Warehouse 13 5.05: “Cangku Shisi”

[Note: The following review contains spoilers for all aired episodes of Warehouse 13, including the most recent, “Cangku Shisi”.] I had read that most of the big, dramatic, epic, climactic, season-finale-type stuff for this season of Warehouse 13 would be taking up place in the penultimate episode, in order to leave room for a more gentle goodbye in the finale, and boy, did it ever!

Warehouse 13 5.04: “Savage Seduction”

[Note: The following review contains spoilers for all aired episodes of Warehouse 13, including the most recent, “Savage Seduction”.] After last week’s emotionally charged episode of Warehouse 13, this week delivers what very well may be the show’s final (sigh) all-out comedy romp, a hilarious, lighthearted free-for-all that balances out whatever epic darkness is coming next week with some very welcome fun,...

Once Upon a Time 3.20: “Kansas”

[Note: The following review contains spoilers for all aired episodes of Once Upon a Time, up to and including “Kansas”.] Each week lately, I emerge from the latest episode of Once Upon a Time legitimately gobsmacked and a bit bemused. Did they just–? They didn’t really actually–? Oh, but they did. I’ve repeatedly mentioned throughout these reviews how impressed I’ve been by how quickly the...
