“I’d come back from shooting a pilot that will never see the light of day, and I kind of went into that place that we all did. ‘Will I ever work again? What’s that going to look like?'” Torres, 51, exclusively told Us Weekly, noting that it was when “everything was shutting down” due to the pandemic. “Then I got a call that Tim wanted to talk – and it was the best phone call of the year.”
Anthony Stewart Head has been cast in Let the Wrong One In, a co-production from Tailored Films and Workshed Films which recently completed filming in…
The past always has a nasty tendency of catching up with you. No matter how far or fast you run, it’ll always be right behind you. It’s even true for space cowboys. But for some, the sins of the past are far heavier to bear than for others.
This issue sees Mal and his crew fire the final salvo in their battle with Blue Sun. Pressure mounts as the corporation tries to wrestle control of the Sector (and Galaxy!) for itself. Now, Mal just can’t let happen. He’s especially motivated: the company has used his own likeness to forge their robotic law enforcement robots to bring him down. As usual, though luck or stupidity, Mal remains (mostly) one-step ahead throughout Blue Sun Rising No. 1.
BOOM! Studios have announced a new Firefly series which will be set 20 years after the original series. Firefly: A Brand New Verse will follow…
It all comes to a head here, in Firefly: Blue Sun Rising #1. The crew on Serenity has gotten in over their heads on more than one occasion, and this time is no exception.

Pak’s script perfectly nails the tone and characterization of Firefly. Mal is still cunning and willing to fight for what’s right, even when outnumbered. Kaylee is still the plucky mechanic, and Wash is still the sardonic pilot, Jayne is still Jayne. Fans who love the show will definitely get a kick out of this issue. Pak also balances the various tones that showed up in a Firefly episode: humorous bits (most of them with Jayne) and rather touching moments. There is a heartwrenching scene toward the end with Mal and his mother, and it nearly made me shed a tear.
Disney have confirmed that Ming Na Wen will return as Fennec Shand in upcoming Mandalorian spin off, The Book of Boba Fett. Ming Na Wen…
“Daddy, why are there wood boards over all the store windows?” my eight-year-old daughter Evan asked as our family walked our dog along Venice Boulevard. Two-and-a-half months into the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, the streets were quiet, as a curfew was in place. Stores all over Los Angeles were being boarded up after looting had followed a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest in nearby Santa Monica the day before.
Back when I first started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I could not resist the humor, drama, and the monsters. They so often dealt with universal issues with specificity. Now, stuck indoors in New York City as COVID-19 cases increase once again, there’s one particular episode that hits more deeply than in my original viewing. The sixth season episode “Normal Again” explores mental health amid our current isolation and disconnections.
