Sure Ark of Truth wasn’t great – but Stargate Continuum looks to make up for that in spades.

No more of that Orii nonsense –

This is humans against Ga’ould as it should be with massive mothership battles, evil Jafaa and all the rest.

Ohh and Vala is a baad ass Ga’ould too.

The plot centers around the exploits of the Ga’ould Baal and his final (?) attempt to stop Earth from ever interfering with the reign of the Ga’ould in the galaxy. He travels through time and takes Earth’s gate, preventing the Giza expedition from ever unearthing it and the Stargate program from ever forming. Somehow, the members of SG-1 are immune to the time distortion and set-off to find T’ealc, who is still the first prime to Apophis. It’s a literal race against time as SG-1 try to discover the location of the gate and restore the timeline to it’s correct state.

Star Wars Legacy #25 Cade and the Princess June 26, 2008

Last time Cade saw the Princess Fel he was saving her from the Sith.

Now what — a year later he finally sees her again and there is no emotion at all. Seemed a bit odd.

Cade coming to the hidden Jedi Temple however is very cool great to see the Jedi still have an organized home of some sort and that maybe they’ll send out a hit squad to Kill Darth Krayt.

The issue with the Jedi that ‘killed’ Cade’s pal’s dad is going to be interesting to see how it plays out…

but the big thing of course is the coming three way alliance between Jedi, Imperial Knights and the Galactic Alliance against the Sith.

This series never disappoints and i’m wonderng how the big alliance will be impacted by Vector and the Muir Talisman when it hits them later this year.

Finally got around to seeing Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – likely could have just been called – Indiana Jones and the Transdimensional Aliens.

This movie was a real let down for me – weak plot – tired acting and action that wasn’t terribly exciting.

Now if Indy or Mutt got abducted by the Aliens and hunted for archeological treasures on a different planet ….

R2D2 Projector is Awesome June 16, 2008

Came across this just today – an R2D2 projector that will handle just about any type of input you can imagine, built in dvd player, iPhone dock and flash memory card reader.

the remote? a millennium falcon!

The price? A little steep at almost $3000 over on StarWarsShop.com.

What really got me excited though is this little video which shows everone’s favorite astromech droid in action (as a media playing droid!)

Battlestar Galactica 4×10 – EARTH!! but…..?? June 14, 2008

This was one fraked up episode. Four of the final five reveal themselves –

Cylon’s almost blow up all of humanity (again).

Somehow Starbuck’s magic viper has the co-ordinates for Earth magically pop up

Cylons and humans are friends again – four of final five get amnesty



They find Earth?? But it’s been destroyed by a nuclear holocaust.

OOHHH and no more new Battlestar Galactica episodes till 2009..and there are 12 more episode apparently still in the works.

I liked this episode until the Earth part – in the classic series getting to Earth was the whole purpose of the show as it was here.

With another 12 episodes to go (in 2009) what happens now??? Sure there are a lot of loose ends and oh yeah the final cylon who somehow will make all things btr.

Ronald Moore could have ended this mid-season finale with the jump to Earth and then just seeing the blue planet….but no he had to go and ruin it and remind us that his version of Battlestar Galactica is a dark place where no one is ever really happy and its all just a big frakin allegory for how messed up our own planet is.

A year or more from now when Battlestar Galactica returns sure we’ll watch – we all want to know what happens.

Though one thing for sure now – Battlestar Galactica 1980 isn’t happening again..Starbuck isn’t going to walk into a McDonalds and no one can ever truly go home again.

At least they didn’t show a Planet of the Apes Statue of Liberty sticking out of the mud but the vision of a destroyed New York isn’t all that far off. One day, i’d really like to see a truly original view of Earth in popular SciFi instead of the same boring vision.

Chad Vader’s Weird Jimmy is just plain WEIRD June 13, 2008

Another Chad Vader training video is now out – this latest one is titled ,”Chad Vader Training “Custodial Empowerment and You”.

Basically it’s about Weird Jimmy and his mop.

NO it’s not particularly great – but come on it’s Chad Vader and Chad is funny even if his co-stars are not.

Stephen King Dark Tower : The Long Road Home #4 June 11, 2008

Sheemie is going to save Roland??!

Get outta here.

This is how you know this is not Stephen King but another writer…or maybe I’m wrong…

Another solid story overall as the bipolar plot line continues with Roland still stuck in the sphere and the rest of the ka-tet outside fighting off the wolves…

Art as always is solid – if not disturbing.

Only one more to go and it’s painfully obvious what will happen (or is it?) should be another real keep and we can hardly wait.

Star Trek New Frontier #3 June 10, 2008

Yeaaah I know we wrote that the last issue didn’t make any sense (so why would we continue to buy this title right?)..bUT hey there is only so much SciFi on the comic book shelves these days and I want to support my local retailer.

