“And where did that power get you?”
Masters of the Universe: Revelation is a continuation of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983). The new series premiered on July 23rd 2021 and was written by Kevin Smith. Part 2 released on November 23rd 2021 on Netflix. The show stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, Lena Headey, Chris Wood, and Mark Hamill. There are five episodes in part 2 that run for approximately 25-28 minutes each.
Eternia is in grave danger after a new power threatens to destroy everything and everyone, but does anyone have the ultimate power to stop it?
Here is the trailer:
Masters of the Universe: Revelation part 2 doesn’t hold anything back as it continues a familiar plot while creating something new and relevant in the process. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
Necessary character arcs are explored.
I thought that part 2 did an excellent job with this. Each character went through an important journey of self-discovery and we even got to learn more about their past, which helped me connect to them even more. It wasn’t just about them defeating the great evil. It was about them embracing who they are, realizing that they still have time to make an impact on their own terms.
The humor continued.
There was a lot going on in these episodes, but I appreciated that the dry humor was still present because it really elevated the series and kept it truly fun and entertaining. Mark Hamill was fantastic as always and I was so beyond impressed with Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn. It’s like she was made for this role!
Reveals worth the wait!
There were some really great reveals and twists in part 2. I was so excited for some of them and they really emerged with perfect timing to keep us fully invested. Even though this is technically a series, it felt like a movie and I loved every second of it!
A lot jam-packed into part 2…
This isn’t necessarily a con, but maybe we could have benefited from six episodes to give enough time to everything. I didn’t really mind it because the pacing was done really well and it felt like a movie, but there was a lot going on and a lot to paying attention to.
So am I in or out?
Part 2 blew part 1 out of the water and then some! I could not stop watching this show and I had to watch all five episodes in one sitting. It was that good!
I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Masters of the Universe: Revelation (Part 2) in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

“Guilty of being the god of mischief? Yes…”
Loki premiered on Disney+ on June 9th 2021. The series will feature six weekly episodes that air on Wednesdays. Each episode runs for approximately 40-50 minutes. The show stars Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
The series takes place after the events of Avengers: End Game, as the god of mischief embarks on a confusing adventure of his very own, as he tries to figure out his place in the world.
Here is the trailer:
Loki has the potential to reel its viewers back into the MCU while charming us with one of our favorite antiheroes, but does its confusing plot get in the way of pure greatness? Let’s find out…
Tom Hiddleston is charming as ever.
Loki has always been one of my favorite characters and whether you love him or hate him, there’s an undeniable presence and charm to Tom Hiddleston’s portrayal. He is witty, devious, and beyond entertaining, and having a show completely dedicated to him seems like a brilliant idea to me.
I’m excited to see him really flourish in his own show and I have to say that Owen Wilson is doing a fantastic job of keeping up. I was worried that he might be a little bit too cheesy or over-the-top, but his dry humor is balancing nicely with Loki’s and they are both really fun to watch on screen.
The antihero can be redeemed.
If you haven’t watched all of the Avengers movies yet, you probably shouldn’t be watching Loki, but his moment of redemption was needed, but it also left me wanting more from our beloved character and we basically get a second chance to see Loki go on a real path toward self-discovery and purpose. There is a lot to this character and he isn’t just a trickster. He has a lot of layers and I am excited that we will finally be able to uncover his full potential in this series.
Muddled and confusing.
I’m not going to lie, I was really confused by the first episode. There is A LOT going on and the TVA is not making things easy for the viewers at home. The mystery is intriguing enough to keep me coming back for more, but I’m hoping we can get some concrete answers soon since we only have six episodes to explore.
I am giving the show a chance despite the confusing premise and pacing issues especially since I was equally confused with the beginning of WandaVision and that quickly became one of my favorite shows of the year.
So am I in or out?
Tom Hiddleston is charming and entertaining enough to keep you coming back for more, but this show has some real potential. There is a lot going on and I hope that the pacing picks up with the coming episodes, but it has captured my attention and I am really interested to see Loki’s character develop even more.
