Queen of the South Season 3 Episode 5 Review: El Juicio

Teresa Mendoza proved once again why she deserves to rule on Queen of the South Season 3 Episode 5, because there is nothing more badass than looking at your abductors and calmly telling them, "Let's get on with this." Now we know who Pecas was calling at the end of Queen of the South Season 3 Episode 4. It was Devon Finch. I hope it was clear to James that Pecas wasn’t calling in La Comisión because he’s the one who called Devon in the first place, but James certainly didn’t appear to be thinking about that when it was all over. James and Teresa having sex was inevitable. I had no doubt that it was going to happen eventually, but now it’s a question of whether or not it will continue, and if it will affect the business. I don’t know that the sex will change things when it comes to business. These two would already lay down their lives for one another. The biggest issue will be when Guero pops back into Teresa’s life. We all know it’s going to happen. As if Guero and James didn’t butt heads enough before, this will definitely ramp up the tension. That James had held back details of the story about his last job for Finch was expected, but he didn’t lie to pull one over on Teresa. He lied because he was ashamed that a little girl had died because of him. James: Her name was Suzie and she couldn't have been more than 6-years-old. I can't stop thinking about her. Teresa: You didn't mean for that to happen. You once told me there's not good or bad in this business. Right? James: I'm not sure I believe that anymore. Teresa: Because of that little girl? James: Her and you. Teresa: Listen, whatever you've done you don't need to hide from me. We're in this together. James: I don't deserve that. Teresa: Everyone deserves that. Permalink: Everyone deserves that. Added: July 19, 2018 For the first time, I believed James when he said he wanted to do things differently. When Teresa told Devon that he could have James, James didn’t even look shocked. I think it was what he was expecting once Teresa found out the truth, but I never doubted that she’d have James' back. Teresa: The cabinet behind me. James: With the guns? There's too many of them. We won't make it. Teresa: Then we don't make it. Permalink: Then we don't make it. Added: July 19, 2018 Teresa is the ultimate badass not because she can beat up her foes, but because she can outthink them. She’s a strategist who is always thinking several steps ahead, like the way she’s building her business large enough so that no one can touch her, but still taking flying lessons so she can escape if they come for her. Or being willing to fight her way out and possibly die by her partner’s side rather than surrender him to save her own skin.

American Woman Season 1 Episode 6 Review: The Heat Wave

It might seem easiest to blame it on the heat, but the truth of the matter, things were a lot different only 43 years ago. There weren't any messages or warnings included with American Woman Season 1 Episode 6, but with the world as different as it is now, it almost feels as if there should have been. When the Paramount TV president gets fired on the night this particular episode of television airs for concerns raised about comments made by Amy Powell in a professional setting, which they believed were inconsistent with our company’s values, well, it makes any discussion about sensitive topics feel very prickly. But maybe watching this slice of life from 43 years ago will help. I have no doubt it will also hurt. What I mean is I hope it will help the conversation even though bringing it up at all will hurt because thankfully, we've come a long way. For people who never lived at a time when any of this was the course of daily behavior, it's hard to understand why some people had such a difficult time with integration. What a word. Integration. Related: American Woman Season 1 Episode 5 Review: Adam It isn't a word that should be used for human beings. That it is used for humans is monstrous. That's why the episode makes a lot of sense. Bonnie has been enjoying her retail job and getting to know Louise. She was shocked when dealing with a customer who dared say something so ignorant to her new friend. Customer: These people certainly take their time, don't they? Bonnie: Sorry, what did you say? Permalink: Sorry, what did you say? Added: July 19, 2018 But I don't think Bonnie even understood what she was doing when she invited Louise and her family over for a pool day on the weekend. When she did it, and Louise asked her if she was sure, Bonnie hesitated just a bit. Was she sure? Bonnie: Girls, we're having company tomorrow! Jessica: Who? Bonnie: My friend, Louise, and her family. Becca: Why? Are you trying to prove how cool you are by inviting your black friend over? Permalink: Why? Are you trying to prove how cool you are by inviting your black friend over? Added: July 19, 2018 It was Bonnie's eldest daughter who called her on it, and while I believe Bonnie's intent was other than what Becca suspected, I don't believe it was pure, either. Even though Bonnie is now suffering a bit, she still feels entitled and wanted to share some of that with Bonnie and her non-air conditioned family. There couldn't have been a worse crash course in combining untested friendships in the Hollywood Hills than the pool date on that one day. Everyone was out of sorts. Kathleen still doesn't know how to read people, and although Diana was suffering over what she discovered from Mr. Bishop about the promotion, Kathleen still thought it would be the nicest thing ever to include dear Peggy in their plans for the week. Peggy's purpose in life seems to be to push the butto..

