Rinzy’s best TV shows of the season 2016/2017

It’s the month of June, a month after most of our favorite TV shows have taken a bow for the season. As expected, most networks have rolled out announcements for shows that will an won’t be returning to our screens (that’s a topic for another time). Today, Rinzy will be listing TV shows that gave him excitement week after week, shows that caused him inability to sleep because of anticipation. This is Rinzy’s review for best shows of the TV season 2016/2017.

  • Arrow (S5)

Arrow - New team

Oh! Ohh! Ooooh! My sweet sweet Arrow. Who would have every thought it was possible for a show that has lot its way for two seasons to get back on track? Definitely not me. But with the miracle of this season, I’ve learnt that nothing is impossible with regards to this.

Behind every Hero there must be a more awesome Villain. Arrow’s fifth season buttressed that point. Since the time of Slade Wilson, Arrow hasn’t received much in terms of villain’s development, until now. Prometheus is his name, the man who gave Arrow a new breath of fresh life. I enjoyed every little detail of this season, every episode. Prometheus was so good and the effects of his existence so awesome that he committee suicide to drive home his point.

  • Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (S4)


 Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been one of the most consistent shows on TV today. Since its sophomore year, AoS has consistently upped its game in a way that’ll easily make some low budget SciFi movie go to bed in shame. This year, they did it again: Bigger and Better they call it, and its because the show’s producers did their homework well with the three ppd story formula (and also because of The Ghostrider). No hard guesses why AoS is easily one of my favorites this year. It’s a pity that the long future of this show is in doubts because of ratings; I keep wondering why same people invest so much time in insane shows. Don’t answer that: I know why.

  • Feud


Anything with Jessica Lange is Okay by me. Yes! Then, through in Susan Saradon and a host of others jn a shpw self titled ‘Feud’, amd you’ve got me hooked for 8 weeks. Feud was easily one of my best choice for 2017: A time-period show based on the constant friction between two household actresses of the 20’s. Who wouldn’t love that?

  • Legion (S1)

    For as far back my memories go, I’ve been a fan of all things Xmen. I grew up loving them. But for some reason, I couldn’t keep up with Legion when it originally aired in Febrary. I recently tried it again, and gbam! Awesome. This show is arguably one of my favorite this year. Thankfully, it’s returning for another round of adventure with The Shadow King.

    Rinzy Reviews: The Fault In Our Stars

    BBM: C004AA0E2. Twitter: @RinzyReviews. FB: Rinzy Reviews.

    Release Date: June 6, 2014

    Production Studio: 20th Century Fox

    Box Office: $307.2m

    Rinzy’s Rating: 4.5/5



    Hazel Grace Lancaster, is a beautiful young woman with terminal thyroid cancer that’s now spread to her lungs; extremely positive even in the face of her impending demise.

    Augustus ‘Gus’ Waters, is a young man who’s survived bone cancer once, and had to live without the flesh around one leg. He has aspirations, dreams, and is most afraid of oblivion.


    It wasn’t a surprise that these two hit it off almost immediately. There were many things I loved about this movie, damn, this movie made me lose a tear; maybe more than one tear.

    Gus kept challenging Hazel’s ideologies, her reasons for living till her anticipated death.

    You put the thing that causes the killing between your teeth, and you don’t give it the power to kill you – Gus to Hazel, outside the group therapy home the first day they met.

    Hazel and Gus have a dream to get Author, Peter van Houten to tell them the conclusion of his book, An Imperial Affliction, which Hazel had recommended to Gus earlier. van Houten surprisingly replied Hazel’s email, and invited them to Amsterdam. Hazel wants to go, but her Doctor is skeptic to grant her permission until her mom agrees to follow. Later that night, Hazel has an episode, water had entered her lungs and made it difficult for her to breathe been with her oxygen pipe. The trip to Amsterdam is subsequently cancelled. Hazel is devastated.

    The trip to Amsterdam was possible in the first place by Gus’ doing. This helped my understanding to how much Gus loved Hazel.

