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.

#TombRaider Official Trailer

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.



Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her Dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t b…

COOK-OFF! Trailer Starring Melissa McCarthy

Reality-show shenanigans mix with the true-life fiery-and-fierce world of competitive baking in the deliciously sly mockumentary COOK-OFF! As a buffet of quirky contestants prepare for the renowned Van Rookle Farms Cooking Contest, the heat is on to win a one million-dollar prize. The filmmakers follow them as the foodie media and celebrity judges descend on a hotel convention area to see which contestants rise, which ones fall, who will reveal their true nature, and who will find love with the contest’s costumed Muffin Man mascot.



Costarring a cast of improv geniuses including Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Gary Anthony Williams, and Sam Pancake, the zesty COOK-OFF! is an affectionate nod to ordinary Americans who believe they’re one dollop of spray cheese away from achieving their dreams.
