ECHO (2024) - Chafa - Episode 1 - RECAP - INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

There are two character that makes me wanting to like ECHO, this two characters are Dare Devil and Kingpin; there are several reasons for this, first is because I remember Kingpin the most from the Spider Man cartoons so brings back memories from when I was a kid and Dare Devil I have always like the red armor suit, although in this series looks a bit over weight or short I don’t know whats the deal, he is one of those super hero who has no powers, yes there is the fact that he train and develop his hearing more than anyone else although she doesn’t fly or shoot lasers, we can say he is on the same super hero category as Batman and Iron Man, this two other have no super powers neither its just their brain and training so for this I really like Dare Devil plus all the stunts he pulls on every movie or TV series he is in, remember how he catch that brick on Spider-Man No Way Home?

The first episode of ECHO but it is very evident that they trying to cover a lot of ground and time will be against it, this is the first Marvel show for 2024 and I was expecting it to be good but episode one I could only give it a 7/10 at best, most of the votes on IMDB are the same and Audience acceptance over all on RottenTomatoes is very low on the 65%, I only hope that this series is not that bad, 7/10 is an OK score.

Episode one try to resume how Maya Lopez lost her leg as a kid, her family from his father side was not the most straight, it looks like her fathers last name meant trouble everywhere they go, Maya and her mother got into a bad car wreck because some one cut the breaks out of their truck trying to hurt her father or family, her uncle is The Kingpin and runs New York who stop her before she became a trouble for him and gave her a job as part of his mafia but things didn’t go that well between them.

As a kid Maya had a very happy life living with her parents and having her cousin Bonnie coming home, although I wonder who is Bonnie’s father? things go so fast during the episode that Bonnie arrive with her grand parents to Maya’s house, I did look up online and I believe Bonnie’s father is Henry Lopez, I would also assume this because latter on when Maya comes back home she look for him and had a quick talk about her plans, Maya and Bonnie were very close and they consider themself as sisters.

When Maya and her mom got into the accident this was devastate for the family, Maya lost her leg but the worst part is that she feels its her fault her mom is dead, took some time for her father to let her know what happen, Maya thinks its her fault she is dead because she wanted hot chocolate and they had to go to the store. Her father was offered a job in New York, far away from Maya’s home town, the Lopez last name is means trouble and her grand mother Chula knew this, she never approve Maya’s father.

Maya had it rough growing up with this minor disability at first but she figure it out to overcome it although most people underestimate her and that’s part of her super power, Maya was full of anger, causing troubles left and right, she became really good fighter but her father was still dealing and making business most likely with the wrong people and that got both into deep trouble, the episode happens as the very same pace as I’m describing it, it felt like the story got really rush during the entire episode.

One night Maya comes back to the shop and finds someone inside killing every one on the shop, if you saw the Avenger movies and Dr. Strange you will recognize him right away, besides the first time ECHO shows up on the screen was on Hawkeye’s series, so cat is out of the bag, after the blip Hawkeye went rouge and start going after every possible criminal he knew, no matter the reason he wanted to kill them all, the more dangerous the mission the better, he lost his family during the blip so he was blind by rage, this most likely lead him to work with other criminals, he was not an Avenger anymore, he was an assassin, Maya goes into the shop and found her father dying after Hawkeye stab him.

After loosing her father Maya became double the trouble so Kingpin got her something to do, a purpose as he describe it, a place and a reason to keep going, she was a great fighter although was not a murder yet so at her first mission when things got rowdy she froze, didn’t know what to do looking at all this guys fighting and shooting, people dying on the spot, until one of them attack her and became her first victim. During this scene Dare Devil shows up although it was nothing special about it, they had a short fight that was not impressive at all, not saying it was bad but it was not the climax of the episode.

Hawkeye and Kingpin were the climax of the episode but things start to get rush, cut, slice, the damn episode became just this scenes after scene of nothing, just indicators of what was going on so for a first episode NO BUENO, I’m not the type of guy who gives up on a series that easy but I hope this gets better, at least Maya figure out who kill her father when she finds Hawkeye and he confess it was Kingpin who gave the order.

Again, scene after scene with not much context, some how Kingpin got hurt badly and Maya was there but this time she was different and capitalize on the opportunity to put a bullet on his head or at least that is what she thought, Kingpin was not dead and now there was a bounty on her head, she goes back home and asks her uncle Henry for help but not exactly to get out of the family business but to control it, sending a message to those who work for Kingpin, she thinks its time for a Queen, she is that queen.

ECHO (2024) - Chafa - Episode 1 - RECAP - CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

I think its very evident that I didn’t like the first episode that much and it has nothing to do the the characters but with the story, there were events happening one after another like it was an entire flash back scene without much explanation of why some things were happening, if it wasn’t for the fight scenes it would be bad, in fact even the fight scenes themself were too short, I kept wanting to see Maya fight for longer, the Dare Devil scene was also short but I cant understand it was a teaser for whats coming up and that is what I hope that once The Kingpin gets on his foot again, probably on episode three thinks start to pick up the pace and we get some context of the things that had happen so far, after all this is only a five episode mini series and I know this have been mention before on my posts but I don’t want this to be another Secret Invasion event where the last episode is so crunch that send everything to shit. Event when I was going through the images and trying to build up the story it feels like there is no context to it, very little dialog with just the obvious so I didn’t enjoy as much as I wanted, I wanted to have some nice looking takes from the fights scene but there were very little that I could use.

Special Ops: Lioness – Truth Is the Shrewdest Lie – Season 1 – Episode 5 – RECAP

Special Ops: Lioness – Truth Is the Shrewdest Lie – Season 1 – Episode 4 – RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

In the spirit of conclusion I have decided that there are a few series I’m going to finish before moving forward, Special Ops: Lioness is one of them, I have recently been putting out other type of content that I wanted to start cover like articles about the Film Industry, Trailer reviews and soon I’ll be indexing data different but I still want to post my regular episodes recaps although they take me about four hours to do because of all the screenshots I take to put them into a “graphic representation” of the scene describing, at times it can be an exhausting hobby but I still like it or hate it depending on the day.

This series moves into split episodes, things never actually get to a conclusion in a single episode, they split the story here and there and episode five is the conclusion of four and opens the door to a situation I didn’t though at first but I think there is something going on between Cruz and Aaliyah, there is also the situation that Joe has been dealing with at home with her daughter Kate that got into a car wreck, part of the truth start go comes out like what her daughter really thinks about her and she also came up front with the reality that she is not the best mother but her reasons have valid grounds, she is a soldier after all and Joe’s husband has his own problems with that too, he can’t stand been with or without her, with actually turns a bit ironic because for been with Joe that’s her been on a mission she can’t talk about and that is killing Neal, looks like he can’t stand that situation anymore. Not much happen between Cruz and Aaliyah on this episode until the end they pick up on face time call where Aaliyah express herself/body just too much to Cruz and she notice it was too much so step back a bit, there might be a relationship brewing here but after all Aaliyah is like a bird on a cage made out of gold, she has everything she ever dream but at the same time has doesn’t own anything, not even her freedom.

