‘The Twilight Zone’ returns with new pilot

With anthology shows only becoming more prominent in recent years thanks to series like “Black Mirror” and “Love, Death, and Robots,” it seems as fit a time as any in the television landscape for “The Twilight Zone” to burst back onto the scene. With its first episode “The Comedian” — ironically airing on April Fools — the classic returns with as much intrigue and social commentary as ever.

Jon Snow: The Hero’s Journey

In what is commonly referred to as the hero’s journey, a protagonist often starts off in a bad position, one in which they feel trapped or isolated. Throughout the course of their journey, they learn lessons, face difficult situations and end up altered internally due to their treacherous growing process. Such is the case for “Game of Thrones” protagonist Jon Snow, a character who throughout the course of seven seasons has faced a number of grueling challenges that have tested his leadership and personal growth abilities to the nth degree.

‘True Detective’ season three unoriginal, falls flat

Sometimes a TV series just doesn’t know when to end. The first season of HBO’s “True Detective” from 2014 redefined crime storytelling for the ages to come. It was dark, gritty and rooted in the questioning of the nature of humanity. Each episode was more gripping and intriguing than the next. The third season starring Mahershala Ali looked promising, advertised in a fashion that channeled the nature of the first season, yet revealed to us that instead of trying to revive the glory of the first season, it was better for the show to have ended after one season and leave it at that.
