Buffy The Vampire Slayer S:06 Ep:17

Spike we need muscle, not color commentary” – Xander

Season six really is somthing of a troublesome beast as just when I’m ready to write the season off for it’s overwelming focus on relationship issues than monsters or general lack of a big evil it pulls out an episode like this one which sees the audience questioning their perception of the show when Buffy is stung by a demon she is left believing that she is in an asylum and that Sunnydale, her friends and her slayer powers are all in her mind.

Episode Title: Minerva, Mayhem and Millionaires
Original Airdate: March 14, 1968

Well, as they say, all good things must come to an end. We have reached the 120th, and final, episode of Batman. The question, though, is if this series goes out on a high note or not. As we know, the third season of the series has been a bit shaky. Let’s find out what happens when Zsa Zsa Gabor is up to no good in Minerva, Mayhem and Millionaires.

Batman S:03 E:25

Episode Title: The Entrancing Dr. Cassandra
Original Airdate: March 7, 1968

In recent years, the lack of major films directed by women has become quite a hot-button issue. As we speak, Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig is only the fifth woman to ever be nominated for a best director Academy Award. However, though underrepresented, women have been directing movies since the dawn of film. One pioneer in the field was Ida Lupino. She had an over 40 year long career working as an actress and directed several films along the way. Today, she shows up in Gotham City as Dr. Cassandra Spellcraft in our penultimate episode, The Entrancing Dr. Cassandra. Continue reading Batman S:03 E:25

Episode Title: Mighty Morphin’ Mutants
Original Airdate: May 16, 1994

We’ve got just two episode to go here in the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Rita’s still got a few tricks up her sleeve, though.

The Punisher S:01 E:13

Episode Title: Memento Mori
Originally Aired: November 17th 2017

We have reached the conclusion, the final battle in Frank Castle’s war on the men who murdered his family and left him for dead. The only one left standing is William “Billy” Russo, former Cerberus team member, former best friend and the series’ one true villain. Most of the bad guys up to this point did it for the money or for a twisted sense of justice, Billy did it out of a sense of entitlement and enjoyment. He is the first bad guy to attack innocent people, making him the one we want put down the hardest. Continue reading The Punisher S:01 E:13

Batman S:03 E:24

Episode Title: The Joker’s Flying Saucer
Original Airdate: February 29, 1968

We are down to the last few episodes of Batman and we have seen all the major villains put in their final appearances. That is, with one notable exception. It seems appropriate that the biggest of all of Batman’s foes should be the last iconic villain to put in an appearance on this show. We bid farewell to Cesar Romero’s take on the clown prince of crime in today’s episode, The Joker’s Flying Saucer. Continue reading Batman S:03 E:24

The Punisher S:01 E:12

Episode Title: Home
Originally Aired: November 17th, 2017

If home is where the heart is, where does Frank’s heart belong? Is it in the afterlife with his wife and kids or is it in the real-world as an agent of vengeance and justice? We get the answer in this week’s episode of The Punisher but it isn’t straight forward, it, like everything else in this show is complicated and ugly. Continue reading The Punisher S:01 E:12

Batman S:03 E:23

Episode Title: I’ll be a Mummy’s Uncle
Original Airdate: February 29, 1968

This series, though known for its interpretation of several famous Batman villains from the comics, also created several new bad guys throughout its run. Without question, my favorite of all the crooks created for this series is King Tut, as portrayed by Victor Buono. We’re just a few episodes away from the end of the series, though, which brings us to the final appearance of the Yale professor who thinks he’s Egyptian royalty. Here he is in I’ll be a Mummy’s Uncle. Continue reading Batman S:03 E:23

So we’ve finally arrived at the wedding of Xander and Anya which it seems to have been the only real plotline this season for the pair.
