5/5 100% The X-Files: Season 11 - The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat (TV Episode) Overall, this was one of the silliest hours of The X-Files in a while, but it was also one of the most enjoyable and still had a rather profound message to share.‐ TV Fanatic

4.5/5 100% Counterpart: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Beyond the spy games -- a fun and mystifying spy arc is set into motion from the get-go -- comes the interpersonal dynamics, which are just as provocative.‐ TV Fanatic

3.5/5 100% The X-Files: Season 11 - Plus One (TV Episode) Seeing Scully's and Mulder's doppelgangers gave the Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny something a little different to do rather than playing their usual characters. ‐ TV Fanatic

4.25/5 100% Black Lightning: Season 1 (TV, 2018) I appreciate the show being what it is and not holding back for any reason. It's not trying to compete with any other comics shows currently airing. It's the toughest, most hard-core DC TV show to hit broadcast TV.‐ TV Fanatic

3.75/5 100% The X-Files: Season 11 - This (TV Episode) Anderson and Duchovny were free to be the characters they have grown to love, and we were free to enjoy the entertainment and pick up on little details as necessary. "This" is what I want out of The X-files.‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 88% Godless: Miniseries (TV, 2017) Godless is beautiful. Whether you have a love of westerns or not, the blue skies of New Mexico are fully utilized with the dusty, sprawling landscapes that were once the cornerstone of the American West.‐ TV Fanatic

4.25/5 58% Damnation: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) From my view, Damnation has a lot going for it. The political history of the United States is always worth discussing, and the series features an incredibly talented cast.‐ TV Fanatic

4.5/5 82% Marvel's Runaways: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) Marvel's Runaways appears to be Hulu's version of Riverdale. Much like its counterpart on The CW, Runaways seems to veer away from the comic book canon in a way that should change the show and the future of the characters forever.‐ TV Fanatic

4.25/5 93% The Crown: Season 2 (TV, 2017) Smith makes a portrait of Philip someone we understand rather than someone we revile, and that's due to Foy's opposing portrayal as Elizabeth.‐ TV Fanatic

5/5 93% The Nine Lives of Chloe King: Season 1 (TV, 2011) The juxtaposition from the opening to the closing scene was a total surprise. I can only hope that we are given an opportunity to see the wrongs from the finale righted at the start of a second season.‐ TV Fanatic

4.5/5 92% Manhunt: UNABOMBER (TV, 2017) There is nothing better than a series that piques your interest in the history of the true version of the fictionalized tale being told. Getting more knowledge through entertainment is the best use of the medium.‐ TV Fanatic

3/5 94% The Sinner: Miniseries (TV, 2017) What The Sinner does well is connect the dots. While I believe the attempt was to be a psychological thriller, instead it's a good ol' detective story. And Ambrose is a good detective.‐ TV Fanatic

3.8/5 32% Girlboss: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Girlboss is a series loosely (don't lose the word loosely) inspired by a book about a woman, written by a woman, starring women, and at least half produced and directed by women. And it's awesome.‐ TV Fanatic
