EPISODE REVIEW: Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey: “The Immortals” (Episode 11)

Have I been too hard on this show? Last week, for the first time ever, I genuinely enjoyed an episode. For the first time, I had no real quibbles. For the first time the show managed to become more than the sum of its parts and actually achieved – for one, brief, shining moment – a quality on par with that of a second-string episode of “Nova.” You know, the filler episodes they throw in there to pad out the seasons that are genuinely interesting, but not nearly as interesting as their usual standard? Probably an episode featuring bugs or something…

EPISODE REVIEW: The 100: “Unity Day” (Episode 9)

First, the big news: “The 100” has been picked up for another season!

I have to admit I didn’t see that coming. The ratings haven’t been terrible, but they’re certainly lackluster.  Also, it turns out I was right: the first season WAS a 13-episode deal, which is common for midseason replacements. The second season deal is unclear, but it’s probably a more standard 22 episoe season. That’s  13 with an option to pick up the ‘back 9’ episodes if the ratings are good enough to justify it.

Before we begin, I’m going to do a shameless plug for my new book, “The Bones of an Angel,” which is available for sale on Smashwords here https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/433927 and on Amazon here http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00K348VGI  (Sorry for the long URL links. I don’t know how to embed them on this website). It just came out this month, it’s been consistently five-star reviewed, and it’s only a freakin’ buck ninety-nine. How can you lose?

EPISODE REVIEW: The 100: “Day Trip” (Episode 8)

I’ve got oddly little to ramble about this week, apart from one thing that’s been nagging me since day one: if you look closely at the tracking shots of the Ark, you’ll notice a couple space shuttles docked to it. I keep meaning to mention it, but I always forget.

Oh, quick side-note: for those of you who only know me from my reviews of this show, I just published my fourth book, “The Bones of an Angel.” Check it out here http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/433927 or on Amazon. It’s only $1.99.
