I just checked the characters of the episode on the ever-faithful IMDB... and apparently there's a Wellesley family involved in the plot. Now, perhaps I'm just reading too much into things, but if you pronounce that name a wee bit on the fast side, what do you get? Wesley, as in Crusher, from TNG. I...

Just a quick post to tell you that next monday's Castle is the one to watch for sci-fi fans, as it is directed by none other than Commander William Riker. Yep. And according to Nathan's twitter account a few weeks back: Johnathan Frakes is directing. Yesterday, he called me Number One. My heart made...

Well, apparently someone was kind enough to upload the sequence in question.

And the dialoguebetween Castle and daughter! Priceless... Gotta love the show's writers.

Cheers,

Ai yah... The openin' sequence was all sorts of awesome. 'Twas bang-up shiny, and that's bein' full truthsome. Gorramit, but I miss my Mal somethin' fierce, and I'm wishin' they might conjure that puttin' forward scratch to finance another wave could just be peachy. *sighs* Other than that, well, th...

Just a wee update... There has been some good news for Castle, as ABC has picked it up for a full season. That means nine more episodes of Nathan Fillion goodness, which is altogether great. I also have it on rather good authority that this week's episode (that is, running tomorrow), about Halloween...

Just a wee link... to Diamond Sky Productions where Carolyn Porco, science adviser to the movie production and leader of the science imaging team of the Cassini mission, has made available high-resolution images of the Enterprise rising off Titan. For those of you in quest of fine Star Trek wallpape...

Just a friendly reminder... Castle's season premiere airs on next monday, Sept. 21 at 10PM on the usual channel, that is ABC. As last year, it's straight after the ever-popular Dancing With The Stars. I can but hope it's a sign that the studio's firmly behind the series, and that it's here to stay. ...

In my previous review I said: As a SF/Fantasy fan, I also have to say that I liked the references to another great space saga. One young boy's stubborn affirmation of self, his reluctance to embark on his life journey, his quest to live up to his father's ghost, his interlude on an ice planet, his f...

New York Times: Religion and Science in Angels and Demons

Today, I found a very interesting essay in the New York Times, about the religion-science conflict in the latest cinematic adaptation of Dan Brown's books. It rises some pretty intriguing concepts, and, while it does not strictly speaks of SF/Fantasy besides a passing mention, I think that you'll fi...

Out of curiosity, I went on J.J. Abrams' IMDB page. There is an "Untitled Star Trek Sequel" slated for 2011. If it indeed gets made, it'll be interesting to see how they handle the future adventures of the Enterprise and her crew...

Cheers,

I agree that the chemistry between Castle and Beckett was a little bit off on that episode. But as it was the season finale, ABC probably wanted to pack the 45 minutes with enough suspense to maintain the watchers' interest through the summer. So perhaps the interaction between the two leads wasn't ...

Star Trek or a neophyte's introduction to the Alpha Quadrant Stardate 20095.20 I have just come home from watching the latest (or should I say the earliest?) installment of the adventures of the NCC-1701, better known as the USS Enterprise, and her crew. It has been, all matters considered, a rather...

I'm not a huge TV watcher, so I don't really know much about Moonlighting. I can only judge Castle on its own, and so far it's been good. To tell the truth, I firstly got interested in the show when I saw the previews and went: "Oh! Nathan Fillion! That's got to be something..." Athena, I ...

Castle

Well, I know it's not strictly SF or Fantasy, but... I thought I'd mention that Nathan Fillion (of Firefly/Serenity fame, if you didn't know already) is back and kicking in a new show named Castle, airing on ABC monday nights. In a nutshell, Richard "Rick" Castle (Fillion) is an author fac...
