SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Ringer 1.14 Review: "Whores Don't Make That Much"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

ringer_iconIt feels like those responsible for making episodes of "Ringer" wants viewers to be surprised by the revelations they dole out in each episode. The thing is, those surprises are often telegraphed early and don't feel very earned. Everything that happened here wasn't as confusing as previous episodes, but it's missing that emotional connection to draw people in.

Casting News: David Morrisey to Play The Governor on "The Walking Dead"

By Karen Moul

Fans of The Walking Dead have been waiting to see The Governor, a major character in Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel. The wait was over this week as AMC announced on Friday that The Governor will appear in season three and that David Morrisey has been cast in the role.

Morrissey is from England and has appeared in many acclaimed British television series. He is perhaps better known to American audiences for his roles in feature films such as The Reaping, The Other Boleyn Girl, Centurion, The Water Horse, Nowhere Boy and Blitz.

Once Upon a Time 1.13 Review: "Whatever Happened to Frederick"

By John Keegan and Edmund Boys

once_upon_a_time“Once Upon A Time” has been stuck in a rut for a while now. And as that channel gets deeper, it’s harder and harder for the wheels to jump out of the track. In “Whatever Happened To Frederick”, for every sign of traction on the fairy-tale side, it was brought crashing back by uninspired storytelling and some really atrocious dialogue back in Storybrooke.

Merlin 4.8 Review: "Lamia"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

merlin"Lamia" is highly reminiscent of so many past "Merlin" monster-of-the-week episodes. There's a nice, spooky feel to the episode, and what it might lack in actual scares, it makes up for to a certain degree in atmosphere (especially near the end), except during one particular scene. I do love a good swashbuckling fight scene, but this one sticks out like a sore thumb in what is otherwise a straightforward chiller. Thankfully, this is only a minor distraction from the foreboding atmosphere.

Jeff Pinkner & Joel Wyman on Tonights Game Changing Episode of "Fringe"

**This interview was originally written for NoReruns.net**

By Jamie Ruby


FringeTonight Fox will air the last episode of Fringe, "The End of All Things," before a short hiatus. David Robert Jones returns, and with the ads showing the Observer, it looks to be an exciting episode. The two executive producers of the series, Jeff Pinker and J.H. Wyman, talked with the media yesterday about the all new episode, as well as a bit about what fans can expect moving forward.

The executive producers said that tonight's episode is definitely going to be important to the mythology of the series. According to Pinkner, "It's definitely, as they say, a game changer, in that our characters learn a lot more and the audience is going to learn a lot more about sort of the uber plot of our season bad guy David Robert Jones. The character...certainly for Peter this season and Olivia and Walter is going to start to unfold in ways that, hopefully, will be really both satisfying and challenging to our characters...It's very much a hinge episode that's going to launch us into the back half of the season."

It's That Time Again

If you follow SciFi Vision on twitter, you may have noticed that lately we have had an increase in interviews and such. SciFi Vision has been steadily expanding as our opportunities continue to increase. What you may not know is that up until recently, almost all of what you see on this site has been put up by yours truly (regardless of who it's written by), and most interviews (almost all the Syfy ones anyway) are generally done by me. Thankfully the staff and contributors continue to grow and the help I have gotten has been immeasurable.

With growth comes change and over the next couple weeks I will be once again changing some of the layout of the site. I love the design but it's becoming a bit overcrowded and will become more so as we start to cover more and more.

This is also to make room for our new contributor/partner site that we are excited to have on board: John Keegan/Critical Myth, who will be posting reviews of all your favorite shows (more are coming). That does not mean, however, that we aren't still happy to take review submissions for the site! The more the merrier!

As the site expands, so must the staff. We are currently looking for volunteers to help with the site: from posting news and press releases, to transcribing, to yes at times even doing interviews. There's only so much one girl can handle! As the site continues to cover more genres besides science fiction, we are especially looking for people who are interested in those other areas. If you are interested in any position here at SciFi Vision, please use the form, found by the hiring box on the left. If you have a site and are interested in becoming an affiliate, please let us know that as well.

And of course if you are reading this and are part of one of the shows that we cover and would like to be featured on the site, we'd love to have you. We also will be soon be accepting items for review (ie besides network screeners).

Stay tuned in the upcoming weeks to see the new and improved SciFi Vision.

The River 1.4 Review: "A Better Man"

By John Keegan and J.M. Graham

the-river-iconThis was an odd episode. After the credits rolled I looked back on it and considered it a pretty decent episode, one that certainly if it was in another series wouldn’t be really worth mentioning. But after realizing that it was the halfway point of the season, I got to be a bit more concerned. There was not any sense of urgency about the episode, and there hasn’t been really any sort of coherence in the narrative or in the development of the characters. So far it’s meant that the show has just been entertaining, if at times a bit farcical, but it’s nonetheless disappointing.

The Good Wife 3.15 Review: "Live From Damascus"

By John Keegan and Henry T.

thegoodwife-iconI viewed this episode as Will's fall from grace. He may have escaped grand jury indictment, but the show is not going to ignore every little last detail or its consequences. So Wendy Scott-Carr's last act for the SAO was to take the details of Will's client embezzlement to the bar association in a last-ditch effort to stick it to him by getting him disbarred.

Being Human US 2.6 Review: "Mama Said There'd Be Decades Like These"

By John Keegan

This was a tricky episode for “Being Human”, because as much as it has set up a lot of important plot elements in the first half of the season, the job isn’t quite done.  There are a couple of items to cover with Josh and Aidan before the consequences can start piling up, and in the meantime, they had to find something for Sally to do.

Simon Cowell & L.A. Reid: "The X Factor" Auditions Start Next Month

**This interview was originally written for NoReruns.net**

By Jamie Ruby

Simon Cowell and L.A. ReidThe vocal competition The X Factor, which will be airing once again this fall on Fox, will soon be holding auditions for its second season. Auditions open Thursday March 1.

One thing that makes The X Factor unique from some of the other voice series on television, is that it is open to not only solo artists but also vocal groups, the only limit being one must be age twelve or older. This season is also different from last in that now artists with pre-existing contracts can audition as well. The winner will receive a $5 million recording contract with Sony Music.

The unscripted series has previously discovered artists such as last year's winner Melanie Amaro, as well as finalists Astro, Chris Rene, Josh Krajcik, and Marcus Crow, all of who have signed major deals with Sony Music.

Simon Cowell, who is responsible for the idea and format of the series, will return as judge, as well as songwriter and record producer L.A. Reid, who is also the co-founder of LaFace Records.

Yesterday Cowell and Reid talked to the digital media about the upcoming auditions as well as the second season.
