A Series of Unfortunate Events - The Wide Window TV review

The turbulent lives of the Baudelaire children get no easier when Violet (Malina Weissman), Klaus (Louis Hynes), and baby Sunny meet their new guardian Aunt Josephine (Alfre Woodard) who proves to be far-less fearless than her reputation. As with the previous episode, the conflict stems from the arrival of Count Olaf (Neil Patrick Harris) in another ridiculous disguise that somehow only the Baudelaires are able to see through. This time the villain arrives as a ship captain attempting to woo their guardian to get control of the children and their fortune.

Teen Titans #4 comic reviewUnable to properly prepare or hide his new team from the Demon’s Fist, Damian decides to turn himself over to Ra’s al Ghul to fight for the lives of his new friends. This means trial by combat with cousin Mara. Although he wins the fight, Damian’s unwillingness to kill his cousin costs him dearly as he is jailed by the League awaiting his former family to make an example of him.

There are a couple of smart choices here worth noting. There is no internal conflict for Damian in his choice to spare Mara’s life. Despite Raven‘s comments about his internal struggle, it seems this version of Robin is far more in Batman‘s side than his New 52 counterpart. Given the trouble the New 52 led the character down by hyping the character’s bloodthirsty nature, even after he had grown out of it prior to the relaunch, this makes a pleasant change. Once again, some of the damage of the New 52 is mitigated.

Emerald City - Everybody Lies TV review

The final scene of “Everybody Lies” is the most interesting of the entire episode as Dorothy‘s (Adria Arjona) journey to find the Wizard (Vincent D’Onofrio) comes to an end. Before we get there, however, there’s trouble for Dorothy and her new friends. Delivered into the clutches of West (Ana Ularu), Dorothy is caged and tortured by the witch who, despite her ability to read memories, is completely incapable of seeing the truth of Dorothy’s journey and the events concerning the witch’s death. Eventually helped by Tip (Jordan Loughran), Dorothy manages to escape and walk right into the Wizard’s private chambers carrying a loaded gun without a single guard offering even the most token effort of resistance.
