Quite a number of shows have gone into hibernation for the Winter, but there is still a fair amount of sci fi and fantasy TV to keep you busy this week starting with Netflix’s urban fantasy movie Bright which has its debut on Friday. That one stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, and Noomi Rapace, and was written by Max Landis (Chronicle) and directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad). Here is the official description of the film:
In an alternate present day, humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time. Two police officers, one a human, the other an orc, embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which, in the wrong hands, could destroy everything.
Also this week, TNT’s The Librarians will air another double-episode and there will be new eps of Agents of SHIELD (ABC), Van Helsing (Syfy), Runaways (Hulu), and more. And now might be a good time to get caught up on the Fall shows because the Winter break will not last long with January bringing plenty of returns and debuts.
