FEUD Review: “Abandoned!”

feud excerpt Season 1, Episode 7 – Feud finally hits the right level of vindictive manipulation in “Abandoned!” allowing both Crawford and Davis to own their personal problems while underscoring the true basis of their hatred. The episode emphasizes the issues of the characters themselves, rather than trying to make a misguided point about misogyny, and the story stands up better with that more personal conflict at the core.

GUERRILLA Review: “Pilot”

guerilla excerptSeason 1, Episode 1 – Guerilla is boring. Unfortunate because this John Ridley-created series is inspired by the real-life 1971 Black Liberation Movement. Jas and Marcus are at the forefront, and this is what makes it boring. It seems to be more about them justifying their mixed-race relationship than the cause.

EMPIRE Review: “My Naked Villainy”

Empire-ExcerptSeason 3, Episode 13 – Empire delivers one of the best scenes I can remember in TV. And although we need to have Lucious become a bedridden insane person in order to get there, I think it’s worth it.
