Fringe’s Future + Anna Torv set photos!

Fringe’s Future + Anna Torv set photos!

In an interview with website givememyremote.com executive producer Jeff Pinkner discusses tonight’s episode ‘Welcome to Westfield’, the love triangle between Olivia, Peter and Lincoln and the future of the series. According to Pinkner tonight’s episode is most definitely not a ‘bottle show’ and fans will really like it (well that alright then). As far as the love triangle goes Pinker admits that this Olivia is not the same Olivia from before the time shift and as for any relation between Peter and Olivia he said ‘there are bumps in the road’. As for the future of the show Pinker says it has a...

Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray sampler disk Review!

Star Trek: The Next Generation Blu-ray sampler disk Review!

Finally I have managed to get round writing a review on the Blu-ray sampler disk of the High-def transfer of Star Trek The Next Generation. This disk contains three episodes including the double episode Encounter at Farpoint, Sins of the Father and The Inner Light. The review of this disk is based on Encounter at Farpoint (the other two episodes will be reviewed during the coming week) and I must state that not only is the detail gorgeous but it puts the DVD transfer to shame (luckily I didn’t buy it). This transfer makes the series look a decade younger than it is with special...

Fringe ‘Welcome to Westfield’ Preview!

Fringe ‘Welcome to Westfield’ Preview!

Next weeks episode of Fringe is entitled ‘Welcome to Westfield’, a title that I believe is an homage to the Half Life 2 level ‘We don’t go to Ravenholm’. Here is the press release… THE FRINGE TEAM GETS TRAPPED ON AN ALL-NEW “FRINGE” FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10, ON FOX Peter, Olivia and Walter come face to face with a mysterious and terrifying Fringe event as they get trapped in a town that there’s no escaping from in the all-new “Welcome to Westfield” episode of FRINGE airing Friday, Feb. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Fringe ‘Making Angels’ Review!

Fringe ‘Making Angels’ Review!

This weeks episode of Fringe was highly anticipated by fans as it was the first Astrid-centric episode. The episode was a slight disappointment as the issues surrounding the alternate Astrid weren’t all that clear. The main storyline of the murderer who tried to save people from a terrible future also fell a little flat, and for a reason that kind of mystified me. As for the story… This weeks episode is called ‘Making Angels’ and is a reference to the main antagonist named Neill (played by Chin Han from The Dark Knight) who can see into the future after he has taken...

Fringe ‘Making Angels’ preview! Finally a Astrid-centric episode!

Fringe ‘Making Angels’ preview! Finally a Astrid-centric episode!

This weeks episode of Fringe is entitled ‘Making Angels’ and will feature agent Astrid Farnsworth (A.K.A Astro) as its centric character. Astrid is of course played by actress Jasika Nicole whose role on the show has always been a fan favorite but has been until now that of the eternal supporting character. So what is in store now for Fringe? A Nina-centric episode? What about Broyles? Perhaps we might even see more of their relationship. This episode is definitely designed to give the series more life and deal with its minor quirks, and I aint complaining. The murder case that this episode will be...

Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Brinkmanship Announced!

Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Brinkmanship Announced!

Yet another Typhon pact novel has been announced by Simon and Schuster, Brinkmanship will be written by Una McCormack who wrote such novels as Hollow Men and The Never Ending Sacrifice, both were featured the Cardassians and so its a good bet this novel will too! Brinkmanship is scheduled for a September 25th release, stay tuned!  

Encounter at Farpoint - bridge crew.

The Next Generation Blu-ray season 1 trailer

Tomorrow the sampler disk of TNG will be released on Blu-ray, expect a review the day after. For now we will have to do with the first trailer of Season 1 which is to be released sometime this year (I expect in the spring), and I must say that the moving images look even better than the stills that have been released so far. The crispness is just awesome. From this trailer we can also deduce that CBS is making new bonus material to go with the disk. So far no word on any extended footage being included buzz there has been some buzz about including footage...

Fringe ‘Forced Perspective’ review!

Fringe ‘Forced Perspective’ review!

This weeks episode of Fringe is entitled ‘Forced Perspective’ and is a change of pace as it only deals with the mythology in the secondary plot and focuses instead on a more drama laden plot of a girl who sees flashes of people dying. With Fringe the mythology plots are often interrupted to give us a ‘monster of the week’ episode which are often a ‘hit or miss’ affaire. This weeks episode lies somewhere in the middle because despite it having en engrossing storyline it is at times rather slow, also the fact that last week’s saw the return of David...

