Blame of Thrones?

Blame of Thrones?

Since any observations I have about science fiction this week are more or less overshadowed in the UK by the Duke of Edinburgh’s passing, a fellow who’s been adjacent to the throne for as long as I have been alive, I figured I might as well throw my two pennies in as well. I barely […]

A good bit of evil.

A good bit of evil.

I just finished watching the last episode of the second season for the post-apocalyptic ice age hell of a train set that is Snowpiercer. I will try to keep this relatively spoiler-free for those of you who haven’t seen this series on Netflix yet. The fundamental difference between the two seasons is the return of […]

Cover me!

Cover me!

I’m going to tell you something I don’t believe I have told you before. It’s a shocking secret about yours truly. Some of you may think of me as an author, but before I was a writer, before I was even an unpublished wannabe author, I was a failed comic-book artist. That is to say, […]

Thumping the Shark?

Thumping the Shark?

Well, I’ve now finished the WandaVision TV series, as hopefully have you, given the rest of this editorial will feature the odd spoiler or two. In many fantasy/science fiction TV series that have run a long time, there is a noble tradition of featuring the occasional bat-shit crazy ‘trick’ episode which diverts from their run-of-the-mill staple fare. […]

Why do the Martians glow above, don’t they know it’s the end of the world?

Why do the Martians glow above, don’t they know it’s the end of the world?

So, I have just finished watching Tribes of Europa. I went into this new Netflix science fiction TV series with low expectations for some reason. Maybe it was because it is made in Germany with mainly German language spoken? Or perhaps it was the trailer that made it seem like a knockoff of teen sci-fi fluff […]

There can be only one?

There can be only one?

It is becoming increasingly obvious to those following the story that there is more to the so-called retirement of Jeff Bezos from Amazon than meets the eye. The smart money is on the fact that Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk are now seriously competing on the legacy project of who gets bragging rights in the […]

I just need a little space?

I just need a little space?

As the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel glimmers concerning our lockdown – thanks, scientists and vaccine team – my mind turns to what the future may bring us, and what role I may play in this dream. It appears I am not the only one. The world’s richest science fiction fan, and […]

Extra sugar needed?

Extra sugar needed?

He is an interesting new psychological trend, which I am now wondering whether it’s confined to myself? The comet-striking-the-Earth movie Greenland recently popped up “for free” to Amazon Prime subscribers and I started watching it, but then needed to abandon the film after a short while. Not because it’s rubbish, but because the movie is all too […]

The Wonder of WandaVision?

The Wonder of WandaVision?

It’s been a quiet media twelve months, what with all new films/TV series being slow-walked, and all the titles that should have taken place being rolled down the hill, always tantalisingly out of reach … No! Come back, James Bond, come back Dune! There are a couple of things I watched recently. Starting with the […]
