75% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 3 - Zari (TV Episode) The cast is solid and endearing, the jokes can be stupid but some are pretty amusing almost in spite of it. ‐ TV Equals

78% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 3 - Aruba-Con (TV Episode) Quite frankly, shabby conception on the part of the writers' room almost across the board.‐ TV Equals

80% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 3 - Freakshow (TV Episode) Both of these episodes are fun, but exceptionally lacking in the logic department, needless to say. ‐ TV Equals

90% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Aruba (TV Episode) All in all, a pretty solid finale that topped off a generally entertaining season, which I would have to go on and say was a vast improvement over the initial season.‐ TV Equals

100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Doomworld (TV Episode) ...this was another fun run of episodes that was highly enjoyable overall.‐ TV Equals

73% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Fellowship of the Spear (TV Episode) Be that as it may, it was a great episode, not in the least because of the unexpected twists along the way...‐ TV Equals

100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Moonshot (TV Episode) That said, it was a pretty fantastic episode...‐ TV Equals

91% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Land of the Lost (TV Episode) While a bit slight and kind of a "bottle" episode- albeit split into two bottles, as it were- it was nonetheless a lot of fun, if, as ever, occasionally a bit flawed in the logic department.‐ TV Equals

67% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Camelot/3000 (TV Episode) Hopefully, the show will get back on track moving forward, with the end of the "bad" Rip storyline seemingly in sight. We shall see.‐ TV Equals

88% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Turncoat (TV Episode) Fortunately, if you could get past the nonsense, it was still a fun episode...‐ TV Equals

89% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - The Legion of Doom (TV Episode) ... it's precisely that quality that made the second of the two episodes, "Legion of Doom" so much fun.‐ TV Equals

100% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Raiders of the Lost Art (TV Episode) Whatever the case, so good so far.‐ TV Equals

100% Gotham: Season 2 - Wrath of the Villains: Mr. Freeze (TV Episode) Thankfully, those of us worrying that the show might go the deadly Schumacher/Schwarzenegger route had a load lifted off our shoulders when it became relatively clear that this version of the iconic character would not be making corny quips.‐ TV Equals

80% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: The Son of Gotham (TV Episode) It certainly sets the stage for a big showdown between the Penguin and Gordon and company to go up against Theo and the Order and their people, which should be something. All in all, a solid episode...‐ TV Equals

46% Gotham: Season 1 - Rogues' Gallery (TV Episode) All in all, it was a strong episode, with some great moments sprinkled throughout, notably the stuff at Arkham.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2018
72% Gotham: Season 1 - Lovecraft (TV Episode) All in all, a pretty solid mid-season finale, after an admittedly lackluster previous episode.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2018
54% Gotham: Season 1 - Harvey Dent (TV Episode) The problem is, as aforementioned, this was supposed to be about Harvey Dent and the introduction of his character, and while we got some iconic moments... it felt so brief and almost tacked onto the episode, Dent barely registered.‐ TV Equals

68% Gotham: Season 1 - The Mask (TV Episode) When all was said and done, though, it was a solid enough episode, I thought, with some great character moments for Bruce, Alfred, Gordon and Bullock throughout.‐ TV Equals

92% Gotham: Season 1 - Penguin's Umbrella (TV Episode) This was about as perfect an episode of the show as one could ask for. Everything came together beautifully, the plotlines were genuinely impressive and show a knack amongst the writers for long-range storytelling that bodes well for its future.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2018
72% Gotham: Season 1 - Spirit of the Goat (TV Episode) This was a decent enough episode for the Bullock moments alone, which explained a lot about the character.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2018
64% Gotham: Season 1 - Viper (TV Episode) Good stuff all around, even with the inherent ridiculousness of the main Viper storyline.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2018
74% Gotham: Season 1 - Arkham (TV Episode) After the bordering on silly "Balloonman" episode, this one firmly reestablished the fact that "Gotham" wasn't playing around. The 60's era "Batman" this ain't, to be sure.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Jul 17, 2018
63% Gotham: Season 1 - The Balloonman (TV Episode) This was probably the episode that came closest to being ridiculous on the whole, but somehow managed not to completely cross that line.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2018
71% Gotham: Season 1 - Selina Kyle (TV Episode) All in all, another solid episode, with some decidedly disturbing undertones that only help to serve the show's overall gritty feel in comparison to some of the other iterations of the Batman character.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Jul 16, 2018
79% Gotham: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode) A decent start to a promising series that could well end up being one of the better comic-derived shows on television, though it's got a ways to go before it achieves "Arrow" levels of awesomeness.‐ TV Equals

77% Falling Skies: Season 3 (TV, 2013) Reasonably clever.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted May 22, 2018
100% Vikings: Season 5 (TV, 2017-2018) While it may lack the budget or the big names of that show, Vikings nonetheless still engages, entertains and enthralls, thanks to a winning cast, grounded-in-history plotlines and bloody battles and sexy moments that push the boundaries.‐ TV Equals

