2/5 86% Outlander: Season 1 Episode 9 "All told it made for a very strange and uneven return. " ‐ Collider
Posted May 26, 2016
3/5 44% Bloodline: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Without the convention of flashforwards or the setting up of any big event, Season 2 feels a lot like it's just treading water. " ‐ Collider
Posted May 26, 2016
3/5 87% Outlander: Season 1 Episode 16 "Outlander's inaugural season has been an often great, but largely uneven one. The cinematography has been superb, the costuming divine, and the chemistry between Claire and Jamie off the charts. " ‐ Collider
Posted May 24, 2016
93% Outlander: Season 1 Episode 15 ""Wentworth Prison" was an excruciating episode that is leading up to what looks to be a difficult finale. Though I trust in Murtagh's cattle plans to save Jamie, what may happen to him before that may be extremely hard to bear. " ‐ Collider
Posted May 23, 2016
3/5 92% Outlander: Season 1 Episode 14 "After two lulling weeks at Lallybroch, it was good to get back into the saddle (quite literally) for more adventure. " ‐ Collider
Posted May 23, 2016
3/5 91% Outlander: Season 1 Episode 13 "Though the time at Lallybroch was nice, and even occasionally idyllic, sleepy reveries are not really Outlander's trademark. It's time to get back to adventuring. " ‐ Collider
Posted May 23, 2016
4/5 92% Preacher: Season 1 (TV, 2016) " The cartoonish and supernatural elements heighten Preacher's story and make it unique, though its foundation remains universal, and its cast make even the most unbelievable elements feel knowable and intimate. " ‐ Collider
Posted May 10, 2016
4/5 100% Penny Dreadful: Season 3 (TV, 2016) "Penny Dreadful creates a splendor that's easy to get lost in, as it drowns itself in the period, in opulence and squalor, in the darkness and the light, and once again seems primed to be one of the year's most spellbinding tales. " ‐ Collider
Posted Apr 28, 2016
5/5 92% Veep: Season 5 (TV, 2016) "Needless to say, the show remains very, very funny, and that's thanks to an incredible cast whose timing remains impeccable. Those comedic beats remain as vulgar as ever. " ‐ Collider
Posted Apr 21, 2016
5/5 92% The Night Manager: Miniseries (TV, 2016) "The Night Manager is so much more than a story built on spy craft, though, as it seamlessly weaves in fantastic bits of character backgrounds, and takes the time to really explore Roper's gilded world built upon a mound of bones. " ‐ Collider
Posted Apr 20, 2016
1/5 0% Hunters: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Clunky dialogue and an uninspired visual style seal 'Hunters' fate, despite McMahon's best efforts. " ‐ Collider
Posted Apr 13, 2016
2/5 No Score Yet The Detour: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "The Parkers are definitely not lowlifes, but The Detour does relish in its own muck. Still, regardless of whether it's your style of comedy or not, the show ultimately is not something that feels particularly fresh or essential " ‐ Collider
Posted Apr 13, 2016
No Score Yet The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story: Season 1 Episode 10 "Part of why this format worked so well, is because we already knew the outcome. And yet, it didn't make the finale any less tense. Waiting for the verdict was excruciating because of how the show also made the final episode specifically about that. " ‐ Collider
Posted Apr 6, 2016
4/5 98% Outlander: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Outlander is using its time in Paris to further explore Claire and Jamie's marriage and individual personalities through facing new challenges, and it merges that with both humor and romance in increasingly great ways. " ‐ Collider
Posted Apr 6, 2016
4/5 86% Wynonna Earp: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "Wynonna Earp is something different for Syfy, and something that also feels different to anything we're seeing on TV currently, thanks not only to its setting, but its prominent placement of so many strong, profane, kickass female characters. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 31, 2016
4/5 100% Banshee: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "Banshee's story is full of twists and unexpected connections, as well as its telltale brutal violence. In a sick streak of creativity, the show continues to find new, gruesome ways to kill people. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 30, 2016
4/5 80% The Path: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "While skepticism may rule at the start, it doesn't take long for the show to make one a believer in its own story, and in the power of its exceptional performances. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 29, 2016
3/5 80% Grantchester: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Grantchester deserves to be noticed and possibly even thanked for the rare calm it adds to the increasingly noisy TV landscape. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 27, 2016
3/5 No Score Yet Mr. Selfridge: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "Led with bombastic enthusiasm by Jeremy Piven, the final season is a satisfying way to say goodbye to these characters. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 27, 2016
2/5 70% The Catch: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Only for the Shonda Serious. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 24, 2016
5/5 99% The Americans: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "The Americans' exploration of identity and loyalty is unmatched. Season 4 is full of hard choices, carefully calibrated decision making, and the simple chaos of life that changes everything in an instant. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 16, 2016
4/5 90% And Then There Were None: Miniseries (TV, 2015) "And Then There Were None is a fantastic psychological portrait of a group of frightened, confused people turning on one another in the face of fear. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 13, 2016
4.0/5 97% The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Ryan Murphy's ambitions new anthology series refreshingly not like a Ryan Murphy series at all. It is, perhaps surprisingly, understated and played straight (almost), " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 10, 2016
5.0/5 96% Better Call Saul: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Better Call Saul's new season jumps right back in to the Sandpiper case, law firm culture, Chuck and Jimmy's now-frosty relationship, as well as Jimmy's budding romance with Kim, and his association with Mike " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 10, 2016
