  • Supergirl: 1.8 Hostile Takeover Review

    Astra doesn’t want to kill Supergirl. She wants to be a family again. Probably to burn Earth to the ground, but hey. Cat Grant’s been hacked, by the way. While she’s dealing with that, she’s scooping from an ice bin… filled with candy, which is wonderful and something I...
  • Jane the Virgin: 2.8 Chapter Thirty Review

    Today’s Jane the Virgin opens with six-year-old Jane. She’s kind. She follows the rules. She’s nothing but a sweetheart. Unless you piss her off. Our Janie has a temper. And after finding out it was Rafael that turned Michael in, well, steam’s coming out of her ears. So she goes...
  • Elementary: 4.5 The Games Afoot Review

    Last week, we saw Sherlock and Joan solve a case while Joan was being investigated by the police because of a certain Detective Cortes’ personal grudge. This week’s episode is tied a little more into the seasonal arc. And by that I mean ALFREDO IS BACK! And Sherlock seems...
  • Supergirl: 1.7 Human For A Day Review

    Last week, Kara bled. Last week, National City lost their Supergirl. The fight with Red Tornado, according to A.I. Mommy Alura, drained Kara of the energy provided by the sun. It’s not like Kara’s been exposed to Earth’s sun since childhood or anything, nbd. It happens to Superman too,...
  • Supergirl: 1.6 Red Faced Review

    You know what’s neat about Supergirl? They’re taking a look at accountability. The opening shows Kara stopping two men who, in a fit of road rage, were about to run over a children’s soccer team. When she confronts the men whose cars she crushed, one tries to punch her,...
  • Jane the Virgin: 2.7 Chapter Twenty-Nine Review

    ‘Tis the season to get a babysitter. And Jane’s having trouble. It makes sense, considering the whole thing earlier in the show with Sin Rostro stealing Mateo and trying to use him against Jane, Michael, and the Solanos. Yeah, I’d be pretty reticent to let my baby stay in...
  • Supergirl: 2.5 How Does She Do It? Review

    This episode is a liiiiiittle out of order. Because of the bombings in Paris, it was flip-flopped with “Livewire”, so while only a little bit of plot had been furthered, we do get to see what’s up with James and Lucy. Alas, no Brit Morgan this time around. Kara...
  • Elementary: 4.04 Tag, You’re Me Review

    So Sherlock and Joan are back with the NYPD. Awesome. Actually, it’s slightly frustrating. I mean, this is a CBS procedural drama, so the status quo can’t change too much, but it would have been interesting having more than two episodes dedicated to the duo’s removal from the NYPD....
  • Supergirl: 2.4 Livewire Review

    And she’s mean in this episode, holy crap. But hey, we do get her—Leslie Willis—talking crap about men who would try to sleep with Supergirl on her radio show, prompting some very insulted looks from James and Winn. It’s a little odd we’ve not heard of her shock-jock antics...