That said Star Trek New Frontier #3 is a decent issue….the plot twists thicken as we learn that Admiral Jelico isn’t quite who he seems to be…we don’t see Shelby at all in this issue (a good thing)..but we do get some humor..from the Romulans of all places

The overall content per issue ..the bang for the buck..is still sorely lacking, but for now I’m hooked on Star Trek New Frontier and i’lll be reading till the end of the series to see where it goes.

Star Wars Dark Times #11 Vector part 5 June 9, 2008

Dark Times enters Vector with the best artist in the Star Wars Universe Doug Wheatley.

Vader comes into possession of the living coffin that Zayne left Celeste in…The way that Wheatley draws Celeste is VASTLY superior to the cartoon bitch she was in Knights of the Old Republic. She’s not a cartoon character she’s ‘real’ and so is her anger.

Celesete wakes up ready to fulfill her goal of eliminating the Sith ..by taking on Vader. I’m not sure how Bomo and his band of friends will fit in…but the Vader angle is slick.

Vader has little or no relationship with the ancient Sith at this point so this might be an interesting part of his further exploration of his Sith legacy.

It’ll also be interesting to see how they get rid of Celeste or the Talisman this time around…

Battlestar Galactica 4×9 : Death to the Cylon! June 8, 2008

Another solid episode with the main Cylon resurrection hub getting nuked to oblivion…

BUT what gives with the lame background music during the battle?

What gives with the lack of any cylon on cylon dogfighting..or dogfighting in general?

What should have been a monumental battle wasn’t as good as it should have been

It didn’t have the action that it should have had and it lacked the pop that BSG once did so very well.

The 3 – Lucy Lawless is an awesome character and it’s great to see her back. She had the best scene in the whole episode when she dropped the bombshell that Roslyn is one of the final five cylon —-(what a head fake!!)

Yes it’s neat that Roslyn now loves Adama – wawawawa. And helo helped to double cross the cylon..ok…but now what?

With only one episode to go..till the frakin morons that run SciFi cut the series till what…2009?! there are more loose ends now then there were at the beginning of the season. Hopefully we won’t have to wait until June of 2009 but hey we JUST DON’T KNOW at this point.

Yes this is still a decent show, but the producers are trying real hard to do their best to kill it.

Knights of the Old Republic #29 : Exalted Part 1 June 5, 2008

wow…Dark Horse has really cranked up KOTOR lately …sure the Vector storyline that concluded in the last issue was tremendous — but this new story arc looks pretty cool too.

After all Zayne is finally going after the Covenant.

The only problem -AND ITS A HUGE PROBLEM WITH THIS KRIFING SERIES IS THE ART – Zayne is drawn completely differently but i’m kinda used to that..

But Jarael?? She is unrecognizable.

Doesn’t anyone have a style guide at Dark Horse? Is there no quality control?

Inconsistent character art aside – a great start to what will hopefully be the final resolution of Zayne and the Covenant’s attempt to pin the Padawan murders on him.

Serenity : Better Days #3 REVIEW June 4, 2008

So this is how Better Days ends…in typical Firefly fashion it’s an ending that leaves as many question as it answers.

Yes this was a good series but this last issue had a few flaws….

Like who was that guy that got fired from his job and then went nuts shooting at Alliance and Dirt Devil alike?

That was just odd.

Then in the end they’re all ‘just good’ seems a little strange but then again that’s the quirkiness that makes Firefly interesting.

The ending of this little series just felt a little rushed but then again maybe that’s just cause we want more Firefly.

I can hardly wait till the next Firefly Serenity series is out later this year which should be a focus just on the Shepard.

Terminator 4 Will Have New Skynet Toys Hunting Humans June 4, 2008

I remember the first vision of the post Judgment Day world…from the original (and still the best) Terminator. Reese and the resistance were fleeing from the HK’s – the hunter killer flying machines that Skynet deployed to destroy the resistance.

No word yet on whether or not the HKs will be in Terminator 4 – but we will see some other Skynet human hunting tech.

Director McG blogged that:

This movie takes place several years after Judgment Day, but prior to 2029. Just like it took a long time to get an HD plasma screen in our world, it took Skynet a lot of research and development to get to the T-800, and this movie explores that “space between.” We have all been fascinated with the world after Judgment Day. Here it is.

In this film, there are Hydrobots that patrol the water, Transports that move human prisoners around, Harvesters that collect human beings as lab rats for Skynet and Aerostats that survey all that is going on with the resistance the world over.

No HKs but still sounds kinda cool

Torchwood Gets Torched by BBC with Only 5 new episodes for 2009 June 3, 2008

Posted by showmescifi in scifi.
Tags: , , , , ,

We’re not big Torchwood fans here at ShowMeSciFi.com but it is a show that can grow on you…that is if it were allowed to grow.

The braniacs that run BBC have somehow decided that for season 3 of Torchwood there will only be five episodes.

What’s the POINT?! And how do these people get jobs working with SciFi? They obviously just want to taunt fans and drive audience interest down.
