Charles H's picture

After an exciting and dangerous flight, they are here.

Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper, and Rhys Williams are taken in handcuffs to Heathrow Airport in London. They are escorted by CIA agent Rex Matheson and CIA agent Lynne (Dichen Lachman from Dollhouse). Rhys notes that Jack being mortal makes sense since everyone else is mortal. Rex takes Jacks wrist strap. Jack and Gwen are forced into the plane and Rhys and the baby are forced into a car.

What if nobody in the world could die? That is the enticing premise for the forth season of the British hit Torchwood. This season is ten episodes and is a partnership between Starz and BBC.

"ENEMY: STARFLEET" Now Online!

Republibot 3.0's picture

It may be eighteen months late, but The Star Trek: Phase 2 people have finally gotten "Enemy: Starfleet" online. It's available for free download at several places around the web, but if you're grossly incompetent (Like me!) you'll be unable to get any of 'em to work. Which means you can watch it here in tolerably low quality below the jump.

EPISODE REVIEW: Stargate Universe: “Gauntlet” (Season 2, Episode 20, Series Finale)

…and just like that, it ends. Not with a bang, not with a whimper, but with a profound silence that speaks off all that might have been, but never will. It’s a sad ending, a needless ending, but I see now what the producers meant: it’s a solid ending, and almost - if not quite - satisfying. This isn’t an ending, nor is it a cliffhanger in the way ‘Gate usually does ‘em, this is not a conclusion, but….but the story can rest here. As likely as not, it’ll never be revisited, as likely as not this is the end of Stargate forever, but we end with hope and silence.

Last time, as you recall, the Space Family Robinson had met up with the descendants of their own doppelgangers, who had been projected two thousand years back in time. They took the Descendants home to find their world, Novis, was dead. Tonight we pick up from that discovery…

Gender Politics and the Feminization of Science Fiction [EDIT: Link Fixed]

Republibot 3.0's picture

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON 10/28/09

Someone calling themselves “Pro-male/Anti-feminist Tech” over at the Spearhead has written an excellent (if one-sided) article about the feminization of Science Fiction of late. You can read the whole bit here http://www.the-spearhead.com/2009/10/09/the-war-on-science-fiction-and-m... but the gist is that once the Bonnie Hammer regime began at the old Sci-Fi Channel, she began a directed program of ’feminizing’ Science Fiction in order to broaden the network’s demographics.

EPISODE REVIEW: Caprica: “False Labor” (Episode 13)

Republibot 3.0's picture

I don’t think there’s any lingering doubt in anyones’ mind that this show is toast. Last week’s episode hit an all-time ratings low of 718,000 viewers. That means effectively the studio paid $4.17 for every viewer. That’s actually pretty sad, because this week, after a miserable three-week crapfest, the show suddenly found its footing again, and was pretty darn good.
