The Expanse #5: Nemesis Game (2015) – James S.A. Corey

  It’s been a look time since last year’s adventure with the crew of the Roci. This waiting until June just seems to take too long. But its books like these that makes it worth it. I dove right back into the world that the authors created. I have missed these characters, and we get…

The Mind Reels Chats With Defiance!!

  Showcase was very kind over the Fan Expo weekend to let us sit in on the fantastic press event for their hit show, which they share with Syfy, Defiance. In the first of 3 interviews, this one features us chatting with the legendary Graham Greene, the lovely Jaime Murray, and the brilliant Nicole Munoz……

Defiance S01E04 – A Well Respected Man

  I am loving this show, and I now know why Showcase didn’t send me the entire series in one go… because I would have watched them all in one sitting, and then a couple of days later, done it again and again. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite shows, I love the…

Defiance S01E02 – Down In The Ground Where The Dead Men Go

  Things getting increasingly shtako (hope I’m using that right) for the folks of the town of Defiance tonight. SPOILERS!!!! Nolan (Grant Bowler) settling into his role of lawkeeper with Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas) as his second, is encountering problems already. One of the Castithans who ran during the battle with the Volge is taken to…

Defiance S01 – Pilot

  I came in cold to this series, though Showcase was kind enough to send me a screener of the series opener, and within minutes I was wowed by the show, if I had known that Rockne S. O’Bannon of Farscape fame had developed it for television, it probably would have taken less time. The…

Haven – Season 3, Episode 3 – The Farmer

Have I mentioned yet how much I love the darker path that Haven is taking so far this season?  The stakes have never been higher for our heroes in so many ways, and the fact that the Troubles are getting creepier and more…far-reaching…this season, just goes to show how much more everyone has to lose…

Haven – Season 3, Episode 2: Stay

As an animal lover, it’s possible I am a bit biased, but I loved this week’s episode of Haven!  This is really not my best write-up, however, so please don’t let my lack of skills deter you from checking it out.  The ep and the show are just better than my ability to translate, is…

Haven: Season 3, Episode 1 – 301

  Well, if the Season 2 finale ended with a bang, then the Season 3 premiere can be said to have blown things wide open!  This episode was an incredible rush from start to finish, and if the rest of the season is at all like its opener, then we are in for a dark…

Haven 101:

A Fairly Spoiler-Free Guide To The First Two Seasons Of One Of TV’s Finest Shows Haven is a supernatural series based on a short story by Stephen King called The Colorado Kid.  It all takes place in the small fictional coast town of Haven, Maine, where mysterious things happen sometimes, and no one has been able to…

Hollywood Treasure

I will openly admit I came to this show late, they’re already 6 episodes into Season 2, and I am just starting Season 1. That being said, I did fly through 3 episodes last night, so I don’t see a problem with me catching up in no time at all. I’m not always the biggest…
