ATLANTIS follows DOCTOR WHO 50th ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL in BBC America’s biggest Supernatural Saturday ever!

BBC AMERICA’s Supernatural Saturday brings the iconic lost city to life in a new 13-part fantasy-adventure series, Atlantis. When Jason (Jack Donnelly, Dancing on the Edge) sets out to find his father, he could never imagine his journey would lead to a strange, yet impossibly familiar land full of dangerous creatures, legendary heroes and palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants – the ancient fabled city of Atlantis. 

Creator, writer, and executive producer Howard Overman (Misfits), on the series: 

“It is both a privilege and a delight to have the opportunity to take audiences on a journey into the fantastical world of Atlantis. Drawing on the Greek Myths for inspiration, we aim to tell classic, action adventure stories in unexpected and exciting ways.”

Atlantis premieres Saturday, November 23, 9:00PM ET/PT following the encore broadcast of Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor, as part of BBC AMERICA’s biggest Supernatural Saturday ever.

My cruddy little edit contribution to the #saveintheflesh campaign.

Again, I cannot emphasize how wonderful In The Flesh is. It is not your run of the mill slick, sexy and flashy horror show cashing in on the current zombie craze. It is a thoughtful, sensitive, alternately joyful and heartbreaking study of discrimination, guilt, religious fanaticism, oppression of minorities, family ties, and nontraditional relationships as told through the lens of a rural Northern England town in the wake of a zombie apocalypse.

Currently, there are no announced plans to continue the show, which has two seasons comprising a total of nine episodes so far. It is my fervent hope that BBC recognizes the value of this show, and listens to the fans to commission a third season.

I want a series 3 for In the Flesh.

I want more of Kieren Walker not taking anyone’s crap. I want more of Simon learning he can be himself. I want Amy Dyer to be brought back by Halperin and Weston because it was unfair for both of her lives to end early. I want more of Jem learning to accept the changes in her world and learn to stand up for what’s right instead of what’s familiar. I want more of Sue putting her foot down as she learns not to let anyone push her around. I want more of Steve muddling his way through all his emotions. I want more Philip learning that he can stand up for the people who can’t stand up for themselves. I want more of Shirley being the best damn decent human being on the show. I want - well “want” is a strong term here - more of Gary doing shitty things because he learns about 8000 times slower than everyone else.

I want to watch Kieren and Jem work things out between them. I want to see Philip managing his life after Amy. I want to see Sue and Steve arguing themselves to a better place. I want to see what is going on with Halperin and Weston, they are up to some real shady shenanigans. I want to see what the townsfolk are going to do, after losing both Rick and then Amy to the senseless violence of the living. I want to know what is going to happen between Simon and the ULA members that consider him a traitor, and I want to know what the undead prophet really wants. I want to see what Kieren is going to do about Simon, and if Simon will tell Kieren what his mission was the day he saved Kieren’s life.

I want to see the undead realize that they may have a chance at coming back to real life. I want to see how their damaged world will cope with that knowledge, and that actuality. I want to know what happened to those two rabids Kieren rescued in Series 1.

There are SO MANY reasons why I want a series 3 for this show. You have my support- more than that, you have my heart and soul. You have an opportunity to provide a way for a really brilliant show to continue to touch the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, to give those people a show that is deserving of all the love we want to shower it with.

Don’t let that pass you by: #SaveInTheFlesh
