Once Upon a Time - Best Laid Plans

In an episode that reveals the truth about Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and David‘s (Josh Dallas) big secret and the fate of Maleficent‘s (Kristin Bauer van Straten) child, “Best Laid Plans” also introduces us to the Author (or at least the one trapped in the book – which is an interesting choice to reveal many have played that role over history) and gives the audience an understanding of how and why he came to be trapped inside the story book he was chronicling. Tempted to destroy the page to avoid telling Emma (Jennifer Morrison) the truth, the Charmings eventually decide to come clean about their secrets in a move that all of Storybrooke may come to regret.

Samurai Jack #17

Samurai Jack #17As I’m a fan of both Samurai Jack and countless heist films Samurai Jack #17 delivers its share of fun right in my wheelhouse. Teaming up with “the Thief” (we have still yet to learn his real name), Jack and his new partner spend most of the issue breaking into the Master of Time’s highly-guarded compound. This includes guards, alarms, death traps, laser grids, and the need for a good deal of stealth from both characters (and when that fails swift legs and forceful fisticuffs).

As last month’s issue foreshadowed when Jack first attempted to seek an audience, the Master of Time isn’t exactly all he’s cracked-up to be leaving me to wonder where next month’s issue might take the arc. Despite the ending, which is more problematic for next issue than this one, this month provides plenty of fun team-up actions between Jack and the Thief as the pair struggle to work together to survive the countless obstacles put in their way in order to find the one man who the samurai believes may be able to transport him back home and finally undo the future that is Aku. Worth a look.

Backstrom - Give 'Til It Hurts

While avoiding his latest mandatory appointment with Dr. Deb (Rizwan Manji), Backstrom (Rainn Wilson) and his unit investigate a rather pedestrian hit-and-run that leaves one wealthy woman dead. Believing the motive for the socialite’s murder is tied to one of the various charities she was involved in, Backstrom and his team go undercover (sort of) and a swanky charity benefit in hopes of discovering the real motive for the murder.
