Agent Carter season finale review poster

Agent Carter season finale review

The final episode of Agent Carter, Valediction, is over. Along with the previous episode, ‘Snafu’, they are best seen back-to-back. Hayley Atwell did not fail to convince me for 8 episodes that she was truly Agent Carter. It is sad the season was so brief. That said, the short duration did mean the story did not stall to fill up episodes. To think about all that has happened in the past 8 episode makes me hope there will be a...


Sleepy Hollow Season 2 Finale Review. Benjamin Franklin decapitated

Sleepy Hollow Season 2 Finale Review

The second season of Sleepy Hollow is finally over. It was a bot of a mixed bag. There was a lot of good, and a lot of bad. The bad were mostly the apocalyptic storylines that were recycled over and over again. The good usually revolved around Ichabod finding his way in the modern world, but the addition of Hawley and the extra screen-time given to Jenny were also welcome. As the series may not be renewed due to low ratings this last...


The Walking Dead S5Ep11 The Distance Review. Rick hears children laughing

The Walking Dead S5Ep11 The Distance Review

Last week’s episode of TWD was too slow for my taste. I was hoping for more action with The Distance. I was only partly rewarded as the survivors have to deal with some walkers but mostly attempt to figure out whether it is Aaron is telling the truth about the Alexandria Safe-Zone. The Walking Dead S5Ep11 The Distance Review Picking up where the previous episode left off, Maggie and Sasha return to the barn and introduce a stranger, Aaron, to Rick...


Agent Carter S1Ep7 SNAFU Review. Hayley Atwell as agent Carter

Agent Carter S1Ep7 SNAFU Review

This weeks episode of Agent Carter, SNAFU, is the seventh of eight episode of the first season. I am sad to see the first season end so quickly but a quick pace of the show does have its appeal. In SNAFU both Carter (Hayley Atwell) and Jarvis are forced to take a back seat to the action after both have been arrested. Instead the episode concentrates on Thompson, Sousa and Dooley as they try to build a case against Carter. Their instincts...


The Walking Dead S5Ep10 Them Review. Carol and Daryl share a moment

The Walking Dead S5Ep10 Them Review

The fifth season of The Walking Dead is moving forward at a fast pace. After Beth died in Atlanta and Tyreese died in the previous episode the cast continues to change. TWD is unforgiving. It took a while to warm up to Beth and Tyreese but their deaths were certainly heartbreaking. The series needs to find a new dynamic if it doesn’t want to be remembered for killing off its main cats one by one. Doing so is made difficult...


Amanda Tapping directing Dark Matter. Syfy Dark Matter Preview

Syfy Dark Matter Preview

This summer Syfy Channel continues with its efforts of producing high-concept science fiction with the release of Dark Matter. Syfy Dark Matter Preview At this moment little is known about Dark Matter except for its premise. According to producer Joseph Mallozzi (Stargate) ‘The series follows the crew of a spaceship who awake from stasis with no clue where they are’. The 13 one-hour episodes are based on the graphic novel Dark Matter by Mallozzi and Mullie, published by Dark Horse Comics. At first...


Game Of Thrones Season 5 Preview. Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Preview

On April 12th, in just over two months time, Game Of Thrones will return for its fifth season. The show, along with the novels written by George R.R. Martin, is slowly drawing to its conclusion. Though we still have two more novels to go and at least three more seasons until its finished. I have been looking forward to season 5 with more trepidation than I did with previous seasons. The violence and nudity have for me become less important than...


Sith lord unveils light saber - Star Wars VII Lightsaber

J.J. Abrams talks about Star Wars VII Lightsaber

One of the most talked about scenes from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer was the new Sith ligthsaber. I dare say thanks to SciFiEmpire.net everybody got a high-resolution picture to pick their bone with. The controversy about the ligthsaber has hardly abated since the release of the trailer. Most think it is too gimmicky. After Episode 1 and 2 introduced new types of sabers it is hard to get around that argument. Many hope Star Wars Episode 7: The Force...


Agent Carter The Iron Ceiling Review. Leviathan girls turned into assassins

Agent Carter S1Ep5 The Iron Ceiling Review

After last weeks episode of Agent Carter, The Blitzkrieg Button, the show turned a corner. The mystery of the battle of Finow and the darker side of the war was brought forward. The silliness that occurred during the first few episodes lessened. Also more effort was placed on fleshing out secondary characters such as Roger Dooley (played by Shea Whigham) and Jack Thompson (played by Chad Michael Murray). Thompson is hard to like, but Dooley shows that he is not aloof of Peggy’s accomplishments...


The Blacklist season 2 James Spader promo

The Blacklist S2Ep9 Luther Braxton Review

The Blacklist The Blacklist is finally back after its mid-season hiatus. Fresh after the death of Alan Fitch (played by Alan Alda) Raymond Reddington intends to find the Fulcrum.

For Raymond (James Spader) things become complicated when notorious criminal Luther Braxton allows himself to be captured and send to a CIA blacksite located on an oil rig. There he hopes to gain access to the security network of...


Poseidon's Wake cover - Alastair Reynolds

Poseidon’s Wake by Alastair Reynolds Cover Released

Poseidon’s Wake by Alastair Reynolds Just before Christmas SF author Alastair Reynolds finally announced he had completed the third and last novel in the Poseidon’s Children trilogy. Or so we were led to believe. Poseidon’s Wake by Alastair Reynolds, as the novel is known is still on for a April 30th release by Gollancz. However, it may not be the last novel in the series. Instead it is a loose stand-alone sequel similar in spirit to Chasm City. It is not clear...


Agent Carter Review. Mr. Mink

Agent Carter Review – S1Ep4 The Blitzkrieg Button

Agent Carter is finally back after a two weeks absence with episode ‘The Blitzkrieg Button’. Hayley Atwell continues to shine as Peggy Carter. But slowly I am beginning to wonder what direction Agent Carter is taking. Allow me to argue what I think this show should do differently in this Agent Carter Review. Agent Carter Review – S1Ep4 The Blitzkrieg Button ‘The Blitzkrieg Button’ continues where ‘Time and Tide’ left off. SSR is still looking for Howard Stark and they...


Helix S2Ep2 Reunion Review. Scary infected man

Helix S2Ep2 Reunion Review

Helix S2Ep2 Reunion Review Helix continues to find more solid ground during its second season. With this weeks episode Reunion the pace is set for the season. Compared to the beginning of season 1 Helix concentrates less on dangerous pathogens. Though there is one that will make your vomit solid. Instead, it frames the mystery against a backdrop of the a cult on an island, the Ilaria Corporation and what Alan did to find Julia. To some of those questions...


A Day In The Future - Alastair Reynolds Poseidon Wake

Read Chapter 3 of A Day In The Future set for January 25th release

On Sunday the deadline for A Day In The Future finally passes and you will be able to download a copy from Amazon Kindle. At 2.99 I consider it a bargain. I decided to release a Kindle copy before a paper version to iron out the wrinkles with publishing. As I had to hand in the final draft on the 15th already the release is now in Gods hands (also known as Amazon). I started writing the novel back in...
