Sarah Shahi, Taraji P. Henson dressing up for nightclub in leather skirt - Person of Interest

Person of Interest S3Ep3 ‘Lady Killer’ Review

Person of Interest is a great show but once in a while you get a real stinker of an episode. I remember one or two from both earlier seasons but this episode is pretty much the lamest ever. I don’t think the creative staff purposefully set out to make a bad episode (why would they) but they certainly had the idea to bring in a serious element of drama that just falls completely flat. They went wrong when it became...

Giancarlo Esposito in Revolution season 2 as Tom Neville

Revolution S2Ep2 ‘There Will Be Blood’ Review

Revolution is one of those shows that everyone at times seems to love to hate. Season 1 for that matter got a lot of flak. Despite being a Bad Robot productions series it hardly lived up to the quality of other shows such as Lost, Fringe and Person of Interest. Instead it came closer to Alcatraz in that it wasn’t bad but it felt rushed. Revolution certainly does feel rushed, or at least its first season did. I myself wasn’t a Charlie hater...

Lucy Liu short skirt as Watson Elementary Step Nine

Elementary season 2 premiere ‘Step Nine’ review!

I thoroughly enjoyed the first season of Elementary starring Johnny Lee Miller (Hackers) and Lucy Liu. However, the rather early dénouement of the Moriarty/Irene Adler storyline left a slight bitter aftertaste. I was thus not looking forward to hearing anything about during season 2. Luckily the first episode primarily takes part in London and makes for a very refreshing start to the new season. It’s quite invigorating if I may take a line from Sherlock. ‘Step Nine’ starts with Holmes...

Clark Gregg as agent Coulson - Agents of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD ‘Pilot’ Review!

One of the first things I was wondering about at the start of the pilot of ‘Agents of SHIELD’ was which character the show would focus on. Sure, agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) has certainly gotten most of the fans attention but it became clear quite quickly that an aura of mystery would surround him and his resurrection for a very long time. Instead we have an ensemble of other characters such as agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), a former black ops specialist who seems to...

Sarah Shahi in Person of Interest opening sequence - Person of Interest

Person Of Interest S3Ep1 ‘Liberty’ Review!

Person Of Interest is back for its third season. Ever since May the buzz for this show increased when it became clear that both characters Samantha Shaw (Sarah Shahi) and Root (Amy Acker) would return as regulars. This enlargement of cast along with resolution of the ‘find-the-machine’ storyline considerably increases the scope of the series. PoI creative director Jonathan Nolan certainly seems to take effort in keeping this show on track after it almost got derailed during the first half of season...

Kate Kelton as Jordan McKee in Haven season 4

Haven S4Ep2 ‘Survivors’ review!

Survivors This week’s episode of Haven continues with the menacing tone that has been brought upon the personal relations of both Nathan and Duke. For once it is not a troubled person that is the biggest threat but instead it is The Guard. During last weeks episode the new character Jennifer made a prophecy that if Audrey killed the person she loved the most the troubles would go away. The Guard, and Jordan (Kate Kelton) in particular, have a vested interest in...

Become a Person of Interest during its 3rd season!

CBS has a new way to lure fans of the show into its third season. Now you can upload your photo to the show’s Facebook page, from there on it might just show up in the show at any moment during the course of its third season. As you may remember CBS had something similar to promote the show’s initial release. At subway stations in New York and some other places you could stand in front of a camera and your picture...

Science-fiction & Fantasy fall 2013 TV schedule!

Haven. The first episode of Haven had already aired on the 13th of September. It was a good episode though it did have twists and turns that kind of destroyed the suspense. the shows creators seem to have taken up on certain criticism about the women in the show. Not only is Kate Kelton’s character Jordan not dead they have introduced a new female lead as well (Emma Lahana as Jennifer Mason). About Jordan, it is painfully clear she will be some sort...

Slow Bullets by Alastair Reynolds Review

On The Steel Breeze chapter 2 online!

As readers will probably know the next novel of the Maestro of Science Fiction Alastair Reynolds will be published at the end of September. The first chapter of On The Steel Breeze has already been online since last week and so now Gollancz has released a second. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a PDF version so you will have to read the chapter below. That’s hardly a burden now is it! I don’t expect a third chapter to be released, from here...

Riddick 3 - Vin Diesel as Riddick

Riddick movie review!

Personally I wouldn’t have cared less if the Riddick franchise had stayed dead. The first two movies were so-so, entertaining but not brilliant. The games were OK but it wasn’t like they were really memorable. Yet, we have got ourselves a third Riddick movie. To my surprise it was quite good… for a pop-corn action movie that is. It is certainly not brilliant though it does have its moments. Riddick is perhaps a little bit maligned by a few scenes...

Rosario Dawson in Stargate Trilogy reboot

Roland Emmerich rebooting Stargate!

The long wait appears to be over for gaters. Roland Emmerich is rebooting the Stargate franchise that he originally started back in 1994. Sadly that means there will be no SG-1 or Atlantis movies. At least I seriously doubt it. According to Roland the series that were spawned by the 1994 movie were never really canon (I wouldn’t dare say that a convention). He also doesn’t think any of the original cast can make back into the new trilogy because they...

Slow Bullets by Alastair Reynolds Review

On The steel Breeze chapter 1 Online!

On The Steel Breeze For those readers who enjoyed ‘Blue Remembered Earth’ from Alastair Reynolds last can now read the first chapter of his upcoming novel ‘On The Steel Breeze’. This latest novel is a sequel to last years and the second in a planned trilogy called Poseidon’s Children.  Though last years ‘Blue Remembered Earth’ was not without it flaws I do belief that I have maligned a bit too much in my review, so better not search for it...

New Star Trek TV series - woman in skirt uniform

Star Trek Into Darkness available on iTunes!

Into Darkness for 14.99 Well, it’s the time of the season for digital downloads and Blu-Ray releases. After Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness were released during the early summer period we can now catch them on the rebound. Iron Man 3 has already been released for Blu-Ray but Star Trek Into Darkness will for now only released as a digital download on iTunes for 14.99. It at least gave me the possibility to re-watch this rather controversial release. Personally I...

Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron in 2077 - Continuum Second Guess

Continuum S2Ep11 Second Guess Review!

Another episode of Continuum has aired so we are up for another review. Just like last week’s episode we had another strong showing this week. It did not make the mistake of introducing too much drama and yet it addressed many issues that had bugged fans of the show for some time. It’s only downside is that it brings back plot points that have long been forgotten and so at times it can be a little bit confusing. Second Guess The episode...