Cloak and Dagger Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Ghost Stories

Justice for Billy! (And Nathan... I guess.) Cloak and Dagger Season 1 Episode 8 gave us the long-awaited retribution for the two big deaths by the oil rig explosion. Tandy and Tyrone finally gave up their ghosts, but the damage was done. While one can walk away happy; the other's reality is forever changed. But, even with the good news, the trouble keeps on coming. Having Tandy and Tyrone turn to each other on the anniversary of the explosion was a big step in their relationship. Cloak and Dagger Season 1 has kept a consistent theme of reinforcing the pair's connection. Their powers not only pull them together, but it's the harmony they feel because they relate to one another. They understand each other when everyone else doesn't. Even though Tyrone brushed Tandy off in the beginning when his own family didn't want to celebrate, he still found his way back to her during the beach tradition. He wanted to be there for her. And also importantly, he wanted to be there for himself. The lit lantern wasn't only for Nathan, but the light symbolized Billy as well. The pair had the perfect moment where (at the time) they could leave the past behind. We should've known better than to think the anniversary would become a happily-ever-after. Tyrone: I got a confession out of him. It was like music. It was real, and awful, and sweet. Tandy: I didn’t get a confession, but I did scare the s*** out of him. Blowing the whistle on these a******* and putting Roxxon out of business. The past eight years have sucked, but maybe we do have a future? Tyrone: Maybe we do. Permalink: The past eight years have sucked, but maybe we do have a future? Added: July 19, 2018 Between the two families, the Johnsons reacted to the anniversary the hardest. (In a world where Melissa could pull herself together and look composed, you know Tyrone's parents were probably hurting emotionally.) Even though Tyrone, Otis, and Adina were in the same room together, the distance was palpable. Emotionally speaking, none of them were even in the same house. The moment felt like they were strangers who didn't know how to react around one another. "Ghost Stories" showed us the hidden dark side of the Johnsons, and it's a storyline that we needed to see. In contrast to Melissa Bowen, who crumbled under the pressure of Nathan's death and resorted to drinking/drugs/affairs, both Adina and Otis came across as overprotected parents who had it together. In reality, they suffered emotionally and the fear of losing each other. That tension must've eaten away at them throughout the years. Tyrone: Why are you here? Tandy: What? No hug? Not even a handshake?! Tyrone: Come on. Adina: Tyrone, who’s this? Tyrone: Oh, this is, um... this is my friend... Tandy: Tandy. Hi! Adina: Well, why did you stop by today, Tandy? Tandy: Um, today, I guess. Yeah, my dad died the same night as Tyrone’s brother, so I thought I’d stop by to..

Z Nation Spinoff Starring Jaime King Gets Series Order at Netflix

Z Nation is getting a spinoff! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has placed an order for a new series set in the world of the popular zombie drama. The series will be titled Black Summer and will span eight episodes on the streaming platform. As you likely already know, Z Nation airs on Syfy in the U.S. However, Netflix holds the streaming rights to the series, and the numbers must have been decent to pull the trigger on a spinoff. It's certainly a different way of doing business. There's no telling whether Syfy wanted the series to air there first, before going to Netflix in a similar fashion to the way the business model for Z Nation works. Related: Insatiable Trailer: Debby Ryan is out for Revenge Hart of Dixie alumna, Jaime King will lead the cast of the series. She will play a mother who is separated from her daughter and is forced to go on a mission to find her. While she may be strong and resourceful, she also has to contend with one of the deadliest summers on record as she navigates the world by hiding from the vicious zombies who are looking to make humans their meal at every corner of the earth. The spinoff was created by Z Nation creator, Karl Schaefer, and John Hymans. The duo will also serve as co-showrunners on the series. The original series launched back in 2014 and has proven to have a loyal following at Syfy. The series launched with the characters three years into a zombie apocalypse. Z Nation Season 4 wrapped in December 2017 and the new season is slated to debut later this year. A premiere date and additional casting details are expected for the spinoff later this year.

Nightflyers Official Trailer: A Flight To Save Humanity But Who Will Save Them?

