It’s that time of year again — Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week” is fast approaching, and recently, that’s also meant another Sharknado warning. “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” will be airing July 22 on Syfy Channel, but you can prepare yourself ahead of time with help from the guys at RiffTrax.
This week, Aaron Ashmore (Warehouse 13, Smallville) chats with Summer about one of Syfy Channel’s newest space adventure series, Killjoys. Aaron plays John Jaqobis, one of a team of galactic bounty hunters, pursuing fugitives (called Warrants) throughout the Quad, a planetary system on the brink of a bloody class war. His character is a tough fighter but a peacemaker at heart, and in a pinch he can fix, fly or build just about anything.
While SpaceX is not affiliated with any commercial Hyperloop companies, it is taking a more direct approach to speeding up the process with the announcement of their plans to build a 1 mile long Hyperloop test track next to its headquarters and that it’s holding a competition next year to test Hyperloop pods.
Roger Cross has been on so many genre and procedural shows that each time he pops up onscreen, most people say, “Oh yeah, I’ve seen him before!” Scifi fans will recognize him recently from his roles in Continuum, The Strain, and Arrow, and his previous roles in Syfy Channel’s First Wave, and the miniseries Taken.
Roger talks with Summer about his new show on Syfy, Dark Matter. This story, based on a graphic novel written by Stargate‘s Joe Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, focuses on 6 people who wake up from stasis on a derelict spaceship, with no memory of who they are or how they got there, and their journey to find out who they really are, and what to do about their pasts.
This week, actor turned writer/director David Hewlett (Stargate: Atlantis) chats with Summer about his latest indie scifi-thriller Debug, which stars Jason Momoa, Jeananne Goossen, Adam Butcher, and Adrian Holmes.
David talks about how increasing a movie’s budget can often result in changes in creative control, and how the compromises start stacking up, and what happens when the film you get isn’t the film you thought you’d get.
