I first met Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens Director Anthony C. Ferrante at a SyFy channel event a few years ago. I didn’t know who he was, but Sharknado was the talk of Comic-Con that year. Everywhere I went people made jokes about it, even a lot of the celebrities that I talked to. The first film touched a cultural nerve, now 4 years later and the franchise is still going strong. The movie debuts on SyFy Channel this week (Sunday, July 31st)

Dark Matter’s first season cliffhanger left us hanging with the crew of the Raza being carted off by Galactic Authority as a result of being betrayed by Six.

The season two premiere (Welcome to Your New Home (this season the eps have titles!) begins with Two, Three and Four going through contamination as they enter a high security prison on an airless moon. Things can only get better from there, right?

There are a lot of parallels between Wynonna Earp and Buffy the Vampire Slayer – being the Chosen One/Heir, being a bit of a troublemaker, having a younger sister and, oh, yeah, being tasked with slaying evil supernatural entities.

The primary big differences are: not having Joss Whedon writing/producing her exploits; having a much smaller budget, and being more a Western in Purgatory rather than a High School is Hell scenario.

Hunters (Syfy, Mondays, 10/9C) is one of the most off-the-moment shows Syfy will ever do. Its tale of a secret government agency that hunts alien terrorists is dark, and gritty and genuinely creepy not to mention scary.
