Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer - John delancie as Q in All Good Things

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer and Preview

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer Finally the last season of The Next Generation will get its Blu-Ray release. Ever since CBS home released a preview disk set of 4 TNG episodes in full HD in 2012 it has been a pleasure to rewatch the entire series. In my opinion the experience is drastically improved over the lackluster DVD release from years back. The special effects and the drama seem to contain a lot more impact with the remastered HD release....

Haven season 5 Preview

The fifth season of Syfy’s Haven is almost upon us, next Thursday on September 11th the first half of the season will start airing. Please note that the time slot has moved from Friday to Thursday, normally this is a good thing because Friday nights is considered to be the graveyard slot of TV. This season of Haven is as mentioned split up into two mini seasons of 13 episodes each. I personally have severe misgivings about this. The show has slipped from its...

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Trailer and Preview - Ex-Agent Ward (Brett Dalton)

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Trailer and Preview

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Trailer and Preview Agents of SHIELD was one of last year’s most controversial new TV to air. It wasn’t controversial because of any graphic violence or nudity but because many fans felt let down by the hype. I was one of them. During the first few episodes I was easily distracted by the California setting, the lame plot and the lead characters who acted like jerks. Slowly, with many hiccups, the season improved until the moment...

Penetration testing A Hands-on introduction to hacking by Georgia Weidman Review!

As such I have a...

Autómata preview movie poster starring Antonio Banderas

Autómata Preview and Trailer Released!

It took me by surprise this morning to discover that Antonio Banderas was starring in a Science Fiction movie. It is called Automata and from the trailer it seems to be a cross between Blade Runner and I, Robot. What surprised me even more is that the trailer was very good. Internet forums are full of trolls saying that a particular work is derived from another. I don’t care, I accept that artists can be inspired by other artists as long as...

Person of Interest Season 4 Preview

The fall is almost upon us and you know what that means. TV shows, lots of TV-shows. Some of the new ones such as Gotham, Constantine, NCIS New Orléans and many more. While others will start their make or break second season (Agents of SHIELD and The Blacklist). Frankly there is simply too much to review for one author of a small sci-fi blog. Anyway, the show I am most looking forward is to Person of Interest (PoI). PoI suffered during its second season...

The Circuit – Executor Rising by Rhett C. Bruno Review

The Circuit – Executor Rising by Rhett C. Bruno Review The Circuit: Executor Rising is the début novel of Rhett Bruno, who is otherwise an architect attached to Syracuse University. The story follows an all too familiar premise. In the far future after the earth was destroyed (by all means kill the old girl) and humanity scattered in the solar system. Various factions are vying for control (they always are) over a rare element called Gravitum (there is always something like that). However, the familiarity doesn’t stop there. Most leaders...

At the San Diego Comic-Con a new Interstellar trailer was shown that has now also been released for viewers at home. This new trailer which you can see...

The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies Trailer - Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel

The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies Trailer

The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies Trailer Finally the first trailer for Peter Jackson’s film The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has been released. So far the director has been tight-lipped about the third and last installment of The Hobbit trilogy. The movies are of course inspired by J.R.R Tolkien’s children book The Hobbit set in Middle-Earth. I was skeptical that a film version of a rather short children’s tale would work. However, Peter Jackson has taken every...

Avengers Age of Ultron Preview

Avengers Age of Ultron Preview Comic-Con 2014 is in full swing and as every year there is simply too much news too report. Comic-con is not usually reserved for large announcements.

This second Avengers is again directed by Joss Whedon and will see a familiar cast being enlarged by Elizabeth...

Extant S1Ep3 Wish You Were Here Review - John and Molly talking to bigots

Extant S1Ep3 Wish You Were Here Review

The third episode of extant initially tries to put on the brakes after last weeks episode pulled the veil on much of the mystery. Molly got the definitive news that she has become pregnant on the space station alone. She has also confronted her superiors at the ISEA about and her friend Kryger is also definitively alive. Extant needs to put on the brakes otherwise the show will easily burn itself out. Imagine how long it took for Lost to even show who The...

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD Slowly the news is starting to trickle in about the second season of Agents of SHIELD. The show is scheduled to premiere on September 23, 2014. I think most people interested can be split into two groups. The first group want to see more of the Marvel Universe because they are fans. While the second want to see if the show will be cancelled. Despite some good reviews during the latter episodes the ratings barely...
