Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 8

“Bunker Hill” Supergirl reaches a turning point in the ongoing struggle against Agent Liberty as the mystery behind Nia is answered. This show hasn’t always done the best job connecting the various ongoing plots. Fortunately the same can’t be said about this season so far. Manchester Black’s quest for vengeance is intimately tied to the…

Doctor Who – Season 11 Episode 9

Doctor Who

“It Takes You Away” Team TARDIS heads to Norway to investigate the disappearance of a blind girl’s father in an atmospheric and mysterious episode of Doctor Who. I’ve mentioned before that pretty much every episode of Doctor Who is mystery that needs to be solved and I still think that’s true for the most part….

Kneel Before Pod – 100th Podcast Spectacular

100

The podcast has reached the massive milestone of 100 episodes -not including interviews or episodes that were split- and as a celebration as many people as possible got together in the same room to record a celebration of everything that we’ve done up to this point. Some of it was live on facebook back in…

Titans – Season 1 Episode 7

Titans

“Asylum” Alternating back into a ‘plot’ episode, the group investigate the possible location of Rachel’s mother, and in the process find out more about themselves than they would care to know. The end of the last episode insinuated something resembling answers would be coming when Dr Adamson woke up and wanted to speak to Rachel….

Black Lightning – Season 2 Episode 7

“The Book of Blood: Chapter 3: The Sange” Black Lightning continues its excursion to the world of South Freeland as Khalil makes a very risky decision that could have severe consequences for him. The introduction of South Freeland last week was a great opportunity to expand the world of the show by establishing two compelling…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 7

Flash

“O Come, All Ye Thankful” Father/daughter relationships in their different forms take the stage in a belated Thanksgiving episode of The Flash. One of the best things about this season so far as I’ve repeatedly said is the relationship between Barry and Nora. Pushing aside the time travel aspect it’s basically a tale of a…

Titans – Season 1 Episode 6

Titans

“Jason Todd” After making strides towards moving the story along in the last episode, Titans now launches off on another directionless tangent episode with Jason Todd, bringing with it all the meandering plot and meaningless pseudo-development we’ve come to expect. The end of Together saw Dick face Dr Adamson and get some cryptic allusions to…

Arrow – Season 7 Episode 7

Arrow

“The Slabside Redemption” Arrow closes out the prison arc with the long awaited Oliver/Diaz showdown amidst an all out prison riot. Seven full episodes of Oliver Queen in prison was far more than I expected from this season. Of course a long plot doesn’t necessarily mean a good one but the writers have made good…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 6

Legends

“Tender is the Nate” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow takes the team to 1920s Paris to hunt down a Minotaur and justify their spending to Nate’s father. In the criminally underrated 2010 movie The A-Team, that particular team are described as being the best and specialising in the ridiculous. That description could easily be applied to…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 7

“Rather the Fallen Angel” James willingly becomes the face of the Children of Liberty and Lena moves forward with her experiments that could grant Humans super powers in another racially charged episode of Supergirl. The choice in story this season means that the writers have to walk a thin line in terms of how they’re…
