  • ‘Revolution: Kashmir’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 07:00 pm GMT -4

    I rag on ‘Revolution’ a lot. And I mean a lot. It’s not that hard, given it’s obvious faults when it comes to things like plot and characterization - all the things needed to make a story, well, watchable. So I’m always surprised when ‘Revolution’ manages to pull off a pretty decent episode like this one. […]

  • ‘The Walking Dead: Hounded’ – Recap

    Posted Monday, November 19th, 2012 07:05 pm GMT -4

    This week, we find out the source of Rick’s mysterious phone calls and an unexpected meeting challenges the Survivors’ safety. A few weeks back, I posted that nothing bad was ever allowed to happen to Glenn and Maggie because they are young and in love and still seem to believe in the inherent goodness of […]

  • ‘American Horror Story: I Am Anne Frank, Pt. 2′ – Recap

    Posted Friday, November 16th, 2012 07:00 pm GMT -4

    Damn, this is a gonzo show. Last week, the most out-there element of the plot was a woman who claimed to be Anne Frank claiming that the already-evil Dr. Arden was, in fact, a former Nazi Doctor. This week? That plot seemed downright…normal as AHS brought in a series of shocking events that made this […]

  • ‘The Walking Dead: Say the Word’ – Recap

    Posted Monday, November 12th, 2012 05:30 pm GMT -4

    This week, the survivors try to cope with the immediate aftermath of last week’s devastating losses, and Andrea realizes that life with the Governor isn’t as perfect as it seems. So I originally thought that when it came to the Governor, no imagery could be more creepy than a bunch of zombie heads floating in […]

  • ‘American Horror Story: I am Anne Frank, Pt. 1′ – Recap

    Posted Thursday, November 8th, 2012 09:00 pm GMT -4

    ‘American Horror Story’ is a tough show to judge, let alone recap. The first season was kind of a modern touchstone of gonzo television writing that even when it wasn’t necessarily good, it was pretty darn entertaining. This new season of AHS, ‘Asylum’ is more subdued and plot-related, and for awhile I worried that the […]

  • ‘Revolution: The Children’s Crusade’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, November 6th, 2012 02:00 pm GMT -4

    So after some Hurricane Sandy-related snafus, we’re finally back with Revolution, and this one promised to be good. “The source of the Blackout! Revealed!” And…yeah, they kinda did reveal it, but the overall problem with ‘Revolution’ as a show is that even revelations like this feel relatively wasted, and usually buried under a mountain of […]

  • ‘The Walking Dead: Sick’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012 01:00 pm GMT -4

    This week, Rick has to deal with an unexpected problem. Well, readers, I’m having a dilemma. Nothing dire, really, something pretty existential. And that it’s that I can’t find much wrong with last night’s episode. ‘The Walking Dead’ has always had graceful openers and closers, and nothing has quite been able to top that very […]

  • ‘Alphas: Need to Know’ – Recap

    Posted Wednesday, October 17th, 2012 10:00 am GMT -4

    This week, the penultimate episode before next week’s finale propels the Alphas forward toward’s Stanton Parrish’s doomsday. I recently rewatched the pilot episode of ‘Alphas’. I was struck by how generally light the show was, despite the murder investigations, despite the team member’s troubled pasts and homelives. The team has always felt like a small […]

  • ‘Revolution: Soul Train’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, October 16th, 2012 09:00 pm GMT -4

    This week, Charlie and the gang discover a startling development in General Munroe’s plan for countrywide domination. Oh, ‘Revolution’. I don’t know what to do with you. Your concept is irresistible, and a few of your cast members are a pleasure to watch, but on a week to week basis, it’s been pretty hard to […]

  • ‘Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes: New Avengers’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, October 16th, 2012 10:00 am GMT -4

    This week, Kang the Conqueror resurfaces, forcing The Avengers to use a startling emergency protocol. So, Kang’s kind of been… sitting around in prison for awhile, after being captured in the first season, trying to recover his world after a timerift disaster. While imprisoned and being watched carefully by the Avengers after an energy spike […]

  • ‘The Walking Dead: Seed’ – Recap

    Posted Monday, October 15th, 2012 08:00 pm GMT -4

    The third season of ‘The Walking Dead’ premiered last night to a whopping 10.9 million viewers. Was it worth the wait? Let’s discuss. So last season, the survivors found a farm and lost a little girl, and in general, it was a pretty bad time for everyone involved (viewers often included). But in the opening […]

  • ‘Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes: The Deadliest Man Alive’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, October 9th, 2012 11:00 am GMT -4

    This week, The Avengers finally rescue the Hulk from General Ross to find that he might not be so happy to see them. Okay, so you might say that I have, let’s call it an “emotional bias”, about this entire storyline. I have long been a fan of EMH’s take on The Hulk – instead […]

  • ‘Revolution: No Quarter’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 09:00 pm GMT -4

    This week, we get a closer look at the rebellion effort to reclaim the United States, and Aaron and Maggie get closer to finding out about what may have caused the Blackout. One thing I actually really enjoy about ‘Revolution’ is the way it captures America’s militia-run, electricity-free future is how much it may mirror […]

  • ‘Alphas: Life After Death’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 07:00 pm GMT -4

    This week, the team tries to cope with losing one of their own. ‘Life After Death’ is a deliberately slow, contemplative episode, following last week’s heart-wrenching conclusion, in which the team tries to cope with the aftermath of Dani’s death. As opposed to most episodes of ‘Alphas’, there’s very little action and little of the […]

  • ‘Ultimate Spider-Man: The Iron Octopus’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 10:00 am GMT -4

    This week, Peter learns of a potential betrayal when Doctor Octopus attacks SHIELD and Oscorp. So the past few entries in ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ have been flights of fancy, one shot stories and for the most part I’ve been dying for them to return to the faint semblance of main plot they have. And this week, […]
