100% The Expanse: Season 3 (TV, 2015) In a lesser show, some of these developments might come off as cheesy or convoluted, but here they feel like a shot of juice straight to the veins as we eagerly followed the protomolecule and Holden's seemingly fated collision course. - TV Guide EDIT

90% American Horror Story: Apocalypse - The End (TV Episode) For a season that was so heavily promoted as the Murder House and Coven crossover, they sure are taking their sweet time before bringing in any of familiar faces. Instead, the premiere focuses on setting up the new characters. - TV Guide EDIT

82% Orange Is the New Black: Season 6 (TV, 2013-2018) Although Season 6 wasn't the series' best work by far, it was a stark reminder of how good Orange is when it brings in fresh blood and new perspectives rather than clinging to the old. - TV Guide EDIT

80% Marvel's Daredevil: Season 2 (TV, 2015-2018) While Season 2 initially appeared to live up to the hype, it soon fell victim to character glut... attempting to cram every major Daredevil plot and character into a claustrophobic 13 hours. - TV Guide EDIT

86% American Horror Story: Cult - Holes (TV Episode) It's been a while since American Horror Story delivered a death that was truly blood curdling. This scene was pure horror to watch and at the end of the day, isn't that kind of why we tune in? - TV Guide EDIT

95% The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel lacks the intricate world-building and comfort quality that has defined much of Sherman-Palladino's previous work, but there is enough of a unique spark to the project to warrant a watch. - TV Guide EDIT

89% The Handmaid's Tale: Season 1 - Night (TV Episode) There's no denying that The Handmaid's Tale is dark, but over the course of the first season, the Hulu drama has begun to focus more on the hope that this world can change rather than just how those trapped in Gilead manage to survive it. - TV Guide EDIT