4.0/5 80% 11.22.63: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "11.22.63's aesthetics are tantalizing, the acting compelling, and the twists and supernatural elements are genuinely shocking. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 10, 2016
90% Faults (2015) "Faults is a taught and charismatic work, and also the latest film to tackle the subject of cults in a quietly earnest way. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 4, 2016
4/5 100% Bates Motel: Season 4 (TV, 2016) "In the best way possible, Bates Motel is how it's always been. It's strange and off-kilter, it plays with truth and hints at extremely dark acts, and it's at its best when it grounds itself in emotional truths. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 4, 2016
3/5 61% The Family: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "That layered storytelling, presented in such an undeniably catchy way, makes The Family yet another strong entry to ABC's primetime arsenal. But whether it can pivot into something even greater remains to be seen. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 3, 2016
4/5 86% Hap and Leonard: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "It succeeds in being strange, funny, tense, and emotional, with the relationship between Leonard and Hap - who behave like brothers and often like kids - as its shining core. " ‐ Collider
Posted Mar 1, 2016
1/5 33% Fuller House: Season 1 (TV, 2016) "From boring to fully intolerable, there's not even enough here to make it Fuller House a serviceable kids show. " ‐ Collider
Posted Feb 23, 2016
4/5 83% Girls: Season 5 (TV, 2016) "As relationships take on new shades of meaning as they become grounded and real, Girls begins to really build something wonderful. Dare we call it ... maturity? " ‐ Collider
Posted Feb 19, 2016
2/5 88% Togetherness: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "Over a decade ago, Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant's The Office brought about a new era of cringe comedy, but with Togetherness, that balance swings too far into cringe and not enough into comedy. " ‐ Collider
Posted Feb 19, 2016
93% True Detective : Season 1 Episode 4 "True Detective amped itself up for another hour of mesmerizing and heart-pounding television, the likes of which really haven't been since - dare I say it? Breaking Bad. " ‐ Collider
Posted Jun 18, 2015
A 100% True Detective : Season 1 Episode 3 "The show's languid pace is always offset by a fantastic cliffhanger, and none more terrifying or suggestive than in "The Locked Room." " ‐ Collider
Posted Jun 16, 2015
100% True Detective : Season 1 Episode 2 "It's incredible the amount of storytelling that True Detective has already done in these two short hours. " ‐ Collider
Posted Jun 10, 2015
A 100% True Detective : Season 1 Episode 1 "There's so much to explore in True Detective, and it's almost unbelievable with everything that happened in the first hour, that we've only just begun. " ‐ Collider
Posted Jun 4, 2015
62% Whitney "A successful directorial debut for Angela Bassett. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 15, 2015
78% Eye Candy: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Eye Candy is designed to appeal to an MTV audience, and in that it will surely succeed. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 9, 2015
100% Hindsight: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "There's still plenty of room for Hindsight to grow, and plenty of reasons to stick around for it to happen. Crucially, the show is ultimately more than the sum of its scrunchies, beepers and AOL accounts. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 5, 2015
75% The Red Tent: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "From a secular perspective, The Red Tent may not exactly be an epic, but it's an engaging and very well cast story of the triumph and resilience of the female spirit. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Dec 10, 2014
95% The Game: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Its short run and clear objective should hopefully hook viewers that may not be entirely drawn in by the series' first episode. But by its third, it's hard to not be entrenched in The Game's world, and curious about where it's going to end up. " ‐ Collider
Posted Dec 8, 2014
82% Mike Tyson Mysteries: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Mike Tyson Mysteries should not disappoint the Adult Swim audience, or anyone who tunes in out of curiosity. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 23, 2014
71% Town of the Living Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Town of the Living Dead is content to just skim the top of what could have otherwise been a really fascinating piece of work. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 7, 2014
100% The Chair: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Despite its overly talky nature, those interested in how productions get off of the ground will be fascinated by the details, which The Chair doesn't miss one moment of. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 5, 2014
44% Houdini: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Edel's refreshingly dynamic direction and Brody's buoyant performance allow Houdini's tricks to retain their wonder, even for the jaded modern viewer. That's a magical feat indeed. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 25, 2014
53% The Lottery: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "The Lottery has promise, and is a striking change of pace for Lifetime. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 21, 2014
82% Satisfaction: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Satisfaction thus turns itself into a surprising drama about ethics, aiming to be more than a mere montage of climaxing clients. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 17, 2014
39% Rush: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "While Rush is very much in USA's wheelhouse, bearing passing resemblance tonally (that is, quick and breezy) to series like Royal Pains and Burn Notice, it doesn't come together as well as some of the network's more memorable series. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 17, 2014
67% Matador: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "As a summer series in the wake of World Cup fever, perhaps Matador's biggest success it having arrived at the right time. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 17, 2014
92% The Divide: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Under Goldwyn's direction, the series has a cold, wintry palette, and a darkness to it that is atmospheric without being overwhelming, and serves to reflect the show's illustration of moral grayness. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
