‘The Blacklist’ has been a very good show for NBC; so good that it spun its own unsuccessful show ‘The Blacklist: Redemption’ last year. With dropping ratings, many have gossiped about its cancellation, but with James Spader, I don’t think this show can do no wrong.
After four seasons of running the show, Raymond Resdington is still in charge, but in another dimension. The Reddington this season gives to us is broke, still happy, but he’s broke, very broke. This is as a result of the series of hits he received from Mr. Kaplan last season.
Red and Liz spend a lot of father and daughter time in the season premiere, making the show feel like it underwent a soft reboot.
The future is uncertain, and just like Liz assumed, Raymond is scared, we the viewers are scared. I just hope we’re ready for where the story takes us this season. Raymond has us believing he can build his empire back, let’s see how it goes.
PS: Even as Raymond takes time off to bond with Elizabeth, Dembe is very much on the trail of the box left by Mr. Kaplan for Elizabeth, which is in Tom Keen’s possession. By the way, Tom’s appearance at the end got me confused: too confused.
If you answers to both questions are yes, then you’ve met Prometheus (no relation to 2012’s Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel).
Prometheus was the villain to beat, a player on a whole new scale for Oliver and the other members of Team Arrow. Even though he died at his own hands at the end of the season, he won, he caused Oliver enough damage to last a lifetime. And now, its been confirmed that Prometheus, or at least a variant of the villain, will be appearing in the annual crossover event.
This year’s crossover is titled, Crisis on Earth-X, and will be a fallout between our heroes and villains around the multiverse on the occasion of Barry and Iris’ wedding. Prometheus, from Earth-X, has been billed to appear as a formidable foe for Oliver; it’ll be wonderful.
The crossover episodes have become a yearly event since inception in 2015; every year keeps getting bigger and better. After last year’s Invasion, one might be tempted to think no way forward, but this year promises to be better.
Yes, he is getting a movie, and it is titled, Oscar Pistorius: The Blade Killer. I dont know how exactly I feel about the title for now, but my rant is about how early the production is coming. The Pistorius story is a recent one; sad, if you ask me; and I feel it’s somewhat insensitive to makes film out of a sad story so soon. But then, Hollywood doesn’t really care.
The film will tell the story of Oscar Pistorius, dubbed the Blade Runner, his rise to fame as the first double leg amputee to parti ipate in the Olympics. It’ll also tell the story of his altercation with the law, as the chief suspect in the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. The court proceedings will be shown, up to the point when Pistorius was found guilty of homicide.
For a film, this production will be marvelous, and intriguing to watch. Let’s see how it goes.
One of the craziest franchises to come out of this millennium, Men In Black, hope to continue, though this time without Agents K and J made popular by stars, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.
Sony is prioritizing this spinoff, hoping to ride on the existence love of the franchise/universe. The studio has suffered so much loss in recent time from almost all their properties, including the Spiderman movies before Homecoming, hence the need to fall back on something that works. The new MIB movie, which hopefully will lead to a franchise of its own, will focus on the MIB organization on a global scale and not just in the US.
Designated Survivor returns for a very much anticipated second season. The sophomore year is always laddened with anxiety and expectations, let’s hope this seasons turns out awesome.
President Tom Kirkman, as played by Kiefer Sutherland (somebody say, Jack Bauer…) is very much around and ready to lead the good people of America to greater days and victories.
Capitol bomber and main villain, Patrick Lloyd, is still on the run, but his appearance back in D.C. makes me believes his end could be closer.
Agent Hannah Wells, as played by Maggie Q (somebody shout Nikita…) found unusual help in an MI6 agent, who I think might become a love interest for her; I can’t be the only one who thinks Agent Wells needs to be bedded. Since she can’t have Kirkman, as he’s the president, married and also has killer chemistry with Emily his chief of staff, she’s in need of someone else to rough her up. Team Wells, in Amsterdam, unsuccessfully track down Patrick Lloyd. The more time Hannah spends away, the greater Llyod’s chances of succeeding against the President increases.
Lest I forget, there’s a new guy on President Kirkman’s team, and he’s smart. His name is Lyor Boone, and he’s exactly who the presidency needs around now. Even Emily has upped her game, as chief of staff, she’s learning to take charge and not let herself get overwhelmed by her personal opinions. I observed a little moment between her and Seth, which I do hope isn’t explored. What I’d hate more than seeing Seth and Emily together will be a love triangle that involves Aaron.
Designated Survivor returns next Wednesday on ABC.
This list encompasses points derived from Power seasons 1 to 4. Enjoy.
1. Black power is the in thing around the world now.
2. Sex is dope, it sells, but black sex is way hotter.
3. Having a side-chick does more harm than good to every man.
4. If you don’t take care of your family, you’ll lose them. Ask Jaime St. Patrick for more info.
5. The thug life is fun and all, but the stench it brings never leaves. Ask Jaime and Tommy.
6. If you’re working a case, you should never indulge in it. It never ends well. Ask Angela Valdez for more info.
7. If you don’t give your son the real talk about life, someone outside will. Remember Kanan and Tariq?
8. Treat your wife nicely, or another man will. Do not let her be troubled like Tasha.
9. Be cool like Tommy. Be good like Jamie. Be sweet like Raina. Survive like Kanan. Be sexy like Tasha. You can have Power if you truly want it.
Teacher/ Counsellor/ Huntress, or whichever role she’s playing on her own to further the Inukute’s mission, Monroe, is the worst character to ever appear on Teen Wolf. I tried to endure for the past ten episodes, but every time she appeared on screen, my belle tightened and I wanted to puke.
This takes me back to my resolution at the beginning of the season, the show got so bad, which became more evident with the emergence of badly written characters and horribly directed scenes. For a fantasy show, it got so unbelievable.
It might have been easier to tolerate if Monroe had died, but she made it to the end, alive. I’m so angry.
