TVOM: "Wow. Just as I was about to give up, Tyrant raised its game to an exceptional level. Between this week’s episode and the preview for next week, all of the things I’ve said it needed are coming into the picture. Last week, Jamal attacked Sheik Rashid in the bathroom just before the new election system was implemented. At that time, of course, I’d written it off as another crazy Jamal thing to keep the audience for one more week. But with this week’s episode and the promise of the next one, I finally figured out what this show did wrong: too many episodes."
