Star Trek: Picard Preview – already the best show of 2020?

After years of suffering a figurative drought in Star Trek shows we are suddenly inundated with new shows. However, not all is well. So far Discovery has had a mediocre response with many fans feeling alienated by the fast-pace and high drama. On January 23 next year CBS has an opportunity to make things right […]

Helix Season 2 Teaser Trailer

Syfy has just released a teaser trailer for the upcoming second season of Helix, the high-concept show produced by BSG guru Ronald D. Moore. The first season proofed it had a lot of promise, but it could at times be burdened by the cumbersome backstory that had to be told of how Dr. Alan Farragut (played […]

Helix season 1 finale Dans L’ombre Review

For the most part I have fond memories of Helix. Both the mystery of the NARVIK pathogen and the suspense it created reminded me a lot of Lost. Certainly the first 4 episodes used both the suspense and character drama deftly to let us get to know Dr. Alan Farragut, his estranged ex-wife Julia, Dr. Sarah […]

Helix S1Ep8 ‘Bloodline’ Review!

After Jeri Ryan’s spectacular entrance as Constance Sutton, a cold-blooded corporate genocidal murderess, Helix was in need of a brief break from last weeks fast paced events. Bloodline offers this break by first concentrating on giving every character some time to deal with the latest revelations. After this has been accomplished the second part of […]

Helix S1Ep7 ‘Survivor Zero’ Review

Jeri Ryan’s spectacular entrance as Constance Sutton, a Ilaria Corporation bigshot, was a welcome addition to what has been a restrictive character roll over the first 6 episodes. Her character changes the dynamics of pretty much every relationship. Suddenly Hatake does not seem to be all that bad, though his personal motivation stay unknown. Major […]

Helix episode 4 ‘Single Strand’ Preview!

Next Friday the fourth episode of Helix will air. Unfortunately this episode wasn’t available on the website of Syfy Channel early like episode 3, so it will be almost two weeks since episode 3 and I am already feeling the Helix withdrawal symptoms. Episode 4 is entitled ‘Single Strand’ and seem bent on progressing the […]

Helix S1Ep1&2 ‘Pilot’ & ‘Vector’ Review

Helix is a show that does little new. Instead it uses known horror and science fiction devices together with a compelling character driven story to drive viewers to the edge of their seat. In many ways the show reminds me of Ridley Scott’s movie Alien, still considered the best B-movie ever made in that it […]

Warehouse 13 ‘Queen for a Day’ Review!

Warehouse 13 certainly took off well in its third season. Better special effects, more budget towards the set and the cast appearance was considerably altered. Almost as if for 5 years production had ceased and only just restarted. What was also different was the level of drama, which was considerably increased. This probably because the series […]
