'Battlestar Galactica' Would Be "Fundamentally Different" Today, Cast Says at Comic-Con Reunion

In the lore of Battlestar Galactica, there was always something special about the number five. For 2017, two other numbers have pinged on the Dradis: two and 25.

Monster-Movie Mayhem: ‘Jabberwock’ Review

Stars: Michael Worth, Tahmoh Penikett, Kacy Barnfield, Raffaello Degruttola, Steven Waddington | Written by Raul Inglis, Rafael Jordan | Directed by Steven R. Monroe

Twas brillig, and the slithy toves, did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, and the mome raths outgrabe. Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun, the frumious Bandersnatch!

Taking the classic nonsense Lewis Carrol poem Jabberwocky as its inspiration (the poem is referred to in the film as a song recited to children to frighten them) Jabberwock (orJabberwock: Dragon Siege to give the film its full title) is yet another in the line of low-budget dragon movies to be released straight to DVD in the UK (other dragon-based titles include Age of the Dragons, Dawn of the Dragon Slayer, Dragon Dynasty, Dragon Crusaders, and so on and so forth) and like

7 Great Independent Pilots from SeriesFest We Hope Become TV Series
The world of independent television is pretty chaotic right now, largely because, unlike the indie film scene, there’s no clear trajectory to success. Some shows threw all their money into shooting a pilot. Some shows have shot multiple episodes. Some shows have found alternate distribution opportunities already. Some shows remain unseen. All of them, though, want to go beyond their current status.

As an attendee of SeriesFest 2016, I had the opportunity to see a large percentage of the pilots screened as part of the independent pilot competition. Some of these pilots were not world premieres, but all of the ones I saw represented the impressive state of independent production today; where a shoestring budget can still produce content on a level equal to what you might watch on TV. Below are just a few of the pilots that impressed me most,

Winning for Best Drama was “Farr,” a crime drama set in Northern Ireland (which also won the same prize at last fall’s ITVFest). Per the drama jury’s statement, “The pilot we would like to recognize is ‘Farr’ since we were invested in the characters and storyline. We can’t wait to see how it unfolds!”

Best Comedy was awarded to “Truth Slash Fiction,” which revolved around a teenage girl’s discovery of erotic fan fiction. According to the jury’s statement, “We decided to recognize work that exists as a true pilot – establishing a mood, conflicts, characters, relationships and an ongoing story that would make a compelling series.

Superman Gets Mean in First Clip for Justice League: Gods and Monsters

  • Cinelinx
The DC Universe's next animated film, Justice League: Gods and Monsters is hitting blu-ray next month, but before it hits, you can check out the first clip from the film, showing how the alternate reality team handles the world...

I'm very excited to see what Justice League: Gods and Monsters has to offer. It's a very different take on the heroes we all know and love, and DC's animated films are almost always impressive and fun to watch. So this little adventure should be interesting indeed, especially based on this first clip:

Animation legend Bruce Timm returns to the popular DC Universe Original Movies with his unique new vision of a Justice League you’ve never seen before. "Justice League: Gods & Monsters" features a Superman born of General Zod’s blood, a Batman with a healthy dose of bat in the man, and a Wonder Woman rising from the ranks of the New Gods.

The Portal, Riftworld Chronicles and fan support

Here's how short fantasy film The Portal, starring Tahmoh Penikett, was turned into TV series Riftworld Chronicles...

A not so very long time ago, in this galaxy, in those geeky communities where the card-carrying members of the geek clubs congregate, a trailer was making its rounds for a certain short film. Entitled The Portal,” it starred Tahmoh Penikett (of Supernatural and Battlestar Galactica fame, thus upping the geek factor some more) and promised an intriguing premise: the dimension-travelling wizard Alar (played by the aforementioned Penikett) accidentally ends up in our magic-less, technology-full world, and attempts to navigate it. Hilarity, naturally, ensues. Fans watched the trailer, shared, liked, commented, and demanded, when do we get to see the damn thing?

Tempers grew. Frustrated keysmashes occurred. The question was repeated again and again. Supernatural aired some more episodes with Penikett, and everyone wanted to see the charming and adorably clueless Alar battle

‘Supernatural’ Season 9 Finale Delivers a Game-Changing Twist

[This is a review of the Supernatural season 9 finale. There will be Spoilers].


What may very well be the penultimate season of Supernatural has come to an end, leaving a lengthy wait before the CW pairs its return with The Flash this upcoming fall season. Castiel’s army attacks; Metatron attempts to take over Earth; and Dean shows everyone what happens when he gets really angry.

In this week’s finale episode, “Do You Believe in Miracles?,” written by showrunner Jeremy Carver, the power of the First Blade continues to consume Dean (Jensen Ackles), while Gadreel (Tahmoh Penikett) joins in on the fight to stop Metatron’s (Curtis Armstrong) takeover of Heaven and Earth.

Tahmoh Penikett, Misha Collins

Supernatural, Season 9, Episode 21: “King of the Damned”

Written by Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming

Directed by P.J. Pesce

Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on The CW

Throughout the season, there has been two wars for power, as Abaddon has threatened Crowley’s position as the ruler of Hell, while Metatron has set himself up as Angel enemy number one by tossing everyone out of Heaven. With Castiel reluctantly taking up the mantle of resistance leader, Metatron no longer remained uncontested, while Abaddon continued to pose the biggest threat to the world and the Winchesters. This week’s episode sees major blows delivered on both wars, in a compelling outing that sees a key Angel potentially switch sides.

Castiel and Gadreel forming an uneasy alliance is a fascinating development. Since Gadreel was revealed to be falsely residing in Sam, it has been clear that the Angel
