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

70% 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

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

58% 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

94% 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

61% The Mist: Season 1 (TV, 2017) So far, the good definitely outweighs the bad, in my book.‐ TV Equals

72% 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 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

93% 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

96% 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

92% 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

91% 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

87% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 5 (TV Episode) As much as everyone was anticipating the return of Peters, let's take a moment to acknowledge the real MVP here...Doris Kearns Goodwin?‐ TV Equals

90% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 4 (TV Episode) It does seem that the one that has the first five episodes reflecting elements of each previous season has already more or less come to pass, what with the mention of the Mott family in this episode. ‐ TV Equals

92% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 3 (TV Episode) I must admit, this has been fun, trying to figure out where all this is going, and if the idea was to keep people guessing and engaged, then in that case, Murphy and company have already succeeded. ‐ TV Equals

64% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 2 (TV Episode) This was another decent enough episode, albeit with some dubious moves made by all concerned. ‐ TV Equals

81% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 1 (TV Episode) So, was it worth the wait?... Hard to say just yet, but color my interest piqued- for now. We'll just have to wait and see where it goes from here before I make any serious judgment calls. Until then, it was okay, I suppose. Not great, but okay.‐ TV Equals

83% Scream Queens: Season 2 (TV, 2016) Though Scream Again took a hot minute to get going, once it did, it was entertaining enough.‐ TV Equals

100% Elementary: Season 4 (TV, 2015-2016) A solid enough premiere that was well-worth the wait, not in the least because the show didn't pull any punches, for the most part. ‐ TV Equals

100% Westworld: Season 1 - The Original (TV Episode) Might this be HBO's heir apparent to the Game of Thrones, um, throne? Could be. Either way, I'm in for the season, that's for sure. ‐ TV Equals

67% American Horror Story: Coven - The Seven Wonders (TV Episode) In many ways, this episode drove home the real underlying theme, which was a retelling of the Christ story, with witches. ‐ TV Equals

85% American Horror Story: Coven - Protect the Coven (TV Episode) I'm glad they took a deep breath before the big battle that is now inevitable. Of course, that's a relative term for this show. ‐ TV Equals

83% American Horror Story: Coven - The Magical Delights of Stevie Nicks (TV Episode) Those of us who worried that they might tone things down in the presence of such a superstar need not have, because even by this show's standards this was pretty out there stuff.‐ TV Equals

87% American Horror Story: Coven - The Sacred Taking (TV Episode) Transitional or not, this episode zipped by like nobody's business, thanks to a taut script by co-creator Ryan Murphy, and the typically stylish direction from series regular Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.‐ TV Equals
