Spoiler-Free Review of “October Faction” on Netflix: Freakish Potential with Flat Delivery

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

A Mr. and Mrs. Smith type couple that fights supernatural monsters while balancing in some normal family drama.  Sounds like it could be oozing with eerie potential.

October Faction premiered on Netflix on January 23rd 2020 with 10 new episodes (40 minutes in length).  It stars Tamara Taylor, J.C. MacKenzie, Aurora Burghart, Gabriel Darku, and Maxim Roy.

The show is based on the comic series, The October Faction, introducing us to the Allen family.  After a family tragedy, The Allens move back to their hometown, but the supernatural threats continue to track them down.  Deloris and Fred’s twin children, Viv and Geoff, also deal with their own share of issues, especially when they start to discover that they may have some supernatural abilities of their own.

This is not the first time we have seen a horror/supernatural series try to balance out monsters and demons with family drama.  Think of successful series like Supernatural, Charmed, and Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House.  While the show has a lot of promise and potential, it seems like a lot of it was stifled by the uninspiring execution, along with the timing of being released the day prior to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

That being said, October Faction does have some redeeming qualities, but is it worthy of your next binge-watch?  Let’s find out…

The Pros:

A fantastic villain with otherworldly abilities.

Played by Maxim Roy, Alice, really breathes new life into the show.  The mystery surrounding her is the most intriguing part of the series and she really performs some cringe-worthy acts with her powers that will make you think twice about going up against her.

Likable characters.

The Allen family may have a lot of dark secrets, but they also deal with everyday problems as well.  The balance works well, as we leave the monster hunting in the background and focus on the character dynamics.

The twins, Viv and Geoff, have to deal with a lot of identity searching in high school and their performances are believable and captivating.  Plus, they have some pretty awesome abilities too!

The Cons:

Way too much set-up in the opening episodes.

The show starts off really slow and boring with a few sprinkles of potential here and there, but it was honestly a struggle to watch episodes 1-3.  Normally, if this was a weekly show, I would have tuned out by now, but I gave it a chance since I could watch all the episodes at once.

Surprisingly, episodes 4-9 are actually quite brilliant and the plot really takes off with interesting twists and reveals.  However, I can’t ignore the fact that the first three episodes are just so uninspiring and I have a feeling many of you might tune out.  However, if you are willing to take a chance, episode 4 is where things really start to pick up.

So am I in or out?

This is a tough one.  I’m in for episodes 4-9, which were binge-watch worthy, but overall, I am out because the opening episodes were so dull and the ending was kind of all over the place.  I’m frustrated about this one because this show could have been fantastic and it almost felt rushed and clumsily put together.

I would recommend that you watch shows like Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Light as a Feather first if you are looking for an entertaining supernatural watch, but if you are willing to put the work into watching October Faction, there are some entertaining moments sprinkled in.

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on October Faction in the comments section below.  Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 10: “Monday Monster Mayhem”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 10, we learned that the hero thing is not always fun and sometimes it’s up to the guest star to save the day, but is being downgraded to normal right for the Winchesters?

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “The Heroes’ Journey,” Sam and Dean run into some bad luck, as they head out to help their old friend, Garth.  Meanwhile, an underground monster fight club is making waves, but what will happen when our favorite hunters end up as the main event?

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 10 are:

5

“We’re cursed.”

Sam and Dean start off their day with a normal routine.  Sam decides to cook and Dean wants to stock up on supplies, but the day begins to get a little bit strange when one bad thing happens after another. 

Dean’s special credit card from Charlie gets declined, Sam comes down with a cold, and even Baby breaks down.

I wish Charlie could have hooked me up with one of those hacked credit cards too!

4

“I sort of named him after you….”

Sam and Dean get a call from Garth and decide to head out to help him.  Garth is enjoying life as a family man, cherishing the little things in life.  He may be a werewolf now, but it looks like things are working out for him after all.

Sam and Dean meet his baby twins named Sam and…Castiel.  Poor Dean!

They are really adorable though!

3

“Let’s misbehave.”

Dean’s bad luck continues as his teeth start to really hurt.  Luckily, Garth is now a dentist, but we learn that Dean has never been to the dentist before and now apparently has 17 cavities.  Yikes, it’s time to start flossing!

