Squid Game: What Could Season 2 Look Like?

This Squid Game article contains MAJOR spoilers. Squid Game is one of the best original series to come to Netflix in a long time. The story of a deadly competition in which 456 people try to win ₩45.6billion ($39 million) in a series of life-or-death children’s games, the class parable is as devastating to watch as it is addicting and, should it do well, there’s a chance Netflix could greenlight another season of the Korean drama. While there has been no official word yet on if a second season will happen, given Netflix’s growing presence and investment in Korea, it’s…

Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Series Finale Makes Up for Season 8

This article contains spoilers for BROOKLYN NINE-NINE season 8 episodes 9 and 10. There reaches a point where every sitcom needs to say goodbye. While many fans would be content to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine play the hits forever — watch Jake uncover a triple cross yet again, cringe when Boyle drops another unintentional innuendo, laugh when Holt robotically delivers the newest slang term — at some point, cast and crew run out of creative steam and must move on. Brooklyn Nine-Nine attempted to stretch itself in Season 8, admirable for a series this far into its run itself, and especially…

The Mandalorian Season 3: Bo-Katan’s Darksaber Story Is Far From Over

The Mandalorian season 3 might be a ways away, with shooting reportedly set to begin later this year, but that’s not stopped fans from speculating what happened next after the second season’s cliffhanger. Grogu might have left with Luke Skywalker in the season 2 finale, possibly bringing the show’s Jedi mystery to a close, but Din Djarin, Bo-Katan, and their friends still have an Imperial remnant to take down. Oh, and we can’t forget the Mandalorian drama between Bo-Katan (Katee Sackhoff) and Din (Pedro Pascal) that was just beginning to simmer before Luke showed up to take down the dark…

What We Do in the Shadows Season 3 Episode 4 Review: The Casino

This What We Do in the Shadows review contains spoilers. What We Do in the Shadows Season 3 Episode 4 A coastal resort destination like Atlantic City might not seem the wisest place for a vampire to vacation, but it pays off in “The Casino.” The Staten Island vampires may be shirking their duties on the Vampiric Council, but What We Do in the Shadows  season 3 episode 4 benefits from the change in scenery. This is especially shattering for Nandor (Kayvan Novak), who learns during this episode that the world is not only round, but also not held up…

Archer Season 12: Casey Willis On Sterling And Cyril’s Emotional Breakthrough

This article contains spoilers for Archer season 12 episode 5. Archer has a fascinating relationship with change. Major elements like the show’s genre have transformed, but a constant through the years are the characters and their relationships with one another. The series has made it clear that these character dynamics are quite toxic in many ways, some of which have left the characters looking for ways to grow. The most recent seasons have prioritized the cause and effect nature of Archer waking up from his coma and returning to work, which has left everyone feeling very raw and vulnerable, including…

Supergirl’s Final Season Soars When Focused on Character

This SUPERGIRL article contains spoilers for Season 6, Episode 11, “Mxy in the Middle.” Supergirl Season 6 Episode 11 Mr. Mxyzptlk makes his triumphant return, and not a moment too soon. He sings, he dances, he makes Patrick Swayze references, and Supergirl distracts a giant cat the same way you distract a regular cat – with her lazer vision, of course. It’s all good fun on a light and lovely episode of Supergirl that serves as a reminder of why this show was seen as a breath of optimistic fresh air years before Ted Lasso made it cool and Emmy-worthy. Mxy is…

Money Heist: How Season 5 Changed the Series Forever

This Money Heist article contains MAJOR spoilers for Season 5. The long-awaited final season of Netflix’s most popular foreign language series Money Heist blew up everything we though we knew about the show. Every fan has been eagerly waiting to see Gandia (José Manuel Poga) get his just desserts for his cold-blooded killing of Nairobi (Alba Flores) last season. Season 4 ended with the gang chanting “For Nairobi!” at the end, a rallying cry for revenge. But the price of Gandia’s death was way too high. It cost the life of the show’s leading character, Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó), taking Money…

Lucifer Season 6 Episode 10 Review: Partners ‘Til the End

This Lucifer review contains spoilers. Lucifer Season 6 Episode 10 “I’m an angel, remember? I’ll see you on the other side.” There are endless avenues the Lucifer writing team could have taken with the series finale “Partners ‘Til the End,” but fans of the Netflix fantasy show are treated to an emotionally charged ride that finally places the characters exactly where they need to be whether in Heaven, Hell, or here on earth. Though the episode clearly centers on the circumstances behind Lucifer’s disappearance and the impact it eventually has on Chloe and Rory, all the characters receive wonderful, albeit…

Lucifer Season 6 Episode 9 Review: Goodbye, Lucifer

This Lucifer review contains spoilers. Lucifer Season 6 Episode 9 “Where’s a goddamn celestial when you need one.” In its series’ penultimate episode, “Goodbye, Lucifer,” Lucifer presents a powerful examination of the fate vs free will debate as Lucifer does his best to avoid abandoning Chloe and their unborn daughter Rory. Time travel, time loops, body jumping, end-of-the-world apocalypse – it’s all here as the series eschews its traditional witty one-liners for some resolute reflection in a moment of existential crisis. It doesn’t get much better than this. There’s a certain irony in the fact that Lucifer is more concerned…

