Set in the not-so-distant future the world is upside down. Well, not literally upside down. Just… up in the air. Gravity has stopped, and you are now only as safe as far as you tether or to the nearest solid object to grab onto.

Harry Langford (Chris Vance) returns to the islands working as protection for a British royal (Kate Beahan) and her teenage daughter (Alana Boden). When the daughter sneaks out of her protection detail, Steve (Alex O’Loughlin) and Danny (Scott Caan) help Harry track the girl down before the wrong type of people discover she’s unprotected on the island. Really just an excuse to get Vance back on the show, “I Ka Wa Ma Mua, I Ka Wa Ma Hope” is one of the more enjoyable episodes of the season with a nice balance of tension and humor. I smiled more than once when the show worked in Danny’s parenting skills of a precocious teenage daughter.

The death of Nick and disappearance of the Dark One dagger brings a bit of the old Rumpelstiltskin back as Weaver (Robert Carlyle) will threaten, steal, and betray to get his hands on his property. His discovery of the dagger’s whereabouts tie into the episode’s flashbacks involving Alice (Rose Reynolds) and a destiny Rumpelstiltskin first attempted, than thought better of, forcing on her many years ago. While the flashbacks lack zaniness of the old Dark One, the episode seems to suggest the troubled young woman is still tied to the dagger and may still yet have a role to play in Rumpelstiltskin’s salvation (or damnation).

lego-dc-comics-super-heroes-the-flashThe latest of the LEGO DC Super-Hero straight-to-video movies, LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: The Flash features the first appearance of the Reverse-Flash (Dwight Schultz) who tricks the Flash (James Arnold Taylor) into a time loop which allows the villain to damage his relationships with the rest of the Justice League and eventually steal the hero’s powers. After destroying the Flash’s good name, and then using his speed to beat the Justice League to all crimes, the Reverse-Flash makes a name for himself as the world’s greatest hero. Meanwhile, with a bit of help from Doctor Fate (Kevin Michael Richardson) and Zatanna (Kate Micucci), the Flash will work to earn back his speed not realizing that he’s playing straight into the villain’s hands.

The story of the Flash learning to slow down long enough to take stock of his surroundings and come up with a plan is hammered home without much subtlety, but there’s still quite a bit of fun to be had.
