5/5 100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Thirty-One: A Night to Remember (TV Episode) My biggest complaint about this episode is that Riverdale didn't just shoot an entire continuous production of Carrie for me to watch, because the glimpses we do get are so enjoyable.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 75% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Nine: Primary Colors (TV Episode) This feels more like a surreal Bravo-CW crossover dream I'd have after eating dark-chocolate Flipz too close to bedtime than an actual scene of television, which I mean as a sincere compliment.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Eight: There Will Be Blood (TV Episode) But the way the Lodges have so sinisterly described their master plan, I was prepared to believe they were finalizing the blueprints for a Soylent Green processing plant, not an actual institution that could and does exist in America today.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 78% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Seven: The Hills Have Eyes (TV Episode) Please, Riverdale, give us Choni, or Blopaz, or whatever the good people of Tumblr have no doubt already started to call them. This is the 'ship America needs now.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 89% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Twenty-Six: The Tell-Tale Heart (TV Episode) There's nothing like an active crime scene to bring a family together. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

C+ No Score Yet The Sinner: Season 1 - Part II (TV Episode) If the Twinkie defense worked for Dan White, maybe the slicing-a-pear ennui defense could work for Cora.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B No Score Yet The Sinner: Season 1 - Part IV (TV Episode) With flashbacks layered inside flashbacks... it's hard to imagine that whatever the truth about Cora Tannetti's past turns out to be will justify the convoluted path we've taken to learn it.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B+ No Score Yet The Sinner: Season 1 - Part V (TV Episode) I have to give The Sinner credit this week.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B No Score Yet The Sinner: Season 1 - Part VI (TV Episode) With only two episodes left, The Sinner... is dialing the weirdness up to 11. Don't say I didn't warn you.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B- 94% The Sinner: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Cora's is a peaceful, predictable existence, if a suffocating one: It's like Everybody Loves Raymond moved to upstate New York - minus the jokes, plus what seems like serious, untreated depression on its protagonist's part. ‐ Entertainment Weekly

B No Score Yet The Sinner: Season 1 - Part III (TV Episode) If this is any indication that The Sinner is about to get extremely weird, I will be utterly delighted.‐ Entertainment Weekly

B- No Score Yet The Sinner: Season 1 - Part I (TV Episode) ... this needlessly dark and moody limited series from USA - not a whodunit but a whydunit - is off to a less-than-thrilling start.‐ Entertainment Weekly

3/5 87% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Fifteen: Nighthawks (TV Episode) The youthful sexiness of Riverdale's main ensemble rightly gets a lot of attention, but I don't want us to overlook the veritable Justice League of Hot Dads that the show has managed to assemble.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 88% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Fourteen: A Kiss Before Dying (TV Episode) The hospital's doctors and nurses are all wearing stylized period costumes that, while fitting for Riverdale's out-of-time vibe, lead me to worry whether their commitment to an ~aesthetic~ means they've also overlooked modern medical tech. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

100% Feud: Bette and Joan - Abandoned (TV Episode) Joan Crawford's first day on the Charlotte set starts off promisingly, with the actress nailing her character's introduction in one take. But by nightfall, she's grumbling over the sounds of revelry spilling out from Bette's hotel room.‐ Refinery29

82% Feud: Bette and Joan - Hagsploitation (TV Episode) In what will probably be one of the most enduring images from this season of Feud, Joan - glittering with diamonds in a blood-red gown and elbow-length gloves - bursts into the theater from the rear, feebly brandishing an axe.‐ Refinery29

100% Feud: Bette and Joan - Mommie Dearest (TV Episode) On this week's Feud, the battle isn't just between Bette and Joan. It's between mothers and daughters more generally-with a special emphasis on daughters who have become mothers, but are still very much in need of parenting themselves.‐ Refinery29
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2017
73% Feud: Bette and Joan - The Other Woman (TV Episode) As a general rule, the score for Feud is as over the top as literally everything else about this show, but the music that accompanies Joan's look of rage here would be a little much for even the shlockiest horror film. This is not to say I dislike it.‐ Refinery29

92% Feud: Bette and Joan - Pilot (TV Episode) [Bette's Baby Jane] is show-stoppingly weird. (I will say this: Accurate as it is, Sarandon's Baby Jane nevertheless looks about three times as polished and pretty as the original.) ‐ Refinery29

3/5 100% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Eleven: To Riverdale and Back Again (TV Episode) The Riverdale High homecoming dance is approaching, and did I mention that this particular homecoming dance also happens to be a reunion for alumni of all ages, because sure, why not?‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 91% Riverdale: Season 1 - Chapter Six: Faster, Pussycats! Kill! Kill! (TV Episode) I would like to start by saying that Alice Cooper has earned my respect and affection by being the only person on Riverdale to inflect the extremely implausible nickname "Jughead" with the derision it deserves.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