The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 4 Review: Rendition

This The Walking Dead review contains spoilers. The Walking Dead Season 11 Episode 4 Has anyone on The Walking Dead been through as much as Daryl Dixon? He’s been tortured several times at this point, including the most insidious torture method ever devised by Negan. He’s been injured in pretty much every possible way someone can be injured. His motorcycles have long since stopped running. His friends won’t let him retreat into the woods like the smelly hermit he longs to be. The only love affair he’s had on the show has ended in ambivalent tragedy. To be fair, he’s…

The Walking Dead Season 11: Leah Twist Explained

This The Walking Dead feature contains spoilers. One of the issues with the collection of bonus bottle episodes rolled out at the end of Season 10 of The Walking Dead is that they were constructed in such a way that they didn’t especially matter to the overall narrative. Sure, they were fun. They had some great character moments to help explain just how our survivors ended up the people they are, and what sort of adventures they might have been up to in between seasons, but they haven’t exactly carried a lot of narrative weight this far in season 11.…

Rick and Morty Season 6: What to Expect

There aren’t many guarantees in life. Thankfully, one of them is that we will be getting new episodes of Rick and Morty on Adult Swim … many more new episodes in fact! You may recall that way back in 2018, Adult Swim cut a deal with Rick and Morty creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon to produce a staggering 70 additional  episodes of the show. The deal came before season 4 and since then Rick and Morty has generated 20 episodes, leaving fans with (at least) 50 more to look forward to.  Each season of Rick and Morty thus far…

Lucifer Season 6 Episode 8 Review: Save the Devil, Save the World

This Lucifer review contains spoilers. Lucifer Season 6 Episode 8 “This is the worst idea the doctor has ever had.” It’s the rare episode of Lucifer that moves outside its comfort zone of dead bodies, shady suspects, and puzzling evidence, but “Save the Devil, Save the World” does just that as it hones in on a much bigger problem. The end of the world appears nigh, and no one knows why.  While the introspective offering ventures into clip-show territory, the past scenes never feel obtrusive, nor do they stand in the way of fresh, new material. It’s fascinating to learn…

Evil Season 2 Brings a Case Worthy of The X-Files

This Evil review contains spoilers. Evil Season 2 Episode 9 One of the first reports of unexplained aerial phenomenon comes from The Bible, when Ezekiel saw the wheel. It was redacted in the later editions, but we now know he probably just saw a weather balloon. Just like the Man in Black played by Jesse Ventura on The X-Files proved that President James Earl Carter, Jr., saw the planet Venus when he reported strange things in the sky. Evil season 2, episode 9, “U Is for U.F.O.,” gets to the bottom of these conflicting reports. After all, the unidentified object…

Lucifer Season 6 Episode 7 Review: My Best Fiend’s Wedding

This Lucifer review contains spoilers. Lucifer Season 6 Episode 7 “The God thing is on hold for right now.” Toxic masculinity, police misconduct, same sex wedding. As Adam says, “wokeness is hard,” but it’s also fair to say that Lucifer risks going a bit overboard as a social justice warrior in its final days. But any perceived heavy handedness floats away when Eve walks down the aisle toward her beautiful, black gowned partner Mazikeen, and “My Best Fiend’s Wedding” reminds us what makes this series so special. It’s the power of love amidst the vagaries of the human condition, and…

Lucifer Season 6 Episode 6 Review: A Lot Dirtier Than That

This Lucifer review contains spoilers. Lucifer Season 6 Episode 6 “You may have just met me, but I’ve known you my whole life.” Some might say that “A Lot Dirtier Than That” comes across far too heavy handed in making its arguments about racial injustices involving the police, but sometimes it takes a sledge hammer to get people’s attention. Lucifer rarely engages in social commentary, but here it’s Amenadiel’s second brush with a bigoted detective that forces the angel to reevaluate his role as a black man working in law enforcement and puts on open display the challenges facing both…

Lucifer Season 6 Ending Explained

This article contains Lucifer Season 6 spoilers. No Netflix resurrections this time, as Lucifer has departed this mortal realm after six terrific seasons. The show’s fans managed to rescue it from cancellation once, and the streaming service stepped up to keep the party going at Lux several times, but we’ve had to say goodbye to Lucifer, Chloe and the rest of our faves for good now. There was a lot going on in the final season, as you might have expected before you even hit play on the first installment. There were certainly plenty of loose ends to tie up…

My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 23 Review: Tenko Shimura: Origin

This My Hero Academia review contains spoilers for Season 5, Episode 23. “You’re right. I just want to destroy.” There’s an inherent risk of ruining the magic that surrounds certain characters by answering all of the questions that contextualize them—especially when it comes to villains—but My Hero Academia has not only avoided this particular story struggle, but excelled in the territory and turned the challenge into some of the show’s most powerful episodes. They’re the perfect amount of dark and haunting without feeling exploitative or off the mark from what the series should represent.  There is no shortage of villains…
