Area 51

Project Blue Book: Area 51

Season 2, Episode 3: " Area 51 "

Who wins the toss-up for the most shadowy and shadiest conspirator? Hynek and Quinn had thought the Air Force won that coin toss, but on Project Blue Book Season 2 Episode 3, they discovered another shadowy government organization who might have beat the Air Force by a mile. But, not really. The Air Force still wins. It's surprising that the CIA would even allow...

Netflix Unlocks a Thrilling Mystery That is Worth the Wait

Locke & Key: Netflix Unlocks a Thrilling Mystery That is Worth the Wait

Season 1, Episode 10: " Crown of Shadows "

It's been a long road to the screen for Locke & Key, but if one thing is for certain after watching all ten episodes screened for critics, it's that Netflix is the perfect destination for the series.  It is a show best served binged and thanks to the way Netflix unspools its scripted originals, viewers will be enthralled by the mysteries from start to finish.  One of the th...

Wait & Hope

Prodigal Son: Wait & Hope

Season 1, Episode 13: " Wait & Hope "

Prodigal Son is pure madness, and you know what? It's what makes it so damn charming and fun. No installment fully captured how batshit bananas and unapologetically absurd and ridiculously fun this series is like Prodigal Son Season 1 Episode 13. It dared you not to laugh at Malcolm's antics, and if you didn't chuckle at least once during the hour, then maybe the show isn't for y...

Tha Crossroads

All American: Tha Crossroads

Season 2, Episode 11: " The Crossroads "

Spencer's got a long road back. But at least he's alive and walking thanks to a talented neurosurgeon on All American Season 2 Episode 11. This near-death experience even brought him back to football. His self-imposed exile from the game didn't take long. Coming back from the effects of being shot just might. It was horrible that Spencer, fighting for...

Coordinated Flight

Manifest: Coordinated Flight

Season 2, Episode 5: " Coordinated Flight "

The passengers of Flight 828 must look to the future to find answers about the death date Callings and the mystery of what happened to them on the flight. On Manifest Season 2 Episode 5, pieces of the puzzle began falling into place in exciting and unexpected ways thanks to the peacock symbol, Jared (shocker), and the Church of the Believers. Who knew they would be so key to the storyline...

The Book of Markovia

Black Lightning: The Book of Markovia

Season 3, Episode 12: " The Book of Markovia: Chapter Three: Motherless ID "

Only the worst-case scenarios can unite such two opposing forces for one cause. It would have to be a terrible fate that they'd both want to overcome. Tobias and Lynn getting kidnapped by the Markovians sounds about right! On Black Lightning Season 3 Episode 12, the heroes (and their foes) agreed to band together for a rescue mission into enemy territory. It's like Freeland's ver...

Highly Entertaining, This True-Crime Story Packs Punch

McMillions: Highly Entertaining, This True-Crime Story Packs Punch

Season 1, Episode 1: " Episode 1 "

McMillions is a story so good it seems like it comes from one of the greatest fiction writers of all time. But it's not fiction, it's fact. Executive produced by Mark Wahlberg and written and directed by James Lee Hernandez and Brian Lazarte, McMillions screams for an "inspired by" counterpart. The truth of the Monopoly scandal on McMillions features a cast of ch...

Tear Drinker

The Outsider (US): Tear Drinker

Season 1, Episode 5: " As Cold As Ashes "

There's a traitor in Holly's orbit, and she doesn't even know it.  The Outsider Season 1 Episode 5 pushed Holly and Andy closer together with Andy staying overnight in the hotel room.  I can't even begin to stress how stupid it was of Holly not to scour the room before leaving to make sure there was nothing tied to the case that she did not want anyone else to know.  ...

Engrossing Story When Watched in Order

Interrogation: Engrossing Story When Watched in Order

Season 1, Episode 10: " I.A. Sgt. Ian Lynch & Det. Brian Chen vs Trey Carano 2003 "

The latest series from CBS All Access is coming to the streaming network on Thursday, February 6. All episodes of Interrogation, a true-crime series that spans two decades, drop at once, and it was the network's intent that you could watch the premiere and then any subsequent episode in any order followed by the finale. My opinion on the matter differs, though, so I'll first shar...

The Beginning of the End

Days of our Lives: The Beginning of the End

Season 55, Episode 92: " Friday January 31, 2020 "

Please let this Gina/Stevano storyline be almost over. The writers have made it look like these two microchipped doppelgangers are about to get caught over and over, only for them to slip away so that this ridiculous story could keep going. But now that Shawn's in town and onto Gina, could things be coming to a head? The good news is that Shawn seems to have reme...

Dance Like No One is Witching

Charmed: Dance Like No One is Witching

Season 2, Episode 11: " Reckless Abandon "

The Charmed Ones were yet again faced with another set of difficult decisions to make. On Charmed (2018) Season 2 Episode 11, Macy, Maggie, and Mel were forced to decide who they really trust, and what they really want. Unlike Macy's ongoing relationship drama, it seems Maggie and Jordan are off to a great start. It came as no surprise that Jordan proved to be a...

There Was a Lull, and Tthen the Wind Began to Blow About

Hawaii Five-0: There Was a Lull, and Tthen the Wind Began to Blow About

Season 10, Episode 14: " I ho'olulu, ho'ohulei 'ia e ka makani "

This was a good-news, bad-news type of episode. Something was causing Eddie to act strangely on Hawaii Five-0 Season 10 Episode 14. Equally unlikely, Danny met the woman of his dreams while drowning his sorrows at a bar while taking a few days off. Things worked out for Eddie but sadly not for Danny, who just can't seem to catch a break. Things got of...

Reckless

Blue Bloods: Reckless

Season 10, Episode 13: " Reckless "

Danny said what many people are feeling for a lot of reasons. On Blue Bloods Season 10 Episode 13, he felt like he was living in Opposite World. For him, it was because his case was so weird. But it was oddly comforting to know that every single one of the Reagans felt that sense of the world being topsy-turvy that has become all too common in modern times. Dann...

A Wound That May Never Heal

Dynasty: A Wound That May Never Heal

Season 3, Episode 11: " A Wound That May Never Heal "

Fallon is spiraling on Dynasty Season 3 Episode 11, and it's not a good look on her.  Despite all the progress that she's made these past few seasons, Fallon always finds herself back at square one: wanting to get out of Blake Carrington's shadow.  Their back-and-forth tussle between the father and daughter is reminiscent of Dynasty Season 1, but it's pointless drama that does...

Sandra's Wedding

Superstore: Sandra's Wedding

Season 5, Episode 14: " Sandra's Wedding "

It's time to add another crazy, yet incredible Cloud 9 wedding to the books.  Sandra and Jerry tied the knot on Superstore Season 5 Episode 14, and while it definitely didn't go off without a hitch, it was a special day that the Cloud 9 family will always remember.  Except for Marcus, because he's never invited to anything.  Sandra and Jerry have always had a...
