Advance Review: Dark Matter - A Fun and Kick-Ass Ride

Dark MatterOn June 12th, Syfy premieres the new original space opera, Dark Matter, which is based on the Dark Horse Comics' graphic novel by the same name, by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, who serve as executive producers on the series. The show focuses on the crew of a derelict spacecraft who awaken from stasis with no memory of who they are, where they are, or why they are there. The six crew members, along with the ship's android, must work together to find answers.

The well-written script draws you in, but along with the drama and action, it also contains moments of humor to keep it light. I greatly enjoyed the mystery element in the pilot and the surprises along the way, and can tell from the first episode that the story is one that has staying power, and the characters can be taken a lot of interesting places.

Advance Review: Wayward Pines - A Gripping Psychological Thriller That Keeps Getting Better

Wayward PinesMay 14th FOX will premiere its new 10 episode limited series Wayward Pines. The psychological thriller, starring Matt Dillon, is based on Blake Crouch's international best-selling book series and was adapted for television by Chad Hodge. The premiere episode was directed by M. Night Shyamalan, who also serves as executive producer.

The series follows Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Dillon) and his search for two missing agents, including his partner, Kate Hewson (Carla Gugino), which is turned upside-down when he enters the strange town of Wayward Pines. Outwardly the town looks idyllic: a great place to settle down and raise a family, but all is not what it seems. When his car is hit head on by a truck, Burke is thrust into the community.

Within ten minutes of starting Wayward Pines, I already could tell I would be hooked on this series. As usual with Shyamalan's projects, the show has a creepy atmosphere that leaves you questioning everything and wanting more, and is of course filmed beautifully.

Advance Review: Broadchurch Season 2 Finale, Airing Tonight on BBC America

BroadchurchWill Joe be convicted of murder, or will he walk free? Who killed Lisa Newberry and Pippa Gillespie? Will the Latimer family be able to survive the trial? And, perhaps most importantly, will Miller and Hardy become a couple? These are just a few of the questions that were proposed at the beginning of Broadchurch’s second season, and viewers can rest assured, they will be answered in the season finale.

Throughout Broadchurch’s sophomore season, viewers have been biting their nails throughout the swirling intrigue of the converging plotlines (as well as the annoying court case, but more on that later). Coming off of the fast-paced first season, this season has had its stagnant moments. However, just when the viewer starts to worry, the story takes an unexpected twist, which is expertly handled by writer/creator, Chris Chibnall. Courtroom drama expert Chibnall is not, as evidenced by the numerous goofs in his courtroom scenes. That said, Chibnall’s strong skills in mystery, relationship drama, and suspense are immaculate, allowing the audience to forgive him for any transgression on the courtroom front. Finales can always be difficult, and dealing with tough subject matter means that endings are never happy. Yet Chibnall manages to draw all storylines to a satisfying close, leaving just enough room for a third season.

The MessengersTonight the new series The Messengers premieres on The CW. In the first episode, a mysterious object crashes on earth, exploding in blinding light.

After the event, the few are not the same as before and have special gifts, from extra strength to the ability to heal. An even bigger change? They all have beautiful white wings in their reflections.

Advance Review: Bitten Returns with Darker Tones & More Bite

BittenBitten returns Friday night to Syfy with an all-new special two-hour premiere of season two.

Season two brings a new supernatural element to the show as witches are introduced. The Pack meet two witches are willing to do what they need to get what they want, even if it involves hurting werewolves, who they say they want to help. The worst part is, there is someone or something much much worse out there, something even Malcolm's afraid of.

Helix - Mother - 2.10 Review

HelixLast night's Helix was a doozy, and half the characters have gone off the deep end.

Last week Sarah attempted to make Landry immortal, and this week we get to see the complete result of that disaster, as he looks like Quasimodo. Amy has absolutely no patience and flips her lid, demanding Sarah fix it. Sarah is running out of time, as now Amy found another immortal to get what she wants from: Julia.

Julia thinks she can stop Ilaria from genocide by finding Michael's research for global sterilization. They just need the "mother" tree root, which Michael entrusted the location of to only two people: Anne and Landry - her son. So crazy Amy has been getting off her own brother. Though apparently everyone on the island is related to her anyway, as Michael has been raping all the women of the island. I think this show likes incest a bit too much.

iZombie - a Quirky, Fun, & Unique Take on the Genre

iZombieTuesday The CW will be premiering its new series, iZombie.

Zombies are certainly popular as of late with the success of the hugely watched The Walking Dead and other recent projects like Syfy's Z Nation and films the past few years such as World War Z and Warm Bodies. Comparisons are obviously going to be made by many. Upon reading about iZombie, however, it seemed like it would be something different, and it was.

iZombie is a quirky and fun romp. It's got the humor and heart of Warm Bodies, but it's definitely its own thing. The show doesn't take itself too serious at times, which is as it should be.

The series, which is based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred for the comic book of the same name, follows Olivia "Liv" Moore, played by Rose McIver (Masters of Sex, Once Upon a Time), who has a bright future ahead of her in medicine and even a handsome fiance (Robert Buckley); everything is falling into place. Then suddenly everything is ripped away from her one night when she is turned into a zombie. Everything changes, from her look, to her upbeat personality.
