Supergirl: The Complete Second Season is quite entertaining in spite of its faults with the script writing and some performances, yet Melissa Benoist is a delight in the lead, almost Christopher Reeve-esque in her cheerfulness, and the season-long arcs were compelling.

The Lincoln Lawyer isn’t breaking any new ground in the legal thriller genre. The plot itself is less mystery and more character so those expecting some twist might be disappointed. That being said, as somebody who has never been enamored with Matthew McConaughey, here he’s near pitch perfect for the part.

It’s something to go into a movie with low expectations and Snatched actually was a tad better, that’s not saying much, however.

The Exception is a well acted and finely told story featuring strong performances from Lily James, Jai Courtney – both sharing wonderful chemistry – and the always fantastical, Christopher Plummer. At the very least this is well worth a rental.

Probably the only thing the Blackbeard mini-series is remembered for is being one of Jessica Chastain’s first major roles, otherwise most everything in this seemed cheap from including the production and at nearly three hours, a slog to sit through.
