SciFi Vision - Where Fiction and Reality Meet

A Strange, Emotional Week on "The Voice"

The VoiceBy Karen Moul

The Voice’s first two battle rounds brought few surprises as the coaches sought to whittle their teams by pairing similar vocalists. It’s probably an effective strategy as it ensures that the team brings a variety of strengths and styles to the live rounds, but it’s not always interesting television.

Last week, however, Cee Lo shook things up with the strangest pairing of the past two seasons: soft and sultry Erin Mitchell took on the hard-rocking Shields Brothers in a performance that Adam Levine called just plain “weird.”

After the show, Erin agreed that it was a difficult pairing. “I think it was sort of like worst-case scenario for someone who has a voice like mine,” she told Scifi Vision.

The tension was evident as Erin and the Sheildses tried to find a way to work together and pull together a coherent duet. The boys toned it down a bit and Erin pumped up the volume, but their differences went beyond loud vs. quiet. It was a clash of styles and personalities that was bizarre and kind of cool at the same time.

When it was all over, Erin summed it up: “If you had put Nora Jones against AC/DC, that's what you would come up with.”

After the show, Scifi Vision spoke to the battle winners in their weekly confenrece call with digital media outlets.

The Voice airs Mondays at 8 pm on NBC.

Wilmer Valderrama and Steve Harris Talk "Awake"

By Jamie Ruby

Wilmer Valderrama and Steve HarrisThe new NBC series Awake follows the life of Detective Michael Britten, played by Jason Isaacs, who was recently in a car accident where either his wife Hannah or his son Rex died, and now lives in two realities. In one (the green reality), his son survived. When he wakes up in the other (the red reality) Hannah is alive. The problem is, he doesn't know which is real and which is a dream.

In each reality Detective Britten works with a different partner. In the green reality, he is still working with his long time partner, Detective Isaiah "Bird" Freeman, played Steve Harris. In the red reality Bird has been reassigned and Detective Efrem Vega, played by Wilmer Valderrama, has been partnered with Britten, most likely to keep an eye on him and his mental state.

Britten often gets clues from a case in one reality that can help him to get a unique perspective and solve a case in the other. Both partners question how he gets his hunches, however, Bird is more likely to accept it because he has known Britten for so long.

Wilmer Valderrama and Steve Harris recently talked to the digital media about working on the new unique series.

The Good Wife 3.18 Review: "Gloves Come Off"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

thegoodwife-iconI enjoyed this episode for its steady, well-paced flow between a myriad of scenes. "The Good Wife" tends to do this on a regular basis, but here, there seemed to be a confidence emanating from the material that was particularly standout. The overall story may not draw much interest, as Lockhart and Associates argue first over a wrongful death lawsuit, then brain trauma from sports injuries, but there is enough on the fringes to compensate for that. There's so much happening in the space of an hour that it's hard to keep track.

The River 1.8 Review: "Row, Row, Row Your Boat"

By John Keegan

the-river-icon“The River” turned out to be a show that was much better than it had any business being, given the questionable nature of the production style and the pedigree of the production staff. When the story was less about vague supernatural threats, and more about the characters, it improved tremendously. Even so, it’s such an uneven production that I had no idea what to expect from the finale.

The Walking Dead 2.13 Review: "Beside the Dying Fire"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

The-Walking-Dead-iconThere was never any doubt that Hershel's farm would eventually fall to an outside threat, but it was a bit of a surprise that that outside threat ended up being the Walkers. For a while there, I had started to fully expect that Randall's group would be the ones to descend on the farm. In some ways, that might have been more interesting. But I suppose the zombie threat has been a bit underplayed this season, so it makes sense to bring them back in full force to cap off the season.

Being Human (US) 2.10 Review: "Dream Reaper"

By John Keegan

Being-Human-icon-being-human-us-17425916-150-150Talk about bad timing. Sally’s possession by her own Reaper persona takes place at the worst possible time, as Josh is about to turn during the full moon and Aidan needs a fix of human blood. For Sally’s part, she has fallen into that beloved trope of an internal fantasy world, as the Reaper personality seeks to keep her Sally personality happy and distracted.

Lost Girl 1.10 Review: "The Mourning After"

By John Keegan and Paul Pearson

Lost-Girl-Season-2-thumbThe formula of "Lost Girl" is starting to show the tell-tale signs of wear and tear around the edges, in that way most shows do by the time they hit double digits. Nonetheless, the writers are still good at breathing life into things and there's plenty of character and mythology ground to be covered, as "The Mourning After" demonstrates aptly by following up on the most intriguing threads of previous stories.

Awake 1.3 Review: "Guilty"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

awakereviewiconIf not for the emotional components that hooked viewers, this latest episode of "Awake" would be a little ordinary. I mean, I understand giving a backstory for Michael to connect to Rex's abduction, but the resolution is too obvious. If you didn't see that it was his former partner who was behind everything, then you haven't been watching many police procedurals over the years.
