95% The Walking Dead: Season 9 - The Bridge (TV Episode) Is The Walking Dead back? I'm not sure I would go that far. It definitely seems to have improved with new leadership. The direction remains solid, and the acting and writing seem to be more consistent thus far. ‐ Den of Geek

100% American Horror Story: Apocalypse - Boy Wonder (TV Episode) The dialog pushes through a lot of exposition, but it's done efficiently and in an entertaining fashion. Certainly, there's more gender politics involved this week, but it works.‐ Den of Geek

4.5/5 100% American Horror Story: Apocalypse - Forbidden Fruit (TV Episode) From the cold opening to the surprise at the end, "Forbidden Fruit" is one of the most impressive editorial feats of the entire series, let alone this season.‐ Den of Geek

3.5/5 88% American Horror Story: Apocalypse - The Morning After (TV Episode) "The Morning After" is a satisfying enough episode that lacks the initial hook of the first episode, but adds plenty of weirdness into the snake stew.‐ Den of Geek

90% American Horror Story: Apocalypse - The End (TV Episode) In the hands of long-time AHS director Bradley Buecker, the opening segment is one of the most horrifying things on broadcast television due to just how uncomfortably plausible it all is. ‐ Den of Geek

45% The Purge: Season 1 (TV, 2018) It feels like The Purge, without any adulteration to fit basic cable. If you're in on The Purge, as I am, then The Purge TV show is a satisfying expansion of that universe.‐ Den of Geek

63% The Walking Dead: Season 8 - How It's Gotta Be (TV Episode) It's difficult to tell a story when it's difficult to see just what is going on. Not helping the confusion is the fact that How It's Gotta Be jumps between any one of two dozen characters at any point.‐ Den of Geek

91% Teen Wolf: Season 5 (TV, 2015-2016) I would love to see a more focused Teen Wolf next season, but I'm fairly sure that won't be happen. So long as the show remains reliably crazy, then I'm all for it.‐ Den of Geek

88% Teen Wolf: Season 3 (TV, 2013-2014) You'd think that, by now, Teen Wolf would have run out of ways to use sword-fighting Japanese demons, but they seem to have an infinite capacity to use said demons to terrorize the relatively innocent people of Beacon Hills.‐ Den of Geek

90% Teen Wolf: Season 2 (TV, 2012) Unlike a lot of television shows, there wasn't a lot of stuff that didn't work this week, and the show leaves the air temporarily on a high note.‐ Den of Geek

83% American Gods: Season 1 - Come to Jesus (TV Episode) Kristin Chenoweth is just a little ray of sunshine, but like the sun, she can warm, and she can burn. She's a gifted comic actress, and she's a Broadway star for a reason. She's magnetic.‐ Den of Geek

88% American Horror Story: Asylum - Madness Ends (TV Episode) Fortunately for the programme, it goes out with a real bang that resolves the entirety of the meaningful story lines, from Bloody Face Jr. and Lana to the final fates of Kit, the kids, Sister Jude, Monsignor Timothy, and the rest of the AHS gang. ‐ Den of Geek

88% American Horror Story: Asylum - Spilt Milk (TV Episode) [It nods] to Candyman (the music was repeated pretty often this week to great effect) and the work of Fake Hitchcock himself, Brian De Palma. I always enjoy when the show gets referential, especially musically, and this week was definitely a treat. ‐ Den of Geek

100% American Horror Story: Asylum - The Name Game (TV Episode) This show has nothing but good actors on it, and the worst aspects of some of the performers (accent work, mostly) can be overshadowed by more powerful visual signals.‐ Den of Geek

91% American Horror Story: Asylum - The Origins of Monstrosity (TV Episode) Even in a good, but not great, episode of American Horror Story, there's some interesting content to be mined, and some clever plot machinations at work.‐ Den of Geek

80% American Horror Story: Murder House - Spooky Little Girl (TV Episode) American Horror Story is one of the weirdest, most wonderful shows on television. It's not going to make you smarter, but you'll have a great time being dumb right alongside the Harmons.‐ Den of Geek

57% American Horror Story: Murder House - Home Invasion (TV Episode) There's a lot of style with AHS, both visually and aurally, and I think that they've been able to match the style with substance: great cast, great acting, interesting scripts, and a lot of potential down the road.‐ Den of Geek

75% American Horror Story: Murder House - Pilot (TV Episode) American Horror Story won't be for everyone, but it just might be for me. The premiere episode was so densely packed with stuff that I can't wait for them to start unpacking it.‐ Den of Geek
