TV Wasteland: The Hollow Crown by Rob Vaux, Writer
(September 16, 2013)
It’s a fairly busy week, and the series finale of Dexter certainly seems to call out for notice. The show was a solid hit, and going out on the top of its game is worth noting in and of itself. I’d like to focus on something else, however, which might

(September 02, 2013)
Today, at long last, the journey of the Planetary Express crew comes to an end. Futurama started out on Fox as an attempt to cash in on co-creator Matt Groening’s phenomenally successful The Simpsons. As Fox is wont to do, they bounced it the schedule li

TV Wasteland: Another Bloody End by Rob Vaux, Writer
(August 12, 2013)
True Blood ends its sixth season this week, with the promise of more to come. This has been a fairly good year for it: rebounding ever a couple of lackluster seasons and delivering on some of the more intriguing premises it toyed with over the years. It

TV Wasteland: The White Queen by Rob Vaux, Writer
(August 05, 2013)

TV Wasteland: Another Farewell for Richard Matheson by Rob Vaux, Writer
(July 01, 2013)
It’s the week of July 4th, and you know what that means: Syfy continues its marvelous tradition of running The Twilight Zone all day. This year is particularly poignant because it marks the recent death of Richard Matheson who, after Rod Serling himself,

TV Wasteland: Under the Dome by Rob Vaux, Writer

TV Wasteland: Open up the Warehouse by Rob Vaux, Writer
(April 29, 2013)
Warehouse 13 is back! And more importantly, it’s also showing no signs of flagging. Starting out as a lighter, fluffier variation on The X-Files, it quickly found its own rhythm and now acts as a marvelous tonic to the more self-serious sci-fi shows out

TV Wasteland: Defiance Rises by Rob Vaux, Writer
(April 15, 2013)
I tend a laugh at Syfy a lot – any network that produces titles like Sharktopus deserves some serious ribbing – but in the midst of that, they have produced some well-regarded original series. The likes of Warehouse 13, Being Human and of course BSG le
