Warning – SPOILERS for AMC’s The Walking Dead…

Last week’s The Walking Dead caught us up on what’s been happening at the Hilltop Colony, where original Alexandrians Maggie and Sasha have been hiding out and training the residents to fight for their upcoming battle against Negan and the Saviors. Early on, Sasha and Rosita took off on their own mission to take down Negan. When they got to the Sanctuary, they found that their old friend Eugene had gone from abductee to commander at Negan’s compound, and when they tried to rescue him, he turned tail and ran back, not wanting to leave his new cushy situation. After that, Sasha decided to take on the mission solo, leaving Rosita reluctantly behind so that she can be there for the Alexandrians. The episode ended with Rosita spotting a shadowy figure with a crossbow nearby.

On this week’s episode, 7.15 “Something They Need,” Tara has revealed to Rick the existence of the Oceanside community, which is the group of women whose men were all killed by the Saviors. Rick and crew are making plans now to journey there to get the women to join them in their fight against Negan and the Saviors.

The Magicians 209-08

The Magicians
Season 2 Episode 9: “Lesser Evils”
Directed by Rebecca Johnson
Written by Sera Gamble
Created by Sera Gamble & John McNamara
Based on the novel by Lev Grossman
Starring Jason Ralph, Stella Maeve, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Hale Appleman, Arjun Gupta, Summer Bishil, Rick Worthy, Jade Tailor
Air Date: Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017, 9:00pm

Last time on The Magicians, Julia (Stella Maeve) had no shade and therefore no limits. Quentin (Jason Ralph) barely saved her from Reynard (Mackenzie Astin) because of her lack of judgment. He plopped her in Fillory for Margo to watch her (as if she did not have enough to worry about). Margo tried to reason with the trees to no avail, so Julia blew them up. Margo (Summer Bishil) threw her in a dungeon. Eliot (Hale Appleman) finally woke up after a kick ass speech from Margo to Fen (Brittany Curran). Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) took Q’s body for a spin for a Niffin escape. She was told to free herself from Q for the answers. Penny (Arjun Gupta) declared his love for Kady (Jade Tailor) and sentenced himself to a life of servitude to help her. He went into Q’s head and saw Alice who tried to kill him.

Episode 1.7 “Chapter 7”
Written by Jennifer Yale
Directed by Dennie Gordon
Created by Noah Hawley & Stan Lee
Starring Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart, Jemaine Clement
FX Network
Air date: March 22th, 2017

This is the penultimate episode of Legion’s first amazing season on FX and that honestly just makes me sad. Last week, we were knee deep in Lenny’s version of hell as she had David and all the Summerland gang locked inside David’s head in a version of the Clockworks mental hospital. In there, David (Dan Stevens) seemed content to be there, but girlfriend Syd (Rachel Keller) wanted out and this drew conflict with Lenny (Aubrey Plaza). Kerry (Amber Midthunder) was having separation anxiety from brother Cary (Bill Irwin) and was being stalked by the uber creepy Eye (Mackenzie Gray). Aubrey Plaza was just unbelievable, stealing every scene she’s in, including an unreal impromptu dance number straight out of a Bond opening sequence. And Dan Stevens shows his range like crazy going from wild powerful maniac in episode to somber mental patient who just wants to be in love. Having just watched Stevens dominate the screen as the Beast in Beauty and the Beast, I’m left wondering if there is anything the man cannot do…

TV Review: Into The Badlands 2.1 “Tiger Pushes Mountain”

AMC's Into the Badlands

Into The Badlands
Episode 2.1 “Tiger Pushes Mountain”
Directed by Nick Copus
Written by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar
Starring Daniel Wu, Orla Brady, Sarah Bolger, Aramis Knight, Emily Beecham, Oliver Stark, Madeleine Mantock, Ally Ioannides, Nick Frost, Marton Csokas, Chipo Chung
Air date: Sunday, March 19th, 2017, 10pm

In the late Fall of 2015, AMC debuted Into the Badlands, and it took me all of 5-minutes to be floored by the show. A wild mix of post-apocalyptic steampunk, techno-feudalism and martial arts, Into the Badlands stars Daniel Wu as Sunny, the head clipper for Baron Quinn (Marton Csokas). The Barons control their piece of land, and with guns a thing of the past, young warriors are trained to fight with blades and other weapons. The fight sequences and choreography were some of the best ever for television and a standout for the series. When a strange teen, M.K. (Aramis Knight) who unleashes superhuman power when he bleeds, show up in the Badlands everything changes for Sunny. Sunny begins having conflicts of self; his loyalty torn between his father-like Baron, his pregnant girlfriend Veil (Madeleine Mantock), and the world beyond the Badlands. In the end, a mammoth war broke out, Quinn stabbed Sunny in the back, and Sunny and M.K. attempted to escape, only to fall into a trap.
