Parish (2024) : Sanctuary – Season 1 – Episode 3 – RECAP


Source

Parish has not been the most exciting TV series out there and my expectations were higher than I though and that’s on me but it still at a level where you can watch an episode and kill some time without feeling you wasted your time, Giancarlo Eposito has not turn out the action men that I thought he would be and that’s on me too because most of the time he plays roles as business man or gangster not a wheel man. What keeps the series interesting so far are his friend fuck ups, Colin; has the ability to get in trouble one after another and its usually with the wrong people and so far I’m not too sure why he end up working with the Tongai.

Episode 3 is the continuation of the shooting scene at the cemetery, Shepherd “The Horse” got shot and Parish once again safe his ass, is like he is always there on the right time to safe his life or business some how and Parish takes him to the most obvious place he would, with sister Anne who is a good friend of him and even work together in the past but different than Parish she is way pass that life style, she prefer to be free of problems and been able to sleep at night with both eyes close.

I have to be brutally hones, the shooting scene at the cemetery was ok until they shot Shepherd, he falls a few meters latter and they had him right there ready to be executed and some how they get spooked by the NOPD shopper, they were just meters away and could have pull the trigger and hurt him badly but instead decided to run away scared of been arrested, if you laying in the ground like that and some one is trying to kill you from that distance they would at least pull the trigger several times to hurt you.

While everyone was waiting for Parish at home, they had an appointment to show the house they trying to sell; Parish was busy trying to keep Shepherd alive, ironically Zenzo is Shepherd head of security and until now I don’t know if he let him go on purpose alone with Parish his driver or he was just so naive, they looking of them but they all three took Perry words very light when he said some one was going to get mad af for what they trying to accomplish and control the market, on the suspicion that something happen to Shepherd, both Zenzo and Shamiso start looking for him.

Shepherd is afraid that their phones are been monitored or they looking for him at the local hospital so he want nothing to do with cell phones or hospital at the moment, Parish decided to take him with Sister Anne who he knows wont say no to him on top they have Luke with them too so that’s leverage for him. Anne in fact takes them in and get things clear form both Parish and Shepherd, she wants nothing to do with them but as in any other similar story she some how from now on might be involve or probably even snitch on Parish and I would not blame her, she knows who Sheperd is or at least that’s what she says, not sure if she only assume who he is.

When all the shooting start to happen there were no names and I had no clue who was after Shepherd until now, what looks to be a group of army guy probably mercenaries lead by Anton played by Bradley Whitford who I have seen play the villain role and he is kind of a cool villain, puts up this crazy face like he is insane and don’t give a shit all the time, people are often afraid like the guy is a psychotic, Anton is probably the guy who was supplying Perry with slaves, essentially he wants Shepherd dead for messing with his business.

In terms of context or plot, Parish does not really brings anything new to the table so most of the scenes are very predictable except when it gets to his family, that side of the story kicks in leaving many questions when the hustling and gangster side does not, as an obvious response to the current situation Shamiso, Shepherd sister; goes to Perry for some answers but the guy is just another pawn.

Its here where things get interested for the Parish story, its the mystery of how really his son died and how he is going to explain the world of shit he is in to his wife and daughter before its too late and they end up stuck like him, usually when a character gets this kind of problems things just get worst and worst, this time in the even that no body can locate Parish for the last 12 hours his wife goes to the Taxi Garage to find out he has not been there neither and find a file with tons of data about their son who seem to be dead after some car hijack, leaving the question of why this happen? was this because of Parish past life? I thought it was just a car accident but from the paper it is more than that. Parish wife Rose has now notify the police about his disappearance and will start looking for him, same guys who were questioning him the other day about Colin so the probability they had something on Colin and him has grown exponentially.

Most of the episode happens at the church with Sister Anne and after that there was not much but details like Parish been missing, not been able to show the house, no body has seen him create a series of events that make his family discover what he is in at the moment, I doubt Anne is going to snitch on him unless she has no other option in any case would be if her life is at risk and not last there is Anton who I would like more background and proper introduction of what he does for a living, at first when he shows up he is driving a crane and then he is all dress up, he is the type of Italian gangster who owns a scrap yard?

Episode one was catalog as a Pilot episode and those are usually not strong ones so many don’t even consider it as a real episode and even few times its taken away from the production but in this case episode two of Parish (2024) I would say was stronger, I still have a hard time watching Gean Carlo trying to play the role of a bad ass because lets be honest he is not look like on, even during the times of Breaking Bad he was the elegant master mind behind everything, a business man , he most likely fit into the wise old retired wheel man role who know how to deal with the BOSS and even act as a boss.

To keep things short and not spoil the entire episode, he safe The Horse ass this time, sounds funny but truth is that I still don’t know his first name. On episode two they talk a bit more about their real business, human trafficking and the job Parish pull was basically to get a back of stolen passports that most likely belong to working people who someone brought and basically enslave them.

Little by little more of Parish’s son is been reveal this time we only got a small glimpse of the accident but does feature a cop in specific who latter on goes to talk to Parish about Colin.

Episode one also ends with Parish and Colin with a lot of shit on their hands now with a dead man, not only dead but a lot of blood on his garage he knows that if things are not done right and some trail is left behind he will most likely be fucked big time and who knows if it might tied him to his past, besides Colin was part of this job.

We already know that The Horse runs a family business, there is his brother, sister and father back at home who is probably the one who started the hole thing, although Zenzo his brother use to run the show when they were in Africa, I wonder when and how The Horse took his place? and if at some point might lead to any of the three betray each other, Zenzo could actually enrage with envy and sell out The Horse to gain control of the family business.

There is an entire scene of Colin and Parish cleaning up the mess and it was a cool scene, it really makes you think how hard is to cover up something like that, all the labor and details included, besides all the cleaning they have to do to get rid of all the blood on the floor and on them because burning their clothes wont cut it and to make things worst they almost got caught by Parish secretary, took them all night to clean up everything.

There is one aspect of getting rid of the body that really look stupid although they some how have to add a risky move to raise everyone dopamine levels, Parish decides to take the body home with him and hide it on the garage freezer, his wife and daughter almost caught him, his wife was the one closer to the body when she tries to open the freezer but he put on a punching bag on lid, make no sense how she didn’t ask him to remove so she could open the freezer, it was just too obvious, that part I didn’t like at all.

To make things worst for him the local police, NOPD shows up to Parish place asking for Colin and he lie to them in front of wife and daughter, refusing he has seen Colin in the last 17 years, its weird how they looking for Colin because after getting rid of the body he was interview by his parole officer, he is an ex convict and still under Probation so makes me think he either ran away or kill them, I don’t think he was that stupid to kill them but now shit hit the fan for Parish since he will be dragged with Colin, that is what the story is all about, how Parish gets dragged back into his old life.

