4.6/5 100% Suits: Season 5 (TV, 2015-2016) One thing Suits has done so well is establish the friendly woman-to-woman relationship between Rachel and Donna.‐ TV Fanatic

84% Titans: Season 1 (TV, 2018) Even if the violence and deviations turn viewers off (as they almost did for me), the quest these characters are on is engaging enough to keep even the most casual viewer intrigued and coming back for more.‐ TV Guide

4.5/5 100% The Musketeers: Season 2 (TV, 2015) Our fearsome foursome took center stage immediately, throwing punches and jokes at every turn.‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 88% Arrow: Season 4 - Restoration (TV Episode) It's a good thing Oliver manages to take a metaphorical bullet for Diggle, allowing the two to let bygones be bygones. FINALLY!‐ Tell-Tale TV

4/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - The Fallen (TV Episode) "The Fallen" has everything you want to see in a sweeps episode: the dead coming back to life, long-awaited sex scenes, heart-wrenching goodbyes, and a climactic ending that leaves you wanting more.‐ Tell-Tale TV

94% Arrow: Season 3 - Public Enemy (TV Episode) The flashback storyline fills in the blank of just how Shado came back from the dead and got to Hong Kong.‐ Tell-Tale TV

3.5/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - Nanda Parbat (TV Episode) Why can't Tatsu and Maseo just ride off into the sunset with their cute little family instead of heading down the road to heartbreak?‐ Tell-Tale TV

3/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - Canaries (TV Episode) It is almost refreshing to see Oliver sit someone down and explain the whole story on his own terms. Even more refreshing is Thea's reaction.‐ Tell-Tale TV

4/5 81% Arrow: Season 3 - Uprising (TV Episode) Compared to that heart-wrenching rejection, the rest of the episode kind of fades to the background.‐ Tell-Tale TV

4.5/5 74% Arrow: Season 3 - My Name Is Oliver Queen (TV Episode) Well, where on earth are we going to go after a finale like that?‐ Tell-Tale TV

3/5 88% Arrow: Season 3 - Ah Sah-Him (TV Episode) Last night's shaky episode of Arrow was a disappointing change up from the thrilling streak of episodes we've had lately.‐ Tell-Tale TV

4/5 94% Arrow: Season 3 - Broken Arrow (TV Episode) I think the term 'emotional roller coaster' was built exclusively for this episode of Arrow.‐ Tell-Tale TV

4.5/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - Midnight City (TV Episode) These writers are trying to kill us with Olicity, I'm sure of it. I had a brief round of ugly sobbing after that dream kiss on "Midnight City," which got even worse when I realized it was Oliver's dream -- not Felicity's. Someone pinch me.‐ Tell-Tale TV

4/5 100% Arrow: Season 3 - Left Behind (TV Episode) I can't be the only one who cried, can I?‐ Tell-Tale TV

4/5 79% Arrow: Season 4 - Code of Silence (TV Episode) Bizarre theory: what if Darhk's daughter is the real mastermind pulling the strings here? Now that would be a twist.‐ Tell-Tale TV

100% Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 5 (TV, 2017-2018) The Season 5 finale of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. took us on a wild ride, and more than a few tears were shed before all was said and done.‐ TV Guide

4/5 80% Arrow: Season 4 - Taken (TV Episode) While it's possibly the most complex and interesting relationship on the whole show, Thea has needed to have this kind of "Come To Jesus" moment with Malcolm for a long time.‐ Tell-Tale TV
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2018
73% Arrow: Season 4 - Sins of the Father (TV Episode) They're trying to power through story too quickly, making it feel like a race to the finish line rather than a carefully thought out narrative.‐ Tell-Tale TV

4/5 80% Arrow: Season 4 - A.W.O.L. (TV Episode) Olicity continues to be adorable instead of boring. How are they achieving this dark magic?‐ Tell-Tale TV

5/5 73% Arrow: Season 4 - Blood Debts (TV Episode) This episode of Arrow doesn't move at quiet the brisk pace the mid-season finale did, but that's not technically a bad thing. We've got to build moment again, moving into second half the season, and that's exactly what "Blood Debts" does.‐ Tell-Tale TV

4.5/5 88% Arrow: Season 4 - Dark Waters (TV Episode) What would have been an otherwise trite kidnapping subplot was saved by two things: Olicity and Malcolm Merlyn.‐ Tell-Tale TV
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2018
4.5/5 88% Arrow: Season 4 - Legends of Yesterday (TV Episode) No stilted introductions, no 'getting to know and trust you' stuff. "Legends of Yesterday" was also a great promo to get fans queued up for the new spinoff. ‐ Tell-Tale TV

4/5 100% Arrow: Season 4 - Brotherhood (TV Episode) Felicity and Ray's friendship is so awesome. If only we could all get along so well with our exes.‐ Tell-Tale TV
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2018
100% Arrow: Season 4 - Lost Souls (TV Episode) As we all know, joy must come to and end for the sake of drama on every television show. Luckily, this relationship drama makes complete sense and fits flawlessly into the current Arrow storylines. It's not just drama for drama's sake.‐ Tell-Tale TV

4.5/5 94% Arrow: Season 4 - Haunted (TV Episode) Any day where Thea Queen gets a nice, juicy plot is a good day.‐ Tell-Tale TV
Read More | Posted Aug 1, 2018
4/5 94% Arrow: Season 4 - Beyond Redemption (TV Episode) It had all the witty banter, acrobatic fighting, and heartfelt moments that make this show so great. Oliver's latest attempts to save the city just lacked the kind of drive and forward momentum that take a good episode and makes it spectacular.‐ Tell-Tale TV

