Looking forward to ‘Altered Carbon’

I thoroughly enjoyed Richard Morgan's 'Altered Carbon' and was excited to hear it was being adapted for TV in the form of a Netflix show. I love good, well thought out sci-Fi and this book has it in spades. Set five hundred years in the future, humans have developed the technology that allows us to ...

Star Trek: Discovery renewed for a second season!

Excellent news, fellow geeks: Star Trek: Discovery has been confirmed for a second season. That nagging doubt at the back of my mind that we would only get one season - for any number of reasons - has evaporated, and I can enjoy the show more than ever. Just in time, too, as last night's ...

Some thoughts on Star Trek: Discovery

We're five episodes into the first season of Star Trek: Discovery and it's safe to say I'm hooked. It's turned out to be a better show than I could have hoped for! With high production values (no wobbly sets or dodgy make-up), interesting characters and a fair bit of moral ambiguity, it makes for compelling ...

MacPsych at the Movies: Rogue One

So. This was a long time coming. Or at least that's how it felt. A new Star Wars movie, this time another prequel, just one year on the heels of  Star Wars sequel. Confusing, perhaps, for those of us not steeped in the Star Wars universe and its complex history. But Rogue One does a ...

The Westworld Triumph

I've finally watched all of Westworld season one and I'm left wanting more - much more. A sure sign of an excellent TV show. If you haven't come cross it yet, the premise is loosely based on the Westworld film of 1973, where a 'wild west' theme park is manned by robots. Forty-three years later, ...

This has me so excited

The new trailer for Rogue One dropped the other day and I've watched it over and over since. Such a geek, such a Star Wars fan. https://youtu.be/frdj1zb9sMY The trailer is so well cut - it's tantalising and dramatic. Fleeting shots of characters and scenes you just want to know more about. It's already being examined ...

New Star Trek trailer: wow!

So the new Star Trek: Beyond trailer dropped a few hours ago. I've now watched it about six times and can't wait to see this on a massive screen. It's a big improvement over the last trailer, but I'll withhold judgement until I've seen the whole thing. Only a couple of months to go! https://youtu.be/dCyv5xKIqlw

Star Trek possibilities

The news that there's a new Star Trek TV show on the way did not escape me. Not one bit. To say I was excited would be an understatement. I still remember tuning in to see the first episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation and how I neglected dinner and the school friend who ...

Some thoughts on *that* trailer

I won't lie. It was the first thing I did when I woke up yesterday. I'd received an excited tweet from @Nutchild with a link to the new Star Wars trailer. I played it immediately, on my iPhone 6 plus. I played it again while still in bed. And then again. I played it once ...
