Revolution ‘Sex and Drugs’ Review! +Update – More Tracy Spiridakos images!

After a two-week break Revolution is back with the episode entitled ‘Sex and Drugs’. So far the series is progressing at a steady pace, the storyline seems if anything quite able to keep some secrets from the audience without getting boring. Most fans have so far been a bit irate over matters such as the acting of certain actors and how like Terra Nova the plot seems to focus a bit too much on teen angst. Personally I am not really...

Fringe The Bullet that Saved the World Review!

Fringe The Bullet that Saved the World Review!

Fringe is back after a two week break with its fourth episode of the season entitled ‘The bullet that Saved the World’. The title is a reference to the actual bullet that Etta wears in a necklace which was used by Walter to shoot Olivia. This episode of Fringe tries to up the ante by killing of Etta (Georgina Haig) at the end, a decisions which I didn’t really agree with because I just started to get to know her. As for the...

Defiance trailer online!

Defiance trailer online!

Defiance is a new sci-fi series from the Syfy Channel that will probably air earlier next. The series is kind of special as the Syfy channel is more famous for cancelling shows than starting ones, and has been for at least five years. Just kidding, Syfy Channel is trying to get back to it’s roots after a foray into the celebrity-ghost wrestling scene. So far they have gotten off to a difficult start, the prequel series to Battlestar Galactica has...

Fringe The Recordist Review!

Fringe The Recordist Review!

This week’s episode of Fringe takes a little step back from the action and uses it’s time to deepen out the background story of the world that has been taken over by the Observers. My first impressions were perhaps one of apprehension in that the story doesn’t move forward as much, but now that I have had time to reflect on the episode I have changed my mind. Just like in last weeks episode it is the small touches that really make...

Revolution ‘Soul Train’ Preview and ‘The Plague Dogs’ Review!

The fifth episode of Revolution is called ‘Soul Train’ and by the looks of the previews pictures and trailer it is going to push this series into a higher gear, the previous four episode are thus no more than an introductory to help set the story and the world of Revolution. Last episode of course saw the death of Maggie (Anna Lise Phillips) which the shows creators readily admit was a blatant attempt to create drama and show that the...

Revolution Episode 2 ‘Chained Heat’ Preview!

Revolution Episode 2 ‘Chained Heat’ Preview!

The second episode of Revolution is entitled ‘Chained Heat’. It essentially continues were the pilot stopped with Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos) and her uncle Miles Matheson (Billy Burke) heading back home. The mysterious device seen in the last scene of the pilot which can undo the electric dampening effect (at least locally) seems to make a return in the second episode. The storyline of Captain Tom Neville and Charlie’s brother Danny Matheson (Graham Rogers) serves as the b-plot as Neville tries to follow his orders...

The first epsiode of the second season of Perosn of Interest will air next Thursday September 27th. Now, as for The Contingency, below is the press release… “The Contingency” – With Finch...
