There will be plenty of new faces when Orphan Black returns for its third season (and I’m not just talking about all the new male clones played by Ari Millen). The BBC America series is adding five new characters to its ranks for Season 3, and pretty much all of them are genre show alums, meaning that they will fit into the world of this sci-fi show perfectly. Today it was announced that James Frain (Grimm, Intruders) will guest star as Ferdinand, “a well-educated, ‘cleaner’ who is both charming and intimidating.” Ferdinand is also “a powerful player in a secretive, multi-national political faction that operates with questionable ethics and a ruthless approach.” Additionally, Lost Girl‘s Ksenia Solo has been cast as Shay, “a soulful and compassionate holistic healer with a great sense of humor destined to become a new friend to Cosima.” Meanwhile, Kyra Harper (Warehouse 13) will play Dr. »

BBC America announced on Tuesday the addition of five incoming cast members when the sci-fi favorite returns for Season 3 next year.

Syfy knows they messed up. Now they have a plan to win you back. The cable network’s top executives won’t say this in such blunt language, but they acknowledge that somewhere along the line, the network missed an opportunity to have more great scripted dramas. It happened sometime after the name change from Sci Fi Channel to Syfy and the conclusion of Battlestar Galactica—the acclaimed series that was once mentioned by critics alongside titles like Mad Men and The Sopranos as representing TV's top-tier of storytelling. Once the weary Battlestar crew decided to settle on Earth in the show’s 2009 series finale, »

Ten people arrive at a secluded mountain resort to find it completely deserted. With no gas for the return trip, the visitors are forced to stay and investigate the mystery surrounding the abandoned lodge. As their friends start disappearing for no apparent reason, tensions grow as the survivors try to figure out what is gong on, without disappearing themselves.
If there is one thing I have learned just from watching the horror films over the last few weeks it is that going to a secluded lodge which is ‘miles from anywhere’ may seem like a fantastic idea but never is. If you are low on fuel by the time you get there, you might as well just lie down on the floor and wait for the inevitable. »

Ensemble films can be quite the tricky endeavor, especially for a first time director. Making sure one person has their performances dialed can be a pain in the ass, but a whole group of people?, That can be murder. Luckily, in the case of Travis Oates and his feature debut, Don’T Blink, the ensemble not only shines, but gives viewers one hell of a time while doing so.
Focusing on a group of ten friends heading to a secluded resort for a weekend getaway, Don’T Blink doesn’t waste any time in letting audiences get to know it’s characters. Jack and Tracy (Chromeskull: Laid To Rest‘s Brian Austin Green and American Pie‘s Mena Suvari), a happy couple on the verge of the next step in a relationship leads the group, filled with couples Sam and Charlotte (The Amazing Spiderman‘s Leif Gantvoort and First Winter »

In this gripping suspense-thriller, 10 friends head to a remote mountain resort for a quiet weekend getaway. But upon their arrival, the rustic lodge is more than just sleepy … it’s deserted.
Food is served, baths are drawn and signs of guests are everywhere but the forest and cabin are eerily silent, devoid of all life. With no gas, cell service or phones to be found, the anxious group is left wondering what to do next.

If a step-by-step guide were written for how to create a standard zombie narrative, it would be titled "Z Nation." Start with one part outbreak footage, and mix in some overlapping audio clips of news regarding said outbreak.
Simmer it in a stock of basic characters with one part brown-haired stubbly leader, one part love interest, two parts mysterious drifters with unexplained combat prowess, and three parts uninteresting zombie chow to beef up the cast.
Marinade in a standard post-apocalyptic world, equal parts towns trying to make it and traveling caravans with dubious intent. Bake for 45 minutes in standard character dilemmas, adding in a mission to cure the virus for some longevity. Garnish with dialogue.
I try not to be too critical of things for being standard. I can’t expect everyone watching something to have the same breadth of exposure as I do, and in my experience there’s »

Even a slow Data episode is better than most, says James of this week's Tng look-back, The Most Toys...
This review contains spoilers.
3.22 The Most Toys
Data, the crew's most disposable member, is ferrying the highly explosive element Hytritium back and forth between the Enterprise and the ship of an eccentric, huckster-ish trader named Kivas Fajo. Shortly after he radios in his final delivery, the traders zap him with a taser and start listing his ingredients. On the way back to the ship, his shuttle blows up! He's probably killed instantly. Or Is He?
No, he isn't. Though the Enterprise crew is shocked by this suspiciously watertight death, the crew has to deliver the Hytritium they were collecting, and so off they head, leaving Fajo behind. Data then wakes up aboard Fajo's ship and finds that he's been added to the trader's collection of rare and curious items. He's basically Pt Barnum in space. »
