FX’s “The Strain” offers unique take on the vampire genre

FX's "The Strain" offers unique take on the vampire genre

The catalyst for the beginning of the 13-part FX series The Strain is the arrival of a mysterious airplane, but co-executive producer Carlton Cuse, whose hit series Lost also involved a mystery about a plane, says that this was purely coincidental. “I wasn’t involved in the creation of that idea,” Cuse laughed during a recent interview, “but I think it’s a really good idea.” He’s right about that; the opening sequence of a plane somehow landing in New York City — with all of its passengers and crew seemingly dead — is a gripping, creepily atmospheric scenario, written and directed … Continue reading

“Sharknado 2″ highlights Syfy’s “Sharknado Week”

"Sharknado 2" highlights Syfy's "Sharknado Week"

Syfy’s original Sharknado was a social-media hit when it debuted last summer (though not necessarily a ratings smash, interestingly enough; more people seemed to snark about the film on Twitter than perhaps watched it). Naturally, then, there is now a sequel, which — after soliciting entries for a subtitle from fans via Twitter — Syfy and production company The Asylum have called, somewhat pedestrianly, Sharknado 2: The Second One. (A Sharknado 3 is also already in the works, set to debut in summer 2015, so Syfy is really going to ride this franchise until it jumps the shark, which may … Continue reading

The Last Ship Episode 2 recap: Who Let the Doc Out?

the last ship episode 2

If the first episode of Michael Bay’s The Last Ship was a picture-perfect Subway-commercial sub, the second episode was more like what you actually get at Subway: a lackluster sandwich made by a sullen teenager that still manages to taste better for you than most other fast food. • RELATED: The Last Ship premiere recap: “Is the Dog Dead Yet? “Welcome to Gitmo” failed to deliver on the drive of the first episode, seemed to lose the plot about halfway through, and then snapped itself back together in the last thirty seconds. I still have hope for the rest of … Continue reading
