It’s always difficult when a show you love ends, when you head into a season knowing it’ll be the last. But if, for Strike Back, it means a season like what we saw in the premiere episode?… More “Strike Back (S08E01) “Episode One””
This is it people, the season finale! The episode we’ve been waiting for all summer! Operation: Pied Piper! Mayday! And what an episode it was!
Everything seems to be coming together.… More “The Handmaid’s Tale (S03E13) “Mayday””
After several weeks of not much happening, this week’s episode had a whole lot. June is looking at the yes-muffins while she voices over that they can get out 52 kids. How they’ll do that with a truck that can only hold ten, she’s not sure, but she’ll do if if they have to strap kids to the roof.… More “The Handmaid’s Tale (S03E11) “Liars””
June has come home (for want of a better word). The house has been redecorated in her absence, and all the art and books are gone. New regulations, Aunt Lydia tells her, then encourages her to rest, because June’s home just in time for the Ceremony!… More “The Handmaid’s Tale (S03E10) “Witness””
Praise be, this Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Storyline seems to be over. (Did you see what I did there?)
Belinda Carlisle’s song Heaven is a Place on Earth is heard, as the episode opens.… More “The Handmaid’s Tale (S03E09) “Heroic””
I’m not sure where this show is going. June has become the least sympathetic character on the show, and I don’t even find her interesting anymore. She’s essentially untouchable, (she says so herself,) which takes away any sense of urgency.… More “The Handmaid’s Tale (S03E08) ‘Unfit’”
The episode beings with a Salvaging, one of those highly choreographed events with Handmaids pulling the ropes that hang miscreants. Another happy day in Gilead!
June is walking to the shops with the insufferable Ofmatthew.… More “The Handmaid’s Tale (S03E07): “Under His Eye””
We open with a kind of dreamy, soft focus, slow motion shot of falling snow. Murmuring voices pray for Nichole’s safe return. June voiceovers that she hopes Serena will remember why they sent Nichole to Canada.… More “The Handmaid’s Tale (S03E06) “Household’”
The episode opens on the face of a grumpy old man. Nope, scratch that, it’s Nichole, on the screen, because Luke is too stupid to realize that putting the kidnapped Gilead baby on television was possibly not a great idea.… More “The Handmaid’s Tale (S03E05) “Unknown Caller””
While everyone looked forward to having fun during the weekend , our dear Sheldon (Iain Armitage ) was happy because he’d get to do the taxes. Oh well, we are all wired differently. See what I did there?… More “Young Sheldon (S02E04) “A financial secret and Fish sauce””
It was a case of The Blacklist meets Ocean’s 11 in the episode “Zarak Mosadek”, with a fun caper in Paris for the team. We’ve seen capers such as this before, where Reddington and co pull off a heist or kidnapping, as in the 100th episode, and The Director back in Season 3.… More “The Blacklist (S05E18) "Zarak Mosadek"”
