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
AMC
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.

Damien 110-05

Damien
Season 1 Episode 10: “Ave Satani”
Directed by Nick Copus
Written by Glen Mazzara
Created by Glen Mazzara
Starring Bradley James, Barbara Hershey, Megalyn EK, Omid Abtahi, Scott Wilson, David Meunier
A&E
Air Date: Monday, May 9th, 2016, 10pm

“Ave Satani” was the name of the Oscar nominated original song (sang in Latin) from the 1976 film, The Omen, upon which the Damien series is based. It is a fitting title for the season’s final episode, as it seems Damien Thorn has embraced his inner Antichrist. Sister Greta’s attempted exorcism last week was met with limited success, as he pulled himself out of a shallow grave and turned the Megiddo dagger on her. Damien (Bradley James) has the mark of the devil, and is constantly surrounded by mysterious deaths. Despite Detective Shay (David Meunier) being convinced of his involvement, and apparent high ranking acolytes in his stead, Damien has maintained an almost childlike innocence, unwilling to be a part of the evil that shrouds him. He has watched his ex be swallowed in a construction site accident, and long time friends like John Lyons (Scott Wilson) are in cahoots with the obsessed Ann Rutledge (Barbara Hershey). Even his closest friends don’t know where to stand. Tonight, Damien will make his final choice and perhaps make the ultimate sacrifice.

Spoilers ahead.

Last week on Damien, after a mindtrip around the VA hospital last week culminated with him assisting a patient with suicide, Damien (Bradley James) went to his family’s estate, locked himself in the garage, turned the car on, and went to sleep. Of course, he didn’t succeed in killing himself; a couple of canine companions showed up to drag his carcass from the vehicle. Ann Rutledge (Barbara Hershey) tells the doctors it was an accident brought on by substance abuse… but Damien is tired of the copious amount of death that surrounds him.

Spoilers below.

Gotham 215-10

Gotham
Season 2 Episode 15: “Mad Grey Dawn”
Directed by Nick Copus
Written by Robert Hull
Created by Bruno Heller
Starring Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, David Mazouz, Camren Bicondova, Morena Baccarin, Cory Michael Smith, Erin Richards, Chris Chalk, Michael Chiklis
FOX
Air Date: Monday, March 21st, 2016, 8pm

Last week on Gotham, Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) got a clean bill of health from Dr. Strange (BD Wong), and was released. Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) thought Jim (Ben McKenzie) was onto him about the disappearance of Ms. Kringle. Bruce and Alfred (David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee) went on the hunt for Bruce’s parents’ killer, but when Alfred got laid up, Bruce continued alone. With some help from a Joker-y looking Lori Petty, Bruce found his man. He ended up unable to kill him, however, by the time Jim caught up to them, the killer-for-hire turned the gun on himself. Bruce went to live on the streets with Selina (Camren Bicondova)

Warning! Spoilers below.

FOX
Air Date: Monday, February 29th, 2016, 8pm

Last time on Gotham, it looked like the end for Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz), but we know he can’t die – he’s Batman! Mazouz was a standout during the latter half of the season, with quite the game face. The monks almost sacrificed him, but he was saved at the last minute by Cat, Alfred, Jim, Bullock (Camren Bicondova, Sean Pertwee, Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue), especially Bullock with the late wheezing stair climb, and the GCPD. Silver redeemed herself (kinda) at the last minute. The fall finale was chock full of people trying to escape, but alas, for Theo Galavan (James Frain), Jim was the one who put an end to him.

Beware! Spoilers below.

What you missed on Gotham 1.14 “The Fearsome Dr. Crane”: Spoilers and wait! Why did you miss it? It sets up this week’s episode!

Besides Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) outing Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) to Maroni (David Zayas); Penguin almost turning into a sedan sandwich; and Bruce (David Mazouz) basically telling Jim (Ben McKenzie) that he sucks, Jim and Harvey (Donal Logue) failed to catch Dr. Crane. Dr. Crane’s super-fun murder spree involves scaring the shit out of his victims as the method of murder, before stealing their adrenal glands. Well…at least Harvey saved the girl.
