Arriving at Hilltop. The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie - a short opinion

The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie – a short opinion

The Walking Dead S6Ep11 Knots Untie – a short opinion This weeks episode of The Walking Dead sets the scene for the final confrontation with Negan, a character whose introduction fans dreaded because of whom he kills in the comics. Looking beyond Negan is the confrontation with The Whisperer’s, something for season 7 I guess. Sadly, I am starting to feel fatigued by the series. This week’s episode may have again pivoted the series, now towards the Hilltop settlement and its leader Gregory,...

The X-Files S10Ep6 My Struggle II Preview

The X-Files S10Ep6 My Struggle II Preview

The X-Files S10Ep6 My Struggle II Preview This evening the last episode of The X-Files revival will air on Fox. The sixth episode, entitled My Struggle II, will conclude the tenth season with a story focused on the conspiracy. So far, that has not been the high-point of the season which started somewhat underwhelming. If, however, the last episode ends up being a good one the question arises whether or not the show should continue. I for one think it should....

Scully and Mulder talk about William. X-Files S10E04 Home Again Review

X-Files S10E04 Home Again Review

X-Files S10E04 Home Again Review After last weeks excellent episode few had the expectation that Home Again would be just as good. Fox had already chosen to switch around this episode with the previous to make up for the first two. Don’t get me wrong. They were good episodes, but not brilliant. The same can be said for Home Again. It is essentially a ‘Monster-of-the-week’ episode that starts very familiar. In the midst of a dispute about relocating as group of...

Alistair Pitt makes the deal. The Blacklist S3Ep13 Alistair Pitt Review

The Blacklist S3Ep13 Alistair Pitt Review

The Blacklist S3Ep13 Alistair Pitt Review After the death of The Director, and the peace deal between Reddington (James Spader) and the Cabal, The Blacklist has to re-invent itself. So far, it seems to be more of the same. Reddington is up against an international power struggle in which the Cabal is only one faction. As a viewer I started feeling skeptical about the direction the show took. I mean, how realistic is it to assume there are secret organizations vying for...

Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar

A review of Fox’s Lucifer first episode

A review of Fox’s Lucifer first episode On January 25th Fox’s latest TV show will air. Lucifer stars Tom Ellis’s as you may guess, Lucifer… The Lord of Hell. The shows is loosely based on the comic-book character created by Neil Gaiman which was developed into its own spin-off book series Lucifer written by Mike Carey. Lucifer is hard to categorize. In the pilot episode we see Tom Ellis’s title character attempt to solve the murder of his sweetheart Delilah. He is also...

Cas Anvar as Alex Kamal. The Expanse S1E07 Windmills Review

The Expanse S1E07 Windmills Review

The Expanse S1E07 Windmills Review Last week The Expanse set out to increase the scope of the story. The crew of the Rocinante set out from Tycho station, their Martian ship disguised as freighter, to Eros to try and uncover who attacked the Scopuli and The Canterbury. The trip was difficult to begin with, but with the Martian fleet on patrol and a stowaway spy transmitting messages it is almost made impossible. When a Martian skiff demands to board the ship the crew...

Person Of Interest Season 5 cancelled

Person Of Interest Season 5 its last says J.J. Abrams

Person Of Interest Season 5 its last! Hot off the success of The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams has made some surprising statements. One of which was sort of expected but is still sad. Person of Interest season 5 may well be its last. At the Television Critics Association Abrams told reporters Saturday that “My guess is it is the final season. The only heartbreak there is how much good story there was to come if it were to have continued. Jonah [Nolan] and Greg...

Watson pursued by the The Abominable Bride

Sherlock The Abominable Bride Review

The Abominable Bride Finally after an absence of 2 years Sherlock has returned. The series, created by Steven Moffat and John Gatiss, has been a fan favorite since its first season aired in 2010. The second season, which expanded the cast to include Lara Pulver, solidified the show’s reputation and that of actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Sadly, the third season missed the spot for me. Those episodes could be best described as boring, convoluted and missing the mystery...
