The feel-good Internet story of the year, the resurrection of Reading Rainbow finally came to fruition this weekend. The show ran for twenty-three years on PBS before being unceremoniously cancelled in late 2006. Since then, host LeVar Burton & co have launched a Reading Rainbow app – an education tool for children, allowing them to read and view a vast number of books and interviews; though it wasn’t until earlier this year, with Burton’s impassioned plea via Kickstarter, that Reading Rainbow truly returned into the national consciousness. Burton’s Kickstarter campaign sought to raise funds to launch the app on the web, smart-phones and other streaming devices, as well as for free for needy impoverished schools. Within eleven hours, one million dollars had been raised for Reading Rainbow – and when all was said and done, over five million in sum had been donated. To honor the many people who contributed to the cause, »

Adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling books, the Starz series Outlander spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history and adventure, all in one epic tale. The story follows Claire Randall (Caitroina Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world that is threatening and dangerous. Once there, she meets a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, named Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), and they are undeniably drawn to each other. During this exclusive interview with Collider, executive producer Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) talked about how he ended up bringing this story to TV, creating its world, making the show for fans of the book and trusting that viewers that aren’t familiar with it will get sucked into the show, how closely they’re working with author Diana Gabaldon (who even has a cameo »

Falling Skies wrapped up its fourth season Sunday with what may be the show’s most hopeful yet most enigmatic season closer.
Spoiler Alert: Details of tonight’s season 4 finale lie ahead!
The last couple minutes of the two-hour finale ended on a very hopeful note back on Earth. As Hal says, “The Espheni are sitting ducks for a change,” thanks to Lexi’s sacrificial destruction of the aliens’ power core. But above Earth’s atmosphere, things got really weird — the kind of weird that should have fans theorizing and debating throughout the long wait to the fifth and final season. »

If you haven’t been watching Outlander, you need to rectify that situation right now. It is hella good fun. Here’s the set up: The series begins in 1945, just as World War 2 ends. Claire Randall, a combat nurse, is recently reunited with her husband, Frank, with whom she is very much in love. They go on a trip to Inverness where she touches a magic druid rock and is sent back in time to 1743, where she must survive by her wits and try desperately not to fall in love with a dashing rapscallion named Jamie. You should watch this show. Here is why:
1. It has an amazing geek pedigree. It was adapted from a hugely popular series of fantasy novels written by Diana Gabaldon. It was developed by Ronald D. Moore of the “I made that amazing Battlestar Galactica series everyone loved” Ronald D. Moores.
2. It is mostly set »

The Strain focuses on only the critical plots this week and is much improved for it. Here's Billy's review...
This review contains spoilers.
1.7 For Services Rendered
Before anyone gets the wrong idea, I still think that The Strain is a long way short of being a good TV show. But, For Services Rendered was markedly more entertaining than what passed for TV last week.
Forgetting plenty of subplots (Vasily, Boliva, Ephraim’s wife and son) the episode concentrates on just a few critical threads. The opening sequence introduces Joan's husband, played by Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica), a recognisable face that you might reasonably assume might stick around for an episode or two. Nah.
There’s a special stupidity field that encompasses Joan Luss’s neighbourhood that stops people following the simplest of instructions, or having any common sense whatsoever. It could be argued that NY taxi drivers won't follow any instructions, »
There’s nothing like a good curse to stretch your lungs on a morning, is there? The odd expletive can be a satisfying release from stress and swearing is even known to relieve pain on occasion, but effing and blinding in public is still frowned upon by many people.
Thankfully, those who need a f***ing fix but don’t want to cause offense have plenty of fake swear words to choose from amongst the veritable cornucopia of fictional curses offered up in science fiction and fantasy books, movies and television shows.
Many writers are faced with censorship when it comes to profanity in their work, especially on national television. So, rather than fighting for the right to include three a-holes and a s***-kicker every week, it becomes easier to simply just make up analogue words that mean more or less the same thing.
Many of those words »

Science fiction classics are making a comeback. A sequel to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner is currently in the works at Alcon Entertainment, and cult favorites Battlestar Galactica and Babylon 5 are both being adapted for the big screen.
Now a more recent science fiction property is making a comeback – as a TV show.
Now, the deal hasn’t closed quite yet, but should the series go forward at Amblin Television, Spielberg is expected to choose an actor as the lead, just as he did with Halle Berry on CBS’ newest sci-fi drama Extant.

THR is reporting that Friday Night Lights actress Adrianne Palicki has joined the second season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as fan-favorite character, Avenger, and future wife of Hawkeye, Mockingbird.
Mockingbird is the alter-ego of super spy Bobbi Morse, who will first appear in the fifth episode of the upcoming season, debuting “perhaps not as an ally to Coulson and his team.”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. marks Palicki’s third superhero television series. She infamously played Wonder Woman in the failed NBC pilot from David E. Kelley in 2011, and played the character Nadia in The WB’s Aquaman pilot in 2006.
Palicki is just the latest addition to the series, which has been picking up quite a few guest stars over the past few weeks including Xena: Warrior Princess and Battlestar Galactica alum Lucy Lawless as S.H.I.E.L.D. veteran Isabel Hartly, Reed Diamond (Dollhouse) as Hydra baddie Daniel Whitehall a. »
