    The trouble with 2-issue minis is that there's gotta be more going on than just what you'd have in a quick one-shot; and being two issues is a whole different thing than a double-sized one-shot...to me, at least. All the more here, as the characters are new to me, and I think actually new characters, period: barely begin to get to know what they're about and the story's over with.

    After the setup stuff in the first issue, this picks up with our elven friend and dwarf facing a city of madness, one of the Old Ones having appeared in the sky and causing all this trouble. The two figure out a way they might be able to stop this giant threat from destroying everything they know, which leads to them kidnapping a bunch of wizards and putting them to work on the plan. And though things don't go quite as smoothly as they'd hope, there is a quick conclusion, and they're left to bicker like some odd couple.

    I love the concept: IDW has the license to a number of different properties, so have some multi-dimensional crisis, and it can affect all these different planes, which means that without crossing the characters themselves over with each other, it can still be one big story that involves all these properties. ...

    Archer
    Episode 309 –Bloody Ferlin
    Aired February23rd, 2012
    10 PM, FX

    Although the title of this episode may make you think this episode is a parody of FX's other really great show, Justified, it's not. Well, it is if you limit it to the episode's title alone. No, as Archer says, it's closer in spirit to White Lightning, an old Burt Reynolds film (well of course). Archer and Lana respond to a break in at ISIS's armory,only to find the person responsible is Ray … who is no longer confined to a wheelchair. Seems he never needed it at all, it was just that everyone assumed he was since he left the hospital in one,and he figured he'd play along, if only to screw with them. Kind of a cheat, but I'll allow it, because everybody in ISIS is a vaguely horrible human being in some respect. (Malory may have no redeeming qualities whatsoever.)


    Anyhoo, it seems Ray's brother down in West Virginia is a pot farmer, and a dirty local Sheriff is threatening to kill him and take over his operation, so Ray is going to help him, because that's what family does. Even though Ray isn't all that wild about his brother, who also thinks he's straight and married to a woman. Archer decides to help because it sounds a bit like the plot of White Lightning, and because he's thinking of moonshine and hot to trot farmer's daughters.

    Supernatural
    Episode 715 – Repo Man
    Aired February 17th, 2012
    9 PM,CW

    There has to be an interesting story in the aftermath of Sam and Dean's methods, and their effects on the innocent people caught in their war on demons. This isn't it, but for a moment, there was promise.


    We open on a flashback that never actually happened (but could have),with Sam and Dean and a woman (a psychic or a witch? I wasn't sure …) violently interrogating a demon which has possessed a man and madehim violently kill a few women. After getting the okay from the human, they proceed to torture the demon until it tells them what they want to know, and then they exorcise the demon from his body.They drop the injured man off at an ER and leave.

    The cast of a reality TV show survives a disaster – but now they’re living on borrowed time.

    The latest season of the reality TV show “Challengers,” a survivalist program, is hoping to find the spark that it used to have with a crew of “celebrity” contestants. Like most reality shows, the “celebrities” seem to be a mixture of has-beens and wanna-bes, but unlike most reality shows, the whole thing is derailed when the plane transporting them to the filming location crashes into a mountain. Everybody but the pilot, miraculously, wakes up unharmed in the land of Nanda Parbat. And from there, things get interesting.

    Thus far, Infestation 2 has felt somewhat more forced than the original. The zombie premise of the first one has been abandoned, this time with creatures from the Cthulhu mythos breaking the veil between realms and causing trouble. To my surprise, the introduction of the monster to this Dungeons and Dragons setting has given us a really entertaining comic book.
