SciFi (SyFy) Summer Nights…
As some of you may know (like those at redesighrelated.com) SciFi is giving themselves an overhaul! And starting after July 7th they will be “SyFy” and not SciFi. I tell you in advance – I will forget and write the wrong thing – my apologies!
But, besides the new name and nifty graphics! SciFi (SyFy) will be giving us something to do on those balmy summer nights when it’s just too darn hot to go outside. First, Eureka will be back staring July 10th (yes, they moved the show to Fridays). Second, Ghost Hunters International kicks off a new season on July 8th. THIRD, there is a new series called “Warehouse 13,” and finally – have I ever mentioned to you my bizarre love of SciFi (SyFy) movies? Oh yes. It is immense. And this summer, SciFi (~sigh~fi) will not fail! With Peta Wilson (you may remember her as Nikita ~Josephine~ the woman who did wrong and her punishment was to work for a secret organization posing in different roles in order to get the jobs done…) James Marsters (aka Spike), Rick Schroeder (not Ricky, from 24) and Jason Gedrick (Desperate Housewives – and… Iron Eagle…)
“Malibu Shark Attack,” starring Peta Wilson – An underwater earthquake generates a tsunami that strikes Malibu and brings a hunting pack of prehistoric-looking goblin sharks to the surface. Although the beach is evacuated before the big wave strikes, a group of lifeguards and a crew of construction workers are stranded in the high water and have to fight the sharks to get to dry land.
“High Plains Invaders,” starring James Marsters – In the early 20th century, a small western mining town is invaded by giant insectoid alien creatures whose only mission is to mine uranium to fuel their spaceship – but they’ll kill anyone or anything that gets in their way. After they devastate the town, it’s up to a retired outlaw to lead a small group of survivors in fighting thing “bugs.”
“Hellhounds,” directed by Rick Schroeder – After his bride is poisoned at their wedding, a young Greek warrior risks a journey to Hades to rescue her from the God of the Underworld and bring her back to life. What he doesn’t know is that the best friend who accompanies him is the man who killed her in a jealous rage.
“Sand Serpents,” starring Jason Gedrick – At an isolated Taliban outpost in Afghanistan, a small platoon of US soldiers faces a danger far greater than fanatical rebels – giant worm-like creatures that come up through the sand and devour everything in their path. Their inexperienced lieutenant has to lead them across the treacherous desert to a rendezvous point where an army helicopter will pick them up – but not all of them are going to make it.
