The 100 – Season 4 Episode 13

The 100

“Praimfaya” The 100 closes off season 4 with the arrival of the Death Wave and a race against time to make it into space before it’s too late. Last week ended with the last ditch plan to escape into space and live on what’s left on the Ark. To make this happen, Raven needs to…

Arrow – Season 5 Episode 23

Arrow

“Lian Yu” Arrow closes off its fifth season by focusing on Oliver’s final battle with Adrian Chase and bringing an end to the flashbacks. Last week set the stage for the conflict by outlining the stakes and setting up Oliver’s temporary team with the enigmatic cliffhanger showing him asking Slade Wilson for help. The opening…

iZombie – Season 3 Episode 8

iZombie

“Eat a Knievel” iZombie has Liv consume the brain of a deceased daredevil and builds on most of the existing plots in different ways. I’ll start off with the case of the week as it’s probably a broken record for me to point out that I find it to be the weakest part of the…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 23

The Flash

“Finish Line” The Flash closes off season 3 by revealing the fate or Iris and delivering a final confrontation between Barry and Savitar. I suspected last week that something would happen to undo or invalidate Iris’ death at the hands of Savitar. With an entire episode left to go it made sense that there was…

Lucifer – Season 2 Episode 17

Lucifer

“Sympathy for the Goddess” Lucifer continues the search for the missing pieces of the sword as Chloe sees a different side to “Charlotte”. One thing I’ve appreciated about the second season of Lucifer is the constant desire to step outside its comfort zone. Season 1 had its flaws but one thing that was well built…

Gotham – Season 3 Episode 19

Gotham

“Heroes Rise: All Will Be Judged” It feels like last week’s episode of Gotham was more of a setup for this week’s rather than something I could enjoy on its own merits. This week the strength of The Plot Force (the force that makes characters make out-of-character or silly decisions to suit the needs of the…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 22

Supergirl

“Nevertheless, She Persisted” Supergirl closes off season 2 with a trial by combat to decide the fate of the Earth and the return of Superman. The episode picks right up from last week with Clark attacking Kara seemingly under the control of Rhea. It turns out that he is but not in a direct sense….

Colossal

Colossal

An out of work party girl returns home and slowly begins to realise that she is heavily connected to a recent series of monster attacks in Seoul in Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal. This is a film that can be read on more than one level. The basic concept of a woman discovering that she can remote…

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 6

Doctor Who

“Extremis” Doctor Who reveals the occupant of the vault and the Doctor is recruited by the Vatican to investigate a mysterious book. The concept is a simple yet interesting one. I love the idea of a book that causes people to drop dead shortly after reading it. It’s a compelling mystery and feels like an…
