When Sam Anderson booked the recurring role of teacher Danny Pink on the long-running British time travel show Doctor Who, he couldn’t wait to spread the good news. “I got the call and was like, ‘Woah, man, I got Doctor Who!'” the actor says. “My agent rang again. ‘Don’t tell anyone!’ I was like, ‘I just told a roomful of people!’ But luckily it was a couple of actors and some jazz musicians, who really couldn’t care less. So I wasn’t too worried.”
Anderson makes his debut on tomorrow night’s episode, “Into the Dalek, »

A comedy episode starring the Troi family? Don't mind if we do. Here's James' latest Star Trek: Tng look-back...
This review contains spoilers.
3.24 Menage A Trois
The episode opens at a diplomatic reception on the Enterprise following a Betazoid trade summit, which – for the first time – was attended by the Ferengi. In Ten Forward, Commander Riker and a Ferengi crewman are playing Tri-Dimensional Chess, which is like our regular Bi-Dimensional Chess only completely incomprehensible. After Riker humiliates his opponent, he claims to have been distracted by the Algolian Ceremonial Rhythms which are being played in the background (oh yeah, that old chestnut.)
Across the room, Counsellor Troi is having dinner with her mother, Lwaxana, who berates her over her lack of a husband. When Riker and Deanna step away for a moment, Lwaxana is approached by Daimon Tog, leader of the Ferengi delegation, who offers to buy her (literally). She »
If you think being alone on Valentine’s Day is scary, the second month of the year just got a lot worse for you.
Emma Roberts and Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka are set to star together in the horror/thriller film February. Osgood Perkins, the son of Psycho actor Anthony Perkins who himself appeared in Legally Blonde and Star Trek, will write and direct. The story centers on Rose and Kat, two girls mysteriously left alone by their parents at their all-girls prep school during winter break when one becomes possessed by an unseen evil force.

Robert Downey, Jr. admitted some hard truths this week in Toronto.
Despite having a very obvious loyalty to the Avengers – if you’re living under a rock: he’s Tony Stark in JonFavreau’s Iron Man and its sequels – the actor admitted that James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, the sci-fi opera with “a bunch of a-holes” is the best Marvel movie: “[Guardians of the] Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever - and it’s odd for someone with, on occasion, an ego the size of mine to actually say that!”
“We’re talking about how the Iron Mans and the Thors and the Captain Americas and the Avengers movies have afforded Marvel the opportunity to essentially take what was a third-tier, minor, kind of upstart bit of potential from one of their comic books series and say: ‘Look!’” said Downey, Jr.
“It’s like you have a great quarterback, »

There’s always a few distinct things which will constantly remind a person they’re playing a Bethesda Softworks title. The worlds will be vast, the weapons plentiful, the hidden secrets without number – and the bugs they stumble upon as they drink in the rich environment will totally break the game. However, while they are so often regarded as a failing among any series, the glitches and errors of Bethesda’s releases are what adds to their charm.
While well thought out and polished enough to please any wide audience – as well as being immersive and quite often backed by surprisingly solid writing – it’s hard not to crack a grin upon being greeted by a man whose head is spinning wildly in place. Much like witnessing the odd special effects failure or ludicrous science in classic Star Trek, it’s these odd quirks which help the games to »

Jessie Robertson reports on Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con 2014….
So, this weekend I , along with my friend Jesse, packed up and headed to the Windy City for our first big major Con, Wizard World in Chicago. We were there from Friday night to Sunday afternoon, taking in all the sights, sounds, Deadpools and Harley Quinns!
For this article, I wanted to go over 5 things I really liked and 3 things I didn’t care for at the event…
Chicago Comic Con was held at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center, which is an enormous venue with easily accessible parking and great directions throughout the building on where you need to go. The website itself was highly detailed, and you get a guide when you enter the building that shows you every single celebrity, every panel and every vendor that will be involved in the event with times and it was super helpful. »

