Sherlock 4.02 “The Lying Detective” Top 5

Sherlock 4.02 “The Lying Detective” Top 5

Coming off of a mixed reaction from Sherlock fans last week, let us take a look at how things fared in the second episode of season four with the ‘The Lying Detective’ and my top five. Early fan reports are again clashing, with some overjoyed, shouting that the show has returned to form, while others are still unhappy with the direction. For this viewer, the emotions and feels were strong, along with many outstanding moments. This created a happy challenge to narrow it down to five top moments. There are…

Top 10 Moments At The Golden Globes

Top 10 Moments At The Golden Globes

Tonight, we watched the first award show of the season. As always, life happens, so in case you missed it, I outlined my top 10 moments at the golden globes.     11 Rapping in the Intro Okay actually, the entire intro. In pure La La Land fashion, Fallon opened the show with a musical tribute to Barb, John Snow, Dolores, and nerd culture overall was obvious and fantastic. And then Tina Fey showed up!!!! This was quickly deteriorated by Fallon losing his opening monologue to a prompter mishap, but we…

Sherlock 4.01 Review

Sherlock 4.01 Review

It has been three years since the previous season debut of the globally popular BBC’s Sherlock. This time around, the producers were able to take pity on the Colonies, as there was no split in release dates between Great Britain and the United States. Americans could now watch their favorite high-functioning sociopath alongside their English brethren, avoiding spoilers on social media platforms and articles such as this one.   Fans of the show have been waiting with baited breath, snatching up any gossip, rumors or tidbits that they can find…

What Should I Read Next? Part 2

What Should I Read Next? Part 2

It has been awhile since I revisited the age old question, what should I read next? Between work and school, finding time to read for pleasure can be tough, but the holidays provide some much needed down time to catch up. While none of these books are hot off the press, they were all fantastic reads, and I highly recommend giving them a chance.     If you liked Supernatural + CSI = Read “The Harry Dresden Series” What it is: Harry Dresden is a wizard in present day Chicago,…

Legends of Tomorrow 2.08 “The Chicago Way” Top 5

Legends of Tomorrow 2.08 “The Chicago Way” Top 5

Welcome, loyal readers, to your weekly Top 5 run-down for Legends of Tomorrow. I’m pinch-hitting for Brianna this week, but she’ll be back after the winter hiatus. Fresh off of saving the world from aliens last week, the Legends return to chasing Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) and Eobard Thawne (Matt Letscher) through time this week, heading to prohibition-era Chicago and tangling with Al Capone. Let’s get right into it, shall we? #5: The Legion of Doom Smart recruiting on Thawne and Darhk’s part, getting Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) to join…

Arrow 5.09 ‘What We Leave Behind’ Top 5

Arrow 5.09 ‘What We Leave Behind’ Top 5

Once again Arrow delivered an emotional strong episode that echoed the emotional tone of the show. However, the refreshing consistency in tone, did not make up for the glaring inconsistencies with the overall storyline, individual character arcs and character development. Namely I found glaring issues with Oliver’s character development (or perhaps I should say, regression), Felicity’s storyline (or lack thereof), and Curtis’ very confusing arc. That being said, I was still able to enjoy moments of the episode. Here is my Arrow 5.09 ‘What We Leave Behind’ Top 5 moments….

Agents of SHIELD 4.08 “The Laws of Inferno Dynamics” Top 5

Agents of SHIELD 4.08 “The Laws of Inferno Dynamics” Top 5

“The Laws of Inferno Dynamics” provided us with an incredible midseason finale! There were some big action scenes that were so much fun and dynamic to watch. They tied up some storylines from the beginning of the season and opened up new stories for the next chapter of the season. Everyone’s fears about AIDA seem to be coming true. Having our Inhuman super team of Elena, Daisy, and Robbie working together was fun to see. Here are my top 5 moments from “The Laws of Inferno Dynamics.” 5. The Source of…

The Flash 3.09 “The Present” Top 5

The Flash 3.09 “The Present” Top 5

Fresh off last week’s #DCWeek mega-crossover, The Flash turns its attention back to Savitar, the season’s Big Bad, for its mid-season finale. Along the way, Barry (Grant Gustin) gets a big assist from Earth-3’s Flash, Jay Garrick (John Wesley Shipp). Let’s take a look at my Top 5 for episode 3.09, “The Present”: #5: A glimpse at Earth-3 We got an unexpected, and quite welcome, cameo from Mark Hamill, playing an alternate version of his character of The Trickster, on Earth-3, the home of Jay Garrick. Counting the 90s-era version…

