Review: Preacher Season 2 Episode 7 “Pig”

In regard to structure, this episode of 'Preacher' is all over the place, with a mildly amusing sub-plot with Cassidy with some form of discussion over his immortality, an unnecessary sequence revolving around Tulip and her flashbacks to the ordeal she suffered last week that felt out of character, and Jesse fitting in somewhere in … Continue reading Review: Preacher Season 2 Episode 7 “Pig”

Review: Ozark Season 1 Episode 6 “Book of Ruth”

As multiple storylines converge the various threats against the Byrde family begin to stack up resulting in exciting and tense confrontations, well written and brilliantly performed. These also have ripple effects, with the writers keenly highlighting the implications one man can have on the entire town, exemplified by the excellent dynamic created between Ruth and … Continue reading Review: Ozark Season 1 Episode 6 “Book of Ruth”

Review: Orange Is The New Black Season 5 Episode 12 “Tattoo You”

Motherhood, relationships and the choice between personal and social responsibility have been frequently visited throughout this season. In some cases they have provided proper, impactful character arcs, while others are overshadowed by the chaos. This episode features the same mixed bag, as while it was nice revisiting Piper and Alex's relationship, especially through the flashbacks, … Continue reading Review: Orange Is The New Black Season 5 Episode 12 “Tattoo You”

Review: Orange Is The New Black Season 5 Episode 10 ‘The Reverse Midas Touch”

Placing such a prime focus upon Piscatella and his motivations should have granted the show an opportunity to move away from the meanderings of the riot and negotiations and revealed deeper layers to the character as representative of the guards. Yet, the show instead just reinforces what we already know, with very surface-level information that … Continue reading Review: Orange Is The New Black Season 5 Episode 10 ‘The Reverse Midas Touch”

Review: Orange Is The New Black Season 5 Episode 9 “The Tightening”

While the horror stylisation this episode employs keeps the episode interesting in brief instances, using tropes both humorously and to create suspense, it doesn't elevate the episode as a whole. Instead, the remainder is simply meandering filler, with little getting accomplished at all despite the negotiations occurring. The flashbacks resonate with the idea of freedom … Continue reading Review: Orange Is The New Black Season 5 Episode 9 “The Tightening”

Review: Orange Is The New Black Season 5 Episode 8 “Tied to the Tracks”

Again 'Orange Is The New Black' squanders its ability to create emotion with its structure that lacks clear arcs and cohesion. Instead we are randomly alerted to the drama and issues of some characters lives that feel underdeveloped, suddenly picked off the editing floor and thrown against the wall, hoping they would stick. Daya's story … Continue reading Review: Orange Is The New Black Season 5 Episode 8 “Tied to the Tracks”
