We are living for all the drama, fantasy, horror and more in our picks this week. For some of choices, we turned some fantastic favorites who continue to deliver. We also checked out a new show (for the site, that is), and it gave us a lot to love.
Check out our picks for this week’s TV Reels Feels!
Bec: I’m going to give it Aisha Hinds as Henrietta “Hen” Wilson on 9-1-1. Her performance in “Help Is Not Coming” was amazing. Trapped herself, she still made the effort to help a dying firefighter and free a trapped little girl. Hinds consistently delivers week after week, but this felt like an episode where she truly got to shine.
Clare: I need to award this to two actors, mainly because their characters are so tied up together and it’s the combined performance that makes this so outstanding. That is Teresa Palmer and Matthew Goode as Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont in A Discovery of Witches. I love this book series and it’s always a gamble watching an adaptation of something you love, but Palmer and Goode are just perfect as Diana and Matthew and really make this series.
Emmy: I”ll admit I’m a still little bitter that Mandy Moore was overlooked for an Emmy nod for This is Us, and her performance this week is a prime example of why she needs to win or at least get a damn nod. Moore has poured her heart and soul into playing Rebecca, which shows with every scene that she is in.
Bec: My shows aren’t really back yet. So I checked out Midnight, Texas, I really thought that show had a strong pilot episode. It introduced you to the world. There is a decent clip to the episode. The characters were fun to watch. Definitely a great pilot.
Clare: OMFG how good is American Horror Story: Apocalypse?! This is fast becoming one of my favourite seasons of the series and “Could It Be… Satan?” is the perfect example of why. Freaking unbelievable cast, brilliant writing and a fantastic blend of Coven, Murder House and this new entity. Add in the introduction of the warlocks (and how brilliant is Jon Jon Briones, Cheyenne Jackson, Billy Porter and BD Wong?!) and this is like my perfect M version of Harry Potter but from a dark arts perspective. I can’t wait to see where they go with this.
Emmy: I’m with Clare on this one. “Could It Be…Satan?” was another brilliant episode of American Horror Story: Apocalypse. I loved the surprising twist with a school for warlocks, and honestly, you couldn’t have asked for a better council of warlocks. Loved the flashbacks to the pre-end of times and am totally loving the slow burn and build up to the end of the world.
Bec: Buck and Diaz going through that toppled over hotel was trippy, but really cool to watch. It’s just amazing set design. Like A+, show, A+.
Clare: An extended moment, but the whole meeting of the Council in American Horror Story: Apocalypse. Great performances from all involved and it was great to get more background info on how everything is connected and the relationship between the witches and the warlocks.
Emmy: Cordelia telling off the council (“Because I’m the f**king Supreme!”) in American Horror Story: Apocalypse is a moment I will never forget. She was a total BAMF in the moment, and you could just feel the quiet rage burning inside of her.
Olivia: “Fiji, why aren’t you jumping already?”
Fiji: “That’s not what I was thinking. I was admiring his cooking techniques. And don’t make that dirty.” –Midnight, Texas (“Pilot”)
“I always thought the world would end with fire and ice, not witches and warlocks” – American Horror Story: Apocalypse.
Cordelia: “Men are simply not equal to women when it comes to magical ability.”
Myrtle: “Not to mention everything else.”- American Horror Story: Apocalypse
