the Walking Dead: "What Happened and What's Going On" (Season 5, Episode 9)

"It went the way it had to, the way it was always going to." That thought succinctly sums up this entire series. They're rubbing it in our face tonight, but this is one of the most beautifully filmed episodes the show has ever seen.



12 Monkeys: "Atari" (Season 1, Episode 4)

This week we get an engaging enough little "ship in a bottle" episode. It's trying  to be clever and more or less is, though weighed down by some questionable pacing choices and the relative thinness of its future world building. Nonetheless, this show is actually trying to interesting stuff. That's better than average for SyFy fare.  


Gotham: "Welcome Back, Jim Gordon" (Season 1, Episode 13)

And you weren't awful. Stupid, yes, awful, no. Way to go, Jim. It may be faint praise, but after the last two episodes, not being awful is almost good. It helps that most of the side bits are serviceable as well.

You were minimally adequate, big guy. Baby steps, right?   


12 Monkeys: "Mentally Divergent" (Season 1, Episode 2)

I still don't know quite what to make of this series. It tried out a little more personality in this episode and does have aspects that could be interesting. It's also got some stylistic problems I already find irritating. The resulting whole is, indeed, mentally divergent.
