‘Lovecraft Country’ 1×02 Review: “Whitey’s on the Moon”

2019 End of Year Lists: WTF Moments

‘When They See Us’ Review: The Rightful Anger

“I just wanted to go home.” That simple sentence has been seared into my brain and into my heart since May 31, 2019. Over a month later, and still I can’t shake it. It’s simple, not just in its structure,…

‘Black Lightning’ 2×05 Review: “Chapter One: Requiem”

“Requiem” was the perfect title for this week’s episode because there were many dead to mourn in the Lightningverse – or so it seems. The children in Lynn’s lab, Gambi, and other souls at risk in South Freeland all met…

‘Black Lightning’ 2 x 04 Translucent Freak

Anyone who watches Black Lightning could have seen the clash of ideas between Jefferson and Anissa coming ten thousand light years away. And of course “The Book of Consequences: Translucent Freak” brought it live. It also brought us Jennifer’s reunion…
