8.2/10 100% The X-Files: Season 11 Episode 3 "It was a nice mix of creepy old casework and newfound perspective. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jan 18, 2018
8/10 100% The X-Files: Season 11 Episode 2 ""This" managed to get Season 11 on track with an episode that was both a one-off adventure and a mythology episode designed to connect the past to the present. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jan 11, 2018
8.8/10 83% The Chi: Season 1 (TV, 2018) "Its characters are rich, the on-location production delivers authenticity and electricity, and the each element of the ensemble provides a gripping gateway into the world of the show. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jan 7, 2018
5.5/10 33% The X-Files: Season 11 Episode 1 "Yes, the strangest truth of all is that the show that basically invented the modern procedural (case/monster-of-the-week mixed with serialized background noise/mythology) has now lost its serialized mojo. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jan 5, 2018
9/10 83% Elementary: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) "Jonny Lee Miller and Natalie Dormer did some excellent work here and managed to encapsulate, and subvert, an entire history in one evening of television " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Jan 4, 2018
9/10 91% Mr. Robot: Season 3 Episode 10 ""shutdown -r" certainly followed many of the rules of an endgame given all the "back to the start" twists it brought into play, but it also worked as the jumping off point for a fourth season adventure. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Dec 14, 2017
8.4/10 64% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 8 "The midseason premiere held a bunch of intense, cool moments. It's just too bad that nothing actually came to a close and we're still left hanging with regards to so many stories. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Dec 11, 2017
7/10 79% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 7 "While "Time for After" contained a few crucial moments, as one would hope for/expect from a penultimate midseason episode, it also focused waaay to much on Eugene and his "will he?/won't he?" crisis of conscience. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Dec 3, 2017
8/10 100% Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 5 (TV, 2017) "Agents of SHIELD went big for its Season 5 story, and while there was plenty of engaging action and team-building turmoil there was also a sense of tragic transience. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Dec 3, 2017
8/10 100% Vikings: Season 5 (TV, 2017) "Vikings gave us a lot to chew on during its Season 5 opener as the aftermath of Sigurd's death has led to tension between the remaining brothers, a boat trip to beyond for Floki, and Lagertha confronting the man who tried to secretly overthrow her. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 30, 2017
7.8/10 83% The Get Down: Season 2 (TV, 2017) "For all the show's bluster, you care about the characters and their individual journeys... " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 28, 2017
6.8/10 33% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 6 "The Walking Dead spread itself pretty thin this week by giving us a break in the action (Rosita and her trusty rocket launcher notwithstanding) so that we could catch up with everyone outside of the Sanctuary. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 26, 2017
8.7/10 88% Godless: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "It gets way more right than wrong as an outstanding cast, memorable characters, engaging arcs, beautiful shots of the majestic frontier, and one hell of a finale (oh yes, it's pretty savage) bring us a uniquely bewitching and exciting story. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 21, 2017
7.4/10 100% Marco Polo: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Still not a great series, Marco Polo continued to impress with its grandeur and scope and the production levels are still a big notch in the plus column. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 21, 2017
8.4/10 82% Marvel's Runaways: Season 1 (TV, 2017-2018) "With its second and third chapters, Marvel's Runaways establishes itself as a fun, thrilling mystery that awesomely balances teen angst, family drama, and a gripping conspiracy involving scary supernatural scheming. Oh, and a dinosaur! " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 21, 2017
80% The X-Files: Season 6 (TV, 1998-1999) ""Drive" in turn becomes a memorably scary X-Files episode - not for any particular monster or alien presence, but because of the perhaps most frightening element of the show's world ever: mankind itself. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 21, 2017
7.7/10 83% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 5 "It was really cool to see a slightly different side of Negan this week in "The Big Scary U." We've basically been watching one side of this character over and over for an entire season, the same mannerisms and messaging, and it's been a disservice. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 19, 2017
5.8/10 71% American Horror Story: Cult Episode 11 "Cult continued with Kai's boring endgame misogyny, and turned everything into a screaming showdown between him and Ally as they verbally volleyed tired memes and platitudes, undercutting some of the more interesting ideas that the season began with. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 15, 2017
7.8/10 88% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 4 "Parts of "Some Guy" (including the title itself) were a drag, but the overall story, and consequences, for Ezekiel resonated well. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 12, 2017
6/10 80% American Horror Story: Cult Episode 10 "Cult sputtered and stalled here right at the end of the season, with one more episode to go, as Kai's story became overly murky and his motivations difficult to track. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 8, 2017
7/10 52% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 3 "Rick and Daryl's action moments were fun, but this chapter still stands as the season's most exasperating outing so far. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 5, 2017
8.5/5 100% Bates Motel: Season 5 (TV, 2017) "This final season was thoughtful and provocative end to a complex multi-year tragedy. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 4, 2017
8.8/10 99% Alias Grace: Miniseries (TV, 2017) "Alias Grace is a gripping, haunting series that, while not dealing with ghosts or the paranormal, definitely contains a looming specter. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 2, 2017
7.2/10 100% American Horror Story: Cult Episode 9 "Watching Evan Peters playing more flashback roles... was fun, though again it's all still very muddled as to whether or not Kai believes the crazy stuff he preaches or if he's just playing the role of a cult leader - complete with random acts of lunacy. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Nov 1, 2017
7.6/10 50% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 2 "With some cool John Carpenter-style music, some chaotic action, and a nice deep cut twist at the end, "The Damned" was a better overall episode than the season premiere. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Oct 29, 2017
6.8/10 77% American Horror Story: Cult Episode 8 "Cult offered up a cool new take on Ally this week, but the rest of it buckled under the burden of this season's trend of never showing us the truth right away. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Oct 25, 2017
8.2/10 80% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 3 (TV, 2017) "Fear the Walking Dead more solidly found its tone and voice this season by embracing the arid landscape, ramping up the human-on-human conflict, and rallying around Kim Dickens' anti-hero mom, Madison, as the driving character. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Oct 24, 2017
7.3/10 88% The Walking Dead: Season 8 Episode 1 "This was a good set-up episode, but because we were only given the initial stages of this conflict, the stakes fell a bit flat. The true weight and consequences are coming, but we have to wait. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Oct 22, 2017
8.5/10 100% Burn Notice: Season 5 (TV, 2011) ""Company Man" was a fun, curveball of an episode but I don't exactly know where it's placed our characters. " ‐ IGN Movies

Posted Oct 19, 2017

Posted Oct 18, 2017
8.8/10 96% Mindhunter: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "To truly understand the mentality of madness, this team of investigators and academics had to go deep into the trenches of some horrifically specific savagery in a way that no one ever considered before - and it makes for a fascinating, spellbinding ride. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Oct 16, 2017
8/10 100% Fear the Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 16 "Some of the interpersonal moments didn't quite feel right in Fear the Walking Dead's Season 3 close-out, but using the dam as the centerpiece for the endgame, while also introducing a new villain into the mix, made for an exciting finale. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Oct 15, 2017

Posted Oct 12, 2017

Posted Oct 4, 2017
7.8/10 77% Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later (TV, 2017) "When Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Laters strikes oil, it's a geyser of laughs. Too often though it's meandering and only moderately funny. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Oct 3, 2017
7.2/10 100% Big Mouth: Season 1 (TV, 2017) "The voice work is strong and inspired, the friendships are believable and, for the most part, the lewdness is clever. " ‐ IGN Movies
Posted Oct 1, 2017
8.3/10 100% American Horror Story: Cult Episode 4 ""11/9" revealed crucial backstory and a fun twist that could greatly alter the story going forward.
