“She-Hulk” Episode 9 Review

It’s been a week since the finale for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law dropped and after rewatching the episode, I still enjoy the finale as much as I did the first time. Instead of sticking to the formula developed by the other Marvel TV shows, She-Hulk tore down the fourth wall and made some changes. What … Continue reading “She-Hulk” Episode 9 Review

“The Rings of Power” Episode 8 Review

The first season for Amazon Prime’s The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has come to a close. After spending 8 hours watching this series, the only thing I can say at the end of it is… meh.

“Andor” Episode Six Review

Poster art for "Andor". Source: IMDB The build-up toward the heist on Aldhani in Andor has been slow and methodical.

But, like all good things, there must come an end to the … Continue reading “Andor” Episode Six Review

The Aftermath – “The Rings of Power” Episode 7 Review

After the cataclysmic events of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’s 6th episode, I was expected a bit more of a slower-paced episode. The showrunners and writers delivered a more introspective episode, even if it does rely on a red herring in one specific situation. The one major flaw of the episode … Continue reading The Aftermath – “The Rings of Power” Episode 7 Review

The Devil You Know – Review of “She-Hulk” Episode Eight

The penultimate episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law spent a good amount of time setting up something wonderful for Jennifer Walters, only to take it all away in the last few minutes. I have to give the writers of the show credit. For what has largely been a situational comedy up to this point, the … Continue reading The Devil You Know – Review of “She-Hulk” Episode Eight

Fraying at the Edges – Andor Episode 5 “The Axe Forgets” Review

The slower pace of the new Disney Plus series Andor allows the audience to soak in the characters showcased. From Mon Mothma, to Luthen, to Cassian Andor, we get to see each person in their element. Much of the fifth episode, titled “The Axe Forgets”, focuses on Cassian and the Rebels on Aldhani while cutting … Continue reading Fraying at the Edges – Andor Episode 5 “The Axe Forgets” Review

Too Good to be True – “She-Hulk” Episode Seven

After last week’s episode of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, I was expecting a rebound episode. The latest episode of the first season, titled “The Retreat”, was exactly what the show needed. Reintroducing Emil Blonsky in his new, more subdued persona was a treat. But for every fun moment that occurred during the episode, the ending … Continue reading Too Good to be True – “She-Hulk” Episode Seven

The Wheels Are in Motion – “Andor” Episode Four

The first three episodes of Andor set up and then paid off the initial arc. My expectations for the next episode were sky high. The fourth episode of the first season, titled “Aldhani”, picked up where the previous episode left off. The writers set the wheels in motion for more surprises. I was also excited … Continue reading The Wheels Are in Motion – “Andor” Episode Four

A Methodical Opening Note – Review of “Andor” Episodes 1, 2, & 3

Prequels are not always the best type of storytelling available, unless it is set far enough back that it doesn’t involve characters we already know. Because we know the ultimate fate of the character Cassian Andor (thanks to the excellent Rogue One film), we as the audience know that he’s ultimately going to survive the … Continue reading A Methodical Opening Note – Review of “Andor” Episodes 1, 2, & 3
