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...

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 10 Recap and Review – ‘AKA 1,000 Cuts’

“AKA 1,000 Cuts” is probably the most difficult episode to watch so far. What happens when you’ve pissed off a psychotic mind-controller? A lot of violence. Despite Jessica’s constant warnings about Kilgrave’s capabilities, it seems that no one believed her, or fully grasped the idea of how much of a monster this...

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 8 Recap and Review – ‘AKA WWJD?’

Jessica Jones takes a break from the grittier parts of New York City and moves out to the suburbs where Jessica and Kilgrave are living the most f***ed up parts in Beauty and the Beast. Jessica plays the role of the strong-willed Beauty. Kilgrave plays the privileged, self-centered prick who was turned into a sociopathic control freak because...

Jessica Jones Season 1, Episode 7 Recap and Review – ‘AKA Top Shelf Perverts’

This is where the game changes. Like a dog scoping out and marking his territory, Kilgrave sneaks into Jessica’s apartment, he ruffles through a few of her things, he uses the toilet, and then he meets poor, sweet Ruben from upstairs. As some awkward declaration of love, Ruben brought down a plate of banana bread for Jessica. He makes...
