Hell or High Water

hell-of-high-water-banner

In truth, I went in to see Hell or High Water with a sense of some trepidation. This movie comes from the pen of Taylor Sheridan, who brought us Sicario last year, a film that promised much, and delivered not much more than sweeping vistas punctuated by not very much else. The question here is…

Kneel Before Pod – Captain America: Civil War

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 4 Episode 2

Agents of SHIELD

“Meet the New Boss” The new director makes his debut in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD as Daisy continues to investigate the mysterious Robbie Reyes.

Gotham – Season 3 Episode 2

Gotham

“Mad City: Burn the Witch” Back into Gotham. Back in black. The first is me, the second is Bruce, reprising his Milk Tray Man costume as he tackles the Court of Owls. Fish is properly back too, as a main character, though in a role I didn’t expect Jada Pinkett Smith to accept; but then,…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 3 Episodes 1 & 2

Star Wars Rebels

“Steps Into Shadow” Star Wars Rebels returns for a third season with a time jump and a seemingly darker focus following on from the uncertainty of the season 2 finale.

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 4 Episode 1

Agents of SHIELD

“The Ghost” Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD begins its fourth season and introduces audiences to the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Ghost Rider. There’s a slight twist on that introduction as it isn’t the Johnny Blaze version brought to life by Nicolas Cage in 2007 and later 2011. I hesitate to say that Johnny Blaze is…

Gotham – Season 3 Episode 1

Gotham

“Mad City: Better to Reign in Hell…” Gotham begins a third season that picks up on some of the threads teased by the end of last season with an army of mutant monsters roaming the street and Gordon taking it upon himself to capture them…for a modest fee. I’m covering for Aaron this week but…

Lucifer – Season 2 Episode 1

Lucifer

“Everything’s Coming Up Lucifer” Lucifer begins its second season with a sense of urgency over the Devil’s mother being on the loose  in “Everything’s Coming Up Lucifer”. Returning readers may remember my strained relationship with this show during season 1. When Lucifer’s good it’s really good but it’s also prone to being really frustrating. There’s…

Dark Matter – Season 2 Episode 13

Dark Matter

“Episode 26 – But First, We Save the Galaxy” Dark Matter season 2 ends as it began with the Raza crew in some pretty serious trouble. We also see many little hail backs to previous episodes and even to season 1, with Ferrous Corp the clear enemy and the crew having to rely on a…
