The 100 – Season 7 Episode 10

The 100

“A Little Sacrifice” The 100 deals with Indra’s efforts to stop Sheidheda on Sanctum while those on Bardo deal with a genocidal Echo. This season’s Sheidheda plot has been great showcase for JR Bourne who owns every scene he has as that character. His performance is so strong that it elevates material that doesn’t hold…

“Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E. (Part 1)” Stargirl approaches the end of its first season, mirroring its two part opening with a two part finale crammed with even greater intensity than the opening action. It seems like Stargirl has barely got going before it’s already gearing up for the climax. Part of that is down to the…

Stargirl – Season 1 Episode 11

“Shining Knight” The pace of Stargirl slows a little, giving everyone time to take stock before things ramp up for the finale, while a tangential figure from Courtney’s past re-appears and one from her present begins to remember who he is. I’ve been looking forward to this episode, mostly so I can stop being deliberately…

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Season 7 Episode 10

Agents

“Stolen” Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to the 1980s and showcases Nathaniel Malick’s plan to build an army of Inhumans for anarchic purposes. An otherwise stellar final season of this show has been marred by underwhelming antagonists. The Chronicoms have consistently failed to feel like a credible threat despite their plan to irreparably alter history…

Interview with Chris “Doc” Wyatt

Chris

A while ago, Craig had the opportunity to talk to Chris “Doc” Wyatt; a writer and producer on many animated TV shows. The conversation covered his early career, how to write for pre-school age children, writing for different versions of well known comic characters, creating a property from the ground up and his graphic novel….

Stargirl – Season 1 Episode 10

“Brainwave Jr” Stargirl continues its theme of villain stories, and comes around to one of the series’ most loathsome characters, and interestingly also attempts to infuse him with the most moral ambiguity seen to date. If you’ve been reading these reviews, you’ll be well aware I’ve made no secret of how much I utterly despise…

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Season 7 Episode 9

“As I Have Always Been” Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. delivers its version of a time look story with Daisy and Coulson working to stop the Zephyr from being destroyed. Sooner or later pretty much every sci-fi or fantasy show does a time loop episode. It’s one of those staples of genre storytelling that’s just fun…

Stargirl – Season 1 Episode 9

Stargirl Logo

“Brainwave” Stargirl continues its focus on the villainous characters, revealing what turned Brainwave into a psychotic killer and teasing whether that legacy will be inherited by his son. Origin stories are certainly nothing new in comic book TV series, but most often they are that of a protagonist whose growth from nobody to hero forms…

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – Season 7 Episode 8

Agents

“After, Before” Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. remains in the 1980s and heads to Afterlife to consult Jiaying in order to restore Elena’s powers. It was only a matter of time before the final season got around to referencing the Inhumans and how they played into the show. The concept was first introduced in this show…
