Mike in drag. Limitless

Limitless S1Ep09 Headquarters! Review

Limitless S1Ep09 Headquarters! Review For over two months now I have enjoyed watching CBSs Limitless, the sequel series to the similarly named movie from 2011 starring Bradley Cooper. The premise is still the same as the movie. A secret wonder drug called NZT-48 allows users complete access to their brain functions radically increasing their mental prowess. In the TV series Brian Finch, played by Jake McDorman, has been recruited by the FBI after an incidental use of NZT. Unlike many all other people Brian remains...

Jessica Jones stars Krysten Ritter as the titular character who runs her own detective agency, Alias Investigations. Show runner Melissa Rosenberg is keen to retain the gritty feels of the Alias comic book series. The comic book series is considered to be more adult than other Marvel series and the goal is the transition to a show will reflect that. Jessica Jones...

Thoughts on the new Star Trek TV series set for 2017

A new Star Trek TV series, from CBS After years of rumors the bullet is finally through the church (a saying in my part of the world). CBS has announced it will be producing a new Star Trek TV show set for release in 2017. Not much is known besides that. The press release did say that veteran TV producer Alex Kurtzman would helm the reboot. Kurtzman has worked on shows such as Xena, Alias, Fringe and Sleepy Hollow. He...

The X-Files S10Ep6 My Struggle II Preview

The X-Files – New promo and poster show Scully and Mulder teaming up

The X-Files – I Still Want To Believe! On January 24th The X-files will be back with a new 6-episode season after 15 years. I believe (no pun intended) that most fans will have firmly pinned the date on their calendar. Yet it seems that even with all the promotions and articles it is hard to get really excited. We have all been burned before by remakes, reboots and re-visits. For me this new the X-files miniseries has always been...

The Man in the High Castle episode 2 ‘Sunrise’ Review

The Man in the High Castle Earlier this year Amazon released several pilot episodes of TV-series it was producing. These episode for their prospective shows were used to gauge their potential. The pilot episode of The Man In The High Castle, an alternate history drama, came out on top. It received rave reviews from both critics and viewers and so Amazon Studios ordered a full season. The show is based on the 1962 novel of Philip K. Dick that deals with...

Syfy cancels Defiance In a surprise twist Syfy has cancelled Rockne O’Bannon’s futuristic series. Defiance has only completed its third season this summer, but the steadily dropping ratings were cause for Syfy to cancel it entirely. Defiance first aired in 2013 and was an experiment at a transmedia franchise.

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep2 Purpose in the Machine Review

An article on Blastr.com went into detail about how the new season of Agents of SHIELD will transform the series for the better. Certainly after two episodes I agree it has managed an incredible turn around. So much so that I remain skeptical if Marvel is doing the right thing releasing even more shows on Netflix. The teaser trailer for Jessica Jones released today certainly did not convince many people. But we are here for the second episode of AoS’s third...

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep1 Laws of Nature Review

It has been just over 3 months since the second season of Agents of SHIELD ended. The creative staff behind the show, Joss Whedon included, have yet again tinkered with the format in the hopes of improving ratings. Considering the second was an improvement over the first we can only hope the third season will be even better. Agents of SHIELD S3Ep1 Laws of Nature Review In terms of the story the third season continues about 3 months after the finale....

Meagan Good as Detective Vega. Minority Report S1Ep2 Mr. Nice Guy Review

Minority Report S1Ep2 Mr. Nice Guy Review

Fox attempts to sink another show! A few weeks ago I reviewed the pilot episode of Minority Report after it leaked. While I noted some concerns with the quality of the episode I also believed it had promise. Episode 2 does not change my opinion. There are still issues, the future world still feels unconvincing and the acting feels a bit wonky. If Fox wants this show to succeed it will need to try harder as the quality is not on par...

Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron. Continuum Season 4 Premiere Review

Continuum Season 4 Premiere Review

Continuum Season 4 Premiere Review Continuum is finally back for it’s last, and short 6 episode season. Simon Barry’s show entered the ratings doldrums after the disappointing second season. Sadly, Showcase and Syfy saw no other choice but to end the series with a 6 episode run to tie-up the storyline and not leave fans in the wind. Continuum lost a lot of viewers when it become less focused. There were too many secondary characters, secrets organizations and sudden plot...
