The Expanse (S02E05) “Home”

For those viewers who had not read Leviathan Wakes, this was an utter shock. It marked the end of Miller, a character with whom many bonded. For followers of the book, this was masterfully done, and conveyed the crew’s desperation to rescue Miller (almost more than the compulsion to save the planet, which you know affected them, particularly Holden). It also showed Miller’s sheer determination to muscle that bomb along and accomplish his objective. It’s sad to think of the rest of the season without Miller, but there is equal excitement to watch the next segment of the story which is the beginning of Caliban’s War. Fans of Bobbie should be very happy as her arc escalates. As far as effects go, this episode equaled its previous mastery, both in terms of covering the Eros chase, and particularly in giving life both to the blue fireflies, as well as showing the construction and “animation” of blue Julie. Although brief, the Venus strike was gorgeous. If you have not read “Drive,” a short story by James SA Corey (nom de plume of authors Abraham Daniels and Ty Franck), I recommend that you go read this RIGHT NOW. http://www.syfy.com/theexpanse/drive/form.html.

Chicago PD (S04E15): “Favor, Affection, Malice, Or Ill-Will”

I really enjoyed this episode of Chicago PD. It felt fresh and exciting, but also it had a simplistic quality to it which can be nice for this kind of high action TV series. Ruzek is back on screen, but his transition back is certainly not as smooth as he anticipated. I enjoyed this small upset for…

HTGAWWM (S03E13): “It’s War” 

Review: As we prepare for the two-hour season finale, let’s take a step back and think about how we got here and where we go next. The main question since the mid-season finale has been, who killed Wes? Sweet Wes, the heart of the show. Was it Nate, who was at the Keating residence when…
