Episode Title: Grumble Bee
Original Airdate: April 28, 1994

When you’re a kid there’s nothing more terrifying than bees. Who cares about whatever good they may do…all that matters is that they’ve got stingers and they ain’t afraid to use them. The citizens of Angel Grove are about to feel the sting, so to speak, as Rita unleashes a new monster known as the Grumble Bee in today’s episode called, oddly enough, Grumble Bee.

Episode Title: The Ogg Couple
Original Airdate: December 21, 1967

Greetings citizens of Gotham! Before we begin this week’s episode, I want to apologize for being a bit behind on the reviews lately. Not only have I been traveling a lot for work lately, but I’ve also been horribly sick the whole time. I’m finally on the mend, though, so it’s time to get back on track. This week we see the return of that unlikely pair of Egghead (Vincent Price) and Olga, Queen of the Cossacks (Anne Baxter). They are up to no good again in this week’s episode, The Ogg Couple.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:06 Ep:12

Episode Title:  Double Meat Palace

Original Air Date: 29th January, 2002

“Xander you ate the burger?” – Buffy

We are not at the halfway point for the series and everything is still pretty much decidedly in a mess for the Scoobies much like the structure of the season. Currently we have no real big villian outside of “The Trio” who at the start of this episode has high tailed it following their last encounter with Buffy. Willow is still going through magic withdrawal and Buffy is still in a screwed up secret relationship with Spike. Still atleast this week Buffy is attempting to try and get her life more in order as she takes a fast food job at the “Double Meat Palace” only to find out that strange things might be happening to the staff.

Episode Title: Catwoman’s Dressed to Kill
Original Airdate: December 14, 1967

Over the course of the last two and half seasons, we have seen a few times where a famous role was recast. Remember last season we had the role of the Riddler briefly taken over by John Astin when Frank Gorshin was unavailable. We’ve also seen three different actors play the part of Mr. Freeze. But our episode today gives us what may be the biggest casting change the series ever saw. Julie Newmar originated the role of Catwoman on this series, and her performance is iconic. Just as iconic, though, is season three’s version of the character, taken over for a handful of episodes by the one and only Eartha Kitt. Here she is in Catwoman’s Dressed to Kill.

Is he the only hope for the good parents of Angel Grove? Let’s find out in Return of an Old Friend part 2. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:50

Episode Title: The Bloody Tower
Original Airdate: December 7, 1967

Well, it’s time to wrap up the Caped Crusaders’ adventure in Londinium. Considering how lackluster the first two episodes of this story were, I think we’re all pretty anxious to get back stateside. But first, Batgirl, who has been captured by Lord Ffogg (Rudy Vallee) and Lady Peasoup (Glynis Johns), needs saving. Let’s see what happens in the conclusion of our British adventure, The Bloody Tower. Continue reading Batman S:03 E:13

Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:06 Ep:11

Episode Title:  Gone

Original Air Date: January 8th 2002

Can we get back to freaking out about no-show Buffy? This is serious.” – Xander

Tone wise its something of an odd episode this week as we open to Buffy cleansing the house of anything Magic releated as Willow undergoes her magic detox following her hitting rock bottom in the previous episode. At the same time Buffy seems keen to clense the house of anything link to Spike as she finds his ligher in the couch and adds it to the same box as Willows magical items. To make matters worse its also at this moment that Buffy is visited by the social services who, due to Dawn’s school attendance and grades have now landed Buffy under probabation. All these events creating something of a rock bottom effect for Buffy who is next seen cutting her hair with a zoned out expression.

It’s a grim setup for the episode and one which the writers suddenly get cold feet over and instead give us an invisible Buffy storyline when its revealed that the diamond we saw “The Trio” stealing a few episodes back was part of their invisibility ray gun which they accidentally use on Buffy.

Episode Title: Return of an Old Friend Part 1
Original Airdate: February 28, 1994

Over the course of the last 40+ episode of Power Rangers there is one big question I’ve had, “don’t these kids have parents?” I mean think about it, giant monsters attack Angel Grove left and right, yet we’ve never seen any sign of parental units for any of our five teenage heroes. We’ve seen plenty of uncles, but no actual parents. That changes now in today’s episode, Return of an Old Friend part 1. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:49

Episode Title: The Foggiest Notion
Original Airdate: November 30, 1967

If you recall, our last adventure in Gotham…uh…actually didn’t take place in Gotham. We all headed off across the pond to Londinium and…actually…not a lot happened. Episode one of this three-part adventure was a whole lot of setup and not a lot of action. Let’s find out if things get better in part two of this story, The Foggiest Notion.
