‘Gotham’ recap: 4×05 “The Blade’s Path”

Gotham recap: Season 4, Episode 05, “The Blade’s Path,” Aired Oct 19, 2017 This episode was classic Gotham. Jim and Harvey yelled at each other but are still undoubtedly best friends. Jim and Alfred argued and agreed behind Bruce’s back, and Bruce snuck out anyway. We all need an Alfred to give advice and keep us […]

‘Gotham’ recap: 4×04 “The Demon’s Head”

Gotham recap: Season 4, Episode 04, “The Demon’s Head,” Aired Oct 12, 2017 This episode was written by Ben McKenzie! That’s right – our very own Jim Gordon wrote tonight’s episode. And he delivered.

‘Gotham’ recap: 4×02 “The Fear Reaper”

Gotham recap: Season 4, Episode 02, “The Fear Reaper,” Aired Sept 28, 2017 This episode brings us one step closer to Batman and Poison Ivy, but the Scarecrow is keeping us busy until then. Jonathan Crane and Penguin both provoke Gordon, who is definitely rubbing off on Bruce because the both of them keep being numbskulls […]

Will season finale recap: Season 1, Episode 10, “Once, Bright Angel,” Aired September 4, 2017 The season finale was full of triumph, vengeance, excitement, and nerves.

‘Will’ recap: 1×09, “Play the Devil”

Will recap: Season 1, Episode 9, “Play the Devil,” Aired August 28, 2017 The title of the episode comes from Richard III, in a completely appropriate quote for the events of the show: “And thus I clothe my naked villainy.

Will recap: Season 1, Episode 8, “Your Houses,” Aired August 21, 2017 This episode contained public beheadings, questionable alliances, a chat with a fictional character, and an outbreak.

‘Will’ on TNT: The story so far

Let me start by saying that I am a Shakespeare nerd. I read his plays and sonnets for fun, and I genuinely enjoy them. So, of course, I was extremely excited to hear that a show about the Bard was out there. After quickly finding out that no one else I know was watching it, […]

The story continues for the Doctor’s daughter

I’ve noticed that a lot of Whovians are obsessed with “The Doctor’s Daughter.” Besides seeing the episode talked about all over the Internet, I attended a Peter Davison panel at a Doctor Who convention and a good number of questions were about the episode even though he wasn’t even a part of it. For all […]

The Thirteenth Doctor is…

It is officially the end of the Twelfth. The Thirteenth Doctor was announced in a short video after Wimbledon this morning. The new Doctor is female! Our new Doctor, number 13, is *drumroll please* Jodie Whittaker! After a brief look through her IMDb page, the only stand-out title on there (for me) was Broadchurch, where […]

Grading season 10 of ‘Doctor Who’

Greetings, Whovians! I hope you’re all surviving the hiatus so far. The wait from now until Christmas couldn’t be any longer, but season 10 gave us plenty to talk about for the next 163 days.
