FBI - Crossfire television review

Snipers make for good television. Killing from a distance, with an ability to flee the scene before they can be apprehended, they present a different kind of challenge for local and federal law enforcement (or their TV equivalent). In the latest episode of FBI, Agents Maggie Bell (Missy Peregrym) and OA (Zeeko Zaki) track a sniper who will kill multiple targets at two different locations. While the victims appear unconnected, the settings are not which eventually leads the FBI to identifying the shooter (Michael C. Williams) and a young man (Tim Johnson Jr.) working with him. Over the course of the episode we see Maggie’s boss (Sela Ward) support and push Bell to make the tough calls (while both testing and grooming the younger agent for a larger role withing the FBI in the years to come).

Supergirl #23

in Comics

Supergirl #23 comic reviewSearching for answers about Rogol Zaar and the destruction of Krypton has led Kara to the archives of the Green Lantern Corps. Breaking in she learns the existence of a conspiracy to cover up the truth behind Krypton’s destruction by an inner circle. Armed with limited knowledge, and even more questions, Supergirl must fight her way through the Green Lantern Corps if her quest is to continue.

While the comic offers more questions than answers, and forces Kara down a path that a reasonable explanation might very well circumvent, it does layout the mystery before her and offer another breadcrumb in her search. Along the way Supergirl #23 delivers some amusing moments including Kara making Kyle Rayner look foolish (as easy as that may be to do), Krypto making a new frenemy among the members of the Corps, and Kara getting help from an unexpected source.

The Rookie - Pilot television review

As the show opens, contractor and recent divorcee John Nolan (Nathan Fillion) is lost. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he helps stall a bank robbery long enough for the police to arrive. Fast-forward nine months later and Nolan is on the other side of the country as Los Angeles’ oldest rookie cop. Although the harsher tone of the show limits the amount of jokes Fillion can come off with (this certainly isn’t Castle 2.0) its a good role for actor who is easy to root for despite the obstacles put in his way, first for being a rookie, and secondly for being an old rookie. Nolan isn’t the only new rookie in the department, the “Pilot” also introduces us to Nolan’s secret girlfriend Officer Lucy Chen (Dark Matter‘s Melissa O’Neil) and the smart, but not very street savvy, Officer Jackson West (Titus Makin Jr.).
