An Inside Man Gives Rebels a Return to Form

This episode is so good Nick and Zach finally fuse to form Nach. The fanboyish nerd bro with a strong heart, alternating moods that go from either intense joy and wonder to deep wallowing anxiety and worry, and a Nach for expression and human study. In essence:

Thank goodness we have “An Inside Man” as an episode. The last two episodes have probably been some of the worst in the series. “Iron Squadron” and “The Wykanthu Job” were not fun to sit through, and painful to review. Fortunately it seems the storm has passed, and given us an excellent episode in “An Inside Man”. Well paced, written, some brave story telling, and only a few issues here and there. This episode is a very nice return to form, a treat after the last few episodes.

Ezra and Kanan’s Super Secret Spy Mission

spy-mission

The main plot of this episode revolves around Kanan and Ezra going undercover to gain some secret Empire Plans. Things do not going according to plan, but impulsive improvisation is part of the Ghost Crew’s specialty, and they succeed while learning some interesting things.

Something excellent was the episode’s pacing. It felt like watching a mini-movie. The plot remained unpredictable and as such was much more exciting. Who (barring leakers and those who saw it early) expected Thrawn? Who expected that Ezra and Kanan would learn Kallus was Fulcrum? We couldn’t really guess how the episode would resolve. The result being something a great episode that felt a lot longer(in the good way) than it actually was.

Whacking Extras

Something that we noted in Star Wars: The Clone Wars was how frequently people died. Of course, since it is a show about a war, that can be expected. Star Wars: Rebels, however, has made me realize just how disposable the cast for TCW was. When the budget for a TV show was as large as TCW (around $1,000,000 per episode if we remember correctly) it is easy to maintain a large production staff and thus have plenty of characters to populate the screen. A critical difference between 2D and 3D animation is that extras, who may appear for scant seconds on screen, must be fully rendered in a 3D production. Since Disney has slashed Rebels’ budget when compared to TCW it is understandable that the only people the writers can afford to whack are the disposable stormtroopers and generic Imperial officers.

poor-fool

Poor fool. You never see his face. You never learn his name.

This episode saw the death of Morad Sumar, a poor farmer from Season 1. For those of you who have not read Ahsoka (which you totally should) the Empire has little use for small-time farmers, instead relying on Super-GMO plants that destroy the soil and make super-nutritious ration bars. It only makes sense to destroy his farm (and thus his livelihood) so that he can lend his time to production of Imperial hardware. When Morad tried to use this position within the Empire to aid the rebels, he paid the ultimate price. He is survived by his wife, Marida, and in the vein of keeping the cast small, perhaps Morad’s death with drive Marida to become an Imperial spy.

The Writer’s Blindness to Kanan’s Blindness

This is something that has been bothering me for the last few episodes but wefinally decided to write about it today. Kanan is blind. He took a lightsaber to the face in the Season 2 finale and it fried his cornea like a chicken tender. This lack of physical ability prompted him to deepen his understanding of the Force, and it was all good, but then the episodes started to stretch things. A few weeks ago we saw Kanan in a gunner’s turret. This week he infiltrated an Imperial factory. This is starting to test my patience. Yes, Kanan is a Jedi, and yes he can sense things in the Force in a way that we cannot understand, but even that power has limits. During his fight with Maul Kanan relied on his other senses as well as the Force to achieve victory.

We think what I’m really asking for is that the writers let Kanan be blind. Toph from Avatar: The Last Airbender was a fierce warrior (in a way that was somewhat similar to the Force), but she was also blind, something that the writers never shied away from. She cannot read, she cannot see faces, and she cannot feel things that are not connected to the ground. Even when she is rooted to a physical medium Toph sometimes needs a hand to guide her. These things never diminish Toph’s worth as a character or fighter, but there are limits.

Toph worked because she had limits. Kanan and the Force currently doesn’t. While the idea is good, there needs to be some limits, else how will Kanan ever truly face any obstacles. The writers of Rebels seem bent on making Kanan perfectly capable of everything he could do when he could see, and this puts me off a bit. Giving a character a disability is great for representation; erasing or ignoring it…

ableism

It’s like he is not blind when it is convenient. Instead of being a way for him to navigate the world differently, and having him have some limitations or obstacles because of his blindness, Kanan instead has been shown in recent episodes to have zero problems navigating missions and other things. This episode being particularly egregious.