It's not like Girls isn't full of all sorts of nakedness. But is Zachary Quinto going to stripping down for his guest gig on the HBO series? It sure sounds like it. "I mean, it's Girls, so you can assume what you will," Dunham said on the Emmys red carpet when I asked about the possibility of the Star Trek hottie showing some skin. "I also want to see him naked—that's all you need to know for now." Talk about a tease! "I can tell you nothing except that he is as amazing onscreen as he is off," Dunham said of Quinto. "He is so much fun to work with and the minute that camera is on he's an actor with such a gift and such a gift for »
It is a beautiful summer afternoon in Ireland, and David Mitchell and I are walking up the High Road above the River Bandon, in the town of Kinsale, talking about supercontinents. One of the pleasures of hanging out with Mitchell is that he is, by self-identification, many kinds of nerd—a Star Trek nerd, a Doctor Who nerd, a map nerd, a taxonomy nerd, a tea nerd, a word nerd, and, for good measure, what you might call a nerd nerd: an enthusiast of nerdery of all kinds. At one point in our conversation, he speaks admiringly of sheep nerds.But right now, he is nerding out about geology. “I’m reading this book called The Origins of the Irish,” Mitchell says, “and it starts with the literal origins of Ireland: Where did this blob of rock come from?” Turns out it came from two blobs of rock on opposite »

Earlier this month, we reported that the cast and crew of the 1999 cult classic Galaxy Quest were open to returning for a sequel, and we were frankly pretty excited about the idea. Now, by Grabthar’s hammer, it’s actually happening… in the form of a comic book. That’s still exciting, right? Maybe?
According to Comic Book Resources, Idw Publishing will put out a Galaxy Quest ongoing series from Ghostbusters and Shooting Star comics writer Erik Burnham and artist Nacno Arranz, which will hit store shelves in 2015.
Burnham recently talked a bit about the direction of the book, and how it connects with the film, saying:
“Well, at the end of their movie, Tim Allen’s character, Jason, used the Omega 13 device to rewind time 13 seconds and undo the catastrophic death of his crew. (Um… sorry for the 15 year-old spoilers!) Messing with time. Maybe that affected more than the ship. »

Author Robb Pearlman has written a funny Star Trek kids book that parodies the old Dick and Jane books. It's called Star Trek Fun with Kirk and Spock, and thanks to Geek Art Gallery, we have some amusing illustrations from it to share with you. Make sure to read what's written on them too because it's great stuff that any Star Trek fan can enjoy. Here's an example:
"See the Enterprise. See the Enterprise go boldly. Go Go Go, Enterprise! Go Boldly! Join Kirk and Spock as they go boldly where no parody has gone before!
This Prime Directive primer steps through The Guardian of Forever to a simpler time of reading, writing, and red shirts. Fun with Kirk and Spock will help cadets of all ages master the art of reading as their favorite Starfleet officers, Klingons, Romulans, Andorians, and Gorn beam down into exciting adventures."
Enjoy the images! »

You don’t know why you haven’t watched it. Your nerdier friends have loved it since it was on PBS back in the day, and you knew a girl in high school who knit her own giant scarf during homeroom because that actor who looked kind of like Harpo Marx wore one when he played “the Doctor.” Maybe you’re like me, and when Doctor Who fandom started pushing Star Wars and Star Trek out of your local comic convention, your adolescent heart turned cold and rejected the low-budget British sci-fi series out of hand.But now you feel out of step. It’s one of those zeitgeist-y Game of Thrones “Winter Is Coming” moments, and you’re on the outside, looking in. You’ve heard that the new (well, newish, the reboot was almost ten years ago) Who is more popular in the U.S. than it’s »

The Austin Film Society teams up with aGLIFF tonight to bring the new documentary To Be Takei (my review for Paste) to the Marchesa for a one-off screening. It's a touching and genuinely funny profile of George Takei, whose career has taken him from Star Trek to social media icon and gay rights activist. This month's Roger Corman series continues this weekend with X: The Man With The X-Ray Eyes. This 1963 thriller screens tonight and again on Sunday in a 35mm print. On Wednesday night, Afs presents SXSW doc Big Joy: The Adventures of James Broughton (Don's review) and then the Barbara Stanwyck Essential Cinema series will close Thursday with Ball Of Fire. Screening in 35mm, this classic 1941 Howard Hawks comedy, written by Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett, pairs Stanwyck with Gary Cooper.
Over at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, The Complete David Lynch series is winding down but has several more gems on the way. »

