Colony S1Ep9 Zero Day Review. Will and Beau look at LA

Colony S1Ep9 Zero Day Review

Colony S1Ep9 Zero Day Review For the last few weeks I have been binging on Colony, the new Sci-fi mystery show on USA Network starring Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies. Colony is created by Carlton Cuse, who was also joint showrunner with David Lindelof for Lost. Recently he has also developed Bates Motel and is working on Jack Ryan, a series based on the character from the Tom Clancy novels. So, Colony is hardly lacking in quality, but somehow it took me more than...

Anna Torv to star in Mindhunter with David Fincher and Charlize Theron

Anna Torv to star in Netflix series Mindhunter produced by David Fincher

Mindhunter Ever since the end of Fringe in 2013 it has been quiet for Australian actress Anna Torv. She has starred in a few Australian productions but that’s it. A canceled TV show can have consequences but with her gravitas I hoped she would quickly star in another role. Now after almost 3 years she may get her break. Anna Torv is set to star in Mindhunter, a series produced by David Fincher and Charlize Theron for Netflix. Torv will...

Luvia Petersen on the set of Moonshot

Moonshot Preview: Sci-Fi short with Luvia Petersen

Moonshot Preview Those who feel the pain of the cancellation of Continuum will be eager to know one of its principal casts, Luvia Petersen, is set to act in two productions this year. One of the those of the short film Moonshot by director Matthew Lucas. The short film is described as a sci-fi retro movie, a movie set in a near future as it might have been imagined in the 1980’s. The title card certainly betrays its inspiration from the videogame Far Cry...

Closing the Zero matter rift. Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review.

Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review

Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review With Agents of SHIELD on its mid-season hiatus fans of Marvel have instead been shown Agent Carter. After a successful first season in which the show proofed it could be better than even SHIELD expectations were high for its new season. It is difficult to say whether Agent Carter has succeeded. In many ways the story, now set in L.A., was even darker than its first. Yet. the drama was also too often interrupted...

Arriving at Hilltop. The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie - a short opinion

The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie – a short opinion

The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie – a short opinion This weeks episode of The Walking Dead sets the scene for the final confrontation with Negan, a character whose introduction fans dreaded because of whom he kills in the comics. Looking beyond Negan is the confrontation with The Whisperer’s, something for season 7 I guess. Sadly, I am starting to feel fatigued by the series. This week’s episode may have again pivoted the series, now towards the Hilltop settlement and its leader Gregory,...

Elementary S4Ep14 Who Is That Masked Man Review In this weeks episode, Who Is That Masked Man, Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson investigate a triple homicide. Yet it is the continued investigation in Sherlock’s father Morland that provides drama, mystery and even a hint of sympathy for both as they the issue that separates them, Sherlock’s mother. The episode starts in a farm house near Montreal Canada. Watson, pretending to be a hot Quebecois dame called Nicolette lets herself into the house of the...

The X-Files S10Ep6 My Struggle II Preview

The X-Files S10Ep6 My Struggle II Preview

The X-Files S10Ep6 My Struggle II Preview This evening the last episode of The X-Files revival will air on Fox. The sixth episode, entitled My Struggle II, will conclude the tenth season with a story focused on the conspiracy. So far, that has not been the high-point of the season which started somewhat underwhelming. If, however, the last episode ends up being a good one the question arises whether or not the show should continue. I for one think it should....

Scully and Mulder talk about William. X-Files S10E04 Home Again Review

X-Files S10E04 Home Again Review

X-Files S10E04 Home Again Review After last weeks excellent episode few had the expectation that Home Again would be just as good. Fox had already chosen to switch around this episode with the previous to make up for the first two. Don’t get me wrong. They were good episodes, but not brilliant. The same can be said for Home Again. It is essentially a ‘Monster-of-the-week’ episode that starts very familiar. In the midst of a dispute about relocating as group of...

First up is BEYOND THE AQUILA RIFT: THE BEST OF ALASTAIR REYNOLDS. This is a collection of the author’s short fiction and novellas.

Alistair Pitt makes the deal. The Blacklist S3Ep13 Alistair Pitt Review

The Blacklist S3Ep13 Alistair Pitt Review

The Blacklist S3Ep13 Alistair Pitt Review After the death of The Director, and the peace deal between Reddington (James Spader) and the Cabal, The Blacklist has to re-invent itself. So far, it seems to be more of the same. Reddington is up against an international power struggle in which the Cabal is only one faction. As a viewer I started feeling skeptical about the direction the show took. I mean, how realistic is it to assume there are secret organizations vying for...
