Awesomely awesome reviews of the best series tv has to offer

Top Chef All Stars LA

Top Chef: All-Stars L.A.

Look, if you've seen one Top Chef, you've pretty much seen all Top Chefs. This is actually season 17 of the show, so they've essentially been to every "food" town and...
Solar Opposites

Solar Opposites: Season 1

Look, I've never done cocaine. I know, I know. Lame! But from what little I do know about the drug (mostly from crime films and Harry Ellis in Die Hard), it seems to me...
Run: Season 1

Run: Season 1

This show is hot garbage. There is no other way to describe it. Just when I thought I couldn't be more disappointed with its admittedly intriguing premise, I felt more...
Homecoming Season 2

Homecoming: Season 2

The first season Homecoming was based directly on a homecoming. Now, the second season of Homecoming plots its own course, taking on a narrative completely independent...
Mr. Mercedes

Mr. Mercedes: Season 1

It seems that there's Stephen King content everywhere you turn. Even on this weirdo Audience network, which is some sort of AT&T and Direct TV mashup Frankenstein of a...
Dave: Season 1

Dave: Season 1

You kind of know what you're getting yourself into when you watch a show starring a dude whose rap name is Lil Dicky. Dave Burd, the titular character in Dave, is a former...
Upload: Season 1

Upload: Season 1

I ain't gonna lie. This show is kinda trash. Worse yet, it's unoriginal trash trying to pass itself off as original. First, the name: Upload. I mean the guy who created...
Westworld Season 3

Westworld: Season 3

What a mess of a season of television Westworld Season 3 was. You'd hope I'd follow that up with "but is was a beautiful mess." But I won't. Because it was just a plain...
Better Call Saul Season 5

Better Call Saul: Season 5

The little brother becomes a man. Better Call Saul has always been the also-ran series to its predecessor, Breaking Bad. The series has been a slow burn, to be sure, but...
Legion Season 3

Legion: Season 3

There has truly never been a TV series like Legion. A giant mind-fuck, acid trip of a show that seems to create the rules on a minute-by-minute basis. Completely unknowable...
Briarpatch

Briarpatch: Season 1

I wanted to like this show. Every week I tuned in and thought, "This is gonna be the week this thing really turns the corner and drops some serious TV bombs on my brain...
The Plot Against America

The Plot Against America

I read Philip Roth's The Plot Against America back when it came out in 2004. Despite my general fascination with alternative history in literature, I'm often left cold...
Escape at Dannemora

Escape at Dannemora

I feel like the 1970s were chock-full of prison escape movies. And maybe the 80s. And sometimes on the television in the 90s and the 2000s. Proving Americans' undying...
