5/5 No Score Yet Small Axe: Mangrove - Mangrove (TV Episode) The most striking moments of Mangrove, Steve McQueen's triumphant invocation of Black British history, aren't of anger, tears, or passion -- they're of silence.‐ Independent (UK)

42% What/If: Part 1 (TV, 2019) Zellweger's primary role here is just to deliver lines deliciously. She not only succeeds in the task, but she turns it into a three-course banquet... She makes the best of what she's given - if only the rest of What/If could keep pace with her.‐ Independent (UK)

2/5 89% Vanity Fair: Miniseries (TV, 2018) Perhaps it's impossible now to give Vanity Fair a worthy adaptation, but ITV's attempt could at least do with sharpening its claws, if only to see how brilliantly flawed and utterly fascinating a character Becky Sharp has always been. ‐ Independent (UK)

4/5 94% A Series of Unfortunate Events: Season 2 (TV, 2018) A Series of Unfortunate Events champions resilience. As much as it may revel in the miserable, the purpose of its own morbidity is to offer the assurance that hope lives in even the darkest of places.‐ Independent (UK)

89% The Crown: Season 2 (TV, 2017) In the end, Elizabeth occasionally breathes life, but it's hard not to feel within The Crown a general sense of limpness, of ineffectiveness in where the centre of its aims lie.‐ Independent (UK)

88% American Horror Story: Cult - Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (TV Episode) Things are bound to escalate, certainly, but it's been interesting to see how far the series has double-backed on itself. ‐ Independent (UK)

85% American Horror Story: Cult - Election Night (TV Episode) Cult plunges headfirst into a topic numbingly huge in its implications, and the results are fairly disconcerting.‐ Independent (UK)

94% Stranger Things: Season 2 (TV, 2017) Credit it all to two central ingredients: characterisation and tone. ‐ Independent (UK)

100% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 7 (TV Episode) The fact we got our very own Negan moment was just the icing on the insanity cake that was episode 7.‐ Independent (UK)

93% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 6 (TV Episode) [It's] a very calculated, sort of fiendishly brilliant re-jig of narrative structure working on the logic of - why have one new season of American Horror Story when you can get more bang for your buck with two?‐ Independent (UK)

88% The Crown: Season 1 (TV, 2016) In short, break this series down into its components and you've essentially got a series of men in rooms talking about what a woman should or shouldn't do, before politely sitting said woman down and delivering upon their decision.‐ Independent (UK)

4/5 94% A Series of Unfortunate Events: Season 1 (TV, 2017) The series' adult cast take particular delight in the naiveté of their roles, especially in the likes of Joan Cusack, K. Todd Freeman, Alfre Woodard, and Rhys Darby.‐ Independent (UK)

94% Twin Peaks: The Return (TV, 2017) As much as season 3 shows the advancement of Lynch's style, it still remains true to its traditions. ‐ Independent (UK)

95% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 17 (TV Episode) David Lynch wanted us to feel like this. To feel utterly lost. It's one of the most powerful emotions there is.‐ Independent (UK)

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 15 (TV Episode) Voiced by Nathan Frizzel, Jeffries in such an obtuse, intimidating form finally feels like a match for Bad Cooper. ‐ Independent (UK)

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 14 (TV Episode) We discover even that Janey-E just happens to be Diane's sister; a fairly usual coincidence in television, but with Twin Peaks it seems to bear a deeper significance. ‐ Independent (UK)

89% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 13 (TV Episode) It's prestige TV, but soap opera too. It's horror and drama and comedy all at once. But that constantly fluctuating tone is what's given Mark Frost and David Lynch their greatest freedom, all because emotion bends like silly putty in their hands.‐ Independent (UK)

90% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 12 (TV Episode) This is Lynch twisting the knife. The rudest awakening from our rose-tinted slumbers; Twin Peaks wasn't what we remembered it, and it's certainly far from it now. . It's that feeling which explains the sense of exhaustion in the town's other inhabitants.‐ Independent (UK)

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 6 (TV Episode) What brought [Carl] to this level of serenity, especially considering how brashly he acted in Fire Walk With Me? Indeed, it seems a potent image for a show dealing with how characters have mutated and matured over the course of 25 years.‐ Independent (UK)

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 5 (TV Episode) The tone has migrated away from the urban nightmare, the surreal skit, and towards what can only be described as an unsettling norm.‐ Independent (UK)

100% Twin Peaks: The Return - Part 3 (TV Episode) All scenarios that sound ridiculous on paper, but in the world of Twin Peaks, they fit. Their strangeness is both funny, but also slightly eerie.‐ Independent (UK)

88% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 5 (TV Episode) Episode 5, thankfully, is the start of American Horror Story's delivery with season 6; its descent into madness. A whole bunch of things happen in this episode, to the point that it all sort of flashes by in one wild scream.‐ Independent (UK)

74% American Horror Story: Roanoke (TV, 2016) There's a return here to the slow-burn, old school horror which characterised the earlier seasons, making this episode fairly notable in how little it actually reveals. ‐ Independent (UK)

91% American Horror Story: Roanoke - Chapter 4 (TV Episode) Episode 4 brought us a better look at the mysterious "Pig Man", who fans are potentially pinning down as linked to Murder House's "Piggy Man" - an urban legend which terrorised one of Ben's patients.‐ Independent (UK)

98% Game of Thrones: Season 6 - The Broken Man (TV Episode) The latest episode has struck somewhat of a divide within House Stark, as forces are slowly gathered for a final march on Winterfell. The appeal to House Mormont saw a mere 62 men recruited, while the appeal to House Glover failed entirely. ‐ Independent (UK)

88% Game of Thrones: Season 6 - Blood of My Blood (TV Episode) Though the latest episode of Game of Thrones may have appeared a little on the tame, slow-moving side; there's still certainly a few shocks and revelations to be found, for those with beady eyes and a working pause button on their remote.‐ Independent (UK)
