Face Off Season 10 Finale preview

Face Off season 10 is coming to a close with tonight’s episode. Will Melissa, Walter or Rob take the title? As we saw last week, Rob’s screen test ended with him having to re-sculpt everything. Yes, everything. He’s freaking out & I really can’t blame him. Melissa has a medium amount of work – re-doing a chest piece & her victim makeup. Walter appears to be sitting pretty with some minor edits & additions. I think I’m putting my bets on Rob – he’s been consistently strong over the entire season. If he can rally & get a crap ton […]

In Syfy’s Hunters, Gale Anne Hurd wants to make aliens scary again — and she succeeds

Among her many feature film and television credits, Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) seems to return time and again to the sci-fi and horror genres, and especially to aliens. Hurd notably collaborated with James Cameron to bring to life the nightmarish alien queen of Aliens (1986), and she thinks it’s time to make aliens scary again. That’s part of her stated goal as an executive producer of Syfy’s new series Hunters. Inspired by Whitley Strieber’s novel Alien Hunter, the series, featuring Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), follows a highly classified government organization known as the Exo-Terrorism Unit, which tracks and fights […]

Face Off Season 10 Episode 12 recap: Skull Island

Face Off season 10 episode 12 sends the final 4 to Skull Island. It’s a cross-promotion for some new theme park at Universal Orlando. Whatever. What follows is an extended commercial for this new theme park – opening Summer 2016! So the actual challenge is to take a creature from Skull Island: Reign of Kong and imagine how that creature would evolve into an intelligent species. Mel is second-guessing herself. Again. She comments on how this is the worst time to be second-guessing herself. But Mel, you’ve been doing it THE ENTIRE SEASON! Why stop now?   Walter is freaking […]

Face Off Season 10 episode 11 recap: The Art of Warcraft

Face Off Season 10 episode 11 takes us to a very specific war – The World of Warcraft. Melissa and Walter are seriously excited since they’re avid gamers. They’ve got to take one of the video game’s characters & create a real-life version. We’ve got goblins (Yvonne), the Draenel (Walter), the Pandaren, the Tauren (Rob), trolls (Mel) and the Worgen (Melissa can’t get there fast enough). Melissa can hardly contain herself. Mel, Rob and Yvonne don’t know much about World of Warcraft, so they’re especially freaked out. We’ll see if having knowledge of the game actually helps or hurts the […]

Face Off Season 10 episode 10 has the artists selecting an eyeball to create a cyclops character. To complete the look of these characters, the show has arranged for 6-7 foot tall models. Mel’s gonna need a ladder to work on her model. (Actually, most of them could’ve used a ladder. Mel just got the most crap about it.) This is a focus challenge, so it’s only a 2 day challenge. They’ve got to sculpt & mold their faces today. In this episode, we learn about eyeforms – a sphere with some screws in it that the artists use to […]

Syfy’s “The Internet Ruined My Life” shows social media isn’t all LOLs

From nude pictures accidentally tweeted to the wrong people to bullying via hashtags and memes, social media can sometimes be a cruel and dangerous world. Syfy’s new half-hour series will chronicle some of the more extreme examples of this, from an innocent tweet that caused two traveling friends to be detained and suspected of terrorism, to a hashtag that unleashed death threats and a sniper outside a woman’s window, to a profile picture that got transformed into a hateful meme shared by hundreds of thousands. Each story will be told through first-person accounts, and is taken from the headlines. “With […]
