Game of Thrones Season 4 Finale Review - Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister

Game of Thrones Season 4 Finale Review

In the preview of this seasons Game Of Thrones finale I warned that the sheer number of plot resolutions could harm the experience. Luckily I was dead wrong. The Children (as the episode is called) is a wonderful episode that lays out the future of many characters and sadly also means the end of some favorites. Both Arya and Tyrion have basically turned in Westeros for the eastern continent. Tyrion thus escapes his death sentence while Arya settles her past and begins her...

Stephen Fry as Prime Minister Davies 24: Live Another Day Episode 7 Review http://scifiempire.net

24: Live Another Day Episode 7 Review

This is my first 24: Live Another Day review. I am a bit of late bloomer when it comes to 24. Though I watched season 1 when it aired I stopped afterwards. It wasn’t until season 8 that I started again, and I must say. I have become a 24 addict. 24: Live Another Day is the long-awaited season 9, though at only 12 episodes long it is still quintessential 24. I thought that season 8 was the perfect conclusion for Jack Bauer and...

Neil deGrasse Tyson on cosmos. Michio Kaku to host Cosmos season 2

Cosmos ‘Unafraid of the Dark’ Season Finale Review

Cosmos ‘Unafraid of the Dark’ Season Finale Review After 13 episodes Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey has ended. And it has left me invigorated. I wasn’t sure what to think about this project when it first aired. I had seen Carl Sagan’s original show but that was a long time ago. 13 episodes in I have learned a lot about science even though I am currently finishing my own Master thesis in computer Science and I already should...

Covert Affairs Season 5 Preview Piper Perabo hot www.scifiempire.net

Covert Affairs Season 5 Preview

It is that time of the year again when everything on television is just crap. You are pondering what you’re going to end up watching during the summer holiday. Until you realize Piper Perabo will be back as the slick C.I.A spy Annie Walker. Ever since season one I have admired this series. It blends the traditional spy genre with a good amount of humor. Yet, Covert Affairs can be unforgiving to any of its characters, including Annie. As a man there are not...

Game of Thrones 'The Mountain and The Viper' Review http://scifiempire.net Game Of Thrones - Oberyn (Pedro Pascal) and his paramour before the duel

Game of Thrones ‘The Mountain and The Viper’ Review

This episode of Game Of Thrones has just been fantastic TV. It is one of those rare events when you actually forget you are watching a screen. There is no point in hiding the fact that this episode is about the duel to the death between Gregor Glegane ‘The Mountain’ and Prince Oberyn Martell ‘The Red Viper’, but this episode is so much more than that. It progresses pretty much every major storyline in a meaningful way and repairs some of the damage...

Edge Of Tomorrow Review - Emily Blunt as Rita at the Louvre

Edge Of Tomorrow Movie Review

Edge Of Tomorrow Movie Review The summer Block-buster season definitely opened on a high note with Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier. Since then we have had Godzilla and X-Men: Days of Future Past. I must say I am starting to feel spoiled. Now we have Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. This movie kind-off slipped under the radar as did Cruise’s previous sci-fi movie Oblivion. For a 178 million dollar movie it has so far garnered relatively little...

Stargate 1994 poster - Stargate Reboot Roland Emmerich

MGM reboots Stargate with a new trilogy directed by Roland Emmerich

A few months ago I already reported that MGM was thinking of rebooting the Stargate franchise. Roland Emmerich was attached to the project and slated to direct at least one of the proposed movies. I presumed that after the news broke the project would move into pre-production, but in the movie business everything takes time. Now the deal is finally final. MGM IS rebooting the Stargate franchise and Roland Emmerich IS slated to direct at least one movie. Some news outlets have...

Watch Dogs Review Roundup

Watch Dogs Review Roundup

It’s May 27th 2014, Watch Dogs from Ubisoft has finally been officially released. I say officially because plenty of those that have pre-ordered the game got it over a week ago. Ubisoft may not like that very much because the game is also available for download as an illegal torrent. The developer has poured over 68 million in developing and marketing Watch Dogs which earns it a respectable 16th place on the list of most expensive games (Grand Theft Auto 5 and the...

Revolution Cancelled

Revolution S2Ep22 Series Finale Declaration of Independence Review

Eric Kripke’s Revolution has ended prematurely after two seasons. The show that was produced by Bad Robot Productions, J.J. Abrams and Jon Favreau drew criticism from the very first episode onwards. The series had a lot of promise with its innovative premise of trying to imagine what happens after all the electricity in the world fails. Sadly, the show also felt rushed. The first ten episodes saw Charlie (Tracy Spriridakos), Miles (Billy Burke) and Aaron (Zak Orth) go on a endless...

Defiance season 2 gang

Defiance Season 2 cast portraits

On June 19th Defiance will be back for it second season. As a teaser Syfy released no less than 25 high resolution character portraits to drool over. I found myself instantly awaiting the new season with renewed hope. Defiance has managed to build a small loyal fan base after its somewhat rocky first season. Some call it a miracle that it even got a second as Syfy Channel is notorious for cancelling fan favorites. Nonetheless the show from Farscape creator...

Warehouse 13 series finale Endless - Allison Scagliotti as Claudia Donovan

Warehouse 13 Series Finale ‘Endless’ Review

Unlike many other Science Fiction shows such as Stargate, Star Trek or Eureka I have always had something of a love-hate relationship with Warehouse 13. I make a distinction between Warehouse 13 and the other shows because I never hated those even when they had a bad episode. Instead Warehouse 13 could easily give us 10 good episodes in a row followed by 10 bad episodes. Or it would alternate between good and bad episodes. It was at times so frustrating to...

Game Of Thrones S4Ep7 Mockingbird Review - Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson as The Mountain (Clegane)

Game Of Thrones S4Ep7 Mockingbird Review

I find Game of Thrones exceedingly hard to review. The episodes are always brilliant, their quality surprisingly consistent. Yet, some episode that are considered the best are also painful to watch. Game of Thrones doesn’t beat around the bush with its drama. Drama accentuated by gore, nudity, torture (a form of gore) and humor. It is the show for dilettante, but they need to remember that all men must die. Mockingbird is the seventh episode of season 4 of GoT. It...

Elementary Season 2 The Grand Experiment Review

Elementary Season 2 The Grand Experiment Review

Season 2 of Elementary has ended in a surprising way. After all season 1 ended with the arrest of Moriarty/Irene and thus I was expecting her to spring herself from jail and further attempt to take over the world. Apart from the episode in which she does come back she has been absent. Strangely enough season 2 has thus felt somewhat unhinged. Without an arch criminal behind every act of murder we are left with just the procedural aspects of the show....
