  • The X-Files 11×03 Review: Plus One

    While I wasn’t fond of the season 11 premiere, it’s safe to say that The X-Files is back on track with “Plus One”, which was a great follow-up to last week’s “This”. I’ll get this out of the way – perhaps I missed something, but the one thing that confused me about “Plus One” was […]


  • Vikings 5×09 Review: A Simple Story

    If there’s one thing to be said about “A Simple Story”, it’s that this episode drives the Vikings season 5 plot forward – and does so very, very quickly. Normally I would say that episodes that move things along the way “A Simple Story” did are great, but I’m still not fond of the time […]

    The first season of The X-Files revival left us dangling nearly two years ago, but the finale that left me asking, “Wait, what? Why?” with all of its loose ends was almost entirely wrapped up in the season 11 premiere, “My Struggle III”. I suppose I should have expected as much based on the episode […]


  • Star Trek Discovery 1×11 Review: Despite Yourself

    The episode ‘Despite Yourself’ brought Star Trek: Discovery back from the long winter break.  To put simply, it was brutal.  While it confirmed a lot of things we’d been speculating about, it came at such a high cost that I almost couldn’t enjoy the revelations. As I’ve been speculating pretty much constantly in my Star […]
