Overambition can be our own worst nightmare, a lesson that American Horror Story displays and might need a lesson in. The worldbuilding that was going on in the introduction was necessary, and yet now it feels like the show is falling back into old habits. Trying to create shocking twists and turns is necessary to keep things fresh, but what happens when there is too much going on? American Horror Story is familiar with that question considering the seasons before this one that strugg...]]>

<![CDATA[Managing Partner]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Suits/Season-8/episode-10/reviews/Managing-Partner
The long-gestating battle between Alex and Samantha to be named partner at the firm thankfully concluded on Suits Season 8 Episode 10, and it was about time.  The clashing from within the firm has dumbed down this series to the point that I don't even look forward to it anymore.  When things took a turn for the better on Suits Season 8 Episode 9, what with old foes coming for the firm guns blazing, I figured the show would fall back on to the mediocrity train.  However, ...]]>

<![CDATA[The Urge to Purge]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Purge/Season-1/episode-3/reviews/The-Urge-to-Purge
Oh, where to start when all of the storylines get a kick in the pants? The Purge Season 1 Episode 3 was a lot more fun than the previous two installments even if it was just as easy to kick back and roll your eyes at the idiocy of the proceedings.  Some new players are coming and going in the background giving our gullible leads a lot more material to chew on, and it's exactly what the doctor ordered! The introduction of a new mystery with the groovy lookin' dude in the ir...]]>

<![CDATA[Whatever Remains, However Improbable]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Elementary/Season-6/episode-21/reviews/Whatever-Remains-However-Improbable
What a great twist! Sherlock and Joan found an innovative way to reboot their partnership on Elementary Season 6 Episode 21. After six years in New York, maybe it is time for them to have a change, as this soft cliffhanger suggests. I was expecting something grander for the finale. Why have Morland stop by, and mention Moriarty's machinations, if you're not going to go back to them? Also, I expected Mycroft to be resurrected, somehow. You can't just erase such an import...]]>

<![CDATA[Ready-Like]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Insecure/Season-3/episode-6/reviews/Ready-Like
On Insecure Season 3 Episode 6, Issa aims to get back on her feet, but she's swept back under when she bumps into Lawrence. Insecure really did just successfully pull off one of the greatest tricks of all time -- making us all think Lawrence was gone for good and throwing him back into the fray! I hope you were surprised by the end of Insecure Season 3 Episode 5 because I sure was. I didn't see it coming at all and was honestly a little disappointed that he wasn't coming back, but t...]]>

<![CDATA[Mo White for President]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Shameless/Season-9/episode-2/reviews/Mo-White-for-President
Poor Liam.  On Shameless Season 9 Episode 2 the child paid for the sins of his father, and it resulted in his ouster from the lucrative private school that gave him the start in life all of the Gallagher children never got.  What I've liked about Liam's growth over the last few years is that he's different from the rest of his family; he's trying to be a good person and knows that if you don't play by the rules, you can find yourself in prison.  The kid was out of his d...]]>

<![CDATA[Fog of War]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Last-Ship/Season-5/episode-2/reviews/Fog-of-War
That didn't take long. The Nathan James was quickly back to being the "Point of the Spear" on The Last Ship Season 5 Episode 2. After all, most of that ship's crew is used to being part of the U.S. Navy's first, and often only, line of defense. The more things change ... A big part of the Nathan James's success in recent years has been its crew's ability to improvise, and that point was hammered home on this episode. Improvisation will likely be a big part of the milita...]]>

<![CDATA[MM 54]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Fear-The-Walking-Dead/Season-4/episode-14/reviews/MM-54
Bad things happen when you try and help people. That was the ongoing theme on Fear the Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 14, as we explored the backstory of The Filthy Woman, as well as learned some interesting tidbits on Sarah, and Wendell. Also, Morgan's attempts at leading the group to safety put his leadership -- and his hope -- to the test. While The Filthy Woman's lengthy backstory wasn't essential, we did finally learn that her real name is Martha. Thank goodness that...]]>

