Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 1

“American Alien” Supergirl returns for a fourth season with a revival of the anti-alien sentiment plot and slight shifts for most of the major characters. Last season was a bit lacking especially in its latter half with a poorly conceived villain story that ended up being more confusing and satisfying. This episode suggests that there’s…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episodes 15 & 16

“Family Reunion” and “Farewell” Star Wars Rebels ends its four season run with a last stand in defence of Lothal and closure on the various arcs the show has developed. Finales are hard. Saying goodbye to a beloved show is a difficult task for any fan so the writers have an uphill struggle when it…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 14

“A Fool’s Hope” Star Wars Rebels marches towards its final episodes with the Ghost crew recruiting friends and taking a stand in defence of Lothal. The end of this show is so close that it can practically be tasted and there’s a lot to get through in order to wrap things up in a really…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 13

“A World Between Worlds” Star Wars Rebels explores new ideas and teaches Ezra an important lesson when he experiences the other side of the gateway he entered in the previous episode. To the best of my knowledge the Star Wars franchise hasn’t dealt with time travel. Visions of the future are fairly common but time…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 12

“Wolves and a Door” Star Wars Rebels sets up the final phase of the series with more Jedi mysticism and a continuation of the grief being experienced by the characters. The best way to describe this episode is that it’s a prologue meaning its primary function is to set up the elements that will become…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 11

“DUME” Star Wars Rebels slows down to deal with the loss of a key character by allowing everyone to deal with it in their own way. The previous episode had a shocking ending that has widespread implications for the show as it moves into its final episodes. Hera has lost the man she loves, Ezra…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 10

“Jedi Night” Star Wars Rebels picks up from the previous episode after Hera’s capture and Kanan’s single minded desire to save her. There are so few episodes of this show left that it makes sense to focus on the characters and the relationships they share with one another. Hera and Kanan’s relationship has been vaguely defined…

Star Wars Rebels: Season 4 Episode 9

“Rebel Assault” Star Wars Rebels sees the Rebellion begin the liberation of Lothal with a daring fighter assault on the planetary blockade. First of all I have to address just how late this review is. It was always something I meant to get around to and it kept slipping further down the list until the…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 8

“Crawler Commanders” Star Wars Rebels returns to a more traditional story for this show when the Lothal based team infiltrate a Mining Guild Crawler to get a message to Hera. What we have here is essentially another heist episode. As I’ve said before this is a common episode type for Star Wars Rebels probably because it…

Star Wars Rebels – Season 4 Episode 7

“Kindred” Star Wars Rebels continues to explore the mysteries of Lothal as the Empire closes in on the Ghost Crew. The previous episode set up that there was something of cosmic importance at play that connects the characters in some unknowable way. This kind of destiny fuelled storyline is something that Star Wars is well…
