Babylon 5: the wonder that is Stephen Furst’s Vir Cotto

Jules-Pierre Malartre Jun 28, 2017

We salute a much-loved Babylon 5 character, played by the much-missed Stephen Furst...

A little less than a year ago, in the wake of Jerry Doyle’s passing, Babylon 5 creator J.M. Straczynski made a passionate plea to the universe; too many B5 alumni had died already. Following the untimely deaths of Michael O’Hare, Richard Biggs, Andreas Katsulas, Jeff Conaway, and more recently Jerry Doyle, Straczynski was “goddamned tired of it” and he asked the universe to “knock it off for a while”.

Unfortunately, the universe didn’t listen since on June 16, Stephen Furst joined his fellow departed B5 co-stars on “the other side of the veil”.

Most will remember Furst as lovable Kent 'Flounder' Dorfman in the 1978 cult classic Animal House, but to sci-fi

Free From Conformity

On the occasion of their new mega-release on Leo Records, The Art of Perelman-Shipp Vols. 1-7 and their ensuing CD release party at Le Poisson Rouge on May 7th at 9:30 P.M. with Italian Surf Academy, I asked Ivo Perelman and Matthew Shipp the following questions.

Steve Dalanchinsky: How long have you been associated both as collaborators and friends?

When did you first encounter each other's music?

What projects are planned in the future after this mammoth undertaking?

Talk a bit about how your musical languages differ and where they merge/intermingle.

In brief, discuss your philosophies about free music inside/outside lyricism tune structures as well as spiritual/social ideas/ideals in the music.

Do you feel there are any relevant messages in the music if any?

Is there anything either of you want to add about the ongoing energies/ forces that unite and bind you to each

Tribeca TV Lineup 2017 Unveiled: ’Handmaid’s Tale,’ Albert Einstein’s ‘Genius,’ Ken Burns’ Vietnam War Doc and More

Tribeca TV Lineup 2017 Unveiled: ’Handmaid’s Tale,’ Albert Einstein’s ‘Genius,’ Ken Burns’ Vietnam War Doc and More
Cue the handmaids.

The Tribeca Film Festival announced its second annual Tribeca TV program on Thursday and it includes a range of world premieres, popular show returns and a slate of independent pilots. One of the most highly anticipated debuts will be Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

Tribeca 2017 Lineup: New Fillms From Alex Gibney, Azazel Jacobs and Laurie Simmons Lead the Eclectic Mix

The series has been in the news lately, and not only because it will premiere soon. The dystopian story about a government forcing fertile women to become breeders for their high-ranking officials has struck a nerve among progressive women who are wary of having their health and reproductive rights controlled. Recently, protestors dressed in the handmaids’ red robes and white bonnets made an appearance in the Texas Senate gallery as its members were passing abortion legislation.

Westworld episode 10 review: The Bicameral Mind

David Crow Dec 5, 2016

The Westworld season finale opens its mystery box, giving us a violent, delightful gift. Major spoilers ahead...

This review contains spoilers.

1.10 The Bicameral Mind

Of all the films that the Nolan brothers have collaborated on over the years, The Prestige is perhaps the most flawlessly and intricately designed. It seems to effortlessly place narrative layer atop narrative layer until, finally, the end result is the viewer traversing the ever-dizzying design of the movie’s structure without a sense of confusion… yet you’d probably be lying if you said that you knew for certain what was exactly going on the first time that you watched it. The point is that all of the threads

24 great comedy shows that deserve more love

We asked Den Of Geek’s writers to recommend brilliant comedy shows that deserve to have more of a fuss made about them. Here they are...

Banging a drum about stuff we love is more or less our remit on Den Of Geek - hence what many readers have started referring to as the ‘inexplicably regular' appearance of Statham, squirrels and Harold Bishop from Neighbours on these pages.

To that end then, we asked our writers which comedy shows (past and present, UK or otherwise, on TV, radio, or online…) deserved more praise, and here are the ones they chose. You might already like them too, or you might discover something new to dig out and enjoy. That’s the fun of it.

Please note that this list isn’t ranked in any order, nor is it exhaustive. It’s compiled from the opinions of a group of different people,

Pop Idol: Zoe Birkett, Rik Waller - where are they now?

We're not going to lie - when we found out that Zoe Birkett was entering the Big Brother house earlier this week, the Digital Spy office got very excited indeed. What a blast from the past - and how much the "little podgy kid from Pop Idol with the dreadlocks" (her words, not ours) has grown up in the last 13 years. But it got us thinking - what happened to the other contestants? We put on our deerstalker, pulled out our magnifying glass and started digging...

