‘Steven Universe 2×15: Keystone Motel’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Not now.” ‘Keystone Motel’ is a small episode concerned with big things. It feels overfilled and sometimes unfocused, but if its look at a long-lasting queer relationship is uneven, it’s impressive that it’s happening at all. Garnet, looking for space in the wake of her fight with Pearl, rides along with Greg and Steven to […]

‘Gravity Falls 2×12: A Tale of Two Stans’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Wherever we go, we go together.” ‘A Tale of Two Stans’ is an episode with a lot to live up to. The mid-season cliffhanger of ‘Not What He Seems’ left us staring at a doppleganger of the irascible and suddenly more-than-humorously-untrustworthy Grunkle Stan, a major upset to the show’s mystery of the week status quo. […]

‘Steven Universe 2×14: Cry For Help’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I’m just so excited to be here. You see, I haven’t exactly been myself lately.” ‘Cry For Help’ is a compact, emotional quarter-hour of television showcasing each of the Gems and how tentative their connections to one another remain even after a season of growth and change. Ameythst is the show’s eternal troublemaker, but in […]

‘True Detective 2×04: Down Will Come’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Right now there’s so many things to go about the wrong way, I’m losing my fucking vision.” ‘Down Will Come’ does exactly one thing right. When the grindingly stereotypical Mexican gangsters are dead, when the shell casing have stopped clattering, Ani and Ray don’t look like winners, they look like they want to puke and […]

‘WWE Payback 2015′ Blu-ray Review

by Chris Cummings

Okay, so it’s time for one of those B-shows of the annual WWE calendar, Payback, a show that, on-paper, sounds okay, but isn’t offering too much in terms of fresh or exciting new feuds in my view. We’ll see how the matches go, shall we? The opening match of Payback sees Sheamus taking on Dolph […]

‘Hannibal 3×06: Dolce’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“You expect us to believe that you lost yourself in the hot darkness of Hannibal Lecter’s mind?” That visceral snap as the rubber cord Bedelia is using to tie off her arm pops out of her mouth is like a short, sharp shove off a pier and into a storm-tossed sea. ‘Dolce’ is in some […]

The latest release in Hasbro’s Transformers Combiner Wars range, Cyclonus is a repaint of the existing Silverbolt mold, replete with new wings and new head sculpts. Combining with a number of different bots – be they Autobot and Decepticon (Cyclonus apparently doesn’t discriminate) – Cyclonus becomes the awesome gestalt Galvatronus!

‘True Detective 2×03: Maybe Tomorrow’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Pissed myself.” True Detective lifted the lid on the mystery of Ray’s maybe death after an entire week of ferocious speculation to reveal Colin Farrell’s suicidally droopy mustache, a sight which avoids occasioning disappointment only in the respect that at least you’re not seeing it in the mirror. It’s not a worse show for having chickened out […]