4/5 89% Arrow: Season 4 - The Candidate (TV Episode) It's still too early to tell if I'm going to enjoy the flashback portion of the season this year. On the one hand, Oliver returning under the guise of a shipwrecked party boy is interesting... On the other hand, we're back on that damn island again.‐ Tell-Tale TV

5/5 94% Arrow: Season 4 - Green Arrow (TV Episode) Arrow has truly stepped up its game in this premiere, setting up Season 4 to be the best yet. ‐ Tell-Tale TV

No Score Yet RuPaul's Drag Race: Season 10 (TV, 2018) Don't worry, no butterflies were harmed in the making of this drag race, but the damage was pretty much done.‐ TV Guide

72% Westworld: Season 2 - The Passenger (TV Episode) Westworld is perhaps one of the most confusing shows on television, so naturally the Season 2 finale pushed the boundaries and even bordered on nonsensical at times. ‐ TV Guide
Read More | Posted Jun 25, 2018
No Score Yet Shadowhunters: Season 3 (TV, 2018) Shadowhunters may have given us a pretty dark episode, what with Jace turning out to be the person under the Owl's mysterious mask all along - more on that later - but at least it was tempered with some adorable domestic Malec moments.‐ TV Guide

87% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - The Dragon and the Wolf (TV Episode) Basically, Season 8 is going to be nuts.‐ TV Guide

82% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Beyond the Wall (TV Episode) The accelerated timeline of Season 7 is beginning to feel less like rising action, and more like a race to the finish line.‐ TV Guide

93% Game of Thrones: Season 7 - Dragonstone (TV Episode) While the premiere didn't give us any of the fiery battle scenes or gripping dialogue from the trailer, it did give us a few huge things to talk about that will surely impact the rest of the season (and the series) as it draws to a close.‐ TV Guide

4.6/5 86% Nashville: Season 4 (TV, 2015-2016) First of all, a round of applause for Hayden Panettiere and her amazing range. She portrayed the full spectrum of emotion, from flirty to bitchy to carefree to decimated. She might be all over the board, but she owns every single scene.‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 100% iZombie: Season 2 (TV, 2016) I will say that the premiere did a flawless job of weaving an otherwise small time murder case into Liv's personal identity crisis.‐ TV Fanatic

4.3/5 93% Orphan Black: Season 3 - History Yet to Be Written (TV Episode) Orphan Black Season 3 did a great job of uniting all of the clones under a common cause and turning them into a family. Yes, even Helena!‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 78% Orphan Black: Season 3 - Insolvent Phantom of Tomorrow (TV Episode) This week, Orphan Black Season 3 Episode 9 finally delivered on the question raised at the beginning of the season. Who are the original DNA donors for Project Leda and Castor? The answer was something you probably never saw coming! ‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 91% Orphan Black: Season 3 - Ruthless in Purpose, and Insidious in Method (TV Episode) Is it just me, or is Delphine a little more... cutthroat this season? It's not that I don't like it, she's just become very intense very fast. No one get in her way, she might just steamroll you right over.‐ TV Fanatic

3.5/5 82% Orphan Black: Season 3 - Community of Dreadful Fear and Hate (TV Episode) It's been a while since we had a good old clone club switcharoo, so watching Alison and Cosima juggle speeches and photo ops was a great call back to early Orphan Black days.‐ TV Fanatic

4.3/5 93% Orphan Black: Season 3 - Certain Agony of the Battlefield (TV Episode) As far as shockers go, Orphan Black Season 3 Episode 6 definitely delivered.‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 85% Orphan Black: Season 3 - Scarred by Many Past Frustrations (TV Episode) After a few episodes without Delphine, I think we were all ready to see Cosima dip a toe back in the dating pool.‐ TV Fanatic

4.2/5 92% Orphan Black: Season 3 - Newer Elements of Our Defense (TV Episode) I've complained that Alison hasn't played enough of a part in the clone shenanigans recently, but those complaints come to an end tonight. ‐ TV Fanatic

4.1/5 85% Orphan Black: Season 3 - Formalized, Complex, and Costly (TV Episode) Who else is still reeling from that shocking and violent ending?‐ TV Fanatic

100% Orphan Black: Season 3 - The Weight of This Combination (TV Episode) No matter how bizarre and sometimes indecipherable Helena's story is, you just have to love the weird way her brain operates. Talking scorpions and baby shower hallucinations are on and the same inside her head.‐ TV Fanatic

3/5 91% Orphan Black: Season 3 - Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis (TV Episode) Now that Kira is safely out of the way, I've got a feeling this war is about to heat up even more.‐ TV Fanatic

3/5 No Score Yet Cougar Town: Season 6 (TV, 2015) The whole thing felt a little rushed and silly, resolving itself almost as soon as it started, but Laurie's slow-motion nickle attack was good for a laugh. Not to worry, we got our regular helping of life lessons and emotional revelations towards the end.‐ TV Fanatic

4/5 92% iZombie: Season 1 (TV, 2015) The real reason this new series is looking like a winner is the dazzling wit behind every joke and one-liner. It's a smart show for smart people, if you can handle the fast talk.‐ TV Fanatic
