‘Briarpatch’ 1×10 Review: “Felicity”

I’ll give Briarpatch 1×10 “Felicity” this, it really, really tries. It tries harder than any other episode of this show has tried. It just doesn’t deliver, mostly because there’s no payoff, there’s no emotional connection, there’s nothing. There are just…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×09 Review: “Game Theory and Mescaline”

Briarpatch 1×09 “Game Theory and Mescaline” stays more or less at the level of last episode, which was, by far, the best in the series – not that this distinction is very hard to earn. The problem is that it…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×08 Review: “Most Likely to Succeed”

To be honest, I’d been waiting for an episode like Briarpatch 1×08 “Most Likely to Succeed” since, well, since Briarpatch first started. There are many things the show set up that they could have developed better, none more important than…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×07 Review: “Butterscotch”

Whatever it is I’ve been waiting for as Briarpatch gets closer to the end of the season, Briarpatch 1×07 “Butterscotch” doesn’t deliver. In fact, it doesn’t even come close. Instead, even as this show gives us some answers, it continues…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×06 Review: “The Most Sinful Mf-er Alive”

The more Briarpatch I watch, the more it’s supposed to make sense. Except, the more Briapatch I watch, the least sense the ways they’re trying to make it all make sense end up actually, you know, making sense. That’s pretty…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×05 Review: “Behind God’s Back”

I wish I could say Briarpatch was getting better, but Briarpatch 1×05 “Behind God’s Back” is just more of the same confusing, wannabe edgy narrative that makes it very, very hard to actually connect to anyone. At least till the…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×04 Review: “Breadknife Weather”

Briarpatch 1×04 “Breadknife Weather” is the same brand of confusing as the last episode, as the show itself has become. Something is supposedly going on – many somethings. People are crooked, some extra crooked, but not Allegra, no. She’s the…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×03 Review: “Terrible, Awful, Shocking Things”

I will admit three episodes into Briarpatch, I’m disappointed. Why am I watching? Why did I think this was worth my time? What in the world is going on in Briarpatch 1×03 “Terrible, Awful, Shocking Things.” I got no answer…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×02 Review: What’s This About Again?

Briatpatch’s second episode, entitled “Snap, Crackle, Pop” is more confusing and less interesting than “First Time in Saint Disgrace” – at least, until the final few moments. But how am I stop watching now when the show ended like that?…

‘Briarpatch’ 1×01 Review: Where’s The Tiger?

I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from Briarpatch’s pilot, officially titled “First Time in Saint Disgrace,” or from the series in general. What I do know is I didn’t expect this episode to revolve around escaped zoo animals. What…
