‘Iron Fist’ Season 2 Initial Review

*This is a spoiler free review of the first six episodes of Iron Fist’s second season* “The Elders of K’un-Lun were right. They showed way too much mercy when they banished the Hand.” Birthright.

‘Sharp Objects’ Finale Review

“It hurts me that you don't trust me to do the best for you.” Said by Adora only an episode ago, the real meaning of this line comes to light in the season finale of Sharp Objects. Throughout the series, I’ve been constantly amazed at how well Jean-Marc Vallée depicts pain. No matter how different the ...

Sharp Objects: ‘Cherry’ Review

Last week I mentioned that while the plot of Sharp Objects has stayed at a standstill, the characters in the show have shown their own forms of progression. Coming off of all the action in last week’s episode “Closer”, this episode may seem like it’s brought the show to a screeching halt, but I disagree. ...

Sharp Objects: ‘Closer’ Review

With only two episodes left in the season, the characters in Sharp Objects are progressing, though the plot seems to stay at a stand-still. It’s Calhoun Day, an annual southern-pride festival hosted by Adora on her house grounds, and the audience finally gets to see the whole town in one place. Although it’s under questionable ...

Preacher: ‘The Coffin’ Review

Preacher stands apart from other television series due to the manic energy it can create when it’s characters are fighting for what matters most to them. ‘The Coffin’ opens with such a scene as Jesse and Tulip enter into a violent brawl with the L'Angelle clan after Jody realizes that Cassidy has been set free. ...

Preacher ‘The Tombs’ Review

‘The Tombs’ continues season three’s success and offers a huge improvement to Jesse’s characterization, which fixes some of the problems found in season 2. Before we get to the critical portion let’s do some recap. Jesse continues his role as the ringmaster of a twisted fighting arena that uses people who have lost their souls. ...

Westworld: ‘The Passenger’ Review

‘The Passenger’ was the frustrating ending to an increasingly frustrating season, but not without some highlights. So, everything that had been set up in the previous nine episodes has played out and audiences were brought back to the present after learning the truth behind the season’s long running mystery. Honestly, it was not worth it ...

‘The Toys That Made Us’ Season 1 & 2 Review

**Warning: MILD spoilers for the 8 part documentary series. I will try to avoid any of the major content in the episodes** I will forever be grateful to Netflix for the download feature. It allows me (and countless of other weary commuters) to catch up/watch new and interesting shows. One of the series that I ...

Preacher: ‘Angelville’ Review

Preacher season 2 ended with quite the cliff-hanger, one that promised to explore Jesse’s dark past which had been teased throughout the second season. Now that it has returned the series builds on all those small moments to establish the next big threat facing our heroes (?). Jesse has returned to his family plantation, the ...