Meanwhile, Garth’s wife offers to help Sam with his cold and gives him a home remedy to try…filled with cayenne pepper.

At least it’s not all bad, as Garth puts Dean to sleep while he works on his teeth, allowing us to see Dean channel his inner Gene Kelly in black and white.  I have to say that the tap dancing was fantastic.  Dean can sing, dance, and fight monsters.  Is there anything he can’t do?

“Then I guess we need a grenade launcher.”

Sam and Dean find out about an underground monster fight club and decide to check it out, but Sam reminds him that they can’t really bust in there with guns blazing since they are normal now.

Sam and Dean stock up on weapons, but wind up in trouble when they end up as the main event for Monday Monster Mayhem.

Watch out, guys!

1

“I learned from the best.”

The heroes don’t always have to save the day, as Sam and Dean wind up in quite a bit of trouble.  Luckily, Garth comes to their rescue and does some serious damage with a hunter’s best friend…C-4.

The monsters get Garthed for sure, but Garth reminds Sam and Dean that he learned from the best.  He tells them that there is this place in Alaska where they can potentially get their luck back, but what kind of catch will it involve?

Overall, I thought this was a fun episode filled with the Winchester fluff I have come to know and adore.  As we now approach the second half of the final season, I’m hoping that we can balance in some more fun episodes to remind us why we all fell in love with this series in the first place.

Stay tuned SPN family!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” Season 15 Episode 9: “I Hate Missing my Favorite Show”

Happy Friday TV fans!  After watching The CW’s Supernatural season 15 episode 9, we learned that hope can be extremely powerful, but when you break that last remaining glimmer, is it truly gone forever?

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet. 

In last night’s episode, “The Trap,” Chuck kidnaps Sam and Eileen and is determined to sever his connection with Sam once and for all.  Meanwhile, Dean and Castiel head to Purgatory to find the Leviathan Blossom, running into some threats along the way.

My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 15 episode 9 are:

5

“All good things must come to an end.”

Sam wakes up to discover that Chuck is holding him and Eileen captive in a casino.  Chuck reminds Sam that they are still connected, which is keeping him trapped and weak.  Sam tries to stay strong, as Chuck begins to reveal his plan, hoping that Dean and Castiel can get to them before it’s too late.

4

“That’s the way we’ll save Sam and that’s the way we’ll save the world.”

Wise words indeed, Castiel.  After Eileen tries to call for help, Dean wants to rush in to save Sam, but Castiel reminds him not to be stupid.  He explains that they only have a small window to retrieve the Leviathan Blossom from Purgatory, which will save Sam and the rest of the world.

Dean will do anything to save his brother, but Castiel continues to be the voice of reason here, recognizing that sometimes sacrifice is necessary for the good of the world.

3

“This is gonna hurt her as much as it hurts you.”

As Chuck begins to reveal his plan, we learn that he used Eileen to spy on the Winchesters.  He forces Eileen to start cutting away at Sam’s wound against her will and by the end of the episode, Eileen is ready to part ways with Sam, not sure if anything is real.

However, Sam gives her a swoon-worthy kiss and tells her that it is real, but it looks like Eileen may be safer away from Sam right now until he is off Chuck’s radar.

2

“You don’t have to say it.”

After Dean and Castiel run into some threats in Purgatory and get separated, Dean takes a moment to himself to admit that he was wrong and to tell Castiel that he forgives him.  Later when they are reunited, Castiel tells him that he doesn’t have to say anything and that he heard his prayer, providing us with a heartwarming Destiel moment for sure!

1

“I will make it better.”

Chuck gives Sam the opportunity to see the future, as we get several glimpses from Sam’s perspective.  In this future world, all of their friends are dead or gone except for Jody and other Bobby, but this future is dark and hopeless, as even Dean begins to give up.

The watch Sam holds stops on December 9th 2022, as Chuck explains that this is the end of the line.  Sam watches in horror as he and Dean are turned into vampires and killed by their friend, but he tells Chuck that there has to be another way to make it better.

Chuck reminds Sam that without him, the monsters will devour the world and take over, giving Sam something to really think about.  When Dean and Castiel show up to save the day, Sam cannot go through with smashing the Leviathan Blossom, recognizing that he has to protect the world.

