As Upfronts Week 2019 is underway with NBC released on Sunday. On Monday, Fox announced as the second broadcast TV network of its fall tv schedule with some changes and announcements.
Looks like our good girls are slowly getting the hang of being bad. Last weeks’ season premiere took us on a rollercoaster ride that we’re still riding on.
Annie(Mae Whitman), Beth(Christina Hendricks) and Ruby(Retta) not only have to deal with their family issues, but also, the gift that Rio(Manny Montana) gave them—a gun. … More “Good Girls (S02E02) “Slow Down, Children at Play””
Praise be! The Handmaid’s Tale is back, to creep us out, infuriate us, terrify us, and warn us. Last season ended in in the same way the book did, in that vaguely the Lady or the Tiger-ish way.… More “The Handmaid’s Tale (S02E01) “June””
From Principal Durban trying to show how innervating the school can be to figuring out who squealed about Jack’s plan for biology class. It all relays on one student to get through this nightmare.… More “A.P. Bio (S01E11) "Eight Pigs and a Rat"”
AAA: WEREWOLF GIRL MISSING. Where was Maia? No sign of her. Remember what I said the past three episodes about Maia and Isabelle not having scenes that did not pertain to men? Maia couldn’t interact with her boyfriend Simon in this ep, so why bother writing her scenes at all, right SH writers?… More “Shadowhunters (S03E05) "Stronger Than Heaven" Review”
This episode was one of Patton Oswalt’s best ones yet.
As Durbin hears the rest of the teachers talking about how they love a hit sci fi show, that seems to be Midnight, Texas, and wants to ignore any spoilers because he hasn’t seen any of the episodes yet due to his wife not ready to watch it with him.… More “A.P. Bio (S01E10) "Durbin Crashes"”
Episode 3×03 of Shadowhunters, aptly titled “What Lies Beneath”, didn’t move the general plot forward, but at least it moved it sideways. We caught up with Raphael, Maryse, and Heidi.… More “Shadowhunters (S03E03) "What Lies Beneath" Review”
Not going to lie: Shadowhunters is only on episode 2 of its junior year and it was already a filler. Enjoyable and emotional, but still a filler episode nonetheless, that didn’t further the plot in any way.… More “Shadowhunters (S03E02) "The Powers That Be" Review”
SHADOWHUNTERS came back with a bang. The season 3 premiere proved everyone’s promises right: they all said the adjective to describe it would be “darker”. The episode opens in the gloomy and mysterious Church of Talto in New York, with Lilith (Anna Hopkins) clutching Sebastian’s corpse and promising her son she will bring him back.… More “Shadowhunters (S03E01) "On Infernal Ground" Review”
After last week’s gloriously unifying episode, this week on The Magicians was not about unity. Our questers had completely separate storylines. I was looking forward to Quentin (Jason Ralph) reuniting with his life partner Eliot (Hale Appleman) and with Margo (Summer Bishil), but my shipper heart was not satisfied because their paths only crossed for one scene and it was anything but romantic.… More “The Magicians (S03E10) "The Art of the Deal"”
If The Magicians decided that they’re going to do one musical episode every season, that’s more than fine by me. This time, bursting out in song wasn’t a nerdy or meta-televisual moment, it was truly embedded in the plot as Kady, Quentin and Alice find themselves trapped in a party universe.… More “The Magicians (S03E09) "All That Josh"”
In this Dominick Carisi (Peter Scanavino) centered episode, SVU examines the realities of investigating and prosecuting the complicated sex crimes that are reported on college campuses.… More “Law and Order: SVU (S19E15)"In Loco Parentis"”
My favorite thing about The Magicians is that they’re not afraid to go with unusual choices. The directorial style often changes drastically between episodes, and they don’t apologize for it.… More “The Magicians (S03E08) "Six Short Stories About Magic" Review”
Another episode that opens with a scene where excessive propriety provides a sharp contrast to a decidedly improper conversation. Kreizler is sitting in a parlor with a woman and a maid brings in a tray with a silver coffee service.… More “The Alienist (S01E04): “These Bloody Thoughts’”
The Magicians is a show that never fails to present fans with crazy storylines. We have no time to dwell about our own suspension of disbelief, too caught up in the emotional mess we are reduced to.… More “The Magicians (S03E05) "A Life In The Day" Review”
Episode 3×04 “Be The Penny” was narratively very innovative because the whole thing was explored from Penny’s point of view. We watch as Penny watches his friends react to his death, and just like us, Penny can’t do anything about it.… More “The Magicians (S03E04) "Be the Penny" Review”
