Continuum ‘A Test of Time’ Review!

Continuum ‘A Test of Time’ Review!

After four episodes where Continuum has managed to assert itself as the thrilling, clever sci-fi show that it is we now have the first episode, entitled ‘A Test Of Time’, in which its boundaries are explored. One of the earliest questions raised about the concept behind Continuum was the so-called ‘Time Paradox’ or grandfather paradox. What happens if you travel back in time and kill your grandfather? Do you see to exist as well? This episode as did the previous...

Continuum “A Test of Time” Preview!

The next episode of Continuum starring Rachel Nichols is entitled A Test Of Time and will air on June 24th. The last episode of Continuum was quite good but ratings have been in steady decline since the shows pilot and I dare say it is already in the danger zone. Here is the promo video for …A Test of Time’… Here is the synopsis… Kagame’s return begins with a reset of Liber8’s agenda, away from violence and towards blending into the...

Starfleet Academy The Assassination Game cover revealed!

After less than a week to go until its supposed June 26th release date publishers Simon & Schuster have finally revealed the cover of the fourth installment in The Starfleet Academy young adult novel series. Book 4 is entitled The Assassination game and is written by Alan Gratz. So far, I have reviewed all earlier novels in the series and I must say I am looking forward to this one. And even though the plots seems to have elements from the 1980’s movie Gotcha it...

Continuum “Matter of Time” Review!

Continuum “Matter of Time” Review!

Continuum’s fourth episode is entitled ‘Matter of Time’ and is in my opinion on par with the quality experienced from the first episode. This episode also sees the return of Tony Amendola as Edouard Kagame, the leader of terrorist group Liber8. As for the plot of ‘Matter of Time’… The episode opens with a flash forward to the 2077 time period, Kiera’s husband Greg has just gotten promoted when a terrorist attack takes out the city power supply, boasting that...

Continuum “Wasting Time” Review!

Continuum “Wasting Time” Review!

Welcome to Continuum’s “Wasting Time” review starring Rachel Nichols. “Wasting Time” is the third episode of Showcase’s new sci-fi series Continuum, unfortunately the third episode was of less quality than the first two so I delayed writing a review of this episode. As for this review, it won’t be too long because even though I think the episode is good I am not going to spoiler too much. Wasting Time essentially starts were the previous episode left off. Kiera has...

Tron: Uprising Pilot “Beck’s Beginning” Review!

Tron: Uprising Pilot “Beck’s Beginning” Review!

Tron Uprising is an animated sci-fi series made for Disney XD. In essence it is meant to continue the Tron franchise after the 2010 release of Tron Legacy which was itself a sequel to the 1982 movie Tron made by Steven Lisberger. Tron Legacy was however only a mediocre success financially, there has been a buzz for a third movie but they have been weak. Tron Uprising was already announced before Tron Legacy got released so I guess Disney decided to continue with...

Continuum “Fast Times” Review!

Continuum “Fast Times” Review!

The second episode of Showcase’s new sci-fi show Continuum is entitled “Fast Times”, it seems that from the shows wiki-page that all episodes of the first season will be plays on the word time. Though there appears to be little connection with the title and the context of the episodes. The same goes for “Fast Times”. This episode continues where the pilot left off but it also makes some slight changes to the format, this isn’t unusual as a pilot must really...

Continuum ‘Fast Times’ Preview!

Continuum ‘Fast Times’ Preview!

Sunday the second episode of Continuum will air, and from what I have seen of the trailer (see below) and the synopsis is that this series is not planning on settling in and churning out 24-episode seasons for seven years but st instead seems hellbent on twisting and turning with the concept of time-travel. I just like it when some creative producer decides to screw with everybody’s heads. Well if that isn’t a ringing endorsement to go see the second episode then I don’t know...

Continuum “A Stitch in Time” Pilot Review!

Continuum “A Stitch in Time” Pilot Review!

Continuum continues where shows like Stargate, Fringe, The X-files, Sliders, Alcatraz and Total Recall 2070 went before it with principal filming being done in Vancouver, unlike the other shows it is also set in Vancouver, both in the year 2077 and in 2012. Continuum has however kind of slipped under the radar. Even though I first heard of it last summer I had totally forgotten about it until the day it aired. That said it was only aired in Canada, the...

Person of Interest ‘Firewall’ Season Finale Review!

Person of Interest ‘Firewall’ Season Finale Review!

Finally after 23 episodes has the incredible first season of Person of Interest come to a finish, next to series like Nikita and The Walking Dead there is no series like it and it certainly is the best new series of this moment. This show fantastic because just like series such as 24 and Nikita it is able to deliver high quality production along with daring plot development, the shows creators are certainly not afraid to pull some punches. Jim...

New Total Recall movie stills!

New Total Recall movie stills!

Thanks to Sony Pictures we can enjoy 7 new stills from Len Wiseman’s adoption of Total Recall, the movie stars Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel. So far the buzz surrounding this movie has been low, not helped by the action packed trailer which gave the impression that a Philip K. Dick’s original story was once again abused for its title only. The movie is scheduled for an august 3 release date!

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ Part 2 Review!

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ Part 2 Review!

After 22 episodes the fourth season of Fringe is sadly over, though it wasn’t the best season it was still great. For some there was a fear that Fringe might get canceled but as looks like now Fringe will be back for a 13-episode fifth season to end the franchise. The second part of Brave New World does show however that the shows creators feared cancellation as they did tie up most of the storylines. Here is the episode’s plot…....
