Just like that, all six episodes of AMC’s Into the Badlands have (already?!) wrapped up—and with it go some of the most mesmerizing, elegant on-screen battles ever produced on an American TV program. I’m going to fill the hiatus WITH prayers to the cable TV deities urging AMC to officially greenlight a second season. …
Well, damn. Limitless, the freshman series that won my heart as an unapologetically off-kilter comedic serial with episode-long Ferris Bueller homages and made-up ailments like “micropenis,” took an intensely dark turn for its winter finale. It shifted the focus from Brian to the rest of the characters—and what…
It’s a return of the reoccurring characters this week on Elementary! We finally spend time with Alfredo for the first time since his kidnapping, Captain Gregson and Detective Bell get a shot at doing police work, and everyone engages in banter.
One notoriously be-wigged political figure has been dominating political coverage lately, so let’s turn our attention to another. Oliver Queen is running for mayor. If you had to judge from this episode, “Dark Waters,” would you vote for him?
“Legends of Yesterday” is the second part of the Arrow/Flash crossover, or a way of transmitting the effects of LSD through a television screen, or both. This is the nuttiest bit of entertainment I’ve seen in a while, but my god does it entertain.
I don’t know what to tell you about The Librarians. This week they put John de Lancie as the devil and John Larroquette as Galahad in cocktail party to snipe politely at each other. If you’re not watching for things like that, you are beyond help.
The story is pretty all over the place, but AMC’s martial arts drama Into the Badlands’ fight scenes are unlike any combat action that’s appeared on American television in years. Maybe ever.
On this week’s Limitless, all the fancy robotic arms in New York get hacked to commit crimes. The episode’s title? “Arm-ageddon.” I love this show.
I’m really digging AMC’s Into the Badlands for its hypnotizing, gorgeous skirmishes. But these acrobatic, limb-chopping warriors need to be showing a bit more personality—otherwise, we’re never going to care if the good guys get sliced to ribbons or not.
Remember what made the first season of Sleepy Hollow so great? The show’s definitely trying to remember. Last night’s fall finale reads like a callback list of big moments from season one—right down to the final sacrifice.
You should watch the latest Arrow episode with the sound off. This is not an insult to the dialogue in “Brotherhood,” but a tribute to the fights. Not only could this story be told largely through the ass-kickings, this style could actually change what we expect from Arrow and superhero shows.
This week, Brian convinces Naz to open the “Brian Finch and Rebecca Harris Amazing Major Crime Squad,” aka “the Bruntouchables,” as they comb through cults in the Midwest and space elevator crackpots to track down America’s most dangerous criminals ... in two weeks.
I tuned into last night’s series premiere of Into the Badlands expecting balletic swordsplay that echoed Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and gruesome cuts that recalled Kill Bill. I was not disappointed.
It’s been a while since Sleepy Hollow had the old-fashioned-serial momentum of season one, but darn it if “The Art of War” isn’t trying. Jenny being possessed by a demon has never been such brisk fun!
It’s hard to be a parent in comics. Your kids lie to you, your spouse is often a mole, a clone, or Doctor Octopus, and when you die you never, ever come back. But on last night’s Arrow, some DCU parents finally have something good happen to them.
“This Red Lady from Caribee” technically wraps the first arc this season, but really it’s simpler: three dates, three disasters. A deadly wasp monster stings Abbie’s boss-ex and that’s still not the worst date this week.
Arrow’s last episode was lackluster, but “Haunted” more than makes up for it. This episode offers up one delight after another. John Constantine brings the magic—quite literally. But he’s still only the second best character this episode.
This week, “Dead Men Tell No Tales” as Sleepy Hollow crossed over with Bones! It’s as odd as it sounds, and ran into some forensic snoozology, but it had Halloween charm and the most satisfying wrap of the season so far.
Sleepy Hollow has visibly been shaking off the ghosts of season two, and this episode offers more of everybody’s favorite: “The Sisters Mills.” It also presents a dental monster...and a Crane problem.
“Restoration” gives us exactly what it sounds like it will give us. After the turbulence of last season, the show irons out its rough edges and sets the stage for the next big thing. while positioning several more potential “big things” for us to anticipate.
