Sleepy Hollow 2.09 Review: Keep Fighting
Finally Sleepy Hollow decides to give us some Mills sister back story! And how heart wrenching and creepy it was. After finding out that Mama Mills died not from a suicide induced by schizophrenia, but from battling demons only she could see, it drove home how entrenched in this war the Mills family has been [...] Read More

Elementary 3.03 Review: An Irregular Problem
It’s getting hard for me to be excited about the weekly Elementary episode when the cases of the week start dragging out, with little character development to beef them up. That’s not to say this was a terrible episode, because it wasn’t. I quite like Harlan the needy math genius. But the progression of the [...] Read More

Sleepy Hollow 2.08 Review: The Heartless One
Sleepy Hollow has been struggling of late to balance the character development between all the major characters this season. They seem to be spending a lot of time on Crane Family Drama rather than building on the Witnesses themselves. And while I don’t have a problem with Katrina finally getting to stretch her witchy legs [...] Read More

The Blacklist 2.08 Review: When It All Blows Up In Your Face

The Blacklist 2.08 Review: When It All Blows Up In Your Face
This fall finale episode of The Blacklist was touted to be a mind-blowing, turn-everything-on-it’s-head fandom extravaganza. And while it was a pretty awesome episode, full of epically badass moments, nothing that happened wasn’t foretold or foreseen, therefore not so much blowing of minds. Except for that last little utterance from Tom in the very last [...] Read More

Sleepy Hollow 2.07 Review: What to Expect When You’re Expecting a Demon

Sleepy Hollow 2.07 Review: What to Expect When You’re Expecting a Demon
Sleepy Hollow may need to break away from this new formula of focusing only on the Crane side of the apocalyptic equation if they want the ratings to stop falling. Chatter around the tumblr table has been that fans are tried of all the episodes that have any back story development only revolving around Crane [...] Read More

The Blacklist 2.07 Review: Whose Daughter Is She?

The Blacklist 2.07 Review: Whose Daughter Is She?
I spent the last five minutes of last night’s The Blacklist changing my mind. I think I went through five iterations of “It’s Red’s daughter – no it’s Berlin’s daughter…no, is she Red’s kid?” And then the reveal and while a lot of fans have theorized that Zoe is actually Berlin’s long lost kiddo, I [...] Read More

Elementary 3.01 Review: The Problem with Proteges

Elementary 3.01 Review: The Problem with Proteges
I doubt you could find a more awkward episode of Elementary if you tried. And the awkward, off-beat tempo between the characters is earned, no doubt, but it still made for a somewhat uncomfortable watching experience. Almost a year has gone by since Joan Watson and Sherlock Holmes have seen each other, and the time [...] Read More

Supernatural Review: Getting to the Heart of the Matter
The Winchester brothers got back to the family business in this week’s Supernatural and back to family in general. This show has has tension between Sam and Dean since all the way back in season 1 (with particular bouts of tension in seasons 2 and 4 in particular), but something has felt particularly depressing about [...] Read More

Sleepy Hollow 2.06 Review: Where Did The Wendigo?
Every day is Halloween in Sleepy Hollow, and now they tackle one of the best monster myths of all time – the Wendigo. Nearly every monster scifi show has dealt with a wendigo or two; the skin-walker, organ eating monster is a favorite of shows like Supernatural. This time, the monster is a weapon utilized [...] Read More

The Blacklist 2.06 Review: Poaching the Poachers
It is getting close to Halloween and The Blacklist definitely went in a weird direction last night. We had skinned bodies grinning liplessly at the camera, Lurch getting the creepy taxidermy award of the year, and we even found out who Lizzie was keeping in that room! (and I called it weeks ago!) It was [...] Read More
