Shadowhunters - Lost Souls - 3.11 - Review & Recap

ShadowhuntersI am really excited for Shadowhunters to be back. The episode after the hiatus was emotional as everyone was mourning Clary (Katherine McNamara), and the use of their memory flashes helped to convey that. Dominic Sherwood especially did a spectacular job in his mourning as Jace, so devastated that he doesn’t even get any hope from Luke (Isaiah Mustafa)’s suggestion that Clary may still be alive.

Obviously, it wasn’t a surprise that Clary was alive, nor that she was with Jonathan, but I did enjoy McNamara’s scenes with Luke Baines, especially the way she held her own. However, I’m not sure her plan to walk out into the middle of the snow in Siberia with assumedly no stele was a very smart one.

The scenes with Magnus (Harry Shum Jr.) and Alec (Matthew Daddario) were sweet, with Alec trying to convince Magnus that losing his magic wasn’t everything. Their interactions with Madzie (Ariana Williams) were also cute, especially Alec reading to her.

The Walking Dead - Bounty - 9.11 - Review & Recap

The Walking DeadWhile I sometimes struggle with the show each week, this one was a pretty good episode, though a bit slow. Most of the scenes with Ezekiel, Carol, and Jerry were unnecessary, other than the stuff with the charter. They could have just made a comment that they got the bulb. However, I can’t say they weren’t enjoyable. I especially always love seeing Melissa McBride. Jerry of course was also a lot of fun like always, though I’m not sure it was worth risking their life twice for the bulb.

I also worry about Jerry. I love seeing him happy and with a family, but no one has died in a while, and a lot of times once people are settled it spells the end.

As for the storyline with Alpha, I have mixed feelings. Overall, it’s nice for once to see things go as planned for the group, but at the same time, not a whole lot actually happened. As Alpha said, “No conflict.” I am really enjoying Samantha Morton as Alpha though.

Advance Preview: The Magicians Returns for Season Four Tonight on Syfy

The MagiciansIn the third season of The Magicians, magic is gone, and everyone is left powerless, except for Julia (Julia Maeve). After embarking on the quest for the seven keys, the students get what they need to restore magic to earth, but are stopped by Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley), who destroys the keys, not wanting magic to return. However, luckily, Julia is able to use her magic to stop Alice and remake the keys.

As they are about to restore magic once and for all, inserting their keys in the fountain, Gavin (Daniel Nemes), the traveling librarian from the Order, Irene McAllister (Jaime Ray Newman), and Dean Fogg (Rick Worthy) show up to stop them. Gavin attaches the siphon on the well spring to divert magic to the Library, so they can control who uses it. Fogg was involved in the deal with the Library and Irene to make it happen, in exchange for the lives of the students, and uses his potion to erase their memories and give them new magic-free identities as protection. However, Alice is not included, as she is arrested by the Library on backing out of her deal.

Blu-ray Review: First Man - An Impressive Look into Neil Armstrong's Life and Achievements - Out Now

First ManThe film First Man is based on the book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by James R. Hansen. It tells the story of Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) and his work in the space program and the decade leading up to the first manned mission to the moon, the famed Apollo 11.

The film focuses on not only Armstrong’s heroic achievements, but also his life and more private moments that most people don’t know about.

Although the film from Steven Spielberg, directed by Damien Chazelle, looked beautifully done from the trailers, I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect, as this isn’t normally the kind of film I would watch. However, I’m quite glad that I did.
