Before we get too excited…just kidding, too late…
We got two tiny teasers for Orphan Black’s season 2 during the Doctor Who 50th special on Saturday. The show starring Tatiana Maslany x(5+?) is set to make its much anticipated return April 19th 2014. Shall we start the countdown now or….
…check out the trailers and let us know, how will you pass the time until April 19th? Continue reading
If you’ve come looking for a review full of effusive praise for the episode, I’m sorry, you’ve come to the wrong place. I’m not here to tear it down either. There were a lot of things in Day of the Doctor that worked for me, some that didn’t, and some ideas that may take a second viewing to sink in. I’m going to attempt to breakdown my personal experience of the episode, which to me makes the most sense since Doctor Who, perhaps more than any other show, becomes such a personal thing to people. I hope you also share with my your experience in the comments. Continue reading

After William shook Haven to it’s core in last week’s eponymous episode that we decided might be the most uncomfortable episode of Haven ever, this week’s alternate reality was a welcome tonal shift from the intense, and very unHaven like uncanny vibe and overall intense weight that loomed over last week’s mythology heavy outing.
Not to say that “The Trouble with Troubles” was any kind of fluff, it too was rich with mythology and… pancakes It was a return to a comfort zone tone of the show that we’re used to, even as we continue to explore the crumbling of the rules we’re been operating within up until this season.

Did I fall asleep?
For a little while.
Don’t tell me you can hear those words without hearing the words that defined the Dollhouse universe echo through your brain. Especially when the same writers are involved.
At this point we’re pretty sure Coulson’s not a robot, but maybe he’s a doll. Okay, I’m 99% sure they’re not going to bring the entire Dollhouse mythology into the Marvel Universe, but what if they bring in some of the technology and ideas that were sparked there? Wouldn’t that be neat?
At the very least – if we get Topher, or Fran Kranz in any capacity I’d be down.
What do you think about this blatant Dollhouse reference in regards to the Tahiti situation?
We’ve been holding our Helix excitement on the back-burner since the show was announced a while back. Now that Showcase has officially announced a premiere date (Jan 10th y’all) and the show’s production is underway properly start to look forward to the next sci-fi offering from one of our favourites, Ronald D. Moore (also executive produced by Lynda Obst (Sleepless in Seattle, Contact), and Steven Maeda(Lost, The X-Files).
The show, currently filming in Montreal (gotta love that Canadian spirit in our sci-fi) stars Battlestar and Caprica alum, Luciana Carro alongside Billy Campbell (The Killing) among others.
Check out the latest teaser and let us know, will you be watching with us when Helix premieres in 2014?
We all watched this episode knowing that William’s return would surely shed some light on the show’s deeper mythology and damn – we got a serious dose of that.
What we didn’t expect was how far out of our Haven comfort zone “William” would take us. It took us a while to all process the episode, but the one thing we all shared with each other shortly after viewing was how strange it was, and how weird we felt while watching it. This wasn’t really a negative – it was more like – this was an episode of Haven that didn’t feel like the same experience as watching other episodes of Haven. Continue reading

I asked and Castle delivered.
When Alexis and Castle hit the road in their Daddy/Daughter crime solving road trip it was as if all my concerns about the show forgetting the value of this dynamic, and the well established character traits, were being addressed. This doesn’t change how I feel about the earlier episodes, but I’m very glad to see the show heading back in a direction I can get behind. Continue reading
We’re all loving how quickly things are moving along this season, people are actually communicating situations and secrets and articulating their feelings with alarmingly refreshing frequency.
“Crush”, which I’m comfortable assuming is titled both for the trouble of the week and the crushing guilt Duke, Nathan, and Audrey are all feeling, spent a good deal of the hour getting directly to the heart of the issues affecting each of our main characters.
This feels like an end game episode (regardless of whether or not Nathan was actually shot). So much of the hour dealt with guilt and grief, of the brothers, of Duke, Nathan, and the town attempting to cope with the loss of whatever normalcy Haven once had. Things are changing in a very serious way and really have been since Haven started crumbling at the end of last season. All of that being said, I am endlessly satisfied with the amount of humour that is jam-packed into even the increasingly heavy episodes. Continue reading
The balancing act of having characters that grow and evolve, while maintaining the magic chemistry seems to be the trouble for many shows. While certain aspects of season 6, such as Beckett, a talented detective more forward in her career, seem necessary, even temporarily. There’s the case of Alexis’s boyfriend Pi – a strange insertion that throws off the balance more significantly than I realized at first glance. Continue reading
