Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron in 2077 - Continuum Second Guess

Continuum S2Ep11 Second Guess Review!

Another episode of Continuum has aired so we are up for another review. Just like last week’s episode we had another strong showing this week. It did not make the mistake of introducing too much drama and yet it addressed many issues that had bugged fans of the show for some time. It’s only downside is that it brings back plot points that have long been forgotten and so at times it can be a little bit confusing. Second Guess The episode...

Revolution season 2 trailer from Comic-Con!

The Comic-Con bliss continues with NBC releasing a lengthy preview trailer of Revolution’s second season. The trailer starts as so many before it with a brief recap of events of the first season. Then it shows the rather disheartening moments after Randall Flynn launches the ICBM’s at Philadelphia and Atlanta. It would seem that Aaron’s attempt at switching off the electricity to shut down the missiles will be in vain. That much has already been revealed by other sources. The trailer...

Haven Banner Syfy

Haven Season 4 Comic-Con Trailer!

As could be expected, Syfy took the opportunity to promote their flagship fantasy thriller Haven at this years Comic-Con. The lengthy trailer below at first just shows scenes that led up to the third season finale but eventually we get to see some new footage as well. What is clear is that our beloved group of characters are essentially split up. The half that stayed  behind will be joined by Colin Ferguson (Eureka) while those that went into the barn (Audrey and Duke et al.)...

Piper Perabo as Annie Walker - Covert Affairs season 4 Vamos

Covert Affairs season 4 premiere ‘Vamos’ Review!

Going Covert When it comes to sci-fi TV-shows we have hit the summer dry-spell. Only Continuum is on and I don’t care much for either Falling Skies or Under The Dome. As some reader may know I sometimes review other TV-shows as well. I have done Haven and Elementary. The latter mostly because I am a big Sherlock (Holmes) fan and I really dig Lucy Liu. I am also a big fan of the spy-craft genre and Covert Affairs is...

Travis using his CMR - Continuum Second Wave

Continuum S2Ep10 ‘Second Wave’ Review!

Second Wave After this weeks 10th episode of Continuum’s second season there will only be 3 more left until the season ends. So far the season has been pretty much a roller-coaster ride when it comes to plot development and quality. Luckily this weeks episode seems to set the stage for the seasons inevitable conclusion and it does this well. Kiera (Rachel Nichols) manages to capture Garza (Luvia Petersen) with Alec’s new Arc program that pretty much sucks in all real-time data...

Defiance - Stahma (Jaime Murray) - the poison is on the flask

Defiance season finale ‘Everything is Broken’ review

The first season finale of Defiance is entitled ‘Everything is Broken’ and that is a understatement. Plenty of characters are killed off and almost everybody’s world is turned over. Some people might hate the episode, but I think most will love it. It’s a show that has only slowly begun developing a pair of balls. The plot Nolan and Tommy continue their search for Irisa, who has disappeared. At the voting polls for the election Kenya suggests to Datak that Stahma has...

Kate Kelton as Jordan McKee - Haven - Thanks for the Memories

Haven season 4 promo released

Haven Last year I tucked into the third season of Haven and found the show a lot better than expected. I immediately watched the first two seasons as well and agreed with every fan that the third season was an incredible improvement. There were still some caveats though. The creative staff couldn’t keep up with the quality in the second half of the season, mostly due to budget issues would be my guess. Women The show also had a bit of a...

Old Julian Randol - Richard Harmon - Continuum

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...

Rachel Nichols as Kiera in a gunfight - Continuum - Second Thoughts

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...
