3/5 100% This Is Us: Season 5 (TV, 2016) All of this is to say that watching the Pearsons go through normal Pearson problems, on top of watching them go through very real and very raw problems, provided two extremely depressing hours of television. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

5/5 83% Outlander: Season 5 - Better To Marry Than Burn (TV Episode) This show is always more emotionally affecting when it's about the personal relationships of our characters rather than big set pieces, and never has that truth been more on display than in "Better to Marry Than Burn." - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

4/5 100% Schitt's Creek: Season 6 (TV, 2015) "Smoke Signals" reassures us that, amid everything else this season needs to accomplish, [the four Rose's] relationships will still be highlighted. And I really love that journey for us. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

93% American Horror Story: 1984 - Episode 100 (TV Episode) Aside from a quick shout-out to Briarcliff, "Episode 100" was just your average episode of AHS: 1984...Not that there's anything wrong with that, I had just been expecting more. - TV Guide EDIT

89% American Horror Story: 1984 - Red Dawn (TV Episode) By the end of "Red Dawn," the sun has risen at Camp Redwood and AHS:1984 has blown up its entire premise. Or is beginning to reveal its actual premise, depending on how you look at it. - TV Guide EDIT

3/5 90% This Is Us: Season 4 (TV, 2016) I have to admit that I thought the show would string us along for several episodes before revealing how these people were tied into the main story, but good on This Is Us - by the end of "Strangers" we know how they're initially connected. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

94% American Horror Story: 1984 - Camp Redwood (TV Episode) The premiere episode of 1984 has played out exactly like a 1980s slasher film would--it's a perfect homage to the genre - but I'm wondering when it's going to go all American Horror Story on us. You know, aliens, the antichrist, that Lady Gaga blood orgy. - TV Guide EDIT
