“Late Phases” is also really good and deserves a mention (and a watch).

For a CBS drama, I’ve been pleasantly surprised - oddball cold opens, weird camera angles, and that last episode...yeeesh. (And here I am not talking about the parents killing one child to protect another, I am talking about Katja Herbers breaking down at the weight of everything she’s encountered that day, and the Read more

Yes - the look on the mom’s face was “don’t make me finish this sentence,” and then one of the Scooby-squad (synod? conclave?) adopted their best “broadcast TV making the subtext into text” voices, and said “They killed him.”

The mother said something like “I know we’re supposed to love all our kids equally, and we do, but when one of them is threatened...” and then left a very pregnant pause. She wasn’t going to say more because there was a police officer in the next room, but they all made the connection, and I think Kristen even muttered Read more

This has been a really smart show so far. There was a point in the first episode where I feared it was going all in on the religious “demons are real” aspects, but it ended up striking a good balance of solving the core mystery while also leaving some aspect unexplained. I don’t know how long they can keep that up Read more

You know, it’s cool that we have something slightly akin to Luke Cage vs. Evil The Guy From Person Of Interest, and I may watch this, but this just makes me want ACTUAL Luke Cage vs. Evil The Guy From Person Of Interest. Like, can we talk to Marvel or something about a miniseries, or...?

I started watching this for Katja Herbers (she was also great in Manhattan), and have been pleasantly surprised.  I don’t normally care for CBS dramas, but this one has done a good job of creating a sort of X-Files feel with monsters/problems of the week that are building towards something bigger.

The best horror sequel is, as always, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare. It’s a horror film about making a horror film, starring the actual actress who starred in the original horror film being terrorized by the monster from that horror film. It’s so meta, it’s amazing.

It’s a residence at the University of Toronto! All girls too, with fire places, common rooms etc. The suffocating scene was apparently filmed in the tower (which is now blocked off... for reasons no one was really able to tell us froshies.) It is apparently also haunted, but I did not see any paranormal activity. Read more

The whole time I was reading this list I was thinking that Pieces takes place on a college campus, but no way will they put that on the list and then I saw it at it’s rightful place as Number 1!!!
