A 100% This Is Us: Season 1 - Memphis (TV Episode) We knew this was coming. We were warned way back in the pilot. Yet, all that preparation hardly dulled the pain. ‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 80% This Is Us: Season 1 - Moonshadow (TV Episode) This Is Us may have left many wanting. But what it did do - and do well - was reaffirm why we care about Jack (and Rebecca) in the first place. Because just as their marriage seemed to be at its weakest, the beating heart of the show was at its strongest.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B+ 86% This Is Us: Season 1 - I Call Marriage (TV Episode) First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes... complications. For Jack and Rebecca. For Kevin and Sophie. Even for Randall and Beth. And bubble baths and lava fries can't always fix everything.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B+ 100% This Is Us: Season 1 - Pilgrim Rick (TV Episode) I've really been enjoying the reconciliation and growing relationship between brothers Kevin and Randall‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 88% This Is Us: Season 1 - The Trip (TV Episode) This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman loves a good Ghost Dad. ‐ Entertainment Weekly

B+ 75% This Is Us: Season 1 - Last Christmas (TV Episode) But in typical This Is Us fashion, even I was left slack-jawed by the specific mortality in question.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B+ 88% This Is Us: Season 1 - The Game Plan (TV Episode) So, needless to say, Rebecca finds herself in a unique position during tonight's "The Game Plan," one I'm sure many women can sympathize (and empathize) with.‐ Entertainment Weekly

90% This Is Us: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode) Dan Fogelman is here to make you cry. ‐ Entertainment Weekly

100% This Is Us: Season 1 - The Big Three (TV Episode) All of which is to say I was a little nervous to sit down and watch the second episode of This Is Us. But, thankfully, "The Big Three" not only lived up to "Pilot," but introduced an intriguing new wrinkle to the story.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 100% This Is Us: Season 1 - Kyle (TV Episode) On the TV twist-o-meter, this week's This Is Us revelation probably ranks around a 4. That compared to the series' first two episode shockers which came in at solid 8s. And let me tell you: I'm so glad for a 4 episode.‐ Entertainment Weekly

A 100% This Is Us: Season 1 - The Pool (TV Episode) It surely can't be an accident that an innocent-seeming trip to the pool is used as a framing device for this episode examining the ramifications of a black boy being raised by white parents. ‐ Entertainment Weekly

A- 67% Outlander: Season 3 - Eye of the Storm (TV Episode) And so concludes this third season of Outlander, which began so strongly but weathered a few unfriendly waves in its later episodes.‐ Entertainment Weekly

A- 83% Outlander: Season 3 - The Bakra (TV Episode) After a spate of slow-moving episodes that felt like so much narrative water-treading, tonight's hour felt positively jam-packed with plot.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Dec 3, 2017
B+ 85% Outlander: Season 3 - Uncharted (TV Episode) Caitriona Balfe is no Tom Hanks and Coco is certainly no Wilson, but Outlander served up a respectable castaway story with this week's "Uncharted."‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 26, 2017
B 79% Outlander: Season 3 - Heaven and Earth (TV Episode) Moving "Heaven and Earth" for the one you love is certainly a romantic gesture, but not always the wisest one -- a lesson learned multiple times over in this week's episode of Outlander.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 19, 2017
B+ 85% Outlander: Season 3 - The Doldrums (TV Episode) We're more than halfway through the third season of Outlander and, in some ways, it feels like we're only just getting to the main event - the long-teased sea voyage to Jamaica.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 12, 2017
B- 64% Law & Order: True Crime: The Menendez Murders (TV, 2017) Perhaps once Abramson takes a seat at counsel table and The Menendez Murders morphs into a genuine Edie Falco vehicle, it will find some redemption. But for now, it's not winning in the court of appeals.‐ Entertainment Weekly

