Dear UVM Students,
Living/Learning Applications are due March 10th. A great place to live might be Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror in the Arts. Our program has room for 20 students and you might as well be one.
One photoset can’t describe our program, even if a picture is worth 1,000 words. First off, it barely scratches the surface of all the things we’re into and all the things we do—family like ours isn’t that easy to describe and, to be quite frank, there aren’t enough pictures allowed per photoset to fit all the things we like. We’re an accepting community and you should apply to live with us!
If you like video games, we’ve got a team ready to play Left 4 dead and slaughter zombies just as readily as we have a team ready to lounge and trade pokemon. If you like television, we’re just as ready to discuss Star Trek: The Original Series as we are to breakdown the many allusions in Community or how Buffy changed Fantasy as we know it. Film gets the same service, as we head over to premieres together or marathon entire franchises (Harry Pottered included, but not exclusively). Collectively, we’ve got hundreds of Magic cards, dozens of comics (Marvel and DC as well as Dark Horse and webcomics), and too many consoles for our TVs to handle.
You should give us a chance. Message me if you want to drop by our suites and see what it’s like!
PS We share netflix accounts and some of us have HBO Go.
NBC is re-engaging the “Heroes” team, ordering 13 episodes of an event miniseries to air next year with series creator Tim Kring at the helm.
NBC teased the plan to revive the franchise with a promo spot that aired during Saturday’s telecast of Olympics coverage.
The brief spot featured a fade-in on the “Heroes” logo with the word “Reborn” added along with “Coming 2015.”
There had been rumors last year that the Peacock was looking to revive the mystery-fantasy drama that aired from 2006-2010. Kring is set to exec produce 13 new episodes.
Details of the storyline are being kept under wraps. It’s described as a stand-alone arc. A digital series will bow prior to the TV return to introduce (or perhaps re-introduce) fans to the characters that will be the focus of “Reborn.”
“The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said NBC Entertainment prexy Jennifer Salke. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept. Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”
