Sleepy Hollow S2Ep2 The Kindred Review - Katia Winter as Katrina in corset dress

Sleepy Hollow S2Ep2 The Kindred Review

It has been a while since I have written anything about the Sleepy Hollow TV show starring Tom Mison as Ichabod Crane and Nicole Beharie as Lt. Abbie Mills. During the first season it was made clear that this show would be a re-imagining, something are good while others are not. Slowly the show is coming into its own. There are no significant lapses in the plot and Nicole finally seems to have found her stride. The only gripe that remains is the quick...

Person Of Interest Season 4 Episode 1 Panopticon Review - Amy Acker as Root

Person Of Interest Season 4 Episode 1 Panopticon Review

Person Of Interest is finally back for its fourth season. I haven’t looked forward to PoI’s since the end of season 1, but the changes made during its third season finally seem to pay off. The Tuesday slot that PoI is rather crowded but it is still my number one TV show. Person Of Interest Season 4 Episode 1 Panopticon Review The changed circumstances for each of the characters has been quite profound. At first it seems that Harold (Michael...

The Blacklist S2Ep3 Dr. James Covington (No. 89) Review

The Blacklist Season 2 Lord Baltimore (No. 104) Review

The Blacklist Season 2 Lord Baltimore (No. 104) Review Finally The Blacklist has returned to air. The wait between season 1 and 2 almost made me feel like the world had stopped. Ever since James Spader put on his felt hat in the first episode he has managed to intrigue the audience as Raymond Reddington. All TV-show characters are the product of the exposition that the show’s writers create. For Raymond Reddington this means that his character was the product of...

Extant season 1 finale review - Halle Berry as Molly

Extant season 1 finale review

Extant season 1 finale review The first season of Extant starring Halle Berry has finally come to a close. I was surprised when I first heard about this series, the day before it aired. I could vaguely remember there being an announcement sometime before that Halle Berry would star in a new sci-fi series but nothing was heard afterwards. Extant’s premise of the female astronaut coming back to earth pregnant with an alien acted as an effective starter to all the other plotlines ranging from...

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 Trailer - Donald Sutherland as President Coriolanus Snow

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 Trailer and Preview

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 Trailer and Preview The last installment of The Hunger Games begins this autumn and it will see Katniss taking the fight to the leaders of Panem. Before the first Hunger Games movie was released I had certainly heard of the books but had not read them. I considered them little more than sci-fi chicklit. I may have been partly right, the novels do cater to a certain audience but they do manage to create an involved for its...

Keanu Reeves and Roland Emmerich produce New Angeles

Keanu Reeves and Roland Emmerich produce New Angeles Stargate director Roland Emmerich and The Matrix star Keanu Reeves are working together on a new sci-fi TV series. According to Deadline producer David Ellender has set up a production company for the show which is tentatively called ‘New Angeles’. The basic premise sounds somewhat familiar, especially considering Keanu Reeves is involved. ‘Set in the future, the series centers on a young man who escapes the mundane reality of his life by entering an...

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer - John delancie as Q in All Good Things

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer and Preview

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer Finally the last season of The Next Generation will get its Blu-Ray release. Ever since CBS home released a preview disk set of 4 TNG episodes in full HD in 2012 it has been a pleasure to rewatch the entire series. In my opinion the experience is drastically improved over the lackluster DVD release from years back. The special effects and the drama seem to contain a lot more impact with the remastered HD release....

Haven season 5 Preview

The fifth season of Syfy’s Haven is almost upon us, next Thursday on September 11th the first half of the season will start airing. Please note that the time slot has moved from Friday to Thursday, normally this is a good thing because Friday nights is considered to be the graveyard slot of TV. This season of Haven is as mentioned split up into two mini seasons of 13 episodes each. I personally have severe misgivings about this. The show has slipped from its...

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Trailer and Preview - Ex-Agent Ward (Brett Dalton)

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Trailer and Preview

Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Trailer and Preview Agents of SHIELD was one of last year’s most controversial new TV to air. It wasn’t controversial because of any graphic violence or nudity but because many fans felt let down by the hype. I was one of them. During the first few episodes I was easily distracted by the California setting, the lame plot and the lead characters who acted like jerks. Slowly, with many hiccups, the season improved until the moment...

Penetration testing A Hands-on introduction to hacking by Georgia Weidman Review!

Penetration testing A Hands-on introduction to hacking by Georgia Weidman Review!

As I have studied Computer Science I am naturally interested in Penetration Testing. No one wants to leave their computer or mobile devices unprotected, but I also wanted to know more on how such dark arts are performed. I don’t want to know that because I want break into some one’s computer but I would like to know just how the worlds IT infrastructure is vulnerable to people pressing keys on their keyboards a world away. As such I have a...

Autómata preview movie poster starring Antonio Banderas

Autómata Preview and Trailer Released!

It took me by surprise this morning to discover that Antonio Banderas was starring in a Science Fiction movie. It is called Automata and from the trailer it seems to be a cross between Blade Runner and I, Robot. What surprised me even more is that the trailer was very good. Internet forums are full of trolls saying that a particular work is derived from another. I don’t care, I accept that artists can be inspired by other artists as long as...

Person of Interest Season 4 Preview

The fall is almost upon us and you know what that means. TV shows, lots of TV-shows. Some of the new ones such as Gotham, Constantine, NCIS New Orléans and many more. While others will start their make or break second season (Agents of SHIELD and The Blacklist). Frankly there is simply too much to review for one author of a small sci-fi blog. Anyway, the show I am most looking forward is to Person of Interest (PoI). PoI suffered during its second season...

The Circuit - Executor Rising by Rhett C. Bruno Review

The Circuit – Executor Rising by Rhett C. Bruno Review

The Circuit – Executor Rising by Rhett C. Bruno Review The Circuit: Executor Rising is the début novel of Rhett Bruno, who is otherwise an architect attached to Syracuse University. The story follows an all too familiar premise. In the far future after the earth was destroyed (by all means kill the old girl) and humanity scattered in the solar system. Various factions are vying for control (they always are) over a rare element called Gravitum (there is always something like that). However, the familiarity doesn’t stop there. Most leaders...
