Star Trek: Discovery – Season 2 Episode 5

Discovery

“Saints of Imperfection” Star Trek: Discovery has the crew embark on a daring rescue mission to retrieve Tilly from the clutches of the Mycelial Network. The search for Spock is really becoming tedious. Yes I do want to make use of that title reference as much as I can but the point still stands. Each…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 14

Flash

“Cause and XS” The Flash delivers its own take on a time loop when Nora keeps repeating an hour that always ends up with at least one of the team dying. It’s surprising that it took this show until the second half of its fifth season to deliver a Groundhog Day inspired episode given all…

Arrow – Season 7 Episode 13

Arrow

“Star City Slayer” Arrow dabbles with horror when the serial killer targeting the team steps up his efforts as a couple of characters consider major life changes. One way or another family has always been at the heart of this show whether it be Oliver’s connection to his parents and Thea, his marriage to Felicity…

Alita: Battle Angel

Alita

A deactivated cyborg is revived and rebuilt with no memory of her past so goes on a quest to learn the truth about herself in Robert Rodriguez’ Alita: Battle Angel.

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 13

Supernatural

“Lebanon” Supernatural celebrates its 300th episode with a family reunion, a creepy killer ghost clown and a temporal paradox. Here we are at another Supernatural milestone. The 200th episode was unadulterated fan service in the best way. It’s hard to believe another 100 episodes have happened since then with no end in sight for the…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 2 Episode 4

Discovery

“An Obol for Charon” Star Trek: Discovery delivers a riff on an old Star Trek plot when a mysterious life form threatens the ship and the crew have to race against time to save themselves. So many episodes of the various Star Trek shows have had this basic setup whether it be an anomaly of…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 13

Flash

“Goldfaced” The Flash explores the criminal underworld when Barry and Ralph pretend to be bad guys to get their hands on tech that could help them stop Cicada. There’s definitely a pattern emerging in episode setups at the moment. Cicada is still a looming threat and there always seems to be a MacGuffin that might…

Titans – Season 1 Episode 11

Titans

“Dick Grayson” Well, we made it. The endless rambling and meandering and sidetracking have finally stumbled towards the end of this first season of Titans, if not the end of its actual story. Although the series wasn’t entirely a badly-written dumpster fire of an endurance trial and was admittedly interspersed with the occasional flash of…

Arrow – Season 7 Episode 12

“Emerald Archer” Arrow celebrates its 150th episode with a slight alteration in format and a suggestion for how the show moves forward. The documentary format has been used here and there in TV shows to offer different insights into the characters. The Simpsons “Behind the Laughter” is the only one that springs immediately to mind…

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Dragon

Change threatens the harmony between Humans and Dragon in Dean DeBlois’ How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. The How to Train Your Dragon franchise numbers among the strongest animated franchises with two previous entries that are roughly equal in quality and polish as well as a collection of series on Netflix that definitely have an…
