Supergirl Season 1, Episode 11 Recap and Review – ‘Strange Visitors From Another Planet’

I often don’t comment on the juxtapositions that Supergirl employs each week. The dark and serious world of the DEO versus the bright and sunny CatCo often clash together. I suppose one opposite in the life of Kara Danvers seems more significant than the other when said aloud — no one ever said leading the double life of a...

Marvel’s Agent Carter Season 2 Premiere Recap and Review

Agent Peggy Carter is back and is ready to take California by the chutzpah. We step away from the drab concrete jungle that is Manhattan, rife with office misogyny, and into the glamorous and colorful land of moving pictures, rife with a far more sinister brand of sexism. Luckily, Peggy doesn’t have to bother herself with nearly as much of...

Supergirl Season 1, Episode 10 Recap and Review – ‘Childish Things’

Poor, poor Winn. He’s hopelessly in love with Kara, and the only one not privy to those feelings is Kara herself. Adding on to his emotional conflicts is his father (Henry Czerny), whom Winn only mentioned was in prison. In “Childish Things,” it is revealed that Winn’s father is the Toyman, a madman who uses toys as...

Steven Universe Fans in the UK Petitioning to Keep the Show Gay

Steven Universe is lauded as one of the few cartoon shows that openly celebrate the gay community. We were all by surprised when they revealed in the episode “Jail Break” that Garnet is a fusion between two other gems who are in love with each other. This is huge considering that the Crystal Gems (and all Gems for that matter)...

Supergirl Season 1, Episode 9 Recap and Review – ‘Blood Bonds’

Welcome to the new year, Legion! “Blood Bonds” picks up right where “Hostile Takeover” leaves off, the showdown between Supergirl and Astra’s husband, Non. During the break, I had some time to think about the series (so far) as a whole. Overall speaking, Supergirl is not exactly a well put together show, plot wise...

Supergirl Season 1, Episode 8 Recap and Review – ‘Hostile Takeover’

This week on Supergirl, one would hardly recognize “Hostile Takeover” as a winter finale. Both A and B stories seem lopsided. Astra’s methods of “saving the Earth” from unknown destruction seem to heavily outweigh the very human “crisis” of a hacker using embarrassing emails to try getting Cat Grant to...

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 13 Recap and Review – ‘AKA Smile’

It’s a crossover episode! Sort of. I completely forgot Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson) is supposed to show up in Jessica Jones. When I first heard she was going to show up, I assumed she would appear about as much as Jessica got injured. But as it turns out, Claire gets to (basically) dominate the last episode of the season. Claire shows up...