The Horse and his sister pays a visit to a man called Perry Lousteau, he also seem to be involve in the human tracking business, they talk about cutting the middle men meaning they will bring him all the labor he needs and even cutting his expenses to half of what it currently is, they mostly talk about servants and drivers so there is the chance that they not talking about his house but he must have some sort of business where he has if not hundreds of employees or workers probably at a farm or factory who would work for The Horse at half of the price, if not a third of what this guy Perry will actually pay for, Perry did mention that he is in but the middle man they getting rid of wont let this slide and I think that is why The Horse towards then end is involve on a shooting, I doubt they kill him in the second episode it just don’t make sense but Parish was at the wheel and got his son safe, this will put him high in the ranks and probably get him some trouble with Zenzo when he see his brother praise Parish for what he did.

Episode two did pick up the pace and I’m glad they did because if would be a total disappoint after episode one but I hope it will slowly keep improving, what really intrigue me right now is what is the story behind Parish’s son death if it happen because of old life and now he is going back to it, something I don’t like about AMC series is that they give out a big chunk of next episode and sadly I let the video run til the end since I was doing something else after I finish and heard most of whats coming up and its exactly that, Parish will have to face his wife for whats going on at the moment, most likely Colin will sell him out so it really interest me how Parish reacts, if he either go all in with The Horse crew or he tries to get out of all that trouble.

Parish (2024) : Pilot – Season 1 – Episode 1 – RECAP


Source

After watching TV Series for so long you kinda learn how to have a bit of patience with the story line specially on the first episode, some series take the first episode to present most of the main characters by telling part of their story and purpose without much going on other than then talking without much action or drama. Parish seem to be that kind of series, there was not a lot of action, you do get a few car chase scenes after all its a series about a retired wheel man but it was mostly talking than anything else, I hope I don’t have to drop it from my posts because to be honest trying to understand what to post about I have come to learn that there are some times I need to drop series and stop because they are not that interesting or there are better and new things to talk about.

Episode one present most of the main characters like Gracian Parish who they call Gray, his wife Ros and daughter Makayla who have mix feelings on how to feel about Parish son death, then on the bad guys side there is The Horse the gangster Parish ends up driving for and his brother Zenzo Tongai who is not as patience and Colin who to be honest I’m not sure for how long he is going to last, he is the one in trouble and suck back Parish into his old life besides Parish is drowning in debt.

The episode opens up with a scene from the future, even though Parish did get to drive a red Porsche Macan he is never stop by the police, this is a cool car chase that he ends up leaving the police behind, Macan GTS is very fast car that would leave behind that Crown Vic in a blink of an eye although it doesn’t show what variant Parish is driving, the character of an old retired wheel man does suit Gian Carlo Esposito with his grey hair and shades.

Source

Parish runs a luxury taxi service type, I like how his character falls into all the details of a dedicated man to his ride, this reminds me of Jason Statham back in the day when he use to play the Transporter, another dedicated driver who look after his car more than anything else. Parish is also drowning into debt between tuition, mortgage and his taxi business probably not doing so well to stay up float so he is looking for help, legally; trying to get a loan from the bank but they already know how bad his debt problems are and he might not have a long enough record of keeping this business up float, all we see at his shop might be money he made from his old days as a wheel man driving for shady people.

Source

There is Sister Anne, she works at Saint Claude Church, she seem to run either an orphanage or day care not sure, Parish goes there to talk to her, trying to take a breath from everything going on, looking for some peace and advice that holds him up from going back to his old ways. I like Gian Carlo southern street accent, its not so common to watch series develop in the south so this brings a different surrounding to a gangster type content, not New York or Los Angeles which are the most classic ones. Sister Anne use to work with him for sure, she is fully retired too and feels lucky to be alive but different than Parish she is afraid of having to go back to that life although Parish is not, this is probably understandable because he kinda make it out, build up a business out of it, not so profitable but he was able to keep his regular life while she dedicates now to the church, I don’t think there is nothing wrong with it but Parish current life conditions in his mind he might feel as a winner, like he fool his old life so going back is not so hard, he wont think about it too much WHEN the opportunity presents.

Source

Colin and old friend from his old life present this opportunity to Parish, he is with business with The Horse, a gangster from Zimbabwe who needs a driver, at first Parish obviously said no, no matter how Collin ask for this only favor but it was actually very easy to convince Parish to be honest, next day he was at Colin’s place asking for the details of the job, they could have look for another way for this to happen and don’t look this predictable, probably put Parish on a tight situation rather than just the lack of cash.

Source

There are a good amount of nice cars showing up during the episode, Porsche Macan, Cadillac CT5-V, Audi R8, Mercedes G Wagon, even if this are base models still cool cars for the naked eye, but its more impressive when the wheel man do all kind of tricks with crappy cars and still gets away.

The moment comes and Parish meets The Horse who is a very cool men, its his brother Zenzo who is ruthless and probably after his brother power, its here when Esposito does his best work at been respectful but also from the streets, showing this is not his first rodeo and he is too old to be intimidated or treat like a kid by anyone including The Horse.

I think car guys would enjoy this series the most, it is a series that has started a bit slow and for now what I get is that the main focus will be Parish struggles and conflicts with his old life and how much trouble will Collin get him in, even makes he think that at some point Colin will betray him because to be hones the hole wheel man and car chasing wont build up this series, keep bringing the cool cars, give more details on them and going full throttle when the times come and this might turn into a good series to watch because the first episode did felt a little vague, like there was missing something. There is also a lot to be develop, looks like The Horse life is not as simple as it seems, he has his own problems with his family, he probably inherit the business from his father who is asking him for cash every month.

Its only episode one and a lot of things going on although not much since everything surrounds a single mystery, ever since I saw the trailer this TV series got my attention since it has to be related with some sort of alien tech although I was not sure if its also time travel related or both??

I feel the story is a little bit crowded to start with a lot of characters, there is the main character so far Ye whose daughter killed herself after probably watching a count down same as other scientist who have been going through the same trauma but in the case of Ye she is a survivor from a revolution in China during the 60’s, a revolution mainly about science, I’m still not clear what were their demands but their leaders were after something big, trying to communicate with something out there, do they mean space? or future?

A group of friends, all scientist suffer the death of her teacher Vera, most of their projects are been shut down due to lack of results a common denominator across many Particle Colliders around the world and now one of the them is starting to see the count down everywhere she goes, the question is how, when and why would it stop or what it means?? certain only sci-fi events happen like the universe wink at you, like the starts start to Morse code all at once.

