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 week’s episode ‘Point of Origin’ gets in the way. It is a classic ‘PoI’ of the week episode that although...

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 know nothing serious will happened to either Daryl and Carol. Nonetheless ‘Consumed’ manages to captivate its audience with its moody music...

Reconnaissance with Maltego WHOIS Nslookup on pentest targets

For those who have read my first chapter on my book on the Linux Command Line will know it will also cover the basics on Penetration Testing. The objective of the book is to teachers readers to use the Linux Terminal, program simple projects and learn about the Internet. All three skills are valuable and taken together they form an essential set of skills for those working as computer scientist, engineering and data science.

Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) in bed with Andrew Mittal - Elementary Just a Regular Irregular Review

Elementary Just a Regular Irregular Review

This weeks episode of Elementary entitled ‘Just a Regular Irregular’ starts off just as you would expect. Consulting mathematician Harlan Emple discovers a body stuffed in a storage box after he arrives at a warehouse. He discovered the place following various math puzzles. The unusual circumstances of the murder might seem just right for an episode of Elementary. And though I have no doubt it would be good otherwise it turns out to be a great episode because at its center it deals with the ‘irregulars’ as Sherlock calls them. They are the experts Sherlock Holmes consults to solve parts crimes he doesn’t...

Sunil Bakshi played by Simon Kassianides (For Coulson) - Agents of SHIELD The Writing on the Wall Review

Agents of SHIELD The Writing on the Wall Review

This weeks episode Agent Of SHIELD proves that the show can succeed if it dares to offer genuine character development through drama. As both Coulson and Ward are confronted by personal demons they show they are still the core two characters of SHIELD. For me ‘Writing on the Wall’ has been my favorite season episode so far and I must say Agent of SHIELD is becoming an appreciated show next to my Tuesday dose of Person Of Interest. As for this episode. I first discuss briefly what has happened in a summary and then I discuss the implications. Agents of SHIELD The Writing...

Alan Fitch (Alan Alda) with collar bomb - The Blacklist mid-season finale The Decembrist Review

The Blacklist mid-season finale The Decembrist Review

The Blacklist has finally reached the halfway mark of its second season. I must say that so far season 2 has hardly been outstanding, it has been good, but not yet great. This episode entitled The Decembrist molds both the good and bad into, well a good episode that will have many fans questioning if the show can sustain itself in the long run. The Blacklist mid-season finale… The episode starts with Reddington confronting Berlin about the person who set them up on a collision course. Reddington (James Spader) discovers that Berlin was part of a KGB attempt to keep the Soviet-Union intact....

Abraham says the world can't afford them to wait - The Walking Dead - Self Help - Review

The Walking Dead – Self Help – Review

At this moment The Walking Dead is hopping between storylines every episode. Last week we saw what has become of Beth and this week we follow Eugene, Abraham, Rosita, Tara, Maggie and Glenn on their trek towards DC. However, unbeknown to anyone but Tara Eugene is sabotaging their efforts because he doesn’t want to get to DC before he can make his big revelation. In a badly needed episode we discover the background stories of Abraham and Eugene giving both more badly needed characterization. I hope Rosita and Tara will also not be left out because this episode proves they...

Sonya Walger as Angela White - Elementary The Five Orange Pipz

Elementary The Five Orange Pipz Review

Elementary The Five Orange Pipz….. The second episode of Elementary’s third continues the pseudo-feud between Holmes and Watson. However, unlike that real feud from season 2 between detective Bell and Sherlock over the shooting incident this one is practically over by the end of the episode. After a man named Elias Openshaw is shot to death while on the phone with Captain Gregson (who was investigating the death of Openshaw’s lawyer) Watson beats Sherlock to be the first to take up the case. However, Sherlock knows more about the case and tells her how Openshaw had been in hiding after deliberately selling toys through his...

Mozhan Marnò as Samar Navabi capturing Hassan - The Blacklist S2ep7 The Scimitar Review

The Blacklist S2ep7 The Scimitar Review

So far the second season of The Blacklist has been a hit-or-miss affaire. Last week’s episode The Mombasa Cartel never really managed to engage with its audience. The week before that we had The Front, which was about a resurgent eco-terrorist group hunting down poachers and turning them into waxwork. The creepiness factor reminded me of The Stewmaker, but no more than that. This weeks episode entitled The Scimitar is about a Iranian operation intent on taking revenge on the US for the death of a nuclear scientist. The man the Iranian intelligence send is according to Reddington one part hitman...

Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) wearing a gas mask - elementary s3ep1 review

Elementary S3Ep1 Review Enough Nemesis To Go Around

Welcome to the review of the season 3 première episode of Elementary entitled ‘Enough Nemesis To Go Around’. After a second season which attempted changes , both successfully and not, Elementary was turned on its head by show runner Robert Doherty when he decided Joan Watson and Sherlock Holmes would discontinue their partnership. Having recently rewatched the shows pilot episode I am amazed at the growth both characters have made in two years. That growth is also at risk of becoming stale if changes were not made, though merely including new characters was evidently not enough. Instead we find that the season 3 première starts of 6...

Grant Ward planning his escape - Agents Of SHIELD S2Ep6 A Fractured House Review

Agents Of SHIELD S2Ep6 A Fractured House Review

Since the beginning of Agents of SHIELD’s second season the question of whether government organizations would hunt down SHIELD has been mentioned. Certainly General Talbot appeared keen to do so but if anything his attempts were only half-hearted, in fact he seems to have built up a rapport with Coulson over their mutual enemy HYDRA. In this weeks episode, A Fractured House, HYDRA commits a false flag attack on the UN in retaliation over last weeks events. Though Talbot appears skeptical it was SHIELD his boss, senator Ward, appears convinced. At first this may seem as though finally the thumbscrews are...

Abraham leaving with Eugene and Glenn - The Walking Dead S5Ep3 Four Walls and a Roof Review

The Walking Dead S5Ep3 Four Walls and a Roof Review

This week’s episode TWD was hotly anticipated, the previous episode ‘Strangers’ ended on a significant cliffhanger. Was Bob infected by walker? Will Gareth die when he eats Bob’s meat? And what the hell are Daryl and Carol up to chasing Beth’s kidnapper? The latter issues won’t be resolved in ‘Four Walls and a Roof’ which deals primarily with Gareth’s attempt to kill and eat everyone in Rick’s group and Gabriel admission of what he had to do to stay alive. It is a good episode, its timeline spans just a few night-time hours which will have significant consequences for the rest of...

Helix Season 2 Teaser Trailer Logo

Helix Season 2 Teaser Trailer

Syfy has just released a teaser trailer for the upcoming second season of Helix, the high-concept show produced by BSG guru Ronald D. Moore. The first season proofed it had a lot of promise, but it could at times be burdened by the cumbersome backstory that had to be told of how Dr. Alan Farragut (played by Billy Campbell) deals with a viral outbreak at a remote arctic research station. The 13 episodes could also differ in quality especially near the end as the audience demanded resolution to some of the story elements while new elements were also introduced to keep the...

Avengers Age Of Ultron Trailer Released - Super Iron Man suit

Avengers Age Of Ultron Trailer Released

Due to the leak of an copy of the Avengers Age Of Ultron trailer online Marvel has decided to officially release it a week earlier. Set to the tune of an alternate version of Pinocchio’s ‘there are no strings on me’ we have a 2 minute and 16 second Ultron fest. The Avengers by comparison seem defeated and divided, but of course it wouldn’t be a movie if the superheroes aren’t rock bottom during the story. At this stage it is too early to say what the movie’s premise is other than the villain Ultron’s attempt at taking over the world. Ultron is voiced by...
