Green Arrow & The Canaries

Arrow: Green Arrow & The Canaries

Season 8, Episode 9: " Green Arrow and the Canaries "

There was a lot on the line for this episode as it is intended to be the backdoor pilot for the new spinoff show, Green Arrow & the Canaries. Did it succeed in planting the curiousity to check out the latest addition to the Arrowverse should it get a full series order? Or did Arrow Season 8 Episode 9 fall flat with the high expectations set in place by its predecessor? ...

How Conrad Gets His Groove Back

The Resident: How Conrad Gets His Groove Back

Season 3, Episode 13: " How Conrad Gets His Groove Back "

He's back, baby! Conrad finessed his way back into Chastain as chief resident after bringing in a killer deal on The Resident Season 3 Episode 13, and it could not be sweeter. Seriously, everything about this hour was magic. To get ahead with the likes of Red Rock, you have to beat them at their own game. Who would have thought Conrad's dedication to h...

Alone Time

Prodigal Son: Alone Time

Season 1, Episode 11: " Alone Time "

How much trauma can one person endure? If Prodigal Son Season 1 Episode 11's nail-biter of a return is any indication, Malcolm will spend the rest of the season recovering from the physical and psychological turmoil John/Paul inflicted upon him. Bloody hell. Let the man rest! The hour was intense, frustrating, illuminating, surprising, exciting and somewhat disj...

One of Them Nights

All American: One of Them Nights

Season 2, Episode 9: " One of Them Nights "

Adjusting to civilian life is never easy. There weren't enough hours in the day for Spencer on All American Season 2 Episode 9. Now that he's chosen not to be a football star who was a shoo-in for a college scholarship, Spencer was having to work to raise money for college, just like the majority of his peers. It's always helpful to inject a dose of reality into...

False Horizon

Manifest: False Horizon

Season 2, Episode 3: " False Horizon "

Saanvi did not come to play on Manifest Season 2 Episode 3, but most importantly, she did not let us down either. Admittedly, my confidence in Saanvi waned a bit after Ben told her the truth about the mole and Vance. Saanvi's mental health was in a fragile space because of possibly repressed feelings for Ben and her inability to cope with her failed relationship with Alex, so th...


The Good Doctor: Mutations

Season 3, Episode 12: " Mutations "

Why does The Good Doctor have to be so sad? It isn't all the time, but The Good Doctor Season 3 Episode 12 certainly was. If you ever needed proof that cancer sucks, Angie's story was it. The whole story was one big helping of life is unfair, but the worst part of it was how caught up I got in Angie's relationship drama with her mom. For most of the ...

Blessings and Curses Reborn

Black Lightning: Blessings and Curses Reborn

Season 3, Episode 10: " The Book of Markovia: Chapter One: Blessings and Curses Reborn "

It's a new beginning for Freeland on Black Lightning Season 3 Episode 10. Well, more like a new start for Lightning and Black Lightning. After the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths, the universe isn't completely the same place that Jefferson and Jennifer left behind. Most of it looked the same, but the memory of recent events was all gone. The series, quite literally, picked up...

Lone Star Season 1 Episode 2 Review

9-1-1: Lone Star: Lone Star Season 1 Episode 2 Review

Season 1, Episode 2: " Yee-Haw "

Did the second half of the 9-1-1: Lone Star premiere land better than the first half? Yes, but it's still trying just a little too hard. 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 1 Episode 2 buckled down and got into the action of the strange and wonderful world of emergencies. The first case, in particular, played more like an episode of The X-Files than 9-1-1, and there really ...

Dark Uncle

The Outsider (US): Dark Uncle

Season 1, Episode 3: " Along Came a Spider "

What's life without concrete answers to the most burning questions? That's what Ralph debated on The Outsider Season 1 Episode 3 as the evidence against Terry continued to stack up.  But there was no logical way of placing Terry at the crime scene while he was simultaneously out of town at a conference.  The mystery continued to gather steam on "Dark Uncle," ...


Dare Me: Rapprochement

Season 1, Episode 4: " Rapprochement "

Has Dare Me finally hit its stride? It’s taken some time for this show to find it’s identity, but Dare Me Season 1 Episode 4 did a better job than the previous installments of providing a worthwhile episode from start to finish. Perhaps it’s because we finally got to know the central characters a little bit better. I’ve been screaming for more Beth expo...

The Bottle Episode

Supergirl: The Bottle Episode

Season 5, Episode 10: " The Bottle Episode "

Lex Luthor is now seen as a good guy. I never thought those words would be strung together in the same sentence, but here we are. Crisis on Infinite Earths really screwed up a few things, didn't it? Crisis did have quite an effect on Supergirl Season 5 Episode 10 as multiple doppelgängers from destroyed Earths found themselves misplaced on Earth-Prime. But there were a few thing...

It's Always Your Fault

Power: It's Always Your Fault

Season 6, Episode 13: " It's All Your Fault "

It feels like this was the episode where things finally got real. We got through Dre's story and Paz's story or suffered through for some of you guys, and finally, we got back to a main character in which we were invested thoroughly. Power Season 6 Episode 13 brought us Tommy's story through a whirlwind day full of ups and downs and dead bodies.  Tommy has been...

How Queer Everything Is Today!

Batwoman: How Queer Everything Is Today!

Season 1, Episode 10: " How Queer Everything Is Today! "

I have to say that after the insanity of the Crisis of Infinite Earths crossover, it was a relief to return to a "normal" adventure with Batwoman Season 1 Episode 10 Of course, post-Crisis Earth Prime is a distinctly different world from all the events that occurred.   Not only was Oliver Queen's death mentioned specifically but Kara Danvers got the byline on the big "Batw...

The Caviar, I Trust, Is Not Burned

Dynasty: The Caviar, I Trust, Is Not Burned

Season 3, Episode 9: " The Caviar, I Trust, Is Not Burned "

Blake got away with murder on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 9 with the help of Cristal and Fallon. But really, is anyone surprised? Usually, courtroom trials aren't the most exciting part of an episode, but when a Carrington is on trial and a Carrington-turned-Colby is on the stand, you just never know what's going to happen within the confines of those four walls.  And ...

Guess Who's Coming to SafeSpace Seattle

Charmed: Guess Who's Coming to SafeSpace Seattle

Season 2, Episode 9: " Ms. Hellfire "

After a long hiatus, the Charmed Ones are finally back in action! On Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 9, Maggie and Mel adjust to life with having powers again, while Macy uses her womanly charm to do her part to protect her family.  After weeks of being powerless, it was nice to watch Mel and Maggie growing into their new powers. I love that Mel's powers are no...
