Watson pursued by the The Abominable Bride

Sherlock The Abominable Bride Review

The Abominable Bride Finally after an absence of 2 years Sherlock has returned. The series, created by Steven Moffat and John Gatiss, has been a fan favorite since its first season aired in 2010. The second season, which expanded the cast to include Lara Pulver, solidified the show’s reputation and that of actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Sadly, the third season missed the spot for me. Those episodes could be best described as boring, convoluted and missing the mystery...

Girlfriends Guide To Divorce S02Ep4 Rule #605: You Can Go Home Again Review

Girlfriends Guide To Divorce, a review Every once in a while I write a review for a show that is not sci-fi. Usually they are either fantasy, horror or some spy-thriller such as The Blacklist. This week I will review an episode of Girlfriends Guide To Divorce, the supposedly real drama show from Bravo starring Lisa Edelstein. Lisa plays Abby McCarthy who is in the midst of an ongoing separation from Jake (played by Paul Adelstein). This week’s episode, Rule...

Lucy Liu wearing mini skirts on Elementary

The fashion of Elementary and how realistic is it?

The fashion of Elementary and how realistic is it? The fourth season of the CBS hit TV hit Elementary is running along nicely. The show featuring Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Joan Watson had a bit of dip during its third season. There are only so many ways Sherlock can solve a crime before the audience tires. At this moment I am hopeful for season 4, the inclusion of John Noble as Sherlock’s father Morland has the potential of...

Agents of SHIELD mid-season finale Maveth review!

Agents of SHIELD mid-season finale Maveth review! The mid-season finale of Agents of SHIELD from yesterday evening took me by surprise. From the promo it wasn’t hard to guess what the episode was about. Except for the needless plot involving Andrew/Lash it was a hell of a lot better executed than I thought it would be. The showdown between Ward and Coulson may have ended in a win for Coulson, but the ending leaves Ward in the game. Sort of. Agents of...

Detective Miller - The Expanse

The Expanse Pilot Review – Syfy increases the stakes!

The Expanse Pilot Review Finally the first episode of The Expanse has streamed on Syfy. The show is a space opera adaptation of authors (plural) James S.A Corey novel series of the same name. The show has been hotly anticipated with expectations running high as comparisons were made to Battlestar Galactica and Game of Thrones. Indeed, the author of A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) G.R.R. Martin has given his thumbs up to the novel series started...

The star from movies such as The Fast and the Furious and Saving Private Ryan used his usual swagger to tout that more Riddick was coming. If true, not only will a new movie feature the titular character but there will also be a spin-off series. On Instagram the actor had the following to say “Last night Our company had a party to launch Our TV division....

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...

Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Holgrath and Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones Preview – Netflix pours it on with another Marvel show

Jessica Jones Preview Jessica Jones is a new Netflix show based on the similarly named comic book hero, or heroine. 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...

New Star Trek TV series - woman in skirt uniform

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...
