Sonya Walger as Angela White - Elementary The Five Orange Pipz

Elementary The Five Orange Pipz Review

Elementary The Five Orange Pipz….. The second episode of Elementary’s third continues the pseudo-feud between Holmes and Watson. However, unlike that real feud from season 2 between detective Bell and Sherlock over the shooting incident this one is practically over by the end of the episode. After a man named Elias Openshaw is shot to death while on the phone with Captain Gregson (who was investigating the death of Openshaw’s lawyer) Watson beats Sherlock to be the first to take up the case....

Mozhan Marnò as Samar Navabi capturing Hassan - The Blacklist S2ep7 The Scimitar Review

The Blacklist S2ep7 The Scimitar Review

So far the second season of The Blacklist has been a hit-or-miss affaire. Last week’s episode The Mombasa Cartel never really managed to engage with its audience. The week before that we had The Front, which was about a resurgent eco-terrorist group hunting down poachers and turning them into waxwork. The creepiness factor reminded me of The Stewmaker, but no more than that. This weeks episode entitled The Scimitar is about a Iranian operation intent on taking revenge on the US...

Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) wearing a gas mask - elementary s3ep1 review

Elementary S3Ep1 Review Enough Nemesis To Go Around

Welcome to the review of the season 3 première episode of Elementary entitled ‘Enough Nemesis To Go Around’. After a second season which attempted changes , both successfully and not, Elementary was turned on its head by show runner Robert Doherty when he decided Joan Watson and Sherlock Holmes would discontinue their partnership. Having recently rewatched the shows pilot episode I am amazed at the growth both characters have made in two years. That growth is also at risk of becoming stale if changes were not...

Grant Ward planning his escape - Agents Of SHIELD S2Ep6 A Fractured House Review

Agents Of SHIELD S2Ep6 A Fractured House Review

Since the beginning of Agents of SHIELD’s second season the question of whether government organizations would hunt down SHIELD has been mentioned. Certainly General Talbot appeared keen to do so but if anything his attempts were only half-hearted, in fact he seems to have built up a rapport with Coulson over their mutual enemy HYDRA. In this weeks episode, A Fractured House, HYDRA commits a false flag attack on the UN in retaliation over last weeks events. Though Talbot appears skeptical...

Abraham leaving with Eugene and Glenn - The Walking Dead S5Ep3 Four Walls and a Roof Review

The Walking Dead S5Ep3 Four Walls and a Roof Review

This week’s episode TWD was hotly anticipated, the previous episode ‘Strangers’ ended on a significant cliffhanger. Was Bob infected by walker? Will Gareth die when he eats Bob’s meat? And what the hell are Daryl and Carol up to chasing Beth’s kidnapper? The latter issues won’t be resolved in ‘Four Walls and a Roof’ which deals primarily with Gareth’s attempt to kill and eat everyone in Rick’s group and Gabriel admission of what he had to do to stay alive. It...

Helix Season 2 Teaser Trailer Logo

Helix Season 2 Teaser Trailer

Syfy has just released a teaser trailer for the upcoming second season of Helix, the high-concept show produced by BSG guru Ronald D. Moore. The first season proofed it had a lot of promise, but it could at times be burdened by the cumbersome backstory that had to be told of how Dr. Alan Farragut (played by Billy Campbell) deals with a viral outbreak at a remote arctic research station. The 13 episodes could also differ in quality especially near the...

Avengers Age Of Ultron Trailer Released - Super Iron Man suit

Avengers Age Of Ultron Trailer Released

Due to the leak of an copy of the Avengers Age Of Ultron trailer online Marvel has decided to officially release it a week earlier. Set to the tune of an alternate version of Pinocchio’s ‘there are no strings on me’ we have a 2 minute and 16 second Ultron fest. The Avengers by comparison seem defeated and divided, but of course it wouldn’t be a movie if the superheroes aren’t rock bottom during the story. At this stage it is too early...

Harold Finch testing The Machine in 2001 (Michael Emerson)

Person of Interest S4Ep5 Prophets Review

For a few weeks now viewers have been able to enjoy the new format of Person Of Interest. With Finch, Reese, Shaw and Root hiding from Samaritan the series has become more dynamic. It reminds me a lot of the first season when Reese was not yet the Superman caricature he became during season 2. This episode entitled ‘Prophets’ sticks to the new format while also forcing Reese to deal with his alternate persona when he is forced to undergo psychiatric...

The Walking Dead S5Ep2 Strangers Review - Gareth has amputated Bob's leg

The Walking Dead S5Ep2 Strangers Review

After the blood-letting during the season première of The Walking Dead the pace is slowed. Somehow the uncertainty of the circumstances in which Rick and the gang now live are made worse by that slow pace. Don’t be a stranger……… As the gang moves away from Terminus they come across father Gabriel, a priest who has been living alone since the outbreak started. Rick questions how he could have survived and assumes he has been holding back on them. After they reach his...

Sleepy Hollow S2Ep4 Go Where I Send Thee... Review - Ichabod puts in his magic earbud

Sleepy Hollow S2Ep4 Go Where I Send Thee… Review

Whereas Haven has nearly gone the way of the dodo after a very bad start to season 5 Sleepy Hollow seems able to learn from its first season mistakes. Slowly this show is finding solid ground. Characters such as Henry, the Horseman of War, as well as Katrina Crane and Abraham Van Brunt have been given more screen time to flesh out their character. Suddenly it feels like the stakes have become all that more real. While Sleepy Hollow is still undeniable a light-hearted...

The Walking Dead S5Ep1 No Sanctuary Review - Throat slit like cattle

The Walking Dead S5Ep1 No Sanctuary Review

I have been an avid fan of TWD since its inception as a TV series. I will admit to not having read the comic books but I do keep up with its progress. TWD is certainly not for the faint hearted, and I am not talking about the zombies, the gore or the physical abuse. I am talking about the drama and suspense. Fan favorite characters do get killed and the audience is frequently left in the dark about pertinent developments. Knowing that the...

Coulson visits Simmons - Agents of SHIELD S2Ep3 Making Friends and Influencing People Review

Agents of SHIELD S2Ep3 Making Friends and Influencing People Review

This week’s episode of Agents of SHIELD is entitled ‘Making Friends and Influencing People’ but a better title might have been ‘What Simmons did’. Ever since the season premier two weeks ago fans have been near irate about the sudden disappearance of Elizabeth Henstridge‘s character Jemma Simmons. Some saw it is a prelude to write her character out of the show along with Fitz. Simmons has never been my favorite character, with both her and Fitz there was something too arrogant in...

The Blacklist S2Ep3 Dr. James Covington (No. 89) Review

This episode Dr. James Covington (No. 89) starts with Keen having a nightmare about Tom and Reddington. Tom argues that Red will kill her if she gets too close to the truth about what happened on the night of the fire. Keen is also bothered by a man whom she suspects is stalking her at the various motels she is staying. The next morning Red warns her of Dr. James Covington, a disgraced heart surgeon, who may be running a heart...
