The River 1.7 Review: "The Experiment"

By John Keegan

the-river-icon“The River” takes a step back from the psychological horrors of the previous episode and turns to something a bit more familiar to genre fans in this installment. I would call this the “Resident Evil episode”, because that was precisely what was coming to mind from the start. And given my usual lack of enthusiasm for zombie stories (closer to loathing, actually), I was surprised at how well this episode worked for me.

The Walking Dead 2.12 Review: "Better Angels"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

The-Walking-Dead-iconI think it's safe to say that this season hasn't been as impressive, overall, as I'd hoped it would be. There have been some high points, to be sure, but the bulk of the drama unfolding at the farm has been disappointingly bland and underwhelming.

Lost Girl 1.9 Review: "Fae Day"

By John Keegan and Paul Pearson

Lost-Girl-Season-2-thumbThis installment comes across as a bit innocuous, a low-key story compared to the Wham! moments of "Vexed" and just what's needed to keep things moving in a fun little show like "Lost Girl". A good old fashioned Fae holiday, combined with a chance for the show's ensemble darkhorse to spread her wings a little, certainly doesn't disappoint.

Spartacus: Vengeance 2.7 Review: "Sacramentum"

By John Keegan

spartacus-posterBecause nothing happens without purpose in a season of “Spartacus”, unless the real world intervenes, all that tension between the rebel factions was going to bubble to the surface before long. With Agron feeling more and more on the outside, especially with Oenomeus back in the fold, it was almost inevitable that he would rescue a large group of his own people over Gauls. And it takes no time at all for them to get out of Agron’s control.

Grimm 1.14 Review: "Plumed Serpent"

By John Keegan

Grimm-2When it comes to fleshing out a relatively standard story involving a semi-obsessed “girlfriend” who wants to take out the competition, one can do a lot worse than to cast Danielle Panabaker as a fire-dancing stripper. It left me wishing, on some level, that she could stick around as a supporting character for a while, especially since they dropped the ball on what could have been a perfect opportunity to pull Juliette into the fold.

Awake 1.2 Review: "The Little Guy"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

awakereviewiconThe second episode of this show establishes how the concept will work on a weekly basis. Detective Britten is going to solve a pair of cases with at least one tie-in between them. There are apparently going to be ongoing revelations about the Britten family that show how they are coping with the loss of one of its members.

Justified 3.8 Review: "Watching the Detectives"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

Justified_iconRobert Quarles tried to pull off something that would makes things real complicated for his two chief opponents. There were mixed results that followed. For a time, all of the investigations converged towards Raylan, with the very real possibility that he might be booted from the Marshal Service.

Merlin 4.10 Review: "A Herald of the New Age"

By John Keegan and Gregg Wright

merlinThis episode is fighting an uphill battle from the start. It comes right after a pretty significant change in the status quo, but conceptually it's an episode that could almost have been put anywhere in the season. This is the episode that should deal with the aftermath of Gwen's infidelity and banishment.

The Walking Dead 2.11: Judge, Jury and Executioner

By Karen Moul

The Walking Dead on AMCIt was another slow week on Herschel’s farm as our little band of survivors hemmed and hawed and argued about what to do with Randall. There is no doubt that Randall’s people are a nasty bunch, and if there’s one thing we’ve learned this season it’s that the living are just as dangerous as the dead. We just wish it wouldn’t take this group two weeks to make every decision.

While Randall was the center of everyone’s attention, the action actually revolved around Dale, who spent the day trying to convince the gang that killing Randall would be a mistake. His role on the show has always been to provide the voice of morality, and he really went for this week.

It was interesting to see how the group responded. Most preferred to let Rick make the tough decision. It’s a no-win situation, because time and again we’ve seen them ask him to lead and then turn on him when things don’t go well, which only feeds Rick’s self-doubt. In these situations, he could take a lesson from Shane. Say what you want about Shane, but right or wrong he makes quick decisions and never doubts himself, always certain that he’s made the right call.

Ringer 1.16 Review: "You're Too Pretty to Go to Jail"

By John Keegan and Henry Tran

ringer_iconThis episode was full of characters standing around, talking. Which is not at all surprising being that the show is a soap opera playing in primetime, and daytime soaps have many scenes of just characters talking instead of taking action. It's not really all that different from what this show has been doing all season, but my interest in what happens to all of these characters continues to decline.
