RR’s Top Ten TV Shows Of 2018

The amount of contents yearly produced for the small screen makes it almost impossible to keep up, even for people whose full time job is watching and talking film. Notwithstanding, I did my best. It’s been a terrific year for the small screen, many classic works of art aired to millions around the globe. And, as usual, I’ve put together a list to appreciate all the shows that made me feel good.

Below is my list of TV shows that struck something in me, irrespective of genre or professional critics’ opinion.

PS: 2018 has a lot of great TV shows; and it was tough limiting them to ten. I apologize in advance if your favorite(s) don’t make the list. Do air your grievance in the comment box.

10. Marvel’s Runaways s2

Even though its a late year release, Runaways sees a vast improvement in its writing, acting and story in its sophomore year. It’s a better outing than its first.



9. The Hunting of Hill House s1

Netflix continues to be the gift that keeps on giving. I really enjoyed this horror show about a small family terrorized by their past. Even though it got neatly tied out, a part of me still wishes it’ll have a second season focusing on the same family. You can read my review here.



8. American Crime Story s2: The Assassination of Gianni Versace

Even though though it’s got a misleading title, fans can’t stop raving over the beauty that’s this year’s entry into the American Crime Story anthology, and that’s largely due to Darren Criss’ performance. We sure owe him a lot.



7. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina s1

Another Netflix offering that helped make the year better.



6. The Handmaid’s Tale s2

In Gilead, things bad things happen. And it’s up to Offred (or June, whatever she goes by these days) to change the narrative back to the saner days.



5. Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD s5

Everyone who knows me knows Agents of SHIELD has been one of my favorite shows for some years now. The shows never disappoints. It’s sad I have to wait longer for another season to arrive.



4. Marvel’s Daredevil s3

Daredevil was arguably at its best this season. A nice retrace back to its root. Which makes its sudden cancellation all the more painful.



Just before I unveil my top three, I’d list to list some honorable mentions. Please note that they’re in no particular order.

  • Titans s1
  • AHS s8
  • The Deuce s2
  • Jack Ryan s1
  • Luke Cage s2
  • Krypton s1
  • Barry s1
  • Dirty John s1


3. Westworld s2

After a wonderful first outing in 2016, Westworld tries its best to live up to the hype that its the goto show for unexpected twists and turns in timelines.



2. HTGAWM s4&5

Previously on How to get away with murder….

That’s all I need to hear to make my Thursdays. Viola Davis and the rest of the remarkable cast continue to do impressive works. Coupled with the fact that Wes is still dead, this show is definitely one of my favorites.



1. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow s3&4

Never in the history of TV has a show as silly and self-aware as Legends of Tomorrow ever existed. Whoever birthed the idea to make it this way sure has my respect. The sillier the show gets, the happier I become.




I followed a lot of TV shows this year, and it’s only fitting I liked some more than others, doesn’t mean those not mentioned are bad. As I said earlier, I’d like to know your thoughts in the comment box..

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Season 3 Finale Review

After 18 episodes, the third season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow comes to an end, and it does so in a very RIDICULOUS manner. Funnily ridiculous, if there’s a phrase like that 😂.

I’ve always known the show to be goofy, but I never knew it could go to the lengths it went in this season finale. Most surprising of all is that in its silliness the episode actually works and we get the vibe and flow with the tide the show’s become known for. 


The season started with The Legends trying to fix time anachronisms they themselves unleashed at the end of the previous season. And in their many  adventures realized the fight, this time, was truly against an ancient demon named Mallus and his human minions, The Darhks. Even though I had my reservations about Damien Darhk’s continuous reoccurence on the show I quickly moved passed those differences as he and his daughter Nora effortlessly won me over with their shenanigans. Imagine me waiting months for the epic showdown between The big bad, The Legends and all six Anansi totems they struggled to find, only to see Mallus battle a giant sized TEDDY BEAR 🐻 (Mimo)… Like, WTF!!! 😱. The scenes were hilarious though, I fell down laughing and rubbing my aching tummy 😁, maybe you’d too, who knows? 

I still maintain my stance, ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ is one of the best shows on TV 📺 right now. If you don’t agree, tell me why, or go argue with your umunna, 😎. I’m waiting… 🎤.

‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ Is Back!

 The Legends are back on ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ – third season – still as funny as ever. I for one have missed the shenanigans of the band of misfits gracing my screen. Considering how the shows in the Arrowverse have grown in complexity and story, LOT has been good, especially in its sophomore season. So, you can imagine why I’m happy.

