A- 83% Suits: Season 2 (TV, 2012-2013) "Suits is my absolute favorite show on television that has significant, potentially show-ruining problems. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Apr 6, 2016
B+ 89% The Affair: Season 2 Episode 11 "Noah's most crucial interaction in this episode isn't actually with Alison at all, however; it's his conversation with Max that really resonates. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 14, 2015
B+ 100% The Affair: Season 2 Episode 10 "The Affair wisely calms things down by doing something completely out of character: Spending the entire first half of the episode with Noah talking to his couples' therapist, one-on-one. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 7, 2015
C 88% The Affair: Season 2 Episode 9 "This episode asks a lot of questions, and answers none. It's an intriguing concept, but doesn't quite have the emotional weight to carry all the unanswered questions it leaves behind, making this not quite work as a single episode as well as it should. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 30, 2015
B+ 100% The Affair: Season 2 Episode 8 "Where all this is leading isn't quite clear yet, but between Noah's continued disconnection from Alison and his lawyer's work to pin the whole Scotty murder on Alison in the upcoming trial, things certainly do appear to be unraveling. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 23, 2015
B 46% Chicago Med: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "There isn't anything groundbreaking about what Chicago Med (or Fire, or P.D.) is doing on an episode-by-episode basis, but that's not really the point. The point is to create solid dramas about the people whose lives revolve around saving others. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 18, 2015
A- 89% The Affair: Season 2 Episode 7 "The scene where Alison confronts Noah about his book is by far one of the most interesting things in the episode, because it finally give some context to the central storytelling device. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 16, 2015
B 89% The Affair: Season 2 Episode 6 "This is an episode full of brutal moments, but there is a beauty to be found here, too. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 9, 2015
B+ 89% The Affair: Season 2 Episode 5 "One of the most compelling things The Affair is doing with the expanded perspectives in season two is how it is using them to play with the timeline. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 2, 2015
A- 78% The Affair: Season 2 Episode 4 "The beauty of [Helen's] story here is we don't get to find out; we are left right where she is, alone in a jail cell and wondering just how her life got so far off track. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 26, 2015
B- 89% The Affair: Season 2 Episode 3 "[Alison's] entire walk in the woods with house owner Robert where she comes to these realizations is wonderfully written and acted, and this... elevates the Alison half of the episode to genuinely compelling. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 19, 2015
B 86% The Affair: Season 2 Episode 2 "One thing The Affair has been good at since the beginning is not being afraid to expand what is possible within the tight confines of structure the show has established for itself. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 12, 2015
C+ 80% The Vampire Diaries: Season 7 (TV, 2015) "It's great to see the show finally recognizing that Mystic Falls is a terrible place to live and getting civilians out of danger. Not great is the way they do it, via awkward voiceover and even more awkward pacing. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 9, 2015
A- 100% iZombie: Season 2 (TV, 2016) "I'm looking forward to what looks like a great season to come. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 7, 2015
B+ 96% The Affair: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "The most promising thing is that expanding the perspectives to include Helen opens the stories the show can tell in a great way. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 5, 2015
A- 88% The Affair: Season 1 Episode 10 "Well, the season one finale of The Affair manages to be exactly that. It's a maddening, frustrating, soapy, compelling, occasionally hilarious, entertaining mess, and I somehow equally loved and hated it at the same time. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 5, 2015
C+ 50% The Affair: Season 1 Episode 9 "It's the kind of episode that forces the question: What kind of show is The Affair trying to be? " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 5, 2015
A- 75% The Affair: Season 1 Episode 4 "It's the episode The Affair needed to sell Noah and Alison's affair as the catalyst for the entire series. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 5, 2015
A 100% The Affair: Season 1 Episode 1 "This dual perspective is a tricky line to walk, especially when it is tied to a risky device like a season-long mystery to unravel, but at least in the pilot it is managed with extreme grace. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 5, 2015
B+ 100% The Affair: Season 2 Episode 1 "For all of its faults, The Affair is abundantly, compulsively watchable, and that quality thankfully continues in the season two premiere. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 5, 2015
B+ 80% The Affair: Season 1 Episode 8 "The therapy scene between the two leads to one of the most interesting moments I've seen on television in quite a while. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 2, 2015
B 100% The Affair: Season 1 Episode 7 "Earlier this week on Twitter, Time critic James Poniewozik confessed that he finds the two marriages in The Affair far more interesting than the affair itself. As the show has progressed... I have to agree with him, especially after this episode. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 2, 2015
B+ 100% The Affair: Season 1 Episode 6 "As season one of The Affair continues to unfold, one of the most compelling things about the show is how it doesn't feel obligated to be one thing. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 2, 2015
A- 100% The Affair: Season 1 Episode 5 "Episode four was about Alison and Noah as their own distinct entity; episode five explores how this entity coexists with their already established lives. That exploration... makes for an extremely satisfying episode. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 2, 2015
B 75% The Affair: Season 1 Episode 3 "The writers have earned a fair amount of trust in only these three episodes, but it's hard not to wonder how this limiting perspective will play out when it comes to characters like Cole and Helen in future episodes. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 2, 2015
