Bones to Pick

The Outpost
Season 1 Episode 5

This show is pretty surprising. They aren't doing anything you would expect in a show like this. Of course it means that they are going to need other things to deal with once they burn through these storylines. Luckily they still have the Plaguelings, Greyskins, Calypsum & the Prime Order once they deal with Talon & her vengeance story arc. Hopefully they keep it going. 

They killed the old man that I thought was going to be her mentor. Nope, he's dead. Now the marshal knows she's a black blood. He & Garrett saw the demon. What a mess. And it turns out that she's the royal princess! And the Captain let his own daughter be murdered by the Prime Order to protect her!? Jesus Christ, and that's why the wife killed herself. That is some messed up stuff. 

This show is coming up with some interesting stuff. Of course the marshal did kill that servant girl. Oops.

Flogg's Revenge

The New Adventures of He-Man
Season 1 Episode 64

I can't believe the Galactic Guardians are just sitting down to a victory dinner with these 2 idiots. They threatened to destroy Primus. He-Man should be arresting them.

At least we got to see them using their action features again. Optikk had a few lines, more than Kayo. Which is just weird. I don't like how Spinwit was jumping up & spinning without his wings & without his helmet. They shouldn't have been helmet-less on this show. I don't know why they were always doing that on this cartoon.

Then He-Man barely reacted to the fact that those 2 weirdos had a private underground prison/zoo. He should have asked why those beings were being imprisoned there. These two dudes are clearly bad guys, but He-Man is just letting them get away with this. This storyline is really terrible. They should have used the Mytes & Gleanons to showcase the new variants instead of these obvious space villains.

Strange Bedfellows

The Outpost
Season 1 Episode 4

I thought the worm was growing his Calypsum somewhere around a bird's nest; instead someone is mailing it to him? That seems dumb. 

Talon really needs to do something about the Laquiree, it keeps killing people, & now it might kill her. She totally wants to bang the captain, that wasn't sparring. I don't care what she says.

That captain's daughter is up to something. Talon got stabbed again! The Laquirie stabbed her. She was not confident enough I guess.

The Games

The New Adventures of He-Man
Season 1 Episode 63

This episode was pretty good; once again they are using their action features. I can't believe though that Kayo still barely has any lines but they are showing him shooting those missiles, 3 times in this episode. And Hook Em Flogg was using his harpoon, even Laserrang Flipshot. Hydron is such a weird person to have the Spin Fist. It would be better if he was in the water & used it to propel himself or to create a whirlpool. They should have given it to Kayo.

Wait, so the two sentient death stars, are actually 2 short scientist-type guys? That was bizarre. Really disappointing about that. They could have at least been aliens instead of being human. Just lame.


The Mistress and the Worm

The Outpost
Season 1 Episode 3

This show is turning out to be pretty good. We keep learning more about the black bloods & I like that the gate marshal is really smart & has figured out a lot of things. The brewer is annoying. They made him seem retarded in the 1st episode, but he clearly isn't. So I expect them to keep making him more normal as the show goes on. He's still going to be annoying though as he's already been friendzoned.

I'm not sure what's up with the princess, but she seems like she's going to cause trouble. I was surprised that the captain of the guard enlisted Janzo to help him find a Plagueling. And Janzo seemed to notice that the wench had a circular bracelet which might be infected with Plagueling eggs? Is that how they get infected with the throat snake?

How has nobody seen that demon thing?

The Lexicon

Season1 Episode 6

A lot of secrets were revealed in this episode. Minas now knows that mercenary has the lexicon & that the oracle is a liar. Then queen Medea figured out from Lycos that the uncle was plotting against Aegeus. And she knew that the priest guy was involved. The olive tree thing was weird, but she knew what he meant.

At least he had a sex dream about Ariadne & then he was about to dream about banging the oracle but like a loser, she started kissing the oracle. What a moron. Then he talked that peon girl into banging him & stopped before he even kissed her. This kid is such a loser. 

They Reminisce Over You

Luke Cage
Season 2 Episode 13

What a mess of an episode, it mostly set up the next season, which is the only thing that saved this episode but not by much. Really, this episode made it very clear what the problem is, but the show has been avoiding it. When the barber shop kid called Luke a crime boss, he avoided placing the blame on who is really responsible, the people of Harlem. They are the ones buying guns & drugs from all these crime families. That’s who is responsible. All Luke Cage did with the Carbones was tell them to stay out of his territory. 

I’m so glad Mariah is dead, that took forever, and I am super annoyed that Bushmaster is still alive & got away with it. It’s annoying that Tilda helped him; he decapitated people & was a crime lord just like Mariah. Tilda is a hypocrite.

I loved that he told Claire to leave. She’s so annoying. They did something with the lighting on Misty this episode, but I can look at that woman all day long.

At least he's wearing a yellow suit, it's not what I want but it's better than yellow lining in a Carhartt hoodie.

This whole season is the result of all the girl writers making the female characters more important than the damn character the show is named for.
