Season three picks up from the adrenaline-fueled action of season two, which raised the stakes for the brilliant scientist Dr. Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) and her team, who use their unique combination of instinct, medicine and cutting-edge science and technology to find and aid a clandestine population of beings that the world refuses to believe exist. In season three, the team will face a host of new and daunting abnormals, embark on adventures with both new and familiar faces and unravel some of the secrets woven through the Sanctuary’s rich past.

On Eureka, Global Dynamics staffer Dr. Noah Drummer (Chris Parnell/Saturday Night Live) nearly absconds with a volatile experiment. The halls get seriously decked when Dr. Drummer’s unstable hydrogen crystal starts to grow at a frightening rate.

It’s always good to see Robert Picardo on a regular basis.

2. Electron - August 18, 2010

“Sharktopus”. How original. What’s next, “Monsterpus”

3. danny - August 18, 2010

Ahem … Firefly?

4. Vultan - August 18, 2010

Ed Wood would be proud.

5. Vultan - August 18, 2010

“Peek-a-boo” — A SyFy Original Movie! When an unemployed nuclear scientist plays a black magic version of peek-a-boo with his two-year-old son, all hell breaks loose on the peaceful village of Sunnyville as the mutated child possessed with the reincarnated spirits of Heinrich Himmler and Captain Kangaroo wrecks havoc in a hail of flaming ping-pong balls while in a desperate search for his lost binky.

This fall on SyFy!

6. StalwartUK - August 18, 2010

7. The Geek that Gets Laid Often - August 18, 2010

Maggotron – When science expert Colt Balderson attempts to repair his aging Walkman using genetically altered, bio-luminescent, 1/4 cybernetic maggots cursed by a Gypsy prostitute on the grounds of the Buchenwald concentration camp with the help of Vincent Price’s undead Turkish bootleg film director lover, things go slightly awry and flesh gets sucked off of bone in this Syfy original directed by the Octomom.

Also starring Michael Ironside as Vercingetorix and Lou Diamond Phillips as Vercingetorix’s moped.

Okay, you win. That was way funnier than mine! :D

9. The Geek that Gets Laid Often - August 18, 2010

#8. It isn’t a competition. I laughed out loud at yours and it inspired me, héhé.

10. Capt Mike of the Terran Empire - August 18, 2010

Ok. Scify is realy tring to bring in the Ratings. I guess that is why they are bringing a non scifi program like WWE Smackdown. Yes it will bring in the ratings and im sure Scyfi will do a lot of promoting of there shows. So I gues im ok with that. I like some of the things they have coming up. Stargateunivers and Where House 13.

11. Vultan - August 18, 2010

#9

Oh, thanks! I almost fell out of my chair while reading yours. I wonder if those hacks at SyFy are reading…

12. Losira - August 18, 2010

# 5,7,9. You made. My nite thanks! But everything is true! Let’s have their good shows + all the trek series like in syfy Austrailia! Put the. Wrestling on sports. South or start a wrestling channel 24/7 so everyone wins!

13. Phil - August 18, 2010

14. Driver - August 18, 2010

“Attack of the Giant Crawfish in 3D!”

Giant mutated crawfish caused by the BP oil spill wreak havoc on a small Cajun town near the Gulf of Mexico. Tearing a path of destruction to New Orleans, blacks and whites unite to lure the stupid creatures downtown and create a Jumbo Gumbo pot out of the Superdome and make Crawfish Etouffe for the entire city.

15. Losira - August 18, 2010

#13 EXCELLANT! I’m laughing again! Good job maybe it could syfy from bad movies

16. starfall42 - August 18, 2010

Sharktopus? I guess Mega Shark and Giant Octopus really were getting friendly.

17. Losira - August 18, 2010

The good side however is the Eureka and warehouse 13 Christmas specials. What a great ideam a wonderful celebration. To bad a xmas Sanctuary special could be done. Bet it could enchanting.

18. CaptainDonovin - August 18, 2010

Didn’t know Picardo was in DS9. Must have ment to say Stargate Atlantis. I’ll be missing most of these movies, though I may watch Sharktopus just for the bad FX.

Love Haven, WH 13, Eureka, Fact Or Faked, Sanctury & GH though.

19. The Bear - August 18, 2010

Oh Jeez…… SyFi movies = Epic Fail.

20. DavidFuchs - August 18, 2010

@18

It is funny they rate one appearance of DS9 over his work on Atlantis, but go figure.

21. CarlG - August 18, 2010

Fun fact: SyFy headquarters is run off generators powered by the rapidly spinning corpses of Arthur C Clarke and Isaac Asimov…

22. Red Dead Ryan - August 18, 2010

Robert Picardo was the gym teacher on “The Wonder Years”. He also guest starred on an episode of “Home Improvement”.

23. Phil - August 18, 2010

Hey, the check didn’t bounce, right??

24. Sebastian - August 18, 2010

How can the network that gave us the brilliantly reimagined “Dune” and “Battlestar Galactica” series cook up such wretched, hard-to-swallow crap like “Monsterwolf” “Sharktopus” “Manticore” and “Raptor Island??”

