Bomb Girls S02E01 – The Quickening

  Bomb Girls is back, and seeing it after having spent time on the set just makes me smile all the more, and despite the fact that I know that they were sets, the series somehow seems increasingly real to me now, perhaps because I have walked through those places we see in this episode….

Toronto After Dark: Grave Encounters 2 – John Poliquin

  The first found-footage Grave Encounters film became somewhat of a YouTube sensation when it went viral in 2011, so naturally its success prompted a sequel to be made, but trying to re-create and top what made the first movie so much fun would prove to be the real challenge behind making the second one….

Fan Expo Edition!

  So Fan Expo is over for another year, sigh. Oh well. Sue and I had a great time, and had some wonderful chats, and there are chats we missed out on that we’re still trying to run down, as well as more still to come, but this week, we have an amalgam of interviews…

Fan Expo Day 4

Somehow, Day 4 of Fan Expo has come and gone – and it’s all over for another year. Wow. It’s been an amazing weekend, and each day just seemed to hold the bar or raise it in terms of awesomeness. This morning should have been a sign! Sue and I checked in at the Media…

Fan Expo Day 3

Saturdays can be tough at Fan Expo if you aren’t ready and prepared. Sue and I find that the real key to Saturdays is try to stay out of everyone’s way – stay off the floor as much as you can and enjoy the Q&As and photo ops. Pick one thing you need and want to…

Fan Expo 2012

Here it is August 2012! And it’s almost Fan Expo time, my favorite time of year! The Mind Reels, just shy of it’s 1 year birthday, coming up in October (can you believe it?!) has been invited to attend this year’s Fan Expo and cover it as Media. Sue and I are delighted. I’ve gone…

Continuum S01 E10 – End Times

  Somehow we’ve come to the end of the first season of Showcase’s enjoyable sci-fi series Continuum, and it ends explosively! It also ties up a number of story threads for the season while setting up ideas for season 2. We see things happening in our 2077 opener, that tie directly back to the first…

Victor Webster

This week Sue and I were lucky enough to have a quick phone chat with Continuum star Victor Webster, who plays cop Carlos Fonnegra to Rachel Nichols’ Kiera Cameron. We have a brief talk about his fave films, his other work, including appearances on Sex & The City and Charmed, working with some of Tim’s biggest crushes, and…

Continuum S01 E09 – Family Time

This week the story hits home for young Alec (Eric Knudsen) as a hostage situation erupts on his farm with his family, Kiera (Rachel Nichols) and Carlos (Victor Webster) smack dab in the middle of it. And before I go any further, let me just get this out of the way… Kiera looks so hot…

Continuum S01 E08 – Game Time

Now this is what I’m talking about! Continuum finds it’s feet again in what, for me, is the best episode since Episode 05 A Test of Time. We open in the 2070s, where CPS Protector Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) is apparently pulling some kind of guard duty at Sautech for a demonstration. A demonstration that…

Continuum S01 E07 – The Politics of Time

At it’s heart, this week’s episode is about loyalty, trust and the heart. It’s also a rather familiar police investigation kind of story, once the plot gets going. But it’s the characters that make the story its own. It happily also helped me put some distance between the fight sequence of last week (I’ve harped…
