The General
A civil war general (for the Confederacy) is a Rittenhouse plant. Emma bangs the boring big bad. Wyatt is dumb and whines about his pregnant wife who is obviously evil. Wyatt is the most selfish stupid tool. There are negative consequences to Jessica being around. Rittenhouse target Harriet Tubman.

Wyatt screams at Lucy. People keep things from Flynn. Wyatt is awful and uses the name Rhett Butler. The civil war rages, slaves escape and Jessica is an obvious lying liar who lies. Rufus learns someone else has visions. Jessica steals the lifeboat and proves she is evil. Like duh. This was dull.

Best Line:
“Cult loving sociopath traitor.”

“Forbidden colours.”

The Haunting
A woman (Megan Ward of ‘Dark Skies’) mumbles about her dead husband not being dead but living on in an AI. Of course the term AI is not used. People mumble about the AI being intellectual property without using that term either. Meanwhile the sexist annoys and an incel whines about not getting any vagina due to his mother (Adrienne Barbeau).

The widow has an ugly hair cut. People have PDAs. The lawyers claim the dead husband AI is sentient and has rights, like animals have rights. The incel’s mother is vile. Phonebooks and livestreaming are mentioned, though the phrase livestream doesn’t seem to exist in this form of 2030.

The Turing test isn’t mentioned. The incel’s mom has 90s hair. People use really dated tech talk. No tension is slowly ratcheted up. There is bad acting and this show has no dramatic foundation. It’s said the dead husband did a brutal creation of an AI so he didn’t have to deal with his wife. There is ageism and discussion of photofilters and this is not uncompromising and there is an impossibility of mercy. This shows the sexist extreme bleakness of US TV.

Why would somebody run into a bookstore to download a journal? The widow’s dead husband AI wants her to put her life on hold to stay with him. Is Nestor’s character called Tom? TPTB make the incel’s mother like Barbara Daly Brekeland. The widow changes her mind. This was rubbish.

Best Lines:
“A portal of disease.”

“Got a C+ in estate law.”

“Lacks independent violation.”

“Nano tubes.”

“Spoiled children fighting over whose going to inherit the summer house.”

“Call that thing human”

“Net-site.”

Lydia’s in jail? Where is Dayana? Ryan wears cargo shorts and lies. Shelby mentions her fake sister. Harry is sexist and has no learned maturity and refuses to accept sense. Clayton whines. There are fraught exchanges and hurtful situations. Things aren’t harmonious. Nothing is gloriously risky.

Harry makes ultimatums. The annoying reporter annoys. Clayton’s bimbo fiancée is not into wellbeing support. A socialite is a figure of terror but not really. Owen uses the term sinister force. This ep is ancillary. Sebastian resurfaces. A sniper attacks. There is odd coloured blood. Clayton’s fiancée sneers about him not meeting her needs. She’s a judgemental fanatic. Alex is self doubting.

Best Lines:
“You say that like I’m the one that keeps leaving.”

“Her taste, personal network and dinner parties are legendary.”

“Focus on what the lie gets you.”

“Harry’s a trained assassin. He is the danger.”

“You make the worst decisions.”

ODYOKE
Has anyone noticed Leon is dead? What is up with Harry? A baddie is referred to as The Sith Lord. Where is Clayton’s Secret Service protection? His mother is the POTUS! There is no sincere compassion. The gorgeous Jon Kortajanena guest stars. There are untidy lives and potentially damaging incidents. There is twin trouble and moral ambiguities.

Who came up with The Collaborators name? There is no moral force or self-reflection. Clayton has palpable vein popping fury. This ep was sanctimonious. Where is Dayana? The last bastion of sense collapses. Is Harry in the far from tender hands of the AIC? Oh who cares? Leon’s dead. Does anyone care? Where is Miranda? Is Felix (Kortajanena) trustworthy? Was there car product placement? The whiny reporter whines.

People are bitter and ungrateful. Writer tracts are spewed. A twin has barely contained rage. People and the plot are marinated in delusion. Shelby wears an ugly pink trouser suit. There is moral indignation. Ryan sneers and the reporter is a spy, like duh. There is another frame-job. Ryan is an ass. This was okay. The twins switch places. Sebastian lurks. Where is Will?

Best Lines:
“All I need is a 90 minute massage and 6 hours at the gun range.”

