Spoilers, spoilers, spoilers, spoilers, spoilers!

Last week on Vikings 3.5 “The Usurper,” the warriors returned to Kattegat after a “successful” battle for Mercia. The discovery of Siggy’s death was too much for Rollo (Clive Standen), who was eaten with regret and grief. He’s back to self-destruction. Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) confronts Kalf (Ben Robson), with no results. Even Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) doesn’t help her. Aethelwulf (Moe Dunford) destroys the viking village in Wessex, slaughtering even the children. And King Ecbert (Linus Roache) was the puppetmaster the entire time. Ragnar… he told you he was corrupt. You should have listened.

Supernatural Season 10 Poster

Supernatural
Season 10 Episode 16: “Paint It Black”
Created by Eric Kripke
Directed by John F. Showalter
Starring Jensen Ackles, Jared Padelecki, Misha Collins, and Mark Sheppard
The CW
Air Date: Wednesday, March 25th, 2015, 9:00pm

Last week on Supernatural 10.15 “The Things They Carried”, Sam and Dean (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) investigated a parasite that caused its victim to be so thirsty, gallons and gallons of water weren’t enough, so it had to resort to blood. Cole (I-made-it-my-life’s-mission-to-kill-Dean-Winchester) returned to help the boys since the infected was a pal.

The brothers are just trying to think job to job…well Dean is anyway. He’s trying to find a way to live with the Mark of Cain, to not think about what it means for his future. It’s Sam’s turn to worry and research, and no matter how much Dean tells him to forget about it, Sam can’t stop. He never could. If it was Sam with the mark, Dean and all of us know, he’d be fighting the same fight.

“This is not how I expected it to end, the story. I’m not afraid of leaving the world. I don’t know why, but I’m not. It’s better than falling down in the street, like a drunk, and waiting for some stranger to pass by.”

Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?” not only gives us one of the best titled episodes of The Americans, but also the closest thing we’ve gotten to a bottle episode on the show.

Spoilers below.

Comic Review: Big Hard Sex Criminals, Volume 1 Hardcover

Big Hard Sex Criminals review
Big Hard Sex Criminals, Volume 1 Hardcover
Written by Matt Fraction
Art by Chip Zdarsky
Cover by Chip Zdarsky
Image Comics
Release Date: March 25, 2015
Cover Price: $39.99

Yeah, you read that correctly. Big Hard Sex Criminals, Volume 1 is the title of this particular literary work. And make no mistake, it’s all about sex and criminal activity. No, that’s not correct. It contains both of those, but it’s about far more than that. It’s about self discovery and growth, too. And not in the dirty ways, you pervert! If you want to know more (and you do), you’ll have to continue reading to see how I got down and dirty with this comic. I really can’t stop myself, I swear.

SXSW 2015 Movie Review: Knock Knock, It’s Tig Notaro

SXSW 2015 Movie Review Knock Knock, It’s Tig Notaro

Knock Knock, It’s Tig Notaro
Director: Michael LaHaie, Christopher Wilcha
Starring: Tig Notaro, Jon Dore
Documentary
Release date: March 17, 2015 (SXSW)

In Knock Knock, It’s Tig Notaro, comedian Tig Notaro (In A World) sets out on a cross-country road trip, bringing her singular style of comedy to the living rooms, barns, back yards, and trailers of her most devoted fans. Like any road trip, all the jokes are inside jokes, the stories are better when you’re there, and basically you just have to experience it.

Jon Dore (Funny As Hell) joins Tig on the road as her show opener for audiences that are rarely over 15 people. They make comedy happen in the places where people really live, without stage lights (unless tractor headlights count), standing on homemade stages or no stages at all, in living room lounges, with the audience at arm’s length. Notaro and Dore, together with directors Michael LaHaie and Christopher Wilcha, capture the mortifying vulnerability of live performance. It’s magnified in the small settings, but they literally open the front door and walk right in.

SXSW 2015 Movie Review: GTFO: The Movie
Emilia Fuentes   |  

GTFO: The Movie title SXSW Review

GTFO: The Movie
Director: Shannon Sun-Higginson
Official Website
Release date: March 15, 2015 (SXSW)

Almost half of all gamers are women; yet, female gamers are disproportionately subject to harassment and abuse. GTFO: The Movie seeks to investigate misogyny in video game culture and questions the future of this 20 billion dollar industry.

Shannon Sun-Higginson’s documentary is alarming, but it is far from alarmist. The film opens with a long clip of found footage from the now infamous Cross Assault incident of 2012. Sun-Higginson lingers with the footage and it’s painful to watch. A single female gamer, attempting to compete in a Tekken competition, is emotionally and psychologically destroyed by her male teammates and team captain. The main perpetrator of the abuse is her own team captain, but he is spurred on by an invisible and relentless online community spewing lewd and abusive suggestions. The female gamer loses focus and the game itself is forgotten, completely overshadowed by the mens’ harassing behavior. The message is clear.

DVD Review: MST3K: Volume XXXII

DVD Review: MST3K: Volume XXXII

MST3K: Volume XXXII
DVD
Not Rated | 480 Minutes
Shout! Factory
Release Date: March 24, 2015

In the not-too-distant future…

In the 32nd collection of episodes from the cult comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000, Joel Hodgson, Michael J. Nelson, Tom Servo, and Crow T. Robot endure unspeakable cinematic horrors. This volume includes a space drama, a sword and sandals epic, a ’50s spy film, and a failed TV pilot about an airport.

Yes, like Agent for H.A.R.M. and Code Name: Diamondhead, San Francisco International was developed as a pilot to a TV series that – shockingly – didn’t get picked up. In addition to SFI, there’s Space Travelers, Hercules, and Radar Secret Service.

MST3K: Volume XXXII features four episodes from the Comedy Central era, two with Joel Hodgson as host and two with Mike Nelson. It’s a solid, eclectic mix of episodes spanning seasons four, five, and six. Continue reading for detailed synopses of each episode!
