What if God abdicated his throne, fled from Heaven, and chose to live among us on Earth? What supernatural or otherworldly phenomena would spawn if an angel and a demon were to have a forbidden tryst? What happens when a man of God gains the Almighty’s voice and can direct and command anyone at will? And when this individual, who has been cursed with this unexpected power over others, learns of God’s vanishing… how far will he go to confront his maker and demand some answers?
This is Preacher. (more…)
In Monday night’s Person of Interest, the series proved that even when it’s under the gun of an ambiguous future with a limited run of 13 episodes and while dealing with topical and serious techno-drama, it can still kick back and have a lot of fun too. In the spirit of episodes like “Bury the Lede”, “Booked Solid”, and “Most Likely To…”, Person of Interest once again skated the fine line of action, drama and farce as Team Machine gets dressed up for a wedding out of town. Despite the stakes of saving a number that may or may not be the bride and/or groom, this wedding was an uproarious, enjoyable affair which is the complete opposite of most weddings. (more…)
Last week on Gotham, things were coming to a head. Bruce and Lucius had been kidnapped by Hugo Strange and left at the mercy of Edward Nygma. Selina was setting herself up as Firefly’s sidekick. Fish Mooney was brought back from the dead and filled with the power to make people obey her. And Hugo Strange was evacuating his experiments and getting ready to blow Arkham Asylum sky-high. This week is the season finale, so the writers have to wrap all that up in a nice, neat package. But did ‘Transference’ deliver? Not as well as it could have, that’s for sure. Read on for more.

This week on Penny Dreadful, it was time for the annual get Eva Green an Emmy episode. Dollars to donuts, this will be actresses submission piece for this year in the tradition of “The Nightcomers” and “Closer Than Sisters”, by delving into Vanessa’s backstory and revel in her eternal struggle between the good and the evil within her; the pious and the decidedly less than pious aspects of her soul. Sure, the pronounced point of the episode was to reveal when and how Vanessa and Dracula first crossed paths, but let’s be honest “A Blade of Grass” was all about Green showing her range. (more…)
This week’s Game of Thrones episode “The Door” continues the streak of captivating episodes this season. We got to meet a new Red Lady, who seems to know more than Melisandre. Civil war is brewing for in the North, and they are definitely developing in the Iron Islands. Arya got a taste of her life as a comedy play. Danny had to say goodbye to one of her closest advisers, and we all tearfully said goodbye to someone near and dear to us all

Well, it’s finally here. Preacher has been in the works, for good or for evil, for a while now and tonight we had the opportunity, courtesy of AMC, to see the first episode. I was, like many others, pretty damned skeptical about this one. I loved the Preacher books back when I read them (many years ago) and I didn’t want to see them turn Garth Ennis’s work into a piece of shit only fit to flushed down the toiler and forgotten about. After sitting through the hour-long ‘Pilot‘, however, I feel I may be soon changing my tune. Preacher turned out to be highly entertaining, despite all the obvious changes to the storyline. Scroll on for a short recap and review.

It’s tough being the CW, they already have so many successful programs that they only picked up three for the fall, and only two of them will debut in October. The odd man out is Archie. Well, make that Riverdale, the new CW series based on the long-running comic book character and his friends from super-producer Greg Berlanti (whose superhero series make up 40 per cent of the CW’s fall programming). You’ve heard for a while that this is not going to be your mother’s Archies, as Berlanti and Co. were going for something “modern”, “dark”, and “subversive”. Prepare to click all three boxes as you sink into the sorted and scandalous world of Riverdale. (more…)
As the first season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow came to a close last night, we wrapped up the Vandal Savage storyline. While Rip Hunter’s original mission of stopping Savage from killing his wife and child did not go as expected, now the mission has expanded. Rip Hunter realizes that since they have stopped the corrupt Time Masters, there needs to be a new group of people to safeguard time. While some of the Legends will not be returning: Kendra & Carter retiring and Snart died, the show must go on. The finale ended with a very interesting cliffhanger and helps set up an even larger universe, many are suspecting where the show could go moving forward.
Oh what a contentious season of The 100 this has been. There have been deaths as big as they have been controversial, there have been rushed storylines, and sudden betrayals by beloved characters, but it all comes down to this final hour and the effort to save the world from A.L.I.E., the bad artificial intelligence with good intentions. As these things go – 100 finales that is – everyone is on the brink of death and defeat waiting for Clarke to pull a last minute rabbit out of her hat, and this one sees the Commander of Death go into the Matrix to look the enemy in her face and perhaps accept a fate worse potential, and immediate, death.

The trailer for NBC‘s new DC non-super-powered-super-hero series Powerless has hit the Internet. Probably a good idea to check it out quick as it is likely to be pulled down as soon as NBC’s lawyers get the call, or maybe after the pilot airs, you be the judge. Starring Vanessa Hudgens, the series focuses on an insurance company that handles many of the claims after those epic and not so epic superhero battles. (more…)
