Working under Raven’s orders the group have only ninety precious minutes to pull off the impossible task of reaching the Ark in space before it’s too late.

Season 3, Episode 18 – Empire‘s season finale is here, and unfortunately it’s my least favorite episode of the season. Though we get endings to most plotlines this season, what’s particularly frustrating are the logical leaps we are forced to make in order to get there. From Charlotte to Guisi to the DuBois family, we are left with many unsatisfactory endings that do not do justice to many episodes this season.
While today is no doubt a sad day for fans of The Get Down, they shouldn’t worry about this cast being out of work for too long. You’re going to be seeing plenty more of them on the big screen over the next few years. Let us break it down for you…

Season 1, Episode 7 – This episode told entirely from Luke’s perspective is a compelling story, but loses a lot of what makes The Handmaid’s Tale a great and unique show.
Season 1, Episode 5 – This week’s episode of Genius was more of the same, and similar to every other week, it struck a chord somewhere between “fine” (music is fine, visually it’s fine, the acting is fine, the writing is fine) and incredibly frustrating to watch.

Season 5, Episode 8 – In the 8th installment of Prison Break, everything starts to heat up with Jacob and Michael back in the states. If there’s one word to describe this episode it would be blood. So much blood was spilled it should have been a drinking game, especially in the final minutes.

Season 3, Episode 1-3 – Casual introduces a trio of episodes that manages to meander throughout its own construct without ever really honing in on any one thing. You can’t help but feel like this show needs to comment more on the change in our daily lives that it does.

If a remake of Dirty Dancing had to be happen, then it was crucial that every detail was in order. If anything was out of place, wrong or tonally off, then rabid fans of the original would make it known. That said, ABC sure as better brace themselves for the wrath of Johnny Castle diehards.
Season 3, Episodes 1-13 – It is impossible to dislike the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