Person of Interest ‘Root Cause’ preview!

Person of Interest ‘Root Cause’ preview!

Tonight there won’t be an episode of Person of Interest airing, instead we will have to wait until next Thursday for the episode ‘Root Cause’. Next weeks episode sees the return of Zoe (The Fixer) which I think is great as this show could do with more recurring characters and sh and Reese made a wonderful combination. Here is the press release… BAD LUCK MAY HAVE PUSHED REESE AND FINCH’S LATEST POI TOO FAR, ON “PERSON OF INTEREST,” THURSDAY, FEB. 2 Paige Turco (“Damages”) Returns as Zoe, the Fixer “Root Cause” – Reese and Finch’s latest POI is a down-on-his-luck man who...

Fringe ‘Forced Perspective’ Preview!

Fringe ‘Forced Perspective’ Preview!

Friday’s episode of Fringe is called ‘Forced Perspective’ and sees the return of the Observers who warn Olivia of her impending death. The episode does seem to have rather familiar elements, I hope it will manage to beat expectations otherwise Fringe will be back on its rating offramp. Here is the full press release… A MYSTERIOUS GIRL CAN SEE THE FUTURE ON AN ALL-NEW “FRINGE” FRIDAY, JANUARY 27, ON FOX Olivia continues to cope with the ominous warning from the Observers, while Peter and the team track a girl with the mysterious ability to predict death in the all-new “Forced...

Alcatraz ‘Kit Nelson’ Review!

Alcatraz ‘Kit Nelson’ Review!

This weeks episode of Alcatraz was a definite mixed bag, on the one hand the creepiness factor was very high but on the other hand the action was boring. Also there was a factor of déjà vu, like I had already seen the episode. Some of the character development seemed forced and I have started to believe that Sam Neill’s character might actually be some sort of villain, he certainly behaves in a narcissistic way. The character of Rebecca Madsen might have stayed at home as she hardly had anything to do but tie herself up to a car, this episode could have ended...

TNG Season 1 box art + Sampler disk screencaps!

TNG Season 1 box art + Sampler disk screencaps!

Little more than a week stands in the way of seeing what TNG looks like on Blu-ray disk, some early reviews have come out and are certainly positive. Now, to keep the ball rolling Paramount has released the box art for the first season which as of yet has no release date. The classic retro look of the box art is certainly to my taste. As bonus I have included three more screen caps from the sampler disk, one of each episode featured so you can get a better idea of the overall quality. To my surprise the quality of...

Fringe ‘Enemy of my enemy’ review!

Fringe ‘Enemy of my enemy’ review!

This weeks episode of Fringe sees the return of David Robert Jones which raises the boiling point in a way that seems like he never left. The plot this time makes my head spin and frankly that is what I am looking for in a Fringe episode. As for the story… Following from “Back to Where You’ve Never Been“, the alternate universe’s Olivia (Anna Torv) and Lincoln (Seth Gabel) track down David Robert Jones (Jared Harris) to a warehouse, unaware that Colonel Broyles (Lance Reddick) had alerted Jones to their arrival. Jones waits until Olivia and Lincoln arrive before destroying...

Alcatraz ‘Kit Nelson’ preview!

Alcatraz ‘Kit Nelson’ preview!

Next monday we will see the third episode of Alcatraz which will give us an impression how well this show will handle itself once it is established. The title refers to a child-kidnapper who has the macabre trait of returning his victims to their home. If there is one thing I learnt from the first two episodes is that this show is not afraid to pull punches. Here is the promo trailer… Here is the press release. A TERRIFYING PRISONER COMES BACK TO KILL, ON AN ALL-NEW “ALCATRAZ” When child killer Kit Nelson, a terrifying kidnapper who always returns his...

Alcatraz ‘Ernest Cobb’ review!

Alcatraz ‘Ernest Cobb’ review!

Last Monday a second episode of Alcatraz aired after the Pilot, personally I think this was done because the Pilot which had to explain a lot of background information was a bit too slow. ‘Ernest Cobb’ was definitely better though some mistakes from the Pilot persisted and the episode made a few of its own. As for the story… The episode starts with Alcatraz inmate named Ernest Cobb being introduced to Chief Warden Edwin James, who asks Cobb why he has shot a warden at another prison in the leg. Cobb answers by saying ‘I want my own private cel’....