Revolution during the 60’s going on in China, looks like a witch hunt, they hunting scientist but I’m not sure if its because they teaching or believe in certain not proven or wrong theories? Ye Wenjie father is on stage accuse, he refuse to accept there is space for God in any of the theories he teach so is this revolution about God? come one people make up your mind.

It seems that this was the young ones only, the puppets, Ye after loosing her father got recruited by higher ranks because they needed scientist like her with lot of talent to help with their communications experiments, makes me think then why kill her father? well probably he was at the wrong place at wrong time, a bit confusing this part of the story and this is not good for viewers.

Benedict Wong from Avengers show up this time as an investigator, his name Da Shi; working on a case where different scientist kill themself for unknown reasons, this last one had high possibilities of getting the novel prize on physics, Vera experiment also discover something they could not explain so is there something or someone killing all this scientist on purpose before they get to close to a big discovery?? this is the part that starts to get interesting, there is a connection between all this dead scientist.

Continue with introducing characters, Saul was working with Vera on her experiment and its the last day the Collider will remain functional after they were shut down because their experiment was going no where, Saul is very irrelevant at this point but he still alive that’s what matters because what if this is a type of The Ring effect where everyone one of them start to see the count down at some point? Different than others Vera look very calm and cool before she kill herself jumping into a pool of some sort of fluid, probably deadly, her last question to Saul was about God.

Next in the group of friends, Jin and Auggie; at a bar having a drink were notified by Saul about Vera’s death, they were discussing the anomalies on Vera’s experiment and how physics and science over all have got to a dead end but I think they were talking about physics mostly, there are other parts of science probably making discoveries and working on things, it was at this moment that Auggie start to see the count down, it started as a Matrix glitch effect until numbers came up in front of her eyes making what ever was behind them look blurry.

After Vera’s funeral all five friends gather to have a drink and talk about how weird all this was. John Bradley play the role of Jack Rooney but he is not a scientist, I like he is not playing a nerdy shy role as he usually does, this time a kind of ass hole all about money guy, as usual he is very funny. Auggie has been feeling off after constantly watching this count down even visit a Neurologist to figure out whats wrong with her, only Jin knows at the moment, that night she step out of the bar for a smoke and a young women offers to light up her cigarette with a very devilish smile on her, she tells Auggie she knows about the countdown and the only way to stop it is if she shuts down her lab, Auggie has a nano tech lab; its like some one is trying to stop different experiments going on that could probably lead to new tech? or the end of the world? again this is the part, the idea, that is interesting.

Jin visits Vera’s mother, Ye; after a few days to help her and get some clues of why Vera would kill herself and Ye mention everything look normal with her, nothing strange, nothing out of the ordinary except a video game that Vera would play none stop, thats when Ye gave Jin the headset, looks like a piece of metal no lenses or headphones. I wonder why Ye been a scientist too didn’t put it on after Vera die, trying to figure out the death of her daughter?

It seems critics and audience are in sync about this series, solid 7/10 on IMDB and RTT, I agree on this after watching the first episode I would say solid 7.5 for me, the mystery about why this scientist can see this countdown and why the women who talk to Auggie ask her to shut down her lab only tells me that either she will make a big discovery or could turn out very bad for humans, Aliens in movies usually want to help humans from eradicating themself although its not clear who is making this scientist watch this count down. The headset I want to see more of that and find out if it is really a game or a simulation of whats going to happen, the story about the China revolution not so interesting to me unless this series is about time travel and they have discover a way to send messages through time, lots of questions, I’ll definitely continue to watch this series but on the traditional one episode a week since I don’t like watching them all at once Netflix release style.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters - Aftermath - Season 01 - Episode 01 -RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Monarch Legacy of Monsters is turning to be a great TV series with three episodes already in, the series doesn’t look full of promises without putting up a show, I have try to cover the movies that connect to the series and also put up a post about the trailer and something that I mention that is key for me when watching any type of content that goes around a certain monster is the monster itself, in the past movies tend to just show parts of the monster and small scenes of it compare to the rest of the story and I was afraid this might be the case but its not, on the first episode we see one fight and two attacks from all different type and size of monsters, along with this a side story of a disappear man who have two families without each other knowing, this man has a secret life that none of his two families know of but it was necessary to keep them protected.

The series is not perfect, there are a few characters that I don’t like too much but I have come to the conclusion that some times that’s how it is suppose to be, when an actor makes you feel certain way because of his/her character and not because of their acting itself then this means its working and in this case it’s Kate and Kentaro, both daughter and son of the disappeared Hiroshi Randa who has been studying all this monsters, this too kids some times get my nerves, both annoying and always arguing like teenagers.

Monarch so far does a great job a resembling to the predecessor movies Skull Island, Godzilla (2014) and we still haven’t seen much related to King of the Monsters and that’s fine because I think when the series get to that point its show time, full blown Goji ready to destroy.

Episode one opens up strong with Bill Randa at Skull Island, this was either a part of the original movie that was not shown or a second tour to the island, he is recording himself, asking someone to forgive him but I’m not sure who is he referring too although it will be useful for the future in the series. Bill is running away from a giant spider that was seen on the Skull Island movie but this time it is trying to eat him probably or at least kill him and when he is at a dead end on a cliff throws a bag with his recordings to the ocean, right after that another monster shows up, giant Crab stands up from the ground to fight the spider and Bill gets away, I think this was a perfect opening scene, you got a monster fight, one monster that was never seen and brings a characters from the monster verse movies.

OG Godzilla story starts in Japan so what a great detail to the series without trying to make it so American, the story at first feels like there is a lot going on and you just got drop in the middle, trying to figure out who is who and what is what but its not complicated, Godzilla at this point in time has appear a few times and already attack San Francisco in the US, that’s reference to Godzilla (2014), Japan is now heavily loaded with weapons against a possible attack, would be ridiculous seen that many missile turrets around the city.

May manage to read the data that is encrypted, but it seems that part of the encryption work against a remote server that authenticates or decompress the data some how, because the minute she starts reading all this data an alarm is set off at Monarch that gets to Tim who work for Monarch and is very interested to know who is working with this documents that seem to be lost and they want them back badly.

Same as Godzilla all this monsters feed from radiation, they are after a location that has high radiation readings that come and goo like there is a radioactive material but something is feeding from it creating all this peak readings, they get to what seems to be an old power plant that must had a core and they did find what they were looking for, MUTO (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism) a term they came up with for some of this monsters, a category.

