It’s sad when a good TV series comes to an end. Person of Interest had become one of my favorites and I was saddened to learn that it was ending, even though in retrospect it seemed obvious that the end was near.

It was certainly a conceptually relevant series in the age of mass state surveillance. I’ve often thought that, to a certain extent, Person of Interest negated any need for a television series based on the game Watch Dogs.

You are being watched. The government has a secret system, a machine that spies on you every hour of every day.

I know because I built it. I designed the machine to detect acts of terror, but it sees everything: violent crimes involving ordinary people … people like you. Crimes the government considered irrelevant.

They wouldn’t act so I decided I would. But, I needed a partner, someone with the skills to intervene. Hunted by the authorities, we work in secret. You will never find us. But, victim or perpetrator, if your number’s up … we’ll find you.”Harold Finch, Person of Interest (season one)

The Legend Of Korra is my new obsession, Thanks to Buzzfeed community member Candice Darden. She published a list of 25 Reasons Why You Should Watch “The Legend Of Korra”

The Expanse has been renewed for a second season on SyFy. I was pretty excited to learn that SyFy Network ordered a second season of  The Expanse

In its first season, The Expanse served up a winning recipe of interplanetary intrigue with overtones of oppression and conspiracy. The network must have been satisfied with the show's performance as they have increased the episode count from 10 to 13.

That's good because there aren't a lot of good science fiction television series on the air anymore. Sure, networks pick up shows that have an element of science fiction, but not much "Space Opera" or "Hard Science Fiction".  It's good news anytime a series like this gets a renewal.

The Expanse is based on a series of novels by James S.A. Corey (a singular pen name used by collaborative writers Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck). Currently there are six seven books in the main series:

  1. Leviathan Wakes
  2. Caliban's War
  3. Abaddon's Gate
  4. Cibola Burn
  5. Nemesis Games
  6. Babylon's Ashes
  7. Persepolis Rising

Additionally, there are a number of short stories and novellas set in The Expanse universe. I must confess that I haven't read the entire series and therefore cannot comment on the accuracy of the adaptation but generally the first season parallels events from Leviathan Wakes. It seems safe to assume that the next season will draw largely from Caliban's War.

The second season of the Expanse is expected to air on SyFy in 2017.

After what seems like years… oh wait it literally has been years. Well then – after years of stagnation it appears that SyFy will actually deliver on the promise of a BSG spin off. Battlestar Galactica: Blood And Chrome” chronicles the adventures of (a much younger) William Adama during the first cylon war.

It was rumored that the series was relegated to a series of webisodes. If you remember the 10 part web tie-in that ran alongside Battlestar galactica then you probably didn’t have high hopes for Blood and Chrome. Fortunately Machinima will air Blood and Chrome. Machinima has been delivering very high quality series of web programs. If previous examples of Machinima productions are any indication (“Mortal Kombat: Legacy” and “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn”) then BSG is in capable hands.
