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!"

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."

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. "

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."

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. "

American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 6 (TV Episode)

"It was [the] sort of "Reality TV" wrangling that gave the episode its best moments"

Elementary: Season 5 (TV, 2016)

"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. "

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?"

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. "
Posted Oct 10, 2016

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. "
Posted Oct 6, 2016

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. "
Posted Sep 29, 2016

Elementary: Season 4 (TV, 2015)

"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. "
Posted Sep 27, 2016

American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 2 (TV Episode)

"This was another decent enough episode, albeit with some dubious moves made by all concerned. "
Posted Sep 22, 2016

Scream Queens: Season 2 (TV, 2016)

"Though Scream Again took a hot minute to get going, once it did, it was entertaining enough."
Posted Sep 21, 2016

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."

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. "
Posted Jul 12, 2016

American Horror Story: Coven - Go to Hell (TV Episode)

"Television doesn't get much better than this, folks."
Posted Jul 12, 2016

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. "
Posted Jul 12, 2016

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."
Posted Jul 12, 2016

American Horror Story: Coven - Head (TV Episode)

"As ever, some great dialogue throughout."
Posted Jul 12, 2016

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."
Posted Jul 12, 2016

American Horror Story: Coven - The Dead (TV Episode)

"I gotta hand it to American Horror Story: Coven -- it really knows how to keep viewers guessing."
Posted Jul 12, 2016

American Horror Story: Coven - The Axeman Cometh (TV Episode)

"The addition of the Axeman worked well, and I especially liked that he immediately went after Fiona, rather than going after the other witches."
Posted Jul 12, 2016

American Horror Story: Coven - Burn, Witch. Burn! (TV Episode)

"All in all, a pretty excellent episode, if a bit nutty. But hey, it wouldn't be American Horror Story if it didn't go off the rails every now and again. Great stuff. This may well end up being my favorite season yet."
Posted Jul 12, 2016

American Horror Story: Coven - Fearful Pranks Ensue (TV Episode)

"A pretty decent episode all around. Looking forward to seeing what kind of damage the zombies do, and whether or not Myrtle gets the burned-at-the-stake treatment."
Posted Jul 12, 2016

American Horror Story: Coven - The Replacements (TV Episode)

"This was a real button-pushing episode. Between whacking Nancy Drew and all the incest and bestiality, you have to wonder if Standards and Practices was asleep on the job for this one."
Posted Jul 12, 2016

American Horror Story: Coven - Boy Parts (TV Episode)

"In the latest episode of American Horror Story: Coven, I was happy to see that the show has continued its methodical pacing thus far."
Posted Jul 12, 2016

American Horror Story: Coven - Bitchcraft (TV Episode)

"It was a solid premiere, and I think the more straight-forward approach bodes well for what the season will hopefully turn out to be if they don't get overly ambitious."
Posted Jul 12, 2016

Dead of Summer: Season 1 (TV, 2016)

"While it remains to be seen whether the show gets better from here and there's definitely room for improvement- so good, so far."
Posted Jun 30, 2016

Zoo: Season 2 (TV, 2016)

"The fact that they make it as plausible as they do is a miracle as it is. I can live with the occasional discrepancy, so long as the show is entertaining, and this was."
Posted Jun 29, 2016

Thirteen: Season 1 (TV, 2016)

"Despite the well-worn premise, it's still intriguing enough to keep one wondering what will happen next and who's up to what, which is saying something. "
Posted Jun 24, 2016

American Gothic: Season 1 (TV, 2016)

"This is a fun little time-waster, with a solid enough cast and a nifty enough hook to keep one watching, at least for a relatively breezy self-contained thirteen episodes."

Pretty Little Liars: Season 7 (TV, 2016)

"If this does indeed prove to be the final season- rumors abound that there will be a movie, or at the very least, a spin-off of some sort- then it certainly started with a bang, if this episode was any indication."

Aquarius: Season 2 (TV, 2016)

"By showing us that things are slowly-but-surely headed towards their inevitable conclusion, it gives the viewer something to cling to, in knowing that yes, we'll get there soon enough if we're patient. "

Major Crimes: Season 5 (TV, 2016)

"All in all, it was a solid enough premiere, with a decent amount of set-up for the season to come, without getting too far into the sort of long-term storytelling that defined the latter half of last season."
Posted Jun 15, 2016

BrainDead: Season 1 (TV, 2016)

"This was a somewhat slight-but-fun show that's perfectly fine as summer viewing."
Posted Jun 14, 2016

The Americans: Season 4 - Persona Non Grata (TV Episode)

"As strong as Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys were, as usual, I also have to give it up to MVP Holly Taylor."
Posted Jun 10, 2016

Outcast: Season 1 (TV, 2016)

"Outcast takes on demonic possession in fairly riveting fashion, thanks to a no-holds-barred approach to its subject matter, and a decidedly unorthodox pair of exorcists, whose methods might be effective, but are a little controversial, to say the least. "
Posted Jun 5, 2016

Cleverman: Season 1 (TV, 2016)

"It's at the very least, a fairly interesting premise and just compelling enough to keep one watching, especially with the limited pickings during the summer months."
Posted Jun 3, 2016

The Americans: Season 4 - A Roy Rogers in Franconia (TV Episode)

"This was another solid episode of the show, this time unfortunately cutting things off just as they were really getting interesting, but then, that's to be expected, I suppose. After all, this is the lead-in to the finale. "

Scream: Season 2 (TV, 2016)

"All in all, a solid enough premiere, though a lot will depend on how this plays out over the season, obviously. "
Posted May 31, 2016

The Americans: Season 4 - Dinner for Seven (TV Episode)

"I will miss Young Hee- she brought out a side of Liz we all but never get to see- playful, relatable and even fun. Hopefully, that side of her won't die along with her alter ego, Patty."
Posted May 27, 2016

Gotham: Season 2 - Wrath of the Villains: Transference (TV Episode)

"As much as I enjoyed this season that much more than the first one, I really can't wait to see what Gotham has in store for us next. Hopefully, the next one will be even better- if not crazier. "
Posted May 24, 2016

The Americans: Season 4 - Munchkins (TV Episode)

"We got a firsthand look at how things can go well- and how they can go completely sideways at a moment's notice, no matter where one's loyalties lie."
Posted May 20, 2016

Gotham: Season 2 - Wrath of the Villains: A Legion of Horribles (TV Episode)

"All in all, a perfect set-up to a suitably bonkers finale, and I can't wait, personally."
Posted May 17, 2016

The Americans: Season 4 - The Day After (TV Episode)

"Another solid episode of the series, if not as tense by default as the last few, which is not necessarily a bad thing."
Posted May 12, 2016

Gotham: Season 2 - Wrath of the Villains: Unleashed (TV Episode)

"This was an entertaining enough episode, with some amusing quips and a great series of cliffhangers and a solid showdown with Azrael, but I do wish they'd used the character a little better and given him more to do before taking him out so soon."
Posted May 10, 2016

The Americans: Season 4 - The Magic of David Copperfield V: The Statue of Liberty Disappears (TV Episode)

"I thought the show did a great job in defying expectations while still delivering the goods dramatically, albeit in a more unexpected way."
Posted May 5, 2016

Gotham: Season 2 - Wrath of the Villains: Azrael (TV Episode)

"This was a decent enough episode, with some great sequences with Azrael and Strange only getting crazier and crazier by the minute."
Posted May 3, 2016

The Americans: Season 4 - Travel Agents (TV Episode)

"Simply put, The Americans is not playing around, save in terms of ratcheting up the suspense to near-unbearable levels."
