Finale Puts Krypton on a Highway to “The Phantom Zone”

Thank Rao that Syfy announced Krypton’s renewal before this episode aired. With all the crazy cancellations flying around, it would’ve been too nerve-wracking not knowing if there was going to be a continuation to this story. There were a lot of big characters M.I.A. in this finale such as Jayna […]

Facing Annihilation, Krypton Holds Out “Hope”

I think the most interesting aspect of Krypton so far is the interpersonal dynamics and the implications therein. Beyond that, there are some AWESOME reveals in this penultimate episode.

It’s All About the Follow-Through In Lucifer Finale “A Devil of My Word”

Although last week’s cancellation news cast a bitter pall over the finale, it was nevertheless a powerful and exciting conclusion to the season with great potential if they are able to find a network saviour via the #SaveLucifer campaign.

Lucifer’s Looking for the Old Normal in “Quintessential Deckerstar”

I’ve never been a fan of two-parters or cliffhangers but the├é┬áLucifer team manages a real feat with this penultimate season episode. It’s a solid return to form for a show that’s wobbled a bit this year. There are real emotional risks taken, a powerful double baddie bagging, and a satisfying […]

Krypton’s Heroes Assemble in “Transformation”

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Three Zods, an El, and a Vex walk into a bar… But I’m getting ahead of myself. This is an episode about true colours. In the case of Daron, that would be coward’s yellow as he throws his own daughter under the Brainiac […]

Lucifer Detects and Chloe Parties When It’s “All Hands on Decker”

Things move quickly in Lucifer-land these days. Chloe no sooner agrees to marry Pierce/Cain than they set a date for a mere three months which kicks Ella into high gear to throw the ultimate bachelorette party. The guests are working at cross-purposes though since Charlotte’s looking to break the engagement […]

Krypton Makes Strange Bedfellows in “Civil Wars”

So I’m obviously a little slow on the uptake these days. Despite the Commander revealing in “House of Zod” that he is Lyta’s future son, I was still taken by surprise when Adam Strange pops up and identifies him as THE General Zod from the Superman timeline. The action was […]

Lucifer Makes the Wrong Proposal in “Anything Pierce Can Do I Can Do Better”

Pissing contests are rarely about the actual competition or even about the piss. It’s about the opponent. As Cain/Pierce’s most recent plan for ridding himself of immortality has involved winning Chloe’s affections, Lucifer has become more and more preoccupied with besting the world’s first murderer/past crime lord/present-day police lieutenant. And […]