I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Loki in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

THIS COMPETITION IS KILLER…

My new young adult horror thriller comes out October 7th 2021! I hope you enjoy!
Marie Avgeropoulos as Octavia Blake on The CW’s The 100. I know that Clarke gets a lot of the attention on this show and I am a huge Eliza Taylor fan as well, but there has to be something said for the “girl under the floor” who has grown into one of the most interesting female protagonists on any current show.
Octavia started out unsure of herself, but she has always been a survivor and she has been trying to make up for her ruthless actions as Blodreina in season 6, but quickly realizes that it’s not an easy path toward redemption.Please note some spoilers are ahead.
I was a little concerned going into season 6 about what would happen with Octavia’s character. In season 5, she truly broke out of her shell and was absolutely captivating as Blodreina. Even though her actions were beyond questionable, she had such a drastic character transformation and I was impressed again and again by Marie’s portrayal of her.
In season 6, Octavia has taken somewhat of a backseat, but things get interesting when she teams up with Diyoza after Bellamy leaves her behind. Octavia discovers a new potential destiny within The Anomaly and it seems like she has been chosen. Is she a savior or a threat? I’m not so sure, but this new plot has kept Octavia relevant, continuing her story.
It was heartbreaking to see Bellamy leave Octavia behind, but perhaps that is what she needed. Octavia has had strong attachments to Lincoln, Indra, and Bellamy, but when she is left on her own, she is forced to deal with her guilt head on, coming face to face with everything she has done as Blodreina. When Octavia goes into The Anomaly, she ends up on a journey of self-discovery, but Bellamy initially seems skeptical of her true intentions.
In the season 6 finale, Octavia is the first one to speak up about helping Gabriel, performing selfless actions to help save innocent lives, which is absolutely a step in the right direction for her. Octavia knows that she has a long way to go for forgiveness, but it looks like she has looked within herself to find a way to keep going, which makes her a strong female anti-hero to truly root for.
What’s next for Octavia? We’ll have to wait and see, but we are left with an uncertain fate for her for season 7 after that cliffhanger ending. Season 7 will be the last season for the series, but I’m hoping this is not the end for Octavia. Now that she is finally on her path toward redemption, I want to continue watching her grow.
Octavia is strong and fearless, but she is also vulnerable, which makes her such a compelling and layered character. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Happy Monday TV fans! After watching AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 13, I realized that even the smallest gestures can make a tremendous impact. The work that Morgan and the rest of the gang are doing is so important and they are touching lives every day. It just goes to show you that a small act of kindness can go a long way. We can apply that to our everyday lives as well, but it’s important to remember that heroes can emerge through many different acts. You don’t have to literally save the world to become one. You just have to open your heart to others and treat them the way you want to be treated and then some. It may seem insignificant, but these actions can truly make a difference. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet. In last night’s episode, “Blackjack,” we follow Victor and John after the storm and quickly realize that a dangerous threat has emerged in the water. Meanwhile, Luciana crosses paths with a stranger in need of help and Morgan speaks to the mysterious lady villain again. My top 5 moments from Fear the Walking Deadseason 4 episode 13 are:
“Whoever gets the kill wins the bill.”
I have to say that I absolutely love the addition of Wendell, Sarah, and Jim to the series. They are bringing some much needed comedy to the heavy and emotional episodes, which really helps balance and elevate the show. During the episode, Jim is frightened when he detects a walker headed their way and keeps asking Wendell to give him a gun. Wendell refuses to give him the gun, but hilariously asks him, “You want a rock?” As the walker comes up behind him, Wendell’s weapons protrude from the back of his wheelchair, as he pins the walker in place. Wendell is excited to win the point, but Sarah gets the kill and reminds us that “whoever gets the kill wins the bill.” While this moment may seem insignificant compared to the ones we are about to get to, it’s important to be able to laugh a little bit during the show. These characters live in such harsh conditions and need to hang on to every bit of fun they can find, even if it’s just for a moment.
“I know who you really are.”
