I think this suggestion is for all the ladies out there, though I could be wrong. It seemed like appropriate timing after the lead actress got what she deserved, an Emmy in a lead role for a drama. I recently checked out this series and am head over heels addicted, so even though it still hasn’t finished, I just had to tell you all about it, minor spoilers included if you continue.
It’s been too long since I’ve written a post for you all, and here I come back with a shocker. This one is just as much a shock for me as it might be for you. No, I am not writing about the recent reboot of the X-Files. Instead I am writing about the good old classic TV show from the 1990’s. The show that I grew up loving, one that made me interested in pursuing a career in medicine, and got me all sorts of excited about all things science-fiction. It was probably my first on screen crush as well, as 12-year old me was head over heels for Fox Mulder. So here I am, over twenty years later, re-watching the classic and iconic TV show. Watching this show has left me surprised and shocked in many ways, and I want to tell you why. I doubt there will be many spoilers here, but just in case, be forewarned this will be full of spoilers, and revelations.
Time to play catch up in the final frontier. Being such a self-proclaimed science fiction aficionado it’s only fair that I make it through all the Star Trek series, and I have been making it so with the TNG part of the franchise. I’ve got my tips on the best episodes of Seasons 2 and 3 for you, as well as the ones I wish I had skipped.
Successfully completing my mission to watch all of the Terminator movies, I can finally bring you my reviews of the most recent two installments in the series. A combination of explosions, psychopathic futuristic machines, and time travel science fiction, I can see why a lot of people love these movies. And the pounding drums of the main (albeit simple) theme song instill both a feeling of fear, anticipation, and determination. Here’s my take on these last two films, from a Lilith perspective.
Last week we discussed The Ood, a phenomenal alien species from the Who Universe, but it got me thinking about more “hive minded” alien species. And what better example than the classic “bugger” species known as “The Formics”? So today we will venture in to the mind and times of Ender Wiggin and discussed The Formic species for our creature comforts spotlight.