On episode four Cruz went to a bar to party with Aaliyah and her friends where she got picked up by a guy who was a rapist, the guy drug her and pick her up after a fight started, Joe team got to her just in time on the woods where the guy was going to finish her on the spot, Joe took care of him and make him remember that moment for ever and think twice before raping another girl, Joe almost rip his balls apart, one kick after another. He never touch Cruz but she also didn’t remember a thing so she is was still confuse of what really happen but her team got there on time, well it was really close.

Source

As I mention Joe’s daughter Kate got into a car wreck, so at the moment she had to deal with Kaitlyn , Kate and Neal at the same time, traveling from one place to another, Kaitlyn took her to the hospital but made sure she didn’t over extend her staying since there was business to take care of after she lend her team to Kyle, well not really her team.

Source

Kaitlyn has been very supportive with Joe, this entire story is making me think that Joe is either the first or only Lioness that actually survive a mission, on first episode when she had to pull the trigger and drop a missile on a terrorist camp after her asset got discovered she ask Kaitlyn for advice like they have been on the same situation before and most of the Lioness doesn’t make it back. While at the hospital Joe and her daughter Kate finally got that conversation that settle things between them, she is not a kid anymore, got pregnant and almost die on a car wreck on top she lost the baby, at that moment Kate went through life time experience, got her ahead in time so fast that her life has fast forward almost ten years because how she knows what is to be pregnant and loose a baby, may be she didn’t go through the entire experience but for sure will never forget, Joe also comes forward and admit she is a shitty mother for not been there for her but it is what it is, she is a soldier. Lastly but still an important part of the drama Kaitlyn asks Neal not to give up on Joe, he still loves her but Kaitlyn knows its not an easy task to deal with Joe and her line of work.

Source

Both Joe and Kyle gets their asses set on fire by Westfield, who is really the man behind the Lioness program and Kyle was something that should have never happen, Joe’s team is not hers it is lend by Westfield who is way higher on the government rank but Kyle intel was good so there is still a way to cover the shit show that they did on episode four after getting Kyle informant out of custody.

Source

After Kyle intel was confirm they get lets say “yellow” light?” they can proceed with the capture mission but can shoot back if they get attacked? it was a capture mission only all this because no weapons or explosives have been confirm so far but once the targets get to the house they got monitor Two Cups and the rest of the team saw things were getting way hotter than they thought.

Source

This scene where the get to the house was very cool, the shooting, bit dark but it was fast and clean, after confirm guns and explosives they finally get green light so its a capture/kill mission but no body is going to capture anyone besides they lack man power, as Bobby mention its a two squad mission and they are probably out number by two, got to mention that Cruz job was on point so at least she didn’t mess up, well she confirm it herself “this I know” before they went out.

Source

Mission over, Kyle mess has been covered, Joe knows her daughter is alive but will take time to recover there are a few scars from all this, Kaitlyn thinks its a matter of time before another terrorist attack in US soil and Joe kinda mess up when she went back to the hospital, she was probably in a rush and didn’t clean up her face she still had blood and softy Neal notice getting all fired up asking her if she is now a hitman, WTF?? she is a soldier he knows it deal with it, he sees blood every day at the hospital but when his soldier-wife have some on her face then he goes all drama queen?

Special Ops: Lioness – Truth Is the Shrewdest Lie – Season 1 – Episode 4 – RECAP - CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

I would really enjoy a second season of this series, from what I have found online there is actually nothing about it, the series had good rating for what it is, this is not a AAA series although came together very well, there is some cliche here and there but nothing that makes you want to shut down the TV, action scenes so far have been on point, not every episode had them but I can say episode 1, 2, 4 and 5 had been the best at least for me, all episodes have over 7.5 on IMDB.

Episode five I thought was going to be a bit softy like Neal but that action scene pick up the speed of the episode very well, the drama at home with Joe is almost done with only Neal left so I think we wont have to listen to her daughter nagging anymore how bad of a mother she is, that was very annoying for a viewer who wants to see action and not a spoil child so I think for the last three episodes action is going to pick up a lot, I hope they don’t get to finish the mission yet because that would give us more chances of a second season.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters - Departure - Season 01 - Episode 02 -RECAP - INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

MONARCH could easy be one of the best TV series of 2023, the scores are not crazy high across sites like TMDB, IMDB and RTT but it has been everything I hope from the start, that was introduce a good story about all the characters this means Keiko, Shaw Lee, Cate, Bill and now their grand child and on top good monsters with an S scenes and not just Godzilla, this TV series has also push me to watch the three movies related to it so I could have a better understanding of why things happen in certain way and there is still one scenes I cant get why, that’s when Bill is been chase by a giant spider filming ask someone to forgive him for all he “Bill” took from him.. still probably one of the best TV series of 2023 with great contenders like Silo and The Wheel of Time, no doubt the Hollywood Strike hit hard the industry but there are still some gems from 2023 and MONARCH is one of them.

Episode two Departure is still part of that stage of knowing why things are happening and it will be like that probably until episode four when things settle down and it covers for the most part the present time, but I think this season main focus is to explain how things started back on the 50’s with Kieko, Bill and Shaw, that is exactly what MONARCH is after now, the youngsters Cate, Kentaro and his ex-girlfriends May have discover some files from audio and video at his father office, Hiroshi is suppose to be missing or dead but it might not be the case and there is only one person alive that might help them figure out exactly what happen and that Shaw Lee.

Recently read about an interview that was done some time ago to Wyat Russell and how he didn’t want to work with his father until he makes it out by himself, they both are very similar and I guess many other productions have though about them to be included for the same purpose of going back and forward in time lines of the same character, it work out great for MONARCH.

It was the late 50’s in Japan, Dr. Keiko Miura was probably not taken serious by many for a couple of reasons, I guess men were very dominant on her field of work and second she was basically chasing a ghost so when Shaw Lee the III was assign to her as military escort he didn’t take her serious neither and paid a great price right from the start, not only he was cocky but he was kind of pissed been assign as an escort probably as punishment after getting into a bar fight, he even though she was trying to hook up with him when they met, he thought Dr. Miura had to be a men and he was so wrong, this got him more than once to be ashamed of his actions until he started to understand what was going on and why her work was so important despite been almost along on this journey.

Moving into the present we know Kentaro and Cate found some files at their father office in Japan but had no clue what they were about, Kentaro ex-girlfriend knew how to handle some of this old format of data storage and decided to dig into it but this alert MONARCH about it, this are probably OG Bill Randall and Keiko Miura files, how everything started, this documents are important and MONARCH want them back.

On a second trip to his father office Kentaro started to look at some files and found a video tape too, between the files came up Shaw Lee and a document that mentions how he has been admitted at a retiring community that latter on end up been a prison for MONARCH related people, they need to keep their secrets tight even though G-day already happen they don’t want the population know that there are more than just one massive monster going around, this would cause huge panic. Kentaro latter on said his mom told him about how to locate Shaw but it is not true, he got the place name from the documents at his father office.

The entire Kentaro / May relationship is kind of boring and annoying because it has not been properly explain, we know he dump her but why? besides she is hiding something and that could be the reason why he dump her but he was not brave enough to call her out? this is just me making conclusions.

