8/10 100% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 7 "So #TeamPrison knows where Woodbury is, and #TeamWoodbury knows who's at the prison. There's a post-apocalyptic battle coming in next week's midseason finale, and it's going to make the zombies look merely like a sideshow. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8.7/10 81% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 15 "One of the best things about The Walking Dead is watching the characters struggle with ethical dilemmas that we, who are living through the zombie pre-apocalypse, haven't yet faced. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jul 29, 2015
8.6/10 67% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 11 "Sometimes it doesn't take a horde of walkers to keep the show engaging. Sometimes the scariest thing to be faced with doesn't want to eat your brain; it just wants to challenge it. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8.7/10 92% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 7 "With the convict-redneck missing and the wife-beater redneck eaten by zombies (and brained by his wife to prevent a return), this show needs a real-live villain whose face isn't peeling off. Oh, thanks, Shane. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8.7/10 75% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 5 ""Chupacabra..." is mostly devoted to the show's two most interesting characters. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jul 29, 2015
7.5/10 58% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 4 "For the most part, the episode was simply a catch of breath, and even the final twist at the end came as little surprise. We've had plenty of funerals; all we need now is a birth. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jul 29, 2015
8.3/10 69% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 2 "A freak hunting accident, a self-destructing CDC, a jagged piece of a mangled car door-it's not just zombies bringing death in the apocalypse. Everybody's got it bad, but they've still got each other. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jul 29, 2015
8.8/10 93% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 1 "We learn more about the walking dead this episode. " ‐ Paste Magazine

9.3/10 50% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 16 "What we all assumed would be the final showdown between Rick and The Governor was full of surprises. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jul 29, 2015
8/10 86% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 4 "We're only four episodes in, and so much has already happened this season. For the survivors, not much of it has been good, but for the audience, it's pretty gripping television. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jul 29, 2015
8.8/10 100% The Walking Dead: Season 3 Episode 3 "An original action hero of few words and psychopathic villain who's already scarier than a horde of zombies-this first episode without Rick Grimes promises plenty of compelling drama outside of the sheriff's new prison home. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jul 29, 2015
8.8/10 91% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 13 "It's appropriate that we've left Season 2's farm-the figurative scene of new hope and literal scene of new life-for Season 3's prison. And while I welcome the action that will come with it, part of me is glad that Dale never had to see it all come to this " ‐ Paste Magazine

7.9/10 73% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 9 "We need to suspend a little more disbelief about the specialness of Hershel's farm. It's a useful narrative device, though, as it leads to one more example of the difference between Rick and Shane-the main tension unfolding this season. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jul 27, 2015
7.9/10 83% The Walking Dead: Season 2 Episode 3 "We're back in the fields of Adam, and Cain has struck down Abel. The barbarian has returned. Shane has devolved. And The Walking Dead just got more interesting. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jul 23, 2015
8.4/10 100% The Walking Dead: Season 4 Episode 2 "We had the creepiness of zombies in prison showers and wandering the halls of Cell Block D. We had a tearful goodbye to dad (we hardly knew you). " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jun 25, 2015
7.9/10 100% The Walking Dead: Season 4 Episode 1 "This was not quite the action-packed beginning I was hoping for. Still, a decent first effort under Scott M. Gimple's new reign. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jun 16, 2015
8/10 80% The Walking Dead: Season 1 Episode 6 "After six episodes, the characters are worth caring about. Despite occasional stilted monologues, quick tempers and unfortunate stereotypes, the few living souls in The Walking Dead are a bigger draw than the undead. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8.1/10 90% The Walking Dead: Season 1 Episode 5 ""Wildfire," the fifth episode of AMC's The Walking Dead spends most of its first half doing something that no zombie movie has ever had time for-mourning. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Jun 12, 2015
7.9/10 90% The Walking Dead: Season 1 Episode 4 "The whole spectrum of human nature is on view when civilization is stripped away-the bigger the immediate threat, the more varied the response. And it's this balance between action/horror and personal drama that makes The Walking Dead so compelling. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8.3/10 91% Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 7 "There were several great moments last night, particularly at the Wall. I thought Aemon's "kill the boy" speech was fantastic. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted May 25, 2015
8.4/10 91% The Walking Dead: Season 1 Episode 3 "The episode was filled with emotional highs, from a tearful family reunion to a gruesome non-zombie ending. In fact, most of the violence was reserved for the humans. " ‐ Paste Magazine

Posted May 11, 2015
8.4/10 73% The Walking Dead: Season 1 Episode 2 ""Guts," the second episode of AMC's new zombie series, The Walking Dead, is both faster-paced and, as the title hints, gorier, than the premiere. And with about twice as many characters as episode one, we don't have time to really get to know any of them. " ‐ Paste Magazine

100% Game of Thrones: Season 5 Episode 3 "One thing that made this episode race along so engagingly was the absence of the Dragon Mother. Her story has bogged down in Mereen, and I'm glad to see the writers don't feel like every episode needs the real Kaleesi. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 95% Better Call Saul: Season 1 Episode 8 "I enjoyed the episode more than last week-Jimmy in the bathroom writing a legal writ on toilet paper was classic. But I'm not sure I loved it. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Mar 24, 2015
8.7/10 89% The Walking Dead: Season 5 Episode 14 "It was an intense episode when I was expecting a little more calm before the storm now that they're in a safe place. That's a good thing, but The Walking Dead certainly offers little mercy. " ‐ Paste Magazine

Posted Feb 24, 2015
8.2/10 78% The Walking Dead: Season 5 Episode 11 "The TV show needs the stakes to be high, but fortunately a quickly moving plot is right in the wheelhouse of comic books. " ‐ Paste Magazine

87% The Walking Dead: Season 5 Episode 6 "I'm glad to see the gang back in Atlanta. We've spent a lot of time in rural Georgia, but there's something about the urban zombiescape that I dig. Maybe it's just the lack of traffic. " ‐ Paste Magazine

7.9/10 52% Magic in the Moonlight (2014) "The result is a delightful if slight tale of romance on the Riviera, an upper-middling entry into the canon of Woody Allen that will disappoint the cynics and charm those who like to let a little hope into their lives. " ‐ Paste Magazine

87% Kung Fu Panda (2008) "When the kids are happy and I get to watch a Jack Black kung fu movie, that's good enough for me. " ‐ Paste Magazine

8.3/10 78% Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) "Sure, there are some rearranging and compressing of scenes and facts, but the two-and-a-half hour runtime for half a book allows screenwriter Steve Kloves and director David Yates the space to faithfully retell a really good story.

8.6/10 94% The King's Speech (2010) "The relationship between a commoner teacher and regal student provides for enough drama, and the obstacle overcome is both inspiring and unique. " ‐ Paste Magazine
Posted Feb 16, 2013
