Charles H's picture

Some forward momentum and some answers start to form.

Picking up right where the last episode ended, Jack, Gwen, Rex, and Esther are with Olivia Colasanto and are headed back to Angelo Colasanto’s house. They go into Angelo’s room. He is very old and lays in a hospital bed. Olivia says Angelo prolonged his life by lowering his body temperature, keeping a low blood pressure, etc. She tells them that Angelo observed Jack from a far ever since they departed in 1928. As they are visiting Angelo, Esther is listening and recording the entire conversation.

EPISODE REVIEW: Thundercats: "Song of the Petalars" (Episode 4)

Since I’m kinda jumping into the reviews of Thundercats I want to say a few things before I review episode 4. One, I was VERY impressed with the opening two-parter of this new series. In fact I was surprised at how enjoyable it was. The animation is a complete standout as mentioned by R3 along with the music. It brings to mind shows like Avatar: the Last Airbender. Lately it gets easy to take these things for granted but after watching another redone 80’s classic, Voltron Force on Nickleodeon, I can not reiterate enough just how much I appreciate the quality of the art and sound.

EPISODE REVIEW: Alphas: "Catch and Release" (Episode 7)

Jim Stiles's picture

According to Wikipedia, "Anarchism has been variously defined by sources. Most often, the term describes the political philosophy which considers the state undesirable, unnecessary, and harmful, and instead promotes a stateless society, or anarchy, while others have defined it as opposing authority in the conduct of human relations." During this episode, two guest actors played roles where the second definition of anarchism was operative in either the characters' speech, as by the non-Alpha welder, or in the character's actions, the genius Alpha played by Summer Glau (River Tam on Firefly).

So we are four episodes out to the end of Season 4 (4.5?) and the Astraeus mission is getting close to crunch time. But not without a minor hitch or two. The return of Tiny from her Titan prep mission and her rapid demise soon after she reaches Earth starts a series of investigations that culminate in a massive red cloud of doom hovering over the town and threatening to kill everyone. But even worse, a government bureaucrat descends on Eureka to assess the "intimate alliance" of two of Eureka's top personnel. Oh, noes!

Wil Avitt's picture

Greetings, everyone! How was your week? Mine was awesome because I lucked into a copy of the failed Wonder Woman pilot rejected by NBC. I can't reveal my source here, but I didn't download it (although I understand it to be widely available via the internet).

Jim Stiles's picture

This episode involves an kidnapping of the daughter of a wealthy business man who was played by Peter Wingfield (Methos on Highlander: The Series, Tanith on Stargate SG-1). This episode is not so much science fiction or fantasy as it is a conventional police procedural. Bill and Gary catch the perpetrators of a kidnapping using a combination of their Alpha talents (Bill - amazing strength, Gary - ability to read cell phone and wireless internet signals) and conventional police detective work.
