100% Big Little Lies: Season 1 - You Get What You Need (TV Episode) It's too messy to be a mega-happy ending, and a super-dark ending would have been mean to the audience. You can't always get what you want.‐ New York Observer

89% Big Little Lies: Season 1 - Push Comes to Shove (TV Episode) I'm starting to think that you could add a scene of a beautiful woman looking intensely at the ocean as Motown music swells to anything and make it feel more dramatic than it is, but big things are coming soon.‐ New York Observer

100% Big Little Lies: Season 1 - Once Bitten (TV Episode) One thing this show taps into that I think is super-interesting is the idea that intelligent people can often end up in abusive situations- if you have the kind of mind that Celeste has, you can use it to justify anything.‐ New York Observer

100% Big Little Lies: Season 1 - Burning Love (TV Episode) Doe-eyed, hoodie-enshrouded Jane turning into a stone cold potential killer is a great turn.‐ New York Observer

100% Big Little Lies: Season 1 - Somebody's Dead (TV Episode) The episode is graceful and kind of hypnotic, and its moments that seem to function in service of over-explanation or sentimentality inevitably end up subverted.‐ New York Observer

100% Big Little Lies: Season 1 - Serious Mothering (TV Episode) I think the story of Big Little Lies adds up to something larger than its individual parts.‐ New York Observer

90% Big Little Lies: Season 1 - Living the Dream (TV Episode) This episode is kind of a snooze compared to the first two- nothing new is introduced, it's just more developments of the plot elements we already know. ‐ New York Observer

89% Legion: Season 1 - Chapter 8 (TV Episode) The bad news is that this true self does feature a great deal of mugging from David, who sucks. The good news is everything else. ‐ New York Observer

88% Legion: Season 1 - Chapter 7 (TV Episode) The exposition parts don't really explain much you couldn't have guessed from the previous episode and reading an article on Nerdist or something, and a lot of the rest is just incredibly abstract.‐ New York Observer

69% Legion: Season 1 - Chapter 6 (TV Episode) None of either reality can be any one person's delusion, though, I don't think, because we see too many individual storylines where characters are apart from each other.‐ New York Observer

100% Legion: Season 1 - Chapter 5 (TV Episode) After what I- and apparently not that many other people- would consider a rocky start, Legion has figured out a great dynamic between a group of characters.‐ New York Observer

100% Legion: Season 1 - Chapter 4 (TV Episode) The show's habit of constantly revealing aspects of its own reality to be false is less interesting and more exasperating than it thinks, but I am invested in the idea of taking a character seemingly worth rooting for.‐ New York Observer

100% Legion: Season 1 - Chapter 3 (TV Episode) I think this has been my favorite episode so far: it's scary and exciting once you chill out and accept that they're not going to try to rescue Amy at any point.‐ New York Observer

89% Legion: Season 1 - Chapter 2 (TV Episode) It has a subtly detailed and referential pop-art aesthetic. Which is what makes the moments where it falters, including every time Stevens talks or looks at something, all the more embarrassing and confounding.‐ New York Observer

89% Legion: Season 1 - Chapter 1 (TV Episode) Stevens is just awful, and the story overall is pretentious and falls short of the depth that Hawley and the X-Men franchise have previously proven themselves capable of. ‐ New York Observer

79% The Exorcist: Season 1 (TV, 2016) The good news is that the pilot for the new Fox television adaptation of the show has some good moments in terms of acting and cinematography, and it's very, very scary. The bad news is it's clunky and unintentionally campy at times.‐ New York Observer
