3.5/5 Supergirl: Season 5 - Event Horizon (TV Episode) Shelby Elpers Last season ended on a pretty ominous note after a very politically-heavy season, and Supergirl Season 5 Episode 1, "Event Horizon," feels like the perfect reentry into the National City we know and love. EDIT

3/5 Fear the Walking Dead: Season 5 - Channel 5 (TV Episode) Nick Hogan So even with the problems, "Channel 5" was enjoyable and set up a compelling finale. Their strong character work is still outweighing some of the weirder plot choices. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
2/5 Fear the Walking Dead: Season 5 - End of the Line (TV Episode) Nick Hogan The cliffhanger ending brings almost no satisfaction to a 16-episode season, and frankly it's too much to ask. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
Succession: Season 2 - Dundee (TV Episode) Kevin Lever One of the more illuminating realizations to come out of the episode is that celebrations, milestones, and victories all come as diminished or tainted with this group. EDIT
Posted Sep 30, 2019
3/5 Preacher: Season 4 - End of the World (TV Episode) Mary Misasi The action was all still there and personal preferences aside - the show ends on a thoroughly complete note that is ultimately still satisfying. EDIT

4.5/5 Grey's Anatomy: Season 16 (TV, 2019) Ashley Bissette Sumerel It baffles me that I don't see more people screaming from the rooftops about how well Grey's...has done at keeping its stories fresh and interesting and important while continuing to develop characters it has had on the series since the very beginning.

4.5/5 Suits: Season 9 - One Last Con (TV Episode) Ashley Bissette Sumerel The Suits series finale ends in the best and most satisfying way possible. It's poetic, emotional, and bittersweet as it offers both endings and new beginnings. EDIT
Posted Sep 26, 2019
3.5/5 Emergence: Season 1 (TV, 2019) Drew Koenig That's what makes "2 MG CU BID" so interesting because it is so bold in the way it presents information that another show would wait a long time to deliver. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2019

2.5/5 Bless This Mess: Season 2 (TV, 2019) Charles E. Henning The episode is definitely one of the weaker ones since the premiere of the series. EDIT
Posted Sep 25, 2019

Posted Sep 23, 2019
Succession: Season 2 - Return (TV Episode) Kevin Lever Jeremy Strong has been unbelievable this season on Succession, but this episode in particular is exemplary. Standing out on this titan cast, and doing so while mostly catatonic and locked in the subtleties of brokenness. EDIT
Posted Sep 23, 2019
