I don’t think they could have repulsed me more with a tractor beam. The trailer fails to tell any kind of story, falls into the prequel trap of having tech that looks newer than the stuff Starfleet had ten years later, and the “Klingons” look like ocean-faring Gorn. I might still watch the first episode out of curiosity when it airs in the fall, or I might just play ‘Mass Effect: Andromeda’. It’s a better ‘Star Trek’ than anything else being made these days.

One thing I don’t think I ever realized is that the man who played Bruce Wayne’s manservant Alfred Pennyworth in the 90’s Batman films was a Hammer Films star. Michael Gough made many films for the legendary British horror studio, including ‘Dracula’ in 1958 as Arthur Holmwood, alongside Christopher Lee in the title role. He made a very dignified Alfred, and you can hear the sarcasm dripping from his voice in this commercial, as he hawks some Diet Coke. You can click on the post to watch the video.Read more

You’d expect a TV series to deviate from a novella and movie, fill things out and whatnot, but this series from Spike TV really seems to be doing its own thing with King’s ‘The Mist’. You can click on the post to see the trailer.Read more
