The Expanse S03E02 IFF Review - Elizabeth Mitchell as Rev. Dr. Anna Volovodov

The Expanse S03E02 IFF Review – Elizabeth Mitchell will make her entrance

The Expanse S03E02 IFF Review After Westworld and Altered Carbon, The Expanse is probably the best Sci-Fi show around. Now into its third season Syfy has continued to expand the story and its cast. Based on current book series by authors James S. A. Corey, the show features a cold war style standoff between Earth and Mars – after the latter has been colonized. Tempers easily flare, especially as powers are manipulating both sides towards a war. Some have compared The Expanse as a Game of Thrones type show set in space. I think that is fair. Just like GoT it...

Once Upon A Time Review of Darkness on the Edge of Town

With Haven on hiatus and Rick and the gang walking around Alexandria I thought it would be a good idea to try something new. This is my first Once Upon A Time Review. I have watched Once Upon A Time on an on/off basis for a while. Whenever Haven sucks, I’ll watch this show and vice versa. So far the first half of season 4 has been decent, strangely enough so was Haven. The addition of Elizabeth Mitchell felt special. Her depiction of Snow Queen was both tragic and heartfelt. Though her sudden disappearance raised more questions as did her storyline in...

Keanu Reeves and Roland Emmerich produce New Angeles

Keanu Reeves and Roland Emmerich produce New Angeles Stargate director Roland Emmerich and The Matrix star Keanu Reeves are working together on a new sci-fi TV series. According to Deadline producer David Ellender has set up a production company for the show which is tentatively called ‘New Angeles’. The basic premise sounds somewhat familiar, especially considering Keanu Reeves is involved. ‘Set in the future, the series centers on a young man who escapes the mundane reality of his life by entering an exciting virtual reality world called New Angeles. Once down the rabbit hole, he adopts a new identity, becoming the man...

Revolution S2Ep22 Series Finale Declaration of Independence Review

Eric Kripke’s Revolution has ended prematurely after two seasons. The show that was produced by Bad Robot Productions, J.J. Abrams and Jon Favreau drew criticism from the very first episode onwards. The series had a lot of promise with its innovative premise of trying to imagine what happens after all the electricity in the world fails. Sadly, the show also felt rushed. The first ten episodes saw Charlie (Tracy Spriridakos), Miles (Billy Burke) and Aaron (Zak Orth) go on a endless road march to free Charlie’s brother and mother. The drama too often got in the way of the action which was...

NBC Cancels Revolution after two seasons

During yesterdays review of the latest episode of Revolution I actively speculated that the show would be cancelled. Well, its has been. NBC is pulling the show of the air after just two seasons. In just a week’s time another Bad Robot Productions show is being cancelled. Some bloggers have started to catch on to the fact that many of J.J Abrams produced shows go prematurely to the dodo. Just like Alcatraz and Almost Human Revolution felt underdeveloped from the start. The rushed production irritated viewers as writers made arbitrary choices with their characters. Revolution and indeed the cancellation of Almost Human seems...

Revolution S2Ep20 Tomorrowland Review

It has been a while since I last posted a review of Revolution. The show has seen a remarkable improvement in quality during its second season. However, a 22 episode season is also far too long. The second half of season 2 saw the storyline slowing down and becoming repetitive. Only now that we are moving towards the season finale is it moving forward again. Season 2 also suffered from the lack of intriguing villain. Somehow, despite the mean cruelty of the Patriots they lack… well, epicness! There is nothing like seeing David Lyons as General Monroe ordering his helicopters airborne to...

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 is the meatier part of the story and it is pretty good too. Mis Dos Padre Aaron meets Grace in Spring...

Revolution S2Ep8 ‘Come Blow Your Horn’ Review!

I am sorry that I didn’t review last weeks episode of Revolution, but all you need to know is that Monroe lived through his death sentence. Almost immediately the series switched gears and showed more of how the US government, or Patriots, work behind the scene. The patriots are season two’s latest antagonists and I guess we will have to forgive the show creators of not explaining just they became to powerful so quickly. I mean, where are the remnant armies of Georgia and the Monroe Republic? Anyway, this weeks episode is called ‘Come Blow Your Horn’ and contrary to...

Monroe (David Lyons) and Charlie Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos) finally make it to Willoughby - Revolution

Revolution S2Ep5 ‘One Riot, One Ranger’ Review!

Revolution seems to be on a winning streak as of late. I personally had my doubts whether the ‘patriots’ would be any good as antagonists but so far season 2 has not disappointed. This weeks episode ‘One Riot, One Ranger’ is very effective in increasing both the scope of the Revolution’s universe as well as in furthering the character storylines. Just as in previous weeks I will deal with each group of characters separately. Though when I say group it is down to two as Monroe and Charlie managed to get to Willoughby. Where is Walker Texas Ranger when you need him?...

Revolution S2Ep4 ‘Patriot Games’ review!

After a good start to its second season Revolution takes a break with an episode that doesn’t really move the story forward much but instead sets the stage for further development. The good thing about ‘Patriot Games’ is that we get answers to a number of vital questions at the cost of a story that at times just doesn’t want to move forward. Just like past episodes of season 2 I will briefly recap the developments of each storyline. Charlie & Monroe; their storyline continues right were it left off. Charlie seeks shelter at an inn but is accosted by unsavory men until...

Revolution S2Ep2 ‘There Will Be Blood’ Review

Revolution is one of those shows that everyone at times seems to love to hate. Season 1 for that matter got a lot of flak. Despite being a Bad Robot productions series it hardly lived up to the quality of other shows such as Lost, Fringe and Person of Interest. Instead it came closer to Alcatraz in that it wasn’t bad but it felt rushed. Revolution certainly does feel rushed, or at least its first season did. I myself wasn’t a Charlie hater though I did see problems with her role in the series. Instead I tuned in to General Monroe, Major Neville...

Revolution season 2 trailer from Comic-Con!

The Comic-Con bliss continues with NBC releasing a lengthy preview trailer of Revolution’s second season. The trailer starts as so many before it with a brief recap of events of the first season. Then it shows the rather disheartening moments after Randall Flynn launches the ICBM’s at Philadelphia and Atlanta. It would seem that Aaron’s attempt at switching off the electricity to shut down the missiles will be in vain. That much has already been revealed by other sources. The trailer than moves on to give us glimpses of various storylines of the season 2. Here is a summary. General Monroe (David...

Revolution season 1 finale ‘The Dark Tower’ Review!

The finale. And so the first season of Revolution has ended. To many it should be it’s only season but we will be getting another one at the end of the year. I have not yet decided whether Revolution deserves a reprieve as it is very rough and certainly not all diamond underneath. The season finale ‘The Dark Tower’ tries its best to make up for all the mistake and give viewers a reason to tune back in this fall and for the most part it succeeds. The plot. So, briefly I will discuss the major plot point from the episode. General...

Revolution S1 episode 18 ‘Children of Men’ Review!

Revolution has been a in a dark place for some episodes now. At first the second half of season 1 saw some good improvements but quickly episodes started stalling and make impossible leaps in character development. The low point was when Monroe’s right hand man Jeremy Baker (Mark Pellegrino) was killed off. Last weeks episode was a bit of an improvement but it still forced Charlie and Miles in particular to fly in a helicopter they had stolen in order to join Monroe, Rachel and Aaron at ‘The Tower’. This weeks episode entitled ‘Children of Men’ lays the groundwork for next weeks...

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. Another reason that makes this announcement very odd is that Revolution has been steadily dropping in the ratings. The ratings...

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 as Neville disappears and word reaches him that Jason is with the rebels. Miles, Charlie and Nora infiltrate the Georgia...
