Anna Torv to star in Mindhunter with David Fincher and Charlize Theron

Anna Torv to star in Netflix series Mindhunter produced by David Fincher

Mindhunter Ever since the end of Fringe in 2013 it has been quiet for Australian actress Anna Torv. She has starred in a few Australian productions but that’s it. A canceled TV show can have consequences but with her gravitas I hoped she would quickly star in another role. Now after almost 3 years she may get her break. Anna Torv is set to star in Mindhunter, a series produced by David Fincher and Charlize Theron for Netflix. Torv will...

Leonard Nimoy has died at age 83

Leonard Nimoy has died at age 83 Sadly it has been reported that veteran actor Leonard Nimoy has died at age 83. Most Science Fiction fans know Leonard from his role as Spock on Star Trek. More recently he had reprised his role in the 2009 Star Trek Reboot. His other sci-fi credentials include Fringe as Dr. William Bell as well as many small guest roles. Leonard Nimoy began his acting career in 1951 with a small part in the movie ‘Queen...

Fringe series finale ‘Liberty’ & ‘An Enemy of Fate’ Review!

Fringe series finale ‘Liberty’ & ‘An Enemy of Fate’ Review!

  Yesterday evening our favorite sci-fi show Fringe finally ended with an excellent pair of episodes, a journey that started in 2008 at what I think is still J.J Abrams high water mark. Fringe tried to brings elements from other shows such as The X-files and The Twilight Zone together in a more drama pact show. This was both the show’s greatest asset and liability as it offered both the familiar and the predictable. Fans were initially skeptical of Frine’s two lead characters played by...

Fringe Five-Twenty-Ten Review!

Fringe Five-Twenty-Ten Review!

Five-Twenty-Ten acts as a mid-season finale for Fringe’s fifth season. It quite effectively wraps up some left-over issues from season 4 such as what Nina Sharp and William Bell have been up to. This episode picks up the pace considerably and the suspense is definitely a lot greater than the usual procedural episodes of Fringe. So far I am liking the format of season 5, it compares starkly with season 4 which seemed sort of lost in action between season 3...

Fringe ‘An Origin Story’ Review

Fringe ‘An Origin Story’ Review

Fringe ‘An Origin Story’ deals with the direct aftermath of Etta’s death in the previous episode. In many ways it is a story of grief and revenge that has made Fringe suddenly more ‘real’ and less comic like. Previously our Fringe team tried to deal with every enemy through a plan that involved gadgets and  bravado, now the team uses sheer anger and violence to get back at the Observers. The story of ‘An Origin Story’… Peter (Joshua Jackson) and Olivia (Anna...

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...

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...

New Fringe Season 5 Pictures!

New Fringe Season 5 Pictures!

I know I haven’t updated SciFiEmpire.net for in like two weeks, but it has been hell with my academic career that I pursue besides my love for everything science-fiction. It would seem that I have my schedule reasonable sorted out so you can expect more regular updates from now on. Though I do hope someone ambitious will join as a contributor to SciFiEmpire.net. Prospective candidates so far have ranged from bots telling me how cheap shoes are in China to continental...

Fringe Season 5 Preview Trailer!

Fringe Season 5 Preview Trailer!

Fringe season 5 is set to start airing on September 28 and will last 13 episodes.

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ Part 2 Review!

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ Part 2 Review!

After 22 episodes the fourth season of Fringe is sadly over, though it wasn’t the best season it was still great. For some there was a fear that Fringe might get canceled but as looks like now Fringe will be back for a 13-episode fifth season to end the franchise. The second part of Brave New World does show however that the shows creators feared cancellation as they did tie up most of the storylines. Here is the episode’s plot…....

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ Part 2 Preview!

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ Part 2 Preview!

Friday night the finale of the fourth season of Fringe will air, though a 13-episode fifth season has been confirmed I can’t but help feeling that Fringe is already ending. In some respects this has to do with the rather disjointed storyline of the fourth season compared to the first three. The smaller story arcs were fun but when it was clear they all added up to the finale they seem to lose their meaning. Adding that some lower quality...

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ part 1 review!

Fringe ‘Brave New World’ part 1 review!

Its been a while since I have posted reviews of Fringe, quite frankly my studies have kept me very busy and the episodes of season 4 have so far been just tad under par compared to earlier seasons. They were for the most part still good and I am also happy to announce that Fringe has been confirmed for a fifth and last season that will span 13 episodes. That will bring the total to 100, the magic number for selling...
