Detective Carter (Taraji P. Henson) following Price - Person of Interest

Person of Interest S3Ep7 ‘The Perfect Mark’ Review!

Once in a while Person of Interest manages to shine with a non-mythology episodes. It doesn’t happened often but it does happen. What also sets this episode apart is the resolution of the Carter/Laskey plot. The resolution comes in a cold and swift fashion that is familiar to PoI. Though it may have come too soon. The Perfect Mark In this weeks episode a con man name Hayden Price is the Person of Interest. Despite resorting to some very dirty tricks Finch (Michael Emerson) believes him...

Babylon 5 + The Wachowski’s = Holy Shit!

Fans of Babylon 5 and The Matrix (ooh common, there must be overlap) have something to look forward to. Apparently Netflix have brought Babylon 5 creator J. Straczynski and the Wachowski siblings together for a previously unknown series entitled ‘Sense8’. Netflix has already blessed the series with a full first season of episodes, so there is some serious stuff going on. it is not entirely clear what genre Sense8 will be. Though the title refers tot he word sensate which means...

Monroe (David Lyons) and Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos) finally make it to Willoughby - Revolution

Revolution S2Ep5 ‘One Riot, One Ranger’ Review!

Revolution seems to be on a winning streak as of late. I personally had my doubts whether the ‘patriots’ would be any good as antagonists but so far season 2 has not disappointed. This weeks episode ‘One Riot, One Ranger’ is very effective in increasing both the scope of the Revolution’s universe as well as in furthering the character storylines. Just as in previous weeks I will deal with each group of characters separately. Though when I say group it is down...

Almost Human - Karl Urban and Michael Ealy - www.scifiempire.net

Almost Human trailer shows it could be this falls hottest show

I for a while mourned the loss of Fringe. With hard-core sci-fi shows dropping like flies Fringe acted as a real backbone of TV. Sadly it was still a troubled show when its fourth season lost direction and its fifth being a snooze fest. Now viewers can look forward to ‘Almost Human’ created by J.H Wyman, the show runner of Fringe. ‘Almost Human’ will also be aired on FOX just like Fringe. Though it originally was supposed to start on November 4th it has...

Sleepy Hollow - Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane & Nicole Beharie as Abbie Mills

Whats wrong with TV these days?

This week was hardly a good week for TV. It was worse than last week which itself was already mediocre. It can be that we are spoiled with too many good TV shows and we are expecting to be confronted with cliffhangers and denouements every episode. It does seem that after the initial excitement of new TV-series and seasons we have entered a bit of a rut. That said, some new shows such as Sleepy Hollow will need to try hard to keep viewers...

Star Trek TNG season 5 & Unification Blu-ray covers

Star Trek TNG & Enterprise Blu-ray release update

Star Trek TNG & Enterprise Blu-ray release update During the last year or so we have been spoiled with TNG and Enterprise Blu-ray releases. Finally being able to see them in HD has certainly altered their experience for fans. Enterprise officially already had a HD release in the iTunes store but in my opinion the experience is enhanced by viewing it on a proper HDTV. Now fans can look forward to Enterprise season 3 on Blu-ray which will be released January 7th. That is a...

Revolution - Monroe & Charlie riding to Willoughby

Revolution S2Ep4 ‘Patriot Games’ review!

After a good start to its second season Revolution takes a break with an episode that doesn’t really move the story forward much but instead sets the stage for further development. The good thing about ‘Patriot Games’ is that we get answers to a number of vital questions at the cost of a story that at times just doesn’t want to move forward. Just like past episodes of season 2 I will briefly recap the developments of each storyline. Charlie &...

Person of Interest - Jim Caviezel as Mr. Reese in Reasonable Doubt

Person of Interest S3Ep4 ‘Reasonable Doubt’ review!

This weeks episode of Person of Interest reminds of the episode ‘Mission Creep’ from the beginning of season 1. Sadly the remembrance gives this episode the feeling that it is a rehash. Again we are following a PoI who is capable of staying out the hands of organized crime, the police and as well as our team consisting of Mr. Reese, Mr. Finch and Mrs. Shaw. this episode puts in an extra flair of ‘The Fugitive’ as we are tracking District...

Lucy Liu as Joan Watson in Elementary - Lucy Liu long legs

Elementary S3Ep3 ‘We Are Everyone’ review!

This weeks episode of Elementary gave me mixed feelings, not because it was a so-so episode (it was in fact great) but because the suspect of the week suddenly turned from a would-be hero into a villain and for both roles he lacked a motivation. The story of ‘We Are Everyone’ is inspired by the rise hacktivists such as Assange, Manning and Snowden. The fact that the suspect of the week seems inhabit traits from all three applause should have to...

Tracy Spiridakos as Charlie Matheson - Revolution

Revolution S2Ep3 ‘Love Story’ Review

With this weeks episode, ‘Love Story’, Revolution continues to improve in quality. The show keeps handing out some hard punches but at the cost of a very fast past that sadly causes us to lose a character that was only recently introduced. As explained in the review of the previous episode Revolution has now been divided into three main storylines. I will briefly explain the events of all three. Rachel, Miles and Aaron; this is still the ‘main’ storyline. Last week Aaron got resurrected...

Sarah Shahi, Taraji P. Henson dressing up for nightclub in leather skirt - Person of Interest

Person of Interest S3Ep3 ‘Lady Killer’ Review

Person of Interest is a great show but once in a while you get a real stinker of an episode. I remember one or two from both earlier seasons but this episode is pretty much the lamest ever. I don’t think the creative staff purposefully set out to make a bad episode (why would they) but they certainly had the idea to bring in a serious element of drama that just falls completely flat. They went wrong when it became...

Giancarlo Esposito in Revolution season 2 as Tom Neville

Revolution S2Ep2 ‘There Will Be Blood’ Review

Revolution is one of those shows that everyone at times seems to love to hate. Season 1 for that matter got a lot of flak. Despite being a Bad Robot productions series it hardly lived up to the quality of other shows such as Lost, Fringe and Person of Interest. Instead it came closer to Alcatraz in that it wasn’t bad but it felt rushed. Revolution certainly does feel rushed, or at least its first season did. I myself wasn’t a Charlie hater...

Lucy Liu short skirt as Watson Elementary Step Nine

Elementary season 2 premiere ‘Step Nine’ review!

I thoroughly enjoyed the first season of Elementary starring Johnny Lee Miller (Hackers) and Lucy Liu. However, the rather early dénouement of the Moriarty/Irene Adler storyline left a slight bitter aftertaste. I was thus not looking forward to hearing anything about during season 2. Luckily the first episode primarily takes part in London and makes for a very refreshing start to the new season. It’s quite invigorating if I may take a line from Sherlock. ‘Step Nine’ starts with Holmes...

Clark Gregg as agent Coulson - Agents of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD ‘Pilot’ Review!

One of the first things I was wondering about at the start of the pilot of ‘Agents of SHIELD’ was which character the show would focus on. Sure, agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) has certainly gotten most of the fans attention but it became clear quite quickly that an aura of mystery would surround him and his resurrection for a very long time. Instead we have an ensemble of other characters such as agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), a former black ops specialist who seems to...