This is where the episodes gets intense, Keiko was very talented and brave, she volunteer to go down where all this glowing eggs are to take genetic samples, Lee seem to be in charge of their security that Keiko and Bill doesn’t seem to care that much , their passion for the science blinds their judgement exposing them to high risk specially Keiko. Lee and Keiko go down but the place seem to be very unstable and after just a few minutes of walking the surface where the eggs are the place start to crumble and go down, I have a theory that what ever monster that lay down the eggs felt them and was coming making the place shake, monsters that look like insects, look like cockroach, start to run towards Lee and Keiko, that’s how we get to the cover image were Keiko is trying to climb back but the insects got to her, Bill was pulling her up but could not hold the rope, there was too much weight after the insects got her and she falls down.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters - Aftermath - Season 01 - Episode 01 -RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

Working with two time lines gives the series the ability to recreate multiple scenes that sparks that rush of dopamine and then slow things down again, in the case of episode one you have attack at Skull Island with Bill running for his life, the Godzilla attack in San Francisco and at the end the scene where all this insects end up killing Keiko, well I assume she is dead. My point is that its not a boring constant story trying to only figure things out as they go, allowing the series to always have two or three action scenes per episode, at least that’s my expectation.

So far as I mention above the monsters scenes have been as expected, nothing ridiculous, they are not going to give you a big Godzilla fight on the first episodes, probably we get one or even two big fights on season one but so far so good in that department, the story behind the disappearance of Hiroshi seems very interesting also making sense with the movies that back it up, I give episode one a 8/10 because it was very entertaining and had bits of all the movies and the story behind them but this series is not GOT or The Rings of Power so giving it a 10 is very hard for me, Monarch is delivering everything I expected from it and I’m glad not everything was shown on the trailer.

The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon - La Dame de Fer - Episode 4 - Season 1 - RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

La Dame de Fer, the title of this episode that I assume makes reference to the Eiffel Tower that swings with the wind and the noise made by the rusted metal is heard all over the city of Paris, I guess most names are in French because where the story develops but I would rather like the tittle to be “Squeal Piggy” since Daryl use a common reference of how load pigs squeal when they are been killed while he was torturing one of Quinn’s goons.

The series remains strong in the ball part of a solid +7, its not boring although there is one thing that annoys me a bit and that’s how episodes mostly happen in close spaces and the camera has to go back and forward to register characters expression since there is very few open shots and also I think it has to do with light since most part of the series is very dark and I guess it has to do with the fact that there is no light, it keeps moving, entertain, zombies are still relevant since on this side of the world there are variants of Zombies, the series is more about a country that is starting to re establish their society, some just taking care of their people peacefully and others trying to build a regime as they think what the world need now is order and control, both sides might be right but forcing things as Genet wants its just too extremist besides all the experiments she is doing with Zombies has nothing to do with rebuilding society she is just playing to be a Commander and doing what she wants, so far we haven’t got any background of her, how she got into that position its interesting to me how she got all that power.

At the end of episode three Daryl falls down from a roof made of wood during the rain, it was rotten so his weigh broke it and he falls, he had this dream where he and Laurent are in a tunnel but separated by a gate, Zombies start to surround Laurent but they don’t touch him after he start to pray, what this dream might mean is that they are officially saying Laurent can communicate with Zombies?? I though this could also be a scene latter on during the episode but at least it was not on this episode, Laurent’s mother died during birth and she was bitten hours before giving birth so he probably has it on his DNA, the genetic mutation of Zombies mix with his human side.

After Daryl fall through the root he almost drawn, he falls into a place that was probably flooded and there were Zombies under water, I don’t know how they got to attack him if Zombies don’t know how to swim and they didn’t fall from the roof with him so that got me thinking for a minute, lucky for Daryl there were just a few and he manage to kill them, kill zombies hmmm.

Another Dame de Fer, Genet; visits Fallou camp after Cordon raid it last night, Isabelle, Laurent and Daryl manage to escape but the rest stay after all they were not the ones been chased, on this scene two things are confirm, Genet wants nothing to do with the Messiah story surrounding Laurent as that divides the people that she is trying to control, all she wants is them been under her command and not a religious story, nobody gives out Laurent besides none of them knows where they are.

I have thought since episode two that there is probably something cooking between this two but so far nothing, Daryl told Isabelle to meet at her apartment after the camp got raided, problem is where the fuck is Laurent. Daryl keeps telling Isabelle all this happen because she keeps lying to him about everything, if she really believes Laurent been the Messiah I think it should be the other way, she should have him inform as much as possible to avoid this mental break downs, Laurent has grown extremely naive.

Daryl been the good old tracker he is, has a good idea of where Laurent might be, at first I thought he was at Quinn’s bar since now he knows who his father and mother are but Laurent actually went to the Eiffel Tower, here the name of the episode La Dame Fer; there were a lot of Zombies trapped and when the saw Laurent they ran towards him, at first I thought ok if the first scene that makes reference he can some how talk to Zombies then this might be the moment Laurent shines but he panic and hide, he didn’t, lucky him Isabelle and Daryl found him, they try to take care of the Zombies around but at the same time Quinn’s goons snatch Laurent.

After a Zombie apocalypse, Isabelle leaving Quinn behind and now knowing Laurent is Lily’s son, his son, I can relate how he might feel the need to be a dad for Laurent, problem is that he has grown too naive but at the same time too cold, cold in the sense that he haven’t live enough to be scared or worry about things the same way the rest do, its like when a baby does something risky, they don’t know fear until they get hurt, Laurent has not been hurt, he is what 15 years old and never knew his mother and father until now so for him probably doesn’t make that much difference.

Genet is going around Paris tracking down Daryl and Laurent, Quinn ask her to come to his place because he wants to negotiate and here is the part that I think will cost him a lot in the future, not only he is asking for a bounty in exchange of Daryl but he also lie to her face after she ask her if he has Laurent that is at his office in the same bar they are at that moment, in exchange for Daryl he asks for a Monet, a painting. I think Quinn is a visionary, at some point in time he believes society can be similar to what it was, the world and he wants to be in control of the many things people value in the past like art, he is a collector and has a lot of art that could be very valuable once again.

Now probably my favorite part of the episode, Isabelle and Daryl manage to get one of Quinn’s goon while they put Laurent in a car and ran away with him, that scene was a bit stupid since I only saw one guy driving and Laurent alone in the back seat and Daryl still couldn’t get him out of the car, but at least the next scene when they try to get some intel from the one they caught was worth it. Isabelle try her nun way, been patient, nice, just talking while Daryl he brought a very dark story of a kid and his pet piglet, Daryl kept stabbing the guy on his torso, I don’t know how deep it was but he took about five or six to he body and was still taking, Daryl did get that piglet to squeal, he told them how to get into Quinn’s bar from a back door.

