Pretty Little Liars 6×06 ‘No Stone Unturned’ This Stone is a Red Herring

After a 2-week break the Liars are back, set on discovering the secrets of Lesli Stone. Like fake glasses, dog cages, and a messy car. She might have some issues, but she certainly isn’t ‘A’.  Shea McKeown a self professed ‘internet nerd’,spends way too much of her free time online. When she isn’t stuck in […]

Penny Dreadful 2×08 ‘Memento Mori’: Now they shall kneel to me

This week’s Penny Dreadful dealt with the demons of the past catching up with us. While the suspense was expertly crafted as always, there was a little too much build up and not nearly enough satisfaction for me to fully enjoy it. Each storyline is as well written as the next, but how they merge together is […]

Penny Dreadful 2×07 ‘Little Scorpion’: My god, let him be happy

Penny Dreadful features an awful lot of build up and not much pay off at the end. Last week’s episode escalated into Ethan’s transformation and a bloody ball. We start off the episode with the morning after. We’re starting to see the effect Evelyn Poole has on Sir Malcolm. Sir Malcolm begins to doubt Vanessa, and […]

Penny Dreadful 2×02 ‘Verbis Diablo’: We have no fear of God, so we are accountable to no one but each other

This week’s episode of Penny Dreadful has got to be one of its best. Equal parts engaging, terrifying, and intriguing. This show constantly leaves me hungry for more. Yeung Wing is an aspiring TV critic, writer and editor. You can see her past work on her Tumblr! She lives her life through escapism.

The Blacklist 2×21 ‘Karakurt’: Fire in the Hole

This week’s episode was pretty intense and I really liked it even though we still didn’t get a lot of information on Liz and Red’s past. There was a lot going on though and it really helped get the viewers pumped up for the season finale.  Nathan S. is a teenager who is addicted to […]

Chicago PD 2×21 ‘There’s My Girl’ Nadia DeCotis: An Angry Rant

They hit us right in the feels! The recap from last week is jam packed with clips of Nadia. They show Erin encouraging her, Platt celebrating with her, Nadia’s determination with being a cop and then they show us what happened to her in New York. For those of us who didn’t watch the final […]

House of Cards 3×12 & 3×13: Without me, you are nothing

In the previous three episodes, we saw Claire lose her ambassadorship because Viktor Petrov said so. Tom tried fruitlessly to dig deeper into the inner workings of Claire and Frank’s marriage. Frank screwed over Jackie in the debate, she dropped out and endorsed Heather Dunbar, and Remy quit forever. Let’s see how these chapters end. […]

Pretty Little Liars 5×22 ‘To Plea or Not To Plea’ Jail is the new High School

The countdown is on. Only 2 episodes left this season, and it is getting REAL! The case A has been building all season has closed on one of our pretty little liars and they have been arrested as Alison’s accomplice.  Shea McKeown a self professed ‘internet nerd’,spends way too much of her free time online.

Constantine 1×13 “Waiting for the Man”: I don’t play if I can’t win

After an inconsistent season, Constantine is finally over. It didn’t quite feel like a finale, although that was to be expected due to the lack of a running plot. ‘Waiting for the Man’ had its moments, and occasionally, Constantine‘s busy episodes work well. This wasn’t one of them. Without sufficient build up and character development throughout the […]

Constantine 1×12 “Angels and Ministers of Grace”: If this is my gift, I’ll put up with the pain

Constantine really stepped up their game this week. For once, there wasn’t any half-assed reason why one member of the gang wasn’t available to fight evil. Everyone was involved in the story and contributed. Yay! It still didn’t quite feel like the penultimate episode of the season (and possibly series) but it’s still a step […]

Constantine 1×11 “A Whole World Out There”: Liberation is the purpose

Once again, Constantine delivers yet another wholly unoriginal episode. The difference is, this time it was actually entertaining. The flaws that have been seen throughout the season were still present, but there was a definite improvement in pacing and I’ll admit that Constantine‘s scares are always consistent. Yeung Wing is an aspiring TV critic, writer and editor. […]

Constantine 1×09 “The Saint of Last Resorts, Part 2”: Bloody John Constantine, center of attention again

Things were looking up for Constantine in the last episode – the show not the character (actually things were looking pretty bleak for John Constantine). It was getting to be a little more original, a little more exciting and a little more ‘big picture’. Unfortunately all this was thrown out the window within the first five minutes […]

Castle 7×11 ‘Castle, P.I.’: The best thing to ever happen

I knew there would be hijinks, but God, the hijinks were ON FIRE LAST NIGHT! Yes, I know, there is no reason to scream, and that sentence made absolutely no sense, but I AM SO HAPPY! Marnie Azzarelli is your average everyday horror writer and TV watcher, who finds herself connecting on a deep level […]

Constantine 1×07 ‘Blessed are the Damned’: Guiding, judging, damning

So have Chas and Zed ever been in the same episode together? It kinda seems like John’s become too much for them to handle and they’re tag-teaming. Look, I get isolating the characters to explore more of their history, but clearly that’s not happening here, so why not just put them together? We’re more than […]

Constantine 1×06 ‘Rage of Caliban’: Blahblah Rising Darkness, basically.

This week’s episode featured a little boy being possessed by a malevolent spirit hellbent on murdering parents. Sound familiar? Probably because it’s been done thousands of times before. And for good reason too, there’s something about scary children. Yeung Wing is an aspiring TV critic, writer and editor. You can see her past work on […]

Constantine 1×05 ‘Danse Vaudou’: Jackass of all trades, master of none

Unfortunately (or fortunately, as with many things it’s all about perspective) the review of the latest episode in Constantine will be a short one. Too bad the episode wasn’t. Not only does Constantine need to find a way to distinguish itself from other shows, it needs to distinguish its own episodes from each other. Yeung Wing is […]

Constantine 1×04 ‘A Feast of Friends’: Not yet hungry for more

Looks like it took four episodes for Constantine to get into its groove. It isn’t flawless, but the scratches are definitely getting buffed out. The episodes are getting tediously formulaic, but not always to the show’s detriment. It’s less arbitrary and its formula gives it quite a bit more structure. All in all, it’s obvious Constantine is still […]

Constantine 1×03 ‘The Devil’s Vinyl’: Prayer is one big negotiation

You know what sounds like a great premise for a television show? How about two people seeking out supernatural disturbances, traveling all over the country and solving said supernatural disturbances? Pretty good eh? Too bad it’s already been done, a la Supernatural. And this is the show’s biggest hurdle – making it unique for the viewers. Yeung […]

Constantine 1×02 ‘The Darkness Beneath’: There are those who pray for you, there are those that prey on you

This week’s episode of Constantine remains as disjointed as the last. It’s still flashy as ever – explosions, wisecracks and monsters aplenty – but beneath the shiny veneer, it lacks substance and originality. Yeung Wing is an aspiring TV critic, writer and editor. You can see her past work on her Tumblr! She lives her life […]

About a Boy 2×01 ‘About a Vasectomy’ : About a change for the better

About a Boy is back! Is it better than ever? I would say: Astonishingly, yes. I’ve had problems in the past and I’m sure it’ll stumble; but, for this episode, it was very enjoyable. (I laughed out loud a couple times). The actors have really come into their own and the writing is realistically funny […]
