An interesting concept that could go so many ways, but in the end, it chooses the most ridiculous. Death Note's characters have motivations so illogical and out-of-the-blue, that even the actors seem confused.
Valerian is a complicated sci-fi cat. Like Besson's The Fifth Element, it relies heavily on style and quirk, but lacks complexity or depth in its two youthful characters.
After a disappointing last few episodes, the finale got the ball rolling again, but unfortunately it all came a bit too late. Still, some wonderful performances and very creative art direction.
American Gods takes us away from the main plot again to fill us in on the backstory of Mad Sweeney. Not a particularly rewarding or relevant episode. It's time that things got back on track, but next week is the finale...
Episode 6 sees us get back into the road trip side of things. Two road trips in fact, both equally strange, and confusing.
Wonder Woman is without a doubt, one of the best superhero films of recent years. It's popping with energy, charisma, and superb storytelling. Gal Gadot is unstoppable and a perfect fit for the Amazon princess. It took 75 years of waiting to get this character from comic to screen, but it was worth it.
Gillian Anderson is back as the truly twisted 'Media' and her many guises, including an uncanny David Bowie impersonation. A lot more of the newer gods in this episode, including the welcomed introduction of Crispin Glover as Mr World in a truly psychedelic prison break scene.
