The Good Fight: The Gang Goes To War

Season 4, Episode 5: " The Gang Goes to War "

When do we cross the line? Is it when we mix business and pleasure? When we overstep our authority? When the lines between professional and personal become blurred? All these questions were asked on The Good Fight Season 4 Episode 5, as the series stepped away from Memo 618 for the most part and focused on the interpersonal relationships. Liz and Caleb, for once...

Freaks and Geeks

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Freaks and Geeks

Season 5, Episode 11: " Ship Broken "

Going Greek had a couple of meanings on DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Episode 11. The Legends grew closer and closer to using the Loom of Fate, but first, they needed to acquire the Chalice of Dionysus from the god himself to do so. It proved to be a bit of a challenge for them because of Dion's suspicions that using the Loom would diminish the amount of partying in the world...

Season 1, Episode 7: " Uncle Danny "

It's easier to understand Alex now. That was after meeting his Uncle Danny, the man who raised him, on Almost Paradise Season 1 Episode 7. Now we know why Alex is so distrustful of everyone.

Are You From Pinner?

Killing Eve: Are You From Pinner?

Season 3, Episode 5: " Are You From Pinner? "

Home isn't always where the heart is. Villanelle found that out on Killing Eve Season 3 Episode 5. We barely knew anything going into it about Villanelle's childhood. We knew from Killing Eve Season 1 that Villanelle ends up at the school with Anna before eventually getting recruited for The Twelve in prison, but everything before that got glossed over. ...

City of Angels Season 1 Episode 3 Review

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels: City of Angels Season 1 Episode 3 Review

A Secret Kept From All the Rest

Batwoman: A Secret Kept From All the Rest

Woah. I'm not exactly sure what that was about, but holy canon craziness, Batman, Batwoman Season 1 Episode 19 threw out a lot of unexpected developments. Developments that will have the comic-purists up in arms (like they haven't been already) about how kryptonite could be the element to kill Batwoman. Anyone else thinking that Lucius Fox left that journal to punk anyone looking...

One-Queen Show

RuPaul's Drag Race: One-Queen Show

Season 12, Episode 11: " One-Queen Show "

Comedy is tougher than it looks! Even if you're naturally funny like Crystal Methyd or Heidi Afrodite, creating a well-designed comedy show that brings the laughs takes a lot of work. The queens put their planning and improv skills to the test in their one-woman show on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 12 Episode 11.

Insisting on the Impossible

Days of our Lives: Insisting on the Impossible

Season 55, Episode 162: " Friday May 8, 2020 "

Days of Our Lives has done the impossible. No, not brought Stefan back from the dead (if they did.). But even though neither Lani nor Kristen appeals to me, their scenes together were among the best of Days of Our Lives during the week of 5-04-20. Lani and Kristen have so much chemistry that it's a shame that Days of Our Lives didn't make them a romantic couple i...

Episode 5

Defending Jacob: Episode 5

Season 1, Episode 5: " Visitors "

It's difficult to believe that someone could be so cruel.  Defending Jacob Season 1 Episode 5 welcomed the superb J.K. Simmons into the fold as Billy Barber, and boy, he's a piece of work.  Billy made his bed when he murdered a young woman, so the very notion that he feels his son has failed him by not getting his sentence reduced was absurd.  What should hav...