Cate is traumatize by what she went through on G day at San Francisco, I mean who would not if you see face to face good old GOJI!!! she had front row seats at the San Francisco Bridge when Godzilla show up and start screaming its lungs away so now every time she starts feeling claustrophobic her first though is GOJI is coming, that’s what happen when Tim try to soft kidnap her after she denied to talk to him, Cate starts to scream and scramble inside the car and kick the Duval in the face who was driving and then crash badly, not sure how Duval and Tim got out of that crash like it was nothing.

That same night after the crash they raided May apartment and went looking for Kentaro, not only they were very close one place to the other but Duval and Tim look fresh, not like they have gotten out of a bad car crash something I find annoying after watching the episode again, making this post makes me realize things I didn’t on the first watch, that’s another reason I like this posts recaps. Again WTF is May hiding and why she look like running away from something, she catch Cate out of her apartment and brought her to a restaurant where she is hiding a bag with supplies, money and multiple passports like she is ready to disappear anytime if needed. I also like how Kentaro mom help him to escape, was very cool how she look all naive even asking Duval if she was single an available for Kentaro LOL, making time for Kentaro to run away.

Episode Two explain how the three person who started MONARCH met, Keiko, Bill and Shaw, latter on Bill and Keiko become a couple, not sure if they get married because how long did it pass after they met and episode one when Keiko die? weird, I like Randal always creative and running his mouth, but he did see things different than others and had a big imagination, and Shaw as sarcastic as usual.

This pattern right here will come up multiple times on the series, same as Skull Island was a mythical place surrounded by a storm it seems this side of the Philippines has host for very long time a monster that only natives talk about but why governments haven’t notice, it was late 50’s so I guess nobody give a shit about it, G-day only happen until 2014 so the public didn’t know about titans until then, everything else that happen was just stories and legends that no body believe, Bill describe this as a migration pattern.

It feels nice how the series presents a goal, that is looking for monsters and right there they find what they were looking for, the scenery on VR is awesome, the rusted big ship in the middle of a field, the dark scenes thanks to the vintage camera stile of Bill make it look cool since it was not your classic dark scene I can’t see shit and suddenly monsters pop up, you could see details of the ship from inside and what look like the crew who was some how turn into solid material cover by mucus?? or saliva?? This ship was the Lawton that sink close to Pearl Harbor on 1943 more than seven years ago and Bill was on that ship, he didn’t know it was going to be there but he hope for it, this time was also when Shaw started to believe on Bill and Keiko theory about this monsters when he was driving away after been dismissed by Keiko from his duty when he try to tell her what to do, Shaw saw on the sky exactly what Bill describe as “path of fire in the sky” or a path of radiation left behind, so he drives back as fast as he could and help them out of a hairy situation, present to you The Dragon, at the cover image.

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters - Departure - Season 01 - Episode 02 -RECAP - CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

This episode was great, just the second episode and we already have another monster that has been reveal, I doubt it will be the same on every episode but this ramps up the hype when finally glorious GOJIRA shows up to wreck one of them, may be not may be on season one it doesn’t fight anyone and they show Keiko study its behavior, on previous movies Godzilla has been describe as the Titan that brings balance to the system thats why Dr. Ishiro on Godzilla 2014 ask the admiral to let them fight and figure it out, something that for MONARC was a bit dumb. The Russell duo works great for MONARCH and now we are going to watch Shaw Lee in the present reveal some of this secrets Keiko and Bill kept with them so it makes easier for the story to unfold and faster, Kentaro and Cate doesn’t have to look for their father along wondering but now they have Shaw help so I think the balance between characters story and monsters showing up is working out great, from the start the main thing I kept reading was people saying it was going to suck if Godzilla didn’t show up or fight but with all this monsters been reveal I think is crafting more the tittle of the series “Legacy of Monsters” in plural and not just Godzilla.

Reacher: ATM – Season 2 – Episode 1 – RECAP - INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

REACHER season two brings more context to the story, it feels nice when you watch a TV series with proper story structure, season one was full of action with very little of who Reacher really is, all we knew was that he was in the army, he is fucking tank you don’t mess with and is one of the good guys, but there were a few questions like why really he stop giving a fuck about everything and decided to disappear, no phone, no address, travel light, on his own words that is all Reacher was.

Season 2 brings more context by starting to develop what that part of his life was, Mayor Reacher had a crew, he was running a team of special investigators who he selectively hand pick, at first things did not make sense to most of the but everyone was there for a reason and not just random guys from all over the army, Reacher is like the final version of the Hulk, when Bruce Banner finally understood Hulk as an improvement and not a disease, that’s Reacher, the final version of the Hulk and it would be nice to see him working hard than usual, suffer a bit, may be would be nice to see some one giving him a proper fight one to one, season two starts with the death of Calving Franz, member of this old crew the 100th unit, Franz was torture and then thrown off a helicopter, not a cheap death so must be a high profile case he was after, Reacher now comes in to get to the bottom of this murder and make sure justice is serve in the name of his friend.

It would not be a Reacher episode without a proper kick ass, Reacher was minding his own business, buying a change clothe at a local store by the pound, it was funny that he even change clothe there and the puts the old one on the counter LOL, he sees this women doing multiple withdraws from an ATM and simple ask her if she has been carjacked, not sure how he got to that conclusion but most of the time you don’t care, when you watch this type of series or movies like John Wick all you want is massive shooting, kick ass fights, break some stuff and that’s is what Reacher is all about, they complement with a story but this is the perfect sample of a proper Reacher kick ass scene, if not the series would be very boring watch a big guy like him just doing investigator job. Reacher is like Bruce Banner transform into the Hulk but with a bit more of attitude and sarcasm, at the end he ask the kid if he wants to see his mom? jajajaja very funny scene.

An old friend and crew member, Frances Neagley; was trying to reach him since he had no where to be contacted at, as a last resource she use a clever way to send a distress call using his bank account, so when he pick up the recipe from the ATM, a deposit of $1.10 and then balance went to $1,030, this are the kind of things only people from the army of where the use this codes frequently are aware of on their daily routine, its like if I see 127.0.0.1 on my mind that’s HOME. Neagley the women with Reacher at the phone wanted to notify him Franz was murdered.

Reacher catch up with Neagley during breakfast after he flight to New York where she is at, a lot has happen since he has been out, this crew probably understood he wanted to be alone or that he didn’t care anymore, its either one of the two so they didn’t put that much effort to contact him but this time was different, one of them has been torture and murdered, not an event to swallow that easy so Neagley did everything she could to contact him. Episode one was either very predictable or its a trap for the viewer, right out of the start they are been follow everyone and two guys monitoring them, we see the one following them with the list of Reacher crew members, who do they work for? are they government? are they with the people who kill Franz? who the fuck they are?, if you ask any viewer the first though would be they are with the bad guys.

On top, Reacher calls O’donnell and told him where is he and Neagley are staying, latter on he shows up after Neagley’s room was turn apart, so it’s either some one else who is listening to their calls who did it or O’donnel is with the bad guys? see all the possibilities and outcomes of episode one? I’m 200% sure we will see some sort of treason against Reacher in the upcoming episodes, because some one who knows him and his ex crew is after them, Franz was the first victim.