It looks like the girls are going to get a new stepmom, and Abby is not a fan.  Trace: So how long can you keep doing this?Abby: Doing what?Trace: Making homemade ice cream, going to pottery classes, and planning all-day scavenger hunts before you go to work at night?Abby: I'm just trying to spend quality time with my daughters.Trace: Abby, it's not a competition.You know, M...]]>

<![CDATA[The Last Nice Guy in New York]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/You/Season-1/episode-2/reviews/The-Last-Nice-Guy-in-New-York
Who is Beck?  While YOU Season 1 Episode 2 ended on a dark note, Beck's elusive nature was at the forefront. Who is this woman? Who is she at the core? Nearly everything about YOU's writing is so deliberate that Beck coming across unremarkable in YOU Season 1 Episode 1 felt purposeful. Beck remains an utter mystery. She may be the co-lead, but even when there are scenes that are solely devoted to her, she's difficult to pin down. There was more of Beck this time around, b...]]>

<![CDATA[Undo It]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Wynonna-Earp/Season-3/episode-9/reviews/Undo-It
On Wynonna Earp Season 3 Episode 9, things get rough and wild when the Earps are set off on two different paths: one in the hands of Bulshar's mind and one in the hands of Bulshar's ring. Wynonna gets the short end of the stick when she must battle again and again in her own Groundhog Day-type situation. It's delightfully entertaining to watch and really gets at Melanie Scrofano's range. 37 Times Siblings Made Things More Interesting Start Gallery Forcing Doc an...]]>

<![CDATA[Saying Goodbye to a Loved One]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Days-of-our-Lives/Season-53/episode-248/reviews/Saying-Goodbye-to-a-Loved-One
Serious injuries and miraculous recoveries are a soap opera staple, with good reason. When a family member is injured or dying, friends and family bond together and emotions run high. These kinds of realistic, relationship-driven stories were once Days of Our Lives' backbone, and they are seen all too infrequently nowadays. But on Days of Our Lives during the week of 9-10-18, viewers were treated to the heartwrenching story of Belle and John fighting over what to do about Marlena'...]]>

No deal lasts for long in Teresa's world and Queen of the South Season 3 Episode 13 had agreements crumbling almost as quickly as they were made. Cortez did hand over King George for Camila and send Teresa her shipment of cocaine, but that's where their deal detonated, literally.  I hope Taza got his 50 kilos before they moved the drugs to the warehouse.  Speaking of which, it was incredibly generous of Teresa to offer him twice the amount they had settled on if he worke...]]>

<![CDATA[Casus Belli]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-Last-Ship/Season-5/episode-1/reviews/Casus-Belli-41237
Well, that certainly started off with a bang. It was a new twist on an old concept on The Last Ship Season 5 Episode 1. An actual virus, the Red Flu, plagued mankind back on The Last Ship Season 1. Now a computer virus hindered the U.S. military on the first episode of the series' final season. This certainly resonates in a country still reeling from the effects of Russian hacking that influenced our electoral system. We're all far too dependent on technology in our...]]>

<![CDATA[Are You There, Shim? It's Me, Ian]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Shameless/Season-9/episode-1/reviews/Are-You-There-Shim-It-s-Me-Ian
It's not easy to keep things fresh after so long on the air, but Shameless Season 9 Episode 1 was filled with the signature humor, drama, and acting that we've come to expect from this Showtime hit.  Moving on was the name of the game on "Are You There, Shim? It's Me, Ian" but for some of the characters, that's easier said than done.  Fiona and Ford's relationship continued to blossom, and it's only natural for Fiona to have trust issues. She's unlucky in love, and all of the ...]]>

<![CDATA[The Becktel Test]]> http://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/You/Season-1/episode-1/reviews/The-Becktel-Test
The fault in calling YOU a guilty pleasure is the implication that there is something to feel guilty about.  It has been teased as a lurid tale of obsession and seduction, and it is. It's sexy, provocative, and thrilling. But YOU Season 1 Episode 1 also showed us that the series is witty, funny, and smart. Joe Goldberg isn't self-aware, but the series itself is. It is hands down the best offering Lifetime has given us since the first season of UnREAL. I only hope it can keep up the...]]>

On Wynonna Earp Season 3 Episode 8, Wynonna gets some answers from Kate while the gang is haunted by a familiar face -- or rather, a familiar (disfigured) figure -- Constance Clootie! Yes, it's true -- Bulshar has resurrected Constance Clootie, recognizable in her signature coat but now with a head completely blackened by the elements. However, vigilant viewers will see that Peacemaker glowed blue for a split second before cutting to Doc! What's that all about, anyway? The last...]]>

On Insecure Season 3 Episode 5, Issa's responsibilities are taken to a whole new level after she and her friends go to Coachella, but nothing goes according to plan.

