Wynonna Earp (SyFy) -- Series Discussion Thread



Wynonna Earp follows Wyatt Earp's great granddaughter as she battles demons and other creatures. With her unique abilities, and a posse of dysfunctional allies, she's the only thing that can bring the paranormal to justice.

Saw the trailer during "Bitten" and it looked interesting. At first I thought it was the show with the female Van Helsing but obviously not.



Maybe she got the Colt from the winchester boys on Supernatural. I'll still watch it. I'm a sap for shows like this.

Re: Wynonna Earp...Demon Hunter on Scyfy

I'll try it too. It's based on the comic book originally published in 1996, so maybe Supernatural got it from her?

I'll give it a shot but Syfy hasn't been pushing it that much from what I've seen. I keep seeing promos for a show called Hunters more than this Wynonna Earp.

Genre is listed as "Based on a comic book"

So it's the same genre as Blue is the Warmest Color and X-Men.

I've been seeing the ads for this and Hunters in about equal amounts. Maybe they air during different shows though? I've been watching Magicians, Lost Girl & Bitten.

And 300, From Hell, Ghost World, History of Violence, Losers, The Mask, Men in Black, Red, Road to Perdition, Rocketeer, Scott Pilgrim, Sin City, Stardust, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Wanted, Whiteout, etc.

Seen one seen 'em all. Yup.

re: Wynonna Earp (SyFy) -- Series Discussion Thread

When someone says comic book, I immediately think of superheroes. It gets my goat when they call something like Men In Black a comic book movie. Comic books just happened to be the medium in which the story and characters were first published, but I think "comic book" movies should strictly refer to superhero-related entertainment.

re: Wynonna Earp (SyFy) -- Series Discussion Thread

When someone says comic book I immediately think of all the genres, and also guess at whether or not the speaker is only speaking of super-heroes. Which I find annoying, in the same way that I would someone speaking of "TV", but who only means Network TV, would be.

I'd love to see everyone start saying "super-hero" movies and realize that comics are a big medium filled with lots of categories and room for them all.

Gave it two episodes. Complete garbage. Awful writing, awful acting, awful effects, etc.

I haven't seen much to like in the first three episodes. The pilot was pretty bad, though the following episodes have been merely forgettable. The bad guys are cartoonishly over the top.

I've been wondering if it's meant to be tongue-in-cheek. I especially get that vibe from the main actress portraying Wynonna.

I want to like this show but it's hilariously bad. Can I presume it's headed to the chopping block like Hunters is?

I'm not saying the show was good but I did find myself entertained. I found almost the entire cast likable which made up for the mediocrity. The show did its best to build a mythology and a enjoyed the campiness of the series.

re: Wynonna Earp (SyFy) -- Series Discussion Thread

It was weirdly positioned as a modern Western-demon hybrid show. I think it could have worked if the show was more serious but a lot of it was very campy.

Here's a tip to the producers for their next show. If you are going to make light-hearted genre fare, you have to cast drop-dead gorgeous lead actresses.

The lead on this show is no Kate Beckinsale but she's hardly bothersome to the eyes.

One odd thing about the finale: Peacemaker glowed blue when Wynonna shot Willa, but it didn't glow at all when she almost shot that guy in an earlier episode. Of course it normally glows gold when it shoots demons, so something is definitely afoot.

Renewed for a 2nd season by SyFy: http://deadline.com/2016/07/wynonna-...on-1201791669/

If you were one of those who skipped this because you didn't have time to watch or wrote it off right away, the entire season is available on demand or via the SyFy app. The episodes don't expire until December.

The renewal is welcome news as I really enjoyed the heck out of this show. Even if the 2nd season turns out to be the last, 10 more episodes to enjoy is better than none.

Wow, this is one of the more surprising renewals I can remember considering the ratings and lack of buzz. For as much as we criticize SyFy they tend to give there shows the benefit of the doubt. It must be a cheap show to produce. Glad to see it will be back.

for a while I thought the main actress on this was also the main actress on Van Helsing. I saw the first episode of that after Sharknado 4

This is it.

No much of a discussion show.

Based on the IDW Publishing comic book created by Beau Smith, WYNONNA EARP follows the life of famous lawman Wyatt Earp's demon-fighting great-great-granddaughter Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano), who inherited Wyatt's mythic abilities. In Season 2, Wynonna and the gang must face a whole new level of evil when more paranormal beings enter the Ghost Triangle.

FRIDAY, JUNE 9

WYNONNA EARP "Steel Bars And Stone Walls" - 10/9c *SEASON PREMIERE*

The gun wielding, whiskey drinking, quip slinging heroine returns to raise a little hell - and rid her home of the supernatural evils that plague it. But this time, she's not just facing resurrected demon outlaws; there are monsters the likes of which Wynonna never imagined - and some of them she'll have to face sober! Seven astonishing cliffhangers; Forty-two blistering minutes to resolve 'em. The consequences of Waverly's actions affect the whole team.
