New interview with Sasha Roiz and the weekend monster update

Let's start the weekly round-up with Grimm.

Grimm's ratings dropped a little this week, but the show still won the 18-49 demo in its timeslot, finishing ahead of CSI: NY, Fringe and Supernatural, and rising by a full frakking ratings point (1.8) after Chuck (0.8). Wake up, Chuck.

Hitfix visited the set in Portland recently and posted a lengthy report. Here is a snippet:

Sasha Roiz on how his character will develop later in the series: "I’m not a Grimm descendent, but I'm a descendent of a long line that dates back just as Grimm does and we have a bit of a history and a past, so my line is a royal line and that will slowly unfold throughout the series."Collider has a longer interview with Sasha and Reggie Lee (more at the link):

It’s nice to see your character – like the main character – has the duality.

Yes, it's Husbands, a web series about "two guys, a newly dating couple, who celebrate a new marriage equality law in Vegas and wake up married." A couple of snippets from the interview:

Km: What do you hope to become of Husbands in the long run? If it simply stays as a free series on the web, will that satisfy not only you but the actors?

Je: Honestly, I would love to see Husbands turn into a network television show. I’m loving the freedom that we’re enjoying as we put it together ourselves, but there’s something about it that feels so accessible — it’s Ab Fab, Dharma and Greg, Will and Grace … it feels

New interviews with Kevin Murphy & Bear McCreary

Hollywood Reporter has a new interview with Kevin Murphy. Among other things, he talks about Caprica and some of the challenges they faced in the second half of the season. The relevant bit:

The Hollywood Reporter: You’ve had some quickly-canceled shows on your resume. What did you learn from them?

Kevin Murphy: In a case like Caprica, I came in halfway into the order. After a week or so, Ron Moore and David Eick promoted me to showrunner and one of the interesting things there was figuring out how to make it grand -- how to make it live up to the [Battlestar Galactica] franchise while being realistic about the fact that the show had ended up costing NBCUniversal a lot more than they had originally expected or budgeted for. Part of that was the nature of the beast. When you’re doing a show set on a spaceship, you

Great choice there for most people: either steal or be spoiled. Thanks for that too, Syfy.

Caprica 1.04 "Gravedancing" Recap

Caprica was all over the place tonight, but not in a bad way. Sorta. Story lines and character arcs took turns to the extreme and downright delectable, but I am still a bit thrown away about all of the similarities to our own Earth culture, which was a catch-22 tonight in my view. The reason? The Caprican culture has very little to add to shock value when it comes to human relationships, but the flip side of that coin reveals that is why the show works in some areas. It shows that no matter where and when, the human race is just one big race of assholes who need to get their crap straight. Caprica, as I said before, is a mirror to our own culture and tonight's episode, "Gravedancing", splattered Windex all over the surface so we could get a better look at ourselves. And boy are we ugly…
