Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 1

“Event Horizon” Supergirl returns for a fifth season with a new costume for Kara and the beginnings of a cautionary tale against society’s reliance on technology. It’s fair to say that this show has never been subtle in its approach to exploring topics. Normally the writers are very heavy handed in delivering their stance on…

Batwoman – Season 1 Episode 1

Batwoman

“Pilot” The Arrowverse adds another superhero series to its quiver with the Gotham City set Batwoman. Kate Kane’s introduction in last year’s “Elseworlds” crossover was a strong showing for the character, at least in terms of how she might fit into the extensive shared universe that she was immediately a part of. Being able to…

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 10

Krypton

“The Alpha and the Omega” Krypton closes out its second season with a public challenge to Zod’s authority and setup for the next phase of the show. It’s safe to say that the production team have more or less given up on the notion of Krypton serving as a prequel to the Superman mythology. It…

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 9

Krypton

“Blood Moon” Krypton reunites Val and Seg as Zod aggressively steps up his plan to eradicate the rebellion by unleashing Doomsday. The promise of using Doomsday as a weapon against Zod’s enemies has been teased throughout the season and has been a significant fixture of recent episodes. Zod has devoted all of his energies into…

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 8

Krypton

“Mercy” Krypton introduces an important piece of Superman mythology as Zod’s impatience starts to get the best of him. Colin Salmon’s Zod is the definitive version of the character as far as I’m concerned. I’ve said it before and I will continue to say this. I’ve enjoyed every live action version of this character in one…

The 100 – Season 6 Episode 13

The 100

“The Blood of Sanctum” The 100 closes off its 6th season with the final battle between Wonkru and the Primes as well as posing the difficult question of where the characters go next. Looking back at this season as a whole it’s probably best described as transitional. The shift in setting has opened up the…

iZombie – Season 5 Episode 13

iZombie

“All’s Well That Ends Well” Audiences say goodbye to iZombie in its final episode that wraps up the Human/Zombie War plot and gives a taste of the future of the characters. Endings are never easy and rarely satisfying to the audience at large. I don’t envy Rob Thomas and his team who were tasked with coming…

iZombie – Season 5 Episode 12

iZombie

“Bye, Zombies” iZombie crosses another episode type off the bucket list for its penultimate outing by bringing audiences its take on the heist episode. The ubiquity of films like Ocean’s Eleven or Mission: Impossible have made the meticulously planned heist a mainstay in popular culture. Stylish montages outline the plan as visualised by the mastermind…

The 100 – Season 6 Episode 12

The 100

“Adjustment Protocol” Revolution in the air as the plan to infiltrate Sanctum begins to play out in the penultimate season 6 episode of The 100. After a more subdued and slow paced outing last week this episode has a much more kinetic action driven focus that presents a ticking clock to be fought against and…
