Constantine 1×10 ‘Quid Pro Quo’: Only one of us is coming back

This week’s episode of Constantine finally revealed the source of Chas’ supposed immortality. Once again, they’ve abandoned the main plot. At this point in the series, you could easily rearrange all the episodes with no bearing on the viewer. Yeung Wing is an aspiring TV critic, writer and editor. You can see her past work on […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Last Ship 1×10 ‘No Place Like Home’:

Holy crap. For the first time all season, The Last Ship shocked me. I’m now wondering if all those times this show was predictable and cliche was just them playing the long con. What appeared to be a story of hope took a very dark turn. Yeung Wing is an aspiring TV critic, writer and editor. You […]

The Last Ship 1×05 ‘El Toro’: A world worth saving

My biggest criticism for The Last Ship is that it hasn’t been connecting to the viewer emotionally. Well this week, I got what I asked for. Was it cliched? Yes. Was it emotionally manipulative? Yes. Did it work? Yes. Yeung Wing is an aspiring TV critic, writer and editor. You can see her past work on […]

Penny Dreadful ‘Grand Guignol’ 1×08: The monster is not in my face, but in my soul

There is a line that has been repeated often these past few episodes, ‘There cannot be a happy end, for claw with slash and tooth will rend.’ Perhaps this is the maxim of the series; unless the characters are able to change their very natures, they will not have a happy end.   The last […]

Penny Dreadful 1×07 ‘Possession’: What makes a mother?

After this week’s episode of Penny Dreadful, I’m convinced that Eva Green must have experienced demonic possession at some point in her life. The narrative has barely moved since the first episode. It hardly seems like the penultimate episode of Penny Dreadful.  We might as well call it The Eva Green Show (which should really be a thing). Yeung […]

Penny Dreadful 1×06 ‘What Death Can Join Together’: Sex is sin

In this latest episode of Penny Dreadful, I wonder if they’ve teased us a little too much. For the first time ever while watching this series, I found myself browsing Reddit on my phone. We’re already 75% through with the season and yet the plot has only inched forward. While Penny Dreadful continues to deliver great episodes, […]

Agustín is dealing with the fallout from last week’s breakup. And Dom is trying his best to open a restaurant. Brock Kimbrel is a social media specialist from […]

Agents of SHIELD 1×06 ‘F.Z.Z.T’: The writers are throwing Fitz

This episode of shield brought about many things. First it was the first episode to showcase our erstwhile team members Fitz and Simmons and really showed us the chemistry those two actors are capable of mustering. Secondly it brought a great thematic element of Coulson’s trauma to the surface (which is highly likely to be […]

Marvel’s Agents of Shield 1×02 ‘0-8-4’: You took a bullet? Ish.

This episode was a return to something I love that has been missing from the television line-ups: Monster of the week business. Of course, by monster I mean “084” the SHIELD lingo for the interesting things we’ll be seeing throughout this season. This particular episode is based out of Peru with a large dose of […]
