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)
Haven is a small little town with big problems even though everyone tries to ignore them. The town has a deep dark secret that they are trying to forget and it is up to the 3 main characters to deal with them and try to figure them out. At the end of last season we saw that Audrey Parker wasn’t even the real Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) but actually someone from the towns past but she has no memory of that time. Now there are 2 Audreys and we all want to know what is going to happen with them. The other 2 main characters are that of Duke Crocker and Nathan Wuornos. Nathan (Lucas Bryant) is a town cop as well as Audrey’s partner is trying to solve all of the towns mysteries. Since his fathers explosive passing he is now pretty mush running the police station and wondering what he is going to do with himself now. Duke (Eric Balfour) is now running a tavern/bar as well as smuggling at times and wondering how it is that he got into the mess to begin with. If it hadn’t been for Audrey he wouldn’t care about what was going on at all. She and Nathan seem to be turning him into a person that actually cares about the town and others.

What do you get when you take 2 1980’s pop artists and give them a movie to make? You get the ever chunky and screwed up film called Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. Why in the world would you have a red carpet event for this film. There are worse films out there that would deserve the honor more then this one. The film started like a normal film and then steadily when down hill for there. You have a crazy environmentalist Nikki played by Deborah Gibson and a park ranger played by Tiffany, that is rather unbalanced with a gun. The dumb blond, I hate to say it that way, of an environmentalist steals snakes and dumps them in the everglades thing that they will be better off there. I don’t think these were your normal snakes as they are able to take down full sized gators, and that is before the crazy redhead gives the whole ecosystem a shot of adrenalin.
