Marvel’s The Punisher: Rage, Vengeance and PTSD!

Netflix’s latest Marvel series, The Punisher, is definitely not for the faint of heart. It’s a bloody, gory tale of reawakening and vengeance – in which Frank Castle (Marvel’s answer to Don Pendleton’s Mac Bolan novels) learns that he may have killed off the personnel who murdered his family, but they were just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

In fact, their deaths came about as a direct result of unsanctioned CIA black ops in Afghanistan – in which Castle played an unwitting part.

The Good Place: Philosophical Comedy Continues to Be Awesome!

THE GOOD PLACE — Pictured: “The Good Place” Key Art — (Photo by: NBCUniversal)

The first season of The Good Place was brilliant just as a show about four people who got into The Good Place by mistakes and were trying to become better people to prevent their Neighborhood from falling apart – and then there was that season finale. Michael turned out to be a demon -practicing a new kind of torture.

Season Two seemed like it could present some problems if it ran a variation of that set up -instead, it gave hundreds of variations where Elinor and even Jason at one point figured out they were in The Bad Place.

Now, with the boss having warned Michael (Ted Danson) that reboot 2 (in reality reboot #802) is his last chance – and Janet (D’Arcy Carden) is causing the Neighborhood to glitch because she’s still in love with Jason.

Kevin (Probably) Saves The World with a Little Help!

Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (ABC, Tuesdays, 10/9C) is a quasi-faith-based series in the vein of Twice in a Lifetime or Touched by an Angel.

Its premise is that a ‘Warrior for God’ appears in his life – through the device of a meteor crashing near his temporary home – and informs him that he is the last of the righteous (36 righteous souls who keep the Earth away from dystopia) and that he must find 35 more. Problem is, he is not righteous – not at all, not at all, not at all.

The Mayor is an Exuberant Political Party!

The Mayor (ABC, Tuesdays, 9:30/8:30C) is a show about a naïve outsider, a talented but unknown rapper, who runs for public office in order to promote his album – and wins!

His strategy? To say outrageous stuff and call bull$#! when the incumbent lapses into political bafflegab.

Gotham Scares Up a Solid Fourth Season Premiere!

Gotham (FOX, Thursdays, 8/7C) opens its fourth season with some intriguing developments – crime is down in Gotham city and the Penguin is leveraging that in a unique way as he prepares to open his new club, the Iceberg Lounge.

In a dark alley, Bruce Wayne is stepping up his efforts to make the city even safer.

The Orville: Earnest and Optimistic But Not That Good!

If you’re expecting FOX’s The Orville to be to Star Trek: The Next Generation what Galaxy Quest was to Star Trek: The Original Series, you will be disappointed.

Rather it’s like a tenth generation VHS copy. Squint and you can see TNG characters in the faces of The Orville’s crew, and the plots are reflections of the second Trek series – reflections being the operative word.

Marvel’s Inhumans – The IMAX Experience: Big Screen, Yes; Big Thrills, No!

MARVEL’S INHUMANS – Medusa (Serinda Swan, Maximus (Iwan Rheon), Black Bolt (Anson Mount) – ABC/Marvel.

Marvel’s Inhumans was shot with IMAX cameras, so it doesn’t look like a typical pilot blown up to IMAX – with all the small screen inadequacies painfully apparent.

Instead, everything feels the right size, but the CG sets (the city of Attilan on the dark side of the moon) lack weight – which wouldn’t matter so much if the script was better and the acting of widely varied quality.

The Defenders – Street-Level Avengers!

Netflix’s Marvel Super-Series the Defenders brings together four people who should never be in the same room together. That’s the same strategy that worked for the MCU’s The Avengers, but set in smaller, more personal ways.

It takes until the last ten minutes of the third episode for Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to come together, but it’s a powerful meeting that is nicely set up by showing the individual paths that lead them into that situation.

Stitchers Sets Up Third Season Finale with Murderous Twist!

Kill It Forward, the penultimate episode of season three of Stitchers (Freeform, Mondays, 9/8C) is one of the more diabolically twisted episodes to come from the show’s creatives.

When Kirsten refuses to work for Maggie if she can’t see her mother, Maggie makes her a deal – do this one last stitch and she’ll tell her where she is. But the case turns out to be somewhat more convoluted than anyone could have expected.

Stitchers – Memories Are Made of This!

STITCHERS – “Paternis” – KYLE HARRIS, BRIAN MCNAMARA – (Freeform/Tony Rivetti)

The third season of Stitchers (Freeform, Mondays, 9/8C) has had its share of surprises – not the least of which was Cameron and Kristen finding out where her mother was being kept (not to mention that a big reason the Stitchers program exists is to find a way to save her).

This week’s episode, Paternis, delves into the pasts of the show’s main characters – Cameron, Kristen, Linus and Camille.
