Continuum S2E9 ‘Seconds’ Review!

Mere seconds to boredom… For those who have kept up with reading Continuum episode reviews know that I think season 2 has been a let down. Sure some episodes were great but the series suffers with its poor drama and plot twists that are all over the map. This weeks episode entitled ‘Seconds’ is pretty much at the bottom of the pile. It starts on the wrong footing by pretending that the excellent episode 8 never occurred. No reference is made...

SciFiEmpire.net celebrates it’s 2nd anniversary!

SciFiEmpire Two years ago today I decided to make the big plunge and sign up for a website with a hosting company. For the most part I just wanted to vent my opinion on all matters science fiction, ranging from TV-shows, movies and novels that came about while my own writing career kind off passed by slowly. Strangely enough, writing a blog is easier and harder than I assumed it would be. The hardest part is keeping discipline to write something....

Star Trek The Next Generation Season 5 Cover Blu-ray

Star Trek TNG season 5 Blu-ray cover revealed!

Star Trek TNG season 5 Blu-ray cover revealed! The season 4 Blu-ray disc set for TNG isn’t even out yet (scheduled for July 30th) yet CBS Home Entertainment is already promoting the shows 5th season! They have released the cover and a promotional trailer for what is probably the shows best season. Season 5 is of course famous for its Picard oriented episode ‘The Inner Light’ which I previously mistakenly attributed to season 4. My personal favorite is the two-part arc...

Stahma Tarr (Jaime Murray) - Defiance

Defiance ‘The Bride Wore black’ Review!

The first season of Defiance is almost over. After yesterday’s episode ‘The Bride Wore Black’ there are just two more to go. Fans won’t have to be afraid of a cancellation as the second season has already been confirmed. The question is whether another season is warranted? Well, I say it is…. Slowly, yes just slowly… Defiance is managing to build itself up into a show with the right amount of intrigue, action and humor. ‘The Bride Wore black’ This episode deals...

Continuum renew for shortened 4th season! Luvia Petersen nude as Jasmine Garza

Continuum season 2 episode 8 ‘Second Listen’ Review!

Second Listen… So far everyone has been a bit underwhelmed by the second season. Sure there have been a number of ups (Travis decapitating organized crime bosses) but for the most part the plots feel disjointed and ill though out. This weeks episode ‘Second Listen’ is by far a more steady episode and sets the beginning for the season to conclude in a spectacular fashion. Plot outline… Kiera’s suspicions, confirmed finally; there were time jumpers before she and Liber8 came to the...

Continuum gets renewed for third season!

A third season… That Continuum is getting renewed for a third season is a bit of surprise as the second season took a while to get confirmed. I must say that I have lost just a bit of excitement for Continuum as its second season is a bit of a mess. The quality is all over the map and though I am a devoted viewer I have lost track of many developments. In part I think the show creative staff are...

Defiance episode 7 ‘Goodbye, Blue Sky’ Review!

Goodbye, Blue Sky. Finally we get an episode of Defiance that isn’t afraid of pulling some punches. It certainly isn’t unusual that TV-Series shy away from radical decisions in their first season without knowing what the fans like but some of Defiance’s earlier episodes were borderline boring. They were in essence self-contained stories that did little to further the Defiance overall story arc or give the show its own flavor. This week’s episode, ‘Goodbye, Blue Sky’, might even have moved too fast. For most...

Tracy Spiridakos as Charlie in Revolution

Revolution season 1 finale ‘The Dark Tower’ Review!

The finale. And so the first season of Revolution has ended. To many it should be it’s only season but we will be getting another one at the end of the year. I have not yet decided whether Revolution deserves a reprieve as it is very rough and certainly not all diamond underneath. The season finale ‘The Dark Tower’ tries its best to make up for all the mistake and give viewers a reason to tune back in this fall and for...

Liev Schreiber in Last Days on Mars

Last days on Mars preview + trailer!

Last Days on Mars… The genre of Science-fiction thriller defined by movies such as Alien and The Thing has been considered dead for well over two decades. It quickly become the domain of cheap B-movies or senselessly epic action movies. True thrillers with a good dose of science that take place on another plant or space station were hard to come by. However, ever since Duncan Jones’s Moon from 2009 the genre is again alive and kicking. Fans can look forward to...

Elizabeth Mitchell as Rachel Matheson talking to Monroe - Revolution

Revolution S1 episode 18 ‘Children of Men’ Review!

Revolution has been a in a dark place for some episodes now. At first the second half of season 1 saw some good improvements but quickly episodes started stalling and make impossible leaps in character development. The low point was when Monroe’s right hand man Jeremy Baker (Mark Pellegrino) was killed off. Last weeks episode was a bit of an improvement but it still forced Charlie and Miles in particular to fly in a helicopter they had stolen in order to...

Dillon's replacement - Continuum

Continuum S2Ep5 ‘Second Opinion’ Review!

Continuum is back from a two-week hiatus. The episode before the break (Second Skin) was probably the low point in the series so far. Alas this weeks episode entitled ‘Second Opinion’ is better but not very exciting. It feels a bit like a bottle show in that there few special effects or action scenes. However, this is made up by the drama which at least allows the character Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) express repressed sentiments that gave her a bit of...

Enterprise season 2 Blu-ray arrives August 20th!

Enterprise season 2 Blu-ray arrives August 20th!

Now that Star Trek Into Darkness has hit the cinema’s there is almost a Star Trek craze that I feel wasn’t there 4 years ago. That said, Star Trek Into Darkness has received some mixed reviews that seem to have repercussions for its box-office earnings. Generally there is a feeling that the plot is a bit bloated in some areas while the character development is minimal. None of that matters when Enterprise season 2 finally comes to Blu-ray on august...

Warehouse 13 S4E14 ‘The Sky’s the Limit’ Review!

Warehouse 13 S4E14 ‘The Sky’s the Limit’ Review!

Warehouse 13 has been back for its second half of season 4 for two episodes now. Honestly, the series had kind of popped off my radar screen as Defiance, Continuum and Revolution are also on. To make matters worse, the first episode was one very big dud. However, last’s weeks episode ‘The Big Snag’ was one of the more enjoyable outings as Pete and Myka found themselves locked into 1940’s crime novel. The quality of the production was definitely noteworthy....

Star Trek Into Darkness Review!

Star Trek Into Darkness Review!

Finally I have been able to see Star Trek Into Darkness in at the cinema. If it wasn’t just only for the fact that I am a veritable Trekkie that I wanted to see it but also to finally be able to put aside the continuous promotion of the movie that has gone on for weeks now. Star Trek Into Darkness is of course J.J. Abrams second Star Trek outing. It acts as a sequel to the 2009 movie that significantly raised...