“What and who should we fear and why?”

“Cache ping.”

“Countries of concern.”

“Beneath my mistakes.”

“You right wing sellout!”

“What ‘Black Mirror’ episode did we wake up in?”

“I’m not sorry.”

KUMONK
Caleb’s back. Alex trains Owen. WTF? The annoying reporter annoys. Ryan is a burk. Marcia Cross guest stars. Clayton whines. Nothing breaktakingly shocking or pessimistic happens. The baddies elevate tensions and people make very poor decisions. There are dark warnings.

The very cute Felix gets close-ups. Miranda is in Cleveland. The suspected big bad makes his case in a very reasonable manner. The annoying reporter violates perceived moral boundaries. Owen and Sebastian brawl. Sebastian’s not a baddie - just driven exorably insane and revenge has consumed him body and soul. The reporter has tangible self-assurance. The baddie acts as a steadying influence.

A car bomb takes out the annoying reporter. The POTUS makes a dumb speech. Ryan can’t do an unthreatening demeanour. There is no moral courage. Clayton is secretly unconfident. There is no redemptive arc for Caleb. This was okay. Felix feels trepidation as the big bad Speaker purposefully menaces him. Ryan is thick as mince.

Best Lines:
“If you were a Navy SEAL, I’d be shooting rubber bullets at you.”

“Building to an endgame.”

“There are people who like guns. In a state with concealed carry laws.”

“Of course there’s a conspiracy. You’re here.”

“Nice monologue Michelle Williams.”

“I think I should go.”
“Good idea.”

“I never really liked you at all.”

MHORDER
The dead bimbo is the least lamented character ever on this show. Ryan’s creepy behaviour is sentimentalised. WTF is KeyViper? Caleb lurks, one wonders about the socialization process in their family. Shelby has slept with Clayton’s dead father and his brother Caleb. He reacts to her on that basis. Exposition is spewed. Caleb heads back to Berkeley.

Caleb perceptively makes a joke about Shelby banging his mom. TPTB wouldn’t go there would they? Fredric Lehen guest stars. There is no moral dimension. Owen plots to take down the baddies. Clayton’s fiancée works in an office with weird puffy wallpaper. Caleb does point out that letting a former speechwriter run a clandestine task force is dumb.

Where’s Dayana? People are unsubtle. The Speaker plans an oppressive doctrinaire future and baddies are beyond redemption. People mumble threats. There is no strong approval of this. Nobody is magnificent in their malice. No moral case is made. Ryan’s choices are powered by libido. Nobody cares that Leon is dead. Clayton and Felix sneer. This is not particularly compelling. The Speaker is played by the poor man’s Ron Silver. Ryan’s big plan goes awry. The taskforce is attacked. There are no backups. The POTUS is to be impeached. Alex goes undercover.

Best Lines:
“This isn’t an Agatha Christie novel.”

“Everyone loves a party even racist fascists trying to overthrow the government!”

“I’m failing.”
“Like Ben Affleck as Batman.”

“Go. No go.”

“I knew, I just didn’t care.”

“We’ve lost.”

GLOBALREACH
Ryan and Shelby should be done after being publicly named in the media. Where is Dayana? Where is Sebastian? Where is Will? The CIA dude (Henry Czerny of ‘Mission Impossible’) quits. The POTUS (Marcia Cross) is in peril. This was good. Alex is giving reading material as she joins the AIC. This seems somewhat similar to ‘Designated Survivor’. Ryan is an arse.

Ryan and Clayton have forceful responses and this is a surreal manifestation of the libtard agenda. The cultural narrative is to change. Alex is sneered at. Her eyebrows and Kylie Jenner lips are immaculate. Felix is HOT. Clayton tries to be tough. Ryan screams. Clayton and Shelby plot, badly. This season has improved after sucking like a starving lamprey.

Ryan is a tool. Clayton loses Felix as a friend due to his lies. So much for his peerless reputation. I miss Ryan would go away. Things get grim. Mercy is less than forthcoming. Alex has to let a bad thing happen. The inevitable outcome happens as the Speaker becomes POTUS.

Best Lines:
“That man cannot take power. He cannot become our president.”

“His porn search history is vanilla.”

“Operating outside morality.”

“Post truth world.”
