Arrow Review: Nice Idea With Mixed Results in “Spectre of the Gun”

by Jeff Fountainon February 16, 2017
For a show that is constantly hip deep in violence, it may seem laughable for Arrow to go off the reservation a bit and do an episode centered on gun control. To that end, it was not entirely successful in pulling it off. However, it did surprise me a bit and combined with the Rene […]

Agents of SHIELD Loses Steam in The Man Behind the Shield

by Laura Cerroneon February 15, 2017
Episode 14 – The Man Behind the Shield While components to Agents of SHIELD’s 14th episode were good (Philinda backstory, and the crazy twist at the end), as a whole the overacrhing plot ended up being a letdown. Lots of things worked well for the episode, the dialogue, the visual effects and the stunt choreography, […]

The Walking Dead Review: Gathering the Troops in “Rock in the Road”

by Jeff Fountainon February 13, 2017
If anything, the writers for The Walking Dead want the viewers to know that yes, there is hope. Hope is wonderful and can be the catalyst for many great things however, I just wish they didn’t feel the need to hit us over the head with it time and time again. Yes, we all understand […]

Arrow Review: An Interesting Effort That Falls Short in “Bratva”

by Jeff Fountainon February 9, 2017
While there have been some fun moments with the Russian flashbacks and that whole plot arc in Oliver’s past, “Bratva” tried to do too much with too little and we ended up with another one of those messy Arrow episodes that if anything, is almost expected now. When Team Arrow went to Russia on a […]

Review: Legion is a Mindboggling, Cinematic Crazy Ass Good Time

by Jeff Fountainon February 9, 2017
It’s always nice to go into a show not knowing what to expect and then have it take you over in a mind bending, entertaining way that in the end leaves your brain rather tired but still wanting more. Welcome to Noah Hawley’s Legion, a show with roots in the X-Men universe but already moving […]

BOOM! Exercises Agents of SHIELD’s Best Qualities

by Laura Cerroneon February 8, 2017
Episode 13 – BOOM! BOOM! Was a perfect amalgamation of what Agents of SHIELD does best, combine adjacent MCU storytelling, with its own original characters, with lots of heart and action. While the episode didn’t boast the biggest plot developments, it surely expounded on the tenets of good television. It offered so many levels to […]

The Flash Review: Training and Waiting in “Untouchable”

by Jeff Fountainon February 8, 2017
While this week might have been a filler episode in terms of the villain, it did have multiple plot points that were quite useful in terms of moving the overall story along. That being said, “Untouchable” still felt at times like it was treading water, staying far too long in the same place which kind […]

Arrow Review: Great Action, Interesting New Character in “Second Chances”

by Jeff Fountainon February 2, 2017
I’ve had a hard time embracing this season, what with all the new characters and constant struggle to find some consistency, but if this episode is any indication then Arrow might have found its second wind as it continues on through its fifth season. Although not without its flaws, “Second Chances” gives us some great […]

Pass the Hot Potato Soup to Us – Agents of SHIELD

by Laura Cerroneon February 1, 2017
Episode 12 – Hot Potato Soup Avenger references, meta call-outs and emotional pinpricks were at the center of Agents of SHIELD’s Hot Potato Soup. With the return (and introduction) of the Koenigs (Sam, Billy, Thurston, LT… RIP Eric), we were promised an episode with a touch of light-heartedness. We love the Koenig’s nerdiness, and Patton […]

The Flash Review: Really Good Vibes in “Dead or Alive”

by Jeff Fountainon February 1, 2017
While I had a hard time embracing the tension or sense of dread that was supposed to be part of this episode, it didn’t take away from the enjoyment I had watching it. Sure, it wasn’t brain surgery plot wise but more like the show taking a deep breath before it moved into other more […]
