Killjoys Returns As Fun As Ever For Season 3

I’ve written before about how Killjoys has become one of my favourite TV pleasures and it’s already good to have it back. “Boondoggie” has a lot of work to do in setting up the new arcs for the season, after having so much shift and change during last year’s finale. The Hullen threat is more daunting than ever, Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) is off to war while Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) is still separated from the rest of the group.…

Leviathan Wakes Concludes as Caliban’s War Begins On The Expanse

An interesting surprise of The Expanse was the choice to spread original book Leviathan Wakes over two seasons instead of one. The usual expectation in a book to television adaptation would be one season per book, similar to the first few seasons of Game of Thrones, but it wasn’t until last week’s “Home” and yesterday’s “Paradigm Shift” that we saw the effective conclusion of Leviathan Wakes and the beginning of Caliban’s War.…

The Expanse‘s Second Season Comes Back As Strong As Ever

Last year’s adaptation of The Expanse book series from James. S. A. Corey was easily one of the strongest science fiction shows of 2016. Returning as a two-part opener, the Season 2 premiere feels like a solid movie as much as an episode of a series and it’s still one of the best shows that not enough people are watching.…

If You Miss Firefly, try Killjoys.

We’ve had some really incredible science fiction in the last few years, with shows like The Expanse, Black Mirror, Orphan Black and plenty of others that use the genre to dive as deep as possible into humanity, society and technology. But science fiction is good for something else too: it can be fun as shit.…

Person of Interest Delivered A Perfect Finale

First things first, I’ve been unbelievably late on finishing Person of Interest‘s final season. Messy story short, I relocated to Canada and spent over a month in a hostel with pretty much no regular access to television (if only they showed Person of Interest in a cinema) and I decided not to watch it out of order and in pieces.…

Gandahar aka Light Years (1988) – Film-a-Day 166

Gandahar is one of the most unique science-fiction animations you will find. Whilst it isn’t exactly ‘beautiful’, everything is just so weird and alien that it is an utterly absorbing experience. Set on an obviously fictional planet called ‘Gandahar’ – a peaceful place run by strange blue woman who often go around topless – Gandahar is an exploration of past, present and future as well as the idea of technology vs nature.…

Why Sarah Shahi’s Exceptional Return to Person of Interest Is So Well-Earned

After taking a necessary leave of absence due to a real-life pregnancy, Sarah Shahi finally returned to Person of Interest as Sameen Shaw in one of the show’s finest episodes to date. “6,741” was almost a spiritual successor or perhaps a perverted opposite to last year’s superb “If-Then-Else”. It was clever, it was exciting and it was emotional, especially when we finally got a reunion of the show’s most naturally developed couple.…

Visual Storytelling: Introducing Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

One of the most important moments to any character is their first one. A stellar introduction can immediately cement a character as someone we should be interested in and convince us to be invested in their story, which is especially important in the case of the main character. Of all the things I enjoyed about The Force Awakens (2015), the introduction of Rey (Daisy Ridley) is one of my favourites.…

Orphan Black Returns To Where It All Began

After too long away, Orphan Black returned to our screens last night and treated us to an extended look into one of the show’s most unexplored and yet most important characters. ‘The Collapse of Nature’ gave us a whole episode dedicated to Beth Childs, the clone who started it all and another fantastic showcasing of star Tatiana Maslany’s immense talent.…

The Twelth Doctor: Series 9 Retrospective

(SPOILERS…) Now that Peter Capaldi’s second series has officially come to an end and the better part of a year at least until we get to see those terrifying eyebrows again, I decided it was the perfect time to consider his performance and growth as the Doctor in the last two years.…
