Almost Human… Lethal Weapon, Bladerunner style.

Sleepy Hollow… Ichabod Crane in the 21st century.

Here comes the new trailer for the Sleepy Hollow TV series from Fox, or as we like to call it here, Ichabod Crane in the 21st centuryyyyy! It looks like fun, with some sub-Dan Brown end of the world type McGuffins thrown into the mix. Official blurb reads… Ichabod Crane wakes up from the throes […]

Doctor Who – 2013 Season: The Crimson Horror by Mark Gatiss.

Cult Telefantasy Series by Sue Short (book review).

She uses the 1960s series ‘The Prisoner’ as the standard for all cult series after it. Although there’s a massive list at the back, I couldn’t help but wonder whether […]

NBC’s post-apocalyptic science fiction TV series Revolution moves into Georgia, which is getting rich having restarted trading with Europe in the new steam age. What’s wrong with wagons, clippers and six shooters anyway? That’s what the USA was built on, right?
