  • Your Crash Course to the World of Shannara

    Just in time for the premiere of MTV’s The Shannara Chronicles, based on the best-selling books by Terry Brooks, I am here to provide you with a crash course to the Four Lands (aka the world of Shannara). Now, I must tell you, I have been avoiding a lot of articles on the new show […]


  • The Expanse 1×03 Review: Remember the Cant

    The Expanse does a lot of things well. Firstly, this is a science-fiction show that still manages to be completely realistic. There is a nice dash of completely plausible future technology, such as the kind that Miller employs while trying to track Julie’s whereabouts, mixed with current technology, such as the weapons that are used […]

  • The 3 Best Things I Noticed in The 100 Season 3 Trailer

    Did you see it? Did you see that? Way earlier than I expected, the CW dropped the trailer for season 3 of The 100, which finally returns to our TV screens on January 21st. And after having seen it, I cannot believe that I am now expected to wait five weeks for this show to come […]


  • You Should Read the Starbound Trilogy, Because I Said So

    Starting with These Broken Stars, Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner created a fascinating “we are not alone” arc that spread over three connected, yet also self-contained novels. The questions introduced in These Broken Stars, the first installment in the trilogy, are slowly but surely answered throughout the rest of the series. This is a science fiction story […]

The empire is under communication lockdown and in desperate need of help, or their enemies in House Galton will […]
