PREDICTIONS: WWE Payback

Yeah I don't need to watch this live.
Ah, the first PPV afgter Mania. Traditionally a weird, half-assed affair, this year's Payback is extra special because of the weirdness caused by matches being set before the Superstar Shakeup. I have bad feelings about this.

Arrow: "Dangerous Liasons (4/26)

There's moral ambiguity, and then there's just amibuity.
There are two huge problems with the big Helix blowoff episode this week. The first is that the whole Felicity/Helix thing is built on Felicity's grief over Billy and desire for revenge against Promootheus, and that's the one thing this season the show has completely failed to sell me on.

NXT (4/26)

Pretzel Party on NXT!

A lot of OK stuff on this week's NEXT, but it's really all about the UK title match.

205 Live (4/25)

Still one of the best things going
It's amazing how much the end of the Alicia Fox storyline is livening up 205 Live. Some solid matches and furthering of the stories this week.

Agents of SHIELD: "All The Madame's Men" (4/22)

Another solid episode of Agents of SHIELD in the can, but it pretty much played out in a completely logical fashion from what came before it, so I'll touch on a couple of minor points instead of the plot.

Smackdown Live (4/25)

"I don't  exactly know what a House of Horrost match is, but for some reason I feel like Sunday, I'm going to find out."

God, Randy Orton sucks.

The Flash: "The Once And Future Flash" (4/25)

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO
Honestly, by Season 3 Flash standards, this wasn't a completely awful episode. Oh, sure, it was full of the usual bullshit like Barry not listening to Iris, Barry standing around mouthbreathing while villains unleash their powers on him, and the eternal question of how, in the seven (or eight, according to the show) years between 2017 and 2024, nobody ever used the magic words "Iris wouldn't have wanted this" that turned Future Barry around. But beyond that, the show was watchable, I think.
