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 Prometheus Poster! Warning – Spoiler!

Please not, the below poster has been cut to remove the spoilery material but the one below that is the original. A new poster has been released for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, fans aren’t really happy with it as it shows the Prometheus ramming the alien ship with the pricipal cast taking to the hills.

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…....

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ Part 2 Preview!

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ Part 2 Preview!

Friday night the finale of the fourth season of Fringe will air, though a 13-episode fifth season has been confirmed I can’t but help feeling that Fringe is already ending. In some respects this has to do with the rather disjointed storyline of the fourth season compared to the first three. The smaller story arcs were fun but when it was clear they all added up to the finale they seem to lose their meaning. Adding that some lower quality...

Star Trek Novels Update!

Star Trek Novels Update!

As I have not posted anything on Star Trek novels lately like I used to I will give a brief summary of what has happened on this front. ***UPDATED*** Here is the cover of Starfleet Academy The Assassination Game. ***UPDATED*** ‘Starfleet Academy The Assassination Game’. First of all is the prospective release of the Young adult novel ‘Starfleet Academy The Assassination Game’ by Alan Gratz late June next month, I say prospective because even though it is highly expected by fans there...

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ part 1 review!

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ part 1 review!

Its been a while since I have posted reviews of Fringe, quite frankly my studies have kept me very busy and the episodes of season 4 have so far been just tad under par compared to earlier seasons. They were for the most part still good and I am also happy to announce that Fringe has been confirmed for a fifth and last season that will span 13 episodes. That will bring the total to 100, the magic number for selling...

TNG Blu-ray season 1 arriving July 23rd!

After the spectacular sample disc in January we have all been waiting for the news on when the first season of TNG would be released. Finally we have gotten the date, it’s the 23rd of July. Which is still some time away unfortunately but at least it’s coming. Expect the second season to be released during the 4th quarter. Alas there is one big problem, and that is the price tag. The retail price in the Uk is 50.99 which roughly translates...

Eureka season 5 starts next monday!

Eureka season 5 starts next monday!

Yes, its true, Eureka is back a little earlier in the year than normal for its fifth and last season. Sadly the trend towards wrestling ghost shows at the Syfy channel continues. As for the first episode of season 5, its entitled Lost and information is so far hard to find, which doesn’t bode well for the ratings (And Syfy channel wonders why). However, courtesy of SciFiStorm.org I have managed to get a small synopsis. As Eureka’s thrilling fifth and...

Star Trek Phase 2 the Child is Online!

Star Trek Phase 2 the Child is Online!

Well, I guess most of you have heard of the fan series Phase 2 created by James Cawley and Jack Marshall. CBS tolerates this fan production as long as they don;t try to earn a profit, the series was started in 2004 and is managing to release one episode per year (though they hope to accelerate this). Here is the episode streamed or you by YouTube. For many fans the title may sound familiar, that’s because there was a similar episode...
