Season 3, Episode 3 – It was a pretty weird one, even by Fargo standards. The first episode to ever take place primarily outside Minnesota takes Gloria on a ride chock full of coincidences that if far-fetched is entertaining.
Season 1, Episode 10 – Yawn. A predictable conclusion to Taken‘s first season that tries hard to justify borrowing the movie franchise name fails on almost every level.
Season 2, Episode 20 – The enemy gains the upper hand on Quantico this week as all our heroes make moral compromises for the greater good, seemingly to no avail.
Season 3, Episode 8 – It’s a heartbreaking but poignant conclusion to this season of American Crime which some may find difficult to accept while others may see as perfectly fitting for this show critiquing current day America.
Season 1, Episode 10 – This episode of Training Day was a bit all over the place with the main mystery, but contained the most focused plotlines about Frank and Kyle’s relationship yet, making it a mixed bag.
Season 3, Episodes 8-10 – With plenty of shocking moments, the final three episodes of Bosch‘s third season do not disappoint, with satisfying conclusions for almost all plotlines, and one big cliffhanger.
Season 3, Episode 2 – It’s heating up in the midwest as Fargo lays the groundwork for another great season full of twists.
Season 3, Episodes 5-7 – Bosch‘s third season stays strong with this middle batch of episodes, keeping the pace steady with over half a dozen different plots to track. It’s a slow ride but the acting and surprises make it worth it.
Season 1, Episode 12 – APB ends its season (series?) with an entertaining episode but with a flawed antagonist and a cliffhanger we may get no resolution for.
Season 1, Episode 9 – What could have been a slam dunk episode with emotion and high stakes for Taken ends up being flat and predictable, leading us into what looks to be a flat and predictable finale next week.
Season 2, Episode 19 – Quantico pauses its recent string of episodes mirroring real world events to give us a pretty straightforward Mission of the Week. It’s a little flat, but has some surprises.
Season 3, Episodes 1-4 – Bosch Season 3 hits the ground running, introducing a plethora of mysteries off the bat, all while Detective Bosch is the most miserable and vulnerable we’ve ever seen him.
Season 3, Episode 7 – Another heartbreaker of an episode for American Crime as some plots wind down and others gear up for what’s sure to be a bleak finale next week.
Season 1, Episode 9 – Justin Cornwell’s Detective Kyle Craig finally takes the lead on this episode of Training Day having played second fiddle to Bill Paxton’s Frank Rourke for the entirety of the series. It’s a good thing.
Season 1, Episode 9 – Making the latest episode of Powerless a bottle episode lets the writers make jokes that stem from character and not the wacky DC Universe. It pays off here, in one of the better episodes of the season.
Season 3, Episode 1 – It’s tough to follow up Fargo‘s excellent second season, but the third season premiere shows a heckuva lot of promise.
Season 1, Episodes 12-13 – The conclusion of the first season of Trial & Error brings laughs, twists, and heartfelt goodbyes. You will be wanting a second season after watching this season end!
Season 1, Episode 8 – A twist ending and a personal mission for Christina Hart can’t redeem this boring, at times nonsensical episode of Taken.
Season 1, Episode 11 – An exciting, thought provoking episode of APB gets its highest grade yet and leaves viewers with a giant confrontation between Gideon and DV8 in the finale.
Season 2, Episode 18 – A solid episode of Quantico this week complete with two surprising character returns and good set-up for the final few episodes of the season.
Season 3, Episode 6 – American Crime is not for the faint of heart this week, as we lose another main character in the most tragic of ways, and things grow even more grim for the most powerless of our society.
Season 1, Episode 8 – Bill Paxton fans can’t miss this episode of Training Day as Paxton’s Frank Rourke recalls his childhood and father in an emotional arc, with guest appearances from Sam Trammel and Paxton’s own son James.
Season 1, Episode 11 – The latest episode of Trial & Error perfectly sets up the final two episodes of the season plot-wise, but is a little lighter on laughs this week.
Season 1, Episode 8 – Powerless is once again carried by Alan Tudyk’s Van Wayne in an otherwise forgettable episode.
Season 1, Episodes 9-10 – Both episodes bring the laughs once again, when Josh and the team first must deal with a surprise witness, then a hostile jury.
Season 1, Episode 10 – APB wisely puts some sideline players in the spotlight (one being Ernie Hudson’s Captain Conrad) and the episode benefits from it.
Season 1, Episode 7 – It’s hard to care about any of the stakes when you couldn’t possibly care less about the characters. Another lackluster episode of NBC’s Taken.
Season 2, Episode 17 – Quantico gets political, with the team tasked with striking down an impending Muslim Registry vote in congress. A different take for this show, but it works!
Season 3, Episode 5 – It’s a tough hour to watch, but this is good television. American Crime‘s characters are all faced with the illusion of choice, but really are stuck between bad and worse.
Season 1, Episode 7 – Training Day returns with an enjoyable if less action packed episode than usual. If you want to savor ever second of Bill Paxton’s final work, you should catch his performance here.
