TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 21 – A Legion of Horribles

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 21 - A Legion of Horribles

By Megan Wilde

“A Legion of Horribles” certainly lives up to its name. There are a lot of horribles in this episode: Nygma! Firefly! Strange! Clayface! And Fish is back, bitch! This is a fun episode, if you don’t take it too seriously

TV REVIEW: Fear the Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 5 – Captive

By Megan Wilde

“Captive” is an odd episode; in some ways, it’s frustrating, and in others it’s satisfying. Some things don’t make sense, but it’s good to see Alicia and Daniel being fairly competent. If only that extended to Chris! Alas, that most

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 20 – Unleashed

By Megan Wilde

This week, Gotham gets back to form with an episode that has lots going on and lots of action — and also more than the usual amount of meta, which I for one appreciate. “Unleashed” finds Azrael, well, unleashed, Bruce

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 19 – Azrael

By Megan Wilde

The episode name, “Azrael,” doesn’t lie — we see a lot of the character in this episode. It gives us his origin, and also a decent amount of him in action. It doesn’t really move the larger plot forward a

TV REVIEW: Fear the Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 4 – Blood In the Streets

TV REVIEW: Fear the Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 4 - Blood In the Streets

By Megan Wilde

There’s a lot to discuss with this episode. “Blood in the Streets” is a departure from the usual formula of this show. It’s a very solid episode that features flashbacks and playing with time a little so that you aren’t

TV REVIEW: Fear the Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 2 – We All Fall Down

TV REVIEW: Fear the Walking Dead Season 2, Episode 2 - We All Fall Down

By Megan Wilde

Fear the Walking Dead is a very different show from The Walking Dead, obviously. It takes a much slower pace with things — which is not necessarily a bad thing. The slower pace helps us to experience the uncertainty of

TV REVIEW: Gotham Season 2, Episode 18 – Pinewood

By Megan Wilde

Gotham episode 18 entitled “Pinewood” is an interesting one, for many reasons. It gives us some more information — not all good — about the Waynes; it shows us a new Barbara Kean; it introduces an interesting new character, only to
