Gotham: The Demon's Head

Bruce Wayne has the worst luck finding friends.

The Flash: The Flash Reborn

"Bring me the Flash... or else your city falls."

This premiere was a great watch, but the followup was a mixed bag. The story, the cinematography, the mad science were all great and for once the romance and especially Iris were completely on the nose. Son, brother, best friend, colleague, husband - Barry’s absence is a hell composed of all these absences. But getting Barry back is a journey which revolves around two poles - Iris and Cisco. And I'm not sure these two entirely work together.

Supergirl: Triggers

“Your fears don’t define you.”

This episode tackles fear, and how crippling it can be.

Fear the Walking Dead: Third Season Finale

(This is a combined review of 3.15, "Things Bad Begun" and 3.16, "Sleigh Ride.")

This finale was their best so far. And wow, talk about a cliffhanger.

Star Trek Discovery: Choose Your Pain

"The name is Mudd. Harcourt Fenton Mudd, Harry for short."

Captain Lorca is captured, and Michael and Stamets have some trouble getting the spore drive working.

The X-Files: Audrey Pauley

Case: Agent Reyes is in a coma and apparently brain dead.

Destination: Falls Church, Virginia

Reyes: “There’s dog people and there’s cat people. You are a dog person, John.”

This is a lovely Reyes-centric episode with some lovelorn Doggett thrown in.

Arrow: Fallout

“William needs a parent, promise me that you will be his father."

The main theme of this first episode of season six seems to be about parenthood and it’s also going to be a continuing undercurrent running through the whole season, I’d imagine. That’s kind of a surprise, since I thought this opener would have been more focused on the aftermath, or fallout…of the whole island blowing up thing.

Doctor Who: Dragonfire

"This is naff. This is mega naff."

'Dragonfire' brings Sylvester McCoy's atrocious first season to a suitably atrocious end. But on the plus side it does introduce Ace and write out Mel so it ain't all bad.

Mr. Robot: eps3.0_power-saver-mode.h

"When we lose our principles, we invite chaos."

We are living in a state of disarray. Chaos is spreading, in fact as well as fiction.

Star Trek Discovery: The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry

"My ganglia remain unconvinced."

This was probably the weakest episode so far, suffering from a very by the numbers crisis of the week plot and way too many boring scenes with Voq and L'Rell, the dullest Klingons to ever exist.
