The Crown: Aberfan

Inscription: “From the remaining children of Aberfan.”

An episode so well done and yet so upsetting I had difficulty watching it.

Outlander: Blood of My Blood

So Lord John drops in out of the blue, with William in tow. Good thing the Frasers aren't living in the middle of nowhere. Um...

Watchmen: This Extraordinary Being

“The uniform a man wears changes him.”

We take a break from the insane 2019 plot to take a much needed insane trip down memory lane. One I greatly enjoyed.

Mr. Robot: 408 Request Timeout

“This secret was never mine to keep. And you deserve better than to spend so long in darkness.”

You'd expect this one to be a breather after the bombs that got dropped previously, but it turned out to be quite the opposite.

Supergirl: The Wrath of Rama Khan

Gamemnae: “Earthquakes with no death counts, floods with the ferocity of a leaky faucet.”

Supergirl's struggle against Leviathan reaches a boiling point as she faces off against Rama Khan. Meanwhile, as Lena and Hope work to launch Project Non Nocere (do no harm), Hope proves to be an invaluable asset to Lena.

The Matrix Revolutions

"It ends tonight."

The Matrix Revolutions is widely regarded as the trilogy's weakest entry and I am not going to dispute that. I will, however, dispute the idea that it's nothing but a complete train wreck.

Arrow: Reset

“I remember it differently.”

Live. Die. Repeat. Arrow-style.

The Matrix Reloaded

"Now consider the alternative. What if I am right? What if the prophecy is true? What if tomorrow the war could be over? Isn't that worth fighting for? Isn't that worth dying for?"

I hadn't seen either of the Matrix sequels since they first came out in 2003. While I watch the original whenever I get the chance, I've effectively stayed clear of Reloaded and Revolutions for the last 16 years. But when it was announced that a new film would start shooting next year, with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss returning as Neo and Trinity and Lana Wachowski writing and directing, I suddenly found myself interested in the world of The Matrix again. Not only that, but I was curious to actually watch the sequel again and see if thirtysomething me feels differently about them than twentysomething me did.

Harley Quinn: Til Death Do Us Part

“All I’m saying is that you can do better than Joker. You’re smart, you’re strong, you’re in control of your own destiny.”

First, a disclaimer.

The Flash: The Last Temptation of Barry Allen, Pt. 1

"How many times do I have to suffer for you? When is it your turn to suffer?"

By nature I love brevity: Something in the writing and execution of this one was a bit lacking, but the cast freaking killed it. In fact, this may be the best performance I've ever seen from Grant Gustin.

The Crown: Margaretology

Reporter: “What’s the biggest difference between Britain and America?”
Princess Margaret: “My sister isn’t on all the banknotes.”

The study of Margaret.

Watchmen: Little Fear of Lightning

“Call it a squid-pro-quo.”

This episode is all about how perception can become reality.
