95% The Returned: Season 2 (TV, 2015) The thing about this show is that the mystery is so existential and ever-present that the feeling of "not knowing" becomes pure atmosphere. And that's appealing.‐ TV.com

100% Burn Notice: Season 6 (TV, 2012) Weepy Westen may have a killer's tiny heart, but inside that heart is an even tinier... lover's heart, and you just know when there's emotion involved some serious butt-kicking is afoot. It's a strong conflict to imbue in a character‐ TV.com

63% American Horror Story: Hotel - Be Our Guest (TV Episode) Huh. So on the one hand, it was nice to say a proper goodbye to the gals, guys, and ghouls of the Cortez in this week's American Horror Story: Hotel season finale, but on the other hand, the episode was kind of low stakes? ‐ TV.com

82% American Horror Story: Hotel - Battle Royale (TV Episode) As there's only one episode left, the disparate story threads are getting pulled nice and tight like a dope-fiend with a spool of thread and abandonment issues.‐ TV.com

64% American Horror Story: Hotel - She Wants Revenge (TV Episode) The plot that had me crying for real though was Ramona Royale's explanation of her whereabouts for the past 20 years... I already loved Ramona Royale, but that kind of vulnerable gesture-by an immortal no less-spoke volumes of her character. ‐ TV.com

36% American Horror Story: Hotel - The Ten Commandments Killer (TV Episode) The show basically dumped a sleeping bag full of breadcrumbs leading to [its] revelation. Which worked out okay I'd say.‐ TV.com

100% American Horror Story: Hotel - Flicker (TV Episode) I'm loving all these angles we're getting on the Countess. She's doing some pretty horrible things, but she's had some pretty terrible things done to her as well. ‐ TV.com

86% American Horror Story: Hotel - Devil's Night (TV Episode) When American Horror Story wants to be funny, it can be downright hilarious and I for one was tickled pink as brain matter to spend the evening with the likes of Aileen Wuornos, John Wayne Gacy, and a gaggle of other human predators.‐ TV.com

87% American Horror Story: Hotel - Mommy (TV Episode) The damned perform their given roles in this multi-leveled black-box theater. Whether the guests here be tragic ghosts, doomed visitors, or predatory immortals, I'm glad every time the lights go down and this cast takes the stage.‐ TV.com

83% American Horror Story: Hotel - Chutes and Ladders (TV Episode) For The Countess and other characters driven by vital dependency in the enjoyable, yet stout "Chutes and Ladders," it was addiction that made a body feel more alive than others, while at the same time trapping the addict in a prison of pure need.‐ TV.com

71% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 2 - Shiva (TV Episode) As respectable as those improvements are, as solid as Fear now is, efforts like "Shiva" remind us that the show's growth spurt isn't over yet-and neither are its growing pains. ‐ TV.com

100% The Americans: Season 4 - Persona Non Grata (TV Episode) A well done downer, but still a downer nonetheless wrought with anxiety, slow gruesome deaths, and family turmoil. Lucky for us these things also happen to be the ingredients for a riveting hour of The Americans.‐ TV.com

100% The Americans: Season 4 - A Roy Rogers in Franconia (TV Episode) I think it's wise her story line is proceeding at such a cautious pace. Any faster would be unrealistic, though this hour sure saw Paige catapulted a little further into her parents' world than Elizabeth and Philip might like.‐ TV Guide

94% The Americans: Season 4 - Dinner for Seven (TV Episode) I have to hand it to The Americans, firstly for securing two final seasons, and secondly for delivering some rare, classic spy fun with just the right amount of existential focus in "Dinner for Seven." ‐ TV.com

100% The Americans: Season 4 - The Magic of David Copperfield V: The Statue of Liberty Disappears (TV Episode) I'd say this was a definitive turning point in the series, but nearly every episode this season has felt like a pivotal story segment of this tension-filled saga.‐ TV.com

100% The Americans: Season 4 - Clark's Place (TV Episode) What's great about this series, though, is how it depicts normal-looking citizens like Philip and Elizabeth actually fighting a hidden war and taking on all the physical and emotional trauma that comes with battle. ‐ TV.com

100% The Americans: Season 4 - Chloramphenicol (TV Episode) Leave it to The Americans to include one of the series' happiest moments in the same dang episode containing one of the saddest. Dry your eyes, viewers of tonight's damn fine "Chloramphenicol."‐ TV.com

100% The Americans: Season 4 - Experimental Prototype City of Tomorrow (TV Episode) A show about Cold War secrets ruining a suburban family doesn't necessarily lend itself to tons of humor, but this week's episode of The Americans got in some welcome laughs. ‐ TV.com

100% The Americans: Season 4 - Glanders (TV Episode) Though I wouldn't have minded a kicking '80s song beneath a boss montage, "Glanders" delivered a sure-footed return to the world of Cold War espionage.‐ TV.com

100% The Americans: Season 3 (TV, 2015) My mind was so geared up for technical plot answers to last season's dangling threads that I was blindsided by the basic pleasant feelings that came along with our reentry into the The Americans' world. ‐ TV.com
