A searing dragon battle.
These are things that make TV incredibly exciting, and you can find them in the gallery below.
Dragons in Battle
Daenerys taking Drogon into battle on Game of Thrones was, like, the best scene of the entire series. Watching the dragon burn everyone in sight was refreshing after all of the crazy battles we've witnessed in the past. It's just a shame she took Viserion into battle with her later in Game of Thrones Season 7 and he was killed.
A Single Triumph for Mr. Robot
Mr. Robot's single-take episode was impressive to say the least. It was a nice break away from the usual format and the commercial-free, single shot episode was positively riveting and had me glued to the screen the entire time.
Josh Stewart's Shooter Arc That Hit The Target
Josh Stewart's entire arc on Shooter has been very exciting. Solotov is such a fantastic villain that it's difficult to not love him. Stewart plays off of Ryan Philippe so well, and the best moments have been when they have to face off in some way or another. Solotov is one of the reasons the second season was so thrilling.
Legion - A Marvel Hero Like No One Ever Thought Possible
With all the Marvel and DC adaptations on our big, small, and streaming screens, some dumbed down and others amped up for easy consumption on the network landscape, this was the show I had to rewatch on multiple occasions because it was such a mind-bender. The unreliable narrator, the crazy villain hiding IN HIS BRAIN, all the memory-visiting and psychic shenanigans. This was television that challenges its viewers to JUST KEEP UP.
The Hunt for Mr. Mercedes
Every episode featured Bill Hodges getting followed and harassed by the evil Brady aka Mr. Mercedes, a psychotic killer with more sick ideas than any one man-child should ever have in his mind. As the two brilliant minds eased toward one another, the tension increased until they were head to head. Every episode was a nail-biter. Beautiful performances by Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway and the entire cast!
Supergirl's Big Team Up
Kara and Maggie fighting the clock to save Alex after she was kidnapped on Supergirl Season 2 Episode 19 made for an intense hour. Even knowing that of course Alex would survive, I still found myself on the edge of my seat as the water rose higher and higher in that tank. The stakes were high and emotions were running wild, giving viewers one of the most exciting installments of the season.