    Along the way, Hazel felt the need to cause little changes to her and Gus. Her trying to redefine the nature of their relationship by saying, in order not to hurt him they’d be better off as just-friends  mirrors the popular real life issue of being friend-zoned, and how we most times we can’t have whom we want simply because they’re not yet sure they feel the same way.

    One scene  that made me laugh was, Gus’ reaction on the plane to Amsterdam to meet van Houten. Gus had perfected the aura of confidence, and it was funny seeing that confidence flee in the face of something beyond his control.


    The confrontation scene with van Houten was very emotional. The pain on Hazel’s face was clear, the disappointment on Gus’ alarming . They had done so much to get to Amsterdam, only to find out that van Houten didn’t care about them, it was his secretary/PA they had relating with along that cared. The confrontation did lead up to events that finally inspired Hazel to kiss Gus and admit her feelings for him, this led to one of the most awkward foreplay scenes I’ve seen.

    This was where the real emotional drain of the movie began. It was as though the sex opened the young lovers’ eyes to the real pains of the world they lived in – the world where cancer reigns supreme. The bests of these heartbreaking moments are numerated below.


    1. Gus tells Hazel his cancer’s returned, and it had spread all over his body.
    2. Gus asks Hazel to join Isaac in writing the eulogy for his fast coming funeral.
    3. Gus momentarily loses his humor and courage. He sobs after the incident at the gas-station.
    4. Gus’ fear about not being remembered after he dies. Hazel affirms that she loves him and will remember him, and that if that wasn’t enough for him she doesn’t know what to do.
    5. Hazel tells her parents the hard truth of life without her. Her greatest fear’s how life would be for the people left behind when she dies.
    6. Gus’ attending his mock funeral with Isaac and Hazel, and listening in tears to what they both had to say about him.
    7. Augusta Water died eight days after his mock-funeral. The cancer stopped his heart after spending his last days in pain in the ICU.
    8. van Houten attends Gus’ funeral. He delivers Gus’ handwritten eulogy to Hazel.


    The moments above brought tears to my eyes (I must confess). Big ups to the acting-chops of Shailene Woodley (Hazel) and Ansel Elgort (Gus), these two brought so much life to their respective characters, I could feel the joy in their happy moments, the pain in the times of sorrow… the scene where Gus tells Hazel about his returned cancer that has spread all over his body caught me off guard. Having not read the book, I was free of spoilers, and the movie took its time to place Gus out of suspicion, so having to reveal that he was the one who was going to die (not Hazel I had been preparing myself all through the movie for) made me scream out in pain.


    Quotes I found addicting:

    1. ‘If you want the rainbow you have to deal with the rain.’ – A post on the wall in Gus’ parents house.

    2. ‘Do you know what Dom Perignon said after he invented champagne?… Come quickly, I’m tasting the stars.’ – The Chef to Gus and Hazel at the restaurant in Amsterdam.

    3. ‘I am in love with you… You heard me… I am in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed. And that, one day all of our labors will be returned to dust… And I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have… And I am in love with you… Sorry.’ – Gus, confessing his feelings to Hazel at the restaurant.

    4. ‘A drawing of a thing is not a thing itself, nor is a T-shirt of the drawing of a thing, a thing itself.’ – Hazel to her mother, at the hotel room in Amsterdam.

    5. ‘Between the three of us, we have 5 legs, 4 eyes, 2 1/2 pairs of working lungs.’ – Gus to Issac’s ex-gf’s mother when all three attacked her car.


    The Reason For This Sermon:

    Love is beautiful; the greatest weapon of all as most say. Many say we only experience it once, others say some never get to experience true love in their life time. Watching movies like this (A Walk to Remember, Me Before You, etc.) breaks me, and I’m caught between the thoughts of if I ever want to experience true love or I’ll like to continue in ignorance to the bliss and pain such a love can cause. I’d like to know what you think.



