Kneel Before Pod – Legion – Dial-up Monk

Legion

Another three episodes of Legion have been aired so Kneel Before Pod continues its regular coverage of the second season with a discussion of Episodes 8, 9 and 10 titled “Chapter 16”, “Chapter 17” and “Chapter 18”.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World

J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom takes audiences back to the island one last time as the dinosaurs face a second extinction because of an erupting volcano. I wasn’t really a fan of the spinoff/sequel/reboot Jurassic World because it relied too heavily on referencing the landmark Jurassic Park instead of telling its own story. It…

iZombie – Season 4 Episode 13

iZombie

“And He Shall be a Good Man” iZombie ends its fourth season with Zombies attempting to escape Seattle, an attempted execution and wrapping up several plot threads. This has been a very busy season and I’ve talked at length about how it doesn’t quite hang together as well as it should. Despite its flaws, it’s…

Supergirl – Season 3 Episode 20

Supergirl

“Dark Side of the Moon” Supergirl delivers a shock reveal during Kara and Mon’El’s interstellar road-trip as Alex has an experience that shakes her world view in a really profound way.
