Continuum Time’s Up Review!

The sixth episode of continuum continues with the new direction that episode 5 started. Now that Edouard Kagame (Tony Amendola) has rejoined Liber8 they have changed their strategy. No longer do they use self-defeating scare tactics but instead they have opted to promote Liber8’s manifesto through manipulating the Occupy like movement seen in the back story.

Warehouse 13 Season 4 ‘A New Hope’ Preview!

The fourth season of Warehouse 13 is almost upon us, on July 23rd the season will kick off with the episode entitled ‘A New Hope’ which I suspect is a reference to the dramatic events that happened in the season 3 finale in which Mrs. Frederic, Steve Jinks and H.G. Wells all died. Too some it suggested the series had to cut back on funding for actors but I suspect at least one of those that had died will come back...

SciFiEmpire.net celebrates its One Year Anniversary!

It’s been one year to the day since I started this website dedicated to bringing you news and reviews of all the latest popular Science Fiction tv-shows, movies and novels. SciFiEmpire.net got off a rocky start with images that were too small, choppy lay-out and an author who refused to use the spell check. Now I am getting almost 10.000 hits a month and that makes me mighty proud. Still, the site is a work in progress with many features...

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 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.

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.

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...
