1

Doctor Bennett Doctor Who Before the FloodThe 4th episode of Doctor Who, “Before the Flood,” is the follow up to the cliffhanger episode “Under the Lake.” Both episodes were written by Toby Whithouse and directed by Daniel O’Hara. Doctor Who seems to be trying some slightly meta approaches: speaking directly to the audience; and using one of the characters as more than a fan girl, but as a representation of the audience.

Rowena confronts Olivette Supernatural Paint it Black“Paint it Black,” the 16th episode of Supernatural Season 10, focuses on our favorite Queen Mother, Rowena. It’s about time we learned more about Rowena and her past. When we first saw Rowena at the end of “Soul Survivor,” it was clear that her character was going to be interesting.

Blood moon over the Big Easy

This is a good one. We see the return of both Papa Midnite (Michael James Shaw) and Detective Jim Corrigan (Emmett J Scanlan), and perhaps learn who Sister Cedella warned Constantine about—someone close to him who would betray him. This is the last of the thirteen episodes for this season, since NBC halted production last fall. There are unsourced rumors that the show might be moved over to SyFy (with the name Hellblazer), eliciting mixed reactions from fans. But nothing one way or another has been announced—we are hoping that no news is good news.

Based in part on Hellblazer #4, also titled “Waiting For The Man,” this is one of those episodes of occult detective shows that are often the most unsettling: those in which the monster is a human. Continue reading
