Tyrant Season Finale Review: Two Graves

Blame for the political situation in Abuddin is getting passed around like a hot potato. With the unfortunate news that Tyrant Season 3 Episode 10 might be the de factoseries finale after FX's cancelation, we may never find out if Barry is capable of taking responsibility for his actions. Of course, he's not the only one who refuses to acknowledge that actions have consequences. ...Read More...   //

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 9 Review: How to Live

Choosing sides may be necessary, but it's also not without consequences. Daliyah's in jail, Fauzi's in exile, and Leila's staring down an army. Nafisa's having a breakdown, Molly's lost her damn mind, and Ahmed and Sammy are taking the idea of sibling rivalry to new levels. All while Barry desperately tries to assert his power and ignore his nagging conscience. Tyrant Season 3 Episode 9 sure gave us a lot to digest!  ...Read More...   //

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 8 Review: Ask for the Earth

Unfortunately for the people of Abuddin, it's not always the better angels of a leader's nature that win out. Of course, Barry's angels are arguing against some pretty insistent voices on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 8 . Molly may look all better to the casual observer, but it's all just a facade. And it doesn't help that military advisor General Maloof is blood thirsty and power hungry.   What exactly was the tipping point for the interim president? His tenure started out with so much optimism, basically channeling Mandela. Was Emma's death alone what caused him to change course? ...  Read More....   //

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 7 Review: Bedfellows

And the gold medal in slut shaming goes to...Abuddin! Tyrant Season 3 Episode 7 featured angry mobs, blackmail, and more. Okay, so, that's somewhat par for the course with this lot. What really drew the stories together for me tonight was the women compromising their own values and positions in order to achieve their larger goals. ...  Read More...   //

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 6 Review: Truth and Dignity

The Al-Fayeed family continues to fall apart on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 6 : Barry's acting more and more like Jamal every day and Sammy's reverting to his naive and spoiled ways, while Leila's had it with them all and is moving out. Poor Ahmed just wants somebody to love him. The rest of characters didn't fare much better, but at least no one died. Okay, so there were a few close calls, and Fauzi had his heart broken, but they all made it out alive in the end. ...Read More...   //

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 5 Review: A Rock and a Hard Place

So long, farewell, aufWiedersehen, and adieu to Molly. With the first lady of Abuddin fleeing to Germany on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 5 , the number of Al Fayeeds continues to shrink. Barry isn't handling his country much better than he is his family, but Abuddinmay be able to find hope in a new leader who that will be remains to be seen.   Read More...   //

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 4 Review: A Prayer for Our Daughters

This is starting to be down right Shakespearean. Molly roamed the palace doing her best impression of Ophelia on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 4 , while Leila revealed that Jamal wasn't Ahmed's real father, but rather his uncle. Sammy went looking for love in all the wrong places, and Barry was too busy planning revenge to deal with his family.   Read More...   //

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 3 Review: The Dead and the Living

It is not a good time to be an Al Fayeed. The family continued to decrease in size on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 3 , with the losses of both Jamal and Emma. I'm starting to wonder if there will be anybody left by the end of the season. The death toll is starting to rival the one on Game of Thrones !...   Read More...   //

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 2 Review: Cockroach

To say that Barry is stuck between a rock and a hard place on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 2 would be a gross understatement. Honestly, it's amazing he only has that little patch of grey so far. Molly orDaliyah, family or country, comfort or truth...he's facing a ton of tough decisions....   Read More...   //

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 1 Review: Spring

New characters, new democracy, same old Abuddin. Jamal's recovery might have been the final shocker of Tyrant Season 3 Episode 1 , but it was far from the only one. Prisoner exchanges, faked suicides, and resignation announcements all shook up the political minefield that is Abbudin. Who will end up in power is anybody's guess....    Read More...   //
