TV Review: Doctor Who 10.8 “The Lie Of The Land”
Dr. Geek, Ph.D.   |  

Doctor Who 10.8 The Lie Of The Land BBC Simon Ridgway/Stuart Manning

Doctor Who
Season 10, Episode 8 “The Lie Of The Land”
Directed by Wayne Yip
Written by Toby Whithouse
Starring Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie, Matt Lucas, Michelle Gomez
BBC America
Air date: June 3, 2017

Ever since the dawn of modern mass media, there has been this concern that media has a meta-textual element designed to mislead the public. Call it subliminal advertising or even the Discordian fnord, but there is always this notion that the newspapers, the TV, the Internet that people so willingly and gleefully consume is actually putting us to sleep somehow. Though it informs us, that very act also allows it to control us. It creates a method for the direct manipulation of the human psyche, and since mass media systems make the replication of controlling information so easy, the many can be controlled by the very few.

This dystopian idea of control through mass media is what Doctor Who examines with Episode 10.8 “The Lie Of The Land.” Having established last week that a new alien species (the Monks) has arrived on Earth that behave something like a shadowy, Illuminati-like group, the gimmick of “The Pyramid At The End Of The World” was the setup for a choice. Bill (Pearl Mackie) must pick the uncertain future of life on Earth with the Monks, or let the Doctor die. She chooses the former, and now we see what life with the Monks looks like.

Last week on Gotham, Penguin and Nygma (Robin Lord Taylor, Cory Michael Smith) called a truce to help each other escape. Killing each other could wait. Selina (Camren Bicondova) tried to kill Bruce 2 (David Mazouz), but he knocked her out right after she told Alfred (Sean Pertwee) the truth. Then Bruce 2 knocked him out. Lee (Morena Baccharin) blamed herself for Mario’s death after a nightmare and a visit to the Mad Hatter (Benedict Samuel). She stole the virus and then injected herself. The real Bruce put away his bad memories and felt nothing. Barnes (Michael Chiklis) almost killed Jim (Ben McKenzie), but he was saved by the GCPD. Jim and Bullock (Donal Logue) questioned Kathryn (Leslie Hendrix) who gave away nothing, even after Alfred put a knife through her hand. She ordered Barnes to save her so he cut off her head in response.

Movie Review: Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman Header Image

Wonder Woman
Director: Patty Jenkins
Screenplay: Geoff Johns, Allan Heinberg
Cast: Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya
Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures
Release date: June 2, 2017

Given that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad received such poor reviews (including from me), it’s easy to believe that WB could not put out anything remotely entertaining within the DCEU. Their constant meddling and the films’ lack of care certainly proved that they were not up to the task of competing with their rivals at Marvel Studios. But then came Wonder Woman. And this isn’t just about her own standalone film, which opens this weekend — we’ll get to that later — this is about her literally carrying the weight of the DCEU on her shoulders. For it was her who saved Batman v Superman from being a complete abomination. Her wit, her mystery, her power, and her inspiration that carried on throughout that film that had many asking when is Wonder Woman going to get her own feature.

Now that time has come. After years of standing on comic book shelves, the character has finally gotten her own film, simply titled Wonder Woman. Her own story to tell, with no assistance from the Dark Knight or the Man of Steel. Through stunning grace, incredible power, and mighty courage, not only is Wonder Woman what a superhero film should be, it showcases an empowering figure who should be an inspiration to anyone, but most importantly to females who have waited for a character they could look up to.

House of Cards
Season 5 Episode 1: “Chapter 53

Created by Beau Willimon
Starring Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Paul Sparks, Joel Kinnaman, Neve Campbell, Boris McGiver, Jayne Atkinson, Damian Young
Netflix
Air Date: Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Somewhere over the past year the line between television drama and reality blurred. There is a President who talks down to people, commit heinous acts of violence and depravity, we have issues with the Russians, and we live in a perpetual state of fear from terrorist cells worldwide… quick, am I talking about America 2017 or Season 4 of House of Cards? A show that cuts this close to reality is not going to be shy with the current scope of American politics, and I expect this will be a unique and interesting season for Netflix’s award winning political thriller. I wait with baited breath to see how far the writers will push the boundaries.

Last week on Prison Break, we were filled in on some of the Poseidon/Michael (Mark Feuerstein, Wentworth Miller) story through a flashback. Michael texted Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies) to give her an update and instantly knew it wasn’t her. Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) told his story to Michael, which happened to be their ticket out of there, courtesy of an Abruzzi. They got out of that sticky situation with the help of C-Note and Sheba (Rockmond Dunbar, Inbar Lavi). Jacob set them up. Michael was reunited with his son, but then a shot rang out. Lincoln was the victim of an Abruzzi drive-by.