Series One


Korben, whose real name is Chris Niblett, now seems to be going by the hybrid Korben Niblett. He previously worked at Jemma Kidd Make Up School, but according to his LinkedIn page (oh yes), earlier this year he launched his own company, Evolve Beauty. Not so much of the singing anymore, then...

Rik Waller

Well, for one thing, he's not Rik anymore - it's Richard now!

Adam Hills's favourite TV

The Australian stand-up and The Last Leg host on his TV dos, don'ts and won'ts

Unmissable show?

Veep. To be really honest, I have an aversion to shows that glorify death and killing. So I never got into The Sopranos… I know that it doesn't just glorify death and killing; the whole point is the moral quandary. I got into The West Wing instead. I just devoured The West Wing. I think that's why I enjoyed Veep. That has the essence of The West Wing in it. I prefer stuff like The West Wing, The Hour. Kind of intelligent, thoughtful miniseries. The only things you can make a TV series about these days are either death or politics.

Comfort TV?

M*A*S*H. I've been watching it since I was seven or eight, with my dad. I can't imagine there's an episode I haven't seen, to the point where I know lines from it.

Which Upcoming Miniseries Is Right for You?

  • Vulture
Which Upcoming Miniseries Is Right for You?
So, it looks like we're not getting a Hillary Clinton miniseries after all. That's a shame. But fear not, miniseries fans, because there are so, so many miniseries in the works right now. So many. Here's but a sampling of what's to come.I would like to watch something about history. You're in luck: Discovery Channel has green-lit a Braveheart-era miniseries about the Scottish fight for independence in the thirteenth century. No, older! The megapopular Bible miniseries is getting a sequel (another testament, if you will), covering the parts that occur after Jesus' crucifixion. Older! Lifetime is working on a Cleopatra four-parter. Ack! Too old! Something about America. There's the remake of North and South that covers pre–Civil War through the Reconstruction. Set a little earlier than that is The Hour of Peril, the true story of how two detectives foiled a plan to assassinate Lincoln before his inauguration.

65th Emmys: Rachel Bennett & Rachel Horner’s Live Chat!

By Rachel Bennett

Television Contributor


What a weird Emmys that was, right?

Although we saw some tremendous highs, like AMC’s Breaking Bad finally winning Outstanding Drama Series, there were also some major confusing upsets.

As much as I like Jeff Daniels, I don’t understand how he won Lead Actor in a Drama Series, and I hate that Elisabeth Moss lost in two categories — both of which she deserved to win. It also would’ve been nice to have seen ABC’s Modern Family finally lose its hold on the Outstanding Comedy Emmy, but there’s always next year.

However, I’m really happy for the fantastic Merritt Wever and Tony Hale, who won Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, respectively. Those were pleasant surprises, to say the least.

The Colbert Report winning Outstanding Variety Program was also a huge highlight of the night.

Peaky Blinders recap: episode one

This Birmingham-set gangster drama is British telly trying to do Us-style box set viewing. But it's styled like a John Lewis ad with almost as many cliches. Will you keep watching?

Spoiler Alert: This blog is for those who are watching series one of Peaky Blinders. Don't read on if you haven't seen episode one.

Birmingham, England, 1919. In the first episode of BBC2's new period gangster drama/steampunk beer commercial, we learn that Brum's postwar slums were mostly peopled with actors who weren't from there.

Before we even get to the amazing set design or the slick, ad-style art direction, or the way Sam Neill keeps a straight face when he says, "It's beaver", we need to tackle two problems. The accents are all over the shop and the dialogue is often eye-poppingly bad. That said, Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory and Sam Neill count for a lot, even when

BBC 2, BBC 4 and geek TV

Feature Andrew Blair 30 Aug 2013 - 06:14

Andrew reports back from the BBC 2 and 4 'Meet the Controller' session at this year's Edinburgh International Television Festival...

BBC 2 and BBC 4 are not, at first glance, providing huge beefy slabs of geek-meat for us to sink our teeth into. However, we like to think we cover a broad remit here at Den of Geek, and you can be a geek about anything. Personally, I think there's overlap between arguments over as 'the Doctor's race and/or gender' and 'the squad numbers worn by Colin Hendry during his time at Rangers F.C.'.

You may note the number of BBC 2 dramas and comedies that have geek appeal: Parade's End. The Fall. The Thick Of It. All reviewed on this site. You may be a fan of cakes, cats and sewing, in which case, BBC 2 is totally your friend. You may have noticed Ivan Radford's
