Rebecca confronts Sands. Limitless Finale Part Two!! Review

Limitless Finale Part Two!! Review

Limitless Finale: Part Two!! Review After a season of using a drug enhancing drug that changed his life, Brian Finch finally comes full circle. This week Brian is on his last legs to uncover where Sands is hiding Piper as his immunity from NZT slowly wears of. I enjoyed ‘Finale: Part Two!!’ (yes it does have 2 exclamation marks). The episode is not without its flaws, but Limitless manages to tap into its solid drama base that it has slowly been building up for over 22 episodes. The season finale starts off after the bombing of Morra’s people. Naz has...

Varys and Tyrion walking through Meereen. Game Of Thrones S6Ep1 The Red Woman Review

Game Of Thrones S6Ep1 The Red Woman Review

Game Of Thrones S6Ep1 The Red Woman Review Finally Game Of Thrones is back for a new season. I am starting to think there was no life before this show aired. The first episode of season 6, The Red Woman, is not show’s best, but when it is good it is very good. Read my overview/reap/review to decide for yourself if you should watch this show. Though you will never convince me you aren’t already. The Wall The episode begins right were it ended. Ser Daavos finds the body of Jon in the courtyard. With a few of Jon’s loyalist he...

Game Of Thrones Season 6 Preview. Arthur Dayne runs through a knight.

Game Of Thrones Season 6 Preview: Who lives and who will go full-frontal?

Game Of Thrones Season 6 Preview The sixth season of Game Of Thrones is almost upon us. The big question is. Where will the show take us now that it has almost overtaken the books? For the time being that question will remain unanswered. One thing is certain, with season 6 the pace of developments will increase. I think even die hard fans have a sense that even Game Of Thrones should in the next three seasons. Season 6 may well be the watershed season its predecessor failed to live up to. Not that season 5 was poor, but it...

The Magicians Season 1 Review

The Magicians Season 1 Review. A show to watch!

The Magicians Season 1 Review So the first season of The Magicians is over. In case you didn’t see it and are thinking of watching it let me give you a short spoiler-free review of why you SHOULD watch it. The Magicians is based on the novel by Lev Grossman. The story follows Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph) as he attends Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy, a school where he learns magic. Just in case you think this is some sort of Harry Potter, well at the end of the first episode the headmaster has his eyes gauged out by the mysterious antagonist known as...

Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson Quake. Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review.

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review!

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review This episode, Spacetime, puts our favorite Agents of SHIELD right in the thick of it. A restaurant owner calls the police in a blind panic after being touched by Charles Hinton, an Inhuman. This touch gives the owner a glimpse into his own future, and his death. Because the call to the police mentions Daisy and Hydra the owner is approached by SHIELD. However, the scene unfolds just as the man says it will be. Hydra swoops in, kills the restaurant owner and kidnaps Hinton. Just as Hinton is dragged in a cage into a helicopter...

The Flash and Supergirl.

Supergirl + The Flash crossover Worlds Finest Review

Supergirl + The Flash crossover Worlds Finest Review After watching Batman v Superman during the weekend the DC Universe is not done yet with tie-ins. Last evening Supergirl teamed up with The Flash on CBS. The result was an episode that made sense and was great fun, though it could not entirely hide the Supergirl silliness. A franchise crossover had been mulled for some time. At least two of Supergirl’s developers previously created Arrow and The Flash, both on The CW. I watch all three shows intermittently, they are not really sci-fi as much as they are fantasy/super-hero stuff. Yet, I do appreciate it when a good...

Jake McDorman as Brian Finch. Limitless S1Ep19 A Dog's Breakfast Review

Limitless S1Ep19 A Dog’s Breakfast Review!

Limitless S1Ep19 A Dog’s Breakfast Review! The first season of Limitless is quickly drawing to its close. After yesterday’s episode there are just three left. Here is a quick Limitless S1Ep19 A Dog’s Breakfast Review! So Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) rejoined the FBI task force after his return from his sojourn in Russia. The inevitable consequences aren’t ignored. Naz places serious restrictions on Brian: no private office, permanent guards who babysit him everywhere he goes and an oral exam to make sure he swallows the NZT pills. Meanwhile Rebecca continues to investigate Senator Morra’s right-hand man, Sands. She suspects him being behind many of the events...

Joan watches Everyone take clothes off. Elementary S4Ep17

Elementary S4Ep17 You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? Review

Elementary S4Ep17 You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? Review After a hiatus I thought it good again to review an episode of Elementary. This week the show has been moved to its new time-slot on Sunday evening. The reason given is that it will give a better lead into Sunday drama’s. We shall see. In You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? we finally see more development on Sherlock’s investigation into his father, though it is the killer-of-the-week story that makes up the real meat. Sadly, it may not be for everyone. The main killer-of-the-week story is about the hunt for the...

Colony S1Ep9 Zero Day Review. Will and Beau look at LA

Colony S1Ep9 Zero Day Review

Colony S1Ep9 Zero Day Review For the last few weeks I have been binging on Colony, the new Sci-fi mystery show on USA Network starring Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies. Colony is created by Carlton Cuse, who was also joint showrunner with David Lindelof for Lost. Recently he has also developed Bates Motel and is working on Jack Ryan, a series based on the character from the Tom Clancy novels. So, Colony is hardly lacking in quality, but somehow it took me more than two months to even entertain the notion of looking at the pilot episode. I suppose the fact the show didn’t...

Anna Torv to star in Mindhunter with David Fincher and Charlize Theron

Anna Torv to star in Netflix series Mindhunter produced by David Fincher

Mindhunter Ever since the end of Fringe in 2013 it has been quiet for Australian actress Anna Torv. She has starred in a few Australian productions but that’s it. A canceled TV show can have consequences but with her gravitas I hoped she would quickly star in another role. Now after almost 3 years she may get her break. Anna Torv is set to star in Mindhunter, a series produced by David Fincher and Charlize Theron for Netflix. Torv will play a psychologist, possibly called Wendy, who joins a team of crack psychologist at the FBI that track down serial...

Closing the Zero matter rift. Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review.

Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review

Agent Carter S2Ep10 Hollywood Ending Review With Agents of SHIELD on its mid-season hiatus fans of Marvel have instead been shown Agent Carter. After a successful first season in which the show proofed it could be better than even SHIELD expectations were high for its new season. It is difficult to say whether Agent Carter has succeeded. In many ways the story, now set in L.A., was even darker than its first. Yet. the drama was also too often interrupted by silliness masquerading as humor. Too often the sexism of the 40’s made way for the juvenile antics of Howard...

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, but its starting to feel as if there will be no end to the show. I suppose that’s the problem...

Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes. Elementary S4Ep14 Who Is That Masked Man Review

Elementary S4Ep14 Who Is That Masked Man Review

Elementary S4Ep14 Who Is That Masked Man Review In this weeks episode, Who Is That Masked Man, Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson investigate a triple homicide. Yet it is the continued investigation in Sherlock’s father Morland that provides drama, mystery and even a hint of sympathy for both as they the issue that separates them, Sherlock’s mother. The episode starts in a farm house near Montreal Canada. Watson, pretending to be a hot Quebecois dame called Nicolette lets herself into the house of the daughter of the woman who was murdered in the attempt on Morland’s life, Sabine. A furious Morland quickly confronts Sherlock and...

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. Creator Chris Carter may have made his life more difficult by producing a small season. After the show officially ended...

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 homeless people a federal relocation representative is mysteriously murdered. His arms and head are severed by an impossibly strong man who, as...

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 power. That said, I have been enjoying these last few weeks. With Liz now being a convicted criminal her life...
