Legacies Season 1 Episode 2 – TV Review

Legacies Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn Penelope sassy

Save us, mean girl wan Kenobi. You’re our only hope.

You wouldn’t expect an episode with an actual dragon to be this cold and limp, but here we are.

You did it, Legacies. You made the teen drama more compelling than an actual dragon.

And when the teen drama is this tepid, that’s quite an achievement.

Once Upon a Time Season 6 Episode 8 – TV Review

OUaT I'll Be Your Mirror Regina Queenie

Unless it’s just Queenie posing as her.

It’s just Queenie posing as her.

Still sizzling, though.

Once Upon a Time Season 5 Episodes 22 and 23 – TV Review

OUaT Only You Mr Hyde Sam Witwer

“Whaddya mean Penny Dreadful got there first?”

No apologies for this late review. I can barely muster any shits to give about Once Upon a Time, anymore.

Seventh Son – Film Review

Seventh Son Julianne Moore

Who knew that Once Upon a Time could lay claim to doing something better. Yeesh.

Game of Thrones Season 5 – Season Review

Game of Thrones Season 5 Daenerys Tyrion drink

A seven episode-long slog, to be precise.

I didn’t have any grand epiphanies about Game of Thrones this year.

Even more than season 4, season 5 felt like just another brick in the wall for what is supposed to be the world’s premier wow factor TV series.

Which means it’s becoming more like its network television lessers.

Which means I like it more now.

Once Upon a Time Season 4 Episodes 22 and 23 – TV Review

OUaT Operation Mongoose Henry tied up ogre

We were so close.

So Once Upon a Time is doing a double episode finale again.

I feel like Henry: strapped to a cart and struggling to be free.

Well, at least now I’ve got a couple of months off before Once Upon a Time returns for an exhausting season 5.

What Disney movies are out next year that it can sponge off of?

Once Upon a Time Season 4 Episode 21 – TV Review

OUaT Mother Barbara Hershey Cora

“And I chew everything. Especially scenery.”

It’s a Mills family reunion up in Once Upon a Time, lately.

If only Regina had any family you’d actually want around.
