Star Trek Deep Space Nine: Defiant

It doesn't look it at first, but in a manner of speaking this is a game-changing episode.

Farscape: Coup by Clam

And now, on Farscape...

Before this series gets all dramatic once more, we pause for this little romp on another strange and far out planet.

iZombie: Mac-Liv-Moore

“I came to slay I'm the real Renegade! Pick up where Mama left off, run with a pack of dogs!”

Opting for a lighter investigation that usual, 'Mac-Liv-Moore' uses a deluded white rapper's brain as fuel for more light-hearted side action, as the episode's main focus falls on the wider narratives. Despite being plagued with potential ways to derail itself, the episode manages to cut through a lot of interesting story beats, with a few laughs along the way.

Doux News Bi-Weekly Roundup: June 17, 2018

Nothing to do with the article,
but this is the first image from WW84
Lucifer rises, Playstation 5, The Berlantiverse shifts casts around, Eleven leaves Twitter, Captain Marvel gets a composer, Star Trek: Discovery loses its leads, Doctor Sleep finds Danny, Game of Thrones will never die, and more!

The Outer Limits: The Man Who Was Never Born

"Beauty is always on the edge of being lost."

A historian from the future tries to change the fate of the earth, and things do not go well.

The Originals: The Kindness of Strangers

“We all make each other miserable.”

What is family for if not for making each other miserable? Especially true for The Mikaelsons. Either busy cutting each other down, building each other up or avenging each other. Never a dull moment.

Newsflash: Lucifer rescued by Netflix!

We've just learned that Netflix has rescued Lucifer. TVLine says that we'll be getting a ten-episode season four.

Woo hoo! Season three had been sort of plodding along, but the last two episodes of the season were amazing and I've been dying to know what happens next. So I'm a happy camper. (Let me clarify that I'm talking about "Quintessential Deckerstar" and "A Devil of My Word," not the two episodes released after the cancellation.) I'm also already fantasizing about the possibility of Lucifer unleashed, as in less censorship.

Fear the Walking Dead: No One's Gone

And we can officially say that Fear the Walking Dead has become The Walking Dead: a nonsensical, boring mess so aggressively bad that it almost seems like it has active contempt for the audience. I was insulted by this finale, and I’m insulted by the inane decisions the new showrunners have made and continue to make.

The Handmaid's Tale: Smart Power

"No hate. No fear. Gilead's not welcome here."

The last couple of episodes have given me hope. Especially this one. Because of Canada! Big, beautiful Canada, where people still have cell phones and civil rights. Gay people. Women people. Gay women people!

The Flash: The Trial of the Flash

"My name is Barry Allen, and I'm an innocent man."

On one level this episode is exactly what it appears – the next step in The Thinker's plan to sideline The Flash and carry out his dastardly machinations. On the other it is a study in contrasts as a commentary on its overarching theme of truth versus perception. Unfortunately, it doesn't spend much time on any of it.

Westworld: Kiksuya

“This is the wrong world.”

This week on Westworld, story time with Akecheta!