It was funny to me how Isabelle thought Daryl was the kid of the story he told and Daryl sarcastic that he is answer her no, but I do think it was him, on the original Walking Dead he constantly tell stories about bad his childhood was, his father was a drunk, kids use to bully him until he became a bad ass and no body mess with him anymore so I do think it was a true story, with the info on how to get into Quinn’s bar without him notice they plan a distraction.

Fallou and the rest attack the entrance of the bar as a distraction so all the guards go to that side of the building while Daryl gets from the back and takes Laurent with him, the distraction scene was not so interesting, I just mention it to give some context.

Anna will turn into Quinn demise, all this time before Isabelle and Laurent show up Anna was there for him, it looks like she is in love with Quinn but he is a selfish man that only cares about what he wants so at the moment he doesn’t want her anymore, when Daryl got to the place he found Laurent and Anna let them go in purpose just to screw with Quinn. Daryl had to fight Quinn on the way out, it was a short irrelevant fight, they try to make it interesting with them fighting on a suspended runway so viewers might think like ooohhh what if one of them fall? but they never did, I knew it would not happen.

They manage to get Laurent out of Quinn’s bar, no body from Fallou camp died and now Laurent is on his way to the nest with Daryl, it was actually very easy since there were not too many guards at the moment and the only person that could have really stop Daryl was Anna but she let them go, question is why the FUCK did Isabelle came back to Quinn, I would guess she went there to offer herself in exchange Quinn leaves Daryl and Laurent alone, trying to buy protection but in my opinion that only make things worst because when Genet finds out she is going to doubt Quinn and if that happens then going back with Quinn is worthless, Quinn can only protect Daryl and Laurent until Genet allow it.

The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon - La Dame de Fer - Episode 4 - Season 1 - RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

When I look back to episode four nothing really important happen, it was a transition episode after Fallou camp was raided, Laurent got lost, then caught by Quinn and then Daryl got him back end of the episode, I don’t want to make it boring but it was literally what happen, the good part about the series is the details scenes they put in the middle so it doesn’t feel that way, they had to fight Zombies to get Laurent at the Tower but no luck, then they had to fight Quinn to get Laurent and the only true obstacle, Anna; let them go like it was nothing but what really makes up for this episode is how cruel Daryl was during the interrogation scene, things I already mention, what I want to see is if Laurent is the real Zombie Pied Pipper and I think that is the entire reason why others think he is the Messiah who safes the world, also we got pending the reason for Genet’s experiments with Zombies something that was not mention during this episode but its ok since this was the one very slow episode of the series.

I feel this episode took me more than usual to write bu I wanted to do something different with the images, I don’t want to just take screenshots and past them so I try to add more to it to explain the scene, I have even consider making gifts for key scenes or just the cover image, something I will do in the future, all this details take time, an entire post can take me between two to three hours depending how long is it and how concentrated I’m.

The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon - Paris Sera Toujours Paris - Episode 3 - Season 1 - RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

I don’t know what is it with this series but we are already in episode three of a six episode season and it feels like for ever, I know I’m only watching one episode per week and probably this short seasons are intended to watch in one or two days, still would not make sense but I can’t think of why it feels so slow, nothing of real context rather than Laurent life is happening, yes everything goes around him on this season but there is not much fighting, shooting, kidnap, bullying, survive, that’s what traditional Walking Dead is, bring out that survivor side of the characters, actually episode one was way better than two and three.

There are a couple of things that need to be clarify for example whats going Genet army, what kind of experiments are they really doing not only on the ship that Daryl escape from but now on this episode we also have the opportunity to look at a facility where they running experiments on Zombies, Walkers, from what I saw its a kind of super strength or rage I say this because there was a Zombie on chains go wild and break loose but then his head explode.

On this episode I think we only get more context of Isabelle and Laurent, where they come from not the country but what was their life before the Zombie outbreak, we already know Laurent is Isabelle nephew but what about Isabelle? first part of episode two was mostly about her and now episode three does a similar thing towards the middle, uncovering part of her past with Quinn her ex boyfriend who survive after she ran away with her sister on Quinn car leaving him behind but let me tell you Quinn is full of surprises.

Daryl has kept his part of the deal, he got Isabelle and Laurent to Paris but it looks like everything is dead, streets are empty, Zombies everywhere like people has loose hope, all you can hear is the Eiffel Tower moving with the wind, that must be impressive all that silence and suddenly listing to that giant rusty metal structure swinging, their home town, initially they were looking for a man who live on a theater, a musician, they have talk over the radio before but it seems he has been alone for too long to the point he has gone mad, crazy, nuts, some how he have tied a bunch of Zombies to instruments and now they play for him as an orchestra, it was very impressive to see all the Walkers “”playing”” the instruments, so there is no radio, no hope of communicating with others, Isabelle is disappointed but Daryl is pissed, he is not a God’s man and hates loosing time specially when he knew it was a waist of time.

After the disappointing encounter with the mad musician at the theater they start exploring, have no clue where to go but destiny finds them, Fallou a men who knew father Pere Jean cross their way. Fallou runs a small community of survivors, they are pacific, strong and have build a sustainable environment where everyone has a role to play to keep it going, there are workers, teachers, cooks, everything is going smooth, Fallou knows about Laurent, well what father Pere Jean convince them, the prophecy that Laurent will safe the world from this apocalypse but so far he is just a kid that has been lied all this time along and things are going to get bad once he start to learn his true story, on episode two he abandon the idea of going to Paris and wanted to stay with the other kids at the school they found on their way so its just a matter of time before he knows his true story and turn against Isabelle for keeping him in the dark and lying to him all this time.

This was funny scene, after they failed at locating a radio now at Fallou’s camp they don’t use radio they use pigeons to communicate so Daryl goes mad again, not only he is among a group of religious people who has silly believes in his opinion but now they want him to stay sitting for days or weeks waiting for a pigeon with a message, that’s IF big IF the pigeon returns.

In some part of Paris, Codron has finally met Genet, he brings her proof that he knows who Daryl Dixon is, the American who escape from the ship and did some damage to it that cost her time and money to rebuild so she still have on her plans locating Daryl, all Codron wants is to capture him and if possible kill him in revenge of his brother, they go about why she have to trust him to which he doesn’t much context other than he wants revenge and he has seen Daryl before because that’s the truth, he knows nothing about Daryl, this are some of the things that make me feel this episode was vague as fuck and slow too, they spend about five minutes at her office while she tries to light up a smoke and Codron not really proving why he is the man for the task, anyways she put him in charge of finding Daryl.

