SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

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.

Jenny McCarthyLove in the Wild returns to NBC on June 7 with a new location, a new crop of singles, and a new host: Jenny McCarthy. The former “Singled Out” star is taking charge of 14 young men and women looking for love in the Dominican Republic.

The format is similar to last season, with the contestants subjected to physical challenges such as jumping off cliffs, crossing waterfalls, and generally risking their lives in quest to find true love. McCarthy had a ball filming the show, but in a recent conversation she confessed she was a bit hesitant when NBC first offered her the role.

Grimm 1.21 Review: "Big Feet"

By John Keegan

Grimm-2Many of my annoyances with "Grimm" have centered around the too-obvious construction of the season arc. Relatively early in the season, it was clear that the writers were going to toss up artificial barriers to ensure that Hank and Juliette didn't suspect the existence of the Wesen until the season finale. This has led, especially in Juliette's case, to some character assassination, as some have termed it.

Game of Thrones 2.7 Review: "A Man Without Honor"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

Game_of_Thrones_iconIt's almost hard to believe, but there are only three episodes remaining in the season. By this point in the first season, King Robert had died, Joffrey had taken the throne, and Ned was betrayed and taken prisoner. It's not quite as clear, now, that we're hurtling toward climactic events, but one might suspect that this is all building up to a battle for King's Landing. I've just been surprised to find that this show has once again seemingly failed to conform to my expectations for how a serialized drama would be structured. Season 1 turned out to be more of a prologue. And season 2, which has been surprisingly low-key, could so far be described as an extension of the prologue.
