Human Target - The Wife's Tale TV review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to the Second Season of Human Target. In “The Wife’s Tale,” Christopher Chance‘s (Mark Valley) past comes back to haunt him. Opening with an assassination he commited seven years ago, the episode jumps to the present where he attempts to protect the wife (Molly Parker) of the man (Dino Antoniou) he murdered from a similar fate. The fact that both jobs came to Chance from the same unscrupulous broker (M.C. Gainey) with plans of his own, and that the wife discovers Chance’s involvement in the death of her husband, complicate the situation even further.

Young Justice - Princes All TV review

Two years have passed since the end of the show’s Second Season and “Princes All.” In that time Nightwing (Jesse McCartney) has left the team, Aqualad (Khary Payton) has been promoted to a leadership role in the Justice League, and Miss Martian (Danica McKellar) is now the leader of the expanded teen heroes. There’s quite a bit of set-up in the season premiere including several members of the Justice League resigning feeling hamstrung by politics and current world affairs and introducing the idea of meta-humans being kidnapped, harvested, and sold around the galaxy as soldiers in galactic wars. The later brings a toned-down Nightwing back into the story on the trail of a new lead on the trafficking which opens the door to old friends (a few of whom he enlists on his latest mission).

Danger Man - Sabotage television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. As a favor for an old friend (Maggie Fitzgibbon), John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) heads to Southeast Asia to investigate the crash of two airplanes which Drake discovers are involved in both a smuggler’s (Bobby R. Naidoo) operation and a journalist’s (Oliver Burt) attempt to recover lost money and prestige in the region by blaming the crashes on the local government. The episode is notable mostly for Drake playing the role of a drunkard blackmailing pilot in order to undercover the operation (taking a pretty good beating by the smuggler’s goons in the process) and discover both the gold smuggling and the method the smuggler uses to deal with those who have outlived their usefulness.

Killjoys - Don't Stop Beweaving television review

“Don’t Stop Beweaving” begins and ends with our characters in a happy place, although there is plenty of trouble to get though in between. The episode opens with Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) celebrating the return of Lucy. After that things get a bit tricker as he and D’avin (Luke Macfarlane) work on turning prisoners into freedom fighters and Aneela (Hannah John-Kamen) and Zeph (Kelly McCormack) take a trip back to the scientist’s homeworld to follow a clue about the Lady back to the world of fundamentalists who Zeph ran from years ago. Meanwhile, Khlyen (Rob Stewart) has his own troubles both mourning the loss of his daughter (who isn’t yet dead) and with the Lady’s latest tantrums.
