What We Do in the Shadows Review: Nandor and Guillermo's New Dynamic

The second season of FX's What We Do in the Shadows kept its winning record going with another hysterical episode that was able to build upon a number of the season's storylines in-between the laughter. As always, the series continues to show you can be "extra" and funny at the same time, and it will […]

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Finale Witchbomb Reignited Our Faith

The season finale of Motherland: Fort Salem was a perfect lead into the second season for the recently-renewed Freeform series. Many questions were answered, with some of those answers leading into some rather interesting new questions (and concerns). "Witchbomb" ended up being a silly string can of surprises: some more predictable than others, but still […]

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Review: Coup Saves Its Best for Last

This week brings us a new episode of Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem and while it finally emphasized the sense of urgency, it also left me wanting more in a sense that it felt like there were some things missing that I needed to make it a satisfying watch. However, maybe because there is so much […]

This week's episode of Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem continued right where it left off, packed with action and showing just how far our witches have evolved with their training.

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Up is Down Has A Very Raelle Problem

This week's episode of Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem sparks up something very important that I need to address: viewers need to start having a serious conversation about Raelle (Taylor Hickson). Her petulant character continues to take the attention away from the matters at hand and distracts from the storyline with no real character development. While […]

What We Do in the Shadows Season 2 Brain Scramblies Was a Superb Owl

This week's episode of FX's What We Do in the Shadows kept its momentum going with the season's third episode, "Brain Scramblies".

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Episode 5 Bellweather Season Review

The fifth episode of Freeform's Motherland Fort Salem was a frustrating shocker. The episode was filled with teen angst and it was saved by a very surprising and gory ending. It was an episode to give viewers more of this witches' world, their wedding customs, and more of an understanding of how this matriarchal society […]

Motherland: Fort Salem Season 1 Episode 4 Hail Beltane Review

Last episode of Freeform's Motherland: Fort Salem picked up right where it let off previously, and it was packed with lots of little details and world-building.

As fans of the franchise have known for some time now, Digimon Adventure is back but there's a slight catch.