A- 77% Outlander: Season 3 - First Wife (TV Episode) Considering Voyager comes in at a doorstop-worthy 1,059 pages, a considerable number of plot points often have to be crammed into a single episode. Such was the case with tonight's "First Wife," which boasts a reunion, a shooting, and a kidnapping.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Nov 5, 2017
B- 85% Outlander: Season 3 - Creme De Menthe (TV Episode) It was a thriller of a cliffhanger, setting a tone that unfortunately couldn't be sustained throughout the plodding "Créme de Menthe."‐ Entertainment Weekly

B+ 93% Outlander: Season 3 - A. Malcolm (TV Episode) For those of you hoping to see breeches drop within the first 30 seconds of "A. Malcolm," you were in for a torrential cold shower of delayed gratification.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2017
A- 92% Outlander: Season 3 - Freedom & Whisky (TV Episode) After weeks of getting narrative short shrift, Claire and her story line finally get satisfactorily (if not lavishly) serviced in "Freedom & Whisky," as the 20th-century surgeon wrestles with the decision to return to 18th-century Scotland.‐ Entertainment Weekly

A- 100% Outlander: Season 3 - Of Lost Things (TV Episode) Heughan's performance has been particularly strong, continuing into this heart-wrencher, "Of Lost Things."‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Oct 2, 2017
A- 93% Outlander: Season 3 - All Debts Paid (TV Episode) While I always felt sympathetic for TV Show Frank (not so much Book Frank), that feeling began to wane during "All Debts Paid," as we watched a man bruised and battered from years spent in a loveless marriage act out in hurtful ways.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B+ 100% Outlander: Season 3 - Surrender (TV Episode) And with that, Claire's half of the narrative may finally pick up steam!‐ Entertainment Weekly

A- 93% Outlander: Season 3 - The Battle Joined (TV Episode) The Droughtlander is over, Sassenachs, and I, for one, am thirsty.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B 94% Pitch: Season 1 (TV, 2016) Once the novelty of a lady playing in the majors wears off, you're left with a pretty standard-issue sports tale -- albeit one with an expertly scouted team that plays very well together.‐ Entertainment Weekly

100% Outlander: Season 2 - Dragonfly in Amber (TV Episode) From the gleaming courts of France to the body-strewn battlefields of Britain, we've been on quite the journey during Outlander's second season.‐ Entertainment Weekly

67% Scream Queens: Season 1 - Ghost Stories (TV Episode) Never have I ever wanted a TV novelization more than The Collected Ghost Stories of Denise Hemphill. Girl needs to put down those handcuffs and pick up a pen right this minute!‐ Entertainment Weekly

89% Scream Queens: Season 1 - Mommie Dearest (TV Episode) Subtlety has never been a defining characteristic of Ryan Murphy's work, and the latest episode of Scream Queens is no exception. This hour was all about mothers - or, more accurately, how our relationship with our mother can really f- us up.‐ Entertainment Weekly

56% Scream Queens: Season 1 - Beware of Young Girls (TV Episode) "Beware of Young Girls" had all the trappings of a filler episode. Sure, we learned a few new things about Dean Munsch (and about Chad's lactose intolerance), but as far as furthering the Red Devil plot, we really got nowhere.‐ Entertainment Weekly

67% Scream Queens: Season 1 - Seven Minutes in Hell (TV Episode) If ever you need to make an air-tight case for staying in on a Saturday night to binge-watch Mafia shows on A&E, use Chanel Oberlin as Exhibit A. After all, the lessons she gleaned from mob culture may very well have saved her life this week.‐ Entertainment Weekly

89% Scream Queens: Season 1 - Haunted House (TV Episode) Judging from the first of three Halloween-centric episodes, Scream Queens is off to a fine start rehabbing the reputation of trick-or-treat-themed programming.‐ Entertainment Weekly

80% Scream Queens: Season 1 - Pumpkin Patch (TV Episode) The race for president is heating up. The race for Kappa Kappa Tau president, that is... And despite being stuck in a pit, it-puts-the-lotion-in-the-basket style, Zayday is running a formidable campaign against the incumbent, Chanel.‐ Entertainment Weekly

89% Scream Queens: Season 1 - Chainsaw (TV Episode) Yet, despite his dimwittedness (or perhaps because of it), douchey Chad is the catalyst for a couple of significant events this episode.‐ Entertainment Weekly

