Warehouse 13 renewed for season 4!

Warehouse 13 renewed for season 4!

Yes, one of the few sci-fi shows that the Syfy channel still has is being renewed for a fourth season. That’s just days after a sixth season of Eureka has been canceled (though of course season 5 is still on). Too some this seems like an unlikely course of events as Warehouse 13’s ratings have not been that strong either. Though an apparent minor increase in viewers this season has led to the decision to commission another 13 episodes. Still, according to most fans Warehouse 13 though fun to watch does not score very high on either the sci-fi element or the suspense element. The...

Early next year another sci-fi show will début from ‘Bad Robot Productions’, the first one being ‘Person of interest’ for CBS and the second being ‘Alcatraz’ for Fox channel. ‘Alcatraz’ will star lost actor Jorge Garcia as Dr. Diego Goto, an expert on Alcatraz island and especially the mysterious disappearance of 302 wardens and prisoners over 50 years ago. He will be joined by Rebecca Madsen, played by Sarah Jones (House, Sons of Anarchy). Together they investigate the sudden reappearance of the missing wardens and prisoners. The cast will also include Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) but it is unclear at this moment if he will...

Alphas ‘Never Let Me Go’ review!

Alphas ‘Never Let Me Go’ review!

‘Never let me go’ is the latest episode of Alphas. After last weeks excellent episode I was really anticipating this one as well. Though it is ultimately not as good as last weeks we do get to see the alphas formula starting to mature, and it doesn’t disappoint. The story is simple enough, there are unexplained deaths at a highschool and the Alpha team is sent to investigate. This week they got badges and they now belong to DCIS (DCIS!!!! as gary likes to put it). The episode is Rachel centric meaning we learn more about her families difficult history and her attempts to...

Person of interest preview!

Person of interest preview!

This fall CBS will start airing a new crime/drama with sci-fi elements called ‘Person of interest’. It will star Micheal Emerson as the billionaire Mr. Finch who has developed a computer program that can predict future crime à la ‘Minority report’. It will also star Jim Caviezel as former CIA agent ‘Reese’ who is presumed dead and helps Mr. Finch find the culprits of whatever crime that is set to happened. The pilot for this series was among the best recieved ever, so much so that the schedule for CSI has been rearranged to make place for ‘Person of interest’. Though the series will...

Warehouse 13 ‘3..2..1’ Review!

Warehouse 13 ‘3..2..1’ Review!

Last weeks episode of Warehouse 13 was a slight disappointment. This weeks episode entitled ‘3..2..1’ was better, but it felt a little disjointed. The main improvement this week came about by the reappearance of HG Wells (played by Jaime Murray) after an absence of a few weeks. The episode begins with the unexplained deaths by a weapon that causes its victims to turn to dust. Quickly Myka deduces that it is a similar weapon that HG Wells sought after while she worked at Warehouse 12 in 1893. Thus the regents allow HG Wells to join in the investigation albeit as...

Eureka ‘Omega girls’ review!

Eureka ‘Omega girls’ review!

This weeks episode of Eureka entitled ‘Omega girls’ focused mostly on pushing forward the Eureka mythology. It tries to set in cement the changes that have occurred after our gang moved forward in time. The episode starts of funnily enough with Dr Blake (under the control of Beverly) sending the kids away to her mom’s so they won’t be a bother and afterward taking her time to pick her garment of the day while being nude (not that you see much). That the episode focusses mostly on Blake/Beverly can partly be inferred by the fact that it is Salli Richardson (who plays Allison...

Alphas ‘Rosetta’ review and ‘Never let me go’ preview!.

Alphas ‘Rosetta’ review and ‘Never let me go’ preview!.

Finally did I manage to get round to reviewing last weeks episode of Alphas. It maybe summer holiday for others but not for me, which is really a shame because last weeks episode of Alphas just rocked! It was entitled ‘Rosetta’ in reference, obviously, to the Rosetta stone which helped decipher the ancient Egyptian language. This episode is the first since the pilot to really move forward the Alphas mythology. Remember from the pilot that Cameron had been recruited into Dr Rosen’s Alpha group after he had tried to assassinate government witnesses who were involved in studying Alphas. It was revealed he was...

Warehouse 13 ‘Queen for a Day’ Review!

Warehouse 13 ‘Queen for a Day’ Review!

Warehouse 13 certainly took off well in its third season. Better special effects, more budget towards the set and the cast appearance was considerably altered. Almost as if for 5 years production had ceased and only just restarted. What was also different was the level of drama, which was considerably increased. This probably because the series wouldn’t have a long lifetime if it merely became a ‘artifact of the week’ show. We already learned a great deal about Myka’s background in the last season but Pete’s background has but a reference to his alcoholism not been touched upon. That was set right in this...

Eureka “Up in the Air” review!

Eureka “Up in the Air” review!

Another week, another Eureka review! This week we see our crew train for the Astraeus mission to Titan, it is still too early to say whether the show will ever go to Titan but it seems suddenly that it has a goal to work towards to. Despite the fact that almost everybody is training for the mission (Blake, Lupo, Zane, Fargo, Henry and his wife) it is certainly not clear if anyone can go. In the meantime Carter has got his handful when a supposedly normal case of ‘bank robbery’ turns out into a suspected case where the entire ‘bank’ has been physically robbed....

Eureka “Reprise” review!

Eureka “Reprise” review!

Eureka is back for another episode, this time the plot takes a little while to get started. Fargo thinks he is getting evaluated after last weeks unsanctioned rocket launch and to gain strength for the upcoming ego fight he is listening to some unusual tunes. In the meantime doctor Blake needs to disappear because she doesn’t fit into this story and ends up saving somebody from a roadside crash. Instead we get Carter having to look after Blake’s two kids which includes Kevin (played by Trevor Jackson) who despite some difficulty with his dialogue seems hellbent on cracking everybody up...

Eureka “Liftoff” review!

Eureka “Liftoff” review!

Eureka is back! Finally season 4 can continue. Since season 4 took the series in a new direction we have been delighted with mostly superb episodes after season 2 and 3 took a slow march downwards. The first thing noticeable in this episode are the special effects, lets hope will stay as good as they were. The storyline revolves around the accidental launch of a Mercury era space capsule that is tested for an experimental FTL drive, only downside is that both Fargo and Zane are in it. After nearly blowing it out of the sky the gang on the ground have to rescue...

Alphas first episode review!

Alphas is the latest tv-series from the Syfy Channel. It is produced by no other than Gail Berman (Malcolm in the middle, 24) and Ira Steven Behr (DS9) and has both sci-fi and supernatural elements.

The head of this group is Dr. Lee Rosen (David Straithairn) who acts as both guide fo the group members and liaison between a mysterious government facilitator Wilson (Callum Rennie). The episode starts when a witness of Wilson gets shot to...

Torchwood: Miracle Day first episode review!

Torchwood is back for a fourth season. Now it has the subtitle ‘Miracle Day’ and will take place largely in the US. The new season sees the return of Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) as the remaining members of Torchwood. This season they will be accompanied by Rex Matheson (Mekhi Phifer) a CIA agent and Esther Drummond (Alexa Havins). The new season/series storyline revolves around the premiss that the entire world has stopped dying. Despite the initial jubilation at this ‘Miracle Day’ things quickly get gloomy when the full repercussions become known. Of course both Rex and Esther quickly make...