The Walking Dead 7.07 “Sing Me a Song” Top 5

The Walking Dead 7.07 “Sing Me a Song” Top 5

Another 90-minute episode of The Walking Dead. Carl finally encounters Negan and we see how he fares. Rick and Aaron are off on an adventure. Spencer continues to be flippant in his hatred for Rick. Rosita shames Eugene. And Michonne is off on a mission all by herself. Everyone seems to be scattered. A scattered crew is not going to help in defeating or appeasing Negan. Here are my top 5 moments from “Sing Me a Song.” 5. Michonne’s plan Michonne has gone off by herself. We see her walking down the…

Supernatural 12.07 “Rock Never Dies” Top 5

Supernatural 12.07 “Rock Never Dies” Top 5

I love when the Boys team up with Cas and Crowley. It was a certainly a treat to have all four of them working together on a common goal this episode. They work together to get closer to capturing Lucifer, trying ultimately to put him back in the cage. Dean and Sam are summoned out to Los Angeles to help the dynamic duo of Cas and Crowley on their mission. There was certainly small but great, warm moment, some funny moments, and more of Sam being the moral compass. Here…

Legends of Tomorrow 2.07 “Invasion!” Top 5

Legends of Tomorrow 2.07 “Invasion!” Top 5

What an incredible and fun episode! The exciting conclusion of the epic CW DC TV crossover blew away my expectations. We of course had aliens (good and bad!), emotional and moral issues, IT people team-ups, metahumans, government double cross, and time travel! With so many amazing people on this show, I think this episode was so much fun. All of our heroes both save and destroy the Dominators (Is that even possible?). It was well written. The characters interacted well. I loved it. How do I pick just 5 moments?!…

Arrow 5.08 ‘Invasion’ Top 5

Arrow 5.08 ‘Invasion’ Top 5

In a landmark event, Arrow celebrated its 100th episode with a mega crossover between Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. Needless to say, it was an action packed episode. Let’s dig into Arrow 5.08 ‘Invasion’ Top 5. The Story Overall, I found ‘invasion’ to a very enjoyable episode that was befitting of the 100th episode of Arrow. However, the overall story, while intriguing, felt very contrived. Picking up from the Flash episode, Oliver, Sara, Diggle, and Ray are all kidnapped by aliens (which was carried over from Supergirl),…

Agents of SHIELD 4.07 “Deals With Our Devils” Top 5

Agents of SHIELD 4.07 “Deals With Our Devils” Top 5

We’re finally back! And we pick up right where we left off in the last episode. The Fitz/Coulson/Robbie disappearance mystery is solved. We find out what has happened to Simmons (kind of). Eli shows SHIELD just how powerful he is. Darkhold continues to show us its powers, both good and evil. It was a beautifully shot episode full of action and emotions. I loved it. Here are my top 5 moments from “Deals With Our Devils.” 5. Eli’s Powers At the end of last episode, Eli comes out of the…

The Flash 3.08 “Invasion!” Top 5

The Flash 3.08 “Invasion!” Top 5

It’s here: one of the biggest television crossovers of all time – the 4-episode “Heroes vs. Aliens” crossover among Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow. Since we have capable writers that cover all of those shows separately, I’m going to just concentrate, as usual, on The Flash. This episode begins the real arc of the crossover, when an alien species called the Dominators launches an invasion force against Earth. #5: Supergirl vs. All the Others It’s actually pretty ridiculous to call this a 4-episode crossover event. It is,…

Supergirl 2.08 “Medusa” Top 5

Supergirl 2.08 “Medusa” Top 5

It’s here, it’s here! Crossover week is here! Leave it to our favorite Girl of Steel, Supergirl, to kick things off with a stunning episode. “Medusa” throws us into the story, doing its best to intertwine Kara’s struggles with what’s about to go down in the rest of the Arrowverse with their biggest crossover yet. Things kick off with Mon El vs. Cyborg Superman, and a murderspree inside the alien bar. Mixed with Alex trying to come out to her mother during the holiday and there are some side struggles…
