“Shadow of Death: The Book of War”
April 17, 2018
Black Lightning concluded its freshman season tonight and the questions on everyone’s minds: Will Black Lightning recover from his injury last week? If so, will he recover in time to be useful in a final fight? Will Henderson discover his bestie’s secret identity? Will Whale survive and thrive? Will Proctor and the ASA? Will Lynn and Jennifer embrace that which Anissa and Jefferson already have?
Every single one of these questions is resolved tonight so sit back, relax, and enjoy our deep dive recap & review of the Black Lightning season finale, “Shadow of Death: The Book of War” … after the jump (warning: spoilers!!)
Black Lightning gives us its Season 1 finale and I’m sure it’ll be troubling and leave us wanting answers in Season 2. Elsewhere, Legion holds our Top Pick of the night because we can’t get enough of this show. Other interesting choices tonight include Shadowhunters (has this show become too focused on Malec?), Rise, NCIS, The Flash and a new docu-series from Nat Geo on the story of the Hitler Youth.
Supergirl returns to your TV tonight while Scorpion takes its season final bow. In between we’re watching The Terror, The Crossing and Good Girls!! Mondays, more choices than you know what to do with …
“The Resurrection and
the Light: The Book of Pain”
April 10, 2018
This episode turned things on its head. Going into next week’s season finale, things are not great for Team Pierce and the bad guys are definitely ascendant. In a classic God giveth and God taketh away, just as Lynn and Jefferson were getting their shit together, before the hour is out, its all fallen to pieces. We are greeted to the return of a Milli Vanilli-looking cosplayer and Tobias and Syonide make a case for their own deranged Rom Com spin-off (which, to be clear … I would totally watch).
Less talk, more action so check out our Recap & Review of Black Lightning‘s “The Resurrection and the Light: The Book of Pain” … after the jump (beware of spoilers)!
Its Friday the 13th so you know crazy things will happen today. Hopefully, by the time you sit down for TV tonight, things will have simmered a bit. Here are our Top Choices for the evening: MacGyver and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. A pick for the whole weekend? Binge the first season of Netflix’s reboot series, Lost in Space!
Thursday night has some really solid offerings to watch led by new Arrow, and all of the 8p shows: Siren, Supernatural, and Gotham. The end of the night isn’t great but you can watch something you taped earlier …
“Black Jesus: The Book of Crucifixion”
April 3, 2018
Tonight was a rare Black Lightning episode where we end in a good place but we take a couple of shitty turns to get there. We have a nice moment of redemption, “a good guy finally wins one” moment, and my dislike for Fowdy grows to ginormous size.
Without further delay, our (long overdue) recap and review of Black Lightning‘s episode, “Black Jesus: The Book of Crucifixion” … after the jump (beware of spoilers)!
This is a sad day for us here at PCR because its out first Wednesday without The Magicians but, we must soldier on. Tonight kind of treads water until 10p when we’re excited for new Krypton and The Americans (which we’ll watch later on). At 9p, the season premiere of The Expanse. Before all of that? Harry Potter: A History of Magic – I have no other description but that’s totally enough for me.
Hey, Hey Tuesday, what’s shaking? At 8pm tonight, you should tape both of the shows we recommend below and watch them later. Why? So you can listen to Pop Culture Mike on TV Talk, hosted by somanyshows.com at: https://somanyshows.com/sms-on-air
We have new Shadowhunters and the return of The Flash at 8pm; Black Lightning, Rise and an “We’re Honoring Elton John” special at 9pm; and Legion at 10pm – Our Top Pick To Watch Tonight!
