Critic reviews for Smoldering Children

The show sits down, shuts up, straps in and delivers an effective, character-driven story like "Smoldering Children."

This phenomenal cast, regulars and guest stars alike, consistently elevate the material. "Smoldering Children" was also a delightfully gory episode.

I expected "Smoldering Children" to reveal quite a bit about Larry's family, but so many things caught me off guard.

August 3, 2016 | Rating: 4.8/5 | Full Review…

So although it was a good episode, nothing new was really brought to our attention.

A fun game to play on this show is "which extraneous outsider will be murdered this week?"

August 3, 2016 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

She's just about to place her hand against his PSYYYYYYCH!, she pulls it back, leaving him proverbially "hangin'." Ice cold, and a role model to us all.
