Season 1, Episodes 3-4 – With its two latest episodes Trial & Error has proven it wasn’t a fluke: this show is clever, very funny, and hopefully here to stay.
Season 1, Episode 4 – Taken takes it up a notch with an episode reminiscent of the movie franchise plot, but it’s still just a watered down version of the beloved films.
Season 1, Episode 7 – The latest APB is exactly what you expect from an episode of this show, except for the addition of a new character to spice up Gideon’s love life.
Season 2, Episode 14 – A solid return for Quantico as the story picks up in a single timeline but sets up continued twists and turns for the second half of season two.
Season 3, Episode 2 – American Crime brings a more focused and still outstanding episode, revealing some interesting plot turns and highlighting the plight of the powerless and exploited in America.
Season 1, Episodes 1-2 – It was a strong showing right out of the gate for NBC’s Trial & Error with the first two episodes premiering back to back. The writing is strong, the cast has the chops, and it is definitely worth your time.
Season 1, Episode 6 – Two talented guest stars make this week’s APB a tad more watchable, but it is still far from television’s best.
Season 1, Episode 3 – Taken takes us for another lackluster ride with more action paling in comparison to the original movies and boring attempts to make its characters seem sympathetic.
Season 1, Episode 4 – Big Little Lies gets it right again with a solid episode that doesn’t answer many questions but reveals plenty of new motives for the infamous Trivia Night killer.
Season 3, Episode 1 – American Crime starts off its third season strong, though simple, with a talented cast that makes the large group of characters feel very real.
Season 1, Episode 6 – Tommy is put in the spotlight this week on Training Day as a childhood friend is taken into custody, with a gang and a corrupt government agency gunning for him alike. Bill Paxton shines on.
Season 1, Episode 5 – Again Powerless falls flat. Though with one or two solid laughs, the episode puts Danny Pudi’s Teddy in the spotlight, but doesn’t do his proven comedic chops justice.
Season 1, Episode 8 – An action packed first half is followed by a quiet, sad ending to the first season of History’s Six, setting things up nicely for its forthcoming second season.
Season 1, Episode 2 – Taken does NOT improve in its second episode, and in fact gets even worse than its first, with watered down action sequences and characters you’ll struggle to truly invest yourself in.
Season 1, Episode 5 – More of the same from APB on Fox this week, with predictable run-and-catch-the-bad-guy stories, with Gideon’s technology being the only semi-interesting element. It’s not enough to save the show.
Season 1, Episode 5 – Training Day dedicates this episode to the late great Bill Paxton, and it’s a fittingly fun, fast-paced hour that lets Paxton’s Rourke truly shine.
Season 1, Episode 7 – Things heat up on History’s Six in its penultimate episode, setting things up perfectly for the finale, and providing an ending that will make you cheer.
Season 1, Episode 1 – Don’t be Taken by surprise: the Taken prequel series is not even a fraction as enjoyable as its film series of origin, offering nothing wholly original or compelling.
Season 1, Episode 4 – Gideon Reeves creates a $2 million dollar jacket in this week’s APB that allows police to wear a wire undetected by bad guys. An interesting premise, but doesn’t quite deliver on its promise of cleverness and excitement.
Season 1, Episode 10 – The season finale of Beyond brings us some interesting turns, one or two truly bad ass moments, and sets things up for a BIG second season.
Season 1, Episode 4 – Another misstep this week for Powerless as the cast, though talented on their own, fail to display chemistry and the writers keep the jokes that hit few and far between.
Season 1, Episode 4 – Training Day is basically The Bill Paxton Show, but this episode has him at the top of his game, carrying the show and providing a solid hour of popcorny TV, complete with some witty one-liners.
Season 1, Episode 2 – The second episode of Doubt plays real clunky with its transition from drama to attempts at comedy, and provides three cases where you’re not sure who to root for.
Season 1, Episode 6 – Six brings a solid episode that explores character while advancing plot, and sets things up perfectly for the remaining two episodes this season.
Season 2, Episode 13 – It’s a mid-season reset for Quantico with storylines being resolved and revelations finally revealed, and it may be just what the show needed.
Season 1, Episode 9 – The second to last episode of Beyond brings us some long-awaited character meetings and sets things up perfectly for the season finale.
Season 1, Episode 3 – This episode of APB fails to deliver on its promise of interesting and unique technology being incorporated into the police procedural and skips a week on its more interesting plotline.
Season 1, Episode 3 – This week’s Training Day was surprisingly solid, with a lot of moving pieces and twists, but left room for some much needed character moments.
Season 1, Episode 3 – Powerless might just finally win you over with its third and strongest episode, smartly putting Alan Tudyk’s Van Wayne at its center and finally utilizing the DC Universe in a funny way.
Season 1, Episode 1 – Doubt is just another courtroom procedural that fails to stand out in the history of the genre, despite a mostly strong and diverse cast. If they give these actors more to work with, we may have something notable.
