“The Shannara Chronicles” was quickly becoming a display of MTV’s ability to make a show that doesn’t revolve entirely around teen drama. The blend of fantasy and dystopian elements coupled with the visuals and plot really elevated it among the network’s other shows. Each episode kept building...

Another week, another two vastly different episodes for “Agent Carter.” Just look at their respective beginnings. “Edge of Mystery” opens on a flashback to the very first episode and cuts to a disheveled Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy) sobbing at his wife’s bed, while “A Little Song and Danc...

Each episode in “The Shannara Chronicles” seems to be outdoing the previous one in ways I would have never guessed. The plot, fantasy and characters keep getting more intricate, and I congratulate MTV on doing such a great job producing the show. The main focus of this episode centered on our...

Last week’s midseason premiere centered around Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) slowly physically recovering from a brutal attack from one of her patient’s, and this week, we picked up with her trying to get her mental state and emotions together.

Last episode of “The Shannara Chronicles” I was curious to learn more about the human race and how it was almost entirely wiped out. While this episode delivered some of the information I wanted, it just left me more curious than ever and slightly annoyed. Unlike other episodes, there was less...

Thursday’s are officially the best day of the week again, with Shonda Rhimes’ triumvirate of twisty, turny, soapy dramas once again gracing our TV screens after an all-too-long midseason hiatus. The anchor of the trio, “Scandal,” pulled out all the stops in its return, using a six-month time ...

February 12, 2016

If “How to Get Away With Murder” has one problem, it’s that there’s too much going on. Threads from last season are still spilling over into season two, even in the midseason premiere, and each episode, a whole new slew of twists is dumped on top of the audience. The show’s strength, though, ...

Last week I mentioned how the strength of individual episodes would depend on the minor characters and the actors’ portrayals of them. Lo and behold, ‘The Atomic Job’ pushed the minor characters straight into the spotlight. Rose (Lesley Boone), Dr. Samberly (Matt Braunger), Violet (Sarah Bolger) a...

The more I watch “The Shannara Chronicles,” the more impressed I get with MTV and the more drawn in I am. The CGI elements are excellently displayed and the New Zealand scenery just adds for a great fantasy vibe. “Breakline” mainly centered around our band being hunted and hunting elf hunters...
