Starfleet Academy The Edge review!

Starfleet Academy The Edge review!

Synopsis…. A new beginning – but the same old problems. Jim Kirk arrives at Starfleet Academy ready to take on whatever challenges arise. Most new beginnings mean you get to start with a clean slate, but Kirk quickly discovers that he is already infamous among his classmates. Thanks to his bravado and boasting that he’ll finish the four-year program in three, they’ve already made up their minds about kind of rival he is … and how they will beat him....

Fringe season 4 episode 2 ‘One Night in October’ review!

Fringe season 4 episode 2 ‘One Night in October’ review!

  This weeks episode of Fringe can almost together with the first episode of the season be seen as one story. This time the story plays out mostly in the mirror universe though we don’t see much of the high tech gadgets…. As for the plot…. Olivia is contacted by agent Broyles about 23 unsolved homocides, as Olivia starts to question Broyles about why she has never heard of the case he reveals that it was brought forward by Fauxlivia from...

Person of Interest episode 2 ‘Ghosts’ review!

Person of Interest episode 2 ‘Ghosts’ review!

The second episode of Person of Interest almost feels like a second pilot for the series. Not only is more background revealed but more questioned are asked, more rules are made (and broken) and the series defiantly declares that its off-beat and won’t use the machine that identifies crimes as a ‘deus ex machina’. The episode is tightly written, alot happens in the space of 45 minutes and so its going to be a long read to fully understand the plot...

Alphas Season one final ‘Original Sin’ review!

Alphas Season one final ‘Original Sin’ review!

So, the first season of Alphas is a fact. In 11 episodes that have aired so far we have seen the concept of Alphas from very familiar (X-men and other superhero concepts) to being fresh and new. We have seen dull scripts that tried to give background information on dull characters and we have seen the writers of this show trying to genuinely give a good mic of action and drama. As you might have guessed from my tone the...

Preview of ‘Terra Nova’ and ‘Alphas’.

Preview of ‘Terra Nova’ and ‘Alphas’.

Tonight fans of scifi show will have yet again a full monday line up, but it will be one of the last weeks so. First of, tonight is the final episode of the first season of Alphas. The episode is entitled ‘Orginal sin’ and the synopsis are as follows. ‘Dr.Rosen and his team must choose sides when Red Flag launches a full-out assault on the Department of Defense.’ So it would appear that Alphas will try and stay true to...

Fringe season 4 ‘Neither here nor there’ review!

Fringe season 4 ‘Neither here nor there’ review!

Fringe is back for another season. After the series started slipping in the viewer ratings Fringe producers have promised less convaluted plot lines and fewer story arcs, they are going as far as saying that season 4 will be a kind of reboot for Fringe. That is all well and good, but its not true for the first episode of season 4 entitled ‘Neither here not there’ (aptly named) as it continues the storyline of season 3 during which the...

Person of Interest Pilot review!

Person of Interest Pilot review!

The background of Person of interest has already been into quite enough, its a new scifi-crime show produced by J.J Abrams for CBS starring Michael Emerson and James Caviezel. It is intended to offer a sort of CSI kind if popularity for science but in this case not DNA/fingerprint stuff but more surveillance and computer information. The science behind it won’t be explained too much but it does appear at least a effort was made not to be too outlandish....

‘Person of interest’ debuts tonight!

‘Person of interest’ debuts tonight!

Tonight is the night, finally after Alphas we can view a another new scifi tv-show this year. However, just like Alphas Person of Interest is little light on the scifi part and more heavy on the thrill aspect. Person of interest stars Micheal Emerson as the billionaire Mr. Finch who has dveloped a computer program that can predict the identity of people that are going to be murdered. However he doesn’t get the complete picture of their identity and in...

Eureka season 4 finale “One giant leap” review!

Eureka season 4 finale “One giant leap” review!

The last episode of the fourth season of Eureka is a fact, with just one more season to go it was interesting to see if the show creators would move the show in a new direction. This episode did see the launch of Astraeus mission so that still seems to be on for the next season. The episode starts with the final preparations for the mission being made, president Obama is set to visit GD headquarters only his advance teams...

Alphas Renewed for second season!

Alphas Renewed for second season!

Sorry dear readers for having been absent for more than a week and being a bit late with the customary triad of SyFy channel reviews but college has been hell at the moment and of course takes first priority. Be sure to know that the Warehouse 13 review is still in the making but last weeks episodes of Eureka and Alphas were below par and could be rated mediocre rather of hand. Speaking of mediocre I have the duty to...

Warehouse 13 ‘Past imperfect’ review!

Warehouse 13 ‘Past imperfect’ review!

This is one of those strange episodes were Warehouse 13 tries to get all serious and against the odds it actually works. Season 2 also had such episodes though I have forgotten theor names it is nontheless a strange gambit as Warehouse 13 normally has to succeed with being goofy with its characters and clever with its artifacts. Certainly the show more often than I would like just ‘Jumps the shark’ but ehere is a thread of episodes right from...
