The Flash Season One Review — TV SERIES REVIEW

Grant Gustin as Barry Allen in The Flash

Man, what a season it has been for The Flash. For a first season, I was very impressed. I didn’t know how to feel about it with it being an extension of Arrow. One show is really dark and tries to ground itself in some form of realism and the other embraces the comic-book feel. It definitely had its missteps along the way but for the most part, The Flash hit all the right notes. Continue reading

Arrow Season Three Review – TV SERIES REVIEW

Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen in Arrow

Oh, where even to start. From that first line, you probably have an idea of where this review is going to go. Maybe you don’t. This season has definitely had its up and downs but underneath it all, was there a story worth telling? That is the question I ask myself when looking back on an entire year of a TV series. The Flash has had a pretty darn good freshman year itself. But with the awesome finale last season, could Arrow still have the same quality it has had for the past two seasons? Continue reading

Arrow “Corto Maltese” — TV EPISODE REVIEW


David Ramsey, Stephen Amell, and Colton Haynes in Arrow

 Arrow has just been getting better and better as every season progresses. But the second season was so intense and filled with so much drama, I think it will be hard for season three to match it. And even though the iconic R’as al Ghul will eventually show up as the big bad this season, it will be hard to match the villain of last season. Manu Bennett killed it as Slade Wilson hopped up on Mirakuru. And this season is off to a slow start as well. Even season two started the same way, but I just hope this season gets going the previous year did. Continue reading

24: Live Another Day (SPOILERS) — TV SEASON REVIEW

Tate Donovan and Kiefer Sutherland in 24: Live Another Day

When 24: Live Another Day was first announced, I was not pleased. I had still been royally ticked off with the entire last season, including the way they chose to end it. I didn’t want more of that garbage. But what I failed to do was think on the terrific six seasons that it had (6 + 8 were the bad ones). Just like a bad breakup, you think of the bad moments and not the good ones that had you involved in the first place. But then the Super Bowl teaser came out and it had me excited for 24 once again. It was strange. Just hearing Jack Bauer’s yell had me extremely excited for the new season. I just hoped it was done right. Continue reading

Game of Thrones Season Four — TV SEASON REVIEW


“YOU RAPED HER! YOU MURDERED HER! YOU KILLED HER CHILDREN!” –Oberyn “The Red Viper” Martell

It is a fun experience watching Game of Thrones. I don’t know how far they will deviate from the books or how they will execute certain events or scenes. Honestly, I wish I hadn’t read the books so that I could go into each season with a blank mind with no idea what is in store for me. I would be shocked when someone dies. I would get goosebumps when a character steps up. And as a reader of the books, I was still worried going into Season Four. Why? Because they had just ended Season Three on one of the biggest shocking events on TV…ever. They had gotten rid of the character viewers most likely rooted for the most. Without that aspect, would the show still be able to hold the same vibe? Would it still feel like the same show? The short answer: Yes. Continue reading

The Wire: Complete Series — TV SERIES REVIEW

THIS IS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS OF ALL TIME FOR A REASON.

BY: TIM MORSE
June 14, 2014

Wendell Pierce, Dominic West, Sonja Sohn, and Clarke Peters in HBO’s The Wire

It is hard to put into words the amount of respect I have for The Wire. It is most certainly one of the most ambitious and realistic shows you will ever watch. It is a shame that it was forced to end after five seasons. There were plenty of stories left to tell and I would have loved to watch every single one of them. The Wire is kind of like a book, in a way. There are numerous characters that fill up this story and it leaves you with just the right amount of answers. Continue reading

Arrow Season Two Finale “Unthinkable” — TV EPISODE REVIEW


Manu Bennett and Emily Bett Rickards in Arrow

The battle has arrived. Slade Wilson versus Oliver Queen. It is the moment we have all been waiting for. This season has done an outstanding job of building up this villain and hyping this final encounter. But, did it pull a Smallville Season 8, where the entire season built up the Clark Kent vs Doomsday fight, only to have it last ten seconds? A quick answer to that would be…no. If this show has proved something time and time again, it is this simple fact: Arrow is NOT Smallville. This show is grounded in a little bit more realism, it acknowledges its’ own comic book nature, and it doesn’t shy away from big moments. Continue reading

Arrow “Streets of Fire” — TV EPISODE REVIEW


John Barrowman as Malcolm Merlyn in Arrow

Arrow has just been kicking ass this season. I was hesitant when they started the season, because I knew they were going to be setting up the Oliver versus Slade showdown. I was worried because I didn’t know if they had it in them to do it right. But, I didn’t need to be hesitant because they have just killed it all season. That is mostly due to the very good performances by Stephen Amell and Manu Bennett. Tonight’s penultimate episode, “Streets of Fire,” really sets things up for an explosive finale. Continue reading

Arrow “City of Blood” — TV EPISODE REVIEW

“Hey guys, check it out. I’m relevant again!” –Sebastian Blood

Coming off of last week’s shocking death, I was curious to see the tone of the newest episode of Arrow. You get the tone right away, as it starts with a funeral. With only 2 episodes to go, this episode really needed to set a tone for the final two. But did it succeed? Continue reading

Justified Season Four Review — TV SERIES REVIEW

Timothy Olymphant and Walton Goggins in Justified

Justified is one of those underrated television shows that I’m never caught up with. Hence why I am reviewing the fourth season after Season Five has already concluded. They always release the DVDs a short period of time before the new season airs and I never watch them in time for the premiere. So, now I get to review this season now, as I have just finished it. How does it hold up in comparison to the previous seasons? Continue reading