Reacher is all about been just and defending the little one, even though the entire crew is mention on episode one there is very little known about them besides Neagley and O’donnell, she even mention Karla Dixon from Reacher crew that he liked her but never had anything with her because he was running the team, seem wrong for him, that kind of just guy. The rest of the crew only fill the space even Franz didn’t said much during the episode.

Remember how I said Reacher had their back? it was this scene where they got into a bar fight because it was a “officers only” bar and Neagley was Sergeant, that evening started boring, they didn’t know each other, O’donnell was constantly running his mouth about the rest, even Dixon said leaving after her first beer but it was that fight that make the crew stick together and bond at a camp fire, singing, drinking, that night Neagley probably became Reacher right hand, after all that is what he was looking for, a tight crew that stick together not a bunch of military police doing what they were told to do at the military.

Within the possible bad guys there is Mr. Mount who is always reading a comic book, using fake passports as he burn the one he was holding during this scene to then buy a few more from a random guy who makes them, it even makes me think he he has nothing to do with the other two guys from before, on this episode their names were not mention but I look them up on IMDB, there is also O’donnell who for the time is with Reacher but I don’t trust anyone other than Neagley for now.

After some data they found on a USB that Franz left behind, btw the USB had a password and it was Reacher, Franz always wanted to be like him. Reacher comes to the conclusion that they are after his old crew so they decided to get in contact with who ever they could, decided to visit Swan and found his dog Maisi dead, dehydrated, makes Reacher think Swan is dead too because he would not let this happen if he was able to come home.

Reacher: ATM – Season 2 – Episode 1 – RECAP - CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

Episode 1 of Reacher, Season 2; was great, not only we got two short kick as fight scenes, I would like the bar fight to show more but it was only to make a point, there is even a third fight, not really fight, where Reacher jump some local drug dealers just to release some steam, still great episode and I think the rating of 8.5/10 talks by itself, the entire season two has been release and most episodes have high scores, for me it is only and indicative although I don’t make my opinion out of review scores, after all something that I think can be solve if this sites run on a blockchain but that is a project I have in mind for the future since I’m not a developer.

Going back to the episode since I was getting out of track, this episode leaves a lot of questions, different than your traditional first episode where new characters are presented properly with some background, this time its a bit different since they were all mention but besides Neagley we are left knowing very little about the rest, it was a nine member crew, there is a lot to be unfold for the next seven episodes and this is something I have been thinking about, the amount of episodes for a good story is at minimum eight, best if its a ten episode season but I have notice that anything below six sux most of the time. I’m glad season two is this good, yes it still has that cliche of the big dumb guy who brakes stuff but not really, its different, smart big good guy who brakes stuff, not your usual army related tv series.

Fallout Tv Series 2024 - Fails before start? - INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Its not very often that I make a post about a trailer although this is a game adaptation to a TV series that many have been waiting for and past weekend drop a few trailer from other very popular TV Series, I have recently read a few post online and watch videos about how good or bad could this series be, for me it has not started so I can not tell if it will be any of the two, although I can give my opinion of my first impression and how I think some people feel about it based on what I have read or watch.

Fallout TV Series might fit, didn’t want to say fall; into a problem that seem to be eating alive all kind of good story or character now days, for example very recent Bob Iger from Disney said about their productions

“movies should “entertain first, not [push] messages”

Fans, that’s not me; want to watch a production as close as possible to the original story, Fallout has six games in total with probably plenty of material to make more than three seasons but there are already signs that the story is far from what the games are on top signs that the TV series will be pushing messages of awareness instead of focus on a post apocalyptic fiction story at the same time making it as close to what the game is.

From my understanding and it makes sense to give that suspense to the story no body knows who drop the first nuclear bomb but as it is shown on the trailer it was not one but many of them, by now nuclear shelters were a thing that there were many faults, on the TV series the main character Lucy, was on Vault 33, number on their uniforms and at the end on first image; I don’t know if the first episode starts with her going out because latter on the trailer she is shown inside the vault, probably they tell the story with a moving time line going back and forward, that is a common thing now days, point is she wants out and some of her partners did not like the idea, probably try to stop her as there is a guy on the floor and her lip has blood, this tells us Lucy probably knows how to throw her hands.

Different that most vault or silo TV series, Lucy makes it out of the Vault and starts exploring the Earth, everything is destroy, almost a huge desert although there is still water oceans exist, anything that remain out of the Vaults was most likely affected by radiation or climate, this is going to be a creepy show, look at the size of that cockroach, that’s what they call a rat-cockroach, things are the size of a Dog, there will be all kid of mutant creatures, some bigger, some totally different, production will let their creation fly with this creatures for entertainment purpose.

These scene right here is suppose to be off the game timeline, the explanation for this is that California can’t be this bad at the time the TV Series is happening, this speculations come from the fact that at the time of the series there is already a new order taking place, the NCR (New California Republic); trying to reestablish society, Fallout world is full of multiple tribes or groups of people from raiders, mutants and there is the NCR trying to bring everyone together under one regime, we won’t know if there is a timeline issue until the series release on April 2024 but fans need to understand and this is for everyone watching anything on TV, if its not a documentary it won’t be 200% accurate or not even close, that seem to be a new trend, I understand those who dream about watching their favorite character on a Movie or TV series but entertainment is first and by entertainment I mean money for the studios who produce them, I don’t make the rules.

There is going to be a lot of shooting on this series, from scenes inside the vault, things are not great, people are loosing their minds, not sure if its because they are sick of been lock down because everyone goes wild, like the women on this picture with a fork on her eye shooting at everyone, this images gives me vibes that this will be a very cynic type of series meaning might be the perfect scenario to push “messages” even during the trailer Lucy mention how she never imagine things would be like that outside the vault, she always had everything to survive inside and things are very different outside. For me most of this behaviors from a character don’t matter as long as its entertaining but the problem with that is they tend to deviate from the original story and that’s when true fans who have play the game in this case get piss off because the character is not acting as on the game, this is the production using the movie as a way to promote certain social messages trying to fix the world but shitting on the TV Series that is suppose to be a Game adaptation.

The Steel Brotherhood look very bad ass, this probably going to be one of the great attractions of the series, seen them shooting massive guns, fighting all kind of bandits, mutants and raiders, with their main porpuse as describe on Fallout Fandom Page, paramilitary order with chapters operating across the territory of the former United States … core purpose is to preserve advanced technology and regulate its usage; so I’m not sure if they are going to make tech illegal for others to use, after a nuclear war, holocaust like what is shown when all the Nukes hit USA, tech will become rare and powerful to have, most people will be riding animals or walking while the Steel Brotherhood transport using vehicles like the Vertibird.

The men or in this case based on game description Ghoul above, describe as The Ghoul on IMDB; might turn to be one of the main characters, hard to say if he will be friendly to Lucy but he will have his own story of how was his past life before the holocaust, there is a scene of him riding a horse wearing a Cowboy uniform yellow and blue with a girl most likely his daughter, the moment nukes hit the ground, on the game Ghoul are describe as men who survive the wasteland, feeding from radiation.

