Gotham: Welcome Back Jim Gordon | S1-E13

By Dave Defino / 4 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 / 4 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 […]

Sleepy Hollow -Kindred Spirits | S3-E11

By Dave Defino / 4 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 / 4 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 / 4 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 / 4 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 […]

Sleepy Hollow – One Life | S3-E9

By Dave Defino / 4 years ago

Before we get into the review for the Sleepy Hollow return from mid season hiatus show, let’s discuss the problems a show like Sleepy Hollow has with a cliffhanger and a mid season hiatus. As you can tell, I am writing this almost a month after Sleepy Hollow returned to the air. Why so long? […]

The Politics of American Horror Story: Hotel

By Dave Defino / 4 years ago

There was a lot of talk when American Horror Story: Hotel first aired about it being the raunchiest season of AHS to date. Many people immediately attacked the show as a sign of the rampant debauchery in Hollywood. An attack on American values, or even a sign of the end times. I’ll admit, I had […]
