Supergirl: Human for a Day

“You don't even need powers to be a hero.”

This is my favorite episode of season one and not just because we finally find out what Hank has been hiding.

Star Trek Deep Space Nine: The Maquis, Pt. 1

"If there's an emergency, I guess you're out of luck."

When a Cardassian ship is destroyed right next to the docking pylons of Deep Space Nine, Sisko and his crew – and even Quark – are drawn into a web of intrigue and interspecies skulduggery which result in his teaming up with Gul Dukat to find the truth.

Star Trek The Next Generation: Devil's Due

"It's just a standard contract with an unusually long term."

Well, it could have been worse. We did get to see Picard in his jammies.

Doctor Who: Frontios

"I got this one cheap because the walk's not quite right. And then there's the accent..."

Oh great, someone let Chris Bidmead back into the Doctor Who production office.

Fall 2016 Premiere Dates

I'll let Edna St. Vincent Millay introduce this post:

When reeds are dead and a straw to thatch the marshes,
And feathered pampas-grass rides into the wind
Like aged warriors westward, tragic, thinned
Of half their tribe, and over the flattened rushes,
Stripped of its secret, open, stark and bleak,
Blackens afar the half-forgotten creek,—
Then leans on me the weight of the year, and crushes
My heart. I know that Beauty must ail and die,
And will be born again,—but ah, to see
Beauty stiffened, staring up at the sky!
Oh, Autumn! Autumn!—What is the Spring to me?*

Farscape: ...Different Destinations


"I got shot at a peace memorial!"

Doctor Who: The Awakening

"Doctor? Doctor ain't a proper name. Will Chandler be a proper name."

The Doctor and his companions arrive in a small English village where something evil is lurking behind a crack in a wall. Hmm, something tells me Steven Moffat might've been taking notes when he first saw this one. And I'm sure one of those notes was probably "must do better."

Mr. Robot: eps2.2_init_1.asec

"My beliefs create my own reality. My beliefs create my own reality."

This time on Mr. Robot, everyone seems to be fighting futile battles, struggling to determine where they stand. Only a few are still concerned with bigger pictures and end-games, while the rest are out purely for survival
