70% The Twilight Zone: Season 1 (TV, 2019) There's something magical about Peele's performance. There's a twinkle in his eye, a gentleness to his telling of these warning-stories, and an otherworldly knowledge perfect for the series.‐ Pajiba

64% Deadly Class: Season 1 (TV, 2019) What really got me hyped were the special effects and fight scenes. Both are imperative for a show like this. They must be crisp and clean. If they're not believable, the whole show falls apart. ‐ Pajiba

85% Marvel's Luke Cage: Season 2 (TV, 2018) Misty is a force throughout the entire season. A cop so close to turning vigilante, I found myself holding my breath during a lot of her scenes... It's an incredible journey. ‐ Pajiba
