Luke Cage S:01 E:04


Episode Title: Step in the Arena
Originally Aired: September 30th 2016

The fourth episode of Luke Cage takes us back to the man’s origin and reveals multiple surprises about his past. The bulk of the show takes place in the past but it is juxtaposed to a situation that finds Luke and Connie in a tight spot just like Luke was while doing time at Seagate Prison. One of the biggest surprises is that Luke Cage is not his real name; he is actually Carl Lucas former police officer and member of the military.

lukecage-arena-crownNot only did this episode explore the backstory for Luke, as we know him it also hinted at his comic book origin as well. We got to see him in his original costume from when he debuted in 1972, and as Luke himself said, he looked like a damn fool. Don’t worry I won’t forget about the swear jar, I’m just a little light on cash right now. There are three bright spots to this episode make it entertaining even if it does drag a little at times.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:04 Ep:14


Episode Title: Goodbye Iowa

Original Air Date: February 15, 2000

“I’m going to the crime scene to see what I can find out. You guys research the polgara demon. I want to know where it is. When I find it, I’m going to make it pay for taking that kid’s life. I’ll make him die in ways he can’t even imagine. That probably would’ve sounded more commanding if I wasn’t wearing my yummy sushi pyjamas.” – Buffy

So with Buffy now back with the Scoobies after Professor Walsh attempted to have her killed, this week’s episode is largely about dealing with the fallout from those events, especially now that her Frankenstein creation “Adam” has awoken and escaped the lab after killing her at the end of the last episode.

I’ve talked before about how Batman and Robin are pretty good and catching and locking up Gotham’s crooks, but somehow the criminals always seem to make it out again. Today we see one of Batman’s arch foes back out on the street, but strangely he’s desperate to be behind bars again! Burgess Meredith returns as the Penguin in The Penguin’s Nest.

Episode Title: The I In Team

Original Air Date: February 8, 2000

“Professor Walsh. That simple little recon you sent me on…wasn’t a raccoon. Turns out it was me trapped in the sewers with a faulty weapon and two of your pet demons. If you think that’s enough to kill me, you really don’t know what a slayer is. Trust me when I say you’re gonna find out.” – Buffy

This week we have another of those episodes which make it so hard to defend this season as Buffy and Riley continue to grow ever more closer, she starts to work more with “The Initiative” as she assists them on their patrols as they set out to capture a Polgara Demon unaware of the plans which Professor Walsh has put in motion. Elsewhere without Buffy the Scoobies find themselves at something of a lost as Xander sets out to support himself selling Boost bars and Willow well its another episode of her generally moping around so there’s that to look forward to.

Episode Title: Code of the Streets
Originally Aired: September 30th 2016

Reviewing a show that airs on Netflix is a lot different that writing about a show that is made by almost any other company. Its episodes are dropped all at once, so on September 30th you could have spent 13 hours, watched every second of the show, and not have to worry about tuning in for an hour each of the next 12 weeks. While you can avoid hearing specific spoilers about the show, keeping the suspense that the creators of the show hoped to provide almost 100% pure, it is much harder to avoid the general talk about the show. Is the show a hit, and even if it is, what are peoples biggest complaints and what did the viewers tend to enjoy. I want to address a couple of those complaints at the start of this article because I think it is important and because I completely disagree with them. Continue reading Luke Cage S:01 E:02

Original Airdate: September 8, 1993

“I’ve got to learn to just do the damage and leave town. It’s the “stay and gloat” that gets me every time.” – Ethan

It’s time for another Buffy birthday as this week she celebrates her 19th and suprisingly it’s one where nothing goes wrong….well for her atleast. For Giles however things don’t go as well for feeling that he is being slowly fazed out of the group, especially as Buffy is so keen to gush over how admiration for her teacher and secret head of the “The Initiative” Professor Maggie Walsh. In a bid to cheer himself up Giles soon finds himself on a bender with his former friend and worshipper of chaos Ethan Rayne only to find himself the next morning turned into a Fyarl demon.
