This week’s Sleepy Hollow gets a little personal. A monster-of-the-week episode on the surface, “The Weeping Lady” dives into Ichabod’s personal past, as well as his current relationship with Katrina. The spouses have hit a hard patch in their relationship, but it’s unclear whether the damage done in this episode will linger.
The Walking Dead‘s second episode of the season takes a breather after it’s action packed premiere and allows Rick’s group to catch up and find temporary shelter. Of course, being The Walking Dead, danger lurks just around the corner, kickstarting an infamous comic book storyline.
This week’s Sleepy Hollow doesn’t have the excitement factor of the previous Season 2 episodes, but it’s solid enough, mostly because of it’s tie-in to the overall story. While the episode is light on plot, it does present a chilling – if predictable – tale.
The Legend of Korra‘s second episode of the season crafts the poignant tale of Korra’s recovery and disappearance. “Korra Alone” demonstrates the despair Korra feels at being isolated and useless while the world changes around her, while also offering a potential source of hope for her future.
The Walking Dead kicks off its fifth season with the most action packed premiere episode to date. At times deeply disturbing and always intense, “No Sanctuary” is nevertheless a triumph for Rick’s group (especially Carol).
This week’s Sleepy Hollow isn’t a paragon of originality, but it’s a solid episode that weaves pretty seamlessly into the overall story. The “magic coin” plot isn’t exactly new, but “The Root of All Evil” does a good job of dealing with some of the baggage carried by the Mills sisters, as well as introduces a new recurring character.
This week’s Sailor Moon Crystal isn’t quite as frustrating as last week’s. In fact, it splendidly introduces Sailor V, who has up to this point been only talked about. Despite it’s high points, the episode’s inexpressive animation and it’s unnecessary insertion of Tuxedo Mask in the last act prevent it from being an excellent episode.
Welcome back, The Legend of Korra. It’s only been a month, but it truly felt like an eternity. Nick.com kicks off the final season of Korra with a premiere that takes a look at the characters, shifting politics, and relationships three years after the end of Book 3.
Sleepy Hollow is back after a ridiculous and awesome first season, and it’s brought with it the same sense of silly fun.
Zankyou no Terror‘s ending is predictable, but that doesn’t mean it’s not effective. While all of the plot points play out exactly as I expect, the impact they leave is raw and devastating. Zankyou no Terror isn’t the game changing anime I wanted it to be, but it manages to invoke strong feelings with it’s sympathetic characters and melancholy tone.
