Dear DocBlogger:

Something’s changed and my dear, sweet girl has been replaced by a completely different, dare I say “evil,” twin. How can I get her back before it’s too late?

Switched in South Carolina

Dear Switched:

Talk to her. Help her through it. But keep an eye on her in case she shoots you in the back.

When I saw the teaser for Zygon Invasion last week, my first thought was “How are they going to bring my beloved Osgood back from the dead?” Silly me, this is Doctor Who, where the dead are recycled on a regular basis and the points don’t matter (stealing that from Who’s Line Is It Anyway, in case you were wondering). Regardless, Osgood/Kate/Unit versus the red sucker Zygons is a ton of fun. And Evil Clara, you are a thing of beauty.

Nothing in life is a sure thing. When your course takes a sudden, unexpected turn, you can either embrace it or fight it and be left behind. 

**** NEWS FLASH – SPOILERS AHEAD ****

Team Flash is frantically trying to find a way to stabilize the Firestorm Matrix within Stein (Victor Garber) before it burns out his body. Cisco (Carlos Valdes) is able to rearrange Wells stabilizer, which helps, but it’s just a temporary fix. They need to find someone with symptoms of the Firestorm Matrix gene mutation caused by exposure to the particle accelerator explosion, who can then merge with Stein and take over for Ronnie.

Dear DocBlogger:

First he saved me and then he abandoned me for so long it felt like an eternity. But now he’s back. I want him to apologize and beg me to go with him, but he won’t. He’s stuck in the past and doesn’t see the real ME.

Furious in Florida

Dear Furious:

If you’ve changed, chances are he has too. But perhaps this one just isn’t meant to be.

Well kids on the outset, The Woman Who Lived, sequel to The Girl Who Died, seemed like the most traditional episode so far this season. While it didn’t offer the jaw-dropping stylistic changes of the previous two episodes, it instead gave us an opportunity to see the Doctor argue with himself through the character of Lady Me/Ashildr and basically hold himself accountable for his crappy behavior over the current and last season. I believe this was a turning point for our Doctor, who had begun the journey of remembering himself in The Girl Who Died and finished it as a lesson to be taught back to Ashildr in The Woman Who Lived.

One never knows to what extreme we will go to protect our family, blood or otherwise, until we are put to the test. 

*** NEWS FLASH – SPOILERS AHEAD ***

The Flash/Barry (Grant Gustin) and his team find themselves in a quandary, when Lisa Snart, AKA the Golden Glider (Peyton List), seeks them out to help find her brother Lenny/Captain Freeze (Wentworth Miller), who has been kidnapped. Needless to say, it’s hard for them to not believe this is nothing more than a trap. Why would a known felon and enemy of The Flash want anything more? After a little arm twisting, in the form of quilt, Lisa reminds Flash that he owes Lenny for saving his life.

Dear DocBlogger:

I’m getting worried. He used to be so much fun, always joking around, but now he’s moody and anxious about following the rules and not making waves. What should I do?

Worried in Wyoming

Dear Worried:

Remind him of who was in his “former” life, then be strong and hold him to the mark.

In the words of Penny from The Big Bang Theory: “Holy crap on a cracker.” This little episode was just doing its thing, being all formulaic Doctor Who, and then “wham!” I mean I was on my feet and yelling at the screen when 10’s face lit up my TV and Donna’s voice came pleading behind him. And then there it was, Capaldi’s Caecilius (yes, I looked it up) from Fires of Pompeii, and I thought “O.M.G. they’re actually talking about it?!” I couldn’t believe that Moffat was dealing with the elephant in the room from the beginning of Capaldi’s reign – the fact that he played another character in a previous episode. And I thought the Doctor talking directly to the audience was shocking. Truly, this season is going to kill me.

#5: Bounty Hunters, in Space!

This show is just that, bounty hunters in space.  And it’s rad as hell. Action, adventure, intrigue, spaceships, flashy weapons, mind control, heart; this show has it all.  It’s fun and campy, but avoids being cheesy or too predictable.  The world building is phenomenal, the societies encountered feel really fleshed out.

Killjoys are neutral bounty hunters that work as teams to apprehend criminals across “the Quad”, a quaternary planetary system on the brink of a class war.  Killjoys are able to go where others can’t in pursuit of their bounties and loyalties are tested when “The Warrant Is All”.

Creator Michelle Lovretta, who was a writer and producer on Lost Girl, and Executive Producers David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, both EPs on Orphan Black, are the team behind this show, and the majority of the reason I was stoked for it to come out.  I see a lot of similarities in the three shows; strong female leads, charismatic supporting cast, deep friendships between the characters that feel authentic from the very beginning.

5-1

This episode focused on Chanel’s Halloween bash as she puts together a Pumpkin Patch. As a whole the episode reflects Chanel, as a character in almost every way. From beautiful lighting, scenery, cinematography.  And the focus moved to the ranks of Chanel as the sisters schemed together and began to pull apart. This was definitely more of a serious episode… well, as serious as Scream Queens can get anyway.
