Andromeda: People: Seamus Harper

Yes I know, he’s supposed to be a sort of ships caretaker and ‘fix-it’ man, but lets face it, Mr FixitHarper is the closest thing that Andromeda has to a Ships Engineer. He’s played wonderfully by Gordon Michael Woolvett.

Harper isn’t yer average Ships Engineer, he’s the Andromeda equivalent of MacGyver. If a Job needs doing give it to someone else – unless that is, yer all gonna die anyway!. Maybe that’s a little harsh, but this geezer is a total plonker!

He’s also something of a genius when it comes to fixing computerized equipment. His unorthodox methods however, can be annoying to some of the other crewmembers.

If you were to meet Harper in a pub he would be drunk (and stoned probably). As he chatted to a young girl at the bar, you would wonder why the left side of his face was bright red. Moments later you would see the young lady give him a very hard slap (again).

He seems to get o­n pretty well with Trance however. 'Come o­n... show us yer tail'The two of them have a flirty teenage innocence sort of a relationship, he would like nothing better than to stroke her tail – even if he is a total git! (and I’m not just saying that because I’m jealous ok!).

Personally I think Harper is a complete jerk, but I guess I’m in the minority. His childish comment, “We rule!” as the Eureka Maru managed to pull the stricken Andromeda from the Black Hole almost made me throw my beer can at the TV.

However, in his defense, Harper is the most light hearted of the crewmembers. He always seems to have some witty comment even when things look at their most desperate.

Andromeda: S02E10: The Prince

He has a marvelous ability to fabricate all sorts of stuff, from repairs to the ship, to doomsday bombs, to ….well… naked avatars of sentient computers.

He was raised o­n a planet where the atmosphere was very poor and his lungs and respiratory system are not very healthy. He seems to suffer medical problems more than the rest of the crew and is sensitive to atmospheric changes.

Gordon Michael Woolvett

Gordon was born in Hamilton, o­ntario in Canada in 1970. He has had a number of film appearances (most notably as David in Bride of Chucky) and is the brother of the geezer who played Lt. Duggan in ‘Dead Presidents’ (Jaimz Woolvet).

The Witcher Episode 7 Review - Before a Fall

In this Witcher Episode we noticed that “Before a Fall” was certainly less trivial in its portrayal without Jaskier. Indeed, the start of the war between Cintra and Nilfgaard and sending a group of mages face an army (with their own fanatically devout religious mages willing to die for their cause) with the realisation and sense of destiny playing on Geralt to find and protect Ciri adds a level of story depth with a different entertainment value that the excellent big character development scenes. In this episode, the narrative was definitely more focused on the story.

Episode Review: Picard meets Dahj after she is attacked by Romulan assassins and something 'activates' within her and she gets an image of Picard in her mind. She seeks him out to see if he can help explain what is happening to her. Picard travels to the Daystrom Institute in Okinawa and meets with Dr. Agnes Jurati, who reveals Dahj may be Data's daughter through an experimental procedure known as fractal neuronic cloning – meaning she is an android with an organic body but a positronic brain. She goes on to say that this activity results in twins.

The Witcher S01E06 Episode Review - Rare Species

This Witcher Episode Review is about as close to a typical Geralt of Rivia story as you can get - that is, a monster and a dilemma. It also lets us see one of the classic fantasy genre monsters of all time - dragons!  There was much less gratuitous in this episode which was a shame, but it was certainly good fun to watch.  The graphics were really good.  Ok, not as good as the amazing dragons in Game of Thrones, but definitely better than the Kikimora from the first episode. Though to be honest, I thought the Kikimora graphics were pretty good too.
