Chicago – The key moment in “Equity” is early in the film. The main character was asked at a seminar why she got into high level finance. She paused for a second, and said “money.” The gals can be just as greedy as the guys, and their stakes in that greed can be just as exploitable.
But this isn’t about greed as much as the madness of financial pursuit. It is portrayed as an addictive high, hard to let go of no matter how much has been added to the bank account. And there are always rivals, and at that level they’ll stop at nothing to get advantage. This is a human story created by women, and not so much a cautionary tale but a lesson in the status quo. The pacing of this story is deliberate, to a fault, yet the humanity is true. There is no evolution in competition, »

1.4 A Wrath Unseen
Now that felt like the kind of episode a series can be built on.
Outcast’s previous episode diverged from its continuing story to set up a procedural template that shifted focus away from our developing cast of characters and to some extent, derailed its momentum. This week spent the entire hour familiarising us with the residents of Rome, Wv and was much stronger for it.
Megan and Mark’s All-American household now feels as if it’s populated by real people we want to know more about instead of just a meathead cop and a fusspot with an unhealthy interest in the relative consistency of her adopted brother’s stools.
Megan’s development even played satisfyingly on our prejudiced assumptions about her character. »
Outcast certainly looks the part, but underneath the tasteful visuals, is it really the quality horror it announces itself to be?

1.3 All Alone Now
The synopsis for Outcast’s third episode reads: “Kyle and Anderson confront an unusual possession”. You need only substitute Mulder and Scully or Dean and Sam for those names to see how this show could take a turn towards the procedural. All Alone Now’s freak-of-the-week structure could form a pattern for future episodes: a cold open introduces new characters and a new demon, then Kyle and Anderson arrive to daub the possessed with holy water and aggressively punch them in the head. Get the central double-act right and it’s a formula that could run and run.
A gloomier answer to Supernatural though, is a step down from what Outcast initially promised to be. Its design, direction and »
