Now the circle of those in the know Dash and his partnership with Detective Vega (Meagan Good) is growing. Already Akeela (Li Jun Li) and Wally (Daniel London) are in. With Agatha (Laura Regan) seeing visions of the siblings back in the pre-crime milkbath, who knows where Blake’s loyalties will inevitably lie.

Supergirl 105 Header

Episode 1.5 “How Does She Do It?”
Directed by Thor Freudenthal
Written by Yahlin Chang, Ted Sullivan
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Ali Adler
Starring Melissa Benoist, Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, Mehcad Brooks, David Harewood, Jeremy Jordan, Helen Slater, Dean Cain, Peter Facinelli, Chris Vance
Air date: Monday, November 23rd, 2015, 8:00pm ET

Last week’s Supergirl was switched with this week’s, in light of the Paris attacks, which was considerate. However, it gave us a few spoilers, but not any horribly crucial ones. The main one is that James Olsen and Lucy Lane (Mechad Brooks and Jenna Dewan-Tatum) were already back together in this episode, to the disappointment of Kara (Melissa Benoist) and James. So “Livewire” focused on one of Cat’s (Calista Flockhart) disgruntled employess, who got demoted to weather duty, and then struck by lightning via a Supergirl conduit. It was also the Thanksgiving episode which found foster mom Helen Slater (I don’t know why emphasizing foster mom bothered me), Alex (Chyler Leigh), Kara, and Winn (Jeremy Jordan) at a tense family dinner. It ends up okay though, with the exception of the reveal that Hank Henshaw (David Harewood) was involved in Alex’s dad’s disappearance.

Doctor Who TARDISblend Banner

In Doctor Who Episode 9.10, an old friend, Rigsy aka “Local Knowledge” (Jovian Wade), calls on the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and companion Clara Oswald (Jenna Coleman) for some help, when an animated tattoo counting down appears on the back of his neck. The alien ink leads the trio to a concealed refugee locale for extra terrestrials hiding on Earth, where they meet an old friend. But in the process, the situation is far more dire, and will call on one of our heroes to “Face The Raven”…

During TARDISblend 95, we are joined by guest Andy Sorcini of Geeks Of Doom’s The Drill Down, and we discuss a tragic conclusion for one of our Doctor Who characters, and the beginning of a mysterious journey for the Doctor.

All this and more on the latest TARDISblend podcast!

Starring Peter Capaldi, Jenna Coleman, Joivan Wade, Maisie Williams
BBC America
Air date: Saturday, November 21, 2015

WARNING: SPOILERS for Seasons 8 & 9 of Doctor Who

This week on Doctor Who, Episode 9.10 “Face The Raven,” we finally start to see the end of the season in the distance. To paraphrase Sir Winston Churchill, we can say that now is not the end, but it is, in one sense, the end of the beginning and, in another, the beginning of the end. Both concern one piece of business that must be dealt with: the departure of Clara Oswald, the Impossible Girl. One actress sets that end in motion, and another brings it to its conclusion. Along the way, both discover that while they aspire to be with the Doctor or like the Doctor, there is price to pay whenever someone who is not the Doctor acts as the Doctor does. That’s a powerful idea, but it gets lost in an episode that was merely good and not great.

The Last Man On Earth
Season 2 Episode 8: “No Bull”
Directed by Payman Benz
Written by Liz Cackowski
Created by Will Forte, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller
Starring Will Forte, January Jones, Kristen Schaal, Mel Rodriguez, Cleopatra Coleman, Mary Steenburgen, Boris Kodjoe
Air Date: Sunday, November 15, 2015, 9:30pm

Last week on The Last Man On Earth, Tandy (Will Forte) played the sympathy card up and down and over the top, over his not-so-black eye, courtesy of Phil (Boris Kodjoe). Phil refuses to go in the stocks so everyone is mad at him. He’s “almost worse than Tandy.” Tandy starts to feel bad for Phil (even though he’s still a jerk to him), after seeing him a lonely mess around the presents he made for the baby. He got trashed and almost drowned, lying on the beach. Tandy saved him by slowly dragging him to safety and into the stocks. Carol (Kristen Schaal) is sad about not having a baby. Todd (Mel Rodriguez) is mad at Melissa (January Jones) for not telling him she once considered having a baby… with Tandy.

Into the Badlands, Season 1, Episode 2 review

Into The Badlands
Episode 1.2 “Fist Like a Bullet”
Directed by David Dobkin
Written by Alfred Gough, Miles Millar
Starring Gabe Begneaud, Nazeema Bartek, Daniel Wu, Ruby Lou Smith, Aramis Knight, Ally Ioannides, Stephen Lang, Emily Beecham, Morgan Benoit, Marton Csokas, Sarah Bolger, Madeleine Mantock, Oliver Stark
Air date: Sunday, November 22, 2015, 10pm

In our first introduction to AMC’s new show Into the Badlands, we meet Sunny (Daniel Wu) as he stumbles upon some nomads in the woods. After one of the most intense, bone-crunching fights you’ll ever watch, Sunny lays waste to all 10, including 9 at once. Sunny is a Clipper, a warrior trained like the knights/samurai of old to protect the land and resources of the Baron (Martin Csokas). It’s all very 10th grade global history, with a ultra cool modern twist. After the initial crazy fight, Sunny brings back a young boy, M.K. (Aramis Knight) to the Fort. M.K. has a pendant that is similar one Sunny possesses, one that echoes back to a land and time before the Barons, and beyond the Badlands. Baron Quinn trusts Sunny like a son, but that relationship may become complicated as Sunny is considering leaving with his pregnant girlfriend Veil (Madeleine Mantock).

Warning – SPOILERS for The Walking Dead Season 6…

Seriously……… SPOILERS……

Back in the third episode of Season 6 of The Walking Dead, 6.3 “Thank You”, audiences were shocked and dismayed by the very real possibility that Glenn is dead. Since then, every episode has been a wait to see if Glenn was actually killed or if he managed to somehow survive. As the weeks passed, it seemed more and more like Glenn is gone, and last week, his pregnant wife, Maggie, even seemed to be coming to terms with the loss after abandoning her plans to go out and look for him.

And this week, we FINALLY find out WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO GLENN!!!!!!!!

Let’s get the important part out of the way:


Oh man, what we’ve been through to get to this point. The torment!

But, Glenn’s alive and he’s on his way back home to the Alexandria Safe Zone.

Here’s what happened…

Starring Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Stephanie Beatriz, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti, Dirk Blocker, Joel McKinnon Miller, Terry Crews

Thanksgiving is here on Brooklyn Nine-Nine! Charles (Jo Lo Truglio) comes in dressed like a turkey named Tommy Gobbler (shout out to Brooklyn’s P.S. 321). The episode is littered with “thanks” in the funniest way possible. The Internet is down which means everyone has to do a ton of paperwork all day, making the precinct hectic. But the biggest responsibility belongs to Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), who needs to take care of a very pregnant Mrs. Jeffers, until Terry and Diaz (Terry Crews and Stephanie Beatriz) get back from interviewing someone at Rikers. His biggest job will be to keep Captain Holt away from her. He is always very weird around her like “those judgmental trees from Lord of the Rings.”

Some spoilers below.
