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. [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
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.” [Read more…]
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. [Read more…]
BBC America’s new original series Orphan Black kicked off Saturday evening, paired with Doctor Who as part of the channels Supernatural Saturdays. As a viewer, I admit I was intrigued to go from the more family-oriented sensibility of Doctor Who to the more adult sensibility (including a little language and equal-opportunity nudity) of Orphan Black.
