Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer pose for 2015 Acting Outlaws Calendar

Since 2013 Actresses Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer have made a charity calendar to raise funds for a good cause. Both actresses are of course famous from the Battlestar Galactica remake of 2003. On RedBubble as well as the website of their charity, Acting Outlaws, you can now buy the calendar for the sum of 36.07 euro’s. I think it is well worth it. Their poses aren’t too revealing and seem to harken back to classic pin-up photography. This year alone...

Terminator Genisys Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor

Terminator: Genisys Trailer Released

After Jurassic World and Star Wars Episode 7 another Sci-fi sequel/reboot received a trailer to woo fans. For the most part Terminator: Genisys slipped beneath my radar. After all, if you have seen T3 and T4: Salvation who wants to see another Terminator movie. However, with the involvement of Emilia Clarke and Arnold Schwarzenegger the buzz has been positive. Terminator: Genisys Trailer Released Sadly, after I saw this trailer I was not convinced the movie is on the right track. It...

Agent 33 twisted face - Agents of SHIELD S2Ep9 Ye Who Enter Here Review

Agents of SHIELD S2Ep9 Ye Who Enter Here Review

This week’s episode of Agents of SHIELD, “…Ye Who Enter Here”, is the prelude to mid-season finale set to air December 9th. While most other shows have already gone into their hiatus SHIELD goes on, and it is going strong. Gone are those murky episode from season 1 you just loved to hate. I read some other reviews of this episode on the web and I am astonished at some of the criticism. Most reviewers seem fixated on little quirks...

Katia Winter in corset as Katrina Crane - Sleepy Hollow S2Ep11 The Akeda Review

Sleepy Hollow S2Ep11 The Akeda Review

The first half of Sleepy Hollow’s second season has ended on a high mark. For those who have read some of my reviews of the first season will know I criticized the uneven quality of the show. For the most part that has been fixed during season 2. Furthermore the cast has been extended to include Matt Barr as Nick Horley while John Noble and Neil Jackson have become regulars. All this does mean Sleepy Hollow had to take its time to work...

Sith lord unveils light saber - Star Wars VII Lightsaber

Star Wars Episode 7 trailer released

The Dark side, and the Light…. Finally, after almost two years of hearing how Star Wars episode 7 has been in production fans will finally get to see some footage. In all the excitement about the trailer that has been slowly building for weeks you would almost forget Jurassic World debuted a trailer as well. Yes, I know what you’re thinking. I saw, it was crap. Well, it was really! Bryce Dallas Howard is hot, Chris Pratt is cool but the...

Scarface played by David Valcin. Person of Interest S4Ep9 The Devil You Know Review

Person of Interest S4Ep9 The Devil You Know Review

Invictus Maneo It is strange that this episode of Person of Interest had so many one-liners. It makes it hard to choose a suitable subtitle. Would it be ‘there is always a way out’? Reese (Jim Caviezel) would have liked that. Or Dominic’s line ‘the game within a game’, but that sounds too much like a tagline from a Frank Herbert book. Both Elias and his right-hand man Scarface (real name Anthony) used the Latin phrase Invictus Maneo which means ‘I remain Unvanquished’. For...

The Inquisitor recieving information. Star Wars Rebels Gathering Forces Review

Star Wars Rebels Gathering Forces Review

I thought it time to write a review of Star Wars Rebels, the new Star Wars animated series that replaces The Clone Wars. After the pilot and the subsequent 7 episodes I have come to like this show. The 22 minute duration makes it snappy if a bit short. The humor is top-notch but the series is not afraid to show a darker side either. It’s not like it got much of a choice after previous series. I think Rebels has the...

Michio Kaku to host Cosmos season 2

Michio Kaku to host Cosmos season 2 If during the spring you also enjoyed Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey take comfort that a second season is in production. The reboot of Cosmos was of course based on the original show hosted by Carl Sagan in 1980. As Carl died in 1996 the new show was hosted by his disciple astrophysicist/science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson. Alas Neil won’t reappear for season 2. In an interview with the Tribune he cites his long absence from...

William Shatner joins Haven

William Shatner joins Haven

William Shatner joins Haven I used to put up the odd review of Haven every now and then. It mostly depended on whether an episode was any good. Quite frankly the last really good episode was the finale of season 3. Afterwards, too many mysteries were solved to my disappointment and too many secondary characters were killed off. Now during its fifth season the show has been hurting due to negative fan backlash. The ratings have also steadily dropped. That may change with...

Bear with grende belt. Person of Interest Point of Origin Review

Person of Interest Point of Origin Review

Person of Interest ‘Point of Origin” ended on a serious cliffhanger. Dominic, the leader of The Brotherhood, finally decided it is time to kill both Elias and ‘Riley’. Also Decima’s assassin and Greer’s number two Martine managed to catch up with Shaw. Both events mean that next week’s episode ‘The Devil You Know’ will be a real game-changer. Such a change of events has been hinted ever since the season’s première and is something that has been carefully worked towards. Sadly, this...

It features tantalizing links to two fake websites (Masrani Global and InGen). they will no doubt be the principal organizations behind Jurassic world....

Carol and Daryl (Norman Reedus) about to be pushed over - The Walking Dead S5Ep6 Consumed Review

The Walking Dead S5Ep6 Consumed Review

The Walking Dead S5Ep6 Consumed Review With the episode ‘Consumed’ TWD fills in the gap of the timeline. It depicts events between Carol and Daryl setting off to find Beth and when Daryl returned to the church. I feel pretty stupid that I forgot that Beth helped Noah escape from the hospital. So it is no surprise who Daryl took with him on his way back. As we have also seen a wounded Carol being helped into the same hospital we...
