Westworld (S02E01): “Journey Into Night”

WARNING: FULL SPOILERS After a very long and arduous wait, those violent delights have made their return. While Westworld’s first season’s finale wrapped up quite a bit, it did leave some tantalizing threads for the second season to explore. Where exactly will the Host revolution lead? What kind of leader would the eerily charismatic Dolores (Evan…

The Expanse (S03E02) “IFF”

Thoughts on this episode: As usual, a huge amount of material is crammed into this episode. I definitely had to watch more than once to get some of the subtle details. If you miss them, you can misinterpret what is happening, but the good news is that it becomes clear in any case. This episode introduced a compelling new character, Anna Volovodov. She brings at least a teeny bit of restraint, but it’s unclear that this can stop the speeding train wreck that Errinwright is responsible for. It’s lovely to see Bobbie and Avasarala meet up with the Roci crew, which now includes Prax. There is some real potential for sparks with these combinations. I was happy to see that there were some residual effects of Holden’s crushed leg – to be honest, I was surprised at his recovery speed in the last episode. The complexity and beauty of the Roci’s and Razorback’s space moves was breathtaking. The manipulation of the children by Strickland is stomach turning. One hopes he gets his in some future episode.

UnREAL (S03E08) “Recurrent”

Oh man, what a heavy episode. It starts off rocky with Rachel losing control, unable to contain her anger at her mother. Olive is certainly up to her old ways by way of controlling Asa, thwarting all of the hard work Rachel had put into helping him. It looked like there was some hope for…

Suits (S07E12E13) “Inevitable”

Review: Risks are inevitable, so is change. Even though the mid-season premiere claimed that some hard truths did come out, the safety in the characters’ choices was undeniable. However, 7×12 sent the people of now Specter Litt (*cries*), on a path of complicated decision making. With Louis agreeing to a torrid affair with Sheila, Mike…

The Expanse (S03E01) “Fight or Flight”

Warning, this review is a recap, with commentary; therefore, it is ONE GIANT SPOILER if you haven’t seen the episode.

The Expanse is BACK! Seems like forever, doesn’t it? But, we take up right where we left off. There is a news report about the disintegration of the Arboghast over Venus, and the march to war. Things are escalating. There are actual battles being fought.

UnREAL (S03E07) “Projection”

This week we get to what was always my favourite episode of The Bachelorette and it’s counterpart The Bachelor; Home town dates. Well, just one in this case, but it was a riveting event all the same. While Rachel does her best to steer the ship it’s clear that she sees herself in Owen’s daughter…

The Expanse (S02E13) “Caliban’s War”

This will serve as a refresher, as we are just literally starting Season 3, based on the book Abaddon’s Gate, written by James SA Corey (a nom de plume for Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham). Season 2’s finale episode name, Caliban’s War, follows the tradition of the final episode taking the name of the book the season primarily followed.

Ransom (S02E01) “Three Wishes”

Ransom begins its second season immediately after its first season concludes, as Eric Beaumont’s (Luke Roberts) daughter Evie (now played by Morgan Kohan) is kidnapped.

Interview with Barry Sloane

I am excited to share with y’all our interview of current SIX star Barry Sloane. I’ve been a fan since his day’s on Revenge so this was such an honor. I have to say I was tickled pink when we received his answers in audio form, it’s certainly no hardship listening to that British accent when…

UnREAL (S03E06) “Transference”

This week was both thrilling and heart breaking. We are sharply reminded that Quinn is willing to push anything for the right shot, regardless of whom it sacrifices. It was a little hard to watch her work her magic this time, as at least for me, it was dirty to try and manipulate someone sexuality…

Interview with Alin Sumarwata

I was so excited for the opportunity to interview Alin Sumarwata,  current star of Cinemax’s Strike Back. As Gracie Novin, Alin has been a fan favorite from day 1 and was so gracious to share her precious time with us before heading off to begin shooting season 7! First off, coming off of Neighbours in Australia, what…
