Killjoys - A Skinner, Darkly television review

“A Skinner, Darkly” offers two separate stories before bringing Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) home. Before he can get there, however, Johnny will learn the (disappointing) truth about both his missing friend and Clara (Stephanie Leonidas) and the young woman (Tommie-Amber Pirie) wearing her weaponized arm when he uncovers the facts about a re-skinning operation which is using the Hullen ooze to allow others to take on the appearance of the doctor’s (Viktoria Modesta) victims. The audience isn’t the only one disappointed in the outcome, as Johnny (thankfully) heads home calling an end to his solo travels.

Castlevania - Witchbottle television review

Based on the third video game in the series, Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, Netflix’s new four-part Castlevania animated series introduces us to Dracula (Graham McTavish) and the events which would wake the retiring vampire out of his seclusion to declare war on humanity. Set prior to the events of the game, the first episode introduces us to both Dracula and the human woman (Emily Swallow), a scientist mistaken for a witch in the Fifteenth Century, whose love would bring Dracula out into the world and whose death at the hands of an angry church-fearing mob would lead to the vampire’s thirst for vengeance.

Dark Matter - One More Card to Play TV review

“One More Card to Play” picks up the thread of the Rasa’s missing doppelgangers from the parallel universe when the alternate versions of Portia (Melissa O’Neil) and Boone (Anthony Lemke) steal a Zairon transport ship, betray one the crew’s few remaining allies, and attempt to steal the Rasa. While the plan ulimately fails due to extra contingency plans by Five (Jodelle Ferland) and the Android (Zoie Palmer), the entire series of events ends in a stalemate with the other crew still at large (and now in possession of their own ship).

Batman: The Animated Series - If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich? television review

For Throwback Thursday we look back at one of my favorite episodes of Batman: The Animated Series. While the Joker was appeared in more than two-dozen episodes (and a couple of movies), another of Batman’s most notable adversaries was give far-less screentime. “If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Rich?” offers us the origins of the Riddler (John Glover). After software designer Edward Nygma is screwed out of his proceeds from the best-selling video game he created, the man disappears only to pop-up later as a super-villain taking advantage of the game’s popularity to attack Daniel Mockridge (Gary Frank) using both riddles and the theme park created from the game as a weapon against his former boss.
