New Lucy in White Promo Photo From Ash Vs Evil Dead

Starz also shared with io9 a pair of exclusive photos showing Bruce Campbell and Lucy Lawless, in character as Ash and Ruby, gearing up for battle with their respective weapons of choice.

Just because Ruby’s dressed in white should not be taken as a sign that she’s back on Ash’s side—at least, if the season three trailers (linked below) are to be believed. Of course, given the gallons of gore that are unleashed in every episode, she might be getting a more suitably evil wardrobe change well before episode two.

Ash vs Evil Dead returns to Starz on February 25.

The First SciFi Musical Was....Xena's The Bitter Suite!

ImageWell yes. Who else but Xena was ahead of the curve when it comes to breaking new ground with the first scifi Musical than Rob Tapert and Co. It wasn't Josh Whedon who pioneered the SciFi Musical. While people think it's Buffy - it's Xena who pioneered a lot of things and Buffy followed. Xena does NOT get the credit it deserves and Buffy steals her thunder which is a real shame. Don't get me started on Buffy Vs Xena or else this post could be THOUSANDS of words rather than a few paragraphs.

Anyhoo...SyFyWire had a whole article and video about Xena's awesome musical The Bitter Suite (the fans actually created a parody of it called The Bitter Treat. It's somewhere in the Xenaverse - gosh I wish someone would post it).

The past 20 years have seen an unusual trend on TV in which a series would feature a very special musical episode. What better place to explain characters bursting into spontaneous (yet intricate) numbers of song and dance than genre TV, where spells, technology, trickster demons, and supervillains can justify having the whole cast suddenly being in, well, a musical?

SYFY WIRE's Dany Roth takes a look at this particular sub-genre, revealing which TV show was the very first to start the whole trend. While you might think it all began with Buffy the Vampire Slayer's excellent "Once More, with Feeling," it was actually another badass female character who "planted the flag" into the musical episode genre three years earlier on Feb. 2, 1998: Xena: Warrior Princess.

Created by Rob Tapert, Xena: Warrior Princess aired for six seasons between 1995 and 2001. "The Bitter Suite" was the twelfth episode of the show's third season, which earned two Emmy Awards nominations for Best Song: one for regular series composer Joseph LoDuca for "The Love of Your Love," and the other for LoDuca and Dennis Spiegel for "Hearts Are Hurting." "The Bitter Suite" proved to be so successful that Xena would return to the musical genre two years later in the Season 5 episode "Lyre, Lyre, Hearts on Fire."

Video: Pleasuredome Cocaine Battle Scene Sappho Vs Sappho

This is my favourite scene from Pleasuredome (the other is the Drag Queens strutting down the stage looking magnificent, the opening number, the middle numbers, the closing numbers…yeah I loved it all but the Cocaine battle between Sappho and Sappho is my favourite).

This should not have been filmed but…I’m really glad it was because it’s INCREDIBLE. The short clip just doesn’t do this scene justice. Lucy was OUTSTANDING and the battle between reformed Sappho and Cocaine Sappho is quite a battle. This is where you get to see Lucy’s acting chops up close and not filtered through a camera lens (well in the live version). It’s truly a gobsmacking scene to watch live. The idea of superimposing Sappho in the leather outfit (good reuse of Lucy’s concert suit) on the giant monitors adds to the amazing scene of just Lucy on stage.

New Book: Go Girl - A storybook of epic NZ Women Featuring Lucy

Image636507681575140428

Lucy is featured in a new book called Go Girl about epic New Zealand women. Being in the same book as the legendary Nancy Wake is seriously cool. Nancy Wake was an Australian/New Zealand war hero. A true warrior. A genuine gutsy lady who went up against the Gestapo/Nazis. The Gestapo nicknamed her The White Mouse and became one of the most wanted Resistance leaders. LEGENDARY. Nancy is one of the most courageous women ever born and it’s a huge honour for Lucy to be in the same book as the legendary Nancy Wake. (I’m a World War II history nut).

Anyhoo…the book features Lucy as well (it’s a little hard NOT to include Lucy as a can-do Kiwi woman, isn’t it?)

A stunning illustrated storybook for the girls of New Zealand with a powerful can-do message!

Go Girl is a collection of true stories about New Zealand women who have done extraordinary things.

They strove for their goals.

They weren’t afraid to step up or speak out.

They blazed a trail for others to follow.

This book was written to show that YOU can join them!

Just some of the amazing women whose stories you will find in this book are Dame Whina Cooper, Janet Frame, Farah Palmer, Lucy Lawless, Kate Sheppard, Nancy Wake, Sophie Pascoe, Margaret Mahy, Lydia Ko, Merata Mita, Lorde, Rita Angus, Te Puea Herangi — and many more.

This is a book that should be on the beside table of every Kiwi girl, from age seven to one hundred and seven.
