Swamp Thing will raise them bones on the CW... kind of

Just when you thought the saga of Swamp Thing was done, somehow it manages to crop up again in the oddest of ways. Last year, DC Universe premiered their premiere horror title Swamp Thing to modest praise, but it was everything else surroun...

Doctor Who Recap (Season 12, Episode 3)

This week Doctor Who saw our heroes on vacation on the planet known as Orphan 55. Let’s be honest, after last week, the Doctor really needed a holiday. Of course, as with nearly all of the Doctor’s relaxation time...

Recap: Doctor Who (Season 12, Episode 2)

Last week, we were left with the Doctor in a precarious position. She was trapped in a mysterious place. Meanwhile, her companions were in a plane moving rapidly towards the ground (and without a cockpit, to boot). This week, the Doctor is ...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 8 - The Redemption

When looking at the individual episodes of a television show, especially with a property so carefully-managed like Star Wars, it's hard to find any sort of distinct authorship in the filmmaking of any of them. So imagine my surprise when I ...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 7 - The Reckoning

After episodes of world-building, character-building, and who-knows-what-else, The Mandalorian season one finally rounds back to the inciting incident for the show. I've been suspicious of this show gathering all of these prominent guest st...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 6 - The Prisoner

One of the clear strengths of The Mandalorian, especially in the earlier episodes, is that the eponymous character is not perfect—far from it. He trips, falls down, gets shot, gets covered in mud, and so on. We love an underdog. But i...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 5 - The Gunslinger

Generally, I abhor the term "filler" when it comes to television. Even when an episode doesn't make too many strides in long-term plot development, I usually feel like I get something out of the experience—perhaps it fleshes out a cha...

Review: Runaways (Season 3)

"I hate how the rules of this world keeps changing," says Nico Minoru at one point in the third and final season of Marvel's Runaways. It's a really easy quote to apply to the entire season, which continued the last season's trajectory of t...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 4 - Sanctuary

If anyone watching The Mandalorian had somehow missed that this show was a Western, here is an episode that is pretty blatant with all of the associated tropes. In what was basically The Magnificent Seven in space, Mando has become the "Man...

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Season 14

It's surprising to see a show like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia still on the air in 2019. Never one to shy away from controversial topics, the series has made a name for itself by featuring some of the "worst" characters ever committed...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 3 - The Sin

It has been hard to see most of the Star Wars stuff in the Disney era to be nothing more than homages to the original trilogy. With The Mandalorian, I feel as if fans are getting more of a remix across all Star Wars eras in a way we've neve...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 2 - The Child

So this is the kind of show The Mandalorian will be, eh? After an intriguing series premiere, the second episode of this Star Wars Disney+ original is more of a small step in terms of plot, one that doesn't move the story significantly forw...

Marvel's Runaways third season will be its last on Hulu

There goes the neighborhood. While many assumed that Marvel Television's Runaways was safe from the cancellation purge that took the Netflix-Marvel shows, a new trailer casually dropped the fact that this season of the Hulu superhero teen ...

Recap: The Mandalorian (Season 1, Episode 1)

Star Wars was never meant to be a giant pop culture phenomenon, nor was it envisioned as a prime example of the capitalist Hollywood nightmare we now live in. Yet despite the flaws and missteps of this gargantuan franchise, I've always beli...

Review: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (Season 4)

Here's the thing; I could spend a few paragraphs waxing poetic about how She-Ra has continued to get better and better the longer it runs or talk about how the series has exploded in popularity in the short year it's been on the air, but th...
