Season 6 | Episode 2
“Trust Me Knot”

Eve is becoming more like her former self Juliette every moment, which I hope ends badly for her. From the beginning, she has been, and still is by far, my least favorite character. Renard continues to have visions of blood on his hands while planning for more mayhem. The war between he and Nick, long in abeyance due to the need for concealment, is now unrestrained. The magical stick is proving to be even more magical, and becoming more attached and precious to Nick the more he holds on to it. Diana is more powerful and disturbing than ever, even when her eyes don’t glow. She is so damn creepy, uhhhh, makes me shudder, and I love it.

In this episode, anything is possible as Captain Renard sends Portland’s version of a SWAT team after Nick, but Hank and Wu arrest him for the death of his mistress/publicist before he can give the order to storm Bud’s shop. To be fair, Renard could not have killed what’s-her-name because at the time he was saving Nick’s life by running a sword through Bonaparte, and beside that, we already know Diana was behind it all courtesy of long range spell casting and her flawed understanding of how to keep mommy happy.

Later, Nick tries to cut a deal with the Captain, but gets double crossed and Monroe and Rosalee are tasked with babysitting the horrifying, and maybe insane Diana. At least the kid seems to like them and wants to help decode the cloth that the magical stick came in.

Everything we need to know for the rest of the season/series has been laid out. Sasha Roiz, as Renard, finally gets to be the big bad we always wanted him to be and nobody is being especially careful about putting all of Portland’s wesen secrets out in the open. Regardless of how this ends, it looks like the show is firing on all cylinders. My only complaint is that Trubel has again gone off on yet another unexplained mission for HW. I hope she comes back soon, with superior firepower and reinforcements.

Score: A solid 7 out of 10 since we are still in the set up stage.

Alice Cooper: Love It To Death 50th Anniversary Track by Track Review

The truly shocking for the time Alice Cooper as rock star savior to the (youthful) masses manifested a Mr. Hyde persona and built a theatrical leaning musical genre upon it. The dark humor drawn from the old black and white “B” movies that haunted the drive in theaters in the Fifties collides with the deliberate depravity of loud music. Kids these days! Turn that damn thing down!

Hulu’s ‘Boss Level’: ’80s Nostalgia, Good and Bad

Boss Level isn't for everybody. If you want the video game action, '80s throwbacks, and intriguing mystery, brace yourself for the ridiculous violence, offensiveness, and manly men that unfortunately also abound.

BRZRKR #1 Review

BRZRKR is a violent tale of a god-like super-soldier who craves to be more human, and maybe a release from his endless struggle. There is more than brutality to the story of this immortal. And yes, whoa, this is excellent.
