I love BBC. Can I just say that? Even though I am an American, I stalk that channel like nobodies business. I haven’t gotten the chance lately, though, because of my long, crazy hours of work…but last night I caught some great up and coming stuff that peaked my interest.
If you are into the whole ‘virus’ changing the face of the world storyline, then Saturday (tonight) February 13th 8/7 central—BBC is starting a new series called Survivor. The time begins in our age, taking place after a viral disease wipes out most of the population. Funny how so many shows are harping on that lately…and then with our own concerns of Swine Flu, Biological Warfare, and so forth. Is someone trying to tell us something?
If viruses and survival isn’t your cup of tea, then BBC has other shows beginning first or new seasons, or reruns of Paranormal interest, such as Demons, Primeval, Being Human, Hex, Torchwood, Dr. Who, and many others. Yep, BBC is kickin’ some major butt concerning the Paranormal.
Now in the states and other places, STARZ has a kickin’ series that just started called Spartacus : Blood & Sand. I’ve been watching this every Friday night and love it. If you dig movies like 300—blood, battling, erotica romance—then you will probably love this show. We see the proper and not so proper side of Ancient Rome—the pits of the underworld, the life of a slave and how the upper class struggles to remain so. We see what its like to be a Gladiator, and to have the rich and powerful take everything away from you. And we see how far one will go to take it back.
Up and Coming movies I am VERY interested in— The Wolf Man (2010). Who is ready for this remake? I think its going to be awesome and why wouldn’t it with such a strong supporting cast? There is very little Anthony Hopkins does that leaves me disappointed.
For more Up & Coming Horror and Fantasy type film—I found this cool site. So Check it Out!
Let us know if you have watched any of these or do—and what YOU thought of them!
