“The Urge To Purge” is a definite improvement on the second episode, though much of it is concerned with a largely unneeded tie-in to the movie The First Purge.
Mark Hamill guest-stars as a clown-themed super-criminal (not that one!) as The Monarch joins a supervillain group to steal Doctor Venture’s latest invention.
“Take What’s Yours” trades suspense for exposition, as most of the subplots established in The Purge pilot are left treading water or barely moving forward.
Love (and laughing gas) are in the air, as “The Bellicose Proxy” sees Shelia reuniting a Guild agent with his love and The Monarch mentoring a newbie villain.
The Purge comes to TV in a ten-part mini-series event that grabs your attention from the start, using suggestion effectively to replace the gore of the films.
Dean is moving into the dorms and Hank is moving into Dean’s room, as The Monarch adjusts to a less-costly form of villainy in “The High Cost Of Loathing.”
The Morpho Trilogy concludes with a bang, as several long-running mysteries are solved but even bigger questions are raised by the aftermath.
“The Rorqual Affair” catches us up on the latest events within The Guild of Calamitous Intent and their efforts to catch the vigilante Blue Morpho.
