Lucifer Season 3 Episode 15 Review: High School Poppycock

Who has a 16-year high school reunion? Yes, it's the little things that bother me, and the timing of that high school reunion during Lucifer Season 3 Episode 15 was bizarre. There are five, ten, 15, 20, etc., but I've never heard of a reunion at the 16-year mark. And while I'm picking the nit, Julie Gonzalo from the recent revival of Dallas was utterly underutilized. What I'm really doing here is wasting time because there isn't a lot of ground to cover from "High School Poppycock." Lucifer was still trying to determine a way to pull one over on Dad, but Devil's Block was keeping him from coming up with the perfect plan. Luckily for him, the case of the week provided him with something to keep his mind otherwise occupied and a rabbit at the end of the stick. The case was more of a focal point for Chloe. First, Lucifer connected it to her as a one-time movie star. Chloe: I know how fans can get obsessed with their idols. Lucifer: Yes, and with their boobs. Like after you did Hot Tub High School, Detective. Permalink: Yes, and with their boobs. Like after you did Hot Tub High School, Detective. Added: February 26, 2018 He's such a dear, isn't he? The more prominent connection occurred when Chloe read the author's books and fell into the rabbit hole of all things high school.

Even with the reminder from Lucifer about Hot Tub High School, I failed to consider she lost her childhood as the daughter of a sci-fi movie star. Reading the books set her off in a crazy direction, and it was with some excitement she came face-to-face with the characters who inspired the Class of 3001 novels. The best part about that was the attention Chloe paid to her appearance for the reunion. She rarely wears makeup, but when she does it's a reminder that Lauren German is a stunning woman. She is a beautiful girl-next-door type on your average day but gussied up she's incredible. The bottom line is someone was paying attention to the beautiful woman in the room for a change. And instead of overlooking her to focus on his latest scheme, Lucifer took a moment to make one of Chloe's dreams come true. Whether Lucifer's prom and their dance will spark their desires once again is a mystery, but I didn't feel like Chloe was in the way. She was interesting again. If that would continue, the show would be better for it. Amenadiel and Linda are not going to be apart long. If you watch Lucifer online you know the chemistry between D.B. Woodside and Rachael Harris is too good to deny them as a couple to the TV fandom. Frankly, I don't think anything during this hour even suggested that would be a possibility. Trixie: Mommy says that sometimes people are just scared to tell the truth. Maybe they need a little help. Maze: That's not a bad idea, Tri..

The Alienist Season 1 Episode 6 Review: Ascension

That was a big hole in the prevailing theory. That hole was the bullet hole in the head of everyone's favorite murder suspect, put there by everyone's favorite corrupt cop on The Alienist Season 1 Episode 6. So let's summarize a bit before going into detail. Willem Van Bergen left his gilded cage and now there's one less entitled pedophile in New York City, thanks to an enraged ex-Captain Connor. It's good to see that a handgun was easy to find, even in those days, for the ex-cop. So Kreizler has been right all along when he said that Willem wasn't the murderer. He wasn't an upstanding citizen by any means, but he wasn't the murderer being sought. This means, six episodes in, we're right back where we started, with basically no idea who is killing boy prostitutes. Related: The Alienist Season 1 Episode 5 Review: Hildebrandt's Starling It was a good plan that Kreizler and his team dreamed up to entrap the killer. Stevie fit in remarkably well as one of the boy prostitutes, despite being largely grace-free. I figured Kreizler was onto something with the killer attacking on holy days. Which is why I'm puzzled that he didn't kill on the Day of Ascension. Maybe he overheard Stevie telling the young boy that he was working for the police? If so, why would he have approached Stevie at the brothel later? All the trap did was prove that Kreizler's team has very little actual sleuthing skills. Sara, the one with the best police abilities, was sidelined along Kreizler. Meanwhile, Marcus and Moore were being distracted while on stakeout, then Marcus wildly fired his new gun at the fleeing killer. Even Cyrus, the most streetwise of the bunch, somehow got cold-cocked. While they may have a lot of knowledge of their individual specialties, they don't have a lot of smarts when it comes to tracking a suspect. This group may generally be consider forward thinking, but refusing to include Sara and Kreizler in their plans because she's the "weaker sex" and he has a disability? What does it take to hold up a pair of opera glasses? Everyone should be thanking Connor for un-muddying the suspect pool a little bit. However, it may take a while for anyone to find out Willem's fate. Connor and Doyle tossed him in the river, and who knows when he will wash ashore? Also, his parents and the powers-that-be think he's been shipped off to Buenos Aires. It's not like he can text when he gets there. I feel worst for Teddy Roosevelt. He can't trust the corrupt Irish cops who serve under him, and the politicians around him are concerned only with protecting the wealthy who back them. It was like Roosevelt joked in this episode during the family photo at the gala. When the photographer had him stand with New York behind him, he cracked, "That'll be a first." He's backed Kreizler's team, and Kreizler may be the only man worse than Roose..

iZombie Season 4 Episode 1 Review: Are You Ready For Some Zombies?

