Gotham – Season 3 Episodes 21 & 22

Gotham

Heroes Rise finale: “Destiny Calling” and “HeavyDirtySoul” Gotham ends season 3 with many characters questioning their identity: those having been infected with the virus supposedly seeing their real selves; those caught up in the chaos seeing what they’re made of in the face of it. Some of these questions definitely had a greater effect on…

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 8

Doctor Who

“The Lie of the Land” Doctor Who closes off the arc started in “Extremis” and continued in “The Pyramid at the End of the World“. I’ve been very vocal about how weak the previous two episodes have been. Despite some strong ideas and excellent acting the overall premise has been fairly badly executed to the…

iZombie – Season 3 Episode 9

iZombie

“Twenty-Sided Die” iZombie lampoons Dungeous and Dragons when Liv ingests the brain of a murdered Dungeon Master as things grow more intense with the upcoming Zombie/Human conflict. Even though the procedural elements of the show are the weakest when stacked up against everything else there are still plenty of opportunities to deliver something slightly different…

Lucifer – Season 2 Episode 18

Lucifer

“The Good, the Bad and the Crispy” Lucifer closes off season 2 with a resolution to the Lucifer’s Mother arc when she tries to cover up her accidental murder from last week. The procedural elements of this show are often the weakest part but there was a refreshing twist on it this week when it…

Gotham – Season 3 Episode 20

Gotham

“Heroes Rise: Pretty Hate Machine” I’m hoping that this week’s Gotham is the setup for the double-episode season finale plot in the same way that ‘Light the Wick’ felt like the painful setup for ‘All Will Be Judged’. Not that I disliked this week’s fare as much as ‘Light the Wick’ but a large majority…

Doctor Who – Season 10 Episode 7

Doctor Who

“The Pyramid at the end of the World” Doctor Who continues the story started last week with a mysterious 5000 year old pyramid that appears overnight. Global threats have happened so often in the revived Doctor Who that they’ve become something of a joke. It gets to the point where the Earth has been threatened…

The 100 – Season 4 Episode 13

The 100

“Praimfaya” The 100 closes off season 4 with the arrival of the Death Wave and a race against time to make it into space before it’s too late. Last week ended with the last ditch plan to escape into space and live on what’s left on the Ark. To make this happen, Raven needs to…

Arrow – Season 5 Episode 23

Arrow

“Lian Yu” Arrow closes off its fifth season by focusing on Oliver’s final battle with Adrian Chase and bringing an end to the flashbacks. Last week set the stage for the conflict by outlining the stakes and setting up Oliver’s temporary team with the enigmatic cliffhanger showing him asking Slade Wilson for help. The opening…

iZombie – Season 3 Episode 8

iZombie

“Eat a Knievel” iZombie has Liv consume the brain of a deceased daredevil and builds on most of the existing plots in different ways. I’ll start off with the case of the week as it’s probably a broken record for me to point out that I find it to be the weakest part of the…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 23

The Flash

“Finish Line” The Flash closes off season 3 by revealing the fate or Iris and delivering a final confrontation between Barry and Savitar. I suspected last week that something would happen to undo or invalidate Iris’ death at the hands of Savitar. With an entire episode left to go it made sense that there was…
