The Last Man on Earth Season 4 Episode 15 Review: Designated Survivors

The Last Man on Earth delivers as simple yet delightful chapter in the gang's story, with the return of Mike and an exciting announcement for Todd. On The Last Man on Earth Season 4 Episode 15, Mike returns, and Tandy is overjoyed to see his brother. Todd is nervous that Erica will want to have a baby with Mike instead, but he gets exciting news that Erica is pregnant with his child. Mike discovers a large and mysterious heat signature on his computer. Jason Sudeikis was as perfect as I expected he would be. I was devastated when we thought he died so I welcomed his return. Sudeikis has a great rapport with Forte, and due to his charm, he fits in well with the rest of the gang.

I am sad, though, that, based on the preview, it seems Mike will disappear once again. I was especially happy when I heard those first notes of "Falling Slowly." It is one of my favorite songs, and when Tandy and Mike first sang it on The Last Man on Earth Season 2 Episode 16, I cried tears of joy. I am so glad they brought back the brothers' favorite song to reunite them. Todd: Mike, what are your intentions? Mike: Oh! To nail this harmony and roll right into When the Saints Go Marching In!

Added: April 16, 2018 Their love of karaoke throughout the episode also made me nostalgic for the actors' years together on Saturday Night Live. The humor and carefree attitude was reminiscent of many classic sketches with the two of them. There were also plenty of emotional moments to offset the silliness of the karaoke. I have said it before, and I will continue to say it. This series is one of the best comedies at finding the heart and soul in its characters, even with their flaws and annoying quirks.

None of the members of the gang are perfect, and they often frustrate or annoy me. These emotional moments, though, keep us coming back for more. Mike and Tandy's reunion was beautiful.

The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 16 Review: Wrath

Oh, the emotions! On The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 16 the lengthy and drawn-out war between AHK and the Saviors finally came to a dramatic and definitive end. Rick's group -- along with the aid from some unlikely allies -- helped turn the tide in AHK's favor and finally put an end to Negan's regime. Given how rushed The Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 15 felt, I had some concerns going into the finale. Would the 70-minute runtime be enough to conclude this entire arc satisfyingly? The answer is a resounding: Yes! In the end, Rick's mercy prevailed over his wrath. Of course, Rick saving Negan is not the outcome most viewers want to see, but when it comes down to it, allowing Negan to live was the only way this conflict could have ended. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! Casualties are inevitable in any war, and while the death toll increasingly rose for both sides over the past two seasons. Going into The Walking Dead Season 8 Finale and especially with the title of "Wrath," you would assume that we'd see bodies pile up during the hour. But when all was said and done in the culmination of this war, there was very little bloodshed. I have to admit, I was shocked that Rick walked right into Negan's trap. Granted, Rick and the group had every right to trust that Negan's "plan" was legit, considering that Dwight hadn't led them wrong in the past. It's understandable that Rick wanted the war to be over, but he just seemed far too quick to jump at the chance. And as expected, Rick lead his group right Negan's hands. Epic facepalm! That brings me to the biggest twist of the finale. My man Eugene came through and sabotaged the ammunition he made for the Saviors! I never gave up on Eugene, and there was no better feeling than to see him come through in the end as the Saviors weapons backfired on them. And just like that, what was an incredibly dire situation quickly turned into a victory. However, that twist does draw attention to the simple fact that had it not been for Eugene, Rick would have led his people to certain death. Initially, I thought tampering with the ammo was Eugene's plan all along, but later on, he stated that it was only after Rosita's words to him and Gabriel's attempt to sabotage the ammo did make turn Eugene around. Eugene gave up a life of luxury and safety with the Saviors in exchange for helping his friends. It was the most selfless move Eugene could make. And for someone who has proven himself to be selfish time and time again, it was a huge game changer, and Eugene deserves to be commended. When Tara went back to hold off the Saviors arriving at Hilltop, I thought that was the end for her. Luckily, things didn't do down that way. As expected, Oceanside showed up to lend a hand. While their appearance didn't play as much of ..

Fear the Walking Dead Season Premiere Review: What’s Your Story?

