    1. so very true, it either ends up looking cheap, poorly written or it is just crap.... but they did have Z NATION this summer, it was so nice :)

  3. I think I will be watching a lot more SyFy channel this year. As David says, can't always rely on SyFy movies or series' to be awesome for more than one season, or even the entire season.

  6. That's a pretty good deal for The Royals. They must be pretty sure that the ratings will be good.

    I did watch SNOWPIERCER and it was brilliant. I didn't see that ending coming. But once revealed it made perfect sense given what came before. Wish there were more films like that out there.

    1. Dahlink, who wouldn't wanna watch Vincent Regan ruling over Elizabeth Hurley? :)

      Glad you liked it, dear, my next recommendation for you is THE GRAND SEDUCTION with Brendan Gleeson and TaylorKitch, such a lovely movie!

  7. Interesting trailer, Dezzy. No premiere yet, but Royals renewed? Spin sounds like a nice tale of woe.

    1. yep, some series get second seasons even before airing the first ones :) I remember SPARTACUS was one of them, but it rarely happens so much before. They probably wanted to use the sets.

  9. I started to think I missed The Rotaks when I first saw it was already renewed. Testing audiences must have liked it for them to jump the gun on a renewal so soon!

    1. and it's E! only scripted show, so it ain't difficult for them to spend some more money on it :)

    2. What the hell is Rotaks? Late night posting on my phone leads to some pretty interesting typos lol.
