Last week on Prodigal Son, Malcolm and The Team dug into the case of the Junkyard Killer and inadvertently interrupted his work. On the family side of things, Malcolm learned that “Paul” knows all about Malcolm’s past, making finding the Junkyard Killer very personal for Malcolm. Ainsley’s ambition cost her a relationship with cameraman Jin and Jessica is at wits end, wandering her mansion with a loaded gun. At the end of the episode, Gil informed Malcolm that the FBI was taking over the Junkyard Killer investigation and Malcolm and The Team had been kicked off of it. Ruh Roh!

November 4, 2019

On last week’s Prodigal Son, Ainsley got one step closer to having her sit down interview with the serial killer father she barely knows and Malcolm got one step closer to unraveling his memories. After spending the episode searching for the station wagon used by him and his dad in a long forgotten camping trip, the episode ended with Malcolm finding the car. In the wagon’s cargo area, Malcolm located tether points that you could chain a human to and a UV light revealed the presence of blood splatter.

Last week on Prodigal Son, Malcolm spent the episode trying to prove his mother’s complicity in The Surgeon’s murders only to be convinced that she had nothing to do with it at all. But, we’re not convinced that Jessica didn’t know more than she’s admitted thus far. Too many questions remain as Malcolm tries to unravel the secrets trapped in his mind.

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!!!
