Christmas has come early this week for trailers, with Marvel rumored to be on a spree and Syfy putting out 2 more trailers for their new show Deadly Class, which starts January 16th.

Before we get to the trailers, let’s start with the new poster for Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. It is so exciting to see her flying around, all powerful and lit up like Thor! You never realize how much you need to see something until you get it.

SYFY’s Happy!: Official Trailer #1


SYFY’s new show Happy! is about an ex-cop turned hitman (Chris Meloni, from True Blood and some other shows) who partners up with an invisible blue unicorn* played by Patton Oswalt to try to help some people.** Scary bad things happen along the way. It’s Mr Robot meets My Little Pony meets GYNX. I’m…in? At least for the pilot. Who can resist Patton Oswalt as a blue unicorn? Not me.

SyFy’s The Expanse Expanded and Season 2 Sneak Peak: Watch Here [VIDEO]

The Expanse Season 2 Begins February 1st


SyFy’s epic space series The Expanse, based on the series of novels by my fellow New Mexican(s) James S A Corey,* returns on Wednesday, February 1st at 10:00 PM ET/ 9:00 PM CT. Season 1 premiered last year to generally favorable reviews. I loved the first season, though it was so rich and complex that I’m not sure how anyone who hadn’t read the first few books followed the first few episodes, or understood what the Belters were saying.** I had to stop the show frequently to interpret for my husband. A deeply drawn alternate universe with a well-thought out show bible is like crack for me, especially when a series based on books doesn’t rigidly adhere to them. Season 1 was like an appetizer, getting the key players on the board and giving us a sense of the game. (Yes, I mixed that metaphor. I am but a mere blogger, not a professional. I’ll mix metaphors if I want.) Season 1 is available on Amazon Prime to rewatch/check out for the first time. SyFy also has a Netflix deal globally.
