Tonight saw the series premiere of CBS’s new thriller (horror?) drama, EVIL! Quick synopsis: Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers) is a forensic psychologist tapped to work for the Catholic Church to determine whether a serial killer is possessed by a demon or just your average psychopath. She works with priest-in-training, David Acosta (Mike Colter), and Ben Shakir (Aasif Mandvi), a technical adviser who believes in his paycheck above all else. Is demonic possession real or is it just show. Is a matter of science or faith?
Grab your rosary, holy water and sacramental wine, and settle in for the series premiere recap for EVIL … BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!
Stumptown “Forget It Dex, It’s Stumptown” (Episode 101)
September 25, 2019
Stumptown follows Dex Parios (Cobie Smulders), a Marine veteran working as a kickass private investigator in Portland, Oregon (a/k/a Stumptown). Dex’s only family is a younger brother, Ansel (Cole Sibus), born with Down Syndrome. Suffering from PTSD (from her military service in Afghanistan), Dex faces a chaotic life filled with mounting gambling debt, regret and guilt over the death of a loved one, and a penchant for exorcising her demons through casual sex.
Dex Parios is brash yet massively charming. You can’t help but like her, especially that she doesn’t take herself too seriously. She’s savvy, whip smart, quick-witted, and sharp-tongued, all the while having her heart in the right place.
Stumptown is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Greg Rucka and Matthew Southworth (definitely give the series a read!). Read on for our recap and review of Pilot episode of Stumptown … BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!
BH90210 Love It or Leave It? Review
August 7, 2019
With the premiere of BH90210 tonight, America’s most famous zip code is back for an all new go-around. Before we get into this nostalgia-filled limited series, some background is necessary for you youngsters out there. Beverly Hills, 90210 premiered almost 29 years ago, on October 4, 1990. I was 12-years-old when the coolest kids from West Beverly High burst onto the scene and this show was everything. We didn’t have Twitter, or any kind of social media at all (not even Facebook), so Friday mornings in the school yard and lunchtime in the cafeteria were devoted to rehashing the previous night’s latest drama amongst the Beverly Hills kids. Beverly Hills, 90210 ushered in a new kind of television, soapy nighttime dramas aimed at teens and America ate it up.
Beverly Hills, 90210 ran for 10 seasons, ending in May 2000, and those teenagers that watched every episode are now in their 40s, with families of their own, and the appetite for 1990’s nostalgia is running high. BH90210 seizes on this 90’s fever with an enthusiastic flourish. But, is it worth the time to watch? Read on to see whether we Love It Or Leave It … BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!

Jayna and Dev stormed Zod’s compound and rescued Seg.
But, at the end of the episode, following Zod’s duplicity in promising to withdraw the Sagitari from Wegthor in exchange for Lyta’s release, Jax executed the Primus on a live broadcast for all of Krypton to see. Zod and Seg were part of the audience that witnessed this murder. Get yourself all caught up on last week’s deep dive recap and review here.
