4/5 100% The Bold Type: Season 2 (TV, 2018) Casual reminder: You just watched an hour of television about oral sex and menstrual cups on a network that used to be called ABC Family. The world is wild, man.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% The Fosters: Season 5 (TV, 2017-2018) It even manages to teach us one last story about the realities of being a foster parent. It's just so, so lovely. We are not worthy.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

A- 67% For the People: Season 1 (TV, 2018) The latest Shondaland venture (created by Paul William Davies) is about - you guessed it - attractive lawyers fighting for justice and, probably, hooking up in New York City. And you guys, I am here for this. ‐ Entertainment Weekly

4/5 94% This Is Us: Season 2 - The Wedding (TV Episode) So, it's nice that This Is Us ends the season on a mostly high note (oh, we will discuss the things), or at least a cathartic one. There is dancing and love and there is cake. We deserve the cake.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% This Is Us: Season 2 - This Big, Amazing, Beautiful Life (TV Episode) It's a surprising choice for the penultimate episode of the season, but a beautiful story nonetheless. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 91% This Is Us: Season 2 - Vegas, Baby (TV Episode) Wasn't it a relief to see Jack alive and well and making us all feel inadequate? Don't get me wrong, lighter fare for This Is Us is still emotionally exhausting, but, like, in a fun and hopeful way!‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% This Is Us: Season 2 - The Car (TV Episode) "The Car" may not be as intense or dramatic as "Super Bowl Sunday," but it is just as emotional - maybe even more so. It is quiet and bittersweet, which, to be honest, is how I prefer my This Is Us.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 86% This Is Us: Season 2 - Super Bowl Sunday (TV Episode) From the Super Bowl to the Super Bawl, am I right? Sorry, not sorry: A cheesy dad joke just felt like the right way to honor the King of All Dads, Jack Pearson.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% This Is Us: Season 2 - That'll Be the Day (TV Episode) Like so many things with this show, what's actually going on isn't anything monumental, but every single scene set in the past has extra weight to it because we know what we know. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% This Is Us: Season 2 - Clooney (TV Episode) This Is Us isn't really known for being subtle, but that final shot of a smoke detector with a missing battery was a lot.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% This Is Us: Season 2 - The Fifth Wheel (TV Episode) What fresh, incredibly well-acted hell is this, This Is Us? Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I wish the entire episode had stayed right in that cozy-looking group-therapy room at Kevin's swanky, court-ordered rehab facility.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 89% This Is Us: Season 2 - Number Three (TV Episode) Feels less like a pause to focus on a character in an ensemble, and more like a glimpse into a world where This Is Us is a show about a man named Randall Pearson, who we get to see at all stages of his life and sometimes his extended family visits.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% This Is Us: Season 2 - Number Two (TV Episode) "Number Two" has its own moments that completely gut you, but it ends on a hopeful note. That's not a typo! ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 90% This Is Us: Season 2 - Number One (TV Episode) Uncurl yourselves from the fetal position, This Is Us fam. "Number One" is a doozy of an episode. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 67% This Is Us: Season 2 - The Most Disappointed Man (TV Episode) You're winning me over on Miguel, This Is Us, and Toby's re-proposal is endearing on its own, but don't press your luck.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 89% This Is Us: Season 2 - The 20's (TV Episode) Not a ton happens plot-wise, which might upset some people, but filling the blanks in the Pearson family history is basically the whole point of this show. It's a long journey, people, and we have much to learn. So, the haters can stuff it!‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 89% This Is Us: Season 2 - Still There (TV Episode) So much is said about the big, series-changing twists, that a much subtler but better crafted plot turn in an episode can be overlooked.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 67% This Is Us: Season 2 - Deja Vu (TV Episode) Here's a weird, fun sentence: Sylvester Stallone made me tear up while watching This Is Us.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% This Is Us: Season 2 - A Manny-Splendored Thing (TV Episode) Beth and Randall are the best of us. They're also the best of Us. See what I did there? Even when This Is Us is at its schmaltziest, we can always count on Beth and Randall to provide an affecting and authentic look at marriage.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% This Is Us: Season 2 - A Father's Advice (TV Episode) There is so much in the past to mine, I sincerely hope people aren't just sitting around with bated breath waiting for Kevin to break his leg and signal that the end is nigh. Let Jack live, so to speak. Let the show live. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% This Is Us: Season 1 - Memphis (TV Episode) Episodes like "Memphis" make me wish there was some way I could reach through the screen and give all of my fellow This Is Us fans a nice, long hug.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 89% This Is Us: Season 1 - What Now? (TV Episode) The latest installment of This Is Us is titled "What Now?" and I legitimately believe it came from the writers just sitting around, asking themselves that very question after killing off such a beloved character in the season's best episode yet.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 80% This Is Us: Season 1 - Moonshadow (TV Episode) This Is Us has been on such a tear of superb episodes, it was bound to fall back to Earth eventually. It's just a shame that this particular episode also happens to be the season finale. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% This Is Us: Season 1 - The Big Day (TV Episode) It's risky to bench two-thirds of your stars in order to shine some light on some pretty minor characters for a whole episode. Yet, that is exactly what This Is Us does with "The Big Day." And I'm happy to report it works. It really, really works.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% This Is Us: Season 1 - Three Sentences (TV Episode) Of course, the main culprits of the weepiness in "Three Sentences" are some quick glimpses of a funeral - yes, that funeral - and a very emotional POUND fitness class. I promise it's not as weird as it sounds.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 86% This Is Us: Season 1 - I Call Marriage (TV Episode) Randall is really having a rough go of things. This is distressing because I think we've all come to the agreement that Randall is the light of our lives and we would all very much like to be wrapped up in his strong arms.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% This Is Us: Season 1 - Jack Pearson's Son (TV Episode) Isn't it wonderful when a slow-burn story line finally comes together in the most beautiful, heartbreaking way?‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 88% This Is Us: Season 1 - The Trip (TV Episode) "The Trip" isn't just about the Big Three heading up to the family cabin for one last hurrah before Rebecca sells the place. It's also a nod to Randall's mushroom-induced afternoon of self-discovery and enlightenment. That's right, our Hot Nerd trips hard‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 75% This Is Us: Season 1 - Last Christmas (TV Episode) The parts are greater than the sum. Don't get me wrong, I look forward to my weekly visits with the Pearson clan - we laugh! We cry! We talk of hats! - but I'm still waiting to fall head over heels in love. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% This Is Us: Season 1 - The Right Thing to Do (TV Episode) For those This Is Us fans who've been sweating it out over the past month, wondering if anything bad happens on Christmas Eve or if Rebecca was just a big lying liar, you can rest easy: Nothing bad happens on Christmas Eve! Well, nothing horrible, anyway.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 88% This Is Us: Season 1 - The Game Plan (TV Episode) To be honest, I thought This Is Us would stretch out the mystery much longer.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 78% This Is Us: Season 1 - Career Days (TV Episode) Oh, Jack. Lovable Jack! In a few short episodes, it's become clear that our mustachioed dreamer is the heart of This Is Us. It's no surprise then, that the two standout scenes in this rather mediocre hour involve Jack and his sons.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% This Is Us: Season 1 - The Best Washing Machine in the Whole World (TV Episode) Finally, finally! In "The Best Washing Machine in the Whole World," This Is Us delves into one of the most interesting relationships in both timelines: Kevin and Randall.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 90% This Is Us: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode) I'm happy to report This Is Us lives up to the hype. Sure, I have some questions now that we're all hip to The Twist that connects its characters, but I trust the show will be fine. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% This Is Us: Season 1 - The Pool (TV Episode) But there they are, all five of them huddled together, comforted in the arms of their family. Man, this show knows how to put a heartwarming button on an episode, doesn't it?‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

