Getting It Straight from Staite: Jewel Staite Talks About Being On Board for Stargate Atlantis’ Fourth Season

Jewel Staite Stargate Atlantis EclipseMagazine.com Interview

“She’s a bit of a scaredy cat. She’s not very good in dire or violent situations. She scares easily, which is not such a good thing when you’re in the world of Atlantis. She’s really great under pressure though. I think that’s when she’s at her best, especially when she’s in her element; anything to do with medicine or a complicated medical situation she’s just there. She’s just on. She’s very, very, very smart and very focused.” Continue reading Getting It Straight from Staite: Jewel Staite Talks About Being On Board for Stargate Atlantis’ Fourth Season

The Tellybox: Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen…Oh yes he is!

BBC Robin Hood Review, EclipseMagazine.com Television

It must have seemed like such a good idea, putting a contemporary spin on an old favourite. Over the years the legend of Robin Hood has provided a rich seam for TV and movies. Errol Flynn, Kevin Kostner and Douglas Fairbanks have all played the green-tight-wearing philanthropist and it was entirely unsurprising that the BBC, after the success of their updated Doctor Who, would want to have a go at re-imagining the Robin Hood stories.

Battlestar Galactica: Razor, is Amazing, – SO SAY WE ALL! Mostly Spoiler Free Review by Michelle Alexandria

Battlestar Galactica Razor Review - EclipseMagazine.com Television

When I went to the mailbox earlier this week there was a little surprise in my box namely a Sci-Fi screener for Battlestar Galactica: Razor. I generally do not review Sci-Fi Channel screeners because I get them so early in the process that the shows are usually incomplete, they are good for background information but not really to review. Razor was the first screener I received from them that was actually complete and wow, did I like this movie. I’m ready for the next season of BSG.

The Boondocks: Adult Swim’s Edgiest Series Returns!

The Boondocks EclipseMagaine.com TV Review

When the second season of The Boondocks premieres tonight [Adult Swim, 11:30/10:30C], there will be a few cosmetic changes. The animation is noticeably improved and the sound is better. What hasn’t changed is the way that stories written over a year ago will still seem as if they were ripped from today’s headlines.

Welcome to the Tellybox! by Carole Gordon

 

                                                Tellybox

Welcome to the Tellybox – the blog where I will chat about the very best of British telly, as well as the not-so-good and sometimes the downright nasty. So, you can expect lots of meanderings about the fabulous Doctor Who, the intermittently fabulous Torchwood, the yeah-okay-anachronistic-but-has-that-hottie-Richard-Armitage-in-it Robin Hood, and the one I’m still not sure about, Primeval. Maybe because the title is spelt wrong.

Eureka’s Season Ender is Satisfying. Michelle Alexandria’s Review.

Eureka’s Season Ender is Satisfying. Michelle Alexandria’s EclipseMagazine.com TV Review.

This has been a year of discovery for me and one of those finds has been the quirky Sci-Fi show Eureka. When I met the cast at their Vancouver set, I had no clue what the show was about or even what I was looking at. And it seemed like 75 percent of the assembled press were in the same boat. But the Q and A with the cast really won everyone over and their sets truly were amazing. It was clear that the Sci-Fi Channel believed in this show and was going to give it time to find its audience.