Bellow The Ghoul they show Maximus, at first he is seen flying on a Vertibird and now running after they get attack, he is the only one not wearing a Steel Armor, that factor makes him special to the story, as a regular viewer and not a fan who knows the story this tells me right from the start there will be multiple stories that at some point come together, so going back and forward on different timelines means to understand the series you will have to pay attention to it.

Fallout Tv Series 2024 - Fails before start? - CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

From the point of average viewer the series seems great, I expect a lot of comedy since when things are over exaggerated tend to funny and some times gross, action scenes look very cinematic, on the trailer its mention that the studios behind The Boys, if they can tone down the series it probably gets to that perfect balance where anyone can watch the show and don’t feel like its too cynic because that’s the main topic here, its everything goes on the wastelands and Lucy now has to survive, she wanted out and now has to learn this new world and find a safe place to stay to adapt, my opinion is DO NOT expect Fallout to be a top tier series like The Last of Us or House of Dragon.

  • The story might not be 100% as the games
  • They probably will rush things out

But if you are only looking for a series to kill time, laugh, a few dopamine rush and have that desire of exploring a new place, what would be Earth after a world wide nuclear bombing then I think Fallout will be an ok show, from the start a 7/10 its not crazy, probably a similar case like The Rings of Power where its not 100% as the original story but the action scenes, the production, the actors make it up to be an ok series.

Personally I don’t care if a Movie or a TV Series is “Canon” or not, I’m a fan of many stories and characters and if someone makes content that is good, entertaining out of this character and changes a couple of things as long as I have a good time I personally I’m fine with it, people have to accept, they don’t have to understand but to accept that is how the entertainment business works, games, comics, most adaptations wont be exactly as the original story for many factors, budget, time but a the same time producers, writers, they have to be very cautious not to rush things or deviate too much, for example Secret Invasion to me was an ok TV Series until episode five, shit hit the fan on episode five, they totally screw up the ending and I’m sure many Fallout fans will be led down by this tv series because the script and the story might not be the same as the games, six games that’s a lot to digest.

Secret Invasion: Harvest – Season 1 – Episode 5 – RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Episode five of Secret Invasion gives me a good idea of why viewers and fans were so mad about this series because you don’t necessary need to be a hard core fan to get to that conclusion, things really pick up a pace here and it was just too fast, the series at least might need another two episodes so it doesn’t feel that way, things did happen but they were closing matters scene after scene, probably concluding things just too fast.

Gravik is still after the Avengers DNA, he has a couple of abilities so far like transforming his lengths, arms; into roots so he can massively extend himself, pierce and make them also way bigger and heavy, another power he has is to regenerate himself from creating energy and what looks like super strength beast type but he still after other super powers but if you actually think about it Iron Man is very smart, Gravik is already strong as Hulk, may be control lighting like Thor but is that an ability of the hammer or himself?, the rest of the Avengers they all have suits or some other weapon except Captain Marvel and Captain America so what would he really need? only one I can think of is Captain Marvel’s powers so he could fly? he keeps talking about the Harvest but not Gravik or Fury go deeper of why unless they only fear/want the outcome mix of powers that could end up into something extraordinary, I feel like the episode has lack of meaning or motivation because the war between humans ain’t happening at this point after Fury clear things up by rescuing the President and soldiers saw Skrulls on the field, is up to Rhodey try to convince the president to start war against Russians.

I found really cringe how after saving the President Fury feels all tough takes a chair and puts in front of the hall door where the president’s room is at the hospital, not only because I knew he was not going to do shit, after all he is just human and for sure would not kill Rhodey on the spot if he comes close, besides he is never alone.

I suspected right, Rhodey did show up and was not alone, he is a Skrull, has the government infiltrated so either all the agents with are human tricked thinking Rhodey is himself a human or a bunch of Skrull that are up to date of whats really going on, he has Fury by the balls with the video that shows up him killing Maria at the Russia Bombing trying to put more dirt on Fury, he had no other option to leave before getting killed of before people come after him when the video goes public so yes Fury didn’t do shit and that’s why the scene of him sitting at the hospital looking all mean was worthless. I don’t appreciate when writers take a character and make it look what he is not, Fury has only one super power, same as Batman, Iron Man, that’s his mind so been tough is not it.

At Skrullos, Gravik is back and desperate, his plan to attack the US President and make it look like it was the Russian failed, although he did kill Thalos but Pagon, we can say Gravik second Skrull in command; was kind of mad at him and call him out because he had the chance to kill Fury and never did like he still a child waiting for Fury approval of attention. I have to give it to Gravik, Pagon was not looking at the big picture, Fury is the only one who knows where is the Harvest. To give a bit more of context, The Harvest is the recollection of the Avenger’s DNA after the New York attack, Gravik knows of its existence because he was one of the Skrulls that work on that mission, lead by Fury a group of Skrulls were send out to collect and clean up Avenger’s DNA from the battle field, I can’t imagine how they did that, the reason? not sure either because as I mention only a few really has super powers, the rest are humans with great skills using special suits or weapons.

At MI6 Sonya is cleaning up the house, taking down every Skrull she can find starting with the SIS chief Derrik, at first even Fury himself though that governments infiltrated by Skrulls was very unlikely although not impossible but after Thalos told him there were a million Skrulls at Earth, that number change things for him and put him and Sonya on alert that anyone could be a Skrull, but Sonya was a bit ruthless, shooting first and asking question after, its like she can smell them, latter on you will see why I say this.

Back at Skrullos after Gravik kill Pagon in front of the rest of his soldiers a revolution started, a group of other Skrulls understood Gravik was wrong, only those who were brave try to take him down but it was too much for them, Skrulls special ability is to shape shift, they are stronger than humans but not at Super Skrull, not at Gravik’s level, when they jump Gravik and he loose his human form intermediately he got a bit taller and bigger, everything about him compared to other Skrulls that have show up so far look stronger, eventually he beat up everyone and make an example out of Beto, a Skrull who G’iah got into the camp; cuts his throat in front of everyone. I know this series could be intended for teenagers too but the fighting and killing scenes are just a bit turn down, there is not much blood, after fights characters don’t look beat up and specially with Gravik fight scene there is something that I constantly criticize and that’s how the transformation scenes are soo short you cant really appreciate it, its just seconds until he turns back to normal, that’s really disappointing.

On her journey to clear up MI6, Sonya now locates Dr. Rosa Dalton, who is the lead scientist of Gravik’s Super Skrull experiments, she was working with her husband but here jumps in Sonya who right away knew Dr. Dalton is not himself anymore neither, after taking all the info that Sonya need she burn down their house and took them with her but Dalton attempt to take his “wife” Rosa as hostage and put a gun to her head trying to escape, little did he know and Sonya puts a bullet to his head some how she knew he was a Skrull. At fist I thought I would not like Sonya, this was back when she came up on episode one and had a conversation with Fury but I really like her, she is funny AF and always ahead of others.