After Daryl got pissed about them waiting for a pigeon to carry their message, Fallou offer them the option to look for some one who can help Daryl get into a boat to America, that is a truly fucking task locating a boat to get him from one continent to another, after all he probably got lucky and there is no way he can go back.

They are in Paris, Isabelle home tome and she left a stash at her apartment, money, drugs, jewelry, things they can use to trade, Daryl already kept his part of the deal to bring Laurent safe to Paris, now Isabelle feels she is on Daryls debt list so she is willing to do as much as it takes to keep her part of the deal. Some times Daryl is a fucking bastard, Isabelle was telling him about Quinn but that is part of her stupid past, they he makes fun of her how she upgrade Quinn with God, like that is as stupid as been with Quinn.

Zombies got into the building and got them surrounded at her apartment, while trying to escape Isabelle froze after she saw a little girl who use to life into the same building a as her turn into a Zombie the weird part is that she was not as deteriorated as the other Zombie what makes me think she was probably killed or die of some natural cause, remember in Walking Dead eventually everyone turns into a Zombie after dying unless you stick something through their head right away. The exit was blocked by thick branches that Daryl could not cut and he notice this Zombies were burners too, their touch and insides burn anything, same as they Zombies that he saw on episode one at the warehouse so he use one of the to burn down the branches with their acid insides.

Daryl, Isabelle, Fallou, Laurent and Silvie got to a club, its the end of the world but seems people in Paris will keep on partying, question is where do they get the drinks, how they get currency, why do they get paid, there has to be some sort of economy to keep the place going, the man in charge was Quinn, Isabelle’s ex boyfriend who safe them from getting robbed from local smart ass you were trying to out play Isabelle and Daryl to keep their drugs as they were trying to make a deal for boat.

I really thought Quinn was going to be pissed and lock them down, after all he runs the place, got a crew and out power them but he wanted to play the big boy card, the play boy card, he owns the place, has money, power so Quinn takes Isabelle and Daryl to his office where he has everything from paints, antiques, champagne, offers them a drink but they just want to make a deal and get out.

Doubt if its true or not but after Isabelle tells him she is nun now and refuse to stay with him he reveal to her that Laurent is most likely his son, that her sister Lily was carrying his son so he was fucking her at the same time he was dating Isabelle, he wants Laurent to know the truth in exchange of getting a boat for Daryl but Daryl refuse and leaves then Isabelle gets pissed at Daryl, I didn’t get that right was it either Quinn just wanted Laurent to know he is his father or is it also that he wants Quinn to stay?? I think was just Laurent know the truth.

Cordon is after Daryl, some how he knows he was at Quinn place, back at Fallou’s camp Quinn and Isabelle kept talking about Laurent and her destiny, but Daryl is still pissed at how she lies to the kid, his father now, his entire life, Daryl had enough with his failed attempts to get a boat helped by Isabelle, Laurent heard them and tries to run away after telling them he hates them.

Cordon got to the camp and starts chasing Daryl, before he left the camp Daryl tells Isabelle to meet her at the apartment, some lame chasing starts, then Cordon and Daryl got into a fight but nothing impressive, it was a very dark scene with both dress in black, the music was lame too, very bad ending for the episode in my opinion.

The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon - Paris Sera Toujours Paris - Episode 3 - Season 1 - RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

This episode was not bad but at best I give it a 7/10 and that’s been generous, its on the verge of a six, there were a few interesting scenes like the musician with the Zombie band playing, Quinn’s underground bar but then it raise the question of how he keeps the place running, the small drama that he is Laurent father was a good twist but nothing really interesting or impressive on this episode, what I really want to know is the purpose of Genet experiments with Zombies and why Daryl was a prisoner at her ship, eventually he will kill Codron that’s for sure, the Laurent story I cant really care less, in my opinion is all about if and how Daryl gets back home, very lame episode, I hope the other three pack some punch.

Special Ops: Lioness – The Beating – Season 1 – Episode 2 – RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Special Ops Lioness is still ramping up at an internal level of the team, there are few things that we now for sure so far, one is that Joe is in charge and two that Cruz is going to be the bait but after loosing a Lioness to a tattoo on her side Joe doesn’t want to risk it again and this time is taking her Lioness Cruz to another level of pain because the hardest part of Joe’s job is to when she has to extract her after she gets discovered, she has to know how much time she has before Cruz breaks and start singing, with your head on the line most do and that’s how much time Joe needs to know before she takes the decision to drop a missile from a drop on Cruz head.

The series seem to be very criticize on forums and review sites for how they taking advantage of political problems and mold them to their stories even when events are not close to what is real or not, I think all that is bullshit because anyone that consider themself mature enough should know that this is TV Show this is not a fucking documentary, people watching TV should only be looking for some sort of entertainment, some dopamine, free your mind for an hour and know well that this does not has to be close to reality, I think so far actors has done this very well, entertain and for an action series with a some what unique theme Lioness, I truly give this first two episodes solid 7.5/10

Joe learn the hard way from her previous experience that when an agent blow their cover, a women in this case; and they have more than ten men looking around with a big ass Machete on their hands trying to find her to behead them and set on fire while they get recorded, everyone brakes, they stop thinking and have no clue what to due, that’s when clock starts ticking for Joe and why last time she took the decision to drop the hammer and a missile before her Lioness go through all that pain, this time she got Cruz a well trained Marine but Joe feels even Cruz breaks, usually in this type of stories Marines like Cruz who have nothing to loose, no family, no children, no boyfriend, they still have ghosts from the past that hunts them, everybody does, but its up to us how to keep them in the closet, Joe knows this very well and wants to learn Cruz breaking point, that’s what she meant here to put Cruz through the grinder.

Work for an intelligence agency and in a program like Joe is probably the worst job to keep a family, similar to her Neal, Joe’s husband also has one of the worst job in the planet, I say this because some times he has to face parents and tell them their child has little chances to survive a decease and its probably just to enjoy the little time they might have left, he is a doctor that work with patients with terminal cancer and some times he needs balls of steel to be the ones who drop the news to the family of his patient.

Episode two sets clear how hard Joe’s job is at home, a repercussion of her true job, been most of the time away, keeping secrets from her family, been away from their kids who are as though as her, Kate her daughter seem to not know the limits yet but Joe is soon to show her whats what a may be put her through some parenting grinder, Kate feels her parents marriage is fake and they going to divorce probably because they are most of the time separated but that’s doesn’t seem the case as Joe and Neal are staying together, so far the series is still on that phase of letting viewers get interested on characters side stories besides the entire Lioness mission.

