AHS Coven: “The Dead” and “The Sacred Taking”

I think my primary issue [with AHS Coven] is that I don’t care enough about these witches. There are flashes of sympathies here and there, but they flash and burn with the eventual AHS twist (gimmick?), and I am having a hard time investing how I’d like to.

Once Upon A Time: Save Henry

I guess women don’t get to have ten+ seasons of story dedicated strictly to their own development. Because women get to be sex objects, then we get to be mothers, then we get to be invisible.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Repairs

I don’t believe that May will ever revert to the girl she was, at least by Coulson’s description, but we do see a glimpse of hope at the end of the episode when it’s obvious she plays a prank on Fitz. It would be nice to see a little bit more fun from May, although it’s kind of fun to watch her kick butt every week as the show’s resident bad-ass.

Arrow: State vs. Queen

If Oliver is never going to kiss Felicity, I am ready to move on. I need to live vicariously through this chick, so quit stringing me along! Arhg, well, maybe the good doctor Barry can stimulate Oliver to action soon. Let’s hope.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Well

Episode eight of S.H.I.E.L.D. brought us a common Joss Whedon trope, “the rage monster.” In every series that Joss has done, there has always been one relic, one enchanted object that turns our normally heroic characters into anger balls, normally to terrifying, sometimes humorous effect.

Supernatural: Bad Boys

As this week’s episode opened I was not encouraged to see Adam Glass’s name listed as the writer for the week. In the past, I have not been a big fan of his, especially after the crapfest that was “As Time Goes By”. This week I found a few practical inconsistencies that could have been remedied with a little effort.
