‘Titans’ series premiere recap: Meet the new gritty and grown-up team

Titans series premiere recap: Season 1, Episode 1, “Titans,” Aired Oct. 12, 2018  Holy smokes. Never judge a show by its trailer. Never. Yes, it was gritty. It was bloody. It was dark, both in content and literal ‘so-dark-you-have-to-max-your-screen-brightness-and-wonder-if-you’re-watching-Teen-Titans-or-Teen-Wolf’ dark. But it made you love every second of it. It was great. The Teen Titans were my favourite […]

Well, well, well, we’ve reached Season 5! That’s right, The Flash has been on for nearly half a decade now. Time sure goes by in a flash, huh?

‘The Crossing’: Post-season review

Earlier this month, ABC’s new drama The Crossing rounded up its first and only season. The network cancelled the show despite its relatively good ratings. Which is a shame, because things were just heating up too. What went wrong? Too much going on. Had The Crossing been too ambitious? They did have a lot going on […]

‘The Crossing’ recap: “Hope Smiles from the Threshold”

The Crossing episode 9, “Hope Smiles from the Threshold”, aired June 4th, 2018. This show is more complicated than a rollercoaster ride.

‘The Crossing’ recap: “The Long Morrow”

The Crossing episode 8, “The Long Morrow”, aired 28 May 2018. Spoiler: The Crossing is not renewed for season 2. Another spoiler: Emma Ren is officially dead. Well that explains it.

‘The Flash’ season 4 FINALE!: “We are the Flash” recap

The Flash season 4 episode 23, “We are the Flash” aired May 22, 2018. Another season gone! It seems way too fast. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

‘The Flash’ recap: 4×22 “Think Fast”

The Flash episode “Think Fast” aired 15 May 2018. Wait, we’re at the second-last episode of the season? Looking back, a lot of The Flash has felt like filler since the mid-season break. It’s kinda underwhelming. Anyway, it seems like Clifford has gotten over Marlize’s departure. He impersonates John Diggle to get into the A.R.G.U.S. facility […]

‘The Crossing’ recap: “Some Dreamers of the Golden Dream”

The Crossing episode 7, “Some Dreamers of the Golden Dream”, aired 14 May 2018. Another episode and still no news of Emma Ren.

‘The Flash’ recap: 4×21 “Harry and the Harrisons”

The Flash season 4 episode 21 “Harry and the Harrisons” aired May 8, 2018. Ah yes, it’s that episode.

‘The Crossing’ recap: “LKA”

The Crossing episode 6, “LKA”, aired 7 May, 2018. Hello everyone. It’s another episode of The Crossing and we still don’t know how is Emma Ren. A quick google of the title shows that it could be an acronym for “last known alive”. Is there hope for our Agent, then? If last week was a flashback […]

‘The Flash’ recap: 4×20 “Therefore she is”

The Flash episode “Therefore She Is” aired on May 1, 2018. I’ll say it. I like Marlize DeVoe. Tonight’s episode was just the cherry on top. Like it’s earlier counterpart “Therefore I Am”, “Therefore She Is” had many flashbacks to the DeVoes early life together. These offered insight to her complicated relationship with her husband. […]

‘The Crossing’ recap: “Ten Years Gone”
