We recently had an opportunity to sit down and chat with Canadian actor Ryan Robbins from the hit sci-fi series Sanctuary. Robbins may also be familiar to viewers for his featured roles on Battlestar Galactica, Caprica and the steampunk web series Riese.
Marcus Hearn’s new book, The Avengers: A Celebration is an extremely well detailed journey through the creation, heyday and eventual demise of the classic show, and a treat for those like me who haven’t seen the entire show, for avid fans who want to know the inside scoop, and for those interested in the inner workings of this interesting period of television history.
If you’re one of the many people who think Canadian TV is crappy, maybe it’s time you stop tuning in to Little Mosque on the Prairie and start watching SPACE network’s Todd and the Book of Pure Evil. This home-grown Canuck series finishes off tonight with an hour long bound to be epic season finale and believe us, this show is worth watching.
Prior to the season finale of Boardwalk Empire, HBO offered a 15 minute behind-the-scenes look at their new fantasy series Game of Thrones. The sprawling series is based on the Song of Ice and Fire novels by author and former TV scribe George R. R. Martin. Game of Thrones revolves around the medieval world of Westeros, a turbulent kingdom where the ruling houses vie for control of the coveted Iron Throne.
If you haven't been watching AMC's The Walking Dead this season, what have you been doing?! Since the season is only six episodes long, there's still time for you to catch up before tonight's presumably awesome finale.
HBO debuted our first real look at their new fantasy series Game of Thrones last night. Based on the novels of George R. R. Martin, the series revolves around the medieval world of Westeros, a turbulent kingdom where the ruling houses vie for control of the coveted Iron Throne. Thrones features an amazing cast sure to attract dork and non-dork audiences alike — including Sean Bean, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage and Aiden Gillen.
Our new TV Dork, Kathleen tackles Glee and tackles it hard. No show on TV can make me feel such an array of emotions with a single episode... Anger, embarrassment, disbelief, and nausea to name a few. Let me start off by saying, I get why people enjoy this show. It’s light and it’s fun, the characters are endearing, the musical numbers are interesting, and the guest stars are huge. That being said, this show makes me want to punch something.
We had a chance to see the first two episodes of the new Marvel animated series Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. The show has some big shoes to fill, but Marvel has learned from their missteps and enlisted some serious talents to help mold this show into something that can be held up with the other fantastic comic book-based animation. Marvel Studios has totally nailed it.
Last week's episode Stargate Universe provided a nice conclusion to the cliffhanger ending of season one, but also left many issues unresolved. Things are starting to get back to normal aboard the Destiny, or at least as close to normalcy as it can get on a ship lost on the other side of the universe.
We caught up with Stargate Universe actor David Blue at Fan Expo this year and were very pleased to discover that he more than lives up to his character's dorky reputation. Blue plays resident geek Eli Wallace on the sci-fi series, helping to save the Destiny with his genius and dropping delightfully nerdy references in a charming, yet slightly inept attempt to lighten the mood of his fellow space castaways.
Johnny Yong Bosch was one of the featured guests at this week’s Fan Expo Canada in Toronto. At two panels last Sunday he took questions from large crowds of fans about his career. Many current fans will know him as the voice of Ichigo in the English dubbed version of the anime Bleach, as well […]
Zack joins Jeff and Will for his first Dork Shelf Podcast. The first half of the show finds the three talking about Transformers games both old and new, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and the reasons they prefer certain consoles over others. After the break—and after Will and Zack have had a few—the three dorks switch their attention to film and television. They rant about Scott Pilgrim vs. The World having its world premiere in Montreal and they rave about HBO's Treme, despite the fact that its actually kind of boring. The group then proceeds to make fun of Will because he went to see the new Twilight movie and then happily discusses Cyrus and Toy Story 3.
