Homeland: Black Ops Jesus

Saul prepares to go on the lam. Carrie gets some unexpected news about Franny. Quinn runs into an old friend from a different life. The stingray leads Quinn to a diner. While the sign  says (or has been digitally enhanced…

The Americans: Fake it till you make it

This week on The Americans, Elizabeth proves once again how much self-awareness she lacks (all of it). Stan and Aderholt might want to rethink their recruiting techniques. The noose tightens around Oleg, and we get a surprise blast from the…

Homeland: The wrong horse

We’re a fly on the wall listening to Carrie explain herself to the shrink she must appeal to in order to see her daughter. This might be more fun if she spoke English instead of Stock Phraseeze. She talks about…

Once Upon a Time: Boys behaving badly

This week on Once, the writers bastardize Beowulf (which, in their defense, couldn’t be made much worse than it already was). Also this week, Rumple tries twice to prevent his kids from becoming assholes like him, and is sort…

The Americans: Paigeland

After mercy-executing Elizabeth’s  fav asset, she and Philip meet Gabriel to hand over the virus sample. Gabriel must be thrilled to have yet another deadly pathogen on his hands. What could possibly go wrong this time? Philip can’t quite get…

Homeland: Treason season

We all agree Dar Adal has to die. The only question is who takes him out and how. Will Carrie beat him to death with Franny’s stuffed rabbit (stuffed with the coin-stuffed sock Peter used to sock Tommy)? Will Quinn,…

The Americans: Meet the Eckharts

Amber Waves, the season five premiere of The Americans opens with the wheat crop in the Soviet Union failing. The Jennings, a Potemkin Village of a family, may be nearing their own implosion. There’s the Paige/Matthew romance, Mischa on…

Powerless: No means no!

It’s cold season in Charm City! No, it’s not the season where everyone passes viral infections to each other. It’s when all the ice-theme superheroes–Mr. Freeze, Killer Frost, Captain Cold, etc–come to town and ruin the weather. Emily insists that…

Riverdale: Daddy Lessons

I can’t even make fun of this week’s pretentious narration because we opened with a dream sequence where all the Riverdale characters are dressed like their retro counterparts. Jughead is even wearing his crown hat! But like all dream sequences,…

Homeland: Dar's game

When a character’s first name is spelled D-A-R and it’s not short for “Darling,” the writers aren’t being subtle. “Imminent Risk”, the current episode, proves Dar is more evil than we imagined, and possibly smarter—but maybe not as smart as…

David Letterman says a thing

Retired talk show icon David Letterman and his beard are calling on comedy to save us all from “crazy” Donald Trump. But is comedy up to the task? This and more will be part of an upcoming New York magazine…

Riverdale: Who's a rock star? I am!

Jughead tells us that fear is the most basic human emotion. You know what’s basic? These stupid narrations. Part of what keeps me from taking this show seriously is Jughead’s wannabe Truman Capote narrations. He doesn’t even have a good…

Homeland: Some deep rabbit hole

The United States of Homelandia didn’t elect Trump, but this season’s Homeland captures our paranoia. Homeland gives us an almost Trumpian fantasy of intelligence agencies running amok — or are they?  At midpoint, it’s not certain who is behind what,…
