“Heroes and Morons”
January 17, 2018
Following last week’s meeting with the Great Cock, the Epic Quest began in earnest tonight with Eliot and an unpredictable traveling party setting sail on the Muntjac, while Quentin, Julia, Josh and some reluctant add-ons try to track down Mayakovsky’s batteries here on Earth.
Fun fact, a muntjac is a deer. That’s not really fun but writer of The Magicians, Sera Gamble, confirmed that the muntjac is a type of deer that exists both on Earth AND in Fillory, and that IS a fun fact. Recap full of spoilers … after the jump!
Wayward Sisters finally arrives tonight via Supernatural, so its a great time to be alive. Also, Arrow returns from its Winter hiatus tonight to find Team Olliver still broken but the threat from Cayden James persisting …
This afternoon, NBC released the first handful of photos for Part 1 of the 2 part season finale of The Brave. If and when they release more, we will update this post but in the meantime, here is your First Look at “Close to Home, Part 1,” airing on January 22, 2018.
The pictures don’t reveal much but here is the episode description: “When an unlikely suspect is involved in hacking a U.S. submarine, Dalton (Mike Vogel) and his team stumble upon a piece of Patricia’s past. With national security and lives at stake, Patricia (Anne Heche) heads to Turkey to confront one of her most epic demons. Also starring Tate Ellington (Noah Morgenthau), Demetrius Grosse (Ezekiel “Preach” Carter), Noah Mills (Joseph “McG” McGuire), Sofia Pernas (Hannah Rivera) and Hadi Tabbal (Amir Al-Raisani). Guest Starring James Tupper (Alex Hoffman), Chiara Aurelia (Verina Curtis), Salena Qureshi (Esma Reis) and Marc Crumpton (Victor) .”
Tonight is about the return of The Flash and the series premiere of the highly anticipated Black Lightning. The newest addition to the DC-Arrow verse looks like a solid entry and expect us to be recapping it here at Pop Culture Review.
After the heart pounding rescue operation of Jaz in “Desperate Measures,” The Brave throws us right back into the thick of it tonight with “Grounded.” Jaz is forced into some introspection while Hannah gets to stretch her operational legs. And Noah? He gets to play big boss while Campbell remains out on suspension.
Another great episode featuring the crisp dialogue, unexpected humor, stellar action sequences, realistic military presence, and unbeatable character beats and interactions that rival the best things on TV.
If you’re prepared for spoilers, then grab your pork rinds and come with us as we revisit “Grounded,” episode 111 of The Brave. After the jump …
Heroes and Morons, episode 2 of Season 3 of The Magicians, airs this Wednesday, January 17, but we are taking a First Look at the episode photos TODAY as well as an amazing trailer telling us the story of “The Tale of Seven Keys.”
The Brave returns with another new episode tonight; prepare for some fallout from last week’s daring rescue of Jaz. Elsewhere, the epic Season 1 finale of The Gifted (2 hours worth!)’ the return of Supergirl from hiatus and new episodes of The Good Doctor and Scorpion.
We love Friday TV because we love MacGyver and Marvel’s Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. but otherwise, we struggle to fill the night. So, we are going to give Taken a chance and see what happens. Otherwise, not much to look at here, friends.
