Home TV Recaps
If you're looking for a quick look back at the latest episode of your favourite TV show, then here's the place to be.
The thing about a show like this; with a meticulously thought out, cohesive, and whole season, is we know there's a ways to go. When Jessica and the team started gearing up and preparing to get Kilgrave locked up in that soundproof room, we knew it wasn't to last. That didn't stop the episode from offering some well executed thrills and twists, it did alleviate some of the tension.
Daredevil has a trend of changing the timeframe of an episode to fit its needs. Certain installments seem to depict the gang over the course of weeks, while some over the course of just a few hours on a very, very long night. Last year's "Cut Man" put this to excellent use, with an injured Matt in enemy territory and on the run, and here we find him in a similar predicament; chained up and forced butting heads with The Punisher.
Titling an episode "The Reverse-Flash Returns" after literally wiping the character from all existence at the end of last season seems like it would be just another gimmicky excuse to shoe-horn in an old villain. Like Deathstroke's appearance in Season 3 of Arrow, but instead it became a post-humous origin story for an amazing villain that summarily tells the tale of the never-ending war between The Flash and his Reverse. Well, never-ending in the original timeline at least.
Coming back from hiatus in a big way, The Flash dealt with the ramifications of learning Zoom's true identity while also fighting to stop a new speedster. What could have just been another "Rogue of the week" installment actually brought with it some interesting developments for the STAR Labs crew.
One of the issues Agents of SHIELD had early on was an extremely slow pace. At this point, the show seems to be resolving...
With a much shorter stay spent in 1986 as opposed to 1975, Rip Hunter's team of Legends come together once again after being split off from last week's cliffhanger and must devise an escape from the Russian gulag.
With the season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones mere DAYS away, we here at n3rdabl3 felt it appropriate to catch everyone up on...
Aside from the Daryl-Sasha-Abraham episode, this midseason finale of The Walking Dead together every trial and tribulation, every conflict the group has been dealing...
With such a powerful ending to close off this chapter of the season, and possibly even The Punisher's role in it, if you ever needed a single episode to point to and say that Daredevil deserves awards, it would be "Penny and Dime." Seeing these two vigilantes, two men who cannot agree on how to save the world, who cannot agree on the importance of a life or the value of humanity, come to such an unspoken understanding here is poetry. That when put in the right hands, some truly amazing things can be done with the characters of comic book lore.
If it seemed a bit rushed for Andy to simply give away the lead to Damien Darkh's base last week on Arrow, this episode seems like a sprint to the finish for Andy's story. Choosing to give him a redemption arc and be free at the end of this one episode is a bold decision, but one that pays off in a very fraternally focused episode that gives an emotional payoff to their every interaction so far this season.
Oh boy, Arrow. What are we going to do with you. Returning from hiatus after an excellent episode featuring a fully fledged superhero team up between Green Arrow and Vixen against the formidable odds of Damien Darkh that oh-so-unfortunately ended on a really lame note, decided to follow through almost completely on that note.
Perhaps learning from critics that the episodes which feature all of the cast and make rather little use of them leads to generally panned episodes, The Walking Dead has been opting to have extremely tight, focused installments on small portions of the cast. With the majority of the season featuring installments of small sections of the group, this one fell to Daryl, Abraham and Sasha as they ended up being separated once again and their mission to reunite and make it home.
Alright let's get the big one out of the way real quick: I was kind of right on the whole "Jay is Zoom" thing but we're still not quite sure in what way. The masked man's frightened reaction to seeing Jay's body fall on the ground implies that perhaps the Jay we knew wasn't necessarily a bad man, but the Jay we see in the gimp suit is. My current running theory is that The Flash's current speedster antagonist is either A) Jay from the future, who was driven mad by his addiction to Velocity 9 and thus can't kill his past self lest he completely disappear, or B) Hunter Zolomon from Earth-1. That one's actually rather straightforward, and makes me inclined to lean away from that, though it does seem that Zolomon is connected to whatever the true twist is with Zoom.
As we continue to look forward to Game of Thrones Season 7 premiere, let us continue our recap of the story so far... Theon (Ned...
Well that was one way to set us up for a crazy climax. A lot happened this week in Agents of SHIELD, and a lot of it was good.
