Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 1

Batwoman

“Whatever Happened to Kate Kane?” Batwoman returns for a second season with a new face behind the cowl and the departure of Kate Kane. I really don’t envy the writers of this show having to deal with Ruby Rose’ departure following a season of television that never actually got to finish. The previous season ended…

Wandavision – Season 1 Episode 1 & 2

Wandavision

The Marvel Cinematic universe begins its long delayed fourth phase with Wandavision; a mystery where the title characters are cast in roles commonly associated with 1950s sitcoms. It has been all quiet from the MCU in terms of output since Spider-Man: Far From Home thanks to some very severe mitigating factors but the return was…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 13

Discovery

“That Hope Is You Part 2” Star Trek: Discovery ends its third season with a resolution to the Su’Kal plot and a frantic race to retake the ship from Osyraa. Osyraa as a villain has been curiously handled over the season. She started out as a name that was periodically dropped to set up the…

“There is a Tide…” Star Trek: Discovery airs its penultimate episode with the ship under siege and an offer that could change the Federation forever.

Wonder Woman 1984

Wonder Woman

Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince returns in the long awaited sequel to battle magical forces and the greed of Humanity in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984. The first film is among the strongest entries in the recent DC comics adaptations and fans have been waiting for a follow-up for quite some time. Unfortunately the pandemic delayed…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 11

Discovery

“Su’Kal” Star Trek: Discovery reveals the source of The Burn and gives Tilly a trial by fire in the Captain’s chair. This won’t be new information to anyone who has read any of my reviews this season but I don’t find The Burn to be an engaging mystery. It’s a catastrophic event that happened prior…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 10

Discovery

“Terra Firma Part 2” Star Trek: Discovery continues to focus on Georgiou as she relives a significant time in her life. This episode has a mountain to climb going in as success is largely dependent on how much you can invest in the Mirror Universe. I’m of the opinion that the Mirror Universe is a…

“Terra Firma Part 1” Star Trek: Discovery devotes time to finding a solution to Georgiou’s problem as death quickly approaches for her. After all the posturing in the previous episode as to the cause of Georgiou’s issues it turns out the answer was nearby all along. All Culber had to do was ask the now…
