Eureka season 4 finale “One giant leap” review!

Eureka season 4 finale “One giant leap” review!

The last episode of the fourth season of Eureka is a fact, with just one more season to go it was interesting to see if the show creators would move the show in a new direction. This episode did see the launch of Astraeus mission so that still seems to be on for the next season. The episode starts with the final preparations for the mission being made, president Obama is set to visit GD headquarters only his advance teams...

Fringe promo material released!

Fringe promo material released!

It is scarcely a week until the 23rd when Fringe Season 4 will kick off. So far we know Olivia and Walther will have to make do without Peter because he has been erased from history by the machine. And that is about the only real spoiler we have for the fourth season, the new promomaterial ia mainly built up out of previous season material, though a cool new poster has emerged (spot the Observers!). Here is the first flashback...

Alphas Renewed for second season!

Alphas Renewed for second season!

Sorry dear readers for having been absent for more than a week and being a bit late with the customary triad of SyFy channel reviews but college has been hell at the moment and of course takes first priority. Be sure to know that the Warehouse 13 review is still in the making but last weeks episodes of Eureka and Alphas were below par and could be rated mediocre rather of hand. Speaking of mediocre I have the duty to...

Warehouse 13 ‘Past imperfect’ review!

Warehouse 13 ‘Past imperfect’ review!

This is one of those strange episodes were Warehouse 13 tries to get all serious and against the odds it actually works. Season 2 also had such episodes though I have forgotten theor names it is nontheless a strange gambit as Warehouse 13 normally has to succeed with being goofy with its characters and clever with its artifacts. Certainly the show more often than I would like just ‘Jumps the shark’ but ehere is a thread of episodes right from...

New Fringe Teaser!

New Fringe Teaser!

Here is the fourth Fringe teaser entitled ‘Where is Peter Bishop?”, similar to the first three teasers they stay true to their category with only revealing tiny snippets of information. The shows creative staff always kinda like these sorts of mystery things, its gets the buzz going for their show…. and it does seem to be working, there is already quite a bit of buzz surrounding season 4 of Fringe. Despite the creative staff of Fringe being from ‘Bad Robot...

Eureka ‘Clash of the Titans’ review!

Eureka ‘Clash of the Titans’ review!

This weeks episode Eureka sees Fargo and Holly making preparations for the trip to Titan, however, due to the level of mutual distraction they keep bungling their tests and deside the best way to keep working together is to ‘to eat their dessert’ which is a pseudonym for getting to third base just in case you were still wondering. However, Fargo, who should be delighted, seems to have second thoughts as he is wary of missing out the steps before...

Alphas ‘Catch and release’ review!

Alphas ‘Catch and release’ review!

This weeks episode of Alphas is entitled ‘Catch and release’ and guest stars Summer Glau (Terminator series) as an old Alpha team acquitance who has the ability to make astonishing things from electronics. After seeing this episode I can say that I really feel reinvigorated about this series, because ever since the episode ‘Rosetta stone’ it has been misses and before that things weren’t much better. The series revisits the Alpha team connections with government agencies and their struggle with...

Warehouse 13 and Alphas review!

Warehouse 13 and Alphas review!

I finally managed to get round finding time to write a review for this weeks episodes of Warehouse 13 and Alphas. Unfortunately, one reason why I delayed writing a review was that both episodes were mediocre as best this week. That’s why both reviews won’t be as extensive as normally as I have already described both shows shortcomings before and now like a perfect storm they found their way into these episodes. Warehouse 13 ‘Don’t hate the player’ , starts...

Eureka ‘Of Mites and Men’ review!

Eureka ‘Of Mites and Men’ review!

This weeks episode we saw another good attempt from the producers to force the mythology of Eureka full ahead. With the cancellation season 6 I can’t see that changing until the bitter season 5 end. Last weeks episode saw Dr Blake being mind-controlled by our former hot hostess Dr. Beverly Barlow. This week Dr. Blake is back at GD looking to resume her work as head of GD. However, Senator Wen is in town and she like most people (including Carter) can’t...

Fringe season 4 preview!

Fringe season 4 preview!

On the 23rd of september Fringe will be back for another season of 22 episodes. Last season didn’t do too well in the ratings and ever since season 2 there have been rumours of cancellation which have all been subsequently disputed most vigorously by Fox. However, with an average viewership of season 3 of less than 4 million the show has definitely taken a hit from the high days when viewership regularly topped 9 million. One thing season 4 will try to do...

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...

Alcatraz preview!

Alcatraz preview!

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.

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...

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...