Is Thrawn Too Good?

Yes, we know Thrawn is supposed to be a ferocious badass. Thank goodness he is a ferocious badass, the Clone Crew has a history for woobifying badass characters. Case in point, compare General Grievous in Star Wars: Clone Wars (the 2003 mini-series) and in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. One was a ferocious, fear-inspiring, Jedi-killing badass decked out all in white. The other was a hacking, wheezing coward who got his butt handed to him by a crew of Gungans. we for one was dead scared that this would happen to Thrawn, but instead we seem to be going a bit too far in the other direction.

Thrawn seems to be almost supernaturally aware of the doings of the Rebels. Sure, the number of malfunctioning Imperial tech is an obvious indication of sabotage, and the farmer who was impressed into Imperial service was a similarly obvious suspect as saboteur, but from there the degree of accuracy to which Thrawn is able to predict exactly what is happening with the insurgents is a little too much. The most obvious moment of this is when the rebels run into Kallus (more on him later) and Thrawn just knows that they have found an “unexpected ally.”

It is more logical for Thrawn to believe that the rebels went in knowing that they had an agent on the inside, especially considering that Thrawn and Pryce are obviously sharing information and she would have told him about Sabine’s near miraculous escape. To think or suspect that the rebels ally was “unexpected” makes Thrawn seem almost omniscient and a little unbelievable.

star wars cool evil intense red eyes

I’ve seen your internet history. I know everything.

Kallusdemption: Is it working?

One of the main focal points of the episode is Kallus revealing himself as Fulcrum. He’s in essence become a spy for the rebellion, after everything that went down in “The Honorable Ones” and “Zeb”. That episode, and The Antilles Extraction seeded this. It seeded it so well that the fandom easily saw this coming. So now that the fan theory was confirmed, how does the actual reveal stack up?

We both liked how nonchalant the reveal was. Since pretty much everyone saw it coming, it was nice that the reveal wasn’t too dramatic or drawn out. In addition and as I’ll talk about later, now that we know Kallus is Fulcrum, it allows for a lot more dramatic tension. It may well be one of the most interesting plots in upcoming season.

Now that we’re getting something of a rehabilitation/redemption arc, it’ll be interesting to see how they handled it. Kallus has done some terrible things. He was part of the genocide of the Lasat people, brutally interrogated Kanan, and generally been very vindictive and threatening. In essence, he’s done a lot of bad things.

Yet as TV Tropes notes, Kallus has shown examples of Even Evil Has Standards, and considering he’s now thrown himself into an high stakes mental chess match with Thrawn, it’s not like he isn’t trying to make up for it.

Redemption/Rehabilitation Arcs can be very hard to write. But they led to some of the most interesting stories we’ve seen in media. Zuko, Peridot, and Jaime Lannister have redemption arcs and are very rewarding, if they are done well. We’ll all have to wait and see how they handle Kallus and his past actions.

Overall

Despite some issues, “An Inside Man” is probably one of the best in the series. It’s pacing is excellent. It’s stakes are real, and it takes chances and goes place a lot of other show wouldn’t or couldn’t. How Kanan’s blindness is treated is an issue, but it’s not the episode fault and more a general fault with the series right now. Thrawn has yet be neutered like other villains before him, and hopefully stays where he is or perhaps is toned back just a bit. Kallus’s arc is interesting and we are excited to see where it goes, both in terms of how his arc forms and the mental chess matches he and Thrawn are now in. In essence, it get the thumbs of approval.

Overall Episode Rating: 8, Inspiring: Any shortcomings are nothing but small dots on an otherwise perfect painting. Despite some minor issues, it’s on par with some of the best. I could definitely watch it more than once (or twice).

Some favorite quotes:

Stromtrooper: What are you doing here?

Kanan in spy mode: Uhg…we’re on guard duty.

Stormtropper: And what exactly are you guarding?

(Cue shoot of Ezra and Kanan, sitting in front of and guarding a completely harmless wall.)

Ezra in spy mode: We go where we’re ordered sir.

Next week: Maul jumps back onto the scene.

