Summer time is almost here and you know what that means: lots of sitting on the couch in front of the boob tube (with a tall glass of lemonade) catching all of the cool new and returning shows that the networks are going to be putting out during the humid months! The outside is full of cancer causing sunshine and malicious bugs out to give you lyme disease…stay inside where its safe under the warm glow of the television. Now click onward to see which shows I will be setting my DVR to record this summer.
Z NATION, The new zombie drama from the folks at The Asylum (the minds behind the SHARKNADO franchise) that airs on SyFy premiered last Friday but I completely forgot about it. Since I love all things zombie and will give any zombie related program a shot, I watched the pilot episode and while it is no THE WALKING DEAD it does have its charms so I will give it a few more watches before making a final decision. There were a couple of things that really stood out to me about that first episode though.
Now I admit to getting sucked into the hype over SHARKNADO when it was first announced just based off the complete absurdity of the idea and I watched the movie when it premiered on Syfy but the movie was incredibly bad even by the Syfy channel original monster movie standards. Plus no one actually watched the movie despite SHARKNADO mania running wild all over Twitter.
So while it was bad enough that Syfy has aired the movie every week since it premiered but now they plan on having a limited run in actual movie theaters.
Regal Cinemas will host midnight shows of Sharknado on August 2 at roughly 200 theaters across the country, including New York City’s Regal Union Square Stadium 14 and L.A.’s Regal L.A. Live Stadium 14.
Yep, I said Sharknado…a film that is destined to go down in the annals of times as one of the greatest cinematic accomplishments of this century.
