TV Wasteland: Cylons and Superspies by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(January 03, 2010)
It's fitting that Chuck has come to resemble its plucky title character so much. The show has hovered on the edge of the NBC renewal bubble almost since it premiered: dogged by the threat of cancellation, yet somehow emerging intact when even its most arde

(December 28, 2009)

TV Wasteland: Christmas time is Here, By Golly! by Rob Vaux, Columnist

TV Wasteland: Who's Better, Who's Best by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(December 14, 2009)
I was never a huge Dr. Who fan, but I tuned in avidly when they announced that Christopher Eccleston would be reprising the title role. And he didn't disappoint, capturing the character's wit, enthusiasm and secret pain with unforgettable grace.

(December 07, 2009)

TV Wasteland: Standing on the Fringes by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(December 06, 2009)

TV Wasteland: Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(November 29, 2009)
December begins with the much-hyped Alice miniseries on Syfy, promising an "all new" take on the Alice in Wonderland tale. Lewis Carroll's surreal masterpiece has already undergone enough permutations to render any claims of originality irrelevant, and wit

TV Wasteland: Thanksgiving Leftovers by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(November 23, 2009)
Thanksgiving Day means a truncated week for genre programming, as movies and holiday specials serve as filler in the place of regular programming. The pause gives us an opportunity to evaluate the various sci-fi, fantasy and horror shows out there, and to

(November 16, 2009)
Farscape was one of the first original series to air on the Sci-Fi Channel (now known as SyFy) in 1999. The adventures of John Crichton lasted four seasons and tantalized the imagination. Combining the finer aspects of Star Trek, Star Wars and Buck Rogers,

TV Wasteland: Death and the Hynerian by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(November 16, 2009)

TV Wasteland: The Prisoner Arrives by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(November 09, 2009)
Before we begin, I want to mention that Sesame Street turns 40 on November 10th. Massive props to Big Bird and the gang for teaching us all about letters and numbers.

TV Wasteland: Vivacious Visitors Eviscerate Very Viciously by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(November 01, 2009)
The original V occupies a strange place in pop culture, a sort of camp-but-not-really 1980s standout fondly remembered by those who first saw it and all but forgotten by everyone else. It remains a product of its time (right down to the haircuts and jerky

TV Wasteland: Cthulhurendous by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(October 11, 2009)
Every time another H.P. Lovecraft adaptation is released, the collective fanbase suppresses a groan. The renowned horror author may have changed the face of the genre, but his work always struggled to assert itself onscreen.

TV Wasteland: Sanctuary Returns by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(October 05, 2009)
A show like Sanctuary isn't supposed to linger. It started out on the web--part of an effort to make Internet content commercially viable, which the established networks tend to ignore as a matter of course. Granted, it had the backing of the Stargate crew

TV Wasteland: The Gate Keeps Going by Rob Vaux, Columnist
(September 28, 2009)
