Six Seeks Justice: Recap, Dark Matter, Episode 8

recap, dark matter, episode 8

The past of several Raza crew members comes into clearer focus in Episode 8, the best episode of the series so far, and we’re in the thick of it before the opening credits roll. Six is off the ship, hunting down the general responsible for the massacre of 10,000 civilians, and fatally shot – then disintegrates while the killers argue, as they needed him alive. Six is digging into his own past via Transfer Transit. He’s not dead, but his clone is. So Six sweet-talks the technician into sending him again without the mandatory 30 minute wait. Android is in sick bay, where … Continue reading

recap, Dark Matter, Syfy

What does the crew of the Raza need – besides money and their memories? How about a  couple of stowaways? A little time has passed since Episode 6. One makes another play for Two, showing up in her quarters to deliver a “status report” in which nothing has changed – the ship needs repairs, fuel and supplies. Two drops her towel to make him stammer, but again turns him down: “It’s complicated, remember?” Meanwhile, Five wakes from a dream about one of Six’s memories and the penny drops: Six mentions Maplethorpe and code – it must be for the vault. She … Continue reading

Interview: Steve Guttenberg talks about Syfy’s “Lavalantula”

Interview: Steve Guttenberg talks about Syfy's "Lavalantula"

Sharknado 3 may be the big buzzed-about Syfy movie premiere this week, but sharks aren’t the only scary creatures hitting that network’s airwaves. That other go-to standard for animal horror movies — spiders — also make an appearance with the debut of the original film Lavalantula on July 25. As you can tell from its name, the film — directed by apparent spider-movie expert Mike Mendez, who also helmed Big Ass Spider! — is about tarantulas that spit lava, naturally. “It’s based on a true story,” deadpans star Steve Guttenberg during our interview. “A volcano erupts in the Santa Monica Mountains, and … Continue reading
