DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 3 Episode 11

“Here I Go Again” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow channels Groundhog Day when Zari finds herself stuck in a time loop ending in the destruction of the Waverider. A time loop episode for this show was inevitable. Most sci-fi/fantasy shows get around to it sooner or later and I’m actually surprised that this one took so…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 3 Episode 10

“Daddy Darhkest” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow picks up where it left off after a long hiatus with the arrival of fan favourite John Constantine onto the Waverider to help with the Mallus problem. There has been a widespread sense of disappointment ever since the cancellation of Constantine. The casting of the character was note perfect…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 11

“City of Angels?” Lucifer returns from Winter Hiatus with a trip back in time to events that happened before “Pilot” showing Lucifer’s early days on Earth. This episode marks the final unused season 2 episode and represents another slight break in the normal format by taking the characters we know and showing how they were…

Doctor Who – 2017 Christmas Special

“Twice Upon a Time” Another Christmas Day brings us more Doctor Who with the swan song of Peter Capaldi’s version of the character to make way for something new. The most recent season ended with the Doctor resisting regeneration and coming face to face with the first face he ever wore. David Bradley takes on…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 10

“The Sin Bin” Lucifer begins the winter hiatus by closing off the Sinnerman arc and delivering an unexpected twist ending to mull over until the show returns. I mentioned last week that the Sinnerman reveal felt underwhelming considering the build-up. I’m not sure what could have made it any more satisfying but it felt at…

The Gifted – Season 1 Episode 10

“eXploited” The Gifted wraps up for its winter hiatus with caged Mutants and extreme methods on both sides of the Mutant/Human conflict. Esme is the real star of the show this week in so many ways. I mentioned last week that she was likely manipulating the others to get the best outcome for herself and…

Outlander – Season 3 Episode 13

“Eye of the Storm” Outlander brings an end to season 3 by closing off the Jamaica arc and setting up a new location for the next season. Like so many things this season the Jamaica arc has felt very rushed. The reintroduction of Geillis last week and the reveal that she is manipulating pretty much…

Arrow – Season 6 Episode 9

“Irreconcilable Differences” Arrow heads into the winter hiatus with betrayal, mistrust, a wedding and a villain team up that promises complications when the show returns in January. Most of the above list is true except from the wedding, technically that happened during the crossover so this episode technically has the reception. Oliver and Felicity throw a…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 3 Episode 9

“Beebo the God of War” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow takes the team to England to battle toy worshipping Vikings as they deal with the recent loss of a team member. You might be forgiven for expecting this episode to be more on the glum side considering the recent loss of Martin Stein. As I said…

The Flash – Season 4 Episode 9

“Don’t Run” The Flash wraps up for midseason with some Christmas cheer and a double kidnapping for the team to deal with. I’ve frequently pointed out that this show doesn’t make the best use of characters not named Barry Allen -though it often doesn’t make the best use of characters who are named Barry Allen-…