B+ 83% The Affair: Season 1 Episode 2 "Its to the show's credit that it never feels less than completely measured, at least through the first two episodes. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 2, 2015
B+ 92% iZombie: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The pop culture universe might not need another zombie story, but I'm glad it's got this one all the same. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 18, 2015
B+ No Score Yet Switched at Birth: Season 4 (TV, 2015) "This season appears primed to show a flip side to the exploration of consequences. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 7, 2015
A 95% The Affair: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Experiences can be interpreted in vastly different ways. It's in this ambiguous space between shared memories and the truth where The Affair firmly plants its flag, and then gamely asks the audience to go along for the ride. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 13, 2014
C+ 60% The Vampire Diaries: Season 6 (TV, 2014-2015) "Stumbling out of the gate a bit after a season finale that completely changed the status quo is to be expected. Still, it's a bit disappointing to have the stumbling feel as mundane as it does here. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 3, 2014
B- 100% Revenge: Season 4 (TV, 2014-2015) "Whether or not Victoria's promise of revenge comes to pass, it's certainly a fun, soapy idea to have Emily and Victoria switch places completely in the narrative, with a lot of rich story possibilities. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 29, 2014
B+ 100% Parenthood: Season 6 (TV, 2014-2015) "Welcome back, Parenthood. I'm so glad you're still here. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 26, 2014
C- 50% True Blood: Season 7 (TV, 2014) "This is a show so stuck in a quagmire of nonsense that it introduced a ridiculous six-month time jump in last season's finale to get out of the nonsense -- and yet when the show picks up here, it becomes clear it is still stuck in a quagmire of nonsense. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 26, 2014
C+ 75% Chasing Life: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) "The most important thing needed to make this type of small story work is a strong driving force at its center, and that's unfortunately where Chasing Life stumbles right out of the gate. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 11, 2014
B+ 100% Teen Wolf: Season 3 (TV, 2013-2014) "The show is one of the more entertaining supernatural larks on television, accomplishing this unlikely feat by way of its likable cast, stylistic visual swagger, and a surprisingly sharp sense of humor. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Mar 25, 2014
B 59% Star-Crossed: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "A lot of heavy lifting for a fluffy teen sci-fi romance, but so far the show acquits itself well, sticking the landing with its romantic moments and politically minded scenes in equal measure. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Feb 19, 2014
C- 57% Chicago P.D.: Season 1 (TV, 2014) "Chicago P.D. ultimately disappoints by committing the most critical spinoff sin: It fundamentally misunderstands what makes the original work. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jan 8, 2014
A- 100% Arrow: Season 2 (TV, 2013-2014) "It's all the more impressive that Arrow's character work extends from the core team to its fully realized peripheral characters. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Dec 12, 2013
B+ 100% The Vampire Diaries: Season 5 (TV, 2013-2014) "Yes, this wasn't necessarily a perfect episode of The Vampire Diaries but it feels like the perfect introduction to a season that looks to be filled with changing character dynamics and ever-shifting alliances. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 4, 2013
C 71% Revenge: Season 3 (TV, 2013-2014) "That's what this Revenge premiere feels like: A recreation cobbled together after the original, more organic version was somehow lost. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 30, 2013
B 100% Switched at Birth: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2012) "Switched at Birth isn't the most innovative summer show of the season or the most sexy summer show on even its own network, but it might be the one with the most potential for broad appeal. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 11, 2013
B 100% Supernatural: Season 6 (TV, 2010-2011) "It was rather predictable (other than Dean spiking his blood, which I thought was a nicely revealed surprise) but had the familiar rhythms of a well-constructed episode of Supernatural, and the jokes landed. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 10, 2013
B- 80% Pretty Little Liars: Season 2 (TV, 2011-2012) "I'm not sure if it's the perfectly spaced scheduling or the perfectly glacial storytelling... but [PLL] feels like it's been on the air forever. When I heard season two was about to start I had two main reactions: Ugh, already? And...only season two? " ‐ AV Club
Posted Sep 9, 2013
B 70% Suits: Season 3 (TV, 2013-2014) "Suits has more internal forward momentum than most anything else on television right now, and when it's on, like it mostly is here, it just cooks. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 16, 2013
C- 26% Camp: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "The result is a show unmoored, simultaneously trying on several different tones but not quite yet finding one that fits. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jul 10, 2013
C- 37% Mistresses: Season 1 (TV, 2013) "Too narratively banal to be memorable and not nearly sexy enough to make up for its narrative shortcomings. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Jun 3, 2013
C 22% Malibu Country: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) "Fish-out-of-water comedies are basically predicated on using stereotypes to mine humor, but there has to be a more artful way to do it than this, or at least less eye-rolling stereotypes to feature. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Nov 10, 2012
D+ 26% Emily Owens, M.D.: Season 1 (TV, 2012-2013) "The biggest disaster here is not the somewhat tired premise as much as the title character that premise revolves around. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 16, 2012
B- 83% The Vampire Diaries: Season 4 (TV, 2012-2013) "The best thing about this episode for me was the juxtaposition between Stefan and Damon's characters and how delicately balanced it was despite the high stakes. " ‐ AV Club
Posted Oct 11, 2012
B 50% Revenge: Season 2 (TV, 2012-2013) "The heart of the show remains the same, and is even growing stronger as the episodes tick along. " ‐ AV Club
