Almost Human - Kennex and Dorian final scene

Almost Human S1Ep13 Season Finale ‘Straw Man’ Review

After not doing a preview of this weeks episode of Almost Human I completely missed that yesterday’s episode was also its seasons finale. Almost Human is sadly one of those shows that ahs to make do a with a half season of just 13 episodes. After the partial reboot of the show after episode 9 the stakes have risen and the cliffhanger at the end of ‘Straw Man’ proofs. I will miss Almost Human, hopefully just because it’s a long...

Helix S1Ep8 ‘Bloodline’ Review!

After Jeri Ryan’s spectacular entrance as Constance Sutton, a cold-blooded corporate genocidal murderess, Helix was in need of a brief break from last weeks fast paced events. Bloodline offers this break by first concentrating on giving every character some time to deal with the latest revelations. After this has been accomplished the second part of the episode moves into a higher gear for the confrontation between Hatake and Sutton, which I can spoiler, does not disappoint. Bloodline Julia, Allan and Sarah...

A Day in the Future Chapter 8

Read the first 2 chapters of ‘A Day In The Future’!

Well, it’s Monday and the last article I wrote was the review of the seventh episode of Helix on Saturday. When I am not busy with college or work I tried to write an article every two days or so. However, Monday has been a slow news day. Sure, the two teaser trailers for Star Wars: Rebels are nice but chances are you would have already seen those before you reached my blog. The same goes for the behind the...

Helix - Survivor Zero - Jeri Ryan as Constance Sutton

Helix S1Ep7 ‘Survivor Zero’ Review

Jeri Ryan’s spectacular entrance as Constance Sutton, a Ilaria Corporation bigshot, was a welcome addition to what has been a restrictive character roll over the first 6 episodes. Her character changes the dynamics of pretty much every relationship. Suddenly Hatake does not seem to be all that bad, though his personal motivation stay unknown. Major Balleseros also knows Ms. Sutton as is evidenced by their sexual contact after she beats him up. And despite Alan’s escapades with Sarah he also...

Almost Human - Perception - Karl urban as Kennex suffering from flashbacks

Almost Human S1Ep10 ‘Perception’ Review

Last weeks episode of Almost Human practically rebooted the series and re-introduced The Syndicate as the main villains. This week’s episode ‘Perception’ also introduces new features to the show such as Detective Stahl’s genetic enhancements and Kennex’s drug addiction that was last mentioned in the pilot episode. Both this episode and that of last week make up for some of the deficiencies of the first 8 episodes, namely a future world that seemed far too shallow and little in the...

Helix - Jeri Ryan as Constance Sutton

Helix S1Ep6 ‘Aniqatiga’ Review

After the first 4 episodes Helix finally seems to have found some solid ground. The episodes have developed a certain rhythm of generating both small and large crises that led to cliffhangers and unexpected denouements. I use the word rhythm as the show hardly has any procedural aspects such as found in Almost Human or Person Of Interest. Instead the serialized nature of the plots keep reminding me of Lost. This weeks episode ‘Aniqatiga’ seems to conclude the trilogy of...

Agents of SHIELD - Skye near death

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D S1Ep13 T.R.A.C.K.S. Review!

Let me start by apologizing for being absent for almost two weeks. I was very busy for my masters degree which does have to take precedence over my love for Science-Fiction. Luckily it has been a quiet week with our favorite shows such as Almost Human, Person of Interest of course  Agents of SHIELD only returning to air this week. I can highly recommend you check out he latest Almost Human episode as it almost feels like a reboot of...

Helix - Single Strand - Man in the gas mask

Helix episode 4 ‘Single Strand’ Preview!

Next Friday the fourth episode of Helix will air. Unfortunately this episode wasn’t available on the website of Syfy Channel early like episode 3, so it will be almost two weeks since episode 3 and I am already feeling the Helix withdrawal symptoms. Episode 4 is entitled ‘Single Strand’ and seem bent on progressing the storyline beyond the first stages of the pilot and the two successor episodes as Dr. Alan Farragut and his team explore what the deadly pathogen...

The X-files to return for 6 episodes. Gillian Anderson hot in sexy lingerie.

Gillian Anderson to author Science-Fiction saga ‘EarthEnd’

The X-files has been over for more than a decade, the show was briefly back in 2008 with the movie ‘I Want To Believe’ but that has been the only sci-fi outing for co-star Gillian Anderson in recent years. We have instead had the pleasure of seeing her acting in movie such as ‘Boogie Woogie’ and shows such as ‘Hannibal’ and ‘The Fall’. However, the 45-year-old X-files alumni is set to return to her sci-fi roots in a big way. Next year...

Helix - 274 - Dr. Julia Walker (Kyra Zagorsky) approached by infected Sulamani

Helix S1Ep3 ‘274’ Review

The first two episodes of Helix that aired last week brought about some strong emotions on various comment boards. Despite both episodes receiving good reviews and praise from fans there were plenty who despaired with arguments such as ‘it isn’t as good as Lost’, ‘it’s the X-file with all the black goo’ and ‘it’s going to be like The Walking Dead’. Now is the time that I need to remind myself that comment boards are the place were 12 year olds and...

Revolution - Mis Dos Padre - Joaquim De Almeida as the Cartel leader

Revolution S2Ep11 ‘Mis Dos Padres’ Review!

This weeks episode continues where the last one left off, Miles and Rachel are going to attempt to rescue Monroe after he has been captured by a drug cartel in Mexico. That is kind-off all you need to know. There are three more storylines, those of the Neville’s, Aaron/Ex-wife and Charlie/Gene that never really get off the ground properly. I guess we will have to wait for those to get interesting some other time. In this episode, the Monroe/Miles/Rachel storyline...

Star Wars Episode 7 Preview & Casting News!

Reporting the news around Star Wars  Episode 7 is a hard thing to do as frankly we know very little that is official. The news that is reported is often so little and based on rumors that it is either unworthy to report or you can wait a week for it to be confirmed or debunked. However, one story that keeps being reported is that the script for Episode 7 is still unfinished even though production for the movie was started months ago....

Helix - Pilot - Kyra Zagorsky as Dr. Julia Walker and Jordan Hayes as Dr. Sarah Jordan

Helix S1Ep1&2 ‘Pilot’ & ‘Vector’ Review

Helix is a show that does little new. Instead it uses known horror and science fiction devices together with a compelling character driven story to drive viewers to the edge of their seat. In many ways the show reminds me of Ridley Scott’s movie Alien, still considered the best B-movie ever made in that it introduced nothing new besides the story and special effects but relied on known cinematic shots such as claustrophobic close-ups to create a terrorizing atmosphere. Helix uses similar...

Person of Interest Logo - Jonathan Nolan starring Jim Caviezel & Michael Emerson

Person Of Interest S3Ep13 ‘4C’ Preview

Last week’s episode of PoI ‘Aletheia’ was one hell of ride. The C.I.A led by Control and Hersh finally caught up with Harold and Shaw. Only the gun-blazing intervention of Root saved them but she was captured instead. During the torture she had to endure Root revealed that she can hear sound waves inaudible to others and thus can receive information from The Machine. Speaking as is she were The Machine she made it clear how she could hurt Control...