It's only the first official day of San Diego Comic Con but we already have some significant science fiction to tide us over for fall. In addition to Doctor Who and Origin, we can now add George R.R. Martin's Nightflyers to the list. These people are going to have to fight harder to stay alive than they've ever fought for anything. In 2093, in hopes of making contact with a mysterious alien life at the edge of our solar system, a group of maverick scientists and a powerful telepath embark on an expedition aboard The Nightflyer. Related: Origin Teaser: YouTube Red Premieres First Look at Comic Con! As they race towards first contact, terrifying and violent events begin to occur, causing the once tight-knit crew to mistrust each other. It's not long before their main mission becomes survival. This sounds very familiar to me and most like the fantastic but gone too soon series Defying Gravity that aired and was ridiculously overlooked in 2009. From the intent of the mission to the psychological issues the crew faced while in the sky, it was one of the most original and best-paced productions of that year. Related: Doctor Who Season 11 Official Teaser: This is Gonna Be Fun! A bit of it was mimicked on portions of Extant and then again on movies over the years. It will be interesting to see Martin's take on the same subject matter, and how it all comes together without moving too fast to burn through story but fast enough to keep viewers attention. Nightflyers is based on the novella by George R. R. Martin, who also serves as an executive producer on the project, and is produced by Universal Cable Productions and co-produced by Netflix. The series stars Eoin Macken (The Night Shift), Sam Strike (Timeless), Maya Eshet (Teen Wolf), Angus Sampson (Fargo), Jodie Turner-Smith (The Last Ship), Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire), David Ajala (Falling Water), and Brían F. O’Byrne (Manhunt: Unabomber). Related: The Expanse: Saved by Amazon! And, seriously, could you ask for a better cast? They are all very strong players from their respective slices of the acting universe coming together to one series, and that's the most we can ask for with a project like this. Jeff Buhler wrote the adaptation for television and is the showrunner and executive producer. Brian Nelson, Mike Cahill and Andrew McCarthy serve as executive producers. Gene Klein, David Bartis and Doug Liman from Hypnotic; Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; and Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions also serve as executive producers. Check out the trailer. Is this the next winner for Syfy, or are you still skittish about space adventures after The Expanse was canceled?

The Walking Dead: Yes, Andrew Lincoln Is Leaving!

The rumors are true, The Walking Dead Fanatics! Andrew Lincoln is officially leaving the hit zombie drama during Season 9! Comic book creator, Robert Kirkman took part in an interview with Kevin Smith on Thursday and was asked whether the rumors about Lincoln's looming exit were legit, and he gave the following answer: "It's looking that way," he said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "It does make the differences between the comic and the show more pronounced," Kirkman continued, saying that Rick that is very much present in the comic books. "But at the end of the day, it's all about Andrew Lincoln. This is a human being. This is someone I have known for almost a decade, somebody that I love. He's been sweating in Georgia, away from his family, for so long." Related: The Walking Dead: Which Original Star is Returning? In all honesty, the news is unsurprising when you consider the fact that Collider ran a story in May which stated that Lincoln would be in half-a-dozen episodes of The Walking Dead Season 9 before bidding adieu to the series for good. There's no question about whether it will change the dynamic of the show. Rick has been an integral character since The Walking Dead Season 1 Episode 1, so it's going to be very different. The good thing about his exit is that we know Jon Bernthal is staging a comeback, so we're surely going to get some flashbacks of Rick and Shane before their friendship fell apart. Lincoln's departure comes mere months after Chandler Riggs exited as Carl Grimes. Fans freaked out about that big exit, so there's no telling how they're going to react to the loss of Rick. On top of that, Lauren Cohan will likely be parting ways with the show during the upcoming season. Her ABC show, Whiskey Cavalier, landed a series order for 2019 at ABC. While some of the key players are leaving, we do know that some new characters are making their entrance during Season 9. Per Comicbook.com, Wonder Woman scene-stealer Eleanor Matsuura has been cast as the comic book character, Yumiko.

Impulse Renewed by YouTube for Season 2 in 2019!

