62% Marvel's The Punisher: Season 1 (TV, 2017) No matter how many sad faces Frank Castle makes about his trauma, The Punisher can never escape the terrible gravity that its most basic purpose is inviting viewers to enjoy watching an angry man murder as many people as he can.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 85% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 - Night (TV Episode) The show overplays its hand here, sapping the terror and brutality out of this world at its most climactic moment.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 - The Bridge (TV Episode) It's some spectacular acting from Elisabeth Moss, pretending to be a woman who's doing a solid bit of pretending of her own.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 75% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 - Jezebels (TV Episode) This is why structural inequality and the systems of our cultures are so important: By and large, they determine how monstrous we become.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 - Faithful (TV Episode) Gilead, like so much of patriarchy itself, is about the emotional precariousness of entitled little boys, acted out on the world by grown-ass men with fists and knives and guns and no self-awareness.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 - Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum (TV Episode) The world has shrunk for Offred, and it just keeps on shrinking. She has a life in miniature, a dollhouse life, and she is a doll to be taken out, played with, then put away.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 88% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 - Late (TV Episode) If things are bad for Offred, they're worse for Ofglen.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 - Birth Day (TV Episode) So much of Atwood's story is wound around exploring what happens when a society takes arch-conservative ideas about women to their absolute conclusion.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 - Offred (TV Episode) In the midst of the horrors of Gilead -- the mutilations, the executions, the ritual rapes -- the most upsetting scenes to watch are sometimes the normal ones, because you know how they end.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 94% Westworld: Season 1 - The Bicameral Mind (TV Episode) It raises complex questions about when violence is necessary to resist tyranny and reclaim your humanity from those who would systematically dehumanize and brutalize you.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 86% Westworld: Season 1 - The Well-Tempered Clavier (TV Episode) Maeve has become quite the civil-rights crusader in the last several episodes, and she's still hard at work recruiting her robot army.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 95% Westworld: Season 1 - Trace Decay (TV Episode) The reason that the hosts are coming apart at the seams - or, arguably, finally coming together - is because they are not allowed to heal from their trauma.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% Westworld: Season 1 - Trompe L'Oeil (TV Episode) It's time for another week of Have You Questioned the Nature of Your Reality? with our host Bernard Lowe, the nebbish programmer who has been dreaming of his dead son and acting weird with robots for as long as we've known him.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 88% Westworld: Season 1 - The Adversary (TV Episode) If we didn't know Westworld was a horror story already, we know the moment we see it through Maeve's eyes, as she walks through the cold, calculated nuts and bots of what it means to turn other people into objects, into profit, into parts.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 92% Westworld: Season 1 - Contrapasso (TV Episode) The play-within-a-play conceit of Westworld is meant to implicate us - to reveal not only how the stories we tell as a culture reflect our beliefs, but how they affect the people we tell them about in unexpectedly real ways.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 95% Westworld: Season 1 - Dissonance Theory (TV Episode) We've spent the first four episodes of the show viewing the Man in Black as the misogynistic villain of the story, the scourge of hosts like Dolores. What if he's their savior instead? What would it mean if he were both?‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 96% Westworld: Season 1 - The Stray (TV Episode) For now, the synthetic woman programmed to be a damsel-in-distress will have to settle for something almost as radical. She's becoming more than the tired, sexist role assigned to her by the men who run her world, and finding a way to save herself.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 9 (TV Episode) They are finally stepping into the moment that has been waiting for them for 25 years. With all these abstract, arcane bits of mythology finally starting to congeal into something more tangible, it feels like maybe we are too.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 2 (TV Episode) Again and again in Twin Peaks, we see the inability to grasp or face the revelations of the subconscious as inescapable tragedies.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 1 (TV Episode) Twin Peaks: The Return suffuses itself almost entirely in the mind-bending supernatural symbolism that later defined it.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

100% Rick and Morty: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) No matter how dark it gets, Rick and Morty's characters still seem human.‐ Wired

4/5 96% Westworld: Season 1 - Chestnut (TV Episode) This week we get to enter it alongside its human guests. They are its audience much like we are its audience, although the comparison is often less than flattering.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