We already know Cruz story, her ex boy friend paint it very well when he said she doesn’t dance, smoke or fuck anymore, that’s how they met, Cruz was probably a stripper. On episode one she was very anxious and didn’t know how to react to the fact that she is going blind into the mission but that’s the beauty of it to make it look as real as possible and cut down the risk of saying something to her asset she is not suppose to know. After her first encounter Aaliyah, the asset; Cruz is taken back to the US and put into an apartment that’s making her go crazy and decides to burn some time but Joe had other plans for her.

Joe finally gave green light to the mission, that’s kidnap Cruz and make it look as real as possible so she feels real pain, make her feel afraid, vulnerable and try to break her soul in half, they try all kind of torture but it was not enough so Joe had to jump to the stage, come clean that this is just an exerciser, I would never know because I haven’t been in such situation or training but I THINK at some point after so much pain, torture, no sleep, changes in temperature, noise, your body and mind wants it to stop so it did not take much time for Joe to break Cruz mentally reminding her about her past, how shitty was her life because Marines could not after beating her up but Joe takes it to a new level. You might find this shitty because so far Cruz have gone through a lot until now but it seems Cruz has become what she needed to defend herself back in the past, like when she said she join the Marines because she felt safe that time a Marine protect her from her ex boyfriend Hector but again it depends on the amount of torture she has gone through and that can make people sensitive enough to break to such poor speech, there is a saying “words hurt more than actions”

Joe was taking this exerciser to the extreme until she breaks, all Cruz is been ask is to say his name, her brothers name, that’s the trigger, Marines running the exercise know technically this is going too far already, they were going to push Cruz one more time, this scene has some fucking killing fights, I love this part when Cruz starts to kick some ass but that’s after she almost break but Marine Cody running the exerciser gets called to stand down and stop the exerciser, Joe is screwed as now Cruz doesn’t know her breaking point but Marines think other wise, Cruz did look broken at the time so she probably learn one or two things about herself.

Joe again reminds Cruz how eventually she might get caught and when that happens is Joe’s job to extract her but that’s not going to be easy and with little time to do so, the possibility of surviving such situation are very little but at the moment Cruz feels so shitty about herself, that’s the effect of torture, latter on when Cruz recovers her mojo things turn different, to help Cruz integrate with the team and recover she puts her on the same house as the rest of the team.

After two cups ask Cruz what happen to her the team got her back and help Cruz get some revenge so she can feel better and show her they are there for her, she is now part of the team, Bobby specially throwing more gas into the fire, taking the boys to a bar where Marine Cody was to fuck him up and others with him. After a cool short bar fight and Cruz taking revenge on Cody (cover photo of the post), Cruz gets a call from Aaliyah and gets invited to a pool party.

Special Ops: Lioness – The Beating – Season 1 – Episode 2 – RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

I have no complains about the series so far, cool under cover agent story on a war against terrorist, episode one and two are only getting to get us interested on all characters story line, from Joe’s family to her team and some other main characters who have not had much screen time yet is the case of Kaytlyn who look like Joe’s boss, there are other actors who have not show yet like Morgan Freeman, we know this because he appears on the main cover for the series so this tells us we are just getting to know the characters. I also like how the episode ends with Cruz getting a call from her asset Aaliyah inviting her to party but that’s it, lets viewers on suspense imagining whats next.

If it was a complain my only one would be that the torture scenes were too short, feel they try to make it look Cruz was there for a few days but it didn’t feel that way, an exerciser like that can’t take a few hours so it was probably best for the episode to leave Cruz the entire episode on the island so it felt a little more real, I’m talking about the sensation that it has been a couple of days under torture, they just crunch time too much, I hope its not the case on other episodes because then we will see characters going from place to place in seconds and that sux, that takes from the immersion effect of the story.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters (2023) INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Technology is making possible for studios to create all this shows that I would only dream off, I was born in the 80’s a generation that have probably have seen the most advance in technology from phone land lines to smart phones, from manual special effects to now AI generated scenes.

I was never a fan of monsters movies because I had this bad impression from Godzilla (1998), I remember everyone had high hopes on this movie but eventually it was so dark and very few times Godzilla appear full body, all this recent advance in tech lead to some of the best Godzilla movies ever in terms of how the monsters look example Godzilla (2014) and Godzilla: King of The Monsters (2019) two of my favorite Monster after my number one monster movie Cloverfield (2008). After many years of not watching this type of Monster Titan movies or in terms of Monarch language MUTOS (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism) Cloverfield pick my interest because of how the movie was film in First Person so the monster itself was more of a mistery but for some reason got me interested enough so I gave a chance to Godzilla (2014) end up liking it and the watch the 2019 movie, end up loving and wanted more of what is now days called the Monster Verse, as always I don’t want to pretend I’m an expert but took some time to read about Monarch and the Godzilla chronology.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters (2023) – TRAILER OPINION – www.skiptvads.blog

That order is how I remember things work out for me from bad to great impression of Monsters movies, so far the only one I’m not that excited are Kong Movies, mostly because they are all the same but now that they making a series out of the movies it intrigue me to watch Godzilla vs Kongo (2021) and Kong: Skull Island (2017) since from my understanding they are related to the upcoming TV Series too.

www.skiptvads.blog - tv series divider

Trailers at times might be either misinterpret ended or misleading, this TV Show wont be the exception as most people will want to watch Godzilla fighting from the first episode and I even doubt we will see it on the first episode. Apple TV had an early release and the embargo just ended so first comments without reaction or spoilers are coming up. From what I have seen on the trailers and what has been said its going to be very different than what everyone is expecting, this series at least season one will be about Monarch itself, from how it started, what happen in San Francisco on the 2014 movie to the 2019 movie so more than one time line going back and forward.

I really like how at least Godzilla itself looks but I think the 2019 movie was the final proof that tech is there to make this cool monsters come alive with their full blown powers. As any other story adapted to TV it wont be straight up close to say the “canonical” version of the story since they have to include the drama and sell the product, it is not to be a nerd out COJI TV Series but I’m sure will give more details of how everything started and might even turn into what UMBRELLA was to Resident Evil was the entire structure for most of the movies, everything happen around the corporation, similar might be with MONARCH, make the TV series relate the movies is what most viewers will want but but that could be hard to do for all Godzilla movies since there are so many with different Godzilla and some of the more traditional to the original story so even if they do manage to get the TV series close to a group set of this movies there will always be a few things that wont match as I mention because of all the Godzilla versions through the years.

Above a comparison of different Godzilla versions through the years, some of them are similar but things like legs, chest, arm length, back arch are very different between them.