It’s not exactly a quote per se, but I actually laughed out loud when Ezra flattened Kallus through that screen to make their escape look “convincing”.

I find the Kallus as Fulcrum deal pretty interesting, especially considering he helped murder the last attempted Imperial defector (Minister Tua? Was that her name?)

I’ll be pleasantly surprised if Thrawn doesn’t end up brutally executing him at some point before the end of the season.

I’m really hoping that the show will recognize Kallus’ past atrocities and have him be somewhat unapologetic about it. His current position would be explained as a result of him investigating the Geonosian genocide after Zeb’s prodding and becoming absolutely disgusted with the Empire, thus leading to him becoming more questioning of casualties to civilians in the present.

Maul is back next week, and according to teasers and previews, his sanity is really starting to decline. I can’t wait.

It’s SW after all, they have/had a whole species of eyeless Force-seeing creatures, The Miraluka. If they could read, write and even shoot, why Kanan shouldn’t? It would be a bit strange. It could have unfortunate implications, I agree, but it’s consistent with broader canon picture as what blind Forceuser can or cannot do.

(what bugs me much more is that warrior monk from Rogue One who is blind, is NOT Force-sensitive, but not only fights without any handicap, but SHOOTS.)

Away In A Manger: Black Lightning 2×09, “Gift of Magi”

Black Lightning, Anissa, and Jennifer with the phrase Get Lit

Well, my friends, we’re nearing the end of Black Lightning S2, and I think it’s time to declare a sophomore slump. Anyone here with me? Let’s get into this week’s episode and discuss.

Jen and Kahlil are still on the run, but Kahlil was cut with one of Cutter’s Special aka Poison knives, so he’s quickly succumbing. The pair find a barn, where there’s a lot of soft lantern light and Kahlil can curl up in the hay. At first they swap cute-funny stories about when they first met, but soon Kahlil can’t manage talking let alone breathing well, so Jen goes out to steal some antibiotics from a hospital. (They don’t yet know that it’s poison, they assume his wound is infected). Jen is getting really good not only at controlling her powers, but using them for specific tasks, and I’m here for it although I really wish it wasn’t in the context of this storyline.

Manger

She manages to get the antibiotics and injects Kahlil with it, but it doesn’t work. She grows increasingly desperate, and as Kahlil’s death seems imminent, she goes outside for some air and a good cry. That’s when she goes back to her brain-salon, where she sees Perenna (her brain-version of Perenna, not the real one) and a twin version of herself. Mind-Perenna tells Jen that she already has everything she needs inside of her; it’s very Inside Out. Together with her brain creations she figures out that Cutter is actually *right there* watching them through binoculars. She manages to capture her and tie her up, tasering her with her hands as a form of torture in order to get her to tell her what she did to Kahlil. It’s not long before she figures out it was a poison knife, and cuts Cutter with it so that she’ll be forced to show Jen where on her person the antidote is. Turns out, it’s in that very obvious vial on her necklace!

Twins

Jen goes to a dark place when she’s torturing Cutter, which is kind of hard to watch. Again, I’d be more interested if this whole thing didn’t revolve around Kahlil. Anyway, Jen gives both Kahlil and Cutter the antidote and they’re on their way again. But only after they declare their undying love for each other.

I’m happy to report that no one left Kahlil’s aunt for dead in her house, as Black Lightning, Thunder, and Gambi have set up camp there to help her recover from what turned out to be one of Kahlil’s pain pills and try to figure out how to find Jen. They know Kahlil is hurt so they check hospitals, and end up being in the same hospital as Jen at the same time!

So close, yet so far

Jefferson and Anissa figure out Jen was there because she left a trail aka scorch mark in her path, but the fact that she keep eluding them is driving Jefferson to be irrational and reckless. Gambi and Anissa manage to keep him under control, but Lynn is losing it too. When she’s not crying in the wreckage of Jen’s room that she destroyed, she’s trying to get Kahlil’s mom, and then his dad, to give her clues as to where they might be.

Of course neither of them can help, but along the way she grabs a gun from the Inner Sanctum aka Gambi’s basement so that’s concerning, considering her emotional state.

