American Horror Story: Freak Show Ep 9 – Tupperware Party Massacre

Warning – contains spoilers for previous episodes!

Yep, so this week it’s the little-known sequel to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, terrorising kitchen suppy sales… well, maybe not, but even more than last week it’s a title that brings more dread than a tolling cloister bell!

 

American Horror Story - Freak ShowIt’s not a good week for Jupiter’s equivalent of Desperate Housewives, as what should be an entertaining gathering with storage products on sale and other, er, benefits, becomes memorable in more than one wrong way. And as the concept of separation becomes more real for Bette and Dot, do they both want to go through with it?

Arrow 3×09 – The Climb

arrow-the-climb-0261b-114473The modern-day tv trend of shows splitting around fixed events such as Christmas, etc, has given many the opportunity for a mid-season finale, gathering together the various threads and building to a big climax and cliffhanger bridging the gap to the second half of the season.

Following Sara’s departure at the end of series 2, her return at the beginning of this season was surprising by virtue of its suddenness, and perhaps a little rushed to enable her subsequent death to seed the plot arc for the first few episodes. (more…)

Doctor Who – The Early Adventures 01×03 The Bounty of Ceres

Ceres, the tiny and unforgiving lump of ice and rock that hangs between Mars and Jupiter. Years of travel from Earth, it’s no place to live, and it takes a special type of person to cope with Ceres’s harsh environment. The crew of the Cobalt Corporation mining base thought that the only problem they would face inside their complex was boredom, despite the deadly environment outside. But danger isn’t just outside, and systems vital to their safety are failing as the planet starts to force its way in. Their only hope of survival may be the three stranded strangers who have mysteriously appeared – but Steven, Vicki and the Doctor are in just as much danger. Together they must fight a foe they can barely comprehend to survive.

New Items From Lovarzi

Lovarzi Fifth Doctor JumperIts that time of year where many of us are panicking over those last minute Christmas gifts.  And with the colder weather coming in, Lovarzi are here to help out with their latest offerings.

As a proud owner of their Tom Baker (series 16/17) scarf I’m a fan of their replicas, and as a child of 80s Who, its pretty exciting to see the Fifth Doctor’s cricket jumper (the original series 19 and 20 version) added to their range.  While I’ve not got one yet, Eddie’s speaking highly of his.

Lovarzi TARDIS ScarfAnd for anyone who’s in the market for a more traditional length scarf, they’ve also released their new TARDIS design scarf  available in blue, grey or a red and blue variant that to my eyes nicely evokes Tom’s series 18 scarf.

The Flash 1×08 – Flash vs Arrow / Arrow 1×08 – The Brave and the Bold

flash-arrow-crossover-episode-logoIt’s long been very much a comic book tradition to have characters from otherwise independent books crossing over to meet up for a particular reason, whether it’s Batman visiting Metropolis on the trail of a case, or Superman visiting Gotham to ask Batman for detective help. It’s an opportunity for us to see ‘how the other half lives’.

However, once properties are translated to television and spread across the TV landscape, it’s much rarer for crossovers to happen. Those with longer memories may recall one of the few such examples being The Six Million Dollar Man crossing over with The Bionic Woman, noteworthy due to it even traversing two networks.

With Arrow and The Flash sharing a network and production teams, a crossover was practically inevitable – we’ve already had Felicity pop over for a visit, and The Flash was originally spun out of Arrow. (more…)

American Horror Story: Freak Show Ep 8 – Blood Bath

Warning – contains spoilers for previous episodes!

Uh oh, that’s an ominous title isn’t it – doesn’t bode well for our characters given the already high bodycount this series!

Suspicions have been running high in the extended family of the carnival recently, and in the wake of Ma Petite’s disappearance they start to boil over with Ethel’s view of Elsa really shaken, and an explosion seems inevitable.

Meanwhile in the Mott household, a concerned Gloria airs some of her concerns about Dandy following his descent into violence in a therapy session, but is her protectiveness of him at the same time as allowing others to know of his madness a recipe for disaster?

And as the troupe sees a new addition in Barbara aka Ima Wiggles (Chrissy Metz), are we heading for a horror trope of late-in, soon-out?
