The Expanse – Season 5 Episode 4

“Gaugamela” After a character-heavy opening of season 5, The Expanse shifts gears into an action-oriented chapter as a revolutionary killer’s plan of fear and destruction is put into motion. The bulk of my last review was built on The Expanse generally being heavily geared towards the characterisation of its main players, both central and supporting,…

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…

The Expanse – Season 5 Episode 1-3

“Exodus”, “Churn”, “Mother” The Expanse makes a welcome return to our streaming screens, and true to its name expands its vision of the technologically advanced far future where human foibles remain unchanged even after the passing centuries. When reviewing TV shows, it’s normally straightforward to decide the manner in which you do so, as they…

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…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 9

Discovery

“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…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 8

Discovery

“The Sanctuary” Star Trek: Discovery introduces the villainous Osyraa and presents a difficult situation for the Discovery crew to navigate. So far this season has had an issue with world building in that elements are introduced and not covered in any great detail. The Emerald Chain have been referenced a lot and used as an antagonist…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 7

Discovery

“Unification III” Star Trek: Discovery visits what used to be known as the Vulcans in search for more information that could unravel the mystery of The Burn. The fact that The Burn propels so much of the storytelling in this season is something I find immensely problematic. Mileage will definitely vary but I don’t find…

Supernatural – Season 15 Episode 20

Supernatural

“Carry On” Supernatural ends its historic 15 year run with one last hunt and the end of the road for the Winchester brothers. Endings are hard. Chuck/God said that in the season 5 finale “Swan Song” and he was completely right. Ending something that people have a strong connection to is no easy task because…

Star Trek: Discovery – Season 3 Episode 6

Discovery

“Scavengers” Star Trek: Discovery sees Burnham go Rogue in order to rescue Book and track down intelligence that could be pivotal in learning the cause of The Burn. I find myself consistently in two minds about this season. On one hand I’m largely on board with the return to episodic storytelling with character based threads…

Supernatural – Season 15 Episode 19

Supernatural

“Inherit The Earth” Supernatural approaches its end with an empty Earth and the constant threat of God looming over the Winchesters. The previous episode ended at the lowest point Sam and Dean have ever known with Castiel’s death and God removing every other living being on Earth. The second part wasn’t explicitly confirmed until the…