That was one hell of a season premiere! If there was any doubt that Morgan Jones' transition over from The Walking Dead would be a rough one, then Fear the Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 1 should have immediately put any such concerns to rest. The highly anticipated crossover event saw one of the most popular and intriguing characters within the Walking Dead universe effortlessly make his way into his new home without missing a beat. Airing the Season 4 premiere directly following the season finale of The Walking Dead really bolstered Morgan's transition, making it a smooth and natural one. Even with these two series airing back-to-back, it was very clear that they vastly different shows. The little cameos from Jesus, Carol, and Rick were just enough to set up this crossover without feeling like just another episode of The Walking Dead. It was something different, yet familiar at the same time, and it was very exciting. When Fear the Walking Dead went into its third season, I was a bit apprehensive at the onset. The series was still trying to find its footing, and I was unsure if it would ever have succeeded in coming into its own. But as the season went on, I was incredibly surprised with how much the series improved and began to find its own identity. Sure, there were some growing pains along the way, but by the end of Fear the Walking Dead Season 3, I was incredibly satisfied with how far the show had come and optimistic for where the series could go. Related: AMC launches ad-free streaming service Fast forward to one month later, and the announcement came that Lennie James' character would be making an epic crossover to Fear the Walking Dead. I had zero uncertainty that Morgan would not fit in with the series. My only real concern was having new showrunners at the helm, and the skepticism that the shakeup could potentially negate all of the progress and momentum that the series had built up to this point. But after watching the Fear the Walking Dead Season 4 premiere, I couldn't be happier to have been more wrong. The brand spanking new title card and logo, along with its ominous theme really set the tone for the hour, and drove home the fact that this is a fresh start not only for the series but for Morgan, as well. Athea: Tell me one real thing, then we'll call it even. Why'd you leave? Morgan: ... I lose people, and then I lose myself. Permalink: ... I lose people, and then I lose myself. Added: April 04, 2018 The war with the Saviors had taken a serious toll on Morgan's fragile mind. And while Negan was eventually defeated, the cost of it all was high. It's heartbreaking that Morgan was driven to such a point that he needed to separate himself from the group, but if anyone has earned a break from fighting, it's Morgan. He's spent numerous seasons looking out for the people he cared for, and it was time that he started looking after himself. Even though..

Trust Season 1 Episode 4 Review: That’s All Folks!

This show just keeps getting better and better. While there was nothing particularly bad about the first two installments of the series, Trust Season 1 Episode 4 (like the one immediately before) has been far more exciting and intriguing. Again, I know that the real Getty family has issues with the show's representation of events. And, of course, it's totally within their right to protest. However, as a viewer, the creative liberties Danny Boyle & Co. have taken with Paul's story have made the show all the more entertaining. With the recent influx of crime dramas – the two seasons of American Crime Story, in particular – I've always been able to appreciate and enjoy them as well-made pieces of TV. But the stories have never propelled me forward. After all, given that it's based in actual history, you go in already knowing exactly how it ends. The twists and turns throughout the past few episodes of Trust have made the series one I'm always eager to see more of and one full of genuine excitement and drama, despite already knowing the ultimate outcome. Related: Trust Season 1 Episode 3 Review: La Dolce Vita Following Paul's initial kidnapping hoax going very, very wrong, "That's All Folks" picked up almost immediately where the last installment left off: with Bertolini dead and Paul now in the hands of Primo and his men. As established on "La Dolce Vita," Primo is a psychopath. Luca Marinelli has been great as our villain, pulling off Primo's weirdly charming swagger while still making him seem frightening and menacing. Related: Trust Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Lone Star I've mentioned before, too, how stunning the show's visuals are. Boyle made great use of Rome and of Getty's estate, Sutton House. This go-around, we got to spend time in Italy's mountains, where Primo and the kidnappers were keeping Paul. Sure enough, the scenery was gorgeous. While Primo's motives have been decidedly nefarious, those around him are less straightforward villains. For example, on this installment, we met Fifty, the nervous, non-criminal cousin of Primo and estate lawyer. Primo essentially forced Fifty to act as the intermediary negotiator, going back and forth between Primo and the Getty family for the ransom demand. Getty: So what are you saying? This business is not a hoax? My grandson really has been kidnapped? Fletcher: What I'm saying is that when people start getting killed, whatever it is, it's not a hoax anymore. Permalink: What I'm saying is that when people start getting killed, whatever it is, it's not a hoax... Added: April 15, 2018 This show has been surprisingly lighthearted and humorous at times. Pretty much every moment with Fifty was an example of that. The scene where Fifty tried to get up his nerve to make the ransom demand was hysterical. I couldn't stop laughing throughout the entire sequence where he tried to ..

