I was raised on television, so after much debating and hemming and hawing, here are my top 5 favorite television shows of the past 5 years. I chose some based on the educational merit of the times and others on the taste of entertainment of our times.
Dan O’Bannon’s story is one of unabashed creativity and generic infusions, both in terms of hybridization and innovation. It is with this consideration and ambitions toward new horizons that we introduce the “Dan O’Bannon Other Worlds Austin Filmmaker Grant,” which we hope will allow burgeoning local voices representing the genres of SciFi, horror, and fantasy, an opportunity to bring those voices to fruition.
Here in Austin, we are hitting a 100+ degree weather streak. This means that as we celebrate America this month we are also celebrating the wonderful invention of air conditioning. So go grab a snocone and prepare yourself for some Netflix and chill indoors with some amazing SciFi and Horror. From superheroes to time travel to creepy dinner parties, this month’s additions are not to miss.
A lot of films cross my virtual desk on their own, but I tend to seek out the SciFi ones no matter what.
