4/5 No Score Yet Bitten: Season 3 (TV, 2016) A year ago, I wouldn't have questioned that, but given his new dictatorship built on a reign of terror, it could mean she'll be more interested in what the man has to say.‐ TV Fanatic

3/5 45% The Purge: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Maybe the violence and that so many are willing to pick up weapons and take to the streets is the message [of the show]. In the meantime, just kick back and enjoy the Purge.‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 84% Sharp Objects: Miniseries - Milk (TV Episode) I greatly enjoyed getting to know Camille and her pain early on in the season. While many believed it was slow moving, the introspection and revelations were some of Amy Adams best work.‐ TV Fanatic

3/5 100% Mr. Mercedes: Season 2 (TV, 2018) Whether it's because the actors feel a kinship when they get down to business or the writers get excited at the possibility of what Gleeson and Treadaway will do with their material is beside the point. They're electric.‐ TV Fanatic

4.35/5 100% Sharp Objects: Miniseries - Falling (TV Episode) I'd love to know what Adora has on Vickery because he doesn't seem to get all that much out of their "relationship" to keep her sick secrets close to the vest.‐ TV Fanatic

2.5/5 74% Arrow: Season 3 - My Name Is Oliver Queen (TV Episode) If you say you missed the shark jumping in Arrow Season 3 Episode 23, I'm going to have a hard time believing you, because that was the worst episode of the series and served absolutely no point.‐ TV Fanatic

3/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - This Is Your Sword (TV Episode) The fight scene was fun, except Felicity has no place anywhere near combat like that. It's getting out of hand that she keeps surviving those events unscathed.‐ TV Fanatic

3.7/5 88% Arrow: Season 3 - Ah Sah-Him (TV Episode) There's a lot about "Al Sah-Him" that was rather annoying. There were also some developments that were fun to see played out and that have promise going forward. ‐ TV Fanatic

4.5/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - The Fallen (TV Episode) During Arrow Season 3 Episode 20 the theme was most certainly death and rebirth, but the ramifications of this hour will most likely be felt for some time to come.‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 94% Arrow: Season 3 - Broken Arrow (TV Episode) I'm unsure how I feel about what's happening. It's apparent the series is changing and we're either along for the ride or jumping off at the end of Arrow Season 3. We don't have that much longer to find out.‐ TV Fanatic

3.8/5 86% Arrow: Season 3 - The Offer (TV Episode) The best development was Nyssa walking away from her old man. ‐ TV Fanatic

4.3/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - Nanda Parbat (TV Episode) Did we really witness a game changer before the credits rolled on "Nanda Parbat?"‐ TV Fanatic

3/5 93% Arrow: Season 3 - The Return (TV Episode) What an odd (uneven?) hour of television. Instead of a well-woven story, Arrow Season 3 Episode 14 consisted of moments in time and they were quite scattered. ‐ TV Fanatic

5/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - Canaries (TV Episode) The return of Sara Lance and her alter ego Canary was wonderfully done.‐ TV Fanatic

3.5/5 81% Arrow: Season 3 - Uprising (TV Episode) Well, that happened. Arrow made a relatively triumphant return to Starling City in Arrow Season 3 Episode 12 but Oliver's left a little to be desired. It really is that easy to separate the man and the hood.‐ TV Fanatic

4.8/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - Midnight City (TV Episode) It looks a little different than it did at this time last year, but Team Arrow is back. I daresay Arrow Season 3 Episode 11 was yet another installment when Oliver was not needed.‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - The Climb (TV Episode) I'm anxious to hear how all of the Malcolm Merlyn fans defend his actions. He has a soul so black there is no way to redeem him.‐ TV Fanatic

4.3/5 94% Arrow: Season 3 - The Brave and the Bold (TV Episode) Arrow Season 3 Episode 8 didn't live up to the first hour, but it did pretty much as expected -- showed The Flash team dealing with criminals can be a mean business and allowed Barry to give Oliver a much needed pep talk about his humanity.‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 85% Arrow: Season 3 - Draw Back Your Bow (TV Episode) Holy Smoak! Ray Palmer and Felicity absolutely sizzle as they do business together. That special surprise at the end? It's so exciting!‐ TV Fanatic

3.7/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak (TV Episode) The takeaway from the hour? Donna Smoak must move to Starling City as soon as possible. She's a vision, a delight and adds so much to Felicity that has been missing. ‐ TV Fanatic

