Arrow: Suicidal Tendencies

Lyla: "Let's not fight, Johnny. It's our honeymoon."

Well this was both unexpected and a lot of fun. Who knew Deadshot had a soul?

iZombie: Brother, Can You Spare a Brain?

“There were parts of me that were dead even before I became a zombie.”

It’s a risky move to have the protagonist of a series like this change their personality week to week. It’s something that Dollhouse tried before, with mixed results. This episode proved that the series can make these new traits work without making Liv herself inconsequential.

The Americans: Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?

... in which Elizabeth and Philip attempt to place a new bug inside the FBI, while Stan and Oleg collaborate again in their effort to help Nina.

Just as Philip K. Dick used his Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? to explore those qualities that make us human, The Americans uses its own ‘Electric Sheep’ to explore the quality of empathy in the world of spies: specifically, the potential dangers of too much empathy versus the danger of not enough.

Supernatural: Paint It Black

"Sammy, how long has it been since my last confession?"

Did this episode seem somewhat Catholic to you?

Cinderella (2015)

"Where there is kindness, there is goodness. Where there is goodness, there is magic."

Cinderella has always been a favorite. I loved the 1950s version when I was a kid, I loved every reimagination of it since and I couldn't help but love this movie too.

[This review includes spoilers.]

Justified: Trust

"I'm just saying last time we tried something like this, we ended up with his underwear."

Does love conquer all, even among the criminal element?

The Flash: Rogue Time

"You ruptured the time continuum, didn't you?"

Barry Allen’s first stumble through time turns into a colossal sequence of errors which results in not one but three killer criminals on the loose in Central City. This sequel to last week’s cliffhanger is a stomach-wrencher in the best of all possible ways, and the show's time-reset rocks in a well-structured way with a few surprises.

Continuum: Second Wave

"Are you ready to be enlightened, brother?"

This was an incredibly dense episode, which is not necessarily a bad thing. And there was a big blurring of factions. Who is on whose side? I don't even know at this point whose side Dillon is on. For that matter, I still don't know whose side I'm on.

The Walking Dead: Try

Rick: “We know what needs to be done and we do it. We’re the ones who live.”

Rick has gone over the edge. He has turned into the uncivilized man who cannot live with 'good' people. Or has he?

Star Trek The Next Generation: Contagion

Fate protects fools, little children, and ships called Enterprise. -Cmdr. Wm. Riker

An alien operating system clashes with the Galaxy-class Enterprise computer, causing the ship to be next to stranded in the Neutral Zone... And when the Romulans are around to notice, too. A nice set up for what turns out to be a somewhat eccentric episode that misses more than it hits.
