DOCTOR WHO Season 10 Episode 4 “Knock Knock” Review

The easy chemistry between Capaldi and Mackie makes me wish she had been around longer in the series. When she introduces the Doctor as her Granddad in this episode, it is just too funny, especially in light of how strongly he objects to the designation. That the TARDIS is employed as a moving van is also a nice excuse for a chuckle.

CLASS Season 1 Episode 3 “Nightvisiting” Review

Class adds a new perspective to the fifty-year-old franchise and does so with the freshness of a twenty-first-century point of view. So far so good, and I look forward to seeing how far they can go with this.

AMERICAN GODS Season 1 Episode 1 “The Bone Orchard” Review

American Gods is shocking and disconcerting and so very intricate and compelling. It may even be one of those cases where it exceeds the source material in every way. This is a must see for anyone interested in the suspenseful and chilling whether you are familiar with the material or not.

DOCTOR WHO Season 10 Episode 3 “Thin Ice” Review

A world where the Doctor doesn’t show up to save the day is very scary indeed and these kids are just as uncertain as I would be. An original take on something that could have been stale and derivative.
Class Season 1 Episode 2

Class Season 1 Episode 2 “The Coach With the Dragon Tattoo” Review

Ms. Quill (Katherine Kelly) is fast becoming my favorite if (delightfully) deranged character. Her considering which chess piece would make the best offensive weapons is so endearing.
Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 2 "Smile" Review

Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 2 “Smile” Review

I like Bill. In the tradition of companions who admire, but don’t adore the Doctor, question what he says and retain a human perspective, Bill is just right. Everything...

Class Season 1 Episode 1 “For Tonight We Might Die” Review

This third spinoff from the New Who lands squarely between the squeaky clean juvenile sensibilities of The Sarah Jane Adventures and the mature audience tone of Torchwood. It is too early to tell how successful the middle ground will be.

Doctor Who Season 10 Episode 1 “The Pilot” Review

The final season with Peter Capaldi as the Doctor begins with him in semi-retirement as a university professor who has been around so long that if his physics lectures turn into poetry discussions, nobody complains. “Same thing,” he explains.

Archer Season 8 Episode 1 Review: No Good Deed

Overall, the animation, the writing, and the thought process behind certain devices remain truly top-notch, and as expected from Archer, the verbal interplay between characters was beyond sharp and witty.

Legion Season 1 Review

Looking for an easy binge-watch before the next big thing in genre TV? Only eight episodes long, this series raises more questions than it answers, but it is entertaining...