Raucous, rowdy and regrettably scatter-brained, Cem Kaya’s side-splitting essay film “Remake, Remix, Rip-off” marks a noble, albeit disorganized effort to convey the appeal of vintage Turkish pop cinema to the world at large. As with sensory-overload Ozploitation docu “Not Quite Hollywood,” admission is worth it for the clips alone — hailing here from a period when the local industry was unabashedly pillaging Western source material and churning out lackluster riffs on such blockbusters as “Star Wars,” “Superman” and “The Wizard of Oz” — though a keen distrib would do well to sit down with Kaya and try to restructure this unwieldy feast.
Arriving on the centenary of Turkish cinema, mere months after “Winter Sleep” won the Palme d’or at Cannes, Kaya’s sprawling, obsessive undertaking represents seven years of unprecedented research into what is known as “Yesilcam.” (In much the same way Hollywood took its name from a nearby geographical marker, »

A classic Star Trek character returns in this week's look-back at a must-watch Tng season three episode...
This review contains spoilers.
In a startling moment of originality, the Enterprise is once again acting as the glorified taxi for a Federation Ambassador and hosting their negotiations. But this time, it's not boring. This time, they're transporting Ambassador Sarek!
Although his entourage seem over-protective of Sarek, insisting that he's excused from all non-essential functions, Sarek himself seems surprisingly energetic. Nonetheless, Picard lets him off the Mozart concert he had planned, and also tells Worf not to bother setting up the Tri-Dimensional Guess Who? Tournament (probably).
When checking out the conference room, Sarek gets uncharacteristically agitated at the unpreparedness of it. Geordi and Wesley don't help the situation by complaining about the smell of the slime the Legaran delegation live in and talking about Wesley's upcoming hot date with Ensign Suzanne Dumont. »
There was a time when two veteran straight actors such as John Lithgow and Alfred Molina, taking on the roles of a gay couple and their subsequent travails at married life would have been the tabloid equivalent of shock and awe. It still might raise some eyebrows, but Ira Sachs’ Love Is Strange is a testimony to societal progress in terms of storytelling. Now it will face the box office as the Specialty title platforms this weekend via Sony Classics. A real-life gay marriage takes the spotlight this weekend courtesy of Starz Digital doc To Be Takei about the multi-faceted actor/activist and social media talent who is best known for playing Hikaru Sulu in TV’s original Star Trek. It will be joined by Millennium Entertainment’s Are You Here with Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis and Amy Poehler which will open day and date by Mad Men writer Matthew Weiner. »

This review contains spoilers. Our spoiler-free review is here.
8.1 Deep Breath
Well, Peter Capaldi is really rather great. It seems logical to start there, as he's top of the list of big, beaming positives in Deep Breath, the starting point for Doctor Who series 8. From the moment he utters the word "shush" to a typically militaristic Strax, there's little doubt that the newly redesigned Tardis - now with books and dinosaur slobber - is in safe hands.
It's too early to call definitely, of course, but on the evidence of the (surprisingly) limited screen time he's given in Deep Breath, Capaldi is the Doctor we wanted him to be. Steeped in the tradition of the older Doctors, from his costume to his demeanour - noting himself that he's not got a »
The X-Files spent the better part of a decade scaring the socks off of television viewers by presenting a twisted menagerie of creeps and ghouls unlike any other show on television. Sure, Star Trek had the coolest alien races, and Buffy had some pretty awesome monsters, but most of them were pretty obviously just guys in rubber suits or with prosthetics glued to their faces growling a whole lot, and a lot of times they came off more campy than scary.
With a bigger budget than most of its closest competitors, The X-Files was able to branch out and come up with some incredibly unique creatures, aided by the fact that the show had a knack for hiring some generally unheard of yet extremely effective actors to portray them – a credit to their excellent casting department. Take the infamous Donnie Pfaster, for example. Though Pfaster had no real special power other than being absolutely, »
