Almost Human S01E06 – Arrhythmia

  Illegal organ tranplants. and another DRN are the focus of this week’s episode of Almost Human. We also see some more cool future tech, holographic consulting doctors, a very cool translating device, and Dorian (Micheal Ealy) can remove his eyes, and remotely drive their patrol car… The episode kicks off with a man trying to get…

Almost Human S01E05 – Blood Brothers

  This week we take on the ideas of murder, cloning and a medium psychic (though on a good day, she’s a petite psychic)… Captain Maldonado (Lili Taylor) is in court monitoring the trial of a murderer named Avery (Graham Miller), and awaiting the testimony of two sequestered and protected witnesses. When one of the…

Almost Human S01E04 – The Bends

  This week’s ep of Almost Human sees Rudy (Mackenzie Crook) posing as a cook for a new and dangerous drug known as the bends, as it is crafted from a deep ocean algae. Kennex (Karl Urban) first notices the case, when he is informed that a fellow cop that he came up with has…

Almost Human – Tim Plays Catch-Up

  I remember being very excited that Karl Urban was going to be starring in a new sci-fi show, and I was rather happy that J.J. Abrams (I tend to like Abrams work. I know its not for everyone, but I enjoy it for what it is, entertaining) was serving as executive producer alongside J.H. Wyman, the…

Fan Expo Day 3

Saturday is undeniably the busiest day of the week at Expo, all those people who couldn’t get Thursday and Friday off work, and all those folks coming in on day passes flood in. The place was full, but for Sue and I, and the fact that the convention is spread over two buildings, it didn’t…

Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013) – J.J. Abrams

This is a summer blockbuster first and foremost. Since Trek made the leap to the bug screen, they’ve had to eschew some of the material that inherently made Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek what is was when it was a weekly television show. After The Motion Picture, which I still love, the series began to shift…

Star Trek Into Darkness – Trailers and Thoughts

I am a Star Trek fan, from that first Saturday morning when I discovered the show in the late 70s, but before The Motion Picture came along. I can find things I like about every single one of the television series, as well as the movies. I love the world and the future Gene Roddenberry…

Dredd 3D

  I don’t know tons and tons about Judge Dredd, though right after I walked out of the new movie (which happily allows you to forget the abysmal Stallone version) I made sure to order some of his Case Files online. I do know that I like the character. I know I like Karl Urban…

IDW Star Trek (Ongoing) – Issues 3 & 4 – The Galileo Seven

It’s hard to reinvent the wheel. It’s hard finding new ways to tell stories that people know already. And yet, IDW, with their new Trek series, set in the alternate universe created in the 2009 movie, seems to be doing a fine job with it. This time around, in issues 3 and 4, they revisit…
