Review Ron Hogan 6 Dec 2013 - 07:43
Ron remains unimpressed by The Tomorrow People, even eight episodes in
This review contains spoilers.
Another week of The Tomorrow People, another mediocre episode. The show has some great ideas, but the execution is poor most of the time. Even when the execution is solid, the writing is poor or the characterization inconsistent. Is Russell a master thief and martial artist, or a moron? He could be all three things, but during a top-secret mission by the Tomorrow People to break into Jed the head of Ultra's apartment, Russell ignores Cara's orders, makes a huge racket, and finds himself busted. He's able to fight off Jed and trigger the alarm to allow him to teleport away, but it turns out he's got someone hanging onto his back the whole time.

Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight No. 1
In a world were comics strive to be a higher form of literature, one comic dares to be pulp. Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight unabashedly revels in the B-Movie, late night, junked up genre. Each mini-arc will feature stories fit for flicks from the seventies, and they're starting it off with "Bee Vixens from Mars." The story follows a small town sheriff investigating a string of murders linked to bees. Is it the honey everyone seems to be enjoying so much? And why is everyone so sexed up lately? »
