TV Review: #WYNONNAEARP A Helluva Joyride!

RAMA's Back and this time with a TV Review.

A helluva joyride!

Syfy new series, WYNONNA EARP is one helluva joyride. Keep in mind that this review is based solely on the first two episodes I recently screened at its premiere at WonderCon. But not since Sarah Michelle Gellar played Buffy Summers has an actress looked so sexy and badass slaying villains on TV like Melanie Scrofano playing Wynonna Earp. Part western, part sci-fi, this show’s action and its tone excite us fans of “Firefly” and “Supernatural.”

Melanie Scrofano plays Wyatt Earp’s great granddaughter who battles demons and other creatures, many of whom are criminals from Wyatt's past who are now back for some retribution. With her unique abilities and with the help of her sister Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) and agent Dolls (Shamier Anderson), Wynonna is ultimately the one to bring the paranormal to justice.

Based on Beau Smith’s comic books which I admit I haven’t read yet, but after having watched two episodes of this series, I understand its appeal and that’s partly because there’s something about this character, Wynonna Earp that we can relate to, at least for those of us who are still wondering what our purpose is in life and when it falls on our lap, it may not necessarily be what what we want. She’s a bit cynical, she’s definitely what you’d consider a reluctant hero, and she carries this coveted demon-killing gun. Melanie Scrofano is perfect in this role, her beauty is not intimidating but her attitude is and that makes her seem very convincing as a small town girl who kicks butt from time to time. Another appeal is Tim Rozon’s performance as the legendary Doc Holliday. This is a tough character to crack because his reputation precedes him, and everybody loves Val Kilmer’s version in “Tombstone” but I think you’ll find Rozon’s interpretation equally charismatic and irresistible.

The pilot and the second episode pretty much set up the story of recruiting Wynonna Earp into becoming this unlikely lawgirl who handles cases that, well, let’s just say they’re above the local sheriff’s field of expertise. And so the show is going to be a bit procedural but I feel that there is this one personal vendetta that’s going to be the connecting thread or the strong motivator that drives the story forward throughout this season. Great supporting cast, impressive production design, really cool costumes as well, much credit to showrunner Emily Andras and her entire crew. I can’t wait to hopefully see different kinds of demons that Wynonna has to face, each presents its own unique challenge, I hope. And there are plenty of secrets and mysteries in these two episodes that will get the audience hooked and leave them wanting more, I know I am.

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends…
