    Er.. I don’t want to dip the fly in the ointment but this week’s episode was called Endless Night. Sorry.

      Thanks for changing it, much appreciated!

        HOW HAVE YOU NOT DIED YET!?
        HAVE YOU SEEN THE EPISODE!?
        IT LOOKS AMAZING!

        • PK-S

          Yes, I’ve seen All-Out War and it’s very good indeed.

    I thought the Tom and Lexxie relationship was very mature for a Children’s TV series.

    Even with Tracey Beaker Returns/The Dumping Ground’s (which deals with mature matters) approach to romantic relationships was quite simple.

    The second half of Wizards VS Aliens has been outstanding. From The Thirteenth Floor onwards it’s been world class writing since. I’m hooked.
    Phil Ford is masterful at writing this show; it’s fantastic!
    The whole plot was as dark (pardon the pun) as an adult drama and the size and scale of the problem that presented itself was as big as a Russell T Davies finale!
    (Well…)
    I’m literally in awe. This episode was not as good as The 13th Floor because – let’s face it – I can’t see it getting much better than that (Russell T Davies finale, that’s all I’m saying) but boy(!) did it give it a good run for its money!
    I’m blown away, complete and utterly blown away!
    They managed to make a world-wide catastrophe seem real enough & believable on a children’s television show budget & not only that but the story was incredible too!
    I loved the face off with Lexi & Tom and I loved that the moon stones buried in the ground were so damn good! The voices and the directing was superb!
    (Has anyone noticed how SJA Series 2 finale was at Stone Henge too?)
    It’s genuinely fascinating and I can’t believe how good it is!
    Honest!
    OMG LEXI THOUGH! SHE DISOBEYED HER FATHER! SHE WAS SO GOOD! GOOD ON YOU LEXI! KILL YOUR FATHER! KILL YOUR BROTHER! LIVE WITH TOM ON THE SHIP! HAVE ALIEN BABIES!
    They were just fantastic…. and it’s heart breaking because you know Lexi wanted it to happen but she couldn’t because she knew it would never work so she’s broken… It’s awful!
    This is so mature for a show about Wizards VS Aliens!
    THAT NEXT TIME TRAILER THOUGH!
    RUSSELL T DAVIES YOU BEAUTY!
    I COULD KISS YOU!
    I COULD!

    Still disappointed there is no main female co-lead as with The SJA and Sarah Jane herself and Maria then Rani.

    WvsA still feels a bit of a boys-own club whilst I initially thought Chloe from the first two episodes of this season (100 Wizards) was going to change this but it was not to be.

    • Roger

      Really? Really? That is your only complaint?
      There’s Ursula?
      Lexi is a lead character.
      Just because the lead isn’t female doesn’t mean it’s an all males club.

      • mark27b

        Yes that’s my only complaint as WvA is excellent in all other aspects.

        In SJA the female lead and co-leads where great role models for girls however in WvA . Katie Lord (Manpreet Bambra) isn’t.

    While you acknowledge it, I think the comparison to Thirteenth Floor is a little unfair. If it hadn’t have been for that episode, this would have been one of the best this show had ever produced. Thirteenth Floor was near perfection, exploding trolls aside, so nothing was ever going to live up to it. I was not expecting much of anything that came after that so was pleasantly surprised at just how good this episode was.

    Gwendoline Christie’s ability to emote under seven hundred layers of prosthetics continues to astonish and impress and she nearly brought me to tears two storylines in a row. And in a show that is known more for its silliness, that says something.
