Fringe ‘The End of all Things’ Preview!

Fringe ‘The End of all Things’ Preview!

So far season 4 of Fringe hasn’t been all that captivating. It has been OK in a time when just being OK isn’t really good enough. Last weeks ratings of Fringe once again dipped under the three million mark with a viewer rating of 2.99 million. This weeks episode of Fringe is entitled ‘The end of all things’ and is focused on the mythology. In some respects I am becoming rather tired with the mythology, it isn’t as captivating as it once...

Alcatraz ‘Johnny McKee’ Preview!

Alcatraz ‘Johnny McKee’ Preview!

Last weeks episode of Alcatraz, ‘Paxton Petty’, was a huge improvement over the previous hit-and-miss episodes. It was still a little formalistic but it combined a very dark story with broad character development. It is a shame that over the last few weeks the series has started to take a nose-dive in the ratings. I guess viewers aren’t as forgiving of the unpolished nature of Alcatraz. This weeks episode is entitled ‘Johnny McKee’ and deals with a poisoner, a rather unusual kind of murderer. Like...

It would feature the crew of the Enterprise-E and be released in october. David Mack has now updated his blog with details surrounding each of the instalments in the trilogy.   Here are the details.

Fringe ‘A Better Human Being’ review!

Fringe ‘A Better Human Being’ review!

‘A Better Human Being’ is a very character driven episode of Fringe, after a season where this kind of story telling alternated with action-scenes it is pleasant to finally see progression in the characters. The relationship between Olivia and Peter is the main driving force behind the character development but it certainly also affects Walter Bishop, his character is a lot more focused in this episode and even chastises Peter for what he believes to be a bad influence on Olivia....

Lockout (Maximum Security One) Poster Online!

Lockout (Maximum Security One) Poster Online!

Here is the official poster for the forthcoming low-budget sci-fi movie Lockout! The movie stars Guy Pearce (LA Confidential) and Maggie Grace (Lost). Sometime ago we showed you the teaser trailer and frankly the movie had all the hallmarks of B-movie, last week another trailer surfaced and I must say it changes my whole perception of this flick. Here is that trailer… As the poster suggest the movie is to be released on April 20th.

Eureka back in April for its fifth and final season!

Eureka back in April for its fifth and final season!

In a press release Syfy Channel has announced its spring line-up of shows, this includes Eureka which will then première its fifth and final season. As you might expect the rest of the line-up is complete rubbish, ranging from wrestling, reality-horror shows and combinations of both! Its sad to think that the only shows that really matters on Syfy channel is about to end. As for Alphas and Warehouse 13, expect those back in the summer. Here is part of the...

Prometheus International trailer revealed!

Prometheus International trailer revealed!

Last month the official teaser trailer for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was released and now the international market will get its own trailer, albeit one very similar to the teaser trailer. Alas it contains little new footage but somehow its a lot more crisp. We also have the official synopsis for the movie… Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team...

Person of Interest ‘Blue Code’ Preview!

Person of Interest ‘Blue Code’ Preview!

Although I have said from day one that Person of Interest makes for good TV the sci-fi elements have so far been very light. Slowly that is changing, in the last few weeks with the introduction of the character Will Ingram (who is the son of Nathan Ingram) this has changed as ‘The Machine’ is being alluded to as an AI that can interact with its surroundings. The audience is lead to believe that ‘The Machine’ has run amok and can hear almost any conversation, this was demonstrated when...

Fringe ‘A Better Human Being’ Preview!

Fringe ‘A Better Human Being’ Preview!

After last weeks cliff-hanger ending we are all keen to see what happens between Peter and Olivia. Will she keep any memory from the present or are they all replaced with those from the previous timeline. Of course the business with David Robert Jones continuous and between the two plot threads we sure get good TV. unfortunately the same cannot be said for the ratings, in the last few weeks they seemed to be stabilizing but with last weeks episode went down again...

Alcatraz ‘Paxton Petty’ Review!

Alcatraz ‘Paxton Petty’ Review!

A few days back when I previewed this weeks episode of Alcatraz I went on a rant about all the deficiencies of this show. I suggested that at times it was repetitive, convoluted, didn’t represent certain characters well enough and had a lack of mystery despite the creators best efforts. In a rather strange twist in the tale it would seem that this weeks episodes of Alcatraz, entitled ‘Paxton Petty’, solves almost all of those deficiencies. In many ways his episode is a...

Dr Who + Star Trek TNG Comic crossover cover revealed!

Dr Who + Star Trek TNG Comic crossover cover revealed!

A couple of days ago the first rumors started that IDW (the publishers of Star Trek and Dr Who comics) intended to publish crossover issues that would see the doctor and the crew of Enterprise-D work together. Normally I don’t write anything on comic news because I read them only in passing once in a while but this franchise really caught my I. Yesterday the new came that the antagonists for this tory were non other than the Cybermen and the Borg. Today, IDW released the...

Hot legs of Emily Blunt - The Adjustment Bureau

The Adjustment Bureau DVD Review!

I finally managed to get the DVD of The Adjustment Bureau reviewed, this Sci-fi movie has a plot that is inspired by Philip K. Dicks short story ‘The Adjustment Team’. The movie was directed by George Nolfi whose only other movie that is notable is The Bourne Ultimatum. The Adjustment Bureau stars veteran actor Matt Damon and relative newcomer Emily Blunt. As for the story… On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, ambitious politician David Norris (Damon) meets...

Alcatraz ‘Paxton Petty’ Preview!

Alcatraz ‘Paxton Petty’ Preview!

Tomorrow the sixth episode of Alcatraz airs, it is entitled ‘Paxton Petty’, a reference to yet another criminal that has returned. So far the entire matter of returning Alcatraz inmates is shrouded in mystery, something that is slowly getting on my nerves as this show seems to lose the ‘suspense of disbelief’ factor that shows like Fringe, Lost and The X-files managed for far longer. The drama on this show is OK, the background story of the returning criminals and wardens is certainly...
