What is Wireless (the webseries)?

What is ‘Con Man’?

Standard

Don’t you just hate when an actor reaches that point in their career where they just stop trying, you know when they just play themselves in every movie come comedy, action or high water. Fortunately Alan Tudyk hasn’t reached that point as seen here by him playing an actor best known for a short lived sci-fi show from over a decade ago where he played pilot to Nathan Fillion’s swashbuckling captain. A show which he now struggles to escape the low budget shadow and fanbase of. That is how you stretch yourself as an actor and this is……………………

‘The Blue Beetle’.

Originally invented way back in 1939 The Blue Beetle was a popular character in the day, drawing in events at the worlds fair, radio serials and Jack ‘The King’ Kirby.

Though now played by Ted Kord, protégée to Garrett and the child of aforementioned Steve Ditko. From the swinging sixties onward Kord fought crime as the wise cracking superhero, teaming up with various branches of the Justice League and even going mano a mnao with Superman killer ‘Doomsday’ (he was knocked out cold). That is until 2005 when he met his end via bullet in the brain pan, squish. This was the life of Ted Kord. That is until today, well 2012, when Ted Kord returned in……………

H+: a digital series : a review

Standard

H+ the digital series is so named due to being about the “advancement of humanity” or creating a human plus and because it is a web or “digital” show available on youtube. It is set twenty minutes into the future and carries on the tradition of the march of technology in particular the onslaught of smart phones. See the world today is so small and so fast that we can longer afford to leave our computers; instead we have merely shrunk them down and laden them with games we would not normally bother playing. However for some this is not enough, in the time it takes you to lift your phone from your pocket the contract could be lost and so we have now placed them on our wrist like an old sci-fi video communicator except without the live video option, though I’m sure that’s coming in the next model. But for some this is not enough just think of all that effort and time wasted lifting your wrist up to eye level and so we have begun to strap them to our faces.’ H+ the digital series’ imagines a future one step beyond where we have injected them into our very bodies.
