If you were lucky enough to see the original Monsters Vs. Aliens animated movie a few years ago, then you are in for a treat when you check out the TV series. Some things have changed since then. There are new aliens, Insectosaurus is no longer with the team, and Ginormica/Susan Murphy can control her size. Dr. Cockroach (Chris O’Dowd), Susan (Riki Lindhome), The Link(Deidrich Bader), and B.O.B.(Eric Edelstein) are still living over at Area 50-something under the command of General W. R. Monger( Kevin Michael Richardson).
Since the invasion of Gallaxhar, some new aliens have shown up. Some evil, some cute, and some just confused. There is the evil Coverton (Jeff Bennett), whom will take any suggestion and find a way to use it to manipulate someone into working through his next nefarious plan. The adorably cute, and extremely intelligent Sqweep (Haley Tju), whose inventions are amazing but still pretty much designed by a child. A tiny pink, Asuran-like alien child. Also there is Sta’abi(Gillian Jacobs), a female alien warrior whose race is so proud that they get offended by just about anything. Sta-abi also has a pet, Vornicarn (Fred Tatasciore), and this critter loves to eat and eat. Read more...(429 words, 134 images, estimated 1:43 mins reading time)
If you watched some great syndicated shows during the late 1980s and early 90s, then you most likely did not miss seeing one of the best horror shows to hit prime time or late night TV on the weekends. Friday the 13th, which had nothing to do with Jason Voorhees, and was more in keeping with the true legend of Friday the 13th, really pushed the envelope back in the day, and the crew was able to produce some truly disturbing episodes in its run from 1987-1990.

If you were lucky enough to catch late night TV back in the early and mid 1990s, you most likely were caught up in one of the best syndicated shows that Canada had to offer. Based on an 80s film, Nick Knight, starring Aussie pop rocker and soap star, Rick Springfield, this small screen take far surpassed its film namesake in every way.
Take the original concept, move it further east and north, and bring not an Aussie to play the part of our frustrated vampire, but a Welshman (Geraint Wyn-Davies) instead. Keep the original partner cop from the first movie, Det. Don Schanke, played by the very flexible supporting actor from many 1980s teen films, from Sixteen Candles to Weird Science (John Kapelos). Another twist is now Nick’s best friend, a pathologist that knows Nick’s secrets, Dr. Jack Brittington (Robert Harper) is now just as brilliant, but far more pretty as Dr. Natalie Lambert (Catherine Disher).

Friday nights just got better with the new show from NBC called Grimm. Nick Burckhardt (David Giuntoli) and Hank Griffin (Russell Hornsby) are 2 detectives that have just been thrown into a world of the strange and unnatural, a world that has actually been there all along. A college girl has gone missing all in red and now a little girl as well and the two have to find out what has happened to her before it is too late. That is the basic run down of the pilot that looks to be a hit for NBC and one that I will be looking forward to seeing again. Read more...(383 words, 3 images, estimated 1:32 mins reading time)
