Syfy Ascension Night One Review

December 16, 2014 // 0 Comments

Ever since the first announcements of Ascension I was more than just intrigued. Perhaps it was the obviously flawed premise of a 1960’s space ship launched to another planet that got me to ask. ‘How the hell do they think to get away with that’. When after the initial announcement several executives of Syfy put the future of their network on the success of this show I started to pay attention. Syfy channel has a reputation of cancelling their core programming in favor of ...

Star Trek DTI The Collectors Review

December 11, 2014 // 0 Comments

Star Trek DTI The Collectors Review Christopher L. Bennett is finally back with another Department of Temporal Investigations story. This time it is a novella instead of a novel like his previous two outings. I used to write regular updates and reviews of Star Trek novels, but frankly reading all the material would be a full-time job. That, along with the end of the Starfleet Academy series has meant I haven’t done a review in over a year. The Collectors isn’t the first novella I ...

Continuum renewed for shortened 4th season!

December 9, 2014 // 0 Comments

Continuum renewed for shortened 4th season It appears that December is the new August, not November! Finally fans of Syfy’s Continuum (actually Showcase’s) starring Rachel Nichols can rejoice with knowledge the show will be extended. However, its fourth season will also be its last and it will only be 6 episodes long. Just enough to roundup the storyline I suppose. Rachel Nichols has already confirmed the news on Twitter. She stated the following “Yes, the words LAST SEASON ...

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu Ray

December 8, 2014 // 0 Comments

While attempting to keep an eye on all the presents I want to buy for other people this holiday season I almost forgot Star Trek has several big releases. Most notably the last season of Star Trek The Next Generation has been released on Blu-ray. You can now watch Picard, Troi, Worf and the other one last time in 1080p. Or you can watch it as often as you like afterwards. Today I stumbled upon the box set by chance. You can find pictures of the 6-disc set in the wild below. I didn’t get ...

Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer pose for 2015 Acting Outlaws Calendar

December 6, 2014 // 0 Comments

Since 2013 Actresses Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer have made a charity calendar to raise funds for a good cause. Both actresses are of course famous from the Battlestar Galactica remake of 2003. On RedBubble as well as the website of their charity, Acting Outlaws, you can now buy the calendar for the sum of 36.07 euro’s. I think it is well worth it. Their poses aren’t too revealing and seem to harken back to classic pin-up photography. This year alone their charity has already ...

Terminator: Genisys Trailer Released

December 4, 2014 // 0 Comments

After Jurassic World and Star Wars Episode 7 another Sci-fi sequel/reboot received a trailer to woo fans. For the most part Terminator: Genisys slipped beneath my radar. After all, if you have seen T3 and T4: Salvation who wants to see another Terminator movie. However, with the involvement of Emilia Clarke and Arnold Schwarzenegger the buzz has been positive. CyberDyne Systems model 101 Terminator: Genisys Trailer Released Sadly, after I saw this trailer I was not convinced the movie is on ...

Agents of SHIELD S2Ep9 Ye Who Enter Here Review

December 3, 2014 // 0 Comments

This week’s episode of Agents of SHIELD, “…Ye Who Enter Here”, is the prelude to mid-season finale set to air December 9th. While most other shows have already gone into their hiatus SHIELD goes on, and it is going strong. Gone are those murky episode from season 1 you just loved to hate. I read some other reviews of this episode on the web and I am astonished at some of the criticism. Most reviewers seem fixated on little quirks to judge the entire episode, not ...

Sleepy Hollow S2Ep11 The Akeda Review

December 2, 2014 // 0 Comments

The first half of Sleepy Hollow’s second season has ended on a high mark. For those who have read some of my reviews of the first season will know I criticized the uneven quality of the show. For the most part that has been fixed during season 2. Furthermore the cast has been extended to include Matt Barr as Nick Horley while John Noble and Neil Jackson have become regulars. All this does mean Sleepy Hollow had to take its time to work on the shows exposition. Too many episodes of the ...

Star Wars Episode 7 trailer released

November 28, 2014 // 0 Comments

The Dark side, and the Light…. Finally, after almost two years of hearing how Star Wars episode 7 has been in production fans will finally get to see some footage. In all the excitement about the trailer that has been slowly building for weeks you would almost forget Jurassic World debuted a trailer as well. Yes, I know what you’re thinking. I saw, it was crap. Well, it was really! Bryce Dallas Howard is hot, Chris Pratt is cool but the hybrid dinosaurs idea just stinks. And you ...

Person of Interest S4Ep9 The Devil You Know Review

November 26, 2014 // 0 Comments

Invictus Maneo It is strange that this episode of Person of Interest had so many one-liners. It makes it hard to choose a suitable subtitle. Would it be ‘there is always a way out’? Reese (Jim Caviezel) would have liked that. Or Dominic’s line ‘the game within a game’, but that sounds too much like a tagline from a Frank Herbert book. Both Elias and his right-hand man Scarface (real name Anthony) used the Latin phrase Invictus Maneo which means ‘I remain ...

Star Wars Rebels Gathering Forces Review

November 25, 2014 // 0 Comments

I thought it time to write a review of Star Wars Rebels, the new Star Wars animated series that replaces The Clone Wars. After the pilot and the subsequent 7 episodes I have come to like this show. The 22 minute duration makes it snappy if a bit short. The humor is top-notch but the series is not afraid to show a darker side either. It’s not like it got much of a choice after previous series. I think Rebels has the wonderful opportunity to broaden the coming story line that will be ...

Michio Kaku to host Cosmos season 2

November 24, 2014 // 0 Comments

Michio Kaku to host Cosmos season 2 If during the spring you also enjoyed Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey take comfort that a second season is in production. The reboot of Cosmos was of course based on the original show hosted by Carl Sagan in 1980. As Carl died in 1996 the new show was hosted by his disciple astrophysicist/science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson. Alas Neil won’t reappear for season 2. In an interview with the Tribune he cites his long absence from his family during season ...

Jupiter Ascending Preview

November 23, 2014 // 1 Comment

Jupiter Ascending Preview Next February in what can be seen as one of the first big movie release of the year we get a new movie from the Wachowski’s. It is entitled Jupiter Ascending. It stars Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum and Sean Bean. The film is centered on Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), a down-on-her-luck janitor and Caine Wise (Channing Tatum), an interplanetary warrior who informs Jones that her destiny extends beyond Earth. It marks the first movie since The Matrix trilogy that has ...

William Shatner joins Haven

November 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

William Shatner joins Haven I used to put up the odd review of Haven every now and then. It mostly depended on whether an episode was any good. Quite frankly the last really good episode was the finale of season 3. Afterwards, too many mysteries were solved to my disappointment and too many secondary characters were killed off. Now during its fifth season the show has been hurting due to negative fan backlash. The ratings have also steadily dropped. That may change with the inclusion ...