In his attempt to get the Harvest, Gravik tries to use Skrullos as leverage, ordering Rhodey to get the president to bomb Skrullos with the excuse that its a Skrull hideout at Russian soil, only problem is that the right way to proceed is to have the Russians work with US to take out the Skrulls but then again who is not a Skrull? they just hold this scene and nothing really happens about it on this episode, I’m ok with that, I don’t think they are going to blow up Skrullos, not because there are Skrulls but because that would be start a war with Russia at the same time.

There was a very cool shooting scene at Priscilla’s place, G’iah goes looking for her to bury her father Thalos, Skrulls has certain ways and traditions, some of them G’iah didn’t know about but she wanted to give her father a traditional Skrull funeral, G’iah might disagree with her father believes but still love him very much and now feels she must avenge him, bring down Gravik, after all Thalos was the OG Skrull general on Earth but he became old and soft.

This last scene with Fury and Sonya getting up to date after she picks him up from the air port was cool, it gives more context to the Harvest, he gave her more details on how things really happen and why Gravik knows about it, but the part that I like the most is how Fury explains his only super power is his mind and that he doesn’t need anything else to beat Gravik here comes the phrase “We cant keep depending on these superheroes”

Secret Invasion: Harvest – Season 1 – Episode 5 – RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

First four episodes of secret invasion were fine, I didn’t see any problem that was critical to me, the story was at an ok pace and not many details were lost but episode five turn things around, as I mention there was a void like some scenes needed more time to digest, I also think that from the start some how the story should make clear that the Avengers were not coming to help period, I think that probably mislead some viewers but not necessary the reason why I feel things start to rush, the Sonya scenes trying to clean up the UK and their agencies felt bit short, now that I think about it, it has been the same every time she shows up, the Fury scene at the start of the episode didn’t help at all, I would prefer if it was the opposite saying he go and look for Rhodey and face him or something different but sitting there like he is Captain America make his character look stupid.
I look up the ratings per episode at IMDB and you can tell how episode five and six are what took Secret it Invasion from a solid seven to a six down the drain, so I do not expect things to get better, some say its super hero exhausted but its really not, its the attention to detail and taking the time to explain things at a pace that viewers don’t feel things are rushing up, this are the moment I would expect them to milk the story and they don’t, if it had to do with lack of time because they were short on staff, Hollywood strike; then it was better just not to release and do it properly,

The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon - Deux Amours - Episode 5 - Season 1 - RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Episode five of Daryl Dixon will answer many questions, from why Daryl ended in France, why Genet wants him, I would not say dead but lock down at least even before Codron, Daryl always kept saying he ended up in France because he join the wrong people and he was looking for something new out there but on this episode the truth comes to light, same goes for Genet experiments with Zombies, everything comes together and start to build up for next season.

I believe this new format of six episode season for spinoff series can’t build up enough momentum for itself with the short amount of episodes, a lot can happen in one hour with the magic of TV, adding two or if possible four episodes more then gives the story enough time for one last kick, on Daryl Dixon spinoff the series is going to fall short and viewers will have to wait until season two to really find out why he left home and now is trying to get back to Carol, we now know how he got to France but not what exactly he was looking for.

Not much is reveal about the Nest, the place where Azlan and Daryl are taking Laurent, from his description all been said is that its a quite place, peaceful and might be an island from a watch Azlan carry with the Nest engrave, the name Nest most like was given after the Zombie Apocalypse, living in an island is one of the most reasonable places to be at during such times as long as you have a way to go in and out of the island, after all Zombies can’t swim, but I wonder if they float?? on this very same series we saw a Daryl been attack by Zombies under water.

I took this screenshot above mainly because it reminds me of the original Walking Dead series, how many times we didn’t see Daryl pushing a bike with his cross bow on it, such a classic it made its way to his spinoff, he cross path with Jones a man who has a camp, looking for hunters who want to work, Daryl is out of gas so makes sense if he gets paid to buy some and get back home.

At the camp there were others wanting to work with Jones, the man behind this camp, paying everyone was Dr. Lafleur, who was paying very well for Zombies, even more for fresh ones but that open, rules were simple

  • No fights
  • No stealing
  • Nothing sexual

I get the two first rule but what the hell is sexual about a bunch of guys hunting Zombies, its the apocalypse so I guess there are not many women around so some might change their sexual preferences, who knows.

Daryl got to work and start impressing other with his skills, if he was getting paid for catching Zombies I guess he was going to pull a Raikkonen, for F1 fans; and make the company go broke with the amount of Zombies he was getting, one after another, the part is that he works alone meaning he doesnt have to share his profits with anyone while the rest does.

Daryls always mind his own business but does not share or promote abuse, there was a guy a the camp who knew shit how to hunt, wanting to join others to team up but no body wanted him so what they do? there was this guy Juno, white beard with red hat; motherfucker killed the kid and sold him as a Zombie, Daryl got into a fight over it because the guy even had rope marks around his neck so he was killed, Jones didn’t seem to care it was still a Zombie and they were all getting paid so both Juno and Daryls gets kick out the moment the fight starts….to be continue

On another subject, our boy Quinn was living like a fucking king, a lot of people die and a lot of people left Paris, a wealthy city with a lot of opportunities for those brave enough who stay and we willing to take it, that was Quinn, he got everything, the mansion, the luxury, wine, paintings, servants, everything anyone could dream off, he also had his Queen, Anna; until after many years destiny brought him back Isabelle, the women he was dating before the Zombie apocalypse who left him behind to safe her sister that had Quinn’s son on the way, Laurent, that’s a Mexican tv novel right there.

Poor Quinn flew too close to the sun and is about to get burn, never ever mistreat a women specially when she got enough dirt on you, not that you have but specially not under certain circumstances, in the case of Quinn, Anna knew everything about him, his business, deals with Genet, enemies. On top of that Isabelle only got with him until she make sure Laurent and Daryl got out of town safe, when that happen she was about to kill Quinn but her dark days were over, she might not be a hard core nun but she was no murder, she could not do it.

On the other hand Anna did throw Quinn into the lions den, the moment she had a chance fuck him up badly, Quinn was invited to an event at Genet base but when he and Isabelle arrive Genet already know all the lies Quinn told her about Laurent and Daryl.

This duo, oh since the day they met at the convent, Daryl constantly gets piss off at Laurent, mainly because he is so naive and that is Isabelle fault, this time he did one of the most stupid things and that’s letting go the boat because he didn’t want Daryl to leave him, Isabelle fault again for not raising him to be a men and not just a kid in a bubble, they had no other option than walk, to make things worst that night their camp got attacked by a few Zombies that killed Azlan.

So predictable, the moment they start walking a patrol was passing by, Daryl gave the watch with the engrave of the Nest to Laurent and told him to go away, he will take care of them but he didn’t and gets caught too, you can tell how piss Daryl was when he notice Laurent got caught too, he sacrifice himself for nothing.

They both get transfer to Genet place where she is hosting and event, a display of her new warriors, her plan with Laurent is to make people in France believe Laurent is on her side since he got so popular.

