85% American Horror Story: Cult - Valerie Solanas Died for Your Sins: Scumbag (TV Episode) This season keeps getting better and better the more we know, and Murphy and his writers have perfectly plotted some real curve-balls this season that I genuinely didn't see coming.‐ TV Equals

88% American Horror Story: Cult - Mid-Western Assassin (TV Episode) Obviously, the timing of the episode was too close for comfort to the tragic events in Las Vegas, so producer Ryan Murphy wisely trimmed things down a bit.‐ TV Equals

100% Mr. Robot: Season 3 - Eps3.0_Power-Saver-Mode.H (TV Episode) Mr. Robot is truly a show like no other, and fans wouldn't have it any other way.‐ TV Equals

88% Star Trek: Discovery: Season 1 - The Butcher's Knife Cares Not for the Lamb's Cry (TV Episode) The show might still be finding its footing, sure, but you can say that about a lot of classic shows when they first started out, as I mentioned in my last review. Give it time, and this "STD" might be worth catching. (Sorry, had to do it!)‐ TV Equals

8% Marvel's Inhumans: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Indeed, for such an impressively mounted endeavor, it sure looks pretty cheap, for the most part, leaving one to wonder if the show wouldn't have been better off simply forgoing the IMAX thing and going straight-to-TV.‐ TV Equals

85% Star Trek: Discovery: Season 1 - Battle at the Binary Stars (TV Episode) It was also a kind of a letdown ... especially to a long-time fan.‐ TV Equals

100% Star Trek: Discovery: Season 1 - The Vulcan Hello (TV Episode) This is obviously going to be a show that reflects the current times we live in, just as the past shows did before it.‐ TV Equals

88% American Horror Story: Cult - Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (TV Episode) I can't imagine animal lovers cared too much for that one, but yeah, they went there. ‐ TV Equals

73% American Horror Story: Cult - Neighbors from Hell (TV Episode) Nothing is deadlier than horror than being boring. That's way scarier than any killer clowns, am I right?‐ TV Equals

69% Preacher: Season 2 - The End of the Road (TV Episode) What made SOK and Herr Starr great foes in particular was that we got these great flashbacks to their histories, shedding light on who they were and how they came to be the way they are now in a way that fleshed them out as characters.‐ TV Equals

89% Preacher: Season 2 - On Your Knees (TV Episode) I do think that, while the whole Eugene in Hell subplot was a bit too dragged out, in the end, it was worth it.‐ TV Equals

84% American Horror Story: Cult - Election Night (TV Episode) While it remains to be seen whether or not the rest of the season lives up to the premiere, so good so far. Now bring on the Cult- and the bees. ‐ TV Equals

85% Mr. Mercedes: Season 1 (TV, 2017) I may have my quibbles about some of it, particularly in terms of the unnecessary changes, but overall, it's a pretty solid adaptation to date. ‐ TV Equals

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 16 (TV Episode) Our much-beloved Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan, clearly relishing the moment) was finally returned to us, in all his glory. It was an exceptionally well-earned moment, and if some might balk that it came so late in the series, well, that's their problem.‐ TV Equals

100% The Strain: Season 4 (TV, 2017) It's obvious that all of the core cast members are spread out all over the place, but are still in touch to some degree, with each working towards a specific goal.‐ TV Equals

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 14 (TV Episode) Just the fact that I had to write a sentence like "She puts her face back on" in a review makes me love this show more than I can express, lol. ‐ TV Equals

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 15 (TV Episode) Boy, has it been a fun ride! Can't wait to see what happens next!‐ TV Equals

75% Preacher: Season 2 - Puzzle Piece (TV Episode) The show made deft use of Edith Piaf's music (of all things) as a way of building intensity in the Grail attack, and that the bits about Harry Connick Jr. were a hoot, though you have to wonder what he might think of them, lol. ‐ TV Equals

70% Preacher: Season 2 - Holes (TV Episode) Holes featured a solid amount of character development of our favorite vampire.‐ TV Equals

100% Preacher: Season 2 - Pig (TV Episode) t's a kick to see Starr brought to life in such wonderful terms as we got in episode 3, "Pig."‐ TV Equals

100% Orphan Black: Season 5 - To Right the Wrongs of Many (TV Episode) Thank you, John Fawcett (who also directed the finale) and Graeme Manson and all of the other writers who developed the show, and in particular, Tatiana Maslany, who, more than anyone else, helped bring it to life in such a spectacular fashion. ‐ TV Equals

60% Midnight, Texas: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Midnight, Texas is passable entertainment, and if your options are limited for one reason or another, then you could do a lot worse. I don't expect it to be a break-out hit or anything, but it'll do for summer, I suppose.‐ TV Equals