90% Scream Queens: Season 1 - Hell Week (TV Episode) Whether or not you relish equal-opportunity mockery will likely dictate whether you suck up Scream Queens like some sort of bittersweet cocktail.‐ Entertainment Weekly

100% Outlander: Season 2 - The Hail Mary (TV Episode) This week's Outlander episode was all about two men at the end of their lives and how their deathbed decisions would affect generations.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 27, 2016
86% Outlander: Season 2 - Vengeance Is Mine (TV Episode) (Jamie has) risked as much for Claire as she's risked for him -- and "Vengeance Is Mine" is a perfect example of that give and take.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 20, 2016
100% Outlander: Season 2 - Prestonpans (TV Episode) After a couple of humdrum episodes, Outlander returned to fighting form this week with "Prestonpans," a bloody, emotional hour that found Jamie and his clansmen mourning one of their own.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 12, 2016
81% Outlander: Season 2 - Je Suis Prest (TV Episode) I was looking forward to exciting, plot-propelling action on Outlander. But "Je Suis Prest" amounted to little more than a 60-minute training montage -- without the benefits of a Survivor soundtrack or meat punching bags.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted Jun 6, 2016
85% Outlander: Season 2 - The Fox's Lair (TV Episode) This episode was slow-moving and -- dare I say? -- a little dull. But that's the nature of the episodic beast. Some episodes' purpose is simply to bridge the narrative gap from one plotline to another.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 30, 2016
100% Outlander: Season 2 - Faith (TV Episode) This episode proved to me that Caitriona Balfe should be in the awards season discussion... If "Faith" isn't the episode submitted on her behalf for Emmy consideration, someone is not doing their job.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 22, 2016
100% Outlander: Season 2 - Best Laid Schemes... (TV Episode) Several major upcoming moments were set in motion.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 20, 2016
78% Outlander: Season 2 - La Dame Blanche (TV Episode) Claire's faced a number of near-death moments in her brief, 18th-century life (witch trial, anyone?), but never has her life been in such peril in the span of one episode as "La Dame Blanche."‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 23, 2016
100% Outlander: Season 2 - Untimely Resurrection (TV Episode) It feels wrong to say I've missed Captain Black Jack Randall. After all, he's a despicable sadist who's only brought pain and suffering into our heroes' lives.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 23, 2016
94% Outlander: Season 2 - Useful Occupations and Deceptions (TV Episode) It looks for a moment as though Claire will tell Jamie the truth. But as the two are sharing their first truly happy moment in awhile, she lets the opportunity pass her by.‐ Entertainment Weekly

100% Outlander: Season 2 - Through a Glass, Darkly (TV Episode) Even if you've read Diana Gabaldon's novels upon which the Starz series is based, you couldn't have precisely predicted when "Through a Glass, Darkly" would find Claire. And if you haven't read the series, well, this episode was surely jarring.‐ Entertainment Weekly

100% Outlander: Season 2 - Not in Scotland Anymore (TV Episode) The mystery man Claire spied chatting up Mary Hawkins earlier during the party is the Duke's secretary and none other than Alex Randall. Yep, the brother of Black Jack! ‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 24, 2016
88% Outlander: Season 1 - To Ransom a Man's Soul (TV Episode) Credit should also be given to the Outlander team for not shying away from Jamie's rape and its terribly messy and necessary aftermath.‐ Entertainment Weekly
Read More | Posted May 24, 2016
93% Outlander: Season 1 - Wentworth Prison (TV Episode) The end is nigh, Outlander fans. Tonight's "Wentworth Prison" and last week's "The Search" have set the stage for a brutal end to season 1.‐ Entertainment Weekly

93% Outlander: Season 1 - The Search (TV Episode) In what has become something of a recurring theme in this first season, one Fraser has become captive, the other rescuer. In "The Search" it is Claire who must deliver Jamie from the clutches of the Red Coats.‐ Entertainment Weekly
