Arrow - Tribute television review

Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) faces attacks on two sides in “Tribute.” First, the release of a photograph of him as Green Arrow creates a media frenzy around the Mayor of Star City, creates trouble for his son at school, and launches a FBI investigation into his life. And second, the reappearance of Anatoly Knyazev (David Nykl) is problematic with the Bratva soldier and his men kidnap visiting dignitaries and hold them for ransom. The episode B-story also finally delves into just what’s wrong with Diggle (David Ramsey) since his return from Lian Yu.

The Good Place - The Trolley Problem television review

Possibly better than any other show currently on television, The Good Place knows how to write itself out of potential issues and provide twists to what is a very simple premise with (presumably) limited story options. The end of the First Season dropped the bomb shell of where Eleanor (Kristen Bell) and her friends are truly living while Season Two has kept viewers on their toes with the demons trying (and failing) to hoodwink the damned foursome again. Michael‘s (Ted Danson) decision to team-up with the group was another such twist, the fallout of which provides some of the best moments of the season so far.

Supergirl #14

Supergirl #14 comic reviewI’m not sure why every version of Supergirl seems to go through a storyline where her powers go on the fritz at some point, but that’s the case in Supergirl #14 where Kara travels to China to seek help from Super-Man and I-Ching.

While several pages are centered around Supergirl centering herself and finding balance, a large chuck of the comic also deals with a pissed-off Rocket Red shot down in China who turns on the locals and the two heroes.

While the encounter with Rocket Red provides the bulk of the comic’s action scenes, Kara’s training with I-Ching centers more on the character’s spiritual growth. It’s an interesting mix that turns out to work well.

SEAL Team - Ghosts of Christmas Future TV review

Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz) and his team head to Estonia to grab a Serbian war criminal turned weapon supplier who Mandy’s (Jessica Paré) mentor (Brian Howe) has been after most of his career. The already complicated snatch-and-grab is made even harder when one of the target’s bodyguards turns out to know Jason, his team, and their methods. Things don’t get any easier for Mandy when she discovers her old friend is so invested in the operation he has played fast and loose with the facts to get her team to put themselves in a dangerous position. The CIA intrigue is a nice twist while once again the action in the field, the planning, and necessary improvisation, all play to the show’s strengths.
