Happy 4th Of July 2019

wallpaper_111_2484x2000_smallbarbieTo Kathryn and all KM UK’s friends in the US, we say Happy 4th of July.

Congratulations to the USA on reaching another 4th of July.  I hear you having a parade this year.  Sounds like lots of fun.  Can’t believe you didn’t think of doing that at some point before in the last 243 years.  Perhaps throw in a firework or two.  But don’t actually throw them, that’s dangerous.  Keep your pets indoors too, they can get scared by all the noise.

The UK is rapidly, and by rapidly I mean mind-numbingly slowly, heading towards it own independence day.  Appropriately enough, we’re trying to make it the 31st of October, aka Halloween.  Wish us luck.  Many of would probably try and stay with you guys instead but we understand conditions are a bit cramped at the moment.

smallbarbie‘s image always forms the centrepiece of our 4th of July post.  It is just one, albeit a particular find example of, fan art created by our viewers especially for this site.  Find it and many, many other in our Fan Art Gallery. If you would like to add an image please contact me.

Reverie S01E05 – Altum Somnum Full HD Screencaps

reverie_s01e05_1080p_213We don’t often blow our own trumpet here on KM UK but this has to be one the best updates we’ve had.

Episode 5 of Reverie, ‘Altum Somnum’ (which means ‘deep sleep’), brought us a significant amount of Kathryn’s Monica Shaw.  There’s been a bombing (you may recognise the building they use from a certain other show popular around these parts) and Monica wants to use the mind-entering VR tech to question a possible witness to the events who is in a coma (hence ‘deep sleep’).  During this process Monica starts to see the others as a team that can achieve much as a group, and not just individuals good at specific things.

As part of the KM UK Summer Of HD, not only do we have some, if I say so myself, some very high quality new HD (1080p) screencaps, but also vastly bigger versions of all five promo photos issued for this episode.  We’re talking quadruple the pixel count in most cases!  Rather than replace the existing photos the new ones are added as extras so you can still choose the smaller ones if that’s easier.

Over 200 new HD (1080p) screencaps are HERE and the promo photos are HERE in the KM UK Gallery.

Reverie S01E04 – Blue Is The Coldest Color Full HD Screencaps

reverie_s01e04_1080p_016Hopefully you noticed that last week there was no new entry in KM UK’s Summer Of HD for Reverie‘s 3rd episode.  You did notice, right?

Unfortunately Kathryn wasn’t in ‘No More Mr Nice Guy’, but, as we got to see in ‘Blue Is The Coldest Color’, there is something of Miss Nice Lady in Monica Shaw.

The story in this one was an interesting twist on the normal.  The protagonist is crippled by anxieties and can’t leave his house.  He’s using a stolen Onira Tech (the VR company the show is set around) implant so he can immerse himself in worlds of his own making.  The one highlight of his real life is seeing the little girl and her mother from next door.  They are sort of friends, despite his issues.  Poor guy right?  But he’s using the VR to try and do a good thing to help the little girl, who it turns out needs unobtainable medicine.  The guy isn’t using the tech to escape his own existence but to over come debilitating fears and to help someone else.

How can Sarah Shahi’s Mara and the team not help him?  Even DoD hardcase Monica can see a little way past possible new money making uses for the VR to the good it can do.

As well as the expected new set of full HD (1080p) screencaps from episode 4 of Reverie that are now in the KM UK Gallery, there are also improved sized versions of the two promotional photos (see below). Apart from the limited number, what’s not to like about that?

Reverie S01E02 – Bond. Jane Bond Full HD Screencaps

reverie_s01e02_1080p_043Week of two of KM UK’s Summer Of HD 2019 brings us predictably enough to episode 2 of the series Reverie.

Kathryn as Monica Shaw made a similarly brief appearance as in part one but she was less enigmatic.  Totally by chance, you understand ,-) Monica and Charlie (Dennis Haysbert) bump into Mara (Sarah Shahi).  You get the impression that very little happens in Monica’s world that isn’t in her control.

As well as helping to prop up the infrastructure (see above) we also get a wonderful reprise of the sunshine that is Kathryn’s smile (see below left).

No new/updated promo photos this time but we do have a new set of full HD (1080p) the episode titled ‘Bond. Jane Bond’ in the KM UK the Gallery.

Reverie S01E01 – Apertus Full HD Screencaps

reverie_s01e01_1080p_018Apertus Summerus HDus  :-)

I’m sure the Harry Potter fans amongst you can do a lot better than me.

A cliché it may be but starting at the beginning just feels so right.  ‘Apertus’ was the name of the first episode of the far too short-lived NBC sci-fi-ish VR-based drama Reverie.

The show starred Sarah Shahi (Person Of Interest) as an ex-hostage negotiator brought into a virtual reality tech company to help with some problem customers.  She’s not there to sort out a compensation deal or write an NDA.  No, Mara needs all her persuasiveness and empathy to encourage VR users so caught-up in the fantasy world they’ve created for themselves to leave.  Their reasons are varied and complex so it is up to Mara and other members of the team to do the detective work IRL and in VR.

Kathryn’s Monica Shaw works for the Department Of Defence, not surprisingly interested in the ability to put people in life-like VR, has her own agendas, and involved herself in the company.

We didn’t get to see much of Kathryn in this opening episode but got to see that wonderful smile in the short time we had in her company.  A much missed highlight of any show.

Now available in the KM UK the Gallery is a new collection of full HD (1080p) screencaps from ‘Apertus’.
