Shadowhunters - Beside Still Water television review

Shadowhunters closes its Third Season by wrapping up the Valentine (Alan Van Sprang) storyline, laying the foundation for multiple conflicts next season, reigniting old passions, and (temporarily) killing a major character. Armed with the Mortal Cup and the Mortal Sword, Valentine travels to Lake Lynn to complete his master plan. The villain is successful in raising the angel Raziel, but he won’t live long enough to see his dream of a world without Downworlders come to fruition when he’s cut down by his daughter (rather easily concerning how easily he was throwing her around like a rag doll only minutes before) who uses the one wish granted by the angel to restore Jace (Dominic Sherwood) to life.

Preacher - Puzzle Piece TV review

Initially seeing Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) as nothing more than other false idol for Grail Industries to kill and bury, Klaus Starr (Pip Torrens) sends a team to do just that. While the preacher’s survival infuriates Starr, and causes him to call for a drone strike on Jesse and his friends, something found in the surveillance footage of the apartment will give the man an entirely different perspective on the matter and give him the puzzle piece he has long been searching for.

Voltron: Legendary Defender - Red Paladin TV review

Musical chairs is the theme of the second episode of Voltron‘s Third Season. With the Black Lion‘s acceptance of Keith (Steven Yeun) as its new paladin a new spot opens up in the team. For his acceptance of Keith’s new role, Lance (Jeremy Shada) is accepted as the paladin of the Red Lion leaving the Blue Lion available for Princess Allura (Kimberly Brooks). With a line-up that more closely resembles that of the original Voltron cartoon, Voltron now again has five paladins to protect the universe. And it seems the universe does need protecting.

Rick and Morty - Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender TV review

From the moment Morty (Justin Roiland) shows Rick (Roiland) his stamp card telling his grandfather the tenth adventure will be with the Vindicators, Rick is a sullen prick (so… pretty much the norm). First, how great is it that Morty has a stamp card? And that Rick’s “reward” for putting his grandson through all types of horror is to allow him to pick a single adventure for every ten Morty gets dragged on? Rick isn’t pleased to see the Vindicators again, insensitively mocking the heroes as the prepare to stop Worldender from… well, ending worlds I guess. Worldender isn’t he villain of he episode, however, it’s Rick.
