What if Every Superman Actor Was One Man?

This week there was only one thing I could write about. Man of Steel. I saw the film and it was amazing. I personally think it is the best outing of Superman ever. Zack Snyder and Christopher Nolan have produced what is a brilliant new Superman franchise. If you loved the Dark Knight trilogy and are […]

A Game of Drama

Well season three of Game of Thrones is over, and I have to say after the Red Wedding episode I had prepared myself for a dramatic season finale, which thankfully didn’t come. Don’t get me wrong, it was a decent episode, but as my friend put it “nothing is shocking me anymore after THAT episode”. […]

Who Will Be The Next Doctor?

So the news this weekend that Matt Smith will leave Doctor Who at the end of 2013 means that the rumour mill will soon start for the casting of the next Doctor. David Tennant was a brillant Doctor and a touch act to follow and Matt Smith certainly did a good job in filling his […]

The Battle For The Throne

So I have finally caught up with Game of Thrones. Something I have finally bumped up from my to watch list to watch list. Through the first season I found myself using it as my background show whilst I was up to something else. But as I’ve made my way to the third season I […]

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Gets A Trailer

The fact that Marvel is taking its Avengers franchise to the small screen excites me, as rather than a film or two every year or so (or more with all of the new films in the pipeline) I will be able to see the action every week. And more than that, my favourite character Agent […]

Good News for Sci-Fi TV fans

If you are excited about the season finales that take place on many sci-fi TV shows over the next week or so, but are also sad that it might be the last time you ever see them on your screen, then fear not as with only a week to go, many of the networks have […]

Waiting Sucks

It always seems like forever in between True Blood seasons, and every year I forget what happened in the previous season finale. I’ve read all of the Sookie Stackhouse novels so I get completely mixed up between what I’ve read and what I have seen as well, especially as the TV show is really taking on a life […]

Could Defiance Be The Next Firefly?

I decided to watch Defiance after a recommendation from fellow Amazing Stories blogger, Geoff Wakeling. I’d seen the posters on the side of buses for the show, but the fact that it was followed by “a SyFy original” put be off slightly. I was expecting a low budget sci-fi show. I have to say, from watching […]

Iron Man 3 Has Arrived At Last!

The 2013 comic book season has finally arrived and lucky for me the UK is one of the first countries getting a first taste of the Marvel movies again. Today saw Tony Stark return to saving the world solo, following his epic battle against Loki with Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Nick Fury […]

Here Comes the Lull

It’s seriously getting close to the end of the 2012/2013 season. Next week May will be here and with it comes a bunch of season finales and the odd cancelation. It’s the time when I wonder what I am going to watch. Sure True Blood will be along on June, but that will only feed […]

Are Vampires So 2012?

Vampires have been the top of popular sci-fi culture with the masses for quite a few years now, but are people starting to get bored of them? Moonlight was the first on the scene with the vampire PI, which was quickly cancelled, sadly being several months ahead of the vampire trend. Then True Blood and […]

What super-movie are you most excited about?

The sun actually decided to finally show its face in London this week, and that along with me spotting that the 2012/13 season of TV shows is soon coming to an end has made me realise that the summer season is nearly upon us and that can mean only one thing. Blockbuster movie season. Over […]

Doctor Who Returns for 50th Anniversary Year

At last Doctor Who has returned to our screens in the lead up to the 50th anniversary episode. Still part of season seven we are officially introduced to the Doctor’s new sidekick, Clara Oswin (even though we’ve seen her a few times already). This episode, The Bells of Saint John, is set in the present […]

Eli Roth Goes Digital

If you are a fan of Eli Roth (director of Cabin Fever and Hostel) then you will be excited that his next venture is a TV series called Hemlock Grove. This is his first step from the big screen to small screen. When I say TV series, I should actually say web series, as the […]

My Journey With Sci-Fi

There are many reasons that I love science fiction on the screen above and beyond any other format. I’ve always been someone who enjoys being told a story where I can see it in front of me. Yes I love the theatre too, but I also love the special effects with films and TV shows […]

The British Are Coming…Again

I’ve always thought that US TV shows have the ground covered when it comes to science fiction TV shows (although the UK has the longest running show Doctor Who to brag about). But occasionally the UK produces some great new content. Being Human is one show, which was picked up and spun into a US […]

Are Modern Twists on Classics the Future?

As with every hit TV show there becomes a trend of similar shows appearing on our screens. And fairy tales set in the modern world seem the latest trend. Last year we welcomed Grimm and Once Upon a Time. I only got round to watching the first episode of Grimm, but as often with a […]

JJ Abrams is coming back to the small screen

The man behind hit TV shows and films such as Lost, Cloverfield and Armageddon (yes he was involved in the script writing for the latter) is bringing a new show to our screens – Revolution. I first saw the trailer this week, which shows the world’s electricity and electrical devices shutting down and includes a […]

Will Wonder Woman Finally Make Her TV Comeback?

Wonder Woman is one of the shows I can’t wait to see on TV. The original TV show was pre-me (I’m a child of the 80s) but I do recall it being on TV. I was excited when a concept was developed in 2011 and managed to see the unaired pilot. I was, I’m sure […]

Some shows get cancelled before their time

I always hate getting in to  a show and then it suddenly gets cancelled before it gets to even begin its story (Firefly is a key example). You might say that I should just not watch them until they have run a full season, but I just love experiencing them when they are first shared […]

The Battle of the Paranormal Romance

Now, I’m never one to say a film or TV adaptation of a book is ever as good as the read itself. I’m not much of a reader as I’m more of a visual person, but when I do read it’s usually something that I know I use as an excuse to be more critical […]

More Sci-fi Shows to Hit Screens in 2013

It is the time of year when the studios start looking at new pilots to hit screens this year. Some we will never see, some will never last more than a few episodes and others will be come modern day classics. As science fiction based TV shows continue to become big hits, we can be guaranteed to […]

A Big Money Cast Doesn’t Always Make For A Hit

You’d think that fronting a new TV show with a well known cast would equal a hit. Especially in the sci-fi sector. There are a few actors who are rolled out for several shows, the most obvious is Summer Glau. However, if the show behind them isn’t great then people will still switch off. 666 […]

Knock, knock…Who’s There? Doctor. Doctor Who?

Oh yes, 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the one and only Doctor. Doctor Who is the longest running science fiction TV show in the world, and being that successful, clearly there is a lot for the BBC to look back on and celebrate to bring us a really special birthday episode later this year. […]

Some Superheroes Are Just Made For TV

It must be an incredibly hard decision for a studio to decide what superheros are worthy of a big screen adaptation, which should be aired on the small screen…and those that should never make it beyond the comic book page. Some have successfully made it on TV and in cinemas, Batman and Superman are the obviously […]
