4/5 88% Cosmos (2016) "It's tricky not to be ensnared by the beguiling yet intriguing nature of it all. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Aug 25, 2016
3/5 48% Batman: The Killing Joke (2016) "Alan Moore probably wouldn't appreciate us saying it, but The Killing Joke story itself feels made for the screen. It's hard to truly critique something when it takes its cues from a truly excellent comic-book storyline. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Jul 29, 2016
4/5 96% Supergirl: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "All in all, it's a solid first outing for Supergirl, and with the series' future now in the hands of The CW, the future looks suitably optimistic. " ‐ SciFiNow

100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 10 "In other words, Game Of Thrones is back to its brilliant best. And just as well: Winter is here. " ‐ SciFiNow

5/5 93% The Leftovers: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "We suspect that this will be a show that becomes more popular in retrospect than it is currently, but in the meantime we'll savour the fact that it still exists. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Jun 21, 2016
4/5 98% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 9 "It's been a vastly improved year for Game of Thrones -- all that's left is to round it off in style. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Jun 20, 2016
3/5 87% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 8 "As it is, there are still a number of standout moments, but due to some questionable directorial decisions it isn't quite what it could have happened. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Jun 13, 2016
5/5 79% Outcast: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Granted, it won't always have the excellent Adam Wingard in the director's chair, but it will have Kirkman. So all in all, solid opening episode. Looking forward to next time. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Jun 12, 2016
4/5 98% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 7 "Even as the chess pieces line up for the battle for the north, King's Landing's own power play looks to be heading in an interesting direction. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Jun 7, 2016
3/5 54% The Shannara Chronicles: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Judging by the ending and various cliffhangers that are posed, it seems that The Shannara Chronicles has studied the Game Of Thrones rulebook and drawn its own conclusions, but that's no bad thing. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Jun 6, 2016
4/5 91% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 6 "You could be forgiven for wondering exactly how 'Blood Of My Blood' would it follow it up. The answer, as it turns out, is in workmanlike fashion; efficient, but not too fancy, although with a sprinkling of stardust. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted May 30, 2016
4/5 No Score Yet The Leech Woman (1960) "Despite being 56 years old, and obviously of its time in a number of respects (the portrayal of the African tribesmen is vintage Hollywood), The Leech Woman is equally light years ahead in others. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted May 23, 2016
4/5 100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 5 "Ok, now all bets are off. The creators of Game Of Thrones have proved that they're not afraid of making a statement or two, and they do so once more in 'The Door' , one of the show's most affecting - and one of its best - episodes in a while. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted May 23, 2016

Posted May 16, 2016
4/5 96% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 3 "The highlight of the episode has to be Bran Stark's latest flashback scene, which fans will recognise as Ned Stark's assault on the Tower of Joy to rescue his sister Lyanna after the defeat of Aerys 'The Mad King' Targaryen. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted May 9, 2016
3/5 92% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 2 "Season 6's second episode continues in much the same vein as last week: moving the chess pieces into position in anticipation of the more important events to come, albeit doing so in a bloody and haphazard way. This is chess with an R-rating. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted May 2, 2016
3/5 92% Game of Thrones: Season 6 Episode 1 "As is customary, there is still plenty to enjoy... but there's also plenty of room for improvement. Still, it's good to have it back. " ‐ SciFiNow

2/5 No Score Yet Pandorica "Everything's stylishly shot by director Tom Paton, but the lack of anything beyond this gives us few reasons to actually care about what's going on. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Apr 8, 2016
4/5 47% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 16 "Six seasons in, The Walking Dead was in dire need of reinvention, just like any show would be in the same position. Now, it finally has that, and for the first time in a while we're genuinely looking forward to seeing where it's going. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Apr 5, 2016
68% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 15 "Essentially, this episode will surely be remembered for its piling of foreshadowing among foreshadowing... and something happening far sooner than we thought it would, we're all set for a truly epic final showdown next week. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Mar 28, 2016
4/5 59% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 14 "What initially threatened to showcase The Walking Dead's at times irritating propensity for needless filler episodes when there are more pressing issues at hand turns out to be one of its best instalments in a while. And we couldn't be happier. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Mar 21, 2016
3/5 19% Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (2016) "The story just isn't as captivating as it needs to be. " ‐ SciFiNow

100% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 13 "For not the first time, this feels like a turning point for some of its characters, although considering their sudden influx of screen time, we have to admit that we're worried for Maggie and Carol. " ‐ SciFiNow

Posted Mar 8, 2016
3/5 96% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 12 "All the predictable plot episodes aside, it's an episode that promises a lot, and once again returns of that Walking Dead staple of making you bite-your-nails anxious about what will follow next week. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Mar 7, 2016
3/5 96% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 11 "If nothing else, this episode's prime function seems to have been to ensure that you keep watching, week in week out. In that sense it's mission accomplished, but it's a shame that there's not more meat on its bones. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Feb 29, 2016

Posted Feb 22, 2016
97% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 9 "It's almost a relief that you can't assign scores to individual scenes, because if you could, the opening of 'No Way Out' would have been off the scale. In the best way. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Feb 16, 2016
3/5 86% Falling Skies: Season 5 (TV, 2015) "It benefits from the resolution that many shows don't get, and sits comfortably and competently in the Spielberg TV pantheon. " ‐ SciFiNow

Posted Nov 23, 2015
4/5 95% The Man in the High Castle: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's all done so matter-of-factly that it's hard to look away, even though that's what you'll sometimes want to do. It's haunting to watch, but you'll continue to do so all the same. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Nov 18, 2015

Posted Nov 16, 2015
3/5 93% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 4 "We'd still have preferred a straightforward follow up to last week, but moments of introspection like this don't hurt either. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Nov 2, 2015
4/5 97% The Walking Dead: Season 6 Episode 3 "While this season has definitely seen a step up in quality from last year, one thing it has been missing is an 'Oh my god, I can't believe that just happened!' moment... Well, the wait is officially over. " ‐ SciFiNow

4/5 81% The Leftovers: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "By turns harrowing yet unremittingly atmospheric, at times The Leftovers is an ordeal to get through. It's one you owe it to yourself to experience though. " ‐ SciFiNow

4/5 92% The Martian (2015) "Combined with the kind of breathtaking cinematography that gave the director his name, and a sense of diluted optimism running through it, and you have a film that sails through its lengthy run time. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Oct 1, 2015
4/5 97% The Flash: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) "Anyone turned off by DC's cinematic adventures could do with checking out The Flash - superheroes don't need to be dark and gritty to be appealing, and here's further proof to that effect. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Sep 23, 2015
4/5 67% The Big Bang Theory: Season 8 (TV, 2014-2015) "Saying that, every good show needs to reflect the time in which it is set, and in its own way The Big Bang Theory is attempting to do just that. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted Sep 21, 2015
3/5 79% Wayward Pines: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Shyamalan has built his career on pulling the proverbial chair from underneath his viewers, but this is the closest something with his name on it has come to matching the... epiphany of The Sixth Sense. " ‐ SciFiNow

Posted May 27, 2015
3/5 55% The Age of Adaline (2015) "The Age Of Adaline functions perfectly well as a harmless, fantasy-infused date movie. It's hard to really dislike. " ‐ SciFiNow
Posted May 13, 2015
2/5 52% Tokyo Tribe (2015) "There's a halfway interesting movie in here somewhere. Beneath the rampant sexism and borderline schizophrenic mishmash of tones, that is. " ‐ SciFiNow
