True Detective’s two-hour season three premiere is a tour-de-force showcase of Mahershala Ali’s incredible range, as well as this season’s preoccupation with time, memory, and the fluidity of both.
Brianna must dodge Aunt Jocasta’s ambitions to marry her off, while Roger’s fate hangs in the balance.
With only three episodes left, there’s a lot of work that needs to be done to redeem this season. The only question is whether there are enough twists and turns to make the previous nine episode slog worthwhile.
Brianna and Jamie meet for the first time, but their relationship may soon be on the rocks due to a misunderstanding.
This episode features one of the darkest plot twists in Outlander history, and that’s saying a lot.
The return of Tobias Menzies helps soften the blow of a Claire and Jamie-less Outlander episode, and distract from Sophie Skelton’s flat performance when Brianna and Roger’s adventures take center stage.
Outlander spins its wheels in an episode that doesn’t seem to move the season’s story forward.
This episode of Outlander uses its time to set up a couple of conflicts that will play out as the season unfolds, setting expectations of tension incredibly high as an old friend of Claire and Jamie is reintroduced.
This week’s episode of Outlander investigates the connection between community and its ability to keep the inner beasts of mankind at bay.
Claire and Jamie leave Aunt Jocasta’s, and Claire finds something that may hold the key to helping her understand what makes time travel possible on Outlander.
Jamie has a lot to learn about the customs and ways of the people in this new country he intends to call home. His time at Aunt Jocasta’s will give him a hard lesson about America and freedom.
Droughtlander is finally over! The season picks up four months after Claire and Jamie wash up on the shores of America. The New World poses new problems for the couple since they find themselves far away from their Scottish home, yet still under the thumb of British rule. America is a beautiful, yet troubled place (it still is for that matter) and does not shy away from confronting America’s troubled history within the narrative of the premiere.