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 8 (TV Episode) It's at this point that things go way off the rails, in the most excellent way imaginable.‐ TV Equals

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 9 (TV Episode) As we cross firmly into the halfway mark of the 18-episode season, we get our first episode that, for me, at least, legitimately felt like an old-school episode of the show.‐ TV Equals

93% Orphan Black: Season 5 (TV, 2017) While certain characters' motivations remain sketchy at times, as does their behavior... the show is nonetheless off to a good start, and keeping things moving at a decent pace overall.‐ TV Equals

90% Preacher: Season 2 (TV, 2017) I'm definitely looking forward to what the show has in store for us this season, and though I will miss some of the characters from the first season, it's nice to be headed more firmly into comics territory.‐ TV Equals

60% The Mist: Season 1 (TV, 2017) So far, the good definitely outweighs the bad, in my book.‐ TV Equals

74% Fargo: Season 3 - Somebody to Love (TV Episode) I just needed a little more shock and awe, as it were, instead of "okay, then" and meh. You know what I mean?‐ TV Equals

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 6 (TV Episode) The disparate pieces of the puzzle have come together one by one, and a clearer picture of what is going on is starting to form‐ TV Equals

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 7 (TV Episode) Maybe Lynch is trolling people somewhat. But so what? He's been doing it for ages- why stop now?‐ TV Equals

No Score Yet The Originals: Season 4 (TV, 2017) This wasn't a bad run of episodes, even if the show fell back on some of the old tropes of the genre.‐ TV Equals

91% Orphan Black: Season 5 - The Few Who Dare (TV Episode) All in all, a solid premiere that sets up what should be a colorful final season.‐ TV Equals

93% The Americans: Season 5 - The Soviet Division (TV Episode) THIS is what the spy life is really like, the show seemed to say- monotony and a non-stop grind, occasionally punctuated by a burst of Technicolored violence‐ TV Equals

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 1 (TV Episode) Just as creepy as it sounds.‐ TV Equals

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 3 (TV Episode) Episode 3 of Twin Peaks is weird, even by Lynch's standards. It approaches the level of surrealism of Lynch's first feature, Eraserhead, and, as such, is hard to describe.‐ TV Equals

94% American Gods: Season 1 (TV, 2017) I'm loving this so far, and can't wait to see more. ‐ TV Equals

94% Fargo: Season 3 (TV, 2017) All in all, a fine start to the season so far, with plenty of surprises to come, no doubt, if past seasons are any indication.‐ TV Equals

95% The Americans: Season 5 (TV, 2017) As per usual, the current season of "The Americans" is off to a magnificent start.‐ TV Equals

77% DC's Legends of Tomorrow: Season 2 (TV, 2016-2017) The first two episodes of the new year of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" have both been a lot of fun, even if the two respective groups have often been at odds with one another throughout. Not that it's necessarily a bad thing, mind you.‐ TV Equals

93% Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 4 (TV, 2016-2017) If anything, as far as I'm concerned, the show is back on track overall, after a slightly off-kilter first half of the season, marred by splitting up the team too much for too long and an overtly dour tone.‐ TV Equals

100% The Vampire Diaries: Season 8 (TV, 2016-2017) All told, it should make for an interesting run of final episodes. ‐ TV Equals

94% Westworld: Season 1 - The Bicameral Mind (TV Episode) I really and truly enjoyed the ride, warts and all. Sure, there were plot holes, but also plenty of wiggle room... Remember, we only saw what the writers wanted us to see. Who knows what other secrets lurk elsewhere? Can't wait to find out in Season Two!‐ TV Equals

56% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 10 (TV Episode) I may not have hated it, and it certainly had its moments, but overall, it was just so-so.‐ TV Equals

60% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 8 (TV Episode) This was a quick-moving episode, and if not quite as satisfying as the last one, at least it was never boring. I also like that they are still bringing in new people, as it provides more fodder for the ghosts and Polks and what have you. ‐ TV Equals

92% Westworld: Season 1 - Contrapasso (TV Episode) Hopkins and Harris are rock solid as always, but Simpson and Barnes are also doing good work with their respective roles, exploring both the light and dark sides of what Westworld has to offer.‐ TV Equals

100% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 7 (TV Episode) I will say that the show's saving grace this season lies in two things: its sense of humor, and the admittedly impressive and amusingly gratuitous amount of gore. ‐ TV Equals

92% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 6 (TV Episode) It was [the] sort of "Reality TV" wrangling that gave the episode its best moments‐ TV Equals

No Score Yet Elementary: Season 5 (TV, 2016-2017) After several complicated seasons, the show seems to have streamlined things considerably this season, perhaps responding to some peoples' frustrations with how complex things had gotten in recent years. ‐ TV Equals
