Psych: The Movie television review

Set three years after the events of the Psych season finale, Psych: The Movie reunites the cast in San Fransisco where Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) will insert themselves into the attempted murder of Juliet‘s (Maggie Lawson) partner leading to a confrontation with an old enemy. Along with all the familiar faces (including a cameo of Timothy Omundson, who suffered a stroke shortly before the shooting of the TV-movie), we get the usual catchphrases (even if some of the them feel a bit forced) and goofiness from the fake psychic detective and his pharmaceutical salesman partner fans of the show remember fondly.

The Flash - Don't Run TV review

Christmas comes to Central City, but no one is in a celebratory mood as Barry (Grant Gustin) is abducted by the Thinker and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) is kidnapped by Amunet Black (Katee Sackhoff). With limited resources at their disposal, Iris (Candice Patton) is forced to choose which one becomes the priority for the team to recover. While the episode is apparently the last we will see of Clifford DeVoe (Neil Sandilands), it’s far from the last we’ll see of the Thinker whose need for new metahumans, one in particular, is finally explained.

Justice League Action - Skyjacked television review

“Skyjacked” is a fun Justice League Action short featuring Harley Quinn (Tara Strong) and Poison Ivy (Natasha Leggero) attempting to steal a Javelin from the Justice League which is complicated by the arrival of Batman (Kevin Conroy). Ever since Batman: The Animated Series the team-up of Harley and Ivy has provided some enjoyable moments on both TV and in comics, and “Skyjacked” continues that trend.

Supergirl - Reign television review

Supergirl pulls out all the stops for its mid-season finale with a memorable first meeting between Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Reign (Odette Annable) that leaves the Girl of Steel broken, battered, bruised, and defeated. Prior to the “Crisis on Earth-X” crossover we finally got some information about just who and what Reign really is. Despite Sam being taken over by the Kryptonian programming it appears she’s more of Jekyll/Hyde character keeping her humanity and only aware of her other self’s actions in nightmares. Beginning by burning her symbol all over National City and leaving a trail of dead drug gangbangers, eventually this Kryptonian “devil” steps toe-to-to with Supergirl (and more than holds her own).

Lucifer - The Sinnerman television review

“The Sinnerman” plays on four themes of Lucifer‘s Third Season. The first, which gives the episode its name, involves the Sinnerman (Kevin Carroll) upping his game by murdering those whom Lucifer (Tom Ellis) has given favors to, and temporary kidnapping Lucifer (for a purpose that seems to support an alternate identity for out season’s big bad), eventually leading to the criminal’s capture and face-to-face with the Devil himself. Is this really the Sinnerman, or has the real villain yet to show his face? Tied into this storyline is the growing sexual tension between Decker (Lauren German) and Pierce (Tom Welling), which even Lucifer begins to pick up on as the episode comes to a close.
