TV by the Numbers

Quote
Felicia Day, star of web videos The Guild and Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, who also played “Vi” in the final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will portray a werewolf-hunting descendant of Little Red Riding Hood in the new Syfy Saturday Original Movie, Red.

Scheduled to premiere in 2011, Red is Syfy’s latest re-imagining of classic fairy tales, legends and pop culture characters. The new line of films launched with Beauty and the Beasts: A Dark Tale, which starred Estella Warren, on February 27.  Syfy, one of television’s most prolific producers of original movies, is also developing films around the stories of Aladdin, Sinbad the Sailor and Hansel & Gretel, among other projects.

In the action-packed Red, Red (Day) brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business – hunting werewolves.  He’s skeptical until bitten by a werewolf.  When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him.

I never saw her in Buffy, so I have no idea of Felicia's butt-kicking potential, but I will certainly be looking forward to this.

I'm a huge fan of Miss Day. OK, actually I'm a pretty moderate sized, even small fan, but anyhow I'll certainly watch. I kind of like the sound of the concept despite the networks miniscule budgets and terrible special effects. I'm hoping her signing on means the script doesn't totally suck.

ung, I don't know how to feel about this.  On the one hand I'd love to see her do more stuff, on the other I don't have much faith in SyFy movies.

Your crap probably has better writing and effects than Syfy's Satuday Original movies.

Yeah, they're just trying to cash in on Felicia's current popularity in their target audience.

That said, I don't think she'd agree to do something really, really crappy.

Who knows, could be a nice throwback to Buffy in movie form.

And she's complaining it's "super cold". Ha. It was 13C (around 55F) today in southern Ontario. That's above average for this time in March. It's still down around freezing at night though - maybe that's what she meant.

I wonder if she'll be wandering Toronto during off days.

Have you heard of that little fad known as "the internets"? I hear she's pretty popular there. 


There's Dr Horrible's Sing Along Blog with Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion (coming soon on Blu-Ray, BTW) and she also turned her WoW addiction into her own hit webseries The Guild which led to the August 2009 #1 hit (on AmazonMP3 and Itunes) Do You Want to Date My Avatar.  That should get you up to speed.

Sadly, not surprised. All the promos I had seen looked really poor. I recorded it, I'll probably at least watch a little of it.

sounds like this did well by Saturday night standards.  I'm just finishing up watching the recording and have to say it's pretty rough.  vampires bursting into flames when you kill them- oops, I mean werewolves bursting into flame when you kill them?

I couldn't force myself past the first werewolf transformation.  Syfy really needs to move away from effects laden B (or worse) shows.  Their A titles (BSG) have great effects, the rest just suck.  Twilight zone and outer limits did great with almost no effects at all, which is the direction the channel should be moving to for its secondary shows if its going to continue to dump all its money into a few shows at the expense of not having any for the rest.
