Access is Power

Snowpiercer: Access is Power

Season 1, Episode 3: " Access Is Power "

The real detective work kicks in on Snowpiercer Season 1 Episode 3, but there are a few key questions that have been left unasked by the world's only homicide detective. The main one being: WHO was the first murder victim? Shouldn't that have been one of the first things discussed? How might Sean Wise be similar to the first victim? Why was the murderer targeting (and castrating)...

Are You Leading or Am I?

Killing Eve: Are You Leading or Am I?

Season 3, Episode 8: " Are You Leading or Am I? "

The season finale of Killing Eve Season 3 encapsulated so much of what makes Killing Eve unlike any other show on the air. On Killing Eve Season 3 Episode 8, we progressed further than ever before in the relationship between Villanelle and Eve, while discovering what happened to Kenny in his final moments. Everyone's on edge. These characters have always been hard to predict, bu...

City of Angels Season 1 Episode 6 Review

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels: City of Angels Season 1 Episode 6 Review

Season 1, Episode 6: " How It Is With Brothers "

It's hard to see how Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Season 1 Episode 6 was meant to be seen as a cohesive script. Perhaps, it could be argued that it has a unifying theme of turning points. Maybe, if you squint really hard, there is a sense of setting up a finale. After all, there are only two episodes left in the season, and one would assume the finale will be something grand an...

Rebellion Dogs

Hightown: Rebellion Dogs

Season 1, Episode 3: " Rebellion Dogs "

That was a nice change of pace.  Hightown Season 1 Episode 3 was bursting at the seams with rich storylines, and I hate to admit it, but I'm starting to warm to Jackie.  Monica Raymund is clearly relishing playing this character, and it shows in her performances every single episode. My main problem with Jackie is that she's been manipulative towards everyone in her circle. 

Grand Final

RuPaul's Drag Race: Grand Final

Season 12, Episode 14: " Grand Finale "

The queens came, they conquered, and now one has walked away with the crown! Despite social-distancing across the country, the final three lipsynced virtually head-to-head on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 12 Episode 14. No live audience to cheer them on; only green screens and filters to support their performances. This finale will go down in the record books as a first for reality T...

Not One of The Cool Kids

Days of our Lives: Not One of The Cool Kids

Season 55, Episode 177: " Friday May 29, 2020 "

The rest of Salem needs to take lessons from the way Justin and Steve are handling their rivalry over Kayla. Sure, both of these men have had their moments. Justin's insecurity and Steve's boneheaded decision to give up because Justin was never turned into a bad guy were low points. But on the whole, this is a story about adults trying to do the best thing. Some other people's pr...

Council of Dads: Tradition

Season 1, Episode 5: " Tradition! "

On Council of Dads Season 1 Episode 5, the Perrys celebrate the holidays without Scott for the first time.  From Halloween to Christmas, their traditions are changing. As Larry said, they have to figure out their new traditions now that the tradition-keeper is gone.  But what does that look like? On Halloween, not much changed for the Perry family. They still ...

The Straw That Broke the Camel's Back

In The Dark: The Straw That Broke the Camel's Back

Season 2, Episode 7: " The Straw That Broke the Camel's Back "

Murphy just mucked it up, and Darnell may pay the price for it. Two of the biggest takeaways from In The Dark Season 2 Episode 7, is that Max is Murphy's kryptonite, and she will bring everyone and everything down around her to keep him safe, and Ben was a problem, and somebody had to deal with him. We're trudging along and over halfway through the season, but there's no telling ...

Existential Ennui

Blindspot: Existential Ennui

Season 5, Episode 3: " Existential Ennui "

Weller and company have got to put together the pieces faster before they all crack up. The stress of being on the run was getting to them all on Blindspot Season 5 Episode 3, except maybe Rich. And if Rich is the most stable member of a team, that squad is in big trouble. They certainly can't wait for Weitz to save them.  He's showing no sign of gro...

Wherever You Go

Burden of Truth: Wherever You Go

Season 3, Episode 2: " Wherever You Go "

On Burden of Truth Season 3 Episode 2, Joanna's attempt to get Kodie's kids back does not go well. Joanna is wracking up failures, and she is not happy about it. Plus, this one is personal (though we still don't know why). The writers are not giving us much to go on for the history between Joanna and Kodie. There is a story there. We get tiny flashbacks that are hints of more, b...

The Garden

The 100: The Garden

Season 7, Episode 2: " The Garden "

Going back to where it all started doesn't mean you will end up in the same place, but there's also no way to escape it. At least if you're in Skyring. It is safe to say that history will always have a way of repeating itself.  During The 100 Season 7 Episode 2, the story explored the time Octavia and Diyoza spent on Skyring after they went into the Anomaly las...


Mrs. America: Reagan

Season 1, Episode 9: " Reagan "

Everything came to a hilt on Mrs. America Season 1 Episode 9. While the episode was not as epic as a finale usually is, "Reagan," was still satisfying, and gave us some closure. Particularly with Alice's arc, although there were a few storylines that left us with unanswered questions. Alice's character revolutionized when she finally stood up to Phyllis. She was...

The One Where We're Trapped on TV

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: The One Where We're Trapped on TV

Season 5, Episode 13: " I Am Legends "

The Legends have done it again. Or should I say the writers, producers, and director, as DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Episode 13 was one of the finest hours of the Arrowverse shows, maybe even one of the best of any show we have seen this year? It was a delightful combination of humor, action, meta, shocking twists, and standout character moments that have all come to be kno...


Stargirl: S.T.R.I.P.E.

Season 1, Episode 2: " S.T.R.I.P.E. "

It may not have been the most action-packed episode, but viewers did get the general idea of the show's direction by the end of the Stargirl Season 1 Episode 2. For the remainder of Stargirl Season 1, it looks like Courtney and Pat will track down the members of the Injustice Society of America and bring them to, well, justice. What is still unclear is who will join them in the...
