The Flash: True Colors

It doesn’t take a genius to recognize this week’s theme although having the song stuck in your head for the rest of the day may be your price of admission.

Star Trek Deep Space Nine: Past Tense (Part I and II)

"They made some ugly mistakes, but they also paved the way."

A complex two-parter of Deep Space Nine sees Sisko, Dax and Bashir going back to the twenty-first century – and an event that changes the future forever.

Star Trek The Next Generation: Aquiel

"I think you've let your personal feelings cloud your judgment."

Crusher, Riker Worf and Geordi discover what appears to be a murder scene at a relay station almost as empty as the Marie Celeste.

Doctor Who: The Greatest Show in the Galaxy

"It was naff and it was boring."

You've hit the nail right on the head there, Ace.

Cloak & Dagger: Funhouse Mirrors

"What's wrong with the city?"
"S**t goes down from time to time."

Ty, Tandy, and Detective O'Reilly each play their own separate undercover sting operations in an episode that manages to explore the cliched 'Dark mirror of the main character' trope without becoming irritating or dragging the masquerades out too long.

All this, plus we finally get some information about Roxxon's big, evil plan.

Nicely played, show. Now please have Ty put that Cloak on.

Five Shows that Were a Bear to Review

It's safe to say that I've written a whole lot of reviews. Thousands, even, and that's just Supernatural... no, I'm kidding, but it really does number in the thousands.

Doux News Bi-Monthly Roundup: July 15, 2018

That's right, I'm back!
Scarlett will not own a massage parlor, Joaquin’s hair goes green, Neill Blomkamp turns to another 80’s franchise, Tarantino casts everyone, Whedon returns, A Doctor smiles and more!

The 100: Sic Semper Tyrannis

"He made his choice."

For this week's installment it feels like what we've done is put all the pieces that make up our new 100 in a jar, shook the bejeezus out of them and tossed them back onto the table to see where it all landed.

24: Day 7 Review

Larry: "The rules are what make us better."
Jack: "Not today."

Day 7 takes place entirely in Washington, DC. Early episodes centered around a "CIP device" that could, and did, penetrate the U.S.'s computer network firewall; later episodes followed a bio-weapon developed in Sangala as it was used in terrorist attacks in the DC area.

The Handmaid's Tale: The Word

I don't usually read reviews by other critics before I write my own, but I've found myself doing it often with The Handmaid's Tale. And I am constantly surprised by how negative they are. I'm not talking about pointing out flaws; no show is perfect. But in general. Oh, it's such a terrific show, the writing, the acting, the photography, consistently excellent, but it's just too bleak, it goes too far, it's simply too horrifying.

3%: Frogs

"Deaths are part of the fight."

And deaths are part of this episode as well.

Star Trek The Next Generation: Ship in a Bottle

"This contradicts everything we know about holodeck physics."

I'm not into holodeck-gone-wrong episodes, but this one has to be my favorite. It's exceptionally clever, and tremendous fun.
