Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The Force is strong in this on. Go see it.

Go see it now!

Gripping events happen. People react to them like real people. There's even genuine humor. As an added plus, the folks with Force powers don't act like total idiots. You know, all the stuff that was missing from the still-life merchandising scam Lucas tried to pass off as a prequel trilogy.

The Expanse: "The Big Empty," 'Remember the Cant," and "CQB" (Season 1, Episodes 2-4)

Four episodes in this is a good show. (Confession: I watched episodes 3 and 4 online in advance). It's well written, decently paced, solidly acted and has some impressive special effects for cable TV. It's not only doing world building--it looks like it might have a world worth building.

Welcome to my final “Retrospeculative TV” review. I had always intended to do more of these, but reviewing an entire series gets kind of grueling after a while, particularly when you're kind of burned out on the show, and when you know no one is reading anyway. After taking a substantial break, I decided to resume my coverage of Babylon 5, working my way through Season 3, and possibly on to the end of the show.

The Expanse: "Dulcinea" (Season 1, Episode 1)

Wonder of wonders. SyFy has woken from the dead and is actually trying to be a science fiction channel again. Succeeding more than it fails, too, in tonight's premiere of The Expanse. The sci-fi feel is right, there's some legitimate world-building going on and enough decent visuals to triumph over the herky-jerky feel of cramming all that into an hour of television.

Thanks to the walking miracle of robotechnology that is Dave, I now have an Amazon author's page. What this means is that my books are now all linked together on one page. All you have to do is put in my name and it takes you there, rather than having to surf all over creation to find my stuff.
