    Batman Fans Deserve Better Than Fox’s Gotham

    2014 was an exceptional year for genre nerds. In a span of twelve months, we received cinematic treasures such as Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. I slated Fox’s Gotham series in as the third and shiniest jewel in my comic book nerd triple crown. Much to my chagrin, I immediately […]

    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 […]

    Superman For A Modern Time.

    Superman. The man of steel or the big blue boy scout? As legendary as this character is he also happens to be one of the most divisive in today’s modern age. The common complaint I often hear is that people can’t relate enough to him. Fair enough I guess. Warner Bros sort of listened it […]

    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 […]

    “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 […]

    “Forget” – The Walking Dead Hosts a Dinner Party

    “Come and get me.” – Sasha At some point during “Forget”, I became enthralled with the idea that the concept of the episode would make for a great series finale, and the more I watched, the more it hit all the right marks. What might we want, some day in the long future, from a […]

    S1 Episode 6 Skin

    Who’s ready to go out on another hunt? Well, put on your crucifix necklaces. Get your bottle of holy water, and buckle up when you get into your Impala. Today the Winchester brothers are going on the hunt for a shape shifter! Similar to the past episode this one has a few creepy elements going […]

    “The Distance” – The Walking Dead Offers a Glimpse of Hope

    “Even though you were wrong, you’re still right.” – Carol Peletier An unusually-structured episode of The Walking Dead proves that the show can still provide thrills while offering glimpses of hope. After a string of episodes featuring other characters, our centerpiece in “The Distance” is Rick Grimes, hero and leader, as he tries to make […]

    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 […]

    Project Almanac: What Happens when Teenagers Time-Travel

    The premise has been done to death – time travel is first exciting and full of hope and promises, only to go awry in the hands of fatal human error. Reminiscent of Marty McFly‘s adventures in Back to the Future, screenwriters Andrew Stark and Jason Pagan use teenagers as the vehicle for time-travel wish fulfillment, in the […]

    Chapter II – Deimos Rising “…Now running signature Omega-38 against sequence 430-Alpha” said Dr. Kronos in the darkened research lab, a massive construct sat before him. Kronos watched energy patterns and equations scroll along the holo-monitor. “Those patterns seem to correlate from here” came a voice from a small transmitter, sitting on the desk. “I’m […]
