4/4 100% The Returned: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "You come away from each episode of "The Returned" more deeply involved in the story and characters than you may be used to with other TV shows. It's a series that will haunt you - in the best possible way. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Oct 30, 2015
3/4 98% Ash vs. Evil Dead: Season 1 (TV, 2015-2016) "With Ash vs. Evil Dead, [Starz] earns a label it's never had before: hip. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle

Posted Oct 26, 2015
2.5/4 97% Supergirl: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Benoist makes an appealing heroine, and there's definite chemistry in her scenes with Brooks. Flockhart has fun chewing scenery, even if her character seems more Devil Wears Prada than the Cat Grant of the Supergirl comic books. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Oct 23, 2015
3/4 100% Fargo: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Fargo, the TV show, has more than developed its own identity and is fully capable of standing on its own. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Oct 14, 2015
3/4 92% The Last Kingdom: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "There are no dragons in Last Kingdom, or need for fantasy at all, for that matter. History proves every bit as engaging as make-believe. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle

Posted Oct 14, 2015
3/4 81% Red Oaks: Season 1 (TV, 2014-2015) "Streaming encourages looking at the complete story, which Jacobs and Gangemi do with Red Oaks. Although the show may be a period piece, the story and characters are not frozen in time. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Oct 7, 2015
3/4 58% American Horror Story: Hotel (TV, 2015) "The cast is mostly terrific, of course, including Mare Winningham as an unhinged hotel maid. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle

Posted Sep 25, 2015
2.5/4 62% Blood & Oil: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "This is a soap opera. It may not last as long as either Dallas, but it's working the same territory. As long as the well hasn't run out, it has a modest chance of catching on. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 25, 2015
3/4 83% Quantico: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The plot is intricate and compelling, the characters magnetic and mysterious at the same time. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 25, 2015
4/4 88% Indian Summers: Series 1 (TV, 2015) "Rutman's writing, his exquisite sense of character, the subtle shadings behind even the most sexual or violent events combine for much of the way to make Indian Summers so exceptional. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle

Posted Sep 21, 2015
2/4 No Score Yet Bazillion Dollar Club: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "If it were a competition, there might be some reason to watch more than one episode, but for all the appeal of McClure's mock-tough-love patter, there doesn't seem to be much to differentiate one episode from the next. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 21, 2015

3/4 100% American Experience: Season 27 Episode 8 ""Walt Disney" is a definitive and fascinating study of what drove him to the day he died in 1966. In the process, Colt shows us how he changed the world as a byproduct of creating worlds of his own. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Sep 17, 2015
4/4 96% You're the Worst: Season 2 (TV, 2015) "Not only are the first two episodes of the new season smart, edgy and funny as hell, but Falk also has moved the story forward in a way that makes logical sense and keeps things delightfully fresh and sassy. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle

Posted Aug 28, 2015
3/4 78% Narcos: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "Virtually every performance is equal to the quality of the script, but Moura is especially compelling as he manipulates the seeming incongruities of Escobar's character to heighten his aura of unpredictable menace. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Aug 28, 2015
2.5/4 81% Public Morals: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "The overwriting keeps Public Morals from achieving the credibility level Burns is aiming for. The actors don't seem to be complaining, though, because they are having a lot of fun delivering Burns' verbal floral arrangements. " ‐ San Francisco Chronicle
Posted Aug 24, 2015
