Corporate - Corporate Retreat television review

The Hampton DeVille corporate retreat gets off to the kind of start fans will be expecting as the senior executives decide to simulate a plane crash on the flight in order to get the coworkers to bond a little easier over the course of the weekend. How would you follow that up? Well, for starters there’s the motivational speakers (Jon Daly and Natasha Lyonne) enlightening the workers on how best o be A.H.O.L.E.S. (Alphas wHo Only Like Excellence). And of course, things end in waterboarding minimally disguised as corporate baptism.

The Librarians and the Echoes of Memory TV review

Picking up immediately following last week’s episode, the season finale opens with Eve (Rebecca Romijn) stumbling through a dreary world run by “The Company” in which the Library has never existed struggling to keep the idea of it, and Flynn (Noah Wyle), alive in her mind long enough to find the Librarians (all of whom all only remember Eve and the Library as nothing more than a hazy dream). After finding her three friends, and sparking a glimmer of memory in each, Eve is captured and locked away in a mental institution with Flynn as her memory of the Library and the real world slips away. Thankfully, she’s done just enough prodding to reawaken the idea of better world for the Librarians.

Black Lightning - Black Jesus television review

When a dangerous new drug hits the streets and his school, Black Lightning (Cress Williams) hits the streets, including looking up an old friend (Jason Louder) who it turns out is the city’s major dealer. On the home front the family drama continues with Lynn (Christine Adams) hating her husband’s return to the spandex lifestyle, Jennifer (China Anne McClain) reacting to Khalil’s (Jordan Calloway) shooting by ignoring other responsibilities and Anissa (Nafessa Williams), inspired by the example of Black Lightning and emboldened by her new powers, decides to take justice into her own hands. The later holds the most promise, although the young woman’s ability to process putting a half-dozen people in intensive care (if not killing them) certainly raises reasons for concern.

The Flash - True Colors #tvreview

The return of an old acquaintance who questions Ralph‘s (Devon Graye) ability to go straight has the unintended consequence of helping the Elongated Man discover a new power to alter his rubbery physique to temporarily duplicate the appearance of others. Meanwhile Barry (Grant Gustin) is locked in Warden Wolfe‘s (Richard Brooks) secret meta-human prison and offered up with its other inmates to Amunet Black (Katee Sackhoff) in order to be sold to the highest bidder. Queued into the scheme thanks to Cecile‘s (Danielle Nicolet) temporary psychic powers, and with the help of Ralph’s new powers, Team Flash works on a plan to save its leader (who is working on his own escape with the help of his fellow inmates).

Supergirl - Both Sides Now television review

After catching Purity (Krys Marshall), and getting a glimpse at (but not really understanding) her duality, Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Alex (Chyler Leigh) disagree on how best to interrogate the world killer. After she escapes from the DEO, leaving chaos in her wake, the pair are forced to put their debate on hold while the team heads out for an underground climax in a National City subway station. Meanwhile, Sam‘s (Odette Annable) day off with her daughter leads to yet another unexplained disappearance and plenty of questions for Lena (Katie McGrath) who may finally be the first to suspect what’s really going on with her #1 employee.
