Doctor Who: The Visitation

"I have appeared before some of the most hostile audiences in the world. Today I met death in a cellar. But I have never been so afraid until I met the man with the scythe."

It's been a long time since Doctor Who did a period piece.

Star Trek The Next Generation: Who Watches the Watchers?

"Millennia ago, they abandoned their belief in the supernatural. Now you are asking me to sabotage that achievement, to send them back into the Dark Ages of superstition and ignorance and fear?"

Anthropologists on a world covered by the Prime Directive experience technological issues. Their holographically-concealed station becomes exposed to the Mintakan primitives, potentially upending their civilization. A rescue mission to fix a malfunction now faces a problem far bigger than a few men and a replacement battery.

Star Trek Deep Space Nine: Invasive Procedures


"I'm not going to spend the rest of my life dreaming about what I could have been, what I should have been. I deserve more and I'm going to get it."

Deep Space Nine is evacuated yet again when a Smoke Monster plasma storm appears; a skeleton crew - and Quark - are all that are left to defend the station. They get more than they bargained for when the remaining team members rescue victims of the storm who take over the ship - and in the process we somehow get a sort of Dax-centered episode.

Wayward Pines: Betrayal

"This fake little town is all that's left."

Ethan had a really tough day at his new job, what with the pipe bombs and all.

The X-Files: Kill Switch

Case: A famous computer programmer is killed in a shoot-out at a diner brought about under mysterious circumstances.

Destination: Washington DC and Fairfax County, Virginia

"We need a name. Your real name."
"Invisigoth."

The West Wing: The Leadership Breakfast

"Would you ask him if it's better to diss the House Whip or the Senate Whip?"

This episode is memorable for two things: it has Felicity Huffman in it, and the cold open.

The 100: The 48

"They gave us a map with no exits."

Wow. What a busy episode, with a lot of changes and a great deal of intriguing set-up for the second season.

Teen Wolf: Creatures of the Night

"What happened to your friends?"

It was bookended by two exciting sequences, but ‘Creatures of the Night’ failed to kick start Teen Wolf’s fifth season in the way it should have.

Orange is the New Black: Tongue-Tied

"Are you a good witch or a bad witch?"

Norma isn't a witch at all.

The X-Files: Chinga

Case: While on vacation, Scully meets a scary doll. No, really.

Destination: Ammab Beach, Maine

“The talking doll myth is well established in literature.”

This episode should have gone down in television history. A well-established show with a fan base that would forgive just about anything written by the master of horror, Stephen King. It did not go down in television history. Why? Because it is a truly terrible hour.
