‘Black Lightning 1×05: Aches and Pains’ Review

by Jason Brigger

Stars: Cress Williams, China Anne McClain, Nafessa Williams, Christine Adams | Developed by Salim Akil One of the more enjoyable aspects of the Black Lightning series is the series’ ability to balance the superhero dynamic with the characters’ personal lives and while episode five is more superhero friendly than previous episodes, it still delivers on […]

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×15: Will You Take My Hand?’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If you’ve watched Star Trek: Discovery and though “this isn’t my Star Trek” it is fair to say that now the first season of the show is done, that should not be the case. While Discovery may be different, there are many themes that are deeply woven into Star Trek lore that has made it […]

‘Black Lightning 1×04: Black Jesus’ Review

by Jason Brigger

Black Lightning’s fourth episode is a rebound episode after last week’s lackluster attempt and my love for the series returns, not that it was ever in question. The series is still doing a lot of world building but this episode seems to take a few monumental steps instead of Bill Murray’s “baby steps” from last […]

‘WWE: Bayley – Iconic Matches’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When looking for iconic women’s wrestling matches in WWE, there is no doubt that they will include the Four Horsewomen. Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair, and Becky Lynch are four wrestlers who are arguably the cornerstones of the so-called Diva’s revolution. With WWE: Bayley – Iconic Matches we get to see some of her best matches […]

‘WWE: Sasha Banks – Iconic Matches’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

We see Sasha Banks on Raw all the time now; the so-called Diva Revolution has led to a level of respect in the women’s division that they are finally getting their own Royal Rumble matches. One of the women who pushed women’s wrestling in the right direction was of course Sasha Banks, which is what […]

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×14 – The War Without, The War Within’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Now that the Discovery is back from the Mirrorverse I’m sure I’m not the only one that wanted to see the return of Lorca (Jason Isaacs). It seems if that is going to happen we’ll have to wait, as this week’s Star Trek: Discovery decides to focus on the small issue of taking on the […]

by Jason Brigger

Stars: Cress Williams, China Anne McClain, Nafessa Williams, Christine Adams | Developed by Salim Akil Black Lightning’s third episode is more focused on character building than it is world building, resulting in an episode that doesn’t stand out as much as the first two episodes in the series. The episode begins at Lawanda’s (mother of […]

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×13: What’s Past is Prologue’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Each week Star Trek: Discovery keeps on getting better and better. Now that we are thirteen episodes in, we know all the characters and what to expect from them. With that in mind, now that Lorca (Jason Isaacs) has been revealed as the new “big bad” just where is the show heading? With Lorca’s intensions […]

‘The Tunnel: Vengeance’ (Season 3) Review

by Paul Metcalf

When it comes to The Tunnel, the pairing of Karl Roebuck (Stephen Dillane) and Elise Wassermann (Clémence Poésy) is what makes the show stand out. This of course is in the similar way that the show it is based on, The Bridge, catches the audiences interest. Now with The Tunnel: Vengeance, the duo is back […]

‘Witnesses: The Complete Series 2′ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

When a show starts with the discovery of fifteen frozen bodies on a bus, you know that things are going to get dark. Witnesses: The Complete Series 2 manages to take viewers into a dark place, but the frozen bodies aren’t the most disturbing thing about this French series. When fifteen frozen bodies are found […]

‘The Gifted 1×12: Extraction / 1×13: X-Roads’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

This week, The Gifted ends with a double episode. Making the finale a double bill brings a feature-length ending to the season dealing with not dealing with Dr. Campbell (Garret Dillahunt) but starting a new chapter where surprising lines are drawn. With Dr. Campbell attending an anti-mutant summit to try to drum up national support […]

‘Black Lighting 1×01: The Resurrection’ Review

by Jason Brigger

Stars: Cress Williams, China Anne McClain, Nafessa Williams, Christine Adams | Developed by Salim Akil Black Lightning strikes (see what I did there?) a new and completely different tone for superhero shows on television and after only one episode, the show feels like it was a show Netflix created and not network television. The pilot […]

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×12: Vaulting Ambition’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Last week, the twist that everybody expected happened and for some it was no surprise. This week though, the true twist of the show was unearthed. It seems that Star Trek: Discovery has a few tricks up its sleeves to keep fans hooked, and this one was actually quite surprising. With the Emperor revealed last […]

With the second part of the first season of Star Trek: Discovery, it appears that people who have stuck with the show are being rewarded well.

‘The Gifted 1×11: 3 X 1′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

The end of the last episode of The Gifted finally revealed Esme’s (Skyler Samuels) secret, then left us hanging until the return after the Christmas break. What her character(s) give us in this episode though, is the return of a club that could take the show to the next level. Tensions are high at Mutant […]

‘Star Trek: Discovery 1×10 – Despite Yourself’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When we last left the U.S.S. Discovery before Christmas, they were in an unknown part of space and we were left waiting until the show returned to find out just where they were. Now Star Trek: Discovery is back, things are getting very interesting… Especially with Jonathan Frakes coming in as director for this episode. […]

In a world where the humans are the monsters, willing to do unspeakable things to the mutants, things are looking a little dark.

Now that we know about the origins of the Strucker family powers, The Gifted provides us with an interesting question. If Andy (Percy Hynes White) and Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) have the ability to wield hugely destructive power, should they use it?