During the episode, the mysterious lady villain is back and radios over to Morgan when the group tries to reach out to Quinn, who only responds with undead moans and groans to June’s horror. Morgan recognizes her voice, but is confused about how she knows who he is. The woman tells him that Quinn is not weak anymore and that she let him become what he was meant to be, which reminds us just how twisted she is. The woman also tells Morgan that she knows a lot about him and warns him not to leave the boxes anymore. She explains, “If you stop trying to help people then you’ll be strong again.” While we don’t know how much this woman really knows about Morgan or what her ultimate goal is, I’m intrigued to find out. Either way, Morgan quickly understands that this woman is extremely dangerous and a threat to his people.
“You just got to fight for that next day.”
During the episode, we finally catch up with Victor and John and discover that they are stranded on some kind of island after the storm. To make matters worse, there is a gator lurking in the waters, snacking on walkers left and right, which makes it even harder for Victor and John to escape. John is a believer and tries to help Victor become one too and shows him the candy he found, which is June’s favorite. He explains that “little things like this make you want to keep fighting. If we don’t fight for everyday, we’re no different than the past.” While John is a true believer, Victor is a realist and these two clash quite a bit, but perhaps they can help each other more than they realize. Victor finally opens up and reveals that “I drink to forget that I don’t have anyone to drink with anymore. I only have things to look back on.” This moment is particularly heartbreaking because we know that Victor is referring to Madison, his dear friend and drinking partner. John offers to have a drink with him, but only once they cross the water, which is easier said than done. When they get about half way, they realize that they are not going to make it. The gator continues to wreak havoc on the dead and John tries to believe that they can get across, but Victor tells him that they can’t, as they both swim to shore defeated. Their food rationings are running out and John even has to eat the candy that he was saving for June, but all hope is not gone yet. Hopefully Morgan and the others can help them before it’s too late.
“It helped more than you will ever know.”
We also catch up with Luciana during this episode, who is out looking for Charlie. She quickly crosses paths with an older man named Clayton who is severely injured and pinned in a car. Luciana tries to stay positive, but soon realizes that she will not be able to save his life. Luciana asks him if there is anything she can do for him and Clayton responds, “I’d love to have one last beer.” Luciana tells him that he is going to get one and sets out on a quest to find this one last comfort for her new friend. The two continue to radio back and forth while she is out looking and Clayton refers to her as “little lady,” which is absolutely adorable. Luciana explains that she has things to make up for and Clayton gives her some good advice, explaining that even though she can’t help him, it doesn’t mean that she won’t be able to help someone else. Luciana continues to search for a beer and even finds some root beer along the way, but her quest seems hopeless until she finds one of the boxes that Morgan left. The beer is inside and she sees the note about radioing channel 4 if she needs help. Luciana is able to give the beer to Clayton and opens up about not being able to do anything for Nick when he died. Clayton reveals that he used to drive trucks and gives Luciana some notebooks with helpful information she may need about where supplies are. When she ultimately radios out to channel 4, she thanks them for what they left, explaining how much it actually helped. Luciana is shocked to hear Morgan on the other end and is able to reunite with her friends. I thoroughly enjoyed the interaction between Luciana and Clayton during this episode. While it seemed like Luciana was going on a journey of self-discovery, she had a friend to keep her company along the way and at the same time, she was able to truly be there for Clayton in his last moments. The Lost fan in me can’t help but saying, “Live together, die alone” here as this quote seems to truly summarize what we just witnessed in this episode.
“It doesn’t make us weak. It makes all of us stronger.”
At the end of the episode, we also see Charlie and Alicia and they get in touch with Morgan after finding one of the boxes as well. During the conversation; however, the mysterious woman interrupts and tells Morgan that she tried to tell him not to do this. Morgan tells her that helping others makes us all stronger and wants to help her as well. The woman is not too receptive to Morgan’s offer; however, as she pulls up behind the truck in Al’s van and opens fire on them. While we don’t yet know the fate of our favorite characters, it looks like we will finally find out some more information about this new villain next week. Stay tuned!
