Daenerys walks naked out of the fire. Game Of Thrones S6Ep4 Book of the Stranger Review

Game Of Thrones S6Ep4 Book of the Stranger Review

Game Of Thrones S6Ep4 Book of the Stranger Review Most fans have a very simple classification system for Game Of Thrones. Either an episode sets up the storyline for future episodes or the episode features one those unexpected climaxes only D&D can provide. This week’s episode, “Book of the Stranger”, was both. It had reunions, revelations and changing alliances. The pacing of the sixth season feels a lot faster than what might be expected now that the series has overtaken the books....

Arthur Dayne. Game Of Thrones S6Ep3 Oathbreaker Review

Game Of Thrones S6Ep3 Oathbreaker Review!

Game Of Thrones S6Ep3 Oathbreaker Review This week’s episode, Oathbreaker, features several exciting events such as the resurrection of Jon Snow and the duel at the Tower of Joy. Yet, several of the side-plots are distinctly weak. Events at King’s Landing and Meereen are still unfolding slowly. In the meantime there has been no Baelish, Dorne or Eyrie. Read my full review here at SciFiEmpire.net. At the Wall After awakening in the previous episode, Jon Snow startles Davos by returning to live. Jon...

Michael Emerson as Harold Finch. Person Of Interest S5Ep01 B.S.O.D. Review

Person Of Interest S5Ep01 B.S.O.D. Review

Person Of Interest S5Ep01 B.S.O.D. Review 5 years ago when I started SciFiEmpire one of the first articles I wrote was a preview of Person Of Interest. I felt excited and intrigued by the idea of Lost star Michael Emerson teaming up with Jim Caviezel to fight crimes before they occurred. It helped that big names such as Jonathan Noland and Bad Robot Productions were attached. Person Of Interest has managed to make every expectation come true, and then some. To...

Jon Snow revives. Game of Thrones S6Ep2 Home Review

Game of Thrones S6Ep2 Home Review – Does Jon return?

Game of Thrones S6Ep2 Home Review The second episode season 6 starts off were the premiere ended. Just like the previous episode this one is also controversial. Yet its quality seems more consistent. Beyond the Wall Bran continuous to learn about his magical abilities from the Three-eyed Raven, played by Max von Sydow. He sees visions of Benjen and Ned Stark practicing with swords when they were boy. We get a brief glimpse of a young Lyanna Stark. Bran also discovers that...

Rebecca confronts Sands. Limitless Finale Part Two!! Review

Limitless Finale Part Two!! Review

Limitless Finale: Part Two!! Review After a season of using a drug enhancing drug that changed his life, Brian Finch finally comes full circle. This week Brian is on his last legs to uncover where Sands is hiding Piper as his immunity from NZT slowly wears of. I enjoyed ‘Finale: Part Two!!’ (yes it does have 2 exclamation marks). The episode is not without its flaws, but Limitless manages to tap into its solid drama base that it has slowly...

Varys and Tyrion walking through Meereen. Game Of Thrones S6Ep1 The Red Woman Review

Game Of Thrones S6Ep1 The Red Woman Review

Game Of Thrones S6Ep1 The Red Woman Review Finally Game Of Thrones is back for a new season. I am starting to think there was no life before this show aired. The first episode of season 6, The Red Woman, is not show’s best, but when it is good it is very good. Read my overview/reap/review to decide for yourself if you should watch this show. Though you will never convince me you aren’t already. The Wall The episode begins...

Game Of Thrones Season 6 Preview. Arthur Dayne runs through a knight.

Game Of Thrones Season 6 Preview: Who lives and who will go full-frontal?

Game Of Thrones Season 6 Preview The sixth season of Game Of Thrones is almost upon us. The big question is. Where will the show take us now that it has almost overtaken the books? For the time being that question will remain unanswered. One thing is certain, with season 6 the pace of developments will increase. I think even die hard fans have a sense that even Game Of Thrones should in the next three seasons. Season 6 may...

Just in case you think this is some sort of Harry Potter, well...

Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson Quake. Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review.

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review!

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review This episode, Spacetime, puts our favorite Agents of SHIELD right in the thick of it. A restaurant owner calls the police in a blind panic after being touched by Charles Hinton, an Inhuman. This touch gives the owner a glimpse into his own future, and his death. Because the call to the police mentions Daisy and Hydra the owner is approached by SHIELD. However, the scene unfolds just as the man says it will be....

The Flash and Supergirl.

Supergirl + The Flash crossover Worlds Finest Review

Supergirl + The Flash crossover Worlds Finest Review After watching Batman v Superman during the weekend the DC Universe is not done yet with tie-ins. Last evening Supergirl teamed up with The Flash on CBS. The result was an episode that made sense and was great fun, though it could not entirely hide the Supergirl silliness. A franchise crossover had been mulled for some time. At least two of Supergirl’s developers previously created Arrow and The Flash, both on The CW. I watch all three shows intermittently,...

Jake McDorman as Brian Finch. Limitless S1Ep19 A Dog's Breakfast Review

Limitless S1Ep19 A Dog’s Breakfast Review!

Limitless S1Ep19 A Dog’s Breakfast Review! The first season of Limitless is quickly drawing to its close. After yesterday’s episode there are just three left. Here is a quick Limitless S1Ep19 A Dog’s Breakfast Review! So Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) rejoined the FBI task force after his return from his sojourn in Russia. The inevitable consequences aren’t ignored. Naz places serious restrictions on Brian: no private office, permanent guards who babysit him everywhere he goes and an oral exam to make sure he swallows the NZT...

Joan watches Everyone take clothes off. Elementary S4Ep17

Elementary S4Ep17 You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? Review

Elementary S4Ep17 You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? Review After a hiatus I thought it good again to review an episode of Elementary. This week the show has been moved to its new time-slot on Sunday evening. The reason given is that it will give a better lead into Sunday drama’s. We shall see. In You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? we finally see more development on Sherlock’s investigation into his father, though it is the killer-of-the-week story that makes up...

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...