My heart breaks for this heartbreak

In a parallel storyline, Tobias has set his sights on a kid named Todd, an academic prodigy who has just been rejected for a research grant in favor of the white kid whose rich dad just funded a new wing of the university. It’s unclear what Tobias wants Todd to do, and Todd seems dubious at best until Tobias deposits $100,000 into his bank account. Money is the root of all evil, amirite? I mean, capitalism is. But that’s a discussion for another place.

An invitation I hope to never get

Lastly, this episode ends with a scene in which a mysterious someone murders everyone in a bar in Texas before getting a phone call from his boss telling him that his next job is in Freeland. I feel like we’re about to meet a bigger bad than Tobias, but time will tell! Just someone end this Kahlil-Jen nonsense and give us our family back kthanks.

What do you think is in store for the final episodes? Are you happy with this season so far? Black Lightning is going on hiatus until the end of January, so I’ll be back then to see where we’re at. Enjoy what’s left of the year, friends!

Winter Hiatus Blues

Seher

Published

on

By

Even in December with the broadcast networks hiatus for scripted series starting, and pilot season underway, there’s so much to discuss!

The continuing behind the scenes drama of Les Moonves’ ouster from CBS, ABC’s entertainment president Channing Dungey stepping down, NBC’s Greenblatt moving on, and FOX setting up for its new leadership once the merger goes through…every big 4 network has a lot to deal with between now and the TCAs in early February. The exec panels will sure be a time… Especially if ratings come up at all.

Ratings Race

As of this Tuesday, and as always, I’m talking about scripted ratings: FOX is number 1 with a 1.13 average followed by NBC, ABC, and CBS. CW of course is last with .35. Last month, four of the five networks had six shows at or above their overall average.

Now, ABC has eight shows, the CW has five, and the rest have six.

Across the five networks, only a third of new shows are performing above the average on their network. The Connors (considered a new show), FBI, The NeighborhoodLast Man StandingNew Amsterdam, and Manifest. The highest rated new show on The CW, Legacies hovers right below the network’s average.

Interestingly, across the board, long running shows are still high rating performers (or what’s high now) for the networks. The exception to this is SVU at a tenth below the average.

Their “success” indicates that we probably won’t lose any of the longest running shows anytime soon. Still, the network with the largest average season length (including shows yet to premiere) is FOX at 5.3 followed by CBS at 4.5. Removing the shows already cancelled and predicted as canceled doesn’t make an impact because of The Simpsons‘ whopping thirty seasons! (Unrelated but with the announcement for Crisis on Infinite Earths, DCTV isn’t going anywhere either.)

Of course some of this will shift when the rest of the new slate premieres begin in January. I do not envy the folks in charge of scheduling spring shows, especially as more time slots are lost to winter reality or competition shows.

Scheduling Shenanigans

You can put whatever new show after strong shows and still have a dud in the ratings race.

On The CW, ableist In The Dark has had zero promotion beyond the scheduling announcement that it starts after Supernatural. Their other new show Roswell: New Mexico or Roswell: TVD received the coveted post Flash slot plus actual promo. Except for The 100, their other spring shows already received cancellations, so ratings definitely don’t matter.

FOX  only has two newbies to premiere, with The Passage starting after The Resident and Proven Innocent taking the 9PM slot after Cool Kids. I don’t know that people watching an hour of comedy will stick around for a procedural, but anything can happen these days.

ABC on Wednesday revealed that in a vote of confidence (or in hopes to increase viewers or to get Whiskey Cavalier onto the schedule earlier) is moving the last bit of A Million Little Things behind Grey’s leaving current slot holder Station 19 off the schedule until March. Considering AMLT  hit a .7 last week… The Fix is the only other newbie to get a spring slot, starting in March in The Good Doctor‘s place. Grand Hotel is now a summer show. ABC what are you doing?!

NBC and CBS have yet to fully unveil their new schedules so more on that in January! However, pilot development is in full swing and reboots (and spin-offs) continue to rule the pack.

Pilot Predictions

Predicting what pilots will make it to series this early is silly, but I do think that a chunk of the reboots in development will definitely make it to air. If they’ll get renewed is another question. Even though this year, only Charmed received a back 9 order (Last Man Standing was ordered with 22 episodes). Last year, all the shows that received fewer than 9 episodes in the fall except for Good Doctor were cancelled. So now in May, that trend continues, or the new trend is that any back order indicates a renewal.

