Westworld: ‘Vanishing Point’ Review

Westworld basically repeats the same story structure it used last week in ‘Kiksuya’ with some minor alterations, and it makes for an average episode. The bulk of ‘Vanishing Point’ focuses on giving some meaning to the long running subplot in season 2 that is the Man in Black. William’s journey following the host uprising has ...

Westworld: ‘Kiksuya’ Review

Westworld’s largely non-linear plot structure is one of the reasons the series stands out amongst a sea of other high-quality dramas, but it can work to the show’s detriment when not handled effectively.  This leads to the only negative aspect of this week’s episode as it kills almost any momentum that the series built up ...

Legion: ‘Chapter 17’ Review

Last night’s episode on Legion revealed more of what David has planned for the Shadow King and built towards the arch-rivals’ final confrontation this season.  It did so by focusing on the supporting characters that were only seen sparingly in ‘Chapter 16’, in a slow-paced story that both moves the plot forward and allows for ...

Legion: ‘Chapter 16’ Review

In Legion’s most mind-bending episode yet, David and Syd evaluate their relationship while the Shadow King gets closer to finding his missing body.  The visuals in this episode alone make it worth watching, with amazing scene transitions, beautiful scenery and bizarre yet poignant interludes.  The opening moments with Ptonomy in the mainframe were especially fun ...

‘Black Lightning’ Season 1 Review

After consistent disappointment from the CW’s offering of superhero shows, Black Lightning served as a breath of fresh air.  A thought-full and well written series with amazing performances, Black Lightning is the type of show that makes the over-saturated genre seem relevant and worth paying attention towards. The basic premise of show is that high-school ...
