred on ABC’s “Betrayal” are joining Wgn America’s “Salem” for Season 2, which began production on Wednesday. Actors Joe Doyle (“Raw”) and Oliver Bell (“How to Make Love Like an Englishman”) are also set to join the cast of the witch drama, set in 17th century Salem, Massachusetts, site of the infamous real-life witch trials that resulted in executions of 20 people.

I will say this for Fxx's new comedy "Man Seeking Woman": It commits to a bit — for good and for ill. In the show, which debuts tonight at 10:30 (after the very funny 10th season premiere of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"), Jay Baruchel plays Josh, a young guy just dumped by his long-term girlfriend Maggie (Maya Erskine) and struggling to jump back into the dating pool. To help him along, his sister Liz (Britt Lower) sets him up on a blind date, only the woman is a troll. Literally. An actual, monstrous, garbage-eating, non-verbal troll. And it's not like this is a whimsical fantasy where Josh briefly imagines his blind date in troll form. No, it turns out that in the very elastic universe in which "Man Seeking Woman" takes place, trolls are real — and aliens, and other impossible characters and creatures. When Josh learns that Maggie has »

10 years ago today, the pilot episode of Battlestar Galactica aired on the Sci-Fi channel—back before the Sci-Fi channel forgot how to spell its own name. The episode was called "33." It wouldn't be quite fair to call it the best pilot episode in the history of dramatic television; the show technically started 13 months earlier, with a two-part miniseries that introduced the universe of Battlestar Galactica, then basically destroyed that entire universe. So you could argue that all the hard work was done before the writers started season one. They already had a dynamite cast; the characters had already been introduced »

When fans think of Star Wars, their minds fill with images of ships zooming about the stars, unrestrained by the limits of current technology. It is these ships that allow the denizens of the galaxy to effortlessly cross the unimaginable gulfs of the void, from beyond the rim all the way to the galactic core, in as much or as little time as the plot requires.
But, more importantly, these ships often look incredibly cool while doing that, and it’s this innate coolness that provides the Star Wars films with much of their visual majesty.
Whether the ships are brought to cinematic life as physical models (small or large), as CGI, or even matte paintings, what remains constant is the amazing attention to detail and the powerfully original aesthetic of their looks. When Star Wars seized the imaginations of an entire generation in 1977, the impact of these breathtakingly »

Yesterday I had a thought – which I do have on occasion.
I have always considered myself a “socially conscious” comics writer. This means that, if you look over my body of work, you will notice that I have told stories that, in one way or another, reflect “real world” events and the consequences of those events on my characters. Notably, of course, in my 1986 Lois Lane mini-series about child abduction and abuse, “When It Rains, God is Crying” (coincidentally edited by ComicMix’s Robert Greenberger when we were both working for DC, he an editor and me a freelancer), but also as far back as “Moon River,” my first story in New Talent Showcase, an admittedly tyro effort to portray the outcome of a closed, dictatorial society on an individual. And of course there was “Chalk Drawings,” which I co-wrote with George Pérez for Wonder Woman, which was a story about suicide. »
