87% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Fifteen: Nighthawks (TV Episode) Riverdale is a mad delight. This show has taken an American icon of blandness and turned it into a bizarre, over-the-top mystery show.‐ TV Equals

86% Supergirl: Season 3 (TV, 2017-2018) After an entire summer away from these characters, it's tough to come back and see our heroine so far removed from everyone else. ‐ TV Equals

82% The Flash: Season 4 (TV, 2017-2018) There's every reason to hope The Flash has returned from hiatus creatively recharged and ready to deliver on the promise of a lighter, more fun-filled season.‐ TV Equals

100% Dark Matter: Season 3 (TV, 2017) What keeps the stories so episodic is just how randomly it often feels like Dark Matter chooses to return to different storylines. ‐ TV Equals

80% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 (TV, 2016-2017) Let's be real, the big win of this episode - and this season - is the arrival of Damien Darhk and Reverse-Flash as two of the season's Big Bads.‐ TV Equals

73% Orange Is the New Black: Season 5 (TV, 2017) Where the show hit hardest was, fortunately, with the storyline it absolutely needed to: Taystee's fight to bring change to the prison and get justice for Poussey.‐ TV Equals

100% Supergirl: Season 2 (TV, 2016-2017) Hoechlin excels both as the superhero and the middle-mannered Clark Kent, bringing an element of the Christopher Reeve version of the character to the modern era. He's a wonderful addition to this world, playing perfectly off of Melissa Benoist...‐ TV Equals

84% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.9_pyth0n-pt1.p7z (TV Episode) I can honestly say I have no idea where things are going to go. I've been hard on the show this season, but I remain hopeful that it can deliver a mind-blowing wrap-up that can leave us all a bit more hopeful for next season.‐ TV Equals

100% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps.2.8_h1dden-pr0cess.axx (TV Episode) What we did get was actually some of the show's strongest material this season, but it doesn't fully make up for the long, dead stretches in "eps2.8h1dden-pr0cess.axx".‐ TV Equals

100% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.6_succ3ss0r.p12 (TV Episode) What I enjoyed so much about this episode is that it finally put a stronger spotlight on Mobley and Trenton.‐ TV Equals

89% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.5_h4ndshake.sme (TV Episode) "eps2.5_h4ndshake.sme" put a fine point on just how meandering Elliot's arc has been this season, leaving me with a bad taste in my mouth and questions for what's to come.‐ TV Equals

94% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.4_m4ster-s1ave.aes (TV Episode) Some of these changes worked, others didn't, but whatever the case, there's no denying that "eps2.4m4ster-s1ave.aes" was just an off entry for the show.‐ TV Equals

89% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.2_init_1.asec (TV Episode) Watching Elliot fight so hard last episode was great; here, he'd lost his fight, and it was a more lethargic hour for it. ‐ TV Equals

100% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.1_k3rnel-pan1c.ksd (TV Episode) More so than the premiere, this episode really focused on Elliot, and while he might not be immediately headed back to fsociety, it's clear he's back on that path. ‐ TV Equals

87% Preacher: Season 1 - Finish the Song (TV Episode) All of that stuff worked fine, but this episode faltered with the one element of this season that has never really worked.‐ TV Equals

100% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc (TV Episode) It seems that [Angela] might be done trying to legitimately change things because, well, what has it gotten her? It's a dark turn for her character, but fascinating to watch. Just like the entire show, really.‐ TV Equals

60% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 (TV, 2016) The bigger issue is that the show feels a bit like it's forcing the characters to stay together just because we wouldn't have a show otherwise.‐ TV Equals

63% Blood & Oil: Season 1 (TV, 2015) On the one hand, it's full of a lot of the cheesy stereotypes and ludicrous plotting that my soap-loving side is crazy about. On the other... that's about all there is, and what's there isn't very good. ‐ TV Equals

86% Doctor Who: Season 9 - Hell Bent (TV Episode) The Doctor stands alone once again, once more wearing his traditional outfit and wielding an awesome new screwdriver... It's a hopeful place to leave things, and a fitting cap to the best season of the show in years.‐ TV Equals

89% Doctor Who: Season 9 - Heaven Sent (TV Episode) "Heaven Sent" is not only the best episode of Doctor Who this season, it's easily one of the best hours of television produced in the now decade-long revival era.‐ TV Equals

65% Doctor Who: Season 9 - Sleep No More (TV Episode) Sadly, the show had very little to offer other than a gimmicky shooting style, making "Sleep No More" feel like the first real misfire of the season.‐ TV Equals

94% Doctor Who: Season 9 - The Zygon Invasion (TV Episode) "The Zygon Invasion" was full of dark, cramped corridors, alien shapeshifters, and some genuinely unsettling scenes. It was another strong entry in what's shaping up as one of the strongest seasons of the show in years.‐ TV Equals

85% Doctor Who: Season 9 - The Woman Who Lived (TV Episode) With an episode all about the negative effects of living forever. The fire-breathing lion-man was just a bonus.‐ TV Equals

79% Doctor Who: Season 9 - The Magician's Apprentice (TV Episode) This time out, [Clara] seems more comfortable than ever in her role as Earth's liaison with the Doctor, which also gives the show an excuse to bring UNIT back into the picture.‐ TV Equals

89% Doctor Who: Season 9 - The Witch's Familiar (TV Episode) "The Witch's Familiar" brought the season nine opener of Doctor Who to a satisfying close, even if it didn't offer anything too exciting or revelatory about our characters.‐ TV Equals

83% UnReal: Season 2 (TV, 2016) Well... safe to say that UnREAL is unapologetically back, delivering a season premiere that quickly reestablishes the cold, cruel world that exists behind-the-scenes and on-the-set of Everlasting. ‐ TV Equals

47% Lucifer: Season 1 (TV, 2016) My main hope would be that the show is able to incorporate a bit more of the fantastic into its week-to-week proceedings. For now, though, there's enough to like in Ellis' performance to give the show a few more viewings as it attempts to find itself.‐ TV Equals

84% Preacher: Season 1 - Sundowner (TV Episode) All of the character work this week, including the scenes between Emily and Tulip, was great, but special mention also has to go to the hotel room fight with a seraphim at the top of the hour.‐ TV Equals
