Continuum renewed for shortened 4th season!

Continuum renewed for shortened 4th season It appears that December is the new August, not November! Finally fans of Syfy’s Continuum (actually Showcase’s) starring Rachel Nichols can rejoice with knowledge the show will be extended. However, its fourth season will also be its last and it will only be 6 episodes long. Just enough to roundup the storyline I suppose. Rachel Nichols has already confirmed the news on Twitter. She stated the following “Yes, the words LAST SEASON and ONLY...

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu Ray

While attempting to keep an eye on all the presents I want to buy for other people this holiday season I almost forgot Star Trek has several big releases. Most notably the last season of Star Trek The Next Generation has been released on Blu-ray. You can now watch Picard, Troi, Worf and the other one last time in 1080p. Or you can watch it as often as you like afterwards. Today I stumbled upon the box set by chance....

Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer pose for 2015 Acting Outlaws Calendar

Since 2013 Actresses Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer have made a charity calendar to raise funds for a good cause. Both actresses are of course famous from the Battlestar Galactica remake of 2003. On RedBubble as well as the website of their charity, Acting Outlaws, you can now buy the calendar for the sum of 36.07 euro’s. I think it is well worth it. Their poses aren’t too revealing and seem to harken back to classic pin-up photography. This year alone...

Agent 33 twisted face - Agents of SHIELD S2Ep9 Ye Who Enter Here Review

Agents of SHIELD S2Ep9 Ye Who Enter Here Review

This week’s episode of Agents of SHIELD, “…Ye Who Enter Here”, is the prelude to mid-season finale set to air December 9th. While most other shows have already gone into their hiatus SHIELD goes on, and it is going strong. Gone are those murky episode from season 1 you just loved to hate. I read some other reviews of this episode on the web and I am astonished at some of the criticism. Most reviewers seem fixated on little quirks...

Katia Winter in corset as Katrina Crane - Sleepy Hollow S2Ep11 The Akeda Review

Sleepy Hollow S2Ep11 The Akeda Review

The first half of Sleepy Hollow’s second season has ended on a high mark. For those who have read some of my reviews of the first season will know I criticized the uneven quality of the show. For the most part that has been fixed during season 2. Furthermore the cast has been extended to include Matt Barr as Nick Horley while John Noble and Neil Jackson have become regulars. All this does mean Sleepy Hollow had to take its time to work...

Scarface played by David Valcin. Person of Interest S4Ep9 The Devil You Know Review

Person of Interest S4Ep9 The Devil You Know Review

Invictus Maneo It is strange that this episode of Person of Interest had so many one-liners. It makes it hard to choose a suitable subtitle. Would it be ‘there is always a way out’? Reese (Jim Caviezel) would have liked that. Or Dominic’s line ‘the game within a game’, but that sounds too much like a tagline from a Frank Herbert book. Both Elias and his right-hand man Scarface (real name Anthony) used the Latin phrase Invictus Maneo which means ‘I remain Unvanquished’. For...

The Inquisitor recieving information. Star Wars Rebels Gathering Forces Review

Star Wars Rebels Gathering Forces Review

I thought it time to write a review of Star Wars Rebels, the new Star Wars animated series that replaces The Clone Wars. After the pilot and the subsequent 7 episodes I have come to like this show. The 22 minute duration makes it snappy if a bit short. The humor is top-notch but the series is not afraid to show a darker side either. It’s not like it got much of a choice after previous series. I think Rebels has the...

Michio Kaku with equations. Michio Kaku to host Cosmos season 2

Michio Kaku to host Cosmos season 2

Michio Kaku to host Cosmos season 2 If during the spring you also enjoyed Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey take comfort that a second season is in production. The reboot of Cosmos was of course based on the original show hosted by Carl Sagan in 1980. As Carl died in 1996 the new show was hosted by his disciple astrophysicist/science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson. Alas Neil won’t reappear for season 2. In an interview with the Tribune he cites his long absence from...

William Shatner joins Haven

William Shatner joins Haven

William Shatner joins Haven I used to put up the odd review of Haven every now and then. It mostly depended on whether an episode was any good. Quite frankly the last really good episode was the finale of season 3. Afterwards, too many mysteries were solved to my disappointment and too many secondary characters were killed off. Now during its fifth season the show has been hurting due to negative fan backlash. The ratings have also steadily dropped. That may change with...

Bear with grende belt. Person of Interest Point of Origin Review

Person of Interest Point of Origin Review

Person of Interest ‘Point of Origin” ended on a serious cliffhanger. Dominic, the leader of The Brotherhood, finally decided it is time to kill both Elias and ‘Riley’. Also Decima’s assassin and Greer’s number two Martine managed to catch up with Shaw. Both events mean that next week’s episode ‘The Devil You Know’ will be a real game-changer. Such a change of events has been hinted ever since the season’s première and is something that has been carefully worked towards. Sadly, this...

Carol and Daryl (Norman Reedus) about to be pushed over - The Walking Dead S5Ep6 Consumed Review

The Walking Dead S5Ep6 Consumed Review

The Walking Dead S5Ep6 Consumed Review With the episode ‘Consumed’ TWD fills in the gap of the timeline. It depicts events between Carol and Daryl setting off to find Beth and when Daryl returned to the church. I feel pretty stupid that I forgot that Beth helped Noah escape from the hospital. So it is no surprise who Daryl took with him on his way back. As we have also seen a wounded Carol being helped into the same hospital we...

Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) in bed with Andrew Mittal - Elementary Just a Regular Irregular Review

Elementary Just a Regular Irregular Review

This weeks episode of Elementary entitled ‘Just a Regular Irregular’ starts off just as you would expect. Consulting mathematician Harlan Emple discovers a body stuffed in a storage box after he arrives at a warehouse. He discovered the place following various math puzzles. The unusual circumstances of the murder might seem just right for an episode of Elementary. And though I have no doubt it would be good otherwise it turns out to be a great episode because at its center it...

Sunil Bakshi played by Simon Kassianides (For Coulson) - Agents of SHIELD The Writing on the Wall Review

Agents of SHIELD The Writing on the Wall Review

This weeks episode Agent Of SHIELD proves that the show can succeed if it dares to offer genuine character development through drama. As both Coulson and Ward are confronted by personal demons they show they are still the core two characters of SHIELD. For me ‘Writing on the Wall’ has been my favorite season episode so far and I must say Agent of SHIELD is becoming an appreciated show next to my Tuesday dose of Person Of Interest. As for this episode. I...

Alan Fitch (Alan Alda) with collar bomb - The Blacklist mid-season finale The Decembrist Review

The Blacklist mid-season finale The Decembrist Review

The Blacklist has finally reached the halfway mark of its second season. I must say that so far season 2 has hardly been outstanding, it has been good, but not yet great. This episode entitled The Decembrist molds both the good and bad into, well a good episode that will have many fans questioning if the show can sustain itself in the long run. The Blacklist mid-season finale… The episode starts with Reddington confronting Berlin about the person who set them...
