Almost immediately this week you can see where the consequences of the characters actions are leading.

After being rescued from the Leviathan camp last week, Dr Ivchenko is happy to give information to the SSR team and a relentless Agent Carter.  He happily imparts what he can, but also starts to lead a merry dance with everyone's heads, especially volunteering info about how well…

If I ever want a career change I need to steer clear of intelligence work. 

It's not the secrecy or the dangerous missions, it's the training that worries me. Too much kill or be killed for my liking. I mean how do secret sinister organizations end up with so many members, the attrition rates are horrendous?

Just look at James Bond for example - at the beginning of "From Russia…

Ah, those pesky men.

A quick list of some of the finest specimens...

Agent Thompson - self important,egotistical,smug, sexist, bigoted asshole.

Howard Stark - skirt-chasing, two-faced, arms dealing liar.

Edwin Jarvis - stuffy, useless in a fight and far too loyal to his master.

Agent Souza - Dogged, intelligent, sympathetic but looked down on because of his…

Welcome back one and all to the wonderful world of Westeros where I'm sure we're in for yet another season of the uplifting, light-hearted enterainment that we've come to associate with this fine show.

We kick off this year's sunny season opener with something slightly new. A flashback no less. We get a look back at a younger version of Cersei skipping merrily through the forest with…

Back in those long forgotten days the RPG was a pretty new concept and the Baldur’s Gate franchise was based on Dungeons and Dragons, which is a table top roleplaying game…

First up tonight are local Bristolian boys, Tax The Heat, who recieve a very warm welcome indeed from their home crowd. It's easy to see why. These nicely turned out gents boast a sound that is equal parts Rolling Stones, Presidents of the USA and Bad Company. They belt out blues heavy anthems for a full fourty-five minute set to rapturous applause in what has very quickly become a packed out…

In a slightly altered version of history, Hitler, almost at the point of defeat in the second World War, unleashes his deadliest weapon: Hordes of undead soldiers. That's the starting point for Rebellion's new co-operative shooter. Fans of Rebellion's Sniper Elite series will find a lot of the engine very familiar and may well have even played earlier versions of the first two segments of the…

Having reached the tender age of 21, The Sci Fi Ball (formerly Starfleet Ball) has now left its hometown in Bournemouth and headed out towards pastures new. In this case, the pasture is that of The Grand Harbour hotel. The Grand Harbor is an impressive venue on the seafront of Southampton overlooking the ferry ports which, for this weekend, would serve as a haven for hundreds of Sci Fi,…

It's still a man's world for Agent Carter.

And the men are getting the ladies into a spot of bother.

Firstly at the Griffith Hotel where a daring lothario gets a resident expelled, and then in the office when Peggy has to think on her feet and come up with a plan protect Jarvis from cracking under interrogation by Agent Thompson and Chief Dooley.

At the Griffith, this…

After an Explosive (and Implosive) start to the series, we now need to get down to business. The business of clearing Howard Stark's name. 

Being such a popular, millionaire philanthropist playboy, you'd think that it would be quite tricky to find anyone willing to stick the boot in. Surprisingly you would be wrong.