I got now clew when the memo that said “If you fight we send you to the Zombie ship” got pass around, out of no where Daryl and Juno get send to the boat they were putting all the Zombies, the ship was also a lab so it seems they travel the world by sea, during this time they make experiments and kept getting Zombies from the never ending supply.

This is the reason why Genet wants Daryl dead, he was the one who got out and fucked up everything, he trick the guards to get out, kill a few of them, in the process a container got on fire, this container was a mobile lab, creating a big explosion that fucked up big part of the boat and all the progress to the drain.

The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon - Deux Amours - Episode 5 - Season 1 - RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

Episode five was very entertaining, the only detail missing is why they got send to the boat, that doesn’t make sense and they probably skip the part, if you fight you get send to the boat, everything else was great, this was really a satisfactory episode because now it makes more sense how Daryl got to France and Genet experiments too. On previous episodes all we saw was a Zombie getting injected who went crazy to then had his head explode but on this episode we saw Daryl fight a Zombie like it was a fucking fighter, he move different, was fast, no intelligent but almost had him besides the Zombie took everything Daryl throw at him, I wonder if Daryl jump off the boat if the Zombie would follow him, probably the Zombie didn’t because of the explosion.

This series is getting better but now I only have one episode left to watch, my only concern about long series episodes, those that are close to one hour is that there is a fucking tone of scenes I like to screenshot because they give sense to the story, leaving me with over 30 screenshots every time I make a post like this, the editing process takes me about two hours plus another hour writing the text, still this is my hobby that now I have found a way to monetize thanks to Hive.

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.

As any other first episode its time to present all different main characters and provide context, meaning to their stories, on the image above Kate, a women who her father “died” or disappear, at this point she and her mom are not sure what happen, looking for answers she goes to Tokyo after finding a set of keys to an apartment and probably documentation that tells her about her father apartment in Tokyo.

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.

Kate gets to her fathers apartment to figure out he had a second wife and son that no body in the US knew about, there is confusion all over the scene but this is the part that annoys me, how Kate and Kentaro fight about their father, both in a position that one of the is lying instead of trying to figure things out.

Kentaro and his mother Emiko cools down but Kate is just a spoiled brat and kept acting like a bitch about her father cheating trying to make Kentaro and Emiko like he is a bastard, that sux and is very shitty from her. Emiko is a sweet women, very patient, before Kate left to the airport an alarm sound off, possible Godzilla attack and everyone ran into the subterranean, Kentaro and Emiko help Kate to cool down and at that moment when she felt vulnerable and supported my Emiko she cools down and lower her guard.

To clear things out and find out exactly what their father was up to, Kentaro takes Kate to his father office, where they kept arguing because Kate is still bitching about her father secret life, they found a safe in the wall with a bunch of recordings and there is when the adventure to figure out what their father work with and potentially what happen to him but they need help to read all this very old data.

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 Patient: Pastitsio – Episode 5 – RECAP

The Patient: Pastitsio - Episode 5 - RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

Episode five proves more my theory that Sam kills people because he wants attention and is a little bitch but then when he get the attention from others don’t know what to do or react, him killing people is a reaction to his impotency to confront his father now as an adult, when he was a kid he couldn’t but now that he has enough age to do it his father is not around anymore so he just take on other people who bother him in some way turning him into a bully, I know this is not his fault but he also doesn’t do that much to take responsibility and act as a child, may be that trauma never let him grow up and inside he still feels like that child that was abused by his father but now inside the body of a grown man. Alan was making some progress with Sam since he got him to do a few things to get distracted but fall into what I think is a mistake, he initially got Sam to stay away from Elias, his victim, to distract his mind from that impulse to kill Elias but then ask Sam to bring Elias so they can have a session? that doesn’t make any sense to me, everything is so soon for it to work as Alan was expecting.

On this episode we also see Cadence, Sam’s mom, for the first time getting control of the situation but at the same time its just so lame how she would think a simple hit on the risk would stop a serial killer, she also needs therapy, both been in jail or some kind of institution away from society until they get better, but this is not 100% her fault neither as she is/could also be mentally and emotional affected by everything that happen with Sam’s father, this family is an entire mess, keep in consideration that we have no information or feedback from what exactly and why Sam’s father abuse him, I give it the benefit of the doubt since Sam and Cadence are not mentally well, you cant believe everything people say.

Sam goes visit his ex wife Mary, she seems nice and pretty, welcome him and invite him insight to talk but she look scared when Sam told her he was taking therapy, may be she thought “finally” or probably he had taken therapy in the past and didnt work, my point is that she doesnt seem too sure to be next to him but still got him inside and try to talk to Sam, he look nervous and the total opposite of what he told Alan he was with Mary, he came up with any topic and stay quiet most of the time, it was Mary who kept trying to be open to him, there were a few moments I thought we was going to openly tell her why he is in therapy and even that he has a guy kidnap, something crazy but it didnt happen, that would turn up this episode so much. I think Sam lie to Alan about Mary or may be things have change so much for him that he is not the same around her.

Source

Back at Sam’s home where Elias and Alan remain prisoners, Elias is trying to get Alan to team up with him and knock out Sam, he offer Alan to bring him into the therapy session and then he would throw himself at Sam so Alan can beat him but the answer to that is obvious and I already know it, Alan wont do it, he wont risk it because he knows Sam is stronger, if something goes bad its Elias fault since he is the one that came up with the idea but he feels there is no hope for him.

Alan and Elias had this moment where he ask Elias to bring a message to his family in case he dies but I think that was just give some hope to Elias saying he is the one that is going to escape the situation alive.

Source

After Sam gets back from Mary’s place he start talking with Alan and tells him how it didn’t work, talking to Mary didn’t make him think different about Elias but I know that was not Alan point, he wanted to show Sam how he can stay away from Elias and eventually forget about him for some time but Sam wants results for yesterday like its as simple as taking a pill. Sam got angry and was going to kill Elias but Sam calls Cadence and all it took was two claps and a “Get back here” for Sam to stop, WTF why no body gave Alan the Sam manual where it says the instructions, Sam definitely still has this child complex and proof is that his mom still can send him to his room and ground him.

This episode is also proof that been on the edge every five minutes that Sam is going to kill Elias is what keeps this exciting but at some point its getting old so the writer needs to make a decision quick to keep viewers interested and its a very obvious one.

Source

After his mother told him to go to sleep and send him to his room, after some time Sam comes back down to talk with Alan, he had this object on his hand that I thought it was a key, may be a key to free Alan but it look like he didn’t notice because if he did he would be interested and ask Sam to free him up, instead he start explaining Sam none of this is his fault and its a reaction to all those bad memories with his father and how he is taking it with the rest of the world, how none of this people are trying to harm him but he feels this way as an excuse to explode angry at them when he is really angry at his father.

I don’t know if Alan for real try to make Sam understand this by himself and brought Elias into the session or he was going with Elia’s plan to take down Sam.

Source

Alan is suppose to be a well known therapist with lots of experience but I think the situation and pressure is making him take wrong decisions, Sam told him that bringing Elias to the session wouldn’t work, it only make things worst for him, you have a dog barking at you none stop every time you get close to the gate and he just got his chain loose what do you expect if you get inside the yard. Sam makes Alan bring Elias in and all it took was Elias to start crying and stuttering because he couldn’t manage the pressure of been blind by duct tape in front of a guy who wants to kill him, Sam jumps Elias and choke him to death, that’s how we got to the cover picture of this post.

