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. »

McClintock will appear as Lieutenant Sam D’Agostino, a neighborhood bully who grew up with Wilson’s Backstrom. Per the character description, McClintock’s Sam was a “rotten, thieving punk,” responsible for stealing from Backstrom. Now grown, Sam and his brother are firefighters who everyone believes are heroic, though Backstrom is convinced that they are the same “worthless bits of slime” that they always were.
McClintock tweeted the news Sunday evening.

Billed as a complete reimagining, SyFy's serial take on Terry Gilliam's post-apocalyptic "12 Monkeys" retains it's dark imagery, but will Gilliam's frenetic underlying messages ultimately be lost in the mix?
The fictional worlds of director Terry Gilliam (The Fisher King, Brazil, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) are beautifuilly profound and gorgeously bizarre to say the least, always combining the harsh grit of reality with the sublime wonders of the imagination. The famed director's 1995-outing 12 Monkeys was no exception.
Set in a distant future, 12 Monkeys saw Bruce Willis in the role of convict protagonist Cole, who is (messily) sent into the past by a shady government group with the task of seeking out and stopping the cause of mankind's current dilemna: a life underground in the dark to escape a worldwide pandemic that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction.
With his unique directorial style, Gilliam brought forth a haunting »

The universal theme of personal principle vs. human necessity gets a workout in languid but inexorably powerful morality play, “Runoff.” Set against the backdrop of an economically challenged rural America, and driven by a riveting performance from Joanne Kelly (TV series “Warehouse 13,” “Hostages”) as a woman who discovers how far she’s willing to go to save the family farm, the film is an impressive calling card for first-time writer-director Kimberly Levin, and could sustain an arthouse run for a savvy distributor with a nationwide strategy. After the movie’s debut in competition at the Los Angeles Film Festival, the bees in the field won’t be the only things buzzing.
A slow montage accompanied by an appropriately foreboding dirge of drum and strings shows us elements of the food chain — establishing the thing most at risk in the film — before the camera settles in on Betty Freeman (Kelly »
