Doctor Who: An Unearthly Child

An Unearthly Child
(aka 100,000 B.C., The Tribe of Gum, The Stone Age, or The Paleolithic Age)

Two teachers follow a mysterious student into a junkyard, spawning multiple generations of sci-fi geeks.

Community: Basic Crisis Room Decorum

Case: Rival City College is about to run an attack ad against Greendale claiming they’d given a degree to a dog.
Destination: Crisis Room. In the library. Really, just the regular study room with more maps.

Rectify: Drip, Drip

"I'm not even sure that I'm alive."

I usually become annoyed when I'm not sure what actually happened in an episode. But 'Drip, Drip' was so outrageously weird that I loved it, almost in spite of myself.

The West Wing: The War at Home

"Are we gonna keep them alive longer, or is it just going to seem longer?"

In the follow-up to 'Bartlet's Third State of the Union,' Jed has to decide how to deal with five American citizens taken hostage by drug dealers in Colombia.

Hannibal: The Wrath of the Lamb

It's cool. It's a funeral in my mind palace, too.
“When life becomes maddeningly polite think about me.”

(**Did you guys know there was a coda in 'The Wrath of the Lamb'? If you haven't seen it, fast-forward to the end of the episode for it then come back and read this after because the contents of said scene will be discussed herein!**)

Good lord, where do I even start with this blessed blood-soaked cinematic climax? I mean how does one show manage Gothic, monstrous and campy often in the same breath? I will miss this show very very much but this finale brought the house down.

The 100: Long Into an Abyss

Jasper: “And they said we wouldn’t amount to anything.”

If you are a smart adult, especially a parent, there comes a time when you realize that your child or children in general are much smarter than you thought or gave them credit for. Finally, in this episode Abby shows us that she is a smart parent.

Teen Wolf: Status Asthmaticus

“I wonder how much insurance this school has.”

Despite having to work with the wrong ingredients, ‘Status Asthmaticus’ ended up being a pretty entertaining, albeit slightly messy finale.

Star Trek Deep Space Nine: Second Sight

Can one man bring life to a dead solar system? When a visiting scientist attempts to terraform a dead sun, Epsilon 119, Sisko gets to answer that question in more ways than one.

Fear the Walking Dead: So Close, Yet So Far

"It's like no one is paying attention. It's like it's not real."

Tobias, the pimply fount of all apocalyptic wisdom, told Maddy, "When civilization ends, it ends fast." He wasn't kidding.

Rectify: Plato's Cave

Daniel: "Plato was onto something."
Janet: "He was considered fairly astute."

I'm captivated by the slow beauty of this story, which may be an odd thing to say considering the subject matter.
