First Look: Arrow Season 3 Trailer

Arrow fans at San Diego Comic Con got their first sneak peek of season 3 during a panel session on Friday.

The first half of the trailer is a recap of Oliver’s journey through season 2 before new clips including Hong Kong Flashbacks, the introduction of Brandon Routh’s character Roy Palmer and the first official dinner date between Oliver and Felicity which seems like it doesnt exactly go to plan.

One piece of news from the panel that may not come as a pleasant surprise to fans is that Exec Producer Andrew Kreisberg mentioned Joss Whedon as a reference point for how to take happiness away from characters.

Review: Doctor Who. 10th Doctor #1 (Titan Comics)

Review: Kate @ All That Geek.

I was very excited to learn there would be new 10th Doctor adventures coming our way this July and Titan Comics haven’t disappointed.

Gabriella Gonzalez is stuck in a dead-end job in her family’s New York Laundromat, dreaming of college and bigger, better and brighter things. So when a strange man with an even stranger big blue box barges into her life on the eve of the Day of the Dead celebrations – talking about an infestation of psychic aliens – she seizes her chance for adventure with both hands.

After Donna’s tragic exit, the Doctor thought he was done with new companions. But Gabby Gonzalez is going to prove him wrong… if she survives the night!

A lot of the first issue tends to set up our new companions background, with minimal input from The Doctor, but its still an enjoyable enough read. Gabriella ticks all the boxes as a companion, so I am looking forward to starting this journey with her.

What we do get to see of the Doctor is exactly what you’d expect from an episode. Nick Abadzis captured the 10th Doctors voice well, and even threw in one of his quirky gadgets.

The mystery slowly builds throughout the story, coming to an exciting climax as The Doctor jumps in to save the day – hopefully.

The artwork is crisp and colourful, and really attracts the readers attention. The Doctor actually looks like The Doctor, which is always my one gripe with TV-to-comics, artists interpreting a well known character so much it barely looks recognisable.

Overall, I think Doctor Who fans will enjoy this latest installment to the Who world and even those who have never read comics before will enjoy the journey too.

First Look: Colton Haynes as Arsenal in Arrow.

After being injected with Mirakuru and coming out the other side relatively unscathed, EW reports that Roy will become a fully fledged member of team Arrow and his new rocking outfit will make a debut in the first episode.

RHWhat do you think of Roy’s new red hoodie?

Music Monday: The Voice Australia

Tonight Australia finds out its 2014 Winner of The Voice. This is the first time I’ve watched the show from the auditions to the finals and it reminded me why I love and loathe reality singing contests. Love because Australia has so much unknown talent out there and this is a way we get to see it when we normally wouldn’t. On the flip side, I loathe it because I always get invested in someone who ends up getting eliminated way too early.

My initial favourite was the amazing Matthew Garwood who got eliminated in the battle rounds (side note, I find that part of the competition a little weird) but tonight I am backing Australia’s next rock god Frank Lakoudis. Giving awesome renditions of some of the best classic rock songs, we need someone like him on the Australian music charts.

Review: The X-Files Year Zero #1

Review: Kate @ All That Geek.

When I first heard about The X Files Year Zero, a new five-part series delving into the beginning of the X-files, I was sceptical. As a long time fan, I remember the less than popular episode from season five “Travelers” and feared this comic may venture into the same tedious territory. However, I was happy to be proven wrong and found on the pages of issue #1 an interesting story that had me anticipating issue #2.

In “The X-Files: Year Zero” a blue-collar worker from New Jersey passes prophetic messages to the FBI from a mysterious “Mr. Zero.” Mulder is convinced it is the same otherworldly entity that contacted the FBI through a suburban housewife in the 1940s. This similarly named “Mr. Xero” pointed the FBI toward many unusual cases, leading to the establishment of the X-Files!  Continue reading
