Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Fantastic Beasts

The Harry Potter franchise continues to expand its scope in David Yates’ Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them wasn’t a bad film by any stretch. It was a little sloppy and unfocused but overall it had a great deal of potential. The Harry Potter franchise has infinite scope…

Doctor Who – Season 11 Episode 7

Doctor Who

“Kerblam!” Doctor Who takes Team TARDIS to a planet sized warehouse to investigate a dangerous conspiracy within a giant retailer. I’ll get the comparison to delivery giant Amazon out of the way right away. This episode is clearly using that company as the inspiration for Kerblam which makes sense given the ubiquity of that company…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 6

Supernatural

“Optimism” Supernatural splits Sam and Dean up on separate hunts with different partners to flesh out the alternate Charlie and add new layers to Jack. As good as it is to watch Sam and Dean on a hunt together it’s also good to explore how they interact with different characters. Sam and Charlie make for…

Titans – Season 1 Episode 5

Titans

“Together” Now that Titans has finally got all four of its main characters together (such a momentous achievement that the episode is even titled after it), you’d think that this is where things would actually start to happen. Well, you would unless you’d been paying attention. Meandering inaction has largely been the driving force of…

Black Lightning – Season 2 Episode 5

“The Book of Blood: Chapter One: Requiem” Black Lightning starts a new arc with a significant loss for the Pierce family that impacts them in really profound ways. The opening of this episode was very oddly staged. Gambi being attacked and apparently killed was a surprise as this season hasn’t spent much time showing that…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 5

Flash

“All Doll’d Up” The Flash deals with family drama through the West-Allan family and Caitlin’s ongoing quest to find her father. I’ve said previously that I greatly appreciate the writers shifting gears where Caitlin is concerned. She has been adrift for quite some time and taken down some really nonsensical plot threads. Unfortunately the missteps…

Arrow – Season 7 Episode 5

Arrow

“The Demon” Arrow continues to intensify the risk to Oliver Queen as his incarceration in Level Two continues as Felicity takes it upon herself to provide some outside assistance. Five completed episodes and Oliver Queen is still in prison. I must say I’m shocked that this story has gone on so long and I’m pleased…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 4

Legends

“Wet Hot American Bummer” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow heads to the 90s for a summer camp adventure to solve the mystery of disappearing kids that spawned a franchise of schlocky horror movies. There’s a reason I prioritise this show over any other show I have to review that day. That reason is the sheer entertainment…

Outlander – Season 4 Episode 2

Outlander

“Do No Harm” Outlander brings a family reunion and explores the difficult subject of slavery through its connection to the characters. Last week left off on a really dramatic note that pressed the reset button for Jamie and Claire in a sense. They went from people of some means to having little more than the…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 5

“Parasite Lost” Supergirl continues to develop the anti-alien plot through James being branded a symbol of the movement as Kara discovers that she should look beneath the surface before coming to conclusions. Of all the plots vying for attention this week, Kara’s was by far the weakest. I’ve repeatedly mentioned that Supergirl needs to find…