Blaine wasn't kidding when he said it's a New Seattle! On iZombie Season 4 Episode 1, Seattle as we knew it has completely changed, but oddly enough, much of what we loved has remained the same. It's impressive that the show managed to reinvent itself while staying true to itself and what makes it so unique and enjoyable. First off, we have to talk about Ravi's limbo state. He's not a zombie, he's still human, but he exhibits zombie characteristics every few weeks. So the good news is, his vaccination has been effective. The bad news is, what Liv has hilariously referred to as "his time of the month," Ravi experiences brain cravings, consumes brain and has to rock a streak in his hair at least once a month. What does that make him, exactly? It's an odd in-between stage between the living and the undead. This is ideal because we get the best of both worlds. Ravi is allowed to remain blessedly human for the foreseeable future, but he also gets in on the brain action every now and then. That's going to be a hell of a ride. He was a riot as a nudist, I'm sorry, a naturist. There's also the matter of how he will go about recreating his vaccine as it proves to be a success. Related: iZombie: Why Season 4 is Poised to be the Best Yet! Seattle may be in dire need of it. It will fare better than what Chase has to offer. Chase is in over his head. He's bitten off more than he can chew, and it appears as if deep down he knows it. Only three days after he made zombies public, the city was quarantined off with, you guessed it, a wall. It's a heavily guarded wall too, but a few thousand humans were able to flee, in what Peyton, Baracus and their cohorts referred to as the "Exodus." What has come about is what many of us could have predicted: vigilante groups, bigotry, rations... Seattle has become a militarized city under the control of a zombie who is solely responsible for the city descending into chaos and turmoil. Blaine: Is that a guillotine? Chase: Of sorts. It's a guillotine for zombies. Blaine: But why? We're zombies. Chase: Zero tolerance. That's our message. Blaine: Message received. Permalink: It's a guillotine for zombies Added: February 20, 2018 The reaction to Chase will be the most interesting. He's a dictator, but he's operating under the guise that he isn't. In his mind, he's being pragmatic about this entire ordeal, but he crosses lines. At some point, it will come back to hunt him. We namely saw the potential tension brewing through his interactions with Blaine and Major. Blaine is not the type of guy who responds well to being under someone else's thumb, and Chase has him by the short and curlies, as he so eloquently described it. The only way Blaine can keep his multiple businesses open and thriving is by leaking information to Chase. Blaine's conundrum when it comes to Chase won't be a moral..

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3: 7 Favorite Moments From “Pop Art Ball”

History lesson time: Studio 54 was the "IT" club in New York City that everyone tried to get into. The hot spot was a big part of '70s history. Unfortunately, some of these queens didn't brush on their past on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Episode 5. The fifth week of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 was the pop art ball. Queens brought out their inner '70s diva for a night out at Studio 54 with sickening looks that would leave everyone, especially Andy Warhol, gagging. Trixie Mattel and BeBe Zahara Bonet rose to the occasion and ended up in the Top 2. Aja failed to bring the disco heat; she was the fifth queen sent home. Also featured in RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Episode 5 was a polaroid photo shoot, a canned runway, and outfits created from scratch! Below, we picked out seven moments from "Pop Art Ball" that shimmered, shined and ruled under the disco ball. What were you favorite moments? RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 airs Thursdays on VH1 at 8/7c. 7. Send In The Horses RuPaul's Drag Race has done some campy things in the past to highlight the weekly theme. But, riding in on a giant fake horse definitely takes the cake! Watching the queens pose and show off their outfits on a white horse felt perfectly like Studio 54. The concept made no sense, but it was dramatic and exaggerated. 6. Andy Warhol We've been treated to a few moments in the past when the host RuPaul joined in on the fun. When he is out of drag, he's sometimes more willing to dress up for the part. This time, he dressed up as Andy Warhol. You could tell he was loving the look, and we loved it too. 5. Recipe For The Bottom Two Prepping for a runway look has its moments, but it's the supporting commentary from the other queens that make it a blast. When BeBe was discussing her soup for the first runway, the reactions of Trixie, Shangela and Kennedy summed up all our thoughts. ("It's just soup!") And, it led to Shangela having the best zinger of the night. 4. Aja Forgets The Past Look, we all make mistakes and get flustered in stressful moments. Aja simply couldn't keep it together and remember the proper facts about the weekly theme. However, due to the flub, it led to a few shocking moments in front of the judges and her heartfelt plea to her fellow queens. This scene was the perfect trade-off to get everything else. 3. The Fabric Didn't Stretch! Shangela had a rough fashion week on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Episode 5. Her lack of sewing and design skills were made known before on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 3, but it had been years since then, so there was some hope things had changed. Turns it...not really. Shangela not only had trouble using the sewing machine, but the fabric she picked didn't stretch and couldn't be worn. She's lucky BeBe didn't send her home. 2. Soup-er Model Sure, the canned outfits are a gimmick, but they&#0..
