Wayward Pines – Episode 2 – Do Not Discuss Your Life Before

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 13.42.14

Last week we tuned in for round two of the purest WTF moments of the week. The pilot wrapped up leaving us viewers with a million questions. What’s the deal with Sheriff Pope? What’s going in with TIME in WP? I’m still reeling from Bev’s confession that she arrived in 1999, and has been there around a year. Wake up Bev! It’s 2014! Well, at least in Burke’s mind.

Burke finished the first episode staring up at the huge fences that separate the town he now calls home from the outer world. Maybe you really can’t leave Wayward, much like how you couldn’t die in Fortitude (for those that have seen it). Do Not Discuss Your Life Before kicks off with Burke heading back to the house where he found the Secret Service agent’s body. Sheriff Pope rolls into the house, and Burke’s told that, rule numero uno, you don’t leave WP. (Think we got that by now, Popey). Pope sends him back to the hotel, which he does, for all of five minutes. Still with me? Okay, good. Let’s push on.

Wayward Pines – Episode 1 – Where Paradise is Home Review

Episode 1 - Where Paradise is Home

SPOILER ALERT!

After all the waiting, M. Night Shyamalan’s next project, the highly anticipated Wayward Pines is finally here! It hit screens last night, and after a clever and direct approach from the marketing team, the team here at The TV Ninja was shaking with excitement. Thankfully, we weren’t disappointed.

There’s a lot of people online comparing this show to Twin Peaks, and it’s not surprising. Any show that drops a detective in an unknown town shrouded in mystery is going to draw those comparisons, but tonally, it’s totally different. Let’s not label it and give it a chance to just be Wayward Pines, guys!

Hannibal – Season 2 Episode 2 – Sakizuki Review

Screen Shot 2014-03-28 at 14.27.39

The one question of everybody’s lips in Sakizuki is how does the killer choose his victims? We see one of the victims manage to tear himself (literally) free of his bindings and make a run for it. He almost makes it away safely, until he comes to the edge of the cliff and jumps. At least we know how they’re ending up in the water. Will’s still struggling to wrap his head around whats going on from the (lack of) comfort of his cell. Thanks for the shortened intro sequence!

 

Hannibal’s therapist has had enough of him and cancels their appointments going forward. She can’t help him further and is clearly terrified of him now she suspects he might be a killer. She even called him ‘dangerous.’ They still think the killer’s dumping the discards, but he’s not chucking the ones he doesn’t want away. Katz pays will a visit, something she’s chastised for by Crawford, and Hannibal resumes Will’s therapy. Continue reading

Revenge – Season 3 Episode 15 – Struggle Review

Picture 91

Things are getting heated in the Hamptons, so it was time to let someone go. Emily is on the verge of killing everyone, and with little choice left, it was up to Nolan to put things back on track.

Nolan seeks Aidan’s help to find Emily. She was about to go and murder everyone in a crazy rampage, but Aidan got there right on time and did what any good boyfriend would do: tie her to a chair and try to drown her. This is how they do it in their training I suppose. After some tough love she had all these flashbacks from her childhood and that was that, she was back, or so it seemed. Continue reading

The Walking Dead – Season 4 Episode 14 – The Grove Review

Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 12.44.06

Wow! This has to be the best episode of the season so far. Not only because it was a great hour of TV, but because it was the kind of TV that ripped your heart and soul out and danced all over them, so that by the time it was up I had no idea what was going through my head.

Tyrese, Carol and the girls were by far the focus of The Grove, and when they stumbled onto that house I knew something bad was going to happen. The Walking dead won’t ever let anyone be truly happy, not for long, and it was obvious the happy family home life wasn’t going to stick around here for the long term, but I had no idea what was about to happen.

The Originals – Season 1 Episode 15 – Le Grand Guinol Review

ImageOk, can someone explain to me what’s really going on here? After fourteen episodes of no sibling issues, there’s plenty to deal with in Le Grand Guinol. When Elijah plunged the blade into Klaus’ chest I, for one, was pretty darn shocked. Everything did feel a little too relaxed and comfortable amongst the original family, so I guess it was just time to kick off. Continue reading

Suits – Season 3 Episode 11 – Buried Secrets Review

ImageSo, we ended the last season on the notes that Rachel was going to stay with Mike, Harvey and Scotty were hooking up and Lewis, in a cruel twist on him getting busy in the Harvard records room, has a peek and finds out that Mike Ross has no official records at Harvard. Knowing how OCD Sheila is, there’s no way this little clerical error is her fault! Continue reading

The Walking Dead – Season 4 Episode 10 – Inmates Review

ImageAfter last weeks in depth look at what was going on with Michonne, Carl and Rick, we’re happy to find out what’s happened to all our favourite characters since the prison got taken down by the Governor. They’re all split up and scattered around the place, giving plenty of weird groupings, and new situations for problems.

The Walking Dead – Season 4 Episode 9 – After Review

Image

First of all, if you’re not up to date on The Walking Dead lock yourself in a room and sort it out. That and be careful because there are some HUGE spoilers here. Ok, so now that’s out of the way…

Are you over the mid season finale by now? Nope, didn’t think so. I’ve been itching for The Walking Dead to come back ever since the credit’s rolled on Episode 8 in December. Herschel (queue massive crying sesh) is dead, the Governor is too (huge sigh of relief) and the rest of the guys have split up, and hightailed it out of there. Whoever else asked if it could get any worse following the emotional horror show that was Lori’s demise recently got their answer.
