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 […]

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 […]

‘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.

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.

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.
