Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:05 Ep:16

Episode Title: The Body

Original Air Date: February 27th 2001

“No, I mean, it’s a myth that it’s a myth. There is a Santa Claus.” – Anya

So this was one of the episodes I was dreading having to cover, not because its a bad episode, infact it might be one of the most important episodes in the whole series as following on from the stinger of the previous episode here we get to rewatch Buffy return home to find her mother slumped on the couch having died from a brain aneurysm.

Joyce’s death came as a major surprise to fans of the show especially when she’d always been such a background presence on the show, helping to keep Buffy grounded especially when her slaying duties were putting a strain on her and while Joyce might not always have known how to handle her daughters calling she was always there for her. As such to have her ripped out only makes her departure all the more emotional, more so when the episode highlights just how much she meant to the group aswell.

Wonder Woman S:01 E:08

Episode Title: Last of the Two Dollar Bills
Original Airdate: January 8, 1977

When it comes to money, old Thomas Jefferson kind of got the short end of the stick. Washington’s on the one dollar bill, honest Abe got the five, but old Tom got stuck on the two dollar bill…which is hardly ever used these days. Well, today’s episode of Wonder Woman answers the question of why that’s the case in Last of the Two Dollar Bills. Continue reading Wonder Woman S:01 E:08

Butchers, entomologists and cold-blooded killers, oh my. Oh my indeed, Danny is offered and accepts the grand duel challenge from Madame Gao. Danny must take on four of The Hand’s best fighters in a three round tournament to save the life of the chemist’s daughter.

Batman S:02 E:51

Episode Title: A Piece of the Action
Original Airdate: March 1, 1967

On today’s episode of Batman we journey into the realm of the crossover episode. That’s where characters from another popular program show up for a little fun. It’s like Gary Coleman showing up as Arnold Jackson on The Facts of Life, or Laverne and Shirley dropping by to visit the Fonze on Happy Days. Well, in this case, we get the main characters from William Dozier’s other late 60’s superhero series, The Green Hornet. That means guest appearances by Van Williams as well as perhaps the most famous (globally speaking) guest star to ever appear on the show, Bruce Lee. Get ready for A Piece of the Action.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:05 Ep:15

  Episode Title: I Was Made To Love You

Original Air Date: February 20th 2001

“Ow. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve had it with super-strong little women who aren’t me.” – Buffy

Despite on the surface seemingly like another monster of the week episode, this one actually when viewed knowing what lies ahead for the series really marks a lot of key moments for the series. The main focus though is on a robot girlfriend who arrives in Sunnydale looking for her creator while at the same time harbouring a serious jealous streak which could spell trouble for anyone who gets in her way.

Episode Title: The Pluto File
Original Airdate: December 25, 1976

There are certain actors that are well known for playing villains. There’s just a certain quality that makes them particularly suited to that type of role. Now, maybe it’s just me, but if I were a casting director, my first instinct for casting a bad guy would probably not be to go for an actor who is most famous for playing one of TV’s most famous sitcom dads. Then again, actors pride themselves on versatility. Forget about The Brady Bunch for a while, because this episode gives us Robert Reed (Mike Brady himself) as a sinister agent working for the Nazis in The Pluto File.

Episode Title: Wheel of Misfortune
Original Airdate: November 1, 1993

We’ve seen a bunch of ridiculous villains on this series so far, but this week we’ve got something pretty wacky. Eye creatures…I get, evil frogs…to be expected, but today’s monster is like some sort of cross between a kaiju film and an episode of Antiques Roadshow. Let’s see what happens in today’s episode, Wheel of Misfortune. Continue reading Mighty Morphin Power Rangers S:01 E:27

Iron Fist S:01 E:05

Episode Title: Under Leaf Pluck Lotus
Originally Aired: March 17 2017

I haven’t mentioned it before but I am a fan of the opening credits for Iron Fist. It features a warrior made of molten iron going through a kata with flashes of yellow to represent the fist. The theme has a lot of bass and reverb in it and I always find it enjoyable even though it doesn’t kick off the show and comes a few minutes later, interrupting the story. A lot has changed in a short while for our main characters and we have added a new character to the roster if only for a short while. Clair Temple has made her at least her first appearance in Iron Fist. Continue reading Iron Fist S:01 E:05
