King Shark vs. Gorilla Grodd

The Flash: King Shark vs. Gorilla Grodd

Season 5, Episode 15: " King Shark vs. Gorilla Grodd "

Long live the King. The Flash creators have been vocal in their desire for fans to watch the show primarily for its action sequences. That was fine in the beginning, but the past few seasons have opted to focus more on the cerebral side of Team Flash as opposed to any intense hand to hand combat. Focusing more on the characters is not a bad thing for a plot-driven show to d...

Willful Blindness

Good Trouble: Willful Blindness

Season 1, Episode 9: " Willful Blindness "

Not only does Good Trouble bring so much trouble, but they bring angst, too.  Good Trouble Season 1 Episode 9 had a serious tone, more so than previous installments. The closest the hour came to being funny was Alice cracking jokes at Sumi's expense on Joey's radio station. It made the overall tone of the hour heavier than we are accustomed to, but more introspective too. ...

You Are Not That Girl Anymore

The Passage: You Are Not That Girl Anymore

Season 1, Episode 8: " You Are Not That Girl Anymore "

Well, that will go down as one of the most unexpected episodes in quite some time.  The Passage Season 1 Episode 8 had lives on the line, a desperate fight to create a cure and one hell of a cliffhanger.  Amy has long been seen as the savior of sorts for the virus that's coming, but our heroes never really entertained the possibility that she was going to be ...

Brothers & Sisters

Arrow: Brothers & Sisters

Season 7, Episode 14: " Brothers & Sisters "

It's time for Diggle and Lyla to get a different storyline. As we saw on Arrow Season 7 Episode 14, the stupid Ghost Initiative (aka Suicide Squad) was back again with little purpose. ARGUS is so dull that the show is counting on one of the worst groups ever to air on it for inspiration. If the Ghost Initiative was worth its weight, we'd see more of Carrie Cutter and China White...


The Good Doctor: Breakdown

Season 2, Episode 17: " Breakdown "

If you were looking for changes, then The Good Doctor Season 2 Episode 17 was the episode you wanted.  Some of the changes on "Breakdown" were for the better, and some were for the worse. In all honesty, it was one of my favorite episodes of the series to date.  I am so proud of Shaun. When The Good Doctor debuted, Shaun was belittled by most of the staff members, and h...

Adverse Events

The Resident: Adverse Events

Season 2, Episode 16: " Adverse Events "

Gordon's days are numbered, but not before he makes sure it's the same for others.  There is no end to this man's despicable ways. The moment it seems like he may be down and out, as evident by the end of The Resident Season 2 Episode 16, he finds a stroke of luck.  The stroke of luck in this instance is also the man who helped bring him down a peg; Marshall.  ...

Black is the Widow

Magnum P.I.: Black is the Widow

Season 1, Episode 17: " Black is the Widow "

There is no doubt in my mind that Miggins is going to become a reality sooner rather than later. It wouldn't even surprise me if it happened before the end of Magnum P.I. Season 1. It won't be a full-blown romance, but Magnum and Higgins will come to the conclusion that they are attracted to each other but will not know how to deal with their feelings and will set them aside unt...

Original Sin

Black Lightning: Original Sin

Season 2, Episode 14: " The Book of Secrets: Chapter 4: Original Sin "

The secrets of the past won't stay dead and buried. Jefferson nearly died because someone was that desperate enough to learn the truth. Based on Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 14, someone is making sure they get all the answers to get their sweet revenge. However, the truth wasn't exactly what they wanted to hear. And we can agree with that sentiment. Latavius ...

Original Sin

Shadowhunters: Original Sin

Season 3, Episode 12: " Original Sin "

Who wouldn't want to take a stroll through Paris? Even if that meant having to spend the day with Jonathan, you could still sign me right up! Clary's misadventures with her demonic brother took her to the City of Lights on Shadowhunters Season 3 Episode 12. Paris was Jonathan's way of trying to win over his sister, but her dream destination couldn't hide his evilness. That dark s...

Two Guys, a Girl, and a Thai Food Place

God Friended Me: Two Guys, a Girl, and a Thai Food Place

Season 1, Episode 15: " Two Guys, a Girl, and a Thai Food Place "

"I think it's nice to see people realize that they were right for each other all along." Long pause. Well, God Friended Me Season 1 Episode 15 finally gave us the moment where Miles took his own advice.  Miles and Cara both decided that they were right for each other all along!  After a little nudge from Fliss and the Universe, Miles asked Cara ...

Manic Pixie Nightmare

Charmed (2018): Manic Pixie Nightmare

Season 1, Episode 13: " Manic Pixie Nightmare "

Careful with that killer highlighter, ladies and gents! One swipe too many and you could wind up a manic pixie murderer, too! If we're honest (and we are), after watching the trailer for Charmed (2018) Season 1 Episode 13, I expected to walk away from this episode rolling my eyes and muttering under my breath about the manic pixie dream girl trope getting used as an overabundant plot ...


Shameless: Lost

Season 9, Episode 13: " Lost "

Just like that, Emmy Rossum's departure from Shameless has been set up.  Shameless Season 9 Episode 13 was a transitional hour that set Fiona on a new path, and I loved every single minute of it.  I'm thrilled that Fiona finally decided to take accountability for her actions, and wants to prove that she can still be happy despite losing everything.  I did rol...


The Walking Dead: Guardians

Season 9, Episode 12: " Guardians "

Do you want to keep your head? Never question Alpha's leadership. On The Walking Dead Season 9 Episode 12, Henry tracked down Lydia and the Whisperers but bit off more than he could chew, and Negan offered to prove his worth in Alexandria. "Guardians" provided an interesting -- and horrific -- glimpse into the Whisperers' way of life. If you thought the standoff at Hilltop was di...

What's so Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way?

Supergirl: What's so Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way?

Season 4, Episode 13: " What's So Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way? "

The Elite did not form to play games, even if their approach is casual with a flair for magic tricks.  Manchester Black, Hat, Menagerie, and the Morae were all business when it came to making a statement against racist, fascists, and the Children of Liberty on Supergirl Season 4 Episode 13. For most of Supergirl Season 4, Supergirl has been dealing with extremists.  ...

Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 16 Review

NCIS: Los Angeles: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 16 Review

Season 10, Episode 16: " Into the Breach "

So, is the San Diego NCIS office the farm team for the OSP? That's a question that came to mind while watching NCIS: Los Angeles Season 10 Episode 16. First, it got established the Fatima was sent to San Diego, with the subtext that it was for some seasoning. But Nell noted that Fatima is from Los Angeles, so maybe she'll be back. I vote yes, once they figure ou...
