"Act of God" was one of the stronger installments of the season. It was also one of the most heartbreaking as  9-1-1: Lone Star Season 1 Episode 4 gave us our first tragic death of someone while the team was on a call. The use of a tornado provided us with some great shots and effects, and it gave the series the chance to flex some of its muscles and its budget. Sometimes themes can be a bit hokey, but in this case, the overarching thematic focus on faith was suitable. It a...]]>

<![CDATA[The Plot Thickens]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Barkskins/Season-1/episode-3/reviews/The-Plot-Thickens
There was a whole lot of intrigue going on out in the middle of the Quebec woods. There was both big geopolitical intrigue and more intimate personal intrigue on Barkskins Season 1 Episode 3 and Barkskins Season 1 Episode 4. The series continued to delve into why the massacre was staged. Previously, it appeared that English barrel maker Cooke was simply trying to drive French settlers off the land so that he could buy it cheaply using French proxies. But it was reveal...]]>

<![CDATA[Linger]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Roswell-New-Mexico/Season-2/episode-11/reviews/Linger
The stakes are high on Roswell, New Mexico Season 2 Episode 11.  With Alex's life in danger, Michael will stop at nothing to get him back even if it means risking his own. And if one crisis wasn't enough Max and Kyle's investigation into Project Sheperd leads them right to Flint Mane's doorstep. Could it all be connected? Let's start by talking about Kyle Valenti.  You could also refer to him as the character who makes huge sacrifices for his friends, despite being co...]]>

<![CDATA[Access is Power]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Snowpiercer/Season-1/episode-3/reviews/Access-is-Power
The real detective work kicks in on Snowpiercer Season 1 Episode 3, but there are a few key questions that have been left unasked by the world's only homicide detective. The main one being: WHO was the first murder victim? Shouldn't that have been one of the first things discussed? How might Sean Wise be similar to the first victim? Why was the murderer targeting (and castrating) the victims? Honestly, this unasked question distracted me a lot more than Fight Night did. ...]]>

<![CDATA[Are You Leading or Am I?]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Killing-Eve/Season-3/episode-8/reviews/Are-You-Leading-or-Am-I
The season finale of Killing Eve Season 3 encapsulated so much of what makes Killing Eve unlike any other show on the air. On Killing Eve Season 3 Episode 8, we progressed further than ever before in the relationship between Villanelle and Eve, while discovering what happened to Kenny in his final moments. Everyone's on edge. These characters have always been hard to predict, but the heightened stakes make it impossible. Villanelle's undeniably changed since she killed her ...]]>

<![CDATA[City of Angels Season 1 Episode 6 Review]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Penny-Dreadful-City-of-Angels/Season-1/episode-6/reviews/City-of-Angels-Season-1-Episode-6-Review
It's hard to see how Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Season 1 Episode 6 was meant to be seen as a cohesive script. Perhaps, it could be argued that it has a unifying theme of turning points. Maybe, if you squint really hard, there is a sense of setting up a finale. After all, there are only two episodes left in the season, and one would assume the finale will be something grand and dramatic. However, for a season three-quarters done, it's a bit weird that its three major plot threa...]]>

<![CDATA[Rebellion Dogs]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Hightown/Season-1/episode-3/reviews/Rebellion-Dogs
That was a nice change of pace.  Hightown Season 1 Episode 3 was bursting at the seams with rich storylines, and I hate to admit it, but I'm starting to warm to Jackie.  Monica Raymund is clearly relishing playing this character, and it shows in her performances every single episode. My main problem with Jackie is that she's been manipulative towards everyone in her circle.  Based on the way Devon spoke to her, it sounds like she's been that way for years. There's a driv...]]>

<![CDATA[Grand Final]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/RuPaul-s-Drag-Race/Season-12/episode-14/reviews/Grand-Final
The queens came, they conquered, and now one has walked away with the crown! Despite social-distancing across the country, the final three lipsynced virtually head-to-head on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 12 Episode 14. No live audience to cheer them on; only green screens and filters to support their performances. This finale will go down in the record books as a first for reality TV. Before the queens lipsynced for the crown, there was some hesitation about how RuPaul and the ...]]>

<![CDATA[Not One of The Cool Kids]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Days-of-our-Lives/Season-55/episode-177/reviews/Not-One-of-The-Cool-Kids
The rest of Salem needs to take lessons from the way Justin and Steve are handling their rivalry over Kayla. Sure, both of these men have had their moments. Justin's insecurity and Steve's boneheaded decision to give up because Justin was never turned into a bad guy were low points. But on the whole, this is a story about adults trying to do the best thing. Some other people's problems on Days of Our Lives during the week of 5-25-20, not so much. Even though it was utterly p...]]>

