Haven season 5 Preview

The fifth season of Syfy’s Haven is almost upon us, next Thursday on September 11th the first half of the season will start airing. Please note that the time slot has moved from Friday to Thursday, normally this is a good thing because Friday nights is considered to be the graveyard slot of TV. This season of Haven is as mentioned split up into two mini seasons of 13 episodes each. I personally have severe misgivings about this. The show has slipped from its high-water mark during season 3 mainly because of storylines that keep dragging on. In fact, season 4 was among the...

Syfy cancels Alphas!

Syfy cancels Alphas!

Syfy cancels alphas. And so there were none, after Eureka, Stargate Universe and Caprica Syfy Channel has axed its last true science-fiction show Alphas after just two seasons. You can count Continuum as being part of the Syfy Channel if you want to but that doesn’t alter the fact that Syfy Channel has been pretty much shooting down all the fan-favorite shows for over a decade now (Farscape, Stargate Atlantis, Sliders and Sanctuary to just name a few). At the moment that just leaves Haven and Warehouse 13 and they are both a bit light on the creative side as well as on the...

Alphas ‘Gaslight’ Preview!

Alphas ‘Gaslight’ Preview!

Next Monday’s episode of Alphas is entitled Gaslight, it would seem that it deals with the aftermath of Nina’s suicide attempt in the last episode and of course the hunt for Stanton Parrish. Sadly, the ratings for Alphas have continued to slide and are now for the first time below the 1 million mark. Below are two preview video’s… And in something totally new we also have an Alphas Digital Magazine, never heard of that one before… And here are the preview photos for ‘Gas Light’…

Alphas ‘The Quick and the Dead’ Preview!

Alphas ‘The Quick and the Dead’ Preview!

It looks like SciFiEmpire.net is moving up in the world, now that the site is getting an excellent number of readers everyday I am handed the information that you all read instead of having to scour the internet to find it. After multiple requests for interviews of some important actors and requests to urgently review promotional material I can now add Alphas to the list as well. Below you can find the promotional trailer for the second episode of the second season of Alphas, the episode is entitled ‘The Quick and the Dead’. Last week’s season opener was OK, it...

Alphas Season 2 Preview!

Alphas Season 2 Preview!

Next Monday Syfy Channel’s Alphas will be back for a second season of 13 episodes. This season is strangely enough highly anticipated by other websites despite the rather low ratings the first season got, alphas almost got cancelled last year. I can speak for myself and say that season 1 was a bit of a let down, I thought the plot lines were too jumbled together in order to legitimize the collection of characters that form the Alpha team. The show wasn’t lacking in action, drama or humor but it all felt a little rough. Season one guest star Summer Glau was a bright star in...

Alphas Season one final ‘Original Sin’ review!

Alphas Season one final ‘Original Sin’ review!

So, the first season of Alphas is a fact. In 11 episodes that have aired so far we have seen the concept of Alphas from very familiar (X-men and other superhero concepts) to being fresh and new. We have seen dull scripts that tried to give background information on dull characters and we have seen the writers of this show trying to genuinely give a good mic of action and drama. As you might have guessed from my tone the first season of Alphas was rather of mixed quality, most of the episodes dealing with the mythology were very good....

Preview of ‘Terra Nova’ and ‘Alphas’.

Preview of ‘Terra Nova’ and ‘Alphas’.

Tonight fans of scifi show will have yet again a full monday line up, but it will be one of the last weeks so. First of, tonight is the final episode of the first season of Alphas. The episode is entitled ‘Orginal sin’ and the synopsis are as follows. ‘Dr.Rosen and his team must choose sides when Red Flag launches a full-out assault on the Department of Defense.’ So it would appear that Alphas will try and stay true to the idea of a first season ending by going out with a bang. That reminds me, I didn’t write a...

Alphas Renewed for second season!

Alphas Renewed for second season!

Sorry dear readers for having been absent for more than a week and being a bit late with the customary triad of SyFy channel reviews but college has been hell at the moment and of course takes first priority. Be sure to know that the Warehouse 13 review is still in the making but last weeks episodes of Eureka and Alphas were below par and could be rated mediocre rather of hand. Speaking of mediocre I have the duty to report that Alphas starring David Strathairn and company has just been renewed for a another season of 13 episodes. The...

Alphas ‘Catch and release’ review!

Alphas ‘Catch and release’ review!

This weeks episode of Alphas is entitled ‘Catch and release’ and guest stars Summer Glau (Terminator series) as an old Alpha team acquitance who has the ability to make astonishing things from electronics. After seeing this episode I can say that I really feel reinvigorated about this series, because ever since the episode ‘Rosetta stone’ it has been misses and before that things weren’t much better. The series revisits the Alpha team connections with government agencies and their struggle with a group of rouge alphas called ‘Red Flag’. This episode sees the Summer Glau character ‘Skylar’ being chased by NSA...

Warehouse 13 and Alphas review!

Warehouse 13 and Alphas review!

I finally managed to get round finding time to write a review for this weeks episodes of Warehouse 13 and Alphas. Unfortunately, one reason why I delayed writing a review was that both episodes were mediocre as best this week. That’s why both reviews won’t be as extensive as normally as I have already described both shows shortcomings before and now like a perfect storm they found their way into these episodes. Warehouse 13 ‘Don’t hate the player’ , starts of quite well, a geeky friend of Fargo (Eureka) anxiously calls up saying he can’t wake him and a friend...

Alphas ‘Never Let Me Go’ review!

Alphas ‘Never Let Me Go’ review!

‘Never let me go’ is the latest episode of Alphas. After last weeks excellent episode I was really anticipating this one as well. Though it is ultimately not as good as last weeks we do get to see the alphas formula starting to mature, and it doesn’t disappoint. The story is simple enough, there are unexplained deaths at a highschool and the Alpha team is sent to investigate. This week they got badges and they now belong to DCIS (DCIS!!!! as gary likes to put it). The episode is Rachel centric meaning we learn more about her families difficult history and her attempts to...

Alphas ‘Rosetta’ review and ‘Never let me go’ preview!.

Alphas ‘Rosetta’ review and ‘Never let me go’ preview!.

Finally did I manage to get round to reviewing last weeks episode of Alphas. It maybe summer holiday for others but not for me, which is really a shame because last weeks episode of Alphas just rocked! It was entitled ‘Rosetta’ in reference, obviously, to the Rosetta stone which helped decipher the ancient Egyptian language. This episode is the first since the pilot to really move forward the Alphas mythology. Remember from the pilot that Cameron had been recruited into Dr Rosen’s Alpha group after he had tried to assassinate government witnesses who were involved in studying Alphas. It was revealed he was...

New SyFy channel series ‘Alphas’ airs july 11th.

New SyFy channel series ‘Alphas’ airs july 11th.

 The much touted new Syfy channel series ‘Alphas’ will definitely air on July 11th. The series is a superhero/sci-fi themed story about five individuals (alphas) who discover they have special abilities. Each specializes in one ability and together they try to rid New York from evil. At first this seems like another attempt on behalf of the Syfy channel to produce a series that would appeal to a greater audience by treating the Science-Fiction elements lightly. We will have to see if their attempts to come up with a series that isn’t as excentric as Fringe nor as uselessly techie as Numbers will...