    If you loved The Fault In Our Stars, I’d love to know, why. If it made you cry, I’ll also love to know. Drop your comments below.

    Rinzy Reviews: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    Release date: November 18, 2016
    Production Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures
    Box Office: $812.2m
    Rinzy’s Rating: 4.5/5


    J.K. Rowling takes us back into the wizarding world of Harry Potter in this wonderful installment made to exist independently and perfectly. This movie details events that happened roughly seventy years before the first Harry Potter movie; roughly in the 1920s.
    I present to you, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

    The movie starts by giving us a tiny glimpse into what the main antagonist has been doing behind the scene. After this, it doesn’t take long to show us his face, only that it isn’t his real face. More on this later…

    Many things change, and if you were a big addict of the original Harry Potter series you’ll need to keep an open mind to unlearn a bit of what you already know. I introduce to you, your new hero, Newt Scamander – British Wizard who on his way to Europe momentarily stops at New York.

    Newt Scamander works for the Department of Magic. He’s a Magizoologist, and loves magical creatures, and is writing a book about them.

    Scamander, or better, Newt, has his travel plans altered when his suitcase is accidentally swapped by a No-Maj cannery worker and aspiring baker Jacob Kowalski (A No-Maj is the American address for a non magical born person, just like Muggle-born is for the British) who was hoping to make positive meaning of his life. The suitcase is no ordinary suitcase, it is a magical housing for fantastic creatures, or beasts just like the title suggests. Demoted Auror (a hunter of dark wizards) Tina Goldstein arrests Newt for being an unregistered wizard and takes him to the Magical Congress of the United States of America (MACUSA) headquarters, with the hope that it’ll help her regain her former position. This trio form the heroes band required to solve the problem of the day.

    The main plot of the movie though confusing at the beginning became clearer towards the middle, and by a second viewing made perfect sense. I blame my poor following on being too eager to return to the fantastic world of J.K. Rowling.

    One of the things that makes this movie super-interesting is its subtle ability of borrowing ideas that made the original Harry Potter movies work, such as having a non-magic born (James) effortlessly contribute to the story-line just like Hermione did, and yet, still existing perfectly away from the Harry Potter movies shadow.

    Another thing I like about FBAWTFT are the villains; primary, secondary, and tertiary, all categories of villains made sense to me and they worked wonders to furthering the story-line. Though at this point, I know main villain of this new movie series, Gellert Grindelwald is no Lord Voldermort, I am almost certain he’ll bring his own form of beauty to the movie series, thanks to J.K.’s powerful imagination and actor, Johnny Depp’s future portrayal. Secondary villain, Mary Lou Barebone, a non-magical woman (“No-Maj” or “Muggle”) who heads the New Salem Philanthropic Society, which claims that witches and wizards are real and dangerous is a welcome addition to the movie. At first, the plot concerning her and the children of the orphanage seemed confusing at first – her beating a particular child (Credence Bareborn) inhumanely, her going about campaigning against the unacknowledged threat the magic born held for the larger public, and her fondness for a particular girl-child in her foster care; all these started to make sense when Director of Magical Security, Percival Graves became involved and sought to connect the separate plots together. An Obscurus (a dark, destructive parasite that develops inside magically gifted children if they suppress their magical abilities) becomes the main focus of the story as everyone sets out to find and subdue the entity causing mass destruction that risks exposing the Wizarding community to the No-Majs.

    At a point Newt is accused by Percival Graves of bringing in magical creatures which are illegal in the USA. This is because Percival wants to take away the MACUSA’s attention from the fact that an Obscurus is what’s causing the disruption of peace all around New York. Percival does this for selfish reason which is revealed to be that he isn’t actually Percival Graves but evil Wizard, Gellert Grindelwald. He’s almost swiftly apprehended thanks to the effort of Newt and one of his fantastic beast. It is obvious he will escape soon. As the primary antagonist, Grindelwald feels more human than Voldemort; his reason for going rogue is that MACUSA protects the No-Majs more than they do fellow Wizards; time will tell how well this will be explored.

