The Faraway Paladin eps 10-11

Rating: 3.5 These two episodes are getting reviewed together entirely because of an oversight on my part: I somehow forgot that I had not finished and posted episode 10’s review and did not realize my error until Thursday this past week. With only a couple of days left until the next episode aired, I justContinue reading “The Faraway Paladin eps 10-11”

The Faraway Paladin episode 9

Rating: 3.5 (of 5) Apparently, I have been doing it wrong all these years in fantasy RPGs. The correct way to bring down a wyvern is not to use arrows or a sword or attack spells; it’s to wrestle it to the ground and break its neck bare-handed. Granted, that’s not a feat that aContinue reading “The Faraway Paladin episode 9”

The Faraway Paladin episode 8

Rating: 3.5 As Will has begun his journey, his knowledge of the world has steadily expanded. With the meeting of additional traveling companions, it jumps forward in leaps and bounds.

(However, this was not a sudden change in either cases, as the “Special Edition” nature of this week’s episode wasContinue reading “Fall ’21 Weekend 9: Recaps and an Overlooked Gem”

The Faraway Paladin episode 7

Rating: 4 (of 5) Given the way last episode ended, the expectation was that this episode would be more action-intensive. Indeed, we do get that – sort of. While this episode does have a few decent scenes of Will (later with Menel’s support) wiping out lower-level demons, the length and staging of those fights remindsContinue reading “The Faraway Paladin episode 7”

Irina: The Vampire Cosmonaut eps 1-7

For those who don’t already know, I am a high school teacher by trade. Though I have spent 90% of my teaching career in Math (my minor), my major is actually Social Studies, with a focus in history, and I’m still quite the history buff. Hence, I usually eat up series with deep historical roots,Continue reading “Irina: The Vampire Cosmonaut eps 1-7”
