Scooby-Doo! - Go Away Ghost Ship television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to Scooby Doo, Where Are You! for another mystery involving some meddling kids and their talking dog. Mystery, Inc. decides to investigate the sudden appearance of the Ghost of Redbeard the Pirate (John Stephenson) whose pirate ship has been raiding local freighters owned by C.L. Magnus (Stephenson). The episode goes all in on pirates with Redbeard, his old school pirate ship and henchmen, and his secret hideout inside the caves of Skull Island. There’s even Redbeard’s ghost sword which chases the gang (and whose abilities aren’t completely explained away by “being on wires”).

Lucifer - BluBallz television review

“BluBallz” relies on one of the oldest television tropes of keeping Chloe (Lauren German) and Lucifer (Tom Ellis) from getting closer by the introduction of an ex (Justin Bruening) as a potential murder victim in their latest case and Lucifer completely misreading how to handle the situation. Taking questionable advice is the theme of the episode’s B-story in which Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) attempts to become more emotionally available by adopting Ella‘s (Aimee Garcia) personality. The weakest episode of the season so far is really only memorable for its final moments in which Lucifer and Chloe’s relationship gets physical and Michael steps back in for a little mischief by allowing Dan (Kevin Alejandro) to see an entirely new side of Lucifer Morningstar.
