With this being a shortened week for Thanksgiving break, we thought we would do something a bit different. Hopefully when we all return refreshed from the holidays, we will be able to hit the ground running as the production side of pilot season kicks into high gear!
Things are completely spiraling out of control for Meeks in this week’s Manhattan. He’s always been over his head doing his spy thing, but the noose tightens and the whole camp is looking for a spy and murderer.
Today’s episode of The Grinder was one of the best the series has yet to offer. It featured more hard jokes, weird/interesting plots and a break from form that was totally unexpected.
Two-thirds of the way through its first season, Scream Queens is starting to run out of steam. And even though it opens with a character death, the horror elements are all but gone.
If you’re getting advice from your best friend who describes and compares her relationship to The Walking Dead and describes it as just trying to make it out alive, chances are he or she are probably not thriving in the romance department.
Logline: A woman raised by serial killers uses the dark web to deliver her own brand of justice.
I have to say that, though still outstanding, last night’s episode of FARGO was probably my least favorite of the bunch so far. The cast killed it, the story went in interesting directions, and I was still as captivated as ever when the credits rolled, but there were no standout moments I couldn’t wait to write about.
Focuses on time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter, who has to recruit a rag-tag team of heroes and villains to help prevent an apocalypse that could impact not only Earth, but all of time.
“How Does She Do It” centers on Kara working with the DEO to find out where and why multiple explosives are being set off around the city, while simultaneously attempting to babysit her boss’s son. As always, there’s a great deal of potential, and Supergirl is close–very close–to figuring out its formula.
We find out a little more about the mysterious monks when they take to the streets of Gotham, murdering thugs and low-lifes, while Galavan hunts a very specific target, “The Son of Gotham.”
It took this show long enough, but finally it seems to have found its rhythm with this mid-season finale episode. Blindspot managed to tie all the threads it had been building into a neat bow, resolving questions that could really have been solved several tv hours ago, and resetting the premise for what’s to come a few months from now.
It’s too bad things turned out this way for Minority Report. If you look at the source material it held so much promise for a television series, but it was unfortunately white washed and squandered for this sterile surrogate we’re left with.
It’s easy to take Marvel offerings for granted. Market saturation and the illusion of action-thriller sameness make them easy to dismiss as commercial garbage. That would be a mistake, especially in the case of Jessica Jones.
The Walking Dead sends us a Heads Up about a new walker disaster for Alexandria. It can’t be easy producing a show about a devastating plague and the homicidal survivors left behind, especially when the world we actually live in proves to be more treacherous and deadly. It feels good to see Glenn prevail against an impossible crush of walkers.
Get ready for a wild ride as this week’s episode of The Leftovers follows Kevin while he does battle with Patti. It’s a wonderful episode filled with dream logic, bizarre twists and turns, and a redemption that’s both weird and wonderful.
This entire season of Doctor Who there has been a buzz around Clara leaving the show and how it would happen. Tonight was a fitting good-bye to the impossible girl who turned impossibly reckless.
Netflix announced that they are working on a reboot of the CBS television series Lost In Space, while Noah Hawley is set to tackle Vonnegut for FX. Plus, a round-up of the shows that went into development at the networks this week.
This was the week in which Sleepy took some risks and endangered our intrepid protagonists, by putting them up against a god
Three episodes to go, and Heroes Reborn is getting a little flustered. I guess you can’t really fault Heroes Reborn for being a show in which stuff happens, but then again you can listen to your grandparents natter on for hours and not learn anything new.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. CW’s massive The Flash and Arrow crossover event begins Tuesday, December 1st.
The Tracking Board has a conversation with Good Girls Revolt creator Dana Calvo about breaking in, her timely new Amazon series, and why it’s the “single most rewarding thing” she has ever done in her career.
Compared to the travesty that was last week’s Moonbeam City, this week’s was much better. There are funny moments, the plot makes (relative) sense, and nothing about the episode is damning enough to write it off. And yet this episode reveals the flaws of Moonbeam City much more than its predecessor.
My opinion has a taken a turn in a decidedly uninteresting direction. It’s exploring the annals of government agencies instead of the NZT community. The show is exploring the same themes as many other drama shows.
No time was wasted in introducing this weeks guest star, Chelsea Handler, who is widely known for her former talk show Chelsea Lately. Sure, it brought a good element to The Muppets, but honestly, it just didn’t work.
Louis plans the first family “Huangsgiving” on Fresh Off The Boat. Every year, Jessica’s mother has a pre-dawn ritual to decide where the family will gather for Thanksgiving. Connie has ended up hosting every year in the past, but this year is different.
This week focuses on celebrity treatment – what that means to both the individual and their peers. Too often we see TV make fun of the pompous has-been actor, but it’s been a breath of fresh air to follow the journey of an actor who just wants to be a normal person.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. offers up “Many Heads, One Tale” like the magnum opus of a master weaver, taking the literally six or seven season plots and tying them all together so neatly it almost feels deterministic. This season is a hot mess, so I love that everything has finally come together, even if it does feel like a foregone conclusion.
