Season Review: Hannibal Season 3

Season Review: Hannibal Season 3

Since it's premiere in 2013, NBC's Hannibal has set itself apart as one of the most subversive, sumptuous and challenging shows on televisions (network or otherwise). If season three is to be our last taste, it certainly leaves an appropriate legacy which showcased much of what was great about the show, but also highlighted some of it's failings.

Catching up with...iZombie

Catching up with...iZombie

It's been a long time coming, but there's finally a new kickass female (non-post (present time, series lead) hero back on the CW, following in the footsteps of Veronica Mars and Buffy Summers. Now, those are not comparisons that are made lightly, and time will only tell if iZombie will join those ranks, though Mars creator Rob Thomas is behind the wheel, but right now the odds are looking pretty good for one Liv Moore. And even before we get there, it's a heck of a fun and and entertaining show.

Episode Review: Supernatural "The Werther Project"

Episode Review: Supernatural "The Werther Project"

Goethe's "The Sorrows of Young Werther" is a pretty heavy and awesomely obscure reference to insert into an episode title, but as he has done in every episode he's written since joining the Supernatural writing staff last season, Robert Berens, delivered us an episode as complex, rewarding and dark as the title promised.

Series Review: Daredevil

Series Review: Daredevil

As our hero tells us in episode two of Netflix' first team up with Marvel: there are other ways to see. Many in fact. I think that's fitting because Daredevil is a different beast depending on how you look at it, and accordingly my opinion of thIs show is colored by whether I'm looking at is as a fangirl feminist, a straight up film fan, a lawyer, or a marvel buff. So, where to start...

Episode Review: Supernatural "Inside Man"

Episode Review: Supernatural "Inside Man"

Oh the feels. This week's episode brought them hard, but it also brought a pretty big helping of the thinks as well. As we often do on Supernatural we had two parallel stories, this time both were about family members going behind their relative's back to do what they though needed to be done to "save" their kin, or at least return them to who they were before.

Episode Review: Agents of SHEILD "Aftershocks"

Episode Review: Agents of SHEILD "Aftershocks"

Agent Carter may be done, for now (SOB), but Agents of SHIELD was back in it's place last night to pick up from the big midseason finale, where we saw the loss of Trip, Mack going nutzoid, and Skye and Raina ascending to Inhumanity (spell-check assures me that's a word. Cool.) Following such an epic midpoint, this episode was surprisingly subdued, as it tried to fit every character we care about and some we don't into the episode.

Movie Review: Jupiter Ascending.

Movie Review: Jupiter Ascending.

The sheer camp of Redmayne's performance is something to behold, but it's one of the startlingly original details that makes Jupiter Ascending such a fun ride. Add it to the list: Life-saving space roller blades. Channing tatum spends about 20 minutes shirtless for no reason except to have him shirtless. Sean Bean is apparently part bee and his name is Stinger, grey aliens are monitors on earth and like to wipe peoples' memories. Magic Tattoos! Double Oedipal weirdness! SPACE GARGOYLES. BEES
