Women have been flooding the streets in impressive numbers to bring awareness to a plethora of women’s rights issues. Now, as we celebrate Women’s History Month, International Women’s Day, let’s take a look back at some of the most important women in television history.
Season 3, Episodes 1-4 – In its most captivating installment yet, Hap and Leonard displays a newfound focus and maturity, alongside invigorating new cast members.
Season 1, Episode 2 – The show swings and misses with a second episode that is too cartoony and makes things too easy for our protagonist.
Season 1, Episode 4 – Four episodes in and Here and Now still struggles to make a good case for why viewers should invest their time in this series.
Season 1, Episode 13 – The episode is not so packed with action, but it delivers an emotional punch and takes on some current hot-button issues.
Season 2, Episode 11 – The West Wing reboot Designated Survivor is back! And it’s a big mess. And a big “meh.”
Season 2, Episode 6 – The episode makes an attempt to give us some sympathy for the devil, and while as compelling as ever, it’s just too hard to feel bad for Andrew Cunanan.
Season 2, Episode 16 – The Pearson gang travels to Vegas for Toby’s and Kate’s bachelor/bachelorette parties only for typical Pearson drama to unfold. But of course the show still feels fresh in its charm.
Season 1, Episode 1- The pilot walks a thin line between trying not to offend and calling attention to ridiculous parts of the Bible, and the show may suffer for it.
Season 1, Episode 3 – In its messiest episode yet, characters become more unlikable, act more unreasonably, and we get no answers about the “11 11” mystery.
“Something began to change around the turn of the century on television. Real three dimensional characters with mental illnesses began popping up on television screens front and center, and played straight, or at least with deliberateness and compassion,” writes Paul Gulyas.
Season 1, Episode – The second episode of the series doubles down on the messiness of the pilot and gives little for the viewer to latch on to.
Season 2, Episode 5 – The backstory of ill-fated Jeff Trail is revealed, and the larger picture of these stories snaps into focus in an excellent episode.
Season 1, Episode 1 – The premiere episode of the new series from HBO and Alan Ball (Six Feet Under, True Blood) feels unfocused, but is still watchable.
Season 2, Episode 4 – This week brings us back even further in Cunanan’s timeline leading up to the murder of Versace, and the writers capitalize on vague real life events.
Season 1, Episode 16 – The latest episode of 9JKL ends the first season with a big dose of “meh.”
Season 1, Episode 12 – Hondo leads S.W.A.T. in a raid that turns up several missing barrels of cyanide while Jessica faces resistance for her police reform proposal.
Season 2, Episode 3 – In its most gripping episode of the season yet, American Crime Story flashes back to show us another of Andrew Cunanan’s vicious murders.
Season 1, Episode 15 – The series gets a boost from a classic guest star as Cheri Oteri plays Patty, Josh’s old stalker who has since moved on.
Season 1, Episode 13 – The Brave course corrects with a much stronger second half to its two part first season finale.
Season 2, Episode 2 – The game of cat and mouse between Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the authorities continues, giving us a deeper look into the killer’s mind.
Season 1, Episode 12 – The first part of the two-part finale underwhelms, as it uncharacteristically steps away from the action.
Season 1, Episode 14 – A slightly better than average episode (which isn’t saying much) has Harry taking on acting and Judy fearing the end is near.
Season 1, Episode 11 – Though not a stand-out episode, this week’s S.W.A.T. will keep viewers invested in the characters and appreciative of the action sequences
Season 2, Episode 1 – The premiere episode lays solid groundwork but feels like the story has yet to really take off.
Season 1, Episode 11 – The mission of the week takes Dalton and his team to Columbia to deal with plane hijackers, but the show still finds time for nice character moments amidst the action
Season 1, Episode 13 – 9JKL returns from its winter hiatus with an episode that already feels like the series is running out of steam.
Season 1, Episodes 7-10 – The sci-fi series builds some unique worlds to transport viewers to in its later episodes, but still doesn’t offer much other similar shows can not
Season 1, Episodes 4-6 – The series covers well-trodden (perhaps too well-trodden) ground with the middle three episodes, though solid performances from recognizable faces lend a helping hand.
Season 1, Episodes 1-3 – Though it has its moments (particularly in its premiere episode), the series feels like a less cleverly crafted Black Mirror.
