44% Houdini: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Brody is fully committed, and the role plays into his hammier instincts. Connolly's great, and Houdini could make for a raucous night with your friends if you drink whenever Mrs. Houdini drinks. " — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 2, 2014
88% Boardwalk Empire: Season 2 (TV, 2011) " If Boardwalk Empire just wants to be a ridiculously well-acted version of Set Designer's Wet Dream: The Series, that's fine. But most other successful HBO series have figured out a consistent theme, a basic foundation. " — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jul 16, 2014
C 52% Resurrection: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Resurrection stumbles mainly because it takes a creepy idea and then defaults to heartwarming goop. " — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 17, 2014
B- 36% Believe: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Do you prefer your supernatural dramas flavored with liberal-humanist spirituality and eerie god-children? Then you're in luck, weirdo! " — Entertainment Weekly

B+ 77% Sleepy Hollow: Season 1 (TV, 2013-2014) " The show's vibe is just right. " — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 22, 2014
B 89% Looking: Season 1 (TV, 2014) " Looking feels both thrillingly expansive and dangerously shapeless. " — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 21, 2014
95% An Adventure in Space and Time " Gatiss has written several Doctor Who scripts, and it's striking to see how he adapts the story behind the story into a vintage Who tale: A tale of misfits triumphing over long odds." — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 7, 2014
75% Southland: Season 3 (TV, 2011) " Every crime--murder, bank robbery, changing lanes without signaling--is a mini-masterpiece of L.A. noir. But the real draw is the cast. " — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Nov 19, 2013
D 4% Scary Movie 5 (2013) " A film composed almost entirely of jokes that were much funnier when you read them on Twitter years ago." — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Apr 12, 2013
20% Red Widow: Season 1 (TV, 2013) " The premiere felt a bit bland, as if the producers couldn't quite figure out just what tone they were going for. " — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Mar 4, 2013
C- 4% Playing for Keeps (2012) " Playing for Keeps takes place in a tonally incoherent universe, constantly shifting between rom-com farce and mawkish family drama." — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Dec 7, 2012
B+ 78% Dredd (2012) " Urban manages to give a credibly wry performance using little more than his gravelly, imitation-Eastwood voice - and his chin." — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Sep 20, 2012
60% Spartacus: Gods of the Arena: Unknown Season " The miniseries is a prequel, a narrative format that mainly lends itself to relentless wheel-spinning. So it was a pleasure to find out that the Gods of the Arena premiere was such a surprisingly enjoyable hour of television. " — Entertainment Weekly
Posted Jan 22, 2011
75% Southland: Season 8 " Every crime--murder, bank robbery, changing lanes without signaling--is a mini-masterpiece of L.A. noir. But the real draw is the cast. " — Entertainment Weekly
