    Arrow – Season 1 (Episode 1 & 2)

    I know you’re probably thinking its a little bit insane starting up another TV show when you’ve got so many currently on the go – Agents of Shield and Once Upon a Time are both in progress as you know, and we’ve just finished Agent Carter – but sitting on the couch watching The Flash […]

    Agent Carter: Valediction

    Well I guess it had to finally happen.  The little “filler” show in between seasons of Agents of Shield had to finally end and I’ll be honest I’m somewhat mixed up in my feelings.  While I’ll be really happy to have Agents of Shield back & more specifically of course, find out what the heck […]

  • Agent Carter
    A Sin to Err: Agent Carter

    Well it had to happen sometime I guess … I mean the good thing about the SSR & Agent Carter is that while they are always a couple of steps behind Peggy, they are still playing the same game unlike other shows where the only person that seems to be able to do anything at […]

    A WIZARD OF EARTHSEA

      I first read this book in my early teens and it had a profound impact on me.  The character of Sparrowhawk and his trials and tribulations were both inspiring and at that age somewhat terrifying!  Not a large book or series of books, it was easy to read and finish these books in a […]

  • Comics
    Biowars – Infection

    The appeal of comic books for me is the fantasy element that they evoke. Superhero’s with super powers, megalomaniac villains with visions of world domination and characters with disproportionately sized costumes are all just part of the charm. They evoke memories from my childhood … a simpler and easier time without the responsibilities that come […]

    THE WHEEL OF TIME – A NEW SPRING

    (Prequel) New Spring Although this book and its contents are actually a precusor to the rest of the series, introducing the characters of Lan & Moiraine at this point seems to take away from the other characters that will be introduced in later books. To be honest – although this book is good and interesting, […]

    The Fifth Element (1997)

    1997 was an amazing year for SciFi flicks with some of the most classic and iconic films and franchises either starting or continuing.  I mean we had Starship Troopers (based on the book by Robert Heinlein), Men in Black (with the awesome Will Smith), Event Horizon, Star Trek: First Contact & for the more cerebral Contact (based on book by Carl Sagan) and Gattaca.  Each of these films deserve a […]

    Dies the Fire – S.M. Stirling

    Ok, first – lets the get the biggest negative out of the way.  While Stirling is obviously a fan of the “Wiccan” way of life and the “Craft” and its back to nature creed, I am not as interested in this aspect of the story and think that his constant harping on about how and […]

    Is Interstellar the perfect date night movie for Valentines day?

    Now you might not think a dystopian future with humanity on the brink of extinction, space travel, wormholes, black holes, ice planets and astronauts are your typical date night movie but let’s actually look at all of the facts here!  If you and your date/partner/spouse are somewhat intelligent (and as you’re reading this website, I […]

    Jupiter Ascending – so bad it’s good?

    I’d like to think that I’m an unbiased reviewer – aside from my predilection towards Comics, SciFi and Fantasy of course – and as such can look at a movie with an un-jaundiced eye.  Someone that can enjoy it for the good and look (mostly) beyond the bad to get to the underlying story and […]

    Metamorphosis – S4E04 Supernatural

    If you recall from last episode (In the Beginning), Dean caught Sam literally exorcising a demon with the power of his mind.  After watching Sam harness his powers and realizing that the woman he is with is Ruby, Dean angrily confronts his brother and demands that he stop doing this as it is dangerous.  Sam had previously […]
