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

“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….

Titans – Season 1 Episode 7

“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…

Titans – Season 1 Episode 6

“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…

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…

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…

Black Lightning – Season 2 Episode 6

“The Book of Blood: Chapter Two: The Perdi” Black Lightning expands its world by introducing South Freeland while the characters process the consequences of the events of the previous episode. TV shows with worlds that feel like they continue to exist outside of the perspective of the main characters are often stronger than those who…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episode 5

“Tagumo Attacks!!!” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow explores the reluctance that comes with expressing creativity and the fear associated with tapping into potential. The writers of this show are very good at taking two things that really shouldn’t have any connection and finding a way for them to fit seamlessly into complimentary plots that have very…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 6

“Call to Action” Anti-alien tensions continue to escalate when the Children of Liberty manifesto is released in a Thanksgiving themed episode of Supergirl. The opening scene very much sets the tone for what turns out to be a fairly bleak episode of this show. Manchester Black shows up to defend aliens who are being attacked…
