Sharp Objects: ‘Closer’ Review

With only two episodes left in the season, the characters in Sharp Objects are progressing, though the plot seems to stay at a stand-still.

‘The Passenger’ was the frustrating ending to an increasingly frustrating season, but not without some highlights.

Westworld: ‘Vanishing Point’ Review

Westworld basically repeats the same story structure it used last week in ‘Kiksuya’ with some minor alterations, and it makes for an average episode.

Westworld: ‘Kiksuya’ Review

Westworld’s largely non-linear plot structure is one of the reasons the series stands out amongst a sea of other high-quality dramas, but it can work to the show’s detriment when not handled effectively.  This leads to the only negative aspect of this week’s episode as it kills almost any momentum that the series built up ...
