Hello! I’m Shahar, a Muslim feminist with Sufi influence. I have feelings about everything from social justice and politics to fairy tales and fashion. Mostly I just watch ridiculous amounts of TV and tumblr about media issues and representation.
  • The Librarians: 2.10 …And the Final Curtain Season Finale Review

    Well, that’s an apt title, considering the Shakespearean theme throughout this season and especially so in this episode. The Internet is down, all military communications systems are down, and electricity is nonexistent— just like the Carrington Event. If the heroes don’t bring electricity back, they’ll never have technology again,...
  • The Librarians: 2.9 …And the Happily Ever Afters Review

    The Librarians has been renewed for a third season! We’ll get ten more episodes of these dorks running around and saving the world from evil and misguided magic. Anyways, after Prospero’s magic did the thing last week, the team has scattered, all living the ideal versions of their lives....
  • The Librarians 2.8 …And the Point of Salvation Review

    The Clipping Book sends The Librarians to a high-tech research facility, where one of the researchers minimizes his video game before showing Army brass how their quantum computer works. Unfortunately, the researchers have been turned into mindless monsters by Atlantean magic in the center’s lab after a core meltdown....
  • iZombie: 2.9 Cape Town Mid-Season Finale Review

    This week on iZombie, Liv becomes a caped crusader after she eats the brain of a murdered teacher by day, and a vigilante crime-fighter named “The Fog” by night. Of course, Liv gets in trouble after wearing a cape and even Clive is done with her ridiculousness. I can’t...
  • The Librarians: 2.7 …And the Image of Image Review

    We’re still not dealing with Prospero specifically on The Librarians this week, but magical mischief is caused by none other than Dorian Gray. His magic has caused young and beautiful people to suffer the effects of accidents and sins they had nothing to do with. For example, a girl...
  • iZombie: 2.8 The Hurt Stalker Review

    Trigger warning for stalking. iZombie got six more episodes bringing the season 2 total to 19 episodes! This means that regardless of what happens in the thirteenth episode, we’ll get six more episodes with our favorite zombie and her friends to fix the resulting problems from the thirteenth. This...
  • The Librarians: 2.6 …And the Infernal Contract Review

    The show’s version of the Devil makes an appearance on this week’s The Librarians when Baird’s old friend (ex-romantic partner) Sam, who is running for mayor, finds himself embroiled in scandal after an intern goes missing. Of course, Sam and the intern had been involved with each other, and...
  • The Librarians: 2.5 …And the Hollow Men Review

    This week on The Librarians: Flynn must work with his kidnapper, amnesiac stranger Ray (who has many of the Library’s 74 missing artifacts), and everyone else to find the Staff of Zarathustra before Prospero can get to it. This is a good thing because, after tonight, we’ll have finished...
  • How to Get Away With Murder: 2.9 What Did We Do? Review

    Trigger warning for suicide. It’s the episode we’ve all been waiting for of HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER! (You have to read that in Annalise’s voice from the show’s premiere a year ago.) Like last season, the episode runs through all the flash-forward scenes we’ve already seen and...
