DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 13

“Egg MacGuffin” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow deals with the Ray possession plot, continues to develop the Nate/Zari relationship and gives Mick’s role as a writer attention. “Egg MacGuffin” is one of those episodes where it’s hard to put a pin in what it’s actually about because the focus is spread pretty evenly between all of…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 12

“The Eggplant, the Witch and the Wardrobe” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow splits the team into groups to tackle separate yet connected plots that revolve around Neron.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 11

“Séance And Sensibility” Love -or at least lust- is in the ventilation system on a romantically charged DC’s Legends of Tomorrow where many of the characters confront feelings they have been denying themselves. Recent episodes have been setting up the possibility of a Nate/Zari romance in the true CW tradition of them just happening to…

“The Getaway” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow takes the team back to 1973 to make sure that Nixon tells his historic lies so that the timeline can be preserved.

“Legends of To-Meow-Meow” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow picks up right where the previous episode left off with a broken timeline resulting in some hilarious changes for the characters. I’ve said this on repeated occasions but I continue to be both impressed and baffled by the confidence in which this show throws insanity at the audience…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 8

“Byzantium” Supernatural continues with the scramble to save Jack as Heaven comes under attack from the entity that runs the Empty. Last week was a really moving exploration of how people deal with the inevitable loss attached to a terminal illness.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 7

“Hell No, Dolly!” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow dives right into the inner -and outer- Demons of John Constantine as a doll possessing Demon terrorises the crew. It shouldn’t be a surprise at this point but I’m constantly amazed at how this show manages to pull together a collection of ludicrous ideas and weaves them into…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 6

“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…