    I liked that Percival Graves was used as a tertiary villain but later shown to be the big-bad of the series in an undercover mission.

    Primary movie villain, Credence, is shown to be as confused as someone under doubt of his/her true sexuality; Ezra Millar clearly brought out the vulnerability and pain of this troubled villain to the forefront; sadly his character was apparently killed, and may not be returning for further installments especially if his presence doesn’t further future story-lines.

    In one of my best scenes of the movie, Thunderbird – whom I thought from the trailer would have a prominent role in the movie gets screen-time to shine.

    Thunderbird steals the attention as the most awesome looking beast without a sweat.

    Thunderbird users her spectacular power to facilitate the quick obliteration if every No-Maj’s memory who had witnessed the destruction caused by Credence as the Obscurus. Hopefully Thunderbird gets more screen-time to shine. Thunderbird’s act proves to MACUSA what Newt had been trying to say all along – magical creatures are good, and can be a force for good if nurtured right.


    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a very interesting movie, and one which leans very much to the extensive mythology as created by J.K. Rowling. The movie validates Rowling’s announcement that it is the first of a larger story that’ll be told through five installments, it also lends credence to its name: a lot of beasts (creatures) were on display. With the second installment scheduled for 2018, I can’t wait to watch.

    Rinzy Reviews: TVD’s Hell

    In this week’s episode of TVD (s08 E12)  we were surprised with the return of one of TVD’s most brutal villain, but strangely, also one of its most loved character – Malachi Parker a.k.a. Kai, the man who killed his younger brother in a duel, his twin sister on her wedding night, the rest of his family, put a young woman under a permanent sleeping curse, and many other unmentionable atrocities. Yes, that guy is back.



    At the last moments of the episode, when Damon showed Alaric the weapon he believes can kill Cade, Kai surfaced, saying, Yea… sorry to interrupt, but what if I told you I have a better idea. As though that’ll make

    With four episodes before we say our final goodbyes, TVD is really taking risks like never before, and this has reignited our interests, and caused us to be on edge a little. The last time we saw Kai was in season 6 finale, he put Elena in a sleeping curse, tying her life to Bonnie’s; this act causes him to lose his head at the hand of Damon.

    How is Kai back… and what does it hold for the rest of the season?

    Hell, Rinzy thinks. Kai is back because he slipped through the cracks between Hell and Mystic Falls. Remember when Matt rang the Maxwell’s bell eleven out of twelve time? If Cade could use it to have a strong foothold on this earth, why can’t one of his prisoners also slip through.


    If it could work for Cade, it could also work for other characters… is anyone currently thinking about Katerina Petrova a.k.a. Katherine Pierce.

    Or, it could be the door Bonnie herself opened. Enzo’s death caused Bonnie so much pain that she experienced a form of magical surge. Most of us wished it was her magic returned, but as we later found out, it was her door to hell she opened; it could be possible this was Kai’s passage back to the land of the living.

    Way back in season 5 episode 15, TVD’s producers teased the idea of Hell when Katherine died but her soul couldn’t move to the other side, but was swallowed into darkness. Bonnie pronounced then that Katherine had gone to Hell because of her many evil deeds. We didn’t understand what it meant then, but now, having met Cade, the Sirens, and the almost surprising return of Kai, we know fully well that Katherine making a grand reappearance is almost inevitable.


    This also raises another question… How many evil characters from the TVD universe are in Hell?

    Truly, there are a few characters in TVD that have been so evil that they certainly deserve a spot in Hell… Markos (The s5 leader of the Travelers), Atticus Shane (The s4 Professor that wanted to raise Silas), Silas (The s5 immortal, the first of Stefan’s doppelganger), Dr. Wes Maxfield (The s5 crazy Vampire-experimenting Doctor) … etc. Though it wouldn’t make sense story-wise to introduce any of them at this point , especially with only four episodes to go, it’ll be nice if the Producers at least name drop those currently flaming the fires of Hell.


