American Gods “The Secret of Spoons” Review

American Gods American Gods is one of the most highly anticipated shows of 2017. I think the other one is Star Trek Discovery. The show, which airs on Starz, is based on the 2001 novel by Neil Gaiman. The premise of the story is simple enough. The ancient and mythological gods exist, because people believe in them. Odin, Bilquis and Easter are just a few to mention. So far so good. Enter Shadow Moon, played by Ricky Whittle, a former convict who acts...

The X-Files S10Ep6 My Struggle II Preview

The X-Files S10Ep6 My Struggle II Preview This evening the last episode of The X-Files revival will air on Fox. The sixth episode, entitled My Struggle II, will conclude the tenth season with a story focused on the conspiracy. So far, that has not been the high-point of the season which started somewhat underwhelming. If, however, the last episode ends up being a good one the question arises whether or not the show should continue. I for one think it should....

Scully and Mulder talk about William. X-Files S10E04 Home Again Review

X-Files S10E04 Home Again Review

X-Files S10E04 Home Again Review After last weeks excellent episode few had the expectation that Home Again would be just as good. Fox had already chosen to switch around this episode with the previous to make up for the first two. Don’t get me wrong. They were good episodes, but not brilliant. The same can be said for Home Again. It is essentially a ‘Monster-of-the-week’ episode that starts very familiar. In the midst of a dispute about relocating as group of...

The X-Files – New promo and poster show Scully and Mulder teaming up

The X-Files – I Still Want To Believe! On January 24th The X-files will be back with a new 6-episode season after 15 years. I believe (no pun intended) that most fans will have firmly pinned the date on their calendar. Yet it seems that even with all the promotions and articles it is hard to get really excited. We have all been burned before by remakes, reboots and re-visits. For me this new the X-files miniseries has always been...

Star Citizen Preview – Chris Roberts strikes back at doubters at the 2015 CitizenCon

Star Citizen is back! Last weekend the founder of Cloud Imperium Games, Chris Roberts, held the annual CitizenCon in Manchester. For some years he has been busy developing Star Citizen, an ambitious MMO-space simulator that harkens back to his early years (Wing Commander and Freelancer). After some delays, the release date has shifted to early 2017 for the MMO part and 2016 for the single player campaign. Chris Roberts came under attack from rival game-designer Derek Smart for being the reason the game...

First X-files Revival footage from FOX

X-files Revival… Courtesy of a revamped Blastr.com I bring you a very brief teaser trailer of the new X-Files miniseries. The trailer is only 40 seconds long with most of it consists of scenes from season 1 to set the tone. However, fans clamoring for some footage of how our favorite characters will look like when the series airs next years won’t be disappointed. Both Scully and Mulder are briefly seen at the very end when they enter a darkened room with...

Preview of Chris Carter’s X-Files miniseries revival

X-Files miniseries revival Just like the shortened season of 24 last year it took almost no time for The X-Files to get a new series as well. Chris Carter is back at the helm of a shortened six episode season which is filming right now. If that wasn’t enough I have for a weeks been enjoying the original X-Files in glorious 1080p thanks to Netflix. I will do a retro review of the first two season some other time. Right...

Hannibal Season 3 Premiere ‘Antipasto’ Review

Hannibal Season 3 Premiere… Hannibal is back for more murderously beautiful meals in what is already the third season of the show starring Mads Mikkelson (A Royal Affair and Casino Royale). After two seasons of non-stop slaughters, attempts to frame Will Graham and dealing with the FBI Hannibal finally attempts to re-invent himself as a medieval scholar in Florence, Italy. After the bloodbath that was the season 2 finale the show had not other recourse but to try a reboot. Hannibal had...

The X-files to return for 6 episodes

The X-files to return for 6 episodes Fans of the X-files can finally rejoice. After much speculation and half-confirmed rumors Fox is finally moving forward with a new X-files series. It will be a six-episode event series starring Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully and David Duchovny as Fox Mulder. A full season was mulled but because of scheduling conflicts it was cut down to just a short season. Last years success of 24: Live Another Day was in part inspiration to revive The X-files....

Gillian Anderson to author Science-Fiction saga ‘EarthEnd’

The X-files has been over for more than a decade, the show was briefly back in 2008 with the movie ‘I Want To Believe’ but that has been the only sci-fi outing for co-star Gillian Anderson in recent years. We have instead had the pleasure of seeing her acting in movie such as ‘Boogie Woogie’ and shows such as ‘Hannibal’ and ‘The Fall’. However, the 45-year-old X-files alumni is set to return to her sci-fi roots in a big way. Next year...
