Jessica Jones S:02 E:10

Episode Title: AKA Pork Chop
Originally Aired: March 8th, 2018

This was a poorly named episode because the name relates to one small thing while providing no implications of what else is going on during the episode. I think something like big game or betrayal would have been much more fitting of a title. This episode is all about betrayal committed by or against all of our primary characters. One character and a relationship between two of our characters never be the same after this week, and the divides aren’t done growing. Continue reading Jessica Jones S:02 E:10

Episode Title: The Mutiny, Part III
Original Airdate: August 5, 1994

If you recall, when we last left Angel Grove the Power Rangers had a lot of trouble on their hands. Lord Zedd’s Pirantishead monster has control of the T-Rex Zord and the Dragon Zord and is using them against the rangers. The other zords are all out of commission. Sure, there are new zords available to use, but the rangers have to regain control of the captured zords first. So, Billy and Trini are off trying to build a signal blocker so they can get the zords back, while the other four try to keep the bad guys from tearing up the off-road race. Let’s see what happens next in The Mutiny, Part III. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:02 E:03

Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:06 Ep:22

“Thanks a lot for coming. It was good of you to teleport all this way. Though, in retrospect, it probably would have been better if you hadn’t come and given Willow all that magic that made her, like, ten times more powerful. That would have been a plus.” – Anya

So here we are finally at the end of season 6 which has been a problematic trudge to say the least from the notable lack of big evil and one off gimmick episodes like Xander and Anya’s wedding and the much beloved “Once More With Feeling” its really been the beginning of the end for the show even as Buffy prepares for one final showdown with Dark Willow.

Episode Title: The Mutiny, Part II
Original Airdate: July 29, 1994

So, when we last left Angel Grove, the Power Rangers were dealing with the threat of a new chief baddie, the evil Lord Zedd. The first creature he has unleashed is the strange Pirantishead, which has succeeded in using its weird freeze breath to disable to Rangers’ zords. That is, except for the T-Rex zord, which is now under Lord Zedd’s control. Let’s see what happens next in The Mutiny, Part II. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:02 E:02

Episode Title: AKA Shark in the Bathtub, Monster in the Bed
Originally Aired: March 8th, 2018

Superpowered private investigator down! When we left off last week, a sniper had shot Jessica, and her mom was in a murderous rage hell-bent on finding the shooter. This week we get a couple of cases of kidnapping, a career change, a possible cure and a missing Malcolm.

Trish’s arc this season is impressive and will continue to ramp up as she enters the full meltdown phase, but I also find her incredibly annoying. Her obsession and arrogance make me hope Jessica slaps some sense into to her. Unfortunately, Jess is too busy trying to wrangle a mass-murdering mother that she won’t be there to catch Trish when she falls. When Trish gets good news, she attributes it to the inhaler, but now that her supply has run out, I am afraid for her and anyone who cares about her over the lengths she will go to find more.

family trouble
Jessica has the most roller coaster like experiences this episode. She is nurtured and injured by her mother; she makes plans for her mom’s freedom and incarceration, she commits a felony and stops someone from doing the same thing. As sweet and damaged as Jess is it’s hard to say how this new situation will changer her. She feels less guilty about some issues and more about others so it could be a wash but I imagine she has many dark days ahead.

team up
Alisa Jones was an angry woman long before the experiments that gave her powers. Her trauma loosened her control over her emotions and provided her with the tools to murder almost anyone she wants. I don’t know what conclusion the show will come to, but I have already decided that she can never be trusted. Whether she goes to jail and can continue a relationship with Jess or if she has to die something must end, her freedom or her life.
I hope we get more Jeri next week. Now that Jeri is on the precipice of a cure or knowing that she is a lost cause and it is just a matter of time, Jeri will be fun to watch. Where is Malcolm? Did he go home to visit his parents or is he in rehab or out on a bender after Trish got him to use the inhaler? There are so many questions and possibilities I can’t wait to see what happens next week.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:06 Ep:21

Episode Title: AKA Ain’t We Got Fun
Originally Aired March 8th, 2018

Here’s to hope, hope gained and hope lost. The hope for a relationship you believed was impossible, hope for future you thought was impossible and the hope to survive a fall from the wagon. This episode was filled with characters full of hope but also full of denial to believe that all solutions or within their control or that they could be this lucky.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:06 Ep:20

“You’ve got to stop doing this. This dying thing is funny once, maybe twice.”- Xander

After what has been a severely hit and miss season for the show Season 6 finally enters into its endgame for the season as we ended the previous episode on the dramatic note of both Buffy and Tara being shot by Warren. Now while Tara’s death might have been more accidental it was of course all that was needed for Willow to fall of the magic recovery wagon which is were this episode chooses to focus as she now sets out to take out her revenge on “The Trio”.
