It’s bad news for the many fans of the Canadian supernatural series, ‘Lost Girl’, in that it is coming to an end after five seasons but at least there will be a conclusion to the long-running saga. Starring Anna Silk as Bo, the succubus from the world of the Fae, which basically means that she […]

The X-Files – 2016: the return, an appraisal by: GF Willmetts (TV review).

The spoilers are out there. Thirty years ago, it wasn’t unusual that after so many years, there was a ‘Return Of -’, be it shows like ‘I Spy’ and ‘Hunter’ to ‘The Six Million Dollar Man And The Bionic Woman’. Generally, it was a 90 minute TV film, but although having the original cast, these […]

Star Trek 365: The Original Series by Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdman (book review).

I reviewed ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation 365’ a couple years ago and now Abrams Books have let me loose on ‘Star Trek 365: The Original Series’ by Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdman. Half the book is full of colour photographs and the rest with information. The ‘365’ denotes the pages and the […]

Doctor Who: Season 9: Episode 13: The Husbands Of River Song by Steven Moffat

As usual with these examination of ‘Doctor Who’ stories shortly after transmission, if you haven’t seen them, I’ll try not to give away too many unintentional spoilers, although I will give a quick resume of the plot.

Batman (TV Milestones Series) by Matt Yockey    (book review)

Giving a book the name ‘Batman’ could mean anything to do with a certain dark knight. However, the series title ‘TV Milestones’ directs you to the TV and specifically to 1966-68 and not once calling Batman ‘the caped crusader’ or the pair of them ‘the dynamic duo’. Mind you, he did mis-spell ‘effect’ as ‘affect’ […]
