Preacher: ‘Mumbai Sky Tower’ Review

Written by: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes Preacher's second episode of the new season picks up exactly where the premiere left off, with Jesse confronting the Saint of Killers outside the motel.  In true Preacher fashion, Jesse was saved at the very last minute by a truck taking the bullet for him which then rammed the Saint, ...

Preacher: ‘On The Road’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes Preacher’s second season premiere has great action and great laughs, while introducing a frightening new antagonist. The episode opened with a great sing along as our main characters get chased by police cruisers.  The singing was accompanied by a grainy film filter and the characters complaining about how shit the ...

iZombie: ‘Looking for Mr. Goodbrain Part 1’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes This week’s iZombie episode continues to put together the pieces of a very large conspiracy, while also offering thrills, but is bogged down by an underdeveloped romantic sub-plot. Following the reveal of zombies in Seattle at the end of last week's episode, it was followed by a very skeptical response. ...

American Gods: ‘Come to Jesus’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes American Gods' season finale aired Sunday, and brought with it some huge revelations, as well as the beat of war drums. The episode opened with Wednesday and Shadow meeting with Mr. Nancy so as to procure two suits.  I’ve missed Mr. Nancy ever since that fantastic opening in the series ...

iZombie: ‘Conspiracy Weary’ Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes So much happened this week on iZombie, as the series move towards it’s season finale in the next few weeks. So, holy shit.  For the last ten episodes, the season has been building up various plot threads that are now coming together in pretty interesting ways.  The biggest reveal, well ...

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. For weeks the anti-zombie movement has been steadily growing and searching for proof of zombies.  Now it seems they've taken action and gotten definitive proof ...

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 ...

Samurai Jack Season 5 Review

Written By: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes Samurai Jack was one of those cartoons I watched as a kid and though it was awesome at the time, I came to appreciate it even more as I got older.  So, when Cartoon Network announced a new season that would finally conclude Jack’s journey, I was excited and curious ...
