Watch Dogs to be released in November!

Watch Dogs to be released in November!

Ubisoft has formally announced that their upcoming ‘hack-the-city’ third person shooter Watch Dogs (officially Watch_Dogs) is to be released on November 19th in the US and on the 22nd in Europe. The announcements places the release a little bit closer us as some commentators had already feared that the game would slip into 2014. The game will be released on PC and all current consoles (Xbox-360, ps3 and Wii U!). The next generation consoles such as PS4 and Xbox-720 will also get their...

Continuum S2E2 ‘Split Second’ Review!

Continuum S2E2 ‘Split Second’ Review!

After viewing the second episode is this season of Continuum I have finally managed to find an episode that I honestly didn’t like. Just like season one’s weakest episode ‘Playtime’ this episode, entitled ‘Split Second’, is a bit out there… However, ‘Split Second’ is too convoluted and has too many arbitrary twists and turns to make it a really enjoyable showing. Split Second follows two storylines. The first is about Kiera and Carlos escorting Travis to a new prison after he killed...

Revolution renewed for second season – NO JOKE!

Revolution renewed for second season – NO JOKE!

Yes, its true… NBC has officially renewed their supposed ‘flagship’ for another season. Personally this gives me mixed feelings. Revolution is an OK show and I certainly don’t want to see any sci-fi series get cancelled. However, there are plenty of things wrong with Revolution that would make we doubt anyone is really interested in a second season. I can almost imagine the show being wrapped up confidently after just one season. The opposite of ‘Lost’ if you get my drift....

Defiance – Episode 3 review & Episode 4 preview!

Defiance – Episode 3 review & Episode 4 preview!

Finally I am here with a review of the third episode of Defiance. It won’t be a full review but I will at least discuss the most salient details. I will also give a short preview of the fourth episode ‘The Devil In the Dark’ that will air Monday evening. Episode 3 Recap… The third episode ‘Down In the Ground Where the Dead Men Go’ takes off were the pilot stopped. Datak is punishing one of his fellow Castithan for fleeing...

Vash played by Jennifer Hetrick - Captain's Holiday - Star Trek The Next Generation

Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 3 Blu-Ray Review!

Finally the third season of Star Trek TNG has arrived on Blu-ray. Fans have been waiting for this season ever since the Blu-ray release scheme was initially announced. As despite the first two season having their moments in the sun it is the third season that finally allowed The Next Generation to mature. This was largely due to a change in the creative staff with people like Gene Roddenberry and Maurice Hurley being kicked to the curb and being replaced...

Revolution ‘The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia’ Review!

Revolution ‘The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia’ Review!

As there is much to see on TV these days I will just write a mini review of Revolutions latest episode. As the title may spoiler the episode finally takes us to the  Georgia Federation were President Foster (Leslie Hope) holds the scepter. Rachel and Aaron meanwhile make their way to the Rocky Mountains but stop by an old acquaintance who reveals more secrets about the nanites. The plot outline for ‘The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia’… Paranoia strikes Monroe deeply...

Continuum Season 2 Premiere ‘Second Chances’ Review!

Continuum Season 2 Premiere ‘Second Chances’ Review!

Second Chances is the first episode of Continuum second season. Continuum is a sci-fi TV-series produced by Showcase, but Syfy channel will also air the episodes starting on June 7th. Continuum stars Rachel Nichols as from the future CPS Protector Kiera Cameron who has teamed up with detective Carlos Fonnegra (Victor Webster), a cop from the present.

Continuum season 2 starts on Showcase tonight!

Continuum season 2 starts on Showcase tonight!

Tonight on Showcase Continuum will be back for its second season with the episode ‘Second Chances’. For those who don’t subscribe to Showcase, Syfy will start airing it from June 7th onward. Syfy Channel for that matter seems to have adopted Continuum as a show of its own. Season 1 may be best considered a rough diamond whose edges need to be smoothed. As it has been a somewhat disappointing year for Science-fiction on TV I am excited with Continuum’s attempt at...

Defiance ‘Pilot’ Review!

Defiance ‘Pilot’ Review!

Defiance is Syfy’s latest TV-show and it didn’t come a moment too soon. Syfy has been accused of ignoring its roots in favor of reality TV. Despite a rather slow start to Defiance I do think that this show has a lot of potential. Defiance… The pilot episode as such deals mostly with the characters of Joshua Nolan and his foster daughter Irisa Nyira as they try to reap benefits from Arkfalls. After Irisa is wounded they seek help in Defiance. Before long both are involved in the towns...

First Continuum Season 2 Trailer Online!

First Continuum Season 2 Trailer Online!

Well, the wait is almost over! Starting April 21st Continuum will be back for its second season on Showcase. Syfy viewers will have to wait until June though. For season 2 there is now an official teaser trailer featuring most of the principal cast. A central theme of the promo trailer seems to be how present actions can influence the far future. Season 1 sort of left this in the air with the young Alec Sadler (Erik Knudsen) stating that...

Syfy Channel developing 7 new sci-fi series!

Syfy Channel developing 7 new sci-fi series!

These days the only thing the Syfy Channel is good for is a good bashing. After killing of Alphas, Eureka, Caprica, Farscape and Stargate Atlantis who can blame me. Now it appears that the people at Syfy believe the company should get back to it’s root. They have announced the production of 7 new series. It is not clear whether all seven would actually air on the Syfy Channel or that they are produced for other channels as UPC and several other cable...

‘On The Steel Breeze’ cover of next Alastair Reynolds novel revealed!

‘On The Steel Breeze’ cover of next Alastair Reynolds novel revealed!

Alastair Reynolds has been one of my favorite sci-fi authors for over a decade now. Along with writers such as Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross he has caused nothing short of a veritable British Science Fiction renaissance. Reynolds is of course famous for his Revelation space novels which includes the epic Chasm City. This last novel still holds a very special place in my heart. However, after this series of novels Reynolds published some stories that were thought provoking but had...

Review of Revolution – The Song Remains the Same

Review of Revolution – The Song Remains the Same

Review of Revolution – The Song Remains the Same…. Last week’s episode of Revolution ‘Ghost’ was a very effective pace setting episode. It redirected Revolution away from the ‘save Danny’ story arc from the first half of the show. However, many fans were upset with the myriad of goofs and flaws in the episode. Bringing a sword to a gun fight is still something the writers need to ‘make work’. This week’s episode, ‘The Song Remains the Same’, has fewer...
