Terra Nova’s first (and likely last) season is now done. The two hours season/series finale was a fun tour-de-force with all the great element that make this show work.

dinosaurs, heroism, a little sexual tension..the dad that won’t leave his kids..

But let’s cut to the chase…

What is in the Badlands? They found the remains of an 18th century ship?…and the Phoenix people all run to it when they thought they were cut off from the future?

It has to be the BERMUDA TRIANGLE or some other kind of second gate/portal to the future.

Yeaah it’s that obvious.


Star Wars Agent of the Empire: Dark Horse? Srsly? You’re doing this instead of Legacy?? December 18, 2011

Ever since John Ostrander revealed he would be working on a new series – after the greatest Dark Horse Star Wars comic of all time — Legacy — we’ve been excited about his new project.

After reading it – we’re interested, but a bit underwhelmed.

Agent of the Empire is essentially a James Bond kind of character working for the Empire.

Ok that’s alright, but he’s a stick figure of a character (so far) without much personality.

That artwork is passable and not up to Legacy standards yet either.

And from a canon perspective – when did we find out that Han Solo went to the Imperial Academy? somehow i missed that before…a neat twist though and seeing a younger Han Solo makes this book almost worthwhile.

So long story short, empire’s agent is hunting down bad apples in the Empire…..

Sure we’ll keep reading this – it’s only a five issue series after all – but the premise isn’t nearly as strong as the previous generation of Star Wars titles and so far, neither is the plot, artwork or characters.

We weren’t particularly big fans of Enterprise when it was on TV…but we have been big fans of the Romulan War series, beginning with Kobyashi Maru which is a FANTASTIC book.

That story continued in The Romulan War – which similarly was a great read..so yeah we had high expectation for To Brave The Storm and Michael Martin delivers.

This is a real conclusion to the Romulan War saga…and a more fitting end to Star Trek Enterprise than the crap that showed up on TV.

We get some real insight into the Romulan Star Empire of the day and Vulcans too…

But perhaps most importantly, we get the final resolution of the whole Trip / T’Pol situation. That resolution doesn’t come until the last page of this book, in a brilliantly crafted literary maneuver of looking back 25 years after the founding of the Federation (and the Romulan War itself).

No, I don’t know how or if any other writer could possibly now extend Enterprise – this is likely it and it’s a fitting end.

We’re always looking for neat Star Wars vids here on ShowMeSciFi – we recently came across really cool music one. Where the musicians play Star Wars music on their cellos, while fighting lightsabers and an accordian playing Darth Vader (Mos Eisly Cantina theme no less).


Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan – REVIEW – what a sad, sad story December 2, 2011

After playing Knights of the Old Republic we all know Revan. The Jedi that went after the Mandalorians then was turned to the dark side as Darth Revan, then back to the light to destroy Darth Malak.

But what happens after that?

That’s where the new Star Wars: The Old Republic: Revan comes in, right after those games.

The first half of this book is pure AWESOME. We see the real Revan, the human, the husband and the man.

Then by way of his friendship with the Mandalorian Candorous, we begin to see the Revan we all know from the game.  Match that up with the parallel plot of Darth Scourge on the other side ..and wow this was a book that we just could not put down. Scourge was headed the other way from the dark to the light …


well (spoiler alert)…………….

Meetra (the Exile) returns to save Revan and then WTF happens? what a sad, depressing ending. This is much worse than Han Solo trapped in Carbonite. Revan was close to ending the Emperor and then instead he suffers in stasis, never knowing his son.

Then again, I suppose since this is all lead-up for the new Old Republic game what this book does is it set up the return of Revan. Since he’s not dead…it would make sense that for the Jedi one mission would be to retrieve Revan from stasis to help defeat the Sith…

Anyways…another awesome old republic book..and hey the game is out soon too…and we can hardly wait.