These movies would have to reach up on tiptoes to scratch the leathery, crusty underbelly of most 1970s’ Drive-In/Grindhouse fare. And the sad part? They actually manage to get nice actors like Robert Picardo and John Rhys-Davies (fresh off the Lord of the Rings trilogy!).

Go figure.

And #21?

That was both hilarious and absolutely right on! ; )

25. Jeff - August 18, 2010

An original movie coming this fall the Syfy: THE REVENGE OF ALF.

A washed-up middle-aged bioscience lab tech accidentally is contaminated with the spores of a newly self-aware parasite. When he cuddles his favorite stuffed animal late that night, the spores find a friendly, unwashed, host and begin to multiply…bringing the stuffed animal to life! It walks, it talks, it insults everyone it sees – ALF is back, and this time he’s MAD.

26. Spectre_7 - August 18, 2010

WTF WWE smackdown on syfy? well pro wrestling might as well be science fiction anyways…

but good luck with that, neighbors!

My Space channel in Canada will remain WWE-FREE

27. 4 8 15 16 23 42 - August 19, 2010

I can’t wait for “Drugula vs. Monsterbation”, “Attack of the Loch Ness Yeti” & “Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death ” … oh wait, that last one is an actual movie….

28. Basement Blogger - August 19, 2010

Come on guys, “Monsterwolf” doesn’t look “Eegah” bad. I mean look at Leonor Varela. She’s hot. And I have no idea who she is. The trailer looks interesting. Maybe with its Native American plotline, we might get a cameo from Chakotay. Maybe Monsterwolf is Neelix’s spirit-animal guide. Okay, there’s a chance it’s going to be craptastic. But nowhere near the mark set by “Sharktopus.”

I reiiterate this possible plot point for “Sharktopus.” Trailer below. Everybody is going to guess that Eric Roberts’ character is going to meet his death at the hands of his creation, the Sharktopus. I say no way, judging from the trailer. Sharktopus likes to eat girls in bikinis, not ham!

http://berniebasementblog.blogspot.com/2010/08/sharktopus-debuts-sept-25.html

29. I'm Dead Jim! - August 19, 2010

When did Eric Roberts sink to the depths of Sharktopus?

30. Paulaner - August 19, 2010

No one complaining about lens flares? :)

31. Lore - August 19, 2010

And these are the guys (SY FY Network) you people want to put in charge of a new Trek serie with Capt Pike?

32. Capt Mike of the Terran Empire - August 19, 2010

Cloverfield Vs GodZilla Vs KingKong with Special Guest Referee the Raptor. Only on the Scify Channel at 9pm right after WWE Smackdown.

33. Losira - August 19, 2010

My son in Law solved the syfy problem! Installed global satilite tv software on his PC. So we also can get The Space Channel it is good real scifi…note the spelling. And folks its completely legal only a one shot 45 dollar fee. Can get 4cifi sister channels very cool! 1600 global channels! Great scifi and no wrestling!

34. Frederick - August 19, 2010

Mandrake=From Hell It Came. Probably not as good, though…

35. Dr. Image - August 19, 2010

What a bunch of crap. And they cancelled MST3K for more of this??

36. skyjedi - August 19, 2010

Fake Wrestling is not science fiction.

37. Capt Mike of the Terran Empire - August 19, 2010

The reason Scify is bringing in the WWE is because it does not realy cost them anything and it will get them ratings.so they can do there Monster Movies that realy suck. I would rather Scyfy do some Godzilla Movies or something. But what they should do is bring back Battlestar Galactica but set in the first Cylon War and do some more Star Gate Movies and maybe bring back Firefly and try and come up with some more orignal programing. Maybe a new Superhero show.

38. TonyD - August 19, 2010

What a lineup of absolute garbage. I particularly love how they try to sell the pro wrestling show: “The ultimate in imagination-based sports entertainment”.

You’d think this network would entertain the idea of adapting one – JUST ONE!!! – classic science fiction novel every once in a while, if only to actually try and justify its moniker.

39. Daoud - August 19, 2010

@10, 37. If you think about it, fake wrestling is another form of science fiction and fantasy (don’t forget SyFy can also stand for Science FantasY.)

In fake wrestling, they pretend to manipulate the laws of physics and especially human physiology, pretend they can do things that the human body can’t really do via pantomime, and then create imagined human reactions to all the situations. Very much science fiction.

Now, if they pretend some of the wrestlers have super-powers…. they are wearing the outfits already….

I mean who knows! They might even branch into politics and have one of their characters elected the U.S. Senate! 8-O

40. Captain Dunsel - August 19, 2010

#3, we have the same thought. Every time I see a new promo for Mansquito, Sharkasaurus or DinoMonster, I think to myself “they recycle this endless bile, and we can’t get season 2 of quality shows like Firefly?”

Sci Fi, you know what to do, if you want to astound us with joy. Serenity Now!

