I have seen the Supergirl pilot, and it’s terrible.

The Supergirl pilot found its way to the internet last week nearly a full 6 months before its intended air date. I’ll admit, I had high hopes. In an age of shaming, sexism, and the very loud complaints of a very vocal minority as pertains to male-driven hero movies, a show about a strong female hero is a logical, important, and maybe even necessary thing to do. Plus, Supergirl is a pretty great character, and other than 1984’s oddly entertaining but still terrible big screen release, she’s never been given the …

Cosmos/Star Trek Enterprise mashup

Sometimes, mash ups are too easy to make. That was the case for putting the theme for Star Trek Enterprise underneath the rebooted Cosmos opening credits. About a week ago, a few of us were out for pints, when my good friend Andrew mentioned that the two synced up perfectly.

Fan Expo 2012 – Tom Noonan

When we stopped by actor Tom Noonan’s table at Fan Expo, we weren’t expecting to get one of our favourite quotes from the whole event. That’s just what he delivered though, when we asked him his take on movie remakes, when he compares them to someone sleeping with your girlfriend, though he’s a bit more blunt about it…

Zune Music coming to Canada

Microsoft’s Zune Music services have always been a very US centric brand, with rumours that it would come to Canada swirling for a couple of years. The last we heard, it was originally going to show up here back in the spring of this year. While the Zune video marketplace has been available in Canada for some time, allowing users to rent and buy TV and film content via their PCs or Xbox 360s, the iTunes competitor has been bereft of, well… tunes, until now.

Smoke break with Lance Henriksen

Sometimes the best things at a convention are the most random. One of those moments was while Ryan and John were getting ready to go in after picking up their passes. It just so happened that it was the same time Lance Henriksen was out front taking a break from signing copies of his book and doing the convention guest thing.

Why aren’t you watching Breaking Bad?

Now over half way through its fourth season, it was announced that Breaking Bad will return for a fifth and final 16 episode season. If you’re not already watching what the fans call BrBa, I can’t recommend it highly enough, as it may be the single greatest piece of filmed entertainment ever.

Boxee Box gets another update, cements its position as the best HTSTB money can buy.

Much has been said of the Boxee Box, D-link’s fledgling foray into the world of home theatre set-top boxes, running the gamut from “streamlined” and “Polished” (agreed!) to “Disappointing” (…not so much). While it’s true that D-link’s little box has been lacking in some key areas (cough cough MUSIC PLAYER cough), when it comes to ease of use and across-the-board file compatibility, Boxee sits in a class that is simply untouchable by heavy hitters like GoogleTV, Roku, and especially AppleTV.
Now, after a scant 6 months, Boxee has widened that gap …
