Almost one year to the day of the closure of season four, Person of Interest has begun its fifth and final season, and to add insult to injury, you regret the fact that there are only 13 episodes left in the show within the first 50 seconds of “B.S.O.D.” Root’s narration and the corresponding shot of the subway hideout, where it looks like something highly consequential has gone down, certainly was a compelling lure, which we now realize may not be fully realized thanks to CBS’ shortsightedness. Still, the season premiere sent a pretty firm statement that if Person of Interest has got to go out this season, then it’s going to go out with a bang! (more…)
All season long, The Flash has been nothing but consistent. With the possible exception of last week’s episode, each episode has told a story within a story and has done an exceptional job not missing a beat. This week’s episode, titled “Rupture,” could have easily been the season finale. With that said, it’s amazing to believe that there are still three more episodes left until the end. For now, fans will have to deal with the consequences of this episode. How to deal with it, though, is the ultimate question and the answer may be hard to come by.
Last week on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the team was out trying to get something done and failing on every front. They wanted to find a way to cure Daisy of Hive’s influence – Nope. They needed the help of a geneticist in order to possibly kill Hive – Nope. They even tried to track Hive down and give him an ass-whoopin’ – Sorry, no deal. This week, it’s another showdown between the teams, this one involving some Kree warriors, straight from space. Scroll on to read the review for ‘Failed Experiments’ below. (more…)
Last week on Gotham, Gordon and the team were out looking for clues as to who might have employed the assassin who killed Bruce’s parents. In the process, they learned all about Pinewood Farms, a series of genetic experiments initiated by Bruce’s father. They also, with the help of one of those experiments, managed to uncover the fact that Hugo Strange was the brain behind the mad science. This week, Strange gets annoyed with all those people digging into his past and strikes back via the power of a newly resurrected Theo Galavan, AKA Azrael. Scroll on to see what ‘Azrael’ brought to the table. (more…)
So once upon a time, we started a joke that started the whole world clamoring for a Netflix Dredd series. It was April Fool’s, and we were young and salty, but who would have guess that years later – YEARS! – that article still would have been quoted as a legit thing that was possibly in the works. So keeping all that in mind, there’s some news from the weekend that seems to indicate that the idea at the heart of that joke may become a reality. A real player, with the real Dredd, recently indicated to fans that there may be doings transpiring in regards to a Dredd series. (more…)
A notice of filming was passed around to businesses in the downtown core, a new TV series called Mister Chocolates would be here for a couple of days in the first week of May to film on the main street in Guelph, Ontario. The Mister Chocolates logo at the top of the notice was in cursive, and decorated with a cute little handle-bar moustache between the words “Mister” and “Chocolates,” a series described as “a tale of two friends as they travel across the American Midwest.” Why did that sound familiar… (more…)
Last season of Game of Thrones ended with a fabulous stabbing scene that left Jon Snow bleeding in the snow, surrounded by traitorous men of the Night Watch lead by Ser Alliser Thorne. Fans went ape-shite and the Internet followed. During the months between then, and last night’s episode, fans debated Snow’s fate, was he really dead, would he be brought back somehow? Now we know and Kit Harrington, who spent the summer repeating repeatedly that Jon Snow was dead, has a bit of an apology for fans.

It’s strange to say, but to kick off this third season of Penny Dreadful things almost seem normal. Although our characters are touched by the supernatural, they all just seemed to be going through the motions in “The Day Tennyson Died,” which itself was a day far from the ordinary in British lore. The day Alfred, Lord Tennyson died – October 6, 1892 – it was like a piece of Victorian England died with him, his standing and influence in Great Britain was as pronounced then as it is today. With a pall cast over the city of London, it’s appropriate then that we catch up with our heroine who’s cast a pall over herself. Alone in England as strange things start to happen again. (more…)
After a yearlong absence, we got to find out what’s been going on with Bran Stark north of the wall. We even got to hear a few more words from Hodor. Ramsay Bolton continues to piss us off even more than Joffrey. Tyrion went dragon hunting. Someone met the drowned God over at the Iron Isles. Since last week was a “set up episode,” and now that everything is set up for the season, now everything’s going in full motion. Needless to say, this was a very exciting episode of Game of Thrones!!
Warning: This article contains spoilers from the Game of Thrones Season 6 episode “Home.”
