Netflix has answered many a fanboy’s prayers and done another season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Does it stand up to prior seasons or is it just filler? Let’s find out…

Here is your first look at the fully costumed “FLASH”

Star Trek Continues: Lolani – A Slice of SciFi Review

Lolani2

Star Trek Continues has launched its second episode after an impressive release of its first titled “Pilgrim of Eternity.” This second episode is called “Lolani.”

“The Monkey’s Paw” — A Slice of SciFi TV Review

The Monkey's Paw

The tale of a cursed item that grants wishes, but always with a malevolent twist, is one that is ripe for theatrical presentation. I was therefore intrigued that horror channel Chiller TV had picked up on this classic tale as the basis for a made-for-TV movie.

Star Trek Phase II “Kitumba” – A Slice of SciFi Review

Kitumba

The long awaited next episode in James Cawley’s Star Trek Phase II has debuted online and fans will not be disappointed. Titled “Kitumba,” the story centers around the beginnings and development of the Klingon Empire as we have come to know it by the time of the Jean Luc Picard era of Trek.

5 Episodes In: Almost Human

Almost Human

I honestly wasn’t sure what I’d think of this show, but after watching 5+ episodes, I have a verdict. Heck, I had a verdict after the pilot.

I like it. A lot.

5 Episodes In: The Legend of Korra

Legend of Korra

This show follows Korra, the teenaged Avatar, as she comes into her full powers and gets trained in how to actually use them, as well as how to be the Avatar. Of course, things don’t go smoothly and there are conspiracies to thwart, intrigues and mysteries to solve, lots of martial arts and element “bending”, action, and romance.

5 Episodes In: Sleepy Hollow

Sleepy Hollow

Sleepy Hollow is set in a world where Washington Irving’s story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”, never existed. Instead, in this show, all the people involved in that story are real people, and they were intimately involved in fighting both the Revolutionary War and the Legions of Hell.

5 Episodes In: Arrow

Arrow Season 2

Last year, I talked about this freshman series in my review column, and told you it was one to watch. A lot of people did — it was one of the first shows renewed at the time. Now, Arrow is back for its sophomore session, and the question is: is it still great?

The answer? Hells to the yeah.

5 Episodes In: The Originals

THE CW UPFRONTS 2013

I love a good vampire story, always have. So, I wasn’t real sure if having a spin-off of a successful show like The Vampire Diaries was a bad idea or one just ill-timed, but I had concerns that this new show called The Originals might not be the best idea. Happy to report my misgivings were ill-placed.

5 Episodes In: Agents of SHIELD

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D

If you expected witty, fast-paced writing, a cast with chemistry, great acting and direction, nifty plots, and an overarching, twisty plotline — in other words, if you expected Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly or a movie anything like The Avengers — there are a lot of other shows out there that can fulfill this need, including the original NCIS which has all of those things. AoS has none of them, however.

“Toy Story of Terror” — A Slice Of SciFi Review

Toy Story Of Terror - First Still

I just had the chance to watch the brand-new Toy Story of Terror with the girls. We were really looking forward to it and thought it was going to be your usual cheesy spooky, kids fare, unfortunately it was a lot scarier than anticipated.

Star Trek Continues – A Slice of SciFi Review

star-trek-continues-first-episode

The first episode of this new series of adventures has been completed, made its debut at this year’s Phoenix Comic Con and is now available for viewing online. It has everything the Star Trek original series fan could want.

“Doctor Who — The Rings of Akhaten” — A Slice of SciFi Review

ringsof2

While I appreciate all the complexities of a Steven Moffat written script, every once in a while it’s nice to see Doctor Who take the less is more approach.

As is the case with this week’s installment, “The Rings of Akhaten.”

“The Walking Dead” — Season Three Review

walkingdead3_feature

For the most popular, scripted series on television, you’d think The Walking Dead would be a lot better than it is. Or maybe I should say you’d think the series could be more consistent. A solid stretch of episodes to start season three were ultimately let down by the back half of the season.