Chuck is ultimately set free by breaking Sam’s hope, so now we have that to worry about that.  Later on, Dean reminds him that they will not give up and they will find another way, as we are left with a huge cliffhanger at the end, flashing to Jack and Billie in The Empty.

Is Jack somehow the loophole to stop Chuck’s plan for good?  Can Sam and Dean re-write Chuck’s story or are they destined to repeat the memories of other Sams and Deans from alternate realities?

I’m confident that the Winchester brothers will be able to write their own stories, as we inch closer and closer to the end of our beloved series, but will it end the way we expect?

Stay tuned SPN family!

Spoiler-Free Review of “The Witcher” on Netflix: Monsters, Magic and Melody

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

The world of a dark fantasy can be somewhat confusing, but with Henry Cavill’s portrayal of Geralt of Rivia, all bets are off.  We are quickly immersed into a world filled with terrifying nightmares, dark magic, and war, as we are reminded quite often about the importance of destiny while bursting into some welcomed song.

The Witcher began streaming episodes on Netflix as of December 20th 2019 and currently features eight episodes for season one.  Each episode is about an hour, so leave plenty of time to watch this.  It stars Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, and Anya Chalotra.  If you are worried about the cliffhanger ending at the end of season one, fear not!

The Witcher has already been confirmed and renewed for season two by Netflix.

Based on the popular video games and book series, The Witcher follows Geralt of Rivia on his monster hunting quest, as he tries to find his own purpose in the world while battling the forces of evil on a daily basis.  His destiny is linked to Princess Ciri, who ends up on the run during the war, and to Yennefer of Vengerberg, a powerful mage with her own inner demons.

Does The Witcher measure up to all the hype?  Let’s find out…

The Pros:

The Witcher Netflix 1

Wonderful characters and performances.

If you were worried about Henry Cavill, don’t be.  He’s absolutely fantastic!  Once you get over his tone of voice, you will thoroughly enjoy his performance.  Some of my favorite moments include the dynamic between him and the bard, giving us a lot of unexpected comedy and fun banter.

My favorite character is definitely Yennefer of Vengerberg, however.  Her story is so intriguing and interesting.  I got some Melisandre vibes from Game of Thrones, but that is not a bad thing at all.  I’m always more interested in the darker anti-hero rather than a character who is so obviously good.

Gore, action, and passion.

The Witcher is definitely not for the faint of heart.  The battle scenes are intense and there are some disturbing images and moments that I am still cringing over.  Of course these moments are also balanced out with a lot of sex scenes, but that’s to be expected.  I don’t think that anything was overdone or over-the-top, however.

The Cons:

The Witcher Netflix 2

A lot of characters and time jumps.

So, when you play a video game, you get a guide to reference and I often felt like I needed one of my very own to keep track of everyone.  There is a lot jam-packed into eight episodes and you really need to pay attention.

I also thought the time jumps were slightly confusing.  I didn’t get any text clues as to where we were in time and I had to figure it out on my own.  Again, I don’t really think this was a huge issue, but I did feel like I needed to take notes to figure out some things…

So am I in or out?

The Witcher Netflix 3

I’m in 100 percent!  Wow, this may be one of the best shows I have watched all year.  I’ll be honest, I went into this show expecting to be confused and overwhelmed.  I am familiar with the video games and books, but I wouldn’t say that I am that well versed in either.

From my understanding, the show fits in somewhere between these plots while giving us enough of a unique story, but you can watch this show without knowing anything about either one.  Trust me.

If you are a fan of shows or movies like Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, and Merlin, you will feel right at home, but I will say that you don’t need to be a fantasy fan to enjoy this series.  The story weaving is so intricate and well done and this show is beyond addicting.  Even though the episodes are long, I finished it in two days and as soon as I got to the end, I wanted more!

I highly recommend this show and I hope you enjoy it!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 13 episode 17: “The Thing”

Happy Sunday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 13 episode 17 last night, I learned that even when you think you can’t be redeemed, fear and regret can lead you to try to do the right thing against all odds.  That being said, there is always a catch…or Ketch involved.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Thing,” Sam and Dean are checking off their list of ingredients and are stumped by the Seal of Solomon, which causes them to track down a lead in Rhode Island.  Meanwhile, Ketch gets schooled by Asmodeus and makes the decision to turn the tables on him.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 13 episode 17 are:

5

Dean gets creative with Post-It notes.