Seriously? Michael may have gotten revenge on Sherlock and Joan on Elementary Season 6 Episode 20. But he's no longer around to enjoy it. That was a wild turn of events. Did anyone think Michael wouldn't be around for the season finale? That was a bold move, taking out the season's big bad, then pinning the murder on Joan.

It feels a little bit wrong writing about Purging on the latest anniversary of 9/11, but with the division of the country, maybe it's exactly as it should be. While The Purge Season 1 Episode 1 asked the question by way of the title, "What is America?" The Purge Season 1 Episode 2 answers it straight away through a radio announcer: The Purge IS America, so be an American and Purge. Radio Broadcaster Permalink: The Purge IS America, so be an American and Purge. If The P...]]>

The firm was under attack, the antagonists of the hour were coming after them, and it was goddamn bullshit.  In other words, Suits Season 8 Episode 9 was a standard installment of Suits. All snark aside, the heart of Suits is the interesting bonds and dynamics, particularly those between the mentor/mentees. Did the nostalgia kick in a bit for you when Katrina sought ought Harvey for advice and received some from Louis? Harvey is great at mentoring, and with Mike gone,...]]>

The apocalypse is here, and if there is one thing to take away from this, it is that none of us are ready.  It is starting how embedded we are in the idea of horror being a casual thing in which a moment like a missile announcement can be waved off by some and feel like a real reaction that could happen.  During American Horror Story Season 8 Episode 1, missiles destroyed Earth, and there were only a few survivors who have to adjust to their new normal. Some of them got this h...]]>

Our survivor's luck may have just run out. On Fear the Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 13, Morgan continued his search for his friends, Luciana attempted to help a stranger, and John and Strand came face to face with a vicious set of gnawing teeth. And they didn't belong to a walker! It was good to see what Luciana had been up to since storming off after Charlie on the mid-season premiere.  Luciana is easily my least favorite character on the show right now, so I don't re...]]>

Jaq may not even be a week old, but he's already discovered what a conflicted family into which he was born. Like any teenager, Jaq started the trip to his father's homeworld by being bored.

There is no business without a product to sell, and with El Santo in the wind, Teresa was left scrambling for a new supplier on Queen of the South Season 3 Episode 12. She ended up playing her own version of Let's Make a Deal starting with Camila as her first contestant. Do you think Camila requested that specific red dress or did James pick it out for her? Personally, I think the low cut front made her look trashy and even more desperate. Camila always falls back on her p...]]>

There is always a contingency in place. It makes them the most formidable adversary yet.  If this is Bob Lee's final fight, then it's a good one.  A significant portion of the penultimate hour for the series focused on the Swagger marriage.

After a string of mediocre installments, Suits Season 8 Episode 8 was a return to form.  It's difficult for a show to throw in new hurdles for the characters after eight seasons, but Louis' storyline got a much-needed jolt of life.  If you watch Suits online, you know we've witnessed his struggles as a teenager and an adult since the show kicked off all those years ago.  He's always in an ambivalent state of mind, but he oozed confidence when he and Sheila showed up at...]]>

It was all about getting out of one's comfort zone. The case of the week almost seemed secondary on Elementary Season 6 Episode 19. Still, it did add up to something diverting, none the less. I'm in favor of any excuse to bring in one of Sherlock's Irregulars, and this episode featured two. First off was mathematician Harland Emple, who last visited on Elementary Season 3 Episode 3. The socially awkward genius (is there any other kind) hired Sherlock and Joan to fin...]]>

Meanwhile, June and Althea were trying to recover from the rampage of the storm.