The Royals Season 4 Episode 6 Review: My News Shall Be the Fruit to That Great Feast

Did we just redeem King Robert on The Royals Season 4 Episode 6? 'Cause It sure felt like it. First, Jasper found out that his belief that Robert tried to have him assassinated couldn't be further from the truth. Then, Robert found out that innocent Willow may actually be playing him. But does that explain all the other villainous things he's done or forgive his manipulative ways? Let's unpack it all, shall we? Jasper's dad has been a pretty random addition this season. Did anyone in the palace really buy his terrible accent? It makes me feel better knowing Dutchy knew she was being played this whole time. His father's motive for crashing at the palace wasn't clear at first until he revealed he was the one that shot Jasper. Related: Get Britbox via Prime Video Channels for the biggest streaming collection of TV from BBC & ITV...ever. GASP, right? How could a father try to take out his own son? In some twisted way, his father believed that shooting him would be a good way of apologizing for being a terrible parent. I guess his attempt worked because Jasper did, in fact, become a hero in England, got out from under his past and is publicly dating the Princess. Robert: How are you feeling Jasper? Jasper: I’ll live… Permalink: I’ll live… Added: April 15, 2018 Jasper's father even forced Robert into making his son a Knight so that the Princess was no longer dating a Commoner. If you think about it, he's kind of brilliant. Sure, he could have actually killed Jasper, but why think about the negatives and what "could" have happened? It seems this is that last we'll see of him, for now, and I'm not bothered by that. The characters at the Palace are superfluous so it's great when we can wrap up storylines that never did much for us anyway. King Robert thought he had Willow wrapped around her finger, but it's entirely possible that she isn't all that she seems to be. As Eleanor put it, anything is possible in this place. Her good-girl nature could all be an act, one that she used to lure in Robert and secure herself as the next Queen of England. Queen: Robert, walk away. Robert: Don’t tell me to walk away. I’m the goddamn King. Queen: You’re my goddamn son and this is my goddamn birthday. So, if I tell you to walk away, you’ll goddamn walk away. Permalink: You’re my goddamn son and this is my goddamn birthday. So, if I tell you to walk away, you’ll... Added: April 15, 2018 Even hitting pause on his proposal from The Royals Season 4 Episode 5 could have been a move so that she didn't look too eager or desperate. And Eleanor made up her mind rather quickly after talking to Queen Helena who said she never regretted making the decision which means she knew she was going to say yes all along. At this point, Willow has been handed everything a girl could dream of without really doing much for it. It's possible Cassandra ..

