The Originals Isn’t Exactly Original

“The Originals” is just another “Vampire Diaries” set in modern day America with lots of flash backs. It’s interesting because we already know many of the characters, but do we really need another “Vampire Diaries?”

Once Upon a Time in Wonder(ful)land

I’ve really enjoyed the series “Once Upon a Time” which has managed to intertwine several classic fairy tales into one big story and bring them into the modern day. Now the spin off series, “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” has hit screens and is very different to its sister show. There is a brief connection with Knave of Hearts in Storybrook with the White Rabbit before he heads back to Wonderland but that is the only connection we get to see in the first episode.

Atlantis is the new Merlin

The origin TV show Merlin was the BBC’s big sci-fi fantasy show that had families across the nation tuning in on Saturday nights. But the show finished recently so the BBC needed to find something new to fill the void. And may I present Atlantis. Atlantis follows Jason, a guy who, upon his search for his […]

The Making of the Return of the Jedi

The latest making of book from the original Star Wars films has finally arrived. This book is one that you will keep on your coffee table with pride (I know I have). I was lucky enough to be sent a copy ahead of the release (available now at Amazon.co.uk) which, quite frankly made my September! […]

The Dark Knight Returns?

The Batman casting rumours are going crazy this week. The usual names are being thrown into the mix, Ryan Gosling (apparently The Sun reader’s favourite), Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bradley Cooper, even Gerard Butler. There has also been Josh Brolin and Jeffery Dean Morgan – both of which I think could be pretty good, Richard Armitage, Matthew […]

Doctor! Doctor Who? Why it’s Peter Capaldi

At last, the new Doctor Who has been revealed. On Sunday night the BBC announced the new casting live across the world in a 30 minute show, full on interviews and chatter. Matt Smith ruled out a female doctor in the early part of the programme when he revealed a conversation he had with the […]

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is going to rock

I cannot wait for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to start (24 September in the US), it has interest from UK broadcasters, but none confirmed as yet, but hopefully we won’t have to wait too long this side of the pond. The main reason I am excited about this TV series is it brings back from the […]

The Best of Comic-Con 2013

Ok, before I start, this is my personal preference, so you may or may not agree with these, but here are my personal favourite highlights of Comic-Con 2013. I’ve been enjoying Comic-Con from the comfort of my sofa in front of my laptop, but have to say some of the tweets/announcements this year have been […]

Summer Glau Joins Arrow Season 2

No surprises here. Another sci-fi TV show, another role for Summer. She has well and truly been in pretty much anything. She will play the reoccurring role of Isabel Rochev, the vice president of acquisitions for Stellmoor International, who is looking to take over the Queen business. She has been in a LOT of sci-fi […]

Are You Excited About Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary?

November 23rd, is the date that every sci-fi fan is eagerly waiting to see what the BBC has in store for us with its celebratory episode of 50 years of the world’s most famous Doctor. In my quest for new news on the episode I stumbled across several so called ‘trailers’, some of which are so impressive […]

I’m in Love With a Zombie

I finally got round to seeing Warm Bodies this weekend and I was pleasantly surprised. Nicholas Hoult is a good actor…at times, sometimes I think his acting skills aren’t the best (the kissing scene in Warm Bodies is a prime example) but other times he surprises me with brilliant acting (Skins is an example of this). Despite […]

True Blood is Back With a Bite

True Blood has finally returned to TV and boy has it come back with a bang. It’s already two episodes in and so much has happened already. Bill is not himself, whatever his is (not God apparently) he can see the future, and the future for the vampires looks bright, not in a good way, […]
