Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy - Welcome Home

The search for the Cosmic Seed leads Peter Quill (Will Friedle) and Cosmo (James Arnold Taylor) to Earth with Korath (Dave Fennoy) on their heels. Separated from the rest of the Guardians, Star Lord and the telepathic dog will have to deal with Korath and his soldiers alone with their only help coming from Peter’s childhood bully. Cosmo is one of my favorite Guardians, so it’s nice to see him back in action here. Despite his army, Korath continues to be a rather uninteresting villain. Quill’s return home, however, does have its moments, especially concerning Cosmo’s attempts to blend in and later following the arrival of the rest of the Guardians.

Wander Over Yonder - The Robomechabotatron

Voltron fans should go crazy for “The Robomechabotatron.” Seeking anything to stop Dominator‘s (Noël Wells) destruction of the galaxy leads both Wander (Jack McBrayer) & Sylvia (April Winchell) and Lord Hater (Keith Ferguson) & Peepers (Tom Kenny) to seek out the legendary unstoppable Mecha known as Robomechabotatron. Realizing that all four of them will have to work together to properly operate the giant robot doesn’t stop Hater and Peepers from working against Sylvia. Eventually realizing that Dominator is the greater threat, everyone agrees to work together… except Wander (who has objections to fighting).

Eureka - Many Happy Returns

Set immediately following the events of the show’s “Pilot,” the second episode of the series opens with the funeral for Walter (Rob LaBelle) and Susan Perkins (Jennifer Clement) which seems common enough, at least until a very alive Susan walks into the police station later that same night. And, just to make things even more bizarre, an odd apparition begins appearing around town. Who says there’s no such thing as ghosts? By the end a reasonable explanation (or what passes for reasonable in Eureka) for both occurences will be given allowing a young boy (Zak Ludwig) to be reunited with his parents.

When their first attempt is unsuccessful, they set out to get the help they need. With the assistance of Pree (Thom Allison) the pair are able to get into the outlaw town of Eulogy in an attempt to find the one piece of tech which will allow Lucy to break through the impenetrable shields of the moon of Arkyn where D’Avin is being experimented on.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Witch / Teacher's Pet

Following the series’ two-part premiere, creator Joss Whedon and his writing staff made a conscious effort to show that vampires aren’t the only threats drawn to the Hellmouth which Buffy will be forced to battle. In both “Witch” and “Teacher’s Pet” new threats come from unexpected places. Along with giving us Buffy’s limited time as a Sunnydale cheerleader, “Witch” introduces Amy Madison (Elizabeth Anne Allen) who would go on to be famously know as “Amy the rat” for a large chunk of Buffy’s time on television. Here Amy is a victim of her mother (Robin Riker) who has stolen Amy’s body and attacked other cheerleaders in an attempt to make the squad and relive her glory days.