    So, what do you think about Kai’s return, Katherine’s almost-certain return, and the fact that Kai wants to join forces with Alaric (the man he killed his wife on his wedding night) and Damon (the man he put the love of his life in a magical coma) to defeat the Devil (the one who’s probably been torturing him). Comments are highly appreciated.

    Whatever theories we have would be disapproved or approved come Friday, 17/02/2017, when TVD returns for episode 13.

    Comments are highly appreciated!!!

    Rinzy Reviews: Doctor Strange

    Release date: November 4, 2016
    Production Studio: Marvel Studio
    Box Office: $670.1m
    Rinzy’s Rating: 4/5


    Over the years, Marvel has proved itself as a force to be reckoned with not just the comic book movie world, but movies in general. Doctor Strange follows in the same line as an interesting watch.


    Dr. Stevens Strange is an arrogant but very intelligent Neurosurgeon, who has an accident that causes him to lose the effective use of his hands. Dejected, he seeks for a way out of his predicament, and comes across a man who used to be paralyzed years ago, but could now miraculously walk. The man tells Strange about Kamar-Taj, a place where miracle happens.

    Kaecilius is a rogue Sorcerer, who broke into Kamar-Taj to steal a page out of a book about time manipulation. He and his followers are chased across dimensions by a powerful Sorceress called the Ancient One, but they all escape her.

    Strange is saved by another sorcerer, Mordo, who heard him ask about Kamar-Taj at the market place. Mordo brings him to Kamar-Taj, the Sanctum, to see the Ancient One, who rejects him, but later accepts him after a pep talk from Mordo. Strange begins his training in earnest, though tough, he finally starts to understand what it takes to be a sorcerer. Kaecilius attacks again.


    Kaecilius is trying to free Dormamu, a villain that resides in the dark dimension, and it is up to Strange and his fellow Sorcerers to stop his invasion.

    There were lots of things I loved about this movie, most notable are:

    1. Dr. Stranger’s back story.

    Even though this movie is an origin story of some sort, it doesn’t rub it on our faces. The pacing was good. It didn’t take years to introduce Steven Strange the douche, Steven Strange the broken man, and certainly didn’t take an eternity to introduce him as a Sorcerer. The pacing was well thought out, and beautifully executed.

    2. Powerful visuals

    Though we’ve seen one trick in this movie in Inception (2010) – the reality warping spell when Mordo and Strange ran from Kaecilius and his forces after the attack at the New-York Sanctum.


    Many other visuals peculiar to this movie I enjoyed include, the way the portals to different dimensions open, the Eye of Agomotto and the cloak of levitation in action, among many other scenery. Kudos to the Visuals Director.

    3. The comedy

    This was one very awesome aspect of the movie. The characters were funny, almost all of them knew how to crack a smile on viewers, including Dormamu.

    4. The wonderful cast and acting.

    Though there were divisions among comic fanboys when the cast was unveiled, they did impress me. From Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange, to Chinwetel Ejiofor as Mordo, to Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, these three and a few others did it for me. Benedict Cumberbatch was an excellent choice for the Sorcerer Supreme, and I must say job well done to the Casting Director.

    The things I didn’t like about this movie:

    1. Dormamu wasn’t really visually appealing enough to be appreciated as the main villain.

    2. The Ancient One didn’t need to die the way she did. She was way too awesome to die by a stab wound, for someone with powers from the dark dimension.


    In all, Doctor Strange is an entertaining movie, it wouldn’t bore you. So, if you haven’t watched it, try to.

    For those that have watched the movie, what do you think of it?

    Rinzy Reviews: Teen Wolf season 6a

    Date of run: Nov. 15, 2016 to Jan. 13, 2017
    Network: MTV
    IMDB’s Rating:7.7
    Rinzy’s Rating: 4/5


    After a climatic fifth season with the Dread Doctors and The Beast of Gervude, Teen Wolf returned to our scream last November, for the first half of its sixth and final season.

