Moon Zero Two (1969): a recap (part 9 of 10)

When we last left Bill and Clementine, Lithuania suffered a major setback in their plot to annex the Moon, but it left the Moon Bug shot to hell. Bill opted to use the “bugdozer” instead, but it only has enough charge for a 150-mile trip, and it’s 200 miles to Farside Five. Fortunately, the bugdozer is built to go over mountains, so it’s time to find a shortcut. The pair head out...

How to Get Away with Murder: Face/Off

Previously on How to Get Away with Murder: Frank is back! He tried to make amends with Annalise, but she wasn't having it. He then offered to kill himself in front of her. Annalise is fine with it, which I'm sure wasn't the reaction Frank was hoping for. Michaela hates her mom. Naturally, Asher arranged for them to get together...

Jane the Virgin: Family Ties

Jane is no longer a virgin! Well, that's sort of old news compared to what's been going on with everyone else. New career changes: Rogelio is trying to become famous enough for a CW show which shouldn't be too hard since no one on the CW is truly famous...

The Exorcist: Flying Nuns and Super Priests

We open with Tomas conducting mass. St Anthony's looks spruced up, so maybe not all of Maria Walter's devil-money went for the search. There's a big poster of Casey. Uh-oh. Is this a memorial? Probably not, unless we're going the possessed zombie route...

The Exorcist: Mama's back

Young Regan MacNeil and her mom the movie star are on a talk show. We can tell it's the '70's by Regan's groovy shag haircut. Young Regan looks like Linda Blair, and Chris looks nothing at all like Sharon Gless, but a lot like Ellen Burstyn...

10 great double feature ideas

Since the advent of home video and later the internet, people can now have double features of all kinds in their own homes. Here now (in no particular order) are 10 great double features you can have at home and why I find them ideal.

Jane the Virgin: Losin' it (finally!)

I like that this episode doesn't bother with the Latin Lover Narrator flashback to Jane's childhood and how it relates thematically to her present day problems. She and Michael finally got the go-ahead to have sex and they're going to do it, dammit!

Supergirl: Always bet on green

When last week’s previews revealed the main plot of this episode would be an “underground alien fight club”, I must admit it looked like a pretty bland concept for an episode. And guess what? It actually is a pretty bland hour of TV, and another one of those unfortunate Supergirl episodes where...

Doctor Strange (2016): Fun, but forgettable

Considering their earlier efforts to downplay or explain away any and all “supernatural” characters and occurrences in the MCU as simply “aliens” or “really advanced science”, I do get the impression that Marvel made this movie less because they wanted to than because the fans wanted them to.
