Sky is the sixer spy.

Wow.

We didn’t see that one coming and her mom is still alive too. That’s a great twist especially after Josh had made a deal with the Sixers too.

Now the whole Enemy Mine (remember that movie?) thing was kinda neat too, Taylor and Mira aren’t all that different…but we did learn more about the future in.2149 with the seccessionists…what was that all about?

Terra Nova – It’s all about stealing from the past to feed the future November 28, 2011

Ok so now we know what Terra Nova is all about.

Col. Taylor had to kill his own commanding officer in order to preserve the ‘Hope’ of Terra Nova, as a new birthplace for mankind, when the reality is that it was just supposed to be a resource for the future to pillage.

We also finally understand that the Taylor’s son is the one behind the drawings on the cliff and the only one that really knows how to create a two way bridge to the future.

Sure this show progresses at a sometimes painfully slow pace, but it’s still entertaining and slowly but surely the plot is thickening. What’s not clear though is whether or not FOX has the cojones to keep this show on the air..remember this is the network that cancelled Firefly after all.

Star Wars Fate of the Jedi Ascension : REVIEW. Vestara is a Bitch November 10, 2011

The fate of the Jedi series has been up and down so far.

With Ascension we get some of the most kriffing nonesense plot elements ever and also some of the best. This book overall is a mess in terms of having any real credibility in terms of plot and dramatic progression. The again what should we have expected?

The first book in the series, Outcast saw Luke Skywalker exiled from Coruscant. Now in Ascension he’s back…and then he exiles all the Jedi from Coruscant.

The Backlash second book was ok, Allies was also ok,  Vortex was great and Conviction sucked arse.

****SPOILERS AHEAD ***************

How does Abeloth get Gavar Kai to fire on his own homeworld? that made no sense. How did Kai get others to join him? also made no sense. How and why did he end up on that other planet? Also no sense.

Vestara Killing him? Now that was great, so at least we don’t have to hear that whiny bstrd anymore.

But how do we go from the Lost Tribe wandering to having them in control of the Senate? in like what the span of a month or two? That makes no kriffing sense at all. Abeloth voted in as a Senator? well that i could see coming, but the Sith…i dunno.

The population going along with the imprisonment of Leia? I dunno about that either.

Daala magically getting her own fleet? Another pile of nonsense. But the twist where we thought Head of State Fel was dead was kinda neat.

We will say this…the book ended well. We’ve got Abeloth in control of the Senate, Vestara proving that she is a Sith Bitch after all and a showdown setup where the Jedi will come back and kiss arse.

 

 

Terra Nova – So far, so good. November 4, 2011

Long story short, we like Terra Nova.

The characters are real, the acting is great and the show holds our attention for the hour that it’s on every week.

We\ve got some decent insight into the workings of the colony in the 4 episodes we’ve seen so far..and lots of good stories about the ppl that live there.
We know about the sixers, but we don’t know what their deal is. We know that they can communicate with the future but we still have no idea what their beef is with Taylor.

As for the future..except for the first episode we’ve seen nothing. Let’s hope we see some future flashes soooner rather than later.

and PLEASE FOX DON’T SCREW THIS UP!!

Fringe – Peter is Back! but so are the shapeshifters November 4, 2011

sorry, but we have to admit that we had *almost* given up on Fringe. This season so far has mostly sucked with no real direction…

that is until the last couple of episodes when Peter ’emerged’ from the dead somehow…No the story doesn’t quite make sense, yet…Walter has his own set of memories about peter drowning the lake..it’s almost as if this was yet another new Earth…but it’s not.

How will all the world’s memories be restored? Was the time blip/look with the reports that Olivia encountered a sign of things to come?

NO this season doesn’t have the same entertainment value of ANY of the preceding seasons, but let’s hope FOX doesn’t kill the show entirely before they tell us WTF is going on.

(more…)
