SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Marcel Vigneron Talks "Quantum Kitchen," Premiering Tonight

Marcel's Quantum KitchenTop Chef all-star Marcel Vigneron is back on the air this week with his new reality show, Marcel's Quantum Kitchen. The series premieres tonight (Tuesday, March 22) at 10 pm on Syfy.

That's right, a personality-driven reality cooking show on Syfy. As the network strays further from its science fiction roots, critics and viewers have been scratching their heads wondering how this show fits into Syfy's plan. But Marcel's focus on molecular gastronomy – using scientific techniques and tools to create innovative dishes – could make sense if the show plays up the science enough.

"I know it seems kind of like an abstract fit," says Marcel. "But once you see the show I feel like it's totally going to make sense. We focus on a lot of the same things. Syfy is all about 'imagining greater,' which is essentially what I and my culinary team are all about."

The series focuses on Marcel creating fabulous events for the well-heeled clients of his new catering company. In addition to creating the menus, Marcel will work with clients and party planners to create an entire experience.

Josh Gates LIVE From Ireland with "Destination Truth"

By Karen Moul

Josh GatesSyfy's going green for St. Patrick Day with a special four-hour live episode of Destination Truth. On Thursday, March 17, host Josh Gates and his team will broadcast from Ireland, where they will brave the crumbling ruin of Duckett's Grove Castle in search of the banshee, a female spirit whose scream is believed to be an omen of death.


Gates is eager to return to Ireland; last March he and his team visited the Emerald Isle is search of leprechauns. "There's this really intense connection in Ireland to their folklore," he says, "and you meet a lot of people who really are invested in these paranormal reports. They really believe that these ghosts are there, they believe that the banshee is there, and they claim to have had these first-person experiences that are really compelling when you listen to them."

The bansee is a ghost who likes to be seen as well as heard. Gates describes the "piercing wail that really defines the banshee. And the sound of the banshee is something that if you walk down the street in Ireland and polled 100 people and asked them about the banshee's wail, you'd be amazed at how many people will have something to say about it."

An Exclusive Look at Marcel's Quantum Kitchen

By Karen Moul

Marcel's Quantum KitchenSyfy continues its move into original, unscripted programming with a cooking show: Marcel's Quantum Kitchen. During the recent Syfy Digital Press Tour, he gave the media an early look at what was to come.

Reality fans know Marcel Vigneron as Top Chef's season two runner-up, the "foam guy" with the big ego to match his big hair. He was back for a polarizing turn on this season's Top Chef All Stars but was voted off during Restaurant Wars.

But Marcel is back in action as the star of his own reality show. Marcel's Quantum Kitchen centers on his new catering and party planning company.

A Note From the Editor

A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR:

I recently realized that a few previous articles for whatever reason had either not gotten published, or were not set to "live" on the site and were therefore not available. I decided that if I were to simply publish them under their respective dates, that because things are listed by date on the site, most visitors would never see them. I decided that the best way to present them was to post them as if they are new articles so that they show up on the front of the site. They will also will be released over a short period of time so that they will get a chance to be featured. I chose the order because two of the articles actually fit well with the start of the new episodes / seasons of these shows. Please bare with me, as they are great interviews and I don't want to see them go unread. Once I am able to find a better way to manage publication (at this point I am the only person who publishes anything on the site / manages it) with my team, things will go a lot smoother. I am currently working on finding an editor that will allow contributions so that I am not trying to manage everything on my own.

There are also some things that unfortunately do to time constraints and other commitments had to be postponed as I have been catching up on the previously mentioned articles, that are still planned for future updates, including but not limited to: a gallery including all of the photos taken during the Syfy Digital Press Tour (many previously unpublished to the site), exclusive video clips from interviews with the talent at the press event (i.e. personal videos of my own questions), and a fans look at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, including photos and videos, which in the interest of interviews I have yet to have a chance to complete.

Please accept my apology for the delays as I work to make SciFi Vision a better science fiction and pop culture resource.
