The Orville has their cloaking fields on full. No synopsis has been released for this episode. All we have is this promo, which could mean anything.
No new episode tonight. I wonder why Fox decided is rebroadcasting the Season 2 opener rather than a new one. Oh well, I may still watch it, if only to remember happier times.
3, 2, 1, First Contact.
Ed finds himself behind enemy lines when he crash-lands on a mysterious planet; Kelly questions why Gordon wants to take the command test.
A homeless, disillusioned teen named Marcus is recruited into Kings Dominion, a secret academy for the Deadly Arts, where he struggles to find his place among a community of the deadliest characters in the world...
I’ve already watched the pilot on YouTube, but still plan on watching it again tomorrow. So much to take in. It definitely warrants a second viewing. Anyone up for taking part in a Spoilerific Reaction Thread?
Season two of The Orville began with a healthy dose of Moclan culture and some festering emotional scars from season one. The third episode turns its focus on Alara, as she visits her home planet of Xelayah, with Ed and Gordon... as seen in last weeks promo.
The Orville returns to Fox this Sunday (12/30)... and then returns to its normal Thursday schedule. Not sure why Fox feels that football fans are the target audience for the show, but I’m damn glad it’s back.
There must not be anything new happening in the genre today. No Morning Spoilers on io9. I guess we’ll have to source our own.
While perusing YouTube, this evening, I came across an early Christmas present, the pilot episode of Deadly Class. So far, I like what I see.
Has anyone else been watching Nightflyers on Syfy? I wasn’t even aware that it started airing on December 2nd. There hasn’t been any mention of it on io9, even during morning spoilers. I realize that recaps would be too much to expect, but it feels like io9 is actively ignoring the series.
Ever have that feeling, that the system is out to get you? I’m am not sure what is happening, but io9 and other Gawker sites seem to think that I am not logged in. They also will not let me login with my mobile device. Oddly enough, I don’t seem to have any issue posting to the Observation Desk?
To paraphrase John Dewey, “We only think when we are confronted with a problem.”
Alliterator’s recent post, Fancasting the Fantastic Four started me thinking about how best to introduce the team to the existing MCU. Should they jump right in with a Fantastic Four film or maybe ease the characters into the franchise through references and cameos?
More Kinja weirdness. This post was supposed to be deleted, but that function doesn’t seem to be working.
It’s 9:00 pm. You know what to do.
Sony has let Peter out to play with the other kids in the MCU, but do we know all the strings are attached or how long it will be before playtime is over? This post is mainly speculation on my part, but since it contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.... a little warning before we continue.
As I tuned in for the season 6 premiere of Elementary, I was completely unaware that Brett Dalton would be guest starring in the episode. Once he appeared on screen though, I knew immediately, “that’s your killer.” Perhaps that’s guest star profiling on my part, but whenever I see Brett in a role, I immediately think…
Gravitonium, may be the key to saving the planet. A friend from Mack’s Academy days aides in the search, but also reveals an embarrassing secret from Mack’s past.
Avengers: Infinity War is less than a month away. The trailers promise an epic blockbuster, with the gang getting back together to fight a foe greater than themselves. What they seem to lack are answers to questions like why Scott Lang is under house arrest (in the Ant Man & Wasp trailer), rather than on the run or…