41. Capt Mike of the Terran Empire - August 19, 2010

#39. You are right. I mean. They have the Undertaker who can turn the lights out with his Arms lowering. They have Kane who can make Fire with his arms. I think at one point they had a guy called the Boogie man who ate worms. The even had a guy called the Hurricane who had a alterego who was a reporter. I do miss the old days when you had these guys at least pretend it was real.

42. Capt Mike of the Terran Empire - August 19, 2010

Oh yes. Linda Mccman for Senater. Not as crazy as a Wrestler as Gov of Minnisota or an Actor as Gov of Ca.

43. Woulfe - August 19, 2010

SyFy presents – Mansquito Vs Sarktopus Vs Pyton Vs Boa Vs King Cobra Vs Giant Alligator Vs Ice Spiders Vs Yeti Vs Sasquatch Vs Mut-ant Vs Viewers who hate this sort of garbage….. This fall on SyFy !

Starring – Mike J Nelson, Joel Robertson, Mary Jo Phel, Frank Conniff, and a cast of millions, all who riff the heck out of SyFy’s made for Cable Films…

Riff-Raff Drive-In Theater 9001, it’s over 9000 !

44. Phil - August 19, 2010

“Invaders from Uranus”…..to crass?

45. Captain Dunsel - August 19, 2010

@2. Electron – “Sharktopus”. How original. What’s next, “Monsterpus”

No, its going to be a Bond crossover – SharktoPussy.

(BTW, *not* the same Cap’n as #40, though I agree with him/her/it)

46. Losira - August 19, 2010

#44 I think its spelled Ur-anus! But again spelling is not my fortay. But you have to step in an realy keep me laughing!! Great job people! I may have to change my clothes! Either get some dcent scifi like trek,firefly,BSG, babylon 5, etc back on you will be renamed Ur-anus channel for your crap that keeps coming out of. Ur-anus

47. Losira - August 19, 2010

Imagine greater…HOW?

48. Losira - August 19, 2010

I would suggest that everyone should send their syfy stories to those bozos. As a sediment how we feel about their suctipuss or shark to whatus that BP spill mutant. Or what ever. The trouble is they will realy make movies out of these paradies and you will get screwed out your royalties. Copy right! But again they need all the help they can get

49. 4 8 15 16 23 42 - August 19, 2010

I’ve been finding myself referring to SyFy as “Skeevy”… methinks it is more and more appropriate….

50. Big Bill Cox - August 19, 2010

And to think, back in 1992 when the Sci Fi Channel was just starting out, Gene Roddenberry and Isaac Asimov were network advisors. How low this channel has sunk.

And #35 – I totally agree. They should never have cancelled MST3K, but that was one of the first things Bonnie Hammer did when she took over the network. I think her exact words were “I can’t wait to get rid of that damn puppet show”.

51. Woulfe - August 20, 2010

^ Let’s get rid of the “Puppet” show & replace it with something that might as well be “Puppets” low-quality CGI camp movies that the former “Puppet” show would make fun of if it was still on SyFy….

I think the real reason they pulled MST3K’s plug is that sooner or later they’d have to make fun of the “Films” SyFy was making for $12.95 a pop.

I mean really, it was bound to happen at the rate SyFy was going while MST3K was on their network, and before the name change even.

52. trynda1701 - August 20, 2010

@ 50

Bill

It’s sad that both Mr Roddenberry and Mr Asimov passed away in the year before the channel premeired. I wonder how it would have turned out if they had both lived longer?

But in these cynical times, perhaps nothing much would have changed!

53. CarlG - August 20, 2010

@47: “imagine Greater”?

I can, very easily….

54. Douglas - August 21, 2010

@2 Electron: that title Monsterpus is hysterically funny!! I couldn’t get that title out of my head while I was at my desk at my job this week. I was working on this assignment that I hate as my crazy and brutal boss walks in. I was still thinking Monsterpus when I looked up and saw him staring at me. I had to bite my lip so hard to keep from laughing that I started to bleed. He said, “What’s wrong?”. I said, “I need a break”. I went outside the building, where the smokers are banished to be, and let loose laughing. They asked what’s wrong and I just said, something funny happened, nothing important. I didn’t want it getting back to him. My boss could be the poster for that movie title. I had to compose myself before going back to work but I still get an urge to snicker when I see him now.

55. MJ - August 22, 2010

I’ve been boycotting this network since they changed from scifi to syfy. And you know what, I don’t miss that lame network one bit.

56. Losira - August 22, 2010

That is a good idea #55 ! If we could spread the word to boycott SyFi until its SciFi again! Just like scifi is like the other counties. Were supposed to be the flagship. What happend? Those running syfy here. Are trying to rid the country of us proud geeks by dragging us into mainstream mundane programing. It seems that way. If I want mundane I can watch other channels right? This is scifi not wrestling or everday living channel. If those at the top find scifi content so repulsive then there is the door! Don’t let it hit them on the butt on the way out! Stop demeaning us with this mockery of monsterpusses! LOL get unreal not real! Have some people. Put in that know scifi and not be ashamed of it! We know what we want! And so should they. Either fix this joke of a channel or shut down!
