Hooten & the Lady - The Caribbean TV review

Hooten & the Lady closes its First Season with one last adventure for the mismatched pair before, or to be more accurate on, Alex’s (Ophelia Lovibond) wedding day. Running from the drama of a wedding that’s gotten out of control, Alex follows Hooten (Michael Landes) to the Caribbean in search of lost pirate treasure of Captain Henry Morgan. When her fiance Edward (Jonathan Bailey) follows, Alex struggles to juggle the future she wants with the man she loves versus the adventure she craves with the other man in her life.

Rick and Morty - The Ricklantis Mixup TV review

“The Ricklantis Mixup” offers a bait-and-switch. As our Rick (Justin Roiland) and Morty (Roiland) head-out for an amazing adventure in Atlantis, the show shifts focus to show us the goings on in the Citadel of Ricks. Given the tease of the episode and its title, the content of “The Ricklantis Mixup is a bit unexpected but probably long overdue. There are several different stories at play in the Citadel, but the driving force behind the episode is a Morty running for president and winning the election on a platform of change. Brutal, murderous change.

The Orville - Old Wounds television review

Set in the 25th Century, The Orville is more Star Trek knock-off than parody. The show’s pilot episode introduces us to troubled officer Ed Mercer (Seth MacFarlane) who is granted command of a starship not out of any qualifications but simply because the Planetary Union ran out of suitable candidates. Initially psyched for the assignment, Mercer is shocked to discover his cheating ex-wife Kelly Grayson (Adrianne Palicki) has been assigned as his first officer. The ship’s first assignment, to deliver supplies to a medical station, goes awry when the lead scientist (Brian George) reveals the existence about a time displacement device which could be used as a terrible weapon an alien race known as the Krill show up to steal.

Danger Man - Josetta television review

Our Throwback Thursday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. The murder of a prominent politician, rumored to have been killed by American agents, sends John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) to São Paulo where the only witness to the crime is the victim’s blind sister Josetta (Julia Arnall). After identifying the killer by his voice, the local authorities need more to move on the Army lietantnat (Kenneth Haigh) who, with the help of a leggy blonde (Claire Gordon), quickly frames the American agent for attempted murder to throw suspicion off himself.

Killjoys - Wargasm TV review

Killjoys closes out its Third Season with the war between the Hullen and the Killjoys finally heating up. “Wargasm” also gives us the confrontation between Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) and Aneela (John-Kamen), although its outcome (and that of the war) is unexpected. Given how the episode ends, it looks like its going to be awhile before our three heroes return to their roles as space bounty hunters.
