Preacher: Sokosha

"Say your prayers, preacher."

We finally get our showdown with the Saint of Killers.

Star Trek The Next Generation: Cost of Living

Alexander: “The higher, the fewer.”

This was a delightful episode with a tag-along B (A?) plot involving sparkly metal eating beings.

Discussion: Comic-Con Highlights

This year’s San Diego Comic-Con, like years past, was bursting with news, clips, and promotional materials from all regions of the pop-culture world. Rather than inundate you with an exhaustive and exhausting list of news that you’ve probably read elsewhere, the Agents of Doux were wondering which tidbit or trailer was your highlight:

Game of Thrones: Stormborn

“You’re a dragon.”

One of my favorite parts of George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire novels was the importance of information: pre-Twitter, pre-telegraph, communicating up-to-date news was no easy task, and being well-informed was a luxury of the wealthy who had access to ravens. That same emphasis on informational access led, of course, to the messiness of the later works, as innumerable characters got stuck in a state of perpetual reaction to news that was often out of date.

Bloodline: Part 15

"Because I realize there is no answer to my mother's question: Why? There's only human nature. And human nature needs to be nurtured... and policed. So as to save us from ourselves."

Doing bad things only seems to make it easier to keep doing bad things.

The X-Files: Nothing Important Happened Today

Case: A tall lady who likes to swim naked kills a member of the EPA and Doggett investigates.

Destination: Baltimore, MD

Welcome to the beginning of season nine. The turmoil behind the scenes is as interesting (or more) than the premiere episode. We get to find out a lot more about Scully’s baby and super-soldiers this season. Oh, goody.

Gotham: Zero Year

Well, so this sort of spiraled out of control.

Bloodline: Part 14

"I didn't think about Danny when he wasn't here, but of course he had a whole life going on outside this place. Who knows what else is out there?"

If you consider yourself to be a good person, how do you live with doing something unspeakably bad?

Star Trek The Next Generation: The First Duty

"You don't have to lie, just don't volunteer any new information."

Captain Picard and Dr Crusher go to visit Wesley after he is involved in a training accident, and has to take part in the resulting inquiry.

Preacher: Dallas

"This is America. Nut up or get out."

We take a break this episode to recount, through the use of flashbacks, the tale of how Jesse and Tulip broke up.
