Last week was the season 5 premiere of Once Upon A Time, and our Storybrooke residents have a new mystery to solve. They easily (kinda) trick Zelena (Rebecca Mader) into opening a portal to find Emma (Jennifer Morrison), The Dark One. Turns out, she’s in Camelot, seeking Merlin. She gets into a thing with Brave’s Merida (Amy Manson), but her people find her. But then, “Poof!” They are back in Storybrooke, it is 6 weeks later, and nobody remembers a thing. Nobody except, Emma Swan – full on Dark One.

Don’t proceed any further if you have not watched the episode. Spoilers!

TV Review: Brooklyn Nine-Nine 3.2 “The Funeral”

Brooklyn Nine-Nine 302-06

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Season 3 Episode 2: “The Funeral”
Directed by Claire Scanlon
Written by Luke Del Tredici
Created by Daniel J Goor, Michael Schur
Starring Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Stephanie Beatriz, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti, Dirk Blocker, Joel McKinnon Miller, Terry Crews
Air Date: Sunday, October 4th, 2015, 8:30pm

Last week‘s Brooklyn Nine-Nine came back strong for their 3rd season. Holt (Andre Braugher) and the 99th Precinct are still apart, but that doesn’t mean the laughs have to stop. Jake and Amy (Andy Samberg and Melissa Fumero) decided to keep things casual (you know-after the kiss), with Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) almost on to them, until Jake makes up an imaginary gym floozy. Things escalate much further. Wunch (guest star Kyra Sedgwick) delights in the PR position torture of Holt. He ends up in a pigeon costume, yet still dignified. At least he has Gina (Chelsea Peretti). Bill Hader guested last week as the “New Captain,” but quickly died. Does not take a rocket scientist to figure out who “The Funeral” of this week is for. And that is what this episode is about – comedy against a funeral backdrop. Fun!

A couple of spoilers below. Proceed with caution!

The Last Man On Earth
Season 2 Episode 2: “The Boo”
Created by Will Forte, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller
Starring Will Forte, January Jones, Kristen Schaal, Mel Rodriguez, Cleopatra Coleman, Mary Steenburgen, Boris Kodjoe, Jason Sudeikis
Air Date: Sunday, October 4th, 2015, 9:30pm

The Last Man On Earth returned last week for their 2nd season, after being one of the breakout hits during their first. Phil Miller (Will Forte) had been banished by the residents of Tucson, after being the founder in a post-virus world. Phil #2 threatened to kill him if he ever showed his face again. Carol (Kristen Schaal), his ex-wife, decided to leave with him (#1), even though she loved her friends Melissa, Todd, Phil Miller #2, Erica, and Gail (January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, Boris Kodjoe, Cleopatra Coleman, and Mary Steenburgen). And somewhere in space, Phil #1’s brother (Jason Sudeikis) is stuck and alone. Last week, after some fun in the White House, Phil and Carol got into a big fight, and after he accidentally left her at a gas station, he could not remember which one. So he braved death, went to Tucson… and found nothing (except his burnt down house).

Beware of slight spoilers for tonight’s episode below.

Heroes Reborn
Season 1 Episodes 3: “Under The Mask”
Directed by Greg Beeman
Written by Seamus Kevin Fahey
Created by Tim Kring
Starring Jack Coleman, Zachary Levi, Robbie Kay, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Kiki Sukezane, Judith Shekoni, Danika Yarosh, Francesca Eastwood
Air Date: Thursday, October 1st, 2014, 10pm

Heroes Reborn debuted last week after much anticipation. A year after a terrorist attack in Odessa, Texas, the Evolved Humans (EVOs) are chased down and persecuted. The others take pains to hide their power. Tommy (Robbie Kay) can make people (and objects) disappear, Miko (Kiki Sukezane) can step inside a video game and fight like a ninja, and Carlos (Ryan Guzman) doesn’t really have power, but becomes the hero El Vengador after his brother died, leaving the costume empty. Noah Bennet (Jack Coleman) had his mind erased concerning Odessa, but Dark Matters’ Quentin Frady (Henry Zebrowski) stirs enough curiosity to merit investigation. He happily finds The Haitian (Jimmy-Jean Louis), and it is a kill or be killed situation. What???? Luke and Joanne Collins (Zachary Levi and Judith Shekoni) try to kidnap Tommy, but he sends them to his scary place – a cell under Primatech. Molly Walker (Francesca Eastwood) gets conned and kidnapped.

TV Review: Dominion 2.13 “Sine Deo Nihil”
Olympus Athens   |  @   |  


Season 2 Episode 13: “Sine Deo Nihil”
Directed by Deran Sarafian
Written by Vaun Wilmott
Created by Vaun Wilmott
Starring Tom Wisdom, Roxanne McKee, Anthony Head, Carl Beukes, Shivani Ghai, Christopher Egan, Kim Engelbrecht
Air Date: Thursday, October 1st, 2015, 10:00pm

So… what did you think of the finale?

Last week on Dominion, we found out exactly when the Angel War started, way in the past – Christmas 2016, and that Gabriel (Carl Beukes) started it. AND… that Noma (Kim Engelbrecht) was on Gabriel’s side at the time. This is revealed during a knock-em-down, drag-out fight between Gabriel and Michael (Tom Wisdom). Michael is getting his angelic ass kicked by darker than usual Gabriel, until he reveals their bro Lucifer is still around and in Mallory, Alabama. In the aftermath of the Amphora illusions, everyone is self-reflective and for the most part, regretful. Except William Whele (Luke Allen-Gale). He’s a crazy killing monster, that David Whele (Anthony Head) has to put down whilst sobbing. I think he had no choice. David was finally genuinely helping Claire (Roxanne McKee), when William came in, smashed everything, and opened the gate to the 8-Balls. Arika (Shivani Ghai) seems good now, but she really just wants to go home, rescuing a little Vega girl on the way. Claire and Alex (Christopher Egan) flirt in front of Noma, as their impending 8-Ball doom approaches rapidly.

Be sure to check out the Dominion “Herald Angels” music video which matches the light Christmas ditty, “Hark, The Herald Angels Sing” with the kills from season 2. That video is below.
