“Into the Light” (Episode 1702)
October 1, 2019

Tonight’s episode of NCIS completes the season premiere arc.  NCIS has always loved its two-parters. Last week, we came “Out of the Darkness” and now we are coming “Into the Light.” More specifically, Ziva came out of the darkness and into the light. Speaking of our favorite Israeli, the Ziva love letter, begun last week, continues with tonight’s episode.  Catch up on the action from last week with our recap, which you can find here.

TV Recap: EVIL (Episode 102) – The Problem With Miracles …

Evil 
“177 Minutes” (Episode 102)
October 3, 2019

Last week’s pilot episode of EVIL introduced us to Kristen Bouchard, a forensic psychologist and consultant to the Queens County District Attorney’s Office. She leaves that job to join a team within the Catholic Church that is tasked with determining with whether people have experienced religious-based phenomena (e.g., possessions; miracles) or if they’re just faking it. Last week saw the Faith v. Science Team investigate whether a serial killer was possessed by demons or just a psychopath (there is a thin line between the two states). Kristen’s subconscious takes some work home in the form of a demon named George that visits her nightly in her dreams (nightmares?) expressing her deepest darkest fears including her attraction to David. On the other side of #TeamGod is Dr. Leland Townsend, another forensic psychologist, devoted to spreading evil. 

Check out the deep dive recap and review from the series premiere here. All caught up? Good! Grab a choir of angels and dive into this week’s episode of EVILBEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!

Evil
Pilot” (Episode 101)
September 26, 2019

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?
