3/5 100% Billions: Season 3 - Elmsley Count (TV Episode) I'll be honest: This was a real mixed bag for me! It's a good episode (they're all good episodes!) but as big Billions reveals go, "Elmsley Count" lacked the enjoyable punch.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 86% Billions: Season 3 - Kompenso (TV Episode) I shouldn't have doubted, because Billions just geared up with a roar for these last few episodes of the season. I'm impressed, I'm happy; let's get into it.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 83% Billions: Season 3 - All the Wilburys (TV Episode) Ideally, we really did need two episodes to correctly accommodate all the necessary shenanigans and false flags and power moves that went down. It was too much.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% Billions: Season 3 - Hell of a Ride (TV Episode) This episode is the Charles and Chuck fathers-and-sons tour de force we've been waiting for. It's done a LOT less hackily than these arcs often are.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% Billions: Season 3 - Tie Goes to the Runner (TV Episode) If you are actually bringing in the big bucks for your team, people will find a way to like you. Billions does a good job demonstrating that shift in how people see Taylor.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 75% Billions: Season 3 - Not You, Mr. Dake (TV Episode) For an episode that really screws up some innocent lives, it has a delightfully gonzo-heist vibe, which could have felt dismissive but actually adds a queasy note that elevates the whole thing.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% Billions: Season 3 - Flaw in the Death Star (TV Episode) What a gift. What a treasure. This one was going straight out to the fans, and I loved every minute of it. I barely know where to start.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 93% Billions: Season 3 (TV, 2018) Compliance while the female employees look at him disgustedly. Strange bedfellows, indeed! Can't wait to see where we're headed.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 67% Outlander: Season 3 - Eye of the Storm (TV Episode) Ughhhhhhh. Even for a show which is resolutely Too Much, this finale really pushes us to our limits, with extremely mixed results.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 83% Outlander: Season 3 - The Bakra (TV Episode) Oh my God, so much happens in this episode! Things are B-A-N-A-N-A-S. You can tell because I put on closed-captioning in order not to miss dialogue.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 85% Outlander: Season 3 - Uncharted (TV Episode) The show has figured out that what it does best is sexy reunions following periods of separation. It sometimes feels like the writers must sit around, coming up with reasons that Claire and Jamie will have to spend three days apart.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 77% Outlander: Season 3 - Heaven and Earth (TV Episode) Since Claire can't contract typhoid and Jamie is safely on the Artemis, the show is at a bit of a loss as to how to make the epidemic seem real and emotionally significant.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 85% Outlander: Season 3 - The Doldrums (TV Episode) I have decided to have literally zero sympathy for Claire's "I'm not sure if we belong together" hot takes. You have literally been drawn to each other VIA MAGIC across CENTURIES. You need to just accept it and work on your trust issues, girl.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% Poldark: Season 3 (TV, 2017) I'll be honest: This was a fairly bloated start to the season, which is what happens when you jam two episodes into one and need to kick off all your story lines at once, but now we are ready for everything that they can throw at us.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 77% Outlander: Season 3 - First Wife (TV Episode) Was I excited to see the big reveal? You bet your ass I was! They REALLY made us wait for it.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 85% Outlander: Season 3 - Creme De Menthe (TV Episode) It seems this will be a smuggling-heavy episode, which, whatever, we got ours last week, you know? I'm prepared to tolerate anything.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 93% Outlander: Season 3 - A. Malcolm (TV Episode) This is the best kiss in the history of anything, no one will be disappointed in this kiss. He's crying, she's crying, it's amazing.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% Outlander: Season 3 - Of Lost Things (TV Episode) I am VERY pleased to announce that we are now in Scotland circa 1968, because that means we're with Claire as well as Brianna and Roger, both of whom finally believe her whole deal.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 93% Outlander: Season 3 - All Debts Paid (TV Episode) People have lost hands, had babies, gone to prison, started AND finished Harvard Medical School, but there's still a bit of a suspended-animation vibe.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% Outlander: Season 3 - Surrender (TV Episode) We sure could use Claire right about now!‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 93% Outlander: Season 3 - The Battle Joined (TV Episode) This episode is a stone-cold bummer. There is no making out of any kind. It's also heavy on plot explication, which is actually quite forgivable in a season premiere, especially for a show trying to keep as many balls in the air as this one.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
