SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Once Upon a Time 1.22 Review: "A Land Without Magic"

By John Keegan and Edmund Boys

once_upon_a_timeAs the season finale of “Once Upon A Time” swirled around me, I kept being reminded of Paint-by-Numbers. Those simulations of creativity that, if slavishly followed, may produce a copy of a masterpiece, but one devoid of the original’s style, verve, and soul. The show hit major plot points, paid off long-simmering threads, but too much of it left me cold and unsatisfied.

Touch 1.10 Review: "Tessellations"

By John Keegan

touch_tv_show_iconWhile "Touch" is still too self-indulgent for its own good, and I don't see myself watching it after the end of the first season (unless the season finale changes things dramatically), this is the second episode in a row that worked for me. One big reason is the tighter focus of the writing; this episode, like the previous installment, has only two plot threads. This forces the writers to make the connections more logical.

"Grimm" Cast Teases Season Finale

By Karen Moul

Grimm on NBCGrimm’s first season was a bit of a slow burn, but recently the storyline has been heating up as Nick finds it increasingly difficult to keep his identity hidden from the people closest to him. It looks like he may have to let Juliette in on the secret in this week’s season finale.

In a recent phone conversation, stars David Giuntoli (Nick Burkhardt) and Russell Hornsby (Hank Griffin) were fairly tight-lipped, but they said the episode will definitely leave viewers wondering what’s in store for next season.

Lost Girl 2.5 Review: "BrotherFae of the Wolves"

By John Keegan and Paul Pearson

Lost-Girl-Season-2-thumbIt was always going to be tough to top last episode's fantastic installment, but "BrotherFae of the Wolves" doesn't seem to be trying that hard. This Dyson-centric episode should've been a perfect opportunity to explore the angst and the shift in status quo that this character has gone through over the past few episodes, and yet it's glossed over in favour of weak plots that recall the lesser aspects of other genre shows.

Person of Interest 1.22 Review: "No Good Deed"

By John Keegan and Edmund Boys

person_of_interest_iconWhen a show starts hitting its stride, you surrender yourself to the narrative, confident that wherever the writers choose to take you will be entertaining, compelling, and satisfying. At one time in television history, it was rare for a show to achieve this in its freshman season. But, in recent years, as producers have been given more freedom, especially on cable, the phenomenon of the show fully-formed at birth has sprung onto our screens. While I’ve always felt the auteur theory is an insult to the collaborative nature of filming stories, there is no doubt that the singular visions of Matthew Weiner or Vince Gilligan shape “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad.”

Berry & Bruni Talk "Ghost Hunters" & Grant Wilson's Departure

By Christiane Elin

Amy Bruni & Adam BerryIt seems as if you can't think of the term, "ghost hunters" without envisioning the investigating duo from Ghost Hunters, Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson. Lead Investigator/Producer/TAPS Co-founder, Grant Wilson's last investigation airs tonight on Syfy and marks the end of the ghost hunting duo. SciFi Vision was able to chat with Ghost Hunters TAPS Case Manager, Amy Bruni, and Investigator, Adam Berry, about their reaction to Grant leaving and how the team is adjusting since his departure.

Adam Berry says the news of Grant's departure came from out of the blue and he had no idea. Adam is the newest addition to the Ghost Hunters team with two seasons under his belt. Adam felt it was extremely heart wrenching to watch fellow team members Amy Bruni, Steve Gonsalves, Britt Griffith, and Dave Tango, who have known Grant for years, react to the news. Grant's leaving hit the team hard because the Ghost Hunters TAPS team is one huge family.

The Borgias 2.6 Review: "Day of Ashes"

By John Keegan

borgias_iconSavonarola takes the center stage as a major adversary to Rodrigo Borgia in this episode, and it is some of the most gripping material yet. Savonarola subscribes to a brand of religiosity that borders on the sadistic, as various followers are prompted to scourge themselves publicly, while others are pressed into religious vocation. Given the state of Italy at the time, of course, one might have indeed felt that the time of repentance was at hand.

Touch 1.9 Review: "Music of the Spheres"

By John Keegan

touch_tv_show_iconI've been very critical of "Touch", which I find to be a very poorly written show masking its lack of consistency behind its premise. Nothing I've seen so far has changed that opinion; however, I must admit that when the writers actually pay attention and make all the story elements intersect in logical ways, it makes for a less cloying episode.

Mad Men 5.9 Review: "Dark Shadows"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

mad_menI've been accused in the past of judging Betty Francis too harshly on a couple of episodes on this show. I take that criticism to heart and as such, I've tried to look at Betty's character objectively. She makes her return here after the events of "Tea Leaves" and I'm still unsure of her place in the whole narrative.

Eureka 5.5 Review: "Jack of All Trades"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

eurekasignicon"Body swapping episode". The mere thought of the concept sends shivers down my spine. And these are not shivers of excitement, but of dread. Often, I wonder if there's been some sort of edict set down by the gods of television, decreeing that all sci-fi shows must, at some point, do a body-swap episode. It's one of the most popularly-utilized tropes in sci-fi television, but not only am I sick and tired of it, I'm not convinced that it ever really worked. Maybe there are rare exceptions were uncannily good acting results in a truly convincing body-swap, but in almost every case, it's impossible to see the exercise as anything other than the actors mimicking each other, to the best of their abilities. Suspension of disbelief just isn't there.
