Into the Badlands Review: Wonderful World Building in ‘Carry Tiger to Mountain’

by Jeff Fountainon May 21, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* This season is already much better than season two, mostly due to the introduction of some great characters, religious overtones, and some serious world building. Into the Badlands survived through some shaky moments in the first two scenes by relying on the incredible action and fight sequences. This season there is time […]

Fear the Walking Dead Review: Mysteries, Death and Intrigue in ‘Just In Case’

by Jeff Fountainon May 21, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* I’ve got to hand it to Fear the Walking Dead, they sure know to keep its fan base guessing. From another possible character death to the surprise return (not really) of another character and the fate of Madison still a mystery, things are getting really interesting. One of the biggest questions still hanging […]


Into the Badlands Review: Sunny Takes a Trip Down Memory Lane in “Blind Cannibal Assassins”

by Jeff Fountainon May 14, 2018
With a title like “Blind Cannibal Assassins”, I was very excited about the possibilities of this episode. Thankfully, it didn’t disappoint, with some phenomenal action scenes, a face-off between Pilgrim and The Widow and yet another reminder of how being a clipper always comes back to haunt your ass. Sunny and Bajie get captured by […]

Into the Badlands Review: Battle Lines are Drawn in “Leopard Snares Rabbit”

by Jeff Fountainon May 7, 2018
After a nice episode of character building last week, we get right back to the action this week in “Leopard Snares Rabbit”. There are solid moments of revelations, both good and bad, that mixed in with some of the now usual wonderfully well done and over the top fight scenes, made for a solid and […]


Fear the Walking Dead Review: Sadness and Turmoil in “Buried”

by Jeff Fountainon May 7, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* I was fully expecting a lull of sorts this week after the big death from last week. In defense of any show experiencing this, just how do you get right back on the horse after such an emotional and shocking moment? Well, Fear the Walking Dead had the solution, rolling out an […]

Review: The Terror Delivers a Disturbing and Haunting Episode in “A Mercy”

by Jeff Fountainon May 2, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* My biggest concern for The Terror has always been how they could possibly manage to keep up the high levels of fear, terror, and dread that has been building each and every episode. To this end, “A Mercy” seemed to highlight those fears, as it began with a rather slow and plodding […]


Review: Into the Badlands Greases the Wheel in ‘Moon Rises, Raven Seeks’

by Jeff Fountainon May 1, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD*   After a great season premiere, Into the Badlands took a deep breath, built up some storylines and moved characters around its massive bloody chessboard of a show. What emerged might not have as high energy, high octane as the first episode but there were a lot of important moments and some […]

Review: Fear the Walking Dead is Shocking and Tragic in ‘Good Out Here’

by Jeff Fountainon April 30, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD*   Well, I wasn’t expecting that. Nick is dead, killed off with no warning at all and while it was done well I wonder if this will end up doing more harm than good down the line. Killing off a major character is gutsy but risky, something I didn’t see Fear the Walking […]


Review: The Terror Digs Deeper into the Dread in ‘First Shot A Winner, Lads’

by Jeff Fountainon April 24, 2018
*SOME SPOILERS AHEAD* After this episode, we will be halfway through this mini-series and seriously, I can’t figure out how the showrunners will make things any bleaker than they already are. I mean, I’m all for dread, terror, and fear but what these two crews have been through already is horrifying, to say the least. […]

The Terror Review: Attacks on the Crew Ramp up the Fear in “Punished, As A Boy”

by Jeff Fountainon April 17, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* Well, Captain Sir John Franklin is dead and honestly, the men under his command are probably better for it. Foolish at the best of times, reckless and driven by his ego at the worst, Franklin’s death puts more pressure on Captain Francis Crozier to formulate a plan of rescue while trying to stave […]