Beginning Sunday, May 31, AMC will air Quiz, a three-part drama from writer James Graham and director Stephen Frears detailing the meteoric rise of Britain's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and the stunning cheating scandal that threatened to tear it down. With clever writing, an excellent cast, and inspired direction, Quiz propels you through the episodes with breakneck speed. By the time Who Wants to Be a Millionaire landed in the US, it was already a phenomenon in the UK. Historic ra...]]>

On Council of Dads Season 1 Episode 5, the Perrys celebrate the holidays without Scott for the first time.  From Halloween to Christmas, their traditions are changing. As Larry said, they have to figure out their new traditions now that the tradition-keeper is gone.  But what does that look like? On Halloween, not much changed for the Perry family. They still dress up and go trick-or-treating.  But this year, Theo is escorted home by a police officer. Who also happen...]]>

<![CDATA[The Straw That Broke the Camel's Back]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/In-The-Dark/Season-2/episode-7/reviews/The-Straw-That-Broke-the-Camel-s-Back
Murphy just mucked it up, and Darnell may pay the price for it. Two of the biggest takeaways from In The Dark Season 2 Episode 7, is that Max is Murphy's kryptonite, and she will bring everyone and everything down around her to keep him safe, and Ben was a problem, and somebody had to deal with him. We're trudging along and over halfway through the season, but there's no telling where the series will take us from here. As much as Murphy is fighting against it, she's shown as...]]>

<![CDATA[Existential Ennui]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Blindspot/Season-5/episode-3/reviews/Existential-Ennui
Weller and company have got to put together the pieces faster before they all crack up. The stress of being on the run was getting to them all on Blindspot Season 5 Episode 3, except maybe Rich. And if Rich is the most stable member of a team, that squad is in big trouble. They certainly can't wait for Weitz to save them.  He's showing no sign of growing a spine, and Madeline got even further inside his head in this episode. It kinds of makes you wonder why s...]]>

<![CDATA[Wherever You Go]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Burden-of-Truth/Season-3/episode-2/reviews/Wherever-You-Go
On Burden of Truth Season 3 Episode 2, Joanna's attempt to get Kodie's kids back does not go well. Joanna is wracking up failures, and she is not happy about it. Plus, this one is personal (though we still don't know why). The writers are not giving us much to go on for the history between Joanna and Kodie. There is a story there. We get tiny flashbacks that are hints of more, but it seems like they want to drag this out and keep us guessing. While frustrating, it is good writing. It...]]>

<![CDATA[The Garden]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/The-100/Season-7/episode-2/reviews/The-Garden
Going back to where it all started doesn't mean you will end up in the same place, but there's also no way to escape it. At least if you're in Skyring. It is safe to say that history will always have a way of repeating itself.  During The 100 Season 7 Episode 2, the story explored the time Octavia and Diyoza spent on Skyring after they went into the Anomaly last time. Echo, Hope, and Gabriel arrived at Skyring and faced their future, determining what's next. And for th...]]>

<![CDATA[Reagan]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Mrs-America/Season-1/episode-9/reviews/Reagan-43640
Everything came to a hilt on Mrs. America Season 1 Episode 9. While the episode was not as epic as a finale usually is, "Reagan," was still satisfying, and gave us some closure. Particularly with Alice's arc, although there were a few storylines that left us with unanswered questions. Alice's character revolutionized when she finally stood up to Phyllis. She was the most developed character throughout the series. It was evident when she drove away from Phyllis's home, p...]]>

The Legends have done it again. Or should I say the writers, producers, and director, as DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Episode 13 was one of the finest hours of the Arrowverse shows, maybe even one of the best of any show we have seen this year? It was a delightful combination of humor, action, meta, shocking twists, and standout character moments that have all come to be known as staples of DC's Legends of Tomorrow. Plus, it brought everyone back to life, and who doesn't want tha...]]>

It may not have been the most action-packed episode, but viewers did get the general idea of the show's direction by the end of the Stargirl Season 1 Episode 2. For the remainder of Stargirl Season 1, it looks like Courtney and Pat will track down the members of the Injustice Society of America and bring them to, well, justice. What is still unclear is who will join them in their efforts, as the second installment was once again 'The Courtney and Pat Show' with guest appearances fro...]]>

Despite all of the excitement about new streaming services, nobody but Apple TV+ rolled out with a relatively full slate of originals. Well, it's HBO's turn to move full streamer with the release of HBO Max, and the only original scripted series for adults launching with the service is Love Life. It's not clear why this was the series chosen to lure eyes to the netlet, but it could have something to do with the appeal of the series lead, Anna Kendrick. Kendrick stars on Love...]]>

