TFA Episode 15 – The One About Rory Being the Master

We always love a good conspiracy theory here  at TFA and this week we talk about a big one that is heating up the interwebs – could trusted companion, centurion, and Mr. Pond Rory Williams possibly be The Master and not know it (look up watch, fob)? We explore the question. Rita takes you in the deep, dark and brilliant world of HP Lovecraft in her Rita’s Reading Review. We give our top picks for Sci-Fi/Fantasy and Horror movies coming out this fall. Plus we give you the scoop on the Walking Dead, Amanda Tapping joining Supernatural and the future of Avatar 2, Indy 5 and a Mummy remake?

We wrap it up with our totally wicked Doctor Who segment where we talk about Matt  Smith setting the interwebs ablaze with his desire to have Hobbitt helmer Peter Jackson direct a Doctor Who episode (and Jackson admitting he is a Whovian) and we review both A Town Called Mercy and The Power of Three.

All that and more!

Shaun of the Dead meets The Walking Dead By Nathalie Caron, Source: Blastr.com

Everyone knows that zombies are the new vamps right now—even the BBC, which has just announced it’s also making a brand-new zombie drama series called In the Flesh that looks like it’ll mix some good ol’ Shaun of the Dead fun with some Walking Dead horror and drama.

The upcoming three-part, 90-minutes-each drama series will air on BBC Three, which also happens to be Being Human’s home — you know, the little show that has a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost living together? The one that also spawned a successful U.S. adaptation? You know what we’re talking about. Continue reading

What brought Walking Dead’s dead to life? New web series explains

How did the dead walk.. lets find out..by: Marc Bernardin, Source Blastr.com

Before AMC’s hit series launches into its second season on October 16th, we’re going to learn exactly what kicked off the zombie apocalypse—through the eyes of one particular zombie.

In Walking Dead’s pilot episode, “Days Gone Bye,” the good sheriff Rick Grimes stumbles out of a hospital to see a world ravaged by an unseen event that caused the dead to not stay dead. One of the first things he encounters is a legless zombie, slowly making her way from an unseen Point A to an indeterminate Point B.

A new six-part web series, directed and conceived by Walking Dead FX maestro and co-executive producer Greg Nicotero, will tell the story of this zombie—also known by her given name, Hannah—and through her, reveal the early days of the zombie-laden hell on Earth.

The web series will premiere on October 2nd. The nightmares will begin shortly thereafter.