The Patient: Pastitsio - Episode 5 - CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

After this episode I think Sam needs guidance but with an iron fist, he needs someone who can control him and tell him what to do, he also needs to stay away probably lock down in a facility where he can rehabilitate and get over this trauma, keep getting therapy with his mother too but it would depend if they both want it because both of the are acting very irresponsible even his mother knowing his son is a murder, as for Alan he is not handling well the pressure even if he appears to be but the truth is that he is starting to take desperate decisions and that’s why Elias is dead but cant blame him, going through all that he cant stop thinking about his family and the possibility that he wont see them again, most of the episodes are worth watching packed with intensity, stress, keeping me thinking is he going to kill him? is it now? is Alan next? but now we get to the point that Sam finally killed someone and in front of Alan so will this become a regular thing for them?

The Patient: Company – Episode 4 – RECAP

The Patient - Company - Episode 4 RECAP INTRODUCTION - www.skiptvads.blog

I think Alan is starting to make some progress with Sam, on this episode Alan tries his best to keep Sam distant from his victim, I think I mention this on the previous episode, to overcome this kind of impulse you need to physically stay away from it, confront it doesn’t work for everyone at first, some times confront it make it worst since not everybody works the same and the subject may lack the strength to prevent himself to fall into the same steps, for Sam staying away from the victim, staying busy works the best. Alan is starting to test the waters of trust with Sam to the point where he tells Sam what to do and then flinch but the second time comes with more authority when he tells Sam to go to work and he notice how Sam took his direction, for Sam to get better he needs to obey Alan instructions since he is the expert and Alan reminds him of that “you brought me in because I’m the expert, trust me” that was Alan words when Sam was getting very very close to loose it. There are times when I see the episode from another perspective and think Sam is a bitch, needy mf who probably like to bully others, he says that he wants to punish them for how they do things like the guy he has right now he bend a few rules so he needs to be punish but Sam probably either attack him from the back or the guy cant defend himself so he is this kind of avenger on his head but he is just a abusive guy who makes an excuse that his father beat him up when he was a kid and now has this compulsive disorder to kill people who are out of line on this world but at the same time he just keep bitching about it and the way he walks or how he stop for a min when Alan ask him to go to work, open his mouth and stop like “OMG OMG I CANT OMG I CANT”, different than other three episodes I’m starting not to like the way Domhnall is developing the Sam character at least for now.

Another thought about Alan, he is really starting to struggle with how Sam at times could be some calm, smile and openly talk about other things like music but then be so violent and abusive, how he brought Elias Petraki his victim to the point it disturb him and cant rest, I could think his Sam’s mother might have to do with it too because how could you live with a serial killer even though its your son without stopping him or at least get someone to help him but not like they have Alan chain to the floor.

Time locked up and chain to the floor plus Sam behavior where some times eh can be gentle, funny, talk about community, love, have fun, all those things that contradict what he is currently doing, systematically killing people, planing how to do it without remorse, all that is taking the best part of Alan to the point he cant sleep he cant rest well and who can when you are kidnap, force to provide therapy to a guy that is only bitching about how he cant stop killing people and how he is the judge of those out of line in life who are bending rules or not doing things as he see fit.

Source

Inside Sam twisted mindset he must be very tough to kill a guy who only took advantage of the system without really making any harm to him, that’s not an excuse to kidnap someone and wanting to kill him besides they guy is tight up blind folded so how is he going to kill him, at such disadvantage I don’t see how that goes hand to hand with though man Sam. Alan still finds the patience and time to focus on the things that matter and tries to control Alan, he is making progress by keeping him away from his victim, at least this time as describe by Sam, he did stop before killing his victim and that’s why he brought it home although this is the clear scenario of someone who is only looking for attention, a man who only seeks blood would not act like this although he is looking for help that’s a positive sign, we might argue that’s how and unbalance person acts and why he is mentally sick.

Source

Alan convince Sam to go to work he try to give him an order and felt scared of how Sam would react, he at first flinch but then repeat himself when he notice it did work. Sam goes to work kicking and bitching how he cant do it, Alan is now talking with Elias, Sam’s victim, they restaurant manager that he kidnap, they talking about whats going to happen, the guy is shitting bricks and crying, then this is another twisted character that needs therapy or be in jail, Sam’s mother comes down probably heard them talking but she comes down with a metal bar, looks like fire place poker if that’s the name, what are her intentions to wack them? shut them off? defend herself? after all they just talking no direct harm to her, could we see her attack Alan in the future? She keeps talking about how Sam feels sorry, how he wants to stop but that’s not of Alan interest, he keeps sucking information out of her trying to understand why Sam feels and acts this way to guide him or even “cure” him and may be get out of this situation alive.

Source

Something that I like about this mini series is the format, this are very short episodes but for it to work it has to be intense when the main characters are on the same room, that is Sam and Alan, every time Sam shows up its either Alan wanting to kill him or Sam wanting to kill Elias, after a few sentences some one has to think or talk about murder and be very close to it and then stop, at some point this is going to change, from pictures and the trailer I know Sam beat up Alan once but I don’t want to spoil it, this is why this mini series is good although as you can tell on this episode I had enough of Sam complains.

Sam comes back from work and he looks tired, Alan had this call with him a the moment he wanted to come back home and killed Elias but Alan manage to keep him at work that probably took some effort from Sam, like controlling himself is taking a lot of his energy but at least he keeps coming back to talk to Alan so all this effort of Alan keeping him away from the victim is taking effect.

Source

Towards the end of the episode Alan confirm a few theory I had about Sam and its that he attack people from the back so the though guy story falls down here, Alan is now ordering Sam to do things to keep him away from Elias, just as he order him to go to work he now told him to go see his ex wife since that might keep his mind distracted away from Elias and at the end tells him to trust him because he is the expert.

Elias once told Alan “this guy must really trust you” since he mention his hands were free, Alan has been trying to get Sam to unchain him since day one and tell him to trust him this time but I don’t think he will ever do it, Sam knows the minute he unchain Alan that bird goes out the window.

The Patient - Company - Episode 4 RECAP CONCLUSION - www.skiptvads.blog

Alan therapy and guidance is starting to take effect on Sam, he is now ordering Sam to do things to keep his mind busy and away from Elias, the restaurant manager he kidnap and want to kill, not only Alan is telling Sam what to do to avoid killing Elias but also tells him to TRUST HIM!! this is going to be a key factor so he can make his attempt to escape, to be honest I don’t think he will be able to, I haven’t finish the end of this mini series at the moment I write this post but I think the odds are not in Alan favor, he is older, its two against one, Sam and his mother, plus he is chained to the floor, I don’t see how he can escape alive alone, probably if he helps Elias they can join forces to get out but someone is going to die at the end, also I don’t see this as a gore series so I don’t think Sam is going to be doing the killing because if he does it has to be very very violent although a Alan character would be tone down and more suited to the mood of the series.