B 70% 9-1-1: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Overall, the show ends up more glossy than edgy. The acting is very, very good - with a cast led by Angela Bassett, Connie Britton, and Peter Krause, how could it not be?‐ Entertainment Weekly

2/5 No Score Yet The Fosters: Season 4 (TV, 2016-2017) The back half of The Fosters season four has been extremely uneven. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% The Fosters: Season 3 (TV, 2015-2016) With so much going on, there was no way every story line would get its due. It's a forgivable offense though, since there's something interesting about each one (save for the Cortney stuff), and also the gasping. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 91% This Is Us: Season 2 (TV, 2017-2018) It's only episode one and already [Mandy] Moore and Milo Ventimiglia are bringing it. Buckle up, kiddies. Season two is going to be intense.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% Feud: Bette and Joan - You Mean All This Time We Could Have Been Friends? (TV Episode) Anyone else burst into tears as the final credits rolled, thinking about how freaking sad Joan and Bette ended up? No? No one? Totally. Not me either. I have complete control over my emotions.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% Feud: Bette and Joan - Abandoned (TV Episode) "Abandoned!" is the closest Bette and Joan come to acknowledging that their rivalry continues because they each want what the other has. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

2/5 80% Feud: Bette and Joan - Hagsploitation (TV Episode) It's all a little too déjà vu to make for a compelling episode ... The biggest issue with "Hagsploitation," though, is pulling focus from the premise of the show.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% Feud: Bette and Joan - And the Winner Is... - The Oscars of 1963 (TV Episode) If you thought Joan was going to take her snub and go quietly into the night, well, what are you even doing here? This is Joan freaking Crawford.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
