Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 10

Lucifer

“The Sin Bin” Lucifer begins the winter hiatus by closing off the Sinnerman arc and delivering an unexpected twist ending to mull over until the show returns. I mentioned last week that the Sinnerman reveal felt underwhelming considering the build-up. I’m not sure what could have made it any more satisfying but it felt at…

The Gifted – Season 1 Episode 10

Gifted

“eXploited” The Gifted wraps up for its winter hiatus with caged Mutants and extreme methods on both sides of the Mutant/Human conflict. Esme is the real star of the show this week in so many ways.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Jumanji

Hollywood delivers another long delayed sequel in the form of Jake Kasdan’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. The original Jumanji is a serviceable if unremarkable adventure romp elevated by the presence of the late great Robin Williams. It wasn’t something that particularly needed a sequel nor was anyone really crying out for one. There was…

Gotham – Season 4 – A Dark Knight

Gotham

A Dark Knight arc I still very much struggle with the Gotham’s choice of style. The MCU TV connections are mostly going for the gritty angle, the Arrowverse has its various levels of  fun to play with, and then Gotham takes… soap opera? I mean action-soap as a theme is unclaimed by any other superhero…

The Disaster Artist

Disaster

The story of the making of what many consider to be the worst film of all time is chronicled in James Franco’s The Disaster Artist I’ll start by addressing the biggest question that people will have before going into this film.

Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 9

Supernatural

“The Bad Place” Supernatural brings Jack back into the fold and returns to the universe hopping plot before going into its winter hiatus. Jack’s return was inevitably going to be around the time of the winter break. He’s a necessary part of the overall plot of the season and required to move things forward. More…

Arrow – Season 6 Episode 9

Arrow

“Irreconcilable Differences” Arrow heads into the winter hiatus with betrayal, mistrust, a wedding and a villain team up that promises complications when the show returns in January. Most of the above list is true except from the wedding, technically that happened during the crossover so this episode technically has the reception. Oliver and Felicity throw a…