The season three premiere spends a lot of time with Julius Caesar. A pleasant surprise considering how last season ended. The speed with which the time paradox cliffhanger was resolved was alarming, but it made sense. Rip Hunter had spent five years building a new time order, called The Time Bureau, but in ordinary time he was gone for only 15 minutes. Haha! The episode showed how The Legends adjust to ordinary lives after rejection from Rip, because he said they were non qualified to time ride now, and how they try to fit into the new world Rip has created. I enjoyed it.

So far, no central villain has been introduced, but news report gossip it’ll have something to do with Amaya in Zambesi, Africa. PS: Amaya has returned to her timeline in 1942.

One thing this episode got right was spiking my emotions, I was naturally anxious, afraid, thinking how the world would be if Julius Caesar knew too much about the future to effect a change of it for himself. Luckily, it was a one episode plot, and history was preserved and the future untampered with. Excellento! The premiere also gave us what could be shots of Sarah fighting side-by-side another female, something we haven’t seen since her time on Arrow.

I really enjoyed the episode, and I hope this season surpasses the second – I really enjoyed the second season. Welcome back Legends. Welcome back Waverider. Here’s to hoping Mick Rory and Sarah get it off this year… they’ve got mad chemistry!

DC’ Legends of Tomorrow airs on a new timeslot at 9p.m., Tuesdays on The CW.

Rinzy Reviews: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow S02

It’s the end of what has been a wonderful season – DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has been one of the most entertaining shows on air this season, and it didn’t disappoint with its season finale.

When the sophomore season of LoT premiered late 2016, many felt it was a waste of time mainly because of how messed up and all over the place its first season was. The only reason I continued with it was because of how awesome The Flash was: that was the reason I was willing to give it another shot, and I’m glad I did.

The Legends witnessed a lot of changes to effectively push the story forward. Rip had to vacate the position of captain, and Sarah became Captain Sarah; boy, did she make a good captain.

The villainous focus of the season was a band of men that made LoT’s mother shows awesome during their time there. We had the Legion of Doom – Malcom Merlyn, Damien Dahrk, and Eobard Thawne. All three men wanted something in common: to rewrite history; something only possible with the use of The Spear of Destiny. As expected, this mystery drags throughout the season, coming to a near halt towards the penultimate episode.

When the penultimate episode of the season began, all hope happened to be lost because the Legion of Doom had successfully rewritten history. Along the line, most of The Legends regain their memories and someone had the (brilliant but not so brilliant) idea of breaking the number one rule of time travel just to save themselves (The Legends); to redeem reality at least back to what we know it, the Legends have to revisit a time period they already have, damning the consequences (which turned out damning at the end).

There were a lot of things I loved about this season’s finale; in fact, there were  lots of things I loved about the season. The Legends have turned out to be very entertaining to watch. Over their two years on air, things have been very intriguing.

After defeating the Legion of Doom, the Legends are faced with the new reality that their actions had borne – the whole of present day flooded with dinosaurs.

The cliffhanger of showing the repercussion of breaking time-travel’s number one rule as the infestation of dinosaurs in modern day is more than enough to keep we the viewers continuously anticipating the next season.

How will The Legends set things right? How will their actions affect the entire Arrowverse? These and many more are questions I can’t wait to see answered.

TV Review: DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (S02 E15)

BBM: C004AA0E2 Twitter: RinzyReviews FB: RinzyReviews.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has come a long way this season, especially after a not so wonderful first season.

The penultimate S02 E15 touched on a lot of topics – religion, friendship, trust, etc. – which have been central to the series, further exploring character and plot growth that has been instrumental to this season’s success.

The Legion of Doom roaster saw an expansion in this episode, with Leonard Snart (Captain Cold) returning come back, and Mick Rory (Heat Wave) banding with his best friend in joking ranks with Eobard Thawne, Damien Dahrk, and Malcolm Merlyn. In a series that deals with time-travel no one stays dead for long; Snart’s return wasn’t a shocker, so also Rory’s alliance swap.

Heat Wave and Captain Cold.

Everyone of the villains have had one reason or the other for wanting to rewrite destiny, the original trio being well defined and understandable; Mick claimed to have something he also wanted to change and. I can’t help but think what it is. For Snart, it could be to rewrite his death so that he never becomes a time aberration.

The Legends went on a quest to retrieve the blood of Christ as the only weapon that can destroy the spear, but they lost it. Defeated on both grounds, I wonder how they’ll be prepared to defeat the Legion of Doom, especially as the episode ended with then rewriting destiny.

With only one episode to go, I wonder how the season will end. The season has been extremely entertaining, and I hope they end it right. Something tells me, Mick might die: might be the only logical thing to do since Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Millar might have a career once again in Prison Break.

LoT’s season finale airs next Tuesday on The CW.
