Elseworlds, Part Three

Supergirl: Elseworlds, Part Three

Season 4, Episode 9: " Elseworlds (3) "

I come to you bearing the third installment of the Elseworld's three-night crossover.  The third part, Supergirl Season 4 Episode 9, was the darkest installment in Elseworld's, but for a reason -- it was the one where Deegan's "bigger" plan came to fruition.   The previous episodes, mainly The Flash Season 5 Episode 9, set the scene for what was to come while focusing more o...

New Orleans Season 5 Episode 10 Review

NCIS: New Orleans: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 10 Review

Season 5, Episode 10: " Tick Tock "

You just knew things weren't going to end well for Cassius. But at least, after leading a generally despicable life, he went out a hero on NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 10. And Parsons isn't going to bother anyone ever again. Both of their deaths just had a kind of inevitability to them, didn't they? Cassius made Dwayne into the lawman he is t...

Elseworlds, Part Two

Arrow: Elseworlds, Part Two

Season 7, Episode 9: " Elseworlds (2) "

It's not easy to maintain the excitement of a three-night event, and Arrow Season 7 Episode 9 fell short of The Flash Season 5 Episode 9. The aim was to introduce a brand new character in Kate Kane, a new superhero in Batwoman, the grail of comic cities in Gotham, and successfully lay the track for the third episode of the trilogy. All of those things were done, but the transit...

Elseworlds, Part One

The Flash: Elseworlds, Part One

Season 5, Episode 9: " Elseworlds (1) "

Here’s my pitch: We cancel the individual Arrowverse shows. Instead, we run with a brand new series called Elseworlds. It plays three nights a week, and we get to see all our favorite superheroes team up together and defeat evil from every earth imaginable. Like The Avengers, but without Thanos! OK, maybe having all our heroes in one place on a weekly basis would end up somewha...

Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 10 Review

NCIS: Los Angeles: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 10 Review

Season 10, Episode 10: " Heist "

What an odd little episode! Polite bank robbers led the squad to a seemingly corrupt Navy contractor on NCIS: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 10. But nothing was as it seemed. Except for Rogers. He was still pretty much a dick. The revolving door of adult supervision kept spinning, and this time it spit out the special prosecutor we all thought was go...

Season 5, Episode 9: " Winter Garden "

When you're dealing with international crises day in and day out, you have to take your victories where you can get them.

Blood of My Blood

Outlander: Blood of My Blood

Season 4, Episode 6: " Blood of My Blood "

The Fraser homestead has barely been lived in and it's already time to build an addition to accommodate guests! It sure looks cozy with the fireplace lit and the dinner table set, but if Outlander Season 4 Episode 6 proved anything about Fraser's Ridge, it's that the long-wed couple needs to expand. Not only are they sharing their home with Ian, but Murtagh was visiting, and L...

Out of The Frying Pan, Into the Fire

Days of our Lives: Out of The Frying Pan, Into the Fire

Season 54, Episode 53: " Friday December 7, 2018 "

The twisted Stefan-in-love-with-a-nonexistent-person storyline continues to dominate Days of Our Lives, and that's a shame. During the week of 12-3-18, there was a lot of movement on several fronts. Ben proved himself to be smarter than Ted and Hope, Maggie took a more central role in the Holly custody storyline, and Gabi's plan started unraveling. But there was also Abigail pret...

Authority Figures

Blue Bloods: Authority Figures

Season 9, Episode 10: " Authority Figures "

Frank was embroiled in yet another NYPD controversy on Blue Bloods Season 9 Episode 10 but this time it turned into a different family's affair. I'm not about to defend people who were stealing, but Lt. Harvey's ploy was pretty blatant.  He had a sneaker truck with a huge basketball logo "break down" on the corner and then had the driver walk away and leave the truck unlocked....

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: I'm Not the Person I Used To Be

Season 4, Episode 8: " I'm Not The Person I Used To Be "

Greg is back and everything makes sense again.  More realistically though, Greg's return marks the question of identity and being able to change over time. Skylar Astin reinvents a new version of that role, proving that it is never too late to check in on an old favorite.  During Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 4 Episode 8, Rebecca deals with her various growing feelings for Josh ...
