Grimm Season 4 finale recap: “Cry Havoc”

grimm-season-4-prince-kenneth

So folks, here it is, the final episode of the season. Some loose ends are tied up but the door gets kicked wide open at the end. We pick up exactly where we left off last week with Nick bellowing NOOOO! after being presented with his mother’s head in a box by Kenneth and the Goon Squad. Nick is nearly catatonic with grief and rage until Trubel, realizing that they are all in some deep, deep, well, trouble, assumes that after her run in with the Hundjaeger, they’re likely caught in a trap, and it might be a really good … Continue reading

Grimm Recap Season 4 episode 20 “You Don’t Know Jack”

grimm-episode-420-juliette

After the stunt Juliette pulled on last week’s Grimm, attempting to burn down Nick’s life, I have to admit that there are only two fates I want to see for her: a) I kinda hope she stays evil, because at least she’s scary and fun, or b) she get’s killed. While she’s become truly horrible as a Hexenbiest, it sure beats having her mope around doing nothing. That said… The monster squad, Nick, Hank, Monroe and Wu pay a visit to the burned out trailer. Inside, the devastation is substantial, but not a complete loss. As they survey the damage, … Continue reading

Matt Dillon Leads All-Star Cast In Creepy, Genre-Bending Thriller “Wayward Pines”

Matt Dillon Leads All-Star Cast In Creepy, Genre-Bending Thriller "Wayward Pines"

How do you describe the indescribable? That is one of the biggest challenges facing FOX’s 10-part psychological thriller, Wayward Pines. A secret service agent finds himself in an idyllic town, but upon closer inspection, he realizes that the residents live under a strict set of rules governed by a sinister, omnipresent force. It’s a premise eerily familiar to fans of the cult drama Twin Peaks, or even the short-lived NBC drama Persons Unknown, but Pines comes with a series of tantalizing twists courtesy of the show’s executive producer and director, M. Night Shyamalan. The series is Shyamalan’s first project for … Continue reading

An overcast day at a farm somewhere, as group of campers is getting their gear together for a trip.

Grimm recap Season 4 episode 18: “Mishipeshu”

grimm-season-4-episode-18

“Two days from now,” reads the title card as Hank and Nick have a big ol’ brawl to start out this week’s Grimm. Hank seems to be getting the better of Nick, which is strange until we see that Hank’s eyes seem to be glowing yellow. Which isn’t a good thing on any show, let’s be honest, but especially not on this one. Cut to “Now” as Monroe and Rosalee have Nick and Hank over for a quiet dinner. Monroe offers everyone wine because they drink a lot of wine in Portland, but Nick needs something stronger. The whiskey just … Continue reading

Grimm Season 4 episode 17 recap: “Hibernaculum”

grimm-nbc-hiberniculum-bodies

As we being this week’s Grimm, sad Nick is eating alone at home. He sadly looks at a picture of him and Juliette from before and, sadly, lays it face down. Did I mention he is sad? Meanwhile, in a no less sad place, Renard is at home, presumably after the throwdown with Prince Kenneth (not a very Royal name, I must add) checking out his battle wounds. Juliette barges in all hot under the collar asking where Adalind is and if she’s still in town, because Juliette is going to kill her. Renard admits that’s a pretty good idea … Continue reading

grimm-season-5-episode-16-bella-cindy

Aah, domestic bliss. Renard is sleeping in his bed when Juliette comes storming into his room, furious. After she cut her hand to open Adalind’s little book, there is nothing in it that can fix her. She want’s her life back, and if she doesn’t get it, she warns, something very bad is going to happen. Poor Renard hasn’t even had his coffee yet. Meanwhile, a group of mountain bikers are racing along a trail. They stop to take a breather. A guy starts to get fresh with one of the riders, Bella, but she’s having none of it, because … Continue reading

Recap: The Walking Dead Season 5 finale, “Conquer” — Wolves at the door

the-walking-dead-morgan

As we head into The Walking Dead Season 5 finale, the delicate peace — at least what we assume to be peace — at Alexandria has been amassing stress fractures since the moment Our Gang arrived at the gates. The dream of “Civilization” is a good one, but it has been postponed out of necessity. The townsfolk have been exposed as being seriously unprepared to deal with good guys, let alone the absolute batshit crazies we meet tonight. The events of the episode could have been so much worse (the group cohesion that looked like it was breaking remains intact … Continue reading

Recap: The Walking Dead Season 5 episode 15 “Try”: Us and them ….

the-walking-dead-episode-515-deanna-rick

Alexandria has become something of a Rorschach test. For some it’s a paradise, for others it is possibly the last or first bastion of a civilized society, while some see it as a flock of sheep waiting to be lead. Those illusions are being exposed rather quickly. It’s no coincidence that things went south in Alexandria almost as soon as Our Gang stepped through the gates. The friction is palpable, with people who once thought of themselves useful or even heroic have been exposed as frauds, and a town that once seemed civilized is coming to see that their utopia … Continue reading
