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.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
