57 Channels and Only This Is On: 7/16/2017

Claws: Are we really getting a second, oh wait Roller really is not dead, for the second time in three episodes? Ugg. Really an up and down episode, the opening was great (though I have to question why the doctor did not take off the pillowcase in the trunk). The parts with Desna’s brother is always a drag, but it was paid off with a great sequence where they cut back between the murders and the weirdly choreographed dance sequence. But to end with the tease of Roller not being dead again was a huge let down.
You can download Claws on iTunes.

Fear the Walking Dead: Poor hot chick, she was gone this whole time and does not even get her own episode; it was just one segment where we learned how she joined the Indians. And of course she was a Trojan horse. Plus that was a horrible cover story to boot. And what is with this mid-season crap. The main show does it to avoid Christmas, but a break in the summer is just silly and exploitative and just builds into the narrative that the franchise can only do premieres and finales and everything else is boring.

I’m Dying Up Here: Oh hey, Bill’s dad is still around? Hasn’t been months? But that got dark real quick. And poor Johnny Carson, the first up and coming comic after a dude walks into bus tried to OD in his green room.

Preacher: So after a century in Hell, Hitler has turned into a pansy? Are we really supposed to feel bad for Hitler?
You can download Preacher on iTunes.

Casual: There is no television cliché I hate more than start an episode at the end and then show the x amount a time before place card. But this was weird because it had no bearing on the episode. It was almost like they thought, well we are paying all this money for a Fleetwood Mac song, might as well play it twice. And does Tommy not listen to Nice and Smooth because if he did he would know too much of anything makes you an addict.
You can stream Casual on Hulu.

The Bold Type: This may already be my favorite horrible show on television. Sorry Supergirl.
You can download The Bold Type on iTunes.
