Suits: ‘The Statue’ Review

Written by: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes Suits' new episodes this week moved some character's stories forward, but still continues Harvey's very odd romance.

Preacher: ‘Viktor’ Review

Written by: Mathew 'JJ' Simoes This week's episode of Preacher continues takes the New Orleans story in interesting directions, but falters with the Eugene centered sub-plot.
