Elseworlds Part 1

Elseworlds; the annual DC TV crossover story begins with a -sort of- body switching plot and the promise of a large scale threat. I’ll freely admit that the crossover stories are something I look forward to every year. Even though I don’t always love the shows that participate in them I’m still fully invested in…

Outlander – Season 4 Episode 6

“Blood of My Blood” Outlander focuses on the complexities of family as Jamie’s old friend Lord John Grey comes to Fraser’s Ridge. Last season saw Jamie father a child that he asked John Grey to raise in order to guarantee his son have a good life. At the time it was deeply difficult for Jamie…

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. The overriding message was enjoying the time left and preparing for life without a…

Titans – Season 1 Episode 8

“Donna Troy” With Titans‘ alternation between episodes following the principal story and those taking on meandering side plots, it would follow that we’re due for another of the latter, especially since such episodes are invariably titled after the characters brought in for a one-shot appearance. However, those churning out this tedious slog of a series…

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…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 7

“Unhuman Nature” Sam, Dean and Castiel scramble desperately to find a way to save Jack when his condition worsens in the latest Supernatural. Jack has certainly made an impression in his relatively short time on the show. His presence has enabled Sam, Dean and Castiel to learn what sort of a father they would be…

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.
