What did you think of the Terra Nova finale? Sorry for the delay on this post but with the holidays and all I’ve been pretty busy. I’m not surprised they left a hook for possible time travel. But it might have been better if they had not. One of my ongoing complains about the series […]

“Jerry… that’s a horrible vampire name.” I purposely skipped seeing the new “Fright Night” in theaters. I’m generally not a fan of franchise reboot movies. Occasionally it is nice to see a familiar subject re-imagined with current cinematic technology. Unfortunately the new films fail to live up to expectations all too often. The new Nightmare […]
It took long enough but the FOX series “Terra Nova” finally succeeded in breaking a plot arc. The mystery of “the equations” has been brewing from the very beginning of the series. Almost immediately viewers we teased with mysterious symbols found scrawled on rocks near a waterfall that Commander Taylor had ordered off limits to the Terra Nova Colonists.
Soldier is a 1998 action flick about um… a soldier known only as “Todd”. Todd is a good name for a soldier right? Anyway Todd was selected at birth to be plunged into life-long combat and cold military discipline. Ultimately replaced by a ‘better soldier’ after a lifetime of outstanding service, the obsolete warrior is discarded on a barren waste dump planet.
It would appear The door is still open for some kind of romance between Lincoln and Olivia. The two meet in a diner after Olivia’s late night walk to a pharmacy. Agent Lee has guessed that Peter and Olivia were a couple in the world that Peter comes from. Peter assures agent Lee that the Olivia Dunham he’s talking about; is not Peter’s Olivia. At the conclusion of the case, Olivia and Lincoln tentatively plan to met again at the diner. Unfortunately Olivia is incapacitated by some kind of nerve gas.
I was really hoping that this episode would lead to Peter being re-integrated into the fringe team. Unfortunately Peter now seems to feel that this isn’t his universe after all. Although he has no recollection of causing either Walter’s visions or Olivia’s dreams, those occurrences would lead you to believe that peter was once part of their universe.
Novation is probably one of the most interesting episodes of fringe so far in season four. Peter Bishop has returned but none of his fringe division colleagues remember him. In Walter’s recollection the alternate Peter drowned at Raven Lake during Walter’s attempt to retrieve him from the mirror universe. in the timeline that we are accustomed to the observer told Walter and Peter from the icy water; and act which the observer cites as interrupting the balance of the universe.
With Fringe being absent this past Friday and Terra Nova being absent this past Monday, it has been a dry week for fans of scifi television. I’m not really a big fan of watching televised baseball. The world series bores me to tears. I’ve been watching old episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise in the evenings. […]
If you haven’t yet made it to theaters to see “The Thing” I highly recommend that you do so while the film is still in theatrical release. If, like me, you are a fan of the 1982 version starring Kurt Russell; I promise you will not be disappointed. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is excellent in this […]
