Ready For Love–NBC’s Bachelor-Times-Three!

Eek! It’s The Bachelor times three! The Dating Game with a dozen women competing to date each guy! Only with kibbutzing from the sidelines by three veteran matchmakers! At least they’re calling the 36 women who are split between the three guys on their BS… Could be snarky, savage fun…

If the reality show falters, it could still make a great premise for a satirical sitcom (12 Women for Ernesto) – or a deadly serious game show (The Desperate Dating Game?)!

For the first time, Canada’s film and television awards have come together under a single umbrella in the form of the Canadian Screen Awards. The show was hosted by Martin Short, whose Jimmy Glick and Ed Grimley characters took part in the awards presentation.

On the film side of the Screenies, War Witch – an 2013 Oscar® nominee for Best Foreign Language Film – dominated with ten wins including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress in a Leading Role, and Best Supporting Actor. James Cromwell was named Best Actor in a Leading Role for his role in Still Mine and Seema Biswas got the Best supporting Actress award for her role in Midnight’s Children.

For television, Best Comedy Series went to Less Than Kind, which soldiered on despite the loss of its lead actor, Maury Chaykin. Flashpoint, which has just completed its fifth and final season, took Best Dramatic Series and The Borgias nabbed Best International Drama.

A complete list of the winners follows the jump.

The X-Files Season 10 Coming! Yeah Baby!

X-Files Season 10 Comic

Now, I’m genuinely excited about something. Several months ago the folks at IDW announced The X-Files was returning to comics. That announcement seemed like this would be confused as all they said was that they were essentially reprinting old X-Files comics. Today they made it official, Chris Carter is overseeing an official Season 10 series.

Similar to how Joss Whedon handled Buffy and Angel. I hope this each “season” doesn’t go as long as Buffy and Angel did. First 15 issues of Buffy Season 8 was just as good as the TV show but then it seemed like the Twilight Arc would never end – same with Angel: After The Fall. Maybe Carter has his mojo back and fixes the mess he created in the later seasons.

In the opening story arc, “Believers,” readers will catch up with Dana Scully and Fox Mulder, living normal lives together under secret identities. However, a visit from an old friend threatens to rip them from suburban anonymity, as they learn that someone is preying upon everyone involved in THE X-FILES.  I want Charlie darn it!  Official press release is after the break.