Sam has been investing a lot of time in his research and falls asleep on top of a book, which inspires Dean to have a little bit of fun with him.  He carefully places post-it notes on the back of Sam’s shirt that read:  “Dum Dum,” “Kick Me”and“Ass face.”  Later on, Sam notices them in the mirror and is not amused, but Dean tells him they have other things to worry about now, but takes a moment to really appreciate his fine work.

4

“I love books!”

As a refresher, Sam and Dean need four ingredients to open the door to the other world that Mary and Jack are trapped in.  They begin making their list and checking it twice and are currently short two ingredients:  The Seal of Solomon and the grace from an Archangel.  Sam and Dean have been searching for information on the Seal of Solomon to no avail, which leads them to go through the archives which Dean finds very tedious.  They eventually come across information from the Men of Letters who apparently discovered Solomon’s treasure.  In the treasure is a “jewel of the cosmos,” which Dean refers to as “a piece of kryptonite.”  They decide to head off to Rhode Island to track down the lead in another hideaway from the Men of Letters, as this is the only lead they have.

3

“Kale is a garnish.”

When Sam and Dean stop in at a local diner in Rhode Island, Dean allows the waitress to bring him whatever is good.  Sam makes the healthier choice, however; and orders a type of Kale dish which disgusts Dean.  Sam begins talking about the importance of lowering his cholesterol.  Dean is impressed but explains that he is also “watching his cholesterol…watching it go way up.”

2

“It’s like a Hallmark movie…but with tentacles.”

After Sam and Dean go down to the underground Men of Letters bunker in Rhode Island, they find an unexpected guest.  A woman named Sandy Porter is being held captive, but has been there for almost a hundred years.  Sam and Dean are stumped by this but welcome her to the future just the same and let her know that they will protect her.  They need to quickly make good on their promise, as followers of the Men of Letters begin surrounding the diner.  After Sam is captured, he learns that Sandy died many years ago and the monster that fed on her inhabits her body.  Sam quickly realizes that Dean is in a lot of trouble as apparently all the monster does is “feed and breed.”  Luckily for Dean, Sandy chooses him as the host for her lover trapped in the other world.  Sam and the other Men of Letters rescue Dean with perfect timing and send the monster back to its world, closing the rift for good.

1

“What’s the catch?”

While Mr. Ketch tries to involve himself in Asmodeus’s plan, he quickly realizes that he is merely a servant in his eyes and not worth much at all.  Asmodeus tells Ketch that he sees that he is filled with fear, regret, and pain and that he can’t be redeemed.  He makes him feel even less when he simply tells him, “You’re mine.”  Mr. Ketch refuses to let this be his fate and makes the decision to break out Gabriel and bring him to Sam and Dean as a peace offering.  Sam and Dean are shocked to see Gabriel but are not about to turn Mr. Ketch away, especially since he possesses the last ingredient.  In return, Mr. Ketch wants protection from Asmodeus and “dibs on the top bunk.”  While Sam is hesitant, Dean quickly agrees and tells Sam that he and Mr. Ketch are going to go through the door alone.  Sam is left to hold down the fort and watch after Gabriel, but clearly doesn’t like the idea of letting his brother handle this on his own.  We know that the Winchester brothers are stronger together, but will this plan work the way Dean intends?  While I’m not sure they will be able to find Jack and Mary so easily, it seems like this is their only option right now.  What new threats will they find in the other world?  What will Sam encounter with Gabriel?  And it seems like we haven’t seen too much of Lucifer or Rowena lately, so you know that they will be re-surfacing sooner or later.  Let’s hope it’s not when the Winchester brothers are apart.

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Supernatural  below.  Happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “Supernatural” season 13 episode 11: “Breakdown.”

