War of the Worlds (1990) – Time to Reap, and The Pied Piper

There’s some cool stuff going on in Season 2 of War of the Worlds, and this episode may in fact be one of the best. Written by Jim Trombetta, this story, featuring some time travel, a science fiction standby, first debuted on 29 January, 1990. Nowadays, and even just a little after this episode aired,…

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) -George Miller & George Ogilvie

Five years after Mad Max first burst onto the scene, and almost four years after the release of its follow-up, the superior, and iconic, Road Warrior, Max (Mel Gibson) returned for the third film in the original trilogy of Mad Max films, and my most recent stop in the Sci-Fi Chronicles book. With two wicked…
