Continuum Season 3 - Erik Knudsen as Alec Sadler

Continuum Season 3 Preview!

With all the episodes of Person of Interest, Agents of SHIELD and Almost Human you would almost forget that there are other shows. One of those is Showcases’s/Syfy Channel’s Continuum which will be back for its third season on March 16th. That’s right, on Sunday evening. I only heard of the show just a day before season 1 was supposed to start airing. I really do wish Syfy Channel would promote it more. That said, the March 16th release is for...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D S1Ep15 'Yes Men' - Elena Satine as Lorelei

Agents of SHIELD S1Ep15 ‘Yes Men’ Review

The events of the previous episode ‘T.A.H.I.T.I’ have severely altered the emotional level of this show. Suddenly its tone has gotten quite  big darker. The organization that or gang belongs to, S.H.I.E.L.D, has always been depicted as a sort of benevolent C.I.A despite being oppressive, bureaucratic and secretive. We always knew that there must have been an other side to the organization and slowly it is being revealed as one with a very dark secret. From now until the end of...

Tatiana Maslany as Sarah in Orphan Black season 2

New Orphan Black season 2 trailer!

For some April 19th can’t come soon enough, because on that date the story of Sarah, Alison and Cosima continues as they uncover the truth about their cloning. All three characters are of course played by Tatiana Maslany who plays each with such conviction that at times I really forget all are played by one actress. I am not sure if higher praise is possible. Fans were fuming she only got a nomination at the Golden Globes. For those unaware...

Person of Interest - RAM - Kara Stanton and Mr. Reese

Person Of Interest S3Ep16 ‘RAM’ Review!

Person of Interest has managed to get itself nicely on track after the death of Detective Carter. It wasn’t that her death was necessary as she was a great character but the show had lost a lot of the momentum it had during season 1. Ever since Carter’s sacrifice old enemies and new ones as well have given PoI new impetus. One flaw that remained and which I remarked on during a previous review was that the back story of both Mr....

Almost Human - Kennex and Dorian final scene

Almost Human S1Ep13 Season Finale ‘Straw Man’ Review

After not doing a preview of this weeks episode of Almost Human I completely missed that yesterday’s episode was also its seasons finale. Almost Human is sadly one of those shows that ahs to make do a with a half season of just 13 episodes. After the partial reboot of the show after episode 9 the stakes have risen and the cliffhanger at the end of ‘Straw Man’ proofs. I will miss Almost Human, hopefully just because it’s a long...

Helix S1Ep8 ‘Bloodline’ Review!

After Jeri Ryan’s spectacular entrance as Constance Sutton, a cold-blooded corporate genocidal murderess, Helix was in need of a brief break from last weeks fast paced events. Bloodline offers this break by first concentrating on giving every character some time to deal with the latest revelations. After this has been accomplished the second part of the episode moves into a higher gear for the confrontation between Hatake and Sutton, which I can spoiler, does not disappoint. Bloodline Julia, Allan and Sarah...

A Day in the Future Chapter 8

Read the first 2 chapters of ‘A Day In The Future’!

Well, it’s Monday and the last article I wrote was the review of the seventh episode of Helix on Saturday. When I am not busy with college or work I tried to write an article every two days or so. However, Monday has been a slow news day. Sure, the two teaser trailers for Star Wars: Rebels are nice but chances are you would have already seen those before you reached my blog. The same goes for the behind the...

Helix - Survivor Zero - Jeri Ryan as Constance Sutton

Helix S1Ep7 ‘Survivor Zero’ Review

Jeri Ryan’s spectacular entrance as Constance Sutton, a Ilaria Corporation bigshot, was a welcome addition to what has been a restrictive character roll over the first 6 episodes. Her character changes the dynamics of pretty much every relationship. Suddenly Hatake does not seem to be all that bad, though his personal motivation stay unknown. Major Balleseros also knows Ms. Sutton as is evidenced by their sexual contact after she beats him up. And despite Alan’s escapades with Sarah he also...

Almost Human - Perception - Karl urban as Kennex suffering from flashbacks

Almost Human S1Ep10 ‘Perception’ Review

Last weeks episode of Almost Human practically rebooted the series and re-introduced The Syndicate as the main villains. This week’s episode ‘Perception’ also introduces new features to the show such as Detective Stahl’s genetic enhancements and Kennex’s drug addiction that was last mentioned in the pilot episode. Both this episode and that of last week make up for some of the deficiencies of the first 8 episodes, namely a future world that seemed far too shallow and little in the...

Helix - Jeri Ryan as Constance Sutton

Helix S1Ep6 ‘Aniqatiga’ Review

After the first 4 episodes Helix finally seems to have found some solid ground. The episodes have developed a certain rhythm of generating both small and large crises that led to cliffhangers and unexpected denouements. I use the word rhythm as the show hardly has any procedural aspects such as found in Almost Human or Person Of Interest. Instead the serialized nature of the plots keep reminding me of Lost. This weeks episode ‘Aniqatiga’ seems to conclude the trilogy of...

Agents of SHIELD - Skye near death

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D S1Ep13 T.R.A.C.K.S. Review!

Let me start by apologizing for being absent for almost two weeks. I was very busy for my masters degree which does have to take precedence over my love for Science-Fiction. Luckily it has been a quiet week with our favorite shows such as Almost Human, Person of Interest of course  Agents of SHIELD only returning to air this week. I can highly recommend you check out he latest Almost Human episode as it almost feels like a reboot of...

Helix - Single Strand - Man in the gas mask

Helix episode 4 ‘Single Strand’ Preview!

Next Friday the fourth episode of Helix will air. Unfortunately this episode wasn’t available on the website of Syfy Channel early like episode 3, so it will be almost two weeks since episode 3 and I am already feeling the Helix withdrawal symptoms. Episode 4 is entitled ‘Single Strand’ and seem bent on progressing the storyline beyond the first stages of the pilot and the two successor episodes as Dr. Alan Farragut and his team explore what the deadly pathogen...

The X-files to return for 6 episodes. Gillian Anderson hot in sexy lingerie.

Gillian Anderson to author Science-Fiction saga ‘EarthEnd’

The X-files has been over for more than a decade, the show was briefly back in 2008 with the movie ‘I Want To Believe’ but that has been the only sci-fi outing for co-star Gillian Anderson in recent years. We have instead had the pleasure of seeing her acting in movie such as ‘Boogie Woogie’ and shows such as ‘Hannibal’ and ‘The Fall’. However, the 45-year-old X-files alumni is set to return to her sci-fi roots in a big way. Next year...

Helix - 274 - Dr. Julia Walker (Kyra Zagorsky) approached by infected Sulamani

Helix S1Ep3 ‘274’ Review

The first two episodes of Helix that aired last week brought about some strong emotions on various comment boards. Despite both episodes receiving good reviews and praise from fans there were plenty who despaired with arguments such as ‘it isn’t as good as Lost’, ‘it’s the X-file with all the black goo’ and ‘it’s going to be like The Walking Dead’. Now is the time that I need to remind myself that comment boards are the place were 12 year olds and...
