For the first time I’m attending the SyFy Digital Press Tour as it lands in Toronto, and based on the dinner alone tonight at C5 restaurant inside the Royal Ontario Museum, it’s a fantastic event for folks like me who love genre television.
Wizard World Toronto Comic Con brought fans together over the weekend at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for two days of costumes, comic books, collectibles, and a chance to get up close and personal with a few stars, including the cast of the North American edition of Being Human, Jeri Ryan, Quantum Leap stars Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell, and Daniel Logan.
Montreal’s Muse Entertainment announced last week that two of their productions have been renewed for new seasons, with Global Television ordering a 12-episode second season of Bomb Girls, while Syfy in the U.S. has ordered a third season of the North American adaptation of Britain’s Being Human.
The GATE and BBCCanadaShop.com are in a festive mood this month and we’re giving away a deluxe prize pack that’s filled with some of the best shows and goodies from the BBC, including Blu-rays, DVDs, and lots more.
The folks at Space have been very, very good to me. They send me screeners for a lot of shows I might never get a chance to watch otherwise, and they’ve let me interview the cast of Stargate Universe and Todd and the Book of Pure Evil, not to mention the opportunity to chat with Ryan Robbins and Robin Dunne from Sanctuary. But, cheesy as it is, the best thing about Space to me is the fact that they pick up a lot of very, very cool shows, and they love promoting them to the fans.
