Continuing our coverage of the sci-fi television show Falling Skies, last night’s episode Prisoner of War was good but a little slow. The big theme in the episode was the harnesses (the alien technology that renders children into slave laborers) and the new doctor who can hopefully remove them from the kids without killing them. Dr. Michael Harris is played by actor Steven Weber who you might recognize from the old tv show Wings or from the classic Vietnam war movie Hamburger Hill. I really liked Weber’s performance in Hamburger Hill, unfortunately his character Dr. Harris isn’t the most likable sort. He’s a pessimist and as a doctor he doesn’t show the most care and concern for his patients. Regardless he did well with the part and it’ll be interesting to see what they do with the character in future episodes. Continue Reading Review: Falling Skies Episode 3 – Prisoner of War…

Some interesting publishing news has come out recently, and one of the big headlines in the last week is Pottermore. J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series, has recently opened up a site called Pottermore. Although the site kicked off with a circulation of rumors, it was soon revealed that the intention for Pottermore is that of an online store. On the surface that doesn’t sound all that interesting but one of the unique things about this store is that it will be the only place to buy Harry Potter eBooks. Up until now the Harry Potter books have been available only in print. The first up for release is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (UK) aka Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (US) which will go on sale in October in both digital audio format and eBook format. Unfortunately fans will have to wait awhile before Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets goes on sale as that won’t happen until early 2012. This also seems to indicate that it may take over a year for the whole series to be released in digital format. Continue Reading Pottermore Reveals the Future of the Publishing Industry…
