Review/Recap Castle | ‘Child’s Play’ (Season 7, #4)

By: Cynthia Ayala

“Castle goes under cover at an elementary school to try to find a student who may have information about the shooting of an ice cream vendor.”

  • Synopsis provided by Shazam.

I do enjoy Castle so very much.

This last episode brought out the inner child of Castle, if that was even more possible, and Nathan Fillion captured all the humor that was necessary for his role in this episode. After all, he did go undercover in order to try and figure out which child was a witness to a shooting.

Review/Recap Gotham | ‘Viper’ (Season 1, #5)

By: Cynthia Ayala

“Gordon and Bullock seek out the source of a new street drug that is killing users; Cobblepot gets deeper into Maroni’s inner circle; Fish Mooney continues to plot against Falcone.”

  • Synopsis provided by Shazam

I absolutely love how this show creates the premise to the future, as fans know it…or knew it before the new 52. Just look at this episode where they introduced Viper, a drug that gives people super human strength but depletes their calcium levels leading them to very gruesome deaths. However, it is admitted to being a prototype produced by a subdivision of Wayne Enterprises and that the finished product is called Vemon. That made this bat-fan positively giddy.

Review/Recap Gotham | ‘Arkham’

By: Cynthia Ayala

“Politicians on both sides of the Arkham district issue are in danger as the vote approaches; Gordon gets a visit from an old friend.”

  • Synopsis provided by Shazam

This was yet another incredible episode that revolves around the infamous Arkham Asylum. Anyone who has ever picked up a comic knows that Arkham Asylum is where the criminally insane go, notables like the Joker, Poison Ivy and Riddler.

Review/Recap Castle | ‘Montreal’

By: Cynthia Ayala

“As the team investigates the murder of a toy company CEO, Castle engages in a dangerous investigation of his own.”

  • Synopsis provided by Shazam

I love how Castle continues to stay light despite the drama the plot line has created with the first episode of this season.

Castle and Beckett are trying to discover what happened to him for those two months that he was missing, and he has stumbled upon a few clues that could help him. Unfortunately, after one secret is revealed another one is put up as a barricade to this mystery.

Review/Recap Sleepy Hollow | ‘Root of All Evil’

By: Cynthia Ayala

“Following a violent bank robbery, Abbie and Ichabod begin searching for a mysterious coin that may be more powerful than it seems; Irving must choose between his family and the greater good; Abbie and Jenny find their relationship tested.”

  • Synopsis provided by Shazam

Tom Mison is such a brilliant actor. I have to say, the ties-ins to the past are creatively written and drawn out. The scenes between the characters and the connectivity between the past and the present is ingenious. The creativity behind the show is amazing and so well structured that it makes the show stand out among the throng of supernatural shows.

Review/Recap Gotham | ‘The Balloonman’

By: Cynthia Ayala

“Gordon and Bullock track down a vigilante who uses weather balloons to kill corrupt citizens; Cobblepot gets a job close to a major figure in the underworld.”

  • Synopsis provided by Shazam

Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) continues to shine in each episode. Not only is that character brilliantly written but also brilliantly acted by Robin Lord Taylor. Taylor is showing the viewers the depth of this character, giving him a history and a sight into the madness that makes his character to magnetic.
