The third week of the Fall 2016 premiere season brings a veritable cornucopia of new network shows—most of them far better than I expected.
In this week's installment of "First Look/Last Look," it's a bit of a mixed bag.
Every year in “First Look/Last Look,” I pan for TV gold in the fetid riverbed of the new fall season. This year, the first batch—surprisingly—is all gold.
"Battle of the Bastards" is a magnificent hour of television. But is it a great episode of Game of Thrones?
"No One" ever thinks they're the bad guy, but there comes a time when everyone has to ask themselves the question.
This week, we see all the broken people trying to figure out what can be built from the shattered pieces of the past.
An awkward and underwhelming episode focuses on the question of family loyalty.
"Terrible things happen for a reason," we are told in "The Door." But is that really a comforting thought?
In "Book of the Stranger," the ladies of Game of Thrones are gettin' in formation—cause they slay.
In "Oathbreaker," we are reminded that the game of thrones is largely a game of words. Control the stories, and you can control the world.
