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...

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...

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-ray Review. Picard and Ro Laren together

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-ray Review

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-ray Review Welcome to the review of Star Trek The Next Generation Season 7. It has been a long journey since I reviewed season 1 over two years ago, but we have finally arrived. Season 7 is difficult to review. There is so much to like, but there are some bad apples as well. It was a show that was trying to change itself...

Person of Interest S4Ep11 If-Then-Else Review - Jim Caviezel as Reese at his Alamo

Person of Interest S4Ep11 If-Then-Else Review

Person of Interest S4Ep11 If-Then-Else Review Person of Interest not only knows how to blow away half the cast but also the audience in this weeks spectacular episode. I had seen the preview trailer and I knew Denise The had written the episode. Yet I was still stunned how well it was crafted. The title is an allusion to the most basic method of programming run-time choices....

Agent Carter Series Premiere Review - Hayley Atwell shows some cleavage

Agent Carter Series Premiere Review

Agent Carter Series Premiere Review After the so-so first season of Agent of Shield anyone would think that ABC and Marvel got balls for trying to launch another starring Peggy Carter. Peggy is played by Hayley Atwell as the title character. SHIELD may have improved in quality but a show centered on one character, remembered mostly from the first Captain America movie sounds too much like trying to come up...

A Day In The Future - Alastair Reynolds Poseidon Wake

Read Chapter 2 of A Day In The Future set for January 25th release

The deadline for the upcoming release of my first novel is looming ever closer. On January 25th you can download the Kindle version from Amazon.com. Before that, before the 15th I am obligated to upload the last version. Though I think I am ready I do keep finding small things to change. I find it difficult to hand over the story that I have become very attached to. After I announced...

The Martian by Andy Weir Review

The Martian by Andy Weir Review

For this year Ridley Scott has a film adaption of Andy Weir’s début novel, The Martian, planned. It will star Matt Damon as the stranded astronaut Mark Watney and Jessica Chastain as Melissa Lewis, the captain of the mission to the red planet. After many failed movies about Mars (John Carter and Mission to Mars from 2000) you cannot help but wonder why anyone would dare to tackle such a project. I...

2015 Science-Fiction Movies Preview - New storm troopers - Star Wars Episode 7 trailer released

2015 Science-Fiction Movies Preview

First allow me to wish everybody a Happy New Year. I hope together we can make a 2015 an even more successful blogging year than 2014 which at a average daily viewership of almost a thousand was the most successful year since 2011. 2015 is already shaping up to be an anticipated year in science-fiction cinema. A considerable amount franchises are set to get a reboot or sequel which makes...

A Day In The Future - Alastair Reynolds Poseidon Wake

Alastair Reynolds’s Poseidon’s Wake set for April 2015 release

Finally there is a news flash about the third and last novel of Alastair Reynolds’s Poseidon’s Children series. The novel is entitled Poseidon’s Wake and is scheduled for a April 16th release. The information comes from the Amazon.com page and is also mentioned on Reynolds’s Twitter page. That said, there is no synopsis and no book cover as of yet. I expect we will have to wait until...

SciFiEmpire Merry Christmas

Offering my Christmas Greetings + details on the release of my first novel!

For those who may be wondering why I haven’t posted in over a week. Well, I have enjoyed my Christmas holiday. As it is the 24th of December, I offer you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The Remains of the Year…. For some months I have worked on my master thesis on Machine Learning. Right before December things got moving and I have been very busy. That...

Brandon P. Bell as Executive Officer Oren Gault - Syfy Ascension Night One Review

Syfy Ascension Night One Review

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...

Star Trek DTI The Collectors Review novella cover

Star Trek DTI The Collectors Review

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...

Continuum renew for shortened 4th season! Continuum cast

Continuum renewed for shortened 4th season!

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...

Marina Sirtis miniskirt Star Trek

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu Ray

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...
