Dark Matter Premieres On SyFy

Creator Joseph Mallozzi Shares A Few Last Minute Thoughts. Story by David Clark For those who do not know, the SyFy channel has made a commitment on going back to the stars. The days of Firefly , Star Trek , Stargate , and Battlestar Galactica seem like a distant memory and SyFy has decided the space epic drought has gone on long enough. Dark Matter, premiering Friday June 12th at 10/9c is the first of many shows SyFy has planned. Written by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie as an adaptation of their limited run Dark Matter comic book, Dark Matter is their 10 year vision brought to life. Most well known for their years writing and producing the Stargate universe, Mallozzi and Mullie had no idea how long the wait would be for Dark Matter to finally take a place on television programming. Revealed in an exclusive interview with Blastr, their original plan was to transition straight from Stargate into Dark Matter. Quickly they learned pitching a new and unknown int

TV Review: Gotham "Rogues' Gallery"

Read on to see what's going down in Gotham this week Gotham “Rogues' Gallery” Review by Brandon Wolfe It would appear that Gotham didn’t make any resolutions for the New Year. The show kicks off 2015 still plodding along as tepidly as it did during its dismal fall run, the same key problems remaining intact. If the show is going to blossom into something worthwhile during its first season, perhaps it’s saving that for the spring, that time of the year when all that is withered begins to bloom. That or it will continue to die on the vine. It could go either way. Displaced from the GCPD for his unwavering straight-arrow crusading, Gordon has landed in a menial gig as a security guard at the newly reopened (yet still dilapidated) Arkham Asylum, overseeing lavish inmate talent shows, the likes of which are almost certainly commonplace at institutions for treating the criminally insane. But because Gordon watching incarcerated felons perform dinner theater would threa

Browncoats rejoice: Firefly is returning to basic cable — and Nathan Fillion has something to say about it.

Top 10 Biggest TV Business Mistakes of the Decade

Top 10 Biggest TV Business Mistakes of the Decade 10 biggest mishaps in the television industry over the past decade. 10. Fox canceling "Family Guy" (and perhaps "Firefly" too) Axed TV shows usually stay dead, yet two titles canceled by former Fox chief Sandy Grushow in 2002 refused to go quietly. One was Seth MacFarlane's "Family Guy," which was moved around the schedule and was even put opposite top-rated hits "Survivor" and "Friends" before getting yanked. After the show's repeats got strong ratings on Adult Swim and netted big DVD sales, the comedy eventually made its way back to broadcast in 2005. "Family Guy" is now Fox's second-highest-rated scripted series and has produced a successful spinoff ("The Cleveland Show"). As for "Firefly," the show lived on as a theatrical movie ("Serenity") and to this day, no TV series cancellation inspires louder fanboy wails. 9. NBC hiring Ben