Which is why even though I think it’s silly to bank on so many reboots in development, I know that networks are still going to do it. I won’t list all of the shows in development because there are a lot and many will die by January. The CW has three alone! And NBC already has a series order for Law and Order: Hate Crimes or as my friend calls it, “SVU but grittier” making it the seventh L&O series.

By late January, early February, the big entertainment sites will have lists of all the pilots in contention and then we can really get into the details. Until then, what shows are y’all waiting to see for the first time (or again)?

‘Legends of To-Meow-Meow’ Cranks the Insanity up to Eleven

Published

on

By

It’s that time year of again. The Arrowverse crossover, but the Legends misplaced their invites. While Kara, Barry, and Oliver were getting acquainted with Batwoman and dealing with body switching, the Legends were dealing with their own alternate reality issues. Or should I say the Custodians were dealing with their own issues. Or, should that be the Sirens? Or the Puppets?

Yep, this was one of those kinds of episodes. ‘Legends of To-Meow-Meow’ didn’t just surpass the insanity of every other episode this season. It multiplied it, as Charlie and Constantine broke the timeline more with each attempt to fix it.

At first, Charlie hits the town on her own, going to Las Vegas to stretch her newly returned powers. Going out as Marilyn Monroe, she runs into a prison buddy, a leprechaun. She barely has the chance to warn him about faulting his powers when Mick, Nate, and Ray strut in dressed like they just walked out of an 80’s action show. Which they did, apparently, as they introduce themselves as the Custodians of the Chronology and we get ‘A-Team’ style opening credits. They kill the leprechaun without hesitation, which is a big clue for Charlie that not everything is right.

Legends already planning their own spin offs.

She returns to the Waverider with cat-Zari to figure out why the team is suddenly so murder-happy. She transforms into Sara, planning on just ordering them to stop. But it doesn’t work because in this timeline, without help from Constantine, Sara was killed by the unicorn at Woodstock. The team attacks her, recognizing her as a shapeshifter. Charlie makes a quick retreat from the ship, taking cat-Zari along to find John.

He’s being kept imprisoned at the Time Bureau. Because he was the epicentre of the timeline shift, he has memories from both timelines and his brain isn’t keeping up very well. When they find him, John turns Zari back into a human. Only to turn her right back when she’s against his and Charlie’s idea to save Sara instead of fixing their alteration. Charlie breaks John out, with some help from Mona and a very emo Ava. Some of the Lege- Custodians die in their fight out, but everything will be fine once they save Sara. At least that’s what Charlie and John tell themselves.

They travel to Woodstock, blasting the unicorn into rainbow gloop before it can gore anyone. But this time, when they return to their time Nate, Ray, and Mick are the ones with the memorial plaques. Plus, without the guys around, Sara, Ava, and an android?Gideon have formed a Charlie’s Angels style team that assassinates fugitives. Charlie attempts to infiltrate the team as Amaya, but her cover is blown almost instantly. She does learn the boys were killed by the Fairy Godmother. The fairy is also the reason Zari’s a cat.

I’d watch this show.

John and Charlie go to Salem for their next patch job. Charlie transforms into the Fairy Godmother to trick Prudence into releasing the fairy before she can kill the boys. It seems to go off without a hitch until she returns to the jumpship. Good news, Zari is no longer a cat. Bad news, she’s now a puppet.

So is the entire team, as John learns when he boards the Waverider. They aren’t just puppets. They’re puppets that sing their own intro and have a historical figure of the day. Since the Fairy Godmother didn’t kill Mick, he became her new charge. She turned the team into puppets before Mick took her along on a crime spree.

Charlie and John keep trying to Band-Aid the timeline, but each fix ends with someone else dead in the new timeline. Yet, even when they get to a point where no one has died, John’s mind has so many timelines clashing in his mind he collapses from the strain.

He finally agrees with Zari that they need to fix the timeline properly and stop Dez from leaving. When Charlie refuses to help they leave her behind, but she’s not giving up without a fight. She transforms into Ava, heading to the Waverider to clue the team in on the magical ongoings in New Orleans. But there’s something still wrong with this timeline. All the Legends are alive. No one is made of cloth. But they still have a ‘shoot first ask questions never’ policy when it comes the fugitives. Gideon picks up on the three Constantines at that point in time. The team assumes the extras are shapeshifters, sending Mick and Ray to blast them.

