Sleepy Hollow: Into The Wild | S3-E14

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

Into the Wild, the 14th episode of Sleepy Hollow’s third season, abandons the goodness of having everyone work together to go back to the old formula of having everyone doing their own thing, and intercutting between the separate stories. Abbie needs to go off on a FBI survival training exercise. This leaves Crane to continue […]

Gotham: The Fearsome Dr Crane | S1–E14

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

So the Gotham soap opera goes on. This week actually had a pretty good villain, and a different side of Bullock. But we will get to that in a minute. The Fearsome Dr Crane opens with a poor gentleman tied to a chair being winched out over a rooftop on some pulleys. The aggressor (Dr […]

Sleepy Hollow: Dark Mirror | S3-E13

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

Dark Mirror is an episode that really sums up what Sleepy Hollow has become. There was so much potential in this episode. We had a monster ripped from American Folklore: The Jersey Devil. The monster was brilliantly woven into the Sleepy Hollow world by being a former adversary of Benjamin Franklin named Leeds who turned […]

Gotham: Welcome Back Jim Gordon | S1-E13

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

Welcome Back Jim Gordon starts off like a regular old cop show. Gordon and Bullock are called to a “public service” killing. A drug dealer is killed and hung up in a warehouse. Gordon finds some packets of drugs hidden in the guys false heel, but other then that, no clues. Bullock finds a janitor […]

Sleepy Hollow: Sins of the Father | S3-E12

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

Let’s face it, Sins of the Father wasn’t a very good episode of Sleepy Hollow. It was still fun to watch, it had some good moments, but overall, it wasn’t good. First, I have a problem with needlessly harkening back to earlier episodes. If someone who had never seen Sleepy Hollow before, tuned in to […]

Gotham: What the Little Bird Told Him | S1-E12

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

Continuing on with the story in Gotham: The Soap Opera, What the Little Bird Told Him starts with Jim Gordon making his way tentatively back to the GCPD by convincing the current police commissioner that he is the only person who can catch the escaped Aaron Helzinger, and Jack Gruber (now being referred to as […]

Sleepy Hollow -Kindred Spirits | S3-E11

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

It is no secret that Sleepy Hollow has had it’s ups and downs. I think it is fair to say that most fans stay with the show because of the characters and how they are portrayed more then for the writing, or storyline. The writers of Sleepy Hollow are often times so concerned with their […]

Gotham: Rogues Gallery | S1-E11

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

Gotham has officially fallen into soap opera territory. If you are a reader of this blog, you might have picked up on the fact that I do not generally like this type of show. I had high hopes that Gotham would be a police procedural that happens to take place in the Batman universe. A […]

Sleepy Hollow: Incident at Stone Manor | S3-E10

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

Well Incident at Stone Manor was an odd episode of Sleepy Hollow. The majority of the episode takes place in the alternate reality that Abbie is trapped in. A place Pandora calls the Catacombs. Time travels at a different pace in the Catacombs and while it has only been a few weeks in the real […]

Gotham: Lovecraft | S1-E10

By Dave Defino / 3 years ago

Well it looks like Gotham (at least for this episode) has completely given up on being a police procedural episodic show, and gone into Batman backstory soap opera territory. Not that there is anything wrong with it. Lots of shows do it. Sons of Anarchy, Rome, Game of Thrones, American Horror Story… They are all […]