    Teen Wolf’s producers wasted no time in introducing us to the villains of the season – The Ghost Riders of the Wild Hunt – within the first seven minutes of the season, and we had a lot to chew all through the rest of the half-season story-line.

    I particularly liked the way the season started; Hayden and Liam are running in the woods, and suddenly notice the sky has green linings. They also see a car driving itself there way. On examination they find a young boy, Alex, hiding at the back-seat, he said, ‘Don’t let them take me. Don’t let them take me too,’ referencing his parents who had already been kidnapped by the mysterious villain. Further investigation into the head of the only surviving son, by Scott, showed that his parents were taken by a mysterious, tall, mouth-less male figure, cloth in black cowboy-like attire, and riding a dark-horse.


    The story carried on with the pack figuring out that The Ghost-Riders take people, and when they’re taken, those they leave behind forget everything about them. Stiles found himself taken, and the rest of the season follows the different things that happens for the pack to remember that someone like Stiles once existed in their lives. During this story we got something that had been teased since the first season of this show – Stiles and Lydia. I think this is where I’ll start my review of the season from.

    1. Stiles and Lydia’s kiss.
    Rinzy’s rating: 3/5.
    After being teased for six years, Stydia (portmanteau for Stiles and Lydia) finally happened. Everyone who’s been following this show since its first season knows that Stiles has always been obsessed with Lydia, who never really cared about him until she became invested in the world of the supernatural. They shared a brief kiss in season , but Lydia claimed it was to help stop Stiles’ panic. In as much as Stydia happening is for fan-service, I’ll like to see what they do with it in the final ten episodes of the series.

    2. The Ghost-Riders
    Rinzy’s rating: 3.5/5
    What’s a good story without a memorable villain?
    The Ghost-Riders, though captivating in their first few scenes, soon became a bore, and chore to watch. In typical Teen Wolf stile, where the vast majority of their villains do not speak (remember The Onis, The Beserkers, The Dread Doctors?) the Ghost-riders are no exception. I for one, have always loved as Teen Wolf is able to constantly re-brand itself , season after season, giving me the chance to appreciate new story-lines.

    3. The Nazi Wolf
    Rinzy’s rating: 3/5
    Probably to make the story appear full circle and connected, Teen Wolf’s producers thought it best to bring in the mysterious creature in the Dread Doctor’s lair in season 5 into this story-line. And they also thought it best to make him a teacher in Beacon High (I’ve lost count of how many of their teachers have gone rogue.) I didn’t really enjoy it. I thought his motivation for wanting to join the world of the Ghost-Riders and Beacon Hills together as weak and uninspiring.
    4. Coach
    Rinzy’s rating: 4/5
    Every scene with this man is pure bliss. Though not in any way furthering the plot, Scott’s lacrosse coach’s appearance has always been a welcome comic relief. He wasn’t around for long, but his appearance was very much appreciated.

    5. Stiles
    Rinzy rating: 3.5/5
    Maybe Dylan O’Brien is becoming too busy, that’s why this season we had too little Stilinski, and that isn’t good. Stiles has always been the heart of this show, and it would be good to always have him around going forward in the last stretch of the series.

    6. Parish Hell-Hound
    Rinzy’s rating: 2/5
    The Parish is being utilized on this show hurts me, because this is a character that has so much potential. Though the producers did a non-existent job in explaining why the Ghost-Riders were able to control him in Hell-Hound mode, every scene with him was a delight to behold.

    Over all, the season was a decent one. I’d like to see how the series concludes a lot of hanging threads of story-lines, Theo’s redemption, Malia’s mother/desert wolf, the new Argent and McCall lovers, Stydia, Derek, Issac, and Pa Gerard’s whereabouts, etc.
    Though not my best season (in terms of story-lines) it certainly isn’t my worst.

    I rate it 3.25/5
