The Strain – “Creatures of the Night” Review. Nailed It!

As much as I want to see a continuation, even a small tidbit of where the strigoi SWAT team comes from in last week’s “For Services Rendered,” I can’t say I’m at all disappointed in what goes down in this week’s “Creatures of the Night.” If the title doesn’t clue you in, this episode explores how the newborn strigoi—a type of vampire, according to our resident strigoi guru Abraham (David Bradley)—behave when stalking their prey. I thought they were mindless, blood thirty creatures, but on the contrary, they are clever in how they corner their victims.

Outlander –“The Gathering” Review. Where Everyone’s Invited.

“The Gathering” does well to throw in a few action shots, dramatic moments, and heartfelt words to catch your attention. I don’t get all of the politics surrounding the pledging and whatnot, but I do enjoy the costumes, music, and set design.

Ray Donovan – “Sunny” Top Three Moments. From Bad to Worse.

Mickey is expert at spinning tales.

“Sunny” does a good job of furthering everyone’s story lines—some ending and some continuing—as we near the end of season two of Ray Donovan. I’m not sorry Bridget’s first love is over; maybe now, she’ll stop lying and listen to her parents for a change. She certainly has her eyes opened for her, doesn’t she? Now that Kate knows Ray lied to her, it’s only a matter of time before she uncovers the truth. But will she be allowed to do that? The truth could cost some people very dearly if it ever comes to light. With Terry returning his paychecks to Harriet (Jayne Taini), will he and Frances (Brooke Smith) take off for Ireland? And as far as Abby and Ray are concerned, do you think they’re headed for divorce? Is that what Abby wants or has she perhaps taken her relationship with Jim a bit too far?

I also spoke with writer David Eick who gave us major insight into what’s coming in the final season.

Tyrant Season Finale – “Gone Fishing” Retrospective. What If?

If you were expecting a lot of fireworks in the season finale of Tyrant, you’ll be disappointed. There are no fireworks at all. For that matter, no one even raises their voice. I know writers Howard Gordon and Chris Keyser could have done a better job. The cliffhanger isn’t even a proper cliffhanger as we all know there’s no way Jamal is going to execute Barry. Unless, of course, Rayner wants off the show next season. All in all, as season finales go, “Gone Fishing” is a huge disappointment for me.

The Lottery –“Sleep Deprived” Top Three Moments. Imaginary Babies.

“Sleep Deprived” does a fair job of moving along the plot. My concern is the lack of time spent in the lab finding a cure, and the actual lottery itself. No one said it would be a fricking game show.

The Strain – “For Services Rendered” Review. Strigoi SWAT Team?

Let’s address the ginormous elephant in the room – who the hell are those hooded men (for lack of a better term) who come charging their way through Joan Luss’ (Leslie Hope) house? Whoever you are, thank you for saving Neeva (Kim Roberts) and the Luss children, but what the heck are you? They’re like the Strigoi SWAT Team; they look like strigoi but aren’t mindless like the newbies wandering the streets. I’ve asked before and I’ll ask again – do these strigoi creatures become more civilized with time? Are they able to control their thirst like the enigmatic Thomas Eichorst (Richard Sammel)? I’m thoroughly intrigued and buckled in for the long haul!

Falling Skies – “Drawing Straws” Top Three Moments. Luck of the Draw.

“Drawing Straws” has a couple of Star Wars references. Like Pope telling Tom, “Sorry, I forgot your master plan – hijacking the Millennium Falcon out there and fly it to the moon.” While there are some similarities in the premise of Star Wars and Falling Skies, what Falling Skies does in this penultimate episode is remind you of the human spirit. But let’s play Devil’s advocate – what if the Espheni aren’t really evil aliens?

Ray Donovan – “Walk This Way” Top Five Moments. Happy Birthday, Conor.

“Walk This Way” is Liev Schreiber’s first attempt at directing a TV show and outside of one scene, he does a fairly good job. I don’t particularly care for the way Schreiber shoots Ray stumbling down the stairs at the party. But, even though Schreiber succeeds as a director, unfortunately, “Walk This Way” doesn’t really do it for me.

Harvey is open to the idea but Jessica (Gina Torres) isn’t. She enforces the partnership agreement Louis signed, thereby eliminating any chance of Louis being hired by another New York firm. With no clients of his own, could this be the end for Louis?

Tyrant – “Gaslight” Retrospective. The Seeds of Doubt.

As Tyrant’s penultimate episode, “Gaslight” does a wonderful job of setting up next week’s finale. Kudos to Chris Levinson for the story he tells in this episode, which is not only beautifully written but acted. Everyone, from Barry to Yussef to Ziad, in particular, elevates their acting as they all strive to make Jamal believe Tariq is trying to oust him from power. With Molly’s last words to Barry, one can only assume he will think hard about his past and future decisions.

Witches of East End just gets better and better. Without a doubt, “When a Mandragora Loves a Woman” serves as one of the season’s best episodes, hitting a high point with the quality of its storytelling. The continuity is solid, and the emotional intensity from the entire cast of characters is spot on without skipping a beat.

Falling Skies continues along a familiar path – love conquers all. Whether it’s a father trying to save his children, a woman trying to save her man, or even being afraid to give in to love, “’Til Death Do Us Part” shows us that sometimes, love is all you need. Well, that and a way to get to the moon. A few guns wouldn’t hurt either.
