Pilot Review: Deception

From the people who brought you every “I have an abnormal approach to crime solving” show who also saw Now You See Me and Now You See Me 2 comes a new show about a disgraced magician who helps the FBI solve the very abundant magic-related cases.

The good:

Well, it’s got a unique angle and I’m not talking about the magic stuff alone. Continue reading

Pilot Review: Legends of Tomorrow

Ooooh I wanted this to be so good. It has Hawkgirl who was my favorite in the old Justice League and I am on board with
the Flash version we are getting. It had Captain Cold, the youngun part of Firestorm, and The Atom who are all super attractive with really enjoyable characters. It has Victor Garber who is enjoyable. It has Sara Continue reading

Pilot Review: Stitchers

Okay, before we go forward I will admit one thing. I know a little bit about neuroscience. And by a little I mean definitely enough to get all of the arguments against this show from a science point of view. So to the mythical followers in my mind that are planning to argue science with me, don’t bother. I get it. We’re good. I still like this show.

Episode Review: Bachelorette, Season Kaitlyn, Week 2

I didn’t do much last week but if you would like first impressions and a list of names just check here. Spoilers darlings.

Let’s get back to a below average looking group of guys (compared to other seasons) who could all, for the most part, do themselves a favor and go back to hair basics.

We get to see Britt break down in tears on the phone with her mom only to open the door to find Brady waiting to chill with her. Now we all are probably groaning a little and wondering if he looked at his odds and went with the one that made him look best. But let’s pretend not to be so jaded and that maybe they will be annoyingly happy together. They are still dating after a week which is longer than half of the Bachelor couples so good for them.

-First Group Date: Daniel, Justin, Jared, Corey, Tanner, Kupah, Ben H, and Ben Z (I see this ending with a ring)

The guys have to box or something. Continue reading
