Five episodes in, how does the second season of Dark Matter rate against the first? Reviews on first season were mixed. The story is dark and the characters are not heroes. They do make questionable choices at time, but I find the writers handle those dilemmas well and the second season is even better than the first one. [Read more…]
True Confession: I wasn’t sure if this was going to be something I’d enjoy – because I still kid myself that I can ignore anything even remotely connected to Sherlock Holmes – and so decided to watch Houdini & Doyle pretty much at the last minute. And I’m glad I did. [Read more…]
Warning: There could be spoilers for the first 5 episodes, so tread lightly
The theme for Season 2 most definitely is “2.0”, because everything we know either has been rebooted continuing from last season’s finale, through a slew of changes that continue right to the end of the Season 2 premiere. [Read more…]
I’m a big fan of the Berlanti Superhero Factory. Greg Berlanti knows how to make superhero shows (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl) and make them well. Every author has those daydreams about who they’d want to adapt their books. For me and for TV, Greg Berlanti is my dream dude. So I’m predisposed to like Legends of Tomorrow because it’s coming from a production company I have a lot of faith in. [Read more…]
Oh to be young, handsome, in the City of Angels, and in love. Being the Devil doesn’t hurt, either.
The premise of Lucifer is simple – it’s Death Takes a Holiday crossed with your choice of Castle, Sleepy Hollow, or Elementary. [Read more…]
Peggy Carter is fast becoming one of my all-time favorite Marvel heroes. And Agent Carter Season Two is the reason why.
Agent Carter follows the exploits and adventures of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), she of the first Captain America movie, aka Cap’s first true love. But Peggy was then and is now not just someone’s “best girl”. She’s smart, savvy, brave, bold, adventuresome, and a hero in her own right. [Read more…]
I looked forward to watching it every week, and I’m sure I’ll buy the Blu-ray when it’s released. This is a show I carried with me while it aired, and now that it’s over, I frequently think back on it. I love the characters. They are wonderful people. I wish they were real and that I could join them on their adventures. Despite its flaws, The Shannara Chronicles invites you into a fantastical world that you will never want to leave. [Read more…]
Galavant Season Two is fun, funny, tuneful, and, at its core, extremely romantic. For me it’s an absolute must see and I have all the digits crossed that we’ll get Season Three sooner as opposed to later. [Read more…]
Full disclosure: I’ve never read the books, and I actually gave Shadowhunters 7 episodes instead of the typical 5, just to extended the benefit of the doubt as far as possible. Even with the extra 2 episodes, I still didn’t find that bit of magic, that I was looking for — a real story hook and compelling characters.
Also, here there may be spoilers. [Read more…]
Supergirl, just like its home city, is definitely on the sunny side of the superhero street, but I like that and it’s a relief to see people who smile more than they frown. Yes, it’s somewhat campy, but so is The Flash and that’s fine. They can’t all be Arrow and Gotham, at least not for me. I’ve enjoyed every episode and can’t wait for more. Long may Supergirl fly.

If Archer and Miami Vice had a baby, gave that baby nothing but hard drugs, had that baby live in a world designed by Patrick Nagel (who designed the iconic Duran Duran “Rio” album cover), and hired South Park to be the baby’s sitter, that baby would be named Moonbeam City. [Read more…]