Timeless Season 2 Episode 5 Review: The Kennedy Curse

Let's talk about fate, baby. You have to give teenage John F. Kennedy a lot of credit. He found out what his future held, yet he still went back to his time on Timeless Season 2 Episode 5. The Lifeboat crew also got touched by the fickle finger of fate as well. In this episode, we finally got the answer to what happens when Lucy doesn't go on a mission. In short, chaos ensued. Lucy was truly in no shape to time travel after being stabbed on Timeless Season 2 Episode 4. She was running a 105 fever and was in and out of consciousness. She was having trouble standing and shuffling around. Related: Watch Timeless Online: Season 2 Episode 4 But she is the brains of this operation. Her not being there led to bad choices, bringing John, a horny hellion, forward to the present while leaving Flynn to shoot up a 1934 prep school. After all, in the opening scene, he had pulled a fire alarm to sneak off with a girl. Why would an ancient bunker possibly hold him? Lucy had spun a plausible explanation for John's English teacher pulling a gun on him. But he still went walkabout so he could call home. It was unrealistic how John was able to roll with all the technological advances over the intervening 84 years from his time to the present. Freaking out would have been more appropriate. Kayla and her friends also went amazingly along with the well-dressed teen claiming to be the man who would become our 35th president. I liked Kayla's idea of taking him home so that her mother, the shrink, could talk with this confused but harmless young man. Related: Get Britbox via Amazon Channels for the biggest streaming collection of TV from BBC & ITV...ever. The series' two historians both came in really handy when it came down to tracking the young JFK. I'd never realized how sickly he had been during his youth. Both Lucy and Carol knew about this and sent their respective teams to check hospitals. Fortunately, Kayla had already spirited away John. Still, Emma and Wyatt got to rumble, with all that hospital equipment as weapons. Lightweight Lucy chose a lunch tray as her weapon, which is why she ended up as Emma's temporary hostage. We got to see hardened Lucy again at that moment when she urged Wyatt to shoot Emma since she is Rittenhouse's only pilot. No wonder Emma ran. I still don't get how Emma ended up at Kayla's party unless she tracked social media as well. Emma is making Flynn look absolutely restrained by comparison, as she'll open fire under any circumstances. John showed a hint of the well-respected President he would become when he went back despite knowing all the tragedy which his future held.

The Arrangement Season 2 Episode 6 Review: The Break Up

Megan should cash in her chips and call it a day. Kyle made it very clear on The Arrangement Season 2 Episode 6 that he'll never sever ties with Terence because without him Kyle would not exist. Terence brought Kyle back from the brink of suicide, and it's something that Kyle will never forget. Like he said, Terence saved his life. Megan has no chance of breaking the spell Kyle is under. He's so wrapped up in the idea that Terence is his savior that he's never going to be able to break free. Even learning the truth about Lisbeth and Terence wouldn't be enough to break that spell. Related: The Arrangement Season 2 Episode 5 Review: You Are Not Alone Terence would lie, and Kyle would believe him because that's how messed up Kyle is. Kyle is drowning in the Kool-Aid, and there's no way out. Call me cold-hearted, but I wouldn't waste my time anymore. I don't believe that Megan loves Kyle enough to risk her life the way that she is right now. If she walked away, she'd ruin her career, but she needs to save herself before it's too late. There are too many things pulling at her. Shaun is not to be trusted, and it's up in the air whether or not Zach is trustworthy. The best thing for Megan to do is get out and let IHM, Terence, and all the rest of them live in their self-created craziness. Megan can't destroy them all by herself anyway. She can't take down Terence all by herself. She can't even do it with Gail, Gene, or Zach (if they're to be trusted), or even Julia -- if they ever find her. The machine is too powerful, and Megan doesn't have enough support to tear it apart. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video! Watch Anywhere! Cancel Anytime! Besides that, why does she want to continue working in a toxic environment where you're told you don't matter by the man your future husband worships? Those were some harsh words Terence threw at her, and it wasn't the first time he's been mean to her. Continuing to tolerate that kind of behavior from anyone only makes her look more foolish. After everything she's been through with Kyle and IHM, when is enough going to be enough? It's frustrating watching her spin her wheels for a man and a career that only exists because of an arrangement she made with a man. Where is her pride? I have no admiration for a woman who puts herself in a situation like that. Megan's only focus should be finding ways to get out of this mess. Forget about saving Kyle West. Forget about taking down Terence and IHM. Save yourself, Megan! Kyle gave her the perfect opportunity to walk away when he told her she'd never be his lifeline. She will never be number one in his life, and if she didn't believe it before, she better believe it now because Kyle spelled it out plain and simple. He loves her, but not enough ..

Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 Episode 8 Review: Rifting Apart

Not even death can keep this family apart. On Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 Episode 8 Pablo put his Brujo skills to use as he and Ash devised a plan to rescue Kelly and Brandy from the Deadlands. Unfortunately, Ash's rift excursion ended up being only partially successful. While Ash was still reeling from the loss of Brandy, he had to deal with another pressing. After his evil clone's massacre at the school on Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 episode 7, Ash was framed as the culprit and now a wanted man by local law enforcement. Related: Get Starz via Prime Video Channels for Captivating Original Series & Hit Movies! The one thing that really threw me for a loop is how the police put out a statewide search, yet Ash and Pablo encountered no issues when heading back to the store's cellar. You would think that with having a supposed serial killer on the loose, the two places that the police would be staking out would be Ash's house and the hardware store. But given the length of the episode and how much went on during this installment, adding the police as an additional obstacle possibly could have eaten up too much time. Pablo, I gotta get my hands on my little girl's body before they do! Ash Permalink: Pablo, I gotta get my hands on my little girls body before they do! Added: April 09, 2018 Ever since Pablo earned his Brujo status on Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 Episode 5, I have been waiting for him to further embrace being El Brujo Especiale. There is potentially so much untapped power at his disposal, and while I understand that Pablo is still learning how to harness that power, I'm very eager to see his true capabilities. Hopefully, over the next couple of episodes, we'll get to see what else is in his arsenal other than opening and closing doorways to other worlds. Pablo's theory about needing to be killed by the evil in order gain entry into the Deadlands was a precarious hunch to use. With The Ghost Beaters already down two members, could you imagine if Pablo had been wrong? Kill yourself with the Kandarian dagger, or jump into the rift just as the Knight did on Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3 Episode 6 and you risk morphing into some monstrosity that was pulled out of a Clive Barker film. It was a gamble either way, and the right decision was ultimately made when Pablo helped Ash with his assisted suicide and awoke in the Deadlands. Pablo: I think in order to get to this evil dead place is ... Ash: Is to get really wasted and do some shrooms? I can do that in my sleep. Pablo: No, I think you gotta let the evil kill you.

Killing Eve Season 1 Episode 2 Review: I’ll Deal with Him Later

Who is Anna? Given everything else we know so far about Villanelle, the blank-faced drawing revealed on Killing Eve Season 1 Episode 2 most likely won't be something we'd ordinarily expect to ruffle the feathers of a young woman. But the moment between Eve and Villanelle left a mark on both women and now we know why. Eve initially thought the "nurse" might be someone who could have seen the killer she's now seeking, but it didn't take her long to realize she more than likely had her own experience with the woman she thinks deserves to be killing people for being so damn clever so far. The opening discussion with Carolyn and Eve was brilliant. Neither woman is one for small talk, so they got straight to business. I've thought that very thing that Eve conveyed to Carolyn in her annoyance with not being on the case herself: if the female assassin can't be caught by the best of them, then she should still be killing. The dialogue is impeccable throughout and that scene easily defined the two characters. We're not left guessing at the motivations of anyone but Villanelle, and that's beautiful. The show itself is like a lesson for women to reach their breaking point sooner so they can be heard at their jobs by people other than their annoying bosses. Eve: So there was never any CCTV? Frank: No. I was just tired of you piping up with your theories any time there was a snip of conspiracy in the air you tiresome think bucket! Permalink: No. I was just tired of you piping up with your theories any time there was a snip of... Added: April 12, 2018 While Frank refused to listen because Eve wanted to do more than the job she was hired to do, Carolyn was looking for someone with a mind exactly like Eve's, and if Eve had not spoken up she wouldn't have ever stepped foot into her brain. And while the dialogue is spot on, it's also funny. I'm still laughing when I think about Carolyn telling Eve she can have two people, but she should make them small. There isn't a single character not to like on Killing Eve. Eve brought her former coworkers to her new assignment. Could she be any more classy and loyal? She is the complete opposite of Villanelle. But watching Villanelle isn't an unpleasant experience because trying to understand her seems like time well spent. What would make an assassin put so much work into their kills? She's positively gleeful at the thought of putting together the plans she has for her marks and even uses her short-term work to describe herself to people she meets in her life. Villanelle must have planned to kill her new "boyfriend" Sebastian eventually since she told him she was a perfumer. That was only going to be a temporary gig to kill the mark she didn't even have the authority to assassinate. I watched this particular episode twice, and the second time around it was so sad seeing Sebastian's excitement at meeting t..
