The Strain S01 E06: Occultation

the_strain_FX_

We learned two things in episode 5 of “The Strain”: making house calls can be dangerous; a Strigoi and a Nazi are both evil creatures, and New York City is in deep guano. Yes, my little blood banks, the Master with Palmer’s help has started a plague that cannot be stopped. What does this have to do with the upcoming eclipse? Plenty! So grab your protective bag of garlic and follow me. Read the rest of this entry

After this, there’s only one episode left, and it’s all coming to a bloody end. Will Sam leave Bon Temps? Will Hoyt and Jason live happily ever after with dozens of unspoken secrets between them? Can Eric ever keep a promise? Will Bill and Sookie be together or apart as “True Blood” begins to close the coffin for the last time? And will someone die tonight? Maybe we’ll find out, maybe not just yet. Check out my review of “Love Is to Die” after the jump.

Defiance S02 E09: Painted From Memory

defiance-209-short

Between the Votanis Collective trying to bomb New York, Amanda’s finding her sister Kenya and that afternoon delight scene between Stahma and Datak, last week’s episode of “Defiance” was very interesting. Everyone is happy except Tommy. Get over it, kid! Will Nolan and Tommy fight over Berlin? Are you curious about Irisa and Sukar’s plans for their posse of alien zombies? Me too, but to tell the truth, I’m more interested in Stahma’s reaction when she learns that Kenya is alive. Let’s pretend to be shrill larvae on the wall and listen in, shall we.

The-Strain-1x05-1

If you’re like me, you use the internet to learn, connect via social media or maybe do some research, but the internet is also used as a tool to reveal the evil activities of corrupt men. By spreading the word, we are able to keep evil in check, right? Eldritch Palmer is well aware of the power of an informed public, and on last week’s episode of “The Strain,” he had his henchwoman, Dutch Velders eliminate the threat. Where does this leave Ephraim and Setrakian? In deep guano if you ask me. I wonder if our lovable Rat Terminator, Vasiliy, has figured out what’s spooked New York’s vermin. Let’s find out after the jump… Read the rest of this entry
