WARNING:  FULL SPOILERS FOR THE EPISODE BELOW We’re only two episodes in and Luke Cage has brought us on an emotional ride.  Code of the Streets didn’t have a lot of superhero action, but the episode continues the utterly compelling  over-arching story of the show. Cottonmouth continues his search for Chico, the last survivor of…

MacGyver: (S1E2) “Metal Saw”

Review:  This episode wasn’t too disappointing.  It was action packed and had a few chuckle worthy zingers.  It started off with the guys being chased through North Korea because they kidnapped someone. During this chase Dalton mentions to MacGyver that “he needs his A game on this one”. MacGyver does a double take and asks what…

Chicago Med (S2E2): “Win Loss”

“Win Loss” was a complicated episode of Chicago Med which had some good and bad moments. On a positive note, the character development of Dr. Reese was funny and made the whole episode a little lighter than had this not been included. Dr. Homestead is beginning to struggle financially, but the way the writers used this in the…

Criminal Minds (S12E01): “The Crimson King”

Review:  12 seasons later Criminal Minds continues to be psychologically thrilling, with moments of comedy and an overall sense of teamwork, loyalty and unapologetic commitment to justice. Opening their season, the BAU Team have their hands full, still on the hunt for the escaped serial killers of last season. “The Crimson King” opened on an…

The Goldbergs (S04E02) “I Heart Video Dating”

Review: With the new technology of video dating, Lainey and Erica try to set up Lainey’s dad, Bill (David Koechner), with someone. Even with Beverly, Lainey and Bill doubting her, Erica  tries, but Bill isn’t the easiest person to set up. He can’t even tape a video without crying and of course nobody responds to…

Luke Cage (S01E01) “Moment of Truth”

Marvel’s Luke Cage looks to continue the “gritty and grounded” approach that Daredevil and Jessica Jones have perfected in previous Netflix outings.  With its opening episode, Moment of Truth, the series successfully continues this tone, while also giving us some welcome new wrinkles. Mike Colter’s Luke Cage finds himself in Harlem, working odd jobs for…

On April 20, 2010 an oil spill spread across the whole Gulf of Mexico causing lots of ocean wildlife to be dangered! But your not here to read about what the oil spill caused your here to read about the events that happened that lead up to that which is where this movie review comes…

Empire: (S03E02) “Sin that Amends”

“Bye, Fe-Lucious…I need you to understand, I am done!” Although he’s trying to get her back with lavish gifts (that she can buy for herself) Cookie thinks she is done and returns Lucious’ gifts of persuasion. Through out the show Lucious calls upon nostalgia, memory and history of their “back in the day” (the flashbacks…

Lethal Weapon: (S1E2) “Pilot: Surf n Turf Part 2”

Review: Last episode was a back and forth between whether or not Riggs and Murtaugh will be partners. This episode was all about providing the Murtaughs with more information about Riggs and solidifying their “adoption” of him.  The episode starts with a naked man, presumed dead, laying on the beach (certain places conveniently covered by seaweed…sorry hetero ladies…and gay…

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (S04E02): “Coral Palms, pt. 2”

Code Black (S2E01): “The Second Year”

Review: It’s back everyone, Code Black has officially premiered and we are undoubtedly happy. Even with the off-screen changes, and a 12 month time jump, the high-octane, action packed, medical drama we fell in love with last year hasn’t lost any punch. Welcoming back our beloved originals with the addition of a few new faces…