Charlie finally realizes it wasn’t just John’s absence from the team that caused the changes. It was her absence. Without her, the Legends don’t learn fugitives aren’t all unicorns with a taste for hearts or Fairy Godmothers that sing about murder.

…And with true love’s kiss, the curse was broken.

In New Orleans, this-episode’s-John stops Desmond after last-episode’s-Constantine broke up with him. He tells him he’s sorry for all the pain he’s going to cause him and wipes his memory just before still-in-a-relationship John can return. As Mick and Ray fire on this-episode-John, past-John and Desmond share a kiss which becomes the point from which the timeline fixes itself. Reality is right once again, where the only puppet person is the possessed Professor Stein and the Legends aren’t mythical creature murders. Ava and Mick even heal their rift from the last episode, finding some common ground.

John comes clean to Sara about their misadventure. He even tells her about Neron. Sara promises to help him take down his demon. So all’s well that ends well. Except, there’s no word on what happens to Mona after she met the business of the Kaupe’s claws. Nor is Hank happy the Kaupe escaped, which he learns about in the middle of a golf game with someone… something wearing Desmond’s face.

Analysis

Was this the strongest’s episode of Legends? Probably not. It sacrificed some substance for the sake of 80’s spoofs and sing-alongs. But that’s not to say this episode wasn’t good. Far from it. The alternate timelines were laugh out loud funny and the Puppets of Tomorrow song is going to be stuck in my head. They were so good I’m willing to overlook characters like Ray, Nate, Sara, and Ava feeling so drastically different in their respective spoof realities. I’ll chalk up to the discrepancies in their characterizations to time being so broken.

It could have easily become frustrating watching John and Charlie patch broke timeline after broken timeline while they ignored the obvious answer. But it never got to that point because every step of the way you knew John was doing this to keep Desmond alive. John Constantine, always the tortured soul, willing to let his mind be torn apart by multiple timelines before he gives up on his love again. It’s a tragedy the timeline being fixed has to come at the cost of Dez’s soul. But maybe it isn’t lost forever.

The scene between John and Desmond pulled at the heartstrings. As did the moment when Charlie finally realized she was the missing the link for the Legends. It’s always a good moment when a Legend finds their place on this mismatched, rag-tag team. It’s hard not to compare this episode to ‘Here I Go Again’, when Zari found her place on the team. Which is a glowing compliment when that episode is one of the best of Legends entire run.

The brief callbacks to the earlier episodes was a nice way to tie off the first half of the season as well. The Unicorn was only eight episodes ago. Yet, monsters, magic, and pure insanity feel like they’re always been a part of Legends of Tomorrow. Well, pure insanity has been a fundamental part of Legends since season two.

It just shows how this series isn’t afraid to shake up its own formula. Thus far it’s worked every time, with each season being better than the last. It’s still early to call season’s four place for certain. Season’s three back half had some heavy ringers, but so far this season is on the right tracks to be the most memorable one yet. They’re sure to come back strong when they return in April.

Only Legends Could

  • “You missed calls from Barry Allen, Oliver Queen, and Kara Zor-El,”
    “Sounds like the annual crossover,”
    “Yeah, that’s going to be a hard pass,”
    This whole exchange is amazing. Easily wins favorite lines of the episode.
  • You can tick off Sara Lance’s annual dalliance with death. Sara dying, almost dying, or faking dying should be a running gag at this point, but for some reason, I can never find it funny.
  • Everyone just understands cat-Zari. No explanation needed. Much like when Nate understood pig-Ray.
  • The CW tradition of bad wigs continues with emo Ava. (Kate Kane, by some miracle, avoided the curse.)
  • In the Siren’s reality, Sara’s wielding Mick’s gun and Gideon has Rip’s.
  • I want more of DC’s Puppets of Tomorrow.
  • There’s a timeline where Nate and Hank die from a Garden Gnome.
  • Why yes, Legends did give us the true love’s kiss fixes everything. And yes, it was a kiss for a mlm couple. Legends never ceases to amaze.
  • I got a flirty vibe from Charlie and Zari at the end. Time will tell where that goes.
