About Bryan Hardbarger

As a creative designer for over 27 years, Bryan has always been a Science Fiction fanboy. Bryan started with re-runs of the original Star Trek, Buck Rogers in the 24th Century, Doctor Who (The Tom Baker Years) Space 1999, the original Battlestar Gallactica, and so many others. Bryan turned to writing about his favorite genre in his own blog as a pastime. Using Twitter as a vehicle for his obsession with Science Fiction, he created a name for himself on Twitter as Nyrhalahotep, the name of a deity from the H.P. Lovecraft mythos. Using his creative design business to fund his love for Sci-Fi, Bryan continues to build a faithful following of fellow geeks. Bryan considers himself incredibly fortunate to have found the Geek love of his life, and then married her! These days, Bryan spends his time in his home based office with his lovely Wife and two fantastic children.

  • ‘Haven: Sparks and Recreation’ – Recap

    Posted Saturday, August 6th, 2011 06:45 pm GMT -4 by
    I caught the opening scene last week on the SyFy Channels web site, and may I say, it was an electrifying intro. Sorry about that, I know it’s a painfully obvious and just plain bad joke – I simply could not let it go. Obviously the Mayor of ‘Haven’ is one of those...

  • ‘Torchwood: Miracle Day, Escape to L. A.’ – Recap

    Posted Saturday, July 30th, 2011 03:26 pm GMT -4 by
    Things are heating up for ‘Torchwood’ and it appears as if what is now being called “Classic Torchwood” (a phrase apparently started here on ScienceFiction.com folks!) is beginning to emerge. I know, for all the amazing comments on my recent posts, that...
  • ‘Haven: Love Machine’ – Recap

    Posted Saturday, July 30th, 2011 12:00 pm GMT -4 by
    There is constant growth of characters in a television series and ‘Haven’ does not deviate from this fact, far from it. Emily Rose as Audrey Parker has found herself in her character. She grows as an actress with every episode, and in doing so creates relationships...

    It is not uncommon, especially in the science fiction realm, for fans of certain movies to show up at the theater in full costume portraying their favorite character or joining a LARP group in their area to act out scenes in real life with fellow role players. Now imagine yourself...
  • ‘Warehouse 13: Love Sick’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, July 26th, 2011 11:00 am GMT -4 by
    This is, quite possibly, one of the Warehouse’s funniest episodes to date. While still in the afterglow of Eureka, I found myself sobering up with a disheartening hospital scene where it appears yet another artifact has claimed a life. In the tradition of Warehouse 13, however,...
  • ‘Haven: Fear And Loathing’ – Recap

    Posted Saturday, July 23rd, 2011 06:00 pm GMT -4 by

  • ‘Torchwood: Miracle Day, Dead of Night’ – Recap

    Posted Saturday, July 23rd, 2011 03:00 pm GMT -4 by
    As I suspected, the first couple of episodes took the time to flesh out the initial premise of the season. This takes time to set up the players, protagonists, antagonists, as well as those to come. ‘Dead of Night’ is a clear indication that the real “Torchwood’...
