4.5/5.0 100% Vikings: Season 6 (TV, 2013) What seems evident after the first two episodes of Vikings Season 6 is that the series is starting to wrap up organically, unlike that show with dragons that fizzled out in its final season. - TV Fanatic EDIT

3.75/5 89% The Walking Dead: Season 10 - The World Before (TV Episode) In some respects, it worked.

2.75/5 40% Shameless: Season 10 (TV, 2011) After screening the first three episodes, it's clear that Shameless is a shell of its former self. Most of the storylines have been done before, and some of the characters have become excruciating to watch. - TV Fanatic EDIT

5/5 95% The Walking Dead: Season 10 - Open Your Eyes (TV Episode) It's rare for a decade-old show to be delivering such a level of quality, but the paranoia surrounding the Whisperers has helped elevate the angst to give us a cold war-esque vibe. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4/5 89% The Walking Dead: Season 10 - What It Always Is (TV Episode) It's nice that the show is bringing some realism back into the narrative because post-apocalyptic shows, in general, tend to forget that people don't just die because of the apocalypse. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.5/5 94% The Walking Dead: Season 10 - Silence the Whisperers (TV Episode) "Silence the Whisperers" was another solid episode... The show is showing no signs of slowing down, and that's a good thing. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.5/5 100% Mr. Robot: Season 4 - 403 Forbidden (TV Episode) A full hour about the origins of Whiterose would have been worthwhile. At the top of Mr. Robot Season 4 Episode 3, it seemed like that's what we were getting, but this show loves to play with expectations. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.25/5.0 92% Looking for Alaska: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Hulu's Looking for Alaska is a coming of age story done right. Yes, it's filled with the melodrama you would expect from a teen drama, but it delivers a solid plot about a group of younger people trying to find themselves in the world. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.0/5.0 44% Treadstone: Season 1 (TV, 2019) The biggest positive about Treadstone is that it doesn't play out like a TV show. With the intense fight scenes, exhilarating chase sequences, and everything else, it felt like I was watching a big-budget movie. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.25/5 89% The Walking Dead: Season 10 - We Are the End of the World (TV Episode) The Walking Dead Season 10 Episode 2 took viewers on a trip to the past to reveal the origins of Alpha and Beta, and while these flashback-heavy installments are generally not that great, "We Are the End of the World" was a valiant effort. - TV Fanatic EDIT

5/5 100% Mr. Robot: Season 4 - 402 Payment Required (TV Episode) There are so many unanswered questions right now, but Mr. Robot Season 4 is firing from all cylinders. Any episode that has Whiterose tearing down the Christmas tree he just decorated in a fit of rage is a success in my book. - TV Fanatic EDIT

3.0/5.0 No Score Yet Legacies: Season 2 (TV, 2018) "I'll Never Give Up Hope" was the worst episode of the series. For a show that had so much going for it last season, I hoped the premiere would expand the mythology in a way that would make it worthwhile. - TV Fanatic EDIT

2.5/5.0 82% Raising Dion: Season 1 (TV, 2019) In essence, the series feels like two different shows that are being forced to go hand in hand, and it all feels a little jarring. - TV Fanatic EDIT

2/5 23% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 5 - End of the Line (TV Episode) "End of the Line" was not the worst episode of the series, but it was another throwaway one. All that's left to do is hope that a miracle happens between seasons to course correct, but that's probably asking for too much at this stage. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.0/5.0 No Score Yet Empire: Season 6 (TV, 2015) Empire was filled with the show's signature OMG moments from start to finish, and it was a successful way to set up the final season of this FOX drama. - TV Fanatic EDIT

3.75/5.0 56% All Rise: Season 1 (TV, 2019) For a series premiere, All Rise ticks all the boxes. It introduces the characters and conflicts very well, backed up with some solid acting, and witty dialogue. - TV Fanatic EDIT

1/5 17% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 5 - Channel 5 (TV Episode) If the hour was supposed to raise the stakes, it didn't. It was a frustrating watch that felt like a terrible remake of the original Cloverfield movie. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.5/5.0 98% Unbelievable: Season 1 (TV, 2019) There are several twists and turns throughout all eight episodes, but the series is cleverly plotted with just the right amount of reveals per episode to keep viewers tuned into the whole thing. - TV Fanatic EDIT

3.5/5 93% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 5 - Leave What You Don't (TV Episode) Expanding the world has kept the original series thriving, so it was about time Fear branched out a little more to introduce someone of this caliber. - TV Fanatic EDIT

2.5/5 85% Titans: Season 2 (TV, 2018) Titans Season 2 is not the season premiere the fans deserved. It felt like more of an epilogue of Titans Season 1 than a jumping-off point for Titans Season 2. - TV Fanatic EDIT

2/5 36% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 5 - Ner Tamid (TV Episode) Not a lot happened on "Ner Tamid." There was needless drama that had very little significance to the overall arc, and the episode ended just when things got interesting. - TV Fanatic EDIT

4.5/5 46% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 5 - You're Still Here (TV Episode) ["You're Still Here"] was a real diamond in the rough, and it was all thanks to Wes. It's rare for a new character to have such an impact off the bat. - TV Fanatic EDIT
