Taking A Leap Into (an advance first episode review of) Syfy’s THE EXPANSE!

Stewart here…

It seems like Syfy is going all in with spaceship based drama this year, with Dark Matter and Killjoys earlier this year, but those were appetizers for December’s The Expanse. Based on the book series by James S.A. Corey (a pseudonym for the two writers of the books, Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck), this show was one I was really looking for to, as I recently started reading the books for myself. But considering Syfy has been keeping its stable of shows relatively Earthbound, how would this sparring saga fare when translated to television? If the first episode (now available on cable on demand and YouTube ahead of its mid-December premiere) is any indication, Sci-Fi TV fans are in for a great meal.

Supergirl: do you believe a girl can fly?

21 Nov

This is not a review. There haven’t been enough episodes to truly review this series yet. This is, instead, me working out whether or not Supergirl is worth my time.

ARROW Season 4×07 recap, “Brotherhood”

19 Nov

20151005-020437.jpg

Welcome back, Arrowheads! It’s a big “Everyone’s Coming Back From The Dead Party” this season. Sara came back a while ago, and guess who came back from the dead (well, he was declared legally dead, so that counts)? Ray Palmer, who spent months playing Ant-Man. I suppose at this rate Moira Queen will rise from her grave before Tommy Merlyn does. However, we got some other things to deal with: like fighting HIVE and Diggle finding out the truth that his brother may have had a really shady past before he got killed. If there was only some way to solve Dig’s unresolved issues while tying into the Everyone’s Coming Back From The Dead Party. Hmmm… Continue reading

The Stargate SG-1 Season Seven Minicaps welcomes back the new Daniel Jackson, same as the old Daniel Jackson.

Stewart here…

So last season, Daniel Jackson got to spend some time Ascended to a higher lifeform while SG-1 had to fill the void with alien Jonas Quinn. But leave it to Anubis quest for more power to get Daniel put in the Ascended being penalty box and SG-1 put on a mission to find a “Lost City of the Ancients”. So how will this quest end up? Is Daniel going to be kept on his Ascended “time out”? Read on… Continue reading

Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo, year 5

15 Nov

One of the great things about attending all 5 years of Stan Lee’s Comikaze is that we’ve been able to observe the convention grow and change every year. This year the event grew to having two halls of LA’s Convention Center. We noted last year that it wasn’t quite big enough for us to travel for the event to attend for multiple days- we discussed on our travels home that this year, we felt it was almost a requirement ro come multiple days.

ARROW Season 4×06 recap, “Lost Souls”

11 Nov

20151005-020437.jpg

Welcome back, Arrowheads! To prove no one stays dead forever (unless you’re not a superhero like Moira Queen), Sara’s back and spent a bit missing her soul. Well that was easily remedied, although the same may not be said for Ray Palmer. Oh yeah, he survived that explosion at the end of season three, and needs Felicity’s help! So let’s jump in…

ARROW Season 4×05 recap, “Haunted”

5 Nov

20151005-020437.jpg

Welcome back, Arrowheads! Quentin Lance really needs to take a break. Look at what he had to contend with last episode: finding out his daughter Sara’s alive (if slightly crazy), having Ollie discover his alliance with Damien Darhk, and to help redeem him, Ollie makes him a double agent to report on Darhk. It’s a good thing he hasn’t heard Sara has escaped from her basement prison in Laurel’s apartment building. Also, what’s with Ray Palmer’s hidden message to Felicity? Continue reading

Groovy! A Review of the first episode of Ash Vs. Evil Dead!

Stewart here…

One of my formative experiences in life may have been my exposure to the Evil Dead movies. Oddly enough, it came through the third movie, Army of Darkness, which lead me back to the original and eventually Evil Dead 2 (the best of all three). I even enjoyed the recent remake (maybe connected to the original based on that little teaser in the end credits), so when hearing of a new cable series on Starz that would follow the events of the original trilogy, Ash vs. Evil Dead, I had reservations. Oh, not that I thoroughly doubted this whole endeavor, especially knowing Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi were on board, but a series? Really? Continue reading
