Battlestar Galactica: Razor, is Amazing, – SO SAY WE ALL! Mostly Spoiler Free Review by Michelle Alexandria

Battlestar Galactica Razor Review - EclipseMagazine.com Television

When I went to the mailbox earlier this week there was a little surprise in my box namely a Sci-Fi screener for Battlestar Galactica: Razor. I generally do not review Sci-Fi Channel screeners because I get them so early in the process that the shows are usually incomplete, they are good for background information but not really to review. Razor was the first screener I received from them that was actually complete and wow, did I like this movie. I’m ready for the next season of BSG. (more…)

The Boondocks: Adult Swim’s Edgiest Series Returns!

October 8, 2007

The Boondocks EclipseMagaine.com TV Review

When the second season of The Boondocks premieres tonight [Adult Swim, 11:30/10:30C], there will be a few cosmetic changes. The animation is noticeably improved and the sound is better. What hasn’t changed is the way that stories written over a year ago will still seem as if they were ripped from today’s headlines.

Eureka’s Season Ender is Satisfying. Michelle Alexandria’s Review.

Eureka’s Season Ender is Satisfying. Michelle Alexandria’s EclipseMagazine.com TV Review.

This has been a year of discovery for me and one of those finds has been the quirky Sci-Fi show Eureka. When I met the cast at their Vancouver set, I had no clue what the show was about or even what I was looking at. And it seemed like 75 percent of the assembled press were in the same boat. But the Q and A with the cast really won everyone over and their sets truly were amazing. It was clear that the Sci-Fi Channel believed in this show and was going to give it time to find its audience.

NUMB3RS: The Mathematics of Trust!

September 27, 2007

EclipseMagaine Review - NUMB3RS

Now entering its fourth season on CBS [10/9C], Numb3rs continues to mix character, procedural and science [mathematics] elements in its own unique way to provide some of the quirkiest material of any of the far too many procedurals on TV. This season, Executive Producer Tony Scott steps behind the camera to direct Trust Metric, the season opener – and the conclusion to the sorta/kinda cliffhanger of last season’s finale.

EclipseMagazine Review - Stargate Atlantis

Friday night marks the return of one of the most consistently entertaining sci-fi series: the Sci Fi Channel’s Stargate: Atlantis [10/9C], .

Fall TV Preview

EclipseMagazine.com - Fall TV Preview

If there’s one word that can be used to describe this season’s new TV series, it’s risky. Just as a start, we have a remake of a ’70s series reimagined as the story of a woman unsure of her place in the world [Bionic Woman], a musical mystery series [Viva Laughlin] and a series about guy whose touch brings back the dead – though a further touch returns them to the state of death [Pushing Daisies]. Here’s a look at what you might expect in the next few weeks.

Battlestar Galactica: The Insurrection Begins!

September 27, 2006

Baltar & Six

We’ve had to wait an extra four months for the return of Battlestar Galactica [Sci Fi, Fridays, check local listings], but it was worth the wait. The special, Battlestar Galactica: The Story So Far, this week – and when the third season premieres, next week, it returns the show to its place in the ranks of the very best programs on television. It also begins four months after the Cylons discovered New Caprica and forced the government of the Twelve Colonies to surrender. Where to begin? The Leoben [Callum Keith Rennie] model has returned and taken Kara “Starbuck” Thrace [Katee Sackoff] away to live with him; the Brother Cavil model [Dean Stockwell] is advocating the reduction of the human populace to something more manageable; Lee “Apollo” Adama [Jamie Bamber] has gotten fat, and Gaius Baltar [James Callis] is now head of a puppet government. In short, things are going to hell in a handcart and there doesn’t seem to be anything anyone can do about it.  (more…)

The trick, when creating a successful spin-off, is to extend the creative palette in such a way as to maintain the core of what made the original successful, and then add enough of a change that the new series isn
