EPISODE REVIEW: Eureka: "Liftoff" (Season 4, Episode 11)

This week saw the return of Eureka from the seemingly eons long departure that was their mid-season break.  I'm beginning to have trouble understanding the logic to these breaks.  It almost seems that it would make more sense to start the season in July and end it in November if you're going to have a seven month break between episodes in a single season.  Maybe someone else can explain it to me.

There is very little in this world that is cooler than a ninja wearing a duster riding a chopper. A Ninja being chased by an angry robotic sandworm from “Dune” through tunnels while wearing a duster and riding a chopper is one of those very few things.

The first year of B5 is pretty inconsistent and dull, and never so much as in the first third of the season, but for those who’ve soldiered on thus far, they get some payoff: The mystery of Sinclair’s disappearance at the Battle of the Line is revealed, and a larger mystery emerges from that one.

EPISODE REVIEW: Falling Skies: "Grace" (Episode 4)

Fourth Episode: “Grace.”

We open with the captured Skitter being transported down the high school halls in a cage. Sort of a big, makeshift chicken coop. It doesn’t like it, which I suppose is normal. We’re not even a space faring civilization, but if you stuck one of us in a chicken coop, we wouldn’t like it, either.

EPISODE REVIEW: Falling Skies: "Live and Learn" (Episode 1)

Okay, let’s get the elephant in this room out of the way up front. Steven Spielberg is involved here (executive producer), so it’s not going to suck eggs. It’s going to meet minimum professional standards for television and not embarrass itself trying to go the bathroom. So there’s that.
