Greetings my villainous compatriots, Lilith here with some back logged reviews for you. Since the only things that everyone wants to watch these days seem to be either GoT or TWD, it’s nice to know that there are some past movies and TV shows we can all enjoy. And being that we are on an off year from the Whoverse, I wanted to catch up with some spin offs. Plus one never really tires of watching Jack Harkness.
Sad that you aren’t going to get any new Doctor Who episodes this year? Me too, but why not delve in to one of the many spin off series instead? That’s what I did, and naturally I chose to start with Torchwood, since I don’t think anyone can get enough of Captain Jack Harkness.
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.
Now that I’ve finally left the sexist and oppressive visions that the 1960’s had for future space travel, I can move on to the rigid and unrealistic views encountered in the 1980’s. I shouldn’t be that harsh, considering Roddenberry did indeed have very advanced notions for the show, but I am beginning to wonder if being a Trekkie means enjoying a science fiction oriented soap opera. Yet there were some more enduring and enjoyable themes in this series when compared to the original. So far I would say I enjoy it significantly more than the original. This time I’ve decided to delve in to that taking an episode by episode approach, so that you might be able to pick and choose which episodes you want to watch in the future.
Hello again geeks, it’s been a little while since I wrote a post on a retired TV show, and today’s is near and dear to me. Way back when, my first post ever for the geeks, was for the original BBC series Primeval. I loved that show, and all the amazing dinosaurs and creatures that came with it. I was thrilled to find out that a Canadian network decided to reboot the show, and here is my review for you. Get ready for more dinos and spoilers but less British accents.