3.5/5 80% Arrow: Season 3 - The Magician (TV Episode) What was unanticipated was how little the role of Team Arrow was in the 50th episode. Was it because they were missing their heart -- Felicity? I'm open to suggestions.‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 91% Arrow: Season 3 - Corto Maltese (TV Episode) All it took was a continuous stream of lies and several deaths to start this story rolling in a completely different direction. The future looks pretty bright right now. ‐ TV Fanatic

4.3/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - Sara (TV Episode) The series took a huge chance by switching things up in the beginning and adding Sara to the Lance family as the first Canary. It feels, finally, like it will pay off. ‐ TV Fanatic

4.5/5 92% Arrow: Season 3 - The Calm (TV Episode) Arrow pulled it off again with an exciting and buzzworthy premiere. It truly was the calm before the storm.‐ TV Fanatic

3.5/5 96% The Sinner: The Sinner (TV, 2018) There is one thing this season has going for it and that's the cast. Carrie Coon? You can't go wrong with her.‐ TV Fanatic

2/5 71% Arrow: Season 4 - Eleven-Fifty-Nine (TV Episode) If only Laurel and/or Black Canary had been given a viable story during Arrow Season 4 from which to launch this popping story.‐ TV Fanatic

4.25/5 86% Arrow: Season 4 - Beacon of Hope (TV Episode) That was the best hour of Arrow in ages! It's because ["Beacon of Hope"] was generally more focused on the female perspective, and the women were written to their strengths across the board.‐ TV Fanatic

2.5/5 79% Arrow: Season 4 - Broken Hearts (TV Episode) Seeing Laurel work as the DA was more interesting, but even that story wasn't riveting. Arrow is just not as compelling as it once was. ‐ TV Fanatic

2.75/5 79% Arrow: Season 4 - Taken (TV Episode) This was an incredibly boring hour of television was bookended by a couple of decent scenes with sandwich slices of others inside.‐ TV Fanatic

3/5 79% Arrow: Season 4 - Code of Silence (TV Episode) When an entire hour becomes rather insignificant other than the final five AHA minutes, I have to wonder why... All in all, it was very disappointing.‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 73% Arrow: Season 4 - Sins of the Father (TV Episode) If anybody asks my opinion, I'd say Felicity Smoak has a helluva lot more courage than Oliver Queen.‐ TV Fanatic

3.25/5 80% Arrow: Season 4 - Unchained (TV Episode) It was an hour of moments rather than a truly good episode of television. And, yes, there were a lot of moments during "Unchained." Some of them very good, thankfully.‐ TV Fanatic

3.5/5 73% Arrow: Season 4 - Blood Debts (TV Episode) I'm glad Thea was feeling a little bit brighter by the end of "Blood Debts," and her scenes with Anarky made Anarky a worthwhile character. I'm glad she let him go to come back another day, because their dynamic is interesting...‐ TV Fanatic

4.5/5 88% Arrow: Season 4 - Dark Waters (TV Episode) There was a lot to like about this midseason finale. It was really well paced, and although it was pretty dramatic and dark, it also managed to be festive and cheerful. ‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 100% Arrow: Season 4 - Brotherhood (TV Episode) "Brotherhood" was a really interesting hour. Not only was Diggle trying to brush off any feelings of concern for his brother Andy, while Oliver dealt with his desires to bring down Damien Darhk, but Ray Palmer was being introspective. ‐ TV Fanatic

4.25/5 100% Arrow: Season 4 - Lost Souls (TV Episode) What "Lost Souls" did best was remind us how quickly Oliver and Felcity got together and threw caution to the wind... So much of this hour was about two people who are finding their way in their new dynamic, and it was beautiful.‐ TV Fanatic

3.75/5 94% Arrow: Season 4 - Beyond Redemption (TV Episode) Stephen Amell was finally given an opportunity to dig into some emotional material without flashing back to the island, and it paid off. That was one of the best scenes he's had in a very long time. ‐ TV Fanatic

4.3/5 89% Arrow: Season 4 - The Candidate (TV Episode) This was a pretty great hour in terms of plot development. If only those pesky flashbacks could catch the hell up and be nearly as interesting as the present day, all would be well in the Arrowverse. ‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 94% Arrow: Season 4 - Green Arrow (TV Episode) The verdict is "Green Arrow" is a definite improvement over the end of last season. So far, so good. However, I'm skeptical over the promise of a lighter tone.‐ TV Fanatic

4.25/5 71% Arrow: Season 6 - Docket No. 11-19-41-73 (TV Episode) The conversations with the family were sweet, not maudlin. Everyone was supportive and only looking for the positive. It was rather remarkable.‐ TV Fanatic
