American Horror Story: Coven Review

Asylum is a tough act to follow, but Coven stays true to everything that makes American Horror Story one of the greatest shows on television.

American Horror Story Coven “Bitchcraft” Review

Oct 17, 2013

American Horror Story, just as a concept, is far more interesting than most shows currently on the market. Other shows have tried, but American Horror Story has stuck with its anthology format, each season being an entirely different story with none of the characters or situations from the others. The first season kept me on edge, constantly wondering whether I...

The Simpsons “Treehouse of Horror XXIV” Review

Oct 11, 2013

For the 24th year in a row, The Simpsons offers up three tales of howl-iday terror and delight. Spooky. Well, not especially, given that much like last year’s offering, our annual Treehouse of Horror episode is going out three weeks too soon. I have no idea why they’d air it so early in October, especially since now the series doesn’t return...

CSI “Take the Money and Run” Review

Oct 8, 2013

A violent and elaborate heist rips off the Four Kings casino for well over one skrillion dollars. Grand Theft Auto V probably made them do it. The suspect tries to escape via motorcycle, and after a thrilling chase he’s shot off his ride. Mystery solved, right? Unfortunately for whoever it is that pays for the CSI team’s OT, it turns out that the...
