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…

Doctor Who – Season 11 Episode 6

Doctor Who

“Demons of the Punjab” Doctor Who takes Team TARDIS back to India in 1947 on the day that the Partition of India became a reality after Yaz asks the Doctor to show her a piece of her family history. Time travel brings a large degree of curiosity with it. There is the temptation to be…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 5

Supernatural

“Nightmare Logic” Supernatural explores differing views on leadership and the fears that live deep inside people that they try to bury. The most interesting thing going on for Sam this season is that he’s in a position of leadership and acting as a mentor for a group of Hunters. Even though they have experience fighting…
