2019 Most anticipated Sci-Fi Series

If you are curious which Sci-Fi series will be the best in 2019 and you don’t want to miss any of them. Well, read my little list below… Another Life I make little effort to disguise that one of my favorite actresses is Katee Sackhoff. From playing Starbuck on the Battlestar Galactica reboot to Vic Moretti on Longmire I have probably watched most of her work. This year she will star in Another Life – a Sci-Fi drama created for Netflix. In the series Katee will play Niko Breckinridge, an astronaut tasked with exploring the origins of an alien artifact....

The Expanse has been cancelled by Syfy – producers search for alternative

The Expanse has been cancelled by Syfy Syfy has gone back to its roots with doing something it has always done well – cancelling another Sci-Fi series. Now The Expanse has gotten the ax. For a channel that is supposed to be all about science fiction it sure as hell is cancelling a lot of shows. Dark Matter was already cancelled and Killjoys will have its final season next year. Other recent victims were Helix, Continuum and Defiance. In fact so few shows have concluded as they should that I am wondering how Syfy earns its money.  Reasons Reasons for...

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...

The Expanse Pilot Review – Syfy increases the stakes!

The Expanse Pilot Review Finally the first episode of The Expanse has streamed on Syfy. The show is a space opera adaptation of authors (plural) James S.A Corey novel series of the same name.

The Expanse features an ensemble cast that...

The MMO game continuous and last year became free-to-play using micro transactions for revenue. Defiance starred Jaime Murray, Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Tony Curran and Stephanie Leonidas.
