Since launching in 1997, the Stargate franchise has seen 15 seasons of television and two DVD movies, becoming at one point the longest running science-fiction show in US history. I have to admit, I was a fan. The writing wasn’t always the best, and the deus ex machina solutions in later seasons were a little [...]
Didn’t laugh once. And, uh… yeah. No.
Fresh from their “hilariously unexpected non-cancellation”, as Joss Whedon describes it, Dollhouse returned with a bang on Friday and pretty much fulfilled all the changes I wanted to see in the show. More use of the ensemble cast? Certainly, and damn fine use it was too, with some scenes between Saunders and Topher that were [...]

Whilst the episode ran the risk of losing some of the phenomenal momentum that has been built up over the last few weeks, this Alan Ball-scripted pre-finale interlude introduced some [...]
So, the first season is already over, but fret not Jackie fans; a second season is on the way. Which is a damn good thing, as over the last 12 episodes I’ve grown to love some of these characters, and I’d hate to leave them in the condition they were at the end of this [...]
Chainsaws! Vomit! Nintendo Wii! This episode had it all. Oh, and some genuinely chilling scenes, as well as beautiful character moments and great plot developments. Read on for the review…
Wow. I kind of expected some sort of a cliffhanger to this episode, given that next week is the season finale, but I really didn’t predict that ending.