From what I can tell the series will start with character Keiko, a women who was there at San Francisco 2014 when the Godzilla attack happen, she lost her father so the movie will work with probably different time lines going back and forward, to connect dots you will have to pay attention to details, it looks like her father was always working for MONARCH but she has no clue what is was so after he died she started to investigate what is this corporation.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters (2023) TRAILER CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

This is just a trailer so the main target is to get people all hype about it but I expect the first season to be very slow with flash backs from others movies and scenes related to that timeline probably scenes that never make it to the movies, if we see Godzilla fighting twice is a win because if its going into every episode then I don’t see it going more than two seasons and that will suck although it all depends if viewers stay interested, from what I have read and seen online from the director, on an interview he mention how the TV Series is trying to create a story around all the movies, essentially tell how MONARCH start to discover all this monsters give more details about them and probably not let things just to the imagination, how they are born, how they stay hidden and probably most important the reason for the attacks, all this keeping the spectacle the big show of Godzilla fights but also make it interesting at the people around MONARCH.

First episode will air on November 17, 2023

The main reason for this post is to actually give you my bad experience with this type Monster movies and how have been getting better through the years thanks to technology and better story, but mostly it is wise to keep expectation at a safe level with this type of content.

Special Ops: Lioness - Sacrificial Soldiers - Season 1 - Episode 1 - RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Same as it happen to me I’m sure most people will be HOOKED on the first ten minutes and will be asking for more gunpowder for the rest of the episode, Special Ops: Lioness packs a fucking ton of it plus tough to the nails women in action, between Joe and Cruz you will love to see them kicking ass left and right, on first episode we still don’t see any of the too in action yet.

This is a series I have been wanting to watch for some time now, as usual a bit skeptical if it would be good or not scoring 7s and 8s on sites so it obviously has to be good, I’m a sucker for war theme anything from movies to TV series, plus the undercover agent part that is very exciting.

Special Ops: Lioness as you guess is about women who go to war but not exactly to just shoot, it is a special operations program for women to get involve with female related to male targets, say they are after a man but know his daughter or wife are usually in contact then they send out a female agent to infiltrate them, become friends with them until they get enough information and if possible kill the target. This program is lead by Joe who recruit the members, it all sound easy like get dress well, become friends, gain their trust but the dirty and savage part is when their cover is blown and now Joe has to take the decision, will the agent get safe so it can be extract or is it time to cut loose ends meaning pull the trigger if necessary to not compromise the program.

The episodes starts with an attack to a CIA post, it was a very large amount of guys attacking but it almost didn’t make sense, not that they don’t explain the reason for the attack but how they were running forward and then to the sides I don’t know, once the shooting stops, adrenaline goes down and you re watch the scene you find it empty, but I have to say it was a great opening, in five minutes you had massive shooting, ak47 screaming all over the place, a FUCKING HAWG one of the most badass aircraft in movies and irl clearing the field and even a drone strike hitting the target. Once the music was over the story starts to unfold, even though it was a great opening I doubt this is how the series will be, I don’t think we are going to have this massive shooting on every episode.

First episode, time to meet main characters and their motives, basically what the hell is this story about, on the picture above is Joe women in charge of calling the shots on the field, I don’t think she is in charge as usually there is some one back at home moving the pieces but on the field she decides if you stay or go, on the first episode her undercover agent gets identified, Joe never check her for tattoos and seems she had a cross with a name on her side and it was seen by one of the women on the village, depending on where you at it can be a big NO NO since they are in middle east. Joe tried to extract her from the location but it was already too late for her, extremist found her and were about to cut of her head but Joe authorize drop a missile from a drone to safe her the pain and keep things secret as possible, desperate move for a desperate situation.

Next on the startup we got Cruz Manuelos, a women who is trying to make her life straight after making a lot of bad decisions, lives with her boyfriend who plays been gangster but she is over with that life, now works a honest job and is not into any of her bad habits, this creates a conflict been them and after an argument because she hits a girl inside the house, Cruz’s boyfriend hit her with a jab straight to her face.

Cruz wants to be over with her boyfriend and his old life so next morning she took vengeance, pack her things and wait for him to wake up to hit him twice in the face with a pan, the chase starts until they arrive to a US Marine recruiting center, she enters screaming for help until a big ass Marine steps in between her and her boyfriend. She felt safe with the Marine, she realize if she didn’t wanted to be abuse anymore one of her options was to become tougher, US Marines training will do that for her so she enrolls, top of her class, tougher than male recruits, faster, smarter, she was the full package, perfect asset to join the Lioness.

After a lot of reports, debriefs, interviews, Joe comes back home with two things in mind, first is go home spend some time with her family although is not that easy because she spends most of her time out of the country on classified missions meaning no contact with her family, comes back home and between her two kids her son is more sensible to not seen her for so long, her husband holds the fort while she is out.

Joe ended up recruiting Cruz, after all she is at the top of her class and Joe had to move fast, she needed another undercover agent, Cruz and Joe are not best friends, actually Joe doesn’t seem to like her that much, Cruz is now in my opinion over confident, been a Marine make her feel she has a lot of power and can conquer everything life throws at her but when your neck is at risk that’s when true stars shine, for her first task she did panic a bit.

Different than most common undercover agents that already know everything about their target all Cruz knows is her face, undercover name Zara Adid but she forgot the moment Aaliyah Amrohi ask for her name, the moment Cruz got into the car to get ready and meet the target she starts panicking and Joe had to calm her down, the hole idea of knowing nothing about the target is to lower the risks of getting caught and make the experience as real as possible, become friends, create a bond but with always in mind that this is just another job.

Special Ops: Lioness - Sacrificial Soldiers - Season 1 - Episode 1 - RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

This series so far is exactly as what the tittle says, a Special Operations team that work with Lioness, top of the class Female Marines who are fearless, tough and can still be a perfect lady, Cruz is not the most girly girly but she knows her way around. Cruz story feels a bit crunch but I guess the series is not about that, after all this is another Army theme TV series bringing in something different, its the first time I see this type of series based on a group of female Special Ops Marines, usually is the other way around and that’s interesting also how they are thrown into the water without knowing much about the target, the end goal is the same locate and get/kill the bad guy.

I wonder if this series will be big enough to get several season something like SEAL Team currently on its sixth season or something shorter like Six only got two seasons, I don’t see how a series with very few characters and no side stories could make it into a more than two or three seasons, I’m also curious of how much action we will get on each episode because it was five minutes of gunpowder and then the rest was a few japs, kicks, arguing and that was it, less than forty five minutes per episodes.

I give this first episode a solid 7.5 just because of what I mention, I think they try to buy the audience with all the shooting at the beginning but after that the action starts to soften little by little.
