Homeland: The morning after

This week on Homeland, Saul makes Brett an offer he can’t refuse, and then Brett refuses. Carrie finds a new white knight who has some baggage, because doesn’t everyone? And David Wellington is once again weaselly. Previously on Homeland,…

Homeland: Carrie's so-called life

Once upon a time, the opening credit sequence incorporated real world footage and voices. Obama might not have been the president of Homelandia, but we saw his image and heard him in the montage; Reagan and (Bill) Clinton too. It…

Homeland: Everybody hates Elizabeth!

Previously on Homeland: Dar Adal, General McClendon, Brett (Not Alex Jones) O’Keefe, Black Hat Guy, and the rest were involved in shenanigans up to and including false flag bombings and murder in an attempt to keep Elizabeth Keane, a…

Riverdale: Confirm or deny

Apologies for the late recap everyone, but this episode of Riverdale was a bit of a filler one that’s leading up to much more interesting episode next week. This week focuses on Veronica and the Lodge family and all their…

Riverdale: South Side Story

We’re finally back to our favorite small town where big, implausible things happen! Welcome back to Riverdale, everyone! The post-Christmas revelry has worn off and now we’re ready to get back to the dark, twisty, angst-y stuff. And who better…

Star Trek: Voyager “Alice”

My recaps of bad Star Trek: Voyager episodes continue with season six’s “Alice”, one of those utterly predictable Voyager episodes that foreshadows its plot so heavily that by two minutes in, we already know exactly how the whole damn plot…

Star Trek "Dagger of the Mind"

In the franchise’s entire 51-year history, there’s only been one Star Trek episode of any of the six series that’s been holiday-themed. That episode was the original series’ “Catspaw”, which was the first episode filmed for the show’s second season,…

Riverdale: Unwrapping the hood

Despite the Black Hood’s earlier threat that the “reckoning” is upon Riverdale, the town seems to proceeding with the usual amount of holiday drama, specifically surrounding money. Archie and his dad are selling Christmas trees in the parking lot of…

Riverdale: Stripping it all away

You know what the best thing to do is when there’s a deranged serial killer running loose in your town? Bangin’. Like, lots of it. According to Jughead, Archie and Veronica are engaging in “carnal defiance” and having lots of…

Star Trek: Voyager "Elogium"

Being in the middle of a long mid-season break before Star Trek: Discovery returns, I figured what better time to recap episodes of previous Star Trek shows to fill the void? Like, say, Voyager? I won’t lie; the news…

Riverdale: Saints, sinners, and stalkers

This episode breaks from our usual faux-lisophical introductory narrations from Jughead and opens up with a new narrator reading from scroll of text announcing that we will be witness to three “twisted” tales connected to the Black Hood murders. These…

Riverdale: Go Greased Lightning!

According to Jughead, everyone is wearing a mask—metaphorically speaking, of course. The Black Hood just happens to wear his literally and he’s pretty happy with it. This stands in sharp contrast with Betty’s metaphorical mask, which is quickly unraveling and…