Great news, Impulse fans! An announcement straight out of Comic-Con revealed YouTube wants to show you more of Doug Liman's Impulse series! The first hourlong series of its kind to come to YouTube Premium, Impulse follows Henry Coles, a rebellious teenager who has just discovered she has teleportation powers. The series ended on several cliffhangers, leaving the audience (and the cast) wondering what would happen if the story continued. TV Fanatic was able to talk with one of the stars of Impulse, Craig Arnold, who plays Lucas Boone in the series. He had his fingers crossed for a Season 2, and it looks like it worked! Way to go, Craig! In the finale of Impulse Season 1, Lucas was found in the house of the boy he murdered. Related: Impulse: Craig Arnold on Lucas Boone, Atonement & Season 2 When asked what he thinks will happen to Lucas in Season 2, Craig said, "He's ready to pay for what he's done and atone for his sins. He feels guilty and he doesn't really know what else to do." Now we'll get to find out Lucas's punishment, and see if he makes it out of that house alive. Parents can be brutal when it comes to their kids, so fingers crossed Lucas makes it. "This dramatic thriller has all of the right elements — with unexplained events and complex characters who drew us into their mysterious world right from the start," said YouTube head of original content Susanne Daniels. "We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Universal Cable Productions and the talented team at Hypnotic to create another intriguing season." Henry was also left on an edge, having just teleported with Bill Boone's severed arm in her bedroom, and an agency hunting her down for her powers. She'll be running from them this season, and she's going to need all the help she can get to stay away from them. Luckily, Henry has a whole new family and some friends who have her back. Related: Origin Teaser: YouTube Red Premieres First Look at Comic Con! She's also getting a little handle on this new found power of hers, so it will be interesting to see what she can do. One thing's for sure, Henry isn't one to back down from a fight, and if last season taught us anything, she's one tough chick. Impulse Season 1 was centered around Henry settling down and beginning to trust people around her. This season should be all about developing her powers and fighting the organization collecting teleporters, like Henry's father. Speaking of Henry's father, it wouldn't be surprising if we found out his fate. Maybe he's still alive. Wouldn't that be something? Related: Impulse Season 1 Review: An Outsider & Her Secret Power If you ask me, Townes will be instrumental in helping Henry harness her powers, and she'll use those powers to take down the agency. Maybe her role will be to free the teleporters held captive. There are so many ways next season coul..

A Discovery of Witches Acquired by Sundance Now and Shudder

Sundance Now, AMC Networks’ direct-to-consumer SVOD service curated with high-quality dramas, comedies, and crime thrillers, and Shudder, the leading premium streaming service for thriller, suspense and horror, today announced at SDCC the joint acquisition of the Sky original production, A Discovery of Witches. The eight-episode drama is produced by Bad Wolf -- the creative team behind The Night Of, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Da Vinci’s Demons, and the forthcoming adaptation of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Deborah Harkness, A Discovery of Witches stars Emmy® nominated actor Matthew Goode (The Crown, Downton Abbey), Teresa Palmer (Hacksaw Ridge), Alex Kingston (ER, Doctor Who), Valarie Pettiford (Being Mary Jane) and Owen Teale (Game of Thrones). The series will make its debut in the U.S. and Canada on a date to be confirmed, with all episodes available simultaneously on both Sundance Now and Shudder, marking the first partnership of this kind for the two SVOD services. SundanceTV has also acquired second window linear rights to the series. Filmed in the UK at Wolf Studios Wales and on location in Oxford, A Discovery of Witches is a contemporary love story that begins against the backdrop of Oxford academic life, in a world where small numbers of witches, vampires and daemons live and work, unseen amongst humans, hiding in plain sight. Teresa Palmer is the brilliant historian Diana Bishop, a reluctant witch denying her heritage. Related: 21 Wickedly Awesome TV Witches The discovery of a bewitched manuscript in Oxford’s Bodleian Library throws her into the heart of a dangerous mystery – and into the path of the enigmatic vampire and geneticist, Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Goode), who hides a dark family secret. As Diana and Matthew embark on a journey to understand the secrets of the ancient manuscript, their relationship develops, and events threaten to unravel the fragile peace that has long existed between witches, vampires, daemons, and humans. Alex Kingston plays Sarah Bishop – Diana’s aunt, Valarie Pettiford plays her partner Emily Mather, and Owen Teale plays Peter Knox, a member of the Congregation. “This captivating story is filled with intrigue, romance, and magic and set in spectacular locations that underscore those very qualities,” said Jan Diedrichsen, General Manager, Sundance Now. “We are thrilled to see Deborah Harkness’ books brought to life in such an inspired way with such a charismatic cast and talented crew.
