Review: Star Trek Discovery Wraps Up a Solid First Season in “Will You Take My Hand?”

by Jeff Fountainon February 12, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* Even though the main arc of the season involving the Klingon war was wrapped up too quickly and too neat for me, there was plenty of nostalgia and solid storylines that made this a great episode to end the season with. While many will be talking about the final few minutes, and rightly […]

Review: Star Trek Discovery Takes a Deep Breath in “The War Without, The War Within”

by Jeff Fountainon February 6, 2018
The first thirteen episodes of this season, the show’s first season, have been pretty much the ‘full speed ahead, take no prisoners’ kind of approach. Slick effects, great action, death everywhere, Discovery has had little time to develop its characters the way we are used to seeing in Star Trek television shows. While I understand […]

Review: Star Trek Discovery Shuffles the Deck in “What’s Past is Prologue”

by Jeff Fountainon January 30, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* In what felt like a season finale, Star Trek: Discovery gave us showdowns, loads of action, tied up some loose ends and had a huge death scene. What became clear, at least for the moment, is the Mirror Universe part of the season is at an end, and with only two episodes remaining […]

*SPOILERS AHEAD* The big twist or reveal finally happened this week, that being the ‘revelation’ that Lorca was indeed from the Mirror Universe and has been playing everyone all along. Many had guessed this already, the sensitive eyes was a pretty good giveaway, but now that it’s official it opens up a lot of interesting […]

Review: The X-Files Shows Off Its Strengths in “Plus One”

by Jeff Fountainon January 18, 2018
Thankfully leaving the mythology behind, Chris Carter showed off his still impressive writing chops with an episode that had a nice monster of the week story but more importantly, showed off what The X-Files is really about, that being the wonderful relationship between Mulder and Scully. Yes, the mythology, the monster stories and all the […]

The Flash Review: A Very Underwhelming Return in “The Trial of the Flash”

by Jeff Fountainon January 17, 2018
I don’t know, I guess with a storyline like this, one in which everyone knows is going to end up with Barry Allen free somehow, the odds were stacked against it right from the beginning that it was going to be good. I held out hope though, clinging to the chance that the writers/showrunners had […]

Review: The X-Files Embrace the Fun in “This”

by Jeff Fountainon January 13, 2018
I knew I was in for some fun when the episode began with The Ramones playing in the background, a somehow perfect setting for the shootout that was about to happen at Mulder’s house. It was the beginning of an episode full of action, one-liners and an investigation into a transmission sent by a now […]

Review: Star Trek: Discovery Embraces the Dark Side in “Despite Yourself”

by Jeff Fountainon January 8, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* As much as I’ve enjoyed the darker tone of Discovery, I was beginning to wonder where they were going to take this. I mean, you can’t have a show about a war with the Klingons forever, good or bad. Enter the Mirror Universe, the Terran Empire and the possibilities of the Klingon war […]

Review: The Walking Dead’s Mid-Season Finale ‘How It’s Gotta Be’ Fails to Deliver

by Jeff Fountainon December 11, 2017
*SPOILERS AHEAD* With the season eight mid-season eight finale in the books, I can say The Walking Dead is now officially running on the fumes of great stories and seasons gone by. So many bizarre plot holes, idiotic decisions by characters, it has gotten to the point that this is now what I expect every […]
