Marvel’s Agent Carter S2, Ep 6 Recap & Review – ‘Life of the Party’

This week, Agent Carter fans were treated to a double dose of our favorite SSR spy, and they waste no time in ramping up the intrigue by reintroducing Dottie Underwood. Peggy is still badly injured from her last encounter with Whitney Frost, and she is in no shape to even open a door without popping a few stitches. But evil waits for no one. Dr...

The X-Files S10, Ep 5 Recap & Review – ‘Babylon’

This week’s episode of The X-Files takes a turn at one of the more real topics of today: the power of belief that insights extreme acts (of terror). I word it this way because Chris Carter touches on a few aspects of belief and the power it holds, from placebo effects to, of course, religious extremists. Although, I don’t know if it...

Black Sails Season 3, Ep. 4 Recap & Review – ‘XXII’

Another strong episode this week as Flint, Silver, and the rest of the Walrus crew find themselves captured by Maroons, escaped slaves who formed an independent settlement deep within the island. Back on Nassau, Vane narrowly escapes and joins Blackbeard’s crew to send the English blockade a teeny message. But none of that compares to the...

Lucifer S1, Ep. 3 Recap & Review – The Would-Be Prince of Darkness’

You know who are more devilish characters than Lucifer? Hannibal Lecter, Billy Bob Thorton in the first season of Fargo, and every single main character in Supernatural, especially the ones who’ve actually been to Hell. Three episodes in, and I feel like I’m playing the lamest drinking game ever waiting for Lucifer Morningstar to do...

The X-Files S10, Ep 4 Recap & Review – ‘Home Again’

Agent Scully struggles with the little questions this week as she sit by her dying mother in the hospital. “Home Again” is a bit of a mixed bag for me. While watching her mother cling to life long enough to hear from her estranged son, Charlie, Scully takes some time away from a bizarre murder case to contemplate the missing pieces...

Marvel’s Agent Carter S2, Ep 4 Recap and Review – ‘Smoke and Mirrors’

This week we get to see the origin stories of both Agent Carter and Whitney Snow. A series of flashbacks detail some defining moments in their respective lives, revealing polar opposite upbringings. I feel that this was more in service to Whitney’s character than to Peggy’s, but both reveal some important context that explains why...

Marvel’s Agent Carter S2, Ep 3 Recap and Review – ‘Better Angels’

Good news: Dr. Wilkes is not dead! Bad news: He can not be seen nor heard unless Howard Stark sprays a chemical solution on him. Even then, however, he remains an incorporeal spectre. This complication doesn’t bode well for the budding relationship between him and Agent Peggy Carter. The silver lining of it all is that he’s not...
