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-…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 9

“The Sinnerman” Lucifer introduces the mysterious Sinnerman as Maze makes her welcome return from an extended hiatus to find that so much has changed since she left. Maze is a character that has been sorely missed this season. Outside of the brilliant “Mr. and Mrs. Mazikeen Smith” she hasn’t been seen and the show has…

The Gifted – Season 1 Episode 9

“outfoX” The Gifted expands the character relationships by building on the revelations dropped in the previous episode, another heist and more Mutant family drama. The events of the previous episode involved Reed finding an awful lot about his family and personal history. Much of this is referenced in a conversation between Raid and Caitlin where…

Crisis on Earth-X- Night 2

DC’s Crisis on Earth-X continues with our heroes separated and captured by Nazis with little hope of rescue or escape. Going into the third part the situation is grim. Oliver, Barry, Sara, Alex, Jax and Martin are stuck in an Earth-X concentration camp while Team Arrow, Cisco, Caitlin, Harry and Kara are trapped in the…

Crisis on Earth-X – Night 1

This year’s Arrowverse crossover begins with a double whammy taking place in episodes of Supergirl and Arrow. Our heroes are forced to battle the darkest parts of themselves when Nazis from another Earth attack. A crossover like this creates problems for a reviewer in terms of how to approach it. I wrestled with whether I…
