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.

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...

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...
