‘True Blood’ season 7 spurts out its 2nd episode of the final year, “I Found You,” as Team Sookie investigates a nearby town left behind by the infected vampires, while Lettie Mae continues her search for Tara, and the Bon Temps townspeople form a vigilante mob to deal with the growing threat.
As Korra's ship enters Ba Sing Se airspace, Tenzin warns her that the Earth Queen can be... a prickly personality to work with. A glimpse of the city's three sectors, ringed with a serious of walls, tells us exactly what we need to know about this woman. We might as well call her Prince John; Modern Ba Sing Se is a socioeconomic hell hole, the poor starving on the fringes while the Queen and other royalty live it up in the center. Traveling the radius of the city is a sharp bit of visual info from director Ian Graham. Studio Mir, the studio behind 'Legend of Korra,' is up to the task.
Since their big break up at the end of Book 2, Mako and Korra have become the two friends who dated in high school and still can hang out at the local bar whenever they're both around. At least, Korra thinks they are. She's closer to her casual friend Asami than she's ever been before — that happens in post-college years too — but when it comes to Mako, she's under the impression that their relationship can settle back into “just friends” like the days before they took things romantic. But can it? Korra hasn't been around and neither has made efforts to keep in touch. They're friends on Facebook, but they're like Mercury and Pluto emotionally. What makes Korra giggle makes Mako want to keel over and die. He's part of Team Avatar, but maybe he shouldn't be.
The title of Book 3's premiere, “A Breath of Fresh Air,” is quite literal. Book 2 was dense and hasty, Konietzko and DiMartino pulling off a complex arc with only 13 half hour episodes. The response is a season opener that takes time to survey the scene and basks in the unbroken camaraderie of old friends. The episode takes an essential beat to cement itself in the perspective of its protagonist and her closest confidants: Team Avatar.
'24: Live Another Day' has entered its final act and things couldn't get crazier. Last week's episode saw the President of the United States seemingly sacrifice his life to appease a vengeful terrorist. How do you top that? Well, this episode certainly does go for it.
‘Falling Skies’ season 4 rains down its 1st episode of the year with the season 4 premiere “Ghost in the Machine,” as a vicious attack scatters the 2nd Massachusetts, placing Tom and others in a Skitter-controlled ghetto, while Matt languishes in a reeducation camp, and Ben discovers a shocking evolution for the ever-mysterious Alexis (Scarlette Byrne).
Last year's ‘Falling Skies’ finale “Brazil”
'24: Live Another Day' is officially two thirds of the way through its 12-episode run and the pieces are being moved into place for a crazy finale. Last week's episode was one of the series' high points, but what about this week? Does it top Jack's explosive car chase through the streets of London? Does it even try? Read our exhaustive recap and review to find out!
