4.5/5 No Score Yet Berlin Station: Season 2 (TV, 2017) Berlin Station is back and firing on all cylinders. The new characters made themselves at home instantly, and the action began without a hitch. There is no doubt this now seasoned spy drama will be as good as or better than its freshman season.‐ TV Fanatic

4.8/5 100% Feud: Bette and Joan - Mommie Dearest (TV Episode) The tone of their voices as they were arguing were perfection, and I loved hearing this as Joan was dragging herself off set: "And it was Gloria Swanson who was robbed in 1950, not YOU, b----!"‐ 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
