Babylon 5 - Midnight on the Firing Line / Soul Hunter TV review

Our Throwback Thursday post takes us back to the first two episodes of Babylon 5. Developed around the same time as Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, the show had many similarities to the far more successful Star Trek spin-off (although it lacked both the budget and the rich history DS9 was able to build on). Even die-hard fan debate not if Babylon 5 lost its way, but when. For me the show begins to fall apart relatively early during its Fourth Season, but since that’s quite a ways from its beginning we’ll leave that discussion for another time.

The Flash - The Once and Future Flash TV review

There are two issues at play in “The Once and Future Flash,” although the show’s writers have not intention of resolving either one. The first involves Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) transformation into Killer Frost, which Barry (Grant Gustin) abandons his friends to deal with on their own as he races into the future to find answers about Savitar. Returning to the present nearly the same moment he left, Team Flash isn’t left on their own for long, but it does prove long enough for Caitlin to escape and further crystallize the timeline the Flash has desperately attempting to prevent.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven #6 comic reviewIt seems Buffy‘s days in the internment camp is coming to an end.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven #6 is a turning point in the shortened season. Now that Buffy knows that the government is looking for ways to drain all magical creatures (which would kill Spike and countless others), she’s going to need a plan.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - All the Madame's Men TV review

Life in the framework gets a bit easier for Daisy (Chloe Bennet) now that May (Ming-Na Wen) has turned her back on Hydra and used a Terrigen crystal to restore Quake’s powers. Despite Melinda not remembering the real world, her actions help bring the team closer together, although one member has fallen and another is still leading the enemy against them. It’s good to see Daisy and May on the same side again kicking some ass together, and Daisy has her own star moment quaking Aida (Mallory Jansen) through a sky-rise window, but the real stand-out here is Coulson (Clark Gregg) who steps up in a big way to fill the void left with the Patriot‘s death.