Happy Friday TV fans! The weekend is almost here, but my day would not be complete without discussing our favorite brothers:  The Winchesters.  After watching the CW’s Supernatural season 13 episode 11 last night, online auctions have a whole new meaning for me, as Sam and Dean dealt with something well beyond the routine bidding on eBay.  You may want to think again about how badly you want to procure that collectible item.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch yet.  In last night’s episode, “Breakdown,” Sheriff Donna returns when her niece, Wendy has gone missing.  Even though it doesn’t initially seem like anything supernatural is going on, she is still relying on the help of Sam and Dean.  We are also re-introduced to Donna’s love interest, Doug, who is quickly thrown into a world of monsters and mayhem which may be too much for him to handle.  My top 5 moments from Supernatural season 13 episode 11 are:

5

Dean explains the importance of pancakes.

Sam is clearly still in a rut after everything that happened with “The Bad Place,” learning that their mother, Mary is still trapped with Jack in another world.  Sam tosses and turns in bed, refusing to wake up until after 10am, worrying Dean, who is typically the one you would imagine to sleep in on a rainy day.  Dean refuses to let his brother stew in his own misery, however; as he tries to distract him and cheer him up, even making a breakfast complete with pancakes.  When Sam tells him he isn’t hungry, Dean feels the need to go into a big brother lecture on the importance of pancakes, keeping the vibe light, but also reminding Sam that he is there for him and won’t give up.  While it seems like a small gesture, Dean knows his brother better than anyone else in the world, proving to be a good friend and an even better brother.

4

Dean has a heart-to-heart chat with Doug.

When Sam and Dean show up to help Donna find her niece, they seamlessly embrace their familiar identities as FBI agents looking to do the right thing and help their…cousin.  Dean senses that the FBI agent he is talking to my check up on him so he backs off and lets him take charge, explaining that he is there for moral support and to get to the bottom of what happened to his family member.  Doug proves not to be the sharpest tool in the shed when he believes that Donna and Dean are actually related, comically inquiring about the recent family reunion.  Doug innocently seeks out some advice from Dean about Donna and Dean even teaches him “that’s how we do things in the FBI,” bringing him along for the ride to track down the killer.

3

“It’s like eBay…kinda.”

Once the Winchesters stumble onto the Butterfly’s website, they are appalled by what they see.  There is an online auction going on while a victim is strapped to a chair, as the bids climb higher and higher, competing over body parts.  Sam realizes that they are chatting about the parts as if they were food…leading to the conclusion that it’s basically “take out for monsters.”  They discover there is something supernatural at play here after all, re-thinking their strategy on how they will rescue Donna’s niece and stop the evil in the nick of time.

2

“Bring it Twilight.”

Once the tables are turned on the Winchesters and they realize they are dealing with vampires, Sam is taken hostage and Doug is turned into a vampire to Donna’s horror.  Dean is not afraid of the vampire cashier boy in the slightest, whipping out his blade and giving fans a catchy pun we can all appreciate, “bring it Twilight.”  While there is hope for Doug to get a cure before he is permanently changed, our attention quickly shifts to Sam’s safety when we learn that the bids are hitting some new records.  Vampire and monster bidders everywhere relish the idea of snacking on the hunter, Sam Winchester and are looking to win the auction no matter what the cost is.  The FBI agent reveals that he was the Butterfly killer all along, spinning a horrifying story about how he actually thinks he is saving lives by keeping the vampires occupied so they are not roaming the streets.  Sam’s heart gets auctioned for an impressive $500K but the show is over and Dean comes in to save the day, shutting down bids everywhere.

1

Doug can’t handle a life with monsters.

While I was relieved to see that Doug was alright, something in my gut told me that we wouldn’t be seeing him again.  While he has a sweet and loving relationship with Donna, he could already feel the void as if she had been keeping something from him.  When he gets tossed head first into the horrifying world of monsters, it’s too much for Doug to handle.  He clearly cares for Donna, but he wants something normal and routine…something that Donna can’t give him because this is more than a job for her, it’s a calling.  While this sets the path for Donna to embrace her new destiny with the “Wayward Sisters,” I can’t help feeling incredibly sad for her.  Donna deserves love and happiness but understands his decision.  Sam and Dean are all too familiar with a life on the road away from attachments, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be there for emotional support, helping each other along the way.

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Supernatural  below.  Happy viewing!
