Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S3, Ep.20 Recap & Review – ‘Emancipation’

Today’s theme is choice. Let’s just get it out there: Hive is a very charismatic character whose ideals sound incredibly appealing and noble. He’s the oldest being on the planet (that we know of), meaning he has wisdom that stretches far beyond that of any one person. He aims to stop war, famine, disease, and anything else that...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S3, Ep.19 Recap & Review – ‘Failed Experiments’

From failure comes success. Or, at the very least, some form of it. We learn so much from our failures (sometimes) because it shuts down avenues of possibility. It’s a “When one door closes, another opens” kind of thinking. But then there are those who have yet to experience such failure and have yet to know what could happen...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S3, Ep.18 Recap & Review – ‘The Singularity’

A lot is happening. We’re getting closer and closer to the season finale and there’s still plenty of setting up before the big day. Daisy and Hive are after Inhumans and potential Inhumans. Couslon and friends are searching for a cure from Hive’s control, and finding a certain fringe scientist is their only hope. Plus...

Lucifer S1, Ep13 Recap & Review – ‘Take Me Back to Hell’

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S3, Ep.17 Recap & Review – ‘The Team’

This week marks the first time we see some version of Daisy’s Secret Warriors band together to work as one super-powered team to save Team S.H.I.E.L.D. Giyera takes the S.H.I.E.L.D. plane straight to Hydra base where Hive and Gideon prepare to meet their new captives. Meanwhile Daisy and Lincoln call back Joey and Yo-Yo to help them...

Supergirl S1, Ep20 Recap & Review – ‘Better Angels’

I’ve often said that CBS’ Supergirl can be a tad clunky in how it presents its action and drama. It excels on an emotional level, but still has to work on building up the super heroic plots. Resolutions to major conflicts almost always end anti-climactically, as if the show is afraid that it might lose viewers if it concentrated more...
