Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #6

Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #6 comic reviewThe death of Ben Reilly‘s patient marks the end of Kaine‘s patience. However, before pitting the two Scarlet Spiders against each other once more, the comic introduces a wild card in Marlo Chandler-Jones who seems to have an unusual effect on both Ben and Kaine. Inspiring Ben to go after a pair of thugs shooting up Las Vegas, the Scarlet Spider jumps into action (although he does have to be talked out of gunning down the villains in the middle of the street by one of their would-be victims).

The introduction of Marlo certainly muddies the waters. Just what does the strange woman want from Ben? Her various powers over the years have been less than consistent, so just what is giving her influence over not one but both Scarlet Spiders? And why does she seem more interested in the original?

Hooten and the Lady - Cambodia  television review

Despite his attempts to keep her out of his latest expedition, Alex (Ophelia Lovibond) shows up in Cambodia to help Hooten (Michael Landes) hunt for the Cintamani jewel. With the help of a local kid (Jay Heyman), Hooten has been able to find most of the relics needed, although he’ll need Alex’s help to get past some drug runners and decipher the clues leading to the jewel’s location. The trouble is that they aren’t the only ones on the hunt. Hooten’s old partner Kane (Vincent Regan) is also searching for the prize.

The Freemaker Adventures - Return of the Return of the Jedi TV review

Set during the Battle of Endor, the season finale of LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures offers the final confrontation between Rowan (Nicolas Cantu) and M-OC (James Urbaniak) deep in the bowels of the second Death Star as the Rebels race to destroy the Emperor‘s super-weapon. Along the way the Freemakers will also get thrown into the detention block, Zander (Eugene Byrd) will get his moment with Becky Smoochenbacher, and the Freemakers will celebrate the Rebellion’s victory – Ewok style. “Return of the Return of the Jedi” isn’t really a stand-out, but it proves to be a satisfactory conclusion to the season’s arc.
