92% The Crown: Season 2 (TV, 2017) I'm assuming that creator Peter Morgan meant for it to be comedy. There's really no other explanation for why Jeremy Northam played Prime Minister Anthony Eden like he's having a nervous breakdown in every scene.‐ TheWrap

88% Dark: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The time travel conceit does more than give us a window into how these families have evolved over many decades - it's brings a whole new meaning to "things are not quite what they seem here."‐ TheWrap

33% The Walking Dead: Season 8 - The King, the Widow, and Rick (TV Episode) If there's one thing that watching the opening to Season 8, episode 6 of The Walking Dead drove home to me, it's that this entire season so far has taken place in a pretty compressed time frame.‐ TheWrap

91% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Nineteen: Death Proof (TV Episode) The real fun part of this is that now we have to consider the possibility that there are two psychos calling themselves the Black Hood out there who each have totally different motivations. It really complicates this investigation!‐ TheWrap

100% Marco Polo: Season 2 (TV, 2016) It's all just a matter of perspective who your hero is. "Marco Polo" knows it, and that's why season 2 works so well.‐ TheWrap

61% Marvel's The Punisher: Season 1 (TV, 2017) Like all good noir stories, The Punisher can be very dense at times, but in a surprising twist for a Marvel show it does all come together in a way that makes sense.‐ TheWrap

88% The Walking Dead: Season 8 - Some Guy (TV Episode) Finally, an Ezekiel-centric episode. Unfortunately, it's all about him struggling to deal with most of his friends being killed.‐ TheWrap

92% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Eighteen: When a Stranger Calls (TV Episode) When a Stranger Calls is the best of the series so far. It's full of pain and misery, all earned rather than just being cheap, thanks to a pair of plotlines that feel all too familiar.‐ TheWrap

No Score Yet Designated Survivor: Season 2 (TV, 2017) It's the most topical show going. It's real. Though it may be too real at this point.‐ TheWrap

87% Riverdale: Season 2 (TV, 2017) This show is as good as TV melodrama gets, achieves maximum bang for it buck in delivering that melodrama without betraying the characters, and also it looks great. Riverdale is no joke.‐ TheWrap

100% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Sixteen: The Watcher in the Woods (TV Episode) To recap: the letter is either sincere or insincere, and either someone else is pulling his strings or he's acting alone.‐ TheWrap

86% Riverdale: Season 2 - Chapter Fifteen: Nighthawks (TV Episode) I wouldn't think the homage should be taken literally. Which is to say I don't think the Zodiac Killer is a character on Riverdale. But it is an apt reference to make in a different way: this event essentially marks whoever this guy is as a serial killer.‐ TheWrap

69% The Walking Dead: Season 8 (TV, 2017) The AMC blockbuster has given viewers a welcome respite from getting kicked in the teeth, and that's made it much more enjoyable.‐ TheWrap

94% Stranger Things: Season 2 (TV, 2017) With a tighter focus 'Stranger Things' season 2 could have been great - as it stands, we'll have to settle for almost great, and hope the Duffers are planning to make those apparently divergent threads make sense in season 3.‐ TheWrap

100% Game of Thrones: Season 6 - The Door (TV Episode) This season of Game of Thrones is moving at a crazy fast clip, and we're all in mourning right now. But in the bigger picture, we got what might be the biggest reveal we've ever seen on the show.‐ TheWrap
