Doctor Who S10E2 Review: “Smile”

Doctor Who

🙂 The Doctor and Bill just pop out for a moment while the kettle is boiling to explore a future space colony with no people, lots of robots, emojis for communication, and a deadly secret. Did the episode’s scant plot (and abrupt solution) matter, given the strong dialogue and characterization? Grab a cuppa and join Jason and special guest James Thomson as we break the episode down into its constituent parts and use it as fertilizer in a beautiful garden.

The Flash S3E18 Review: “Abra Kadabra”

The Flash

The magic is back on this week’s episode of “The Flash”. At least Moze tries in earnest to convince Tony and Lisa. The episode presented a nice change of pace. Team Flash faced new challenges this week as Abra Kadabra waged a magical war on Central City.

Arrow S5E17 Review: “Kapiushon”

Arrow

To Russia, comrades! This week’s flashback-heavy episode follows past Oliver carrying out his vendetta against Kovar, while in the present he is tormented by Prometheus. We discuss the troubling portrayal of torture, the weird casual nature of Sarin gas, and why it’s probably not a good idea to trust a strange woman who promises to help you with your inner monster.

Arrow S5E16 Review: “Checkmate”

Arrow

Prometheus is officially unmasked this week, and things ratchet up a notch. So, naturally, team Speedy Arrowcast isn’t done with outlandish theories. We don our silk kimono to discuss why you don’t bring the villain’s wife to a knife fight, why teaming up with mysterious hackers usually has a downside, and the inevitable attack on Star City by a horde of monkeys. And tune in for some STUNNING NEWS about our show’s mascot, Biff Conklin.
