Rotten Tomatoes is certainly not the be-all and end-all when it comes to film and television criticism but when a series that has never dipped below 90% is suddenly ‘rotten,’ that’s saying something. Game of Thrones earned that 58% with a truly subpar outing last week. Was “The Gift” a return to form?
A season of small-scale storytelling on Supernatural could only end in an abandoned Mexican restaurant in Nebraska. Season 10 dropped the typical end-of-the-world season-long arc in favor of a dilemma that pushed Sam and Dean’s brotherly bond to its breaking point.
Wow to the wow, The Flash delivered a season finale that just doesn’t happen that often on TV. One that packed an emotional punch, an intelligent dilemma, and two of the biggest WTF moments of the entire season.
How have six episodes already passed? It feels like Game of Thrones‘s fifth season premiere was yesterday. Before “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken,” viewers were already treated to one wedding but it didn’t live up to GOT’s usual nuptial nastiness.
After last week’s big cliffhanger, Arrow wrapped up its mediocre third season with a solid finale. “My Name Is Oliver Queen” was full of exciting showdowns and some fun references to the rest of the DCU. Not to mention a happy ending. The sun even made an appearance.
“The Prisoner” was the best episode of this show I’ve seen since “Road Trip” in Season 9. The most amazing part of this hour was that it delivered the goods without a typical Supernatural plot. The characters, their interactions, and their growth were all it took to give us a dynamite hour of television.
That was a terrific episode of Game of Thrones. The fantasy series’ streamlined storytelling has proved incredibly effective so far this season and “Kill the Boy” contained even fewer threads than last week’s exciting installment. Here's what happened.
Oh my god, something huge happened! For sure. One hundred percent. No way that this is some trick. Nope, the entire supporting cast of Arrow went through some huge changes this week, and it wasn’t even the season finale!
“Dark Dynasty” reminded us of the love that Sam, Castiel, and Charlie have for Dean. They will go to any length to save their friend from the Mark of Cain, even if their plan for saving him involves going behind his back, working with Rowena, and messing with the Book of the Damned.
After ambling along for most of its 22-episode run, Fox’s Gotham gave us a jam-packed finale tonight that capably should set up the storyline for Season 2. But before we get into where our characters are heading, let's talk about Fish Mooney.
After three episodes that, while still entertaining, seemed mostly concerned with putting the pieces in place for the new season, this week’s Game of Thrones started moving them around the chessboard to bloody thrilling results. Hands down the best episode of the fifth season so far.
Spoilers abound in this article if you haven’t caught the fourth episode of Game of Thrones Season 5, “The Sons of the Harpy.” If you haven’t watched, yet, skedaddle out of her. Still here? Wow, shit is really going down.
Now that “Al Sah-him’ is over, there are only two Arrows left in the quiver. The superhero series’ third season has been a struggle but this week was excellent, easily the best installment of so far this year. And there were also a few intriguing easter eggs...
“Angel Heart” was surprisingly touching and provided a fitting end to the Novak family arc. The chess pieces are being shuffled into position for an exciting finish to Season 10.
It’s interesting that this week’s Game of Thrones used a name for the title since “High Sparrow” was all about characters questioning their identity. The contemplative third installment of HBO’s fantasy also had a wedding without a single casualty. Some would consider that a dull affair.
