79% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 - North (TV Episode) [FTWD Finale] gave us, hands down (sorry!), the most gruesome zombie kill of the "Dead" universe. It was a lurid distraction from a pair of uneven episodes that show our characters increasingly beholden to, and lost in, the violent chaos of the new world.‐ New York Times

79% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 - Pablo & Jessica (TV Episode) Yet our threesome might be breaking up soon. In the episode's last, and most thoughtful scene, Strand approaches the groom who, we begin to understand, is keeping his infected wife in a locked hotel room - his last gift to her.‐ New York Times

62% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 - Los Muertos (TV Episode) Who didn't roll their eyes when Madison turned maudlin and started getting drunk, or even got angry when Strand (that idiot) started banging on that stupid piano!‐ New York Times

87% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 - Grotesque (TV Episode) This series' focus on border life between Southern California and Mexico is arguably the strongest aspect of the show.‐ New York Times

63% American Horror Story: Hotel - Be Our Guest (TV Episode) It was populated with plots that went nowhere... as well as plots that were set up and resolved with minimal interest.‐ New York Times

82% American Horror Story: Hotel - Battle Royale (TV Episode) The most emotionally involved I have been all season long was when the actress Gabourey Sibide not only returned, but did so as her season three character Queenie, the human voodoo doll and witch who can trace her ancestry back to Tituba of Salem.‐ New York Times

86% American Horror Story: Hotel - She Gets Revenge (TV Episode) Once again Denis O'Hare shows how it's done: it's one of the season's high points when the bartender realizes that her son is not going to turn away from her in disgust, but instead accepts his father as the woman she now is.‐ New York Times

64% American Horror Story: Hotel - She Wants Revenge (TV Episode) "She Wants Revenge" returned to one of this season's most interesting themes - how love and hate can be bedfellows.‐ New York Times

36% American Horror Story: Hotel - The Ten Commandments Killer (TV Episode) Is the Countess scary? Unsettling, even? Only if you have a real problem when people over accessorize.‐ New York Times

100% American Horror Story: Hotel - Flicker (TV Episode) Hotel is circling an interesting idea - what is fame if not a battle against morality? - but dig too deep, and everything falls apart: how does vampiric immortality help movie stars stay relevant when they're not allowed to show their face in public?‐ New York Times

67% American Horror Story: Hotel - Room 33 (TV Episode) "Just fluff him up a bit for me," the Countess says of Will. Maybe this season is supposed to be about fluff - gory, violent fluff that titillates without gratification. To what end?‐ New York Times

71% American Horror Story: Hotel - Room Service (TV Episode) This conversation about vampirism, AIDS, sickness and rebirth might be cluttered with mixed metaphors and burdened by so much plot, but it is by far the most interesting thing Hotel has going yet.‐ New York Times

86% American Horror Story: Hotel - Devil's Night (TV Episode) The hypocrisy of having such a dark condemnation of our unquenchable thirst for violence as entertainment come from Hotel was as hard to swallow as an amuse-bouche that's still breathing.‐ New York Times

87% American Horror Story: Hotel - Mommy (TV Episode) On the whole, "Mommy" was less burdened by clunky exposition than previous episodes, barring the introduction of Ramona, but what sins can't be excused by the sight of Angela Bassett retrieving a throwing knife out of her Afro?‐ New York Times

83% American Horror Story: Hotel - Chutes and Ladders (TV Episode) The only mystery going thus far is how sewing dead bodies into old mattresses brings back the dead. So perhaps here is where horror and camp begin to work against each other: Can anything that preens so glibly in the spotlight's glare truly be scary?‐ New York Times

77% American Horror Story: Hotel - Checking In (TV Episode) If Hotel will have a problem, "mediocre ambition" is not likely to be it.‐ New York Times

71% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 - Shiva (TV Episode) Fear the Walking Dead has settled for merely telling us that Madison and her family are in danger, rather than showing us.‐ New York Times

85% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 - Sicut Cervus (TV Episode) One of my favorite things about this show is that it constantly makes you wonder "What would I do?"‐ New York Times

46% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 - Captive (TV Episode) Let's get it out of the way: No one is buying this Jack and Alicia thing.‐ New York Times

91% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 - Blood in the Streets (TV Episode) It's not the most subtle approach to storytelling, but pleading for a coyote to smuggle a group of people out of the country and into Mexico was still a satisfying inversion.‐ New York Times

83% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 - Ouroboros (TV Episode) Fear the Walking Dead has achieved what all these franchises aim for: It has made the original world richer.‐ New York Times

79% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 - We All Fall Down (TV Episode) I, for one, am looking forward to a mystery playing itself out slowly.‐ New York Times
