Season 5, Episodes 1-5 – Season five of Orange is the New Black is much darker than the seasons before. It shines when it focuses on the disenfranchised characters we’ve grown to love, but spends to much time on tertiary and harsh characters.
Season 1, Episode 4 – In excerpts from Offred’s past, and a look at how she handles her current situation, seeds of a rebellion slowly start to grow in this week’s The Handmaid’s Tale.
Season 1, Episodes 1-5 – In its first five episodes Ingobernable sets the stage for an intriguing political intrigue drama with a compelling lead. Hopefully, the show can keep this momentum going in answer some of the burning questions that the show asks.
Season 1, Episode 4 – On the very edge of an affair being uncovered and a movie theater closing, Riverdale continues to bring the mystery and the drama, in a very silly way.
Season 1, Episode 14 – It was never a great writing choice to end every episode on an expectations-shifting cliffhanger of a plot twist, but at least there was something to look forward to during that time. Now, every episode is starting to feel a little sluggish.
Season 1, Episode 13 – This Is Us provides some sweet moments, but once again drowns in predictability and sap. It’s gotten to the point in the show where they seemed to have maybe run out of ideas.

Season 1, Episode 12-13 – Season one of The Good Place ends on a massive twist, leaving everyone praying for a second season.
Season 1, Episode 12 – This Is Us stays permanently in 1980 this week, which could be an interesting choice, but falls flat. When the format changed to include none of Jack and Rebecca’s kids, and a whole lot of winking at the audience, the show fell victim to the most self-indulgent side of the show.
