The Blacklist 2.05 Review: A Plauge On Your People

The Blacklist 2.05 Review: A Plauge On Your People
Tensions between Red and Lizzie are running higher than ever on The Blacklist, and frankly, I love it. I love that Liz isn’t playing up to his flirtatious banter anymore and is outwardly hostile about the unwanted tail he’s got on her. After this episode, I have a new appreciation of just how devious Liz [...] Read More

Sleepy Hollow 2.05 Review: All The Lady’s Have Crane on the Brain
All the girls have Crane on the brain in Sleepy Hollow these days. And you can’t really blame them. Tall, dark and revolutionary seems to work for Ichabod; girls in both centuries seem to be drawn to him. Unfortunately, being in Ichabod’s good graces seems to be a pretty deadly situation for the women in [...] Read More

The Blacklist 2.04 Review: The Warrior Gene
I have to say, this episode of The Blacklist infuriated me in a very good way. It made me question everything, right down to the editing of the scenes. Which is probably exactly what they wanted but still, I was pulling my hair out at the end of this. There seems to be a plethora [...] Read More

Sleepy Hollow 2.04 Review: Play Me a Tune
As much as I adore Sleepy Hollow, and as creeptastic as the Pied Piper was, I have to say that was a pretty ho-hum episode. It was not without it’s good points, Ichabod learning to drive being the best, but on the whole, this was a bit too procedural to stand up to the freak-factor [...] Read More

The Blacklist 2.03 Review: Black Market Parts
The Blacklist is attempting to settle into it’s procedural formula while still reminding us that Red is still reeling from his showdown with Berlin. While the more procedural episodes are not as enticing as the story arc extravaganzas, this one held a few interesting tidbits about Liz and Red’s relationship. Even Liz’s subconscious understands that [...] Read More

The Blacklist 2.02 Review: Money is the Root of All Evil
If ever you needed a reason to believe that Red Reddington is a ruthless as Berlin, you needn’t go further than the first 5 minutes of this episode of The Blacklist. Whenever you see Mister Kaplan, you know Red needs to clean up some bodies. Apparently, he’s been laying waste to a lot of informants, [...] Read More

Sleepy Hollow 2.02 Review: Franklin-stein’s Monster
Last night’s Sleepy Hollow jumped right back in with all the tension we left off with; Katrina still in the clutches of Headless and trying to resist his “amorous” intentions. I have to agree with Katrina though, I’d much prefer to see him in his monstrous, headless state. Abraham is so unimpressive. There were a [...] Read More

The Blacklist 2.01 Review: Berlin’s Gambit
The Blacklist spared no expense on explosions and over-the-top kidnappings in their season premiere. When last we saw Red Reddington and Liz Keen, they were facing off with Liz’s ex husband and super spy Tom, who was obviously hired by Berlin to flush Red out of hiding. Berlin managed to escape by crashing a plan [...] Read More

Sleepy Hollow 2.01 Review: War is Hell
The long awaited return of Sleepy Hollow started with a bang as we picked up right were we left off what seems like ages ago. Ichabod’s mission to save his witchy wife Katrina came to fruition, but left poor Abbie in purgatory as payment. Then they find out that poor parenting choices apparently do come [...] Read More
