Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 18

Supernatural

“Bring ‘Em Back Alive” Supernatural returns to the alternate universe for a rescue mission as Lucifer struggles to maintain control of Heaven and Sam works to help Gabriel along with Castiel. We’re on the final stretch of the season now which usually means that the plot starts to ramp up. This episode is an example…

Rampage

Rampage

Three animals are exposed to an experimental pathogen and balloon up to city destroying size in Brad Peyton’s Rampage. Video game adaptations aren’t exactly cinematic gold. They are routinely met with mixed to negative reactions and are generally regarded as being an unworkable concept. My personal opinion is that for the most part they aren’t…

Black Lightning – Season 1 Episode 12

Black Lightning

“The Resurrection and the Light: The Book of Pain” Black Lightning prepares for the season finale with the return of Tobias and forward movement on what the A.S.A. has planned for Freeland. In many ways this episode is more of a recap in preparation for the season finale and the episode greatly suffers for this…

The Flash – Season 4 Episode 17

Flash

“Null and Annoyed” The Flash returns from an extended hiatus to introduce another bus meta and teach Ralph another lesson about being a hero. A sizeable chunk of my criticisms of this season are attributed to Ralph. I find the character annoying which is definitely a personal reaction to the way he’s written but I…

iZombie – Season 4 Episode 6

iZombie

“My Really Fair Lady” iZombie picks up Liv’s plan to carry on what Mama Leone started in order to find a way to help the people either most in need or forgotten by society. This season of iZombie is dead set on holding up a mirror to our own world by exaggerating some of the…

A Quiet Place

Quiet

A family is forced to live in near total silence to hide from creatures that hunt by sound in John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place. Right from the off it’s very clear that a lot of thought went into this film. The idea of being inhumanly quiet to survive is just the sort of high concept…

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – Season 5 Episode 16

Agents

“Inside Voices” Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD explores the idea of invincible agents as Coulson works to remove himself from General Hale’s captivity. Last week‘s episode had Simmons learn that she may be invincible in the same way Elena is because it is know that she makes it to a certain point that is far enough…

Arrow – Season 6 Episode 17

Arrow

“Brothers in Arms” Arrow explores Diggle’s desire to take on the mantle of Green Arrow causing a major rift to develop between the the only two members of the team who go out in the field. Broadly speaking this season has been about loss, it could be argued that it has been about change but…
