Just finished watching and I'm not sure how I feel about this one. Definite filler involved here (I really hope those rumors about ten episodes the rest of the way are true). Yet there were some great moments. Every scene with Eichorst for example. Palmer getting under his skin was great. One of the few scenes with Palmer that I felt was memorable this whole season. I think Dutch should come back for one last episode so she can get offed. I didn't miss her this episode at all. The reaction Fet had when Setrakian said they were going to rob the Cardinal was priceless. Every time I think Zack is coming around he reverts back to being an idiot again. It's gotten annoying. Having said that I think he may finally get out after seeing Kelly attack Eph. Gus and QuinlanQuinlan was the best part for me despite nothing really happening. Quinlan has become the whole reason I watch this show. Makes sense since he was the character I was most excited about when I heard they were making these books into a TV show. Nice review Hank. I'll check out the podcast tomorrow on my way to work.

The Strain Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Intruders

Totally a filler episode. It was exactly what I had feared when they announced the second book would be split. Too much romance - I'm totally joining your 'hate-train' should Coco really be in love with Palmer or nothing more than a gold digger. And why did Gus need a girl only to have it taken away? That time could've been used so much better. Highlight of the episode was Eichhorst. His makeover lesson, his talk with Palmer ('Aaaww, I think you hurt her feelings'), the teasing of the bishop ('Send a lightning bolt, dear God.') ... everything was fun. I like this more cynical, sassy tone of him! And of course Quinlan. At this point, with the other characters sadly not getting to do anything important, he's even awesome when he's just standing in a dark alley, lecturing people ;-)


I was really starting to get tired of the Elina line anyway, they need something fresh.

The Last Ship Season 2 Episode 12 Review: Cry Havoc

This episode of The Last Ship was so good that it took away the sting of disappointment that the series finale of Failing Skies delivered.

@ Bill T.

Yikes. I just watched the falling skies finale. They had time to prepare, and that's all we got? Ouch.

All of this enthusiasm isn't doing much for my resolve to catch up with that one 😕

Hell on Wheels Season 5 Episode 7 Review: False Prophets

I come from a railroad family and was born and raised in Ogden Utah. I love this show even though the writers are playing fast and loose with both history and geography. Part of the fun of the show is what little "facts" are they going to mess with next. For example: Huntington asks Cullen if he's found a route to Ogden. They are coming from the west, through the Sierra Nevada mountains, heading east to Utah.....small but important detail there. Cullen answers him by saying "Straight through the coal fields of Weber Canyon." Nice.......first, Weber Canyon is EAST of Ogden, second, there are NO coal fields there. In fact, the Central Pacific railroad didn't get anywhere near Weber Canyon. They did get Promontory Point right though. the show and I've never seen the Wasatch Mountains look so high and snowy and majestic.......of course they are the Canadian Rockies in reality but our Wasatch Mountains are beautiful in their own right. And besides, Anson Mount is soooooo worth watching. And one more thing.....for anyone interested the Railroad station here has one of the best railroad museums in the states. The original station burned down and was rebuilt at the end of Historic 25th Street.......the results of all the railroad workers (including the Chinese who brought their opium dens with them), gunslingers, whores, gamblers, etc that made up those little Hell on Wheels towns following the railroad to Ogden after it became the terminus. Come visit and see how it all really ended.

The final battle scene with Kelly was very disappointing to me. It was great that Zach came face to "face" with Kelly, but other than that, it didn't see very thrilling. The fight scene in the church was much more thrilling! Other than that, agree with everything in your review. I've thought about the Palmer/Coco romance previously and always knew something was up with Coco, I'm very curious to know who she is working for while trying to get info out of Palmer. If it turns out to be nothing more than a romance, I will be very pissed off as well.


I'm enjoying the show. Is it as exciting as the original, no, but it's a different location and a different time frame, early in the outbreak, so it's not already "in our face". Plus, we're already so invested in the original group it's hard to shift gears and go backward in time, as if we don't already know what to expect. I like seeing how these characters react as they come to understand what is going on. Most of them have no real idea of what is happening, but Madison knows, even if she hasn't fully comprehended the full horror yet. I'm all in. But I think AMCs biggest mistake is in making us wait two weeks for the next episode. Reviews are shaky at this point, and to take a two week break may affect enthusiasm and cost viewers.

Haven Review: The Root of The Troubles

I wonder if Mara"s father found the aether years ago, got sick and she came to earth to find a cure and went insane with worry so when William came along, he talked her into giving people troubles for bad reasons and not to see if she can cure her father. Charlotte has come to get her back home because her penance is up and or because they managed to make her father better.

although it did kinda answer one question me and my husband always seem to ask when asking any zombie movie or show... "arn't their Zombie movies in this universe"? You would think that in the year 2015 with night of the living dead and every other zombie movie you see the police shoot a guy 100 times and he keeps coming then he bites and tries to eat the cop....ZOMBIE, you see a bunch of people start getting sick , then they start coming back and eating people Zombies, Bu I guess in the Walking dead universe there were never zombie movies.


Boring show not even worth watching. The walking dead is getting boring too. Only the die hard walking dead fans will keep that show running and will even be enough to get this snooze fest a second season renewal. There's no good tv shows anymore...
