American Gods: ‘A Prayer for Mad Sweeney’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes American Gods started as Shadow’s journey with Mr. Wednesday, but as the series continues it starts it seems to be becoming more of an ensemble piece. Sunday’s episode focused on Laura and Mad Sweeney’s side quest which runs parallel to Shadow's journey.  One of the things that I absolutely adore ...

iZombie: ‘Return of the Dead Guy’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes iZombie's issue tends to be case of the week stories that are not connected to the larger story threads being told, which is odd considering its small episode orders.  Near the end of the show's third season, it seems that iZombie has discovered a great way to balance it's monster ...

American Gods: ‘A Murder of Gods’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes Holy fuck, gods can be killed!  Both Vulcan and Mexican Jesus bit the dust last week, and man was that interesting.  Since the gods existence are based in belief, can they really die?  Considering that gods are based on human belief, and that belief would continue after their deaths, I’m ...

iZombie: ‘Twenty Sided, Die’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes So this week's iZombie did wonders for the series long running plot threads, as well as add some new twists to an already great story.

American Gods: ‘Lemon-Scented You’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes This may be the most significant episode of American Gods thus far, as the series mythology was made far clearer, and Wednesday was confronted by the new gods. The opening scenes of this episode were fantastic as they delved deep into the state of Shadow and Laura’s relationship to each ...

iZombie: ‘Eat a Knievel’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes This week’s episode of iZombie offered up an incredibly hilarious daredevil Liv, and made some surprising new developments in the season’s ongoing plot threads. Liv on daredevil stunt-man brain was just the best thing to watch.  She was horribly inappropriate on the job, which always makes for the best comedy ...

American Gods: ‘Git Gone’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes American Gods takes a break from it’s usual format in the fourth episode to do a one hour character piece on Shadow’s wife, Laura.  And it was fucking awesome. As mentioned earlier, this episode is a complete format break, as it does not include an opening vignette.  That being said, ...

iZombie: ‘Dirt Nap Time’ Review

Written By: Mathew "JJ" Simoes This week’s iZombie offered up a fairly humorous episode that moves the several plot threads forward in unexpected ways. I must say iZombie is a great show, and while I was somewhat critical of the dominatrix case story, it turns out there was more to it than previously thought (at ...

American Gods: ‘Head Full of Snow’ Review

Written By: Mathew “JJ” Simoes This week’s episode of American Gods may be the best one yet, though as there are only three episodes, that’s not saying much.  The season’s central narrative moves forward with a fresh bit of comedy, and other old gods experience the pitfalls of being an immigrant in America. The highlight ...
