Syfy is treating us journalists with a couple of days of enjoyment and access to talent. Since I am far away from Toronto and could not attend, I sent some friends to act as correspondents for Seriesandtv: Danielle Barker, the star of Starvival, and Shannon Kook from DeGrassi among other stuff.
In the event, we are going to have access to Haven and Being Human cast and crew during dinner, while being able to visit the sets of Warehouse 13 and Defiance.
Luckily I am having the chance to have this humble site covering the event. And fortunately for us, folks at Syfy hooked us up with a storify app that will help us on our live coverage of the event. Continue reading
You know that Syfy Original Movies are all about guilty pleasures in form of TV movies, right?
As Sharktopus (movie I did a tweet-along and comments kept pouring like crazy), or Mega Python vs Gatoroid (with another tweet-along).
This time, there´s no genetic experiment gone wrong, but there is a scientist! So we know we are up for two hours of fun next Saturday!
Once the government pulled funding for his project, scientist Marcus Grange, seeks revenge by controlling the weather and causing devastation to any that stand in his way. When man controls mother nature, the world must weather the storm! (Now that´s a tagline, huh?) Tune-in to Storm War this Saturday at 9/8c on Syfy to watch if two brothers can stop their fathers evil reign from using weather weapons to destroy Washington D.C.
As you can see in the photo, even The Pentagon gets hit by this Storm War on Syfy. Will watch for sure this movie.
Syfy renews Haven for season three, and with this decision it is bringing back four originals, albeit Eureka for a final shortened season.
Syfy renewal order on Haven consists in thirteen episodes slated for early 2012 production, and to be aired in the second quarter.
The series has averaged two and a half million viewers, and those solid numbers helped the case in order for Haven to get renewed for third season. (These numbers are when DVR is added, though)
Syfy’s one-hour drama series Haven, starring Emily Rose (Jericho, Brothers and Sisters) is based on the novella The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King. The series follows the shrewd and confident FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose) who has a lost past, and arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine on a routine case. Before long, her natural curiosity lands her in the epicenter of activity in this curious enclave, which turns out to be a longtime refuge for people that are affected by a range of supernatural afflictions.
As the townspeople’s dormant abilities begin to express themselves, Audrey helps keep these forces at bay while discovering the many secrets of Haven — including one surrounding her own surprising connections to this extraordinary place.

This time it´s time for one of the few revived series: Merlin.
Merlin was cancelled by NBC on its first season, but moved to Syfy for seasons two and three where it thrived. And now, after season three averaged 12% more ratings than the second season, Syfy renewed Merlin for season four.
Although the show is quite healthy on BBC in England, and there was no doubt it would come back for another run in England, it´s always nice to see a good vehicle coming back, and this time Syfy renewing Merlin means we also get to see some more magical times and Arthurian imaginery on TV.
Especially since Camelot got cancelled by Starz in a controversial decision.
The story needs to keep going and probably evolving into an even more magical Merlin whose powers can be seen by Arthur as a true ally instead of a menace as Uther always thought magic would be. But that´s all speculation. So far, it´s good to know Merlin got renewed by Syfy for season four.

My friends from Syfy Germany visited the FedCon XX 2011 and met the stars from Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, Star Wars, Alien and many more and were kind enough as to share with me all the videos they´ve done in the original version in english and subs in German.
Some of the things you´ll get to see in these interview videos:
Find out what Garret Wang from Star Trek: Voyager would use a holodeck for and what he regrets most – of course, a woman is involved here.
Lance Henriksen from Alien and talked about the reasons for the success of the movies.
Robert Duncan McNeill thinks Star Trek gives a realistic outlook to the future.
And Stargate star Tony Amendola talked about his first punch into the face of Richard Dean Anderson.
And today we are posting a lot of news: As the other side of the coin for One Life to Live cancellation and All My Children getting cancelled also and CMT cancelled Working Class and Bravo cancelled Real Housewives of Washington DC, we get some good news too: Nickelodeon renews iCarly for season five and now Adult Swin renewed Eagleheart for season two. OWN renewed four shows Fox renewed Bob´s Burguers and HBO renewed The Ricky Gervais Show. But is that all? Not even close to being.
Tracy Morgan is on top of the world, The actor-comedian stars in 30 Rock and will return as host and executive producer for the 13-episode renewal order of Scare Tactics.
The hidden camera comedy show has been greenlit for a new season, bringing back more laughs. Not bad, not bad at all.
What do you think about Syfy renewing Scare Tactics for season five? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section. Syfy is a very good network and keeps proving it with good programming decisions as this one to renew Scare Tactics.

A good adaptation from a british good show, Syfy renews Being Human for second season, in its January 17 debut, Being Human made 2 million viewers to become Syfy’s most watched new scripted series winter premiere since Battlestar Galactica in 2005, and ever since then it has not slipped much averaging 1.8 million viewers. Taking that into account, and the fact that it has a 53% of female viewers, that makes it the most Syfy show watched by women, it turns this decision to renew Being Human by Syfy a no brainer.
This show is one of the succesful adaptations, more in the line as The Office than IT Crowd if we had to put exemplary cases.
Is Being Human british version better than US Version? Is it the other way around? That´s for you to speculate in the comments section.
So far, I can say that Being Human has been renewed for a second season by Syfy, and deservedly so.

Syfy renews Face Off for season two, and this means there will be a second make up artist who wins the prize.
Tonight is the season finale of Face Off, and just prior to that Syfy announced the renewal for a show that averaged 1,4 million viewers.
Syfy announced the renewal of Face Off via the official Twitter Account @syfy with an all happy message: Happy to announce that thanks to our awesome viewers we’re able to renew #FaceOff for another season Thanks to all who’ve been watching.
Face Off is a competition/elimination series exploring the world of special-effects make-up artists and the unlimited imagination that allows them to create amazing works of living art. The contestants are tasked with elaborate feature challenges including executing full body paint make up on models and creating their own horror villain. Not only will the show incorporate effects make-up, it will include a wide range of skill sets including prosthetics, 3-D design, sculpting, eye enhancers, casting and molding. Each episode involves incredible reveals of the competitors’ finished work, and the drama of one contestant being sent home by the panel of expert and celebrity judges. It all culminates in one winner and one grand prize that will launch a career.
To determine who emerges victorious, Syfy has signed three-time Academy Award winner Ve Neill (Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands) and Hollywood veterans Glenn Hetrick (Heroes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files) and Patrick Tatopoulos (Underworld, Independence Day, Resident Evil: Extinction) as Face Off’s judges.
