SANCTUARY - SHOW PATROL: 'Sanctuary' S3 finale: Edge goes 'Into the Black'

By Curt Wagner
June 20, 2011

If you thought the tsunami in the Season 2 finale left Dr. Helen Magnus and the Sanctuary team in a precarious position, wait until "Into the Black," the Season 3 finale airing at 9 p.m. June 20 on Syfy.

Magnus (Amanda Tapping) and the crew butt heads with the government about what to do with thousands of abnormals who leave Hollow Earth for the surface. As Will (Robin Dunne), Kate (Agam Darshi) and Biggie (Christopher Heyerdahl) try to calm a Praxian leader (played by WWE’s Edge), Magnus journies to Praxis to find out what is happening.

No spoilers here, but it leads us into an amazing cliffhanger going into Season 4, and another exclamation, “How are they going to get out of this one?!”


... Earlier this spring, Tapping and Dunne talked about working with Edge. Damian Kindler directed the episode, so you know that Dunne was in for a beating by the wrestler.

I had an entire day of just having the crap beaten out of me by him,” Dunne said. “He’s like throwing me around and punching me and clothes-lining me and all kinds of stuff...

GAME OF THRONES - NEW YORK MAGAZINE: Sean Bean on What’s Next for Game of Thrones

By: Jennifer Vineyard

In the space of one week, Sean Bean was beheaded and stabbed. Luckily for him, one of those traumas was fake — even if it did mean the shocking end of his character Ned Stark on Game of Thrones. (Well, shocking for those who hadn’t read the books.) Vulture talked to Bean about losing his head, fans losing their heads, and what he’s doing next. (His bar-fight wound, however, was strictly off limits...)


... New York Magazine: Do you think Ned’s death is akin to, say, Gandalf’s or Dumbledore’s? Wizardry aside, the father figure dies off so someone smaller can go on a hero’s journey? In this case, the Stark kids?

Sean Bean: "Yeah! You start with Ned Stark, Lord of Winterfell, who’s strong when he’s introduced and gets weaker and weaker as he goes along, physically and psychologically, because he’s in this corrupt environment, in this real den of snakes, which gets him in the end, and someone else is going to have to take his place. Once he’s imprisoned, for instance, his son Robb has to take control. Ned was very much needed, and he’s the last person you want to see disappear. He’s a voice of reason..."

TCM Video Featurette: Drive-In Double Features! Thursday Nights in June - Jun 23 Schedule

TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES CHANNEL VIDEO FEATURETTE: Drive-In Double Features! Thursday Nights in June 2011

Drive-In Double Features - Thursdays in June

It came from the drive-in! The al fresco movie theater, a rage of the 1950s and '60s, spawned a new type of film -- the creature feature aimed at Atomic Age teenagers. These youngsters found their own parked car a perfect place to fall into each other's arms while being scared silly by B-movie monsters, often representing the anxieties of the age, such as threats of nuclear war or science fun amok. What could be more nostalgic, or more fun, than reliving those warm summer nights of dreamy dates and dread-inducing double features?

TCM presents a summertime festival spotlighting some of the most sensational monsters to have graced those drive-in movie screens that once dotted the American landscape. No less than 15 of the films are TCM premieres, including four examples of the Golden Age of Japanese movie monsters. Godzilla, King of the Monsters (1956) is the Americanized version of the 1954 Japanese film Gijira, introducing the giant monster to U.S. audiences with re-dubbing and inserted scenes featuring Raymond Burr as a reporter who helps fight the menace. Also screening: Rodan (1957), Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster (1965) and Godzilla vs. Monster Zero (1970).

Other campy creatures making their TCM debuts include Tarantula (1955), a spider that grows to the size of large buildings; The Cyclops (1957), a one-eyed terror who's 25 feet tall; The Giant Behemoth (1959), a once-dormant dinosaur that rises from a polluted ocean emitting deadly radiation; and The Phantom from 10,000 Leagues (1955), another radioactive monster from the deep.

On the distaff side, we have Susan Cabot as The Wasp Woman (1959); Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958), starring Allison Hayes; and Queen of Outer Space (1958) which includes the great Zsa Zsa Gabor!

Airing Thursday, June 23, 2011:

8:00 PM It Came From Beneath the Sea (1955)

Breathtaking special effects highlight this sci-fi thriller. Huge octopus emerges from Pacific Ocean and wreaks havoc on San Francisco. First film made by the team of Ray Harryhausen and producer Charles H. Schneer.

Dir: Robert Gordon Cast: Kenneth Tobey, Faith Domergue, Donald Curtis, Ian Keith, Harry Lauter.

9:30 PM The Monster that Challenged the World (1957)

Above-average giant-bug-on-the- loose film is set in the Salton Sea, where colossal mollusks (like big caterpillars in snail shells) menace locals. Intelligent, low-key, with good monsters.

Dir: Arnold Laven Cast: Tim Holt, Audrey Dalton, Hans Conried, Casey Adams.

11:00 PM The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms (1953)

Prehistoric rhedosaurus wreaks havoc when thawed after an atom-bomb blast. Good Ray Harryhausen special effects, especially in amusement park finale. Suggested by the Ray Bradbury short story "The Fog Horn."

Dir: Eugène Lourié Cast: Paul Christian, Paula Raymond, Cecil Kellaway, Kenneth Tobey, Donald Woods, Lee Van Cleef, Ross Elliott.

12:30 AM The Giant Behemoth (1959)

Enormous radioactive dinosaur menaces England, finally invades London. Animation effects directed by Willis O'Brien are fine, but film is turgid.

Dir: Eugène Lourié Cast: Gene Evans, Andre Morell, John Turner, Leigh Madison, Jack MacGowran.

2:00 AM The Phantom From 10,000 Leagues (1955)

Oceanographer Taylor investigates deaths caused by a monster created by radiation from an undersea rock, which is now guarded by the creature. Lots of spy stuff and a lousy monster fail to enliven this deadly dull early American-International effort.

Dir: Earl Harper Cast: Kent Taylor, Kathy Downs, Michael Whalen, Rodney Bell, Phillip Pine, Vivi Janiss, Helene Stanton.

3:30 AM Creature From the Haunted Sea (1961)

A killer blames a legendary sea monster for his deeds and is surprised when the real beast shows up.
