After facing major big bads Thanos and Ultron earlier this season we finally get to the battle that’s been building since the seventh episode of “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble” – the Avengers vs. the Squadron Supreme. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on the grimly titled “Avengers’ Last Stand.”

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell S01 EP07: Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell

Mr. Norrell

We’ve finally arrived at the final episode of “Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell,” and it seems too soon. I’m not sure that fans of the show were ready to say goodbye to this world and all of the wonderful characters.

Last week, Jonathan captured the madness of a crazy cat lady, and had an unfortunate confrontation with The Gentleman.  Vinculus, who is the book of The Raven King also had an unfortunate meeting with the evil fairy. He keeps his appointment with a tree, though I’m not sure Vinculus knew he’d be hanging from it.

Just in case you haven’t seen the epic finale, spoilers, after the jump.

True Detective S02 E06: Church in Ruins

TDsearch

True Detective” continues its messy second season with an ‘everything AND the kitchen sink’ episode six.  Clues start to fall into place, Ray and Frank take turns trying to channel Mike Brady, and the crew participates in the strangest, most far-fetched party infiltration since Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks had to save the virgin Connie Swail from the clutches of P.A.G.A.N.  An episode that was three parts tension tempered by two parts silliness, nonetheless, it got the job done and set us up for the final quarter of the season.  Find out more after the break.

Defiance S03 E08: My Name is Datak Tarr and I Have Come to Kill You

Holy Shaming Rack! On last week’s episode of “Defiance,” our favorite aliens were in deep Shtako. Datak is on the rack, Stahma might wish she were, Irisa flunked Amazon Goddess 101 and, Berlin has flown the coop with the king of bad shark movies. General Tak’s men have dug under the stasis net, but can Lieutenant Bebe masquerade as a human? Choose your friends wisely. Read the rest of this entry

Avengers Assemble S02 E22: Midgard Crisis

av1

There’s been lots of talk about Wonder Woman lately with the recent release of the new Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, including the first footage of Gal Gadot as the Amazon Princess (and Diana Prince!!), so for the “Avengers Assemble” team to face off against the Squadron Supreme’s own pseudo-Wonder Woman – Zarda – is rather timely. What does the polarizing Power Princess have in store for Thor? Meet me after the jump, for my review of this week’s episode, “Midgard Crisis,” to find out.

Twin Peaks S02 E12: The Black Widow

TP212

On the last episode of “Twin Peaks,” we talked Black Lodge and my disappointment with the script. This week, I’m hoping to see some more action. The show seemed to shift onto a wrong track, like a runaway train, after Leland’s death. I’m hoping this shift is just temporary. Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry

Actor Trading Cards: Peter Dinklage

Peter Dinklage
PETER DINKLAGE

Born: June 11, 1969 in Morristown, New Jersey
Height: 4’5

Personal Quote:

“I’m on Game of Thrones, and every time we have someone new coming on our show, we welcome them with open arms and get revitalized by this new presence. Then we kill them off very quickly.”

Did You Know?

Dinklage is a vegetarian. Anytime you see him eating a meat product on screen, it is actually a tofu product.

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell S01 EP06: The Black Tower

Mr. Norrell

The BBC has certainly been successful in adding magic to television this summer.

Last week Arabella joins the Lost-Hope ball. Jonathan grieves his lost wife, and begins a journey into madness.

Those with a fear of mice, birds, or crazy cat ladies, should probably avoid this week’s episode of “Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell.”

True Detective S02 E05: Other Lives

highway

“It’s never too late to start all over again,” Ani Bezzerides assures a reluctant Ray Velcoro; and apparently our “True Detective” showrunners took that advice to heart, as episode five explodes in a tangled highway of new and resurfaced plotlines that bring us back to the bad old days of episode one.  Find out what I really think after the break!
