  • The Alienist 1×4 Review: These Bloody Thoughts

    Four episodes in, The Alienist has offered viewers some important information about each lead, and now we can all wait and see how (and if) they grow as the series progresses. In ‘These Bloody Thoughts’, the killer wasn’t shy about letting Kriezler’s team know he was steps ahead of the good guys. Read our before […]


  • The X-Files 11×06 Review: Kitten

    Well, we were promised more background on Skinner this season, and while “Kitten” was a generally good episode, it also wasn’t really what I expected in regards to learning more about Skinner. Weirdly enough, even though I hoped for more about Skinner’s recent history and what’s going through his head with this whole Smoking Man […]


  • The Alienist 1×3 Review: Silver Smile

    This week’s episode of The Alienist, titled ‘Silver Smile,’ showed our team of investigators closing in on a lead. They’re still far away and things grew tense because the murderer is definitely toying with them. Read our before commenting. Please do not copy our content in whole to other websites.

  • The X-Files 11×05 Review: Ghouli

    I’m not quite sure why I’ve been struggling to write my review of this week’s X-Files episode “Ghouli”, but I have a feeling it’s because I don’t think I liked it as much as I was supposed to. “Ghouli” certainly got off on the right foot; the opening scene had just the right amount of […]


  • The X-Files 11×04 Review: The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat

    This week’s rollicking good time of an episode, “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat”, was another one in the vein of “Jose Chung’s from Outer Space” and season 10’s “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster”…but as silly as it was, it also made some really good (if harsh) points about the current state of society. […]


  • Vikings 5×10 Review: Moments of Vision

    After so many seasons of watching the Vikings literally charge into battle, “Moments of Vision” was a very different – and at times poignant – take on their latest engagement. Unfortunately, one of my biggest complaints about last week’s “A Simple Story” went unanswered, so that even though “Moments of Vision” was visually striking, pretty […]



  • The X-Files 11×03 Review: Plus One

    While I wasn’t fond of the season 11 premiere, it’s safe to say that The X-Files is back on track with “Plus One”, which was a great follow-up to last week’s “This”. I’ll get this out of the way – perhaps I missed something, but the one thing that confused me about “Plus One” was […]


  • Vikings 5×09 Review: A Simple Story

    If there’s one thing to be said about “A Simple Story”, it’s that this episode drives the Vikings season 5 plot forward – and does so very, very quickly. Normally I would say that episodes that move things along the way “A Simple Story” did are great, but I’m still not fond of the time […]


  • The X-Files 11×02 Review: This

    It’s been a really long time since an episode of The X-Files dangled something so darn hopeful in my face…and then snatched it away so quickly, while still delivering a really, really good episode. “This” was all that and maybe a little bit more. When Langly appeared on Mulder’s phone, my first thought was “YES! […]
