Smallville: Wrath

(S07E07) Okay, this was the first time I ever watched Smallville and had my jaw drop. Seriously. Why? Well, I'm glad you asked. Let's examine the facts: Lana and Clark are deep into dating mode. Plus, she's been staying at the Kent farm with him ever since she's returned from the dead. However, they've apparently not be able to um ... consummate that relationship because of Clark's superpowers. I...

Reaper: Love, Bullets and Blacktop

(S01E07) "In the end, it all comes down to endorphins and genitalia." -- The Devil. What's this? Even more cat and mouse back and forth between Sam and Andi? AHHH! That sound you might have heard echoing across the country was my head exploding. Nothing to worry about. I got everything back together without too much hassle. An ear here, nose goes about here ... we're all set! Then Booger from Rev...

Weeds: Risk

(S03E13) As Erin pointed out last week, worlds collided on the previous episode of Weeds, and we're still reeling from that collision. While it might not be a big enough bang to open up an Einstein-Rosen Wormhole, it was still pretty damn close. Still, with everything that's been happening on the show, it's hard not to agree with Celia's resounding "Slut!" nametag she's applied to Nancy. Nancy a...

Smallville: Lara

(S07E06) Shades of Superman past! Kara getting sent off-world by her Dad Zor-El while Krypton starts to come apart around her? Egads. Plus all of that crystalline Kryptonian architecture that the Superman: The Movie provided us with. Then snap cut to Kara almost getting run down in the sky by a jetliner in a really nice special effects shot that probably blew their budget for a show to come later...

Smallville: Action

(S07E05) I guess I never really noticed it before, but isn't it a bit ironic that Warrior Angel is a sort of blend of Lex Luthor and Superman? You've got the waving red cape, Superman, and the bald head, Lex Luthor. Plus, you have the superpowers, courtesy of Superman, and that silver breastplate thing. Remember a few seasons ago when Lex had that silver breastplate on display at the museum ... o...

Reaper: What About Blob

(S01E05) Okay, first things first. How cool was it that Chief Tyrol from Battlestar Galactica was a demonic courier from Hell in this episode? His deadpan delivery cracked me up, and he definitely sold me on considering using the devil to deliver things rather than UPS or FedEx. He was definitely much more thorough. I know that Kevin Smith is a huge (no pun intended) BSG fan, so I wonder if he had...

Weeds: Cankles

(S03E11) Well, when we left our story last time, poor Celia (did anyone ever think they'd see the words "poor Celia" together in a sentence about Weeds?) had walked in on Sullivan and Nancy having sex all over the conference table. Oh, and she was also bearing a plate of cupcakes. Double ouch. So, we rejoin this little sexcapade in progress. Apparently. Celia continues to crouch down and eavesdrop...

Smallville: Cure

(S07E04) Okay, I have to admit, it took me a good long while to wrap my brain around this episode of Smallville. Not because of the schlocky "Cure" plot, but because of you-know-who. That's right ... Dean Cain. It was just more than a tad freaky seeing him go toe to toe with Clark, wasn't it? While this show is about a billion times better than Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman was...

Reaper: Magic

(S01E04) "MOM! DAD! I NEED A RIDE!" -- Sam, collector of escaped souls from Hell. At least this morning Sam is able to put things in his mouth without them turning into bugs. However, he does the dreaded "drink orange juice right after brushing your teeth" thing, which is worse than shoving a cockroach in your mouth, *shudder*. That has to be a concoction whipped up in the bowels of Hades. Accomp...

Smallville: Fierce

(S07E03) Wow. I feel like all I have to do for this review is to write "Kara enter a beauty contest" and it just speaks for itself. Sure, there's a bit more to it than that, but c'mon ... you were so waiting for the swimsuit competition. Admit it. So, Clark has been keeping Kara "locked up" on the farm with nothing but Beauty and the Geek to watch? How coincidental that also airs on The CW. In fa...