67% American Horror Story: Cult - Great Again (TV Episode) Finally, after several dubiously plotted and questionably executed season finales in a row, American Horror Story: Cult managed to stick the landing, with an ending that was as solid as the best of the series.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Nov 16, 2017
80% American Horror Story: Cult - Charles (Manson) in Charge (TV Episode) Whatever the case, this season has been one wild ride, that's for sure. I'd have to say it's my favorite since "Coven" on the whole, and arguably the most cohesive, "Roanoke" notwithstanding.‐ TV Equals

81% The Walking Dead: Season 8 - The Big Scary U (TV Episode) I've quite enjoyed the season so far. Any complaints that last season was too slow-moving have been readily addressed- there's already been more action this season damn near than the last two seasons combined.‐ TV Equals

75% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Into the Forest I Go (TV Episode) To say the least, the mid-season fall finale of "Star Trek: Discovery" was everything a fan of the show could want, and might even have been ground-breaking enough to convince a few naysayers in the process.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Nov 14, 2017
89% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum (TV Episode) The most recent episode was the first one for me that actually felt sort of like old-school Star Trek. Not that the other episodes were bad or anything, or felt that much out of character with the previous series.‐ TV Equals

100% Star Trek: Discovery: Chapters 1 & 2 - Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad (TV Episode) That's a lot of ground to cover in one episode, but, thanks to the whole time loop conceit, the episode was able to tackle it all and more, and in a convincing way.‐ TV Equals

91% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Shutdown -R (TV Episode) As for this season, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and thought it was a definite step up from the last one.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Dec 14, 2017
75% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.8_Stage3.Torrent (TV Episode) Until then, lots to savor. I'm halfway tempted to re-watch the entire season to date again, I've liked it so much.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Dec 7, 2017
100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.7_Dont-Delete-Me.Ko (TV Episode) This has been nothing if not a compelling season thus far, more than making up for any shortcomings of the previous season, which had a tendency to drag a bit for many people.‐ TV Equals

100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.5_Kill-Process.Inc (TV Episode) Episode six featured some valuable character background for Angela that helped us understand why she felt compelled to do what she did- and the repercussions of her doing it on her already fragile state of mind.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2017
82% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.6_Fredrick+Tanya.Chk (TV Episode) I'm kind of at a loss as to what to expect from the final run of episodes this season, as many of these last few episodes easily could have functioned as a season finale as it is.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2017
92% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.4_Runtime-Error.R00 (TV Episode) The fifth episode featured an awe-inspiring sequence which looked to be shot in one continuous take, even if some computer trickery might have been used in key places.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
91% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.3_Metadata.Par2 (TV Episode) I'm loving this season so far.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Nov 10, 2017
100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.1_Undo.Gz (TV Episode) These last two episodes of "Mr. Robot" both helped to propel the plot forward and filled-in-the-blanks about the past in a way that helped things make that much more sense...‐ TV Equals

100% American Horror Story: Cult - Drink the Kool-Aid (TV Episode) I love the socio-political bent, and if Murphy's point is sometimes as hard to follow as Kai's, at least there's never a dull moment. ‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2017
86% American Horror Story: Cult - Valerie Solanas Died for Your Sins: Scumbag (TV Episode) This season keeps getting better and better the more we know, and Murphy and his writers have perfectly plotted some real curve-balls this season that I genuinely didn't see coming.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
82% American Horror Story: Cult - Mid-Western Assassin (TV Episode) Obviously, the timing of the episode was too close for comfort to the tragic events in Las Vegas, so producer Ryan Murphy wisely trimmed things down a bit.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2017
85% American Horror Story: Cult - Holes (TV Episode) The good definitely outweighs the bad, overall.‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Oct 5, 2017
73% American Horror Story: Cult - Neighbors from Hell (TV Episode) Nothing is deadlier than horror than being boring. That's way scarier than any killer clowns, am I right?‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
88% American Horror Story: Cult - Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (TV Episode) I can't imagine animal lovers cared too much for that one, but yeah, they went there. ‐ TV Equals
Read More | Posted Sep 20, 2017
84% American Horror Story: Cult - Election Night (TV Episode) While it remains to be seen whether or not the rest of the season lives up to the premiere, so good so far. Now bring on the Cult- and the bees. ‐ TV Equals

85% Mr. Mercedes: Season 1 (TV, 2017) I may have my quibbles about some of it, particularly in terms of the unnecessary changes, but overall, it's a pretty solid adaptation to date. ‐ TV Equals

10% Marvel's Inhumans: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Indeed, for such an impressively mounted endeavor, it sure looks pretty cheap, for the most part, leaving one to wonder if the show wouldn't have been better off simply forgoing the IMAX thing and going straight-to-TV.‐ TV Equals
