    ON BASILISK STATION

      I mentioned in a previous post the Honor Harrington series of books by David Weber, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually spoken about them in any depth, so I thought I’d do so now. The first book in the Honorverse is called On Basilisk Station and it is available for free from the […]

    iZombie – Pilot

    I didn’t know what I was expecting when I came across this show … I hadn’t ever read the comic book, although I’d seen it on the shelves, so while I knew the main character was a female, that’s about all I knew about it … well that and the fact that it was on […]

    One of Us – Agents of Shield

    Confusion, concern and questions So is Skye’s dad (Cal – Kyle MacLachlan) the big bad of the latter half of the season or not?  We’re only two episodes in, but it seems that he’s been sent to the great big dumpster in the sky just like HYDRA was in the last episode. I guess if the […]

    THE WHEEL OF TIME – THE GATHERING STORM

      While I would be amongst the first to state that Jordan’s writing style is not the best (please note – when I state Jordan’s style is not the best, this primarily refers to his long windedness (I know, that’s not even a word!) and the way that he sometimes tends to repeat the story […]

    AGENTS OF SHIELD: THE WRITING ON THE WALL (S2E07)

    Opening: Well, last episode is a lot to follow, especially since the end tag promised that we’d get to know a lot more about the alien map.  But at this point I think I can trust the show to balance things off well with the likely manhunt for Ward.  Am I right?  Let’s take a […]

    THE FOUNDATION SERIES by Isaac Asimov

    Probably one of the first “epic” series of science fiction books that I had the pleasure of reading.  The Foundation Series written by Isaac Asimov – a grandmaster of Science Fiction and along with Arthur C. Clarke & L.Ron Hubbard, one of the grandaddies of the genre – is a series of novels spanning a 500 year […]

    A PLANET CALLED TREASON

    From the creator of the Enderverse series, A Planet Called Treason is an exciting read that really captures your imagination: The story of Treason is as follows – once upon a time, in the far distant future, there was a revolution.  The old government was overthrown and the new Republic transported its former masters to […]

  • Agent Carter
    “The Blitzkrieg Button” – Agent Carter

    Well that was unexpected! This episode Agent Carter definitely has some very strange twists and turns to it, and some of them come completely out of left field (although I think I guessed some of it right) … but I guess before I get to that I should kind of explain how we got there in […]

    In the Beginning – Supernatural (S04E03)

    One good thing about Supernatural is that they like to leaven their horror with a light sprinkling of comedy (I know sounds a bit weird, but they manage to pull it off quite admirably) and this episode is a perfect case in point.  Basically – we’re going Back to the Future … allow me to […]

    TRANSMORPHERS: FALL OF MAN

    SciFi Buff that I am I thought I had to give this a try … I really, really did try … but this is bad.  No other way to say it really.  The only “actor” that has any skills is good ole B5’s Bruce Boxleiter and lets be honest, he was never that great shakes was […]

    The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies

    I’m probably going to to go a slightly different path on this review versus my previous film reviews about the Hobbit and not give you a standard walk-through.  I mean lets be honest, most people have read the book now anyways and know the story based on where the previous movie ended and what happened […]

    LUCIFER’S HAMMER

    The End is Nigh! While there are a plethora of books and movies forecasting the end of the world in a variety of different fashions – anyone seen Independence Day perchance? – the Science in “science fiction” if often lacking and while it would be great to insert a virus into an alien computer core, […]
