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...

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 12 Recap and Review – ‘AKA Take a Bloody Number’

Luke Cage is back and he’s teaming up Jessica Jones to finally catch this son of a piece o’ whatchamacallit. Kilgrave just blew up Luke’s bar, and now Luke wants his revenge as much as Jessica does. It’s a little comical that Luke, the big guy with unbreakable skin, is taking on the role of sidekick to this itty bitty...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 Episode 10 Recap and Review – ‘Maveth’

With everything building up to yet another showdown with Hydra, “Maveth” seemed very well-paced despite being a little repetitious. Most of that has to do with the funny little moments of comedy woven into some tense situations and how strong the cast has been, especially Ian De Caestecker and Elizabeth Henstridge. Some spoilers...

Supergirl Season 1, Episode 7 Recap and Review – ‘Human for a Day’

Kara used up all her powers fighting Red Tornado last week, and as a result, she’s stuck playing the role of a normal human being. For now. We’re only seven episodes into the season right now, but I think I can safely say that “Human for a Day” perfectly encapsulates the importance of Supergirl. And it’s not just...

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 11 Recap and Review – ‘AKA I’ve Got The Blues’

Can we just take a moment and savor the fact that Jessica Jones features a pretty darn genuine friendship between two women? They can argue, disagree, and exchange really low blows at each other, but at the end of the day they still know to push all of that pettiness aside to concentrate on the important things. We get a few flashbacks to when...
