46% Shadowhunters: Season 1 (TV, 2016-2018) Shadowhunters has been an incomprehensible show, one that never offered enough to pull the uninitiated in. Maybe the show will find a better path in its second season, but I don't imagine there'll be many disillusioned viewers returning to find out. - TV Equals EDIT

28% Crossing Lines: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2015) It's almost like Fichtner's reprising his role from Prison Break, playing an agent with a serious drug addiction. It works, as he was as much a standout on that show as he is here. - TV Equals EDIT

88% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Compromised (TV Episode) "Compromised" offered a number of fun moments and great period-appropriate references, while still delivering a good deal of strong character and plot developments. Just an all-around fun time, really. - TV Equals EDIT

67% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Abominations (TV Episode) "Abominations" is a bit of a mixed bag as a result, with the more serious moments jarring as often as they are effecting. - TV Equals EDIT

89% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Shogun (TV Episode) "Shogun"... continues to embrace the season's newfound sense of playfulness. - TV Equals EDIT

82% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 - Out of Time (TV Episode) 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 EDIT

64% Supergirl: Season 2 - The Darkest Places (TV Episode) By no means is "The Darkest Place" a terrible episode, but its focus on some of the show's less successful elements this season makes for a weaker showing all around. - TV Equals EDIT

36% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - River of Time (TV Episode) Add in the fact that everyone is being unnecessarily angsty and moody as they theoretically near the end of their mission, and it makes for another frustrating hour. - TV Equals EDIT

85% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Leviathan (TV Episode) After "Leviathan" continued to flaunt how nonsensical this show's non-rules are, and I just hope that season two finds a way to set legitimate guidelines that restrict the storytelling. - TV Equals EDIT

57% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Last Refuge (TV Episode) All of that would be bad enough on a confusing level, but this episode failed to offer much compelling material anywhere else. - TV Equals EDIT

85% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 1 - Marooned (TV Episode) "Marooned" a surprisingly entertaining hour... The show's improving, but it needs to do less hand-waving in regards to the rules of its time travel. - TV Equals EDIT

100% Dark Matter: Season 3 (TV, 2015-2017) What keeps the stories so episodic is just how randomly it often feels like Dark Matter chooses to return to different storylines. - TV Equals EDIT

71% Orange Is the New Black: Season 5 (TV, 2013) 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 EDIT

100% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.7_init_5.fve (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 EDIT

100% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.5_h4ndshake.sme (TV Episode) What I enjoyed so much about this episode is that it finally put a stronger spotlight on Mobley and Trenton. - TV Equals EDIT

84% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.4_m4ster-s1ave.aes (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 EDIT

95% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.3_logic-b0mb.hc (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 EDIT

100% Mr. Robot: Season 2 - eps2.0_Unm4sk-pt2.tc (Episode 3) (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 EDIT
