Sherlock Series 3 Release Date (Article) - 12/4/2013 5:04:45 AM

Yes, what about the BBC America channel here in the U.S.? In the past, the show would air on the BBC in the U.K., then on BBC America, and both long before PBS got a crack at it. I assumed the same would be true this time around. But is it?

DEXTER: Make Your Own Kind of Music Review (Article) - 8/28/2013 6:03:33 AM

DarkXid makes a good point. If I found out my brother was only killing serial killers and criminals who skip incarceration due to technical errors in processing ... I would consider him damn near a superhero! At least give him a high five.

DEXTER: A Little Reflection Review (Article) - 8/6/2013 7:27:27 AM

I think Zach was coached by Vogel on what to tell Dexter. Vogel knew Dexter would be on to him, after all, and that it was just a matter of time before the rich punk ended up on his table. So she told Zach how to say just the right think to get into Dex's mind and get him to take him on as a protoge.

Now, you might be wondering why, right? Well, because Vogel wants to see if it's possible to use The Code to reform a true remorseless pyschopath who is already grown and set in his ways into a killer in control of his urges, and using them only "for good." Unlike Dexter who was raised by a good father from a very young age and taught decency and how to channel himself. But if Vogel can prove that her co-founded "code" can also work on hardened serial killers who have murdered mostly innocent, defenseless victims, then she would've made a huge breakthrough in the field of criminial psychopathy.

Think about it.

New Writer for Prometheus Sequel (Article) - 6/20/2013 5:40:49 AM

I thought Prometheus was absolutely BRILLIANT! Far more than meets the eye at casual glance is going on in that movie. How it relates to global myths about the sacrificial god and human origins is some really heady stuff. And the way it hints at tying in with the Aliens franchise is very exciting. Can't wait for the sequel, although I suspect it will be a lot less cerebral and more popcorn-y.

Doctor Who: The Name of the Doctor Review (Article) - 5/24/2013 6:34:53 AM

I see John Hurt being a villain, not a new "Doctor," in the upcoming season. Kinda like a Prof. Moriarty. At least, that's the vibe I got from the end of this episode. I hated Matt Smith we he replaced Tenant. But I must admit he's grown on me quite a lot over the years, epsecially when the whole Ponds storyline was seriously getting old. His energy was the only thing that saved some of those later Pond episodes. Ugh! I would hate to see him leave now, as is being rumored.

GAME OF THRONES: Kissed by Fire Review (Article) - 4/30/2013 6:04:56 AM

It was already explained in the show where The Hound's fear of fire stems from. Littlefinger explained it to Sansa in season 1, during the tournee to honor the new Hand of the King, her father. It was then showcased in effect during the Battle of the Blackwater near the end of the second season, when the Hound flees from burning soliders and leads to his deserting his post and ultimately leaving King's Landing behind. So by this latest episode, viewers should already be well aware of Sandor Clegane's crippling phobia of fire. The fact that he powers through it and still defeats Beric is a huge point not to be overlooked.

Revolution: The Song Remains the Same Review (Article) - 4/10/2013 5:25:26 AM

It would be cool if these electricity absorbing nanobots would discharge the electricity they soak up in pretty spectacular lightning storms across the planet, making this future world very hazardous to those people still living. My theory is that the amulets don't nullify the nanobots, but switch them from absorbing electricty to "broadcasting" it. Although, the physics behind all this is nonsense, of course. But I get the feeling this is the way they're leaning on this show.

Spartacus: War of the Damned Episode 5 (Article) - 3/4/2013 5:59:38 AM

The most sickening thing this episode was what Marcus Crassus' son did to his father's mistress. Wasn't she almost like a mother to him? I understand why he would want to hurt his father, but that scene was quite Oedipal and out of nowhere. Very jarring.

Mania Review: Stoker (Article) - 3/1/2013 7:00:14 AM

Great! Now, can we get a grade for this review?

Continuum: The Politics of Time (Article) - 2/27/2013 5:25:16 AM

This episode reminded me of the PS3 game, Heavy Rain. The tech and investigative procedures Kiera uses reminds me of Agent Norman Jayden's "ARI" device, the music was suprisingly similar to that used during certain scenes in the game, and of course since this was filmed in Vancouver ... there were copious amounts of rain in practically every scene!

This was a very good episode. Even I didn't see the end coming (I thought the killer was the assistant), and the reveal about Kiera's husband was a shocking surprise. Sometimes this show goes places I would never expect from a SyFy show. Very interested in seeing how the remainder of the season plays out.