Noa and Daniel's trouble in paradise continued on The Baker and the Beauty Season 1 Episode 7.  Absence is supposed to make the heart grow fonder, but that wasn't the case for Noa. While Daniel couldn't wait to reunite with Noa after her trip, time away from him helped Noa realize that she's taken her eye off the prize. Instead of seeing how much better her life has become with Daniel in it, Noa only saw the negatives.  And she's not entirely wrong -- things haven't b...]]>

Relationships and bonds are starting to form, and we're catching our first glimpse at the dynamics that will probably be the most notable in this series. The team is coming together and behaving like a family on 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 1 Episode 3, and that includes sibling rivalry and tension between TK and Judd. Every series needs a bromance, am I right? The series is an ensemble cast, but namely, the same characters carry the bigger personal arcs. Owen is the lead, and it...]]>

Kai finally got out of Ike's doghouse. The chief sent her undercover again in quite dangerous conditions on Almost Paradise Season 1 Episode 9. She proved she had great investigative instincts and even managed to manipulate veteran agent Alex into providing her additional backup amid a gathering of Asian triad bosses and foot soldiers. Now, if only she and Alex could stop pushing each other's buttons. Give Dean Devlin credit for keeping them essentially being a big brot...]]>

Well, the honeymoon was short. Snowpiercer Season 1 Episode 2 throws us into the harshest realities of train life without so much as a, "Hey, you ready?" Although there are still a lot of logistics questions -- which I'll try to keep to a minimum for the sake of the fact I'm enjoying the more fantastical elements of the show, we actually get a bunch of answers to the most obvious mechanical ones. In terms of the social fabric, there's a lot of messy bits that only seem to get messie...]]>

<![CDATA[Beautiful Monster]]> https://www.tvbuzer.com/tv-shows/Killing-Eve/Season-3/episode-7/reviews/Beautiful-Monster
This season is starting to take shape.  Killing Eve Season 3 Episode 7 was Killing Eve at its best. The main plots were at the forefront, the writing for the characters felt genuine, and there was a lot of black comedy.  Killing Eve Season 3 is shaping up to be my least favorite so far. The show has meandered away from what made it great in the first place: The complicated relationship between Eve and the woman she's been pursuing since the show's inception. That's the hook of ...]]>

I have to admit that I probably wouldn't have predicted any of the significant developments on Penny Dreadful: City of Angels Season 1 Episode 5 but probably should've. In a script that seemed to throw a hodge-podge of elements together, the theme seems to be a fracturing of strong bonds. The Vega family is splintering with Mateo giving in to the allure of the Pachucos, and Josefina driven to Sister Molly's temple for solace. Lewis and Tiago's partnership is showing some wea...]]>

Cracking this case is going to put Jackie through the wringer.  Our hard-partying lead was in over her head on Hightown Season 1 Episode 2 as she started to understand that there was more to Sherry's death than the cops know.  The beauty of following Jackie as she tries to prove there is more to the case is that we know she's right, and it highlights how people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol when it comes to speaking about evidence.  Jackie sounds like she's reac...]]>

Spill all the tea. Dish all the dirt. Check all the WiFi connections. The queens have reunited for the first-ever Drag Race virtual reunion on RuPaul's Drag Race Season 12 Episode 13. No topic was off the table now that the queens have watched every episode from RuPaul's Drag Race Season 12. Though, there was no physical table since they have to social-distance. (This was a first for the series.) Drag Race isn't afraid to try something new. They've shaken up formats in the p...]]>

Neal Loguiduice is a piece of work.  Defending Jacob Season 1 Episode 7 was the best episode of this Apple TV+ series to date, and it was all down to the tension inside the courtroom.  Who could have guessed all of the revelations that came to light would happen in front of everyone?  Pablo Schreiber is killing it as Neal. He's the character we love to hate, but his obsession with taking Andy down is becoming too obvious.  His actions on "Job" will have caused irrep...]]>

Jess is a badass, and her friends can never argue otherwise. She had a close call on In The Dark Season 2 Episode 6, nearly losing her life for the sole reason of being looked upon as untrustworthy, but she used her skills to save her life and Nia's. Of course, Nia's days may be numbered after Murphy's phone call to Darnell. Felix and Murphy meant well by keeping Jess in the dark about the recent developments in their job description, and their reasoning behind it was sound...]]>

As amazing, insightful, and provocative as The Good Fight is, sometimes it gets things wrong. This was one of those times, as The Good Fight Season 4 Episode 6 was one of the most cringeworthy and offensive installments of the series to date. Parts of the episode were barely watchable, and the toxic rhetoric the episode spewed enraged me at every turn. There are some things viewers are asked by The Powers That Be to overlook or instances where we're asked to suspend our di...]]>
